Dress Up Your Camera with Mod Straps

modstraps (400 x 292) Dress Up Your Camera with Mod Straps
As an active blogger, I take my camera with me everywhere. And I mean everywhere. You never know when you’re going to come across something either really wonderful, like newborn colts, or really bizarre.  Sometimes, you even have to photo blog doing something for sponsors. 
When your camera becomes another accessory, you want it to look good. Mod Straps makes really fun camera accessories like camera straps and bags. Whether you have a fancy DSLR that you use for photo shoots or a compact point and shoot that you bring along, you can really express your personality. 
Mod recently sent me a camera strap and bag for my point and shoot camera. They sent me a compact camera pouch and strap in Crimson Victorian.  I had recently purchased a new camera that was supposed to be red, so this was perfect!

We’re always working out, toning the muscles of our body. Arms, legs, abs, derriere. Why is it that we don’t tone the muscles of our face? It’s well-known that by toning muscles you can help firm your skin, look younger, feel better, and burn more calories. 
There are 19 main muscles in your face.   Don’t you think that if you spent some time toning these, you would look younger? You could eliminate wrinkles and sagging, as well as have a smoother, firmer, appearance.   Facial Magic is here to help you accomplish this! 
Facial Magic is an isometric toning program. What’s that mean? It’s basically like resistance training for your face. Pretty cool, huh? It’s a 9 week program that progresses as you get used to it. You learn 18 different exercises that target 15 different areas of the face and neck. 
The best part – Facial Magic is an all natural program. In just a few minutes a day, you can work your way to a firmer appearance.  It's been featured on all kinds of TV shows and in the media.
