Pumpkin Patch!! 

The feelings of fall are truly starting to reach Georgia these days and so my boyfriend and I went to our local pumpkin patch hosted by the Boy Scouts of America! 
We had a blast picking out our pumpkins and of course with our busy schedules I was wearing my Busy Band as well, which can be found here!  

Here are some of the pictures from that day! 

Of course I had to get some magnificent fall shots of my Busy Bands. More pictures can be found on my Instagram page at @90sbornreader or on my Etsy Shop


(He’s very good at holding things for me :D) 


My trusted B-Hobo Kelly Moore bag of course came with us. I’ve traveled everywhere with this bag. It always holds everything I need from camera gear to water bottles to maps. You can see my original post on my blog here! 


We had a fantastic time spending the afternoon going through all the pumpkins to find the perfect two because of course we can’t share one hahahahahahaha. Until next time,

Wanderlust: Cinque Terre

 Cinque Terre or the English translation of “Five Lands” in Italian is just that. It is a chain of 5 islands on the Italian Riviera. We were able to easily get to Cinque Terre by taking the train from La Spezia to Riomaggiore, which is the farthest one of the five. People come from all over the world to view these, lets call them islands, to hike the seaside mountains, which are filled with trails for ever hiker experience level. All of Cinque Terre is also considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site through the Cinque Terre National Park. So, if you’re looking for an outdoor adventure, and hiking experience where you could possibly get some wine along the way this place is for you!
The beautiful landscape and homes right on the side of the mountains is enough to take anyones breath away. There’s a lot more than just hiking through these lovely villages. There’s plenty to eat and drink like there is in any Italian city or villa. My mother and I had a wonderful time wandering through the trails, and checking out the beach. There were so many picturesque places that we were able to get the best scenery shots and selfies!! Here are some of our pictures below!cinque-terre-2

Who knew my mother was such a great photographer?! Here I am with my favorite Kelly Moore bag that I travel with everywhere! You can see my review on this bag here
mom-and-i-ct
We went during late September and early October meaning that it was cool in the mornings and then hot during the afternoons. Hence why I’m wearing long sleeves, but I’m also wearing shorts as well.
I never expected to add travel to this blog, so I did not get very many scenery shots of these beautiful villages, but of course you should go check them out for yourself.  Until next time,

A Beautiful Mess, a Kelly Moore Bag

AAAAHHHHHHHH two of my favorite things to stare at on the computer came together.

Kelly Moore, check out that post here, and A Beautiful Mess, which is a wonderful blog of DIY and Recipes and photography tips. These two made a bag that explores function, business, and style in the world of photography. This bag is on the larger side, and sometimes I can’t get it to lie where I want it to on my body.

It is a beautiful briefcase style that holds everything that you need it to hold in terms of gear, and more. It can also be used as a diaper bag or anything else you want because the inside sleeve for your camera comes out as it does on the B-Hobo bag. Here are some pictures of how I use it.

It also comes with a diaper changing mat, and a container that can hold a large lens or a water bottle. It also comes in fun colors like Kelly Green and Walnut. I chose the Walnut color because I already have a Mustard Kelly Moore bag, and I wanted something that could possibly be used for school as well.  I can put basically the same amount of stuff in this bag as I can can the B-Hobo bag, with probably just a little extra room and a little more free space.

Also my iPad mini fits in the front pocket, and my surface tablet fits in the back pocket. I like having my surface instead of my macbook sometimes just because it is lighter, and I can still upload pictures on to it. With a nifty SD card reader I got from BestBuy I don’t need to know where the cords are.

This bag is close to $200, but it is a large and sturdy bag that comes with some extra things in it. I think it is just a little too wide, as I said earlier it doesn’t sit on me right, but I could just be weird.

It also comes with two straps, a matching strap, and the striped strap that matches the inside of the bag. I hope these pictures help! I’m going to try and get a picture of me with the bag, so you can see where it lays. Until next time,

Kelly Moore B-Hobo Bag

Though I am not an avid photographer, I love the idea of photography. I have always loved cameras and everything that comes with them. As you already know I love bags as well. So, of course I went into a major search to find the perfect camera bag!

Through spending hours online during class, or procrastinating on homework I found nothing. Until I was doing a school event and was talking to a woman who pulled out her camera from this beautiful bag that she said was actually a camera bag. I asked her where she got it it from and she said “Kelly Moore!”. That is where the obsession began. I of course then had to spend countless hours on the computer trying to find out more about this Kelly Moore. I watched YouTube videos, read reviews, combed her website, and decided that this was the right camera bag for me. She has so many different types to fit all occasions and all needs, and they are beautifully designed to look like your typical day bag with the protection of your expensive camera.
Now the bags are expensive so I needed one to fit into my jobless college girl budget. I decided on the B-Hobo bag that is one of the least expensive of the bunch. This one is shaped like a large purse and has a comfortable shoulder strap. After consulting through a mass email with family I decided to go with mustard, and treated myself to a late birthday/early graduation present.
Below you’ll see some pictures, I took these the night before vacation so they’re kind of rushed, of how I fill it up, and what I can carry in it!

The bag is capable of standing up on its own

Under the flap of the bag there are two pockets that I slip my extra memory cards and my phone into. There are also side pockets that iPhone can fit into.
Lastly there is a back pocket that I can put my iPad mini or notebook into

The inside of the bag has padding that is able to protect you camera. I’m able to fit my DSLR in here with lens attached as well as my fixed 50mm lens.
The dividers are adjustable so that you can shape them however you want.
Also the inside of the bag comes out so you can just use it as a purse!

Here are all of the things I’m able to fit into my bag minus my DSLR. Here you see:
1. Surface Tablet 2
2. iPad mini
3. Evernote notebook
4. 50mm fixed lens
5. fisheye lens
6. Case f extra memory cards
7. Grid-It Organizer (Actually I’m not sure if this fits in there it just might still be on the table)
8. My point and shoot Nikon

 Here’s me and my bag at the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, Turkey!
You can see that it lies just like a normal purse and is pretty inconspicuous as a camera bag.
It worked wonderfully for my adventure this summer!!
