Spring is in the Air!

March 26 2015

At last the dreaded winter is gone! Spring is finally in the air and I must say that the weather has been quite nice thus far. It is finally time to break out our shorts and tank tops, see ya next year winter coat! It is also super nice to be in Louisiana for Spring! The weather is cool/warm with usually nice breezes to keep me from sweating. Also, crawfish season is here!! I am very excited about this because I could eat so much crawfish I may turn into one someday! Overall, spring just makes me happy! We have Easter to spend time with family and just typical nice weather before the summer heat takes over. Spending time in the city during spring is one of my favorite things to do; it just seems to be more vibrant with all of the colorful flowers blooming and people rejoicing that the cold days are gone! The only downfall about Spring is that it seems we usually get a good bit of rain. "April showers brings May flowers" seems to hit hard in Louisiana; but there are still plenty of sunshine filled days to enjoy, so I can't complain. Anyway, I can't wait for spring break and spending as much time outside as possible! ... | Read More

St. Patrick's Day

March 12 2015

I feel like St. Patrick's Day is the black sheep of all the holidays. Everyone seems to either forget about it or chooses not to wear green. I usually wear green because I do not like to get pinched by random people! Sometimes I feel like people intentionally don't wear green to get attention, but maybe they just forget! If you aren't 21, St. Patrick's Day seems like it doesn't matter as much, because most people use it as an excuse to get drunk. Here at Painting With a Twist, we don't mind the drinking because it's just like any other day. I think it's a fun holiday to give you an excuse to be late to work, or enjoy a fun night out with friends. I'm not sure why people don't talk about St. Patrick's Day as much, because honestly it's a great holiday! You get to wear green, which can be flattering on most skin tones, you can drink on a weekday without being judged, plus you can watch all the cool parades in Ireland! I think more people should appreciate St. Patrick's day because it is a holiday for a reason! The only thing that could make it better is if bars gave out free drinks, but I guess that's being too hopeful! Everyone have a fun St. Patrick's day and drink responsibly! ... | Read More

March 5 2015

Sometimes I feel like life is going by way too fast. February felt faster than the blink of an eye! I feel like were we just waiting for the groundhog to see his shadow and its already the first week of March. But then again, I feel like I was just ringing in the New Year with my friends. It seems like time is moving too fast, but sometimes I look forward to things that make it move faster. Maybe we should focus more on the present than trying to plan our far off future. I know I am guilty of trying to make plans for things too far in advance; I just like to know what my future holds. Unfortunately, I think this contributes to things going by so fast. I know that our life isn't permanent, and we should enjoy it while we can, but there are so many things to do that I feel I hardly have time to stop and smell the roses. Between school, work and other obligations, my free time is very limited (and it is sometimes spent catching up on sleep). I think a resolution I should have made is to say no every now and then so I can do something spontaneous! Life is too short to not live it to the fullest, and at the rate it's going, I'll be a little old lady before I know it! So next time you have to chance to do something fun, do it! Don't turn down something exciting to start a new season of a show on Netflix. Netflix will always be here, but fun adventures may not. ... | Read More

Cold and Bothered

February 25 2015

Usually I am excited when the leaves and temperature start to fall; winter and fall are a time that you can walk outside and not instantly sweat, which I truly am thankful for. Though, by the time the end of February comes around I am over the constant cold, especially in Louisiana. My allergies cannot determine if it is spring or winter because the weather keeps changing! It was a beautiful sunny 70 degrees day on Sunday, but by Tuesday it was 40 degrees and raining. I am ready for the slight heat. Obviously I am not yet prepared to experience the sweltering heat that comes in summer, but I would enjoy some constant 70 degree weather. The worst is this week when it is not only super chilly, it is pouring rain on my parade! Is it too much to ask Mother Nature to let me have either rain or cold? At the same time these two create a wave of laziness on me. My body instantly wants to go back to bed in this weather, and that unfortunately is not possible. So I guess I'm just kinda mad that the groundhog saw his shadow again this year... Maybe our warm weather will come early, because I sure don't want to deal with this cold any longer!... | Read More

Mardi Gras Time!

February 11 2015

Mardi Gras is definitely a party time, and it could be a good time to evaluate your life and see if you maybe party too much haha! I especially love hitting up all of the parades. We have some pretty good ones here in Slidell, but in my opinion the best are in New Orleans. This year I am going to Muses for the first time, and I'm hoping to catch a bedazzled heel! I also am going to Endymion, which is my favorite! I just love the atmosphere! It is family-ish so that I feel safe, but my friends and I still have a good time! There is just something about Mardi Gras that makes it so special and fun. When you think about it, some things about Mardi Gras aren't so glamorous. The constant smell of beer and cigarettes, getting whacked in the face with a pair of beads, then having some crazy lady trying to steal those beads from you, plus add either sweltering heat or freezing rain (I feel like we never have an in between) your fun day can be slightly ruined. Even though there are a few downsides to Mardi Gras, nothing can replace the fun times we share with friends and family. Watching all of the beautiful floats drive by with marching bands playing our favorite tunes, it is a magical time that I will never take for granted. Laissez les bons temps rouler!... | Read More

Looking for Love

February 5 2015

It seems like January flew by, and February doesn't seem to be slowing down any time soon. In not even two weeks, Valentine's Day will be here! I have always enjoyed Valentine's Day. Single or in a relationship, it is a day that we can show our love for those who mean the most to us. Also, who doesn't love all the heart shaped candy? Not going to lie, Valentine's Day is kinda better with a significant other to buy little treats for and possibly dinner or a fun date. There are always those people who are Valentine's Day haters. You have to admire all the time they put into thinking of ways to insult people in happy relationships, or even people who just want to treat themselves to some candy and a stuffed animal. I find it funny reading what all these people have to say about making Valentine's Day mean something more than just candy, but let's face it. candy is too good to pass up! Here at PWAT Slidell, we always have a fun painting on Valentine's Day. You can come with your significant other, or even if you're single and ready to mingle! We would love to have people here spreading the love with us! Don't worry about being single, because there is always someone who loves you: family, a pet, or even a friend! You're never truly alone.... | Read More

Exiting Your Comfort Zone

January 28 2015

Every time we have a class, there is at least one person who claims they have never painted before. This is perfectly fine, because we help everyone the whole class time so that your painting will come out how you want it to. Though, the one, maybe two people who say they never have painted may be nervous about painting with us; especially if other people in the room are self-proclaimed pros. Everyone has doubts about new things, but painting should not be something that stresses people out. True, some more difficult paintings make us want to rip our hair out, but usually it is very relaxing to paint. It can truly be the best time of your life when you are here painting with your friends, but it is all about stepping out of your comfort zone. We would never discover new things if we didn't step out of our comfort zone, so you should try and expand your horizons by painting with us! If you put your mind towards something, you can do anything you want! Another problem is worrying about the people's paintings around you. Who cares what their's looks like because when you go home, your's will be the only one on the wall. Painting comes with confidence, and you should always be proud of your work because you did it! We challenge all newcomers to come paint with us and step out of their comfort zone. We promise it is a great experience that if you just sit back and go with the flow, you can have an awesome time painting your own creation.... | Read More
