Inspiration // New Year's Resolution Challenge

On the 1st of January 2014 I made a new year's resolution unlike any other. I wasn't planning on losing weight or exercising more, or any of the typical new year's resolutions. My goal for 2014 was to learn to do everything I've wanted to learn to do in the past but have always been too lazy or busy for.

DIY // Carnivorous Terrariums

Something different

When I took my puppy for a walk this afternoon I took my camera along because it's a special time of year. It's a bit cooler outside and a bit darker in the mornings, but mostly it's the colours that are different. Autumn is in the air and there's yellow, orange and red everywhere. If there are any future brides reading this, why not consider a May wedding? From an aesthetic point of view the light will be beautiful, there colours will be amazing and you'll get to wear a fur stole like a 1920s movie star!
