Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

Guest Post:  Michael Smith - Professional Photographer
With Valentine's Day just around the corner many couples are looking for ways to spend it together or ways to do something different for it. There is many way to express your love to one and other, but nothing is better than something that can last a long time. Many photographers offer the chance for you and your partner to be stars on this special day. With a Valentine's Day photo shoot you can really express your love for one and other and albeit not a gift in the norm but one that will surely garner excitement for you and your loved one.
Present for a loved one
A photo shoot is all about making the subject look and feel beautiful. Even if you don’t yourself feel attractive in front of a camera the photographer is an expert at finding ways to make you look stunning.  Additionally, you could make the extra effort and get a makeup pampering beforehand which will boost your confidence. The photographer is able to create a small personal album for your loved one as a Valentine’s Day present, expressing your love for them in a way that not many people consider.
An excuse to dress up and have fun
As mentioned, a photo shoot is all about you and about you feeling sexy. A valentine’s shoot can help you achieve this with a number of different props and locations there is never going to be a dull moment. Many people think a Valentine’s Day photo shoot is like a boudoir session and in some ways they are right, it all depends on what you want. The little things like a love heart cut out or an “I love you” on a piece of paper in the same image in you can express more than an erotic photograph.
A photo shoot is also different and more fun than most other Valentine’s Day activities. What other activity allows you to express your love for your partner in a simple but striking way? A photograph can express more than words can.
Something you can both do!
At first, a photographer taking pictures of a couple can seem intrusive and a little awkward, but the photographer knows just what to do to settle nerves and start producing those magical photographs. There is so many ways in which you can pose, just by looking into each other’s eyes provides the photographer with what they are looking for. It is that easy!
The photo shoot can often last for more than just one day but be warned can be costly in my opinion. . The images you get will hopefully impress you both and give you both something to cherish for the rest of your lives. The way you look and the sense of love from each image will only draw both of you closer. Photography creates beautiful images that stay with people for their lifetime.
There are loads of sites online that can help you research this type of gift so make sure that you use them to gain as much information as you need.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!) Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story: I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair , my hair style was a nightmare. My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogram

My Questions Answered By Chef Pati Jinich - Video

Rob and I have been focusing on finding foods and spices that will help us take some weight off.  I've been slightly obsessed with staying on my exercise track (on week 8 now :->) and hope to get rid of this jiggly belly that has become wa-a-a-ay too comfortable on my body.  The older you get the harder it is to lose weight.  What I would say to my 40 year old self - 'See that pouch starting?  Do your crunches and planks now!  7 years from now it's going to get ugly !' I've found that spices cumin, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes and turmeric are noted to increase metabolism.  ( Yes please !)  After a good workout coconut water is more beneficial in regulating your electrolytes, and lower in calories, than sports drinks.  It also contains more potassium than other drinks which is an important component in helping to build muscle which, in turn, helps you burn more calories. And my most surprising discovery - eating avocados help burn belly fat! I&#
