life moments

Happy Friday again :) Here are some pix from my life as of late...



I've acquired an accordion... more on that later.

Apples with sugar and cinnamon, and peanut butter crackers! This snack was so nostalgic, i can't even...

A flower that I had picked a few months ago at Watch Hill, that I wore in my hair in this post. When visiting my family recently, I found it exactly where I had left it, on the dresser.

Matt making cappuccinos for us :) Cinnamon on top.

My new cute scarf... on the floor at a recent haircut (of which I didn't like and had to fix myself.)

Huge shoutout to Amanda from the Salvaged Strawberry for sending me these amazing flat irons! I sent out a tweet asking for recommendations, and she sweetly offered to send me two that she wasn't using.

Practicing some new, fancy lighting rig we got... yes, we were shooting rolls of toilet paper, because they happened to be a convenient item to grab. Scout's curious about the light.

  1. The cinnamon apples is too funny because I microwaved and cut up some nice fresh green apples and sprinkled some cinnamon on em yesterday for part of my lunch. It was delicious. Also, the cappaciono's look amazing. And i love the scarf. AND THE ACCORDION. oh my goodness. How many people can say they own one? Not many. I'm jealous. haha

  8. lovely pictures.
    I went to a primary school that had a big focus on folk and country music, they taught children to play the acordian while clog dancing! pretty amazing, whenever I see them now I think back to those days
    Also I've been eyeing up the Orla Kierly for uniqlo stuff, need to make a decision soon if I'm going to be able to get anything

  10. I haven't had my hair professionally cut in ages. I just like my do it at home version just the same. My husband cuts the length and I add in the layers. Works for me and no more botched salon cut disapointments.
