Five Pinterest DIY Inspirations

Craft Inspiration

One hobby of mine is that I really enjoy making things.  Especially things I see, I start thinking to myself, “I could totally make that!” and sometimes it’s true.  But I think half the fun is the process of deciding on how to execute the idea in a new way.  I usually find these ideas on Pinterest.  Here are some of my favorites, what are your favorite hobbies?

Lazy Afternoon In LA

This weekend I did some exploring in West Hollywood.  I’m pleased to say I found some great hidden gems.  I was also able to go to some sample sales, which is one of my favorite hobbies!   I went to the Faith Connexion and got this great tunic for a great price!

It got me thinking about other places where I love to find fabulous clothes for deep discounts.  I found a website that gives information on sample sales here in LA, it’s called BargainsLA, here is a link.  I know it can be difficult to find sample sales if you don’t live in a major city, so I’m also going to list my favorite online sale sites.



  •                 Has great sales on designer vintage


  •             All the hot brands


  •             All the hot brands plus some designers you may never have heard of


  • This website isn’t as well known so it’s easier to get the pieces you want, before they sell out


  • New to me, but has a bunch of tips on sales going on and places to checkout in LA and NYC


I’ve provided links to all of the sites in this post!


Enjoy a lazy Sunday!
