Both of these spaces were created by a girl who goes by the name, Alyssa Forever. What I love about them is that Alyssa makes herself extremely relatable to her viewers. Through Youtube she does, hair, make up and lifestyle videos (mainly for African American women and those of mixed race) that are easy to follow for any person who owns a computer. Through instagram she gives the viewers a deeper look into her life. For years I have watched go from making Youtube videos in her hometown for fun, to actually making a career out of it and moving to LA. Watching her inspires me to look, feel and be my best self and that with hard work and dedication I, too, can fulfill my goals.
I love the above space because it takes me to a time long gone. i love it because Vintage Gal’s posts make me nostalgic of decades I wasn’t even a part of… but that’s how you know that it serves it’s purpose. Browsing through her space makes me want to live in that time and experience or be a part of the many things she posts about. I would like to make a space that people can connect to and make them think of good things and things they have experienced.
The above link outlines some of my favorite writing by Lana Del Rey, although she is a singer she started off with writing and doing a lot of poetry, sometimes she does monologues before the start of her songs. A lot of her writing I think is very inspiring and unique because she really connects to the public and I think that is what I like most. The fact that she can create beautiful phrases and everything has meaning to it.
