Been at the gym almost everyday since i joined. hit it hard and then i have been suffering from a slight cold for the last few days so i took it a little easy and now im feeling better so today i hit it hard!
25 min: treadmill 3.7 incline
arms, shoulders, abs, and squats
20 min on eliptical
and i did some tanning!!
My driveway the other morning! i love the hills behind our house
I have decided to finally join a gym again. To keep me motivated i am going to one a friend already goes to as well as getting the membership that allows me to bring a guest free everyday! Woo hoo Planet Fitness . Now i need the perfect workout playlist
I am in a period of waiting, sometimes when we have to wait for things it makes us question why we are waiting or if we are even pursuing the right thing in the first place. But one thing i have learned in my short life so far is that God never makes us wait too long for the answer. He always answers in His perfect time. the time that He is aware is best for us. the last few months have been especially up in the air lets say and it has been weighing on me in many different ways. But i know that in the near future i will be getting some answers and confirmation as per the things i am waiting on. All we really need to do is find beauty in the process and not become too hasty in our doings that we miss the day to day life that is in front of us as we wait for the seemingly bigger or more important thing. God tells us to delight ourselves in Him and He will give us the desires of our heart. psalm 37:4. What a beautiful promise that is. (maybe the reason i have it tattooed)

been so busy with moving twice in a month getting a new job, meeting new amazing friends, being changed ad challenged and getting a new dog. Wow that was a mouthful even to type. I promise i will be posting more frequently from now on. getting more settle in San Francisco and i will be able to go on more adventures and post some fun photos for anyone to see.
Sorry for the absence of postings this week. I have been very busy with a new something i got last weekend. i can't wait to post some photos and share what it is. All i can say is it is bringing me so many smiles and love to my home!!!
Night shoot in the rain and cold produced these photos. I really enjoyed this shoot even though i was a bit freezing, Ian had this idea and i ran with it. One of the best parts of this shoot was meeting Micah at MAC she did an amazing job on my makeup. She was such a sweetheart seeing her again at her BFs show a few weekends ago was really fun too. I am still in Tahoe with the family and i will post some photos also. Hope you are all having a splendid monday and great beginning to your week.
A full black and white shoot is now done. This one we did with a more everyday wearable wardrobe for myself. I still don't normally wear such a dark lip but wow i LOVED this makeup look. Thanks so much to Freddy Lopez at MAC cosmetics at Macys follow and support him here. www.makeupartistrybyfred.com . Well actually my camera battery died after about a hundred shots in so sadly we didnt get to be as creative on this one. I felt like right when i started to get comfortable in front of the camera again it died. But that is life right?

Sure hope you all are having a good weekend. I am blogging from my hotel room in Tahoe right now at Heavenly resort . Its super windy and cold out so i have resorted to blogging and continuing to look for a dog to adopt soon. Going to venture out to the hot tub later and possibly do a little reading. It is so much fun to spend time with the family though; my sister is growing up so fast i cant believe she is already 12 and she is bigger than me in almost every way. weird how that happens.
This was a fun super spontaneous shoot at my house. basically threw on some eyeliner smudged it up took down my hair and put on my cozy sweater and some vintage rings. something i have always seen and wanted to re create but never had the guts until now. hope you like. all photos by Ian Johnson and i did wardrobe and makeup on this one.
sometimes in such a whirlwind of life we can loose our joy and hope for the future. who can blame us though with work, relationships, health, bills, one thing after a another seems to pile up on us and we can get bogged down. When i started this blog i envisioned it as an outlet and way to express my creative side that hasn't been able to get out in a while. Even in the short time and very few photos shoots i have done i have realized i am passionate about it. I Love the freedom in photos and the playfulness in wardrobe and makeup i wouldn't normally do on a day to day basis. I have many inspirations but my number one is God who has saved me from the pit i was in set my feet upon a rock. All i do is for Him and i desire to bring Him glory in any way i can. with and in love.
