Today is my 300th post for you! for whatever reason this is a huge deal to me. as creators, we all take such pride in making sure each photo we put out is exactly how we would like it to be. behind every image there is so much work that goes into it and i am so happy that to announce this milestone with you and i cannot wait to create hundreds more! 🌸
.
.
it may seem like a small achievement because some bloggers literally have thousands of posted photos but to me it’s a big deal :)

Shine bright like a diamond β™’ lately i have been thinking about my existence here on @instagram. i started my page initially to share my travels as well as my passion for photography. the two go hand in hand and i’m so thankful that social media gave me an outlet to showcase it all with you. i didn’t initially think that i would be in all the photos or that it would turn into the brand but i am so proud of how it and how i have evolved. some of you may never guess it but i am actually quite camera shy and don’t always feel like being front and center in my photos. can anyone else relate?
.
.
when i started the essentialist page i didn’t even tell me closest friends and family and just went for it on my own not sure what people may think. now two years later i can’t wait to share my work with the people close around me and sharing my work as a creator/influencer/blogger with you! there is a stigmatism sometimes surrounding social media but i think that if you are true to yourself, if it is healthy for you, if it motivates and inspires you and if it brings you happiness than only focus on releasing positive energy and just do you β™’

I have been on the road on and off since hawaii which was in april! this is the first time i have traveled so much in just 2 months and i have seen and experienced so many amazing moments. i hope you all have been following along and enjoyed what you’ve seen. i also am very happy to be home in my apartment and will be planning away my trip to europe that i am headed for in just a couple weeks.
.
.
we’ve decided to get a @airbnb in nice, france as my base and will be exploring all the surrounding area! in the meantime i will be doing plenty of day trips and getaways in the new england area. hope you are well and i can’t wait to share with you all the pictures i have taken along the way as well as many exciting campaigns i’ve been working on ☺️

One of my favorite things to do as you all know is getting up early in the morning while the rest of the city sleeps so i have moments like this to myself. except this time at sunrise i had the warm company of the locals joining me at the senso-ji temple. some were praying, some were going on a morning stroll, everyone was so sweet and welcoming. it was the perfect introduction to the japanese culture. everything about this morning was zen, beautiful and perfect✨ @instasize.official

That one time i came to the bahamas and swam with the largest pigs i had ever seen! beware some of them can be feisty. since i started this page i have been able to check off a couple places off my bucket list but there is still so much more world to see and i continue to add more to it. i will always love the beaches of the bahamas, but i also would love to discover some more less-traveled destinations. let me know if you have any recommendations :)

tomorrow i am headed to the east coast of canada to new brunswick! stay tuned to see what i get up to with @destinationnb ✨

I believe traveling makes you grow as a person and allows you to learn so much about yourself. it’s one of the things i am most grateful for that it’s taught me who i am as a person and who i want to aspire to become. perfection isn’t a reality in my eyes but i strive everyday to be a better version of myself and to always stay positive. it is something that has been on my mind a lot lately especially since i have been traveling a ton and i want to share it with you ☺️
