Hello lovelies!!! I wish that I had something thoughtful to say, but I'm outta here!! I will try to do a few quick posts if I can, but if not I will be back in a few weeks! First date with two different countries and most excited about the amazing friends I get to see. xx.L
Escaping SF for a quick trip up to Tahoe tomorrow to visit my olds! If anything, hopefully I will get the chance to lay around at the beach and if I could look even partially as cute as my Grandma, then I will be satisfied! xx.L
A little somethin' to start your thursday with! xx.L
Ssssh don't tell anyone, but guess what came in the mail today? Yep. Mmmm Hmmm. My second Cole of California Scandal Suit. This time in the tiger print with not only the mesh panel down the front, but the sides too....jealous? I know. Its a good one. Over so many years I have collected some seriously awesome suits (I'll post em all up tomorrow) but it was always a hope that I would find one of these babies...and within one month I have managed to get my filthy paws on not only one, but two! First the leopard and now the tiger - cept the leopard is the much less scandalous of the two with only the mesh panel down the front. If I get the guts to actually model these suits (whiskey shot may be a pre-requesite to that shoot), you will see. I think "scandal" is an understatement...there is all sorts of skin exposed in that tiger number...
On that note, it may be a contender for next years viva pool party! xx.L
Coolest pair to have amassed so far....carved atomic tomato red painted gold glitter...hello, nurse?! Will go so well with my gold lame bathing suit..xx.L
Two weeks until my big trip! Beyond ecstatic, completely overjoyed, totally already packed my suitcase, a bit nervous about sitting still on that flight & simply cannot wait to get a hug like this from one of my favorites...This is what life is about, right? Making opportunities happen so you can hang out & have a dance with your favorite people. Hope the world is ready, I am coming with a suitcase packed full of smiles, laughs & tons of kisses. xx.L
"Never love a wild thing, Mr. Bell, ' Holly advised him. 'That was Doc's mistake. He was always lugging home wild things. A hawk with a hurt wing. One time it was a full-grown bobcat with a broken leg. But you can't give your heart to a wild thing: the more you do, the stronger they get. Until they're strong enough to run into the woods. Or fly into a tree. Then a taller tree. Then the sky. That's how you'll end up, Mr. Bell. If you let yourself love a wild thing. You'll end up looking at the sky. " -Truman Capote
I got so much more than a girl could ever ask for this birthday. Having the best friends in the world, the most amazing family and the most wonderful man in my life... a huge thank you for everything you all have ever done for me. You all really know how to make a girl feel special!
On to another year! Hope it keeps getting better and better...
Tomorrow it is my birthday & instead of the usual routine - going over to North Beach to Jacqueline's for the most amazing lime or strawberry souffles in the world as the girls & I usually do for each other's birthday, we are having a photo shoot! The girls are going to help me out with re-shooting my goodie-goodie gum drops collection (phew, finally!) and hopefully I will have the new images up within the week. Expect for lots of soft lighting, pastel colors, cakes & cookies & rosettes in green, pink and chocolate as well as a bunch of my beautiful friends drinking champagne in all of my baby dolls...should be a ball!! xx.L
