Hey there! I know this is a little more up close and personal than you’re used to (me too! ), but I just posted a blog with some of my favorite quotes and I feel like I’m sharing a little piece of me. Words have the power to capture our imagination, transport us to other worlds, and spark the flame of inspiration that lies within us all. And the right words, at the right time can resonate so strongly that they feel like they were written just for you. If you have a favorite quote, or some words that really hit you in the feels, I’d absolutely love to hear them in the comments! I’m always looking for new inspiration. To read some of mine, check out the blog! I’m thinking that I’ll continue to update it with new words as they cross my path. ️

@chelseakauai Ohhh can’t wait to read!!💗

@calsnape I’m a sucker for a good quote!

When I was 14 I painted my entire room “creamsicle orange.” There were those that questioned my creative direction - and to be fair, it was a pretty obnoxious color.  But it made me happy every time I walked in! If only I’d known back then that there was a place where the entire world was painted orange. Still all smiles from yesterday’s field trip to see the California Poppies in bloom. Haven’t seen that much orange in a long time! 
-
The bloom was unlike anything I’ve seen, and I hope you get to experience it someday! As always remember to respect the places we play. Stay on trails and hard surfaces, take only photos, read signs. You know the drill! Have fun out there!

@jordentually These flowers are such a pretty colour

@jordanherschel Holy cow! Look at all that!

I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t escape into nature. If there wasn’t a place to drown out all the noise being thrown around. A place so powerful that it can literally blow me away. Lost in the moment, just me, and the roar of falling water. More moments like this please! ️

@rachstewartnz So gorgeous Jess 💙

@jordanherschel Simply stunning!

It can be super overwhelming to think about all the things I should be doing, or could be doing to reduce my impact on the environment. But I think sometimes we underestimate what a big difference we can all make with little everyday changes - like cutting plastic out of our lives where possible. This year I’ve been focusing on taking a reusable water bottle everywhere with me, and it’s kind of cool to think about all the potential garbage we could eliminate from this one simple change!

Reminder!!...Don't miss the opportunity to #CaptureTheChange with me for a chance to win one of two paid 3-year leases on a Tesla Model S.

@marinacomes @itsafiajahin 👏👏🤗🤗

@jordanherschel That light is stunning!

There’s something crazy inspiring about being surrounded by people who are taking that first step toward following their passion. I’ve always believed that we are, to some degree, who we surround ourselves with, and the past few days in Bali have reinforced that belief. As someone that can be quite closed off, listening to everyone’s stories, watching them push outside their comfort zones, and share their vulnerabilities, has filled me with a new sense of gratitude for all the people that have let me into their lives.  The beautiful humans that have shared their stories with me, and added to mine. As we move through life we will constantly meet new individuals, and each one will have something unique to offer if we are open to learning. All we have to do is listen. @instituteofcode

Iceland is a stunning country, and I don’t think anyone visits without feeling an overwhelming sense of awe at one point or another. But landscapes aren't the only inspiring thing in Iceland - it also uses a higher proportion of renewable energy than most countries in the world! It’s kind of wild to think that the same geothermal energy that has helped shape the iconic landscapes we all love to photograph, also literally powers the country! - It’s positive environmental movements like this, that @BankOfTheWest’s #CaptureTheChange photography competition is all about. And I'm sure like me, as humans that love the outdoors, it's the type of initiative that you get excited about too!

@rachstewartnz Amazing shot Jess 😍

@carmenhuter Is it open worldwide darling? Great initiative

We weren't sure if we were in the right place when we pulled up. There were no other cars, no signs, nothing - just a tiny house on a dirt road with a  bunch of kids playing outside. Eventually some money was exchanged and we were led into the back yard. I still wasn't sure we were in the right place. It wasn't until I was standing at the edge of a pitch black hole in the ground that I knew we had found the cenote we were looking for. That, or we had stumbled across some sort of vortex to another dimension. Either way, I was going down. You can see the ladder in this photo - not actually a ladder, but pieces of rusted out track that had been cobbled together by suspect welding and chintzy wires. Worth every sketchy step though! #Mexico #Cenote

So excited to be headed to Bali for the first time in a few days!! I’ll be mentoring a bunch of awesome people with the @instituteofcode, and I can’t wait to meet everyone that’s coming. If you couldn’t make it out this time around, no worries! The course has been so popular that two more dates have been added in July and November!! Whether you want to be a content creator, blogger or social media manager, the Bali retreat is an amazing opportunity to learn with experts in the social media field in an environment where all your needs are taken care of so that you can just focus on one thing - learning skills that will help you achieve your goals! If you’ve got any questions I’ve put up a story with more details, or you can shoot @instituteofcode a DM.

Swinging into one crazy blue water filled cave after another this week! We are just getting started, but I already feel like a broken record. I swear, every time we pull up to a new cenote I'm like, I've never seen water this clear!!”  #bluewater #Mexico #cenote
