I believe in love. It’s permanence I’m not so certain of.
Last year I posted a small series of images that illustrated my experience with depression and anxiety. It resonated with quite a few people, so I felt that it was something I should continue to build upon. I worked on it all semester as part of a portfolio class, and while it was a ton of work, I’m glad I was able to do it.
Mental health disorders are such a taboo topic. If you ever bring it up in conversation, people awkwardly get silent, or try to tell you why it’s not a real problem. When I was in the worst parts of depression, the most helpful thing anyone could have done was to just listen to me - not judging, not trying to find a solution, just listen. I’m hoping that these images will help open up conversation about mental health issues. Everyone is or will be affected by them one way or another, and ignoring them doesn’t make things better.

"it’s a mess"- basically everything in my life rn so here’s a stupid selfie becuz i’m having a v good hair day despite the rain and humidity
Like (almost) everyone else, we adore the classic French girl style. From the beautiful streets of Paris to the delicious street crepes, we are seriously obsessed. So we have taken matters (and our obvious obsession) into our own hands and we have created a look that puts all of our favourite elements into one french girl inspired look. Although the French usually like their articles of clothing lose, we have decided to put our own spin on it. We have paired our black and white long sleeved crop tee with a pair of black high waisted skinny jeans (all of which are super form fitting), black leather flats, and a pair of tortoise sunglasses. And don’t worry, we couldn’t forget the classic red lip. This look is perfect for almost any occasion, from a date to a casual stroll in Central Park. Now if this look doesn’t scream French girl inspired, we don’t know what does!
