Even though I got a late start on today I feel great and getting a ton accomplished.  In the last few months I have been distracted and lost some focus.  Over the last few weeks God has aligned with me with people who uplift my soul recharging my life.  This summer I had so many questions but once some time went by the answers revealed themselves when it was meant.  Once they came I was able to understand myself, others and life completely different allowing myself to gain peace.  Yesterday I started to struggle towards the end of the day but once I uplifted my worries to God He began to work.  My mom has no idea what I am going through but felt the need to text me this:

"For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of Love and a sound mind."- 2 Tim 1:7

This is your scripture because when I was in labor with you I kept reading it over and over.  I think it is for you now.

After I read and totally received her message my amiga texted me sharing some thoughts and feelings that sealed the deal.  My mom's words and my friend's experience help heal the wounds in my soul from life beating me up this summer.  I am now back on the right path and will continue this journey giving full glory to God for all He has blessed me with.

Whenever I go to FSW a small group of us come together and discuss our love for grilled cheese sandwiches.  It's kinda become our thing :)  This morning I stumbled upon this sign and had to Instagram it to the Rock Legend Scum himself, Adam Thornstowe.  Though I put the seal of approval on Hooters grilled cheese I have to say the #1 pick for me, so far, is Mimi's Cafe's 5 grilled cheese sandwich.  Will The Oaks take Mimi's coveted spot or will it be a grill cheese disaster?  Stay tuned to find out!

Yesterday was an all gal pal day affair!  Life keeps aligning me with amazing people that have powerful energy which recharges my soul.  What a blessing.  We spent the day in Marina Del Rey/Venice area filled with laughs and fellowship.  Funny how I keep finding myself in that area, coincidence?  I think not...

One of my favorite places to have some naughty food and happy hour drinks is Cabo Cantina.  I haven't been there for a while, it was great to going back with my amigas!

We finished the night at this really cute bar in Westwood called The Wellesbourne. It was totally my vibe. Amazing drinks, cozy setting and surrounded by walls that you swear are trying to tell you a secret ;)

Ever have absinthe?  It's one of my favorite drinks but I don't get a chance to drink it often.  It was quite the delight to see it on The Wellesbourne menu.  Usually I drink absinthe straight up but being the vibe The Wellsbourne has to offer I had to have the official drink.  I think Danielle and I need to go back there and have a night filled with green fairies ;)

Lucille Ball playing- Lucy Ricardo playing- Audrey Hepburn... we definitely peeled the onion and went deep during my test shoot! We mixed multidimensional with simplicity. I had my costume from last year's Halloween hanging sadly and collecting dust in my closet. I only wore it once for the Santino's Halloween show. I accidentally backed into barbed wire and bled all over my cute, little,
"Loosey" costume. The blood didn't wash out...(read more)
