IKEA Raskog Cart in Every Room

I have this cart at home and have been slightly obsessed. To top that off I got an email today on a few DIY projects and in it were “10 Different Ways to Use the Cart” Since I read the article I have been on Pinterest looking at how everyone uses it and now I want more!! LOL I have been in the hunt for the light blue color ( I own the Ivory) but looking at these hacks it makes me want to purchase them and just paint them myself!
Personally I use it to keep all my YouTube/Camera gear on there. Keep the top open to use as a table, that way I can have it all there and pick up from it while I shoot. 2nd row are my camera’s and cords, mics, batteries and memory cards. Bottom row I keep for all the extension cords, plugs and all the bulkier things. Not as organized as I want, but it works for now.
Here I found some idea’s that I want to try myself and hopefully it will inspire you to get one!

If you are a crafter like me then maybe a cart to keep all your papers, washi tape and all the other things inbetween!
More on how she organizes on her blog HERE

Heck! Paint it black and make it into a roll around BAR! More HERE.

Always a great touch to store your european bottled water and fresh fruit on a cart in your kitchen!Blog HERE

Plants! Such a good idea to have them on wheels. That way you can let them sunbathe or re-arrange the room whenever you want!

This maybe a real thing for me….using it in the future nursery.Thinking of shoes on bottom and diapers on top maybe??

How would you use the Ikea Raskog Cart? Idea’s are WIDE open!!

Package Junkie

Beauty products I usually tend to buy start off by the look. I know…I know… it sound’s shallow (don’t judge a book by its cover)..but if it looks good on your counter then it has too look good on you!…right?
And IF it doesn’t work out …then I guess I can use it as an Instagram prop! lol
Here are some items that just came out or are about to, that I am obsessed with the packaging and look. I want to purchase it all!!!…but I am stopping myself and waiting to hear what other users think about them. soooooo if you have used any of them…please leave me feed back! I REALLY wanna know!

If you know the awesome blog Into the Gloss, then you probably know who created this beautiful AND pink skin care line. Ugh Can it get any cuter?! AND I have heard great things!! They just came out with two new facemasks~ Put it on the #GottaHaveIt list!


R + Co
If you want to part of the cool kids, this is for you! I mean…..each and every product looks like a modern art piece and you can possibly purchase it at the MOCA store! Plus if you swing by their site….it’s even cooler. Each page and the details and color really is like you stepped into a museum. I love everything about it, except that I haven’t tried it yet! Where do I start????!!


Death Valley Dry Shampoo

Mannequin Style Paste

Outer Space flexible Hairspray

The face oil that started it all. I remember almost 10 years back when I first heard about the line and how amazing it was but it was no where to be found. So popular that you couldn’t get your paws on them. I now spot them more and more in the independently owned boutiques and am tempted to buy…and then it goes back to …which one? lol
Rodin Face Oil

Hand Cream

I can keep going on for a while with this list, but I am going to stop there for today. Maybe I will make another post on beautiful products we need to have, even if they are props! (joking…I can’t afford that…or should I ?)

Introducing 6-8

Screenshot 2015-03-04 22.10.26

For the past 6 months my friend and I have been working on a new line 6-8.
(six to eight) It really happened in a way un-intentionally but it also feels like it was MEANT to happen.
Previously I had a clothing line , Monn’Amur. Then I went into making scarves, F&J. Then my last adventure was with AHNIIMURA. We got those tee shirts on Kim Kardashian, Halle Berry, Rachel Bilson and the list goes on. But it was also a part of the whole collapse of the economy and my showroom was having a hard time, stores weren’t ordering as much and we closed 5, almost 6 years ago.

Now, I am off onto a new venture!My friend Tomo’s favorite number is ‘6’ and mine is ‘8’ and thats how we came up with the name. Then we also thought “We both are freelancers, but it is full time, so the only time we would really have time to work on this was from 6-8!” haha

The site went up yesterday and we are currently selling in Japan only. We plan to put up a shop online soon! Will keep you updated!
AND we are pushing onto getting stores in LA too~! Keep your fingers crossed!! No showroom here, right now we are doing everything direct!Even all our production for this is here in Sunny LA! Eeeek! more work for us, but it feels good having control over it all.

Hope you will click on the site and take a peek!

Its sooo brand new, we would love to hear what you think of it all!!

For your Friendship Bracelets

I just finished a Heart Friendship Bracelet workshop with UO Space15Twenty tonight. I was lucky enough to host it and hang out with some amazing crafty people!

I got to show them how to make these cuties (I plan to make a video soon) When I was practicing these myself I thought it would be nice to have a card to go with it that said something that you could gift to a friend.
SOOOO I decided to make it!
I have made three printouts for you today, for free! So I hope you print it out and give it a try. It doesnt have to be for bracelets, you can stick candy, photos? Memories? Anything you want、really !

Thank you again to everyone who came out!! You guys are awesome sauce!!
