TWO GOOD THINGS
I am super excited about this post for 2 reasons. First of all I get to be part of an amazing project with Hallhuber again this year, which raises money and awareness for breast cancer (see last year’s post HERE). As you guys know, October is breast cancer awareness month, and for the second year in a row, Hallhuber has created a pretty silk scarf, for which 25€ of each sold scarf go directly towards charity. And on a more personal note: girls, please go out and get regular check-ups, even if you think you’re still too young! We’ve had a case of breast cancer in my family, so ever since I was 16 I’ve been getting regular examinations, just to make sure I am healthy. I’d rather go to the doctor one too many times, than when it is too late!
Aaaaand the second reason that I am excited about this post are actually the photos. For the launch of The Daily Dose, my parents surprised me with an AMAZING present. They set me up with my own mini photo studio and it arrived this week! Basically what it is, is a set of 2 studio flashes, that I can use to shoot anything from outfits to food (be sure to check out tomorrow’s Bubbly Friday for the first studio pictures), even when it is dark outside. Kathi and I were really worried about the lack of daylight during the winter months, since it would make our schedules almost impossible with us both having “regular” jobs. But now, we can also shoot in the middle of the night and have pretty lighting! So these shots were a first run, which my baby sister took, and I am already beyond stoked for many more shoots! Feels like we’re really getting professional here ♥
