Waste Land

Finally got the chance this weekend to watch Waste Land after having watched the trailer a few months ago - and it is definitely one of my new favorite documentaries. It was highly inspiring, so if you get the chance to check it out you should!

Filmed over nearly three years, Waste Land follows artist Vik Muniz as he journeys from his home base in Brooklyn to his native Brazil and the world's largest garbage dump, Jardim Gramacho, located on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. There he photographs an eclectic band of “catadores”—self-designated pickers of recyclable materials. Muniz’s initial objective was to “paint” the catadores with garbage. However, his collaboration with these inspiring characters as they recreate photographic images of themselves out of garbage reveals both the dignity and despair of the catadores as they begin to re-imagine their lives.

Enough with planning for fall... let's focus on summer! As soon as the sun comes packing heat I'm ready to slip on a great striped summer dress like this one. Happy Friday everyone - have a great Memorial Day Weekend!!

Madewell Fall

Even though I'm eager to welcome the summer warmth, these looks from Madewell make me even more excited for fall! Can't wait for more stripes, layers, and a touch of nerdy chic!

Crystal Bullet Necklace

Usually I don't lust after jewelry with natural rocks but lately they've been catching my eye. And I'm definitely in need of one of these Crystal Bullet Necklaces by Unearthen. The contrast between the manmade bullet and the natural form of the crystals is just stunning!

Vegas Lights

While in Vegas this past weekend, I managed to take a number of drive-and-walk-by photos of all the fantastic lights at night! Including some from a really random taxi tour of the downtown area of Fremont Street! What a fun weekend full of great food, great shows and even greater company!!

Scout & Catalogue

Scarves have become a new favorite accessory for me... and while I normally don't tend to like the tie-die look {mostly because it reminds me too much of my awkward middle school days where I definitely rocked that look too often} I am really loving the nomad and lasso scarves from Scout & Catalogue.

Tourist Time

Our friends from LA were visiting this weekend and it was a blast! We managed to show them quite a nice blend of tourist attractions and neighborhood hot spots. From riding the cable cars and eating sundaes at Ghirardelli to eating pastries from Tartine, ice cream from Bite-rite and sunning in Dolores Park - we definitely packed in more than a weeks worth of good food into two days!

And I managed to score this sweet neon pink watch for only $12 at a class Pier39 souvenir shop! Doesn't it compliment my cobalt speedies well?!

Love this black and white photo series from Eye Poetry. (thanks Ali for bringing my attention to it by pinning it!)

Orange Clutch

I must have this Clare Vivier fold-over clutch!

Happy Gma Day too!

I didn't get a chance to send a card to my grandmother in time this year... so I just snapped these photos to send to her this morning! Aren't they fun!? And so easy to make... :)

Happy Mother's Day!

What a fun picture of my Mom and I at an air show at Moffet field. I especially love the looks on our faces! Happy Mother's Day Mom! Love you!

Cozy Sweaters

After a heat wave during the week quickly takes a turn to a cold and windy Saturday like today, all I want to do is cozy up in a oversized sweater like one of these!

Taking Color Cues

Taking cues from J.Crew's looks to love, I've pulled some color palettes together that are just to die for! Love the style in each of these looks and love love the color combinations!

Sunnies Display

I'm grooving on this idea of displaying your sunnies as a part of the art on your walls. Remember jewelry on display?! My sunglasses collection is currently filled with mostly five dollar throw-aways but perhaps one day when they are more worthy I'll consider this approach to display+storage.

101 Salads

On a hot day like today has been nothing is better than a cool refreshing salad for dinner! Here's 101 salad recipes to try... I can't wait to get ingredients for 41 and 83.


Inslee By Design

Aren't these prints from Inslee By Design just the greatest?! I am seriously in love with the People Watching print above. Perhaps one day I can commission a sketch of myself!

Love these jewelry pieces created by artist Yong Joo Kim, who finds the hidden beauty in mundane objects like velcro shown here.
