Minnie Mouse!

As promised... my Minnie Mouse halloween costume! I finally finished my first dress ever - and I can't even tell you how much I learned about sewing and clothes construction. It was definitely a fun project! And it even had my favorite feature: pockets :)

Minnie Bow

I decided to make my own costume this year... And I'm so excited to share some photos of my Minnie Mouse costume with you after this weekend (it's the first dress piece of clothing I've ever made)! But for now - here's a sneak peak of the bow I made to match my dress. HAPPY HALLOWEEN everyone!

Sequin Grafitti

Isn't this street grafitti made of sequins just the most amazing and beautiful thing you've ever seen?! Love how it glistens in the sunlight. This is an installation in Reykjavik, Iceland by Danish/Czech artist Theresa Himmer.

Big Red Bow

I've got BIG RED BOWS on my mind while I am seriously sewing up a storm for my halloween costume. Can you guess what I'm making?

If you follow me on twitter you might have a few more clues :)

Check out my previous installments here.

LEAF: How to Knit

I've tried to teach myself to knit several times, never able to finish anything larger than the size of a coaster! But I'm motivated by this video to once again try to knit a scarf. Another great vide from LEAF!

Lana Del Rey

Here's two songs from another great new artist that I discovered on WAH. These songs aren't move your feet dance songs like The Drummer, but the videos are dreamy and beautiful and make me feel so peaceful. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

The Drummer by Niki & The Dove

I discovered this song on We Are Hunted last week and I have had it on replay nearly ever since. I can't help but rock my head, tap my feet, and shake my booty every time I hear it. There is just something about this song I can't explain. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Do you ever find a new song that makes you feel like that??

{the video is a little on the strange side - but around 2:38 they bust out some great dance moves that I definitely plan to incorporate into my repertoire}

**Note - My computer has taken ill and will have a visit to the dr (aka genius bar) later this week - so without all fancy apps to edit photos, I'll be bringing you a week of video fun. Who's excited?!

Miss Representation

Can't wait to see this documentary.

Gold Glitter Pants

I've been wanting some gold glitter pants ever since I saw This Is It, but never took the plunge... as I thought they might be a bit much. These gold and black glitter pants feel just right. So inspired by Taylor Tomasi Hill as usual.

Check out my new gold love chronicled here.

LEAF: How to Layer

Just because the real fall finally showed up in SF doesn't mean we can predict the weather throughout the day any better than usual. It's all about the layering! Isn't this video from LEAF super cute?!

For Steve Jobs

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." - Steve Jobs.

Don't know what it is about exclamation points... but they always seem to end a sentence more positive and upbeat! (at least when I overuse them)!! Who doesn't love a smile or a laugh accentuated with exclamations?!
