New year, new posts

Wow I am such a slacker! The end of 2011 turned out to be a little turbulent. Nothing much to report so I was over playing on pinterest and tumblr. Inspiration pictures, quotes and videos go a long way :) Things right now are a little crazy but going good. 2012 is going to be fun, right? 

Here's some NYE highlights, because it's always my favorite and this year I had a really amazing night. I went to see Henry Clay People with my cousins and although I'd never listened to them it turned out to be SO GREAT! They played a set and towards midnight, they started playing a bunch of covers of everyones favorite songs like Don't Stop Believin' and When Doves Cry. Eventually they ended up pulling people onstage and all my friends and I were up there, singing and dancing. Perfect tone to start the year on and def a night to remember :) I love having a great show to go to on a holiday, no pressure, no fuss and makes it so much more special.

cheers to new years! :)

Wedding week!

Well, it's finally (!!) wedding week over at Zucchero Zucchero so I am going to share a couple of my pictures from the wedding of the year (move over Kimmy K!) It was truly the best wedding, the best party, the best crowd, (the best music!) I've ever been lucky to be a part of. I know my Hol worked really hard to put everything together and it was absolutely beautiful. Plus, her and her man have an amazing love between them. I was happy to be there to witness it :) 

The beautiful bride & I

Mr & Mrs! (and her signature drink)

Jon dancing with his mom, Holly with her dad

Fall '11 LUST LIST

I suck at blogging, yes, but who reads this anyway? 

My birthday is in a MONTH! WOW I'm getting old. I can't believe it. Time flies. So I'm digging up cool stuff and here's a few of my favorite things I just got, am being inspired by and buying... eeeks!

new moccasins from Target (!!!) I love them so much.

Just saw this cardigan in Cosmo.
 I have one like it, but it looks so COZY!

Snapped this at Buffalo Exchange in Long Beach.
Earring design? YES

Short lived awesome ring I picked up for $4 on clearance
 @ Urban Outfitters but lost :( I suck with jewelry!

UO arrow ring // 
I'm obsessed with anything Navajo/Mayan inspired and it warms my
heart to tell you that my boss is working on Aztec designs :)

This pistol is one of our casting parts at work,
I'm totally getting matching necklaces for my girls
(Black Keys 10 cent pistol anyone? ;)

I am also a sucker for novelty pieces. C'mon, how fun are these!
(also @ Urban) 

And who can resist a cute stache?? LOVE IT

...and I can't stop listening to Getting Paid by Zech's Marquise. They are ridiculously talented boys (3 younger brothers of Mars Volta's Omar Rodriguez Lopez) and this CD doesn't leave my car. Check them out please :)

so i wanted to redefine the blog again but found myself completely uninspired. it's been a hard couple of weeks! works been really a mix of highs and lows but i need to snap out of it and find what i love about being creative again. so i'm staring at bright colors, wearing lots of dresses, gonna do my nails pretty (i didn't even ever LIKE sparkles!) and getting ready to say goodbye to my favorite band ever, rx bandits. bitter bittersweet but it's going to be beautiful. i'll try to keep up with the blog, promise. here's my inspiration for the week :)

Where would we be.....

...without those wild nights?

Just wanted to give a little birthday shout out to my friend Marcello who edited this video for 311. Their 10th studio album UNIVERSAL PULSE was released yesterday, now on 311 records.
Good for them and good for M! Excited for the summer shows.

Can't wait to see all my friends.
