It’s been a good week. Thursday I celebrated an undisclosed birthday, and true to my imaginary Mexican roots, my fabulous mom made an ah-mazing Mexican dinner, complete with mashed potatoes (no relation there … other than my love of potatoes. Healthy, I know.)
The Mexican infatuation is borderline obsessive, and thus, our much anticipated house warming party (the party that has still yet to be planned), will feature a … drumroll … Mexican theme. So far, I have chili pepper dishes, a pin the tail on the donkey game, and mustaches. Feel free to offer suggestions … I hit a wall at the realization that Sombreros don’t come cheap. Oh right – Opening Ceremony featured Venessa Arizaga‘s threaded pieces dangling with hand-painted skulls, dyed stone crosses, Guadalupe virgins and other Mexican cultural symbols, and piñata, Pamela Love‘s rings and necklaces, plated in oxidized bronze and silver, shaped in a papel picado motif – both evoke the spirit of Mexico’s Día de los Muertos celebrations. “Welcome to our new home, we’re delighted you could come, happy day of the dead.” Okay, not a perfect theme – but at least the jewelry will be fierce!
Because I fancy myself a regular badass chick, Honestly WTF and their easy DIY spike comb design really speaks to me.
Chelsea has the world’s best hair and gives us a peak inside her bevy of fabulous and inexpensive hair products, tips, and tricks! Also, I love this picture.
And on that note, I miss Paris every day. Our Honeymoon feels like ages ago, and I’m ready for another one. Must research inexpensive vacations ASAP.
