Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh

I was looking in my drafts, and came across this post that I was so excited to talk about but never got around to finishing, so I felt like reviving it today. These photos are from the Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh exhibit at the Saatchi Gallery in London. I’ve been thinking about London a lot lately, and missing my weekly adventures. This was one of my coolest adventures yet. I’ve been interested in ancient Egypt since I was about 8 years old. I read every ancient Egyptian kids book, went to exhibitions, watched videos and documentaries, you name it. I was so invested and loved it because their way of life was just so different and seemed to have so much meaning and purpose. I could go on forever about what I learned growing up but I don’t want to bore you haha. Anyway, this exhibit was cool because the last time I’d gone to a Tutankhamun exhibit I was about 7 in Chicago. I didn’t really remember much (my dad found a souvenir I got from that time which was soo cool) so it was nice to see things in a new light and understand more. There we’re objects on display that had never been taken out of Egypt before which was really cool, and of course I took more photos that the ones I’m leaving for you below. But have a scroll! It’s all so interesting to look at, even if you don’t know the backstory. I’m not sure if the exhibit will still be in London after the pandemic but definitely check it out if you have the chance!

The Butterfly Effect 2

Part 2 from my butterfly photoshoot series.

I love coming up with concepts and modeling them myself. I love styling people and producing other shoots, but I also love being in front of the camera, because I get to create the kind of outcome I want, you know? It’s one of my only ways of creative expression, I love it.

Manchester

24 hours in Manchester…

I recently spend 24 hours in Manchester visiting my sister, and I was so surprised by how my I enjoyed. First and foremost, let’s talk about the Intu Trafford Center shopping mall. THE most amazing mall I’ve ever seen/been to in my life. Not to mention, that I found a stall with the best candy floss I’ve tasted. My sister and I haven’t spent much time together before this trip, so it was nice to do a bit of retail therapy, get lunch, and take busses and ubers all over Manchester for a day.

Later that night, we went mini golfing at the Roxy Ballroom, which was one of the hardest mini golf coursed I’ve done, but it was so fun and I really enjoyed it.

Over the summer, I was apart of a photoshoot for an up and coming local skincare brand, created by a lovely friend of mine. The shoot was so dreamy and the photos came out so beautiful, that I wanted to share them on here, as I can’t post them all on instagram haha. So have a look through and enjoy.

The View

Always be grateful..

While my parents were in London, we went out to Westminster to meet with my dad’s friend. The sun was shining, and the breeze was perfect, and I just had a moment where I felt extremely grateful. I always feel grateful, but this time was so different. I just felt like I was exactly where I was meant to be, and I was doing everything I’m meant to, and I rarely have that feeling. The second photo is the background of the first photo, through my eyes. And what I saw while I was thinking about everything it took for me to get to where I am now. There’s not many photos in this post, but I just felt like sharing 🙂

JLO

the ultimate birthday celebration..

For my mom’s birthday, we went to Miami for JLO’s birthday party concert, and it was such an amazing concert. It was about 3 hours long and for being 50 years old, she was unreal. Beautiful, energetic, and passionate after all these years still. She did about 10 outfit changes, and had so many touches to her show that made it personal and one of a kind. She’s a triple threat, and it’s so awesome to see someone so talented in person.

Terrible photo, but the only picture I have of my outfit for the night

Chelsea Flower Show

Here are some photos of the beautiful displays at the Chelsea Flower Show

Here are some photos of the beautiful displays at the Chelsea Flower Show in Sloane Square. The theme this year was ocean conservation themed so there were jellyfish, dolphins, turtles, octopus and more made entirely of plants/flowers!

Bristol

took a quick day trip to Bristol and fell in love.. here are some things I saw there

I’ve never been to Bristol before this, and didn’t really know what to expect. It was suck a laid back and genuinely cool place and I loved the difference in the vibe compared to London. It was full of creative art and skateboarders all over town. Below are some of the places I explored!
