Trina Turk & Jonathan Skow's 25th Wedding Anniversary

To me Trina is like the really cool Aunt I never had, she just has a life and style that I think is really passionate, creative and she seemed to work really hard to get everything she has. There aren't many celeb's/designer women that I look up to besides her and

Gwen Stefani. I understand that now they must be rich and have lots of help and all, but they weren't always privileged. It just shows that if you really want something you will find a way to get there in life.

I really enjoyed reading this post by Trina Turk and it was just really inspiring to see that she and her husband are real people and that she has seen so many cool places and grown into a famous designer alongside her husband.
Trina Turk is one of my fav designers and I loved reading her blog. She shared a few private photos in honor of her 25th wedding anniversary with husband Jonathan Skow. Together they make a great couple.

25TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY - OCT 2010

25 years ago today, Jonathan and I jumped into his silver Buick Skylark and drove from LA to Las Vegas. It was a blazing hot day there. We did a little thrift shopping, and then got married at the Justice of the Peace. The wedding cost $40. As far as we know, it's legal. In 1985, Las Vegas was still the "old" Vegas. There were no celebrity chefs or over the top new hotels. We celebrated that night with dinner at Ceasar's Palace.

Our lives have been busy since 1985. We've restored 4 houses, travelled the world for work and play, seen hundreds of films, shopped flea markets, modernism shows, vintage clothing expos, designer boutiques, auctions and estate sales, explored buildings on architectural tours, and started a clothing company that has evolved into a mini lifestyle brand. Jonathan switched careers from fashion styling to photography. Luckily, we've taken photos along the way:

Claremont Village

My mom and I have been going to Claremont forever now, and if you follow this blog than you know it too! It's a cute town that's near the foothills, has colleges, food, beer and cute shops to wonder in. 

We decided to take Loki with us that day, and it was so damn hot...is this the hottest summer in a while? Or do I just forget the prior years...eaither way it was on fire in Claremont that day. 

We stumbled upon a taco shack that was undeniably cute! I'm working on finding the name of it, I can't seem to find it on any listing.
Over by the restroom by the taco shop there was the wood csrbed donkey so we had to take pics with it! Poor Loki was so hot that day! 
Enjoying chipa and salsa at the taco shack.




A few things I do that make me feel like me

I start work in two hours so that means I have just enough time to start writing a blog post. Its been an inspiring week and I feel like there are signs from all over the universe guiding me into the right direction. I have had some meaningful time spent alone as well as with other people. I'm trying to have "more fun" and not worry so much about the little things. A few weeks ago I saw a psychic and she told me a ton of things, it was super strange to feel so vulnerable and unsure if what she was saying was true or not. 

The things she said that made me think... Ill be a mother, not now but in a few years. That I will be a successful Business woman, because I have vision and drive. That I have a dark spirit following me, That I want to be happy but that I only will be if I let whatever happened to me in my past go free.
As you can see it was pretty intense, full of tears and I was scared, but I knew that she was right because for a long time I had been unhappy and it was…

Village at La Floresta Walking Tour

Hi y'all it's been a few weeks since the opening of the new shopping center in Brea "Village at La Floresta" and I've finally had some time to share my experience and photos that I took that day!

As some of you may know, this new shopping center has been in the works for a few years now and is part of a whole new community of new custom homes and even a retirement home as well as a swimming club all under the umbrella of La Floresta, a master planned community.

One of the big draws for this new community is the fact that they had a whole foods as part of their shopping centers new tenants, and us crazy people in North oc have been having to go out to Tustin to get our fix of pre-peeled oranges and lemon infused water, I kid...lol do people really buy that crap anyway? Wenever I go it's usually to buy something fun from the beauty section or the salad bar!!! Yum!!!

When I went out to see the new location a few weeks ago I went in on the opening day! Crazy I t…
