30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 30

In motion

Today is the last day of My 30 Day Photo Challenge. It was fun but it was also more work than I expected. Time for a much-deserved break from blogging. LOL!

Comment and let Me know what you thought of the challenge. Which photo(s) is/are your favorite?

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 28

Something old

My great-aunt left me this antique turquoise and silver ring. I was in grade school when she passed away and My fingers are freakishly small - I wear My great-grandfather's baby ring on the smallest finger of My right hand - so I was never able to wear it. It sat ignored in My jewelry box for over a decade. Then, last fall, I decided to try it on just for laughs. Imagine My surprise when I discovered it fits now.

Kiriel's birthstone is turquoise
Do you own any family heirlooms or other old things with special memories attached to them? Is there an old building in your city with architecture you admire? Comment and describe it to Me.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 27

Vacation souvenir

I got this carved cowrie shell in Mazatlan, Mexico. My family and I took a vacation there when I was a child. It was the first time I ever swam in the ocean.

Do you have any special vacation souvenirs? What do you have and where did it come from? What special memories does it hold for you?

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 25

Makes me smile

I got presents in the mail. Woo hoo! Gifts always make Me smile.

I know you want the privilege of making Me smile too. Well, I've made it easy for you to send Me a gift from any of My wishlists. Know what else makes Me smile? Money. Lots of it. Send Me a tribute. Just remember, size does matter.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 23

From a distance

This is a Google satellite view of the lake at My local park. 
I am Kiriel's nerdy sense of humor

Do you think a photo taken from orbit qualifies as enough distance?

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 22

Favorite food

My all-time favorite food is Godiva dark chocolate truffles, but all dark chocolate is divine.

As My devoted minion, it's your job to keep Me supplied with chocolate and other goodies. Get out that wallet and start tributing. Chop, chop!

My eyes are My best feature. They're so hypnotic and mesmerizing, you could get lost forever.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 20

I don't get to the pool nearly as often as I'd like. As you can tell by how pale I am in mid-July. I blame My Celtic ancestors for how easily I burn.

Kiriel at the pool

I expect you to facilitate My poolside lounging. So get tributing, minions. Better yet, adopt My bills so I even more time to work on My tan.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 18

My shoes

Remember the picture of those purple sandals I posted for the "something new" photo earlier in this challenge? These are the sandals they've replaced.

I love these shoes but, after 5+ years, they're looking pretty worn. It's time to retire them. Heads up, shoe can own a piece of Miss K. memorabilia. Imagine stroking the suede insoles and strappy uppers, imbued with the scent of My divine sweat while you pay worship to your Goddess. Contact Me to find out how these shoes can be yours.

What I ate

Today's post is a bit later than usual because I'm taking a photo of My lunch. My roomie made nachos. Yum!

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 16


Sitting in My flower PJs, drinking coffee from My flower mug.

Kiriel is not a morning person
It's waaaay too early for selfies. What was I thinking?

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 15

Close up

My BFF and I went down to the pool at her apartment complex. On the way back to her place, I found a polyphemus moth resting on the grass in front of the sidewalk leading from the pool to the office. Since it was full daylight, the moth was very sluggish. I was able to get close enough to take a picture. (My hand is next to the moth to provide color contrast and for scale; I'm not actually touching it.)

Isn't it gorgeous?

Something cold

A hot July day calls for chocolate ice cream. Of course, that can be said for almost any day.

Drove up to the city with some friends this past weekend and snapped this on the way.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 12


This is My dog. He's 50% Pembroke Welsh Corgi, 50% Australian cattle dog and 100% derp. He thinks it's his job to flop in as many places as possible. One of his favorite spots is My lap (because scritches and belly rubs are awesome, amirite?). He is the best dog ever.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 10

Something new

Check out My new purple sandals!

One of My pay piggies bought these for Me. A girl can never have too many shoes. Have you bought something from My wishlist? Why not? Buy Me a new pair of shoes or boots and I'll make a special blog post just for you.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 9


I got a Nexus 7 tablet a couple of months ago. I love it!

Tablet and cover paid for by one of My loyal subjects. Have you spoiled your Goddess today? Get out that wallet and make yourself useful, loser. Send a gift from one of My wishlists. Better yet, just hand over your cash by clicking one of My tribute buttons. I also accept Amazon gift cards and Greendot MoneyPaks. Use My contact form to send codes.

Someone I love

This is My best friend, S. She's the sister of My heart and I love her to pieces.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 7

In my bag

I like to play with makeup. Contribute to My beauty regimen by sending Me gifts of lipstick, nail polish, and other cosmetics or buy Me a book about makeup techniques.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 6


Right now, I bet you're imagining My long nails scraping across your skin. Aren't you, piggy? Don't you wish you could feel them digging into your soft flesh or hear them tap, tap, tapping on the arm of My chair as you kneel before Me? Don't make Me laugh, you'll never get that lucky. But there are other ways to please Me.

Want the privilege of picking the color of My next manicure? Of course you do. Buy Me some nail polish from My wishlist and I'll make a special blog post just for you.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 5


This is just one of My bookshelves. I have four. All of them are stacked two-deep.

I like big books and I cannot lie.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 4

Favorite color

 Purple is My favorite color because it's the most regal. I prefer deeper hues (violet, royal purple, amethyst) but any shade of purple will do.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 3


Well, one wispy little cloud. It's kind of hard to make out, but it's right below the red arrow.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 2

What I wore

I work from home, so I usually get to wear whatever I feel like, which is mostly jeans or sweats. Today, however, I have a business meeting to attend. Since I know the air conditioner will be blasting, this is what I'm planning to wear.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 1

Self portrait

Doing My best impression of Cindy Lou Who in an attempt to keep My hair out of My face. I seriously need to get it done. My bangs are out of control. Time to chop them off again.

Who's the lucky loser who gets to pay for My salon visit? Get over to My tribute page and make a contribution. Maybe, if you grovel extra hard, I'll send you a clipping to worship.
