ramblin' rose

a random iPhone picture. I still see her baby face in this photo {cheeks!}
I can't believe tomorrow is august 1. what? i have been without a computer for awhile so I haven't been able to download photos from my camera..and don't have time to download elsewhere. hopefully this situation will change soon, since I have a lot of cool stuff to share with you all. 
I signed up to be a vendor at a local market in mid august and still haven't decided exactly what I'm going to hustle. I'm super stoked to be doing it. Hopefully it won't be a full on disaster. 
And I finally went thrifting today. It's been....awhile. I bought a whole lotta denim to beat up, cut up, and run over with my truck because I need some new cut offs. you gotta do what you gotta do :)

what lula ate /2

Ask anyone in the lula haus what our favorite meal is and pretty much all involved will say pizza. Now, that being said, the girls and I are very particular to crusts and toppings. Basically, we like a super thin crust, pesto sauce, (sometimes that's it), and usually spinach, tomatoes, peppers, onions, and a little cheese. And for a family that seems to live life 100 km an hour, supper time is always way too rushed (something we need to change), so we have come up with a fast and easy and somewhat healthy meal. here's what you need:
Pizza crust: When we don't make our own crust, we buy a package of thin crusts from the local supermarket who makes them in their bakery. Obviously not as fresh as home made but way better than pre packaged and really yummy.
Pesto: made with basil NOT arugula and just lightly spread on crust.
Toppings: To be honest, we sometimes don't even put toppings on and eat the pizza with just pesto but usually it's spinach and a tomato and a little bit of cheese.
Cook at 400 for about 10 minutes straight on the oven rack.
You are done.

I'm stoked my kids eat this and have a huge love of veggies on their food pallet. I don't consider this too carb heavy as the crust is crazy thin. It's mostly veggies with a bit of olive oil and cheese. A perfect meal for your little athlete. Served with a glass of half skim milk and half chocolate milk. <--- important protein recovery after a hard workout.

My vibe my life

My vibe my life

Pretty much all I wear in July and August.. The perfect tee from midnight rider with some beat up cut offs and converse. I don't wear a lot of jewellery but I like to add a cool piece to my outfit. This necklace is from heyoka leather. A wallet ( purses and bags annoy me when it's hot) and my glasses. Simple and affordable.

I have been getting the urge to open a pop up shop of some sort and/or hustle my wares from market to market. Of course, nothing has been thought out about this. Which is how things go at the lula haus. So we'll see what happens..

mathematics 101

All above photos taken with my iPhone.
It took a few runs of the hearts to get a good one, as seen in the middle photo

sometimes happy hearts and polka dots are the way to go. the dresses are a limited run and available at one small room in squamish. I am heavily in love with accessories and printing at the moment and that's why all dresses i'm making right now is limited... the totes are something of an on going thing. These are also available at one small room or you can email me --> lulahoney@gmail.com to order one. $14 cad. 
It feels good to be back in the hustle. I have bills to pay, mouths to feed, and a monthly gymnastics bill that would make your head spin...just doing what I can to support my sweet fam.

wolf packs and set backs

a peek at Carmen's creative process. she has been busy drawing more wolves. i had mentioned earlier that we are collaborating on a project and i thought i would share more on this.
i have been wanting to get into printing {on paper} lately and thought this would be the perfect way to start. we have decided to make a few cards with these wolves and see where it goes...right now we are drawing together and figuring out card stock, that type of thing. It's been super cool and fun to work as a team with her.

i also ran into a few setbacks with my other project i have been working on (the one I wrote about in my last post with the bidniss plan, etc) which is making me want to shelve the whole thing for now. and not because I'm giving up. it's just not fulfilling creatively and right now i just want to create art. so i made the decision to put this less creative project on hold for now.

let's go honky tonkin' ya'll

that farm life tho | a few pictures:
carmen showing me what she thinks of selfies...
lola being lola.
ice cream for days.
flowers. my new jam.
i love god and be kind graffiti.
carmen finding a sliver of shade in this heat. just looking at all that hair is making me sweat..

today it was back to gym for lola, back to the insanity of driving into the city five days a week. but she's happy which makes me happy. carmen is on a wait list for horse riding lessons and we are trying to figure out swimming lessons to coincide with Lola's training in the city. and both are just stoked to play on the trampoline and hit the beach in this h e a t. 

and i have been working on a project i had briefly mentioned earlier. it isn't the most creative venture but definitely one that is a passion of mine. hint: sports|kids|youth|fashion.. i wrote a small bidniss plan, learning everything as i go, while banging my head against a wall, and hopefully will launch in the fall.

and and, i am getting things ready for my other, more creative project: lone wolf collective. more on that later.

this summer is going to be good.

my vibe my life

my vibe my life

i recently purchased this pullover and i cannot wait to get my hands on it. it's the type of thing that will work to throw on going to the gym and then out with friends or my husband. slip it over this tank and shorts and my fitbit to an exercise class and then after the workout, slip off the sweaty tank and sports bra and throw the sweater on over these jeans and shoes and pull it all together with a dab of red lipstick
