Happy Holidays! Hope you had a really beautiful Christmas and are gearing up for one heck of a New Years Eve! Of course our sporadic posts this week are because we’ve both been focused on our families and our nests this week as we take in a little vacation time but I wanted to share a little of what’s been going on in my life lately, aside from the craziness that is December!

In a world of so many blogs, I find it hard to keep up with the online magazines. There are some pretty great ones out there but not many have made me really enjoy “flipping” the pages as much as the first issue of Trouvé Magazine has. I love the way the words of the article are intertwined with the pictures. They layout is very pretty and easily readable, which makes me want to read it even more. And the photography is interesting and original. It’s definitely a welcome change from reading blogs 24/7. Congratulations to Emily and Amanda on issue one!

Some of you may have heard that I got a new camera for Christmas (yay!). Since I’m not going to be editing on my phone as much I decided that it was time to look into upgrading my old version of Photoshop. Since the full software price is somewhere around ridiculous, I’m looking into Photoshop Elements. From the reviews I’ve read and people I’ve talked to, Elements should be all I need / all any non-professional should need to edit their photos like a pro. The free trial has been downloaded and I’ll be using that for the full 30 days I have it to get a good feel for my needs and if it will work for me. Do you use Elements? If so, I’d love to hear your opinion!

I’ve been following Baldwin&, local advertising agency in Raleigh for a while on various social media outlets but just recently discovered an incredible side project they have going on Instagram called Rebrand Raleigh. Basically one of their designers takes the reigns for 2 weeks to give Raleigh a new identity, color scheme, logo, etc. Lots of inspiration on this Instagram for locals and non-locals alike!
