I never remembered the name of the lookout I stumbled into on my crazy roadtrip last year but I’m so glad I stumbled into it again on this years crazy roadtrip! ⛰😍
The weather was still struggling to clear but that didn’t stop me from reuniting with the rock that has been through so much with me. We’ve been featured in interviews and blogs around the world, dragged by my first ever online trolls/haters yet showered with love from all of you gorgeous people putting up with my nonsense and well, that’s pretty much it haha. Anyway funky rock, I miss you already but I’m sure I’ll stumble across you again soon😂
Yes, this @rainbirdclothing parka will continue to be in 90% of my NZ pics but what’s YOUR favourite winter essential?
"Sometimes our lives have to be completely shaken up, changed, & rearranged to relocate us to the place we're meant to be." So many things to look forward to over the next few months. This "transitional period" has been hard. Really really freaking hard. Anyone who knows me knows that I'm ridiculously impulsive.. to a fault. I run away from uncomfortable situations. I have a hard time staying in the same place/job/project/text conversation for more than two seconds. I change my mind on how I feel about everything almost daily. I self-sabotage. I do really reckless things. These oh so attractive qualities are often a result of my BPD running the show (but hey, at least I'm self-aware 😂) My therapist has compared me to "a Ferrari with bicycle brakes". That being said, staying at home in Portland over the last few months has been SO difficult. All I want to do is run to a place where there are lots of distractions.. where I don't have to deal with all of the uncomfortable feelings. But I'm fighting every impulsive bone in my body because I know that I'm doing something that's really healthy for me right now. I'm giving myself space to focus on ME. I'm finally giving myself something to look forward to that isn't a person. I'm showing up for myself and working on the projects that I've always wanted to work on. I have more good days than bad.. which is something I couldn't say a couple of months ago.
I know that pretty soon I'll end up building a home base out in LA. But for now I'm grateful for Portland and all the lessons I'm learning out here. ❤️
Most people believe in Procaffeinating (n):the tendency to not start anything until you've had your daily coffee.
But I... I believe in cake consumption. Like Mary Antoinette supposedly said in 1789 on the brink of the French revolution * or actually what the Spanish queen Maria Teresa uttered:
"Let them eat cake". (__________________________)
I love cafe culture. Particularly in Paris* but Canberra has a burgeoning cafe scene too.
Head to The Knox in leafy north area of Watson. Great for brunches, lunches and...tarts.
Special mention to the small but mighty Portuguese tarts. Worth the trip to Watson, I tell you.
I say eat cake like no one is watching* as well as dance. 'Cause they aren't. They are addicted to their phones* double tap ❤
e s s e n t I a l s ✈️ Planning the trip and actually going certainly take the cake in terms of fun, but having what you need is absolutely essential. The trick is making sure you have all of the things you need without over-preparing. Stick to the bare necessities and all will be grand. ✌🏼
So, I’ve visited the #louvre before and it really was so crowded and loud I couldn’t truly enjoy myself. This time, I scurried over earllllyyy and what do ya know, no crowds and plenty of opportunities to snap some amazing pictures! #paris#travel#feelingparisian
"Be Thankful for what you have, be fearless for what you want". What are you fearlessly wanting?
On my last trip to NYC, I headed down to the Financial District and saw the Fearless Girl statue. I love wandering around the city and people watching. It is always so interesting to see how the locals and tourists interact with the city. So next time you visit, head down to this statue and think about what you are fearlessly wanting.
Wake up your adventurous soul! There is a beautiful world out there waiting to look into your eyes. Are you ready to set your sails and trust the wind guide your way?
This picture was taken at the canals in Venice, LA. It is a cosy and romantic area full of colours and details! On the canals you can also observe some pretty peculiar properties and characters that can only spark your curiosity about this neighbourhood even more.
Estoy en una etapa de mi vida donde solo quiero rodearme de personas y situaciones, que me ayuden a crecer. Donde busco hacer, comer y pensar sólo cosas que me hagan feliz.
