HAPPY NEW YEAR! Say it with me – it’s 2020! I hope you enjoyed the holiday break. I crave normalcy and my regular schedule so I am ready for everything and everyone to get back into the daily groove. That being said, it’s become an annual tradition for me to show you what doesn’t make the blog. Let’s be honest, blogging and influencing is about great imagery. Beautifully shot pictures are what people expect to see on here. But today, I am going to pull back the curtain and let you in on a little secret – I’m not perfect! So enjoy the outtakes and other funny stuff that happens during shoots. Get ready to laugh…

Do you set New Year’s resolutions? Goals? I typically look back at the previous year and try to improve on it. 2019 was pretty fantastic for me both personally and on the blog. Lots of TRAVEL, FASHION, BEAUTY and LIFESTYLE blog posts. It makes me really wan to travel more. The good news is that several trips are already planned. What else would you like to see on here? Leave me a comment because I really want to blog about topics that you are interested in.

Each of the pictures below is linked to the original blog post. In case you are actually interested in what I have on. Not that the awkward picture is going to help sell anything. Oh and be sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom for the biggest laugh of me on the beach. ENJOY!

xoxo – Tanya

P.S. Obviously, I should never actually take a bite of anything while shooting. Especially a croissant!

Outtakes and Other Funny Stuff

Tanya Foster in Lafayette 148 sitting with coffee

As much as I love this entire ensemble from Lafayette 148, I’m not sure why Vogue isn’t trying to book me for a fashion shoot. The pose. The attitude. Why isn’t my phone ringing off the wall???


Colleen Rothschild cleanser

WOW! Do you use this Colleen Rothschild cleansing balm to wash your face? Or do you eat it? Can’t really tell given my expression.


Tanya Foster twirling in a printed dress

There’s a reason I shouldn’t twirl. In a dress. Ever.


Wearing all white while applying Mary Kay pink lipstick

What is this dramatic leg position while applying pink lipstick? Bonus points for good shoes!


Tanya Foster in a pink one shoulder Gal Meets Glam dress

Gosh, I’m shocked that the Gal Meets Glam brand didn’t immediately feature this picture on their site. Pasty white skin in a pink dress while awkwardly removing lipstick from my teeth.


Tanya in shorts and white sweater set

Remember that thing about twirling? That applies to shorts and a sweater set too. Obviously!


Tanya Foster in a one-piece swimsuit in Aruba

What’s the best part of this outtake from our trip to Aruba? 1) The tourist that won’t move so that we can get the clean shot.   2) The lovely tummy rolls in my swimsuit.   3) My expression about it all.  PRICELESS!


Tanya Foster in a black dress

When you really need a tissue… Gesundheit!


This blog post is about ‘How to wear flare jeans‘ which obviously, I am thrilled about. Can’t you tell???


Tanya Foster in a purple sweater

I actually asked Audrie if this pose was good. Can you even???


Tanya in Soma pajamas with a Beauty Bio GloPro

Ever get the giggles and can’t stop? I’m sure my photographer Audrie Dollins was like ‘Can we please move on…’! In all seriousness, this was an awesome giveaway!


Tanya Foster in a black lace dress

Where do I even begin? Let’s see…  Weird post, gray roots a mile long, holding tulips for no apparent reason and I should NEVER tuck my hair behind my ears. Shall I go on??? This cute black dress never had a chance.


Red blouse and white jeans while at the State Fair of Texas

Did you know that I am fiercely competitive? I’m not even playing against anyone while we were shooting this Draper James look at the State Fair of Texas. Yet, I am elated that I won!  WEIRD!


Grand Prize Winning Blooper

Tanya Foster on the beach in Aruba

Over served and snoozing on the beach in Aruba. Thank goodness I had on SPF 50 sunscreen! Pete Foster thought that this was so funny and snapped it while I was asleep. I am sorry for anyone on the beach that day that had to witness this. How’s that for a highly stylized shot? GEEZ!
