I hope you all had a nice, relaxing holiday! I’ve been enjoying the past two weeks with family in Pennsylvania and I’m headed back to California today. I will do my best to get back on a regular blogging schedule. At this point I’m around 14 weeks and the nausea is still there but a lot more manageable. I’m still on my medication but hoping to go off of it soon. I tried going without it for a day or two during break but I lost my appetite and started throwing up again so I went back on. I’m really hoping I feel better during the second trimester! *fingers crossed*
In the meantime, I’ve rounded up what I got for Christmas this year! I have the hardest time writing a Christmas list because I feel like I already have everything I need so I usually just end up asking for gift certificates, clothes or camera supplies for blogging!
I’m really excited for this 85mm lens. I haven’t tried it out yet but it should be a great lens for portraits/street photography. I already have a 55mm lens but the 85mm should give a little more blur or bokeh in the background. I also reeallyy needed a new tripod because the one I have is literally taped together and still falling apart. Here’s to better photos in 2017!
I was also really excited when I found these Kelsi Dagger shoes. I’ve had my eye on the Everlane Babo for awhile because it can be worn as a loafer or slip on. And this Kelsi Dagger pair can be worn the same ways but for a fraction of the price!
Now onto Flashback Fashion Friday! Sorry that we took a break without notice the last two weeks. I’ve kind of been out of it with this pregnancy and the holidays. But here’s a look from last year at this time! I can’t believe last year is now 2016! Yikes! I definitely recommend this puffy vest if you are looking for a light vest without a lot of bulk. It’s perfect for California winters and it folds up into a little pouch which makes it great for travel.

So many great gifts! I’m hoping to get some new camera supplies this year too, I hope you feel better soon, and get to enjoy your second trimester.

I hope you feel better the next trimester. I had to stay on medication the entire time with both my pregnancies to be able to keep food down and I hope you don’t go through the same. 🙁
I have that exact 85mm lens and Love it! It is my go-to lens.
Safe travels and Happy New Year!

Some fabulous gifts there! I hope you soon feel better.
Looks like you got some fabulous gifts this year! I’ve been thinking about getting an 85mm lens, though I’d really like to invest in a quality zoom lens. Of course then I’d be too scared to put it on the tripod!
What great gifts! That camera tripod and lens look amazing! I also love those shoes! Perfect for Spring!
