I am so excited to introduce you all to the wonderful Khrisma! She is the new gal here at Ryah Sofia! You'll be "seeing" on our FB page as well as on the blog. I promise you'll love her as much as I do.
Let me start things out my introducing myself; my name is Khrisma and I am Ryah Sofia’s New Internet assistant. You will be hearing from me in the blog as well as the Facebook page for Ryah Sofia from time to time to give her a much-needed break. I suppose you are wondering just who I am and how I came to be her little media assistant.
I am a Kentucky gal born and raised re-homed in Central Oregon. I have a love of all things Girly, Glittery, Glam, Fun & Fabulous. I came across Ryah Sofia from a photographer back home that I followed and thought I’d order a headpiece or two for my little one. Now I’m going to have to admit that Olivia (Livi), as much as I wanted her to be a girly girl just isn’t having any part of it. So I think a part of myself realized this when ordering, but I knew it meant I would get to wear them myself. These new headbands quickly became my go to accessory, my signature piece. Some girls like; headbands, some like shoes, I like my Ryah Sofia Pieces! I quickly became addicted, I ordered not one or two, but several for myself every season, every time Ryah Sofia came out with a new line I was right there getting a few new pieces for my collection.
When I became pregnant with my Son I thought well he can’t wear these, but I bet she could create me a custom Belly Band for my maternity photos.
I must say it wasn’t merely a personal addiction as I had grown to respect and admire Angie professionally as well.
I have been lucky enough to be included in a few of her photo shoots for her collections with my Tutus. Since our products worked so well together, we decided to partner together from time to time and have our items photographed together.
So the tutus you have seen from time to time on her darling little ones would be mine. I am the Owner/Creator of BooKoos of TuTus..
Angie and I have become virtual friends since my first order a few years ago, and realized we have a lot in common. We both love helping our customers design, being active in our children’s lives and enjoying our families. I am so thankful to have another mom to partner with and share exciting new ideas with.
I am excited to help share the <3 so until next time, I’ll leave ya with this thought. . .
I've been super lucky to work with some pretty fantastically talented photographers. I love seeing the finished product of my designs and their artist eye come together. So today I just wanted to spot light a few of the photographers that I have worked with over the years.
First up is the amazing Kelly Gorney, which I have talked lots about because she is just so wonderful to work with. She seriously takes my ideas and runs with them. Always producing photos that I just love! And she always seems to have the most gorgeous models!
She just redesigned her website so stop over and check it out!
Next is the awesome Carrie T from Carrie T Photography. I worked with Carrie in my early days and I STILL use her photos. She has the most gorgeous daughter with the best hair and Carrie knows how to produce a fantastic photo. She is super friendly and was so easy to work with. If you haven't seen some of her newborn shots you MUST check them out, they are awesome! Visit her website here! Next is Meg Darket Photography, who just so happens to be my "neighbor" which means we get to put our creative heads together and produce some pretty fun shoots. Meg is such a joy to work with. I feel like a crazy person sometimes around her because I throw all kinds of ideas at her and she just takes them all and goes with it. Every shot that comes out is awesome!
She just started up her Boudoir site, stop by and check it out, shes definitely on her way to creating a gorgeous profile.
There are many more photographers that I have worked with and that have shared their fanstic photographic talents with me. I promise to post more on them in the future! Thanks to all you wonderufl ladies. My site and designs wouldn't be half of what they are withou
This week I wanted to share with ya'll some of my favorite things to use in the kitchen.
I am WAY behind on sending out Thank You cards to all the wonderful people who showered my youngest daughter with gifts while she was in her cast. I was trying to think of a great way to say thank you AND not break the bank.
I saw on a recipe blog a link to this awesome store "King Arthur Flour", where you can get these great bake and give pans for bread and such. What a perfect idea and they are SO cute!! I ordered the mini loaf sets and plan to make some yummy bread to gift out. Check them out they have all kinds of awesome things!
Next up, is my new favorite recipe, Slow Cooker Sweet Teriyaki Chicken! I found it via Pinterest and thought I'd give it a shot. Oh man was it a winner. The hubby thought it was the best thing ever.... well not ever, but pretty close. The best thing is is that its super easy to make, you stick everything in the crock pot and voila!
Check out the recipe here on my pinterest page!
Last, but definitely NOT least is my most favorite kitchen appliance ever! Thanks to my wonderful Mama who gifted me this for my birthday I am now the proud owner of the Ninja Blender. Seriously if you have never tried one of these you have to! They are the next best thing to a VitaMix, which lets be honest is pretty pricey. This one is completely affordable and so wonderful. But watch out for those blades, they are super sharp!
I love making healthy smoothies in the morning time and it's perfect for making my favorite salsa recipe! I just LOVE it! Especially since it's my 4 blender in 2 years. Yes, I have killed 3 other blenders, none of which were ninja's .... I have bad karma when it comes to blenders.
Do you guys have a kitchen appliance that you can't live without??
I was not paid for these reviews. Opinions are my own.
Oh my goodness it's been forever since I've posted on here. My apologizes. I just can't seem to keep up. But I have been thinking about this post for ages now and have finally sat down to post it. Yay!
I wanted to share some of my favorite things with you guys since all good things should be shared! And if your like me, I'm always looking for new and wonderful products to make my life a bit easier. Today's edition is all about hair and the fantastic new products that have come my way.
First up is this awesome product from Fekkai, which you can buy at Target. You just sprits it on after you style and it adds gloss and shiny-ness to your hair doesn't add stickyness or weight. It smells good too and is perfect for those days when your hair is just blah. I LOVE it!
Next, is probably my favorite hairspray ever..... ok maybe not EVER, but pretty close. Its the "Set Me Up" hairspray from Herbal Essence. It holds really well, especially when I'm trying to trap down all those fly a ways on my girls hair. It's not sticky, which is the worst thing a hairspray can do. And it smells fantastic!
So, there you have it, 2 fantastic hair products that I use everyday and love.
