Hey guys! I wanted to share with you all my collaboration with NOOK by Barnes & Noble. I was asked to show how I use the NOOK during my day to day activities. I was really impressed with how small and compact it was! Also a huge thing I noticed was the clarity the NOOK offered. There are so many tablets out there nowadays, but NOOK to me is different. It's very lightweight, and you will forget you even brought it with you! Below are all the ways I incorporated it into my routine! 

In the morning I am usually finishing up projects due that day, and getting inspiration for what I would like to shoot in the future. So basically, the morning ends up being a "Pinterest pinning" morning...haha

The NOOK has an app store just like the iPads. I downloaded Instagram and Pinterest right away, and the clarity on the apps were great!

I have made working out and being healthy a lifestyle, and do it all from home. I have found the perfect program "XHIT" on youtube last July, and still haven't tired from these girls! I do it all from my NOOK, while I have my favorite show (Gilmore Girls) streaming on Netflix through my computer. 

SIDE NOTE: Can we talk about how my messy bun looks?! It NEVER usually looks cute when I throw my hair up like that, like you see all these girls do in a second. I am sure it won't happen intentionally again, so I am taking in a good messy bun moment! haha



Usually I am out and about a lot when I am not editing at home. Getting out of the editing black hole is a must when you are looking at the same images all day. Another big part of my world is EMAILS. Which I will be the first to admit is not my strong suit. Meaning replying right away. I am usually back and forth with editing/shooting then emails are last. I am trying to get better guys I promise!

The NOOK makes it so easy to grab a cup of coffee and view/respond to emails on the go. It's so lightweight, and way better then lugging my laptop around. So basically, a perfect alternative between a laptop and cellphone.

Ok, here it is....I am not just saying this to say it... 

Next time you are in Barnes and Noble, you MUST look the NOOK over. Coming from a person whom thinks "Oh wow...another tablet to throw into the mix..." I really think the quality you get for the price is pretty awesome. #lifeofnook

For Him x Free People

Recently I collaborated with Free People on finding the perfect Valentines gifts for my man. Believe it or not Brandon was my first boyfriend whom I was with during V-day. This is now the second year of lovey - dove gift giving, and I am so glad he is the one I am finding/getting presents for. Also decided to give him these things early because well...I love him everyday..not just ONE day out of the whole year!

       Recently Free People started a gift shop featuring beautiful gifts "For Him" & "For Her." I obviously love FP and all the things they create. I knew this would be an amazing place to find some sweet presents....pun intended. I have noticed that most brands that are women brands don't offer gift ideas for us to get our boyfriend/husband. Free People saved the day...Valentine's Day that is.

        I decided to get the Peg & Awl Waxed Canvas Weekender and The Curious Bartender -An Odyssey Malt. Bourbon & Rye Whiskies book. He has been needing a bigger weekender for business trips, and Peg & Awl make beautiful pieces. So glad FP started carrying them. Also he is more then a fan of Whiskey & Bourbon. He loves trying different kinds. This book features the history of each and delicious drinks he can try! 

If you are still trying to find that perfect gift for you loved one, I think you will be more then pleased with Free People's options! Below are the links to shop just like I did!


Another thing I have been loving about Free People lately is, their #fpme feature! I got to shoot some lovely pieces of theirs and add them to my new FPME account. This is great because it allows you to see how other fellow FP lovers are styling the clothes. It's nice to see girls my height and size styling the dresses or pants so I can better grasp how the clothing will look on my body type, and not looking at a picture of a model. 

I added photos to my FPME account "emmajane12" <---(You can click and see..) Below I have added the photos as well. They may not be on my account yet because it took me forever to figure out how to upload. That was all my and my stupidity, because apparently I forgot how to read words they were right in front of me! Whatever item you have purchased, you find on their website then right below it says "Add your photo......"

I know no words for myself. READ EMMA. haha... 

Anyways, I hope you enjoy these beautiful FP pieces and how I photographed them......you all know how much I love being in front of the camera! Also links are below!
