Adieu and Hello

It was only yesterday when I started working the family- like, startup-like/fun environment of tobi.com.  I have since been given the opportunity to embark on a new journey and start working at bebe corp.!

So to tobi.com thanks for the wonderful experience, all the laughs and good times, I bid adieu…

To bebe corp., hello!

 

Cheers to life!

Fall for Layers

So I know that the official start of Fall is still about a month or so away, but I can’t wait for the season to arrive! It’s probably one of my most favorite seasons of the year, at least style wise, mainly due to the fact that it’s the perfect time to pile on those layers. If you know me, you know I’m all about my layers! Scarves over sweaters over dresses over tights all day everyday!

Something about…

 

Something about low or backless tops that makes me happy! I especially love the front beaded lines and low [enough to wear a bra] back on this sweater. For some reason it is this sweater and this $1 thirfted skirt that I tend to turn  with just about any piece of clothing  when all else fails and I’m running late on a Monday.

Split down the middle

I”m not sure about you guys, but my hair tends to have a mind of its own! On this particular day it decided to part itself and split in the middle. Kind of having mixed feelings about it (love/hate kinda deal), guess we’ll just have to see what it wants to do now up until I finally give up on my laziness and get a hair cut!

Playing in the city

Had some family from Seattle come to town the other week so I took the day off to play and galavant around the city! Although I’ve lived here my whole life, there’s something about playing tourist in your own town that’s always fun.  And living in SF there’s always something different or new to try or see! Here are some quick snaps from that day.

Have a wonderful weekend friends!

The few the proud…

It’s crazy how fast the past two weeks have gone by. From his surprise arrival straight from the desert to all the sleepless nights, all the laughter, alcohol consumption, good times and bad this guy always breaks tears with his departures.

What’s more heart breaking is to think that instead of heading back to another base safe and sound to do his job…

he’s off to fight for our country.

It’s only been a few days and without his presence the house feels  much emptier and quieter. I miss you kubs ❤ take care and thanks for helping to defend our country.

I’ll be thinking and praying for your safe arrival back home.

Let’s bring our troops home.

 

Recap: Outside Lands Festival 2012 – Day 2

Hey there folks! Here’s the second installment of my recap for Outside Lands. With the first day jitters out of the way, by the time day 2 came along, we were practically pro’s maneuvering our way around the Park and getting the timing down for sets.

I figured Saturday would be our longest day, so it would be best to bust out with thee best outfit I had planned, maxi skirt and all.

Started the second day off with Geographer at the Twin Peaks stage. Their set was a great way to start off the day, as the sun came to peek out during their performance. It’s crazy to see how far the band has come. I remember when I first interviewed them for the CW when they were but a wee up-and-coming band. Now they’re selling out shows and playing the big stage at Outside Lands! I must say…Geographer really stepped their game up!

Next to the Foo Fighters, I would say the Alabama Shakes put on one of the most kick-ass performances of the weekend. Lead singer Brittany Howard is a force to be reckoned with!  Her voice was heart-achingly awe-inspiring, and you could just feel the emotion poring out of her with every breath.  I was totally blown away by the band’s performance. Definitely a pleasant surprise.

Things got rather loud and rambunctious towards the end of the day. Caught a bit of Passion Pit’s set. They were super fun! Also, got to do some dancing out at the Heineken DJ Dome with Saves The Robot on the turntables. Never thought I would have as much fun as I did at the dome.

Our Saturday came to a close as Metallica took the stage. It was pretty much over once they began to play. The band just absolutely killed it. Holy crap were they LOUD! We were barely half way towards our way to the stage when there was just this huggge wall of sound. Flames and pyrotechnics were going off everywhere. Totally insane! Gotta love Metallica. \m/

Recap: Outside Lands Festival 2012 – Day 1

Outside Lands Festival has came and went, and this year’s show was nothing less than legendary! To summarize all of what happened in one post would be an injustice to the event, so I will divulge the deets in separate installments.

Day 1 was pretty darn exciting, and we were able to cover a whole bunch of ground! Kicked off the day with some Tanlines (the band, not the actual thing…thank goodness I did not get sunburned like in previous years haha). Got to sneak in a special acoustic set from Geographer.  We headed towards the front of the main stage for Beck, and I was absolutely ecstatic that he played “Lost Cause.”

Probably the best performance of the day (arguably the entire festival) came in the form of the Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl is a beast! They played their hits, as well as some b-sides, and ended with “Everlong”.  I could’ve died happy at that moment right there. 🙂

The day culminated with some Justice and, of course, we just had to end it with the man, the myth, the legend that is Neil Frickin’ Young!

Vineyard hopping

At the ripe age of  25 26 , I find myself enjoying wine over hard liquor.
