Take Me There

So I'm always up for a stay-cation, snuggled up on my couch with a book... or the tv remote :) But I have to say I might just have to leave my humble abode for this place. No, rephrase, I would leave my humble abode in the dust for this place. The newly remodeled La Banane Hotel in St. Barts looks like something out of my dreams. Nestled in a coconut grove, the nine bungalows are furnished with vintage furniture built by Pierre Jeanneret (cousin of Le Corbusier) back in the fifties. The address is also completely confidential and revealed ONLY to the guests. Reason number 42 why I need to win the lottery.

J&J Wedding

Memorial Day weekend was one of the best weekends ever. Josh and I flew to PA to see my cousin Jenny get married. She has been by my side almost my entire life and therefore I consider her more of a sister than a cousin. The wedding was at a rustic estate, everything was designed by the bride and groom, and my god, it was all beautiful! I got to spend a lot of time with friends and family and I loved every glorious second of it :)

I love you both!! Welcome to the family Jonny!!!

AT&T Rethink Possible

This is one of my new favorite commercials. AT&T has never been rated high in my book, but the
add agency who did this commercial did a fantastic job. Plus the fact that Willy Wonka is one of the greatest movies ever made :)

Meet the sloths from Amphibian Avenger on Vimeo.

New Goal in life is to visit the Aviaros del Caribe sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica. Its the world's only sloth orphanage. I can't help it. I find them completely irresistible.

Frank Frazetta 1928-2010

Sadly, today we lost a legend. Frank Frazetta passed away this morning from a stroke at the age of 82. He was truly the master of fantasy and will be greatly missed.

9 by Design

Officially my new favorite show.
It makes me dream of high ceilings and hard wood floors..*sigh* :)
"Meet husband and wife design team Bob and Cortney Novogratz, owners of the NYC based design firm, Sixx Design, and stars of Bravo's newest docu-series "9 by Design." For more than a decade, this young, hip and artsy couple have developed and designed unique properties in Manhattan, rebuilt entire blocks in the city, and turned funky into fabulous with taste and confidence. In any given week, the duo face daunting construction challenges against rapidly ticking clocks, create sumptuous spaces from wrecks and empty lots, and then decorate the spaces with rare and inspiring collectables.

I was raised right - I talk about people behind their backs

So, a browsing trip through the Palo Alto Borders actually paid off this time! I was juggling two books ( Kathy Griffen's memoir and Anthony Bourdain 's Kitchen Confidential... I have a thing for people with smart mouths). Kathy won out for reasons I'm not really sure of, but I made a great decision and I'll tell ya why. She's got this incredible way of story telling. Its like shes a friend just gossiping with you over coffee. Her way of standup translates perfectly into this book. I often find myself having to read things more than once to really make sure I understand whats happening, but with this book, it just flows. Granted I'm only about a quarter of the way through, but I honestly get excited to crawl into bed early at night so I can pop it open and read some more. It's been a long time since I've found a book like that :)
Luv ya Kath!

My Little Pony is REAL...I knew it.

Weighing in at just six pounds, the New Hampshire-born foal may be the world's smallest horse. Dr. Rachel Wagner, Einstein's co-owner, says the Guinness record for the smallest newborn horse is 9 pounds. Wagner notes Einstein shows no signs of dwarfism, unlike the current record holder.

Anyone willing to drive to NH and steal this lil gem for me? :P

Wondercon SF

howdy howdy! So I forgot to mention this past Sunday I got to hit up Wondercon in the city.
Its basically a comic book convention, but Josh and I love to go and peruse the art book vendors. And by peruse, I mean scour like mad people. It often pays off with marvelous finds at decent prices. The trick is to go on the last day because the vendors will often give you a deal so they don't have to pack up as much stuff :) Spoils of war:

We also grabbed a bunch of older books that I can't find pictures of on the interwebs. And, of course, there were two books I couldn't do anything but drool over... ugh expensive but glorious...

i miss drawing

Ive been so busy with work I haven't had time to draw lately and I really miss it. This is the first thing I've done in a LONG time. I need to get back on the horse. I am seriously out of practice.This is a drawing I did for my cousin's wedding in May. Can't have a circus themed wedding without some face-cutouts!

Weekend Weekend

This was a fine fine weekend indeed! Because Josh and I may be starting to work Saturdays in the next week or so, we figured we should go out and take advantage of this weekend. Plus the fact that it was gorgeous outside. We jumped in the car and drove up to the city. In the midst of our excursion we came across Telegraph Hill and rode the elevator to the top of Coit Tower. It was fun but not something that I ever need to do again. The tower shook a lot because of the old elevator and it made me really nervous. I was done in 5 minutes. no joke. So after a quick drink at Visuvio (One of my fav bars) we went boutique hopping in North Beach and Hayes Valley. Here are some of the awesome finds ...
Love 'dem keds! breaking them in today. a little blistery, but we'll get there.
Eco-friendly mounted deer :) we hung it above the tv. oh the amazing-ness of cardboard :P

One Week is Never Enough

So, I've been pretty busy these past two weeks getting back into the swing of things. Catching up on work and missed tv episodes :) Finally have some time to tell you about my vacation! Basically, I was the best place I've ever been and I had an AMAZING time. We stayed at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel on Maui's west coast. I was not a super swanky place but it had this old school Hawaiian vibe to it that i absolutely adored. I mean if you're in Hawaii, you want to feel like you are! The island is beautiful, even when it's raining and because of the on again off again showers, I counted 7 rainbows during our stay! The community there is something I've never experienced. They have like this island comradery and a laid back-ness that is contagious. We talked to a lot of people who were just nomads. They hop from island to island working side jobs and chillin on the beaches. Tough life. Mind if you join you? :D


Every kind of tropical drink you could imagine, 24/7
Tsunami Saturday - 10 hrs on a hill, waiting for a wave that never came
Driving to the top of the volcano in the freezing bitter cold
Old Lahaina Luau
Snorkeling in the Pacific Ocean with a pink floaty noodle
Driving through a lava field
Driving Kahekili Highway and not dying, but OMG i thought we were going to.
Watching the wake boarders at Kaanapali Beach
Eating some of the best food I've had in ages. Especially the Kahlua pork...mmmmmmmmm
Discovering the most romantic little beaches with my hunny :)
Summary: One week is never enough.

This is the Old Lahaina Luau that J took me for my birthday :) xoxo
Thank you Maui! We shall return!!

Newest film comes out next Friday, March 26th! I'm super excited to see it all put together and am very proud of it already.

Everyone go check it out! Here's the latest trailer.. there are quite a few of my shots in there! including the one you're looking at right now :D
