Hi there!

Hi there! Welcome to my corner of the internets. I'm a 26 year old therapist, photographer, and shop owner currently living in Seattle, Washington. My online spaces are educational and lifestyle accounts dedicated to educating, engaging, and empowering women through digital art, home design, and travel.... with a touch of humor and personality sprinkled throughout. Stay a while!

I wish my name was Katie.
I also wish I lived in London or Seattle.
Or maybe someplace with a lot of strangers. Like, thousands.
I would never see the same person twice.
Variety would be optimal.

Ok. Babies in movies. Are they real? Like when the woman has literally JUST had her baby, and it's all gooey still. Is that a real baby or like, some sort of doll?
Also, why did Queen Latifah change her first name to be Queen? And why did she make a movie entitled Just Wright? And why was it even in theatres? And did anyone even go to see it? Did they commit suicide afterwards or stop believing in love?
Why do parents have their kids on leashes?
Why does everyone hate Draco Malfoy? I find him attractive.
Why am I still typing?

Kilby Court is the best place ever. The first time I ever went there was when I saw He Is We. They were amazing. As was The Glass Gentlemen who opened for them, (they aren't together anymore, sadly). Then I went to Phantogram there and that was amazing. I was right next to the speaker. Like literally, the speaker was about a foot away from my face. It was amazing. Honestly, I don't think I've ever experience anything as cool as when they played You Are The Ocean. I'm going to Rooney in February. I'm quite excited.
Please go there.

Symbolism anyone?

Cardigan: Nordstrom's
Dress and belt: Forever 21
Tights: Macy's
Socks: My mother's sock drawer.
By the way, my bracelet (which you can't see because of my ghetto camera (let's call her meg!)) is amazing. I got it at this tahitian store in Washington. The character on it is om. Click here if you'd like to read more about it. It's quite interesting.

You think these material things bring me happiness in my life, when all they really do is tell me you honestly don't care. So I sit here at my desk and I try to pretend that everything's fine. Yeah all my problems are irrelevant because when it comes down to it; everyone's selfish. Just searching for someone to give them their next fix. Well see, I'm done with games, I'm done with sealed ears. So take anything you want from me and I won't see you in coming years.

I keep trying to create something beautiful, but my feeble attempts fall short every time. I stare up at the ceiling remembering all those people who are gone now. They all spoke pretty words and tore a piece of myself from my body, “for safe keeping”, they said. But now they're all gone, and so am I. The only thing that's left of me is distorted beauty trying to remember what it was like to win the pageant. But there's no such thing anymore, at least not for me.

I wish my camera wasn't so ghetto. Gheeeeeettooo. Gheeettoooo. (Do you remember the lovely days where listening to Akon was actually cool?) But I'm getting a new one soon. Also, I loved them. Look at them!! Honestly... These are the type of people I need for my coffee shop. Or just in general.


I'm in love. With strangers. Honestly. Is this creepy? Taking photographs of people I've never met? Yes. But you know what; sometimes art is creepy.

Confession: I secretly want to open up a small coffee shop in a rainy town outside Seattle. All the employees will be incredibly fashionable. The girls will wear tights and the boys will wear sweatervests. All the coffee will be served in mismatching mugs. Various pastries will be offered as well. There will be a couch and armchairs. There will also be two scribble books, where people can write/draw/rant whatever their little heart desires.

We went ice skating in Spokane. The cold air is always so refreshing. I love it there. Winter is the most amazing season. And I love my grandmother's cats. Maybe I'll post my picture with Zoey tomorrow. Why do old people always have cats? And why do all young people hate cats? I don't understand. I personally want one of those hairless cats... What? They're really soft ok.

Seattle is my ideal setting. I belong there. Hopefully the University of Washington accepts me. Rainy days, indie coffee shops, homeless people, fashion, art, inspiration... I cannot wait to move there.

The market in Ballard was amazing. It confirmed my dream of living there.

It's a rare occasion to see nicely dressed males living here. I thought I'd take advantage of this opportunity. I want to marry the boy on the left.
