A Bug in the Flowers

It's been such a while since I've been in the blogging block. My last outfit post, if you could really count it as a significant one, was a fluke in which I was able to find a photo of Coachella that actually had an outfit on it. (One outfit out of a three day fest?! Horrible horrible me!) About two weeks ago, I got together with an old high school friend of mine for a nice little Closetbug photoshoot, featuring yours truly as well as some clothes I plan on selling off some time soon.

It was situated in the Long Beach Nature Center, which was so much more than what I had expected. Everything was so lovely and fresh, even if we were stuck on a trail and weren't really allowed to wander all that much. It was hilarious to jam some random music while quickly and discreetly changing in between branches and bushes.

Definitely something I plan on doing again. I also received a new camera just yesterday, so that should be amazing to play around with. It's a Sony Cybershot H55, which is a more advanced point and shoot camera. I'm so thrilled to try it out, and I honestly feel like this calls for another photoshoot of some sort.

Here's hoping for a refreshed new blogging career!

Spring Dreaming

It's been forever since I've updated and needless to say I've been going through withdrawls from the lack of blogging. (What happens? Life simply creeps up on me and surprises me with multiple activities!) Things have been going well, although with my camera on the fritz since Coachella weekend it's been difficult to take photos of my spring wardrobe. However despite those setbacks, I've got a pleasant surprise for my blog and my readers in an upcoming blogpost that I hope you all will enjoy.

Until then, I present to you a "spring dreaming" feature.

A DIY tutorial on the Martha Stewart site on how to make these lovely hanging paper flowers from paper bags. Given the right colors and cut, I can imagine a real shower of gorgeous flowers dangling from the ceiling of my room.

I hope you all are doing well. ♥
