Photo Blogging #Challenge July 2016 theme: #photographer choice #photoblog #fun #influenster


July’s theme for the photo blogging challenge hosted by was Photographer’s Choice.

The hardest part about this was deciding which pictures to use. When the theme is whatever I want to share, that is really easy but really hard at the same time. Without further ado, my photo picks.

Photo #1
I received a sample of ZzzQuil from Influenster to try their product I’m exchange for an honest review. Click here to see my review on YouTube. In short, this product works as advertised. I slept well with no drowsiness the next day. I participated in an Instagram campaign to post the product reveal and I liked the picture I posted so much that I’m sharing here. This is for the sleep lovers!

In my plants on the porch of my house, I saw a baby lizard (I think it is a Green Anole -Anolis carolinensis). He was too cute and was being so still, I wanted to capture him on camera. He darted off as soon as the picture was taken.  🙂 Can you see him? He blends in so well with the green leaves.

A new donut shop opened in town. I love their box because it is so positive. Makes you feel good about eating donuts. YES! I DO deserve a donut! 😀

Photo #4
I had to go on a business trip and I at lunch at Volare in Hapeville, GA. I love the colors of this plate. It is grilled Atlantic salmon with a blueberry reduction, honeyed goat cheese and a side of whole grain rice. The salmon was superb! The blueberry reduction was slightly sweet and paired well with the goat cheese. It was creamy and tart with a hint of honeyed sweetness too. The dish had everything I wanted in a meal: salty, sweet, tangy, tart.

My bucket/ Life’s-to-do list has one less item on it. I went to my first Cirque du Soliel show in July. Ovo was playing at the Bon Secours Wellness Area. I decided back in April that I was going with or without any of my friends. I sent out the text and asked who wanted to go, and a few people responded in time for me to buy the tickets. We had a blast and enjoyed the show thoroughly. It makes you appreciate the dedication it must take for the performers to have that much control over their bodies to master such feats.


I had a fun filled month and cannot wait to see what August will bring 🙂

    • I think that the Zzzquil is probably good for people who have trouble sleeping every once in awhile. I usually don’t have trouble getting to sleep but I move a lot in my sleep. When I tried Zzzquil, I was less restless.

      Check out Groupon if Cirque is ever going to be near you. Some times they will have special pricing on seats.


  1. A friend once said to me “you’re an amazing life liver” – going through your post I guess it’s safe to say the same applies to you!
    Thank you for sharing some wonderful moments! I did spot the lizard. Such a good little guy to smile for the camera before sneaking off!
    PS: we all deserve a donut! 🍩


  2. Terrific set of photos. Good spotting re: the little lizard. We saw Cirque du Soliel once, in Vegas. Same as you found, there wasn’t a bad seat in the place. It was their Beatles “Love” show and we really enjoyed it. Thanks for refreshing a great family memory.


  3. I think we all deserve donuts! 😀

    NyquilZZZ really is good, too. I don’t use it often, but there are times I need it and when so, it’s there for me! : D


  4. Oh my! Cirque du Soliel is on my bucket list as well. All of the Cirque shows look amazing. Yes, I found the lizard….because we have them at our house too. Glad ZzzQuil worked for you. On a side note, generic diphenhydramine works just as well for a fraction of the cost!
