Lizzy’s Latest – Steve Madden Stecy Two Piece Sandals

wed-1-img_0821-finals

I have to admit, I’ve lived in Southern Maryland for many years now and this was my first time in Solomons Island.  It is a quaint town on the Patuxent River/Chesapeake Bay.  Very picturesque.  It is a perfect destination for a weekend getaway and/or a photo shoot.  🙂 (more…)

Solomons Island – Savannah, GA Adventure Highlights: Part 3

Charleston, SC is a city I enjoy visiting because of its Civil War past.  So, it was only natural for my Forever BFF, Tammy, and I to take a day trip there.  We left Savannah early Sunday morning.  When we were about 20 miles into South Carolina, traffic came to a crawl on Interstate 95 North.  Tammy exclaimed:  “Look!” and we saw an exit ramp flooded with a submerged car!

Last Saturday, I got to spend time with my Godson, Andrew, and niece, Kristin.  On their way to the beach, my brother and his family took a break from their drive for some family time.  The kids were excited too about a slumber party with Aunt Lizzy.  🙂          (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – Steve Madden Sassey Two Piece Fringe Sandals

1 20160416_162949 Final

I am a girly-girl at heart.  So, I could not help, but fall in love with these fringe lace ups by Steve Madden.  They are the epitome of sexy!  The flirty fringe at the toe strap is so playful that I found myself stretching my legs in a dramatic walk to catch a glimpse of the ever so subtle swoosh of the fringe.  😉  What adds glamour to this sandal is the approximately 4.25 inch heel (pretty high even for me) and the ankle strap lace ups.  I love the tassel detail at the end of the lace ups too.  It adds such a nice touch to this gorgeous heel.  (more…)

The weather was spectacular this weekend.  It was the perfect weekend for taking blog pictures and indulging in a history adventure with my dad.  We decided to check out the George Washington Birthplace National Monument.  Perched on the banks of the Potomac River and Pope’s Creek, the locale was perfect for a photo shoot.

St. Ignatius Church – Oh My Aching Back!

I never realized typing and texting could be hazardous to my health!  For years, I have typed head and shoulders hunched forward in front of a computer.  Then, when texting replaced talking, my posture further deteriorated becoming reminiscent of our more primitive ancestors.  Of course, posture was rarely on my mind because I never had any serious issues that caused me concern.

One concept I would love to learn more about is affiliate marketing for bloggers.  I believe this is an important tool in promoting my brand and reaching new audiences.  My blogger friend, Eccentric Owl, has a great post on affiliate marketing and I wanted to share her post with you.  For now, because of lack of time, I rely on word of mouth advertising from family and friends.  I also post on social media sites like Instagram and Facebook.     (more…)

Port Tobacco, MD – No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

1 IMG_9121 Final Cropped

As a practicing Roman Catholic, one of my favorite weekly activities is attending Mass.  I see it as visiting God in His house once a week.  Going to church is also cathartic for me.  Whatever struggles I may have encountered during the week dissipates as I participate in the Mass.  By the end of Mass my spirit feels renewed, my mind is clear, and I leave with a calming sense of peace.

Alexandria, VA – Anthony’s Story

1 IMG_8878 Final Cropped

Not too long ago, I had a heart to heart with my co-worker and good friend, Walter.  After commenting about how exhausted he looked, he revealed that his family was dealing with an unexpected crisis.  I could see the worry on his face.  I could sense the fear of uncertainty in his voice as he confessed that his younger brother, Anthony, 22, has been fighting an aggressive form of skin cancer since last August.  The cancer came back a few weeks ago with a vengeance putting Anthony’s young life in serious jeopardy.

Alexandria, VA – The Ballad of “Nan Goldin”

The majority of people I interact with on this blog are quite genuine and supportive.  Sometimes, though, motives can be deceiving and sometimes, things aren’t always as they seem.  A few weeks ago, someone named Nan Goldin contacted me.
