I’m Moving!

Hello everyone,

 

This title might seem vague and scary, and I guess it sort of is. I’m not moving my geographical location (not yet, anyway), but I am moving across the internet. Sort of.

I’ve had this blog for a long time. I made it when I first started college as a side project to keep myself writing and documenting things I did throughout school. I’ve loved it. I’ve loved the recipes, the outfit posts, even the embarrassing beginning ones (and they do exist).

As I’m graduating in a few short months and applying to jobs and such, I’ve been thinking about what I really want to do and what I want to write about. I love to write, and I want to continue writing online to keep up the momentum. But I just didn’t feel inspired by this space anymore. It felt like I’d grown too big for it, and the themes I wanted to blog about just weren’t matching up.

I wanted to create a new blog for a long time, but since I had gained so many followers on here, I wanted to be able to keep all the readers that I’ve accumulated over time. I felt stuck, and my response was just to kind of not write or upload anything.

For one of my classes, we had to create a new blog that encompassed our style. It could be anything we wanted, and I felt an opportunity opening up for me. The more I thought about this new blog, the more excited I was to do something different. This was the beginning of Heathermoors. I thought long and hard about the blog I wanted to create and I decided that this is what I want, that this is what I want myself to be in a blog, and I’m pleased with it. It’s far from done, in fact the first few posts were posts I had to do for a school project. But I enjoy the pictures, I like the vibe, and I like the name.

If you’re still reading, thank you for making it this far! I’m very proud of my new blog, and I want to take a minute to describe it to you. I want it to be about nature. I want it to be inspired by fashion and beauty and all the things we love, but with lush photography and atmospheric images that conjure up emotions in us that will fill us with passion and joy. I want people to be inspired by every post I make, so the quality standard of what I’m uploading and writing is much higher now.

The name Heathermoors is derived from my name (Heather) and the moors. The moors are my favorite environment, they are fascinating to me. I love looking at Scottish moors, Irish moors, the misty moors of England that inspired books like Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre. This is my favorite vibe, and I wanted to incorporate it. My first post illustrates my inspiration, you can see it here.

I’ll be planning on uploading more often and coming up with thoughtful, content-rich blog posts to keep the inspiration up. There’s still a lot of work to do, like changing my bios and all my accounts (like Bloglovin’, Pinterest, Instagram, etc.). But I’m happy to be growing into a new space, and I hope you’ll come along with me. All of my faithful friends on this site have encouraged me to move forward, and I appreciate it whole-heartedly.

If you have any questions or want to talk with me about it, I’ll still be answering comments on here! I’ll also be leaving this site up so all the posts I’ve done through the years are accessible. (There were some great recipes that just can’t be deleted!)

Thanks again for always reading and showing love to this blog. I hope to see and hear from you guys soon.

Introducing Heatherwood Issue No. 1 (Autumn)

Heatherwood Cover.001

If you’re looking for inspiration for fall, for the upcoming holidays, or even just an escape from your everyday life, you can check out my digital magazine. I worked so hard on this and I’m so pleased with the result. The magazine is all about Autumn (which I realize is a little late, but I think it’ll still be exciting.) Inside are illustrations, writing, and photography to help spark something in you. I think this would be perfect for curling up with your tablet or iPad and chilling out for awhile and looking through. Hopefully you feel as cozy reading it as I was making it.

Also, all work in the magazine are mine. There is a written entry and photograph from Bhavika and the link to her blog is in the zine to check out more of her awesome work. I was so happy that anyone submitted anything, and her writing went perfectly with the rest of the material. If you are hanging out today and preparing for Thanksgiving, this might be the perfect thing to help you unwind! Mostly this was just for fun to put all of my work in one place, so I’m happy I can even publish it at all. I’m excited to see what all of you think!

 

Here is the link to Heatherwood. Enjoy!

Zine Launch Date

_DSC0298

Quite an exiting title, isn’t it? I can’t believe I am almost ready to realize my first online magazine.

If you didn’t know already, I’ve been drawing and painting and writing, and then putting that collection of things into an online magazine. It isn’t anything fancy and I’m not making money off of it, but it’s been creatively exciting! It is all about Autumn, which is my favorite season of all time.

I had submissions open for the magazine, but they are officially closed. The launch of the digital zine will be the day before Thanksgiving, which is Wednesday, November 25th. I think this is the perfect day to read it and be cozy while having time off for Thanksgiving. In between making yummy meals, you can flip through and hopefully be inspired.

 

I am finishing everything for the zine in the time until it launches, and I’m so excited to share it with you.

The Gathering Magazine| Fall Issue 2015

This past week has had it’s ups and downs, simply because moving and changing your life around can be hard.

I have to say though, this is one of the most exciting things to happen yet! Our fall edition of the Gathering Magazine (a lifestyle and event mag) has finally arrived and it is jam packed with exciting Autumn features.

Inside, there are amazing fall recipes for Thanksgiving, or if you’re just in the mood to create something wonderful. Inside, there are articles I wrote featuring the amazing Apotheker’s Kitchen and a small article on the amazing foundation, The Pink Agenda. I honestly had so much fun talking to these guys and really getting into their work. There is some inspiring stuff in this issue!

If you’re curious, take a look at the magazine here and see if you’d like to buy a copy of this issue or possibly subscribe for future issues. And as always, let me know what you think!
