Friday Favorite: MOD Straps – Gift for Camera Owners or Bloggers!

Christmas is almost here! If you’re a last minute shopper and still searching for something to give the camera owners on your list – you have to check out MOD Straps. They offer stylish and functional camera accessories. Not only is this scarf super pretty but also a lot more comfortable than the strap that came with it.

I love that simply adding this scarf to my camera was an easy way to personalize it. I take my camera everywhere and have gotten so many compliments already. Since I truly take it everywhere, I needed something that was comfortable for on my neck but also able to hold the weight of my camera.

This camera scarf definitely passed the test! So if you’re thinking about getting one, hurry so that you can get it in time for Christmas. If you want to buy this exact camera scarf, keep scrolling, I’ve linked it below. 😉

Fall Family Photos in Mauve Lace Accent Top by Pink Blush

Hello! Today I’m talking about family photos and this gorgeous lace accent top from Pink Blush. I absolutely love the lace detail on this top and thought it would be perfect for the family photo session I had been planning for weeks. This top is available in other colors including the most gorgeous red, which I think would be perfect for a holiday party.

What I also like about this top that is the way it fits – like tunic. It’s really a maternity top but you can see how I styled it, just imagine how flattering it would also be on a mama-to-be.

About our family photos… This is one of those things that I have a love/hate relationship with. I love the idea of getting new family photos, but getting ready for them and getting the family on the same page can be equally stressful. Having planned this shoot weeks in advanced did take out some of the stress out of it; along with the fact that it was DIY session. I would have been more stressed if I had to worry about my girls’ behavior in front of a professional photographer. 🙂

We picked out outfits, a location, brought my camera and tripod and ta-da – we have family photos. I love denim, so my husband and girls are wearing theirs, I thought my top was a good contrast, especially with the hints of pink on my littlest’s dress. Not that you can see it very well on these photos but it’s there, I promise.

Now, If you had not heard of Pink Blush, you’re missing out. They have the most gorgeous garments for women – pregnant or not. They also have a good selection of shoes and other accessories; take a peek at their website.

Five Ways to Add Personality to your Apartment – without Breaking the Bank

Getting a new apartment is an exciting time. I remember the very first time I got my first apartment without my family or roommates. It was so exciting! All throughout college, I had lived with roommates and for the most part didn’t do much decorating because it was a shared space. So when I was getting my first apartment alone, I couldn’t wait to start planning how I would make it my own.

That being said I was also a new college grad with limited funds. I knew I wanted to add my personality to the place but I also knew that I needed to do so on a budget. Here are five smart ways to add personality to your new apartment without breaking the bank.

Make Your Own Art

I didn’t initially plan to make my art. I went to a few places, like Ross and Marshalls, to look for art. Store after store I just couldn’t find anything I wanted to look at every day. I went to a local discount arts and crafts store to see what they had in stock.

Strong Nails by Perfect Formula’s Pink Gel Coat

Happy Friday!! What do you have planned for the weekend? Hopefully it’s something fun. 😉 Before the week comes to an end, I wanted to share another Friday Favorite with you. This week, we’re talking nails.

I’ll let you in on a little secret, I’m not like most women who get regular mani and pedis. One reason is that as a mom, my manicures hardly ever last. Another reason is that the girls and I truly enjoy painting our nails together at home.

This means that while I may not use color, I still use clear polish. I have been using several cheap brands which didn’t offer much than a clear coat. That was until I came across Perfect Formula’s Pink Gel Coat. I have been using it for about a month now and I have to say that I am very happy and it’s amazing on my nails.

Distressed High Waisted Shorts & Our Galveston Beach Adventure

Houston = Home! For six years now and I love it here! Oh the city life – though I really live in the suburbs. 😉 But it’s nice to have a major city close by, and even better to have a beach near by. I will admit that while Galveston Beach is not the most sought after beach location and its water may not be crystal clear. I absolutely love taking a trip our there. Just breathing in that ocean air brings back so many good memories.
