One Amazon jumpsuit that has me jumping for joy...


One of my latest favorite things has been shopping for clothes on Amazon Prime!  Lately I've been kind of last minute with my outfit choices...  So you can't really beat 2-day shipping!  And I don't even have to leave my house to do it.


That's where this jumpsuit comes in!  Less than $20 and here in 2 days. Did the trick, if you ask me!


I actually put all my Amazon faves together on one shoppable storefront!  Almost all the items are Prime and are separated into categories according to what I use them for.  We have clothing, foodtography styling props, books, and more!  With plans to add other things soon.  If you shop through my Amazon Storefront, I do make a small commission on every purchase, which helps me to be able to take the time to keep my blog up and running!

And for this gorgeous bag?  Not from Amazon, but just as easy to shop - it's from Wantable!  You can take the quiz here on their site and get 7 curated pieces in what they call a "Style Edit" sent right to your door.  Take them out and try them on, choose what you like, send back what you don't.  I definitely kept this gorgeous brown handbag!  It came with 2 smaller pouches inside and I do love all things organization.

Check out Art in Bloom this year at the Milwaukee Art Museum!

A true sign of spring?  The Milwaukee Art Museum's Art in Bloom event!  It's where floral art mimics fine art - floral designers from all over the area compete to create arrangements based on pieces throughout the Milwaukee Art Museum.  It is always a sight to see!
Great for flower lovers and art lover alike.

Check out some of the photos I snapped last night while attending the Blooms and Bubbles event!  These are just a few of the arrangements.  See the rest for yourself in person!


Art in Bloom is so impressive every year!  You definitely need to see it for yourself because photos just can't even do it justice!  The event runs from 4/11-4/14, so you have the whole weekend to plan a trip.

Let me know what you think!


Baking with Addison, a mini-shoot!


Addy is getting to the age where she can actually pay attention long enough to complete an activity, woohoo!

So we thought it would be a cute idea to have her "bake cookies" during a little mini shoot.  It was inspired by a photo of Maya and I when we were young, taken in the same spot in the same kitchen!

She did all the steps herself!  Rolled out the dough, cut the shapes, decorated the cookies.  She maybe didn't complete any of these tasks...but she went through the motions and enjoyed herself while doing it!

Anyways, they turned out to be cute photos.  I love having a little model to try out my photoshoot ideas!



Blogger Tea Party with Henesy House

Milwaukee Blogger Tea Party on Midwest Mermaid Olivia
Milwaukee Blogger Tea Party on Midwest Mermaid Olivia

January.

One of the most bland of months in my opinion.  Not the prettiest either, since all the foliage that was once blossoming with color is now long gone.  And if it snows... that's only pretty for a couple days until it turns brown and slushy!

 So this year, I decided to do everything I could to fill the month with fun ways to create content for Instagram and the blog!  I noticed that I struggle a lot with content in the winter as opposed to the countless photo opportunities that I encounter during the other season.  One of those content ideas for January was to participate in Lauren Henesy's (of Henesy House) styled tea party blogger shoot.  Lauren is known in Milwaukee for creating the most lavish styled spreads themed for each season.  When she announced a tea party theme, I knew I needed to join in!  With Brian (of Mattinson Photography) capturing the day, I already knew how amazing the content would be.

The vendors who helped make this tea party fabulous are as follows:

Florals: Liz Kiesow
