Mornings Are for Mimosas

Tuesday, October 6, 2015 / , , , , ,

Shop the post:

Mornings are for mimosas and awesome local brands! Royalty Rags is an Arizona based brand, ran by two very lovely people who put "bits of their heart, soul, and passion" into their tees. This tank is one of the softest shirts I own and is highly breathable and comfy. Be prepared to want to sleep, eat, and live in these tanks. Also, they come with cheeky sayings that are relatable to just about anyone.
Go give them some love!

Isn't it funny how things come back in style? I'm not talking about middle parts and flared jeans. 

My grandfather came to visit this past weekend from Oregon and we got to talking about how my generation likes to have tangible objects and experiences we can feel. How we like to feel the book in our hand rather than purchase an ebook, smell the pages worn down from years being leafed through and dogeared. How we now long to collect vinyls that were once traded out for tapes and then CDs and later files that could be downloaded from iTunes or pirated online. But now we love the crackly sound, heavy with white noise and complete with the shaky breaths taken between notes. How we want polaroids the size of our palms to stick to our walls or put in match tins to pull out later at social gatherings and show what you chose to take a photo of for a dollar per frame.

It's funny how we have this nostalgia for a time we weren't even there for. How we want everything in bulk and real rather than one dimensional. I know I love sitting late at night when I can't sleep and looking over my book collection and rearranging them into my favorites, the classics, and my stack of books to read next. I love the act of flipping my vinyl over to play side B. And I love waiting for my picture to develop before my eyes brightening from black.

So why is it that my generation has this nostalgia?

Instagram Recap

Tuesday, September 29, 2015 / , , , , , ,

I always find it interesting going back through my instagram posts from this month and seeing which photos are my follower's favorites versus my favorites. As far as my favorites go, I enjoy the pictures of me and my boyfriend and the photos that are taken by professional photographers, rather than selfies. But, my following always seems to respond more to a selfie than a professional photo and I think I have figured out why!

Your followers like to know that you are a real person. They want to see you as obtainable, and if all you do is post professional photos that have gone through editing and most likely hair and makeup, then it isn't the true you that people see you as day-to-day. My selfies, however, are taken that same day and posted after adding a filter using VSCO cam and is a more accurate representation of who I am and what I look like in real life.

So these are my top posts this month on instagram... with the selfie being #1.

Do you follow me along on instagram?

Perhaps you should!

Killer Swimwear

Summer is slowly fading and I took my last swim this past weekend. Dog sitting for a family with a pool means I take full advantage of it before I go back to my community pool at my apartment complex, one that I do not dare step foot in. Well, this beautiful pool made for the perfect opportunity to shoot some cool pictures in my new swimsuit from Killer Swimwear, made from Neoprene and meant to stick to you rather than fly off or ride up when taking a dip. This suit also comes in a blue color, just so you know!
