Sex and the City!!!

Went and saw Sex and the City last night. I was worried the movie wouldn't hold up to the cable version we all grew to know and love, but let me tell you it was soooo very good! It felt like a reunion amongst friends of sorts seeing the characters who reminded me of so many of my own dear friends. And, the audience was going wild. I have never heard such a loud buzz of happy movie-goers as I did at the end of the movie while everyone was walking out.

Go see this movie! Better yet, grab a bunch of your best girlfriends and see it as a group! You'll be so glad you did!

Gladiator Heels

I would rock these gladiator heels by Alexandar McQueen so hard with a cute little white dress! At $899 though I may be rockin' them in my dreams only!

Luxury Hair Salon

I have been cheating on my hair stylist, Jackie (one of the BEST in Vegas) of 3 years since she moved to her new, amazing salon, Color by Michael Boychuck. Why? I don't know. One look at her new salons website, made me think I was an idiot for not following her as a client there! All is well though, as she is checking her schedule tomorrow to fit me in! I absolutely cannot wait to go! Isn't this salon divine looking?

Human Calendar

I have seen the Human Calendar project before but didn't realize it was available as a widget until seeing it on Glassford Hill Girl's Blog. Too cool!

Happy Mother's Day

Well, Mother's Day is off to a rough start, but in honor of my mother, here is a little about her....

My mother had me at a very young age and raised me for the most part as a single mother. She was very lucky in the men department though, and always had an admirer (or 2!!!) wanting to marry her! It was almost ridiculous at how fast a man would want to marry my mom...I'm talking within a month of meeting her they were popping the question! I obviously didn't inherit that trait from her. :) Anyway, she always struggled to make ends meet, but managed somehow to feed my dreams of singing, dancing, playing the flute & piccolo, acting, etc by coming up with money to keep me in classes for all of my silly, lofty dreams. I even managed to get Best Dressed at school in the 6th grade because she allowed me to charge up her credit card to get cute school clothes that year. My mom is the funniest, smartest, most creative and quick-witted woman I have ever come across! She has kept me laughing throughout the years with her practical jokes and lightning fast sense of humor. I'm thankful for everything that makes her unique and for all that she does for me and for Austin.

I love you Mom! Happy Mother's Day!

Mom then:

Definitely worth applauding, their vibrant hues become richer and more impressive as each bloom slowly unfurls. With their amazing colors and Veriflora certification, these roses are definitely a regal experience. Includes one dozen long-stem roses.

Summer Hats

Another item I think would go with my fantasy vacation would be a cute hat. I never wear them, but might be tempted if I had one of these (Panama Asymmetrical Cloche or Floppy Boho Fedora)!

Whisk Me Away

I am definitely ready for a nice little getaway. A weekend at a boutique hotel in Palm Springs or a whole week (or TWO!)somewhere tropical would suit me just fine right about now! I'm diggin' these coverups (1 & 2) for such an occassion. And, I am still wanting the Tom Ford 'Jennifer' sunglasses!

Big Thank You to Mystery Hero

I just watched a disturbing report of a baby seal tangled in fishing net. The fishing net was caught around it's neck! The poor little seal could be seen struggling trying to get free and heard gasping for breath. Yet nobody would go near it due to a law restricting humans from going near the federally restricted animals.

As I watched this story, I couldn't believe that so many people were willing to watch this poor animal possibly die. I knew that I would have been willing to break the law in that situation. Thankfully, someone else had the same idea and snuck over to free the baby seal from the net in the middle of the night. Thank you mystery person!


I've Been a Bad Blogger

Please forgive me. Now that I am getting a handle on some of my side jobs/projects, I hereby swear that I will be more mindful to my poor, neglected little Lemonade blog.

Speaking of Lemonade, I recently discovered that a fairly popular blog, called Sk*rt are considering changing their name to "Lemonade" and using the tagline, "when life gives you lemons". Hmmm. Not sure how I feel about that. They have a few different options though. Can't wait to see what they select!

New Website

I didn't think I would be able to do it this fast, but my new website (temporary landing page anyway) is now live...
Yay! Thanks to Steffan and Arnold for helping me with this!


Exciting things are on the horizon! Check out my other blog for a sneak peek!

My photography as mostly hobby is turning into a nice little side business. People are catching on and beginning to book appointments with me! I am one busy girl on my weekends now and LOVING it. Because of the demand, not to mention my passion for shooting pretty pictures, I have decided to focus even more on photography. I will still do freelance design when the opportunity arises and definitely will still have my day job, but I am super excited at what my future holds as, (gasp!) a photographer!

Basically, I am developing an identity and marketing strategies for photography due to the amount of interest I've been getting. Website, business cards, etc are coming soon. Yay!!!

On top of the marketing I will be doing, I will continue to focus on learning more and more. It's just the beginning.

Beautiful Animated Short

"Enjoy the beautiful French-made Spanish animation movie "En Tus Brazos" about how nothing can stop a tango dancing couple ... not even fate. It abounds with creativity, sentiment and argentine tango.

The greatest tango dancer of the 20's is stuck in a wheelchair after a tragic accident. Thanks to his wife, he recovers the use of his legs, the time of one imaginary dance, ending entreating passionately "Don't stop, hold me tight"."
