Daily Inspiration – Picnic Must-Haves

With Spring in full swing it’s the perfect time to have a picnic. I really don’t need much of an excuse to have one so there is that. Confession: we own two picnic baskets. I know that here in Lalaland we can have them year-round but there is no better time than Spring. I will be sharing some recipes from my archives for the perfect picnic tomorrow! For now take a look at must haves I came across last night. Do you love picnics too?

Daily Inspiration – The Color Run!

A couple of weeks ago I ran my first 5k with some friends from work (Hi guys!) Well, I walked, ran and had the time of my life getting messy. I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time (maybe you remember this similar post). If you ever get the chance to participate in The Color Run just do it! My one goal besides crossing the finish line was simply to get messy. Ok, who am I kidding, I just wanted to play with the colors. I had a blast and now I think I’ll do The Mud Run just to have another excuse to get dirty! Have you ran this too? What 5k do you recommend?

Daily Inspiration – Renegade Craft Fair

Last December we went to the famous Renegade Craft Fair with some friends. I’ve always wanted to go so it was a no brainer when Mary suggested the idea. The whole fair was a little craft village in the middle of L.A. In other words, heaven for me. It reminded me a little of Unique L.A. All the artists were super friendly and some of the work was extremely inspiring. I also saw some familiar faces like The Poster List. Always so nice to see them. The craft station was my favorite. I mean, who doesn’t like making their own gift wrap? At the end it was a fun day filled with handmade art and friendly doggies everywhere. Did I mention it was a whole family event? The three of us had a blast. If they stop by a city near you, don’t hesitate to go. You will love it! For the full list of artists simply click here.

Daily Inspiration – Vintage Paper Dolls

How amazing is it that for some girls these were their dolls.  As a little girl I inherited some toys from my mom; I still remember how magical it was to play with them. Rediscovering little things like this always makes me smile.

Aren’t these cute? Did you get to play with toys from your parents too?

Hope you smile!

Daily Inspiration – Ferris Wheel

Last weekend we pretended to be tourists for a day. Visiting the Santa Monica Pier was of course the perfect setting. My camera lens was most attracted to the Ferris wheel. The sky was gloomy which was fun to photograph on a summer day.

Do you like Ferris wheels too? Have you pretended to be a tourist in your town too?

Hope you smile.

Daily Inspiration – The happiest place on earth…

A couple months ago while my family was visiting from out of town, I spent a day acting like a little girl, having cotton candy and simply having a blast. Disney is the one place where no matter how old you are, there is something special for you to enjoy. I came across some pictures I took of the parade that day. I’ll be back there today so I thought it would be fitting to finally share them with you. Now excuse me while I put my Minnie ears on and go have some more cotton candy  fun.

Do you enjoy Disney too? What is your favorite memory?

Hope you smile!

Daily Inspiration – Friday’s Pick

Since the first time I heard this song I keep shouting out: “What do I stand for? What do I stand for?”. Yes, my boyfriend thinks I’m going crazy. I’m not sure what it is but Fun.’s ” Some Nights” makes me want to go get something done. Not sure what. I simply love songs like this. This band really knows what they’re doing. Check out more about them right here. The theme also works since we are around the corner from celebrating the 4th of July. Enjoy!

I told you! Isn’t this song awesome? Are you a fan too? What is your Friday pick?

Hope you smile!
