Guychie Collins | Indian Princess

My best friend's sister & I have been in the works of this photo shoot for a while now. I am glad we got around to doing it finally because she is gorgeous. I wanted to share a few (yea right!) photos with you. She is half Mexican & half Indian. My husband said she looks like Khloe Kardashian. We braved the semi cold weather here last week to get some shots at Lake Michigan. It was actually pretty nice out when we shot the images. A few of the photos where taken at a little building just before the beach. Enjoy:) 

P.S. I love her vintagy style.

Holland Harbor | Anchorage Marina

SURPRISE!!!! I am back with some photos for your lovely faces. Today I went driving down Ottawa Beach road by the Lake to capture some photos. Here are a few I took by the Holland Harbor; which Big Red is located. 




The pier off the harbor. During the Summer everyone jumps off of this pier. It's amazing!




Ah, there she is. Big Red. :)



Then I drove down the road a few miles & Anchorage Marina was located right on the shore line. I walked out on the docks to snap a few photos.

Marathon whatcha doing way out here?






I hope everyone is doing well & is healthy please visit my facebook page:

Moving day | Bye Bye Virginia

February 24th my father, older sister, & little brother came down to Virginia to help us pack up our belongings & move to Michigan. It is a chapter closed in our lives that makes me a little sad. I moved to Virginia from Maryland in 2010 to be closer to my job. I got let go from my position & it was the perfect time to move back to where we are from. The good ole' state of Michigan. We had juggled around the idea of moving to Michigan for over a year. It was a go then a no then a go and then another no! Finally when the opportunity arose we jumped at it. My family was so supportive & willing to help us in any way. My family arrived Friday night & we packed over night & was on the road by 11am Saturday morning. My father was not having us lollygaging around lol. It was a great experience because I had to pay for gas for 4 cars, ride 14 hours with 2 cats, & deal with freezing weather. It was errr loads of fun! Here are a few photos from the move.


We picked up the budget truck & we got ripped off!!! I should have just went with Uhaul! Website said $320 for 4 days unlimited milage.....but I ended up paying $578 altogether!! Yea not happy!!!


My brother in a full truck!! Bye bye......


My father & brother loading the rest of the stuff in.


The hubby dumping all the trash & locking up.

Bye bye Virginia it's been real! A lot of good times. I made a lot of memories living down there & enjoyed it but now it's time to be with my family.

True Love | Vox Box Influenster

I heard about Influenster on I can't remember the guru's name off top but I remember Influenster. What the company does is round up all social media influencers to share their lifestyles with other influencers. When you sign up you get badges for social media sites you participate on. A few of them are blogger, youtube, twitter, etc; When you receive badges you have an opportunity to receive a Vox Box. Sound mysterious? It is!!! It's also exciting!

I missed the holiday Vox Box so I signed up to get the Love Box. Influenster will send you an email when the boxes are ready & they will ship about 2 weeks later. I got mine about 2 weeks after. Fast shipping for the east coast for sure. Yesterday my lovely mysterious box came. They don't tell you what's in the boxes before they ship them. 

Here are the things I received:


Stashes Herbal tea: $3.50
9 flavors
Acai Berry
Blueberry Superfruit
Cinnamon Apple Chamomile
Lemon Ginger
Licorice Spice (yuk)
Mango Passionfruit (yumm Mango)
Wild Raspberry Hibiscus


Kiss nail dress: $6.99
56708 KDS10


Gillette Venus & Olay: $8.99-$10.99
5 blades & Olay
Moisture bars


Ghirardelli Chocolate: $2.99
Creamy Devotion
Plus a dollar off coupon on any 2 bars.


Trivia: $3.99
Calorie Free Sweetener

Let's talk about the juicy deets. So basically I love all of the stuff they sent. It was like they knew me! I already us Venus so the blades & extra razors were a plus! The sweetener I have been wanting to try out. I have plenty of fruits to put it on & in my tea. The tea, ahhhhh, I love tea I have been drinking a lot of tea lately. It is calorie free & gives you energy. Ghirardelli chocolate is my favorite. It is by far the best chocolate I have tasted it. The Kiss nail art I am excited to try it. I have never bought it because it is over priced for stickers. I believe. 

All in all I am happy I participated in this & will in the future. They do vox boxes every holiday I believe or quarter. I am not sure but go on over to their site & sign up. :)
