Photo of the Day: Everyone loves getting packages, right? Especially when they’re from the Lilly Pulitzer semi annual sale! I got these adorable buttercup shorts for $34. Look at me go, the deal queen!

Oh, hey, about that…


Sorry for the neglect, readers! I’m part of a sorority and we are currently in the throes of formal recruitment.

We host 14 rush parties on Friday, and I am super excited and busier than God right now.

Recruitment ends on August 15, and I will be returning to this blog then, of course! So sit tight, pull up the archives, and wait patiently for my eventual return.


Photo of the Day: Summer sun, sweat, and chlorine. Pool day with my sisters!

(And let’s all say a little prayer for the state of BB’s sunburn…that poor ginger girl.)

Painting with Light

More after the jump.

I accomplished this feat— painting with light— with 8 sparklers and my trusty DSLR. I used my tripod because I wanted to minimize movement to try and get really clear photos. This was almost impossible, but I want to try it again, tweaking my settings to try and achieve super clear pictures. firework, sparkler, painting with light, light art, photography

Photo of the Day: Friends at my sorority’s International Reunion Day. Can we talk about how beautiful the lighting + my new 50mm f/1.8 lens makes everyone look?!
