Miami is really starting to feel like Summer, it's getting too hot! I know in NY it's still snowing and I sorta wish we could get a little of that here. I'm so tired of this eternal Summer, believe it or not lol I was sorta sweating in this cardigan.

Anyhoo, I finished Miami Ad School but still have classes at FIU so I haven't officially graduated, but will soon in May. Hopefully, I can get a paid internship or job somewhere in NY because that's where I wanna be :)

Sometimes you need a secret spot to let it all go. A place that's just your own where you can tune out the rest of the world and focus on the sound of the waves and the wind roaring past your ears. These are the places where I feel free to sit and think.

I don't know about you but I know there are times I don't treat myself right. I can be really hard on myself to the point where it becomes emotionally abusive. It's unhealthy and self-loathing never gets you anywhere but it's also hard to shake. I think it stems from wanting to being humble, modest and self-deprecating but then it always goes too far. I'm not sure why I'm telling you all this but if it helps others feel like they're not the only ones doing this then maybe it'll do some good.

I just stood up to myself today and said I don't deserve these emotional beatings. I deserve to be healthy and happy and free from this toxic behavior. Nobody is perfect and nobody has it all figured out so give yourself a break. I'm going to try and do one thing a day that makes me smile, just little things to brighten my day, because I deserve it.


Also listening to James Blake as I write this

La Nouvelle Vague


Lately I've been watching a lot of french films from the 50s + 60s and drawing all sorts of inspiration from them. I recently watched Breathless and now I'm on Jules and Jim.

They all have story plots centered around political and social issues of their time so you get a good dose of history through rich story telling and layered characters. They also have a fun visual style and really experiment with their cinematography.

Aside from every film being beyond hip, chic and cool their style is to die for. I really get inspired by how the guys and the girls dress in these films. Total gamines and classic looks for daysss

Here's a link with some of the movies if you wanna check them out. I definitely recommend it.

Pal Gals // Ep 1



So I started this fun thing with my friend James. We made a show about our lives. Here's the first episode!

p.s. I know it's rough in a lot of places, yes, we are aware, but it's a start so we're gonna keep it going lol

SYNOPSIS

ANAIS and JAMES enjoy a $3 lunch at Outback Steakhouse when they come across some enlightening advice, Outback's "No Rules, Just Right" tagline. The pair debate about the meaning behind the words and how they can apply it to their broke girl lifestyle. Talk about finding actual employment falls through and leads into conversation about an ongoing project, Dog Stars, that happens to catch the eye of a Creative Executive at a NY Ad Agency.
