Black and white photography is amazing to me because you can change the whole look and feel of a picture. I think it’s because in color photography, you need less of an imagination because red is red and you don’t question it. Black and white photos leave everything up to the viewer’s imagination and maybe that’s why it seems more in-depth to me.
When my kids were really young I’d make time to sit back and watch them play. One day on a cold and dreary Georgia winter day I took apart some shoe boxes. My two girls asked me what I was doing and I told them to get their markers because we were going to make some masks. I don’t remember why I ended up tracing out dinosaur heads that afternoon. They had such a fun time coloring the masks after I cut them out for them. Then for days after, they put on their masks and chased each other all over the place. Enjoy your Sunday and look back on pictures of your kids when they were smaller and see what good memories come back.
Day 26 Question 26: What is one buzzword or phrase that was highly popular during your teen years?
Answer: I’m not going to mention one phrase but several because how can we forget the 80’s were all about excess right? My favorite 80’s phrase was …No Duh! That sums it all up for me 🙂
Phrases and Buzzwords of the 1980’s :
‘Bag Your Face!’

Day 24 Question #24: Clothing trends and styles come and go but each of us has a favorite. What has been your favorite clothing trend/style over the years?
Answer: I studied fashion design in college so I decided to pick a fun question for today. I can look all the way back to high school for this one. No, it’s certainly NOT the ’80’s hair!
I remember layering back then and that’s something I still do. Layering is cool because you can change your look quickly by simply adding or taking away, be it tops, bottoms or accessories.
I am a HUGE fan of accessories.
When I want to freshen up my look I always reach for one of my scarves. I believe that you don’t need to have a huge wardrobe. If you pick clothes with basic lines and colors, you can use those as a blank canvas with which to create your look by using accessories. When I want to add to my wardrobe, I go shopping for accessories.
Now that the weather is cooler, you can put more layers on.
Since I live in the desert, I LOVE this time of year because I really get to wear somethings that have to go into hibernation in our triple digit summer temps. My favorite way to layer in the summer is by using basic tee’s and throwing a blouse or light weight, sheer poncho over them. Layering works in the heat because as you perspire, the underneath layer traps the moisture and keeps it away from your body, thereby keeping you cooler. This really works when you wear a 100% t-shirt or cami. Layering works in all kinds of weather. Above all, layering gives an added dimension to any look.
