The Globe Hunt

vintage world globe

What was once the globe hunt of 2010 turned into the globe hunt of 2011 and THEN the globe hunt of 2012.  That’s a lot of globe hunting.  But holy moly pants, I found one.

I had lots of requirements for my world globe, which is probably why it took so long to find.  First, it needed to be that aqua shade of blue, as seen above.  Then I needed a crack- and ripped-free globe body.  I also appreciated a little outdated world map to up it’s vintage factor.  Let me tell you, all these requirements combined are hard to come by.  But the most difficult aspect of globe hunting is the stand it rests on.  Most of them look super cheap and crappy.  It needed to, at the very least, LOOK like it wasn’t made of cheap plastic.

So after many years of searching, I found the perfect one and for the cheapest price I’ve come across so far ($25) at the Rose Bowl Flea Market.  That’s a win-win in my book.

ALERT: Total unrelated story ahead and only read if you are a rapid Hunger Games fan:
So on Monday, this little lady was able to go to the Hunger Games premiere with work – yahoo!!  Wanted to let you know that the movie was WONDERFUL and it does the book a great justice.  Absolutely amazing.  I was laughing, crying, gasping, Team Gale-ing, then Team Peeta-ing, then back to Team Gale at the after-party, etc., etc.

Not that this movie needs any help at all gathering moviegoers, but honestly, GO see it.  Stanley Tucci and Lenny Kravitz alone are reasons why you must go see it.  Happy Hunger Games!!

Friday Love List

friday love list

You guys, I finally broke down and bought a good camera.  It was a pretty penny.  And by pretty penny, I mean I have no money left.  But it was worth it.  We’re best friends now.  Ain’t it real pretty??  So number uno on my love this week is (obvs):

  • My first born child, my new Canon 60D.  Not going to lie, I wanted the 5D.  Couldn’t afford that puppy so I decided on the 7D.  Hmm, couldn’t afford that guy either.  So now we’re at 60D and I’m happier than ever!!
  • My little old roommate (aka my boyfriend of 6 years, whoa…) is  turning 25 years old this weekend!  I have some surprises up my sleeve for him (and no, it’s not a puppy, don’t get your hopes up) so hopefully it’s a good one!
  • LOVING the new issue of STYLED mag.  So good!  I’m sort of addicted to online magazines, FYI.
  • I’ve been searching the fleas high and low for the perfect world globe.  And sure, I see millions of them but not the perfect one (mini-sized and a bright aqua blue).  But OF COURSE, the exact one I want shows up on Urban Outfitters.  Would that be a totes cop-out if I buy it?  Or should I continue searching the fleas…what say you?
Happy weekend!!  Sidenote, 4-day weeks are kind of the best, am I right?
