HOW TO BE MORE THAN A #SELFIE

IMG_0763

This “Talk Tuesday” is particularly special because we are finally releasing our Tedx Talk “How to be more than a #selfie.” :’)

One of our greatest hopes as artists in this social media heavy world is to help define the line between self obsession & self expression. It’s undeniable that Social Media is changing the way the world works and because of this, we have taken it upon ourselves to make that change a positive one. Which is exactly what our Tedx Talk is about! We encourage everyone, young people especially to use the internet for the greater good, to create an impact beyond the self.  We KNOW everyone has more to offer than what is seen at face value and we want to help make it happen. We want to show you how to be more than a selfie.

OUR TEDx STORY:

We have been HUGE fans of TED Talks for a while now, and that’s putting it mildly. We watch them religiously. We often reference them in our daily lives and “Give a TED talk” was #1 (no joke) on our bucket list. It’s safe to say we were surprised and honestly underprepared when the opportunity introduced itself sooner than we could have imagined. Early this year we were approached about speaking at TEDxCDLH … in MEXICO. PUDDLE – we became a puddle of shock, happiness, excitement, nervousness, and every other emotion you could imagine. Was this really happening? Were we really going to do this? Yes. As nervous as we were and despite the fact that we had never really spoken in public before… this was an opportunity (a blessing)  we could not say no to.  So the whirlwind of a journey began. We had a few obstacles to get through. 1. figuring out how to speak with two people on stage vs. the traditional TED talk style of one. 2. figuring out how to write our talk and practice while being states apart. We went back and forth in writing and HONESTLY didn’t get to practice together until 48 hours before we left for Mexico. HOLY. Very little sleep, lots of laughter and lots of stress happened in that time. But we pushed through it all and off to Leon we went.

The TED experience was greater than anything we could have hoped for. The city was beautiful, but the people were even better. We were welcomed by a happy, energetic and supportive crew who lovingly supported us and all the other speakers. No one felt like a stranger and our friendship grew stronger than ever before. With the lights in our eyes and the support of one another, we walked on that stage and we shared our message. It was scary but it was worth it. We knew it wasn’t about us, but about the people we could impact.

Thank you to everyone from TEDXCDLH who organized the event and believed in us enough to put us on that stage. And another special thank you to all the incredibly talented and influential people we were fortunate enough to share the experience with. Life is a wild ride and we are embracing every second of it. Thanks for riding along.

Watch our talk below! :)

COACHELLA DIARIES

Processed with VSCOcam with t3 preset

It’s safe to say this year in the desert with Garage Clothing tops the last. For those of you who have never been, let us paint you a picture.

Sky – empty of clouds during the day and as if someone pulled only the good crayons out of the box at night

Smell – a combination of a 12 year old boy after soccer practice, the bonsai tree section of a garden store and the tastiest treat you could imagine. It’s confusingly pleasant.

People -We are convinced that at the front entrance of the festival there’s a magic invisible forcefield  everyone walks through that either 1. Makes everyone extra attractive or 2. Makes your eyes see everyone as being abnormally attractive. Also every seems extra happy. You could probably guess why.

Possibility – We have learned to never doubt the Possibilities of Indio. If you’re going to get picked up by a stranger like Baby in Dirty Dancing while your best friend holds hands with more strangers in a ring-around-the-rosie circle around you…. Coachella is the place for it. (Yes this happened to us)

Fashion – Coachella is it’s own weird little world, think Truman show mixed with Halloween mixed with NYFW. You can get away with a lot more than normal and most people take advantage of that. For us, we stuck close to our style roots but played it up with hats and jewelry that we usually hold hostage until festival season hits. Shoutout to Garage Clothing for yet another amazing year of fun and clothes. Shop our outfits below!
