Creativity Initiative #4 || Link-Up

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I don't think I have been this excited for a Thanksgiving in a long time. For the first time in a couple years, my whole family is together for Thanksgiving. My brother, his fiancé and her sister are in town and the house is full again. Its the best. So this quote pretty much sums it up for me. Today I am excited (and grateful) about everything. Yep.

So, next weeks prompt is Dreams. Whether that means that dreams you had last night or the dreams you have for the future. Its up to you!

I hope you you all have a great Thanksgiving! Eat A LOT of turkey!

Joules Wellies

I have been wanting some rain boots for the longest time. They can come in handy living in the Northwest, you know? So when I got sent a pair of Joules Wellies (rain boots for us Americans), I was ecstatic. Joules is a British clothing brand that just made the jump into America. They have something for everyone in your adventurous family. Their clothes and shoes are made to be worn out and about, having fun and living life to the fullest. How awesome is that?
These wellies (don't you just love that name more than rain boots) are no exception in the quality department. They have a very thick sole, something that you don't have to worry about walking around in a muddy field with or on the city streets or you know, puddle jumping. And it helps keep your feet a little warmer during the cold seasons! Their name on the front of the boots? Thats not painted on their, that's an enamel plate. Talk about high quality!
These wellies are going to last me a very long time. I couldn't be happier with them! I highly recommend you go check them out and take a look at their cute clothes and accessories! And remember, they now ship to the U.S.!

Shop Pretty Lovely New Additions || Winter Hair Bows & A Surprise!

I added some new winter bows to my shop! I love velvet during this season and thought velvet bows would look great with cozy winter outfits. A deep red, black and navy blue were the perfect colors to choose for winter. I also added a red lace one and a red and gold polka dot bow. The perfect festive additions for the upcoming holidays. These bows would also make some perfect stocking stuffers and Christmas gifts. Now for the surprise! All orders placed before December 1st will get an additional free surprise with their order! Sounds pretty good, huh? Now, get to shopping!

Creative Initiative Link-Up || #3

Its week three of the creative initiative! This weeks prompt was nature, my favorite! So, if you created anything this week inspired by nature, be sure to link up below! And if you haven't, thats alright! You can link up anytime this week! Go create something!

I embroidered this deciduous tree, with the colorful fallen leaves. Describes the season right now so well. Almost all the pretty yellow, orange and red leaves have fallen and we are left with bare trees. This morning I woke up to frost and the brightest sun you will ever see. This weather makes the mountains in distance look gorgeous! One day I will have to document that. Seriously, I love where I live.
Now we all know that next week is Thanksgiving here in the states. So with that coming holiday, next weeks prompt will be Gratitude. What are you thankful for? Draw, sculpt or embroider it. Then come back next week, link up and check out what others are thankful for. Have fun!

It's My Birthday!

Today I turn 24 years old. Woah. Today will be spent at the mall, hopefully finding things for my trip to Europe next month as well as getting some Christmas shopping done. Then tonight, we are going to dinner on the waterfront in Seattle and possibly take a ride on the Great Wheel afterwards. Hopefully. It would be neat to ride it at night. I also got a new skirt from Ever + Mi Crush. A midi skirt. I have yet to own one of those, but I saw this one and couldn't pass up on it. We'll see how it goes! I'm kind of nervous about it. Does that sound ridiculous? Probably.
You see this sparkly gold bow I am wearing? You can get it from my shop! I made it especially for my birthday month and with the holidays just around the corner, I thought it would be perfect for all those holiday parties. This time of the year, it is all about the gold sparkle and sequins. I love the way it turned out!

The Farm

I would like to introduce you to my friends, the horses. They make a lovely backdrop, don't they? I was quite pleased to see that they were hanging out by this fence and willing to be in my pictures. This place is my grandparents farm. My favorite place to take pictures. Its got all different kind of sceneries to choose from as well as horses. Whats not to love? As for this outfit, when I got this sweater, this was the first outfit I thought to pair it with, but the weather or occasion or timing was never right, until now. I just wore it out and about getting things done. So comfortable but looks completely put together. My favorite. 

Don't forget to enter the Ali Oesch Giveaway! It ends on Friday!

Currently it is 10:01 pm on Friday night. 
The rain is coming down outside, so I cracked my window open a little to hear it better. The most perfect sound. 
I have all the lights on in my room, creating the most cozy ambiance. 
Listening to the John Denver station on Pandora, making me want to be in a cabin in the snowy woods.
Good night all.

The Rules
1. Create something based on this weeks prompt, Nature. 
2. Blog about your creation and link it with this post.

Have Fun!

R & MB Engagement Photos

Back in September I took a little trip down to Newport Beach, California to take my brother and his fiancés engagement pictures. This was my first time doing something like this. Like taking someone else's pictures other than my own. It's safe to say I was a little bit nervous. This was something I did not want to mess up. You'll see that there is a picture of them with the Matterhorn in the background from Disneyland. You could say that this was practice for the real thing next month. Yep, they are getting married in Zermatt, Switzerland where the real Matterhorn is and I will be taking their wedding pictures!! I'm just a teensy bit excited (!!!!!!!).
