Dreaming Of Denim Cutoff Shorts

And I am really excited that this rain will secede and make way for sun and temperature's in the near 60's this weekend.

It is almost barelegged weather.

A girl can dream.

A Sweet Summers Night on Hammer Hill

It has been stressville over here in Heartthrobs Central. There is the doom a gloom of a potential move to California. This would entail moving my business and starting over.

For real.

Or not and the implications of that including an in town move. (Side note, I HATE moving.)

I have been a ball of stress all week.

On the way home from my Thursday 7am networking meeting Jens Lekman came on my iPod.

I sang.
I car danced.
I smiled and felt relaxed for the first time in 10 days.

Plus there is the added bonus of thinking of what a babe Jens is.
Instant cure.

Fishtail Braid

So beautiful. My hair is almost long enough to braid again.

As soon as it is I am trying this. I used to be really jealous of girls in elementary school that had intricate braids. Fishtail braids always seemed so complex but they sound super easy.

How To:

• Divide the hair you want to braid into two equal sections.
• Start a fishtail braid by holding the right section with your right hand. Then, using your left hand, pick up a one-eighth-inch chunk of hair from the outside of the left section and cross it over to the inside of the right section.
• Repeat on the other side: Hold the left section in your left hand. Use your right hand to pick up a one-eighth-inch chunk of hair from the outer right section and cross it over to the inside of the left section.
• Continue picking up small sections and crossing them over until you reach the ends of your hair.
• Secure with an elastic.

And a video tutorial:

Mmm. Craving tones of peaches & cream.

Pizza Cone

Oddly compelling.

One time I tried to convince Jess to make me a pizza bowl so I could just eat the toppings.

She wouldn't.

Maybe I should have said Pizza Cones.

I highly recommend her.

Loss of Sleep

The first bird sounded at 5:38 am this morning.

I know. I was awake and unable to fall back to sleep because I was thinking about how to pattern and make this swimsuit.

Note to self: must not think about clothes when trying to sleep.

Off to the fabric store.

This tired brain cannot hold one single thought let alone a creative one that would allow me to push through this workday.


It has been sunny and warmish around Portland over the past week.

It makes me excited for wearing ballet flats, mini skirts and bare legs. So excited.

That said, I need a new pair of black flats. With super soft leather and flexible soles.

Like these beauties.

My desk feels like this to me today.

It is a huge, cumbersome task to even get in the chair.

I am sick and have deadlines. I want to lay in bed and watch project runway all day or look at my gigantic Harper's Bazaar that just arrived, chock full of inspiring spring fashion.

On another note, I love it when visuals accurately explain how you feel.

Let's Run Away

And visit a house next to the ocean.

The only house in the middle of a huge cliff.
Surrounded by green.

That is all.
I don't even care what we do there.
Let's just go.

Moth House

Coveting this simple, crystal necklace.

I think I am in serious need of some stone and chain.

Tomorrow, In a Year

I have had a ridiculous work week. Today I will be comforting my work day with more than 3 hours of sleep and the new electro-opera from The Knife. Here is the teaser release that I have been listening to all January.

So perfect.

Ok. Back to work.

Hotel Chain Upgrades

Two amazing remodels from the ordinary chain hoteliers Motel 6 with their Phoenix room design and Best Western with their Hotel Tomo in San Francisco.

It makes me want to travel on the cheap. Road Trip!

Edison light bulbs

For every light in my house. I would love to have them dangle over my dream dining room table.

Feeling a little combative.

Like these, these & these.

I think they will transition to dress season seamlessly.
