Blogging Pink for Breast Cancer

You're going to see lots of pink in the blogosphere today as we kick off the month of October which is breast cancer awareness month. I thought it would be fitting to find some gorgeous lampwork beads in pink so check out these beauties which you can find on Ebay here and here. Pink is a difficult color to achieve in lampworking or I would have had more to show you. Hope you enjoy and remember to get your mammos Kstylers. i will be getting mine next month, k

I have aways been a fan of black and white. There is just something so utterly classic and timeless about it. Take these vintage bags from Vintage In Style for example. I could use every single one of these today and be totally chic. lovely, k

Water Polo'd Out

You'd think I had been playing water polo all weekend with the the guys given how tired I am but I really have no excuse other than that screaming and rooting for 3 days straight is exhausting. Waterboy, number 2 in the pic had a great tournament. For any of you moms and dads out there thinking about a great sport for your son or daughter water polo is fantastic. Such athleticism but minimal injury potential, Will be back tomorrow after some rest and unpacking. k

Designer Dog Duds

Well I really don't know what to say about these "couture" doggie outfits from Puchi. Yes I've always loved beautiful clothes, I really do but I'm just not sure it goes beyond my own personal closet. Would I if I could? Hmmm, I think I'm going to leave this one up to you. Yay or nay. What do you Kstyle readers think? Should we dress our doggies in the world's doggie's finest or should we be content with their gorgeous natural coats. i'd love to know what you think, k

Doggie Paddle, The Photojournalist

Hi everyone. By now most of you know that my middle son is a photojournalist for The Mail Tribune here in Medford, Oregon and just had to share his latest assignment. To say his assignments are diverse is an understatement. But this one has to be my absolute favorite thus far. So to set the stage we have a community pool in Medford (right next to Ashland) which has started a very popular tradition in our neck of the woods. At the end of every summer the Parks and Recreation dept. drain the pool and just for fun and well why not INVITE any and all dogs and their owners to come in and swim for the day as it drains out for the season. So that was the assignment. Go take a picture of dogs having a great day. And if you want to experience pure dog joy just take a look at these pics. gotta love a dog in the water, k
