Wandering Uptown Whittier

Some days are just meant for wondering, don't you think so too? I don't have the luxury of dropping my full time job and traveling the world so instead I randomly go on what you might call day trips, er more like a couple hour trips to get my mind and body away from the norm of daily life. To me one of the most fun things is to find something new even if its a shop I found on Instagram  that is a 25 min drive away. I think it all goes back to our animal instincts of Hunter & Gatherer. 

I have been following this store Local Fixture on Instagram for quite some time. All of their pictures are so cute and the products they carry are some of my favorite brands! They have a great online presence and I was so pleased when I walked into the store to see that it is just as inviting to curious minds and the ambiance is inviting! Their entry table features Frasier Fir candles that smell like Christmas! 

If you love Voluspa candles they have every scent and their reasonably priced. …


Hi Ya'll its Friday so I have another fab roundup for you to get inspired for the holiday gifting season and maybe you'll find a favorite new inspirational Instagram account to follow as well! I love to support local business and passion projects because as you all know I have one myself. So grab a cup of coffee and get cozy because you dont want to miss these awesome IG accounts! 

For some reason I always seem to find things on the ground and I happened to find a business card for Lovely Charmed Finds in the parking lot of my mall. Her business cards feature a beautifully colorful feather and I instantly picked it up because feathers are a sign of guardian angels. Lovely charmed finds has car charms and keychains as well as ornaments and they can be custom designed. 

Flea style is one of those dreamy IG accounts that makes you want to travel and wear all your vintage clothing all at the same time! I originally started to follow her account because she has a creative retreat a…

Pretty Woman

When your boyfriend says out loud that he has a crush on 90's Richard Gere you know you can have at least one thing to agree on before you go back to thinking he's crazy and what not. And yes he is a bit crazy but I love that he can openly admire another man for his beauty and say "you know what I would do to him?" and I say "WHAT?" and he responds with "Shake his hand!" This is my life on a daily I have managed this long I dont know...probably because he's cute and thinks my mediocre cooking is amazing! So now that you know about the little backstory you can daydream about 90's Richard Gere with us, because lets face it, he was hot! And Julia Roberts too! 

Do you remember the first time you watched Pretty Woman? I remember watching it with my friend and her older sister. We got to watch and do a lot of things that older kids did because her sisters were nice enough to let us tag along. The parts that stood out to me the most w…

Flea Market Styling and Photo Shoot Inspirations

One of my favorite things to do once I source my items is to have a photo shoot! Photo shoots are a great way for me to practice styling my treasures for my next flea market and to showcase my items online. I sometimes notice a theme with my latest collection, sometimes its a color, print or texture. Lately I have lots of wicker, yellow turquoise and fuchsia. Bright colors make me happy and I'm drawn to them when I'm sourcing new pieces for my collection. 
Below is a glimpse into my growing collection of vintage and great second hand pieces I have recently discovered and listed on my online store. Take a look and feel inspired to decorate colorfully. 

Vegas Dress Shopping at Charlotte Russe

Earlier this month I went on a trip to Vegas which was amazing to say the least, but I was so concerned about what to wear I was going a little cookoo! I hadn't been to Las Vegas since I was 15 or so and I had no idea what to expect really. I just knew that people that usually go are drinking a lot and wearing close to nothing to the clubs! I was at my wits end trying to find a dress for our crazy Night club outing and I ended up walking into Charlotte Russe and thought what the heck so I tried on a few dresses. Can you guess which one I went home with?? Nuetral, sexy style.
Fun, bright and flirty.
Outerspace meets club girl.
Greek goddess. SO which one was your have? And which one do you think I picked?

Flea Market Finds

Hi guys! Its been a while since I last did a blog post, right? Well everything is going good for me, just been really busy working fulltime and doing my side business which is my online shop as well as flea marketing. I'm really happy that I got back into this because a few years ago I started and somehow just it feels really awesome to have my hobby that brings me some extra cash as well as a sense of creative freedom! Thank you for everyone who has ever bought something from me, supported my flea markets, like my pics on instagram or has been a follower of this blog, it's all very special to me, so thank you. I'm super excited to announce I will be at the Mercantile flea market Saturday Oct 1st!  I had taken a couple months off to start collecting again and I have an amazing little spread for ya'll! One of my favorite things to do once I collect merchandise to sell is have a little photo shoot to bring it all together and tell a story. The most recent ro…

Day Off Indulgences

I believe I deserve nice things and so do you! You work hard, spend 40 hrs a week on your feet and another 7 driving dealing with whatever life throws at indulge once in a while!  You're worth it! 

I think that my love language is a mix of 3 different styles: words of affirmation, gifts & of course time. Since I'm a Taurus I love to indulge, I think that is why I struggle with some things in my life including my fluctuating weight as well as spending too much money on coffee! With that said, I have lost quite a bit of weight, and I don't get coffee every day. The picture above is a collection of nice things I gave to myself as a gift...I had a crazy week at work so it was well deserved! 

This rose water chocolate from Mothers Market was crispy, tart and great for a sweet tooth! 

I picked up this cute little Gardenia scented mason jar candle from Celias Reloved! Find her on INstagram @Celiasreloved
I headed over to Trader Joes for some Vino...yum!
