This guy rocks my world....photographically speaking. For some reason I have been digging all this crayola colored hair.

Obree? Aubrie? Obry? Auber?

While out for a late night trip to the brand new Yogurtland that has just planted itself in downtown Burbank (woohoo!!) , me and a friend stopped by the also new Wastland vintage store (woohoo!!) to see what they had. I just happen to flip through a rack of t-shirts and what did I see? Why a fantastic shirt with my name!....well sort of. "AUBERRY" is close enough I guess.

It seems I have always been forced to put up with people spelling and saying my name wrong. I've been called Audrey more times than I can remember, Auburn, Onry, Ashley, Amy, and Auber by some. Well I found this shirt kind of comical since it is a reminder of how often people get my name wrong.

The next morning, on my Starbucks run (while wearing my shirt, and after giving them my credit card with my name printed on it) they went for neither obvious option for spelling.
Point proven.

A Tale of Two Cities.

Since I moved to Los Angeles from Seattle in April, I have noticed many differences in the cultures of the two places. Each has it's ups and downs, and each has its quirks. Here are a few things I have seen and experienced since my migration south.

Fashion) While Seattle tries as hard as it can to look unfashionable, as to make a purposeful statement that they are far too advance and intellectual to care about something so trivial as attire...Los Angeles tries to go above and beyond everyone else by creating over the top style and what some would call "fashion on crack."

Seattle:                                                      Los Angeles:

Favorite Snacks) Seattle is known for its great coffee and cozy coffee shops, unfortunately in LA those don't seem exist...anywhere. Where coffee shops spring up like weeds in the Northwest, the frozen yogurt place is king down here. Delicious...but not quite the same vibe. Sinking into a big comfy couch with a good book and a...tub of frozen yogurt just doesn't cut it. But on a hot day in the valley it can be your salvation!

   Los Angeles:                                                 Seattle:

Literature) In the land of sunshine and surf, reading doesn't seem to be a very popular past time, unless you are standing in the line at Whole Food's reading about Lindsay Lohan or Kate Gossling in US Weekly. I miss second hand book stores and university people with thick glasses who think they are smarter than me.

Los Angeles:                                                           Seattle:

Men) LA is a tricky city. There are so many good looking guys, but most of them and either taken, models, gay, gay models or famous and you will never get close enough to even steal a lock of their hair. There is however a community of gents who are quite radical... the surfers. While in Seattle, most of the men are Microsoft geeks or own their own website...aka pasty computer geeks. And the only thing they are surfing, is the web for pictures of Megan Fox.

Los Angeles:                                                                                                Seattle:

Climate) Well this one is pretty obvious.

For Sale in Los Angeles.

Me and my room mate were out shopping in Studio City and came across a funny scene. These people were trying to get people to adopt puppies... and maybe something more.

My Hair is my Coloring Book


Do you remember taking markers to your hair and coloring in highlights of blue, pink, and green when you were little? Or trying to dye your hair with cool-aid cause your mom wouldn't let you actually dye it. Well... I was flipping through the latest issue of Nylon and saw a wonderful photo of Juergen Teller's, for of course, Marc Jacobs . The model Edie Campell has some fantastic green streaks in her long wavy hair. Now normally this would look crappy and cheap, but done right it is totally rad and, I think, the next trend in hair. We are moving on from the pixie cut... to subtle rainbow bright do's. Jump on the band wagon! (but only those of you who can actually pull of this look...Mom, I'm pretty sure you don't qualify.)
