It Has Taken Over Me Completely

I am currently reading Love in the Time of Cholera.

I wanted to read the book before i saw the movie (knowing full well i will most likely be disappointed with the movie), but that has taken a backseat due to my new obsession:I know im a little late on the Twilight craze, but I just got around to watching the movie this past weekend. I watched it 3 times in a row and have become completely obsessed. I have now decided to dedicate all my reading time to the entire series. I feel like a crazy 16 year old fan, but i cant resist. Please tell me you understand.


Best Birth Control Out There

Saturday: The Aquarium of the Pacific/Playground at Seal Beach
I yelped quite loudly when this lorikeet decided to land on my hand for some nectar.

Sunday: Gathering of New Born Babies
Not triplets. 3 friends got pregnant within a month time frame. Lodi Peaches representing the Westside.

Monday: Disneyland

Tuesday: Got Tubes Tied (not really)

I actually had a wonderful weekend. The babies/kids i spent the weekend with were all so precious, beautiful, and well behaved. Thank the lord.

Sun Dried Tomato Pesto - Thanks Chris!

My friend Chris lives in New Orleans, but comes out to CA to visit quite frequently. He loves to cook, but since he doesn't have a kitchen where he stays during his visits, i invited him to work on a collaboration dinner. I make happy meatballs (cuz we're addicted) and he makes sun dried tomato pesto with linguine.

Now that I know how easy pesto is to make, especially with my magic bullet (not that "magic bullet" ladies), I will be making some again very soon. Of course it will be on a night when calories won’t be on the mind. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to get pictures of the step by step process.

The basic ingredients are lots of fresh chopped basil, extra virgin olive oil, minced garlic, pine nuts, parmesan cheese, salt, and roughly chopped sun dried tomatoes in olive oil. While the water is boiling, puree all of the dry ingredients together in some sort of food processor in a few pulses while slowly adding the olive oil. We used some olive oil from the sun dried tomato jar to add more flavor. I don’t have measurements because he just eyeballed it. Here is a easy pesto recipe i found online.Once the pasta is just about al dente, add the pesto sauce into a large pan with some more chopped sun dried tomatoes over low heat. Add the pasta to the pan and toss to coat evenly. Plate and sprinkle some cheese on top. Eat alone or serve with Happy Meatballs.


WR2BAM/MilkItHoney Pt. 2

Finally! The rest of the pictures from my afternoon with Sara of WR2BAM. Yes, I am wearing two diy studded projects at the same time, but I couldn’t resist. I am finally going to get some wear out of that black denim skirt that had been neglected in the closet for who knows how long.

This is our Asian gang pose.

My mom just treated me to lunch on my break. I love my family, but there’s something about spending time with them that makes me just want to take a long nap afterward.


It's a World of Laughter, A World or Tears

We will be taking my friend's 3 year old to Disneyland for the first time and Im not sure who's more excited, me or the kid. I just can’t wait to see the look on his adorable little face.

Just the thought of walking around that place for hours upon hours made my feet ache, so I decide I would have to wear my gym sneakers (which are not cute). And if I wear my gym sneakers, I might as well freaking sport a visor and fanny pack right? I mean, that’s what 99% of the people there are going to be wearing anyway, who cares if im dressed like a dorky tourist.

But then I saw these on Colette.fr:
Jean Charles De Castelbajac Mickey Sequins Dress $1864.46

Jean Charles De Castelbajac Free-Lance Court Shoes $603.98

F*ck the sneakers! A sequin Mickey dress and matching pumps will do just fine...with the visor, of course!

Stay tuned till next week to see what I actually end up wearing…

WR2BAM/MilkItHoney Pt. 1

Sara from WR2BAM and I decided we should collaborate since I am usually unmotivated to take pictures of myself and she usually only post work outfits. We brought along our friend, Farron for support and turned out she’s a pretty darn good photographer. Your’re hired!

First we went to the beach where it was stupid cold and windy. The surfers got a good chuckle at our attempts to keep our hair and skirts in place.

Jacket: Mango
T-Shirt: Vintage
Scarf: Boos & Besito
Skirt: Forever 21
Leggings: Forever 21
Boots: We Who See

For what Sara is wearing, peep over to WR2BAM.


This past Friday the 13th the boyfriend’s band, SOON, had the opportunity to score the 1920 artistic silent film, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and play along with it live during a midnight showing at the recently renovated Art Theater in Long Beach, CA.
I always felt that the music is a big part of what makes a suspense/horror movie actually scary. Think about it; Jaws, Halloween, The Wizard of Oz…Soon created a soundtrack that really brought the scenes to life. The rumble of the bass paired with a half bottle of Ravenswood...I was feeling it.

Here's a short clip i shot. sorry the sound quality isn't better. it actually sounded great.

Childs Play

I found this adorable hooded faux fur jacket at Buffalo Exchange a while back. It’s a kid’s jacket so the sleeves are just short of my wrists, which I love. And there’s a patch on the inside lining that I can write my “in case of emergency” info onto. I guess that could come in handy should I get myself lost on a chilly day.

Sara from wr2bam.blogspot.com and I got together over the weekend to take some collaboration shots which I will be sharing with you shortly.


He Takes the Cake

The Food Network can be very dangerous to watch if you are trying to avoid certain foods and cravings. During a day of continuous cake focused episodes, the boyfriend texted me asking if i wanted any dessert. Could he read my mind? RED VELVET CAKE PLEASE! Before the next torturous episode even started, i was presented with my usual red velvet slice from Ralphs Grocery store and a gigantuous cupcake that came in this Beauty and the Beast rose case style thingy. I cant really remember what happened after that, i believed a passed out from joy/cake overload. Just another reason i keep him around.

Meanwhile, in a friend's refrigerator across the street, David D. makes me feel very guilty.i have been known on more than one occasion to force feed him pork products yet he still considers me his friend.

note: fridge door did not contain condiments, but a variety of teas. You are better than me David D.


Casiotone For The Painfully Alone

A while back i was driving around, listening to KCRW and heard this fun cover of Hot Boyz (orig. by Missy Elliot) that i was really into.

You can listen to Casitone For The Painfully Alone's cover of Hot Boyz (w/Dear Nova) and a bunch of his other songs by clicking here. He also covered "When you were mine" by Prince.

Check out this super cute video for their song, White Corolla

Eenie Meenie Miney Moe

Which to pick, i do not know...

im leaning towards the cream pair? or the black ones? it seriously could come down to the good old nursery rhyme to help me make the decision.
