The Eternal Suffering

Getting the urge to blog 45 mins before you have to work. And looking like a bum, hot mess crazy person. I think right now it's more important that I blog than I get ready. Because my job can wait. They have made me wait...made me feel like a mouse running after a piece of cheese.
  So there you go! 

But after hearing this song, I feel like I can conquer the world! I can do whatever I want. I got that urge of voicing my opinions onto social media..will someone be listening? Who knows? I just think it's healthier to vent here rather than do drugs and or become an alcoholic.  
The other thing driving me crazy is the SADS! I tried to swear it off last year by keeping myself busy at night. But it has proven to come haunt me again. That early setting sun...with its painfully long nights.  Alright I'm off to work. Wishing this post was a bit more appealing, but its not. Get over it :)

Patchwork Festival Santa Ana

Its That Time Of Year Again!  -PATCHWORK FESTIVAL - (this aint yo grammas church craft fair) -SANTA ANA-
Forget about Black Friday, it's all about having an awesome Sunday Funday at Patchwork Festival in Santa Ana CA ya'll! Something for everyone, that means bring your man...get him liquored up at the local brunch joint aka Memphis...and spend the day saying "that's cute..omg...I wish I knew how to make that..." over all 100+  booths full of hand made & locally made arts & crafts and artisinal goods. Just when you thought it was over there is live music and really good food trucks.

Don't Dream It's Over

I'm listening to Crowded House obvs...and my blog looks like it's stuck in a 2008 theme (as far as looks) and it knows that it needs a new look desperately. My blog is depressed...and has been laying on the couch in its pajamas till noon since I last year.

You all probably know by now that I love Vintage.  But it hasn't been 20 years since I started blogging so the look is beginning to become how do I say... OUT DATED, OUT OF STYLE, DEPRESSINGLY BLAH, IN NEED OF A MAKEOVER! 
This is how I want it to look... FRESH, FUN, HIP, COLORFUL & LIVELY LIKE THESE GALS BELOW!

Well my friends, it's time to start working on a new design for Deco Aurora! 


Wellwell...where do I start? Where do I begin? I'm alive and well and I have been gone but not forgotten about my blog and my readers! In all honesty, my computer wouldn't let me type on my own blog! That's crazy talk huh...well I think its time I get a new computer to match all of the other new things in my life! I guess since I haven't been blogging in a while I have all these creative juices flowing in my mind, not to mention stories and pictures of my adventures over the last 6 months. Lucky me it's fall, the perfect time to cozy up to a keypad and a blanket :) So get ready to start seeing me in your feed! Can't wait!

    Feeling so close to something you want is such a tease. I feel like a kid again when I could see the upper grade playground across the field that was not to be touched but watched until you were old enough. I'm old enough, I'm ready I'm here and I'm letting you know that I want to start tomorrows goals today. All that I have done before this moment is what lead me to be where Iam today, who Iam today. So tomorrow could change the fate of the rest of my life. In a good way I would presume. I want the call.

You Need To Visualize

They say you need to visualize what it is that you want in life. Well, here it is. I want to work for Anthropologie. I have for a while, and for the past few years been working on building my portfolio and style as a visual merchandiser and display artist for small business. I feel that it is time for me to become a part of something big, something that is part of the big picture. Become a member of a tight knit creative world where perfectionism is a godsend, and quirkiness is encouraged. So when I applied last week, I knew in my heart that this was where I wanted to be and that the hard work I have done will pay off. But you can still wish me luck on landing an interview for their open position :) 
   The second part of of getting where you want to be in life is immersing yourself in it. So this past week I went to 4 different Anthropologie stores. I went to look at and indulge in their displays, merchandise, vibe, and overall vibes. What I loved most is that though each store h…

Scentual Seduction pt 2

What happens when you add Natalie Portman, Sophia Coppala and Miss Dior Cherie? You end up with a 30 second masterpiece. I've never smelled this perfume  but I want it, especially if it means my life will be seen through rose colored glasses.

Dream of The 90s

The thought of the 90s coming back in Vogue has a few of you concerned. And rightfully so, I mean come on. Some of the things you wore were atrocious. 
But I'm having a moment. I need to just say that I'm obsessed with early/mid 90s fashion and I'm dying to get my hands on all the thrift store finds before you do! 
Take a look below at some 90s fashion nostalgia!
