Lake Photography with Nikon D5100

3:16 PM

It's January and for a winter day, the weather is uncannily warm. Normally, the temperatures during the winter months in Sacramento dip to the 30s. With the sun peeking out from the clouds and the temperature slightly warmer, a trip to the lake for a bit of photography is what this girl needed.

With my trusty Nikon D5100 in hand, a birthday gift I received last year for my trip to Yellowstone National Park, I headed off with the family to Folsom Lake to enjoy the breathtaking view.

I'm more of amateur photographer. I've still yet to figure out the kinks, F stops, exposures, etc. With the pictures I've taken, I'm perfectly pleased with the results.


It's All About The Citrus!

8:56 PM

It's all about the citrus.

I'm not a big fan of the heavy floral scented soaps as they tend to overload the senses and especially at night when you're trying to wind down from a long day.

My absolute favourite right now is the Bath and Body Works White Citrus Supercharged Body Scrub. it's not the typical mild orange scented body scrub you'd get if you got the drug store version. It has a strong lemon scent and no, it's not reminiscent of the tinned MyShaldan car scents or one of those lemony household cleaners that when you get a whiff of it, it incites that gag reflex. What this body scrub smells like is reminiscent of freshly squeezed lemons.

I absolutely love this scent because it leaves me feeling fresh, clean and relaxed, especially at night before I head off to bed. It's also a pick-me-upper in the morning. The tart scent invades your senses in the morning, wakes you up and gets you semi-going until you get to your morning cup. Plus, the exfoliating beads help shed off dead skin, leaving your skin smooth to the touch.

So, if you're looking for a body scrub that packs a punch, the White Citrus from the Bath & Body Works is your best bet.
