Beautiful views and I’m still looking at you.
I’ll just be here listening to the @euphoria playlist and putting on hotpink eyeshadow until season two comes out ✌🏼
The sun doesn’t apologize for her bad days, For her days that she doesn’t quite make it out of the clouds. And no matter who feels her, soaks her in, Or shuts her out- She shines. She shines Because she is warmth. She shines Because she is light. you, me, and her We are beautifully alike. @kari.c.riley
I dunno just happy 😇
Fall in love with these everyday moments ♡
Happy Monday cutie pies ☺️ here’s a little reminder to do something that makes you happy today. Create some art, lay in the sun, kiss somebody you love, drink a good cup of coffee, listen to your favorite song, write down your dreams and detach from the things in your life that bother you. Slow down, & indulge in the simple pleasures of living ✨💙
@instagram won’t let me like photos and it’s becoming really annoying because everyone is posting such beautiful content 😭 what did I do wrong!?
Soulmates are not limited to lovers. Soulmates are the people in our lives who hold up a mirror and show us all the beautiful parts of ourselves that we didn’t know. They bring out the best inside of us without expecting anything in return. They unconditionally love us and nurture our dreams as they grow. They are the angels we feel surrounding us everyday and the ones who make life feel limitless. I am so grateful for all the angels in my life. My best friends, my family, my soulmates. 💗💗💗
Women belong in the kitchen. Men belong in the kitchen. Everyone belongs in the kitchen. Kitchen has food 🍊
Not every person is meant to become your solution. Not every person will become your life long friend or your soulmate. Some people play a different magic in our lives. There are many that will hurt us and scar us, but there will also be some who heal us and show us compassion...or maybe a few who simply just distract us from life. They are there to teach us lessons or to show us what feels right and what feels wrong. They will come and they will go. Not every person will stay forever. Not every person has the ability to be your endgame. This is something you have to grow to accept and appreciate. Every interaction and relationship you have will shape you and give you the opportunity to learn how to love yourself and how to love others. Live with openness and expect nothing. Give and take love with no timeline. Experience humanity and never look back. @kari.c.riley
Raise your hand if you feel personally victimized by mercury in retrograde 🙋🏼♀️
I’ve spoken more words to you made up in my mind than both of us have spoke to each other combined @kari.c.riley
I’ll get over it I just gotta be dramatic first

The barista just handed me my cappuccino and said “bon appétit” which really caught me off guard and now I’m just confused... like is my cappuccino a meal? Do people actually say “bon appétit” for drinks too? Haha or maybe she was just messing with me? Anyway here is an unrelated selfie & I hope you all enjoy your Thursday 😊🖤

We all have a deep need to live for something larger than ourselves. A constant knocking on the inside of our consciousness to run towards magic. To chase chaos. To explore the unknown. Answer that knocking... open that door. Step outside of what you know and follow your fantasies. It’s never too late to introduce your dreams to your reality. I think they will make perfect friends. @kari.c.riley
Happy Friday here’s my face ☺️🌷
There is no skimming through growing up. There are no footnotes to life. You have to absorb every chapter and read all of the confusing words. You may not understand some parts, and there are times you will want to skip ahead to the better ones. But remember – those parts haven’t been written yet. You are the author, and every day is a new page in your novel. Instead of wishing for a happy ending, focus on your story, and make sure you write a damn good one. @kari.c.riley
Yesterday was one of the hardest days I’ve had mentally and emotionally in a really long time. It was one of those times that felt like no matter what I did, and no matter what anybody said... it just wasn’t going to get better. I always feel like I’m too busy to even think about how stressed and drained I am, so I allow everything inside of me to just be pushed down and build up. Yesterday was a huge reminder to check in with myself more often. Even when I’m running around with a smile on my face and everything seems okay, I need to slow down and ask myself, “how am I really doing?” It’s so easy to get caught up in life everyday. We build up so much stress doing all the things we “need” to do, that we forget about doing those things that really bring us joy. We spend so much time making sure work is getting done, and our relationships are being nurtured, that we fall out of rhythm with ourselves and forget to tune in. - I’m sharing this to remind you. Check in with yourself today. How are you feeling? Mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually? We all play a part in society and yes we have to get things done... but we also have to make a choice every day to do something just for ourselves. I am feeling a million times better today. I did a little reflection and tuned back in with myself. It’s okay to feel lost every now and then. I’m not perfect, you are not perfect, and we should NEVER feel any pressure to be perfect. I love you guys... don’t forget to love yourselves a little today too!
are they flaws if I’m in love with them?
rolled out of bed sunny side up 🐣
I started a new little thing that I want to share with you guys. I have a little note in my phone that I call my “list of joy” it’s become a little trick of mine to be more mindful about my environment and my emotions everyday. Every time something brings me joy, whether it’s for one minute or one second, I try to recognize it and make a note. It can be saying hello to a friend, or as small as seeing a dog going for a walk. Sometimes it’s my first sip of coffee in the morning or a text from my mom and sometimes it’s as simple as the way palm trees line the streets of Los Angeles. At the end of everyday when I’m laying down in my bed, I take a look at the list, and I smile. I’m shocked at how many beautiful things surround me each and every day and I’m surprised at how easily I let them pass me by in the past. This life is stunning and it’s crazy how once you notice it, you will feel like you’re just overdosing with graciousness. Comment something that brings you joy 💕
GUESS WHOSE VISA JUST GOT ACCEPTED!?!? Come home to me @aga_wojtasik 👏🏼❤️🥰
bored of this city
Don’t post and drive
Is now a good time?
if it were up to me, i’d spend eternity in this bed wrapped up in a blanket of pillows warm a little bit tired and next to you. @kari.c.riley
Weird flex but ok
I’m just a dreamer looking for somebody to dream about
I am deep cleaning my apartment today 🧼 nothing is more therapeutic than getting into every tiny crevasse and the smell of cleaning products 😂 FUNFACT: I’m honestly such an organization and clean freak. My closet is color coordinated and my hangers cannot touch. And if my fridge has a fingerprint on it... I might freak out. 🙃🧽
My Friday face 😁😁😁
Overwhelmingly grateful for all of the people in my life. I feel so so loved and happy and full. Yesterday was perfect. And 22 feels brand new. Life is good 😍💐
Wow, twenty-two. How did I get here? Feels like I’ve just been growing up without my own permission. I have realized there’s no such thing as becoming an adult. We all just grow older and learn about how the world works a little more every day. We will always be those crazy, curious, naïve kids waiting for the day it all starts to make sense. It never will. So I dance inside of my confusion and cherish my every day. We often forget to cherish our moments before they become memories. And that’s my goal. To be able to think back and remember how I was feeling inside of these moments, because they are the only thing that is truly mine. Sometimes I get scared. I get confused. I feel lost. I’m right at that point in my life where nothing really feels planned. I feel like I’m just allowing the wind to take me in the direction it pleases. And that’s okay. You just have to take things day by day. And day by day it appears that nothing is changing and nothing is growing. Sometimes you feel stuck - at a standstill. It’s strange how we feel this way because when we finally look back, we realize how nothing is the same. And I’m glad for that. Here’s to 22! My lucky number. My golden year. I couldn’t be happier with the strange life I have in this alien world. Every year is a reminder that I have a purpose here. Thank you to everybody who has been, is, and will be apart of my journey. P.S. props to making it to the end of this long post. It’s hard to have that kind of attention span these days. If you made it to the end of this caption comment your zodiac sign & welcome to Gemini season! ♊️💕✨
Hey you. Yeah, you. You’re wonderful ☺️ (and don’t you forget it!!)
Always stop for golden hour 🌞
Hi, here’s a digital of my bare baby face. Enjoy.

Sometimes the spark will die And we pack up all those good memories into a box Tape it shut And label it “the good old days” We push it underneath the bed Or stuff it up in the attic Along with all the other forgotten love And sometimes When decide to sort through things We remember How that spark felt So we look back at the memories And smile I wonder if Instead of packing away What hurts us We frame it And put it next to our bed To remind ourselves that everything we experience Is apart of who we are And only we Control our own happiness Maybe then We will look at our hurt and realize We are our own spark @kari.c.riley
My birthday is in exactly one week and I’m celebrating by having cheesecake for breakfast this morning before my flight 😋 My mom is even gonna put a candle in it. Go me 🎉
