Red Solo Cup: Strength

This week was a really tough week for me for various reasons, including a medical scare. So this week’s Red Solo Cup challenge is Strength.

Strength means many things to many people. For me, this week, strength was being able to smile and keep it together while faced with difficult situations. I faced many possible “break downs” this week, but managed to keep it under control for the benefit of others.

What does Strength mean to you?



Red Solo Cup: Footloose

I know! I Know! I’m a day late and I’m sorry for those (one or two) that have been eagerly waiting for this week’s Red Solo Cup inspiration! This week was just soooooooooooooooooooooooo long. So when yesterday came, the only thing that was on my mind was Footloose! I think I listened to the song about a million times (ok maybe not a MILLION but a bunch) and I watched the end of Footloose (the 2011 version because it’s the only one on Netflix) a couple times because it’s just awesome and makes you feel like dancing! So if you haven’t figured it out yet, this week’s inspiration is FOOTLOOSE! I channeled my inner Kevin Bacon with my grey sweater, bleached jeans, and white hightops to get my dance on. I REALLY, REALLY can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!


Red Solo Cup Challenge

I’ve been wanting to do this for a while and I have no idea if it will be successful or not but I’m proposing a new blogger challenge! I don’t know if “challenge” is the right word because this isn’t a mandatory thing that you have to do every week, I mean, it would be cool if you did but you don’t have to because I know how it is with blogging.

So here it is. Every Friday I’m going to post…something (see that fancy “Red Solo Cup” tab up there? That’s where the weeks challenge will be). It will be a feeling, a movie title, a quote, a song, a lyric, a colour, a place…WHATEVER. Anything that inspired me that week. All you have to do is interpret that however you want and take a beautiful picture (nudity allowed but as long as it’s tastefully moderate). Pretty simple, right? Each week, with the bloggers permission, I’m going to add my favourite picture of the week to the Red Solo Cup Challenge Page (that fancy tab up there, remember?).

I don’t know how long this challenge will last but as an added incentive, at the end of 4 weeks (so May 9th) I will pick my most favourite photo submitted to the Flickr group and that talented blogger will receive 1000$L from yours truly! So I think that covers everything…. If you have any questions, leave a comment and I’ll do my best to provide an answer!

So it’s Friday and the challenge starts now! The inspiration for this week is a Dave Matthews lyric from the song You & Me, “We’re gonna ride the blue all the way to the end of the world”  This is one of my favourite songs by DMB and I’ve been sitting on this picture from the Neva River sim which I actually took while listening to this song.


So I hope you’ll join my challenge and have fun will doing it! Can’t wait to see your beautiful pictures!
