I’ve been crazy busy with all of my random ventures and seemingly different lives. In one of my lives I style musicians and help them find themselves. It’s a little like being a girlfriend without the perks. I love my job… Anyway, I always have an eye out for trends and pieces perfect for my clients. Bada bing bada boom, I found these gorgeous leather bags by Dean on Sunset Blvd. They fit the needs of one of my clients to a tee. He’s a musician, bass player, constantly on the road and has to look trendy while being comfortable. This isn’t an easy task. You’d be surprised how uncomfortable tour busses are.

These bags are 100% leather and made on sight. After a convo with an employee, who just finished hitch hiking from NoCal, I feel even deeper in love with these designs. I had my little peepers a few pieces that were spacious and durable, just the thing for the life of a jet setter.

Friendsgiving Dinner

I know, it’s not thanksgiving yet, but it seems like once all hallow’s eve ends Santa’s workshop heads into full swing. Well, my dear roomie and I love turkey and sweet potatoes way too much for that so we schedule a “friendsgiving” dinner every year. This friendsgiving I focused on my talents; decorating and cupcakes and she was the organizer and lead chef.

We ate, we socialized, we dealt with neighbors who wished they were here. Those are always the worst. But mostly I was happy about my table. I bought a ton of pumpkins, real and not so real, and painted them white and silver. A few pomegranate and acorns made their way in the mix.

About three coats in and I was just about done. I shaved the stalks down, to reduce possible phallic jokes, and set the stage with a wooden runner and silver chargers. I used normal paint and a brush…I’m not into spray paint, too messy. The project was pretty straight forward and I may replicate it on my actual Thanksgiving table.

Happy holidays and may all of your thanksgiving wishes come true.
