 For the first time, in many years, I feel like I'm actively seeking out activities that make me happy and fulfilled. Photography is one of those things. I recently bought a Canon T2i - mainly to take pictures of my products on Etsy but, also to satisfy a desire I've always had to take creative photos. After styling so many photo shoots over the years, it was a little weird to be the one actually capturing the images, but it was also quite thrilling. Once we were done shooting all of my products for Beautifulshyt, Caitlyn and I took an hour out and shot these images in my apartment. 

Doing what you love - even if it's only a hobby - makes life more beautiful and bearable, especially when life takes it's unexpected turns.

With my first official post of 2011, I'd like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! I feel like everything (good and bad) that happened to me last year, was leading me to this moment and this year - which I have a feeling will be one of the best years of my life. Just like everyone, I've struggled with confidence and believing in myself but, recently I've become a believer in the Power of Positive Thinking. If you believe you won't succeed - then you won't. WE create our world with our thoughts - so if you believe you will be successful, then YOU WILL. Changing the way you think is hard - especially if you're not used to thinking positively about yourself - but it CAN be done. It's a process - don't give up! So whatever goal you set for this year don't "hope" to achieve it. "BELIEVE", and it will happen.  

I hope you like all of the LOVELY new Accessories I just added!
