I Love the Internets!!!

My internet is back and I'm glad to be catching up on my blogging and reading other people's blogs. I never really knew how much I used the Internet until my roommate's router was down. I couldn't blog, check my email or watch Netlfix. It was a sad week. I'm glad it's over. This weekend I had a chance to go down to Big Bear and snowboard. I live about 2-3 hours away but it took us 15 hours to get there because of the extreme conditions. It was really worth it though and I'm glad I went.

Me, Andrea, Rosa
I had a blast at Big Bear and with this being my 4th time snowboarding, I think I'm getting better at it. I need to work out my legs because I had to keep taking breaks on the mountain because my legs got tired very quickly. I hope I'm able to go again this season.
Happy Monday!

I've been away for a while involuntarily. I haven't had internet since last week due to my roomate's router. He hasn't been home to fix it and I'm not sure when he'll be back. It's a bit frustrating but here's nothing I can do. I wanted to update my shop this week but now it looks like it won't happen until the end of the month. I'm at school right now and getting ready to leave. As soon as I get the Internet at home, I will do a post.
Happy rainy Wednesday.

Hi hi. Today was my first day of class and I learned a ton! I'm taking a color correcting class so I can learn how to tone my images. I'm in my last year of school and barely learning this...and it's an elective. It's pretty ridiculous! It should be a requirement and one of the first classes you take in a photography school. I guess when you're a visual journalism major, color correction isn't a priority. Whatever. Enough of my rant, I'm just glad to be taking this class.

Moving on, I have 35 followers! Yay! Thank you for reading my blog and even having an interest in it. This is the only place I can express myself creatively and to share my passion for photography and crafts so I'm thankful and glad that other people feel the same. I'm thinking of doing my first giveaway when I hit 50 followers. It will be a good giveaway, I already have some ideas brewing. For now, I'll get back to my crocheting. I'm making neck warmers in hopes that it will be a teeny bit colder here in Ventura, otherwise they will be gifted to my sister who now lives in Iowa. She'll definitely need them more than me!

Better Late Than Never

That's the thing with film, no instant gratification. I finally got around to developing and scanning my New Year's photo that I took with my Lomo Fisheye. I love it because it came with different colored gels for the flash to give different effects. We didn't have any big plans for New Year's, just went to a house party with my guy and friends. Here are my images.

My besties, Heidy and Rosa.

...Or Happy Monday.

I have a lot of favorite blogs that I read everyday. Sometimes, it's hard to try and read all of them. One of my daily reads is The Clothes Horse. Rebecca has killer style and especially inspires me to figure out what my personal style can be. With Style School starting today, it will be one of my goals to solidify my personal style whether it be fashion or anything else that I do in life. Take a look at a few pictures from Rebecca's blog then hop on over to her blog for some fashion inspiration.

I took a free crocheting class today. I kind of know how to already but I just wanted to make sure I really knew how to make scarves. I was a little off, but not too bad. I'm 1/4 of the way through, I can't wait to finish it and wear it.

The class I took was at The Little Knittery where I also bought pom pom makers.

Have a happy Sunday! I have to get packin', school starts on Tuesday and I need to get back home.

Leggings Galore

I love tights/leggings. I love them especially when they are bright, colorful and patterned. After wearing tights with my dresses, I can't see myself wearing dresses without them, my legs feel naked. Here are some images that inspire me and might male my collection grow.

Boo for Me!

I have been really bad blogger. I got a job during my winter break so that has kept me busy. Luckily, today was my last day. I haven't even talked about how my Christmas went or anything. Well, I got a lot of goodies and one of my favorite gifts was this:

I got a weighted hula hoop for exercising. I haven't done it since I was a kid but I can last a while with it.
I also got a few crochet books that I need to start reading...or learn to read.
My New Years went pretty well also. I spent it with my guy and friends. I only took pictures with my Lomo Fisheye and I just developed my pictures today. I need to scan and upload those babies this weekend.
This week I purchased this:

I just had to because it takes 35mm film instead of 120N film which for me, is difficult to load. I love it, it's so much fun.
I also bought some colorful tights at Target. Later tonight, I will dedicate a post to tights. I love them sooo much. I prefer them over jeans. Time for dinner now.
