Miss Thessa

So of late I find myself shooting more and more headshots - LA certainly is the right place for it. This little darling certainly knows how to light up a camera. Now presenting, Miss Thessa.

{Fashion} Fridays

Brrr...winter is definitely sneaking in, even here in bright and sunny LA. Makes me long for warm wraps, chunky scarves, and days spent in bed with a mug of hot chocolate.

However, work must be done! And this is my kind of work - finding my favourite new items and stores on the never-ending wonder that is Etsy! Here is my featured store for this week: Ozetta.

This creative crafts-lady hails from Oklahoma, where, inspired the tireless work of her grandmother, she runs this online store, and raises her two children. The pieces she creates are just incredible, and I hope to add a few to my wardrobe as the days run shorter and the temps grow cooler.

A Vow

Today I vow, to spend less time on facebook, far fewer minutes on instagram, and a much larger moment reading books and books and books.

The Latest Greatest

Five of my favourite new blog finds:

1. Local Milk Blog

A food blogger, who's photographs look good enough to eat. She tells beautiful stories, and shares even better recipes. Her blog captures Tennessee living down to a T.

2. Domino's

Helena's Moscow fashion and photographs make me want to pack a suitcase full of coats and travel to Russia for the holidays, which is something I never thought I'd want to do. Now that's enticement for you.

3. Wit + Delight

This perfectly-charcoal-toned-Pinterest-style blog makes me want to live my life in hues of grey.

4. Sweet Thing Blog

This lady knows how to take a good photograph. And for me, that's always a win. Plus, her cute quirky style keeps me clicking back for more. Joyous!

5. sfgirlbybay

This San Francisco girl certainly knows how to rock her bohemian style, and has a deliciously large amount of posts on interiors, which I LOVE. What a win.

Happy clicking!

My latest favourite is this week's featured item. I've been wearing it all weekend, completely loathe to take it off at the end of the day (though it even goes well with pyjamas, hehe!)

This necklace is handcrafted and features a sturdy brass ring, suspended on a length of navy blue cord. The tassels off the bottom of the brass ring create a complementary fringe affect.
This item will soon be available for sale on my Etsy online store.

Looking Forward

I have a feeling that this is going to be a fun one! If you're a crafter, or are just looking to buy some beautiful hand crafted holiday gifts, keep November 3rd free!

More details to follow, as I have them xx

Booking Out

  • It was at a very young age that I can remember my mom reading me novels. The big thick ones, like Heidi and Little Women, and Little House The Prairie. I remember being completely transported to far away worlds. It was a delight.

    It didn't take long for me to start devouring these books on my own - after all, I'd become quite the speed reader, and managed to eat up chapters much faster than my mother could read them aloud.

    So when I stumbled across these beautiful book covers, illustrated and art directed by David Pearson, I was once again transported.

    Can you imagine having a whole library full of these beautiful covers?

{Wistful} Wednesdays

I have often posted about my love of nature, and of those moments when nature overruns the things we humans have created, turning them back into natural habitats, and creeping crevices of animal homes.

Finnish photographer Kai Fagerström found the perfect example of just this exact thing in the cottages near his summer house, and captured these moments so beautifully.
