#HARVEYCLIQUE

 Lazy afternoons playing grown-up dress-up. Couldn't resist rolling around in my new #HARVEYCLIQUE shirt before I chop it up into a dress (watch this spot for the DIY tutorial). If you aren't a part of the Harvey Clique yet, get right and go follow my baes, Brothers Grim, on Facebook, and get down to some heavy bass music. Get a shirt of your own by donating HERE and catch them dropping tons of new releases on their national tour this month. 
Also, pretty stoked on my bunny mask from iheartraves.com and the fact that I finally picked up a pair of super comfy HUF socks.

We celebrated 5 years of Monday shows this month at Organized Grime!
I worked a double-shift yet again this Valentine's Day. I don't mind. I love my coworkers :)
You know those mattress tags that day "DO NOT REMOVE"? Well, I'm kind of a badass.

My favorite sunset T.U.K. creepers.
Caffeine is so necessary.
Ole Smoky sent me a jar of their Apple Pie moonshine to try. I can't wait to make the "Dolly" recipe they sent with it as soon as I get my hands on some limes!
Pretty Valentine chocolates from my mama.

[grand tour] Julian, CA


On Saturday, Kevin and I drove up to Julian to explore the tiny town famous for it's incredible apple pie. After a slice, of course, we poked around in all of the adorable gift shops and went a little sugar-crazy in the Julian Candy Basket. I also couldn't resist buying a few of the beautifully scented handcrafted soaps from the sweet woman behind the counter at the Julian Soap Company. It was a relaxing afternoon, enjoying the crisp winter air and passing a bottle of root beer back and forth while meandering lazily down the charmingly uneven sidewalks of the main drag. We finished off the day with chicken pot pie, grilled cheese, and fried pickles at the Rongbranch Restaurant and went home with full bellies and a fresh apple crumble pie for my parents. 










What I wore: Floppy Hat from eBay, Cream Shirt from Forever 21, White and Gray Scarf from Target, High-waist Skinny Jeans from Hollister, Five Layer Fringe Boots from Minnetonka, Bracelets from Charming Charlie and Walmart, Watch from Rue 21.

DIY Gift Guide :: Kiddos

As the holidays approach, we are all thinking about how we can show the people in our lives that we appreciate them. We all know that I love to DIY, and putting effort into creating a handmade gift always means so much. Every week until Christmas, I'll be posting a DIY gift guide with ideas for things you can create that people actually want.
This week, I found so many fun ideas for things to make for kids! Boys or girls, toddlers or almost pre-teens, there are so many cool tutorials for the little bambinos. When I was a kid, my favorite gifts were either books, or things I could DIY. If you are gifting an older child, you might consider just giving them the materials and letting them create for themselves! Whether you're making gifts for your own kids, or for someone else's (Or even yourself! There are some really cool ideas!), there is something here for all of the little angels in your life.

1. Tee Pee's can provide hours of fun, whether it be a home base for imaginative adventures, or a sweet reading nook. [tutorial]

2. I loved playing dress up with my dolls when I was little. If you can do some simple sewing, follow THIS tutorial to create a doll that looks just like the little girl she'll be gifted to. [tutorial]

3. These homemade bath crayons look like so much fun! Pair them with a rubber ducky, a bottle of bubble bath, and a terry-cloth robe to make the next bath time one they will look forward to! [tutorial]

4. This I-Spy Bottle is a great way to keep a kiddo occupied and quiet, and the little treasures can be changed out every now and then to keep things interesting! [tutorial]

5. Print THESE free paper dolls on card stock, and put them in a small box or repurposed tin with some scissors. [source]

6. Create a science experiment kit! Pick up some simple materials and a bucket to keep them in, print off THESE experiment directions, and let the kids have at it! Bonus points for being educational, as well ;) [tutorial]

7. This Glitter Flubber stuff is just awesome. [tutorial]

8. Marshmallow Shooters are fun to give to your friends kids, and if you are daring, your own. Don't forget a bag of mini marshmallows to get the game started! [tutorial]
