Last weekend, I had the pleasure of going to the grand opening of a new vintage/ craft store in downtown Fullerton called Oh Hello Friend. Danni Hong, the creative genius behind the cute brand, was one of the women whose blog inspired me to make my own. I don’t know.. The idea of a person pursuing what they love to do and making it their full time job is such an amazing dream! It is truly inspiring! I’ve been trying to brainstorm some ideas.. And, well, lets just say you’ll be the first to know when I come up with anything good!
She also had a dessert station and a DIY button station which was fun to enjoy while waiting in line. The store has a great location and is also surrounded by cute little vintage shops, delicious cafes, and unique stores.
I had to resort to my iPhone camera that day bc I had the baby with me and the idea of carrying my sister’s nice (but overly big) camera seemed impossible.. I don’t know how people do it! Anyway, it was a great morning and I enjoyed bonding with my sister and friend, Louise, who came with us. (Hi Lo!)

I’d really like to start investing in a polaroid camera for my family. I think it would be a nice and fun way to capture certain moments instantly. When my sister got one for her birthday awhile back, I’m not going to lie…I was a little jealous. I think I will start saving for one of my own. Here’s what inspired this new want:
This past weekend, my husband and I stopped by this Indie Arts & Craft Show in Long Beach. Have I told you how much I LOVE Long Beach? Every time we go there I think back to the days when I used to live there…when I used to bike to work…when the weather was almost ALWAYS perfect…when I used to go surfing every morning…Oh..those were the days! Anyway, here are some of the unique handmade crafts I REALLY REALLY wanted to buy:
Okay, I’m not that big on Maternity Photos…perhaps I don’t have the confidence in my body that I should have, or maybe it is because my friends and I make fun of so many of them, but I thought I’d showcase some good ones that I thought have a lot of potential.
