2020 Empties

2020 Empties

2020 Empties

I actually saved all of my used up beauty products for a year just to make a 2020 Empties post. Let’s sort through all my trash and discuss what I loved, hated, and indifferent to. There’s a few things I’d most certainly replace. Anyway, here’s the video. I hope you enjoy this trash journey with me. (Just kidding, I recycle most of the things because Edmonton has a innovative recycling program. One of the few compliments I have for this city.)

The 2020 Blooper Reel

The 2020 Blooper Reel

The 2020 Blooper Reel

My year doesn’t officially begin until I’ve rounded up the unflattering photos from the previous year. The 2020 Blooper Reel is finally here. And although Instagram has appropriated the name for the TikTok-esque feature, its meaning remains the same here. Last year I believed that we were easing ourselves into a new decade, oh was I incorrect on that front. 2020 was treacherous in so many ways, it seems cruel to recount it all on such a light hearted post. There are far fewer outtakes this year since I didn’t produce nearly as much content as I normally do. 2021 will be different. I may be stuck at home, but I can still get dressed if only to show it off to the internet and my cat. ALRIGHT! I’ve linked the original post under each photo should you fancy seeing how the good shots turned out. 🙂

The Trifecta of Bloopers

There is no shortage of weird photos when you’re trying to get in motion walking shots or close up portraits. This is a great smattering of what I usually have to edit through: eyes shut and awkward walking. The shot below is a new one though, it looks like I’m riding an invisible miniature pony side saddle.

Not sure what the face was about but shortly after I changed into my comfortable shoes (VANS slips). Often, the uncomfortable but photogenic shoes are replaced immediately after the shots are done. In this particular case, we were spending the evening at the Desert Botanical Gardens for Electric Desert. I would, under no circumstances, recommend wandering around there after dark in heels. 

Perfecting my royal wave to all the obnoxious men who were honking their horns and yelling crude things at me.

THE ACTUAL INSTAGRAM POST

The Robot Takes Spokane

Getting an “in motion” shot is always a goal of any shoot. However, for every one great action shot, there are many more that look bizarro like this.

The 2020 Blooper Reel

With that, I conclude the 2020 Blooper Reel! The most treasured and beloved post of the year. Thank you all so much for continuing to be a part of my blogging journey and actually visiting this site still! It means so much to me that I was able to turn my dream job of working for a magazine (graduating in a recession was a nightmare) into running my own virtual magazine-esque site. Nothing feels better than being able to help you all have dope vacations, be inspired to thrift, or make you laugh at my expense. It’s what motivates me to keep creating content from long form blogs, youtube videos, and even Instagram posts year after year. As always, feel free to reach out and ask my any questions or request blog topics! My email is sandy @sandyjoekarpetz.com or leave a comment below. 🙂

How to Make Fresh Pasta at Home

How to Make Fresh Pasta at Home

How to Make Fresh Pasta at Home

Since I’ve spent the majority of the past year at home, I’ve been acquiring new skills. One of these new skills is How to Make Fresh Pasta. I am a clumsy chef, so do not be alarmed. Here are the recipes I worked from:

Eggless Pasta Dough
(includes instructions on how to cut pasta without a machine)

Easy Vegan Pesto 

Scarpetta Fresh Tomato and Basil Sauce
(the tomato sauce is not vegan. it has parmigiano reggiano and butter in it)
