I Heart Faces Photo Challenge: Summer Fun


I’m not a photographer. I don’t even play one on TV. But I do like to take my iPhone with me everywhere I go. And every once in a while, I capture the moment. It can be a moment in nature, a moment of parenting, a moment of puppyhood, a moment of life. But I […]

BlogHer12: The People


Oh, BlogHer. How I love thee. Yes, there are many emotions swirling after this year’s mega-crowded event. Some walked away with bumps and bruises and rude encounters (with brands AND bloggers). As for me, I walked away with a lot of swag, great scenes from the city and the conference, and a lot of mixed […]

BlogHer12: The Venue


The Venue? It was New York City. What could I possibly show you of NYC that you haven’t already seen online, on postcards, or in person? I can show you my New York City. And my BlogHer. Because I’m always amazed at the sites my little iPhone can capture. Here’s my adventure in roughly chronological […]

iPhone Camera Tips for Dummies


I love to take pictures, especially with my iPhone. It’s easy, convenient, always with me, and actually takes pretty good pictures. So good, that sometimes, I start to believe I’m really good at photography. That I have real talent. Because I can take pictures like this: or this or this and especially this But for […]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Springtime


  SPRING has definitely sprung!

Ever wish you could escape from it all? Run off to Southern California, if only for a day or two. Take in the sun and the surf and forget all your winter troubles. That’s exactly what I got to do last week. It was an amazing whirlwind trip as part of my role in TWIN […]

Shopping with a Keen Eye for the Ridiculous

I love shopping. And I also get a pretty big kick out of ridiculous things. I actually have a whole folder on my iPhone for apps I deem “Ridiculous” (iFart being one of them). But when you combine shopping and ridiculousness, it can be quite entertaining. On Monday, I went to Sears for the afternoon. […]

That Darn Cat

Cats. You either love ‘em or your hate ‘em. Personally, I love them but I bet you already knew that. And I know I’m far from alone. I actually had the good fortune of speaking at BlogPaws this summer. It’s a conference designed specifically for pet bloggers. If you aren’t part of that community, I’m […]

No one knows messy like I know messy


Most people think I’m a lovely housekeeper. These are my friends in “real” life and my family. They are the ones that visit for the holidays or stopover for a little get together. According to them, “my house always looks spotless.” I have a secret to confess. It’s because I clean my arse off before […]

My Life In Review

A day at the fair made for a memorable Sunday.

Some of you followed along last week as I devoted five whole days to every photographically mundane aspect of my life. What surprised me the most is people actually came and looked. And left comments! There was a link up every day with all of the other participants and while I couldn’t even get to […]

A Week in My Life: Black Friday


I actually used to think Black Friday was a bad thing. I mean, the color black implies evil and sinister, doesn’t it? Apparently not. If you’re “in the black,” you’re making money. If you’re “in the red,” you ain’t doing so good. But Red Friday probably would have made much sense to you. So let’s […]
