I hope everyone had a great weekend!
Yesterday, we had an arts/crafts-tastic Sunday. After walking the doggies (here’s a boring but recent video of them! Videos will lack sound fx or music today. I’m not allowing myself fun-video-making time today!)
we headed over to Indie Mart to check out the goods and to meet Vivianna of PolkaDotRobot!. You should check out their site because they are having a 24 hour sale, and it ends at midnight tonight PST!
Hairy and I also both bought shirts for $5 from VintageVantage.com. Here’s mine!
I would have worn it today, but I have a thing about washing any clothing before wearing it!!!
Afterward, we went to check out a new studio space for Hairy and his screenprinting stuffs. It’s a shared work space/art gallery, and I think he’s really into it. Right now, his stuff is in some other dude’s basement.
Sorry for the crap quality. It’s from my phone!
In other news, check out the little Q&A I did over at 84area.com!
Okay, this is really random, but here are my thoughts on 2 Kiehl’s products (I LOVE their Ultra Facial Cream btw, especially now that it’s getting drier outside):
So my hair stylist Jules gave me permission to NOT condition my hair all the time. We of the coarse, straight, flat Asian hair, desire to wreck our hair as much as possible so that it has texture, and, for me, VOLUME! The not-conditioning thing was like this brilliant stroke of genius! The downside: static!!! But while I was at the Kiehl’s booth, I picked up a volumizing Rice and Wheat shampoo, and just picked up the Rice and Wheat conditioner, too (we were trying to spend enough for the free gift). I’ve had it since Houston and never tried it. The other day I tried the conditioner…and WOW!!! I was really afraid I would have the dreaded FLAT HAIR that stupid Pantene gives me because my hair was feeling SO SOFT. But after my regular styling and drying, I was pleased to discover that SOFT does not have to mean FLAT. I was really impressed with this product!!!
I was less impressed with one of the free samples we got of the grapefruit shower gel.
While I am not a big fan of citrus scents to begin with, I really felt like I was rubbing the scent of armpits all over my body. Maybe I’m weird and my B.O smells like grapefruits….who knows. But this was definitely not my fav!
Alrighty, I am going to make me some cake-inspired pouches/purses now! Thanks so much for your thoughts and feedback! As someone commented, you can’t please everyone, and that’s for sure. Usually when I design things, I design them to please MYSELF and I think about what I would actually use and like, so it’s interesting to hear what others use and like, too.
