The Advanced Selfie is all about taking a normal photograph and turning it into art. The online world is vicious but this girl ain’t going to let social media intimidate you because I’ll teach you hacks to level up your Instagram feed.
I’m a realist. I’ve been always very hopeful for the world, sometimes even to my surprise when a most common phrase around me is “I’ve lost hope in humanity”. I never agreed but didn’t know why.
Currently finishing the book Factfulness: Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World--and Why Things Are Better Than You Think, now I understand my attitude.
In the book, with supportive statistics, it shows that the world is…
Recently I met a person that gave me another eye roll when I told them I teach how to take Advanced Selfies. He didn’t understand. He thought it was pathetic. And when I explained the importance of the Advanced Selfie and how it helped me and how it helped him, he finally understood and acknowledged it was important.
I also started thinking in the recent months that maybe this isn’t the best thing to be teaching and maybe it’s a little lame and very shallow, but …
Daily practices I follow for a fulfilling life.
Journal daily - catch out repetitive and damaging thought patterns and document your beautiful life. So many of us don’t know how to be present, at least these notes will remind you of how you lived.
Bullet Journal extraordinaire. Talk about one thing that’s upped my productivity and given me brain space for more creativity. I have a video about my bullet set up on my channel.
Cold showers daily. They suck. But they…
Long, long time ago…actually roughly 60 years ago…in a land of confused humans, plastic became mainstream. This plastic thing was easily made out of a very accessible product - aka fossil fuel (aka liquefied fricking dinosaurs and plants that died millions of years ago)…which was drilled out of the depths of the earth to make it. Makes sense.
Today plastic lives amongst us in peace and harmony.
It’s a huge problem, you all probs know that.
There is no reason for anyone to be a starving artist in this day and age.
We have endless access to resources on how to teach us to make our craft a full time gig. But I think the problem may also lie in people’s incorrect idea about art and business, sometimes believing that doing business will make you less creative or that if you’re business minded, you’re probably a fake creative.
Ain’t nothing fake about eating two minute noodles all of your life and allowing your art to go to the grave with you because you didn’t know how to sell it.
I’m personally very grateful that I didn’t discover I was creative until …
I didn’t realise how many different can of worms a single video could open. My burnt out video I mentioned my houseless lifestyle is not conducive to productivity and fulfilment.
Some people became very frustrated over this since I’ve previously spoken a lot about being a nomad and how I think everyone should strive for this.
I'm not exactly sure how I feel about this topic because I feel like the wisdom that young people have is so significant and it is dismissed.
It's not like I'm dismissing wisdom from people that are older, I do agree they have a lot of wisdom, but I don't like that we're told always listen to older people because they always know best.
I think that's a recipe for a disaster because the innate self knowing and your intuition kind of gets overshadowed by this belief that older people always know better.
Greetings from Tokyo, Japan!
Today we're talking about an amazing topic and I've got a very special guest, my clever boyfriend Leon.
You guys know I'm so into health, I want to be as healthy as possible, but I'm not the expert on this. I actually get most of my information about health from this guy.
He's constantly reading, listening to podcasts and researching about everything health-related, so I have asked him to go into more details about the complexities, the research and the scientific stuff behind it!
I'm currently surrounded by chickens in Australia and I'm so freakin excited today to be talking to you guys about this topic!
It's kind of like a pep talk mixed in with a video and it is 31 ways of making money through photography (the amount of times I hear people asking how to make money through photography, it almost blows my mind!)
If you have pretty good skills, there are endless amounts of ways of making money through photography.
Well hello there human!
Today we're talking about how to book cheap travel because as a full time traveler, I like to get a really good deal on my flights (I think all of us do!)
Today I'm gonna reveal all my secrets of how I get the best travel at the best price - strap in my kiddos, we’ve got 7 points to go through!
I'm gonna save you guys the pain in the butt of having to deal with these horrible situations where you mess up, massively, so you can have the best holiday ever! No beating around the bush, let's get straight into it!
I always recommend just taking carry-on baggage. That's it, no check-in.
You do not need a lot of stuff when you're on the road, it is far more enjoyable having a few things then having to worry about dragging your bags through cobblestone streets in Europe for example.
Overpacking is one of the biggest mistakes most people make, so whatever you have, half that and then half it again, and that's roughly how much you should be taking when you're traveling.
This time last week, I came across Casey Neistat's daily routine video and I knew that this was a sign! I had been thinking about Casey’s insane routine for months so when this popped up on Youtube, I knew it was time to undertake the challenge of living like Casey Neistat for 7 days - starting now. No more excuses!
I really didn't know if this was a challenge that I could complete or if it was going be super easy, if I was gonna be overwhelmed, procrastinating or producing more. But I knew I wanted to know what it was like to live like this machine and imagine the insights I could get from living this way.
He's a hyper successful guy, I wanted to know what makes him so great and was it the routine that was helping him?
Hi there humans!
Today's concept is a little bit unique, As you guys know, I’m a Digital Nomad and for the last 15 or 16 months I've been traveling full time - that means i’ve stayed in a lot of different houses!
You guys keep saying “hey Sorelle, I really want to see where you're staying. Can we have a house tour?” but I felt kind of strange doing a house tour of an Airbnb!
That was until today! I decided that I'm going to do the advanced selfie Airbnb challenge, which is going to include two things:
1. Me finally giving you the house tour you have been asking for!
2. Photographing in this incredible Airbnb at the same time! (And you know me -
I personally really, really, really hate the blog post title but I knew that you guys would click on it because so many of you guys think that about yourself. Time and time again, I hear people say “I look so fat in photos!”. Let's be honest, you are your own worst critic sometimes. So, i’m sorry about the blog post title, I don't like it myself.
Today though, I am covering the common mistakes that curvy women make and showing you my top tips on how to pose in photos. I want you to feel as good as possible in every photograph that you take, so hopefully these tips will be a life changer!
If you saw last weeks video, you’ll know that I did a Casey Neistat style Q&A, which brought up some very interesting topics of conversation! In one of my answers, I mentioned the M word… MONEY.
‘Who’ and ‘what’ is the main drive behind what you do?
One of my main drivers is money. Let me explain…
We never really had that much money when we were young and I saw what that did to our family. For the longest time, I couldn’t decide whether or not to put that in the video, because there is so much negative connotation around people being driven by money (this drives me insane).
Instead of deleting the clip, I decided to
Let's talk about routines.
Specifically we're talking about the nighttime routine of Tim Ferris. I decided to challenge myself to take on this routine over the last 7 days, and found some fascinating results!
Here’s a really quick back story, because a lot of people often ask me what is the point of having a routine. At the beginning of the year I had the zero routine. I travel full time and I'm a Digital Nomad, which means that I was really scattered, with no concrete routine at all.
With this lack of structure, I noticed that my productivity and creativity was really suffering. Basically I was just flailing through life and I really didn't like it.
Today we're talking about a topic that I'm super passionate about - you may remember I made a video 6 months ago saying that I was going to trial the plastic free lifestyle for 30 days.
I got hooked! I completely fell in love with that way of life. It's fun, it's responsible and it's an awesome way to give back.
You may feel like 1 person can't really make a difference, well take a listen to my sisters story:
“I actually convinced a restaurant owner to go plastic free after I had a conversation with him about plastic straws and the damage that they're doing to the ocean and the plastic straws that are ending up in Turtles noses.”
