Behind the Scenes of My Free People Photoshoot!!

 Greetings!
This past Wednesday, I experienced one of the best events of my life. (Aside from seeing The Avett Brothers live) I was asked by members of Free People and FPme to model for their blog and website!! At first, to be honest I didn't think it was real. Too good to be true! Alas, after a few back and fourth emails with the leader of this program, I knew that I couldn't pass up such an opportunity.

The photos from the event are going to be sent to me in around a week so they said, the video- one to two weeks. That is really actually very quick, and I cannot wait to share!! Until then, I thought I would share some of the photos I took on my camera, a little behind the scenes tour of the day :)
 When I first arrived they told me to search the store for pieces to create two complete outfits for the shoot. It was a dream. How many times have you been window shopping and said, "Ugh I wish I could just have it all, I want all of my outfits to be (insert brand here)" Yeah well, that's pretty much what became my reality for one amazing day. However, the dream sadly ended when I had to give it all back... but! They did let me keep one sweater and I am in love! 

After choosing our outfits, we piled on the bus where we headed to Graves Mountain for the shoot! 
On the bus, we bonded and got to know each other. There were about fifteen of us, most bloggers of Virginia. I was the youngest one there by a long shot, ten or so years at least... But none of that mattered, we all had a fabulous time together, I feel like I've made some great friends. The leaders of the trip all worked at the FP HQ in Philly, super nice and extremely fun ladies. They said that if I were ever interested in a possible internship to contact them because they'd totally spread the word for me. Hello connections!!
 We started off the adventure with horseback riding.....
 and apple picking...
 and much...
 much...
 more.
I am waiting on the edge of my seat to see the photos and video,
I know you probably are too.... I will share them as soon as I get them!
Have a great night!

Today I propose to do absolutely nothing but drink hot chocolate and watch movies. Or so I wish... my todo list for today is really actually rather long... however, a little long weekend magic can always help me put those things off... 

Today, with the chill and rain, I am dreaming of winter fashion, deep red and burgundy brown tones, leopard print, bows and leather will be in my closet this season. What's in your closet?

For the Love of Stumbling Upon Odd Things

 When last in Pennsylvania, after our breakfast, walking around the small city of Harrisburg, we stumbled across an event called "WoofStock"it was full of weird dogs and even weirrderrr people...... We've all heard of the classic, "Crazy Cat Lady" but just you wait... Crazy Dog Ladies are even better... There were I want to say over maybe 1,000 people here, I kid you not, it was so so packed.
But who doesn't love a whole lot of love from our best friends? 
plus... PUGS!

Snapshots from PSU

 Last, Last weekend, My dad and I drove up to Pennsylvania to visit Saunders!! I had such a great time and cannot wait to go back! Here are some random shots from the weekend.
I didn't even realize how much I was going to miss Saunders until he left, I enjoy being an only child don't get me wrong, but I really really miss him. I feel like we have grown a bit closer since he's been away which is also very nice. I love him so so dearly and cannot wait to see him again sometime soon.
Saunders took us to a game and he snuck me into the student section!! (o.0)
It was SO MUCH FUN! I am not a huge fan of watching sports, let alone football... however the energy in the student section was absolute party town, we had a great time!! I learned so many cheers and fit right in (at least I hope I did..)
The photo above is a photo my dad took of the student section, Saunders and I are somewhere in the midright.
yoooo! I drove home! Woohoo!! :)
Do you have any fun trips planned anytime soon?

Words With Sunday + Chapter 29

 Happy Sunday! Yes, It is true, I am still alive... although the rumors of my disappearance in the blogosphere were spreading rapidly, they were all lies. I am still here friends. It has been what, two weeks since my last blogpost? Oh me oh my, my apologies, sincerely. 

Any who, today Pops and I went to a new (for us at least) spot in Cary Town called Water Coastal Kitchen. I thought it was pretty good! I got classic blueberry pancakes, although I do wish there were more blues in there, they were still pretty good. Papa got the fried green tomato eggs benedict. He said it was alright, but he and I agreed to go back because although not spectacular, we enjoyed it, and will probably return for dinner.
 lol laughing
I have some big very exciting plans this week and I just CANNOT wait to share with you! 
What about you.. any plans? Comment!!
