It is always in the winter that I miss summer the most. And what a pity that so many summers have passed and been wasted. But no more. I will make the most of this summer. I’m going to become a beach bunny. Wake up early, ride the bus to the beach and train to become a lifeguard. Become a lifeguard? My friends all laughed when I told them. And honestly, I don’t think any surf rescue group will want me to join them. But it is after all a goal. And goals are not always to be achieved. Sometimes they are just there to motivate and make you work harder. And this beach bunny will work hard. She has the perfect sporty swimsuit and a great goal. So see you in the water!
Oh another Christmas in the summertime. Where everyone is outdoors with their barbeques, the sun is bright and the beach is swarming with people. These are what my Christmases are like down under in Australia. We don’t have the traditional cozy Christmas sipping hot chocolate and toasting marshmallows by the fireplace. Even though our summer Christmases are warm and outdoors, it is still always with family. My teenage brother is offering to cook Christmas dinner this year, so pray for me.
~~~ MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE! ~~~~
Vest don’t have to be reserved for crusty old men. Embrace a structured vest for a polished look. It will add a new kind of sophistication to your wardrobe. Wear some heeled boots for a sexier feel or a high collar for more sophistication and class. And if you have one that’s long enough, wear it as a dress.
This is the last of a series of editorials shoots I worked on featuring the exotic designs from IXIAH. It was a long and tiring day walking up and down the sand dunes. But such a magical place. Where everything around me was natural. I knew that all the shapes and all the colors around me had formed slowly over thousands of years. A place where the sky meets the sand. The tender blue meets the fierce soil. The moist clouds meet the dry land. Two opposites in perfect harmony. If only all parts of the world were just like this..
I have always loved oil paintings for their tradition, depth and beauty. I long to step into a beautifully painted landscape of sparkling waterfalls, leaves rustling in the wind and vibrant fields of sunflowers and daisies. For a painting can capture so much movement and so much life that it draws me in so close until I simply must step in and explore. Sometimes a painting can capture more atmosphere, more perspective and a deeper story than a camera. I don’t know whether it is the texture or the colors or the brush strokes that brings the life into a painting, but I truly appreciate the fine aesthetics that go into it.
We all wear denim during a laid back and casual day. It’s so easy to throw on some denim as you rush out of the house. But what if you want a day to night look. You can keep the denim on and just style it to perfection. Add a nicely tailored blazer with a matching bag, button up the denim collar and put on some classic heels. Sometimes it is a pain to have to change from a casual outfit to a night outfit, so cheat your way out of it by a little bit of styling.
