Earings

One of my obsessions in life is earings. I love them. If I go a day without earings, I feel naked. They are my necessity even over makeup. My search is for cheap, cute earings that I never see anywhere else. Here are my newest pairs of earings, 2$ each pair!

These are #33 and #34 of my collection. I have picked up earings from all over the place. Never paying more than 10$ a pair and those were my splurge pair. I am thinking I should start making my own earings because 18$ for a pair of feather earings is simply robbery. I feel like I won’t be able to find matching pairs of things to make my earings from. Does anyone out there make their own earings? Any advice? I hear that it is fairly easy and quite cheap but I have just never done it.

A few months back I got in contact with a model I’ve worked with in the past, Madelein Erasmus. She called me up saying that she found this fantastic location and that we just had to shoot there. Not ever seeing the location before we got there just hearing her rave about it, I was […]

Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the horror of the shade

And yet the menace of the years

Finds and shall find me unafraid.

-“Invictus” by William Henley

This just so happens to be a verse of a poem that I repeat to myself daily. I know it cheesy and overused but I love it. I have always said that if I were ever to go completely crazy you would find me in a corner repeating the entire “Invictus” poem to myself. So I thought I would share with you my favorite verse. It is actually kind of silly because in my room there are about three different versions of it. It is what gives me strength and the power to go on in difficult situations. Funny thing about this poem is that I would never have known about it had I not been obsessed with One Tree Hill back in high school. I remember when I first heard a line from it and loved looking up all the quotes I heard from that show. If you have ever seen it, you know that Lucas was just “oh so deep”. A few of my favorite quotes actually came from that show.

The Hat

Erin Meehan is my roommate and a good friend of mine. She is obsessed with fashion and loves finding things that not everyone can wear. One day she comes home with a large floppy black hat and was oh so pleased with it! We decided that a photo session must be done surrounding this hat. […]

I am terribly sad that due to a very large and daunting History of Modern Germany midterm today; I was unable to take all the Halloween photos that I wanted to. Work and school make it very difficult to find time to do the beautiful and fun things in life. Oh and I forgot to mention sleeping. I enjoy getting my full 8 hours and will give that up for only a very few things in life.

Hopefully tonight I can still get a few shots. Well, back to studying for me! Enjoy your Halloween everyone and take lots of fantastic photos so that I can see and comment and pretend like I had the time to do the same this Halloween.

Life trumps Halloween…unfortunately
