First of all, hi.

Second of all, I love Instagram. Are we following each other yet?

Recently I’ve discovered a ton of new people who post the most inspiring stuff. I ventured out and started following people I don’t know, who take the most beautiful pictures. Most are about love, some are about peace and living in LA, (even though those two things don’t quite go together), and some are just wacky and unique. I know you’re probably on Instagram too, so I wanted to share with you a few of my favorites, in case you were interested in seeing some new pictures in your feed

I’m also gearing up for an AWESOME giveaway tomorrow! It has to do with liquor. And books. My two favorite things. Except I never do books in moderation.

      Hi there Vivienne, it’s so wonderful to meet you via Disqus! :) And thank you so much for letting me know about this. I have attributed the image to you, and linked both the text link of your name and the image to your website, which I absolutely love by the way! I’ve been reading all about you and I love the idea of taking selfies to reflect the beauty of one’s self. I wrote a blog post about this exact thing once, because I was taking selfies of myself every day to remember to love myself, and the way I looked in that very moment. I’m so glad to have discovered you!
