Party @ Heliotrope!

Filed under: berryland, shop til i drop — pandaberry @ 1:25 pm

I woke up this morning, checked my email and saw that my
favorite store in the galaxy, Heliotrope, accepted my friend request on Facebook
AND they were having a party tonight. AND the party was for the release of George Skaroulis‘s new album.
The spa I work at almost exclusively plays his albums! How awesome, I am so there!

I went to work, came home, ate pizza (mmm), took a shower, danced
to Kylie and then it was party time. Here’s me getting excited in advance:

this just makes me happy

gotta always say hello to henry!

loved these notebooks, especially the one with the lion

amazing scad plates! shana from JEM so would’ve eaten off these


the always sweet Tommy. owner and knower of gnome stuff, which is extremely handy.

how awesome is this? totally reminds me of my friend Kaira, she so needs this.

Chewable mustaches next to the compacts? Brilliant.

one of each, please!

Mushroom housewares!!

oh hello!

so pretty!

I love how much Charley Harper items they have, I love his geometric shapes and colors!

Need the painting and the chandelier!~

and the owl!

As I took a break, my picture taking finger was ow-ing, so I was able to talk
to Tommy, Marc and Jessica. Of course owning a place like this means they’re
as kick ass as I would’ve imagined. Our sophisticated conversation ranged from
Pee-Wee’s Playhouse (and my search for the perfect chairy for my home), Prince,
Jem and the Holograms, Etsy and Youngblood Gallery, Flying Monkeys throwing poo
at the Cowardly Lion haha. Jessica and I were talking about blogs when she pulled
mine up and saw my last post drooling over the Pantone mugs. So she told me to
take one. What??? Is that like the most out of blue, awesome thing ever? How do you
pick a color? The seafoamy green? Ooh the gray?? No the purple! Wait which purple?
I finally decided on Pantone 520 C. Also known as Grape Juice/Platform Shoes.

How gorgeous??

I immediately washed it and made tea haha! Then my phone rang…

Oh it’s Marilyn, she wants to hang with me.

So another awesome bash and now an amazingly sweet present! Fabulous night, no?

Traveling Wilburys!

Filed under: music — pandaberry @ 5:50 am

So I’m packing up my place, getting ready to move to
a new Berryland and as I go through all of my odd belongings
and putting them into weird groups there’s only one band I can be
listening to-The Traveling Wilburys. If you’ve never had the pleasure
please oh please let me introduce you to the best spontaneous rock band
ever put together.

Made from unbelievable music royalty we have George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne.
How did these people get together?? Basically George Harrison needed to write a b-side
for a single he was putting out, went to dinner with Jeff and Roy and asked if they would
help. They said cool, they asked Bob Dylan if they could use his studio and he said cool.
Well George’s guitar was at Tom Petty’s house so Tom tagged along.They all went into the studio and totally
goofed around and accidentally wrote one of the cutest songs ever.

And with that the Wilbury’s were born. You can get the lovely story in their own words here at their website!

They made two albums Vol 1 & Vol 3 and they’re both so much fun. You can totally feel how
much fun they had just jamming together. I just discovered all of their videos-they’re as random
and cute as this band. You can see them at Make sure you check out End of the Line,
Roy Orbison had died before they made the video so when it’s his turn to sing they have a rocking
chair moving with his guitar and picture, totally tear worthy and sweet.

So back to packing and having a blast with Otis, Nelson, Lucky, Charlie T. Jr and Lefty Wilbury.

A Big Decision

Filed under: Uncategorized — pandaberry @ 2:30 am

Well the day before I was to re-up my lease I went to dinner
with the lovely Katy who told me the apartment across from
her was open. Um getting to live across the hall from one of my
favorite people?? And I would upgrade from a studio to a one bedroom??
And it’s $40 less than I’m paying now?? And it’s only 10 minutes from work??

Well as awesome as that would be the reality is that it would cost
me (and my parents cause they’re the sweetest humans on earth)
$2,000. And I would need that $2,000 by the end of this month. GULP.
What was going to happen??

At first I was nervous!

Then the thought of all that money gave me a headache!

And then we decided to do it!!! The first choice we’ve made as a couple!!

So in about a month and a half I’ll be off to a new adventure!
