Music Monday. Yelle

Music Monday. Yelle Happy Music Monday.  Yelle comes to my music mind today.  Yelle is a French band with an ElectroPop sound. Band member Julie Budet pushes fashion boundaries. She can practically wear anything and make anything look fashionably chic. This band’s sound seems like a perfect end of summer – not quite end of summer sound.  Listen to Yelle’s – Ce’Jeu.

Week in Pictures {strong}

Hello. We continue the Photo Project for 2014 – the random photos that I take throughout the week will embody a theme. In 2013 it was all about The Polaroid Project. If you haven’t seen The Polaroid Project video, please visit the post. My dear friend {Annie} gave me my word for this week {strong}. {Annie} and I go way back. We are grade school friends and have been friends since the 5th grade.  Early next year she will be expecting her first child with her husband Vinh. I’m so excited for them. She gave me the word {strong} because she has been lacking a lot of energy lately; she said she could use some strength.  Here is a glimpse of my week…

#Instaloves <3

We all know what Instagram is.  At this moment, it is my favorite social media outlet. People love Instagram for various reasons – seeing pics of their loved ones, discovering new photographers/bloggers, travel,  posting party pics, the selfie,  hashtags, visual stimulation, etc. I love Instagram for all of the above and more.  Lately, I’ve been following so many Instragrammers and I thought I would share my new findings with my own audience.  I love taking photos and sharing my own point of view – feel free to follow me on Instagram @sadv.  We will see if this is a weekly thing I can share with you, but for now I wanted to share 3 of my new Instaloves…

Supermodel and wife of John Legend – Chrissy Teigen is a fun one to follow. She has such a vibrant and playful personality and you can see that through her photos.  This is a girl who likes to have fun and doesn’t take life so seriously. #adorable

What is your Spirit Animal?

Animal Face

I recently discovered this mobile app called Animal Face. I’m so obsessed with this app I’m turning all my friends into animals with my personal photo collection.  I absolutely love it! Who wouldn’t want to put animal heads on their peeps?  You should definitely try it and show off your wild side. The filters are very easy and pretty much match the popular filters of Instagram.  

Here is a glimpse of my photos made with Animal Faces

Vogue 2014 September Issue

September Issue My Monday night was all about guilty pleasures – the fashion magazines and watching reality tv where they give out roses. I have been waiting weeks for Vogue’s September Issue to come out.  I finally got my hands on my own printed copy a day early.  For Fashion, the September issue is THE issue where fall trends are introduced and influence the direction of fashion. In the past, Vogue’s September issue has been dedicated for celebrity covers. The past few years Jennifer Lawrence, Lady Gaga, Halle Berry, & Sienna Miller have all graced the cover of Vogue’s September issue. There has been controversy over the years for Anna Wintour, Editor-In-Cheif’s decision to put celebrities on the cover because it sells more magazines. Some of the fashion world would like to see models on the covers. For the September 2014 Issue Vogue decided to put the focus back on the Supermodel.  The cover is graced by Supermodels Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne, and Karlie Kloss – the full cover folds out to reveal more Supermodels – Arizona Muse, Edie Campbell, Imaan Hammam, Fei Fei Sun, Vanessa Axente, and Andrea Diaconu.

Vogue September Issue Vogue decided to call this issue the Instagirls Issue – all models are very Savvy on social media and they are building their own brands and empires. Photographer Mario Testino shot the cover.  I only have thumbed through the 856 page September Issue. I can’t wait for this long weekend so I can read this issue cover to cover. I must say, with all the controversy and secrecy with the cover of the September Issue, I’m honestly underwhelmed. I expected the cover to be a little bit more fierce. I mean it’s VOGUE.
