Wow. What a week...

It's been a little crazy.

Emotionally, mentally and physically. But then again, how else do we grow?

The best news is...I'M MOVED IN!

This is my new hometown and I'm SO excited!

My fish is happy.

And Jesse Holland and I had our little photoshoot session in Berkeley last week. It was the terrific topper to a truly horrific day. So thanks Jesse, for making my day end on a positive note!

I'm still camera-less so as soon as I get that remedied/clean up the mess that is my new condo I'll share more pictures with you guys!

Right now my clean desktop is floating my boat and making this new workspace the best place ever! I hope you've all had a fantastic week so far and are enjoying the [finally] sunny weather!




A Few Do-Dads...

Since I've been gone from the blog for so long I have some awesome finds to share with you all!

First up, a necklace I found this morning in an Etsy showcase. I love that little piece of periwinkle fabric in the middle, and the paisley shape of it. Beautiful.

I saw this GORGEOUS clutch on Oh Joy! this week. Look at the colors...and the sequins...so pretty. If I wasn't saving up for a sofa...

I saw this yummy colored blackberry lip stain on Etsy a couple of weeks ago. Look at that pretty berry color...

I've been seeing these necklaces on various blogs all over the interwebs, but this is my current favorite. Such an interesting idea, and I love the color combos.

I'm a little hesitant to try hand-made shoes, especially a pair of go-to flats, but these black flats are adorable, and look really comfortable. Plus, I'm all for supporting hand-made...

These earrings were in a showcase last week. I love the concept, and I love how they sit on your ears. Really cute.

Lastly, I may or may not have just bought this pattern so that I can crochet a humpback whale to sit on my couch. Like I said, 50/50 chance I just bought it...:) Oh come on, who wouldn't want to hug a whale?!

Well, that's all my finds for today, readers. I hope you found something that could inspire you on this lazy Sunday. Have a great week, and I'll check in with you at my new place!



It Has Been A While, Hasnt It?

I'm not going to lie. I've been avoiding my blog. Mostly because I don't know how to write about what's going on in my life right now.

I guess the most important thing that's happening is that I'm moving next week! :) That's number 25 on my 25 List, but I'm taking care of it first. Ran into a great opportunity, and starting next Saturday I will be living in a condo 3 blocks from the fabulous and adorable down town Pleasanton. I'm very very excited to make this change in my life and to live in a place I can be proud of and really LIVE in.

This rather large life-changing event brings my to my next important change in my life. I will be, unfortunately, making this move alone. Sans KN, sans Kitten Kat. I shouldn't use this place to share the how and the why, but just know that this is the right decision for me, and while I am sad, I'm also really excited to start living this new stage in my life.

Currently my lonely apartment is sort of a mid-moving mess. Boxes galore, clothes in bags, cleaning supplies out in the open, empty rooms and no couch. But it gives me a chance to really think about my new place and what sort of personality I will bring the space.

Like this really rad, retro sofa, for instance. Complete with espresso brown matching chair? Would be nice :)

Of course, being on my own in my apartment for the first time in 2 years has really given me the chance to sit down and do what I used to to all the time; be creative. Not that living with someone took that away, I guess I just didn't sit and force myself to do it. Lately I've been listening to a lot of really great music and trying to create as much as I can. (Great music being Florence + The Machine, Bon Iver, St. Vincent, The Sundays, Keane, Iron and Wine, and Beach House). Right now my desk smells of colored pencil wax, and I love it :)

Next weekend marks the big move, and I'll be sure to show as much as I can. My digital camera status is still in limbo, but right now I'm leaning towards this guy. Anyone have any point and shoot digital camera recommendations?

And speaking of cameras, I have my contest-winning photoshoot with the fabulous and talented Jesse Holland on Monday. I'm VERY excited, and I may or may not have had a mini fashion show in my bedroom today. I've settled on my outfits, so I think we're good to go.

Thank you so much for your understanding in my absence. I look forward to showing my moving progress on my blog. Can't wait for everyone to see! Have a fantastic weekend!
