Valentine's Day Preview

For that guitar player you have been crushing on....
 It is that time of year again :)
Time for the lovebirds to pair off,
for crushes to send secret love notes,
to fall even more in love,
and give gifts to that special someone.

For those who admire someone from afar,
go out on a limb this Valentine's Day!
Leave that someone a little note.
And spend the night watching chick flicks.
Don't forget the chocolate and your best friend.
Here is some cute Valentine's things for inspiration or gift ideas. 
Expect more Valentine posts (including baking) before February 14th!
V-day will be my mom and step dad's 12 Anniversary :) Maybe they will let me do a photo shoot :)

 These little cards are too CUTE! You can buy these at kraze4paper's etsy shop or try and make your own. All this craft needs are googly eyes, a little monster sketch, cardboard, glue, cut out hearts, and a little motivation. :)

For a more pricy gift for that special someone ($45), you can get these personalized cufflinks.
This is just one of the many personalized etsy cufflinks. There are plenty in a more reasonable price range if this is too much for you. ***In my next post I will show you the personalized gift I got for my boyfriend for our 1 year anniversary :)

Well it is 11:51pm here right now, so i better be off! I have to be up at 5:50am for a student council meeting. I have tons more links to add here. Expect another V-day post by Friday :D

Making My inspiration.


I have always adored the bright couple photos photographs I see on a lot of the blogs I follow. So this passed week after submitting 7 college applications, I decided to go out with my boyfriend to go take photographs in the nearby canyon. He was amazing and brought over a few outfits for me to choose from and looked snazzy as always. I still can't believe how lucky I am to have him.

Normally I fantasize over others photographs and was planning on putting other photographers inspiring shots on the blog this week, but this time I decided I was going to go out and take the pictures myself. Take photos that I would want to put on my blog and add to my inspiration folder. Hopefully this is the beginning of a year full of "go getting" and doing, rather than just watching with admiration. <3
