You know how you’re warned not to look at instagram too much because other people’s lives might make you feel bad about your own and/or it’s all super curated or fake? Well, sometimes there are accounts where someone’s life doesn’t make you jealous but is so much fun to look at it makes you happy and inspired. In our insta inspo’s we share some of our favorite people we adore scrolling through. This is Shayna / @_purple_palace a visual artist and video content creator. She also happens to be an American in Paris and we’re watching her YouTube channel to improve our French. (okay, and to see her super fun videos & amazing style 😉 )
She is an avid thrifter and her style is fearless and fun and just looking at it can brighten my day. And more than that, inspires me to be more daring with my own looks – even during lockdowns!
We asked her how Covid was affecting her early on in the pandemic on instagram and we’re re-sharing now because even though there are vaccines on the horizon Rona is not going away without a battle. So her thoughts are still relevant. And we’re following this up with a few of our favorite looks and captions from her instagram that shows how she serves us major inspiration all the time.
How has adjusting to the current climate of COVID-19 impacted your life?
In a lot of ways as an artist that is used to spending long hours in my studio or editing, staying inside is nothing new. I actually see a lot of positives in this, because I have less distraction and more time to focus on my work.
What are 3 things you are doing during this time to keep sane?
I am painting, DIYing clothes and working on film projects
Any words of wisdom you want to share?
You have to be the one to hype yourself up and get yourself excited for the day –whether that be a crazy dance in the morning, journaling or setting small goals for yourself!
