If We Were Having Coffee (Feb Edition)

Time for a mid-month catch-up! Here’s what I’d ramble about if we were having coffee (or some other kind of drink).

If we were having coffee, I would say that this month has been going fairly slow. We’re only halfway through, but I feel like it’s moving at a snail’s pace. It may be because the holiday season is officially over. I’m back to my full time work of 5 days a week, and waking up at 6 am. But hey, at least the weather is nice!

If we were having coffee, I would nervously bring up that I’ve decided to do something a little out of my comfort zone. I haven’t told family about it (but if you guys are reading this, well then you know now), but I’m going to be doing a boudoir shoot! I’m fairly excited about it. I’d been considering it back before the wedding, but I chickened out. However, thanks to some posts I read lately, it came back into mind, and now I’m going for it! I’ve found a lovely photographer I get along with (I went with a woman, as I felt more comfortable with that), and the shoot is scheduled in a few weeks. I didn’t realize that I also get my hair and makeup all done up as part of the package which is an added bonus too. I’m 50/50 nervous and excited!

If we were having coffee, I’d point out that next month will be my one year blogging anniversary and my first wedding anniversary! So that’s two big exciting things! We’ve made plans for wedding anniversary celebrations, but I’m still not sure what to do for my first blogiversary. A party? A post looking back? A combo? Who knows? But come March 6, Life of Angela will officially have been active for a year!

If we were having coffee, I’d ask how your 2018 has been so far? Anything exciting coming up?

    1. That’s pretty much my plan haha! Our anniversary is in late March, so this seemed like a good gift idea ?
      I’m glad you had a great experience! That makes me more excited for my own ? Thanks Carly!


  1. That shoot sounds very exciting! I’d do it for a partner, plus it’d be lovely to be able to look back on when I’m eighty and my breasts are closer to my knees than my chin ;P


    1. It’s very exciting! It sounded like a fun wedding anniversary gift to get Rory, and also, it does sound like just a new and cool experience for myself haha! Plus, yeah it’d be cool to have photos when I’m at my ‘best’ ?


  2. A boudoir shoot?! That’s an awesome idea! I had wanted to do something like that to try to improve my confidence while inspiring others with a stoma, but alas, it’s another thing on my list I haven’t done. You’ll have to tell us all about it – I’m sure it will be awesome! 🙂


    1. It should be fun! It does seem like something a bit empowering as well a bit of a confidence boost 😀 I’m planning on writing about how it goes! Hopefully one day you can tick it off your list too 😀


  3. Your one year anniversary is on March 6? That’s when I’m going to the theatre and I can’t describe how I excited I am, That’s so cool. I would love to see a post looking back at your old posts xx


  4. Aw a boudoir shoot sounds very exciting! If that’s gonna make you feel more comfortable, you can try it on your own with your tripod first. But I’d be very interested to read more about your experience!


    1. That’s a good idea, try do a practice shoot first haha! I am coming around to the idea of having my photo taken though. Victoria (the photographer) and I have been emailing back and forth about ideas and stuff, and it’s definitely making me more at ease.
      I’m definitely going to do a post about the whole experience though! 😀


  5. those boudoir shoots always sounded like fun, I would love to do something like that for Alex haha
    and I have to disagree, I think Feb is rolling through pretty fast, or at least for me. I’ve been busier than ever I didn’t even think that was possible after the holiday season LOL


    1. I’ve always had boudoir shoots in the back of my mind for ages. It’ll definitely be a fun gift for Rory, but also, it just sounds like so much fun for me too haha!! You should look into it more if you’re interested, that’s how I wound up here 😀
      I wish my February was going faster, it’s still at a snail’s pace for me!


      1. lol i’ll definitely look into it, though it would be hard to keep that a secret from Alex lmao
        well on the bright side, it’s almost over! 😀 LOL 8 more days haha
