Friday's Fancies - April Showers!

I am really slacking on this whole blogging thing! I'm getting so bad at it :( I'm so sorry! But, you'll forgive me soon because I'm having a giveaway that someone is hosting for me! I won't reveal who or what but it will be next week! I will let you all know when it goes up! I'm so excited. It will be my first :D 

Anyway, I'm so happy to be doing a Friday's Fancies again. I've missed the past like 2 or 3 of them. This week's theme is April Showers! Yayyyy for Spring!

Short post for now but I'll be back for another post soon I promise!

I linked up with AV over at Long Distance Loving!

Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday!

It's Wednesday again! I can't believe how quickly the weeks are going by. It's my Spring Break and it has been nice so far. I haven't done anything worth talking about really. I was dying to go hiking up at Red Rock (a national recreational park here in town) today but my boyfriend had to meet up with some classmates to do a project. :( What kind of teacher assigns homework over Spring Break? Hopefully we will be going on Friday instead after I get off work, which I'm hoping to get off early around 2! I'll be sure to take lots of pretty pictures :D 

My inspiration for this week's Oh, How Pinteresting! is Coral & Aqua. I've been seriously obsessed with these colors lately. Every time I go out shopping I am drawn to this color combo.

all findings are found on {pinterest} !

One of my newest outfits is inspired by Coral & Aqua! 

On another note, I have created a few new designs for my Design Etsy! Here is one of them!

Available in any color of your choosing! :D

Oh, How Pinteresting! [5]

I've been dying to get back into the Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday posts! My life has been a roller coaster of crazy events! You know, just the usual school, work, boyfriend, and then the little but tedious things like keeping up with laundry, keeping my bedroom and bathroom clean (because you know how out of control those get being a girl with too many clothes..) My inspiration today is pretty clothes! Since I'll be shopping today :D (like I really need too.. my closet is overflowing..) But what girl can have too many clothes right? Especially since it's basically Spring! I'm absolutely loving this warm weather we're getting. Although it's making me nervous for Summer.. I live in like one of the hottest places on the Earth it seems. Where Summers get up to 120 degrees. Not fun. You can't even leave your house!  Anyway, my pins today have consisted of the long knee-length skirt/dress belted outfit! I'm so in love with this look that I'm hoping to find some clothing like these while shopping today!

white. red. yellow nails.

gray. yellow. brown. beaded necklace.

grey. brown braided belt. pretty embroidery.

pretty embroidery. brown belt. sea green polka dots.

grey cardi. brown braided belt. navy blue.

The last one isn't a skirt-dress but I liked it since it's got the cardi and belt :) I hope you all are having a wonderful week! My Spring Break is next week so today was my last day of class which is really exciting! I neeeeed a break from school so badly.

Oh and I of course linked up with Michelle over at The Vintage Apple!

Is anyone doing anything exciting for SB? I never do :(

I'm Still Alive!

Wow. February was exhausting. I really haven't blogged since February 11th?! I can't believe I'm actually finding the time to blog right now! Let me just explain how busy I've been. Right before WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International Convention) came along, I started to run around with my head cut off (not literally, hahaha). I had a couple events that I attended, Valentines Day was fun, then my friend from Virginia came home to visit (she's in the Navy) and my bestfriend was leaving to go into the Air Force (military sucks :( ) then WPPI happened and it changed my life! And not in just one way. I got about 4- 6 hours of sleep every night the week they were in town. It took a toll on my body. I'm still surprised I didn't end up getting sick. Especially because Ally and I did nothing but drink a whole lot of Starbucks! Anyway..

If you are a photographer or aspiring to be one, you NEED, I repeat NEED to attend next year. I am telling you.. you will walk away, mind blown. I can't wait until next year already! Here is how WPPI works. It's a 5-7 day photography convention where you attend Platform Classes where world class photographers teach, explain their stories and give you the motivation you need to become a great photographer! It is the biggest photography convention ever. Ally and I attended 2-3 classes daily. I gained SO much knowledge that I will never forget. On the second day they opened the tradeshow part of the convention, which is the most fun but the most exhausting. Thousands of vendors are there with their booths. Vendors such as printing/lab companies, videographer companies, backdrop and prop companies, and so many more. I honestly can't even go into detail because there's just SO much.

While we were there, a new 'Sugar Factory' opened up! I was so excited. If any of you are familiar with the Kardashian's, you'll know that they're like obsessed. Anyway, got me some candy which I'm currently eating still :)

After WPPI, Arica (my boss) held another workshop at the studio. Two of them actually. They took place the Saturday & Sunday after WPPI. One was a Photography 101 workshop & the second one was a workshop focused on Pet Photography and the skills you need to photograph pets! She did so good, we all had so much fun.

On top of all that, I was trying to balance school and Jimmy and both of my Etsy shops. But I managed. Just felt really crazy! My Bauble Stones Etsy shop is picking up and I couldn't be happier! It's like owning my own business and being my own boss. It's like a second job and I LOVE IT! Since the last time that I blogged, I have listed my Custom Photo Necklaces in my shop! Here are a couple examples.

I wear mine everyday! I absolutely love it. I want to make like 10 of them for myself haha. I also have a couple more of the Bird Nest Necklaces posted as well.

Now that I'm not as busy with everything, hopefully I can get back into the swing of things! I've missed Instagram Tuesdays, Oh How Pinteresting! Wednesdays, & Friday's Fancies! See you all tmrw!
