I seriously can't believe that October is almost over. I feel like I say this every month, but that seemed really quick...did it not? Well, now we have arrived at the climax, Halloween. What are your plans?! I am dressing up as Edie Sedgwick tonight and carving pumpkins while watching It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown . Afterwards there are a couple of options but most likely I will be here for a little dance party. Tomorrow night I will be dressing as the lovely Dolly Parton and plan on going to a couple places about Denver. It should be a funfilled weekend.
This little mobile shop is the cutest thing I've ever seen! Vanessa and Dan Lurie live in Portland, and created their store on wheels, Wanderlust, out of an old vintage trailer. They actually got their inspiration from the exploding food cart scene in Portland. Why stop at food--they cleverly thought to themselves. A traveling retail store seemed like the obvious next step. The result? Portable awesomeness. Follow their adventures here.
"Jeana’s parents pushed her early on to pursue a career as a concert pianist, but her fingers were too stubby for musical greatness… Instead Jeana put her stubby fingers to good use drawing all day long until her stubby fingers were sore. Jeana and her stubby fingers attended university in Korea, completing a program in graphic design…"
I can relate to stubby fingers. I have them too. :)
After studying graphic design in Korea, she moved to the US and studied at CalArts. She now resides in Los Angeles. She has beautiful blog and makes beautiful art. The cool colors she uses remind me of wintertime. It's almost here folks...
I'm off to fabulous New Mexico tomorrow, so I will be saying goodbye a bit early this week. My sister and I are going to Ojo Caliente for a little spa weekend. I'm super excited to just relax and enjoy myself. Hope you will be doing the same! x.
When it comes to jewelry, I am all about keeping it simple. I like pieces that are versatile and easy to mix and match with just about anything. Noble Town Vintage is filled with bohemian chic necklaces and earrings for the everyday. And the bast part? It's affordable. All the jewelry has this lovely rustic, Southwestern feel to it. The necklaces can stand alone but are also wonderful layering pieces. The designer, Sarah Pace, lives in Salt Lake City and has an incredible talent for reconstructing vintage finds. In an interview about her work she says:
"So far my inspiration has been of strong geometric shapes mixed with raw, earthy elements. I'm drawn to simple silhouettes, repeating themes and pieces that stand on their own or layer for more interest. Making jewelry that can look just as great with cut offs as they do with a cocktail dress is my aim."
Most of the Cookie Boy website is in Japanese, so it's hard to really know the story behind these cookies. But-- aren't they fantastic? I love the glasses and mustache one. What is your favorite? Happy Monday.
Hello folks! This weekend has been so beautiful here in Denver. I spent the day at the park riding my bike and throwing the frisbee around. It was pretty wonderful. I like that feeling you get when you've been active all day...it's so invigorating. Tonight I am just going to make dinner and watch movies. I've been a bit of a homebody lately. Partly because I'm broke but also cause I kinda like it. I've been busy at work for the past couple of weeks so it's really so nice to come home and just lay around the house. Anyhow, thought I'd pop in and share some neat stuff I saw around the web this week...
I love my little silver bullet. It is just the perfect size for me and it rides really nicely (despite a bit of break squeaking). I have to say that when it comes to riding my bike I am a bit girly (who knew?). I am definitely that girl riding around town in a skirt or dress. I already bought a helmut but that doesn't stop me from researching all the pretty little accessories available online. A while ago, I found The Bicycle Muse, an adorable little shop in San Francisco that has everything from helmets that look like fashionable hats, to purses and baskets. It does make me laugh a little to see how much these companies have really started to cater to the trendy bike rider. Here are some examples...
I used to wear rings--three on one hand, two on the other. For some reason I stopped though. They seemed to get in the way too much and I was afraid that I would loose them if I ever took them off. Also they felt a little bulky on my hands; I felt so much freer without them. Recently though, I have become drawn to them again. I like how simple some of these are. It's like you might just forget you're wearing a ring at all. I also really love the creature rings; they're just so fun and quirky. So perhaps I will have a change of heart.
