Favorite Summer Camera

July 22nd, 2015

I have a bad habit of buying new cameras regularly. I do take a lot of photos, but not enough to justify my extensive camera collection. One camera that has been totally worth the space it takes in my purse is the Fuji Instax. This cute pink instant camera has been so much fun on all our travels this summer. There is something about light…

Best of Shreveport, Louisiana Dining

July 7th, 2015

Though I grew up in Shreveport, Louisiana, I have been living in Arkansas since I was 18 years old. However, I frequently go back to Shreveport to visit my dad and my friends.  When I go home, I definitely have an opinion about where and what I eat. And surprisingly, a number of people I know from Arkansas end up visiting Shreveport and always ask…

Fly Me North For The Summer

June 25th, 2015

I think summertime is beautiful from inside my air conditioned house or car and behind my tinted windows or sunglasses. That is the only time I enjoy summer. The bright sun gives me a headache and I sweat profusely if exposed to temperatures above 75-degrees for longer than 15 seconds. I avoid sun exposure to my skin as if it were delivering the plague. I…

It was driving me crazy; it felt like it was music that would be used for hypnotism and even felt sad. I remember playing Super Mario Brothers, Excitebike and Zelda…

This Little Lady Went to Market

March 29th, 2015

[caption id="attachment_3247" align="aligncenter" width="550"] Floors and floors of shopping. Miles and miles of walking.[/caption] For years I have heard people talk about going "to market" to see the latest trends for the upcoming season and buy for their stores. It always seemed so exclusive and exciting. So I jumped at the chance to go this weekend with my friend Amy Hester who owns Red Beauty…

Virtual Reality

March 22nd, 2015

I am not ashamed to embarrass myself, apparently. At the office on Friday, our digital team came together to experience Google Cardboard's virtual reality for the first time. I never thought I would enjoy the experience, or really even understand it. I was wrong. Though still not perfect, the experience was pretty cool. And fun. While most of our digital team members were reticent to…
