Old CDs

Remember these? It's amazing what you can find stashed away in your closet ten years later. These were my favorite. Well, I know what I'm going to be listening to for the next few weeks!

Never take your music for granted- you will look back one day and be surprised at how much you miss it when it isn't playing on the radio or your iPod...
then again, who knows what new musical technology will be created in the next ten years.

First day of the year with the Bear Shirt!

This bear shirt is amazing: soft, cute, funky...
My friends and I are continuously trading it around, and today, I have it!

Trading clothing is the best way to go, because you don't have to spend lots of money, you won't wear the same thing on the same day, and you can see how many different ways you can wear even just one item. Its good to have that flexibility with your wardrobe, (and your friends' wardrobes in this case) and, I must add, very easy and fun.

For Lookbook

Santa Barbara 2010

The Hippie Junk Van!!
We loved the Santa Barbara arts and crafts fair. So much fun, and so many crazy people we met! There were a few that we already knew from past trips, and boy were they happy to experiment on us with their products.
Pier dress-code.
This is just 1/3 of the shoes displayed at this Goodwill.

We found this cute consignment store in Santa Barbara with amazing clothes (from big designer labels).
It was a cute little shop, so sad there wasn't anything in my price range!
My mom and I built this 'beach home' when all of us went to the beach on the last day. It has a little driftwood 'bear' friend waiting at the door, a table and chairs, bowl art on the table, a couch with orange pillows, and what we decided would be wall art.
Oh, and don't forget the hanging lights and two windows on the far side!
A little grocery store where we bought some sandwiches on the way home.
Right by the little market is this amazing spiritual garden called The Sacred Space. Its 6 separate rooms and all of the surrounding space is filled with gorgeous statues and plants and rocks and water.
It was so overwhelming in real life because the whole area is so large and breathtakingly beautiful.
It was so cold outside I actually wore two of my dad's jackets over each other. (Why has this summer been colder than our winter?)
Oh, I love elephants so much. <3

So that was my trip to Santa Barbara/ Summerland. I'll be posting outfits on lookbook/ the blog soon.

Thanks to everyone who visits my blog!
love ya,

My lovely friend Kaitie is turning 16!!
She is the sweetest girl ever. So it is perfectly appropriate to call it her Sweet 16!
I had a fun time with the wrapping! :)
