The 1980's era has always been a favorite of mine, as evidenced in my shop inventory. ;)

I listed many items before I went on vacation, but never did an update of them all on the blog, so I'm just getting back to that now. Yes, dear friends, it's many a morning that I start my day with an 80's playlist consisting of about 50 of my favorite songs from my childhood - chock full of Duran Duran, Cyndi Lauper, The Pet Shop Boys, and The Go Gos just to name a few. What can I say, it's music that makes me happy!

My favorite fashion details about the 80's are metallics, puff sleeves, ruffled party dresses and most of all LACE. (Complete Madonna fan) Any fads from then that you really like?

California Trip in Pictures

It was so very nice to get away for a while.

The powerful presence of the mountains made me not want to leave.

Stay with me, sunshiny perfect moments. . .

So pretty it can bring one to tears!

Celebrity sighting at King's Highway restaurant on Palm Canyon Drive. Guess who? ;)

Funniest picture taken!


My boyfriend's babies that he brought back from the Moorten Botanical Gardens.

The song immediately started playing when I saw this hotel!

Loved the brightly colored modern look in the place we stayed.

While at the botanical gardens, I got too close to a cactus taking pics on macro setting and this is what happened! Don't worry, I was laughing, not crying.

Inside the cacti green house.

My sis was in town the same time we were, was nice to meet up for a bit, she'd just bought those pretty earrings.

One of the highlights of the trip, picking fresh citrus off of trees just outside. I mean, COME ON! Paradise! :)

I posted many more pics on Flickr, but these were some of the highlights for me. I took SO many scenic photos, I couldn't believe it when I counted them all. Isn't it nice to get out of town for a while? The wedding we attended was also lovely as ever! I ended up finding out that it was the same place Christina Applegate was married!

This trip made me realize I probably won't be a mitten girl forever. The sunshine, fresh fruit just out the doorstep, warmth, and those breathtaking mountains have convinced me that I need to be in a warmer, sunnier climate for my overall happiness. No immediate plans as of yet, but I'm starting to really think about it.

On another note, I missed you blogger and twitter friends! Cannot believe I was without the internet for 5 days. I did manage to tweet from my little phone here and there, but that's about it. I was thrilled to see my son after over a week yesterday, and I'm feeling completely refreshed. Now it's time to return to routine, and get BACK TO WORK! Expect a shop update soon. :)
