Aspiring Bloggers 01: Alexandra

Hello my blogger friends! I have created a new post series where I interview bloggers that I absolutely love! To kick off the new series, Alexandra has kindly accepted to be interviewed for my blog. Her blog is called Into the Woods, and it's honestly one of my all-time favorite blogs. She has such a beautiful style, and it's like walking into a lovely, enchanted wood every time I pay her blog a visit. So without further adieu, meet Alex. :) 

Hey Alexandra! Could you tell us a little about yourself and your blog?
Hey there! Well, I started my blog, Into the Woods, back in 2012- today it is my space to share my love for photography, vintage fashion and all things creative!

Why did you decide to start a blog?
I wanted to start a blog to show girls that there was a way to dress modestly, while still being fashionable :)

How would you describe your style? I'd say a mix of classic and vintage, with a few modern trends thrown in here and there.

What are some of your favorite beauty products? Hard question! I suppose I would have to say any of the MAC lipsticks, any sort of primer ( life changing haha), and Coastal Scents eye shadows- they are amazing quality, and so affordable!


Who does your lovely photography?
My mom and sister switch off week to week- they are my life savers! I do the camera settings and they snap away- we are like a little team :)

What's one of your favorite outfits you've worn and why?
Let me think... I'd have to say my outfit from the California Dreamin' post is one of my favorites- I felt so retro that day!

What do you enjoy most about blogging?
Coming up with new content! It is so fun to plan shoots- I just love it!

Do you have a fashion inspiration? If so, who?
You betcha- Audrey Hepburn, Zooey Descchanel and Taylor Swift

If you had to dress in clothing from any time period which would it be?
1950s all the way!

Do you have a bible verse you live by? 
One of my favorites is "Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path." Proverbs 3:5IMG_3254
Thank you so much for letting me interview you Alex! It was so much fun!

Sweet 16

Hi guys! Today is my birthday!!! I'm officially 16! We went on a trip a few days ago to celebrate my birthday. We went to Tennessee. It was a looonnnggg drive, but it was totally worth it! 

We went to a bear zoo! The bears were adorable. They would clap for food. I got a video of one of them clapping, but once I saw a sign saying that you couldn't videotape them, I felt so guilty that I deleted it. I tried to capture one bear clapping so I hope you enjoy it all the same. :)
We had some great food there! Yum!!!

The view was beautiful! Especially since we went in the autumn time.

We also went on a Ghost Walk. It wasn't scary or anything. This guy would tell us stories about things that happened in that town. He showed us a couple different places that were supposedly haunted. I liked learning about the history of their town. Before going there, we stopped by a graveyard with tons of old graves. Some were from the 1700's! You might be thinking that it's weird to look at graveyards but I find it has a deep, solemn beauty. As I read their graves, I was curious what their story was.

This pic is really blurry, but I couldn't help but put this on as well. Oh Dobby!

I hope you enjoyed this post that I sorta threw together at the last minute. ;) Thanks for reading!<3

Blogiversary

Guess what? My little ol' blog turned 1 yesterday! I can't believe how much my blog has grown in a year's time. From having no followers to having almost a hundred! I am extremely grateful for you all. Thank you!
October has been a super busy month for me. That's why new posts aren't quite as frequent as they used to be. I've suddenly been filled this week with inspiration, so I have a lot of cool posts that will be coming soon! Feel free to tell me what you think. :)
