Free spirited, picturesque, and all around life goals are how I would describe the work of Scotland-based photographer Richard Gaston. One of my personal philosophies is to absorb as much beauty as this spectacular planet has to offer, and he does an excellent job capturing that idea. His work features views taken from adventures in Iceland, Norway, Morocco, and plenty of other visually amazing places. More of his work can be found here. If you can stand the travel envy, I highly suggest spending some time getting lost in the vivid snapshots of this amazing Earth.

I've been following the work of Tamara Lichtenstein for years through her tumblr and flickr accounts and I've never found myself not amazed by the shots she captures. Her photos are always whimsical and feminine, but without being overly cutesy. Each shot reminds me of playing dress up with my friends and capturing snapshots with an instant film camera to paste into diaries long since lost. If you haven't seen her work with Urban Outfitters or Converse, take a look at her website for some instant inspiration.
Hello blog readers! Today I just wanted to share with you the source of my inspiration lately. The illustrations by Henn Kim are so simple, yet full of feeling. Every new piece of their work I come across feels relatable in an extraordinarily beautiful way.
Hello dear blog readers!
And happy early Thanksgiving to you all! My most sincere hope is that you all have something to feel exceptionally grateful for. This year I'll be giving my thanks to our glorious planet while basking in tonight's full moon.
The Mourning Moon is what the Pagans called November's full moon. It's the last moon we'll observe before the winter solstice, and it was traditionally used as a time for letting go and mourning. The emphasis placed on gratitude this time of year sets a perfect tone for using the moon's glow to rid yourself of baggage; whether it's a bad habit, material junk, or deep emotional unrest. I encourage you all to take tonight to sift through the items you no longer find necessary and perhaps donate them to someone in need. Tonight is also a perfect time to perform a simple cleansing ritual to freshen up your home and soul and to take in all that you are grateful for. Play some of your favorite music, tidy up your home, and don't forget to stop and admire the bright, illuminating glow in the sky tonight.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday and an inspiring winter season.

Woodland creatures seem to be rising in popularity these days and it’s easy to see why. They’re adorable and make me dream of wilderness adventures in the crisp autumn air.
Vermont painter Amber Alexander brings these creatures to life in a very special way.
Her Etsy shop is full of the most beautiful watercolor paintings of foxes, owls, bears, hedgehogs, rabbits, hawks and a few other creatures you’ll just have to discover for yourself.
