💃🏻 Switching it up a little bit with this super fun studio shoot at @socialsetapp with @kollectin I did when I still had blonde hair. It was so fun working with an amazing group of creative minds 💗💗💪🏼💪🏼. .

One of my biggest goals in life is to explore cultures most foreign to my own. The more we can understand about other cultures, the closer we can come to empathizing with the world as a whole, which coincides with my everlasting strive for total objectivity. I didn’t have much exposure to the Peruvian culture at all prior to my visit. After staying with Maria and Mario, the Misminay Tribe family host at @qhispikay.glamping , I absolutely fell in love!
.
.
This beautiful tribe has inhabited the Sacred Valley for centuries. To this day, roughly 150-300 live in the hills, living in the traditional ways that have been passed down from their ancestors. Mario, a professional Chef, showed us how to cook traditional Peruvian meals straight from his kitchen while Maria showcased her intricate, gorgeous, handmade textiles. Isaías, the co-host, guided us on a hike to the top of the hill where we could see Moray and the Sacred Valley from a birds-eye perspective. This entire Glamping experience is completely self-sustainable and is truly the best way to experience what Peruvian culture has to offer. Thank you so much Isaías, Mario, and Maria for the unforgettable stay! 😊⛰🏕

🥐🥚🍳They say the most important meal of the day is breakfast, and they sure don’t mess around at @novotellima when it comes to starting your day right. I still have dreams of the delicious buffet that’s included with your stay at their chic city hotel. It was the perfect way to start a fun filled day swimming with sea lion and exploring Lima. Also, they had mini Hawaiian pizza🍕 for breakfast...truly heaven! .

One of the best parts about traveling the world is fully immersing yourself into the culture and, of course, food! We had the opportunity to stay at the historic train hotel @elalbergue and enjoy a delicious traditional pachamanca lunch provided by their completely sustainable organic farm. The meal was harvested directly from the farm and cooked in an “earth oven” under scorching hot rocks at 9,160 ft elevation. If you’re planning on visiting Machu Picchu, this is the perfect accommodation to stay at for a few nights to acclimate to the altitude and to enjoy the beautiful scenery with a scrumptious meal.

For those of you who have known me for a while, you’ll know that I have had an undying obsession for llamas since the 7th grade. In my high school year book, I was coined as “the girl who drew llamas on her Spanish tests for good luck.” I remember in my history class we covered a section about Machu Picchu and I though, “Wow that place is amazing! I’ll probably never be able to go there.” Now, I truly got to live my dream and it was even better than I could ever have imagined! Thank you so much @inkayniperutours for making it all happen! 😍❤️❤️❤️

I know this doesn’t really match my Instagram feed, but I can’t help but post this experience. In Lima, we had the once in a lifetime opportunity to swim with wild sea lions. These stunning creatures have no natural predators at the isolated Palomino Island and are extremely friendly and playful with humans. As soon as we jumped in the water, the adorable sea lions swam right up to greet us, swimming through our legs and sniffing our hands and feet. They were just as curious as we were of them, and it was one of the most interactive and exciting experiences I’ve ever had in the ocean. .

If you ever plan on visiting Peru, this tour is an absolute MUST! Check out @america.viajes and book your trip. .

We had such an incredible time in Lima I totally didn’t get a chance to edit any photos to share. Until then, here is a photo of the Homecoming series I wrote about for @prettylittlething on #nylonpink ❤️. Check out the article on nylonpink.tv. .
In a cab on our wait to the airport heading to Cusco right now! Llamas so so soon! 🐐🐪🐑💗💗💗

🤘🏼 Back in black 🖤. I had a whole lot of fun being blonde. For 4 years, I had natural black hair but decided I needed a drastic change after working for a tech start up in Korea and San Francisco for 8 months. Though it certainly was a party, I feel like my old self again with my dark hair...and a bit more metuhl 😈. Thank you @mynameismk for the amazing transformation! .
If you could color your hair any color, what would you pick?

So excited to announce that I will be traveling to Peru this Friday with #nylonpink and @kailayu 😁. I've been DYING to visit this gorgeous country. As many of you know, llamas are by far my favorite animal (since I was in 7th grade). Peru is the land of the llama and alpaca🐪, so be prepared to see many selfies and photos with my newfound friends!
.
Does anybody have any recommendations for Peru? It's my first time and would love to know the low down on whats happening in Cusco and Lima!

Happy Labor Day! 💪🏼
.
Finally, I officially have moved into my new residence. Even though it's just a mile away from where I lived before, there's quite a noticeable contrast.
.
It certainly was a life lesson living one block away from Skid Row for three years. Drug deals, arrests, public lewd activity, violence, and robberies all poppin' right outside of my window built a bit of character into me. Despite the negatives, there were also beautiful moments of true altruism, pure kindness, and an unbreakable communal strength. .
.
In the end, I've learned 1) always be genuinely kind and empathetic since you never know what someone is going through  2) our “first world problems” REALLY aren’t a big deal. 💗
