another update

Well, I was going to start selling vintage clothes (I've collected too much lately...) but again, I haven't found the time to get things started. So, who am I kidding? I'm not going to half-heatedly start something I can't finish.

I miss blogging a bit, so I am jumping back in, starting fresh. I Will probably make my first post after my roadtrip to Chicago next week! If you want the new link send me a comment with your blog or email and I'll send it to ya! I'm trying to be a little less public... xoxo

thanks thanks thanks!

Welp, I've decided to stop blogging cosas pequenas felices. Over the past few months I simply haven't had the time write, scour and edit over all the things I want to share with people and the blog has suffered as a result. Thanks to anyone who's subscribed, commented and read all my ramblings. I'm still reading and enjoying all your blogs....

Play Time!

We've had rainy mornings and gorgeous, sunny afternoons in Houston. There's talk of a picnic at the Menil lawn that will include cheese, wine and the boyfriend's homemade chicken salad.. which involves cranberry sauce and brie. Life is good-- I have no complaints.

As these long summer days approach us, I fantasize about play clothes, sandals and sunburns.... hope your weekend is sunny, funny and happy.

Pink Reunion

pink by explauren featuring Givenchy flat shoes

For the past four years I've HATED the color pink in my wardrobe. I think it has something to do with my Mom or Paris Hilton or hardcore Victoria Secret Pink princess types. It's not that I judge anyone who wears it, pink always looks precious on little girls and women in moderation. Hell, I'd go for an all-pink dress if the occasion was right. I've slowly started to introduce the color back into my outfits. I tried to put together a few items I would like and wear as a little challenge for myself. It was hard, and almost made me start hating pink again :)

Westheimer Block Party

The Westheimer Block Party was so much fun! It's basically seven to eight venues, usually former houses, set up with bands on every floor or parking lot, playing all day. Bring your own beer, paint your own face, enjoy the wonderful Houston weather. for the record, everyone's favorite band of the day was Ringo Deathstar, a pop band from Austin.

I loved all the cute families that came out-- my favorite was the little boy who proudly wore his wolf hat. It doesn't get any cuter than that. (And he kind of looks like what I imagine my boyfriend looked like when he was little. I have a adorable photo of him dressed up as a bunny to prove it; will save it for an Easter post). The colors, clear skies and action of the block party set up the perfect opportunity for me to play around with my camera for the first time.

Pollen Break

Busy weekend, busy start.. will post lots of pictures soon. For now, enjoy my allergies!

Anvil Bar & Refuge

So last night I headed out to Montrose's Anvil Bar & Refuge, a cocktail bar run by Robert Heugel, Kevin Floyd, and Steve Flippo-- a couple of cocktail freaks who also manage Drink Dogma, a cocktail blog dedicated to art and seduction of quality spirits.

My first drink was adorable and delicious. Gin, honey and lemon. Named for something related to a bee. I don't remember, but it was good. Didn't want to drink it too fast good. My second drink was a drink that involved egg whites and tequila. It was okay. Kinda frothy and didn't sit right knowing the two were mixed. The atmosphere was great, the clientele was a little more upscale than one would expect, but I think that will balance out as time goes on.

Jacked pictures from Drink Dogma and someone's flickr account, who obviously has some stake in the bar. Both sites provide lots of neat photos and information about how the the bar came to be.

Sidenote: I hate that I ended two sentences on this post with prepositions.

..the end user

My friend, Nick, whom I mentioned before about his LifeHacker fame, is starting a new blog about how to put your computer to work for you. He says, "We don't create software or computer hardware we simply use it...we are the end users."

Take a look!

Woah! Guerilla Knitting.

Haven't seen any in real life, but I'm willing to bet it would turn a frown upside-down. The lost shot is of First Street in Austin, Texas.


So excited. Having one of my favorites in town for the Westheimer Block Party (which I can now walk to thanks to my new location) and the weather looks promising.

Don't say it. it's silly and I know it. Since I won't be bleaching the life out of my hair to achieve the most adorable color combination in the world, I will express my desires in the form of sugar, flour and eggs.
