Fall Hot Air Balloon Festival

Yesterday I went to a fall festival with my friend and got to ride a hot air balloon and it was all very fun and exciting. It made me really excited for Halloween next week and I will do another blogpost for that and share what I dressed as and what I am doing.

They had this at a designated area for "Oktober fest" with german music and food

We found a Photo Booth and had to take the funniest pictures and then we also got these cute pins for memory

Look its me and my husband...no thank you

They had so many hot air balloons, some were just for show and they lit up. These were tethered hot air balloon rides and I went on the red, yellow, green stripped on in the back. We had to wait 2 hours and the ride lasted about 3 minutes, it was very hot and the basket was tiny.

My first time eating funnel cake, yumm!

I would definitely recommend going to a fall/Halloween festival, they're so much fun. I can't believe October is almost over, Sophia.

My fall in pictures


First of all, I am very sorry and sure regret not posting these past 3 months. I was overwhelmed with schoolwork as I have chosen very difficult this year, but I'm determined to become active again. My fall has been full of football games, cats, coffee and homecoming. Couldn't forget to take a few good pictures as always. Fall is really a beautiful time and I am really excited to share all that has been going on in my life (a lot) with this blog. 


Luna, my first cat got into the habit of sleeping in boxes...i have no idea why.
I also spent a cloudy day in the city...It was only in September but really chilly.

Ok, a moment for honesty. This is hot chocolate, I don't like coffee. But it was in a small cafe with cozy decorations, really perfect for fall. And it was also quite delicious.

Enjoyed a day in West Midtown:)

Some of my relatives came to visit my family and showed us some old pics of them in the 70's. They really inspired me to take better photographs and capture life as it is now.




Another coffee pic? Yeah, guilty...But this still isn't mine.

And this is by far the most exciting news...We rescued another kitty. We named her Lucy, she is black and has yellow-green eyes. Her skin is very fluffy and cozy and she is about 3 months old.


I have many exciting things to share with all of y'all, I can't wait! 
Love, Sophia

Summer OOTD: Stripes and Lace


It has been a very emotional and stressful week for me, but I managed to create an OOTD blogpost. Even though we haven't had summer(y) weather this week, I'm still going to wear summer outfits. Because I love photography, I tend to take many different pictures even if it's the same outfit.


What I love about this dress is how flowly it is. It's so fun, especially when twirling.


I find this dress to give me a spontaneous feeling, I like that it isn't tight.


When I wear this dress I feel free, like I can just do what I want.


I like wearing this dress with more accessories than I normally wear, because it is so plain and simple. 


To add color to this dress I wore a cute orange lace bralette underneath. It contrast with the dress, because it is so cute and delicate. In comparison the dress is more boyish (because of the wide fit).


These flowers just seemed to be perfect for a picture with outfit.


Here you can see the cool detail about this dress, the back cutout!!! And if you have read any of my other blogposts, you probably know my addiction/love for back cutouts.


I love how the bralette intentionally peeks out in the back cutout and at the side of my dress.


This dress looks so fun, especially when dancing/twirling. It's just like my hair, but a bit more tamed...


Here is a good complete picture of my look, simple but detailed.


Here is the side view of my dress, it's cool how loose the dress is.


Another thing that I love about this dress is when you move/twirl it looks like you can see my entire back and bralette (like in this picture). This is due to the big back cutout and loose fitting. Lately, I have also been in love with pictures that are partially blurry because of movement. Like in this picture I am playing with my hair and its all blurry, but my dress is still relatively focused.


Here you can see the neckline of this dress in detail. Here is also one of my favorite necklaces, I wore it to add detail and I think it adds to the vibe of this dress.


These are my shoes I am wearing, cute gold strappy sandals. 


Lately I have also been addicting to painting, drawing small tattoos on my body (like this pink sun on my ankle). Every year in the summer I buy me cute handmade looking bracelets and wear them around my ankle. For some reason, I just really love how it looks.

Have a great summer,
