Taking a Bite out of Life gets a make-over

I don't really know how to say this, so I'm just gonna say it:
I've changed my blog.  You see, for some time Taking a Bite out of Life was begging for a new look. It kept saying "Valerie, I've grown out of this title and I want a fresh appearance!" just like any other self respecting blog, and I would respond, "In due time young padawon, in due time."
Really though, my inner self was thinking:


 I decided I was too busy to do it while in school and with all of the other new years resolutions of change and improvement, so came the blog make-over as well. 

With that being said, Laaaadies and gentlemen,  Taking a Bite out of Life will now be known as Valpo Studio!

 I really hope this doesn't prove horribly confusing, but it was time that I put to rest the title my 18 year old self so wittily concocted and moved to a more centralized name. You may learn more about its new title in the "Start Here" tab at the top of the page. 

In other news, I apologize for being to MIA over the past few weeks. Vacation for some means a break from school and work, whereas for me it means a break from all intelligent life, technology, and any pants without a stretchy waistband! Sadly though, vacation is coming to an end and this girl is back in action. In fact, I am proud to announce that I'm FINALLY an Iphone owner! I feel like such a cool kid :) So follow me on twitter and instagram to your hearts content cause things are about to get craaazy! haha 


I hope everyones vacation has been as relaxing as mine! Hang in there with the changes, and I will too!


Muah!

    1. Natalia! It's partially an abbreviation for Portraits by Valerie, which was a business of mine, and partially after the City of Valparaiso Chile. My Husband used to live there and I adore hoe colorful and artistic it is! Is that where you live?

  4. Your blog is lovely, but the photo of the black woman with en-captioned "ain't nobody got time for dat" is extremely racist. I'd consider the implications of adding stereotypical jargon prior to hitting the publish button.

    1. To whom this may concern:
      I apologize if it was offensive to you. That quote and photo was not an original of mine but rather, has been a comic relief amongst many Pinterest pins and youtube videos recently, therefore I assumed it would be recognized as such and likewise relatable. That was the quote that came to mind, and as a visual person, I added the photo with which I originally saw the quote attached. I'm sorry if it was anything but relatable to you, as it was intended to be light-hearted, not stereotypical. Anyone who knows me personally (or my dating record) knows I am anything but racist and I hope that my blog does not come off as such. If it offensive, along with anything else on my blog, I implore you not to read it as that is not my intention.

  5. I thought the "ain't nobody got time for that" was a good touch.... somebody apparently doesn't watch youtube.

    Love the new look Val!
