How to take aesthetic photos with INSTAX MINI!

What is up, weird, wild, and wonderful witches?!?

This weekend I have been felt extremely compelled to encourage everyone to CREATE! Friends, I truly believe that connecting with your creativity is key to connecting with your magic! When you do something creative, you remind yourself that you are a creative force in your life and your world!

There are countless ways to do this, but today I want to share with you my favorite chill and fun summer art project: taking instant photos! So come with me to the beach and I’ll show you how to take aesthetic photos with the Instax Mini!

pink sunset aesthetic

A pink sunset aesthetic moment to escape into? Yes please!

It’s rewarding to keep your eyes out for little everyday moments of magic.

Sometimes if you’re lucky, you’ll catch a BIG moment of magic. This perfectly pink sunset aesthetic moment was just that!

I want to share this ethereal pink sunset with you to remind you that we live in a world where AMAZING things can happen.

It is important to remind the world it is beautiful. (Sadly, sometimes we forget.) Please allow these photos to temporarily whisk you away for a blissful bask in beauty!

You know you’re a witch when…

Did anyone else find themselves deep in feelings this weekend? I am forever committed to a positive attitude, yet I couldn’t help but notice the weight of our stark world reality creeping in. I decided to go for a (socially distanced) walk and when I returned, something magical happened! You know you’re a witch when…

…the local cats come to hang out right outside your window! First I noticed one adorable little guy chilling in my backyard. Soon after, a friend joined him! They hung out with me for quite a while as I repeatedly cooed compliments on their cuteness through my window.

As dark as the world can be, it is still full of magical moments! Keep your eyes open for small signs. Keep your eyes open for blessings, and you will find them!

fairy ring

I spy a fairy ring!

Ever since I adopted this little cactus, magical things have been happening in my backyard. Flowers and plants seem to love to sprout around it! After it became embraced by enthusiastic nasturtiums, I scooted it over, and the most magical little fairy ring soon followed.

Have you seen a fairy ring? This phenomenon refers to any natural growth in a ring-like pattern – circles of mushrooms, flowers, even trees can sprout up! Legend has it these rings bring luck, but don’t mess with them or you’ll potentially get the opposite!

I think it is the sweetest thing that my cactus has made flower friends! One upside of being home is I notice every little update in plant activity here. Stay tuned for a garden tour soon!
