CAUTION: Hot girl running!

I have been up since 4am and I'm having this sudden urge to go running and its a balmy 92' at 2:30 in the afternoon. I think I might be crazy...or maybe its the Lulu-Lemon brand & blog that has inspired me to go outside and be one with the 92' weather. There is only going to be one Saturday June 27th 2009 so I best make the most of it. Pulling out the sports bra, shorts, tank top, asics, sunglass and getting myself to the nearest hill...and lets not forget a bottle of water and some music!

Schools Out Summer Is In

I have come to realize that school isn't for everyone, its for those willing to do the hard work and not ever give up when others have. This past Spring Semester was a challenge, having taken 5 classes that were all over the map. In the end it doesn't matter what anyone thinks I will have a degree that will help me be a better person. Being an Interior Design student hasn't been easy I went from design and art classes to studying about Latin America Geology which really opened my eyes. I'm starting to miss being in class, there is a void that used to be me getting up wishing I hadn't had that extra beer the night before. In a few weeks I will be starting one maybe two classes to keep the ball rolling. You're never too old to stop learning or too young to start!
Leonor, you are one of my most inspiring teacher's and really held my attention and helped me realize things about myself that I wasnt sure of. I learned so much invaluable information about Latin American Cultures and I loved how much you encouraged students to have an opinion and really challenged us. I thought of my class project on the Moche when I went to the Casa Inca restaurant, they had Moche Pottery on display. Instead of just looking at these artworks I can express to people that I Know what it is where its from and what dates they are. I think my boyfriends godmother was impressed that me the "token white girl" knew what kind of pottery she had on display at her restaurant. So once again Thank You Leonor for the big and small things you taught us this semester, they will stay forever.

*The Mercantile Flea Market* where great finds meet* Fullerton California

This past Saturday my family and I set up a booth at the "Mercantile Flea Market" in Fullerton California. I was only able to attend for few hours but it was a fun & funky market with lots of handmade jewelry, scarves, artwork, plants and home decor. My family had a booth of antiques and vintage kitchenware from my late Grandmother, she was a collector of sorts. I ended up taking 2 cherry blossom porcelain lamps that one day will be in use. There were many friendly people stopping by to check out what we had and purchasing. I would recommend this market for young artists and designers. There is more info on how to get a booth if you scroll down.

If you see this mural you know your right around the corner from the flea market.
