Chicago Reading List | By Sasha Elliott
October 10, 2017

When we were about a month out from our trip to Chicago, I started looking for some non-fiction books about the city. I’ve read a few already (I’ve always been fascinated by Chicago), so I’m going to include those, too. Here’s what I came up with! Sin in the Second City: Set in the late […]

Italy {Part Three}
October 3, 2017

My last few days in Italy were magical and fun. Aside from the excellent teaching I received I walked away from my time and experiences feeling an overwhelming sense of gratitude– I was able to lean into a few truths I knew I needed to accept and change in regards to my business. One of […]

Italy {Part Two}
September 26, 2017

Our first day in Italy was a full one! We had a lovely breakfast and then headed up to the old part of the city for an entire day of shooting. Castellabate reminded me of a fairy tale… so incredibly beautiful and so hauntingly old. This town was founded in 1123. No big deal. I […]

Sister’s Weekend in Chicago | By Sasha Elliott
September 26, 2017

Two weekends ago my sister, Kara, and I took our first ever trip solo. Just the two of us — no Mom, no husbands, no babies. Chicago was an obvious choice because it’s a short, cheap flight (and my brother-in-law so generously bought our plane tickets), plus hello, it’s Chi-town. We decided ahead of time […]

Italy {Part One}
September 21, 2017

A few days ago I returned from an exciting adventure: I attended The Secret Retreat, a photography workshop in beautiful Castellabate, Italy. It was the experience of a lifetime, and while I love and prefer to be home, I am so incredibly glad that I went. I found out about this wonderful event through Facebook. After […]

Brooklyn, NYC
August 25, 2017

I just returned home from a fantastical trip to Brooklyn, New York! I’ve wanted to explore Brooklyn for several years, but in my visits to New York it hasn’t been something I’ve been able to do. When my college friend Arlene invited me to her home in BedStuy I jumped at the opportunity. Arlene and […]

Book Club + Book Review | By Sasha Elliott
August 23, 2017

I did a thing. I started a book club! I’ve honestly have wanted to start one for a few years now, but always found a reason not to. It wasn’t until I mentioned hosting one to one of my friends that it actually happened. She kept asking when I was going to make the Facebook […]
