creation tip #4353748597

So, I dont' know about you....but we have clothing pieces we love....and me...
I LOVE TANK TOPS!!!!!!!!!!!! I love love love them.  I love all the shapes and colors I can find...and I wear them out...and sometimes, get rid of them....

However, there are a few tops I didn't wanna give up on...and get a few more wears and tears out of pulled out the sewing machine today...and did what I do....take that saggy old tank top and make it "new" again!!! 

I don't even care if it is a striped or can get away with it :)
For me, I put the old tank on....and gather it in the back..and guesstimate how much I need to take in...
somtimes really, it is just the backside you need to take in.  Or, if you have really gotten a tank that is too huge and can take in seams too! :) 

Anyways..............I flip it inside out...and sew a diagonal right up the back.
Thatz right !!! A diagonal!!!!  Start at like 3 inches out...(from the fold)...and then zoom your machine up to almost the top of the shirt. WHAMMO! done. :)

I've done 3 total now...and going to start another project too...of merging a tank top and rainbow dress. :)

My Little Calendar....

So I did a shoot a couple years back....and it was kinda focused around fitness and fashion...i had a blast learning and shooting...and troubleshooting everything that goes with big shoots/models. :) 

I decided this last week to just go ahead and print my own personal calendar of the moments I helped to was super fun...and i'm always going to be passionate about fitness. :) 

And in May...there is someone special there too. hhaahaha Well, we are all special, you get the idea. hahahahahaahh :)


sorta the "front" of the calendar.

Yep, that's me!

A tip for all the brides and their shoes!!!!

Have you ever wanted to just be COMFORTABLE?????

Well, one of the tips I gave myself when I was thinking about my wedding...was comfort and being able to WALK without hurting for hours and hours.

I think what is key is that when I planned my dress and wore went straight down to the ground...and you couldn't see my shoes.  I figured, why would i want to be in pain the whole time? :)  So i had bought a very comfy dress and years before, had bought WHITE platform skechers...which i might affectionately call my "frankenstein shoes".

Take a looksie here:

I guess my MAIN TIP is, the last thing you want to do on your wedding be uncomfy and miserable!   Find alternatives that are still true to YOU...and your style!!!  But don't be ashamed or afraid to say LISTEN! I wanna be comfy and party all nite!!!!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHA :)

I hope you enjoyed a little piece of my past.  This means, these shoes are well over 7 years of April 2012 I have been married for SEVEN years. I love you baby! :)

Much Love

There comes a time..........

Loving the days.

I am counting down the days til my vacation...I feel like by the time it gets here, I'll have "earned" it.  I know that is kinda weird...but sometimes I feel that hard work and dedication can have that "reward".  At least every year, my hubby and I simply celebrate every year we are married by jetting off somewhere without technology and reconnect.  I think it doesn't matter WHERE you go, but go somewhere you will enjoy....and reconnect with your loved ones. 

So, I have to pause and be back....cause I have a shoot with a GI coming up. :)

day one.

So i'm in san diego. These are the moments I choose to capture, right now.

sunrise.  6am flight.  "long morning"
sunrise, moments later - as time changes quickly.
I'm heading to California - and the sun is behind me, all the way.
Lord knows there will be dry places and hilly places.
But, in the end, my destination is clear. :)
