Wednesday Favorites #3 (and a few updates)

personaLblog_weds3.jpg

It's been six months since i've updated this blog with anything. So, I thought as a new post I would start with something easy and share a few things that I love and give a few updates on life. 


Let's start with some updates.

+ We adopted a new puppy, named Ripley. We think she is a boxer/black lab mix. (-->)

+ I've been freelancing for a full-time for a year now! I can't believe how fast this past year has gone.

+ I'm crossing a major thing off my 'things to do this year list' from the start of the year.
I booked a trip to Europe this November, for a week! I'm so excited and I can't wait.

+ After living here in SC for 6 plus months, I've come to the conclusion that I'm more of a city person than I thought I was and I actually miss Ohio. 

+ I'm reviving Ink & Arrows and Issue 11 will be releasing soon.

Pendulum Pilsner by Raven Beer (x) // I'm not much of a beer drinker but I had to grab a six pack of Pendulum Pilsner just because of the artwork. (As a bonus the beer is pretty good so it wasn't waste!)

Tomb Raider Archives 1-4 by Top Cow // Comics aren't my thing. But recently I found one of my original TR comics from when I was little and it sparked my interest. So I went out and grabbed the 4 archive collection books with all the comics.

Wednesday Favorites #2

alucas_feb_wed_favs_low-res_1.jpg

Since moving at the beginning of February, i've been loving all things home related. So, below are a few things i've bought for my room. Also, this month i've had the chance to get back to designing editorial pages and I couldn't be happier so i'm sharing a my favorite magazine and book at the moment. 

alucas_newdesk.png

Wood Farmhouse Desk World Market 
I was in need of a new desk, badly. My previous desk was a glass drawing table and it bowing when I had my iMac on it. But this desk is sturdy and as a bonus it's wider, so I more room. (x)

alucas_poe.png

Paddywax Candles Library Collection Poe
My two favorite things; candles and Edgar Allan Poe. (x)



 

alucas_necklace.png

Double Horn Necklace The Pretty Eclectic
Not home related but I wanted to share anyway. I've been on the hunt for one of these necklaces for so long. So when I found this one I had to buy it. (x)

alucas_whatsgabbycooking.png

What's Gabby Cooking Gabby Dalkin
The recipes in What’s Gaby Cooking are fresh, simple and easy to follow. I love that the recipes were real and not overly fancy or complicated. They were for everyday meals and snacks. I also enjoyed the personal introduction to the cookbook and the page about kitchen staples. I think that page will be handy for those who are just starting out cooking at home or just looking for a kitchen refresh.  *A bonus, for me anyway, was the beautiful design of the cookbook and the photography. They went well together and didn't distract from the recipes. Review copy provided NetGalley. Book Avalible April 17th 2018. (x)

alucas_chair.png

Geller Modern Dining Chair Target
I wanted a new desk chair and I came across this when shopping and thought it went with my desk. Honestly, it's a bit uncomfortable to sit on for a long period but that forces me to actually get away from my desk. (x) 

alucas_dandossantos.png

Dead Heat Print Dan Dos Santos
The covers of the Mercy Thompson Series and the Alpha and Omega Series (Above) by Patricia Briggs are some of my favorites. The cover illustrator Dan Dos Santos has prints of  each cover and I had to grab the one above and the Silence Fallen cover. (x)(x)

J.R.R. Tolkien Issue Faeire Magazine
Anything Tolkien and fantasy related you have my attention 100%. This is a beautiful magazine filled with interesting articles and it's made with such passion. (x)

Playlist I'm Loving

You can never go wrong with Led Zeppelin. 

Lee Family // Family Session

In December, I had the chance to photograph my friend Megan and her family. We met up around sunset at Crocker Park, an outdoor mall like plaza, in Westlake, Ohio. We took some photographs on this little train that drove through the streets of the plaza because Jack, Megan and John's son loves trains. Plus, we had some time to waste as we wanted the sun to go down a bit so we could get all the pretty winter lights.
