DSC_1548I decided to make one more trip home to Maryland this weekend before the big move. Whenever I come home, there are a few spots I just have to check out. One of them? Rocks State Park. The down side is that when I come home, I have a lot of things I want to do, and not much time to do them. I’m no stranger to being in a rush, so instead of stopping for breakfast, I grabbed a juice to go before the hike to the King and Queen Seat. How amazing is this view? It’s definitely one of my favorite spots because the views are so breathtaking (photos truly don’t do it justice).

DSC_1535Anyone else out there love Naked Juice? When they offered to send me their newest product I was pretty excited to test it out. One of their newest is the Berry Almond Nutmilk which contains 11g of protein per bottles (what?). This flavor is actually one of my least favorites (probably because it contains 26 blueberries, and I’m not crazy about blueberries). However, I do generally love their products especially the new proteins & greens flavor which contains 2 1/3 apples, 1/2 kiwi, 1/2 pineapple, 1/2 banana and a whopping 16g of protein!

Gabrielle Garcar, an elementary school student in Ohio, was selling lemonade to earn money to buy a new electronic tablet, when a local police officer surprised her with the device. Sheriff’s Deputy Zach Ropos was so impressed with the 9-year-old’s work ethic that he decided to give her the tablet himself, ABC News reported. Ropos, an officer in Lake County, Ohio, stopped by Gabrielle’s stand on Monday. After paying $3 for a 50-cent cup of lemonade, he learned what she planned to do with the money, but knew it might be difficult for her to reach her goal.

I think this might actually be the longest break from blogging I’ve taken since I started. Things have been so hectic in life lately that blogging has been tough to think about. The most ironic part of that, is that this stressful time is probably when I need blogging the most..

Blogging for me has always been a form of self-care. My day job can be pretty.. intense, and it’s nice to go home and be able to focus on something that doesn’t have to be so serious..

Journaling is one of the things I recommend most to my clients who are dealing with stress, anxiety, or depression. It is such a positive outlet, and at the end, you have something to look back on. In a lot of ways, this blog is my journal. I don’t always get serious on here, but over these next couple of weeks I plan on sharing a little more of myself. If for nothing else, than to be able to look back on what this life transition was like for me.

Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson announced in a letter Friday that his organization would donate $100,000 in honor of the victims of the Charleston, South Carolina, shooting on Wednesday. Richardson said in a letter to the Mother Emanuel Hope Fund, which was set up by Charleston Mayor Joseph P. Riley to provide financial support for the families’ funeral expenses, that $10,000 should go to each of the families of the nine victims. The final $10,000 is to go to the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, the site of the shooting, “as a memorial honoring the victims.”

..but seriously, I was definitely trying really hard to look cool in these photos. I’ve always loved those iconic ‘I’m just staring straight ahead in my sunglasses’ photos you see people posing in, typically on the cover of a vinyl album. I would love to tell myself I’m that cool..but I had to try way too hard to achieve this look..

In continuing my theme of shooting with local art, these photos were taken in an alley in downtown Columbus. It’s located on North Pearl Street, next to the El Arepazo Latin Grill. There is actually a rather large mural that begins a little to my left with vibrant colors and incredible detail. The area can get a little crowded though, so we opted to shoot with the rhino instead :)DSC_0324

The trailer for one of the movies I helped out on, Union Furnace is finally out! The film will be released July 17th and while I didn’t do costumes on this movie, I totally got to be an extra and it was super fun! It’s definitely a horror film, so weak stomachs beware! But if you’re interested in check out the trailer for this awesome film done by some talented local artists, click play below :)
