Me and my friend Erin (who takes a lot of the photos on this blog) decided to start a new blog together. It's called Violets & Laurel and we are really excited about it. We have a lot of great ideas that we can't wait to share with everyone. That means a few changes for this blog. First of all, I'm going to start doing all my Etsy Everything and style posts over there. This is going to become more of a personal blog. I'll probably have a lot more wish lists and life updates. I'll be posting anything I'm particularly excited about that doesn't really fit the vibe of the shared blog.
So, into some personal stuff!
A few weeks ago I was tattooed by my friend the incredibly talented Briana Sargent from Buju Tattoo. I posted a few pictures of her shop in my San Diego post, here. I just love her shop. I feel like I'm in a fancy candy store when I'm in there. It's so bright and cheery.
The inspiration for this tattoo was a temporary tattoo Rifle Paper & Co designed. I saw it and fell in love. I showed it to Briana and she really liked it too, so then I got it permanently inked on my arm. I just love it, it's so beautiful. I've been really inspired by pretty much everything Rifle Paper & Co have put out for the last few years, so this just fits for me. I had originally wanted a peony, because that was my wedding flower. Buuuut, it kind of looks like a peony, right? It still kind of works.
