Lawnmowers and Hikers


It's hot outside. I'm craving a trip to the beach but none of my friends dare to go to the beach on Memorial Day weekend; parking is impossible and finding a decent spot on the beach will be hell. Why does the weather have be perfect for the shore this weekend? Why?!?


As you can see, it took some time for me to get the hang of self-portraits without a remote. The first few pictures aren't completely focused while the rest of the pictures are. I realized I would have to use manual focus instead of auto focus and it worked a lot better. 

While taking pictures I thought it'd be funny if I took a shot of me jumping. Right after taking the shot, I turned around, and the lawnmower was staring at me. Definitely didn't realize he was mowing the lawn. By the way, I'm at a park near my house. You'll see a lot more of my town with my summer pictures. 

I'm now going to try to enslave all my various friends as photographers. More and more of them are slowly learning about my blog and it's hard to keep it hidden from my friends. I'm learning to stop being so embarrassed about it as well.


You know what I haven't done in a while? A good ol' giveaway. I'm gonna start concocting some ideas! :)

Oh! And just a quick shout out to my newest sponsor, Aimi Boutique! They have the cutest apparel, shoes, and accessories (it's where Jasmine got the Robot necklaces for our latest Dynamic Duo)! Check them out! (could that sentence have any more links? haha)

  1. Aww this is too adorable :) You and Jasmine are probably the cutest dynamic duo EVAR. I'm kind of... embarassed about my blog still, but people are finding out about it. It's hard to NOT be awkward about it when you're asked in person about it. I'm going to have to recruit some friends to take photos for me soon too! They're all moving away for school, boo!!!

  4. Wow the print on your dress is adorable, and I love your shoes! Haha I've been stuck taking self-timer pictures in front of the same background forever, probably because I'm too embarrassed to ask my friends to take my outfit pictures, then having to explain why I need my outfits photographed :)

  6. Have to agree with everyone and say that I love the fish print. Tooo adorable. And I love jumping shots! And it's all too embarrassing when someone random sees you do them... but they're so much fun if you get a good one :)

  11. Jen, you are so freakin' adorable! I don't think you have any reason to be "embarassed" about your blog. :)... but then again... not too many of my friends know about mine (just the close ones), so maybe I kinda understand what you mean. Congrats on your new sponser. Yipee!

    xx Love & Aloha

  43. Don't be embarressed about your blog! Trust me. I know exactly how you feel--I was way too embarressed to tell anybody, but then it turned out that my friends and family were my greatest fans! (My boyfriend is the very one who coaxed me into telling people about it). They're really supportive. And your blog is so successful and your style is adorable, I don't understand how you could ever be shame! Keep up the amazing work.
