GOOD MORNING LADIES,
I wanted to give a little life update on things around here at Blank Slate. Also sharing with you some links I love. We are out of the gate fast this and year doesn’t look like its slowing down. I am really excited to be BACK IN SCHOOL for my second semester at FCC working on Photography, Film and Video production. It’s HARRRRRRD but so worth it and I love it. I am working on some short videos and food photography for our restaurants The Tasting Room & Black Hog BBQ’s. I also want to do a video diary of the building of our 4th Hog in Middletown, Maryland. You can see my nerdy self on my instagram stories etc. I’ve been loving instagram these days and giving quick life updates so much fun and thank you to all who comment and follow. Be on the look out for some youtube content for my channel and for the restaurants. I am also starting some renovations here at the house beginning with my master en suite. Let’s say soaking tub, subway tiles, marble, self care….. yes! I can’t wait and Im taking you along with me.
Speaking of restaurants I created a #GALENTINES event for The Tasting Room February 13th All Day Long! It comes from a Parks and Rec episode years ago and has become a thing. We are giving away Gift Cards, Wine Flights (over 21 of course) collaborating with several local great businesses like http://www.arthairco.com http://www.jkwbeauty.com http://www.shopthemuse.com http://www.inarisalon.com http://www.transformedmedspamd.com just to name a few to make this the best first annual GALENTINES DAY EVER! #NOTICKETREQUIRED! So with that being said I enlisted some fantastic lovely ladies/friends for a promo photo shoot at TR this past Sunday. I have to say was a great success and I am so grateful to all who helped me. The pictures turned out great and I’ll have some behind the scenes footage up on youtube shortly. My channel yes I have one – will be getting tons better so subscribe and watch it all unfold and if nothing else have a good laugh. BLANK SLATE YOUTUBE
SNEAK PEAK BEHIND THE SCENES OF SUNDAY’S PHOTOSHOOT
I am also working on this neat idea to use real pictures of Barbies and Ken dolls around town hitting up BLACK HOG BBQ , TR and just coming around with me. I got the inspiration after staying at QUIRK HOTEL RICHMOND my all time favorite hotel when Im in Richmond. The lobby alone people is made up of my dreams. My room had a barbie photography. See this print and you will understand why plus I am a Barbie Girl and proud of it! I will try and find out the artist this is just a screen shot grabbed off google. (Until I get back there this spring to get my own again ) see my blog post on Quirk here. Isn’t this just the greatest? I adore it.
Next, after our trip out west to Telluride ( stay tuned that travel post up next week) – such great skiing and we stayed right in Mountain Village I absolutely loved it SKI.COM ASK FOR LISA IN TELLURIDE . Anyway after our trip our west and being forced to get this body really moving again I began really working out here at my fantastic home gym. Going the slow and steady pace focusing on my legs and core and a little cardio right now. Than in a month will amp it up. Also working my way back to good healthy eating where veggies take front and center roll. So while yes I am married to a chef I love to test new recipes for meals, juices smoothies, healthy lifestyle secrets etc. from fantastic sites I find online and below are some I’m loving right now that I want to share:

I am also working on a #RealReview post on the EMSCULPT TREATMENT FOR MUSCLE BUILDING AND FAT BURING WITH DR. SARAH MESS, MD. I give as always my real honest review with footage of procedure and what kind of results you can expect…. Spoiler alert – IT’S FLIPPING FANTASTIC! You can do it now and be ready for spring summer. So again stay tuned tons of stuff happing here at BLANK SLATE.
Off to school and tying to keep warm its a chilly 10 degrees this morning here in Maryland #winervortex.
