instant sticky prints.

when i opened up the latest email from photojojo i may have jumped a little with excitement. they introduced the new polaroid z2300 and it is a bunch of fun just waiting to happen! it’s a digital camera that produces color prints with a sticky back…instant magic! an added bonus is that it’s point and shoot sized so that you can take it with you wherever you go.

girl time.

there’s nothing like spending the day doing fun stuff and getting silly with your friends. i’m not a huge group/party type of girl. not anymore. the older i get, the more i appreciate small get-togethers and one-on-one time with those i love. when i’m with someone i want to put my focus on them. i guess it’s kind of my way of showing them how important they are to me. here’s a glimpse of my girl time from tuesday with my bff {we did a little early b-day celebrating – hers, not mine} by venturing out of our neighborhoods to explore – super fun!…

what’s always in order during a day of fun? why, an impromptu photo shoot of course!

we took these photos in front of an apartment building with a crazy-fun painted exterior. we were giggling at ourselves so hard and i’m sure all the people thought we were silly. they’d be right. we totally are.

stampin’ around.

yellow owl workshop always has the cutest items. when i recently spotted these stamps sets i put them on my wish list.

which one would you go for? it’s hard to choose since both sets have an animal!

red vs. black.

so it’s a brand new year. does that mean it’s time for a brand new bag? hmmm…one can never have too many, right? i’ve had my eye on this organic canvas screen printed tote by fluffyco. there’s a red heart on one side and black on the other so you’ve got options depending on your mood.

two-sided heart tote by fluffyco: $49.00

happy halloween.

halloween is pretty great, right? there’s the dressing up, the candy, and my favorite part…all the scary movies that are brought back in small theaters and on tv. what will you be doing? i’ll be at the candy store in san francisco where they’re having their 5th annual halloween event {they give away tons of candy…for free!}. have fun and be safe!

cute, right?

double dutch sweets at the candy store.

i am 100% totally in love with oakland’s double dutch sweets. confectioner shiyuan’s creation the ramona bar is ridiculously delicious. imagine a fancy, high-end version of a snickers bar that includes nougat with peanuts and a layer of salted caramel, all covered in dark chocolate with salt sprinkled across the top. yes, i am drooling right now as well. the one place here in the city of san francisco where you can pick up some of her bars is the candy store in russian hill.

even better news is that shiyuan will be at the candy store this thursday for a confectioner showcase where you can meet with her and sample her chocolate. while there you can enjoy some champagne and take advantage of a 10% discount on any purchase you make throughout the event.

where: the candy store, 1507 vallejo street {at polk}

bouncy in san francisco.

so…this is new to me, but a few years ago there was a commercial that aired where thousands of colorful bouncy balls made their way down the streets {and crazy hills} of san francisco. danish photographer, peter funch was able to capture the action and the limited edition prints are available for sale at Lumas. check these photos…

amazing, right?! i can’t believe that really happened! here’s the video {i think it’s beautiful}…

my loves, i am super duper excited to share this with you. if you’ve been a reader since way back when, you’ll know i used to have a jewelry line called on a friday. when i left home to venture out to san francisco i had temporarily shut down my site. or it was supposed to be temporary. well, three+ years later, i am proud to announce that i have finally, finally relaunched on a friday a little over one week ago. it has been a lot of fun, a lot of work, a lot of restyling of the look of the site {and business cards, packaging, etc. – read about it here}. thanks to lindsay, of course, i am once again able to have a shiny new shop that i am thrilled about. i hope that you’ll enjoy it! here’s a peek…
