HMH Bazaar & Boutique

I got the most amazing package in the mail from Shannon of HMH Boutique Bazaar! She makes the most amazing fanny packs a girl could ever dream of. For some odd reason I have always loved fanny packs, when they were cool to wear as a kid, when they were not cool to wear as a tween, when they definitely were not cool to wear as a teen/young adult and now when right now they are cool again. I have all kinds, vintage leather, fringed, acid wash denim, regular denim, plaid, you name it I have probably collected over 20 something different types thrifting and buying on etsy. So when Shannon asked me if I would want one, I instantly said yes yes yes! The interiors of each fanny pack has an adorable

Fiber Art // Mustard and Teal

Getting back in to the swing of things when you've been on vacation for 16 days is pretty hard. I had a couple orders I didn't finish before I left including this extra large woven dreamer. The colors were teal, aqua and a dark mustard with pops of light gray. I love adding the huge fluffy pom poms to add dimension. I always get intimidated working with specific colors but in the end I always really love them! Enjoy!

Barcelona - Museu Picasso and Beaches

It was our last day in Spain yesterday, we were in Barcelona. We woke up from our Airbnb, packed our bags and dropped them off at a local locker place and went to explore the city before we had to leave. We first went tot he Museu Picasso, which houses the largest amount of Picasso paintings and a wing inspired by Picasso and a wing dedicated to the life of Picasso. They don't allow pictures but it was an experience I will never forget. It starts with paintings from when we was 13 and moves on from there. The two portraits of his parents, Science and Charity, The First Communion are paintings I've read about in books for years. But my all time favorite Picasso The Wait took my breathe away.

Barcelona - Park Guell, La Sagrada & Les Rambles

Our Airbnb couldn't have been in a more perfect place. Right around the corner from the LaBoqueria Market we woke up, went to get coffee and jumped on the bus to get to the Park Guell. You have to buy tickets early so don't forget to do that! Its beyond worth the wait. We walked around the free part until it was our time to go in! It was designed by Antoni Gaudí, a renowned architect and the face of Catalan modernism. The park was built between 1900 and 1914 and was officially opened as a public park in 1926. The battery on my camera died even though I use the double pack, I just wasn't paying attention to it and we had to get to the Basilica de La Sagrada Familia for our next ticket times.

Berber Villages and Atlas Mtns, Morocco

Today we started our day with a home cooked breakfast on the rooftop of the Riad El Wiam. It was just as delicious as the morning before. We scheduled a guided tour to visit outside the city of Marrakech and our tour guide, Adil came to pick us up. Today was national worker's day in Marrakech so most businesses were closed. We took about a 30 minute ride to outside of the city and stopped at a Berber Village Daily Market, where they sell everything from clothes and shoes, to cooked meat, to live stock, to butchered meat, they have a barber shop area, an area for vegetables and fruits. Adil told us to be very wary of taking pictures. After Adil purchased the largest bunch of mint I had ever s

Jardine Majorelle//Garden, Yves Saint-Laurent Morocco

After spending the day outside the city, we decided to end our day at the incredibly beautiful Jardine Majorelle, 12 acres large, designed by the expatriate French artist Jacques Majorelle in the 1920s and 1930s. The special shade of bold cobalt blue which he used extensively in the garden and its buildings is named after him, bleu Majorelle—Majorelle Blue (wiki). Since 1980 the garden has been owned by Yves Saint-Laurent and Pierre Bergé. After Yves Saint Laurent died in 2008 his ashes were scattered in the Majorelle Garden (wiki). We then got a little coffee and dessert and headed off to our new Riad. #Travel #Morocco
