Photograghs or it never happened


Dipping my toes into photgraphy is one of the most fulfilling things I have done in my spare time. I am learning on my own by reading, observing and listening to advice.

I am figuring out the preset game and the best editing tools out there. Right now I am using Light Room by Adobe Photoshop. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am using our old faithful Canon EOS 20D. It takes amazing photographs and is quite easy to use. Someday I hopefully will be able to upgrade to a more recent model.

Looking forward to documenting all the beauty around by slowing down life a bit. Photographs or it never happened!

Love The Skin Your In


A LimeLife Glow starts with great skin. Our products work to heal, hydrate, and rebalance your skin.

It takes less than a minute for chemicals from skin care products to get into your bloodstream. LimeLife has set out to develop a skin care line that is free of harmful chemicals.

I have been using these products for two years and I must say my skin at 52 hasn’t looked better. My skin is fresh and I am healthier on the inside from this amazing natural skin care line.

Not only do we have amazing skin care but our cosmetic line is incredible. We offer complexion, eyes, lips, tools and customized palettes.

LimeLife cosmetic products are made with tried-and-true formulas that have been used by professional makeup artists for decades. These formulas as highly pigmented, blend easier and produce flawless application. Our concealers and foundations are buildable.

My GO-TO complextion look is fresh and dewy as I typically like the more sheer feeling.  The best part of our makeup is that I can build from my everyday sheer look if I want   more coverage for a special event or a more dramtic look for the evening.

You Are Amazing!

Fresh Details


I absolutley love fresh cut flowers throughout my home as well as placed around my backyard.  I love using mason jars, funky vintage vases and galvinised buckets to arrange them in.

Before yesterday I have purchased flowers at our local grocery store chain which are typically pricey for a mixed bouquet and often not in the best condition. My new favorite place to buy beautiful fresh cut flowers is Trader Joes. I bought three bouquets and one filler for $16.00.  I frequently shop at Trader Joes and never have thought to pay attention to their wide variety of flowers, plants and herbs.

So the next time you are looking for flowers for your home, backyard, a gift or even a wedding stop in your local Trader Joes and pick some up.

Spring Thaw


I spent my Spring Break giving our bathrooms a facelift. What a difference a little paint and new dècor does for a room or three.  I chose a fresh color to brighten up dark and dingy rooms and added some splash of color with artifical flowers.

I found the wall dècor and flowers at Ross, Marshalls and Cost Plus World Market for such a bargain. Valspar paint in Spring Thaw from Lowe’s.

I added a new planels for our bathroom downstairs to hide our washer and dryer. I love the crochet detail on the bottom. The lantern adds some light to a bathroom without a window.

Looking forward to freshening up my sink area next.

As always, thank you for visiting my page.

Happy Spring!

NamaSlay


It has been roughly a year since I have been on my mat and let me just say it is good to be back. The past year I have been dealing with an annoying cyst in my foot that has made it difficult to practice, but now with a second dose of cortisone in my foot, I am able to practice again without pain or discomfort.

This past Saturday was my first morning back and I totally slayed my practice. I was stronger than I thought I was going to be, my mind was calmer than it has been and felt all around peaceful. I felt so amazing when I left my mat I decided to take a Pilates/Barre class on Sunday and slayed it again. There is a saying “When you own your breath, nobody can steal your peace.”  This is completely how I felt during and after my practice’s this past weekend.

IMG_0649The Center for Vital Living

My favorite yoga to practice is Heated Vinyasa. It is a studio room heated around 78-95 degrees. You typically expect a specific sequence of poses that smoothly flow together. You may also hear the terms Ashtanga, Baptiste Yoga, Jivamukti, Power Yoga and Prana Flow that are also considered vinyasa yoga.

I encourage anyone that has not practiced yoga or has been off their mat for a period of time to find the time to experience or reconnect with their mat.  I am most thankful I did.

Until next time -Namaste
