Golden Hour

Lets just say this was my first attempt to snap some pictures during the so called “golden hour” of photography, and I wouldn’t say it was as glamorous as I was expecting. I don’t think this bright orange top helped, but the lighting and shadows in these photos turned out pretty crazy..forgive me, practice makes perfect!

I wore this outfit to dinner with family to celebrate my little brothers birthday. Even though he’s now 15, he still requested a bow and arrow from the balloon guy…although it should be noted that I tested it out, so I guess you never really do grow up 😉

Now I haven’t worn this bubble necklace in easily a year and a half because they were so overdone, but it’s exactly what this outfit needed! I love a good peach and turquoise combo, and I’m happy I never got rid of it. I’m also wearing a little rose gold arrow necklace I found at the Atlanta Mart, but in the widget below is a gold version that I love!

 

 

Thanks for reading!

  • Strutting in this @joulesclothing dress (c/o) with one of my new #bloggerbesties @pardonmuahinsta in our matching flower crowns at #tbscon | As soon as we both introduced ourselves as Amanda we had an instant connection and felt like we had already met before! Connecting with likeminded girls is at the top of my priorities list throughout 2018. I’ve been such a homebody and stuck in my own comfort zone and it’s time to change it up!

I created a girls only private Facebook group to connect this amazing community of women here. Yes, Y O U reading this! I want you to join and hope it can become your go to place to seek advice, share your success, and feel like you’re talking to your best friends. As I slowly start to put my true self out there on social media, I’ve realized that I’m not alone in this world. We all have insecurities, weird habits, and moments to celebrate 💕 I added the new group to the link in my bio for a short period of time, but I want to keep it relatively on the DL to connect with my real squad out there 🍓.
