Pancakes – The Ultimate Breakfast Food

This gallery contains 10 photos.

Breakfast is by far my favorite meal. It is really the only thing you can eat any time of the day and it still feels right. Pancakes! Anytime! I unfortunately am quite lactose intolerant which means that I can not go out for breakfast and get to eat all the wonderful dairy filled meals. So […]

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.

 

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

Halloween!

Dear Halloween, 

I really do love you so. It is the best time of year because everyone gets to dress up and have crazy hair and makeup. They don’t just get to, they WANT to. There comes me. I get to sweep in and do lots of hair and awesome makeup, not only on myself but on my friends. Tonight is a pirate party which is going to mean a lot of curls and over exaggerated makeup. Red lips. Black Eyeshadow. Love!

Not to mention, halloween is the time of year that EVERYONE wants their picture taken. Everyone wants to remember all the effort and money they put into this one weekend. I then again get to swoop in and be the girl with the camera! So many cool shots. I really think that clubs and bars need to relax their rules about people coming in with their cameras (like the place I am going to today, they have a house photographer that must have gotten the job by nepotism or something of the like because his photos all end up terrible). So I will resort to pre-party photos, my first photo being this one of my friends cat. She is dressed up as a pirate for tonight’s theme. Hopefully I can get some better non-phone photos later on in the night!

Cheers for now, I am off to do some hair! 

Hello Again!

The posts before this are from when this blog was in it’s baby stages. I had actually forgotten about it for a very long time. I decided that I still love the pictures that I posted so I will leave the old posts up.

I am very excited to be back. I have been busy since I last posted. The next few posts will just be recaps of some shoots that I have done over the past year or so. Please comment and let me know what you think!

Much love to all,

-A
