Daily Inspiration – Little suitcase

Last weekend we made a little trip to our favorite spot in the city, the flea market! I have tons of pictures to come, but had to share this one with you guys now. This little suitcase stole my heart. Unfortunately I didn’t bring it home. I know, it makes me sad every time I see it. I’ve been wanting a suitcase and this one was the perfect size. There is something about it that gets me. The size, the little details, the button. I wish I would’ve bought it. You know how much I enjoy taking pictures at the Flea Market as seen (here, here & here) so more pictures will be coming your way soon.

Do you enjoy going to flea markets too? Do you like miniature things?

Hope you smile!

Daily Inspiration – Outdoors Movie Night!

With the Oscars around the corner all I can think about is movies. Since I was a little girl I’ve always enjoyed watching them. The day I have a backyard I’m doing this to celebrate. Enough said.

Love love love!

Clever!

Love this table.

Simply amazing!

You can find more about this awesome movie night right here. I can’t wait to have a backyard just to have a movie night like this. Such a neat idea. Are you excited for the Oscars? Do you enjoy them too? Do you care more about the winners or the red carpet?

Hope you smile!

Daily Inspiration – Cassettes!

Who can remember making their own mix tapes? Or trying to record a song from the radio on your cassette so you could enjoy it later on your walk-man? Who can even remember their walk-man? I do! I do! I grew up with my parents old stereo in my room and loved every minute of it. There is nothing like being a kid, listening to your favorite songs while jumping on your bed holding whatever you could find as your mic! I mean, who didn’t do that? Or at least, who can admit to doing that? I do! I do! There is no shame on that haha Anyways, cassettes to me are nostalgic. Even tough nowadays they could be useless on any car or radio I still find them awesome. I guess I feel a bit old when I can remember something some people haven’t even used for the first time. Oh memories…

Cool print

Love this Etsy print!

Awesome iphone case!

How creative?

Doesn't this makes you feel a bit nostalgic?

Did you get a chance to even have cassettes? Did you make mix tapes too? Did you jump on your bed too? haha

Hope you smile!

Did you fall in love with these too? Or am I just crazy? What other shops do you like?

Hope you get inspired!

Daily Inspiration – Unique L.A

What a fun event! Unique L.A is a great place where local artists get a chance to show off their talent, creativity and unique products. You get the chance to meet all the artists personally while admiring their awesome work. From jewelry, to art pieces to yummy cupcakes, everything will get your attention. We had lots of fun, I of course took tons of pictures and left super inspired. I really love any event that gives local artists the chance to shine, and best of all, part of ticket sales goes to the local non-profit organization 826LA. I even got a chance to do a little DIY on the spot. Super cute match boxes with a secret message inside. So much fun!  I even snapped a picture of the creator Sonja Rasula. For more info visit their site here.

It was really a great day, great atmosphere and talent! Have you been to Unique L.A.? What other creative events do you like to attend?

Hope you get inspired!

Inspiration Nook Cravings – Sugar Cookies…

Valentines came and went so fast. I know I’m a day late or two but who is counting? I decided to surprise my love and bake him some special Valentines cookies. I was brave enough to make them from scratch, which means making them without pre-made cookie dough! If you know me, that’s a big step. Anyways, I made little hearts, big hearts, lots of hearts and they came out great! The only bad thing that happened… was me burning my finger as I was taking them out of the oven… big success. Hey, I didn’t messed up the recipe so that on my book is a win!. I even made our own frosting which came out amazingly good. Glad I let him convince me to not use the pre-made one I bough as a backup. I made this cookies from a family recipe I promised to keep safe, you can find the recipe for the cookies here and for the frosting here.

Are you still enjoying Valentines sweets? Do you make your own cookies often? Any recipes you would like to share?

Disclaimer: Big THANK YOU to Debbie for the inspiration!

Daily Inspiration – Love “Hoo” You Are.

I felt like ending this week with a positive message. In between breaks from my super busy schedule lately, I’ve been day dreaming a lot. Is one of my favorite things to do to relax and take it all in. I know I might sound crazy by saying that. By now you should now I am a bit crazy. I can’t believe January is over, that is almost Valentines day and that we are already enjoying 2012. Anyhow, you should love who you are, no matter the season, the year or the day. I’m going to keep reminding myself this same thing everyday. Random? I know. Hope you guys find this helpful too. Happy Friday!

Print from Jessica Rose’s Etsy shop found here

Do you daydream too? Are you ready for Valentines day? Can you believe we are in mid-February?

Hope you smile!
