Always remember to #livevividly...

Monday, September 30, 2013


These German festivals, tout le monde, I tell you, never cease to amaze me.  Today, was a truly unique experience.  We visited the Gartenshau, which is a big park in town that happens to have a number of to-scale dinosaur statues.  Random?  Yes.  Do I love it?  Yes.

I love it even more because the garden also had a Wild West themed pumpkin festival going on.  A few local artists got into cahoots and made zillions of Western expansion-themed installations made entirely from pumpkins, gourds, and hand-carved wood!  Pretty cool, eh?

And not to be outdone by this unique experience, I had to wear something unique.  I sported my Golden Gate tank by Lani Woods from Vividly.  I own number 4 out of 100 limited-edition tanks (woot, woot!).  Vividly is super cool because they team up with artists and screen print that art onto 100% silk crepe de chine so you are literally wearing art!  The back of the tank is 100% bamboo and is SO soft that Soldier Boy couldn't stop commenting on it!  Vividly wants to offer ya'll a 20% discount on any of their made-to-order pieces with the code BBREADER2901!  Check them out! Mine is only one of a zillion uber original designs and their new line was just released!

... in case you were wondering, the duck face is out.  It's all about the diplodocus face this season!

    1. Te he! I wanted to be Paris Hilton when I was in high school (about a decade ago!). In college, people thought I looked like her, as well, but I haven't gotten it in a while!

    1. I'm obsessed with dinosaurs! It was so funny to drive past this park the first time I visited Soldier Boy in Germany! I was surprised to see a brontosaurus staring at me from the highway!
