Great Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Mother's Day is just days away. What should you get Mom this year? Here are some ideas for some great Mother's Day gifts.
  1. Flowers are always a great gift. Why not try a bouquet of your mothers favorite flowers but in silk? There are some places that make amazing life like silk flowers and they will last forever. 
  2. Blankets or wraps. As we get older we seem to get colder. hehe I love wrapping up in a soft blanket and a wrap is like a blanket that can go anywhere with mom. 
  3. Herb garden. Does your mom like to cook? Is she a good cook? Plant her a little herb garden. It can be an outdoor one in a planter or an indoor one in little planters for each herb. Whatever your creative juices tell you to do, you can do. 
  4. Spa day! Give your mom a day to relax and be pampered. If you can't afford a whole day, how about just a manicure or pedicure or facial. She will thank you. 
  5. Jewelry is always a good gift. I am selling Paparazzi Jewelry if you need some. Lol
  6. Give your mom the day off by hiring someone to clean her house or maybe take a day and clean it for her if you can't afford to hire someone. 
  7. Wine or wine glasses if your mom likes to drink wine. You can put a book in with it for a relaxing evening. 
  8. Mugs or coffee cups. I know she probably has a million, but be creative. I use Shutterfly to make mugs with photos on them for a personal touch.
  9. Gardening tools. Does she like to garden? Give her a gift basket of gardening stuff. Even if she already has some, she can always use more. 
  10. Candy or other treats that you have to go to a special candy store or bakery to get, not just your local supermarket.
There you go, 10 great ideas for gifts for mom. You have no excuse now, show her how much she really means to you.

6 Tricks to Looking Better in Photos

I can't even begin to tell you how many times I have people asking me if I can Photoshop this or that out of their photo. Some even say, can you make me look beautiful. First, I want to say, you are beautiful! God made you in his image and that makes you beautiful. Secondly, I can do Photoshop but I can't fix everything. 
So, here are a few tips to take what God gave you and like what you see. 

  1.  Don't take photos from a low angle. If you are taking a selfie, hold your phone up a little so you don't get a double chin. This works for someone else taking your photo as well.
  2.  Pay attention to how you are standing or sitting. Stand or sit up straight and you will look thinner.
  3. Stand slightly sideways when facing the camera. Facing the camera straight on makes you appear wider and no one wants that.
  4. As well as standing or sitting straight, pull your shoulders back. This makes you appear slimmer and more confident.
  5. Wear vertical stripes not horizontal because they make you look longer and slimmer. 
  6. Take some selfies until you find an angle you like. You don't have to share them with everyone else, but if you practice, I guarantee you will find something you really like. 

I joke around and say there is a reason I am not on the other side of the camera, so I need to take some of my own advice....hehe. I did however start to use the tricks and take some selfies and I found some photos of myself I really like. Here is one:

I hope this helps you like yourself more in photos. Shoot me some of your favorite photos of yourself. I want to see the beautiful you!!!!

What to Wear!!!! Swimsuits

Summer is on it's way and so is swimsuit season, so I thought it would be good to stay ahead of the game. 
I don't know anyone who likes shopping for this one piece of attire that seems to cause such emotion. I have provided some tips to help you look for a swimsuit that will flatter your figure, so you will look in that mirror and smile. 😊
  • If you want to hide your waist, avoid a tankini. Look more towards a one piece or a bikini with a high waisted bottom to hide the waist. Also, look for a darker color. 
  • If you have a larger bust and want to make your hips appear wider to get an hour glass shape, try a suit with boy shorts. Not everyone can wear these, I warn you, because they can be uncomfortable. 
  • Another suit for a larger bust is one with an underwire and has a straight cut across the top with large straps. This look will minimize the bust some. 
  • If you have a smaller bust and want to make it appear larger, choose a halter top, triangle top or a top with embellishments on the front. You can also go for a padded top too. 
  • If you are shorter or are short waisted, choose bottoms with a high cut. This makes the legs appear longer. 
  • If you have a tummy pouch, a suit with a peplum or ruching will be your best bet.
Here is some examples:

Swimsuit shopping doesn't have to be a bad experience. It can be fun! Take some time to do more research on your body type and what looks best on it and you will be feeling proud of the body God gave you.

What Not To Wear!!!

I usually do a What to Wear Wednesday, but today I decided to put up a What Not To Wear Wednesday. Some styles seem to come and go very fast, but there are some you need to just avoid. Here is 7 things you should never wear:

  1. Men should never, ever where "jorts", in other words, jean shorts. They are so not flattering on you guys, so please abstain from wearing them. 
  2. Leggings as pants. I know this is a hard subject, but really, ladies, leggings were made to be worn with long shirts or dresses. Your bum should be covered unless you are heading to or from the gym. Sorry!!!
  3. Low rise jeans if you don't have the body for them. There is a certain body type for these jeans and not many of us women have it. If you have any belly fat, please try another style, because you are not doing yourself justice by wearing something that doesn't flatter you. You are beautiful, wear something that makes you look more beautiful, not less. 
  4. On the other hand, mom jeans are a big don't as well. Again not many body types can pull them off, so don't wear something that doesn't flatter you.
  5. The wrong bra. I am getting a bit personal, but you have seen that woman who wears to wrong size bra. Please take the time to get a proper fitting. You will thank me!!!
  6. Mini skirts if you are over 40. Sorry ladies, I am over 40 as well. There are so many other options for you, take the time to try one. Besides you want to look respectable....right?
  7. Spaghetti strap tanks if you are busty. A wider strap is much better for comfort and style. 
I am sure you will agree with some of these and disagree with others and that is fine. We each have our own style. What ever your style is or is not, remember the most important thing you can put on is a smile and a positive attitude. God made you. Be proud of who he made you to be.

Foto Tip Friday!! Ways to Be Photogenic

 This week I want to touch on something most of us feel we have a problem with....being photogenic. Now, we are our own worst critic. Most of the time a friend or family member will look at a photo we have just shredded with our negative comments, and say "I love how you look in that photo!" To which, we assume they must be lying through their teeth. Well, here are a few tips to help. I can't change the attitude of your heart, but I can help you make the best effort before you face that camera.

1.   Give yourself a mini makeover. I don't know what your routine is for washing your face and putting on your makeup (girls). By the way, this can go for guys too, the face washing part. hehe Anyway, take a little extra time before your session to wash your face and moisturize it. Girls, when you put on your makeup, take extra time to make sure your foundation and concealer are blended in well, and that there are no sharp lines in your blush or eye shadow. Do Not try a new makeup trick. Save that for another day.


2.  Focus on what you like about yourself. If you go into the session with confidence, it shows. Don't concentrate on those freckles you don't like or that you think your nose is too big. Only surgery can change those things, and chances are you will find something else you don't like after fixing the current ones. Plus, you don't have time for that. Look in the mirror, smile, and appreciate what God gave you. He doesn't make mistakes. =)

3.   Don't face the camera head on. What does that mean? That means, turn your body to one side or another even a little bit. Having your body face the camera head on does add that dreaded 10 pounds we hear about and often see in our photos. Angling your body makes you look thinner and most of us would love that.

So, there you have it, a few tips to take with you before your photo session and hopefully you won't dread it  quite as much.

What to Wear Wednesday!!!! Green

This is my last day talking about color. I hope you have 
enjoyed reading about it and have learned something from these posts.
The final color is Green! Green is one of those colors that either you love it or you hate it. You may not like one shade of green but love another. 
Green brings with it a feeling of nature, money, safety and life. It is often used with anything to do with health and military. It is also becoming a popular color to use in websites. 
Green goes well with pretty much any skin type, especially if you have green eyes.
How often do you wear green? What color do you wear the most? Tell me about it. 

Happy Clicking!

Canon made a lens for a short time and then took it off the market. It is very heavy and comes with its own tripod because a normal tripod could not hold it. The price....$180,000. See for yourself at
