Fall Beauty Products

Fall Beauty Products on Waketon Road

Over the years I’ve become quite the beauty product junkie. Because I love trying new products so much it can be hard for me to stick to a consistent routine. I am constantly adding another product into the mix. There are a few brands that I always fall back on like First Aid Beauty, but after receiving some new samples I have found a few other brands I love. I...

How To Not Miss An Opportunity

How To Not Miss An Opportunity on Waketon Road

I have been thinking a lot lately about blogging, social media and all of the things that come along with them. I have shared a few thoughts on the blogging industry and what I’ve learned on the blog before. But recently I have to admit I have fallen slightly out of love with blogging. The struggle to compete in a saturated market and the countless hours spent on social media...

Pleated Skirts and Why You Need One

Pleated Skirts and Why You Need One on Waketon Road

It’s hard to explain why I love pleated skirts so much. They probably aren’t something most people are immediately drawn to. There is a slight touch of “granny style” with a pleated skirt, but to me they are very chic. I love them for walking around a new city (seen here) or for a fun holiday party (seen here and here). Pleated skirts are all the rage around the holidays...

Blanket Scarf

Well, here we are… November! It’s so hard to believe that this year has flown by so quickly. The weather this weekend made it seem like we had skipped right from summer to winter. Luckily, fall decided to make another appearance again for Halloween. I’ve said before that I always love fall style. A Blanket scarf, boots and light layers are my favorites. And even though I love pastels, the...

How to Edit in Lightroom – Part 2

How To Edit In Lightroom on Waketon Road

In Part 1 of How I Edit in Lightroom I talked about my typical routine for all of my photos. Sunsets and landscapes take a few extra steps that I wanted to share with you. For the photos I am including in this post I shot them on the darker side knowing that I would be able to bring out the details but upping the shadows. It’s always my goal...

Stamford and The English Countryside

The English Countryside on Waketon Road

As I mentioned in Monday’s post, Brian and I quickly fell in love with the English Countryside. The scenery is breathtaking, all of the architecture is quaint and the people are the friendliest I have ever met! While staying at Hambleton Hall, we had heard recommendations from several people that the neighboring town of Stamford was worth a visit. After a morning spent enjoying Hambleton, we took a cab over...

How To Edit in Lightroom

Since I started this blogging journey, my most frequently asked questions typically surround two things. What type of camera do we use? And how do I edit my photos. Photography is something I had never done before the blog. Brian nor I had ever shot in manual mode, nor did we understand ISO or f-stop. I’ll admit Brian got the technical side of photography faster than I did. He spends...
