New Profile Photo

I had this photo (and others) professional taken on May 2, 2012 for an article I submitted to a local magazine.  It was my intention to have my son take a set of photos for me.  But as we were preparing for the photo session, I realized that my son did not have a camera so he could not take pictures of me holding my camera (how could I forget that)!
 
I had my hair styled for the photo session so I did not want to waste a lovely hairstyle.  So I called a local professional photographer and he was able to fit me into his schedule that same day.

By the time I arrived at the photo studio, I was a bit sweaty and did not bother to apply any eyeshadow on my eyelids and lip gloss on my lips.  He did a great job, I am pleased.  The one above, I did not really like the pose because I see alot of websites and blogs with the model posing like this.  I wanted something different.  But as it turned out, I am happy with the results.  This next one is a pose that I specifically requested.

He charged me $75.00 for the session and he emailed me the photos right away as I requested.  I did not want any physical pictures as I knew I was only going to be using them online.  I used the first photo for my article and the second one on my photography website as well as my Facebook Photography Page.  I also used two others in my hair blog to show off the length of my hair!

A Glass Of Green Smoothie A Day

I recently learned about Green Smoothies and here is what a glass of Green Smoothie looks like.  My doctor told me last year that I should eat alot of green leafy vegetables. To be honest I have not been following his advice.  Drinking Green Smoothies, which consists of alot of green leafy vegetables and fruits, allows me to easily accomplish this task.  They are easy to prepare and trust me, they are taste really good. 

Some people have reported that they have lost weight while drinking Green Smoothies, their high blood pressure and diabetes have been kept under control.
 
I use vegetables like baby spinach, celery, lettuce,cucumber, kale, carrots, ginger, garlic, beet.  For fruits, I use bananas, strawberries, apples. You can be very creative when making Green Smoothies.  I drink a glass of Green Smoothie about three times a day, one in the morning, one mid day and another in the evening.  I have passed this wonderful information to my husband - green smoothie are good for our health  - he drinks one every morning.  

I watched a few Youtube videos learning about Green Smoothies and something one of the authors said that stuck out at me.  She said let's add more green to our diet and reduce white - like white bread, white rice and white flour!

At every opportunity I get, I intend to pass on the Green Smoothie word to my friends and family.  Read this article that I wrote about Green Smoothies for good health and weight loss.
