life as i know it

pixelated spooky fun

I had the amazing opportunity a few weeks a ago to share my love for New Orleans and Instagram, at the same time. The New Yorker Magazine invited me to be a guest Instagrammer for their feed while I traveled to New Orleans for Halloween and Day of the Dead. ┬áHere are some of my fave images from the trip…
