Where ONA Goes with Endlessly Enraptured

When deciding what I needed for my trip with Da Vinci Wines last year, I knew that I needed a new camera bag. You see, usually Cory carries around all our gear, but I was invited on this trip solo as one of their Story Tellers. I needed a bag that would carry all my gear comfortably...

Pip’s Original

Jade and I got our first taste of mini-doughnut bliss a little over six years ago on our first trip as a couple to Seattle. We were still in college, still working terrible part time jobs, still not living the way we wanted to, but man were we in love. We planned that trip for months, saving up our part time wages so we could...

Around the Royal Academy of Art

Walking the streets of London was like no experience I have ever had in a big city. Granted I have only been to a few cities (Portland, Seattle, Los Angelas), but London's streets had extra bustle in them. It wasn't the kind of rushed activity though that one would want to immediately escape. No, at the time I simply reveled in the moments of seeing...

London From Above

Though I have always had a slight fear of heights, I have never had any issues with going on ferris wheels. I figured that these big man made contraptions had to be at least half way safe since people were riding them constantly. I remember my first time in one at the county fair, going up with my brother and looking out over the fairgrounds....

All of these beautiful colors that fall is swirling around us has got me thinking, I haven't painted in long time. Even before I met Jade, painting was something I would do every now an then to release some of my pent up aggression or just to relax and see where the color took me. It seems Jade is feeling a little creatively sparked lately...

Our First Walk Around London

The second day of our trip was really our first full day in London. When we arrived we were just simply so sleep deprived and exasperated, we pretty much just had to lay in bed in our suite and slowly fade into unconsciousness. When we awoke, we ordered coffee and tea. Soaking in the beauty and luxury of our suite while sipping on tea and...

Afternoon Tea at The Lanesborough

This post was sponsored by The Lanesborough, a St. Regis Hotel. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram. Our second day in London was even better than the first. After having slept for fourteen hours straight in attempt to overcome our jet lag, we awoke to streams of sunshine peaking through our windows and the gentle, murmured sounds of the city outside. We expected cloudiness and fog...

A Gracious Welcome

Our time in London was so completely extraordinary that it's hard to believe that it actually happened. This was my first trip out of the continental United States and I know for fact not my last. Though I believe I may have now ruined all future stays elsewhere because of this trip. It was so lavish, luxurious and full of beauty that I can't even...

We have a few posts coming up this weekend on the incredible runway shows we saw during fashion week. These photographs are what we wore on day two of the festivities.
