Thank you 2012

I wanted to take a moment to Stand back & thank 2012.
At times, you were difficult & gave me the kind of Challenges I didn't think I could overcome.
But Struggle builds Character.
And I truly believe this.
You bestowed upon me my second child,
Baby Emery, his little sister,
Valentina adores him.
You also blessed me with another year with My husband, Kaz.
We've gone through more trials & tribulations than we've ever been through in the past.
My family is in tact.
This company & environment I'm building is for them & I is turning into a marvelous thing.
Allow me to take a Bow & thank you for Everything you put me the through.
The Good & The Bad.
Dear 2013, I hope me & you build a Phenomenal next chapter.
Sincerely, Karla V.

Sometimes a collaboration a fellow artist is necessary. When both of you are very similar yet oddly different you feel the need to work with one another.

Kittrell Cage x KarlaVaVaVoom

Once again, I had the pleasure to embark into another industry adventure & I was hired to do make up for a Kittrell Cage shoot.
Must saying it was refreshing to meet someone new & also to meet someone who has clear vision of what he wants & how to achieve the attitude he wants in his pictures.
We shot at V'Dara & the model herself was just a beautiful as the structure itself
Tall, with small curves & a beautiful frame. I leave you with some BTS (Behind The Scene footage)

4:12am Ramblings lol

Hello Earthlings.
Feel like I haven't wrote an entry on my blog in much too long.
I scribble & jot thoughts & words down quite often but I never manage to have the mental clarity to actually put it on here.
I've been told my love for social media is due to how easy it is to channel creative energy through out it.
To think that at one point in time, all these thoughts we have on a minute to minute basis, were just stagnant in our mind. We had no way to tweet, post, update or text our many thoughts.
I've been extremely successful & productive in my personal life lately.
To make it brief I recently turned 24 years of age. GASP!
Yes I still can't believe I'm 24 either.
An even more shocking in this day & age is that I recently had the privilege to celebrate my 1 year wedding anniversary. Yes. An ENTIRE year.
In generation past, that might not be impressive but in an era where if its broke, we don't fix it, we throw it away.... A whole year of marriage & children is quite a feat!
So don't mind me if I seem preoccupied, I am. Maybe not so much in the professional aspect but the foundation I'm setting is Beautiful. Je'Taime Pequenos Monstros.

Missed Calls.

Lets fill you in.
I almost died last week.
No that's not a joke.

Almost dying puts certain things into perspective.
What's important & what's not.
Who still holds your emotions & who no longer does.
What have you accomplished so far?
& what would they say at your funeral?

Deep shit right?
Well that's what happens.
I came to realize that I've live quite a bit considering my 24th birthday is coming up on November 23rd.
Maybe if I talked to a seasoned world traveler they would laugh when I say that I feel I've lived.
Maybe because in my mind LIVING means giving your life meaning.
The meaning of my life are my kids & family. So far my babies are amazing. So If that would have left the earth that day I would feel semi accomplished.
Maybe my mind set is off but money, the dream job, fancy cars & designer labels are things you can't take with you & in some way, your kids meet up with you in "heaven" later in life.
Am I thinking too much into this?
Maybe yes.
But the look & texts my husband sent me before & after the paramedics came to get me, while I was rocking my son in a puddle of blood & the face he made when he walked into my hospital room, confirmed to me that he loved me.
I have a lot of LIFE left to live but the moral of this deep & self rambling story is: Your time here isn't promised. Your on borrowed time. The rug could be pulled from under you at any point. MAKE SURE the STORY that replays back to you at the END of your Journey is WORTH WATCHING.

I'm baccccccckkkk.
& handy with the rope.

Came up with a concept for a Photoshoot that was quite outta the box.

Just because you listen to 2Chainz doesn't make you gangster.
Talk a big game, expect big things.

Remember Skinny Bitches Fit In Cadillac Trunks & I look faboo in all black.

Seems like all the wrong people are saying the wrong things.
But then again talk is cheap, actions are #Expensive
& so is a Ransom.

Misunderstood & I don't have 2 F**ks to give.

At times I feel as though I'm disliked by people because they dont understand me.

I'm not one to think much of what people say. I tend to act freely & do as I please.
Is it because I'm weird? Or because I don't do as people want me to.

Everyone told me not to marry. To play the field & work on my career.
Let me explain one thing:
When a great thing, scratch that.
When a marvelous person comes along and offers you an infinite amount of love for you & your daughter,
A real woman can acknowledge that.
I take responsibility for all my decision.
But I'm by far happier now than I have ever been in the past.
I'm Karla Va Va Voom.
Curves. Big Mouth. Weirdness.
Blunt Honesty & ALL.

Valentina Ballerina is now 3.

To think that it's been 3 years since I was blessed with Valentina still amazes.
Amidst post training, tea parties, & life lessons, I feel as though Valentina has taught me the most important one:

Time is a gift, & one that goes by quickly.

Remember to always appreciate those around you.
Last month I had a Cancer scare due to having Ovarian problems. The thought of not being able to be their for both Valentina, Emery & my husband scared me beyond belief.

As of lately ive realized that all the little things, the good days & bad, are still days your given none the less.

So to be able to stand here & see my daughter turn 3 & realize how intelligent, beautiful & full of personality she is.. Is the ultimate gift.

Thank you Valentina for everything you've taught me.
DaddyTy & myself will try our hardest to make you the best person you can be.

They only Love you when they Need you.

Why is it moths only come to the flame when it's lit?
Yet when it's not flickering the moths can fly by & never notice it?

This happen in humans also.
People only want your company when your relevant & successful.

Now if that's the case, make sure that the moment you do hit your prime you have the RIGHT people surrounding you, who truly have your best interest at heart.

Remember, never bite the hand that feeds you or the heart that heals you.

Being given love is a blessing & a
opportunity that not everyone has a been offered.

So remember this, when your "Popular" & your flame is bright, all kinds of insects & moths will come to you.
But make sure your light is attracting the right ones.

Everyone LOVES you when they Need you. But when hungry or need not everyone will Feed you.

The truth about marriage

Now when your picking out a wedding gown & he's getting fitted for a tux, no one is going to tell you the truth about marriage.

For one reason & one reason only.
Marriage takes hard work.
You sign on to stand by someone with flaws & hope try accept yours.

In the old days people use to stay married for years & years til one person buried another, NOW people go through spouses like I go through socks.
And I have TONS of fuzzy socks. Lol

No but seriously I believe that in this day & age, where everything has been made so easy & you can see if the "grass is supposibly greener" on the other side with a click of a button... The thought of standing by ONE person forever seems ridiculous.

Sometimes people do Marry someone hoping they would change or they just marry the Wrong person.

& that's just fine. I Understand that.
Trust me.

Marriage is promising someone you'll fight by their side, and at times you'll fight them. But at the end of the day your a team, you swore to each other till death do you part.

There will be days when you can't stand your mate, the way he folds his napkin will irk you, or if he doesn't put the cap on the toothpaste.
But marriage is bigger than that.

Remember all the reasons why you walked down to the alter with the person you chose.

There will be days when the spark isn't as bright or the butterflies aren't flapping as hard as usual.

At the end of the Day, you love eachother. I'm blessed with a husband who maybe a pain in the butt at times, but even when things get tough, he reminds me that we promised to fight together.

We never say the dreaded "D" word in our house. (div--ce)
That's not an option in our house.
We have 2 babies who love us & think we're the disney prince & princess in the movies.
And We plan on keeping it that way

No matter how hard things might get. I swore to stand by his side, & him by mine.
That's all that matters.

We meet again.
The names KarlaVaVaVoom & the pleasure is all mine. Lol.

Well decided to do an impromptu photoshoot... In between the kids, husband & dabbling in a few small businesses, it's refreshing to be able to feel sexy & let that inner VaVaVoom as they say come out.

I'm more comfortable in my own skin now that I'm older. Oh the irony.

Greater, Equal to or Lesser than?

Is your partner the equivalent of you?

Now be careful how you answer that because you might end up humping the couch tonight depending on your response. Lol.

You always see couples where one is, how can I say this politely... Superior. No. A better person? No. Less Flawed? No that's not it either.
A Better Half.
There you go.

However, what happens when both people seem to be practically equal?

Both are personable with big personalities, motivated, ambitious & dare I say competitive. Now on top of that, let's say their both 'Easy on The Eyes'.

How does that dynamic work?
Let me just say its not easy. It's somewhat of a power struggle. He def. has a dominant alpha male way of being but then again, I've always been a alpha female, a LATINA alpha female at that. Yes. I'm a bossy hot blooded mess at times. Lol.

It takes LOTS of patience.
Did I say Lots what I meant was COLOSSAL amounts of patience.

Trying to find the balance in a relationship is never easy.
Especially when your in it for the long haul, throw in babies & a house & bills.

He's going to have his weaknesses & strengths. You have to be able to adapt. One day you'll have to help him up & brush his shoulders off & give him a smack on the ass to pep him up.
If your willing to put In the work, the day you need a shoulder to cry, an extra hand around the house or just a gentle caress after a long day... Your Other half will be there for you.

So is your partner equivalent to you? Maybe not exactly. But 2lbs of apples are equivalent to 2lbs of bananas aren't they? Your both completely different but god willing, your equal in each others eyes.

Questionable White Girl.

I'm usually not a fan of super skinny girls. But when a skinnie Minnie has pizzaz to her. How can you not like her? Her antics & sobriety at times are a questionable as the people she surrounds herself with but I can't help the fact...
That I have a crush on Kate Moss.

Las Vegas Divorce *Andre 3000 voice

The Las Vegas Divorce
"the separation of two people who use to show love to one another. Etc: friends, family, man & wife. Business associates."

I've divorced many people in the last few years. Lol.
Sounds comical on paper, actually on paper it's expensive.
$948 expensive. Lmao.

No but what I meant is 'Metaphorically'
I've divorced many 'friends & acquaintances', sometimes it's been their fault, sometimes mine. Maybe a few have been mutual.
& one or two have been for my own good.
There will be times, when snipping people outta your life will help you blossom into a better person.

Like a Rose bush, a rose bush needs to be pruned of dead leaves & dry flowers, if not, it will not expand & reach it's full potential.

In Vegas, especially, losing friends & associates is the norm. In a city where people come make their profit & leave, what can we expect. Ever since elementary school, my best friend in every grade was different.

In a town built on the loose morals, ego & self centered ideals what can we expect. If we've divorced, I apologize & I filed the paperwork in a little cabinet in my heart.

But like the saying goes
"I asked god to protect me from my enemies & I started losing friends."

So if you've had a 'Las Vegas Divorce' recently, don't look back, your future is ahead of you.

(Inspired by Outkast's 'Hollywood Divorce')

Where are you now? No VH1

Ever stop & look back to where you've been & can't believe you made it to your current destination?
Well that's where I'm located.
I think back to where I was a year, 5 years ago, even 10 years ago from now & I'm blessed to say that love my current destination.

I couldn't have mapped it out better.

I have the two children I've always dreamed of.

I gave birth to my son, Emery Rayne, on February 5th, 2012, which is why I decided to take a break last year.

Also last year on November 13, 2011
I had a very small 20 person wedding & became Kaz's wife.

So once again,
What do you do when you've accomplished your version of your happily ever after?
Grab another pen & start on Volume II it's time for me to work on my penmanship & begin my next few chapters.
I'm talented, thats not cocky, That's the truth. It's my time.
I have Valentina & Emery on each hand, & Kaz has my back & my heart.

Watch me write a Classic.
