suit and glasses- Forever 21

Our first few days here at the beach were so incredibly gloomy, hella overcast, and devilishly cold for August. However, I was able to get some cool photos out of it that's for sure! Hope you dig these eery, angsty beach pics as much as I do! xo, O

Good morning everyone! Happy Friday :)

This week I've been at the beach with my family in Nags Head, North Carolina. The first part of the week, I'll admit, was quite stormy and honestly just gross, super cold and very very wet. Not too fun for the beach. BUT! Yesterday the sun came out and we had our first full on summer beach day! It was terrific.

We spent all day by the water and in the sand, playing games like bocci and corn hole, swimming and catching rays, it was the perfect day :) I thought it was about time I shared with you guys some of my photos! I've been taking a lot of video, so that's soon to come as well! Read more to view the photos! xo, O

Ah Yes... the three most essential Fs in life, Flowers, Friends and Food. Honestly though, all I need in life if good company, good food, and nature.

Hey hey, happy Saturday (late Saturday, early Sunday) I hope y'all had a fabulous week, and an even better weekend!! This week was busy, busy, BUSY for me! Full with tiring shifts, and homework, yet also full of adventures with friends new and old!
This is somewhat of a Richmond Spotlight, celebrating both the ever so amazing Elizabeth, and my neighborhood juice bar, North End Juice Co. They specialize in doing juices, and various types of bowls. Naturally, Elizabeth and I got smoothie bowls, which were fruity and fantastic! And right around the corner was this beautiful floral mural, which totally set the tone for the sunshine-y day we had together! Elizabeth is such a great friend, I love how even though we haven't seen each other in a while we can pick up right where we left off :)

My goal for you this week is to reconnect with an old friend, and find a few simple things that make you happy in your life. xo, O

North End Juice Co. is located on 718 N. Cleveland St. Richmond, VA 23220
open Monday-Friday 7:30am to 4:30pm and Saturday and Sunday 8am to 4:30pm

Good Morning everyone! It's already Friday, this week has flown by, and don't even get my started on summer flying by..... But! I'm so happy I was able to capture this moment yesterday. I've wanted to take photos in a milk bath for a really long time, I'm sure you've seen photos like this before. It was a lot of fun experimenting with different dyes, flowers, milk, etc. I also want to start releasing more thought out photoshoots and content here on my blog. So I'm glad I could kick that off with this!! Anyway, today is so so busy as always, so I'm signing off here.. love you guys!! xo, O

Happy Tuesday! I'll be honest I love Tuesday, almost as much as I love Monday! In the summer everyday is the weekend, where Monday means a new week, and Friday just means time is flying by and this week is over. Therefor, I like Tuesdays because it's still early in the week, also I'm not working sooo hehehee..... BUT! Regardless, Tuesdays are always great because that means Ten Things Tuesday, so let's get into that...

1. Starting off with a new spotlight blogger! I discovered Amber's blog though the Beehive Babes insta, and she is SOO COOL! I love all of her outfits, her style is amazing, and her photos are always fantastic. Girl knows what's up in the blogging world.
2. TOTALLY not getting married anytime soon, but still looking at wedding dresses. How can I not?They're all amazing. Especially this one. While I'm not super traditional, I'm a white dress kind of gal, but stilllll how beautiful is this dress?!
3. My good friend from school Bri has a fashion blog, Style Me Bri, that actually just turned one!! Go check it out and help her celebrate by givin it a follow :)

4. Ally actually shared this one with me. It's a bathroom reno and I'm in LOVE! Add a few more pops of color and I'd move in in an instant. Is it weird to buy a house just for the bathroom? Probably. Thanks Ally :)
5. If I could afford to be and had the room I would 100% be a crazy plant lady. I'm a proud owner of a few cacti and succulents, but I dream of the day when I can come home to this many big plant babies. This post gives some tips on caring for them.

6. If you know me you probably know I love NPR. I'm not a huge radio gal, so typically when I'm driving I'll be listening to it. Gotta love me some Dan Roberts and Melissa Block, am I right or am I right...??? SO naturally I binge watch Tiny Desk Concerts, so when I heard Violents did one I was all over it. Check it out!
7. Lana's. New. Album. enough said? enough said.

8. I love a good flower crown, but making a real one can be tough, and buying a real one can be expensive... I love this DIY paper flower crown from The House That Lars Built.
9. I don't know why, but lately I've been craving chocolate lava cakes. I'm doing my best not to order one from Domino's, don't hate y'all they are SO good, but it's hard. In the meantime before I cave and just buy one, here is a recipe if you aren't lazy like me and actually want to make one!
10. Last but not least, as you know it's almost back to school season, so of COURSE it's about time to think about school supplies, or if you're not in school, just life supplies!! I had a agenda this past year and am LOVING their newest designs, thinking about getting this one for myself for this year. 

And that's a wrap!! I hope you guys like these things just as much as I do! Have a happy, wonderful, beautiful week :) xo, O


OKAY! So I know it's not Sunday, I think I'm just going to try to post a video like once a week, not every Sunday, just once a week. SO YEAH THERE'S THAT! Okay I love you guys, enjoy.

Hello Everyone! Happy Monday, I hope your week is off to a great start! Mine sure is, today was a blast. It started out with breakfast at Urban Farmhouse with Nate, then we went back to his new apartment to work on decorating his room, which I think really looks great! We added some plants, hung some paintings, and put in a new dresser, it's coming together for sure! After that we went to get some lunch, and then some gelato at a cute little spot in walking distance to Nate's place. He seriously lives in the coolest neighborhood.

Once we finished up there I got ready around golden hour for this photoshoot. I really, really like how these photos turned out, look at Nate go, what a lil photog he's become. Anyway, today was great. How was your day?

I'll be back tomorrow with another post! I'm looking to post more often, as y'all know I tried, and surprised my self with how well I did, to post everyday, and I'm wanting to get back into that. Soooo we'll see. I'm only sort of busy, but I think I can manage... Until then! xo, O
