Over the last year, paleo has become much more than a dietary lifestyle for me. I am working towards applying the concept of whole living to all aspects of my life, be it making beauty products, being environmental conscious, composting, or my latest hobby – sewing. I think it would be great to reuse stuff around my house, and make things such as these sock monsters … They are so freakin cute! I think they will especially make great gifts for my girlfriends that are soon expecting babies!
We had the best girls day this past weekend … I started the morning off with brunch at Mike & Anne’s in South Pasadena with my lovely girlfriends, Kim & Bronwen. The food was fantastic, and they had some great paleo options – But, I forgot to take pictures :(. Basically, I had an omelet with tons of veggies, bacon, & avo. Kim had the Corned Beef Hash … which was incredible! We then walked over to Common Thread Studio, where we took our introduction to sewing class. Jin, the owner/teacher was so much fun – she was very knowledgeable about sewing, incredibly patient, and had great energy. And the ambiance of her studio/shop was so cute & modern. It just added to the super fun girls day we had! She taught her class in a round table setting with only 5-6 students at time. Since, we are all new to sewing, we took the introduction class, so we could really get the basic techniques down. Now time to start making stuff, before I forget everything she taught us!
