What an amazing team to work with. I had such a great time with everyone and viewing the outcome of the photos is always such an exciting moment. A positive mindset is very important to the outcome of a project; everyone feeds off one another’s energy and you can definitely tell in the final results if something was off or amiss. And I have to say, these photos are exceptional.

The team was amazing! Everyone put in such hard work, keeping in  great spirits the entire time.  The weather was perfect, slightly overcast with a warm temperature that wasn’t overbearing.  And everyone felt valued, that’s one of the most important things in life, I think. Everyone wants to feel valued. In my opinion, to be a good person you have to make everyone feel that they are worth the energy and time.  When I feel like I am needed, it makes my heart truly happy and able to radiate light and love.

So, thank you team! You are all amazing. Amazing to work with, amazingly talented and with such blessed and talented spirits. Your light truly was shown and I’m so happy to have been able to do this editorial with you all, it’s something I am very proud of and happy to be given the chance and opportunity.

A Very Furtching Birthday Pawty

2016april022

A very Furtching Birthday Pawty for my little princess’ 12th Birthday!♡ Not only

Not only was it their birthday their 12 birthday but it was also Easter! How fun is that? Every year, I try to do something for them that is fun. This year, it was quite easy to choose a theme since their birthday fell on Easter so it was rather made up by the heavens and a very easy theme for me to set on.

Easter is a time to celebrate family and friends; to give thanks for all those who have passed and all those who are still here. It is a great time for us to be grateful for one another and reflect on everything that we have been given. I like to let people know if they are important to me and so I send people little gifts and things just letting them know how wonderful they are.
I am old fashioned when it comes to snail mail, I rather enjoy writing cards and letters to my friends and family; I try to do it every single holiday, on someone’s anniversary, birthday or new event in their life. So, of course Easter cards to family and friends. This year, I sent Easter outfits to my nieces & nephews along with a delicious package of See’s Candies. More about that after my post on my birthday girls.

For their birthday party, I put together a really cute simple tablescape. Setting it in living room so that they could have access to the table as they can drink out of adorable little teacups and have birthday cake. They are very special to me, and are basically the only children I ever want. of course, I truly treat them like the absolute little princesses they are. For the table, a simple white runner with tulips, orchids, stemware and a few candles.

How cute was their birthday? Absolutely adorable!!

Now, other gifts for friends and family. Obviously, I don’t want to drop in a bunch of children’s fashion photos but you could definitely go for some chocolate visuals. Either way, in this situation that I will show you a cute little gift to a very special friend of mine. My darling Lory who is so sweet, deserving all the love she can get. The gift is in relation to her current field of study. There is nothing better than a friend who shares your interest. Behold, this adorable vintage bone saw~! T♡♡ Cute!! L♡VE~! I found it in a cute little Silver Lake neighborhood where my doggies go to the vet, it’s called Memento Mori (Latin: Remember you must die)

Also, another cute little package was sent to my aunt just to let her know that she is appreciated for all that she does and to let her know that someone is thinking of her. She takes care of my beautiful cousin. He was born with a severe case of cerebral palsy; obviously, his life has not been easy nor has hers. It’s important to me to let people know that they are needed, wanted and appreciated. And my dear Aunt, G~. I L♡VE you so much. She enjoyed her Godiva chocolates immensely. The first package was a pre-boxed kind. The next, I hand selected each piece with her in mind.

And finally, for myself…. Rag&Bone Jeans in my size. Heaven, my second skin. I could kick box or do yoga in these jeans.
