tryin' to stay cool in style

so, it is hot hot hot here in la this week... i am constantly carrying one of the many fans i have collected from  past trips to various parts of asia to try to keep cool (above are 3 of my favorites). i don't know if i look as chic as karl lagerfeld while fanning myself  but i do have to say they sure do the trick!

interning has been a challenge this week as far as trying to literally maintain my "cool."  i have to park outside and on the street and my car is black with black interior... and it has been in the 90's all week... hopping in and out of it for short interning errands while trying not to look like a sweaty mess when returning to the office is tricky!  not that anyone is really paying a whole lot of attention to my looks... but i do think if i was dripping sweat on everyone they might take notice!

i was at my local home depot the other day and while there i witnessed at least 10 people walk in and ask where the air conditioners or fans are... sadly home depot was sold out... it made me thankful for my little ac unit... let me tell you, this thing has been a thorn in my side since i moved into my apartment. aesthetically pleasing? it is not. someone years before i moved in had the bright idea of installing it in the middle of my living room wall. i tried to distract from it by hanging brightly colored vintage album covers on that wall but i need to come up with a groovy way to hide it (a future diy!)... but in the meantime i am embracing it for sure! i feel lucky to have one in weather like this!

i am happy to report that auto cad class is done! YAY! and i have been putting it to use in my internship...

just wrapping up my exciting new diy project and will have reveal photos for you on monday or tuesday!

now i'm off to continue the task of sorting through a friends stuff to prepare for next saturday's big yard sale...

so, for those of you just tuning in and wanting to know more about me you can by going here... and if you didn't already know... i created a facebook page... check it out and "like" it! and follow me on twitter

until next time!
