The Best Tips for Taking Amazing Lifestyle Photos

“Life imitates art far more than art imitates life.”  If there ever was a perfect way to showcase this famous quote by Oscar Wilde, it would be through lifestyle photos. Whether it be interesting people doing exciting things, or ordinary people going about their day, this style of photography aims to capture and preserve the art of a moment.  This is why brands love to use lifestyle images. Putting products in curated and styled scenes helps customers envision themselves using them “in real life” — the more appealing the portrayal, the more likely they are to buy the product. So,…

Using Style to Make the World a Better Place

Some would say that “things seem pretty dark right now” would be an understatement. And there’s no denying that we seem to be living in a particularly strange and dark period. Sure, the world has always been a scary place, but there’s something particular and grotesque about the world today. So is there any way we can contribute in order to make things better – for those close to us, those far away from us, and for ourselves? Sure – and we can do so by being stylish in the process. If style and fashion is your thing, then you…

Gift Card Contest: Gorgeous New Summer Dresses from AMI Clubwear!

We all need new stuff come Summer. I just spend last evening shopping on my phone because I’m completely over my tank tops from last year and desperately need some new digs. Now, I have the issue of finding summer dresses, something I entirely skipped last year and really wanted to catch up on.  I took the time to measure myself properly this time so I get some well fitted dresses and my store of choice is AMI Clubwear. It sounds like it may be just a shop to get tight fitting dresses for shaking your booty in, but it’s much more…

Warby Parker Sunglasses – On the Road to Spring!

Although it’s still cold in much of the country, believe it or not, spring it on it’s way and we’re back on the road to warmer weather (physically on the road as well as metaphorically).  We just left our winter cabin rental and are back to traveling the country, starting with a month in Oklahoma City which sent us from 30 degrees in Colorado to a balmy 78 degrees! Upon arriving here and finding the weather so much more inviting, we wen’t shopping our first weekend in town for some summer essentials: tank tops, sandals and some short shorts to…

My Perfect Day in Vienna

We had a nice 2 month holiday earlier this year and it was so difficult to choose where to go! We drove around for 2 months, spending most of our time in London, Wales and Southeast England but we also flew to Barcelona for a long week of shopping, walking and learning about Spanish culture. We had endured a long debate on whether to go to Vienna or Barcelona, involving the whole family, so long in fact that we eventually just flipped a coin. Since we will be returning to mainland Europe soon enough, I thought with the dreary weather…
