My Holiday
and what it means to me;
My holiday is Christmas. And it's all about the little boy in the picture.
His father sent him to earth to save his people from eternal death and sadness and pain.
He was a perfect child, just as his father is perfect.
He was born in a stable.
His mother was a virgin, her betrothed was a carpenter.
His father is God.
His name is Jesus.
He saved me.
He is the reason I celebrate this holiday.
He is the reason I'm even alive, and He is the reason for everything.

a very special offer via Cor do Mel

I've recently partnered with a beautiful online shop called Cor do Mel.
Cor do Mel sells beautiful, very on-trend jewelry at very affordable prices.
They're such a perfect fit for anyone who loves jewelry.
If you know me, you know that I love jewelry, mostly necklaces, but rings and bracelets are right up my alley, too.
They sent me a few pieces of jewelry to try it, take pictures of, and post here and on Pinterest.
Today I'm going to show you this beautiful (and probably my favorite of the items) red bubble necklace.
Untitled UntitledUntitled UntitledUntitled UntitledUntitled
And my favorite part about this piece is that right now you can get it for only $12!
And that's not the only thing, this is only one of the pieces for such a great price!
Click here to view all the pieces you can get for $12 each. Plus you don't have to pay any shipping charges!
All you have to do to get the items for $12, is add your item(s) to the cart (from the selection here), and use the code XMAS during checkout.
Have fun!

December | Photography and Video Challenge 2013-2014

Don't forget to add your links to the November linkup (at the bottom of the page) here!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Let's flashback...
an introduction & challenge from Rachel Nicole on Vimeo.
(please ignore the thumbnail photo)

i decided that i will post all four themes for the photos at the beginning of every month, then you can link them at the end of the month when i post the linkup. 
i will be posting my photos and video(s) all throughout the month, and you can too (or do whatever you want).
i also decided i will make the video amount optional. it can be one, it can be two (it can even be three or four!), whatever is fine.
the themes for December are:
My Holiday (and what it means to me)
Light
Cookie
Sparkle

some of these are hard, some easy. it's supposed to be a challenge. you can be however creative you want to (for example,if the theme is "sister" like it was in September, and you don't have a sister, post a picture of a friend you know as well as a sister).
be creative, think differently and have fun! 
Also, you can do these themes in any order throughout the month.
You can do it however you want, but i'm going to try to take one photo per week, not all at once.
so, yes.
this is going to be my school year project. care to join me?
(i would love (seriously, it would rock) if you could include this button in each video/photo post)

Okay, let's see how I did here...

The First Snow | November Video 1/1

month 3 | video 1
The First Snow from Rachel Nicole on Vimeo.

I don't like snow in general. but there's always something so magical about the first snow. 
For me, I wake up and the first thing I see is a wall. I can tell when it's snowed just by looking at it.
And it's so magical to wake up to a white everything. Silent. Beautiful snow falling down.
There really is only one word to describe the first snow.
Magical.
