A good snapshot stops a moment from running away. - Eudora Welty

[Cool light fixture @Ikea]

This weekend my mom came down to the valley to hit the coveted Santa Monica Farmer's Market. So I decided to meet up with her afterward for some mommy and me time :-) Here is my Saturday in pictures;
[Rattan Balls also @Ikea]

I went looking for new digs this weekend, and I came across this place. It's a tad too pricey and the amenities were eh, so-so. The building was cool though.
Next stop; Soi.7 [Downtown L.A]

I loved the decor

Fully stocked Sake bar. YUM

Pineapple Fried Rice!

Beef Pad Thai

Since we were downtown, we went to one of my favorite places to hide out; The Los Angeles Central Library

The 4th floor of the library

Nothing like old books!

My favorite section!! I am fascinated with Roman & Etruscan antiquities

Of course we had to do SOMETHING hair related! We decided to swing by Ulta after leaving the library.

You know I couldn't leave empty handed!! That Paul Mitchell is a MUST-HAVE as a winter leave-in. My hair feels like butter, and it's super shiny too. I got the 3.4oz size for about $3.95, not bad eh?

The Keracare Shampoo & FF Glossing Cream are staples around these parts, and a review on the Dermologica is coming soon!


  1. i love the pic of the old books...i used to go deep into one of the libraries on my campus as an undergrad and just hunt for the oldest books possible! (what a way to procrastinate when i was supposed to be studying...haha!)

    PM the conditioner is one of my staple leave-ins, as well. loving the blog!

  2. Your blog is so personal, warm and real. Thanks for giving us a chance to glimpse into your everyday world, and of course your world of hair!! I'm definitely learning lots here; thanks for sharing!!!!

  3. I love the pic of the old books as well! We had a small collection when I was little but at some point my Mom got rid of them, I would love to start a little collection of them. There is something about the smell of old books that I love so much.

  4. @Mojo Thank You!!! Nice to know I am not the only one who loves old books. People just don't seem to appreciate them anymore. - I definitely don't mind procrastinating that could be

  5. @Stella, Wow! Thank you very much for the compliment. It is much appreciated, and I am glad you are finding some useful stuff around here :-)

  6. @HisHersChicago Yes! Start a collection, flea markets, and thrift stores would be perfect places to start! I love the smell of old books as well, something about the pages, and how they curl and yellow a bit as they get older...

  7. @Mojo! Oh yeah..I forgot to add. Where have I been, and WHY am I just now getting hip to PM The Condish? I could have saved myself a whole week of turmoil had I bought this sooner! lol
