Hey everybody! I hope you're doing well! I've been pretty busy lately. It seems like everything keeps piling up no matter what the circumstance. I needed to decompress, so I spent the the day relaxing 100%. I really needed it. I watched some X-Files & The Brady Bunch. I always get a kick out of seeing what kind of styles were fashionable at the time. It's good for some inspiration!

I've been monitoring my food intake & eating clean so I was very pleased to see that I had lost 3 pounds over the course of the last 2 to 3 weeks. Prior to weighing myself, I genuinely felt fitter. Sometimes the scale can lie, so it's always important to use other measures to gauge weight loss. I felt better & that's all I needed. The scale basically verified the fact that I did indeed shed a couple pounds. Woohoo!

A few weeks ago I was invited to the opening of a new jewelry gallery in Del Mar called Made in Earth*; I received this necklace as a token of appreciation. It includes pieces of black tourmaline trapped within quartz. It goes with anything since the quartz is sheer. It kind of camouflages itself to match any look.

I borrowed my boyfriend's shirt for this look. I asked him where it was from, but he couldn't recall. Fun fact: I found this purse in the dumpster! Well, by the dumpster. Someone had a whole box of stuff they were throwing out & I nabbed it. The bag reminds me of a carpet or couch or Mary Poppins' magical bag. What do you think? How's your life? Have you ever dumpster dived or found a cool item? :]
