A Guide on Taking Meaningful and Beautiful Travel Pictures
(Horse and Jaunting Buggy at Muckross House in Killarney National Park, Ireland)
Every once in awhile, I have the pleasure of guest blogging over at Grace Belle Blog. If you haven’t checked them out, you should. It is a super sweet blog all about travel, beauty, living authentically, and more. This post was featured last week on their blog but I have wanted to share this is all of you too!
Two of my favorite things in one post: Interior Design and Ikea.
With our moving day fast approaching (holy cow, we can’t wait), we decided to make the trip down to our Ikea. We just couldn’t wait any longer. We love Ikea like it is our job. While we were able to have some restraint with our purchasing, there were some items we just couldn’t pass up.
With our new house, we are wanting to incorporate our old furniture but with a more updated classy look.
Here is what our living room looked like in DC, to see our whole apartment, check out this post here.
With our new living room, I’m thinking that more black and white accent pieces with vibrant pops of color will make our space just awesome. I’m loving the elegant look of the black and white with gold, pink, and green accents. Love, Love!
Although, who doesn’t love kitties, rainbows, and unicorns thrown up on a brightly colored binder, but now as a grown up, I want something a little bit more… stylish.
With a new year, comes a new planner and calendar! I almost get as excited for this time of year as much as I get excited for Christmas.
Bring on the planning.
Since starting Flourish and Hope, my design business and going back to work full time here in Colorado, I currently work in HR for an oil company, I find myself getting lost in the days. I need a planner that will help me stay on track for everything I do, even better if it looks like the BA (bad ass) I need it to be, lots of space to write, jot, note take, and of course plan.
I can’t get enough of cute calendars either. I may be the person who hangs one up in every room! I can’t tell you how many times I’m in the bathroom getting ready needing to know what day it is. I’m the person who always keeps asking what day it is even if you just told me 5 mins ago.
I have gathered my favorite planners and calendars for this year. Including my favs…. may you never forget what day it is ever! And if you still have to ask, I’m right there with you!
There sometimes comes a product across your path that you just absolutely fall in love with.
I, my friends, have fallen in love.
Somedays, we just stare into each others eyes and it doesn’t care what I look like in the morning, it embraces it.
Earlier this month, I was contacted by a lovely lady, Jessica, to take some pictures of her all natural skin care products. I was overjoyed with the thought of trying some new sweet smelling, good for you skin care. I have super sensitive skin and using too much of the drug store brand stuff can cause major reactions. I also don’t like shelling out my dollar bills for an itsy bitsy bottle of the high end stuff. So what’s a girl on a budget to do? Enter SkinDeep Naturals.
Jessica is the leading lady behind SkinDeep Naturals and when she started, she wanted to make a product line that was good for your skin, good for the environment and full of good ingredients. You won’t find any artificial fragrances, synthetic materials or any type of wax that isn’t made from bees. This stuffs legit y’all!
And because I want you to experience what amazing stuff this is, Jessica and I are teaming up for a giveaway.
Two of my favorite products (and this is so hard because I really love them all), are the Exfoliating Facial Cleanser and the Cleansing Clay Mask. They are gentle enough to use everyday and smell amazing and for one lucky reader, you will get one of each for your very own! Merry Christmas to whoever you are. Just scroll down to enter.
You will receive a 4 oz bottle of the exfoliating cleanser!
