Happy Sunday Funday! I’m packed up, fueled up, watered up and ready to hit the road.

The MAGIC trade show is happening next week in Las Vegas and I’ll be buying fall and holiday merchandise for Roadkill Ranch & Boutique. Yep, I’m heading into 120 degrees weather to buy sweaters and jackets. Yay me!

I won’t be blogging next week, because I’m going to be so busy having fun (I mean working). But I promise to come back with a full fashion report and lots of stories.

Check out our insatgram account @Roadkill_ranch for up-to-the-minute show excitement and more.

I hope everyone has a great week. Stay cool and stay stylish!

Fullerton Fireworks

fire1photo

The city of Fullerton has lifted the 22 year old ban on fireworks, and I am so excited! For years, we’ve been limited to snakes and sparklers and were forced to leave our BBQ’s and family gatherings in pursuit of surrounding cities that had sky performances. But now, thanks to last years ballot results, we can legally play with fire and explosives just like our neighboring cities.

It’s going to be a great day and we’ve already supported Fullerton High School by buying some fireworks. (IFL!) We’ve closed the boutique today in honor of Independence Day and are ready to celebrate!

Fullerton will be on a 2 year trial period, so please blow things up responsibly. (It’s what our forefathers would have wanted.) Do not hold the explosives in your hands while igniting and do not light under trees or anything else that may catch on fire. Make sure you have a hose handy (just in case of roaming sparks) and don’t misuse the privilege by lighting firecrackers in gas tanks or on the porches of people you do not like.

Happy Birthday America! And congratulations Fullerton for getting your privileges back. A friend of mine posted this Joe Dirt fireworks scene the other day on Facebook, it’s classic. I’ve attached it for your viewing pleasure as well.

Happy 4th!

Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever
I really just want to get in my car and drive and drive and drive until I reach a  secluded cabin in the mountains where I can escape for a few days. I’m craving cozy sweaters, good coffee and a nice warm fireplace where I can sit and empty my brain into my journal.
I’m sure being locked up with my good old-fashioned friends “Paper” and “Pen” would do me a great deal of good. Since I own a boutique, that’s not going to happen this month, so I created this collage with Polyvore instead. There’s always January (unless the Mayans were right), so I’ll keep this “time away” goal close to heart.
I hope everyone has a productive day.
And remember to stay stylish!

Crazy Catalogue Items

Neiman Marcus has just released their Holiday Catalogue and some of the “luxury” items are out-of-control!

Featured for $150,000, you can own a Bulleit Frontier Whiskey Woody-Tailgate Trailer. It comes complete with a radical sound system (including a flat screen TV), and a fully stocked bar. Tailgating never looked so good!

Or, for all of those times when you belted out Annie tunes in your bedroom without anyone discovering your raw talent, now is your chance to shine. For a mere $30,000, you can actually star on Broadway in “Annie: The Musical”. Wow! I guess the sun really will come out tomorrow!

And, just incase your hens aren’t being pampered enough, this luxury hen house (inspired by France’s Versailles palace)  can be yours for only $100,000. I’m sure the hens will appreciate the library and the crystal chandeliers.

Well, this could work to my advantage. I’ll beg my husband for the trailer and when he says no, I’ll start crying and insist on the once-in-a-lifetime chance to star on Broadway as Annie. After he tries to talk some financial sense into me, I’ll calm down and agree with him. Then I’ll let him know that I’ll be happy with just a new iPhone5, a new iPad and a new Louis Vuitton bag. It should work like a charm. Thanks Neiman Marcus!
