Gingerbread Houses Give Back!

Gingerbread Houses That Give Back

Hey everyone! I cant believe its the weekend already and what a wet and cold one it is in Socal. I wanted to share some photos from a recent event I went t this week with my Mom. On Monday we dressed in our semi-dressy holiday clothing and headed out in the rain to the East Lake Village Club House for a Gingerbread House Charity event. It was our first time at this fundraiser that has been going on for around 30 years or so. All we had to do was bring a toy per person to donate to toys for tots and we were then able to decorate a Gingerbread House for Special needs Children. There were even prizes for the top designed houses.
We were all given an hour to design our house and I thought it would be more than enough time to get everything done. I just started putting white frosting all over my house and it slowly became a hot beach house mess, all over my clothes, face and hands. I desperately tried to finish this house and make it have Adirondack chairs a surf board and a Xmas tree.

These are some photos of the many other Gingerbread houses that were Diva-lusciously decorated!
There were so many different styles I loved looking at them all. Made it finally feel like Xmas time being amongst all these candy coated homes. Mother and her friends from work had to cart all of the Gingerbread homes back to school to give to their students. I think there were at least 5 cars full. I got a photo with Stacie, the M.C. and judge of the contest that night. She was so funny and made my mom and I laugh out loud because of the raunchy jokes! Here Iam with my little house that I made :) There were even two marines there that participated through the whole event and brought so many toys back to donate to children.
We had a great time and need to be more prepared for next year when I make my next Gingerbread house! It was so cold that night that it actually snowed, JK I wish.
What feel good even have you taken part in this holiday season that made you happy?

Claremont Village

My mom and I have been going to Claremont forever now, and if you follow this blog than you know it too! It's a cute town that's near the foothills, has colleges, food, beer and cute shops to wonder in. 

We decided to take Loki with us that day, and it was so damn hot...is this the hottest summer in a while? Or do I just forget the prior years...eaither way it was on fire in Claremont that day. 

We stumbled upon a taco shack that was undeniably cute! I'm working on finding the name of it, I can't seem to find it on any listing.
Over by the restroom by the taco shop there was the wood csrbed donkey so we had to take pics with it! Poor Loki was so hot that day! 
Enjoying chipa and salsa at the taco shack.




A few things I do that make me feel like me

I start work in two hours so that means I have just enough time to start writing a blog post. Its been an inspiring week and I feel like there are signs from all over the universe guiding me into the right direction. I have had some meaningful time spent alone as well as with other people. I'm trying to have "more fun" and not worry so much about the little things. A few weeks ago I saw a psychic and she told me a ton of things, it was super strange to feel so vulnerable and unsure if what she was saying was true or not. 

The things she said that made me think... Ill be a mother, not now but in a few years. That I will be a successful Business woman, because I have vision and drive. That I have a dark spirit following me, That I want to be happy but that I only will be if I let whatever happened to me in my past go free.
As you can see it was pretty intense, full of tears and I was scared, but I knew that she was right because for a long time I had been unhappy and it was…

Village at La Floresta Walking Tour

Hi y'all it's been a few weeks since the opening of the new shopping center in Brea "Village at La Floresta" and I've finally had some time to share my experience and photos that I took that day!

As some of you may know, this new shopping center has been in the works for a few years now and is part of a whole new community of new custom homes and even a retirement home as well as a swimming club all under the umbrella of La Floresta, a master planned community.

One of the big draws for this new community is the fact that they had a whole foods as part of their shopping centers new tenants, and us crazy people in North oc have been having to go out to Tustin to get our fix of pre-peeled oranges and lemon infused water, I kid...lol do people really buy that crap anyway? Wenever I go it's usually to buy something fun from the beauty section or the salad bar!!! Yum!!!

When I went out to see the new location a few weeks ago I went in on the opening day! Crazy I t…
