Things I Need/Want/Would Die To Have

1. I love these bags and have been looking at them on Etsy for months

2. A bicycle.  It’s getting warmer outside and I just want to be able to ride a bike around.  Mine got stolen last summer and I am now stuck walking everywhere.  It’s hard cause I want a bike that is functional in Salt Lake City, but would like it to be cute too…does such a bike exist?  We’ll see.

3. An external flash that I can attach to my camera.  I keep borrowing Laura’s and I think it’s time I just get my own.  Just gotta find one that is compatible with my Canon 40D.

4. In the same vein, I would kill for a ring flash too!!!  They create the most beautiful lighting.  Haven’t done enough research yet to know which ones would fit my lens.

5. A Polaroid instant film camera that shoots Type 100 film.
i.e. any of the following:
Polaroid Colorpack II Land Camera
Polaroid Colorpack II Land Camera 1960's

Polaroid Automatic 100 Land Camera
Vintage Polaroid Automatic 100 Land Camera

Polaroid Super Shooter
Vintage Polaroid Super Shooter Instant Camera

Polaroid Super Shooter
1970's Polaroid Super Shooter

6. A Polaroid SX-70 Camera.
This is just one I found on Etsy:  Rainbow One Step
Vintage Polaroid SX-70 Rainbow One Step Camera

7. A Twin Lens Reflux camera to try out TTV Photography.  Sounds cool, I want to try it.
These are a few cameras I found that would work, there are lots though I think.
Argus Super 75 Vintage Argus Super 75 twin lens reflex camera and leather case

Spartus Full-Vue Vintage Spartus Full-Vue twin lens camera

Richomatic 44 1956 Vintage Richomatic 44 Twin lens reflex 127 film camera SALE

8. Also, a camera that shoots 620 film.  Something like one of these:
Imperial Mark VII Flash 1950s IMERIAL MARK VII FLASH CAMERA  -  Vintage Camera  -  Box CameraOr this one
Tower Snappy Vintage MEdium format camera, Tower-Snappy

(apparently I want to collect old cameras…)

9. An old/awesome copy of Romeo & Juliet.  I’ve been looking for an amazing copy because I love that book so much.  It’s beautiful.

10. Floral tights.  I need some.  I love them.

Current Obsessions

1. LookBook.  I am hooked.  I now want to be part of it almost as much as Jil.  Maybe we should have a contest to see who can get on LookBook first Jil?  ReadySetGo.

2. Bones, the T.V. show.  Watch it every night as I lay in bed going to sleep.  Almost through 2nd season!

3. Leather.  I covet almost every leather jacket I see.  …pretty sure I need to get some leather pants.  And obviously leather boots are incredible as well.  I want to wear leather all the time.

4. Nesquik chocolate milk.  It’s just so good!!!  Made from the powder mix of course, not that pre-mixed garbage.

5. Military jackets.  I got mine at H&M and I want to wear it everyday of my life.  I need more.  I am thinking about buying some plain jackets and embellishing them to look military-esque…?  We’ll see.

6. Chrysanthemums. Japanese ones mostly.chrysanthemum

7. Gaudiness.  I can’t get enough of things gaudy and gold, draped and embellished, sparkling and over the top…it’s kinda gross and I love it.

8. My little brother Alex.  He is hysterical.

9. Tights and leggings.  It’s getting cold; I need more tights; more colors and patterns.

10. Apple Cider.

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things

Here are a few things that I absolutely can’t get enough of lately:

1. Tavi and her blog. (link on right) She is the most genius 13 year old that has ever lived.  I don’t understand.  She is incredible.  Can I have her please?

2. The leather jacket Karen O is wearing in the Yeah Yeah Yeahs video for Zero.  It’s coolness blows my mind.  And the song is pretty great as well.

(bad pics, watch the video instead to get a good look)




3. No Doubt is back together.  They performed on American Idol last week and I thought I was going to see glammed-up Gwen Stefani singing with the old No Doubt band.  I was decieved.  It was awesome.  Gwen came out with a wife beater over a flourescent green bra and her hair tied up in knots; it was as if I had been transported back to 1995.  With drummer in his tutu and black lipstick, she acted her old funky ska self and sang “Just A Girl” just the way it should be sung.  They are going on tour this summer and writing a new record on the road, so get ready, it’s gonna be an awesome show.

no doubt

4. Where The Wild Things Are.  Watch the trailer, can’t wait.

5. Dr. Pepper.  I’m addicted.  But it’s just so good!  Maybe I should really try to stop though soon.  May need your help.

6. Photo booth strip pictures.  I just can’t ever get sick of taking these.  I have some really great ideas though so if you are ever in the mood to take some call me and we will do it.


7. Skulls.

8. Joey Anthon Jackson’s photographs.  Check out his recent albums on facebook if you are friends with him.  He is so amazing.  His portraits are superb.  And I’m so jealous of his travels and life right now.  If you don’t know him you can check out his blog(right) or find his recent travel history and photos at


9. Octopi.

10. Purple.
