Travel Bag: Trip of a lifetime

Thursday, October 25, 2012

Lately I have been day dreaming about our plans to go to Australia next year. We are hoping to make the trip out there with my husband's family next November (2013), and plan on making it our 'last big trip before babies'. We have a few stops in mind on the way there and back, and I can't help but think about what I would wear while travelling to some of the most magnificent places in the world. (Sad but true)

So I've put a little packing list together of what I would bring on this trip of a lifetime.

First stop - New Delhi, India

One thing that is not lacking in India is colour! I plan on wearing colourful loose tunics, modest shorts, and long flowing skirts. I always want to be mindful of the culture that I am jumping into and would not want to wear something that may be offensive to their religion or cultural standards. One thing to bring or purchase would be a shawl to wear over your head if you plan on visiting religious sanctuaries. We will be doing lots of walking, so a good pair of shoes if also very important.

Main Stay - Victoria & Brisbane, Australia
((1)) ((2)) ((3))

When staying in Australia, our main focus is family time. We are attending a wedding for my husband's cousin and visiting with family from around the world. We'll be taking day trips, attending wedding functions, and spending a few nights on the town. I want to take versatile clothing that can bring be through from day - night and also lots of layers since it may be temperamental weather at that time of year.

Last Stop - (undecided) Italy

One of the places that is at the top of my list to see is Italy. We haven't quite decided if we will be able to make a stop on the way home yet, but I am really hoping we can make it to Italy. I mean wouldn't that just be the cherry on top of an already amazing trip?! I dream of walking the streets with fancy Italian women in black heels and the perfect trench coat. Sitting back and enjoying the scenery of Venice on a gondola with a singing man in a tophat! A girl can dream right?

Choices

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

We have to make choices every day. Some BIG and life altering, some small and insignificant. Today, I have choices.

I am making a choice to enjoy life, to live life, to be filled with joy.
To give thanks in every circumstance, even if I don't understand it.
I am making the choice to get up every morning and be happy.
To acknowledge Him in all of my ways.
To be real, To feel complete, To live for Him.

Weekend project

Monday, October 22, 2012

This weekend I had my first styled engagement shoot for my new business - Vantage Events. The breeze was cool but the sun was shining and everything turned out great. I thought I would just give you a little sneak peak at what I was up and some of the beautiful work we put together.

Shopping Therapy

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

So as you may have noticed, I have been M.I.A. for the past week, and in the meantime, I have been doing some online shopping. I had all of my widsom teeth taken out last week and have been slowly recovering and getting back into a normal routine. I didn't expect to feel so tired and out of it, but I was still coherent enough to do some online shopping. I usually don't like to buy things without trying them on or seeing and feeling them in person, but since I didn't leave the house for 5 days straight, I thought I would give it a try.

I got 3 tops from Forever 21, and am hoping to update my fall wardrobe with some more professional but fun blouses. I wanted to get tops that I can wear for any type of occasion, not just distinct "work" "play".


Here's some inspiration looks that I found to get some ideas for styling them. Hope to share them soon.

Style Crush: Sabrina Meijer

Tuesday, October 2, 2012

For fall I have been going more the route of mixing basics and minimal colour. Sometimes it's nice to play around with neutrals and create a modest look that still makes you feel confident. Sabrina Meijer is the perfect inspiration and has the minimalistic look down to a science.

Blogger date in Liberty Village

Monday, October 1, 2012

This weekend I hung out with a friend of mine, (and fellow blogger) Danni. We had so much fun walking around Liberty Village, shopping and of course making a pit stop for some outfit pics. This mural wall is incredible and the industrial buildings in the area were the perfect backdrop to a great day.
