Happy Friday + Do-gooding!!!

Happy Friday all!  Hope you've had a great week.  I certainly have, and a very busy and exciting one at that! 

Today I want to talk about Kickstarter because very shortly I'll be launching my own kickstarter campaign!  For those of you who don't know, Kickstarter is an online threshold pledge system for funding wonderful creative projects.  Kickstarter has funded a diverse array of endeavors, ranging from indie film and music to writing, fashion, and technology related projects.   Project owners choose a deadline and a target minimum of funds to raise. If the chosen target amount is not gathered by the deadline, no funds are collected, making fund-raising through Kickstarter an all-or-nothing deal.  There are so many amazing projects seeking donation & I really encourage you to check them out and pick at least one to pledge!   If you don't have time to browse projects, why not take my word for it and donate to the great girls behind Rubyassata Handbags?  I donated to them because their video really spoke to me and they seem like really energetic, motivated, hard working ladies just going after that dream!  Donate to them HERE.

Photography That Makes Me Want to Hop on a Plane

The images below are from Brandon Kidd Photography, a husband and wife duo located in Anaheim Hills, CA.  But these images that I'm just drooling over are from the most recent Hitched event in Palm Springs.  There are so many amazing photos of the event over at their blog (Oh, how I wish Hitched would hit Minneapolis one day!) but the photos I'm lovin' are of the hip and modernly retro Ace Hotel in Palm Springs!   If I'm ever in town this is where I want to stay!
