welcome

 to the colorful journal of Marissa Berrini, creative director, artist and curator living in Los Angeles. Launched in 2010, Marissa's online journal tells of adventures with her husband Sam, their fur kids, the occasional cocktail creation and lots of conversations with inspiring people. This blog serves to celebrate tiny victories, inspiration for those times you're stuck in a rut and bring together a community that wants more than a perfectly curated feed of eye candy. Sometimes you just got to throw it out there and see where it goes!

Music Mania 4 / Halloween Cheap Tricks or Treats

Music Mania 4 / Halloween Cheap Tricks or TreatsThis week's Music Mania is all about Halloween. Perfect timing, right? I couldn't just put all Halloween music because that would be too predictable so I threw in some goose eggs to keep you on your toes. Remember the Thong Song? Talk about scary. We'll be jamming this playlist during our Halloween Bash, along with The Earl Grey Cider, Halloween Candy Corn Mini Doughnuts and Minimalist Baker’s Boozy Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate. Enjoy!

Wondering what the image is above? It's Sam's latest knotty pinewood derby car that he created for Bigfoot Lodge's monthly Knotty Pine race. This bad boy came in 2nd while his 'You Are Here' took 1st place!
