it all started with a camera.

And a bit of a mid 20's life crisis... from a road of heartbreak and a desire for balancing out my passions, I started out as a beauty blogger.  But I soon found my true passion in bringing my camera up from my vanity. (Ok you got me I still love a good beauty bit.)

 Balance is what it's all about here!! You may find beauty finds to travel musts and back to just daily lifestyle posts. I'm so happy you found my corner of the internet and am happy to share the beauty of balance with you.

How I Got My Dream Job With Very Few Credentials

life

Over a month ago I quit my engineering job.

My good benefits, college degree aligned job. It was terrifying. And exhilarating. An all of the above kind of situation if you will.

And rather than doing what was expected – brush up my resume and search for more degree specific jobs, I took a leap of faith.  With a big move out of state it felt like the right time. I turned my resume into my passionate, albeit short listed, skills for photography. I had one absolutely horrible interview (Note to self: interviewing is not my strong point) and one voicemail left to a company I called my “long shot.”  Turns out my long shot was the right one.  And within two weeks of living in Montana I found myself no longer 27 and unemployed.

Effortless Summer Style

Style

All my summer posts are quite late to game.  Though I would like to blame the move to Montana, career switch, and multiple vacations for the lack of proper timing over here.  Truth be told I would write about summer style and to-do’s all year long if I could manage it.  Including of course, summer style.

I had heard about all the comfort jumpsuits offered, but assumed my petite non-long legged figure would look dwarfed in one.  And make me look like a small child who raided her mom’s closet.  (Not a style I aim towards.) Turns out these bad boys can fit any way you like and designed for all different body styles.

Fresh Fruit Popsicles

life

I’m definitely not exaggerating how much of a summer person I am.  And my first Montana summer has been a hot one.  We love our new home, but we are not so in love with our lack of AC.  Living in Wyoming meant that our summers hardly ever got above 85, so going without AC for all those years hardly phased me.  But living in 95+ heat is a whole other story.

It was our second week in our new loft apartment when I finally caved.  We bought two small AC units for the bedrooms and while we slept amazing, we found ourselves posted up and eating dinner in there too.  No joke.

So I like to think these fresh fruit popsicles came out of necessity.  Not just another excuse to treat ourselves 😉

5 Favorite Beauty Hacks

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve shared  beauty post on here!  But with all the changes in my life lately I think it’s just one of those things that has taken a big back seat.

Freshly Picked

life

If there is anything that screams summer it’s fresh fruit.  And with a move to Montana I was super excited as our home/loft apartment was surrounded by fresh fruit trees. We may have missed the blooms this spring, but we have  s o  m u c h  fruit this summer. Apricots, apples, choke cherries and plums! It’s something I’ve never really had in any house I lived in.  Wyoming basically only grew dandelions and on my parents farm the horses nabbed any apples before we could get to them.

So, while L grew up in the house and sees the fruit trees as the source for chores I was enthralled with all of them.  Fresh fruit in our backyard? Right in downtown Bozeman?  Crazy.

5 Feel Goods

life

I know it hasn’t been too long since my last ‘Feel Goods’ (I’m thinking maybe just a short week ago I shared good news), but this is a series I want to keep going. And I know I have the tendency to never stick with series.  They always start to feel a bit contrived or stiff after awhile.

But these are the exact opposite.  I love having something so positive too look forward to when I log back on and sharing some of my favorite good news brings me so much joy!
