BLOGSPIRATION // PORTABLESERA

With all of us making so much of our lives public, it becomes one big ball of everyone’s photos looking the same, everyone repeating the same quotes—and all of us pressing like. Then comes portablesera. I stumbled upon her website during my nightly Instagram rabbit hole. It however, lead me to a really beautiful place—her […]
