Muriel's Wedding

Muriels Wedding is what you get when you mix early 90s culture, Australia and ABBA. To think that al these years I would walk by this movie on the shelf at blockbuster...what was I thinking. How is it that I hadn't seen this film before? Maybe you have already and you might think its so-so, but I think that its some sort of a cult classic! I love Toni Colette's character and how she is out of her mind in many ways, and gotta love the ABBA soundtrack. As a kid I listened to them all-the-time!

If you know a thing or two about fashion then you have picked up on the ever rising 90s trend that's been just waiting to become mainstream again. Come on you know you wanna wear a silk Dolce & Gabanna shirt with your colored jeans! And don't forget about those neon Navajo printed skirts/shirts you name it its Navajo.

A friend of mine put a photo of us as kids on her Facebook and it got us all starting up on what we were wearing. Lots of floral and brown lipstick! Wow, did any of you wear that shade on your lips?

The girl in the background looks alot like what I did as a kid in the 90s. I had that Stephanie tanner thing going on. I always wanted to be like her even though now I look back and think she was more annoying than the neighbor.

Part of me realllllllllllly wants to wear a cropped long sleeved shirt. And then part of me is like wtf are you thinking? And then I'm like yeah that's not gonna work.

If you have or have not seen this film just watch it for the awesome fashion and the strangely funny story-line.

OMG. LOVE LOVE LOVE Muriel's Wedding. In fact, upon receiving my Kindle Fire, this was the VERY first thing I watched with my streaming netflix.

My first boyfriend and I watched this tons, and would yell out to each other -- "Yurr Turribul Mewr-eeee-elll." Hee.

Thanks for reminding the world about the awesomeness that is this flick.

Oh, and in parting -- "Yah CUHNT STAHWP PROW-GRESS!!!"

Mercantile Market May 7th

Some of you may, or may not know that I have taken up a hobby of selling at Flea Markets! I have done two so far this year at the Mercantile Market in Downtown Fullerton, they're super fun and rewarding. I put lots of thought into what I'm doing because this is after all an expression of myself. There is a ton of behind the scenes work that goes into planning for these shows, I have to go hunting for pieces I know my customers will love and I try my best to listen to what you want and find it!

I also have an online store where I sell mostly apparel for baby, kids & adult so please check it out!


Here is my booth at the Mercantile Market this past May! This time around I brought my vintage clothing collection as well as second hand kids wear! Such a hit, if you love unique bright and fun clothing I have it! 
We sell succulents in vintage mugs and the're going for amazing prices! They make great gifts! Also so many people wanted to buy my display, its not for sale, but …

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…
