I'm Farra! Welcome to my blog and thanks for reading! I currently reside in San Diego, and love living here, and I never want to leave! Besides being a wife to my husband, and a mommy to my son who will be turning 1 in March, I am also a part time counselor to adults with developmental disabilities. I have been working in this field for almost 10 years and besides finding it rewarding, I actually really love what I do, and knowing that I can help make a difference for these people. In addition, I recently started my little etsy shop, Bohemian Honey Boutique, and you can read more about that, here!
When I have free time I like to read, bake, shop. I make serious attempts to go to yoga and pilates, but it doesn't always happen, because sometimes playing with my son on the floor sounds like so much more fun! I love decor from India and Morocco. Our home we purchased in May 2011 reflects that style. I like spending a good portion of time on Facebook, and Pinterest is starting to become a daily ritual, to the point my husband walks in the room and says, "Pinterest??? Again???". I shop at Costco, A LOT. I dream of having a closet just like Carrie Bradshaw's, but mine would be filled with beautiful clothing from Free People and Anthropologie. I love watching reality tv, and I know it is probably slowly melting my brain.
So, as I was saying above, I have a brand new etsy shop called, Bohemian Honey Boutique.
I mostly sell jewelry that I like to refer to as, 'bohemian chic'. I do plan to carry home accessories, like wine charms, and other fun things! If you like Anthropologie and Free people, I think you will like my shop!
How did I decide to open up an etsy shop??
Believe it or not, kids? I was inspired by a bag of fabric scraps. Um, yeah I am totally aware they have no relation. At all. Whatsoever. Basically, I bought a bag of fabric scraps thinking I could do something super cool with them! Well, then that got me thinking how much I used to love making jewelry, and why I don't do it anymore? So, I started buying supplies, and began creating! I love making jewelry! It is so much fun and is actually therapeutic to me! I couldn't possibly wear everything I make, so selling them and hoping other people would enjoy my pieces would make me extremely happy!
A few random facts about me:
+ I grew up in a little town called Whittier, in CA. It's in between LA and The OC.
+ I have played the piano for years, but cannot read music anymore. Ask me to play any song, and I can pretty much figure it out. Maybe there's a career for me in a dueling piano bar? Nah....
+ I taught myself how to play the guitar
+ I am allergic to olive trees, but not olives
+ I LOVE making lists for myself. When I cross things off, I feel like I actually accomplished something!
+ When I was 16, my Dad and I restored my first car together, my 1965 Ford Mustang. Yep, I can work on cars. I am very proud of this!
+ I refer to my birds, as my first children or my feather-babies. Bonsai is a Turquoise Green Cheek Conure, and Fletcher is a White and grey Cockatiel, who I taught to whistle 'The Andy Griffith Show' theme song!
+ My favorite tv shows will probably always be I Love Lucy, and Friends
+ I can tie a cherry stem in a knot with my toungue
+ My favorite holiday is Independence Day. I love fireworks and celebrating our beautiful country.
I know you may feel that this is kind of brief (NOT!!!!), but you'll learn a ton more about me by reading my blog! Thanks for taking a look!
