Interior Love- Anarchy in the U.K.

Since I was a kid, I have always been exposed to the British culture through T.V. shows my dad would watch (Ab Fab, Faulty Towers, Father Ted). Needless to say, I became a fan of this small island country rather early in life. It was the first country that I visited as an adult (with my bestie) and my obsession was validated in a single trip!

From the homes of friends to British shops to restaurants, it is easy to see that there is a flair for design in this country. When I saw this post on apartment therapy I was thrilled! It reminds me of this book that my friend has New London Style - which is awesome, totally worth checking out. Here's an ode to the Union Jack and English style!

Travelog- Fake tales of San Fransisco

Was in San Fran a few weekends ago and I must say that I really love that place! The vibe is just amazing and I feel like it's totally my style. It's a city of artists and writers, it's a city of hippies and hipsters, it's a city where the thick fog hugs you in a chilled embrace. One day I wish to live there, even if it's for just a little while.

Fake Tale of San Fransisco:
Homeless guy: Can you spare a couple hundred dollars?
Me: *laughs* when you find that person, send them my way!
Homeless guy: I'll have my people contact your people.

Travelog- L.A. Garment District

I spent most of my morning in DTLA helping a friend look for some fabric in the garment district. I have some mixed feelings about this place. It's kinda dingy and I am drawn to that, but I was really hoping that there would be more selection. Don't get me wrong, there were some beautiful fabrics but every shop seemed to have the same thing and we only found one fabric that fit our criteria (We were searching for a heavy woolen fabric).

Here are the pros and cons:

PROS: cool downtown environment, ability to barter price, tons of shops to browse, good selection of everything except heavy woolen fabrics

CONS: You must pay for parking, TONS of cops- on bikes and in cars (be careful driving)
