I have to take a minute to give my awesome wife Annie and the start of her company... Jane Hudson Designs. I took some time to shoot her doing work. Jane Hudson Designs specializes in wedding invitations and cake toppers... Hope you enjoy... but first, check out her website:
I refuse to be what everyone says I am... so I shall become... the ANTI-MALL!
All jokes aside, I had a chance to visit the anti-mall in costa mesa (?). Not sure how I ended up here, but it was a pretty awesome experience. I've never gravitated towards the title of "hipster", but i've always been fascinated with the style and culture of what is "hipster". The anti-mall was a great spot to shop, to look at style, products, knick knacks, and just things that you don't see everyday... Here are some photos from my adventure!!!
Anytime a shopping area has a used record store... I automatically fall in LOVE! So many great records to choose from, and the set up was pretty schnazzy!
Only in California.
There it is... go check out the anti mall if you have a chance... it's a fun and refreshing scene that nothing like your conventional mall -- ...and I'm guessing that's what they were going for!
Several weeks ago when I brought my family to Dana Point on my wife's birthday, we stumbled across this very chic cafe near Dana Point Harbor. "What a Dish Cafe" was the perfect place to have some serious downtime with my family over a flavorful breakfast, my wife and I tried different variations of eggs benedict that the cafe offered while my kids shared a sausage and pancake breakfast.
What I didn't expect after stepping into this place was that they share space with a somewhat similar small business called "It's All About the Cake", and they specialize in, you guessed it... cakes! Take a look into our experience at this very special small and local business and feel free to check them out on the links provided below! Cheers!
A BIG shout out to our friends over at Smitten on Paper. This past Saturday I had the wonderful opportunity to meet the Smitten on Paper folks at a bridal expo. Needless to say, they are a stylin' and chic company that provides lots of lovely knick knacks for every occasion. Check out some awesome pics I got from their booth at the expo, like them on facebook, and let them help you make your next event beautiful and charming.
