California Things

22 Sep

I have an album on Facebook called ‘California Things.’ I started it when I moved down here in June 2009 and I have posted photos to it here and there ever since. It’s a really fun album for me to go through- and the lame scrapbooker in me is now going to force you to go through it too!

So, in chronological order,

My Life:

Made the move to Pacific St.,

Went camping in Santa Barbara,

Saw Bon Iver at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery at sunrise,

Spent a lot of time on Venice Beach,

Got my first job and worked DTLA in the LA Times building,

Then, of course, had my torrid love affair with Ryan Gosling

Went to Disneyland during the Christmas season and acted like a child,

Then I met this guy and we went to  Santa Barbara. I was really sick and he made me go on a hike,

Then Newport Beach

And San Diego

My family visited once or twice,

I moved,

And celebrated another birthday,

The End.

Malibu Wines

15 Sep

In… 4 days… I am going to be 24 years OLD. Me and a few of my friends will be spending the afternoon wine tasting in Malibu at Malibu Wines!

I have never been but it sounds pretty great. Live music, good wine and great weather (forecast says 72 degrees!). Not a bad way to celebrate 🙂

Bottoms up!


Paper Source- Santa Monica, CA

15 Sep

A Paper Source just opened a block from my apartment. I am probably way too excited about this.

Let’s just say I will now be embossing just about anything I can get my hands on.

And spending a lot of money.

On paper.


Florence & The Machine- Heavy In Your Arms

14 Sep

Just in time for Halloween. I love this song and the video is kinda freaky. Don’t watch it alone.

MTV Video Music Awards- Usher

13 Sep

While I’m not actually watching the VMA’s (new place = no cable yet) we can all thank the internet for at least allowing me to catch the highlights. AKA the performances. Making my way through it now.

Anyway. Usher killed it.

Cool & now it’s not letting me embed. So click here!

Three cheers for Andrew Jackson!
