Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel for my Be My Valentine OOTD! Today, we are going to take a look at the shots that didn’t make the first cut but are worthy of being shared anyways for humor’s sake. Also, did anyone notice that my usual brick wall that doubles as a bathroom at a park wasn’t featured in this look? That’s right, because we used a brick wall at another park instead lol. It wasn’t a bathroom, unfortunately, but sometimes you just have to roll with the punches! Now, let’s get to it:
Hey, gang! Who’s ready to look at some bloopers?!
Johnny is always making me laugh! I actually kind of like these pictures. ❤
I LOOK GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My “oh shit” face haha
Epic failure of a hair shaking photo, which always turns out like this no matter how hard I try!
The beginning steps of what promises to be a thrilling dance routine…
Spoiler Alert: YIKES!
Just lumbering over to get my phone, which Johnny manages to capture so perfectly every time
That face you make when you find out the memory on your phone is full
As you can see, a new brick wall just brings out the best for your girl lol. When it’s warm out, you can always catch me at more fun locations taking pics. During the wintertime, however, is a totally different story because I share Johnny’s sentiments of “are we done yet?”. Therefore, the brick wall method is employed for maximum picture taking efficiency in three easy steps:
- Acquire brick wall
- Take pictures for five minutes
Lol – no muss, no fuss, just wall! Granted, it was a scorching forty degrees when these pictures were taken so it wasn’t all that bad but you get my point. The wall method is also great when you are working with a time crunch, which Johnny and I kind of were. This photo shoot was a win/win because the gorgeous shots you see above now exist AND I found a new brick wall to post up by. GREAT SUCCESS!
What is your favorite background for taking pictures? How does the weather affect your OOTD shoots? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Feeling Flowery OOTD! Today, we will be taking a look at the shots where I am looking… Less than my best lol. You’ve seen the limited amount of good from this shoot yesterday so let’s get onto the bad and the yikes so we can all share a laugh. It will be a HOOT, I promise:
Squinting because I can’t see the haters
Practicing my queen wave like the queen I am
Hey… You talkin’ to me?
Just out here looking like Donkey from Shrek
Lol, the heel on these boots was a pain in the booty to balance on!
Tripping on my own feet…
Just shaking it off like nothing happened and…
SHE STICKS THE LANDING!!!!!
I LOOK GREAT!!!!!!!!!
Lol, I don’t know if it was the heels or how cold it was when we took pictures but I couldn’t get my balance during this photo shoot to save my own life. Let’s just say it was a combination of both because every time that foot popped up, I was shaking like a leaf! There are so many pictures that Johnny took in this collection that are literally just me tripping up, shaking it off, and trying to recover with another terrible photo haha. They can’t all be winners!
Despite the cold and taking pictures in front of a bathroom (Which was fully intentional – you know I love a brick wall!), we still managed to get some salvageable shots in this five minute rapid fire session. Granted, the majority may have been bloopers – I only had six winners in yesterday’s post. But all is fair in love and OOTDs and and I’ll take what I can get. The good, the bad, and the “why would you post that?” alike!
Would you rather be really hot or really cold? Do you delete photos from your phone often? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Mad For Plaid OOTD! As I was uploading all of the images below, I couldn’t help but think of the Mean Girls quote about the Burn Book when one of the Plastics was like “We have pictures of everyone in the school, then we wrote comments”. Lol, I suppose my blooper posts are my own mini Burn Books in a way except I am fine with all of my own comments! Let’s see what I have to say for this batch of yikes shots:
Just looking like I got electrocuted
Making Fat Joe proud with my Lean Back
One of the best pictures ever taken of me
Creating my own wind in the hair didn’t work very well
Lumbering around an apartment complex near you!
Johnny always captures me from my good side 😉
Taking a moment for a lil shoulder shimmy
Looking faded on New Years before consuming a single drink. I am the party!!
These pictures were taken on mine and Johnny’s dilapidated balcony on New Years Eve. While I did have grand plans for a more elaborate backdrop, it was raining like a mother so we worked with what we had to achieve awesome shots as well as shots where it looked like I just took some shots! Because of the inclement weather, I retired to comfy clothes as soon as we were done with pictures. And, because tired, I think I fell asleep on New Years Eve around nine. What can I say, styling and profiling takes a lot out of me!
My only regret about this outfit is that literally no one but Johnny and my parents saw me in it. However, I was feeling myself for the rest of the entire world so it’s all good. In terms of blogging goals for 2023, I want to continue doing as many OOTD posts as I can so here’s to another year of fun and fashion on lifewithlilred! ❤
What did you do for New Years? Did you stay up until midnight? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Christmas OOTD entitled My Presence Is A Present lol. I had grand plans for lots of Christmas time looks and, unfortunately, that didn’t go accordingly to plan at all. We celebrated with Johnny’s family on Christmas Eve and when we woke up that day, the temperature in our apartment was barely sixty degrees. It. Was. Awful. The culprit was a very improperly sealed front door and the last thing I wanted to do was stand on the cold tile of the bathroom to do my hair and makeup! These bloopers will be the last of my holiday season OOTDs so keep it posted until next year for more! Haha check it out:
A nice shot of me and my dog’s butt
That face you make when you see your dog 🙂
Hiking up my britches for a Christmas extravaganza
Hey girl hey!!!!!!!!
I’ll nail the dramatic turn eventually
I LOOK GREAT!!!!!!!!!
I have no idea what is happening here
One final give me my phooooooooone of the year
Although none of these pics are worthy of being included in a Christmas card (Or are they?!), I had a celebration worthy of a Hallmark movie. My family Christmas was so incredibly perfect and it was a joy to be almost all together. We were missing my brother-in-law, Ramon, who had to work. Negative four degree temperatures didn’t slow down our celebration at all and we spent the day opening gifts, enjoying a delicious meal, and basking in the excellent company of each other. My best face might not have been forward in these bloopers but, rest assured, it was all smiles all day this Christmas. ❤
I hope that each and every one of you had an amazing holiday season. Stay tuned on lifewithlilred to ring in the new year for lots more fun, fashion, and bloopers too! ❤
How did you celebrate the holidays? Did everyone keep warm this past weekend? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Jolly AF OOTD! Johnny and I had the best date day while I was sporting this look and it doesn’t get more holly or jolly than that. And, of course, it’s jolly AF to poke some good old fashioned fun at myself too so let’s get to the yikes shots that definitely aren’t Christmas card worthy:
Don’t mind me just looking straight up terrifying 😉
I LOOK GREAT!!!!!!!!!!
Tried to do a dramatic turn, which clearly didn’t work out
Took a little stumble…
And she’s okay!!!
Give. Me. My. PHOOOOONE. Yikes, dude.
My face when I tell Johnny “just a few more” pictures
Surprisingly, this picture was taken before I had a drink at the bar!
OOTDs are, honestly, my time to pretend like I’m on America’s Next Top Model and as you can see from the pictures above, I am well on my way lol. These posts have always been one of my favorite things to create for lifewithlilred because it’s purely fun for me. I just love the process of it. Styling an outfit, picking out a location, and trying to get perfect pictures is a fashion challenge that I am always up for. And, although going through the million pictures that Johnny takes each shoot can be a time consuming chore, the hunt for the best bloopers turns it into a much more enjoyable feat!
One of my goals for these past few months was doing a lot more OOTD posts and, unfortunately, that didn’t go as planned due to unforeseen circumstances. However, the craziness has slowed down significantly in Lil Red’s world and I am excited to get back on the horse for more fashion, shoots, and date days with my blog husband! And, of course, laughing at all of the shots that make me glad that I haven’t fully quit my day job. 😀
Stay tuned on lifewithlilred for all of the Jolly AF Christmas festivities. Even those dead inside still know how to get down with the holiday spirit!
What is your favorite thing to blog about? Do you delete “bad” shots or post them anyway? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my It’s Not Just A Phase OOTD!! This is one of my favorite looks I have done on lifewithlilred in 2022 and I think the pictures that were non bloopers rule. However, it wouldn’t be an OOTD on my page without the blooper reel of pics that most definitely didn’t make the cut let alone be seen by the entire world. OR SHOULD THEY?! I think so! Check out these yikes shots that truly capture the goofball essence of everyone’s favorite Lil Red blogger:
This way to the gun show!!
I LOOK GREAT!!!!!!
Miss Thing has got an attitude
Sporting the demon chic look and clearly about to open a can of whoop ass
*About to shake hands with someone* AYYY PSYCH!!
This bird of paradise is spreading her wings and flying
Hey uhhhh do you have a cigarette?
Trying to stand on my toes and epic failing
Shout out to the one piece of hair that always sticks out no matter what *eye roll*
Hoisting myself up for more fun on lifewithlilred. Let’s go!
When it comes to taking pictures, give me a brick wall and I will work the ever living hell out of it. That is all I wanted for this shoot and, honestly, the location is a blooper in and of itself. The brick wall I chose was the bathroom building of a local park lol. But, hey, you work with what you’ve got and it was a mighty nice brick wall! This was a brain blast when we were about to head out to downtown Cuyahoga Falls for its excellent brick building selection and what we ended up with just makes me like these shots even more. You are never too old to be an emo kid OR laugh about bathroom related humor. 😀
This shoot was such a hoot and it really did take me back to my days of yore when my badass little self loved to post up by a brick wall and have a cigarette. Obviously, I thought I was the coolest. Judging by my popularity in high school, clearly, I was not lol. Be that as it may, these pictures are the coolest to me, bloopers and all and I hope that you enjoyed this photo series as much as I did! ❤
What was your high school self like? What is your most cringe worthy high school memory? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hello everyone and welcome to the third and final blooper reel from my Thanksgiving OOTDs! Today, we’ll be looking at the craziness from my Guest Star OOTD and it is one of my favorite photo series that has been created for lifewithlilred. The outfit was, of course, on point but it was the best because my darling niece, Valerie, wanted in on the photography fun too! Val makes me proud every day but this just hit different – especially considering that there was a point when she refused to have her picture taken. Look at her now, stealing the show!
Just TT being and looking crazy
Lol, Val holding on for dear life
This picture cracks me up!!
She’s coming in hot and…..
Valerie is my lil bestie and everything is infinitely more fun (And tiring!) when she’s around. Every day that I get to spend with her is special and whenever I’m feeling down, all I need to do is think of the funny things that she says and does and it never fails to make me smile! She is my partner in crime for Taco Bell and Mexican food dates, story hours, slumber parties, and now OOTDs! I truly think we have a future influencer on our hands and that time might be coming sooner than later – she puts her own outfits together every day! #proudestTTever
Every moment from mine and Johnny’s three day Thanksgiving extravaganza was awesome but having Val be a Guest Star was one of my favorite parts. Being an aunt and uncle is such an exciting adventure for us and I cannot wait to celebrate Christmas with our sweet nieces and nephew. Only a few more weeks!! ❤
What is one of your cherished holiday memories? What puts you in the holiday spirit? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Cardi Party OOTD! With three Thanksgivings in a row, Johnny and I were exhausted for basically the entire week afterwards. It was well worth it, though, because we had an amazing time with our families! Thanksgiving was the perfect occasion to get back into fashion forward posts on lifewithlilred and I was ecstatic because I missed it oh so very much. Of course, there are sure to be some unflattering pictures among the hundreds that Johnny takes and I took it upon myself to share them with all of you. Check out the bloopers from my Cardi Party look:
I LOOK GREAT!!!!
Hoisting myself up from this handy little bench that Johnny and his dad made
Startled by some type of bird activity going on
Something STANK and I’m pretty sure it’s this picture
The classic wife look of mild amusement and disbelief every time your husband says something uncouth
Starting to peter out halfway through Thanksgiving round two
Looking like a straight up donkey after Johnny said something funny
High five very nice!!
Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful, amiright?! Lol but seriously… A while back ago I saw this post on Facebook about a mom who will happily take pictures when her kids hold up a camera no matter what she looks like. Rather than refuse to get her picture taken, she’ll smile. And, instead of vetoing the more than likely unflattering picture upon seeing it she would say something like “I look awesome” or “I love my smile”. The blooper reels from my OOTD posts kind of follow that same concept as well as poking some good old fashioned fun at myself and it is a segment on my page that I am really proud of.
My sister claims that I take way too many pictures (As does Johnny as you can see!) but I just can’t help myself. No matter if it’s a “good” or “bad” picture, it’s important to me to have all of those special moments to look back on later and smile. Showcasing these yikes OOTD shots is something that I would have never done during earlier lifewithlilred times. However, I think displaying these shots for the world to see shows my growth as a person and I hope it encourages others to do the same. Is it really a “bad” shot if it makes someone laugh or feel comfortable with any of their perceived flaws? I think not! 😀
Keep it posted tomorrow for bloopers from my third and final Thanksgiving OOTD and then it is onto more fun here on lifewithlilred. See you then!
Are you a constant photo taker at family events? How many pictures do you have on your phone? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Comfy Cozy Thxgiving OOTD! For three Thanksgivings, I served three separate looks and now it’s time to check out the pics that most definitely didn’t make the first cut. This post is part bloopers and part story time because somehow while Johnny was snapping pics, something reminded me of one of the lamest things my bestie and I did in high school and I had to tell him all about it. Naturally, I had no idea he was taking my pictures throughout this lengthy tale but now I get to share them with all of you! Check it out:
I LOOK GREAT!!!!
Just a lil pre-Thanksgiving nap standing up
Making haste to a less sunny location – good thing I wore my running shoes!
STORY TIME… And realizing it was all captured by my loving husband lol
I can not remember for the life of me what brought upon this manifesto of a high school aged bestie and I but apparently I really needed to tell Johnny about it for the fifth time. I’m sure all of you knew a girl in high school who stuffed her bra with tissue or toilet paper but have you ever heard of anyone who used the same method for their butt? We did! In high school, there was this girl who stuffed her butt and it was not just a rumor – there was evidence to back it up. From tissue sticking out of her pants to her butt deflating after each class period, she was not fooling anyone and literally the whole school knew about it.
For shits and gigs, my best friend and I would pay homage to this person by stuffing our butts Every. Single. Time. we hung out. Needless to say, we went through a ton of toilet paper at our parents’ houses during our high school years. Was this a necessary thing to do? Absolutely not. Was it hilarious to us? ABSOLUTELY. We were like women possessed and our hangouts just didn’t feel right without it. It was, honestly, the dumbest thing but it still cracks me up to this day. In fact, if you look at the fourth image down, I’m pretty sure I’m about to say “butt” lol. Hey, what’s being in high school without doing the stupidest stuff ever?! Good times.
Am I particularly proud of this story? I mean… kind of lol I guess we just had to match the utter ridiculousness of the situation with some ridiculousness of our own. And now we can all share a laugh on the blogosphere fourteen years later! 😀
What is one of the dumbest things you did in high school? How about one of the dumbest things you did as an adult? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hello!! Johnny and I have had our sweet bunny babies, Penelope and Mel, for two weeks now but it feels like we have had them for forever. They are the most wonderful pets and it is an honor and a privilege to be their parents! The most pleasant surprise of this experience is, easily, Johnny’s transformation into a full on bunny dad. I knew from the jump how much I was going to love them but it is so adorable to see how equally obsessed my husband is with them too:
^^^ Proud papa!
When we brought our mother and son duo home, it was safe to say that Johnny didn’t seem particularly thrilled about it. However, that changed drastically the following day! When I returned home in the evening, Johnny couldn’t wait to tell me about all of the fun him and the bunnies had together. They spent hours on end snuggling and playing and Johnny even treated them to a banjo concert lol. It was also VERY NICE to hear every wife’s favorite words of “you were right”!!
Johnny, Penelope, and Mel have been best buddies ever since and it’s so hilarious to me. The whole situation is such a classic turn around from “I don’t want a pet” to constantly snapping pictures of them and oohing and ahhing over every single thing the bunnies do. Johnny is always calling Mel his “special boy” and Penelope his “favorite girl” and it melts my heart every time. 🙂
Now that we are the proud parents to our furry little children, our evenings our spent watching them explore our apartment. Johnny actually went to Menard’s and got a bunch of baby proofing stuff so Mel and Penelope can safely go on their adventures. I’m sure everyone at the store thought he was preparing for a new baby so I would have loved to see what they had to say if Johnny told them it was for his bunnies lol. He is truly the best bunny dad ever! ❤
Becoming pet owners has been so exciting and every day with our precious babies brings me so much joy. Having Johnny so clearly feel the same sentiments is the cherry on top!
Has anyone else had a similar experience to Johnny over a new pet? What are some of the nicknames you have for your pets? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
