Nothing comes as close to that perfect golden hour lighting of late summer and early fall, like the cool winter light captured in these shots. And yes, it was every bit as cold as it looks in this shot! My gloves, hat and scarf were much needed, especially since I've been battling a cold for the last two weeks (ugh). Winter is still relatively moderate around these parts, but forecasts are showing a dip in temperature around Christmas next week. The perfect time to win a lovely, snuggly warm alpaca knit hat, don't you agree?
I teamed up with EllePaca, an awesome brand of fairtrade alpaca hats and scarves, to host a giveaway to thank my lovely readers for sticking with me for all this time! The winner of the giveaway can pick out a knit hat (turban, beanie or beret style) or headband of their liking, to keep your head warm through winter. EllePaca doesn't just warm your head, though, the brand also keeps a close-knit (ha!) relationship with those who create their beautiful products. Every item comes with a signed tag that tells you who knit your hat or scarf, and you can look up their story on the website. I couldn't find Estela though, who knit my scarf, and now I really want to see her face and read her quote!
These hats and scarves really are ridiculously warm by the way, for some reason alpaca wool manages to be light and soft and heavenly warm, all at the same time.
Want to win? Head over to my instagram to participate! Giveaway runs until the 21st of december, and with a bit of luck, the winner will receive their present right around Christmas time :-) Good luck!
