It’s been a bit of a quiet week. I did get to hang with my best friend, Gary, on Wednesday.
We went to dinner and found the People magazine with Saved by the Bell on the cover.
Completely hilariously excited!

On Saturday there was a Warehouse Sale in my town with some awesome
shops giving major discounts!

I was half on the lookout for a fun necklace and half on the lookout for something
just fun. Guess which one I found? And guess where I found it? At the Heliotrope table!

It’s a very grand chandelier! Hehe! I initially wanted this for my car but seeing how
big (well….in relation to my rearview mirror haha) I’ve decided this will go over
my living room in my new apartment. Oh heck I want one for every room!!

Today I went to my sis&bro-in-law’s place to watch their kitty, Gracie Brown. I didn’t even see her!
I hope I was in the right apartment haha. Either way this apartment had the new Ikea Catalog
so I read that and watched the Clarissa Explains It All dvds I brought with me. Called in
for some Mellow Mushroom and did a little laundry as well. Action packed Sunday!

Oh! I’ve been reading about the new Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick in all the new mags,
so I went to Target to check them out. I found one I really liked, Madison Mauve, and with
the $5 gift card I received (from buying a Brita!) a few weeks ago this only cost me 87 cents! I rock!

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?

This is sudden right???

I took inspiration from my favorite episode of Sex and the City, A Woman’s Right to Shoes.
Carrie decides she’s tired of married people getting all the support so she gets engaged
to herself and registers at Manolo Blahnik. I thought that was a fabulous idea…so I’m calling my dating
adventure off and am officially engaged to myself! We’re thrilled. And because I’m me I went to Banana Republic
to buy an engagement ring for my love. I should totally have a party to celebrate haha!

Welcome to…

Filed under: berryland — pandaberry @ 3:30 am

So earlier this week I went to tell the leasing people at
my apartment that I wanted to re-up my lease for another
year. I can’t believe I’ve been here for a year. Craziness.
For the first 8 months I worked 6 days a week so this
was pretty much just where I slept and showered (I didn’t even eat here).
But now that I have a steadier job with hours that rock I
actually live here. Awesome. I guess I should…move in.

When I first got here all I had was an air mattress and a chair
I bought at Target. I lived like that for a few weeks and
then luckily my bed came to live here. Yay! I brought my bookcase
but left my books behind. I eventually bought a couch, computer
table, coffee table and bedside table, all from Ikea of course. But
that’s kinda it. I never painted or put up any artwork, cause
who knew how long I was going to be here? So now that I’m
going to be living here for another year I can start making this
place…wait for it…Berryland!!

Do you know what would truly make Berry and Berryland complete?

Amazing. Also I miss my books. Mommy’s coming booklings!
