Shutterfly Giveaway – CLOSED

shutterfly giveaway - drifter and the gypsy blog

If you know me, you know I take a lot of pictures. A LOT. As in there are probably a few tens of thousands of images saved on my computer (I need to clean it out). Needless to say, on our family vacation to Hawaii, it wasn’t hard for me to accumulate well over 1,000 pictures.

Over the years, we’ve developed a family tradition of compiling our favorite photos into a Shutterfly photo book. This particular photo book was an extra special treat because it was an anniversary present to my parents (our trip to Hawaii was a celebration of their 25th wedding anniversary!). It was also a great way to store our last memories of 2013.

With the start of a new year, people tend get nostalgic and reflect on the previous year’s events. Old friends are called, family is visited, and trips down memory lane are taken. A photo album is a great way to organize those moments into one convenient location.

Shutterfly and I are giving you a way to store your favorite memories by offering one 8×8 20-page hardcover photo book plus free shipping to one Drifter & the Gypsy reader!

Inspired by Sasha

inspired by sasha - drifter and the gypsy blog

I’m constantly inspired by different things: songs, books, nature, people, art, food, and well you get the point. I love this video Free People did with model Sasha Pivavorova. Ever since this photo shoot Sasha did with her daughter, I’ve been kind of obsessed with her modeling work.

Before I saw the video, I had no idea she was an artist too.

The January ’14 Free People catalog stars Sasha Pivavorova and was shot by her husband, Igor Vishnyakov. A model, a mother, a wife, a muse, and what a beautiful, beautiful soul.

Black and White

Channeling a little Wednesday Addams here with this black suspender skirt and white blouse combo. I just wish my hair was long enough to put into braids to complete the look.

To change it up a bit, I shot these in black and white. I have to laugh, it kind of looks like I’m a prairie girl on the frontier or something.

Sally Scott Autumn 2013 Collection

The last time I blogged about Sally Scott was last winter. I recently discovered her Autumn 2013 Collection (a little behind the times, yes), but couldn’t resist sharing it here.

When I was little, on rainy days, my dad would take me down to the library. Let me tell you, the library is a most magical, wonderful place. I’d spend hours there poring over books, lost in my own world, and without any concept of time. These images remind me of those sweet sweet days that I’ll never forget.

The sunrise at Mount Haleakala

mount haleakala - drifter and the gypsy blog

One of the highlights of our trip to Maui was seeing the sunrise at Mount Haleakala. We had heard about the sunrise tours you could take to the mountain, but then we found out you had to wake up at 2:00 am for a 3:00 am pickup and it’s really cold at the top and we were kind of meh about it after that. But then we read awesome reviews on Yelp and decided to go for it.

3:00 am pickup time!

The mountain has a 10,000 elevation, so when you look out you actually look down at clouds. It’s the neatest feeling ever.

I love these pictures of us. It was so cold and windy up there; these pictures perfectly describe how we felt. There were so many people there with cameras and tripods set up. A few people were making time lapse videos, which is pretty cool. We took so many pictures, we could probably make a stop motion out of them or something!

Getting up really wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be (and I got to sleep for most of the bus ride up the mountain haha). Overall I’m just really glad we decided to do it! Have any of my Maui friends (or travelers) seen the sunrise at Mount Haleakala?

Time capsule apartment

time capsule apartment - drifter and the gypsy blog

Hi guys! Well it’s 2014 now and to me that just doesn’t seem real. Time goes by so fast, I don’t even count by years much anymore. I didn’t really make any resolutions because they’re always the same stuff I tell myself everyday: don’t be so analytical, don’t stress the small stuff, and don’t be so hard on yourself. Except this time maybe I’ll follow through:)

Anyway, let’s start off Drifter & the Gypsy’s first post of 2014 with this breathtaking Parisian apartment.

It was owned by Madame de Florian, a socialite and actress who fled to the South of France during World War II. Although she never returned to Paris, she continued to pay her rent until she died at age 91. The apartment was left unoccupied since 1942.

In 2010, it was discovered by auctioneer Olivier Choppin-Janvry. The apartment was fully furnished and untouched. It’s crazy to think of how much social turmoil occurred during those years, yet the apartment remained undisturbed through it all.

The apartment is currently not open to the public (and okay, maybe it is a little creepy… I’d definitely be creeped out to go inside), but these pictures are enough to blow your mind.

Pumpkin bumpkin

The winter season wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t wear my pumpkin-colored tights and a big, cozy scarf. Have I said how much I love scarves? I love scarves. A lot. Combined with a simple skater dress, thick socks, and boots make for a comfy winter ensemble. As a side note, I’ve put this skater dress up on Swapdom if you’re interested in swapping for it.
