MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: JULY 3–9!


Celebrating 4th of July with my family, having some Waldo puzzle evenings, hanging with Gabby poolside, Drag Brunch in West Hollywood, Alyssa visiting, and a HAIRCUT FINALLY!!!!

Enjoy!

Untitled
Morning from South Pas! Having a hard-boiled egg with Tweedy ready to catch any falling bits.

Untitled
A very foggy day

Untitled
Atmospheric. I never want June Gloom to end. (Btw—is “June Gloom” just a Southern California thing? It’s when it gets foggy and sad in the mornings during June, but “burns off” by 1pm the same day and is sunny. Is that a universal weather thing?)

Untitled

Untitled
Today is the day before 4th of July and there’s barely anybody at work. Most people took off Monday, so I had the classroom at the gym to myself.

Untitled
Super casual cuz #spoilers I was in South Pas since Friday and really didn’t bring too many shirt change options.

Untitled
Later that afternoon I went to check out the Rock & Mineral Show that I saw on FB ahha, but nearby at a field there was an event. Went closer to check it out cuz it was people in costume hardcore fighting. Asked around to a few people and learned about the Society for Creative Anachronism.

From their website, “The Society for Creative Anachronism is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. Our “Known World” consists of 20 kingdoms, with over 30,000 members residing in countries around the world. Members, dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, attend events which feature tournaments, royal courts, feasts, dancing, various classes & workshops, and more.”

Untitled
They had Roman gladiators fighting pirates fighting vikings fighting kngihts. And they were using different weapons. Real impressive, especially in the 100 degree heat.

Untitled
Here we go! Main event.

Untitled
So much more crowded than I expected!

Untitled

Untitled
I got a $15 piece of Float Copper — “Torn out of the ground and dragged by a glacier” PRETTY COOL

  1. THAT CAKE! Do you think it would travel well to the UK??

    Your Sarah night sounds ideal. I can’t wait for the new season of Riverdale. That show is so intense and I love ittttt. What do you think they’ve got in store for us?

    That house is gorgeous. Did the owners design and build it themselves?

    How did you resist the ceramics?? I’m a sucker for a pot

    All I can think about now is Spencer from The Hills and his passion for crystals.

    I told you this already, but your haircut looks great!!!!

    1. Considering the cake has been completely eaten…I’d say not well 😦

      I bonded with my teen cousins over Riverdale and for that I am forever grateful. And so obsessed with Jughead omg who can resist a moody writer??! I honestly thought Archie and his dad killed Jason because I find Archie somehow robotic in his face and was like…some shit is going down. I kind of hope the show unravels and becomes an epic multi-billion dollar superhero movie with Betty and Veronica saving the planet??

      They designed it! Part of the house is made with shipping containers.

      Because they were like minimum $80!! Hahah but it was really tempting. I also almost bought a $45 hair pin. It was that kind of day…

      1. Jughead kills me. He’s so ridiculous but also exactly the kind of boy I would have been obsessed with as a teenager 😳. HAH! I wish Archie had been the killer – he’s so bland! I feel like all his friends are dealing with massive problems and he’s just moping about his dad not being supportive of his music… only his dad is super supportive of his music SO ARCHIE YOU HAVE NO PROBLEMS. Aside from that affair with the teacher that everyone just forgot about…
        Apparently they might introduce Sabrina the Teenage Witch because she lives in the town across from Riverdale?? I feel like with the Blossom’s high gothic aesthetic we need some vampire-slaying, demon-hunting developments too.
        The completely unsubtle literary references are great. I might have to start drinking every time they reference Truman Capote, only I’m not sure my liver would be up with it

  2. Love your new haircut, it reminds me of your mum’s (in a good way, it suits you both). I have a group of students who collect gems and go to gem shows all around the area, so it was a nice bit of serendipity. Thanks for sharing you day.

  3. Love your haircut, very Amelie! 🙂 And I love-hate riverdale haha, although I must admit those last two episodes were so thrilling!
