We’re trying to be mindful of what’s going on in our current climate all while navigating a new relationship. We decided that Saturdays would be our day to do the shopping and grab whatever stuff we might need for the week. It’s becoming routine that we hit Shoppe Amber, French, grab vegan cheese at the Calabasas farmers market and then get groceries at Trader Joes and Whole Foods. It’s a solid routine that allows us to spend time together outside and enjoy fresh air all while getting the things that we need. Stay safe, we still aren’t out of the storm.
If you go anywhere in Calabasas and look down at peoples choice of footwear, nine out of ten times you’ll see them wearing a pair of Golden Goose® sneakers. I’ve always thought they looked cute on girls but I started noticing even most of the ‘basas dads were wearing them. I couldn’t understand the fascination with these purposely beat up, dirty, shoes so I decided to buy a pair and see what the hype was all about. So, is it worth the insane price tag for a pair of shoes that look exactly like something you would find in the Goodwill bins? Youtube video coming soon.
It’s finally here, Episode 003 of the SS/OUNDWAVES® podcast. This is the first time that we’ve done a podcast together and I think the dynamic is really interesting. The fact that there’s a female and male point of view wasn’t something that I thought would steer the conversation but it totally did and turned our subject matter into a freestyle dialogue with depth. We welcome you to listen and tell us your thoughts.
I can’t believe we’ve only been together for a month because it feels like we’ve been doing this dance for a lifetime. Come along with us as we shop at our local farmers market and do our first unboxing together. We’re going to be doing a lot more vlogging and podcasts so be sure to subscribe to the channel :)
P.s. if any brands are interested in sending us stuff to unbox, feel free to message us here.
I’ve been obsessed with vintage Harley-Davidson® crewneck sweatshirts from the late 80’s/early 90’s and Hedi era Dior® Homme. As much as I love to dress “grown up” there’s a vintage uniform aspect to my style that I don’t think I’ll ever grow out of because I feel like I always end up revisiting this particular vibe in my wardrobe. There’s something fulfilling about giving new life to beat up rare and designer garments.
I found a lovely pair of Hedi era Dior® Homme bootcut velvet pants on eBay for a ridiculous price. I acted fast and bought them right away without paying close attention to the description because I was so excited about the purchase. When they got delivered today I noticed they were a forest green color and not black like I thought. That’s completely my fault but its nothing that a little dying project can’t fix. Sometimes you need to take matters into your own hands and create the look you want, especially when finding beautiful pieces for an absurdly underestimated price. I’ll post the results in the next Deals & Steals video.
It’s still really crazy to say; “I have a girlfriend” because I’ve been too focused on myself lately to really commit to someone. That and no one seemed to have the energy that I’ve been looking for. There was always something missing or things just didn’t seem right. But with her, it’s as if we’re two souls that got separated somewhere along our journey that have finally reconnected. It’s effortless, there’s no force or friction and we absolutely adore everything about each other. So, I thought, why not bring you guys along as I give her a gift.
We attract the type of individuals that we are. We reflect our standards for ourselves onto others and like a magnet those reflections are what enter our life. I had to change everything about myself in order to be someone how loves himself and was okay with cruising solo for awhile. I always knew my person would eventually arrive but I didn’t know when and I didn’t know in what type of packaging. Then, it finally happened. With a lot of hard work, luck and the right timing I suddenly had an encounter that felt old, instantly connected and just sort of felt like home. I don’t know how else to describe it but all I know is I’m exactly who I was always meant to be and now spending time with who I was always meant to spend it with. We both know we are perfectly fine without each other but are so undeniably grateful to the universe for allowing us to find one another. It’s like the ultimate dream, the ultimate team and ultimate proof that magic is real.
I woke up this morning feeling extremely grateful. Honestly, I’m so fortunate to be able to wake up everyday, do what I enjoy, work on the things that I feel like making, buy the things I like and spend time with someone who I really love sharing my time with. I don’t need much else. Success is a measurement of happiness, not a catalog of stuff. I hope you are all having a wonderful day and thanking the universe for all that you have.
