Hours seem to just fade away when I'm with 'her', just me and my camera. Playing with light & finding buried treasures meant to be discovered only through a camera lens. Can you believe I even forget to eat because I get all caught up into making photos?! Wish I could blame on that the extra pounds I've gained instead of all that cake πŸ€”πŸ˜… . | Glorious camera scarf-strap by @bloomtheory ✨|
Did I mention I store my dried petals on cups? I've been thinking on making them into a lazy type of 'popurrΓ­'; you know, spray on some lavender scent and call it a day, what do you all think, would it work? πŸ€”πŸ™ˆπŸ˜… . Also, thanks to @me_and_orla's Podcast I learned we own the #cupsinframe movement to Julia from @Humphreyandgrace 😡 -I had no idea! So here is to honor her and the 'why' she started to do it in the 1st place...πŸ˜™πŸ’• .
Every time I got out to "borrow" little snippets of wild greens growing outside I feel like a mischievous kid. Doing something she is not suppose to be doing πŸ™ˆπŸ˜… So of course I must give them a good use to make the "mischievousness" worth it! Hence this scene β˜•οΈπŸ˜πŸŒΏ . It's Monday's of Whimsey & Light on my Stories, with magical captures from: @tinasosna, @lindakris10ansenphoto @amourdavie & @equinoxl; go on, delight yourself & show them some looooove ;)x . #asecondofwhimsey
Feel like flying today... As a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders because guess what? I passed my Citizenship test with flying colors! Woot woot! πŸ˜†πŸ™ŒπŸΌ So I'm here feeling light as a butterfly, come and fly with me? I'll make you a pair of wings πŸ˜‰πŸ•Š . Thank you all for your wonderful messages, I'll go and reply to all bit by bit! πŸ€—πŸ’• #asecondofwhimsey
Have you ever made a 'big move'? Like moving away from the city or to a different country... Since I'm living here I feel a new version of myself has been flourishing, one that uses a paper crown as a 'thinking cap' to laugh at herself when needs to get inspired, that speaks & thinks in Espanglish and feels like she doesn't really quite belong... I'm taking my Citizenship test today, I've been studying for months about the U.S. Government & History and now have knowledge of things I can't even remember of the land that saw me grow πŸ€” { Yes, I know 😳 }. So, I'm casting a spell on me today, after this I'll tell myself to feel a little bit more like I belong because I've earned it 😊 *waves her wand & runs to hide* πŸ™ˆ . Hihi 😁 Happy Friday from the silly me, wish me luck please! x . #asecondofwhimsey
If I had a garden I'll probably take out my cozy-wood furniture and relax there with a pile of books, a warm drink & enjoy the wind tousling my hair while soft Cherry Blossom petals dance around me... just like this. Instead of loading them into the car, drive to the park and set up everything there just because I like recreating scenes that I wish for 😳. Wait, did I just killed the magic of this? Hope I didn't --too much πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ . Happy middle of the week, darlings!x #asecondofwhimsey

Colors...colors...colors... this is all I've been thinking for the past hours. I'm beginning to think in rainbows 😜 What's your fav color combo? Mine is turquoise & blush pink with a dash of gold. Shocking, isn't?! πŸ€”πŸ˜‚ . Happy Friday friends! Sending a πŸƒπŸ’—πŸƒyour way ;) #asecondofwhimsey

*Booyah!* the day I waved my magic wand to make the trees pink 😏 Ha! I wish. One can dream, isn't πŸ˜† Friday is almost here and I feel like the week is just flying through and I keep chasing after it; "waving my wand", hoping it will help me get things done faster. I'm sad to report: It's not working! πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚. How is yours going? . #asecondofwhimsey
Sigh... so pretty & calm, isn't? Well, It's a good thing you can't see the rest or you'll faint to the sight of my big mess πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ. {The mess chases me I tell ya 😝} . I’ve shared on my Stories magical captures from @poppyloveyou , @jeantinem & @elvirasstory; go on, delight yourself, show them some looooove ;)

My cupboards for petals. Yup, that's right. Every time I need a cup, I need to empty it first; as they ALL are filled with dried petals! Petals literally took over my fancy cups πŸ˜‚ It's a good thing they are mostly used for photos though. Now, where should they take over next? πŸ€” Any ideas are welcome 😁🌸 . Happy Friday friends!xx
What can I say. When I posted my last picture I thought I was welcoming many new friends that came after the previous post. Never in a million yrs thought @Instagram would feature me that day later. ✨ I'm still dancing on a fairy-dust-cloud today! ✨ So here is to all of you, because without you there wouldn't be a reason for me to exist here. You make it the special place this is, THANK YOU! *Throws pink blossom confetti* into an Alice in Wonderland inspired scene to celebrate πŸ˜‰πŸ€—πŸŽ‰ . #asecondofwhimsey
Special 'Hi' to all of you that just found your way to my little "fairytales", are you one of them? πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘‹πŸΌ . . Today let's dream about walking in the woods and suddenly finding a woodsy-whimsical-gem-of-a-cottage looking like this. Warm fire lit inside & the aroma of a freshly baked pie seducing us to go inside ...Okay, I just realized that might sound like a trap! Run Forest, run! πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚πŸ¦Š . I’ve shared on my Stories magical captures from @efimoshka, @thecafecat & @gingerlillytea; go on, delight yourself, show them some love ;) . Happy Monday you all!x
Collecting butterflies... πŸ¦‹βœ¨ Home is the place where my 'faffing' corner seats next to a window, a special place I didn't even had before Instagram, but oh boy; am I glad I have now ☺️. Someone else with a special corner in their home? You know, that place you must always have to 'slow down' & maybe take a picture or two πŸ˜‰. . #WHPhomesweethome #asecondofwhimsey
When you steal all the flowers around you. Shhh...πŸ™ŠπŸ™ˆ { Kidding. I didn't actually stole these, but hey that could have been easily me! πŸ˜‚}. Spring just asks for little snippets to be collected here and there, isn't? πŸ˜‰πŸŒΏ 🌸 Happy weekend friends!x . #asecondofwhimsey #rosenthalflowerupyourlife #hurrayforplay
Ahem. Hi dears! πŸ‘‹πŸΌ Lovely Eli @dy_ellie says I must write #20thingsaboutme {okay, she asked politely πŸ˜†} now.... thinking, thinking, thinking πŸ€”πŸ˜‘πŸ˜… . 1. I always take the most odd self portraits, I'm working on that. Hence this photo πŸ™ˆ 2. I smile like 'the kid' version of me, according to my mom that is. Always showing my teeth 😁 3. I was born in Guatemala City {AKA as The Land of Eternal Spring }. 4. Moved to Pennsylvania 4yrs ago. After I got married. 5. I met my American husband at colleague. 6. The first time he talked to me was only because his friend said "hey, let's go talk to those girls". πŸ™Š 7. We got married at the beach, with sand in our toes & the sunset kissing our skin. 8. Whenever people ask me what do I do, I just say I'm a Graphic Designer. 9. I have the need to hide the fact I have a Bachelor's in Advertising & a Master's D. In Digital Design. Worked as a Head of a Web Design & Multimedia Agency for yrs. Even after I moved here, I did it remotely. 10. I realized a year ago my passion is creating things with my hands. 11. I love making things for others as I think of it as a way to 'ignite circles of happiness'. 12. I'm becoming an Entrepreneur, working on having my online Design Shop, selling handmade goods. 13. I'm a self taught photographer (who's with me? πŸ™‹πŸ»). 14. 99.9% of the pics I share here I've made them all by myself; using a timer, a camera remote control & tripod. I shoot in manual mode. 15. I'm an introvert. Most of the time. 16. Husband, mom & my sister are my best friends. 17. Doughnuts 🍩 are my weakness. 18. If you want me to get chatty, give me a lollipop 🍭 { Sugar is my "alcohol" 🀣 }. 19. I'm working hard at making Jesus the center of my life. 20. There was a Caterpillar πŸ› on the wreath I'm wearing. About to be discovered 5min later after I took this pic πŸ˜‚ (can't believe I didn't notice 'him' when I made the wreath!) . A star ⭐️ in the forehead for you, if you managed to read ALL this!
