Casual Weekend Style

I can’t even tell you how quickly this week went by! I’m still having a hard time remembering it’s June and we’re already half way through the month! Work has been incredibly busy for me lately and I am also working on a few very exciting projects for Waketon Road. I love staying busy but I really need to remind myself to slow down and breathe. It’s so easy to...

Why It Is Important To Adapt

Why It Is Important to Adapt on Waketon Road

When I sat down to write this post I had every intention of writing about the many reasons you need a utility jacket in your wardrobe. And I still believe that, so definitely invest in one if you don’t already have one. But as with so many things this week, I found myself adapting to a new direction. This week has been full of “curve balls” and as a planner...

The Inspiration Behind a Cohesive Brand

The Inspiration Behind a Cohesive Brand on Waketon Road Blog

Something I get questions and comments on quite often is how I keep my feed so cohesive. I wrote this post about the technical side of how I make everything flow including what apps I use. Today I wanted to focus on something completely different but probably answers the question better. It really comes down to inspiration!

Great Expectations on Waketon Road Blog wearing Abercrombie & Fitch

I have thinking a lot lately about “great expectations.” No, not the Charles Dickens novel, but how we all think something should turn out.

I am the type of person that lives in the...

It’s not the challenges that life throws at you that really matter it’s how you handle it. Occasionally it will rain on your parade, but it’s all about finding the silver lining. It can be tough to see...

A Little More About Me

In my whole year of Waketon Road I have never done “a little more about me” post. As I have gotten more comfortable I have added a few more personal posts. I usually stick to the content but I felt like it was time I shared a little more about me. I’m seeing a few more visitors around here lately so a proper introduction is in order! So here are twelve...

How I Create A Cohesive Brand

Today I am continuing with my blogging theme in honor of Waketon Road’s one year anniversary. Over the year I have gotten questions from people regarding photography, editing and creating a cohesive brand. This is all a work in progress and I will continue to evolve as I learn more. But I wanted to share with you what I have learned so far and the tools that help me stay cohesive....

If you read Monday’s post you will know that Waketon Road just celebrated its first birthday! It’s been a fun year of learning the ins and outs of the blogging world. Now, I am by no means an expert but I have learned a thing or two that I do want to share with you. Whether you’re thinking of starting a blog, have been blogging for a while, or just curious what...
