Photography: Red and Pink Theme

February 5, 2019

The month of February usually revolves around a lot of pink and red, as Valentine’s Day is a huge inspiration. Personally, I take the stance of not really caring too much for Valentine’s Day. It’s not because I’m single, so much as it is the fact that regardless on if you are in a relationship or not, you should be showing your love for the ones you care about in your life all year.

However, there are a couple of good things that come from Valentine’s Day. One, being that the very next day, usually all the Valentine’s Day chocolate is 50% off. Two, I love the color scheme for Valentine’s Day. Usually, we see the usual red, pink, and white in many different shades. Or we will see the common pastels that we will see again once Easter comes around.

My Pink & Red Photos

I am very much an amateur photographer, and I have a long way to go. However, I thought I would share some of my favorite pink and red things that I have taken photos of over the past couple years.

Link to my Love Themed Pinterest board – Red & Pink

My latest project on Pinterest is my LOVE board. The goal is to stick to my favorite pink and/or red photographs and put them together to create another great inspirational board. My favorites are Holiday boards or Home Decor boards. However, I do appreciate color themed boards, because sometimes it can be incredibly satisfying and inspirational to see a collection of the same color in one space. With that in mind, some of my other favorite inspirational boards are below, and I have them linked to their respective Pinterest creators.

What are some of your favorite Pink and Red themed boards on Pinterest? If you have color-themed boards of your own, be sure to share them below. I need some new ones to follow. Also, if you have a color-themed Instagram, I would love to see that too.

I’m really enjoying my Pinterest right now, and I have been putting in a lot of work on developing it. This time last year I had averaged about 100,000 monthly views, and I now average about 2.8 million monthly views on my Pinterest.

Pink Lily Boutique Haul – Fall 2018 (part 2)

October 10, 2018

This post is NOT sponsored by Pink Lily. This is my own opinion about my personal online shopping experience here. 

I know this is a little soon from my last Pink Lily Haul, but they had a big sale the other day and I couldn’t help myself. I actually had 2 separate orders. The first one was on the sale day, and I bought four things. The second order came the next day and was kind of an impulse buy. It was a mystery bag that was only $40, and it comes with three randomly selected articles of clothing.

The First Order

I got two shirts and two cardigans. I wanted to get some things that would work for Fall, and I’m kind of obsessed with the whole red and blue colors for Fall. I have to say that the chunky green sweater is extremely comfortable, and I can tell it’s going to keep me warm when we get some colder weather. The long sleeved red shirt is a different material than I’m used to, but it is still pretty comfortable and really pretty. The two cardigans are essentially the same item, but just different colors. They also have elbow patches which add a little cute touch to each cardigan.

The Second Impulse Order

I got an email the next morning talking about the Fall mystery bag, and after reading into it, I bought it pretty quickly. It’s only $40 with a $6 fixed shipping rate. You’re getting three items four $46, when they usually would be 30+ dollars a piece. The mystery factor is the only risky thing. You never know what you are going to get. You do know that it’ll be in your size, as you select that before purchasing the bundle. You could get Summer clothes even though it’s Fall now, or you can get pants or maxi-dresses which are pretty risky if you are a bit shorter.

I was pretty pleased with my mystery purchase. The two shirts are really comfortable, and they work relatively for Fall/Winter. The pants I am not quite sure about yet. They are high waisted which is nice, but they are a bit long on the legs. I’m only 5’2 so that wasn’t unexpected that they would be a little big on me. I might be able to hem them, or I might be able to wear them if I have the right heel. We’ll see what happens.

Overall, I am very much pleased with my purchases from Pink Lily. Online shopping can be a hit or miss, so far the few experiences I’ve had at Pink Lily have been great.

Did I Complete My June Photo Challenge?

July 10, 2018

I did it, I did it! I managed to complete all the photos for my June photo challenge. At the beginning of last month, I made the decision to start a June photo challenge, and I was to post a themed photo each day of the month. I have tried a photo challenge before, and it didn’t really go that well. I finally realized that if I really wanted to get one done, I should come up with the challenge myself, and see if that motivates me more.

What Happened During The Photo Challenge

The whole challenge went by without any major issues, but I did run into a snag here and there. I decided to do the photo challenge on my Insta stories instead of posting on my actual Instagram, and that worked relatively well. I saved each day to a highlight(which is still on my Insta profile if you want to go see it), and I occasionally forgot to save it to the highlight on a few days. Luckily my Instagram is set up to backup my photos and stories to my phone so I was able to add them, but if I do this again, I need a better reminder to do that.

I only missed posting on one day, but that was only because I purchased the game Jurassic World Evolution. I got addicted very quickly, and I played the game for about 10 hours straight that day. But I did make up for it, and I posted two photos the next day.

Overall, I really enjoyed this photo challenge. I had something to look forward to everyday, and it was another way to express my love for capturing moments in my life. Yes, I’m most definitely not a professional photographer, but I still love all my photos.

I did have someone participate in the challenge with me this month, and I have to say I absolutely loved her photos. Her name is Chloe and her IG: @photographycnp She was so creative with each themed day, and really kept up with the challenge. I think everyone should go check out her Instagram page, and the rest of her photos from the challenge. Below, I have some of my favorites from her photos. It was hard to narrow down from her photos, but these five really caught my eye.

Would I do this again? Absolutely! My main focus for this upcoming month is going to be my Instagram theme, but I might do another photo challenge in August. If you have any suggestions on what challenge I should do, or you created a challenge and want me to try it, let me know in the comments below.

30-Day Photo Challenge – Littlebit and Patch

May 31, 2018

Hello everyone!

Another 30-day photo challenge, really? Yes, really. I love photo challenges! Whenever I feel like I need something new to look forward to, a photo challenge(or a writing one) always helps me gather new inspiration from my surroundings. Because I am in the process of creating a theme on my Instagram, I plan on completing this challenge on my Instagram story. I feel like that would be the best way for me to keep track of each day, and not interrupt my attempt to establish a theme on my Instagram feed. Which is currently a mixture of black and white and color(it’s a work in progress, okay?). Below I have a 30-day challenge, and I am using it for June, but you can apply it to other 30-day months if you want.

Say Hello to Littlebit and Patch

March 16, 2018

Hello everyone!

My name is Anna Maxwell, and this is my new blog Littlebit and Patch. This is not my first rodeo when it comes to blogging. I’ve had a few blogs in the past, my most recent was called Scribble Serendipity. I had a few reasons why I decided to move onto a new blog, but it was mainly due to my hosting. I had trouble with the blog host that I was using for my previous blog, but I can get into that in a later blog post.

What I’ve Learned From Blogging

It took me quite a while to come up with what I wanted my new blog to be. One thing I’ve learned from blogging is that it is a lot harder than it seems to figure out what exactly you want your blog to be. For me, I thought you could only be one thing, but I found myself wanting to branch out and do more. My blogs kind of ended up all over the place, and I feel like that’s what led them to fail. Or at least, one of the reasons.

With that in mind, I decided that for this new blog, I wanted to focus on two main topics: Lifestyle and Travel. I feel like with this setup, I can branch into other topics, but it keeps me focused on the main niche topics.

Why Littlebit and Patch?

As for the name, my inspiration for Littlebit and Patch is none other than my furbabies. Patch, my 14(almost 15)-year-old black labrador is a sweet old-man dog, and Littlebit, my 13-14ish fluffy white cat is a spoiled princess with heterochromia(two different colored eyes). While my furbabies are getting older, they have been such a big part of my life, and such a big inspiration for me.

My Goal

My goal for this blog is to enjoy it through my writing, photography, and experiences. I hope you all enjoy it just as much, and I can’t wait to start this journey.

Let me know in the comments below what you would like to see from me on this blog, and be sure to follow my Instagram for regular photos of my furbabies and my life.
