aloha saturday? sunday? book nerds 😓 @tediously_brief here, delirious from a stressful trip to milan, italy for our northern italy road trip. it’s been a rocky start. we got started pretty great, arrived to the airport early, time to get tea, eat dinner, shop at duty free, & made it onto our place. then apparently our hydraulics had failed & the pilots preferred the milan–mxp runway to the milan–linate runway, as it was wider & longer. but it was also over an hour away, & our rental car place closed hours before we finally arrived at LIN (which was around 12:35am). we tried to see if we could get accommodated at the one rental car place that had just closed, but we need an automatic transmission, & that’s super rare to rent out here. if only we could matrix learn how to drive a manual our lives would be so much easier. but apart from the shuttles, british airways basically did nothing for us. sure shuttles are a nice gesture, but the round trip uber cost plus eating a night of our rental car fee in addition to that, isn’t nothing, & we were still lucky because we had planned on crashing in milan our first night so we could get an early start on driving out to lake garda. clearly, that’s not happening as planned. 😑 i was so livid, & starving. but now I’m showered in a bed listening to rick & morty on netflix italy, trying not to start watching making a murderer part two which apparently dropped whilst we were stuck in this terribly stressful situation. like yes, i’m thankful we’re alive & safe, but like... ugh. not ideal.
anyway, i’m so sad i didn’t do all the fun harry potter & doctor who stuff i wanted to do, but i know now that i just need to prep more in advance, like reserve tkts to the @wbtourlondon harry potter tour 1-2 months in advance. hahaha. i laugh, but inside i am sobbing uncontrollably 😭 bahaha! but because london is amazing, there was a Harry Potter store right through security. i wanted all the things, but i’m flying back to LA through london again next weekend, so i figure i’ll wait until then to do the heavy hp store damage 😂
QOTD: what is one hp item you are dying to own?
for me, it’s the travel suitcase trunk we saw!
This support collection will be going to helping families dealing with issues that come from being undocumented and the the great cost that can come along with lawyers in this process. We will be donating 100% of profits to organizations within the local community and else where that dedicate their time to providing legal support to these families in need of help having their voices heard! Fortune Zoo wants to be a company that stands behind its beliefs and is not afraid to show support to causes it believes in!
Sometimes all you need in your life is a shift in personal perspective ✌🏼🤩
Never stop pushing yourself to do/be better and by no means am I saying to “change your scenery”. Simply shift your focus 🤷🏼♀️ make and set your priorities. Don’t be afraid to chase big dreams and don’t shy away from great opportunities.

I really didnt want to take the first picture, i realized it was such a cliché but after i took it im walking away creatively uninspired , a cloud began to cover the sun& it only left a hint of light hitting the bridge..it was the perfect timing, it spoke to me .. moral of the story, dont give up just because its taking longer than anticipated to accomplish something 🍂
10/19/18 — day 488 // we went out to party hard for the lovely @indira.elisa and ash over here got a little bit #whitegirlwasted ! it was super fun to hang out with all of my ladies and to finally introduce allen to everyone. i had a blast and was super happy allen cruised with me. there are A LOT of fun pictures from the night too (: it was a wonderful evening overall but i definitely didn’t make it to taco bell.
You know how walking home alone at night is kinda terrifying when you’re a smol female bean?😳 Try doing that in a new city without any form of protection on you!! I left my pepper spray back home and have regretted it fully. ⚡️
I get so frustrated with this feeling of helplessness and I wish I could just snap my fingers and make the world treat women and all other people better, but the best solution right now is to just carry protection with me.
Thanks to @sabresafety for sending me some pepper spray and other goodies so that I can feel safer in DC. And now that I’m in NYC for a short trip to #CollegeFashionWeek with the #InfluenceHerCollective , I’m doubly happy to have it on me. Head to my stories to see more of College Fashion Week! #SafeisSmart#ad
