Hey there ladies and gents. Hope this week has been good to you. I know it has to me (partially, that is). Besides some difficult lessons I have learnt this week concerning the nitty-gritty of freelance life, this week has been full of catching up with lovely people and meeting new ones as well, dancing for hours at Sisyphos, working my ass off both for LFB and for Photograephie my freelance photography business, making big plans for the future, skateboarding, and trying to decide which sofa to buy for the living room (seriously, help me decide because I am at a loss of which color is best).
Try as I might to avoid becoming like every other blogger out there, I have decided to accept my fate and admit that I am getting overly excited about fall, which has somehow spiralled into me indulging in Starbucks and lush bath bombs. I know Starbucks this seems like an odd choice of drink for someone who promotes small businesses and conscious lifestyle, but as an ex-pat living abroad for 7 years now, there are just certain establishments that are part of American culture that I just kind of miss, especially around October, as we enter into darker, colder days.
I was chatting about this with Betti this week and I had said that I feel like besides focusing a lot more on convenience (which I do not think is always a good thing), the US (as well as the UK) seems to have this level of comfort and obsession with cozy things, especially around this time of year that I really miss as an ex pat, especially during Fall and Winter.
I also mentioned yesterday that I am offering a 10% discount to LFB readers for photo packages – be it for engagement announcements, wedding coverage, or lifestyle portraits. I am also willing to travel for work, so don’t hesitate to contact me!!!
