Breezy Days: Samantha Elizabeth


February 24, 2012

Samantha Elizabeth

Is anyone else excited that it's sunny outside and it's FRIDAY?!
I will be mega excited about this after I study and take my Infant Development exam.
{And no, I'm not preggo. I have to take it for my major, I'll have to share some interesting tid-bits one of these days}.

Anywhoodle, while I'm studying up a storm, I have a blogger friend of mine Samantha Elizabeth taking over my blog for the day answering some questions I had for her.
Check her out!
1. When did you start to get into photography? What initially inspired you?
I have always been interested in photography, since I was in high school...but I really didn’t start getting into it in a “business” perspective until a year and a half ago! It was a huge leap of faith, but here I am and I couldn’t be happier! The photos themselves inspired me...people’s compliments and support inspired me...I wanted to be able to give people my art and expression by taking them on as clients...I have been so blessed!
2. If I happen across your blog on a random day, what can I expect to find?
Well, that is a shot in the dark, it can change so day I am posting wedding photos from a wedding I just shot...and the next day its a post on the meal I prepared for dinner...or a DIY craft...OR fashion...OR how  my eyebrows were waxed too thin and I cried! I am all over the blog is like my diary or journal....
3. Can you tell me what you offer in your Etsy shop, Love Spun Vintage?
My photography, blogging, Etsy, thrfit and vintage addiction(s)! They are all wound into one big awesome hobby. I love it all. My Etsy shop is full of fun thrifted and vintage items that I find at local antique and thrift stores in my area. If I think its an item that can be paired with some modern pieces to create a phenomenal look...then it ends up on my Etsy site at a very affordable price!
4. What are five things about you and/or your blog that make you unique?
 Whew! 5? well...lets see -- I hope I am unique enough to come up with 5 things!!

1) It is super diverse...I don’t post about fashion everyday....its always changing
2) All or (most all) the images are taken by yours truly - or my poor husband!
3) My blog speaks to the common everyday girl on a budget...I don’t have oodles of money to purchase Michael Kors watches, or Balenciaga bags, or Jimmy Choos....(once in a while I might splurge) but is too short to spend over $100 on a purse or any piece of clothing for that matter...I’d rather take that money and purchase a plane ticket and indulge in some history or adventure...I want more blogs to speak to the budget blogger, and the girl whose style comes from her own hard earned dollar -- not her husbands, not her parents,...I want those blogs to have the thousands of followers... they are real. I hope my blog encompasses that.
4) Almost always I have a thrifted item in my fashion posts! 
5) I am just me and I don’t try to copy or be anyone else! (hence why I just call my blog plain and simply “Samantha Elizabeth). 

Ok that was tough but I pulled off 5!! woohoo!
5. What is something/someone/or a certain event that you are extremely proud of? And why?
Wow, that is a great question. Geez. This could go in so many different directions. hmmm. I could really pick from a handful of individuals. I would have to say I am most proud of my husband, Dusty. While I was going to school he went off to play professional hockey for a few years...he worked his butt off...saw success and saw failure...he never gave up. He was the hardest worker I ever knew. This past year he finally “retired” and “hung em’ up” as the hockey world calls it...(hung up the skates). He is now back in school to finish up his pre-med requirements...he works like a dog. I have never seen someone with so much worth ethic and ambition. He inspires me. He is full of grace and faith. Something I admire greatly. 

Happy Friday!
<3 Bri

Rachel Sayumi Porter said...

She is BEAUTIFUL and I covet her clothes!

BRI I am soooooo getting WAY super excited to meet you :D

Loved the interview but I don't think that it's fair to say that I shouldn't spend my husbands hard earned money on clothes for myself. I run our household and take care of our son while trying to start up my own business. I don't see it as his money but ours and I work just as hard as he does.
No hard feelings. She looks like a great girl. Just wanted to get that out there too :)

Response to: Sophie @TheForgeStyle --

I am not saying "you shouldn’t” - spend your husbands hard earned money. (especially if your a hard working stay at home mommy) What I am saying is...the outfits I wear are MY own hard earned money. My husband is back in school...right now in my life thats what my style is about...its about a budget and paying bills. Its REAL for me right now in my life. Those are the blogs I like to follow, those are the blogs I relate to! Sorry if it offended you. Not my intention.
