oh, sweet heaven.

what a glorious day for handmade local goods, galore! i was so, incredibly happy walking through all the charming little booths and seeing vendors’ creativity and labor all packaged into a tiny necklace or wallet. the festivities boasted music, food trucks, and little indie photographers *squeal* not to mention, it was set up by a gorgeous bay in Long Beach and turned out to be a really beautiful day (it rained in the early morning, eek!). Quite simply, I was inundated with pure, sunny, delicious, peaceful, breathtaking, exhilarating… happiness.

moustaches are #1 trending this season!

these delicate wheel pieces are making me swoooooon..

you turn my reels. let’s get our mac on.

i like you a latte. you are my sewmate.

so in love with this concept! and loving the framing detail.

breathtaking. they were converted to magnets. i love these.

fried egg in a pan! hehe.

a barretteย  made out of a nest, eggs, a bird, and leaves. would love to wear this in my hair~

cupcake candles, yummy!

expensive prints that we liked but would’ve hurt our wallets to purchase…maybe next time

im noticing a lot of jewelry pieces are incorporating wire. saw some rings made out of wire with a gemstone set in the center. surprisingly elegant.

this festival attracted a lot of mommies.

simply amazing. i wonder where they get these trees?

one day i’ll grow my own herb garden

exquisite details.

made out of the pages of books

a boy peeing

had the best time with these girls โค

goodbye patchworks. their next show will be in santa ana!

i love supporting local vendors, especially if the goods are handmade and their profits support a higher cause! my purchases at the end of the day – hello kitty handpainted cookie (Shortnin Bread Bakery), a tin of 100% natural cool mint lip butter (Wisalya), and a green textured/velvet clutch (Vintage Remade). also some freebies: clove handmade soap sample, yelp lip balm, and clear lip gloss.

Dear Hopelessly in Love,

You’re all grown up now, aren’t you?

I can’t believe you’re falling in love right now and in a committed, “grown-up” relationship. It seriously is moving very fast – I get to see you every few months, and I’m so used to hearing how you’re out clubbing with your friends…It’s hard to fathom that you have a boyfriend/possible husband/”THE ONE” right now because I’ve only heard about him a few times. I’m happy for you though, and I hope that all these disagreements and fights will only serve to strengthen your relationship with him.

As far as going to grad school goes, PLEASE go. If you feel like that you need it for yourself, that’s certainly an indication that you should. The girl I know wouldn’t be a stay-at-home housewife catering to one man. You are the career-driven, successful, and ambitious woman that you have worked so hard to become!

I think it’s such a unique concept, how you need to learn not to be as independent as you have been the past few years, and get accustomed to the idea of being in a relationship considering he’s the real deal. I hadn’t thought of it like that…and I’m so happy that you have reached this crossroads in your life, since the choice you make is essentially building your bridge into “grown-uphood.” I know your life is changing right now, and with that, plans will change too.

But despite that, I am confident that you will not lose yourself along the way – that you will still be YOU, just this time, with a man on your arm;)

I miss you & stay safe. Oh, and yes, I love being single & carefree ๐Ÿ™‚

Your friend,

I’ve encountered a musical slump this past year –ย  no longer am I inspired by music & lyrics as I was so passionately before. I have forgotten how to go about discovering new music. Even when I am listening to the songs on my iPod, I don’t listen anymore. this really disturbs me. please give me a song title/artist/genre to help me get back up~ thanks.

button flower


crafted from 3 button pieces + foam piece + wire + green tape


my muse – kinda. I saw a button flower lying around the floor at home, and apparently, she had made it during Sabbath School. We actually made more but I thought one per pot would suffice ๐Ÿ™‚
