Mad Hatter

Why don't they make hats like this anymore? Is it because no one would wear them? Because I happen to think some ladies would, my kinda ladies who want to keep their skin free of sun damage and who also appreciate a stylish hat would totally wear them. And yes, I am aware that I just created a pretty decent sized run on sentence. But this post is about the hats and why these particular ones are so needed right now.

Summertime...and the living is easy.

Something you may or may not know about me-I'm a list maker. But not in a normal person-grocery/chore list kinda way. More like an optimistic "I WANT THAT," kinda way. So seeing as how recently I've come across an bit of extra time on my hands I've decided to make a list of things that I would like to happen this Summer. Are you ready for it? Well here you go, a little insight into my strange desires for the next few months, in no particular order:

1. Late night walk all around Hollywood. The air feels so good at night!
2. Snow Cone at Olvera Street followed by some fruit and chili pepper and a concert by mariachis or those guys who play in the middle of the "square."
3. Late night karaoke in Little Tokyo.
4. Dennis Hopper Exhibit at the Geffen Contemporary.
5.Water balloon fight with unsuspecting strangers and or my friends.
6. Hit up every street vendor that visits my block for the day. This would include the ice cream man, the corn guy, the awesome produce dude, and more fruit and chili pepper.
7. A county fair, any county fair. I want to see farm animals, crafts and carnies.
8.A concert at the Hollywood Bowl, and no I don't care which one.
9. A game of baseball just like the kids at the Sandlot.
10.Go to a real baseball game, preferably a night one.
11. A swim at Marion Davies' Old Estate.
12. Get up or stay up before or after the sun comes in late night party time.
13. Check out the Natural History Museum rose garden, and say hey to the Dinosaurs.
14. Picnic! I blame "Big Top Pee Wee," for making me desire this so much.
15. As many Slurpees as possible....
16.Hula hoop contest.

Girl in a Coma

I'm kinda obsessed with this song right now. These girls do such amazing covers of a lot of my favorite songs, but this original tune is heartbreaking. Nina Diaz has the most beautifully haunting voice that is unlike any I've ever heard. I love them so much. And they are playing Sunset Junction this year, so I'm very excited for that now.

To Catch a Thief

When in doubt this summer, just channel Grace Kelly in "To Catch a Thief." The quintessential summer wardrobe designed by Edith Head will never go out of style. Obviously, it helps if you look like Grace but even still these outfits are very hard to beat. On a side note, I absolutely hate when people say Gwyneth Paltrow is the new Grace Kelly. Not even close in any way. Just a little something I had to say about a little something...

The Pink Palace-Style Inspiration

From first glance there was nothing subtle about Jayne Mansfield. Her home "The Pink Palace," however is a legend unto itself. A true Aries girl, Jayne stuck to a signature color palette of mostly pink and red.But on top of that she was as outrageous at decorating her home as a drag queen on acid. God, I love this woman. It really makes me sad that this place has been torn down. It was definitely one of a kind, to say the very least.

Better Red Than Dead...

This past week has been a very harsh one, the kind of week where you can't help but laugh at how awful it is (even my dog got sick-how country song is that?). But, one good thing I've learned is that my friends are awesome and not to be taken for granted ever. The other thing I've learned is to keep moving, keep learning and when all else fails put on a pretty dress and force yourself to smile. It will get better, because it has too.
