I spent some time in London at the end of last year and met up with a photographer who I have been insta-friends with since I first started blogging over 2 years ago. Rebecca Spencer of Rebecca Spencer Photography is not only an insanely talented photographer, but one of the coolest chicks around with her charismatic and genuine personality. She has quickly grown to work with some of the biggest names in the business, so I was so excited to meet up with her in South Kensington to photograph one of my favorite gowns by designer Rachel Allan. This Rachel Allan gown screamed royalty to me, so when I found out I was going to be making a trip to London, I knew I had to have it. The details are exquisite and literally sparkle as you move. The organza skirt flows effortlessly with even the softest of movements. It is such a princess gown – which could not have been more fitting walking through the luxe South Kensington neighborhood.
I have been posting so many photos from my Europe trip recently, and in turn have been getting a bunch of questions about what we did, where we went and where we stayed. Spending the holidays in Paris was a dream I never knew I had, but it is something I would love to experience again and again. Patrick and I were in Paris at the end of November into early December. I loved this time of year because everything was set up for Christmas, yet there were still the most amazing Autumn colors. It was truly magical! We were lucky to not have much rain, although there is something nostalgic about hiding away from the rain in a Parisian Café.
First official post of 2018!!!
I swear the years start to fly by faster and faster as we get older. I have so many personal and professional goals this year, but for some reason they don’t seem as daunting as they used to. The first week in January is the most awkward time for everyone, but I incorporated a few goals this year that are keeping me inspired and on track, so I thought i’d share them with you in the hopes that it connects with someone!
Can you believe we are about to head into the new year!? It is easy to look back at the year as a whole and think it was a complete blur, but it is so important to reflect on 2017 in order to move into the new year with a clear mind and inspired state.
