    Lallybroch || Outlander Inspired Fashion

    outlander inspired fashion This year I have hopes to produce several book- or fairytale- themed Lookbooks on my YouTube channel. I have a great love for creating Lookbook videos, and obviously also adore books, so merging the two is one of my great goals this year. While I have yet to finish reading Outlander in its entirety (and to be honest, I’ve only just started the novels), I have watched all of the show and love it. Ireland may always hold the top spot in my heart, but Scotland has been a close second for a long time. Learning some of its history through the show and seeing the grand landscapes…

    Becoming Miss Holmes | Short Film Behind the Scenes

    Happy Wednesday! I’m excited to share these two videos with you, and to incorporate my YouTube videos into my posts more often! Today, of course, I’m sharing the behind-the-scenes of filming our short, Miss Holmes, and the teaser! I’m SO excited about this project. Filmmaking is something I love, but it’s my husband’s passion especially and we both kind of hope to use Miss Holmes to help push him into his desired career field. We are putting everything we have into this little film! I hope you enjoy the teaser and behind-the-scenes! I will of course have a few more BTS videos before we finally premier the film.

    curating a breastfeeding-friendly wardrobe  Though I took a break from regular posting on social media, my time on “break” was actually spent quite productively creating, and it was the best break I’ve had in quite a long while. Lately I had been feeling like I only ever got dressed for social media. For a blog post, a video, an Instagram post, what have you. I put on clothes because… I had to. So, I decided to utilize my little social media break to fall in love with clothes again. Having three babies has changed my body quite a lot — from the shape to pounds gained to silhouettes I like…

    Taking a Break || Life Update

    I didn’t post anything here on my blog, but if you follow me on Instagram you’ll have seen that right before Christmas I decided to take a two week social media break to refresh myself and evaluate what I post and why I post. At the time I’ve started writing this I’ve only been on my little social media break for two days (at the time of posting, it’s been a week). And I already  miss posting. I have mentioned before here that I often stop and evaluate my presence and purpose on social media and how it affects my own life and the life of my family. When I…

    Poinsettias for Christmas || Feat Dolly and Dotty and The Retro Flamingo

    A little while ago, The Retro Flamingo flower crowns contacted me to ask if she could send me crowns for myself and my daughters. She was then kind enough to also include lapel pins for my husband and Asa. It was the perfect little push to get new family photos with Irene, who is now old enough to actually interact with the camera. Our last photos were only this summer, but she was so little it was a bit difficult to get clear pictures of her face! And, since they’re Poinsettia flowers, our family photos are perfectly Christmassy for (my always late) holiday cards!
