my name is vada.

I am 25 years old, I have a Husky named Clover, I have an almost unhealthy obsession with house plants. I watch The Office too much and I am absolutely in love with Beauty. A long time ago I asked a friend of mine what his one true love was, and he said: Beauty. I was expecting perhaps a person, or a food, or something along those lines— It never occurred to me that one could actually be in love with beauty itself. But, alas, here I am in full agreement with him. Beauty is my one true love, and it always has been. I have always been attracted to beautiful people, beautiful scents, beautiful fabrics, beautifully written books and poems, beautifully made films etc… Beauty seems to be the one thing that is truly limitless. My love for beauty expresses itself through the lens of my camera, makeup brushes, my friendships, my hardships… through blank canvasses, and my obsession with art. I am incredibly passionate about helping others find beauty in themselves, through photography and cosmetics, as well as internally. I absolutely love the work I am able to do, and can’t believe I get to wake up each day and create beauty everywhere I go.


What I am Currently Obsessing Over

Chunky Sneakers.

Look. I know that these are super trendy right now, I get it. I will look back on these in 15 years and think to myself ‘what on earth was I thinking…’ but right now… i am OBSESSED.

A couple months ago I got a cheap pair of chunky white sneakers from Nasty Gal, just to test the waters and see if I would like wearing sneakers with more than just yoga pants and I really didn’t think I would be that bitch, but here I am. I am that bitch. I love big chunky sneakers.

I just got the Fila Disruptors in pink – the shoe that every instagram girl is all about – and again, I am obsessed. I love them. I spent 20 minutes yesterday outside my office building taking pictures of my sneakers and I have worn them every day since I got them. I cannot be stopped.
