Food, Fashion, Fitness & A little Organizing

Welcome 2012! 
I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday season.
I really enjoyed this holiday with my family, my two special little boys made it even better.

This season on Dustylu, we are going to spice things up a bit. I will be continuing with interior photography and my latests projects and publications but, I also
wanted to add some of my favorite fashions ideas, fitness programs, portrait photography, lifestyle, etc.

In addition, I will be contributing to a magazine for food photography but, more on that later.  
2012 is going to consist of some new journeys for me, and I can't wait to share them with you.
I want my blog to be diverse, exciting and I welcome any feed back and would love
to hear from my reader's. 

Donna Hay is a great chef and has amazing cookbooks.
I LOVE Donna Hay fast, fresh, simple kids' magazine.
It is loaded with ideas on what to cook for the kids.
Now that Luke is ready for food,
 I am cooking more often and 
it gets tough sometimes to come up with ideas they
 can eat that are fresh and healthy.

This is a great cook book for baby's and toddler's. You can

Sienna Miller is one of my favorite fashion icons. 
I cut my hair like this but, have since grown it out. 
I am thinking of cutting it off again. 

Jamie Eason is one of my favorite fitness icons. She is 36 years old.
Although I don't like this much muscle ton, I love her spirit, faith and 
the fact that she did not let breast cancer stop her from per suing her goals.
She has made over 50 covers.

January is the the month to start fresh and to organize your home.
Here is a great link

Have a wonderful day.
