How Was Your Day

Image
My original blog, howwasyourday.tumblr.com, was started when I was living in San Francisco; I had recently ended a position in Marketing and was consulting at Monster.com.

While chatting with my mom over the phone she asked me what I'd worn to work.

I tried to describe my outfit, but she said "just email me a picture" I did her one better and posted the photo online in my very first Tip-to-toe blog post.


Every evening since I was a child, my mom would ask us "How Was Your Day?" and I'd like to share that with you.

As often as I can I'll post my top five moments of the day or week in a How Was Your Day post; and I want to hear from you so I hope you will leave comments and let me know...How Was Your Day?


How Was Your Day?

1. Got an unexpected reimbursement check...Yay!

2. Took the check to the bank and decided to grab food...got rammed by a car in the parking lot...Boo!


3. Survived with only minor injuries to myself and my car...Yay-dot-com (and thanks Hond…

Doggie Dish: Doggie Swim Day

Image
The Washington, DC Department of Parks and Recreation held it's 2nd annual Doggie Swim Day at two pools in NW this past Saturday.
Check out my westie Bradley enjoying the neighborhood fun at Upshur Pool in Petworth.




Also happening in Petworth is the construction of the first dog park in Ward 4 right next door to the Upshur pool; the dog park is set to open October 2010.

Becoming a Social Media Rockstar

Top Fives Tips
1. DO ONE THING AND DO IT WELL!

Define your style, whether you're the queen of the pencil skirt or have a wardrobe entirely from Forever21...OWN IT!

2. LET THE FUR FLY!

Grab a pooch- they don't take direction well, but they look adorable in the background of your photos; popular bloggers with doggies include Julia Allison who owns a Shih Tzu and the glamourai who owns a Papillon.

3. USE YOUR LBD AND YOUR LBB

Throw on that little black dress and flip through your little black book because I want you to date (or at least wake up next to) a photographer- you need someone to take your picture every morning ; )

4. GET GEEKY!

Get a digital camera (you may need a FlipCam or other recording device later), buy a smartphone (you don't have to break the bank I have a Samsung Finesse by MetroPCS and my bill is a flat $55/mo.); create pages on  Twitter and Facebook for your blog and restrict posts to topics related to your blog.

5. MAKE A PASTIME A FULL-TIME
