As I start my packing list for a week long NYC trip in September, it’s hard for me not to reminisce about the last time I was there.  It was Christmas of 2011.  I never shared my pictures, so it’s time for Christmas in August.  I.CANT.WAIT. for upcoming family time and #LuckyFABB!

Is anyone else headed to the #IFBcon or #LuckyFABB??  I would love to meet up in person.  :)

      Of course! When my husband isn’t helping me, I use a tripod and remote. Find a place with good lighting {natural sunlight is best}. Before I got the remote, I would do a test shot and use the timer. Hope that helps! :)

    Christmas in NYC is simply the best, you look dazzling in your beret and fur!

  11. After seeing so many movies featuring Christmas in NYC, I often wonder what it’s like to spend the festive season there. You’re always so beautifully put together. I’d hate to show a photo of myself on a normal day.

  12. Aww, have so much fun in NYC!
