Lochlan turns 3…

It is NOT news that I am obsessed with my nephews…

It isss news that Lochlan turned 3. My oh my, I couldn’t love him more. We celebrated 3 years of adoring him and seeing THIS personality develop… with a photo shoot.

You mightttt remember, I took shots just like this of his now-almost-5-year-old big brother when he was 3….You can see them right here!

Merriest December

I hope you’re enjoying your holidays!
My weekend was blissfully filled with photoshoots, snowy-as-can-be-white-out-kind-of-walks, watching the Santa Clause with Eric & co, editing with Dean Martin carols playing, and…mulled wine. I mean, I truly don’t know how I’ve lived without ever having tried mulled wine – I think I regret everything up until now…do yourself a favour this holiday and mull it up.
And the best news of today….9 days till Christmas!

Those Fall sunsets…

It’s pains me to say goodbye to summer. My favourite season – sunshine, lush greenery and gorgeous weather.

But – we embrace the new, right? A fresh start. Bring on those fall sunsets and pumpkin spice lattes…


The Love Chapters | Day 11 | A little Valentine’s primping…

Here is a fun little nail heart tutorial – SUPER simple and super cute. :) Just in time for v-day! Enjoy!
{instructions below!}

Here is a step-by-step go to!
You’ll need: an X-Acto knife, white labels (regular ol’ scotch tape works too!), pencil, clear polish, and 2 nail polish colours. I used “Got the Blues for Red” by OPI & “Silver Lining” by Covergirl…

1 ♥ Paint nails with base colour of your choice. :) Let DRY for a couple of hours for best results. If you can’t wait,… {you impatient Polly} take a blow dryer to them to make sure they are bone dry!
2 ♥ Draw with a pencil the heart/shape you would like onto the label.
3 ♥ With an X-Acto knife (or sharp pair of scissors), cut out the shape. You need to have a base to cut into – I used a rubber pad used to open cans. :) This is tricky! Due to the size of the shape, be very careful… :)
4 ♥ Keep on makin those little wee cuts and trimming! Soon you’ll have an empty outline!
5 ♥ Place the label on your nail in the area you would like!
6 ♥ Press the label down so it is very “stuck”… especially around the edging of your shape.
7 ♥ Take your heart colour and paint over top of the label. –Looks messy now, looks cute later.– Make sure you don’t have TOO much nail polish on your brush! You don’t want it to run when you remove the label.
8 ♥ Wait about 10 seconds and peel off the label!
9 ♥ Wait at least an hour to apply a top coat – otherwise the clear polish will pull your sweet little heart outta shape! Only apply a top coat if you really want to. :)
Oh ya…. And then don’t forget to do the other hand. ;)
