The perfect nude heel.
Christmas needs to come early in my home, and it must be red soled.

Street Art: Banksy

{Banksy - West Bank Barrier}

Exit Through The Gift Shop opened up a whole new world to me . . . street art. This documentary gives a rare look into the underground world of street art. World renoun artists, such as Banksy (who to this day is an anonymous street artist), let the camera tag along as they create art masterpieces on the side of buildings, streets and even curbs. These artists are geniuses and their trade is intriguing. Since watching the movie, I've been looking up images on the internet. I can't wait for my next trip to LA where I will be scouring the streets for these sometimes hidden gems.

Do you follow street art?

Feed Your Body - Veggie Juicing

Jimmy and I watched the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead last night. It was inspiring, heartwarming and educational. It was inspiring to see an unhealthy truck driver turn around his health, heartwarming to witness a community change together, and educational to see how much our society neglects our bodies. The best part of the documentary was that it offered a SOLUTION! Juicing your vegetable can be tasty and help you get your nutrient rich veggies everyday! I just purchased a juicer. (And no, I am not usually the person who orders from infomercials constantly.)

This documentary is definitely worth a watch and I guarantee it will make you think differently about feeding your body!

Do you juice?

Goodbye to Lemons and Laundry

After much thought, I've decided to end Lemons and Laundry. It has been a great journey, and I can't believe how far it has come (click here for where it all began). This blog has been such a rewarding and fun hobby for the past year, but the incredibly talented friends I've meet along the way have been the best. Initially I thought it would be a short-term project for a few months, then 400+ followers and 14 months later, I have been constantly inspired by so many things.

Lemons and Laundry has allowed me to
  • Connect with my high school friend, Valerie
  • Make new friends . . . A special thanks to Josie, Carrie and Katie for being there
  • Cry over the loss of a friend I have never met - rest in peace Bumpkin
  • Stretch my creativity and imagination
To all my friends and family, thank you for all support and for being loyal readers. You've inspired every single post for this blog.

Adios, Au Revior, Aufweidersehn . . .

High School: Sad It's Over or Glad to Be Done?

Hey everyone - This is Marcie's brother Sean. And I have a question for you.

High School. Just hearing this word can either invoke wonderful memories of a nearly carefree youth or can immediately put even the most successful adult into a cold sweat. So whether you were the prom queen that enjoyed her reign as teen royalty or the outsider that was counting down the days till your diploma was in hand, there is no question that these four years bring about some type of emotion. So why the nostalgic trip down memory lane? I’m approaching my ten year high school reunion and I have found myself thinking about the person that I was during my high school years.

I have a challenge for all of you former jocks, cheer leaders, goths, band members, and intellectuals. Think back to the days when your home belonged to your parents, when you had a curfew (or the creative ways that you broke it), and when the most exciting news you heard was in between classes.

What are your memories of high school? Sad it’s over or happy to be done with it?
