Holy cow, long time no talk! I did not anticipate me slacking on this blog in the month of August. A lot of it had to do with me having an internship where I worked 8am-5pm. I didn't always have the energy to come home and be on the computer. Now that my internship has officially ended, I'm happy to say that I'm spending all my energy into this blog again. It feels great to "be back"! There's a lot that I want to update you all on such as my new hair, recent adventures, and my professional life. I'm going to save those discussion though for some upcoming posts. I'm not sure if I've mentioned this in recent posts, but I upgraded to a full frame camera. This was my first time using the camera, and I'm in love with it! The quality is ten times better. Definitely worth every penny. Clearly I still need to use it a bit, because some of the pictures are over exposed. However, one reason for that is because I was taking my own photos. It definitely is hard to get that perfect shot when you're using a tripod and just guessing at how you look. You guys seriously have no idea how excited I am to have my photographer back....aka my boyfriend!
Didn't realize how cruddy my Target sandals are looking until looking at these photos. I mean I've had them since I was in 8th grade, so I guess I should get rid of them real soon. I actually did a post a little while back featuring this same silk blouse from Lilysilk but I love it so much, that I wanted to style it again. Yes, the style is pretty similar; a bodycon skirt, and statement necklace. However, I think this outfit is more of a neutral look. This is definitely one that can be transitioned into the fall with some booties. 

Clearly my camera settings weren't perfect, but I'm just in awe at the scenery at this location. The greenery is just so luscious! These photos were actually taken on the day of the eclipse. Unfortunately I wasn't able to see anything too mesmerizing. When I took my lunch break it was still cloudy out and nothing was happening though. Everyone was posting some gorgeous photos though. Oh, and it was so relaxing to be at this location with no one else around. But while I was in the middle of posing, this lady and her dog came by. I immediately, stopped what I was doing lol. She asked if I was shooting senior pictures. I immediately said yes...
I've had this statement necklace for a couple of years. I don't wear it as often as I thought I would. I love though how it picks up the black and white from the skirt. 

I absolutely adore the keyhole detailing on this  navy silk blouse.   It adds such a darling touch! My coupon code is still valid if you're wanting to purchase from Lilysilk. If you use the coupon code katekoutures at Lilysilk's checkout, you'll recieve 16% off and a free eye mask!

  8. Good day
    Read my testimony! Getting ex back after a breakup.
    My boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com call him on: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.


Your comment is much appreciated! I look forward to responding. Have a lovely day doll!
