GIVEAWAY + Happy Things~Guest:Christine/ LAMA Designs


I'm excited to have Christine from LAMA Designs as a guest today.  She will be sharing the things that make her happy along with a fun GIVEAWAY!  I met the lovely Christine while at ALT Summit, and she is a very kind, fun, and happy person.  I love that Christine followed her heart when trying to find what she wanted to do.  "Influenced by her love for design and passion for travel, she decided she would search the world for beautiful objects that were dreamt up and created by others who shared her fanaticism for the fabulous." Then, she created a fun store to share her exotic finds with others!  LAMA Designs means Latin America in the Modern Age. Love her slogan! She also has a great blog here.
The lucky winner of today's giveaway 
will win her choice of the 
blue/green or pink/purple fiesta flags!
Add instant flair year round to any space with these cheerful fiesta flags! Each beautifully designed original pattern is the creative work of designer Pablo Ferraro. Committed to creating environmentally friendly products, Pablo uses 100% cotton that has not been bleached or treated with toxins harmful to the environment. In Pablo's words, "All our designs are handprinted and we work on a small scale to manage a local, environmental and socially responsible company." Fabulous, fun, festive and earth-friendly. It doesn't get much better than that! Length: Approximately 14 Feet
           
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I'm fortunate enough to be living out one of my dream jobs at the moment, owning my own boutique shop! Down the line, I would love to be a stylist on photo shoots all over the world. I hope to eventually make my way back to interior design and perhaps retire as a dog groomer. I have a passion for pooches and products. Put those together and you'll have the amazing dog salon I plan to open someday. I already have a name picked out!
Product you can't live without?
My iPhone for sure. I don't know what I did before I had a smart phone. 
Favorite place you've been? 
The rainforest in Ecuador. It was pure magic. I spent hours walking around with a monkey toddler. We played and ate sugar cane together. I'll never forget what his little hand felt like in mine.
Dream vacation?
Spain! I've always wanted to visit the Southern coastal areas of Spain leading down to Morocco. 
Favorite Restaurant/Food?
I grew up eating a lot of Asian food and I generally prefer it to almost anything else. Thai is a close second to Korean food. I love Korean bbq, tofu soups, and kimchi. 
Favorite TV show?
At the moment, Mad Men. Everything about that show is gorgeous.
Favorite movie?
I'm really into high brow chick flicks. The two that I can watch over and over again are Lost In Translation and Broken English. Every time I'm at home alone, I watch one of the two. 
Favorite treat?
Green tea boba. It's been my favorite treat since I was 15 years old. What is there not to love about sweet tea, tapioca, graphic cups, and giant straws.
How do you like to relax or what is a hobby you enjoy?
I love taking long walks with my dog Miles and my iPod shuffle. Music and Miles are all I need to relax. 
5 LOVES: 
Design Blogs, Technology and Gadgets, Travel, Friends/Family, Music
5 HATES:
Cruelty to animals, Cold weather, A lack of compassion for others, Complacency ,Vertical Blinds
