Old me: Have to get all my photos edited the day after I return from vacation in an anxiety ridden state so I have something to post to IG. Takes hours of my life to make sure I post the perfect shot. Throws a fit if it doesn’t get any likes. Bothers my staff about it. 🤣
New me: Whatevs I liked this photo of this cute store in Notting Hill I just found on my phone. The end. 💖
Just imagine Haendel’s most beautiful opera playing on the background twinkling candles all around and your friends to share dinner with....⠀

🌺 Apollonia, Sifnos 🌺
Prepare yourselves for some island spam my friends 😂
I visited Sifnos recently for a christening and as a good blogger/instagrammer I found some time between chilling and socializing to check out the island as well.
If you have visited Sifnos let me know if you liked it! If not stay for the “ride”.
Πρόσφατα επισκέφτηκα τη Σιφνο για μια βάφτιση κ φυσικά βρήκα χρόνο για να εξερευνήσω το νησί και να βγάλω φωτογραφίες.
Την έχετε επισκεφτεί? #aspectsofsifnos

To get a flavour of vintage Calcutta, a walk through the city's North is a must. Awash with boisterous bazaars and crumbling mansions that date to the city's colonial heydays, the area offers evocative glimpses of a storied past, and juxtaposes them with a langourous present.

Ch2. Due North: Have You Seen The Mountaintop?
A couple weeks ago on flight & while being stuck in a connecting flight gone wrong in Ethiopia, I had a "come to Jesus" meeting w/myself about mortality, impact & what EYE actually value.
I thought about how I've tried to identify with the "I care too much" empathy squad. Constantly playing martyr to a so called careless world when I am the one who lacked boundaries #accountability
I thought about the constant power trip scenarios I find myself in, where I feel I'm shining too bright, stepping on others' toes or falling back to hard. Not embracing that I can NEVER outwork or underachieve someone's opinion of me. #groundhogday
I considered the following:
If I knew tomorrow was my last day in this life, what would flash before my eyes? What would I value? What impact or legacy would I hope to leave behind? What gifts would I want to ensure was invested properly?
Took a hard look in the mirror & embraced my personal Groundhog Day. Doing the same thing, being the same way in the same type of setting worldwide and expecting different results= cyclical insanity. So what did/do I do to break the cycle?
I meditate, reflect & align w/in.
I continue to water my growth mindset & release the fixed mindset & toxicity we ALL are capable of. I stay in the lane I have been blessed with.
I stop seeking the validation & understanding alot of us women of color try to achieve at work, home & beyond.
[Pic2 lists my values]
When I leave this life, I want to ensure I LIVED this life & that I did it for ME.
Poured into & healed myself, utilized & faithfully applied gifts in me towards me for everyone to see. Not so they can be me but so I show folks the freedom to get in tune with their personal design & be who they have always been.
My Juneteenth isn't just about my ancestors, my celestial cohort, my peoples, my tribe, Texas and so on. It's about the personal freedom I aspire to achieve through self-discipline, self-accountability, my personal energy budget & staying true to what I truly value (full blog in BIO)

Exploring slightly sketchy, but oh-so-fun, alleyways in Valparaiso, Chile. ❤️😍🌈 #travellovechile#valparaiso#chile ....
**full disclosure: I would not recommend walking around alone or with full camera gear at night. And during the day, keep your gear away when not using it. Better safe than sorry! Hugs, kisses, & airplane tickets, Kristi ✨💫🌙
There are places which make me feel like I am really back home. From the people cooking in the kitchen to the flavors presented on my plate, all my scenes and feelings are nourished. I have been going to @lecambodge for more than 7 years and this place will always remain one of the most particular and noteworthy Asian food experiences in Paris. I was so happy to meet the family behind Le Cambodge and make a little video. If you would like to know more about this place, the link is in my bio 🇰🇭 🥢🥬🥥 #LittleLifeTable#FoodAndTravel
