Wander off for a bit and get to know this ethereal daydreamer, Anastasjia:
Tell us a little about yourself! Who is Anastasjia!
I am a 23-year-old daydreamer who is always thirsty for adventure! Whether it’s somewhere deep in the forest, lost in an antique store, or inside a book…I am always seeking magic in my mind. Although I am introverted, I love to share my many thoughts and creations with the world online. I am a Youtuber who documents my journey, lifestyle and fashion… and I may make one too many dad jokes. I am an awkward bundle of joy, or at least that’s what my mom says…
Oregon is where I currently reside, but home is somewhere I have yet to find! I like to think home is somewhere deep inside our minds.
What inspires you?
I get inspiration from everything around me; the wind in my hair, the shade of lipstick the cashier chose to wear that day, blooming flowers through the cracks of cement…there is beauty and inspiration in everything if you look close enough.
When did you first dye your hair? What color did you choose?
I first started dyeing my hair when I was 15-years-old. My choice was the most horrific (now terrific) blend of orange tone highlights. I thought I was the coolest highlighted girl in school, let’s be honest.
Where would you go in a time travel machine and why?
If I could get my hands on a time travel machine, you best believe I would be out of here in a heartbeat! I have always considered myself an old soul, so to choose an era would be difficult! I would love to visit ancient Egypt and witness the pyramids being built, but I would also adore the simple sixties as well!
You post some lovely photos of flowers on your IG! What is your favorite flower and why?
'Tis the blooming season! My feed changes with the seasons and right now Oregon is blooming beautifully! I would say my favorite flower would be babies breath or daisies. I love simplistic beauty.
If you had one more day to live, what would you do?
If I were to only have one day left to live, I would most definitely spend it with my loved ones! I would hope to spend it reminiscing on old memories while exploring a forest or a childhood landmark.
If you could only drink 3 different beverages for the rest of you life, what would they be?
If I could only drink three different beverages for the rest of my life I would chose coconut water, apple juice, and vegan chai tea lattes. Hands down.
If you could be any animal in the world, what would you be?
If I could be any animal I would chose to be a blue bird. No other animal represents freedom, innocence and expression quite like the vocal little blue bird.
What is your favorite book or movie and why?
One of my favorite books and movies is The Virgin Suicides. I found the book and film in my early teen years and felt instantly connected to the melancholy yet dreamy vibes. The story is tragic and moving, I would describe it as a beautiful mess.
What do you wish to accomplish before this year ends?
Honestly, this year has been a rough one for me in regards to motivation and expression. I hope to get back to creating and exploring more often! All-in-all, I am hoping to get back into expressing myself unapologetically!
