The Gun Show

You wouldn't think I'd be found at the gun show on a Saturday morning....but you'd be so so wrong!  I got up early, got coffee and headed to the Reno Gun Show and bought some new ammo for my love bullet necklaces! It was so fun to wander around and see all the huge guns and I even found a pink one :)

G is for Grateful...

These past few weeks in Arizona, I've had a lot to be grateful for. So it's so fitting that this morning at breakfast with my Mom and Aunt, this ring literally fell out of my Mom's purse and right in front of me...leaving me to try it on and keep it {it was originally my sister's...thanks sissy!} and now I can wear it {in this post as a thumb ring} and have a constant reminder to keep in mind what I've learned here. Thanks so much to my family for being so loving and understanding on this visit and always.

Bracelet Fanatic

If you haven't noticed lately.... I am obsessed with bracelets!!!! Of course I love semi-precious stones on a sturdy stretch band, but my new favorite is a foreign coin on leather. I am currently in the process of collecting fabulous materials, so stay tuned to see the next concoction. 
{And here are two I gave away to family, an Egyptian pound and a Mexican Peso}

Bracelet Workshop

 When my family came into town, I made them all beaded bracelets to remember their trip to Tahoe. I also loved personalizing their gift boxes, which I think adds so much sparkle to a simple gift. Anyways, all the ladies caught the beading bug and a trip to the bead store + many hours on the kitchen table with my Grammy.... and I feel officially in business! It's so much fun and I will be sure and snap some pics of these lovely girls in the jewelry!
{P.S. Here is what my night looks like! Beading with my Grams, happy life!}

Soludas and Stripes

 Here is me with our family friends that were visiting Tahoe this last week. I feel like a major Soludo ambassador lately because I cannot take mine off or stop raving about them... I even convinced my cousin to get a pair for her move to Kenya!

Om Moments

Some days I look at my white OM tattoo more than others ....tomorrow is going to be one of those days. So I wanted to share the photos of me getting my favorite tattoo. I was 22 years old and look how short my hair was! And I still have that Marilyn Monroe tee shirt.
{And here is the tattoo tonight, over the Sartorialist's book}

Today is windy

This is what I wore to take photos for my new etsy banner...maybe I will post more of the photos later on my photography blog :) As for now I am heading into Bella Vita Accessories in Tahoe City to give Natalie the owner a package of goodies including some Egyptian coin and bullet necklaces! So go shop there if you are in the area. I got my fab + sparkly bracelet that I am wearing today there for a very reasonable price! Have a Happy Hump Day!

Britney, je t'aime!

I love me some Britney Spears! Here is this amazing video I stumbled across on youtube. I don't know what's cooler: that he seamlessly mashes up two of her songs or how he looks like he, ummm, isn't a Britney fan. Had to share!
Good night Monday.

Le Love Bullets become MORE hardcore

I know, you thought a bullet necklace couldn't get ANYMORE in yo face and hard core. But it just did. Husband has been telling me he hates the chain I've been using and that I should buy my chain at the hardware store. It definitely took some convincing, but I finally checked out the chain at Swaggards Hardware and it's pretty cool. It's definitely a different look, but I like it. Plus it feels more sturdy! Thoughts?
{Above:gold, Below: silver and worn today}

mardi gras & le love bullet

 When Kelsen and I saw Lindsay Lohan's video on TMZ today we got so excited to see her in a bullet necklace! It's not mine, of course, but it looks like one I made for a friend, and sort of like the ones I added on my etsy site today. Have at it and Happy Fat Tuesday!

Mac + Manolos

Since I don't have a style post for the last two days, I thought I'd explain my blog header and background and why I think it embodies the spirit of this blog. I went to photography school at Brooks in Santa Barbara and I completely forget the assignment details, but it looks like some sort of advertisement class and this is what I shot. If I can remember correctly, I got an A :)... This is my friend Venessa. We got her make up done at Mac Makeup counter in the Nordstrom on State street and borrowed my aunt Mimi's Manolo heels! I posted my camera on a tripod and blasted the music! Then I digitally composed her in. This is the balcony of my apartment, those are my jeans shorts and yes we drank all of those bottles of champagne ourselves!

You know you're fabulous when...

Being fabulous is having fabulous friends. My friends are each and every one of them...more fabulous than the next! I've done a post {here} on my fab friend Jill and her shopping addiction, I've spoken about my friend Stef {here} and then I got a text from my friend Matthew {here's a post on him too!} that made me think of doing a "you know you're fabulous when" parte deux in honor of Matt. So here you have his text message and accompanied photo...

Me: Hey do you have any photos of Whitney in the COCK SUCKER tee shirt I got custom screen printed for her birthday?
Me: I need one :)
Matt: Haha.
Matt: No, I wish I did. I'd send it to you in a golden envelope.
Me: I'm going to reinvent that shirt for her and I. We were just talking about it and she lost it.
Me: And you. You want one too now don't you? ;)
Matt: Rad. New digs. When are you and Kelsen gonna visit? I'd let you two take over the master suite in my Brooklyn mega-loft.
Matt: Rustic Industrial Glamour.
Matt: And there's room for all (Mona too!)
Me: Dude is that a stack of Veuve? Spoiled bitch!
Matt: People know what I like. It's the base of my food pyramid.

And there you have it, fabulousness! Hope this made you laugh! Happy Thursday!

{and here is a rough mock up I did in Photoshop for the people curious about the shirt discussed above!}

You know you're fabulous when...

...these Sam Edelmans are on your fireplace mantel because they just arrived via shopbop! That's just how you roll if you're my friend Jill. And when you roll like me {with a Canon 30d with a 50mm f1/4 fixed lens in your purse} you can snap some pics of these pieces of art during an after work hang out session last night. Gotta love the beautiful lighting on these puppies, and the fact that they are just chillin in front of a bonzai tree? Love my friend Jill! Happy Wednesday everyone!
