We went to gorgeous Syracuse yesterday, as well as the idyllic island of Ortigia. The land of Archimedes was simply gorgeous, and I can't wait to share this vlog with you guys! 😍♥️ PS, I went ahead and downloaded IGTV based on the announcement that Instagram will be experimenting with long form vertical video! Nothing like a real YouTube competitor to spice things up. 😏 Thinking about maybe making some creative short travel videos to share on there, maybe? Would anybody want mini vlogs here on Instagram, or prefer to keep them on YouTube? Let me know what you think! ♥️
7 years with my best friend 😚👫 yet another year of being disappointed that he didn’t get me a puppy 😔
A corner made for daydreaming 💭
Why worry when you know they have their own time and clock and you have your own? 🧚🏻♀️
Volcanic beach treasures 🕵🏽♀️ (Also, I never knew how fast I could run until there was 100 ft of scalding hot volcanic sand separating my beach chair from the ocean 🔥👣🔥)
I’ve been daydreaming about Irish countrysides today. We walked past dozens of farms to get here, and even watched a few collies herd sheep. It felt like it was straight out of a dream. What’s the most surreal place you’ve visited?
Exploring the beaches in Sydney 🏄🏽♂️
No longer will I invest my trust in people who can’t be dependable.
If you say you’re going to do something, do it.
If you can’t do what you say, then don’t say you’ll do it.
Dove deodorant told me they would be invisible solid.
So there I was in Paris, trying to live my best life and I couldn’t even dance freely without my deodorant stealing the spotlight.
I can already hear my dad now, “Nice picture Janelle, but you have mini cotton balls under your arms.”
Y’all, I’m just tired of this!
Then on Saturday, I tried wearing an all natural-organic deodorant to church. That....was.....a travesty. Not only was it a mistake but it was the most disappointing day of the year because I felt self conscious.
People would try to shake my hand, and my arms would stay glued to my ribcage, leaving only my fingers free enough to move and “shake” their hand.
I couldn’t raise my arms in adoration and praise, because I was forced beyond my will to keep my arms down...in fear that my sins would be found out.
So I’m frustrated and I won’t keep silent.
I must speak up because my options are unacceptable. Either I have a deodorant that works but looks like powdered donut crumbs under my arms or the deodorant goes on clear but does not hold back the tides.
So I’m speaking up.
I need and must find a deodorant I can depend on-through thick and through thin, at home or abroad.
Woke up to the sound of birds chirping and knew the sun was out!!! We rolled out of bed and headed to the beach to enjoy what was left of the sunrise on our first sunny day in Thailand ✨
How do you feel after swimming with whale sharks? 😬 a little bit of 😅 and a lot of 😍🐳🦈
Hellooooo people of Instagram! How's your day going? This picture makes it look like I'm currently having the time of my life hanging out on beautiful white rooftops in Croatia, but in reality I've been stuck at home all day, sorting through boxes and trying to decide which of my myriad of books to keep and which to send to new homes 📚
It's difficult, you see, because I'm faced with questions like...how many copies of Shakespeare's works are too many? Does a girl really need 13 different Norton Anthologies?? Is it possible to have too much poetry by the Brownings??? So as you can see, I'm having a bit of trouble narrowing down which book friends get to stay and which ones to send away 😉
So oblige me and distract me for a bit...are you off to anywhere fun this summer? What's your favorite thing you have planned in the next couple of months?? I want to hear all about your upcoming adventures!
Can you guess what waterfall this is? 💦
Wandering aimlessly and taking in the beauty of your surroundings is the best way to explore a new city.
Don’t know why there are so many people in my courtyard... .
An immense city with immense history and immense beauty: Istanbul 💖🕌
