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 Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
