Prada Art Installation in Marfa, Texas

If I am being completely honest, I had no idea this was an art installation at first. I totally just thought it would be a functioning Prada store in the middle of nowhere. I had been wanting to shoot here for forever! SAD STORY : I asked my dad to take a short detour on our drive back to California just so I could come here to shoot and when we got closer I was looking for my camera and realized that I left it Texas! I am still lowkey devastated if I am being completely honest…

Anyway, I was able to do what I had to and took pictures using my horrible iPhone. It literally overheated the phone every time and I had to delete so many things just so I could take a few bursts. It was horrible! Okay.. rant over.

I’ve been getting more into art pieces because of my job. It is honestly interesting, and while I still struggle to fully comprehend it all, it’s a good challenge for me! This installation is by Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset.

New Edits + Joshua Tree National Park

I have seen everyone selling presets all over Instagram and I guess you can say I fell into the trap. I needed something new for Fall and I am going for a cooler, edgier vibe for my looks so it just went well. I am still trying to find the balance of what is too much of a filter and what is just right, so stay tuned for that!

On another note, I want to start doing cute collages and add stars and gold accents to my photos, so if you or anyone you know knows how to do that, email me!

I was able to drag my dad to Joshua Tree National Park and I was very excited to take pictures! I definitely want to go back and go hiking, it was truly beautiful! The only thing I didn’t like was how my pictures did not do it justice showing off the beauty!

This skirt is my absolute favorite! What’s your absolute favorite piece in your closet?

What I learned from living in LA

I really wanted to document a lot more of my summer in LA. I’m lucky enough to be able to extend my stay until the fall! I think what I learned from LA does not have much to do with Los Angeles itself, but from moving to another city and not knowing a lot of people. It really helped me grow as an individual and if you asked me a year ago if I would be here I would have probably responded saying, yeah that would be super cool! But I am proud of myself for actually doing this! So being able to learn so much and look back at this part of my life later on will be amazing. Okay onto what I learned…

  1. Not everyone is your friend : People are not all the same as what you are used to at home. There really is so many different personalities to each area. Just roll with it and stay you.
  2. Make friends ASAP : This is more of a safety thing, you can do it on your own but you should not have to. That’s kinda like my motto if I’m being honest.
  3. You have to learn your surroundings : Know where you can go for a walk, the best thai restaurant, and where Uber picks you up and drops you off
  4. I learned to be independent : I never really knew what it meant to have a real job before, so this was a totally new experience over all
  5. You learn to appreciate home : you get to miss what you don’t have and who is not around, so it makes it more special when you go back.
