What an awesome day! :)

Starting with facial at LUMINIQUE. I have to tell you it was great!! I got a coupon from BLOOMSPOT, and thought for sure they would try to sell me all their products and try to get me to try this and that.. and guess what!! they were so sweet, so nice! The place is like so calming and relaxing it’s like ur not even in NY. 🙂 So that was lovely start to my morning… (afternoon really)

Had an amazing bridal shower party at JEZEBEL and when it was over i just had the best time shooting at night for the 1st time with the lovely couple!! More pictures will be up soon on my FB PAGE!

Remember: Dont be afraid! Try something new!



Luminique Spa

I will try to start posting a bit earlier then 1am 🙂


Silly Monkey Business

For those of you who live in Brooklyn, or for those of you who drive by Eastern Parkway often i bet you never notices a monkey in a window!

Id like to give a shout out to Rendo for pointing this out to me a couple of months back because every time i pass this place i get a much-needed big smile and sometimes even a laugh!

So what,where,when,who?

What: A monkey in a window. The owner dresses up/ positions his monkey up daily (sometimes i see he gets lazy or is on vacation when the monkey isn’t being taken care of) with something new, or adds some sort of prop. I have seen he monkey with tweety on his head, upside down, in an old grama gown etc.. its pretty fun to watch his creativity.

Where: 2nd floor in Richard Meier green glass tower on Eastern Parkway! Right across the street from the Brooklyn Library/ Grand army plaza. (Safety tip: drive on the service lane so u can pull over and check it out, don’t be smart and try to take a picture as u drive on the main road)

When: Every day (unless he’s on vacation or something)

Who: I’m planning on finding out.. I will deff. update you when i meet him  ( maybe its a her!)

All i can say is GET A MONKEY! Dont take life way too seriously! Express yourself and make people laugh! It’s so worth it!!

Oh and of course I had to stop at Fox’s while waiting for my dad in a meeting i wasn’t exactly going to eat out myself so i went shopping instead. This dress was $44 and like perfect! And my daily Starbucks trip always consists of a passion hot tea or green machine naked blended! Helps me get through all the editing!


P.S if you snap a picture next time you pass by be sure to email it to me so i can make have a follow-up on the monkeys wardrobe 🙂 Thank You! chanablumesphoto@gmail.com

Oh… and be sure to share this so all your Brooklyn friends can enjoy this !

And people!! i made ONE smile!! yaya me! (i want to make anther but i will keep the yellow circles for my texts)

First Blog Post ever, SweetUp inspired

Here goes something.. (I hope 🙂 ) Today i went to SweetUp event “A shmoozefest for bloggers and brands” i really enjoyed myself! Thank you to all the organizers and panelists for inspiring me to start a blog 🙂 I hope you all enjoy! B4 going to Monsey for a twins upshenish/bday party I HAD TO stop off at BCBG down the block from the event to see what steals i could find.. and what do u know i found the perfect pair of sunnies 🙂 so yaya for me! Its something about BCBG and I… what can i say we have a great relationship 🙂 When i was checking out i saw the wall display behind the cashier and thought of how brilliant it was and how easy it would be to replicate it on a smaller scale to fit into your home. So ill let the pictures talk for themselves! (and if anyone does try to make something like this don’t be shy.. email me and id love to have a “follow up” haha! im thinking way to fancy here.. but u never know who might actually listen to my crazy ideas.)  I have no idea what the next post will be about but people.. this wont be my ‘photography’ blog because you can all visit my FB PAGE and WEBSITE to see that stuff.. this is more fun 🙂 this will be the place i let my iphone camera come to life and share with you little  experiences/tips/inspiration 🙂


Have a trip to the city tomorrow thinking about mayb doing a blog post with some children inspired outfits! 🙂 and hopefully anther shopping deal! 🙂
