Guest Post: Spied in Seattle by Jennifer Young

Posted on: Friday, April 29, 2011

Hey All! We haven't officially met, but I'm Jennifer :). I collaborate with Stephanie behind the scenes to bring you what you see on this blog! I'm a photographer, blogger, and a big fan of Ruby Rose (and crew). I recently spent some time in Seattle and Stephanie asked me to share a bit of what I saw. I loved the simple style and artistic vibe in the city. Enjoy!

The Ruby Review: Soul Surfer

Posted on: Wednesday, April 27, 2011

Soul Surfer Official Movie Poster

Soul Surfer - 3.5 stars

Since I was a little kid, I've heard about the incredibly unfortunate shark attach on Bethany Hamilton. This movie may not have been the best I have ever seen, but it is sure an inspiring story. Starring Anna Sophia Robb as Hamilton, this film shows the life of the girl known for losing her arm to a 14 foot tiger shark. Living in Hawaii, surfing was her life. Most would abandon the sport after losing an arm, seeing it as an impossible task. But Hamilton, a truly brave soul, overcame the challenge and is today one of the top female surfers around. Highlight was the beauty throughout the movie. Not only were the islands lush and pristine, all of the actors looked exactly as dedicated surfers should- very tan and very blond.

Guest post: Little Monsters in L.A. by Yvonne Helm

Here at The Rose, we love our music! We all have strong opinions of who we want to listen to, and who we don't want to listen to. One thing for sure is that we are all gaga for Lady Gaga! Our youngest here at The Rose, Yvonne, a junior at San Luis High (she has amazing style), was the lucky one to be able to see her perform live in L.A....and on Gaga's birthday no less!!!! Such a lucky girl she is. This is her story...


On March 28th Ryan Vasquez and I got the wonderful opportunity to see Lady Gaga at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. We couldn’t believe our luck that we were seeing one of our favorite artists (and Ryan’s number one obsession), but the fact that we saw her on her very own birthday was the cherry on top! Our trip got off to a rather bumpy start once Ryan realized he had forgotten the tickets just as we were approaching Goleta! But as soon as we quickly fetched them back in SLO and hit the road again we were even more excited! We rapidly got dressed in our outfits and after a few sessions of body-paint-splattering we left for the Staples Center. At the entrance there were hundreds of people dressed in the craziest outfits and many paparazzi and news casters! After entering the stadium and taking our seats the show began after an intro by Lady GaGa’s friends The Scissor Sisters. Once they were done everyone screamed as Mother Monster’s silhouette covered the stage. The whole performance was phenomenal and she even vowed to us that she never lip singed. Our favorite part was when she shared a birthday gift with us; she told us about receiving a pair of an original pair of ruby red slippers from the Wizard of Oz film! She gave an inspiring speech about trying out for the part of Dorothy as a young girl but a bully stole the spot, but she celebrated and was grateful that now she was the one with the slippers. It was a ten out of ten show and I wish it never ended!

1. Lockers to organize your life--so many cubbies and a beautiful neutral color. The only problem is, which room will it go in?? So many possibilities.

2. A lovely, fresh bedroom. The perfect little nook to spin some records, talk on the dial phone and dream of what's ahead!

Our friend Amy will be there! This girl can sew (yes, she made that apron)! She sews from the heart and is a true upcycler. Amy takes fabrics from old clothes, sweaters, and re-creates the most amazing pieces. Our personal fave of hers is a cuff bracelet she's designed. It's a beauty. You'll have to come see it for yourself!

She designs and creates color inspired accessories--hair adornments, bags, pins, necklaces, ipad cases (!!!), the list goes on! Our personal fave is her ruffled scarf! Take a peek at her goods here. Oh, and she has a beautiful blog as well!


Last but definitely not least, the Sally Loo's Wholesome Hut will be at the party to help fuel our bellies for a full day of shopping partying!

Sally Loo's is old news on this blog, as we are all fans and frequents of the most beloved café in town! Their acai bowls are to die for (go get one now if you haven't tried it! Seriously.) Healthy, local, organic coffee shop goods and drinks will be served from the hut. You don't want to miss out!!!

The Alameda Flea

Posted on: Tuesday, April 5, 2011

We went to our fave flea market this past Sunday, The Alameda Point Antiques Faire. It takes place the first Sunday of every month. There was so much style and eye candy galore. As always, it is sooo overwhelming when we first arrive with the abundance of things on our mind--coffee, yummy croissants, smalls, furniture, and of course, which way to go, oh my!!
