Living the pUPscale Life… An Autumn Adventure

So this weekend I decided to go on a little “Autumn Adventure” with my pup Frankie.  We started off in Boreum Hill, Brooklyn, headed down to the Brooklyn Promenade, over to the BK Bridge then down by the water, through DUMBO, to the Farmers Market, through Downtown BK then back home.  All it all we had a wonderful day which you can see documented in the photos above. I love taking pics of my little Frankie, he’s  such a good model don’t you think?

"Make it Work"

The last few days have been pretty intense for me as I plan, prepare, and execute our Spring 2011 Visual Guideline shoot at work.  This time of year (which happens every 3 months) is the craziest most intense 4 days ever, but it is also my favorite part of my job.  During this time my creative is always tested while I try to “make it work” as Tim Gunn would say.  It’s nice to have a challenge, especially when the end result is successful.  The above photo I think is a great reminder of what this week really means to me.  Its the “moment” that is captured and meant to convey a certain perspective.  Amongst all the craziness that is this week, its nice to be able to sit back for a moment and think, I have a job that I love doing.  One that continues to not only challenge me, but that allows me creative freedom, the the ability make an impact, and above all one that I truly do love. Not many can say that.  I’m a lucky girl! 

Happy 1st Day of Autumn

Spring Cleaning…

19 Feb

Well the time has come for a little ‘spring cleaning’ here at Fairytale Wishes, which came about as a result of this weeks homework assignment for BYW. Since starting my blog there were so many different directions I wanted to go, that it was kind of overwhelming. Especially when I started to follow tons of fabulous blogs almost overnight and each one has a quality that you would like to incorporate, not to mention on top of all of my own ideas constantly floating around my head. I wanted a blog that focused on fashion… no wait, photography… umm scratch that, how about DIY or sketching or writing or even home decor. You see what I’m saying the possibilities are endless which is a tough thing to deal with, if like me, you have a slight case of ADHD when it comes to creative projects.
With all that said, its time to focus and get back to the main topic at hand today, spring cleaning. Over the next few days you will notice quite a few changes here on Fairytale Wishes & Dreams. So far I have reformatted my layout. I’ve always wanted a 3 column layout and thanks to this lovely and very simple tutorial found here, I was able to tweak the html code myself and create one. (yay, go me!) I also simplified my header (which is still a work in progress I just needed a place holder for now). I will also be updating my blog roll and adding an ‘about me’ section, which I will be sure to keep you posted on . As you can see a lot of exciting things are happening and many more are in the works. So please stay tuned and for the time being enjoy these super cute photos I found on flickr via the extremely talented Agnieszka’s photo stream. Be sure to check out her other photos, they truly are stunning!
Oh, and by the way… as all of these changes begin to happen please don’t be to shy to share your thoughts with me. I would love to know what you all think =)
Sweet dreams
p.s. I almost forgot to mention, I also added a first reaction gadget at the end of each post. Please check it out and let me know how you like it!

Style Is Eternal…

17 Jan

Have you seen this stylish Unknown Family of Style via The Sartorialist? If not, then your in for a treat. The Sartorialist, who is know for showcasing fabulous style from around the world, spent a lovely afternoon at the Chelsea Flea Market here in NYC (one of my favorite pastimes). While browsing through old photos he came across not one, not two, but six personal photos of a very stylish unknown family. What a fabulous find! Personally, I love the old photos, not only for the look and feel but for the stories that are behind them that you (the discover) get to create. Thank you for the inspiration Sartorialist! My next trip to the flea, I will be on the hunt for my very own treasure among the boxes filled of old photos. I can only hope one day I will be lucky enough to find A Unknown Family of Style

to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.”

One Lump or Two?

13 Dec

Typically I don’t take sugar in my tea nor coffee… but it these sugar cubes were offered I might have to make an exception. Are these not the most adorable thing you have ever seen?! I can picture them featured on the tables of a whimsical wedding or a Sunday afternoon tea party. Check them out for yourself over at Cox & Cox along with many other little lovelies.


Silver & Gold…

12 Dec

Silver and gold, silver and gold,
Ev’ryone wishes for silver and gold.
How do you measure its worth?
Just by the pleasure it gives here on earth.
Silver and gold, silver and gold
Means so much more when I see
Silver and gold decorations
On ev’ry Christmas tree.

San Diego, California

17 Oct

Photos from my trip to San Diego, California a few weeks back, for work of course… but at least I made it to the beach. And in case you have never been no trip to California is complete without a stop at In-N-Out Burger! Seriously, being from California myself I know how amazing it really is and personally think everyone should have the chance to experience it.
