Take Five Aspirin and Call Me in the Morning

Reveal skin with DIY skin treatments
Last week I wrote about my guilt associated with wasteful beauty product packaging. Since then (whoa – an entire week) I’ve tried to be mindful about what I buy rather than mindlessly consuming. I’m a beauty junkie – I like having the newest, sexiest products, with their life-changing, radiance-boosting claims. [...]

When you get a lovely fever…

Do you get spring fever? I sure do. I get it big time. Mostly it’s a mentality that I better get outside and start picnicking under cherry blossoms and sunshine. To dress up in my girliest clothes and giggle, and feel wonderful.
Clara Larrea, a young fashion designer, has put together a lovely collection of  [...]

Virtual treasures : Sonny Sonny Sonny

There are some blogs that make me wish it was appropriate to just redirect their content on to my page. That should be ok? Right? Haha… It’s not ok. But I do want to take a second to talk about Sonny Vandevelde, who I’ve mentioned before, who supplies all the great back stage pics on [...]

Sunday Pixel Brunch : Blonde Redhead

The misnomer here is that none of the band members are either blonde or a redhead, but the New York trio of Blonde Redhead makes some really nice Sunday morning music…

Moving Sale : Saturday

If you’re in San Francisco… stop by and meet me, I’ll be having a moving sale in front of my building. I tried to do the eBay thing, and as easy as it was, I still had a difficult time getting everything together and mailing… etc.
So I’ll have a lot of my wares,  things I [...]

Why, I Otte..

Finding shoppes online is easy, finding good ones? Not so easy. Finding ones that inspire, even tougher. Lately, I’ve been going through some what of a challenge trying to determine how to cultivate my personal style. I’m not really sure how to articulate what has been bothering me lately, perhaps because I’ve gained weight and [...]

Today’s Attire : Black Friday

Most days are about comfort and simplicity. There are days when I feel up to the challenge of choosing fashion over comfort, but today isn’t one of them. I’ve gone for the most basic of colors, black, and the simplest of textiles, cotton jersey.
Last night Rocky and I had dinner at Pagolac with a long [...]

Today’s Attire : Chinatown

Everyday I walk through Chinatown on my way to work, the landscape of my daily journeys, the Cathedral, the cable car, the hills, Chinatown. I tried the iPod thing for a while, but I kept missing things and getting caught up in my own head. The daily walk is kind of my meditation, when I [...]

Today’s Attire : Millennial Scarlett…

It’s all coming down to the wire these days. I’m moving out of my apartment in 10 days. Leaving the country in a few weeks. Trying to get everything together is tough, being as barely anything is done. The weak dollar means I have to try to stock up on things I need before I [...]

Wearing the crowns of the ancients

The feather headdress. Perhaps it was a trend that happened over the last summer, and maybe, it’s been done, who knows? Perhaps it’s because of my disconnected Native American roots, my mother is from the Squaxin Island Tribe but adopted into a white family. And I’ve done very little to become connected to my roots [...]
