Movie Themed Engagement Photos

After perusing through some of my favorite wedding blogs for some time now, I have seen my fair share of engagement photos based on popular movies. There aren’t usually any that melt my heart (except maybe this snapshot of a Harry Potter one,) but who am I kidding? I’ve got a soft spot for all things wedding-related.

The Sketchbook Project 2012

I’m not exactly sure what the Sketchbook Project 2012 world tour is all about right now, but what I do know is that it is a project that connects creative artists and designers from around the globe. This video above was made by Christina Paone and is entitled, “Sometime in the Next 50 Years…”

It is absolutely beautiful. Not only is the entire design structure of it just captivating, but being able to see her sketch and paint through her goals is moving because I believe it’s something that resonates with all of us.

San Francisco: Food + Places + Things

So I just realized that my first post about San Francisco was a little bit weak. It was all sorts of reflective-ness and such, but I didn’t even go into detail about the things that matter the most: the food and the sights and everything we did in between. San Francisco is a beautiful city. It has so much character and color. People are full of energy almost all of the time and being there for four days was an adventure like I’ve never experienced before. Many friends told me before leaving on my trip that San Francisco is a lot like Seattle. I disagree. It’s in a city, sure, and it’s near water, but other than those two things, nothing else stood out to me that would support the cities being similar. If you’re making a visit soon, just stop – and look up at the buildings and the structure of it all. There’s also way more things to do there than in Seattle. In fact, I’m probably going to need to plan another trip again soon to complete it all.

On our first day, we picked up lunch at a popular deli called Arguello. We took our sandwiches up to the old army barracks overlooking Golden Gate and battled the intense winds as I tried to nom my sandwich desperately needing a hair tie. Afterwards, we just decided to embrace the wind. The photograph above is just a still of my girlfriends running with it for five minutes.

Chalkboard Map Decal

I haven’t done as much traveling as I would have liked at my age nor am I a huge fan of geographic items, but I absolutely love maps. I am a huge fan of recycled globes and printed maps and I usually try to showcase them on the blog when I come across them. This chalkboard wall decal is a pricey $159, but allows you to update and modify your own text to the map whenever you please. Also, think of how sleek this decal would look on the wall of your office above your desk, in a bedroom, or a living room. It’s a natural conversation starter.

Dianna Agron for Charlie’s Secret Garden

Dianna Agron is an actress that happens to be a mystery to me. She plays a character in a popular television show, but no matter what happens, I cannot relate to her character. I can’t even root for her most of the time and I’m not sure why. It’s probably because even when you think she’s turned to the good side, all she ever wants to be a darn cheerleader again. Even though she remains a mystery, she is still someone that surprises me with her talent. Dianna, in real life (I wouldn’t know, but I can imagine) is not similar to Quinn Fabray. Outside the halls of William McKinley High School, Dianna started a website called “You, Me & Charlie” and in this new photo shoot for it, Agron got real hip.

Inspired by one of my favorite novels, “The Secret Garden,” Dianna and friends collaborated on a photo series surrounding the story’s images.
