idk if you know this about me, but I love Barbie…a lot (not like in a ‘I buy Barbie dolls as an adult’ sort of way, but more in a ‘I love the girly aesthetic of Barbie’ sort of way). That being said, I do not often buy clothes from Barbie collaborations, usually because there is something a little off about the pieces. Occasionally, I do find something that I love enough to buy like this kid’s jacket from Target. While I think that it is cute on its own, I couldn’t help but feel like it needed a little fawn print or something. I decided the best way to add it would be to make a detachable fawn fur collar…the only problem being that I have never made a detachable collar. I looked for a tutorial online and after watching a bunch of youtube videos, I finally found one on a blog that was super easy to follow. I really love the way it turned out! Here are some pics :
I love taking outfit pictures and I have been taking them since I was in high school…it is so weird but I was completely confident doing so, even in public up until recently. Over this past year, I have been trying to get comfortable in front of the camera again. While I am not completely there, I do feel like I have made some progress and I wanted to share the outfit pics I did take :)
My goal for this year is to take more! Slow Magic takes all of the outfit photos and while it was difficult for me to explain to him exactly what I wanted at first, I feel like we are now getting the hang of it and I am actually so excited to take more with him (I hope he is too lol). Do you have any goals for this year… or any tips for getting over taking pictures in public?
Happy New Years everyone!!!
I thought now would be a good time to share an accomplishment from 2018, which is that Slow Magic played Coachella. I am so proud of him and it was so much fun AND I never posted pictures from it so I thought I would now :) The first two outfits are from the first weekend and the third outfit is from the second weekend. We were so sick on the second week, which was hard but still fun.

Out of all of the Christmas trees I decorated this year, this one is definitely my favorite. My dad picked it out and I think he did such a good job…it is like my dream tree! Anyways, before we came to Vermont, I began looking for a fake fur garland for the tree. I couldn’t find one that wasn’t super expensive, but I did end up finding this end piece of fake fur at Joann’s for around $2. I cut the fabric into four inch wide strips, folded them in half lengthwise and then secured them with a hot glue gun so that the back side of the fabric wouldn’t be visible. In addition to the ornaments that we already had, I ordered two more sets of ornaments (one set bigger than the other) in pink and blue, and picked up a few extra big baby blue ornaments at Lowe’s. I think having many different sizes of ornaments helped to add dimension making the overall appearance of the tree more magical.
On Christmas Eve, it started snowing, which was so exciting…having a snowy Christmas is the best! For Christmas Eve dinner, I taught my dad how to roast a chicken. I never really get to do anything like that with my dad (I usually cook with my mother, but she had a really bad cold and was unable to help), which made it one of my favorite parts of Christmas.
On Christmas day, the sun came out and it was so dreamy. After we all woke up, we opened our presents by the fire and then we had our Christmas brunch. Afterwards, Slow Magic and I went on a walk before heading to my cousin’s house.
What did you do for Christmas?

I have been looking for the perfect cream cable knit sweater, and while I have not yet found one, I did find this cream cable knit cardigan while we were in Tokyo. It is so cozy and fall…I love it.
Anyways, we took these pics when there were still leaves on the trees and now that they are almost all gone, I am suddenly in such a Christmas mood. Seriously…Hallmark movies, Christmas music and everything. Does anyone else feel like this lol?
