The Academy Awards Governors Ball is the biggest party of the year in Hollywood. 
And when I say big I mean a whopping 1,500 hungry and thirsty A list guests in need of an entertaining party.So how does the biggest party of the year handle such a huge responsibility?  They use only the best of the best when it comes to planning and designing  all aspects of the night. Good thing Governors Ball is being held at Hollywood and Highlands 65,000 square Grand Ballroom.

 For the past 22 years Cheryl Cecchetto, owner of Sequoia Productions has managed and produced the famed  Academy Awards Governor's Ball .
Cheryl  has this to say about her company "We create 'experiences' not events, and we are a full service company, designing everything from the décor to the menu to entertainment, florals and lighting. We take every detail seriously, even down to the departure gift. In short, the works!"

For the 18th year Mark Held and his team at Marks Garden are designing floral arrangements for the Academy Awards Governors Ball.

Marks Garden has been featured on shows such as Oprah , ET's Insider. and was named "L.A.'s best" by Los Angeles Magazine.

While feeding 1,500 guests sounds like a majorly daunting task to most people,Chef Wolfgang Puck doesn't seem phased by it.

Mercantile Market May 7th

Some of you may, or may not know that I have taken up a hobby of selling at Flea Markets! I have done two so far this year at the Mercantile Market in Downtown Fullerton, they're super fun and rewarding. I put lots of thought into what I'm doing because this is after all an expression of myself. There is a ton of behind the scenes work that goes into planning for these shows, I have to go hunting for pieces I know my customers will love and I try my best to listen to what you want and find it!

I also have an online store where I sell mostly apparel for baby, kids & adult so please check it out!

Here is my booth at the Mercantile Market this past May! This time around I brought my vintage clothing collection as well as second hand kids wear! Such a hit, if you love unique bright and fun clothing I have it! 
We sell succulents in vintage mugs and the're going for amazing prices! They make great gifts! Also so many people wanted to buy my display, its not for sale, but …

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 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!

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…
