INSTAGRAM FLOWERS

I love flowers.  Honestly, who doesn't?  I mean they color our world, and that's pretty spectacular if you ask me.  In addition to loving flowers, I also take photos of them whenever I can.  At first I felt like this was cliche, but then I decided screw cliches.  I mean, really.  Do what you love, photograph what you love, and ignore cliches!  My theory is cliches were birthed out of observation and ignorance.  Sure, I get the idea behind them, but like I said, SCREW CLICHES and all their holding back power.  Anyway, I decided I'd start snapping photos of every beautiful, colorful, and amazing flower I saw.  Thankfully, when I don't have my Nikon in hand, I have my iPhone, so I really don't miss any opportunities for photos at all, including flowers. 

Here is a collection of Instagram photos I've taken this year that are floral, colorful, and (to me) beautiful.  I hope you enjoy!

LAZY SUNDAY

Guess who got an iPhone finally?  That's right, me!  I'm a lover of Macs, but I had Verizon and I liked them way better than AT&T, then they finally got the iPhone and my contract wasn't up, but yesterday my life changed!  Ok, a bit dramatic, but I've been wanting one forever (that one is for you, Marcus)!  Anyway, I jumped on the Instagram bandwagon, and I have to say I really like it.  I've taken some photos of my up coming jewelry collection (two pieces have been released on Replay, so make sure to go check them out!

Here are some Instagram photos, and if you want to follow my photos (I will be using this for everything), follow me at sarmcmahon.

Enjoy!  Oh, and I threw in two adorable creatures, too.








TASTE OF TENNESSEE

So, as you might have read I'm in Tennessee this week, and as promised here are some photos from my adventures so far.  There are way more (plus some footage I'm excited to edit when I get home), but I wanted to share some photographic goodness with you!

Enjoy!

I freaking love ducks.  These little teenage ducks are so darn cute!!

More to come!!  :)

CLEMENTINE, THE GREAT


So recently I made the decision, quite on the fly I might add, to get a precious little puppy. Or so I thought... haha, no she's sweet, just going through her terrible 2's at this very moment. Let's just say everything is chewable and peeing on my floors is becoming an art.

Anyway, in the middle of two jobs, running Replay, moving, and just trying to spend time with my wonderful new boyfriend, I took on the responsibility of this little being. She's wonderful, really smart, can sit already and Mikey taught her to fetch, but it's not all rainbows and sunshine. It's crazy, people always say having a dog is good preparation for having a kid (NO not having any of those ANYTIME soon), but I think it's true. I think everyone should have to have a puppy before they have a kid!

I love her, but she's no Sebastian, my sweet sweet kitty. He's so wonderful, sweet, and adjusting to apartment life quite well. (He used to be an indoor/outdoor killing machine. I'm sure the neighborhood creatures on 7th Street have let out a sigh of relief!)

Here are some photos of the Clementine, The Great! In cat hats... cruel? ADORABLE!
Cat Hats!!

"Aww, I don't like this!"

"Please, no photos!"

"Ok, here comes the violence!"

FINALLY

I finally feel like I can start taking care of this blog. Things are settling in my new apartment, Sebastian (my cat) has taken to being an apartment cat very well and Clem (my puppy) has been great as well! I can't wait to get it all in serious order so I can post some lovely photos.

In the mean time I'm super excited about my herbs. They are all doing well, but my Lemon Basil is showing the most promise thus far. I've never grown anything (I know, silly, they're just herbs), myself and it feels like quite an accomplishment. They reside in my kitchen windowsill & I check on them and water them every morning before work.

Can't wait to cook with them! Photos of the process and the meal will be posted as well.

I think I'm going to get some shut eye. It's been a hectic week following an even more hectic week, but the weekend is upon us, some yard saling, time with the boyfriend, and working on Replay and other projects is almost here!
Have a pleasant night/day, all!

MOVED!!!

Sorry if I've been absent, I've been moving across town into a cute little apartment. Photos will be posted as soon as I get everything in order!

Also my internet isn't very reliable here, but I'm going to be fixing that shortly. So much money to spend when you move, it's insane, BUT it will all be worth it. I'll have a space to call my own (finally, after 4.5 years of roommates) and I'll be more productive and hopefully get more Replay items and photography/web designing done!

Just a little update. Hope all is well in everyone's world!
