January Photo a Day 30. Nature

Aahhh, nature. I am really not that much of an outdoorsy kinda girl. There are certain aspects of nature I love… roses, the ocean, the breeze in the mountains. I live in the city. We have tried to make our home comfy, but we really are not so great at maintaining…  But here is a bit of nature around my home.

Floral Nature...

Here’s another one. More like what you’d find in the desert.

January Photo a day – Catching up… 27. Lunch, 28. Light & 29. Inside Your Fridge

It has been a busy weekend. So I will just do one post for the last couple of days.

27. Lunch – I mentioned before I just failed to get a lunch photo so I have decided to share what I had when I met “A Bit of Sparkle Farkle” at a fun independent coffee house, Cartel. It was a wonderful connection. I am looking forward to this new friendship.

MMM.... Blackberry scone and hot Chai

28. Light – The 28th is my brothers Birthday and if I could have gotten a shot of a Birthday Cake & Candles that would have been great. But I didn’t get to see him that day. 😦  I did come home to a crazy fort built in the living room. With the window behind it the light hit just right.

Later I was with my youngest and was able to catch this photo of Light.

Light #2

29. Inside Your Fridge – I have to say, I was not looking forward to this photo. It is usually a mess in the sense that it is full of stuff & things. But, here you go…


That’s all for today. Tomorrow is Nature…



Make up – January Photo a Day 26. Colour

Colour is such a big part of my life! I help people wear the right colours (clothing & make up). I want and like colour in MY wardrobe. Although if you ask my 6 year old he’d tell you I like black. He’s right, I like it WITH colour. 🙂  Colour in my home, we have purple couches. Yes, my husband is OK with this.

This palette is one of my favorite from BeautiControl. It’s called Tropicana. Just so pretty. Can be subtle or bold.


Fashion – January Photo a Day 25. Something You Made

I am creative but not in a crafty sense (or at least I don’t feel as If I am). So the “something you made” threw me off a little, other than dinner yesterday. 🙂  Then I remembered I had make some bracelets with my MOM’s group a few years back. Each from a different year and theme. Yes, I still wear them.

Something I made

Kinda silly I know.

January Photo a Day 24. Guilty Pleasure – Chocolate

I have to laugh I got the days mixed up and photoed and posted to my FB and Twitter tomorrows photo. That’s what I get for running around with my head cut off.

At any rate, my usual guilty pleasure is chocolate. I just happen to pick up these goodies today when I popped to the store. MMMM  Chocolate… (insert Homer voice).

Here is the ooops photo. 🙂  Dinner for my boys. (Something You Made)

Fashion – January Photo a Day 22. Your Shoes

These shoes are from Switch & Ditch. I am looking forward to wearing them when the weather gets warmer. I love a kitten heel. Just enough to give some height but not so much that I can’t run after my boys. The bag is also from Switch & Ditch. Soo fun finding great pieces.

January Photo a Day 20. Someone You Love – Mom

I have a houseful of someone’s I love. And I have photographed them several time during this process of Photo a Day. It happened that Jan 20th (the actual date of the challenge) my mom came over to watch the boys. AND it was her birthday. So I love that I was able to capture this moment with her.  She didn’t know I was taking the picture so it just feels so nature to who she is.  She is an amazing women. I am blown away at her faith, love and loyalty every day.  Happy Birthday, Mom!
