Girlieness with a Dash of Photog

Photography, Recipes


Happy February people!

So much to say.  I’ll try not to leave huge breaks in posts, I just haven’t been getting along with my words lately.  Nothing has been coming out of my mouth let alone out of my fingertips and onto this blog.  I have been avoiding it like the plague.

Getting my ducks in order and running around for the most part.  I figured that the reason my camera and I haven’t been getting along is because I’ve outgrown the bag.  That’s one of the reasons at least.  So the mission for that began and my Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Home arrived yesterday.  Not.  Impressed.  I love the idea of a messenger bag style but this bag is not going to fly with me.  If I have it on my shoulder the bag will slide off, if I have it across my chest all the weight is on my neck.  I wanted it to work out because I was waiting impatiently for it.  After work I went straight over to a local camera store and checked out their bags.  I hadn’t even heard of Tenba and after lots of side by side comparisons, I walked out with a Shootout SlingThis guy did an excellent review on the bag.

I think I’ve found my match.

I’m a hard sell and I usually kill myself with research before I make my purchase.  Awhile ago I went on a limb and tried out some new skincare products because I’m in a new age bracket and thought I needed a little more than Cetaphil can give.  My skin was a mess after trying out Caudalie and Peter Roth Thomas.  So I put that mission on hold and went back to the loving arms of Cetaphil.  Then Whitney gave a review (I love her reviews) on Juice Beauty products and the mission was back on.  I got samples of the Cleansing Milk and the Green Apple Antioxidant moisturizer.  The cleanser gave me a reaction, red and blotchy is not normal.  But the moisturizer was wonderful.  I quickly bought that and I’ve been happy with the purchase ever since.  My Cetaphil cleanser will not be replaced anytime soon, phew.

Hmm, what else…  I used to knit a variety of shtuff back in the day and even participate in fashion events with my own little booth and everything.  Well I still have some adult hats and baby hats so those will be added to my etsy store soon.  Need to clear up some room in here.  I hope you are interested, they are super cute.

On another girly topic, Whoorl showed me how to curl my hair with a flat iron.  I’m still getting the hang of it and loving the results along the way.  :: tosses hair around in slow-mo ::

I got Gears of War 2 today but I shouldn’t be playing games.  So much to do!

Lastly, you must make this banana dessert.  I made it for the family gathering here on Superbowl Sunday and it was a hit!  So quick and delicious.

    Cute hair! Ok, I just got the banana recipe, so gotta try that out this weekend. I’ll be using OJ, instead of rum..I don’t want my kids stumbling all over the place and passing out..:)

    Oh yes Jo! Use rum because the flavor is so good. You cook off the alcohol, think rum candy lifesavers.

    I was worried for a moment.

    Ack! So sorry the crumpler didn’t work out for you! Though I’m really curious about the Tenba now…

    Also bummer about the juice beauty cleansing milk, but glad to hear the moisturizer was a go! :)
