Southern Pecan

For those who don’t follow me on my social media ( ehem, you should go do that now @thisisjocelyne) I shared with everyone my sister’s baby announcement! I honestly never imagined how excited I would be. Mairely and her husband Dario will be amazing parents 😊 (as well as I will be an amazing aunt 😉)

So far, our little southern pecan is 9 weeks out. We took advantage of hurricane Matthew to bring us all together to do a quick little photo shoot as they begin their journey. Stay updated as I will be sharing with you the progress of her pregnancy.

If there are any moms out there that have any advice to first time mothers please post a comment below or shoot me an email. This is a wonderful experience for her and I’m sure will benefit from any advice you give her.

Till next time!

Cafecito time

I want to start off this post by congratulating you on all that you are doing. Whether it is getting a new job, surviving the first week of college, or just ending your shift at work. It doesn’t matter what you are doing, only know that you got there, you made it, and keep going. We all work hard to pay our bills or perhaps provide for our expensive lifestyles (guilty). Whatever it is, congrats, because you’re doing it. Now I need you to do something:

Just stop

Take a breath…take a deep breath. Take a moment and simply relax. Even if you are going through a hard time, know that things will get better. Life happens, that includes good and bad things. You have made it this far. There are moments where we are so busy and don’t stop to give ourselves a break. So for today, your task will be to take a chill pill.

have some cafecito

read an old book

visit a friend

take a jog

stay in and listen to the rain

plugin your headphones and forget about the world.

 

You deserve it. Then keep on doing you boo. You’ve made it this far 😉

Lost Files: St. Augustine Part 2

Hey guys! This is Jocelyne again with more lost files! St. Augustine is such a beautiful place to visit. If you are someone like me who loves exploring and traveling then St. Augustine is a definite must place to go. The weather on that day made everything look so vibrant and colorful. There are so many things to do and many places to see. St. Augustine is just perfect for quick little get away. Once again these were images shot with my Minolta film camera.

Till next time!

Lost Files: St. Augustine Part 1

I was recently cleaning out my desk drawers and I ran into some old film rolls. I had NO idea what kind of pictures were on them or how old they were. It is always exciting to see what these lost files contained! These photos were from a trip we took at St. Augustine. They were taken by a Minolta film camera using color film.

The “manny” ways to love by manny and gabby


You guuuyyysss!!!! I’m so happy to share with you my final assignment in my first digital photography class. I’m in love with these shots mainly because they are two of my closest friends and they are just too cute. ( am I right?! )

In this assignment, I wanted to show a scene that captured their true expression and not just an “act” of love. I was pleased that Emmanuel and Gabriela loved these as much as I did. Could this be the new couple of the year?

summer is that you?

Hello!

After a busy week of finals I’m finally able to share with you one of my favorite photo shoots that I did about two weeks ago. Shout out to Ellen Spivey for these awesome shots!

As you probably know by now, I tend to go for comfort in my clothing. These pants are the definition of comfort. I had gotten these when  worked at HOPE’S, a small boutique store back home. They are currently out of stock but hopefully they will bring something as cute as these again for this summer. I paired it up with a simple crop top I found on SALE at Target.

See ya later!

Spring Time Fun Time

Hey guys!

This week I wanted to start off in style! Bringing back my all time favorite floppy hat to help pull together this super cute and comfy outfit. Jumpsuits are awesome simply because you can totally dress them up or ditch the blazer and get casual. This is the perfect outfit for a daytime or dress it up for a night time look.

Check below for more details on this outfit and let me know your thoughts on this look!

Much love

I’m Back!

HEELLLOOOOO!!!!

The moment I saw that I hadn’t posted in 4 months I knew I had to speed this process up. I had given myself a break to think about the blog’s potential and what I really wanted to do with it. It’s still the same ole’ me but a bit more new and revised 😉 I want this to be a place where I can escape and write about what I love the most. After a lot of planning, I can finally say that “This Is Jocelyne” is now live!

I plan on giving reviews, small talks, tutorials, and sharing my artistic work. Believe me, I’m no professional! If there is anything you guys would want to see or discuss, I would be more than happy to post about it.

I hope you guys like this new look and plan on staying here a while. This journey has just begun.

– Your one and only

Jocelyne
