I just finished this little lady today! Now I am free to pack up my sewing desk! What do you all think of Miss Lola?

Today is my second day being unemployed. It's ok for right now! I went and had my hair done. I just got the norm, but it feels nice to have all the dead ends off and new color. Here's a picture before my appointment! I was excited to wear these turquoise shorts! They were actually jeans that had been sitting in my closet for a while, so I decided they needed to be turned into shorts since it was burning hot outside.

How is everybody's week going so far? Everyone staying out of the heat? I have so much packing to do since Chris and I are moving to the DC area this weekend!

living proof

When it comes to hair products, especially hairspray, I'm the person to come to. I've only had two favorite hairsprays in the last five years and now I have found my third favorite. I give you Living Proof Hold Flexible Hairspray! It's never stiff, protects against humidity, fights the frizzies, and has a great hold. This super awesome Living Proof spray will now be replacing my beloved Pureology hairspray.

My favorite 3.

1. Living Proof Hold Flexible Hairspray

2. Pureology InCharge Plus Hairspray

3. Big Sexy Spray and Play Harder Hairspray

Since I'm on the subject, I'm getting my hair done tomorrow and I have no idea what I want to do! Danggg. I guess we will see!

date night

So yesterday was my last day of work. Apparently, when you are leaving a company you have been with for a while they like to shower you with plants! My boyfriend is like "Where are all these plants coming from?!" So, my tiny collection has expanded quite a bit! Yay!

On another note, I've decided to start a lookbook. Let's see how this goes over.

[of course I gotta take one with Aida]

I treated myself to some whoopie pies for all my hard work these past few weeks! Yum! Unfortunately, there is still this never ending pile of work that needs to be done. Bummer. Atleast I have whoopie pies to put smiles on my face until this work dies down.

Oh! I almost forgot! Here are some pictures Chris took of me that I haven't posted on here yet. I thought that maybe you all might want to take a look too!

Meet Clops!

Clops is finally here! I think he is probably one of my favorites out of all the plushes I've made. What do you guys think? Now that he is finished this means I have 2 more plushes to make and then I can start packing to move into our new place! [spoiler alert! haha] I have way too much to do by the end of June!

The other day I was having music flashbacks and I really wanted to listen to this soul/electronica group called Owusu & Hannibal. I first heard about them a few years ago on a sample cd from Ubiquity Records and I loved them! Well, I searched here and there and I found their myspace page that sadly only lets you play one song and it wasn't exactly the song I was looking for. I continued my search over at lastfm and I had the same misfortune there. After my unsuccessful search, I found out that Robin Hannibal is now working with the very talented Coco in a group called Quadron. You should definitely check them out. They work very well together musically. I posted two videos below because I couldn't decide which one I actually liked better! Enjoy!

work in progress

I'm in the middle of giving birth to this guy right here. Hopefully sometime this week I'll be able to add teeth and stuff him all up!

new addition

The "green thumb" continues! Look at my new addition to my little indoor garden. I heard Lucky Bamboo was pretty easy to take care of, so I snatched this up when I saw this little thing was only 6 bucks. Does anyone know any other good and easy house plants to add to my tiny collection?

This is the only picture that stood out to me in this edi, but I wanted to post it because it's just gorgeous. She looks kind of like a Greek Goddess! Wouldn't you agree?

On another note...I just put my two weeks in today at my current job. This is the beginning to that fresh start I was sorta telling you all about!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

laying around

Here is a picture the boyfriend and I decided to take after work yesterday. I really like the tones, colors, and simplicity of it. What do you think? I hope everyone is having a great week!

P.S. I went and looked at 2 rolls of negatives yesterday. I should have some lomo for you all soon.

the honey trees

This is what I have been listening to lately. She has such a lovely voice. This is my favorite from their EP. Give it a listen.

This week I have had sort of a green thumb. Yesterday, I decided to buy a lovely jade plant. Then on Wednesday, my friend, Lara, came over to show me how to make terrariums. Here are some pictures!

[do you see the heart shaped leaf in there?]

Here is the terrarium I made with Lara. I planted strawberry clover and asylum in mine. I can't wait for it to sprout! I keep checking it almost every hour to see if it somehow magically grew already.

These I have had for quite some time. I snip off a bit of plant and put them in empty diffuser bottles with water. I just started that little one in the middle last week.
