Pic Update

As usual my life has been crazy busy and I won’t get into all the details of work, yoga, bible study, friends wedding…. just know I miss blogging and I am going to make it a point in these busy times to at least give you guys a few pics or something! So here are a few to hold you over till next time.

First was Diana’s Bachelorette party, we went wine tasting in temecula, and I loe this picture because it shows how different everyone style is, love it! Missed Nicole that day but she was up in Nor Cal for a wedding… boo.

Diana's Bachelorette

I’m the one in the bright pink, incase yopu forgot what I looked like in my absence…lol

I wore a shirt from who knows where, (which I love and you will see more of soon), Bandage skirt from “No Rest for Bridget” ( little boutique at Bella Terra in Huntington Beach), a vintage gold belt, and my “knock-off Marnis” (at least that’s what I like to call them) from GoJane.

 

Next is a pic from our friend Denise’s 1980’s Bday bash… I however did not dress up (which is totally unlike me, if you know me at all) because my hubby and I fell asleep at 730pm and woke up to a bunch of missed calls and texts… so we pulled ourselves out of bed to join in the fun for a bit.

Nance 80s Party

Striped tank from FV21 knock-off outlet, highwaisted shorts from H&M (you’ll see more of these soon as well, I’m in love), Oversized jean jacket borrowed from Nicole’s BF, and purse from H&M.

 

More to come soon, I have a rehearsal dinner tonight and a wedding on Saturday, so I’m sure pics will be coming. Plus both my outfits are super cute so I will force someone to ake pictures if I must.. haha

Till later!

Long…..

Once again my week has been a bit crazy… I can think of like ten things I should be doing right now… Oh well!

The rundown of Memorial weekend:

We celebrated my step-moms birthday Saturday night, HUGE party with a band, dancing, taco bar, bartender and just having a grand ol’ time. The next day was the “relaxing by the pool BBQ” with volleyball and plenty of  beer and sunbathing. I took the most amazing nap from like 4:30 to 6, just lying in the sun.

Monday was Nicole’s birthday, I got her THIS.

Forever 21 has THE GREATEST “american apparel esque” tees right now… I bought four! I also bought a floral skirt and a ring but guess what! I dropped my bag at dairy queen!!!!!! It is gone forever! I was and still am SO bummed! I decided I’m going back cuz I need those tees, and at $5 each I’m going to get one in every color!

That night we saw Star Trek, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, at one point my hubby was actually on the edge of his seat leaning forward with his chin on his hands… adorable. He’s a trekky and he didn’t even know it. Anyway, I really recommend it…

One more thing, I finally DIYed a shredded shirt, and finished it. It only took me two hours! I’m wearing it in the pics below except I can’t find the pic of the back. I will update with it later.

 

It was a great weekend, can’t wait to get off work and start the next one!

Post Update

I just went back and updated THIS POST, because I realized I gave you all the wrong link to my friend Graham’s travel blog.

Remember, he’s the one cycling frm Los Angeles to Argentina for 7 months, he’s already in Ensenada Mexico! I’m so glad that he, and his bike, got through TJ safely…

Check out his blog HERE.

If I have a little boy, I’m gonna dress him just like this! Or a girl for that matter…

From Garance Dore or Satorialist, I can't remember...

This picture has inspired me so much, not the smoking really, but this was when I really embraced high waisted skirts… Love it.  I must find a floral skirt! Flea Market here I come!

Prom and 1/2 of mother’s day

A little late but here are some pics from Mother’s Day weekend. Chelsie, one of my sisters, went to prom so Saturday evening consisted of getting her all ready to go. Then on Sunday I stayed on at my dad’s house for the first half of Mother’s day.

I say the “first half” because I have my mom(Kristy) and my step mom (Berta). The “first half” was with Berta and that evening I made dinner for my mom(Kristy) and step dad (I got no pictures of the “second half” because I suck like that…)

 

P.S. This is gonna be a super long post…(eesh took me all day, taking breaks from work)

 

So here’s Chelsie, “Chels” for short…

A Brit & an Earthquake

I had such a great weekend!

Kenny (The Hubby) started life guarding this weekend, I’m almost as excited as he is. I love L.G. season, the camaraderie and the weekend trips to Catalina Island… such fun is in store.

While at the beach on Saturday with some family and friends I overheard a man asking if there was anywhere he could pitch a tent for the night. I interupted and said he should ask my husband at the L.G. tower. Well long story short, after talking wih him for a while we asked him if he would like to stay at our house for the night.

I know this may sound crazy, but well, that’s just us I guess. He had a bicycle all set up with saddle bags, and after some hours of sitting on the beach we discovered that his plan was to cycle from Los Angeles to Argentina over the next 7 months. He had just flown in from England the night before. His name is Graham Rush and you can follow him on his journey HERE. He’s also trying to raise money for unicef and you can see all the info on his Travel Blog.

He’ll be blogging about his experiences as often as he can get to a place with internet. He is an amazing guy and I’m so glad that Kenny and I had a chance to get to know him.

He ended up staying with us the whole weekend, and we had a blast just talking, shopping for a new camera, playing beach volleyball with my friends and then BBQing at our house last night.

 

HAHA I was so excited to write about Graham I almost for got to talk about the second part of my title(above). We had a CRAZY earthquake last night. It was so funny because Graham had never experienced one, at least not one like this. We thought it was quite fitting that it happened while he was still in CA. We even all took a picture(which I’ll have posted shortly) standing in one of the doorframes of my apartment.

 

Good luck on your amazing journey Graham, you’ll be in our thoughts and Prayers!

Don’t forget to check out his site HERE!

Fashion Planet…

Tavi over at STYLE ROOKIE posted this great assignment she’s working on for school. It was so much fun that I decided to post my answers that I sent her, here on my blog.

 

Her assignment for us was to match a list of designer lines(which she supplied pictures of) to the planets in the system. I’ll put together my list with pics of the line and planet that go with it. So much fun!! Thanks again Tavi! Anything to give me a break from work… 😉

 

Mercury Alessandro Dell Hottest planet, I would want to wear something from this line, light and airy feel. Plus this color blue always reminds me of hot days and staying cool.
Mercury
 
Venus – Erdem – Venus was named for the Goddess of love and the only planet to have a female name. I think this line suits it perfectly, very romantic and feminine, plus the light colors, again, make me think cooling thoughts for such a hot planet.
Venus
 
Earth – Hussein ChalayanThe colors and patterns of this line are very earthy to me, the liquid-like movement of the fabric. Reminds me of earth wind and water.
Earth
 
Mars Prada – Mars was named for the God of war, I think this line was one of the easiest for me to place. I feel like this line is very aggressive, even the expressions of the models and added red hues. Perfect for Mars.
Mars
Jupiter Alexander McQueenJupiter was named for the king of the Gods, it is the largest planet in the system. It is also gaseous and is known for it’s big red spot. I really played up the red with this one, also the words “Go Big or Go Home” come to mind and I feel like this line definitely captures that feeling. Even the way these pieces lay make me think of helium.
Jupiter
SaturnChristopher KaneObvious choice I thought. The structure and lines immediately made me think of Saturn. 
Saturn
Uranus Comme Des Garcons – Another “gassy planet”, it’s also considered to be “sideways” and very cold. This line fits here because of the dark leather, makes me think cold and rigid, but the wigs play on the gas. The cut of these pieces even makes me think “sidways”.
Uranus
Neptune – Rodarte – Another cold one, but this time I think of the fact that this is the farthest planet out. At least with this line I find the leather leggings and scarves would definately keep me warm, and also the colors are relaxing, peaceful. I love the fit and futuristic look, I think it has a very futuristic appeal.
Neptune
Would you have done any differently? Why? Love to hear what you think… Happy Thursday!
