Taking a break from Scotland photos to serve you this summer hair realness, brought to you by @tressesby_cristinadanielle at @hairbysusy. When I walked into the shop, I was greeted with a hug, and it all went upward from there! Grateful to be inspired by such talented, enterprising, and beautiful spirits. 🙏🏾💜💆🏽‍♀️💁🏽‍♀️💇🏽‍♀️
Side note: @charmbtrippin found these sunglasses at @bkflea and I bought them on sight lol.

50 degree weather in mid-June was weird - Especially since it was 20 degrees warmer right before we got there. 😂 After a day or two, we were no longer concerned with the cold, as we were swept up in Scotland’s folklore, nature (SO MANY medicinal plants!), architecture, and preservation of sites where pre-Christian spiritual practices took place.💫 Many thanks to @chocolateismedicine for showing us around her gorgeous homeland and awakening our our inner storyteller, and to @sacredwarrior7, for yet another amazing retreat filled with learning, healing, and relaxation. More photos to come. 🙏🏾💜

Got a newfound appreciation for the hot tub/cold pool combo! Opened my bronchitis-exhausted lungs right up by the 3rd round. Also, the dome which housed the hot tub? 🔥🔥🔥

Seeking out ancient cairns in the highlands overlooking Loch Awe. Nothing but magic. ✨

Still searching for the bright spots through some unexpected challenges. ☀️ Thank you to my old friends who have been holding space and offering support (love you so much), and to my new friends for being right on time, and reminding me of the power of human connection. 🙏🏾💜

I have to admit, my journey in self-taught film photography began with some luck, and a bit of immediate gratification. Then it became a path toward self-judgement, and a desire for perfection. It has since transformed into a lesson in trusting my instincts, becoming more present in moments of stillness, practicing MORE patience 🙄, and the unearthing of my attachment to specific outcomes. Though I’ve done lots of work on separating ambition from expectation in order to allow room for the unexpected, this aspect of self will reappear until it is fully acknowledged and evolved, as my (subliminally & overtly guided) mind has yet to outdo the amazingness bestowed by the universe. This photo would not have been remarkable to me a few years ago when I received the camera. Today it illustrates a tiny bit of growth in technique, but more importantly, growth in perception.💫🙏🏾💜

I honestly have no idea where I’d be without her strength, love and support. I’m grateful to have grown into adulthood with my mom in my life, with the ability to call her on any day, at any time. We’ve had some years where we didn’t see eye to eye, but her love has always been unconditional and unwavering. My mom has THE biggest heart, so if you’ve ever been loved/cared for/protected by me, you have her to thank. Thank you mom for my snarky wit, inquisitive nature, technical aptitude, fearlessness, and love for humanity. Sorry about the c-section, the many trips to the hospital, my constant need for adventure/thrills, and any future tattoos. 💐💜🇯🇲

Who actually needs arms this long? (not me)
Uses:
1. Reaching top shelf items for short people in supermarkets
2. Group photos with my short friends (basically most of my friends)
