I know there was Sarah last week, and now I give you another Sara, but she writes her name without 'h', so it's easy not to get confused! ;o)
Pretty soon after last week's ***Monday Friend*** post, Sara from The House of Shoes contacted me to ask if she could be a Monday Friend, too.
Imagine how excited I was: Somebody specifically asked to be on my blog! And what a great opportunity to dig into a new site (and call it 'work' ^^), getting to know Sara and her fabulous smile.

Sara gave me a list of four things to include in the illustration:
1. Husband/Family/Friends: I agree with Sarah from the last Monday Friend post- the people in my life are always number 1 :) I wouldn't be who I am today without their positive influences.
2. My Faith: I also wouldn't be who or where I am today without my faith/religion. It is my saving anchor in good times and bad, and the foundation of every decision I make.
3. Photography: It is my favorite hobby, hands down! I'm just starting out but I thrive on taking pictures and expressing how I see the world in my own whimsy way.
4. Fashion: I heard once that fashion is art that you get to wear, and I completely agree! Fashion allows me to show my personality and I find so much joy in challenging myself to see what new combinations I can come up with! There are so many luscious fabrics and designs to choose from.
The house of Shoes is a personal fashion blog. Sara posts lots of outfit pictures. You can see that she has a lot of fun showing off her creations, playing with the camera and with picture styles. What I love maybe the most about these shots is that in 80 per cent of the pictures, Sara has a big wide smile on her face. In my opinion, this makes her stand out from the momentary trend in fashion photography that seems to think that pictures can only be classified as professional if the model has any look but a smile on.
I love Sara's playful picnic collages. Doesn't this picture make you feel like you're looking into Wonderland?
Sara is newly married and this is just a sneak peek of the great pictures she has on her blog of her fabulous vintage-themed wedding. You should definitely go and check them out! I daresay that her handsome husband is a very patient man and a talented photographer, judging by the tons of outfit shots that he takes of Sara.
I am more excited than ever about ***Monday Friend***! It was such a wonderful feeling to meet a new blogfriend through this feature. So if you think you might like being a Monday Friend, don't be shy! I am overly happy to receive your emails at shinybubble (at) gmx.ch
I have two grrreeat friends linded up and waiting for you already, so stay tuned for next week.
In the meantime, if you want some more fashion inspiration: Why don't you klick on that 'like' button in the sidebar and join the shiny bubble on facebook? I've started sharing outfit-peeks on my page that will not be posted on the blog. Just a little happy snap for you to look at.
