This year I’ve discovered a wonderful online community that supports tall women and girls. Created by Bree, this online platform shares the love of unique women who are more than just size. On The Tall Society you can find not only fashion but also inspiration, events and amazing articles that promote self-acceptance. For me, being a tall woman, it’s very exciting to be part of such a project that unites women. Because in the end, we are exactly what we should be. No more, no less.

Sometimes, if I have the opportunity, I collaborate with photographers as many ways as possible. Meeting Peter was quite overwhelming due to his experience, professionalism and sensitivity. He expresses his point of view through the lens in a unique way, just like a true artist should be. I feel lucky enough to have met him by coincidence and I cannot recommend his work enough. You can visit his website here.
I get questions about my traveling habits more frequently that I would like to. So I’ve decided to write this post to clarify things (and then to send it to people who ask a lot of questions). First of all: there are beautiful mornings waiting for you in every corner of every place you visit. That being said, there is also amazing people you can meet. It was in this spirit that I got involved with the Couchsurfing community back in 2011. Since then every time I travel with friends, we always choose couchsurfing first before anything else. We love meeting random people and also discover new places through their knowledge of the city. It’s a unique experience and completely changes how you travel. But what happens if there’s no host available or all hostels are expensive?! You can always check Airbnb. Read the reviews beforehand and then book any type of room that you would like. Enjoy a pleasant stay in a local home for a more accessible price. Worth it. That’s basically how …
I love online content that can break barriers between people. “The Secret Life of Muslims” is a documentary web-series directed by Joshua Seftel that shows American Muslims being real about their lives, accomplishments, expectations and values. It shows people being people. It shows that we, together as a society don’t know everything about each other; but that’s ok as long as we are open to listen to others and to get to know their story. Because what the media shows it’s never 100% true. Besides the video below you can check more episodes here.
I’ve met Alex due to a coincidence of events. He’s always there documenting concerts, stand up comedy shows, theatre plays and other sort of entertainment/social gathering. He’s super versatile, practical and most importantly, he makes the subject of his photos feel as natural as possible in front of the camera. It’s something I cannot explain, but I leave below some examples of his work. He’s also a great brainstormer to discuss ideas with. I truly recommend to check his portfolio: https://alexbrandt.photography/ Save
