Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone, sorry for my lack of posts lately. I’ve been so busy and quite frankly didn’t feel I had anything exciting to post. What are you all dressing up as? A bunch of my girlfriends and I are dressing up as Droogs from A Clockwork Orange and wreaking havoc in DTLA. It should be loads of fun, muhahaha!

Oh, and if you are interested there will be a cool Day of the Dead festivity happening in east LA on November 1st! I had the pleasure of designing the poster for Eastside Luv’s annual Dia de Los Dead show. Come and check it out, it should be super cool!

Beginnings

Gosh, the year went by fast! 2013 came and went and although there were some happy times, I am glad to say goodbye to it and begin 2014. It’s funny how we all wait till January to set goals and plan our futures. Shouldn’t we do that throughout the year? All I know is I need and want change, both in my career and in my personal life. Here’s to 2014, a year with no regrets and exciting experiences!!

Btw, here are my fondest December memories in a nutshell (since I never blogged that whole month!).

December

* I just had to add this… Disneyland during the holidays is truly magical and beautiful. I had loads of fun as usual but hated how crowded it was. Anyway, when we were waiting in line at the Matterhorn, we spotted Jason Bateman and his group sneak pass all us fools in line. Then later we spotted Zoe Saldana and her husband do the same. Yes, I know these are the perks of being a celebrity but man does that blow when you’ve been standing in line for 2 hours, yes TWO hours. Jason Bateman refused to look at anyone and I believe it was because of GUILT. I’m also going to add that Jason had a Disneyland escort usher him throughout the park. I mean seriously, I like him and enjoy most of his movies but YOU AIN’T NO BRAD PITT! No one is going to hound you or swarm around you or your family.

Later as we were making our way to Space Mountain my sister and I spotted none other than Steven Yeun of The Walking Dead. That was actually my highlight since I am a huge fan of the show and let me add this too, Steven had NO escort nor did he act like he was better than anyone else. Luv ya Glenn!!

Downton Abbey

Here’s something fun for all you Downton Abbey fanatics out there, I only wished I knew about these sooner:

DowntonAbbeyBingoCards1-2

Are you crazy for Downton Abbey like I am? I usually like to save all my episodes and have a day-long marathon of it but I just couldn’t wait this season. I saw the first half of season 3 and am reserving my remaining episodes for this weekend so I will be ready for the finale this Sunday.

You can also take this quiz to find out which DA couple you are! lol, I was “Matthew & Mary”, which are you?

Catch up with DA this Sunday, I believe they will be playing all episodes of Season 3 leading up to the finale on PBS or you can watch it online.

Weekend Rewinds

From the past two weeks…

It was hot hot hot a couple of weekends ago when I helped out my friend from Peanut Butter Dynamite at the Renegade Craft Fair. I think I devoured 6 of those popsies our two days working at the fair. I was able to do a little shopping for myself on Sunday and got two rad hanging air plants from Bird and Feather, a spine ring from Verameat, and truffle salt.

Check out Miran’s shop, she and her mother make the cutest pillows and rugs you will ever find!

We decided to stay out in LA and not have to deal with driving back and forth from, Long Beach(me) and Santa Ana(Miran). We stayed in a boutique hotel in Downtown and I was pleasantly surprised at how nice and clean the O Hotel was. For just one night it totally met all our expectations. Our room was clean, the staff was soooo nice and friendly, and the restaurant downstairs was actually pretty good. They also have a pretty decent free continental breakfast for those that are wondering.

This weekend was just relaxing. I visited the family, went to the farmer’s market, and did my best rendition of “Michael Phelps” in the pool. Let me just say I have mad respect for all our olympians. I mean I was OUT OF BREATHE after just 2 laps! (and we are talking about small laps, lol!)

and just because he looked soooo darn cute sitting there on my mantle yesterday:

Hocus Pocus

I had the pleasure of being invited to the famous Hollywood Magic Castle last week for my cousins’ 21’st birthday. It was so much fun and I think the last time I was there I was also around 21. The night was filled with much fun and awe. I know it’s all an “illusion” but I cannot figure out how one magician was able to guess the name of my Aunt’s childhood friend or my random pick of a US state. We never told him the answer and he revealed our answers on a piece of folded paper! Amaaaaazing!!

Disney Part 2

I had the pleasure of going back to Disneyland again but this time however I went with some friends and got to go into California Adventure (which I haven’t been since it first opened) and have dinner at the exclusive Club 33.

We started in California Adventure first and since I’ve never been on the Tower of Terror, that was our first ride. Omg, that was sooooo fun but I’m not going to lie, it was pretty scary. One of our bags even flew up in the air as we were free-falling! After that we headed towards A Bug’s Life which was completely charming and cute. The big draw of course was Cars Land which everyone was talking about. I never saw the movie but the area where Cars Land was is reallllllly cool. The main ride was fun but I was really looking at the “fake” desert-like surroundings we were in. It looked so real that I almost believed I was out in the desert!

We had spent over 5 hours at that side of the park that when we finally made it into the main park we were only able to ride a few rides before our dinner reservations.

The dinner itself was good, not spectacular. I wasn’t overly impressed and I have to say our service was not that great. For a place that is so strict with its rules, dress codes, etc, we didn’t even get spoons when our bisque came. Our food was never explained to us (we all decided to go with the 5 course dinner), nor was our table ever cleaned off. My dinner along with two others was cold so we decided to have them warm it up. That took forever and my friend’s dinner was still cold so she sent it back a second time. The manager came by later and apologized for the problems and offered us a souvenir that you can only buy in the restaurant. I never looked in the showcase to see what was being offered but our friend Ken did. When asked what we wanted I thought to myself, “please pick the most expensive thing in the case please please please”. Ken says without missing a beat, “I would like the latte mug”. I wanted to die, a mug?!?! We were being asked on the spot and Ken kept assuring all of us that it was the best thing in the window so we ALL got the mug. As I left the restaurant I looked into the case and saw a pen set for $75, my mug…$25. LOL, oh well at least we got something. I still had a fun time and it was definitely memorable.
