    Hello, lovelies! Today’s post features the family and I’s spontaneous excursion to St. Augustine, Florida, last weekend. Besides my first legal drink with the ‘rents (margaritas all around, waiter), this day held another “first” for me: the first time I’ve ever dared to wear a wacky lipstick shade outside of the house.

  • Every June 5th, the Flagler Museum celebrates its anniversary by offering to the public a free one-day pass to Whitehall, Henry Morrison Flagler’s formidable Palm Beach home. What was once an elaborate wedding present for Flagler’s third wife (and what a gift that was!) is now accessible year round, and while Founder’s Day visitors are only granted access to Whitehall’s first floor and Flagler’s private railcar, they’re able...

Being lucky enough to get there while the brightly-colored yellow flowers were still in bloom, I rejoiced at the opportunity and, taking advantage of it, started snapping pictures! The magnificent tranquility of the scene that was laid out before me made me think of the following passage: “They now came upon more and more of the big scarlet poppies, and fewer and fewer of the other flowers; and...

  • A word of warning: if you’re easily bugged out by images of insects, this post is not for you. Today, I went to the Florida Museum of Natural History located here in Gainesville, FL and spent about an hour just gawking at all of the dazzling butterflies in their special Butterfly Rainforest exhibit! I was pleasantly surprised to discover that these butterflies were anything but camera shy, and upon realization quickly proceeded to shove my camera lens as close... (Read More)
