Noritake collaborated with Matthew Robbins and Sweet Paul to create an advertorial for the inaugural issue of Matthew Robbins Sweet Paul Weddings.  Here’s a look at the shoot day.

A beautiful color combination of white, grey, blue, and yellow.

Here’s a look at the gorgeous floral arrangements by Matthew Robbins.

Lovely natural light.

I loved these gorgeous menus.

Overhead bowls.

I really hope to have another chance to work with this team again. The final images can be seen here.

I have 2 previous posts with images from Florida Southern College: Frank Lloyd Wright Architecture at Florida Southern College – William H. Danforth Chapel & Frank Lloyd Wright Architecture at Florida Southern College – Annie Pfeiffer Chapel.

I have been a Frank Lloyd Wright enthusiast for many years. Not only was Frank Lloyd Wright a genius, but his life was entertaining and scandalous, to say the least. This Ken Burns documentary about the life of Frank Lloyd Wright is completely worth the watch time.

I was very excited to take an informal tour of the largest single-site collection of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings in the world, at Florida Southern College, while visiting Lakeland, Florida, back in February. Here’s my final post with images of the campus.

A network of esplanades was part of the original design and were built in the first phase of construction.

In the high heat of Florida summers, these are surely a welcome addition. These lead to the Polk County Science Building.

The Carter, Walbridge and Hawkins Seminar Buildings are also part of the initial phase of building.

A view of the other side of the Polk County Science Building.

The Roux Library and the water dome were included in the expansion of the original build.

The Watson-Fine Administration building , just to the left of the view in the last image.

I love when the buildings are signed.

A wider view, including the doorway.

If you turn away from the door, you can see the reflecting pool and the angular detail of Frank Lloyd Wright’s design.

A different view of the reflecting pool.

Lastly, a look down a long, partially-covered corridor leading away from the Watson-Fine Administration Building. It’s very reminiscent of the porch at Kentuck Knob, a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed house in western Pennsylvania.

Once again, I definitely recommend a tour of the Florida Southern College campus if you are in the Lakeland area. Next time, we will definitely take the official tour so that we can see the insides of the buildings!

Happy trails!

Part 2! In part 1, I talked about the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel at Florida Southern College. In this post, I’ll look at the William H. Danforth Chapel, one of the later buildings added to the campus, which is the largest single-site collection of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings in the world. This building was completed in 1955.

The William H. Danforth Chapel is the only use of leaded glass in any of the Frank Lloyd Wright buildings at Florida Southern College.

A closer look at the beautiful windows behind the altar in the church.

The side view. I am most certainly going to go back so I can take the tour and see the insides of these amazing buildings.

You can see here just how close the Danforth Chapel is to the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel.

I have more images from this campus tour to share. Happy trails!

I was introduced to Sedona Lace, a makeup brush manufacturer, a few years ago. I believe I heard about them because a beauty YouTuber mentioned that their brushes were great and that they were having a 50% off sale for Black Friday. I got in on the sale, and was not disappointed. These brushes are super high in quality and have definitely improved my makeup application.

You can imagine my disappointment when I keep seeing emails like this one that I’m about to share.

Ouch.

In 2017, I really don’t understand why anyone would still be sending plain-text emails that look like this. The subject line and the discounting goes a LONG way towards bringing customers in, I’m sure, but the presentation is severely lacking. Sedona Lace has great images of their products and should be utilizing them!

I know from experience that the cost of a proper e-mail service provider can not only help to manage customer lists, but makes it incredibly simple to create and distribute promotional emails to customers. I am currently utilizing MailChimp, and have successfully used Constant Contact in the past. However, there are many others to choose from.

I don’t have much else to say about this – it’s simply that I am still surprised to be getting emails that look like this from a brand that, from what I understand, is ONLY sold online, which suggests that their e-mail campaigns are vitally important. I look forward to seeing if Sedona Lace changes their email game in the future.

UPDATE! Sedona Lace has upgraded, only a few days after I wrote this post. See below for their greatly improved email communication. Congratulations on the upgrade, Sedona Lace.

Pantene Pro-V Silky Moisture Whip | Product Pick #16

by Jamie Sanford on May 25, 2017

Check out all of my Product Picks here. If you want to see all of the products I’ve reviewed (not just the ones I like), click here for Reviews.

During a random span of time a few years ago, I won a few different contests online. One of them was a Twitter giveaway of Pantene products, and today I want to talk about what has become one of my favorite hair products of all time.

Pantene Silky Moisture Whip

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have perhaps noticed that I change my hair color pretty regularly. My stylist highlights my hair and sorts out my roots on occasion, but the rest of the time, my hair is refreshed in whatever color I’m going for that day with Arctic Fox haircolor. The Arctic Fox is really moisturizing and conditioning, but obviously, the hair that has been highlighted is a bit damaged.

I had forgotten about the Silky Moisture Whip until I cleaned out my bathroom cabinet with all of the hair products. I immediately moved it to the front and started using it, and noted an immediate difference.

After towel-drying my hair, I squeeze the mousse-like product into my hair and brush through for full coverage. I then air-dry or blow-dry, and follow-up with heat spray before using the Tyme Iron to straighten and/or curl my hair. The difference was much greater than I would have expected, and especially for a drug store product that has an incredibly reasonable price.

The official product description is as follows:

Pantene’s Pro-V Silky Moisture Whip contains a Moisture Protection complex that acts like hair’s natural lipid layer to help: leave hair feeling moisturized for up to 48 hours, protect hair from heat styling damage in just one use and regulate hair’s natural moisture and gives silky hair that shines.

The Pantene Pro-V Silky Moisture Whip is available on Amazon. If you feel like your hair is lacking in moisture and shine, I highly recommend trying it out.
