Travel Missteps: Snack for a Sheep

By |March 4th, 2019|Categories: Travel, Travel Missteps|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

  It will make for a cute photo, someone said, as I was handed a sheep. For a brief moment I cuddled with it, like it was a puppy. But the hungry animal saw my hair, and started eating it like it was grass. It wouldn't let go, and my mother continued to snap photos as I tried to figure out some way to get the sheep to stop or a way to set it down. The shepherd just laughed and laughed as the sheep snacked away. My hair felt pretty disgusting after that, but...the photos are pretty funny. Travel Missteps

Souvenir Saturday: Little Moons Bracelet

I wrote about the time I was in Aswan, I got shown around by a local to "his family's stores" but ended up finding a wonderful shop that had everything I needed. One of those items was this beautiful bracelet with little moons all over it. I love it! Souvenir Saturday is an every-other week series on the items that represent travel memories.

Travel Missteps: The Lost Sunglasses x6

Showing off my new cute sunglasses! I was happy to find them the day before because I had already had one pair of sunglasses break (and ducktape wasn't enough to fix them), and I had left another pair at a hotel, and lost another pair. So this is sunglasses number 4 for a short trip. And I loved these glasses. Cute, cheap, but still polarized! Of course, they didn't last long. I tried to hold onto them as we all hung out in the waves. All it took was a huge wave and bam they were gone. I was forced

Souvenir Saturday: White Tigers of the Secret Garden

As a child I loved White Tigers (I was unaware they were due to selective breeding) to the point that I demanded to be cast as a White Tiger in the kindergarten "Old McDonald Had A Farm" production (but was denied and instead cast as a horse.) So in 2011 when I was in Las Vegas I was excited to visit Siegfried and Roy's Secret Garden to see their White Tigers. To commemorate the visit I got a sweatshirt, a shirt, and a fuzzy magnet! Souvenir Saturday is an every-other week series on the items that represent travel memories.

This was one of my first projects in a high school where you lay objects on a piece of photo paper, then expose it to light. I brought in a mix of real and fake seashells, coral, and keychains to make this scene and I think it turned out pretty well! Every Friday Lili shares her favorite photography & the stories behind the photos.

Museum Monday: Dior’s Palladium Dress

By |February 11th, 2019|Categories: Museums, Pop Culture, Travel|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |Comments Off on Museum Monday: Dior’s Palladium Dress

Denver Art Museum has an exhibit called Dior: From Paris to the World right now and it's really well done. Each space has its own style, lighting, and music. I spent hours going through the exhibit. One dress I was excited to see in person is this dress, the Palladium Dress from Dior's 1992 collection. It served as the main inspiration for Sailor Moon's Princess Serenity dress. In fact the creator Naoko Takeuchi based many of the outfits or drawings on fashion pieces. There is less than a month left in the exhibit. I highly recommend that you check it out. Museum Monday is
