Jacksonville Senior Photographer // Scarlett Lillian Seniors: I've got new shoes on.
BlogMenu

Jan 24, 2008

I've got new shoes on.



Ok, I don't literally have new shoes on....

.....Though my latest favorite new-ish shoes are these cute black and silver sparkly ones from Target. I adore them and even though they go best with little black dresses, I still wear them to places as casual as the grocery store to keep a little sparkle in my step. Anyways, I'm digressing.

My new favorite song is "New Shoes" by Paolo Nutini. I think it's been out for a while, but randomly I heard it the other day and instantly downloaded it. Now, I listen to it when I'm running, I listen to it when I'm working, I listen to it when I'm getting ready and I've even been guilty of annoying my neighbors on the other side of the wall in my condo by cranking up my iTunes just so I can dance around my living room to the song.

There is something about the analogy of new shoes that is so symbolic in my life right now. I may not literally have new shoes on, but since my breakthrough moment on Monday, God has blessed me sooooo much this week beyond description with what feels like 40,000 new shoes and that joy that usually comes from retail therapy. Except this time, my credit card didn't take a hurting from any retail therapy, and instead my heart is simply full and loving life all over again.

Anyways, just had to the share the video. And wow, turns out the singer is very yummy to look at too!





And speaking of shoes, let's put on our running shoes! Below is the Nike challenge I've started and I would love to race you! The first person to run 50 miles will get a $200 gift certificate to Amazon.com!



And according to how many people sign up, the losers have to contribute to the pot. So the more people that join, the less you will have to contribute, so invite your friends too! And if you don't want to contribute, please don't sign up. This is for serious runners only who aren't sore losers.

So if you are a photographer, just think, $200 could go toward that amazing new lens you want on Amazon (that's where I buy all my camera gear!). Or if you are a bride, it could go toward your own wedding shoes. Or if you are a friend and random blog reader, buy yourself a bunch of new books or DVDs with the winnings! But before you can spoil yourself, you must first take care of yourself and get out there running!

I look forward to kicking all of your butts!! wink wink

In order to give people a chance to sign up and go get their Nike/iPod goods this weekend, the race will start Monday, January 28. But you can also join the race at anytime during it, so it's never too late to catch up. You can click on the thing-a-ma-jig below to sign up, or if you have problems signing up, email me your email address and I can invite you personally to it!



I'm also going to post the Nike thing-a-ma-jig at the top of my blog for when this entry gets pushed to the arvhives. And totally feel free to grab the HTML code from the Nike site to embed the race on your own blog! This is going to be fun!

So, "New Shoes" is obviously my new Power Song on the Nike/iPod dealio. Tell me, what is YOUR power song?

Them are some sassy shoes!

Wish I ran, I could use $200 to amazon! But yeah, not so much. My "power songs" are all my soundtrack to reading and writing. I guess my exercise is mostly mental... sigh.

I've been eyeing those shoes as well, but am just not sure what I would wear them with! That is a beautiful photo of them though, so great!

I love running to this song I just recently found called "Corre" by BeBe. I have no idea what she is saying other than "Run". It's a cool groove and certainly gets me to RUN RUN RUN faster! I also like "La Coqueta" by the same band. Does anyone know spanish to tell me what the heck I am running to (lol)?!

So wish I could do this race, don't have the chippy thing though.

You so have to keep us all updated on your race. How do you know how other runners are doing?

Rachel- Cool songs! I've have to check them out.

Anonymous- Through the Nike/iPod deal, your Nike shoe sensor wirelessly tells your iPod how many miles you ran, and then you plug your iPod into the computer and it sends the data to your Nike account online which will then send it to the Challenge you are participating in to update your records against the other runners. Cool huh? But first you have to buy Nike Shoes, the sensor and an iPod nano for it to all work. Go nikeplus.nike.com for more info.

Jackie- Bummer about the nano! You would think they would make it work with the iPhone somehow.

Noelle- Thanks! It was fun to play with these shoes. They glitter, so I thought of trying to recreate a disco ball. So I put them on my couch, turn my living room lights off, and put two flashlights pointing at them to get the reflection. And oila, with my 50mm 1.2, I snapped it!

Megan- You should get them! You just never know what you can find to wear them with. They are fun to just put with a pair of jeans and a white tank top. The shoes are all you need to make it a great outfit!

Ariana- Cool songs!

Darice- Yeah I want to hear that song! Do you have an iPod nano? If so, you can easily get the sensor and Nike shoes at like Dick's sporting store or probably any sport's shoe store. You should totally join us!

Hi Scarlett!

Just wanted to say that I really enjoy reading your blog. You are an extremely talented photographer.

I found your posts about running and the Nike+ challenge to be really inspiring. Definitely gave me that extra push to get out there and run. My power song is definitely Toby Mac, "Made to Love". Thank you so much!

Katy- That's a great song! Glad I could help give you the motivation to run! You should join the challenge or another challenge.

So yeah, while I was gone, Biscuitman totally jumped ahead outdoing all of us before I could even run the first mile. So to those who are in this challenge, I'm planning on launching another new challenge after Biscuitman wins this in the next day or so. Stay tuned! I guess this was a nice "trial run". Ha!

Blogger Scarlett Lillian said...

Ok, Biscuitman won the challenge and kicked all our butts. So if you participated in this challenge, go to your Nike Challenge page to look for his email address that he will post soon, and then please send him a $25 gift certificate from amazon.com. Even if you didn't get a chance to run, like I barely did, if you signed up, you are still responsible for giving the prize to him. Thanks everyone! I'll be posting a new challenge soon since a lot of us barely got a chance to participate in this one!
