My Birthday and First Photos

Posted on: September 25, 2012

I decided to make my first outfit photo on the night of my birthday after going out to a movie with my husband. I know night time photos aren’t ideal, but here it is anyway.  I must say the movie we saw was awful.  I can usually find something redeeming in most movies I see and can not even remember the last time I felt so disappointed in the money I spent and even the wasted hours of my life that I will never get back.  A strong reaction, I know.  Now you must be wondering what movie am I speaking of?  You want to know what to avoid, right?  Well, it is “The Words” starring Bradley Cooper.   If anyone saw that movie and is a fan and can tell me why they like it, I would love to hear that perspective, so by all means please, comment.

Now, I do want to say that the movie theater I went to is my favorite local one and is unique in that it has a full bar where you can order a drink before or during the movie.  It also offers an assorted menu with basics, desserts and even the normal fare of popcorn and candy.  Every two seats has a small round table in front of it.  This theater is called Beach Movie Bistro and unlike a similar one called Cinema Cafe, this one offers stadium seating.  Also food must be ordered prior to the start of the movie and the servers do not come back during the movie.  If you want something else, you are welcome to go to the bar and place your order.  Cinema Cafe’s servers come into the theater throughout the entire movie and collect your money in the end.  Beach Movie Bistro servers all carry a hand held device that sends your order back immediately and serves as a credit card machine as well.  Can you tell I prefer Beach Movie Bistro.  Below is a picture of their logo which was designed by local artist Rick Romano.  Check out more of  his art on

Now back to my outfit photo and description.   Before I get into that I must note that taking photos you know you will be posting online feels quite intimidating.  Of course when I said that to my 21 year old daughter she pointed out that she changes online profile pictures all the time and has no issues with self consciousness.
