We parked the cars and walked a couple blocks to the PopShop Houston event on Spring Street. I felt like I had stepped into Austin. I’ve never seen so many hipsters in one place in Houston before. The Heights is turning into mini-Austin.
We met Laura, the owner of Birds on a Wire, and I she was very sweet . Laura was a teacher, like Bunmi and I, and we were surprised to see that Birds on a Wire was a non-profit. Head over to her blog to see the story behind her shop (it’s a good one!). Her jewelry display was creative and chic. I loved the necklaces hanging from the branches and the door-knocker necklace.
Outside there were vintage business trailers all over the place.

We stopped by PhotoMoto, a vintage truck with a photo booth set up inside with props included. We paid $5 and got a set of two photo strips.
I stopped in the middle of the street for some jumping pictures. I’m a little rusty.
Special thanks to Bunmi for the great pictures!
This is one of the adventures Tobs and I took a little earlier this year. I finally got around to making the video for it.

I bumped into Lorraine at the Haute Wheels Food Truck Festival!
And I saw this beautiful engine red convertible Mini-Coop there. This is my dream car and I drool every time I see it on the road.
Tobs and I went on another adventure. We went electric bike riding! It was loads of fun. Here are some pics.

Today, after a hard day of PPR test prep, I went to check out High Fashion Home with my friend/co-worker Adrian. High Fashion Home is like, according to Adrian, IKEA-meets- Urban Outfitters. I’m inclined to agree with her. Their fabric store across the street is like a JoAnn’s craft store. As someone who loves interior design, I loved the way they decorated living rooms, couches, and beds with bright fabrics and bold prints. Adrian was having a hard time not drooling too.
I felt like a kid in a toy store. There was so much to see!
I saw cute little armchairs, delectable low beds, and I finally saw the stupendous floating bookshelves I’ve been seeing all over Pinterest. The best part was that everything was all out in the open and you could sit on the furniture to see if you liked it:
It was a great trip. We didn’t buy anything but we sure were inspired to upgrade our living spaces.
Highlight of the trip:
My friend Tobs & I have been jumping all over Houston, visiting new places. We went to Harwin. Fun times!
