Life Lately + Link Love #8

Life Lately: 


It hasn't been too long since my last LL+LL post, and not too much has been going on, but here I am posting this anyway. The next few weeks are going to be crazy-busy. We have a lot to do before winter comes (which is pretty soon!), I have a few projects that I'm working on, and my mom is coming to visit from Florida for a week, which I'm very excited about since I haven't seen her in over a year. She's never been to Maine during autumn before, so I have lots of things planned (like Acadia National Park)!

This week I posted my first style post ever, and thanks so much to those of you who gave support and feedback! I'm really looking forward to posting more style posts, I already have so many planned. I've also been updating Poppyseeder's Facebook page more often and it would be great if you could give it a "like"!

Another thing that I'm excited about...I finally got a new camera! For almost 8 years I've been using a Canon Rebel XS, which has served me well, but I don't think it's going to last much longer. It's very beaten up on the outside and it shorts out occasionally. Spencer actually surprised me with a new Canon EOS 77D because I was refusing to admit that my XS is on its way out. He was right, a camera upgrade was a bit overdue. I haven't been able to play around with it very much yet, but I can already tell that I love it.

Link Love:


  • Maria has been posting so many amazing Halloween makeup looks lately, but this one is by far my favorite. She turned herself into The Nightman from "The Nightman Cometh" episode of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia-- my absolute favorite episode from the whole series.  
  •  I have really been enjoying this list from SinĂ©ad of 5 relaxing YouTube streams. I've always wanted to find this sort of content on YouTube but I didn't know where to start, this list helped a lot!
  • Charlie documented her time at Himeji Castle in Japan and I've officially added Himeji Castle to my to-do list...if I ever visit Japan. It's so beautiful!
  • There goes Melina again, making me jealous of her adventures. See what she got up to in Costa Rica! 
  • I used to be a Game of Thrones superfan but I didn't even watch season 7 till a couple weeks the season finale-- which was previously unheard of for me. Andini perfectly explained why she stopped watching and we share quite a few opinions on the direction of the show and the treatment of one of the characters. #TeamSansaForever
