I bear both good and bad news with this post, friends. Unfortunately last week I was unlucky to contract a nasty virus here in Bolivia that left me in the hospital and out of commission most of the week. With productivity at an all time low, and my poor self completely bedridden, I was unable to get anything on my list from last week accomplished and therefore I am repeating my goals for this week. #bummer.
On a brighter note, just before getting sick JC and I escaped the city for a quick 24-hour retreat to the mountains. It was so refreshing to take in clearer air and spend time completely alone reading in hammocks and going out for beers. Good news is I’ve got some fun projects lined up for September to look forward to so stay tuned! (Have you subscribed to the free Boho Diaries Newsletter to keep up to date with all the latest?

This week’s wishes/goals
1. Brainstorm e-book ideas. I’m doing it. I’m jumping on the bandwagon and thinking about publishing an e-book full of travel tips and photo pointers. I need a little project that I can start small and watch it grow, any advice? I really have no idea where to start…
2. Print and hang travel photos. We’ve been meaning to start a gallery wall since we moved into our apartment in Bolivia a YEAR AND A HALF AGO. I’d say it’s about to time to get at least one photo on the wall, you think? I’ll start with my collection of photos from Hawaii, can’t go wrong with an ocean print. I’m also going to throw installing a shelf in here because I’ve waited long enough to tackle this as well.
3. Find food photo props. You know, wood slabs and ceramic tiles to photograph pretty meals and give them either the rustic or elegant feel. Aside from models and fashion photography, food is one of the biggest photo markets for commercial work here in Santa Cruz and I’d like to build a better food portfolio. I absolutely love looking at food photos so who knows, maybe I’ll love shooting them as well.
4. Schedule this week’s posts, and the following. Using CoSchedule has been great, it’s just time to take it to the next level with my editorial calendar and get ahead of the week. Say for instance, have this post finished by Sunday so I’m not planning my weekly goals all day Monday. And as always, aim to post three and diversify my content. Let’s get to it!
