The fear of being truly you

Doing your own engagement photos

     Ian and I recently did our engagement photos, and I decided it would be fun to do it ourselves vs a professional photographer. I know hiring someone would have probably yielded better quality photos but we both are very happy with the photos we got. Reasons I did this: 1. Engagement sessions are usually a good way to choose a wedding photographer and kind … Read More Doing your own engagement photos

Island girl

Today is my last full day in paradise AKA Kauai….. I want to cry just thinking about going back to Washington..dull and cold PNW, but all good things do come to an end. My favorite things to do in Kauai were definitely sunrise/sunset watching, people watching on the beach/conversations with strangers(everyone here is so happy…maybe its all the Vit D ha-ha) and hiking because … Read More Island girl

Am not flattered

It seems like spring took a break from us for a while, the weather is back to its old dull state with sprinkles here and there, but am not complaining because I have barely had time to be outdoors anyway. I decided to kill the silence on this blog by taking photos of what I wore on wednesday, nothing too exciting. I have a … Read More Am not flattered

Mailbox peak hike/Motivational monday

so yesterday I made my way up the mountains and hiked the mailbox peak trail for the second time. I hadn’t checked updates on the trail to know what it looked like at this time of year, so it was kind of an impulsive move. The trail looked fine at the bottom (better than in winter), the old trees blocking the hike (I had to … Read More Mailbox peak hike/Motivational monday

Blueberry Dutch Baby

German pancakes have become one of my favorite breakfast meals. The first time I ever heard of a dutch baby was at a b&b in camino island, where this old lady made us breakfast using an old recipe she had kept throughout the years, and I chose the blueberry dutch baby which was to die for!…literally… haha, and when I got home, I couldnt … Read More Blueberry Dutch Baby

 For visual readers (lol…jokes), the above are recent pictures taken with my DSLR….I am enjoying photography in spring because everything is so alive. The ferry is in a small cute historic neighborhood close to where I live and hopefully in future I’ll share more photos, the picture of me standing is me practicing focus points and manual shooting…I get so thrilled when I … Read More Time

Let’s … Read More MIA

Sister style

So the sister finally re-surfaced!! Yay, and she put together this outfit. Every item was bought in various local (kenya) stores and flee market.   After seeing my sister’s outfit, I warned her I would be rocking same colored pieces soon because  my most recent buys were a taupe midi skirt and tan brogues…..great minds huh? On a different note, I was talking to … Read More Sister style

New beginnings

I think spring came early in the pnw, too bad the “east-coasters” are getting hit hard by blizzards. Flowers are blossoming everywhere here, the sunny days are getting longer… I hope it stays this way for a while but who knows, the pnw weather has been known to play tricks on us. Anyhow, I bought this dress for my graduation last year and never … Read More New beginnings
