A Landscape Before and After

I'm gearing up for my all-girls vacation that starts Saturday, finishing off my DIY Christmas presents, and getting in some extra shifts at work to cover the expenses of said vacation and presents! Needless to say it's taken away from my favourite hobby... BUT I have been able to get my hands on my manfriends fancy GoPro camera. It's limited to fisheye photos but takes really amazing HD video. I'm planning on trying out my video skills on my vacation. My friends and I are going away to Canmore, Alberta from the 18th to 22nd. I've google-mapped all the thrift stores, booked our spa day, and am trying to convince myself I like skiing.

In the meantime, I have a kind of weather before and after. The summer beauty had long faded by the time I started blogging a few months ago, so I didn't get to share what summer looks like here. Though I believe it sometimes, rural Alberta is not just bleak white fields! This is also a preview of what the GoPro can do (both pictures are taken with it). I miss all that yellow!




  1. WOW that is such a difference! The flowers are so beautiful.

  2. Oooo yay I can't wait for Summer Chesterfield!! And I SO want an HD video camera, get lots of practice in for me ;)

  3. Those photos are stunning! I love fish eye effects.. but those colours are glorious. :)

  4. Pretty!

    I just wanted to stop by and say that I am loving your blog! I found it recently through Selective Potential, and I'm so glad I did. I'm also a curvy girl, and your beautiful pics are super inspiring to me!

    I also wanted to say thanks for dressing appropriately for the weather. I'm from Colorado and I currently go to school in Boston, and it gets really cold in both places. Normally I live in jeans, sweaters and wellies, but you've inspired me to create looks that are both warm and stylish. Thanks!


  5. I love this!! It looks so lovely in the summertime, it's pretty in the winter too, just two completely different settings.
    That trip sounds like soo much fun! Take lots of pictures! I'm going to Banff for saturday and sunday this week, so im pretty stoked :)
