You GUYS. •
Hey guys. •
Do you ever think about the language you use? Does it ever bother you to be referred to as a guy so frequently? •
Once you start noticing the idiocyncricies of operating under the patriarchy, you can’t unsee it. I’m guilty of it too, for years. And every once in a while I slip up. •
If you’re like me, it really bothers you. •
Gender norms are EVERYWHERE. Today, I challenge you to use gender neutral terminology, because lets face it, its the future. •
Gender norms are outdated at best, so lets start being more respectful of each other. Ask for preferred pronouns when meeting a human for the first time. Use gender neutral words like humans, everyone, friends etc.• Cheers ✌🏻 stepped off my soap box now
Wedding memories ✨
Super grateful that this campaign aligned when it did, as we were long overdue to make a wedding photo album, and we received it the week of our anniversary. Perfect timing! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I loved how easy it was, with Apple photos integration everything was super simple to put all 181 photos together. They have plenty of templates, fonts and customization options to choose from. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’ve been putting it off like I did, try out @motifphotos! .

Pride with purpose 🏳️🌈 I’m not typically one for brightly colored socks, but when it’s a company I can stand behind, AND they’re rainbow I’ll make an exception •
@solmatesocks is an eco friendly, sustainable sock and accessories brand, headquartered here in Portland. •
Started 20 years ago in Vermont, by a woman who enjoyed hand knitting mismatched socks for her friends. Today the socks, hats, scarves and other accessories are constructed from preconsumer t shirt scraps at their mill in North Carolina, that are respun into their own yarns. How cool is that? •
Best of all, 10% of every purchase of the fifth element socks goes to the @hrcpdx!
Happy summer solstice anniversary to @aetherbeautyco! ✨
Women founded, 100% sustainable, ethically sourced, organic, vegan, cruelty free and fair trade beauty company.• I have learned so much about sustainable packaging, and where our beauty ingredients actually come from through their platform. Also want to mention this is not sponsored, simply a huge supporter following their work and the brand for a while now. I finally purchased this palette a few months ago in the Sephora sale, and it’s completely replaced my other day wear eyeshadow palettes. It’s incredible to finally find a quality beauty brand that checks all the boxes. •
And best of all, in celebration of hitting the 1 year mark, Aether beauty is having a site wide 30% off sale now through the 27th with code SUMMERLOVE! •
I can tell you from experience, they never do this, so go support this incredible brand!
Category is: live. work. POSE! •
Anyone else @poseonfx superfans out there? •
Real talk I cry like a baby every single episode. It’s just so good! Heartbreaking, but the story of the ballroom culture in the predominately black drag queen community in NYC is fascinating. • I’m learning so much about an area of our history I had no awareness of. The aids epidemic, how vogueing made it to the mainstream, so many topics covered. Billy Porter is phenomenal. The entire cast for that matter. And the documentation of the tokenizing of queen culture, it’s maddening but so interesting to see how far back it started. •
Anyway, highly recommend it to anyone looking for a little lgbtq history in their lives. And that should be all of you. •
I promised rainbows this month, so happy pride y’all 🏳️🌈
Hi there. •
Friendly reminder that there’s always hope, no matter what is going on in your life right now. And no one has it all together, so stop comparing yourself. •
Humans fall into fear based thoughts every day, because survival is our most primal instinct. We no longer have predators to worry about, yet the conditioning is still there. Rewriting your brain to focus on love and abundance instead of fear takes time. So much time. And it isn’t easy, but it’s always worth it. So give yourself some love today. Celebrate the little wins along the way.
I believe in you, I support you. Sending love to you all!
P.S. Enjoy my dirty mirror selfie, because I’m imperfect and that’s real life ✌🏻
Strawberry full moon 🌕
Expansion, vision, ultimate truth •
Step back and look at the big picture, trust your intuition. That gut feeling (particularly sacral authorities) and that intuitive sense of knowing. •
For me, this reading is about connecting with my community of healers, keep with a routine as I continue transitioning into my new career, and get read for the hard work ahead. All of this is no surprise, but I still have moments of weakness, getting caught up in the minutia and fear based thoughts about ‘making it’. Big picture: I’ve already made it, and everything will continue coming my way. Continuing to become more confident in honing my craft and trusting the universe to provide. •

Can fern Friday be a thing? 🌿
Today I’m grateful for the internet. The ability to post on social media looking for humans to hike with, and two hours later, boom! Hiking with new friends. Much needed nature time to reset my soul after two weeks of hard work on the business, that paid off with my certification this week! Equally important to take self care time, to maintain the balance of it all. And lots of ferns, just living my ferngully fantasy. •
What are you up to this weekend? It’s pride weekend in Portland so I’m ready for all the 🌈 love!
