Good-Bye…And Hello

Yesterday, the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks took on the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX in Glendale, Arizona.  In case you're the one person who didn't watch the game or tune in just for the commercials, the New England Patriots are the new Super Bowl Champions.  The end of the Super Bowl means the end of football season.  My team's season pretty much sucked so I cannot say that I am sad to see this season come to an end.   With football season over and so many TV hours free, I started thinking of what shows I am excited about that will be starting soon or in the next couple of months.

My Guilty Pleasure

2015,January 22
Thumbnail image for My Guilty Pleasure

This week's prompt for Project 52 is "Guilty Pleasure."  I actually took this photo several weeks ago when I decided to do a post about the magazines that I read, but once I looked over the list of Project 52 photography prompts, I decided to save it for this week.   So, I love magazines.  Over the years I've had subscriptions to a lot of different magazines.  The bad part is that these days they seem to pile up and before I know it, I have 3 months of unread magazines.  But that is changing.  This year I vowed to stay on top of reading my magazines, which means I'm Read More ...

We don't often think of wearing shorts in winter, because, well, it's cold.  But when you think about it, we wear dresses and skirts in winter, so why can't we wear shorts, too?  Well, I'm here to tell you that you can and I'm going to give you one good reason why you should – these Kate Spade Saturday wool shorts that I scored on clearance at Marshalls.  I'm really into neutrals right now, because neutral colors are so chic, and these grey shorts fit right into my classic, chic style.  Pair them with tights, a turtleneck or sweater, and knee boots or over-the-knee boots and you'll look very winter appropriate.  These will Read More ...

Earlier this week, I shared with you my travel list for 2015.  My other main focus for this year is to practice my photography and become a superstar photographer by December 31, 2015.  Ok, maybe not superstar, but I definitely want to see my photography improve over the course of the year.  So, when fellow blogger Mimi of Lipgloss & Binky posted about hers and LaShawn's (Everyday Eyecandy) photography challenge, Project 52, I was all in (ok, maybe not quite ALL in since I didn't post for week 1 of the challenge. Oops.).  Since the week 2 photo prompt is "Morning," I decided to photograph and write about my morning routine (this Read More ...
