happy weekend + the oscar goes to...

/ Fri, February 24, 2012


I'm so excited for the Oscars on Sunday! Will you be watching? Kathleen of Twig & Thistle is the queen when it comes to putting together DIY Oscar Parties, and the one for this year is so classy. All the details are perfect. And look, she even created paper statuettes. So fun!

I always tell myself that one day I will throw my own Oscar party if and when I have the space. For now, a couch, pillow, and this furry friend will have to do. Enjoy the weekend guys!

san francisco through polaroids

/ Mon, February 20, 2012


A few weeks ago, a couple of my friends and I spent a glorious and sun-filled weekend in San Francisco. I had been keeping a small stash of original Polaroid film in my fridge since the day I found out they were no longer in production, and promised myself that I would use these precious packs of film sparingly. Well, after three plus years, I was finally down to my last two packs (just 20 exposures!) and decided to splurge.

One of my favorite things about San Francisco is that they have a huge food scene. I mean, don't get me wrong, Seattle is pretty up there with eateries, but it's more of a slow and steady culture. SF kind of engulfs you right off the bat and gives it to you in one big blow. So you can pretty much guess what my friends and I did all weekend. We ate (Fisherman's Wharf)...and ate (Ferry Plaza Farmers Market)...and ate (Smitten Ice Cream). I also got to meet the lovely Mindy, and we bonded over lunch at The Slanted Door.


We rented a car and drove quite a bit. It wasn't fun being stuck in traffic, or having to pay toll, but hey, it sure made us feel like locals. And I have to say, these photos are a little bittersweet to look at. Bitter because it means no more 10-pack, original Polaroid instant film, but sweet because I couldn't have thought of a better trip to use it on.

Love the front of this dress, and the back of this one from Need Supply Co. And the colors...swoon!
