fight night


my sister got engaged the night Mayweather fought Canelo!

 

a show about nothing: SEINFELD

 the most important thing for me to remember is that "LIFE GOES ON"!

 
and being in my thirties thus far has been AMAZING in everyway.
 
 
ninamdot NOTHING'S:
 
1. I already erased two number one's that were typed.
a. the first one was about a grammatical error that I thought could come off as funny -and-
b. the second one was about a certain "somebody" that I truly miss but didn't wanna get... mushy.  The truth is I have "let go" of the person, but not our bond. SEE.
 
2. Stating the obvious has never been necessary for me. I love some unspoken rules that are without question, followed. And quite frankly: it annoys the hell out of me!
 
3. Three months is about how far I'm behind in posting my recent work. 
 
4. Do you ever talk to yourself while your driving? I DO!
 
5. Right before I took thee above two shots of myself... I was crying! HARD! BOO WOO tears. I think that is so funny now! ha ha ha

family shots


 
 
 
two of my favorite shots from a family shoot I did this summer.


ALMOST 30

PSA: ninamdot turns 30 (if you followed me on intagram: @ninamdot DUHHH you would know)  Here's a few pictures of half my outfit for the big party.  Excited could never describe my feelings right now. I mean about the outcome of my shirt and this new phase of life.
As you can see, I went to see a tailor today. AWE-SOME & Sweet as pie would be the adjectives to describe that woman.
I'm blessed.
Can't wait to share the finished product!!!

JAZZ FEST NEWS

ninamdot loves snapping pictures of strangers. Well... That's my friend Dominique below in the white dress and some people I follow on Instagram!







OH THE PLACES YOU CAN FIND ME!

Does this blue building look familiar to any of my fellow Cincinnatians?
Its sits right on the corner of Race and 12th St. catty corner to Washington Park.
I was cruising through downtown this weekend and couldn't help but to notice how everything had changed so much right there on that block... Expect this building. I found it very interesting. I'm not sure how long this place has been here but the building and the business seems "untouchable".
I wanted to take pictures just in case.
 





 

Reality Tuesday (It's a coffee shop in Park Hills, KY)

oh so Nina, you do product placement now?!

HA! No. Not really. I do have a bone to pick with Gap though. 
 I love "heaven" scent but no matter how much I put on it literally disappears. Maybe because its not a perfume... Either way I want my $19.99 back!

ninamdot says, don't waste your money ; )
I really should have wiped the top off before I took this picture, huh?!
Practice makes perfect...
