Weekend Wrap Up 1-28-13
This Weekend Wrap Up is all about NEW VIEWS! New views of Design, new views of Starbucks diets and new views of Imagery!
New views on this blog’s Design: This weekend I met with a good friend of mine who is a graphic artist (Lisa) and we discussed some much needed imagery help on my blog, specifically the header. Since when I started this challenge I had NO IDEA that this blog of mine would garner so much international attention and that the few images I did have of me up on the site with my Starbucks cups, or at a store would be so representative of “me” to the rest of the world! But now that imagery is about to be upgraded with help from multiple photographer and designer friends whom I am extremely grateful for!
Lisa and I met at the Fremont Starbucks, a store I have not been to for years but we had an absolutely lovely time! The partners were very helpful, informative and nice and I hope to book a Starbucks Style session with one particularly stylish partner, Bonnie, and the store’s BIG RED “F”!
New views on the Starbucks “diet”: This weekend I got in touch with Christine Hall, the lady who lost 85 pounds with her Starbucks diet. I plan on comparing our experiences losing weight from the Starbucks menu to wrap up my month-long focus of losing weight.
New views on Imagery: I was lucky enough to get a photo shoot in this weekend with a well-known man in the local photography world. I got all dolled up and ended up hiking through the forest trails looking for the perfect “mossy-covered-rock” to get the image in my mind. I was playing off the green colors of the Starbucks logo, the great new green Thrifted coat I picked up from Lifelong Thrift and getting my entry in for the Seattle Times and It’s My Darlin’ fashion competition.
As you can see we ended up finding the mossy-rock and got some great images (and the photographer ended up with some SUPER MUDDY shoes and pants!) but we did get the shots that I was looking for (Thanks Dante) and I got a nice walk in the crisp PNW air!by
