Lovely new song & video from Fleet Foxes new album Helplessness Blues.


Have you guys ever heard of Lotusland?  It sounds incredible.  In 1941, Polish socialite and Opera singer Madame Ganna Walksa purchased the estate Lotusland in Santa Barbara and dedicated her life to turning it into a whimsical botanical garden.  Since her death in 1984, the garden has been left to the public, and it boasts a butterfly garden, an aloe garden & a cycad garden, for which she auctioned off a million dollars worth of her personal jewelry collection to finish before she died.  The place sounds enchanting, and since I've been dying to make weekend road trip to Santa Barbara, 
I just made reservations for their Cacti & Cocktails event on June 11.  
Hooray for gardens and good weather!

The inspiration for this post is, well, I feel like I need more bling.  I've got some great simple pieces,
but I need those statement pieces that really make an outfit more interesting.

definitely be hitting up heaven on earth that Saturday evening.

when it rains, it pours.

leaky roofs and broken umbrellas abound in LA,
but surely in the grand scheme of things, I think we're doing all right.
here's to hoping things start looking up this week in the world.

A Moveable Feast

"But Paris was a very old city and we were young and nothing was simple there, not even poverty, nor sudden money, nor the moonlight, nor right and wrong nor the breathing of someone who lay beside you in the moonlight."
