Little Red Riding Hood

So I took an accidental hiatus. I just needed to reset myself, and get to where I was feeling good enough to get in front of the camera again. But then I found these photos from before all the snow, and decided that they needed to be posted.

I’m a huge fan of fairy tales, and found this coat in the back of my closet when getting dressed and immediately thought of little red riding hood. I’m actually pretty sure I was heading off to my parents house, so that’s even better. I can’t for the life of me remember why I stopped wearing it because it’s about 7 years old and I haven’t worn it in about 4 years.

I absolutely adore these photos. It’s one of the perks of being married to a guy who knows his way around a camera.

Also I kinda really miss the days when it was warm enough to be outside, let alone take photos like this.

Stylish Sunday’s: Basically

I never really get a great start off to the year, because I’m always really sick until midspring when it starts to warm up. So for a little while longer it’s going to be just stylish sunday’s posts until flu season is over.

I think I took these last wednesday, I wasn’t to sick, but I was still feeling really lazy.

Wattpad and After

So if you’ve been on the internet really at all the last couple of years, I’m sure that you’ve managed to hear of Fanfic, however if you haven’t, Fanfic or Fan Fiction is where fans write fictional stories about either characters from movies, books, or their favorite celebrities. Some of these stories are decent, some are so horrible you cringe, and then there are stories that make you realize that person should be a writer. Fanfic that deserves to be published.

That’s where websites like Wattpad come in. You can post your stories on Wattpad from your phone, computer or tablet and almost instantly get feedback from your readers. Or if you’re a lover of Fanfic, you can search out stories inspired by your favorite celebrities or characters. Or stories about magic, vampires, or anything else you can dream of.

Anna Todd is one of Wattpads success stories, her fanfic inspired by One Directions Harry Styles had so many readers that she got the attention of Gallery Books which is an off shoot of Simon & Schuster who published the novel for sale on October 21st 2014. Prior to that it had been garnered over 1 billion views on wattpad. Pretty amazing for a story written almost entirely from her phone.

I haven’t had a chance to read After yet but I’m really curious to see what it’s like. I will be posting a full review when I’ve finished it.
