Cimetiere du Pere Lachaise: The Lost Photos

How creepy is it that while we were in Paris half of the photos I took at Pere Lachaise cemetary went mysteriously missing? Well, yesterday I finally took the plunge and restored my iPhone so I could upgrade to IOS 7. I was reluctant to do it since I am technologically challenged and I could have lost everything on my phone. I waited patiently for 3 hours for the restore to complete. I was able to successfully update my iPhone and everything on my iPhone was backed up. I even was able to finally download the new Party Party app. I made my first video to celebrate National Lipstick Day. Then I panicked when my iPhoto decided to all of a sudden crash on my macbook. I had to repair my library but for some strange reason when iPhoto restarted there was a folder that said "Recovered Photos" Hmm, I opened it and found a bunch of old photos I had previously deleted but there was about 200 of the 400 photos I lost in Paris. Sweet! So now I can show some of the photos we took when we were at Pere Lachaise cemetary and our visit to a cute craft store La Doguerie and a few of rue Montorgueil *sadly the rest are still missing*

I spotted this all over the city
Thankfully my lips didn't fall off from disease!

So Gatsby-esque

We took the metro over to Les Halles in the 3rd and did some shopping
Channeling my inner Sia
We had so much fun in here until one of the cranky clerks told us we couldn't take photos. I never understand why some shop's have that dumb policy.
rue Montorgueil is on of the most popular pedestrian streets in Paris. It's similar to the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica.
Tasting sorbet
Nope, we did not try any escargot!
 What a pleasant surprise to find these photos!

Los Angeles Renegade Craft Fair 2014

Hello There!

I feel like it's been an eternity since I last posted but I adore the photos from our shoot in London with Lee so much, I hate to see them disappear from my home page. Well today we went to the Renegade Craft Fair and we were prepared for the California sun. We all wore sunscreen, I was armed with my parsol and Liv had her sunglasses. The weather Gods took mercy on us and as we were walking from the parking lot, we were caught in a rain storm. It lasted all of fifteen minutes but enough rain to cool down and hopefully quench our poor backyard's thirst. The craft fair has moved from it's regular location of the LA Historic State Park *which is under complete renovation* to the popular Grand Park. I loved the new location. The parking was a pain, but Grand Park is so lovely and we prefer the grassy area to the usual dirt field. I hope they always have it there.

Olivia's crown was a huge hit, pretty much every person told her they liked it!
Little did I know the lens was covered in raindrops


Nan Lawson is one of my favorite artists
We had to show the lady who makes this rad jewelry the photos of Liv's rabbit mask
