I met Tarina Tarintino
I met Tarina Tarintino

* Enters my fangirl!!! *Squee* Last Friday night am artsy area of town (Riverside’s 5 points area) held a block party that they call First Fridays (held the 1st Friday of each month) and as a special treat one of the boutiques Edge City (where I’ve bought my quirky sunglasses and sparkley hair pins since I was 13) had a special guest.  Tarina Tarintino was there to promote her new collection.  I got to sneak in at the last minute thanks to the owner’s knowing me and allowing me to break the rules!  You had to have spent a certain amount prior to 5pm that day in order to get in to meet her and get her look book for free.  I got a look book and a photo with her.  Let me tell you how kind and genorous she is.  She was signing books out in the street at 10pm hungry and ready to get off her feet but was so genuinely sweet and floored by the crowd she drew….seriously people came all the way from Tampa to meet her.  She was gracious to everyone and loved the stores and the people in the area.  I need to post a scan of one of the pictures from the look book because it’s fabulous!

 

My new tattoo

My new tattoo

* A few weeks ago I got a new tattoo.  It’s my first color and also the first highly visible tattoo I have gotten as it’s about 6 inches above my wrist.  It has a heart hidden in it and stands for me and my husband as we are both fire signs.  At the end of the month we will celebrate 9 years of marriage.  He is my flame.  It felt good to get something that I feel so strong about. 

Full Moon energy!

Full Moon energy!

* Did you feel the full moon energy Sunday night/ Monday morning?  It looked beautiful and earlier in the night I wish I had snapped pictures with the clouds surrounding it!  It looked magical and created a wonderful night for me and my husband.

Things that Make My Heart Flutter – July 17th

Random Bits of Happy

*Craft day with my friend on Monday was a lot of fun.  I ended up with 4 pieces and with a little practice I’ll have something I not only am proud to wear but maybe even proud to sell.  Searching for the bits and pieces we used was fun too!  I can’t wait to get another craft day in order!

*Most of the rest of the week I was fighting being sick but it caused me to slow down and just take a little me time break.  I feel much better and am glad I didn’t let the sick creep in all the way!

*Late night whispers of our future.  These talks have been my saving grace.  When things are bad and the job search is so rotten, it helps to lay in the dark with his arms around me and whisper out our future that WILL be better!
