Snow, furry earmuffs and Hipstamatic

Did everyone have lovely weekends? I had a nice snowy one. As I've mentioned, early January is still in the honeymoon period for me and snow, where I get excited to see those flakes falling from the sky, and immediately dash out to take photos, and don't mind getting a bit soggy in the process.

Desmond, my camera does mind however. And my makeshift plastic bag coverings don't do a damn bit of good. I'm fearful my desire to expose my camera to all this moisture is going to bite me in the butt at some point.

This outfit is a total violation of the no repeats challenge, you've seen it all before. But I was having a challenging time getting dressed. I wasn't feeling happy or motivated at all. Finally I decided to do something I haven't done in months and months -- play video games and exercise. Yes, simultaneously. And Old School; Dance Dance Revolution with a mat. Kids these days don't need mats to jump on, they just have motion sensor cameras and whatnot, but I still like my good old DDR.

I decided to get the Hipstamatic app for my iPhone (a big splurge, at $2) and it is super awesome and completely worth my $2.

I couldn't be happier with how this photo came out!
And if you wanted to go to flickr and mark it as a favorite, I would like that :)

But this morning everything started to melt, and snow started to drop off the tree branches. Sad, since that is always so beautiful.

Starting tomorrow I'm joining Iris of 260 Days No Repeats in a bright tights challenge! Should be fun and a way to force myself to deviate from my typical blacks and greys.

Love both looks!
The purple dress is super cute, great for layering I bet :)

And repeats are okay by me, that first look is great (especially the animal print)!

Cute earmuffs! And those pictures in the middle were all taken with your phone? Wow, they turned out really cool!

Rainbow Tights week sounds like a lot of fun, but I can't count on our weather to give 7 days in a row where it'd be okay to wear skirts/dresses! I'll join in at some point this week though :)

Rad in BK said...

I love the scarf in the second picture and the lining of the coat. Your earmuffs are so cute too.
The colored tights challenge sounds fun. I'll try to participate a little bit.

Hipstamatic is one of my favorite apps! I have a ton of the expansion packs too, it totally just sucks you in :P I love the lining of the coat in the last photos! In fact, the whole color/pattern combination is so lovely!

Great hipstamatic shots! My hubs loves his too.

Jessica said...

Adorable ear muffs!

What lens/flash/film did you use for the Hipstamatic prints? I can't get enough of my own. Unfortunately I only remember to whip it out when I'm taking non-sober photos ... which I won't post on the blog. ;-)

I love your last outfit, your dog, but most of all the picture in the middle that you worked so diligently on...it is so cool! I am going to show it to my students...great job!!

collagevintage said...

Courtney Erin said...

I love your leopard print jacket! I'm also sort of sad that all the snow here is starting to disappear (your photos of it turned out wonderfully).

I laughed when you called DDR old. O no, 5 years ago! Technology wise that must be a million years ago...

Your photos are gorgeous! Will go home and vote when not on crappy work computer :)

Ali said...

Oooh, THAT PICTURE LYDDIE.. an iPhone app? THAT IS WAY AMAZING and I want to buy it now. If only my iphone wasn't old and cranky and would let me put new apps on him. Or update him. :)

I hope your camera Desmond can be besties with Sir Samuel. <3

And I love your furry ear muffs and the black and white you've got going in that first picture. You are beautiful, as are your pictures. I really wish it would snow more here because snow makes such a pretty background all the time.

I am going to have to pass on joining the rainbow tights week. I only have like 5 pairs of tights and it is hellish hot here....
On the other hand I ADORE your pictures. They are fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!
And of course CHLOE, she is the cutest.

Eyeliah said...

Good luck, I KNOW you'll do great. I've done no repeats since I was 13. I kept track in a notebook all thru junior and high school, all before the blog and for 2.5-3 years on the blog. Now that I have less than 50 items its just too tough (lol)!!
