I am Gracious, Grounded, Passionate, and Cool-Cafe Gratitude

June 29th, 2012 (No Comments)

Each day I am reminded that a vegan lifestyle is becoming more mainstream. My local Starbucks now carries green juice, not a sugary imposter, but pure cold pressed juice made from identifiable veggies. Many restaurants are now offering a large variety of vegetarian options, no longer regulated to a cardboard processed frozen veggie burger. I […]

Buttons & Bows- Vintage DTLA

June 28th, 2012 (No Comments)

Back in the day, I did most of my shopping DTLA in the garment district. I remember walking up and down Los Angeles Street with my mom and sisters, always ending the day at Clifton’s cafeteria. This was before the “alley”, Staples Center, and LA Live. So when I read about Buttons & Bows a […]

Beasts of the Southern Wild

June 26th, 2012 (No Comments)

  Along with the arrival of summer comes the much anticipated summer films. I for one am especially looking forward to the debut of “Beasts of the Southern Wild“. This film is a fantastical tale of one six-year-old girl trying to make sense of the world around her. Inspired by Hurricane Katrina and Louisiana’s landscape, […]

What are you Passionate about?

June 26th, 2012 (8 Comments)

Came across this article about  passion written by Amy Spencer, in the July/August issue of Health magazine. I was intrigued by this list of five signs that you have found that “special thing”. You’d do it for free…and, uh, probably do. You’ve lost track of time while doing it and only noticed when you smelled […]

King of Pop 1958-2009

June 25th, 2012 (No Comments)

Three years ago today, June 25th, we lost the “King Of Pop”. I was on a caribbean cruise with my brother who was slowly losing his battle with colon cancer.  My brother found out before me and shared the news, I remember being shocked and hit with the reality of the impending death of my […]

A Sly Tribute

June 25th, 2012 (2 Comments)

Sly and The Family Stone ‘s “Dance to the Music” always brings back great memories for me. One of the benefits of having an older brother and sister was the exposure to “hip” popular music when I was just an itty-bitty. My sister was in love with Sly and would spin her 45’s and I would […]

I Love Chartreuse

June 22nd, 2012 (2 Comments)

I am loving chartreuse and neon yellow. Shockingly bright shades are showing up everywhere even on nails, this season. These fluorescent numbers are not for everyone, but perhaps  something buttery or lemony paired with a neutral could work for you. Are you rocking any acid colors this summer? Check out my pinterest board “they call […]

Hip Hop at LACMA

June 22nd, 2012 (4 Comments)

Last night my kids and I arrived at LACMA to an eclectic scene, all walks of life gathered with one common interest hip hop. This was not your typical club banger, rather three diverse underground artists performed their own version of hip hop illuminated by Chris Burden’s Urban Light sculpture. Gizzle, Dumbfoundead and headliner Medusa […]

It’s Summertime and the Reading is Easy…

June 20th, 2012 (4 Comments)

It’s Summertime and the reading is easy. Summer is the best time of year for book lovers, whether on the beach, on a long transcontinental flight, the car, or a lounge chair by the pool, we look forward to curling up with a delectable book. I still prefer “real books”, but I have slowly transitioned […]
