Should you watch the WOLF OF WALL STREET?

Should you watch the WOLF OF WALL STREET?

The answer on whether to go ahead an watch this film is: Yes, yes and yes! Great film. It got all the emotions out of me. From laughter, to fear, to sadness- it’s a great film for a movie night or date night, PLUS it give you alot to talk about after.  Loved it, take your partner, and enjoy a LOONG night  out. Because did I mention the film is about 3 hours long!!!! THREE LOONG hours, but it was a great film. Do not want to spoil it- but I loved it! Great ending as well. So- buy your tickets, and go. Also I recommend watching it at a showing around 6pm- not 10pm because if you go at 10pm you will not be out until 1am. It’s a LONG film. Anyone else watch it? What did you think?

How to TAKE an AMAZING AND MEMORABLE holiday PHOTO

How to TAKE an AMAZING AND MEMORABLE holiday PHOTO

Over fifty still loving taking an AMAZING holiday photo.Your holiday photos always come out great, right.. or does it??For those of us who have taken a photo which we look back on and wish we never did take, here are a few tips to ensure your photo will come out looking great!1. DON’T LOOK AT THE CAMERA DIRECTLY. You want the photo to look natural, and easy. If you are looking directly at the camera, well- the photo become just ordinary YOU again. Try something NEW- because when you are not looking directly in the camera you will get a much better angle, AND a more memorable shot.

2. Always have something in your hand. Hold something, whether its a cat, or your dog, or a significant other- your hands should be around something.

3. Color. Never forget to add color to your photo. Whether it your clothes, or lipstick, color ALWAYS makes a great addition to a photo.

4. Make it memorable. Laugh a little, snap the shot.  Look natural, be happy, and capture the essence of the holiday. Take a picture with your baked cookies.  Snap a shot with you looking into the lit fire. Roast marshmallows inside, or a photo of you holding you photo from last year- but ultimately, make it something different, and a picture that is memorable to the people you send it to.

Follow these steps, and you will be assured a great photo, and next year when you open up the box of memories, you will look at it, smile, laugh, and remember how exciting it was to take that photo.

P.S. I always feel that playing music, while you take a photo just adds ten times more fun to the photo!

So, remember, its about taking the ordinary, and making it extraordinary.

Say Cheese!

Happy Holidays
