I'm excited to say I'm all caught up with Sailormoon Crystal! I know there's a lot of haters out there when it comes to this phenomenal anime reboot but I truly love the manga/illustration style in this new version. The storyline is darker and much richer than the "90s U.S. government censored please protect the children from sexuality and real life" version we had as kids. If you haven't watched it yet, get to it!
I took these pics a while back on my fave rooftop in my area. It's peaceful, overlooks the water and is really relaxing. I've been inspired by Lisa Frank lately and it's been showing a lot in my photography, hence the pastel alien baby sherbet vibes.

So I don't think I've ever, EVER posted about the shows I watch but Lord help me, I just spent the last half hour laughing hysterically at my new favorite episode of Regular Show. My stomach hurts so much from laughing it's soooooooo funny! I'm dying.
They came out with a special called, Brilliant Century Duck Crisis Special, and I shit you not, it is magically hilarious.
Watch it and thank me later!
Here's a list of some films full of honking city streets, sweaty white tees with beer stains on them, cherry popsicles dripping down your arm and bright blue skies with lively parks underneath filled with people without a care.
It's the films that take you there, back to a careless free loving teen dream summer daze.
Lost and Delirious
Beasts of the Southern Wild
Jeune et Jolie
Dazed and Confused
Wet Hot American Summer
I found all these online, just a quick google search away. Enjoy one or spend the day/night watching them all ;)

Overcast days are always great for shooting. The clouds act as a natural light diffuser and you get even perfect light everywhere. As you can see I'm back at one of my favorite spots and wearing some new jelly sandals I picked up.
I've been doing a lot of shopping at discount sites I've found, most of them are in China. They sell clothes for like $3 a top and I just end up buying way more than I need because it's so inexpensive...and because shopping is an addiction I have.
I've been thinking about New York lately. I can't wait to head back. I had a difficult talk with my Mom about going there for the Summer because she thinks I'll never come back. The truth is I'm not sure where I'll end and I told her I'm just looking for a creative job that's the right fit so wherever that is that's where I'll be.
I need to get better at my communication skills. I love my Mom so much but I'm really bad at calling her regularly and things and she gets so worried. I have a friend who is so close to her Mom, they are like best friends. I think their relationship is so awesome and I'd like to work towards something like that with my own Mom. Sometimes she can just get so judgmental that it makes me not wanna say anything. Maybe I can tell her things and just hear her opinion but not have to take it to heart so much....which will be a struggle.
If you've got any advice I'd love to hear it. If you're shy about posting comments then snapchat me a message -> AnaisLuvsU or send me an anonymous ask on my Tumblr.
