Fairies In The Garden

Can we take a second to admire all of the loveliness that is this photograph?!
I had a wonderful time working with some of my dear friends over the holiday break!
I am so blessed to have such talented and motivated friends!
The amazing photographer is by J.Schell, She has such an eye for photography and beautiful composition!
The hair and makeup was done by my other friend Brenna of BrennaBeauty(The girl in the blue).
The other model was my friend Ilyssa who is also a professional hair and makeup artist!
The fashion styling was my job and boy did I have fun with this one! 
Who wouldn't like styling an enchanted fairy garden like shoot on the grounds of a historic plantation house in the deep south?!
A crazy person!!!

For more photos from this shoot  and others like it check out the J.Schell tumblr page!
Seriously you will wonder why you haven't seen her stuff yet(and become addicted) if you haven't already!

The Man On The Moon

 I have an infatuation with the moon and the night I took these pictures my infatuation only grew. 

 The grain silo in the distance is the same one my brothers and I would pretend was a lumbering Giant or a hungry T-Rex it seem silly now but it was so fun back then. 
 Seriously how photogenic can one dog be?

 Thank you for stopping by and looking at my randomness.

Have a nice night and sweet dreams.

For Him

Here it is, my gift guide for the guys!!!
I know it's all pretty self explanatory when you see the picture right in front of you but let me explain so this post has more substance!

The Blanket is perfect for the romantic guy you could pack a picnic for and it can also be used for a night of stargazing. (le sigh) <Catch the Pepe Le Pew reference? It IS his favorite holiday!

The GoPro HERO 3 makes a great gift for the adrenaline junky/aspiring film maker, They have a few different models out now and if your guy already has the actual camera try getting him one of the many camera mounts so he can use it in style!
  (I know I used the HERO 2 in the picture but that is the one my brothers' use! ;))

The Cologne(AQUA DI GIO) and watch(Fossil) are for the more sophisticated guys that care about appearances.

The beats and the Guitar pick shaped deck of cards is for the music lover.

The bow ties are vintage and adorable meant for the adorkable guy who digs that kind of stuff!
Adorkable is a good thing if anyone was wondering!

All of these things are just suggestions to give you some inspiration you can mix things up to suit your guy or you don't even have to choose any of these items at all!
I hope no one ever thinks that I'm saying BUY THIS because I say so!
I just want to give a visual aid, if you will, for those who are looking for suggestions! ^_^ 
Did you notice that the ladies gifts were shades of pink and now the guy's things are mostly red?!
I did plan the pink but this time the red and black thing just kind of happened!
It was too cool not to point out! 
I hope this helped ladies!

Bohemian Androgyny

 Here's a look for that bohemian babe who doesn't want their outfit to scream "I'm wearing pink because it's valentine's day!!!"
The top is actually a very soft blush of a pink.
This outfit makes me think Tom Sawyer meets Free People meets Piper(I don't iron anything)!
This would be cute for a sweet picnic or a hike with your honey!
Minus the earrings for the hiking everything else is perfect!
The earrings are vintage and used to be my moms for a long time before she gave them to me!
I remember trying them on all the time when I was little and shaking my head just to hear them jingle.

I hope this gave someone a hint of inspiration for their Valentines day get up! 
I think that I will be doing a couple of more outfits for you guys and maybe even some men's outfit ideas!
This look is actually pretty androgynous so if you are a guy and you like this look, Go for it!
Also if you saw yesterday's post you might wonder why I skipped jewelry as a good gift!
To be honest I think jewelry is a tricky one for guys to nail, although if you are 100% confident that you have your lovely lady friend's style down pat then you go Glenn Coco!
Bonus points if it's something you remember her mentioning in passing!!!

Well my friends I hope you are having a lovely day and lots of
xoxo's !

My Funny Valentine

Valentine's Day is just around the corner!
Here are some pretty pink items that I have enjoyed and maybe you would too!
You can buy them for your loved one, special someone or even yourself!

The REVLON colorburst matte balm is in the shade Unapologetic.
The NYX butter gloss is in the shade Strawberry Parfait.
The Tart Amazonian clay 12 hour blush is in the color achiote.
I know the perfume is an obvious one but just in case someone doesn't know it's the Marc Jacobs scent Daisy Eau So Fresh.
It smells beautiful and the bottle is just the CUTEST thing!!! 

This picture was taken in the reflection of my Urban Decay NAKED palette, If anyone on your list loves makeup any of the 3 NAKED palettes will be a hit!
I've been eyeing the NAKED3 since it came out and I might just have to go for it!

I hope this helped someone out who was still trying to make those last minute decisions! 
And while all of these things are fun and pretty to play with, the most important part of Valentine's day is letting your sweetheart and the people around you know how much you love and care for them! 
Writing a sweet love letter from the heart is probably one of the best gift ideas EVER!!!
The Beatles said it better than I ever could!
"I don't care too much for money cause money can't buy me love"
Different people have different love languages and that is okay, as long as a couple understands each other's language!

Also a word to the single people, go out or stay in with some of your single friends!
DON'T post on facebook or any other social media site how lonely you will forever be and how it's "Single awareness day" I love you but it's not healthy to dwell on the negative!
If you don't have any single friends or you are a lone wolf to begin with take yourself out on a date!
If you're not into crowds wear your cutest pj's and watch your favorite movie/show marathon with your favorite two people in the world Ben&Jerry!
Some might think that's depressing but the crazy cat lady side of me thinks that sounds like a merry little time!
(It's funny that I say side of me like the other "normal" side exists) 
My point is you can choose to be happy or depressed, I've been single most of my life but I still love love.
I'm glad that we have a day celebrating butterflies in our stomaches, stars in our eyes and kisses that make the world stand still!
And if that's too cheesy for you remember that valentine candy goes on sale the next day...
Yep, I went there!

Year of the Horse

Surprise, surprise I'm wearing that horse sweater, AGAIN! 
This time I wore it to church with a taupe pencil skirt from the ever fruitful forever 21.
My only qualms are that I wish it were more tapered at the bottom and a little bit longer.
I am going to go ahead and apologize for the hair ties on my wrist but seriously, when you have as much hair as I do you can't be without one!!!
(Or in my case two)
So Random facts for the night, I'm wearing horses on my sweater, horses are my favorite animal I was born in the year of the horse, the handsome man was born in the year of the horse and this year is the year of the wooden horse!
...That's a lot of horses!!!

I hope everyone is having a great Sunday!!!

 Here is a look at the photo shoot that I had the pleasure of doing with my friend Brenna!
She is a hair dresser and has her own little business on the side where she does hair, makeup and photography.
This day she got to sit back and relax in front of the lens and by relax I mean it was freezing and she got to run around like it was practically spring!
BrennaBeauty is the name of her business and the photos we took were for her website that will be up soon!
The hair and makeup were done by Brenna herself and the styling of the outfits was done by both Brenna and I!
 Of course I can't forget to mention her costar!
Diesel had to sneak into a few since he can't resist a photo op! 
BrennaBeauty < Click the link to visit Brenna's Facebook page and find out when her website will be up and running!
For now you can like the page and stay up to date, her contact info and prices are listed there!

 Colton and Chase climbed into this oak tree and tied the water hose with a sprinkler head on it the night before I took most of these pictures! 
This is probably pretty obvious since this is drastically more frozen the all of the other frosted pictures!

While I was freezing my boots off I took these little gems to document the freezing temperatures that rarely happen in the state of Florida!
And to show the difference the last picture was one I took on location of a photo shoot only a couple of days later!
I love this little patch of the world I call home.
