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.


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.

Inspiration #1 – Invictus

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. […]

Dana by the River in the Summertime

This gallery contains 7 photos.

These photos are from a photoshoot done in August 2011. They were taken by Matsqui Park on the Fraser River in Abbotsford. It was a spur of the moment idea to go out on this beautiful day. I am so very pleased with all the photos that I got from that day! Please let me […]

Halloween is approaching as we all know and I have, for the first time ever, carved my very own pumpkin. I went to the pumpkin patch (which was so adorable and I just wanted to take so many pictures of all the cute children but then realized that that may not be apprecated) and I picked out the best looking pumpkin there. I named her Mrs. Pumpkin, though I realize that is not very original. She was a difficult one to carve. I had no idea that pumpkins were so thick. Well in the end it turns out that pumpkin carving is not one of my fortes. I was attempting to give her hair and well, a slight mishap occured leaving her with two large holes in the side of her head!

Well here is a picture of her for you all to see! I tried to avoid getting her unfortunate hair holes in the photo!
