Hi all. Happy Sunday. It’s the last day of April 2017. I can’t believe how fast the year is flying by! Just wanted to do a quick post showing some pictures I took yesterday in that black silver cold shoulder dress I bought from Nordstromrack back in February. I wanted to make a video to upload to the facebook page for my album project, so I was doing some testing yesterday. (Note: The background in the picture isn’t my home. It’s a stock photo)

Posing in the black and silver cold shoulder dress Saturday April 29 2017 – yes, my photo editor did some work to improve my pictures. But I do have to say, the collagen tonic I’m drinking everyday is working wonders in helping me repair the damage done from over a decade of insomnia and depression and the normal ravages of aging.

I wasn’t sure how I felt about cold shoulder apparel before I acquired this dress. But I think I like the look. Maybe I’ll get me another cold shoulder dress or top soon.

Another picture of me posing in the black and silver cold shoulder dress on Saturday April 29 2017. I know smiling is a hazard for aging women because it accelerates the development of laugh lines. But I’m making up for all the smiling I was too self-conscious and embarrassed to do when I was young. I think getting enough sleep, drinking enough water, and finding anti-aging products that actually do what they say should help keep the laugh lines away or at least minimize them. No need to avoid smiling.

Album project update: I have been working hard on my album project. My goal is to be finished by my next birthday in November. But I’ve been consulting with a musician/producer who tells me it could be 2018 before my album is ready. I hope I will be able to keep going for that long because I will be honest with you, trying to make an album when you’re not the greatest singer in the world and you’re not young enough or beautiful enough to compensate for your mediocre singing ability can be a pretty daunting experience.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
