It flew by, stomping on the way

It flew by, stomping on the way
Record attendance (estimated 1.2 million people) welcome our new first family into office
Tension between Israelis and Palestinians continue as Israel invades Gaza, again
Iran opposes their election results in large numbers
Swine Flu takes our world by storm
The King of Pop passes on
The Philippines flood, killing more than 600 people 
I wonder if we'll have a white Christmas in Seattle... NYC will.

New York Times presents The Year in Pictures . Above were my most heart-felt/wrenching moments. I was tempted to post all while sifting through them. 
There's so much tension in the air, I'm excited to toast in the new year--I think I've already mentioned that a few times.
much love,

1st Grade Career Day: My older sister rummaged through my mom's suits and grabbed my pop's briefcase posing to be a lawyer. I opted for my florescent spandix, white leo and turquoise tutu. I wanted to be a ballerina soooo bad. Still kinda do but I'll settle for a tutu at this point. 

Trying to up my craftiness and looking at life through some serious budget goggles, I'm gonna try and DIM it -- do it myself. Wish me luck, I'll be sure to post some creation photos when I'm done.

Gangsta's Life

what's making me move right now...

I'm livin life far from a gangsta, yet I can't help but feel fresh when I listen to this joint. Nothing like a little Nipsey Hussle and Snoop Dogg in the morning to get you dressed.

ugh, this is so sad.

Added to the casualty list of 2009: I.D. magazine. A publication that has inspired so many including myself. The mag came up in conversation at last night's bday/dinner party. Their design review deadline was at midnight and a friend-of-a-friend's project was taking a while to upload for entrance so he had to leave early. It all spawned the praise by the party-goers of those great venues that reach out to the aspiring.

I guess this whole blog thing is bitters
weetness. It's enabled anyone with discipline to share thoughts but in transition has killed some material romanticism... But you can't place blame on anything this year, it's been a crazy ride and I can't wait for 2010. I have one of those tummy-pleasing-sweet-in-the-back-of-the-throat type of feelings. I guess we'll see.
Anyways, RIP I.D. You'll be missed.

keds x opening ceremony

keds x opening ceremony
Grandma Audrey gave me my first pair of keds. They were purple vinyl?... i think...  definitely purple though. Anyways, long story short, keds are an all time classic and oh so comfy. 

Right now, everyone seems to be creating their own rendition or collabing with the classic company. I just got a glance at these Opening Ceremony pony hair edition and thought they were pretty fly. I might just have to update my black canvas ones -- lord knows I need to with all those scuff marks.

much love,

Welcome back, Sade! & thank you!

Feels good to be home for the holidays. The family just moved into a new house, one my parent's have been working on for some time now. Being born in the house prior, it's a little strange coming home to a new pad. But they kept all the mid-century classics I grew up with (barcelona tables, eames lounge & credenza, saarinen tulip bed stands, etc...), so at times it just feels like a fresh paint job, a REALLY nice fresh paint job. 

The feast steamed up the flat. Turkey was moist and golden, mash potatoes were oh so creamy and the brussel sprouts rocked my world (most likely because bacon was involved). My aunt made her sticky rice and cousin brought over salmon -- the cliche is true, no Seattle feast is complete without it. We ate mango pudding and marscarpone cake to celebrate me and my uncle's early-birthday and drowled over the newest baby, Lucianna. It all felt really good. Not one of those forced family gatherings. We really love each other, and I am very thankful. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

love, farisita

sessy gloves

SESSY gloves

Fall is finally coming in San Francisco. Our Indian summer still shines but mis deditos are beginning to freeze on my morning ride to work. In celebration of the season change, I purchased some new sessy gloves. They're not exactly riding gloves, but they're so pretty and match my red vintage bianchi too well. 

I'm going to miss this ride when I move over to the East Bay but your girl needs some space to touch her toes... I hear there's a $1 bike shuttle that'll take you from MacArthur to Transbay, which I'll look into further because BART won't let you take your bike on during the only times you need to. BART is a perfect example on how NOT to do public transportation. Be it it's $7 round-trip daily expense to the carpet flooring and cloth seating -- I don't even want to know what's in there, ugh.

That's it for now, much love,

Apologies for the poor image. I was limited to my iphone and most likely shaking from excitement. But I had to share it, last night I saw ERYKAH BADU!!!

My adoration for her is well known. I think all my closest girlfriends from high school know the ENTIRE Mama's Gun album as it was the only tape I owned (that is after D'angelo's Voodoo was found smashed on the street outside my house -- whoops).

Anyways, beats were BANGIN'!!! I sang along to every classic cut and she sneak peeked her new Cannabinoids joints. Not to mention mama was rockin some fly overalls with YSL black patent leather booties! (you can peep them if you look close... oooo weeee!)

I'm still excited and will be riding off that one for a minute.

much love, farisita
