Love is in the air and Valentine’s Day is not far away.
 
Instead of the traditional color of red, Zara and I found pastel colors of lavender, mauve, tan, grey and dusty rose for our themed shoot. She described the colors as soft and spring-like.
 
I picked the lace floral print skirt and blouse from the Couturist. The popular online site opened a pop-up shop (on Robson St. near Thurlow). After several weeks they will close their shop shortly after Valentine’s Day. However they will continue to serve customers online.
 
You may recognize Zara from her 2011/12 TV show called Life & Style with Zara. As a multi-talented individual she continues to keep busy as an Actress, Activist, TV Host, Producer and Model.

Yes, the Patriots won Super Bowl XLIX but they didn’t inspire us like the Seattle Seahawks. If you missed the playoff game against the Green Bay Packers, you missed a lesson in perseverance in the face of insurmountable odds. In the dying minutes of the game Seahawks were losing by 12 points. The natural inclination would be to give up and try again next year. However, the Seahawks used the following risky plays to score 15 points and tie the game:
 
 
    1. A fake field goal
    2. A two point conversion and
    3. An onside kick
 
 
The Seahawks scored six more points in overtime and advanced to the Super Bowl. The lesson was never give-up no matter how dire the odds may appear.   In the last 20 seconds of the Super Bowl the Seahawks had the momentum and appeared as if they would prevail once again in dramatic fashion. Unfortunately, a Patriot’s interception (which I felt was pass interference) preserved their narrow lead.
 
 
I would have loved to see Russell Wilson or Marshawn Lynch win the game for the Seahawks. However the post game criticism of Seahawk’s Coach Pete Carroll was swift and harsh. Yes, a risky play lost the game but his critics overlooked half a dozen risky plays that produced successful results. You’ve got to take the bad with the good. I’m a diehard Oakland Raider’s fan but I’ll hop on the Seahawks bandwagon in late 2015 with a hopeful eye.
