Fall Photoshoot!

While fall is sadly coming to an end, I thought it would be a great idea for Joey and I to get some professional photos taken (not ones where we are at our fake wedding) since our lives have changed so much since our college days and continuing so!

So I called up my very talented sister, Katie, of Katie Powers Photography to capture a few shots of us while we were still in the prettiest season of them all!

A Quarter Century of Me!!!

So it’s official, I’m 25! A quarter of a century! And yet I still look like I’m 14….. I am super excited for a new year to take on my goals and knock them out of the park! 24 was an all-over-the-place kind of year for me. I quit my first big girl job, left Victoria’s Secret after more than 6 years, started a new career working for Ulta Beauty, and so much more!

I’m looking forward to a year filled with hard work in pushing myself the be the best I can be, having a more positive outlook on life in each situation, and forcing myself out of my comfort zone! Now is definitely the time for it! I also really want to dedicate myself to this space so much more as well! It’s been a blast interacting with y’all and seeing how much some of my posts inspire you and I can’t wait to put out more and with the holidays coming up, I have so many ideas to share!

Thank you so much to my family, friends, and everyone who has supported me in the last year and sent birthday wishes! It made my day that much more special and I can’t even explain how much I appreciate all of you!

A Frozen Virginia!

While it’s nowhere near the amount we got last year, we finally got our snow storm of the year here in Virginia! I’ve been off from work the past 4 days and still have 2 more to go + I’m pretty sure I’m losing my mind! My tiny little bug won’t get me far in these conditions which is really pushing me to go ahead and buy that jeep I’ve been meaning to get around to!

Anyway, I decided to venture out into my backyard and take some fun picks like I do every year! Everything was completely frozen over just like a particular Disney favorite of mine!

Take Me Downtown!

I’m so excited! I’m lucky enough to have a photographer for a sister who just happens to love to do random photoshoots with me! Last month she wanted to take a few in Downtown Norfolk!  I’m so excited, because I finally got a few back and I love them!  It’s so fun to see how her style has changed over the past 6 years!  You all should definitely check her out at Katie Powers Photography!

All You Need Is Love!

So sorry for the lack of posts! With the huge job change (the last minute quitting of my main job of event planning and looking for a new one) I’ve been very busy!  But I have some great things to come so stay tuned!  Today while taking a moment to clean out my car in an attempt to try and organize my life a little, these tiny hearts of joy fell out and brightened up my day!  It’s amazing how something so simple can turn your entire outlook around!  Feeling inspired and ready to take on what ever comes my way!

A Big Golden Day!

With the colder days approaching, there is nothing like warming up your big day than with the color gold.  It is glamourous, chic, and dazzling! Whether you choose to go with yellow gold or a more rose gold route (my favorite) it is sure to make a statement that your guests won’t be able to forget! What I love about this trend….. gold, sequined table linens! The texture is amazing and the sparkle will just pick up beautifully in your  photos! LOVE!

Lake Photography!

Last month, Joey + I (okay really just me) decided to take some official photos together so that we could have some to display.  The majority of our photos are taken at parties, out on the town, or selfless and those really are not frame worthy!  We had our friend in Charlottesville, Va who just started up her photography business take the photos and I love them!  She had taken our photos previously to build her portfolio but had to have her take more once she found her style! Hopefully you all like them!  We had them taken at Chris Greene Lake and despite the rainy day, it was so much fun!
