finally, friday

Pens from Muji. Love!
Uni from Hokkaido, so much splendor in my mouth
My new love, akamutsu. If you haven't had it yet, go get it. It's up there with toro, I think I might even like it better.
Swedish gummies found at Miette (if you haven't had Swedish gummies, they are on another level of gummy goodness... just so you know). They don't always carry these.. apparently they are "seasonal" so get them while you can!
My two favorites playing together at the park

Just a few of my favorite things pictured above. I'm going to start this new thing where every Friday accompanying my post will be a few snapshots from the week... so sorry ahead of time if they aren't the best quality photos, most of them will be from my phone. :) Have a lovely weekend people!

These geometric nests are everything. I want one!

A "hello" is just a "hello", isn't it? Yes, it is.

Super funny, and I'm finding is pretty true of your thirties.

Oh how I wish to be going somewhere where I can do this.

Now this is what I'm talking about, a zero waste grocery store to get rid of the plastic packaging. I would go if it was here in the States, would you?

That's right, another Glassybaby location and this time it's in the South Bay.

How gorgeous are these handmade wooden serving boards... too pretty!

I do think there's a lot of good stuff talked about in this article, mainly that we humans have neglected what we've been doing to the oceans for so long-- this doesn't just mean overfishing, but also pollutants.  While I do believe that certain populations and remote areas need to survive off hunting these creatures, it's gotten messed up by greedy humans that either don't realize what is happening, or they just don't care. And I'm not saying we should stop enjoying food, I'm just saying we should think more sustainably about it all so it can be enjoyed forever. I just hope we realize and make the necessary changes before it's all too late... or is it already?

Why is it that every song from Lady A is the best?

Remnant fabric from a trip to Portland a couple years back... oh how I love the colors!

Today I was reminded that things happen for a reason and even though things may not work out how you want, you gotta keep pressing onward. Here's to a relaxing, chill, but productive weekend!

I love that San Francisco is doing more to get to zero waste... donate those old clothes!

For all you brunch enthusiasts, there's a funny chart for almost every brunchy situation.

As a former owner of hamsters (I had three when I was in middle school), this was totally cute and brought back many a hamster adventure/memory.

You whiskey connoisseurs out there, can you tell the difference between small batch and big producers of whiskey?

When you think about hospital food here in the States you probably gag just a little, but other countries seem to fare just a bit better... and some probably just as bad, if not worse.

Bringin' it back old school. This was my jam.

Behind the scenes at the Minted photoshoot

Happy Friday folks! I've had a busy couple of weeks doing makeup gigs, but one that I'm particularly excited about is one with Minted. If you're not already familiar with the brand, they are an online stationery company (now they have prints, decor, and soon to launch material!) that sell a bunch of independent artists' work. I was asked to make up a few artists from their community for an ad shoot they're doing and it's really exciting! I'll be sure to share any news about the shoot and if it gets featured in any magazines. Anyway, it's past five-o'clock and that means it's the weekend, cheers!

Pretty soon we are gonna be farming everything.

Even though I don't eat meat, this steak looks amazing, especially when cooked over hot lava.

Next time you think about drinking out of that plastic bottle or littering on the street, think about this.

Hoping I can do some of this before it's gets way too cold.

Anybody out there tried the brand Aesop? I'm super interested in trying them out... recommendations welcome!
