    My Favorite Things

    favorite things giveaway

    1. Scarf
    I’m slightly obsessed with scarves. My friend, Trisha, and I were talking the other day about how we feel naked without a scarf to add to our outfit. Seriously, scarves are fantastic! Especially as a mama of a little grabby toddler she can pull and chew on my scarf and I don’t have to worry about her breaking it. I may actually have more scarves than shoes…that are that fantastic!

    2. The Photographer’s Mind
    Besides being full of stunning images, there is so much wonderful information in book. I really like how he discusses certain elements of you can use in your image to help your viewer feel a certain way. He also covers post processing.

    3. Metallic Pearls Earrings
    Talk about the perfect earrings that will go with EVERYTHING. Gold or silver these are the earrings for you. Plus what is amazing about Noonday Collection jewelry is that it is made by artisans who create the pieces for Noonday Collection and receive a living wage for their products.

    4. Scattered Steps Necklace
    Bib necklaces are the THING this year. They are such a wonderful statement piece to your outfit. The jewel tone colors are perfect for the fall as well. Don’t forget that your purchases help the artisans who make them.

    5. Lenspen
    Is it just me or do you constantly find spots on your lens and especially little kid fingers smudges? I can’t live without my lenspens. Not only does it keep my lens all nice and pretty but it saves me in editing from trying to make smudges and spots disappear. If you own a camera you NEED to own a lenspen! And for $7 you can’t go wrong!

    A BIG Thank You to Amber at Noonday Collection for donating the necklace and earrings. Aren’t they beautiful?
