As I just read my title I thought “These are not really secrets”……..well, maybe some……….but mostly things I have learned along the way as well as some of the “action” that happens behind the scenes.
So without further ado…………
1.) My photographer is my 18 year old son who is one of the nicest people I know. Since launching my blog 2 years ago, we have learned so much together like the ever dreadful “Seeing your photographer’s shadow in your picture” shot.
2.) I try not to take my pictures in a bad mood as I feel you can see your demeanor through your eyes which will result in a bad photo; however, there are times when my 3 year old is running around in the background and I have to stop and say “Put that down!!!” or “Don’t touch that!!!” or his full name “Cameron Josiah Turner!!!”. We generally take a short 10 to 15 minute break afterwards if a full name situation arises. 🙂
3.) I have a “What I wear to work all the time” section and a “Blog worthy post” section in my closet…………sometimes they co-mingle, it just really depends.
4.) If I am having a fight with my hair for the week (oh, you don’t fight with your hair?) you may not see many blog posts from me. If my hair doesn’t look good, it really doesn’t matter what I’m wearing does it?

5.) Sometimes it is challenging being a fashion blogger, a working Mother, a chef, a maid, and a superhero all in the same week. Just keeping it real.
