Best Moments of 2020: Winter (Jan – March)

2020 sucked, and I have many profane things to say about it. Characterized by cancelled flights, home sickness, existential crises, pointless arguments, excruciating working hours, immigration purgatory, failed DIY-ing, mirror selfies, and — most obviously — the pandemic, social injustice, natural disasters, and death in general, last year was a knockout blow to the stomach, followed by a kick in…

The Perfect Picnic Outfit

Hi, all, and Happy Labor Day! I celebrated my working self this morning by shooting a flat lay of the outfit I will wear to a family picnic this afternoon. I don’t have pictures of myself wearing the outfit yet, but in the meantime, I wanted to post the flat lay just because 😁 I was looking for the perfect…

A Unique Summer Outfit for Unique Summer Feelings

I’ve been feeling strange lately, to say the least. I haven’t been unhappy. I’ve actually been happier these past few months than ever before. I just keep getting weird flashes of emotion on top of that happiness, and I don’t know how to handle them. Sudden highs and lows that catch me off guard and drain me, sometimes turn me…

Barefaced Confidence

Good morning, my beautiful darlings 💕 It’s been a while, hasn’t it? And boy, has the world changed since the last time I wrote! You know me. I haven’t been posting because I am busy. Shocker!

Understanding and Doing Good (And Hiking)

In light of the legend, I wanted to take a sec before my post and share with you words from a speech MLKJ gave at Cornell College in 1962: “I am convinced that men hate each other because they fear each other. They fear each other because they don’t know each…

A Reflection on the Last Decade (And the New One! Happy New Year!)

As I write this, it’s New Year’s Eve, and work is dead. It hasn’t been this slow since I started the job almost two years ago. I can’t believe it’s already been two years. Time is going so incredibly fast, and, yet, I also feel time is passing so slow. I’m already 23, but also, it took this long to…

The Bees and the Trees

I know those are all pretty much the same picture, but I honestly couldn’t weed any out. Nature is just so beautiful. I swear, every time I step outside, I take at least a few pictures of my surroundings, whether I’m in the middle of the woods, standing barefoot on a beach, or walking down the sidewalk of a city.…
