2012 Harley-Davidson FLSTFB Softail Fat Boy Lo Review

Fat, dark and strong, this down-and-dirty version of the custom icon is the big dog on the road

Building on the Fat Boy® legacy, the Fat Boy® Lo brought a darker, slammed appearance to the world of boulevard cruisers. From front to back, this custom cruiser shows attitude, with custom, black bullet hole wheels, a denim black frame, blacked-out covers and header shields, and satin chrome in all the places mirror chrome would normally reside. A slammed, narrow-cut seat rides just 24.25-inches off the ground, while the forward foot controls and low, 1.25-inch handlebar create a secure stance that inspires a cruising state of mind. With the new addition of anti-lock brakes in the Security Package option, the Fat Boy Lo truly remains at the head of the pack.

Custom House Portraits by Michelle -0-

Buying a home can be a huge step in life. It can make you feel somehow grounded and extremely hopeful at the same time. Grounded in a sense of permanence and hopeful for a fresh start and, if you're like me, a brand new design to life with a fresh palette and a clean canvas.

It takes time to decorate a home just the way you want it and to track down artwork that fits your style and budget. There's something so special about buying art that's personal and seeing it every day in your home. Personalized art also makes for an exceptional one-of-a-kind gift for someone you love. That's why I wanted to share with you the artwork of watercolor painter Michelle Schneider. Her colorful and whimsical style is both creative and eye-catching and makes for a beautiful addition to any room in your home.

I had her paint an 8x10" house portrait as a gift for my friend. I can't wait to give it to her! Michelle made this video to show the process of the portrait.

Some people are seriously so talented!

Here is how my friend's house turned out!

I have spent many hours in my friend's front yard, on her front steps and in her home so this painting is special to me too. It captures the happy feeling that I have every time I enter her home. 

Michelle doesn't just create pieces she loves she creates art that is special to people and tells a story. If you want to see what I mean you have to read this precious story

Michelle created these bird paintings as part of her twelve bird challenge which you an read more about here

You can purchase your own house portrait or browse her large collection of artwork (both prints and originals) available in her shop. Mother's Day is right around the corner so be sure to get your order in soon to make sure you have it in time! You can also follow her blog or on Instagram to see more sneak peeks into her studio.

Feature Friday: City Farmhouse -0-

Today I am featuring the home of Jen from the blog City Farmhouse. Her home is a great example of how you can maintain a cozy cottage vibe living near a big city.  Here is what she says she loves most about her home:

What I love about my house...I love how bright & open the space is. We have tons of windows and from almost every one I have beautiful views of the bay & a barrier island. I love to wake up early especially in the warmer months to have coffee on my porch in the morning when the world is still asleep to watch the sunrise over the water, to count my blessings and find a little bit of peace before my busy day begins.

Dragon Ball Z HD Wallpaper -0-

Like a certain radioactive spider, Dragon Ball Z is the catalyst for my Anime Fan Origin Story. Growing up with the ludicrous high-flying, hard-hitting adventures of Son Goku and friends, it puts me in kind of a tough position as both a super-hardcore Dragon Ball fan and a person who writes video game reviews whenever a new Dragon Ball game comes out.
