Picture Day

gifted shirt & earrings, skirt from French marché, Franco Sarto shoes, Forever 21 necklace

There's something very stressful about picture day. It might be the photographers who take care of you as if your class was a herd of lost sheep, the lighting making you look deathly ill or maybe it's the sad grey background used for portraits. I never really liked picture day. What I look like that day won't represent me for the entire year. In May, I will have changed...

Il y a quelque chose de très stressant le jours des photos de classes. C'est peut être les photographes qui vous regroupent comme un troupeau de moutons, la lumière qui donne l'air cadavérique ou le fond grisonnant pour les portraits. Je n'ai jamais vraiment aimé la journée des photos. Ce à quoi j'ai l'air ce jour là, ne me ressemble pas forcément pendant toute l'année. En mai, j'aurai changé...

European Encounters

Hey Y'all, 
So for the month of June I spent my time traveling around western Europe with some close friends. We began our journey in Paris where we stayed for a ten days. After that we traveled up to southern Germany and visited the EU and a few cathedrals. We then drove down to Geneva Switzerland and stayed in a hostel on the Geneva Lake. We ended the trip in Provence (southern France) and took a few trips down to the Mediterranean before flying home. 
So here is a small collection of photos from the trip with some advice and stories mixed in. 
*All photos are mine*
I took this in the gardens of the Musée Rodin

Mediterranean bathing :) (the only place I could truly float in water)

The Kiss by Rodin

The Kiss by Michaela :) 

Smiles in Le Louvre

L'arc de Triomphe

We did a ton of sketching and writing while traveling. It is something I strongly recommend when traveling. By sketching a scene you are given the chance to truly see it, a quick photo does not allow the amazement to sink in. Writing is similar in the way that you are given a moment to put your awe on paper. It truly gives perspective to each situation and how amazing it all is. 

Sacre Coeur (Sacred Heart)

Throughout the trip we would head on morning runs or swims. In Paris each morning we'd head out for a run along the Seine and past Notre Dame. In Geneva we'd take morning dips in the lake after conditioning. The Alps were the prime place for yoga and meditation and Southern France ended with runs just like Paris. Feeling the land and seeing sights as you pass is a great new way to experience a place. 

When you travel make sure to become close and happy with those traveling with you. Traveling is the greatest way to expand your mind and soul and sharing that experience with others is wonderful. 

The City Of Lights

My new favorite place in the world: the Swiss Alps

We left the base around 12 and made it to the lodge by five. The hike was long and exhilarating. There was snow within two feet of flowers and cliffs that just seemed to tower. Rocks as old as gods and a sky so big and wide you could not fathom the space. 

The air was crisp and so fresh you felt like you were breathing for the first time. The streams were cold and the water tasted like ambrosia, made only for the gods. The grass beneath bare feet for yoga was a dream mat and the amount of small animals that shared the space you felt as though you were surrounded by the purest forms of life. 

No one else scaled the mountains with us and we stayed at a small lodge that served cheese fondue and bread for dinner and a large delicious breakfast before heading back down the mountain. The night in the small cabin was beautiful. I've never seen stars shine so brightly or so many shooting stars. The moons face was so clear and the silence seemed to echo. On the way down we all ran. Our backpacks strapped tightly to our bodies and our sports bras covered in sweat we ran our way down in an hour. The moment my foot touched the last slope all I wanted to do was turn around and never come down. 

We visited an old colosseum in southern France

The Ochre mines in France

A monastery surrounded by lavender. 

I hope you enjoyed the photos and small snip-its of the best month of my life :) 

Love, Miki

Despite of the cold weather seeping in, I'm trying to wear all of my summer clothes that I haven't wore yet. My friends at school think I'm crazy when they're in jeans and I'm in shorts. I simply need to make up for everything I didn't bring to California. I'm slowly getting there...

Malgré la fraicheur qui s'installe au fur et à mesure, j'essaie de porter tous les vêtements d'été que je n'ai pas encore mis. Mes amies pensent que je suis folle quand j'arrive à l'école en short et elles en jeans. J'ai tout simplement envie de porter tout ce que je n'ai pas pu prendre en Californie. Je me rattrape lentement...

Hello World

My beauteous and wondrous followers I've got a lot of explaining to do. 

For those of you newbies who have begun to follow Emma and my blog this summer you may have not met me yet, so, hi! I'm Miki :) 
For those who've been with us since the beginning and for those who are newer you may have noticed my absence this past summer. And for this absence I apologize and here is a bit of an explanation for my disappearance. 
To kick off the summer I spent a month in France with many of my friends on a trip around France and to Switzerland and we finished the trip on the Mediterranean. When I got back from the trip life which had seemed to disappear for that month quickly caught up with me and swept me off my feet. I spent the summer doing a lot of art and college adventures (I am currently in the process of applying to college since I am a senior in high school). I worked multiple days a week as a waitress and spent a large amount of time at the gym and out in nature. I spent a good amount of time camping and hiking and of course writing. For those of you who don't know I love to write especially about controversial topics in our society. Which brings me to my greatest accomplishment this summer: getting through a high level college course on gender in our current society. I've taken college courses before (last summer and this) to gain extra credits but mainly just to learn! The experience was wonderful and I learned so much and as time moves on I will be sharing my discoveries with you! 
So that is a brief overview of my summer. I sadly didn't see Emma once which is crazy since we technically are attached at the hip. I missed her like crazy and was so glad when she finally got home from her travels and we saw each other. 
Over the next month I'll be filling you in on my summer mixed in with other posts, so it'll be amazing to hear from you and get back to writing for my favorite blog! 

PS- throughout the summer I kept up with our tumblr page and my instagram check 'em out :)
