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!

Adventure: Austin City Limits Music Festival (PT 1)

Still working away on some big projects so in the meantime let's flashback to last year's adventure, 2013 ACL Music Festival. Sam's first trip to Austin and my big celebration for a new chapter in my life, it was the perfect excuse to travel and relax. This trip was also our first time using airbnb, staying in a Bambini airstream, trading a rental car for riding bikes throughout the city, first music festival where chairs were allowed in the park (mixed feelings about this one) and venturing to Stubb's. Lots of fun stories to share but for now enjoy these pics. There are so many moments that I'm breaking this adventure into two parts.
