I snapped these shots while I was suppose to be picking up my brother at the airport. I was a little late but obviously it was well worth it. :)

Menta is spanish for mint if you didn't know. When I was driving I spotted this gorgeous mint building and was drawn to it like a moth to a flame. I'm used to just finding spaces I like and shooting to my hearts content, even if that means people stare and wonder what the heck I'm doing...which all the tenants of this complex did...ah well ^_^

It sort of comes with the territory as I'm sure you know. I had to get over that shyness a long time ago and honestly it's helped a lot in my creative career and has gotten me to come out of my shell in so many ways.

I'm actually running late to a Pathfinder game and don't wanna keep my friends waiting so I got to gooo!!! We all know how long it takes to create a character so time is of the essence.

Talk soon peeps ;)

Shifting into a new style aesthetic. Here's an inspiration board I made to show how this look comes to life.

Something I've learned about minimalism is that it stems from the idea that we can consume less by wearing staple pieces that work well together. I'm going to try and do just that. (except I'm not sticking with the standard monochromatic color palette but extending it out to a palette inspired by the Sahara Desert).

Rah rah sis boom bah!

(for those who'll appreciate this factoid: Princeton's "rocket," "sis-boom-ah" cheer of 1869, is an imitation of the sound of a fireworks display - 'sis' (the launch), 'boom' (the explosion) and 'ah' (the crowd's reaction) [3]

There are a lot of changes happening in my life and I feel really good about it. I'm excited to see myself changing and growing into this next phase in my life.

I'm currently shifting to a new aesthetic so you might see some minute changes here and there in a lot of things. Now that I've moved away from the farmland and forestry, and after a summer in Brooklyn I'm ready to transition into someone that fully reflects those experiences.

I know all of this sounds vague and sounds like I'm preparing you for some sort of revolution but I can't not share everything that goes on in my noggin with you all. I might do a post soon explaining my aesthetic shift a bit more. I'm just excited about the future guys lol even when it feels so self indulgent to be so deep in happiness. I'm just grateful for good change I guess.

Whenever I do that aesthetics post though, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.

It's my favorite time of year, Hexmas time!!! Oh, you haven't heard of Hexmas? It's only the greatest convergence of our favorite holidays rolled into one fun loving 3 month long event....yeah...I made all of this up, but I'm pretty sure our society is heading that way regardless, which I definitely don't mind. Then the pumpkin spiciness would never need to end!

I'm actually a huge scaredy cat when it comes to Halloween/"scary"ness...I rarely watch gory films....because it gives me nightmares. Halloween makes it hard for me to avoid it and I'm running out of excuses to tell people why I can't watch The Shining....but I'm becoming a big girl and am gonna go for it this year. (hides under covers)

All of the candy in my mouth and friends around me will muffle my shrieks of terror though. Happy Hexmas everyone!
