Grand Opening!

Last night, I opened my first Etsy shop - White Buffalo Trading Co.!  Here's the story behind the name.

Currently, the shop is filled with naturally shed antlers that I've painted in an 'ombre' style.  I'm hoping to get some vintage goodies in here soon, as well!  Here's a preview of what is currently up for sale - I will be adding new styles regularly.  Please let me know if you are interested in special ordering a specific color combo!

I believe I can fly.

While this song title is near and dear to my heart, this movie trailer is giving it a run for its money!   

I Believe I Can Fly (Flight of the Frenchies) is an upcoming documentary showcasing a new fad that combines tight rope walking and base jumping!  This trailer is insane, y'all...absolutely awesome and terrifying at the same time.  I was definitely short of breath by the end of it.

Happy Friday!  Hope this gives you an adventurous attitude for the weekend ahead :).

Linsanity leaves NYC.

I don't comment on sports much here, but this is just too good.

Coming Soon | White Buffalo Trading Co.

I've decided to begin a little side project and open up an Etsy store! The store will be called White Buffalo Trading Co., and I will be selling ombre antlers hand-painted by yours truly.  I chose the name White Buffalo because the antlers come from the Gunnison Valley, where my family has vacationed for years.  In this valley, there used to be a White Buffalo that roamed a local ranch.  I used to look for this buffalo on every drive between Crested Butte and Gunnison. So, it seemed only fitting to make a little tribute to this iconic figure of my youth.

Hope you enjoy the teasers you see above!  I'm hoping to have the store open by the beginning of next week.  And trust me, y'all will be the first to know!  Feel free to comment if there are any special colors you would like to see.

Wedding Hair Round-up

Wedding season is in full effect!  And whether you are a bride or a bridesmaid, you need to have some seriously great hair.  I used to have a go-to blog bookmarked, but now it's gone!  So, I figured that was a sign to do my own collection of inspiration...

First, classy up-dos for those windy outdoor weddings!

And then, some romantic long looks.

Music Mondays (one day late) | Dirty Projectors

Today, the new Dirty Projectors album was released.  The album is entitled Swing Lo Magellan, and it. is. wonderful.  If you enjoyed 2009's Bitte Orca, you will find this album well worth the wait!  Here's the video for the single 'Gun Has No Trigger.'  Enjoy the weird loveliness!

Our First Wedding Anniversary

 Today marks my husband's and my first wedding anniversary.  I am so thankful to have this man in my life, especially over the past year.  This day also just makes me want to go back to Colorado and celebrate with our friends and family all over again!  I love you, Garrett.
