wild with the leaves

"Besides the Autumn poets sing
A few prosaic days
A little this side of the snow
And that side of the Haze...
Grant me, Oh Lord, a sunny mind—
Thy windy will to bear!"

-Emily Dickinson
 

   Nothing is more wonderful than the first crisp, chilly day in September. The feeling of wrapping up in your warmest sweater while drinking your morning coffee on the porch, puling on wool socks before your loafers, and the chill on your face when walking from point A to point B could not make me want more. It is strange and brilliant how happy the change of the seasons make me.

   I pulled out my brunt orange and creamy brown colored clothing today, to celebrate this change in the weather. I little stroll through a nearby trail was my morning. I can't wait for the rest of the season to begin.

end of summer giveaway, with present

   Happy end of summer friends! I am beyond happy to be wrapping this season and heading right into my two favorite times of the year (fall and winter). In honor of this change in the year, I have paired up with my friend Rachel Gottlieb of Present to share this giveaway with my readers.

   I have been dying to get my hands on a pair of giant pom-pom earrings this summer season, and it just so happens Present answered my wishes. I wore my royal blue pom-pom earrings with matching lipstick and a white summer dress, but I can't wait to wear them with everything else in my wardrobe. The winner of this giveaway will receive an identical pair of pom-pom earrings to my personal ones. The giveaway is simple, just follow the steps below on the widget to be entered to win the prize. The winner will be announced September 6th, the day the giveaway closes. Best of luck to all!

-Bram Stoker, Dracula

    It has been awhile since I have done a shoot for the pure enjoyment of photography. I had some expired 35 mm film from 2007 and I decided to capture many of the images through that format (which you can obviously tell the film apartment from the ones taken with my dslr). I have been experimenting much lately with more nudity, bareness, horror-inspired, and indoor shooting with my photographs. Listening to the original Dracula soundtrack while shooting inspired me beyond words.  I hope to be doing more projects like this, including shooting a short film horror within the year and writing a few short scary stories.
