I havent got my nails done in a long time, and I usually always get the simple french manicure but along with the hair change.. I needed a nail change so I went with a bright barbie pink and fun design! Makes me want spring and summer to hurry up already!!?

Its no secret I don’t like seafood, but I went out on a limb and tried sushi a year ago.. I love it! Of course I only eat Shrimp Tempura (Fried Shrimp and the ONLY kind of seafood I will eat) along with a vegetable roll. Ziki’s Japanese Steakhouse in Annapolis… NEW FAVORITE. I mean they put tempura batter on the sushi and fried the whole roll too. Who can go say no to that?2013-02-21_0005Once again.. Who doesn’t love a Nicholas Sparks book turned movie? Everybody does! My favorite all time movie is A Walk To Remember, and Save Haven isn’t too far behind. It was really good with just enough sappy love story. I didn’t read the book, but I know others who said they weren’t disappointed. Highly recommend paying to see this one ladies & gents 🙂

The Owlet Baby Monitor!

Have you heard about the new device created by a Brighman Young University student? Jacob Colvin and his team helped create a baby monitor that straps to the child’s food and monitors heart rate and blood oxygen levels. If heart rate significantly changes or the baby stops breathing the smart phone is alerted.

How amazing! Check out the website here!

“Tattoos have a power and magic all their own. They decorate the body but they also enhance the soul.” – Michelle Delio

Finger TattooAs an artist, naturally I love art. I think tattooing is one of the coolest forms of art. I value my tattoos as they will be on my body forever, and the artists who create this art. None of my tattoos have been or ever will be a moments notice decision and I will pay good money for quality work. My tattoos are wonderfully important to me and they mean something to me. This is how I choose to express them.

I currently have two tattoos. I love them and I can say with 100% certainty that I will not regret them. The first one I got is the Jesus Fish on my left wrist and the second one is the word ‘Smile’ on my right index finger (pictured above). My cousin passed away when I was 17 and the tattoo is in memory of him. The last movie I saw with him in theaters was Finding Nemo. I will always remember to “just keep swimming” when I see it. My finger tattoo was my graduation present to myself. I graduated from Towson University with a B.S. in Art + Design, with a concentration in Photography. My life will consist of photography being my career, my creative outlet and my passion.

Do you have any tattoos? I’d love to hear about them in the comments below!
