Have You Heard of My Religion?

I love religions. Each one is completely unique and beautiful. I've been fascinated by it since about forever and I just recently started to collect religious centered jewelry. I'm always on the look out for new pieces, so let me know if you have seen any neat pieces lately!

Saraswati Pendant (this one was hard to identify, I could be wrong)

Vintage Sunday School Bracelet With Ten Commandments

Buddha Pendant

Shiva Pendant

Tomorrow I leave for some grand camping in the woods with friends. I'm not really what you'd call a "nature fanatic", but I'm excited to go boating,snack on smores and play Uno till 1 AM. Not so much about the 2 minute showers, if I'm lucky. But I will totally be quoting the Brady Bunch (from the "A Camping We Will Go episode") And yes, I have memorized those episodes (it had 2 parts! Cause everyone knows that you can't explain that kind of plot line in just one measly 1/2 hour) Be back on Friday!


Golden Calf

Currently (Re)Watching: Arrested Development, the one where Will Arnett's puppet, Franklin, testifies at the fake trial. I swear I am in love with that man. Him and Andy Samberg are totally my top 2 in people to hang out with if stranded on desert island (yes, I actually do have a list).

ps: I set up an email account for this blog! It's goldenxcalf@live.com Feel free to email me tips,tricks,questions,comments or just to chat cupcakes (or anything else cool, of course!).

Feathered Friends

I'm just gonna admit it, I love Katy Perry. I just do. No excuses. What I especially love about her is the AMAZING 1940's hair accessories she wears all over town. I have a feeling that stores are beginning to taking notice and soon these feathered hair clips will replace those Gossip Girl inspired bow headbands that are beginning to clutter up our closets. Enjoy!

Twists and Turns In Every Sort of Way!

Gah, San Francisco was a major fail. We literally turned right back around as soon as we got there, due to a family emergency. Oh well, those things happen. I'll just have to do a make up trip ASAP.
Normally, I try to stay away from posting my mom's work,just cause I think it's just kinda weird to, but this one was just too good to pass up!!! In case y'all don't know, she's an accessories designer known as Jamie Noel (<- link to her shop on etsy). She normally makes pins and stuff like that, which isn't my style, but this adorable headband is totally me.

It's made with silver wire and features 3 different acrobats. I got SO many compliments on it and it's basically part of my summer wardrobe now. Click here for more info about it.

And yes, that is my Gossip Girl inspired dress I'm wearing in that picture. I was a bit nervous about ordering it online, but it fit perfectly, as was surprisingly comfortable.

June 19 can't come fast enough.

I Left My Heart...

Just finished reading this. Pretty good and super easy to read. Plus it's about the Islamic Revolution, so you'll look all worldly and socially conscious while reading this at the beach while everyone else is getting their Danielle Steel fix.
3 out of 5 Golden Calves
I'm off to San Francisco this weekend, so farewell for now. Hope everyone has a lovely weekend and an awesome Father's Day.
Hopefully I'll have some excellent things to post on when I come back.

Pretty Fly

Damn Fred Flare, why do you have to make so many adorable things for me to drool over? I could get my 60's stewardess on in this lovely frock. All I need is a pillbox hat and my handy refreshment cart.
Coffee or tea?
