winner winner

Check it out- I won Gizmodo's Shooting Challenge this week! The Memorial Day themed challenge was pretty broad, so I submitted a pic from the beach, where I spent my day. Here's the winning photo, along with a few others from our trip.

Any other photography-lovers out there? These challenges are a great way to learn new camera techniques & have fun with friends, let me know if you give it a shot! (no pun intended)

great make [4]

While reading a copy of Bead Soup I picked up last weekend, there was a cool article for crafty people who (like me) struggle choosing color palettes! Check out this bead site where Monday Mixes are released every week- I was inspired by the Autumn Monday mix to make an anklet with coral and green compliments this morning.

Happy crafting! Don't let beads limit you, these mixes can be used for almost anything in the crafting world!

what i wore: plain pastels

A lousy, rainy day outside calls for a photo shoot inside! Lately I've been wearing plainer outfits like this, and adding accessories like this scarf I picked up in Italy, or a big, chunky necklace. The shirt is Forever 21, the pants are from American Eagle, and the shoes are Blowfish.
