I also just received my second order of these super fun lip balms (complete with logo!) from the amazing Leigh at LL2B! Leigh is so awesome to work with and these little tubes of joy have become a new must have item in my purse:) Great for marketing and chapped lips! What more could a girl ask for:) Make sure you hop on over to Leigh’s site or her Etsy shop!!

Last weekend, I made my way back up to Maryland to join the rest of the fabulous gals that make up the blonde creative (Jaime Windon, Mk McKenna, & Quinn Peyser) to help photograph Honfest 2009! What is Honfest, you ask? HonFest is a local tradition in Baltimore. A Bawlmer (Baltimore for those of you that do not live in Maryland) term of endearment, Hon, short for Honey, embodies the warmth and affection bestowed upon our neighbors and visitors alike by historic working-women of Baltimore. HonFest is an annual celebration in honor of these women. The festival was created by Denise Whiting, owner of Cafe Hon and is definitely a highly anticipated event in the Hampden neighborhood in Bawlmer. People came from all over to attend this event, myself included! Here are a few of the images I was able to capture. Most of these are from the first day during the Lil Miss Hon and the Miss Honettes competitions!
