Girlieness with a Dash of Photog

thegreenjacket 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.
