Burnt Orange Dress For Fall

After going to the post office today, I decided to make my way to a thrift store. I haven't been going as often, as I love to, due to financial purposes. Today, I gave in, I just had to. I am glad that I did because I bought a couple fun dresses. One I may be keeping but, the others I will add to my Etsy store. Here is the first dress I've added to my shop. More to come, soon!

Mui Mui

I know I could never afford any of these pieces but, they'd be so much fun to wear. If I had those boots I would sport them with all different outfits. I am in love with them. They also come in different colors. I prefer the black and white because I will pair black and white with anything.

Stop Motion Videos

Every so often, I get a new idea of something to create or try. My latest, is stop motion videos.

A few months ago, a video was posted on two blogs. Though, I can not remember the blogs I found the video. The video has inspired me to attempt a stop motion video of my own.

I have been doing my research about them and they look like a lot of fun. I think it will be a very time consuming project but, I want to make an attempt. I am writing out a list of ideas. Plotting my plans. I know, my execution will not be anywhere as professional as these. I am just fascinated with the idea.

If you are interested in viewing a few of these, watch the videos below. The first video was my inspiration.

The Honest Scrap Award


Photobucket

I was given this award by the friendly blogger A Masquerade Uncovered

Here are the rules: “The Honest Scrap” award is not one to hold all to your self but it must be shared! The recipient has to tell 10 true things about themselves in their blog that no one else knows. The recipient has to pass along this prestigious award to 10 more bloggers. Those 10 bloggers all have to be notified they have been given this award. Those 10 bloggers should link back to the blog that awarded them.
10 true things about myself:

1.) I hate writing about myself but, I love to read what others write about themselves.

2.) I watch a lot of the show Mythbusters. Besides that, I rarely watch television.

3.) I am not much of a sports fan.

4.) I've had nearly every hair color except, blue.

5.) I have my cosmetology license and I worked as a professional hairstylist for three years.

6.) I love painting walls.

7.) Marilyn Manson gives me chills in a good way.

8.) I really dislike texting and I find it rude when someone checks them, while you are having a conversation.

9.) I can't hold my cravings back for Dr. Pepper and Green Olives.

10.) I started selling vintage clothing so, I could continue my addiction of shopping.

Well, there's ten things about me and now, I hope to find out ten things about each of these bloggers. If you've already received this award, please don't feel obligated to fill it out again. As, I don't think I would. Hence, my number one on this list.

Oceanside Pier




Tuesday, I took some photos of my friend who is pregnant. She's such a beautiful young mommy to be. We went down to the Oceanside Pier and took some pictures right before sunset.

This last week I have finally been courageous enough to take my camera outside of my house. I am really starting to enjoy photography. I actually can't get enough of it.

This past week has been full of great photo opportunities. As, I was also able to take it to a friends wedding and take some fun candid shots. I need to edit the photos from the wedding.

For now here are a few of my friend at the pier.
