CHRISTMAS VIBES

holiday decor | holidays | merry christmas • December 16th, 2014

I cannot believe Christmas is 9 days away! The blogger in me totally failed with the lack of Christmas posts, but lets see if I can’t change that. I have decorated a house or two …or three, created a few fun DIY’s, and well, just generally in the holiday spirt! Hoping to share it all with you before Santa arrives. Today let’s start with what’s inspiring my decor this season!

FLEA MARKET ADVENTURES | LONG BEACH, CA

lifestyle | places • November 17th, 2014

long beach flea market

This past Sunday I took my best friend on a little flea market adventure. We hit the road at 6am, armed with a cup of strong coffee, an old dirty push cart, and dreams of finding a diamond in the ruff. Since I forgot my DSLR, my co-captain Melanie doubled as the iphoneographer (lets all give her a round of applause please @melsmarsh) To give you a little background, we think were really funny! like seriously funny. So add in the wackiness you see at the flea market and we laughed our way through the day. Making a few odd friends along the way. Since I really don’t need ANYTHING, I had a strict “needs list” (wink), but had fun helping Mel pick out things for her house. In the end we left with what I think was the best haul of the day.
Been here about 5 minutes, and the first purchase is in the cart
cow skull
These beauties wanted to come home with me, but they just weren’t on the needs list!
bar stools
This giant disco ball however. Well that, that was on the needs list!

Now lets talk about the people watching at the flea. I mean where else can you see an old man cleverly advertising his need for old fish tackle…

…or a dude (selling an awesome table by the way) wearing a t-shirt  which reads “PICKER” drinking a Heineken at 10am. picker

And the rule is, when the cart is full it’s time to GO!

Packed up and ready to hit the road! I posted this to instagram, and one of my followers aptly hastaged it #heaveninatrunk.

Heaven in a trunk indeed!

HALLOWEEN VIBES

Happy Friday! The Halloween countdown has begun. Do you have your costume ready? No? Well here are a few last minute ideas to throw on over any black ensemble. I am in LOVE with this wolf coat from Urban Outfitters, but settled for the cat eared beanie from Zara. Just adding a little striped shirt, bag of money, a little face paint, and an my “green-eyed cat burglar” is complete!
