When I booked my flight ticket to Utah in March, one of the top places I wanted to see was the Salt Flats at Bonneville. Thousands of years ago, this location used to be a huge lake that has dried up since then. Nowadays, it’s home to virtually nothing but salt pans. However, there’s definitely something worth capturing even in the middle of nowhere. It’s a beautiful natural phenomenon that becomes even more stunning after it rains. When wet, the salt flats cast a mesmerizing reflection of the serene mountain and blue skies. It’s one of the most surreal experiences to witness in person, while also creating one the best mirror effect photography. Captivated by it all, I felt like a miniature figurine inside a snow globe. The landscape stretches on for miles and you can’t help but feel so small in such a vast endless space! ~b
Even in the dead of the winter, Charleston is bursting with colors. To be honest, the city always looks and feels like spring to me. With pastel hue homes lining up the cobble street roads and warm temperature year round, it’s a sunny place to be regardless of the season. I recently visited with my family/friends from California and they were charmed by the culture here! We ventured to Rainbow Row and walked along the iconic Battery. Although it was not my first time, I always love exploring the idyllic neighborhoods. There always seems to be something new tucked away on every corner! A lot of the mansions are also being renovated so buildings are constantly changing. Overall, Charleston is a nice escape from modern cities and it’s a place that truly appreciates tradition and history. ~b
Hi guys! It’s the official first post of 2018 and I’m starting it off with an outfit from 2017. Sorry I was MIA, but the holidays kept me pretty busy hanging out with the people I love 🙂 . These photos were taken on Christmas Eve in a little town known as Christmas Town USA. Population 665. The festive town dazzled and twinkled with 500,000 Christmas lights. This is an ongoing tradition within the community since 1956. The holiday lights sparked the streets with pure joy. It was absolutely heartwarming to see how excited all the children were in this glimmering wonderland!
In these photos, I’m posing inside a giant pine tree draped in stringed lights. Not your so average photoshoot – 😉 but I thought they turned out pretty neat! The lights danced and flickered all around me, leaving me a state of happiness. It also provided the perfect backdrop for this impromptu shoot. Anywho, more fun content is coming on the blog and I can’t wait to share them with you guys! In the meantime, I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for reading and stopping by. I am so appreciative for your support. I’m wishing everyone a very bright and blessed year. ❤ ~b
Happy Monday y’all! As this week slowly unravels, I hope you are able to get all your last minute gifts. Christmas is literally just around the corner! There are plenty of unique places to get presents for your loved ones. I found this tiny pop-up village right in the city center park. Filled with home-made crafts, fresh cut trees, and scrumptious strudels – this place was delightful 🙂 ! Though it was a rather small market with only a few vendors, I hope it expands in the future and become an Uptown tradition.
What I Wore:
Whenever I am out and about – I generally dress super comfortable and casual. My outfit of the day consist of the famous Stuart Weitzman OTK boots. They are a must-have item for fall and winter because they instantly add chic to any outfit! Pairing the look with a laid-back sweater, checked scarf, and a structured crossbody – I was ready for a day of festive shopping! Cheers! ~b
