1 Minute DIY: Instax Mini Polaroid Magnets


I have been trying to figure out how to display my Instax minis for a while now.  I didn't think I would ever really look at them if I put them in an album, so after coming across playing card sleeves, I thought it would be a perfect way to protect and display.

Supplies:
Mini Instax
Card Sleeves (I used a flexible white set from a local game store, but I want to try the hard plastic sleeves next)
Magnetic Tape (Also available at Michael's)

Neither of our closets are exactly bursting with color, but these bright embroidered looks are making us reconsider.

Bolinas Beach House

 



Photos by Rene

Just got back from spending the weekend at a friend's beach house in Bolinas.  Driving in was a little bit of a nightmare in a couple ways: 
1. I get nauseous as a passenger on windy roads
2. The fog over the hill made it feel like we were driving into a horror movie murder house (I actually really like scary movies).

It was pretty foggy and cold this morning too, but the sun actually came out around 2 so I got to enjoy some nice sun and a light hat-blowing breeze.  

Bolinas is such a funny town.  It is really small, and pretty isolated....gas was going for $4.65.  Being so small, everyone says hello when passing by down to the beach.  There is a used, un-manned bookstore that operates on the honor system (with a pricing suggestion guide) and the downtown area looks like a slice of Americana...think whitewashed 'general store' type buildings.  

If Stinson is too crowded for you, Bolinas is a more low-key alternative.  You should note, however, that the sand is not as soft!

Shopping Guide // Bucket Bags


The Mansur Gavriel bucket bags just got re-stocked, and Whit finally broke down and ordered!  If the MG isn't an option, there are tons of cheaper (and in-stock) alternatives out there that are just as cute.

INSPO // Lightweight Whites

Summer is here (maybe...it is actually pretty cold this week), so easy-breezy whites are back in play.  Picking some lightweight white pieces with interesting accents, like a button-up back or sleeve ruffles, keeps you cool and keeps you cool. B)

It's hard to resist the seasonal Zara sale...this season especially they have some really great deals in styles that are summer-appropriate.  I originally wanted another off-the-shoulder top, but couldn't resist this more unique version (and also the other tops I wanted had already sold out).

I recovered from our 15+ mosquito bites from Yosemite, finally.  After the intense weekend of climbing and hiking, it was nice to have a day without plans--no errands to run, workouts at the gym, or concerts to go to.  Just a day around the neighborhood and some good o' Polly Ann ice cream.  Question: how do bloggers get such cute shots eating ice cream?  I couldn't resist eating my ice cream before it all melted.
