pretty pixels and wild something

(Disclaimer though it's really not a disclaimer but really more of a important statement I need to make: Most all of my more recent posts have been pretty short and have the appearance that they've been thrown together (that's just what I think!) and I know this is because of school and life and distractions and whatnot, so though these posts are typically short, they still are important to me and it's still an important factor to me to share with you guys what inspires me! I plan to make more outfit posts and art in the very near future so stay tuned:) Okay, I just felt the need to say that! Disclaimer over!)

 Hey guys! Lately I've been pretty obsessed with the pretty images that depict precious moments photographed by Olivia Bee. Every photo she takes is breathtaking and inspiring and makes you want to pick up your own camera--even if it's to capture the most random moments or scenes. It doesn't matter where or when you are or how important or mundane the moment is. If you get that itch to take a photo, I've learned to just do it <3

1. Olivia Bee photography

Summer's over, but this almost makes me wish it wasn't fall. Almost

There are several reasons why I love this photo. First of all, I love a guy with nail polish. Secondly, you can honestly sense what this person could be feeling based off of body language alone. You don't know if they're cold, if they're anxious, if they're about to cry. They could be rubbing their arm from the bee that just stung them and they could be holding their arm out of comfort, glad to be in a safe place again. You don't know these things, but you do know that this person is feeling something. Maybe it's something bad, or maybe it's something wild..

2. My own pixelated stills

I don't normally eat salad with glitter just to clarify. But when I'm doing projects and glitter needs to be dumped somewhere and a leftover salad bowl is availabe...why not?

I was parked in the taking of this photo.

Thank you Yves St. Laurent

And yall are the cutest

3. Wild Nothing, though they truly are something

Wild Nothing is primarily Jack Tatum aka the producer of the dreamiest tracks around. He hails from the South and is a part of the kool kid gang of Captured Tracks. Be careful when you listen to his music, as it will send you on a trip--quite possibly one of the best and cheapest of your life. My favorite album of Wild Nothing's is undoubtedly Gemini because I'm a gemini holla of this song right here: 

I mean with a title as rad as "Vultures Like Lovers" how could it ever steer you wrong? And one youtube commenter said something purely perfect about this song that I always come back to and, it leaves me with some drowsy, mystic vibe of hopefulness, loss, and discovery.

"It's kinda like setting off on a journey at 4am and missing everything you love as soon as you step out of the door. Everything goes, but you realize some other strange truth."- Youtuber RobbieMissile

and the title track "Gemini":

This is the song I'd listen to if I were in a field of flowers like the beautiful photo in the beginning of this post <3


  1. Lovely post! Olivia Bee is amazing, I'm so happy I got to see her exhibition in Madrid some weeks ago! xx

    1. Thanks! Very jealous of you right now. Madrid AND Olivia Bee?? Amazing <3

  2. Glitter in salad is the best ;)
    I also love that photo of the dirty window with the heart in it; scrolling down I thought it was just a normal everyday shot but the heart makes it beautiful :)

  3. Your stills are so beautiful - especially the glitter in the salad. I don't know why but glitter makes everything so much more romantic. And I totally get you on trying to capture everyday moments. There are all the singular, really pretty moments and it's great to to capture them because they're so relatable and familiar and extra beautiful when you share them.

    1. Thanks so much! x This is such a lovely comment. You're spot on about the romantic aspects of glitter. Often I think it's seen as many tacky element-- in some unfortunate cases it can have that effect--but more often than not, it just makes things more magical <3
