Things I’m Liking Lately

Today, I thought I’d share with you a few things I’ve been liking lately.

•  My latest favorite sneaker is this shoe:

I (ahem) wear my shoes right into the ocean a lot when I’m shooting.  For years, I was hooked on Nike Free shoes.  I’ve now fallen in love with Nike Lunarbase.  I bought the color shown above just prior to my North Carolina trip.  (This particular version with pink came out for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.)  They are so comfortable, and provide a little more support than the Free’s do.  I’ve already thoroughly abused my “new” shoes – mud, rain, sand, and salt water.

•  The Kindle Fire HD –  I love the new Kindle!  In August, I opened my old (first edition!) Kindle as I got comfortable for a very long flight to Kauai.  It had died.  The reset button couldn’t save it … it was just DEAD.  The timing was terrible since I had a five and a half hour flight ahead of me.  Oh, how I loved that Kindle!  Could it have been sent somewhere for repairs?  Possibly, but Kindles have been updated so many times over the last several years, it didn’t seem worth it.  When I got home a few weeks later, I replaced my Kindle with the new Kindle Fire HD.  Because my “old” Kindle worked fine for so many years, I hadn’t paid much attention to how much they’ve changed over the years.  Wow!  I love it!  Kindles have come a long way!

•  A Discovery of Witches – was the first book I read on my new Kindle.  I would absolutely never have downloaded it if it hadn’t been recommended vehemently by someone I know in the literary world.  Was it the best book I’ve ever read? No.  Did I find myself having a hard time putting it down?  Absolutely.  I would categorize this book as historical fiction.  The “real” history intertwined in the story makes the reader start to believe the fictional parts could have possibly happened.  Sometimes it’s just nice to get lost in a story, isn’t it?

•  Skin Medica TNS Eye Repair – This eye cream is expensive, but worth it.  Skin Medica makes amazing products.  Fortunately, you only need a teeny-tiny bit of this to get great results so a jar lasts a long time.  (A friend told me it has been rated as the best eye cream by somebody.  (It might have been “top dermatologists” surveyed by Good Morning America?)

I do know I really like it a lot.

•  Metal Prints –  A customer recently ordered a large (24×36) metal print of this Maui Sunset:

Metal prints … well, you have to see them to believe them.


I was so glad I had an opportunity to see this particular one in metal before it went to live with it’s owner.  Metal prints look like magical luminescent paintings.

I have a mad crush on them.

Would it be weird if I started plastering them up and down the walls all over my entire house?


Hmmmm ….

    The Young One had been bugging me for a Kindle for weeks, when I finally broke down and gave him mine, and bought a Kindle Fire. 3 days later, they announced the HD model.

    Yes, this is my life.

    I shall now go and download that book. (And I love my Kindle Fire, HD or no HD.)

    I bought Briefcase the Kindle Fire in August for his birthday so I know how you feel. To be honest, I like his just as much as I like mine.

    Those really are great looking shoes! Were they comfy for walking around town?
