I was long overdue for an adventure with @jessica_s_pappu, but going on @jarvisthegemini’s first hike made up for the fact that we were supposed to be in Colorado this weekend. 😍

I was long overdue for...

The real winner of quarantine... @jarvisthegemini. He’s been getting all the love and affection from us, I think he’s over it. 
It’s great having a dog right now. He keeps me company while @sammen89 has to work from home, instead of my extroverted self getting lonely. How are you guys doing?

#TBT. Any other extroverts going stir-crazy?

Back from when I was allowed to go outside. This was last month actually. I was hiking a lot as I prepare to (hopefully) make it up a 14er in CO with my outdoorsy other-Jessica @jessica_s_pappu. I was doing well for about 75% of this hike but that last stretch back took a lot out of me. 
Fun fact, for being from Texas I actually DON’T hate the cold. Cold + wind is a different story though.

Back from when I was...

I work in one of the industries heavily affected by the virus. For the first time in at least a year I had a job I loved going to, a company I believed in, and an industry that I’ve always wanted to work in. I loved my team and I felt like I belonged. Now, I’m furloughed, stuck at home until who knows when. I know it’s only temporary but it still sucks. This pause has forced me to do something I hate doing, to slow down. I hope you and yours are staying healthy and taking this time to focus on the important things: each other. Stay strong.

I work in one of...

Slowly working my way back to that “influencer” life. 🥴

Fun fact, I always HATED being called that. It often gets used synonymously with people that are shallow or are just self-centered, only caring about how things looked. I’ve been there. I’ve been where I planned on what to do based on “how it looks.” I’ve been depressed when my posts didn’t do as well as I thought they should. I spent money on outfits that I’d wear once, or plan outfits to wear in public based on what I’d be posting. I took it personal when I saw my follower count decrease. Eventually I’d had enough of my mental health tied to social media. I cleaned up 15000 “ghost” followers, people that followed me for giveaways or other reasons and didn’t ever actually care about my content, leaving people that I thought actually cared (and still lost about 1k). I’m definitely still learning the balance, and I often just lean towards not posting anything, instead of posting to have a post for the day or keep my content on your feeds. If you notice long gaps between my posts, that’s what’s going on. Quality//Quantity ☺️

Slowly working my way back...

Apparently between me, KP, and Dončić, only one of us will be showing up to the Mavs//Hawks game 😂 (swipe right) #MFFL

Apparently between me, KP, and...

Don’t let the shoes fool you, I’m still 5’1(ish)”

Anthropologie Hand Painted Globe DIY

Hello all!

I made this Anthropologie inspired hand painted constellation globe for my atelier, after seeing the one in an Anthro store and falling in love. But alas, it was $70! I’m all for splurging on pieces but I knew immediately I could recreate it. Let’s see how it turned out!

It’s actually a lot easier than it looks. You’ll need:

 

I took the globe and mixed some matte black with navy, to give it less of a sheen. I painted 3 thin layers to make sure the original globe was covered. Once dry, I took a chip brush and with some medium blue and navy, added some dimension to the black globe.

I wanted to make sure everything was dry, so I waited 4 hours. I had my cousin free hand the text with a pencil, I drew out the constellations, and I went over it with a gold paint pen. It wasn’t shiny enough for me so I took a really thin paintbrush and went over the lettering and star points with liquid gold foil. It was just what it needed.
