If my eyes burn after using Proactive…
does that mean it’s working…?

let them eat cake

by on Jan.31, 2012, under Uncategorized

I traveled to Washington DC a while back for some super serious business. I’ve been before and while there I felt the need to take in some sights and put some knowledge into by brain, if for nothing else than to pull out some interesting factoid if I’m ever in a desperately boring conversation at a cocktail party.
Anywhoo, one place I visited was THE National Natural History Museum. It’s the museum that has really neat stuff like a giant squid, a couple of real mummies, and an extensive taxidermy collection, just to name a few things.
It also has these suckers…diamond earrings once owned my the former French Queen Marie Antoinette, who was famously guillotined.

Pretty amazing right?!

Let them eat cake, 20.34 carats of cake.

Etta James

by on Jan.24, 2012, under Change, people we like

Sadly Ms. Etta James died last Friday. She had such a dynamic voice and style that she couldn’t be boxed in by any specific genre, but suffice to say we love her rough n tumble bluesy voice and elegance!
Her smooth voice only gave hints of her colorful life. Her story will continue to translate thru her music….we also love that she was a Los Angeles native (woo woo).
Check her out…

Train stations are for crazy people

by on Jan.16, 2012, under Uncategorized

While recently waiting at LA’s Union Station for my southbound Surfliner train, I witnessed quite a few mentally ill people.
I was sitting across from a woman yelling stuff about being a cat with long red sharp nails, a man (again yelling) about godly type things and another man mumbling about who knows what to himself.
It saddened me to see these folks displaced by our country’s lack of placement for them, I’m pretty sure they don’t belong in train stations unless they’re really traveling.
And I also wonder why yelling is the default volume for them…

Salty, briney air only means one thing in southern cal…waves. Water temp is cold and skies are a little hazy but everyone is beach bound. All the buzz has us SUPER excited about previewing summer collections-let’s face it-summer rules!!

For Real?!

by on Jan.06, 2012, under Uncategorized


Why the Beibs has a scent is really beyond me and so is the fact that girls 5yo to 17yo are the ones buying it. Also strange is that it’s called “someday”- yah right, “someday” you’ll have him-keep dreaming…
Really what it comes down to is that, this so called scent really smells like cotton candy mixed with marshmallows. Read: SUGAR
So it tricks the brain into maintaining those so sweet thoughts of the Beibs. Just what the girls want.
Isn’t being from Canada enough?

Time to get serious

by on Jan.03, 2012, under Uncategorized

So it’s a “new year” and time to implement all our resolutions…or as i like to say it’s “time to get serious”. Getting serious can be done anytime of the year, it’s not just for a new year. I get serious every Sunday evening as I switch gears for Monday. But alas it is 2012…So goodby cheek biting, fried food, cigs, more than 2 martinis, ill fiting lounge wear, Lifetime movies, jerk boyfriend…and helloo elliptical machine, lipstick, more voluminous hair, nightly reading, saying No, being grateful and daily flossing.
Like I said people, it’s time to get serious damn it!
