So I mentioned a while ago that I was planning on branching out, talking about more than just putting some fancy outfits together or sharing how NOT to do things. Therefore here is a new feature – Glammin’ up the … Continue reading
Ok, so this is a BIG pet peeve. It’s summer (at least weather-wise), and it feels awesome. It’s the perfect time for flowy skirts, capris, short sleeves, and open-toed shoes, sandals, and flip flops. It’s the time of year to … Continue reading
Yup, you heard right. I’m upping the ante, taking out the big guns. Being a glamzilla isn’t about looking perfect or never wearing sweatpants (because God knows, we ALL have those days/weeks). It’s about realizing that clothes aren’t just clothes; … Continue reading
So I’ve been thinking a lot lately (I know, dangerous…), and among many other things, I’ve really been thinking about how to make the blog better. I’ve been slacking a little lately, I’ll admit it. My posts are rushed, my … Continue reading
So apparently I’ve been in a pattern mood, and I didn’t realize it until I started looking through pics from this week. So it all started on Wednesday – I think I was possibly inspired by Sweet Pea who wanted … Continue reading
So guess who’s turning 2 today!!!!! Yup, Lil Miss Pint-Sized Glamzilla – my niece! I was going to refer to her as a glamzilla-in-training and then I could hear her sweet (yet angry) little voice in my head saying, “No … Continue reading
Growing up, my dad would always buy a whole stack of cards for Mother’s Day. Obviously, one was for my mama (um, duh?), but then there would always be cards for us kids to give to my grandma, one for … Continue reading
So I’ve been M.I.A. for the past few days… My coworkers gave me a to-do list today as long as the Mississippi. And then I went all deer-in-the-headlights and just got up and walked off… And then people kept asking me if I was okay… And then I just kinda zoned out. But all in all, it’s been a good week. A trip to Dave & Buster’s, went running without dying, and today, I actually went and got some photos done by someone who actually takes picture for a living – I felt like little Miss Fancy Pants!
So, her name is Traci, and I went to high school with her. She’s currently freelancing and trying to put together a portfolio. So she contacted me, and I was all like, sure! Poor Traci had no clue what she was in for…
Ya know how my pictures are all very similar? It’s because I don’t like posing and quite frankly even as goofy as I get with my family and my kids, I feel the wrong kind of goofy when trying to pose. I gave her a heads up, and yet, she remained patient. She asked me to make all kinds of faces (pouty but not full out duck-face), move all different ways, dance a little, lip sync a little (I told her it’s a punishment to hear me sing for real – like a cat howling, and every once in a while, my voice cracks like a little boy hitting puberty). And the outcome? Well, you’ll just have to see what kind of magic she worked! (She did give me a preview – she’s good!).
So what am I going to leave you with? Looks like it’s going to be an outfit from earlier this week. A little bit of girly with a flowy dress and a low bun…
Time has really been flying! The days keep going by so fast, I’m losing track of what day it is and all the stuff I have to get done. The plan for tomorrow? Oh, I get to help chaperone a school dance. Now why would I want to do this? Do you know how much fun it is to make all your students uncomfortable by fist pumping through the dance floor and reminding them to leave room for the Holy Spirit? PRICELESS!
Have a great Friday everyone!!!!
Thank God for dress down days! Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy getting dressed every morning, but the thought of wearing jeans at work makes me happy. I’ll admit that it’s totally tempting to wear some plain old blue jeans … Continue reading
There is really only one word that describes today: weird. Just plain old weird. It started with me waking up from some really weird dreams. I can’t remember all of it, I just remember bits and pieces – me yelling … Continue reading
