Hail Mary

I recently discovered the artist Adrienne Slane. Slane combines the ideas of the beauty and interconnectivity of nature along with religious symbolism as well. She uses vintage images found in a number of places to create intricate colorful collages. Love everything about it.

After rejoining over the break, Sarah and I have decided to embark on a video journey. We are thinking of throwing a little something together for you all (get excited!). With that in mind, I decided dig up my camera and give it another go. Here are a few of my shots from around the house. Enjoy!ImageImageImage

In the last photo, I decided to take a few shots of my Love Does bookmark. Today while in the waiting room at a doctor’s appointment, I got the chance to read a few chapters. I realized that since making the bookmark I only glance at the verse, but never really reread it or process it. It was nice to take a moment like that. I hope you enjoy nibbling on that fodder for thought.

Etsy Wandering (finals procrastinating)

I was looking around Etsy in my abundantly free time, considering I have a final tomorrow (i also have painted my nails and created a new playlist on spotify, lets just say when I want to put off doing something I CAN). Anyway I found some really cool things while I was looking. All are vintage and would be great additions to a winter wardrobe, mostly unnecessary, (like this blog post (lol no one reads our blog)) but still so fun.

Best Jacket… Ever

Barbour coats have a long tradition of great quality as well as looking effortlessly pulled together in a classic cool way. My favorite and the one I have been wearing for the past few years in the Utility Polarquilt jacket.

Not only are you getting a great jacket with a Barbour coat, you are also n0w a proud owner of a coat that is also a favorite of Kate Middleton (basically the whole royal family also), Alexa Chung, Olivia Palermo, Ashley Olsen, Princess Diana etc. basically almost every classically cool celebrity you can think of. A great Christmas gift, and one you will be able to use for a lifetime!
