Enjoy your week!
The weather is warming up here in the Bay and I thought this was a great song for that spring time/summer time feeling. The video reminds me of hanging with my crew when I was younger. I love the idea of going on group date! It feels so innocent and young :)
Enjoy your week!
I am so grateful for all the great press the shop is receiving. Today Oakland Local published Heading East: Part 1 and we were featured! I am so proud of the shop and for everyone who has supported us for 3 years. I stood outside today in the sun because it was so beautiful in Oakland. I closed my eyes, put my hand on my heart and absorbed the love and support that surrounds me.
At first seeing the same pose made me laugh because I thought I was being silly. I didn't see the power in the photo until I saw this video. I pretty much cried my eyes out. I hope that you enjoy the video because it's how I try to live my life.
I am Wonder Woman & I am powerful!
I love discovering new music...at least new music to me.
I've been meeting so many new people and that helps to be introduced to new things, especially music.
If we all had background music playing for us as we entered any space I would want La Luz to be playing as my intro song. I love everything about this band...all ladies, 60's nostalgia, that voice, the keyboard and guitar are some of my favorite things.
I am crossing my fingers hoping that they will return to the Bay area to play another show.
Enjoy your day and the music!
I am realizing that we are all connected as humans and we all have shared experiences. (I could go deep but I will let the song do the talking.) The universe has been sending me signs and people to remind me of this.
This is how I've been feeling lately and why not have a music video that is showing that feeling perfectly. This is my anthem this week. I hope you enjoy it :)
I want to take a moment from my day to honor the shop because I hardly ever allow myself to absorb the goodness that people are sharing with me. I sometimes dwell on the negative things that people are saying and I think that is my reality when I am actually surrounded by so much beauty and love.
Two people came in the shop today (I've only been open about 2 hours so far) saying how much they love it! They both said how happy they were for me that the shop has been open 3 years now! One woman, Sandi even made me stop for a moment so I could have a proud moment. She said, "Girl this is badass! You are woman who has her own shop and you have been open 3 years. You should be very proud of yourself. You are living the dream." Sandi is a rep for a fashion brand distributed out of Macy's and she is a visual merchandiser. She loves the way the shop is merchandised, she said she can see the story I am trying to tell.
Good grief Charlie Brown! I almost cried. We are our worse critic and my little critic can be pretty brutal and ruthless. So I am trying to live by this one drop rule, it's when someone says something nice to me about anything, my outfit, the work I do, the shop...and I have to at least allow one drop of it to enter my heart.
I worry so much about the minor details that I don't see the big picture sometimes. I am proud of myself and all that I have learned and accomplished
Look at this good looking man! His name is Abel Tesfaye better known as The Weeknd. This song has been the soundtrack of my week. "Wicked Games"
I am really loving this song right now so I hope you enjoy it.
(The videos ususally work but this one is a vevo video so it will take one extra step to get to it. The link is below. I included a dubstep version of the song for fun.)
Check out what I wore this week! Last week I was feeling kind of down and home sick so this week's outfit inspiration was to wear things that were comforting to me. I mainly wanted to feel comfortable and hugged by my clothes.
What inspired your outfits this week?
I treated myself to a new journal so that I can jot down my thoughts. I'm sort of anti-Valentine's Day so no candlelit nothing happening here. Marion and Rose's Workshop in Old Oakland is the best place to buy gifts for yourself or for others. I also got the cutest cards with my favorite imagery...unicorns and mermaids :)
I had to defend my love of Cat Power this week to a pretentious music snob. I love her and this song...it's the greatest! I hope you love it as much as I do! #alltimefavoritesong
ps. nothing can beat a music video of grandmas bowling!
