I think its about time to introduce a new feature on my blog! Every so often, I’m going to let you guys in on some of my favorite things in life! These favorites can be anything from recipes to lip gloss to sports teams. I love reading other photographers/bakers/writers/etc blogs and my favorite blog posts are usually the personal ones that show more of their personality and flair, so I thought I would give it a try! Cheers to my introductory installment of favorites! Enjoy!

* Notebooks. I love the thought of writing all my thoughts, hopes, dreams, aspirations, etc in these lovely, crafted, artistic notebooks you can find at Borders or Barnes and Noble. The reality is I buy them with the best intentions but end up pushing them to the side and never use them to their full potential. I’m not sure why I’m drawn to legal pads and writing utensils when I absolutely hate writing things down on paper, mainly because my handwriting skills can be compared to a serial killer. Thanks to technology I don’t have to spend the time writing my grocery list down on paper and try to keep up with it, I just type it into my iPhone and ta-da, I have my list! However with the simplicity of computers or iphones, I still daydream about receiving personal handwritten notes from loved ones, because writing a handwritten note to a loved one these days is about as personable as you can get. So I’ll keep buying notebooks in hopes of one day writing everyone I love a handwritten note to tell them how much I love them.

* Flippie floppies. Living in Texas where the weather is summer 9 out of the 12 months, wearing flip flops 95% of the year isn’t uncommon. My mum tells me every chance she gets that flip flops are horrible for my health and I’ll one day regret it, but I’m addicted. They are convenient, cheap, comfortable, and just plain awesome. My mum is usually right (yes, mum.. I just said that!) so I’m sure one day I’ll regret it but as of now, I’m going to wear my Yellow Box flippies tonight with my purty dress to watch the Brian Burke Boys kill it at River Road Icehouse. And guess what? I won’t be complaining that my feet hurt either! BOOM.

* Charming Charlie. Oh emmm geee…. I love love love love love that store! Not only do they have every accessory possible, it’s COLOR COORDINATED. That’s right, it’s organized, that is what really gets my heart all fluttery and beating! I could just stand in the front door and drool at the scene of everything neatly organized and pretty. Their clothes are fab and if that wasn’t enough, they have any necklace, ring, earring, purse, shoes, hair clip, etc you can think of to go with any outfit. This is my happy place, folks!

* Torchy’s Tacos. I love living in Austin and the environment/people/vibe/food is amazing. Torchy’s takes the gold medal when it comes to tacos and queso. They have a fried avocado taco that is pretty much better than the memory of your wedding day. If you’re ever in the ATX area eating at Torchy’s is a must. I also like their chicken fajita taco and sometimes I get spicy and order their trailer park chicken taco. Their green chili queso is amazing, it’s often super spicy and I’m certain that one day I’m going to get an ulcer from the heat of the spiciness but that doesn’t stop me from indulging in this delectable, heavenly treat. As I’m writing this my mouth is watering for some queso, I believe I know where I’m going for lunch! Trust me try it and let me know what you think!

Hope you enjoyed reading this blog! Would love some feedback! Of course I can’t leave you guys without showing you a photo or two! Here are a few more photos from the Matisyahu concert at Stubbs! Full blog will come soon! Have a great weekend!

love it. live it. capture it.
