OOTD: Flower Power

OOTD: Ready for my closeup

Gratuit

*This entry has been prescheduled to post while I am out of the country, so if you comment and I don’t reply right away, that’s why.*

When you work in Long Island City and are looking for places to shoot an OOTD, your choices are pretty limited. The day these photos were taken, Danielle and I meandered over to what turned out to actually be Silvercup Studios. Luckily, no one kicked us out! Alas, I was not discovered, and am still working my day job. Le sigh.

What you can’t see is that the light above Stage B was lit, meaning they were taping behind there.

Shani Asks You Sundays – Big Changes and 200 Posts!

Welcome to my 200th post! Funny how these milestones seem to keep happening on Sundays.

Anyway, last week 2 things happened. The first is that I had my last day at my job, and I start my new one tomorrow. (Wish me luck!)

The other is that I went for a haircut, asked for 2 inches off, since I knew my ends were still really damaged, and when all was said and done, she had taken off 6 inches. Or so. I’m still not recovered from the trauma. My long, long hair is no more. I actually choke up every time I see someone with very long hair. I’m not even joking.

(My least favorite placation is, “It’ll grow back” followed very closely by, “She didn’t cut off THAT much” [she DID], followed by, “It doesn’t look that short.” So don’t even try. I’m not saying it’s not a good cut, but that’s half a year’s growth, so it’s not JUST going to grow back any time soon. My hair hasn’t been this short in years My one friend who understood said, “It’s the first shower that’s the worst,” and it was. I almost cried. I just hate it when they take that control away from you.)

I have some OOTD posts that I’ve been saving up since I lost my photographers when I left my job, so you’ll probably see shots of my old hair interspersed with my new hair. (Then tell me it’s not that much shorter!)

So, on to this week’s question:

What big changes are going on in your life right now?

OOTD When you work in a very industrial area and come upon a building decked out like a yellow taxi cab, what else are you supposed to do but take photos?!

Shani Asks You Sundays – Big Accomplishment

Well, today is my blog’s 6-month anniversary!! *pets it* When I started writing it, I wrote about how I was a failed blogger and I did wonder to myself how long I’d be able to keep this one going.

And despite starting a full-time job in the the middle of all this, I still have managed to keep up posting consistently. It hasn’t been easy, and a lot of the time, it feels like a second job. (I come home from a long day of work…to do more work…) But I’ve done it. And I’m proud and feel accomplished.

So, today’s question:

What is something that you’ve accomplished recently that you’re really proud of?

It doesn’t have to be blog-related. It can be anything. Let’s toot our own horns a bit. 🙂

OOTD: Highland Fling

Affilier DSC_2171 I know that I haven’t really featured any lifestyle/life in NY posts lately. I guess that’s what happens when you get a job. With terrible hours. That’s not in Manhattan. I really haven’t done anything or gone anywhere. I didn’t even think that the area was a good place to photography my outfits, till someone told me that grungy industrial provides a good backdrop for “fashion.”

You tell me!

I have to do WHAT now?!

A new job has brought a new requirement: Carrying a laptop with me every day.

I tend to favor smaller handbags, and don’t relish having to bring an extra tote with me every day, so I’ve realized I’m going to have to invest in a bag that can carry everything (and not tear under the strain). But I obviously want it to be stylish.

So I scoured the internet for some affordable (and some dream) options. I haven’t decided on anything yet. Also, I need money, first.

Laptop bags

Which do you like best? Do you have to carry a laptop with you? What do you use?
