"Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower" | Although summer seems to be the favorite season for most, fall has so much beauty to itself. Fall coming upon us is incredibly bittersweet, since winter is right behind, but I can’t wait to enjoy the fall weather and the falling of leaves ๐Ÿ‚๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒž | Photography by Ashley Marie / Makeup and Hair Styling by Ali Kraus / Designs by Emma Witte

"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles." ~ Audrey Hepburn | Beauty isn’t just clothes and makeup. It’s your personality, and how you carry yourself. Happiness is beautiful- and I strongly believe that all happy girls are the prettiest girls.

Meet my Grandpee- the most hilarious 87 year old guy you’ll ever meet. Although his shenanigans drive my family up the wall, I love every bit of him. Whether it’s tracking him down when he spontaneously travels across the state, or hearing him explain his shenanigans with his group of friends, I’ll always love to hear his crazy stories. And yes, he is trying to relive his 80s hairstyle with this random wig. Love you Gramps!

Fall in love with yourself, and others will follow. | Here’s a completely unedited photo of myself. My freckles, my pale skin, my greasy hair. It took me a long time to embrace my skin, to embrace the spots on my face. But when I did, my whole outlook  on how you treat and view your body changed. But that’s the way we all are- and that is what makes us beautiful in each and every way. You don’t need to alter your skin to change it’s color, you don’t need to cover up your freckles, moles, or birthmarks. Embrace it. And believe me, you’ll be a lot happier. #SpreadTheLove | Photography by Leah Pedler
