Im thinking I might have to do this in the backyard, better yet at road less traveled! Wouldn't it be an awesome display? I used this design in the restaurant I designed. 

Right now Im obsessed with cinder blocks especially 1960s Palm Springs motifs. Have been secretly saving photos to share with you soon. Alright, back to work now people...

Today Im going to be finishing the window display for the shop...and it has something  to do with this....

Black Beauty

I had a lovely afternoon, but today wasn't it. These are some photos from a few weeks ago with my black cats in the garden. Sometimes I cant wait to come home and see them, animals have a way of making me feel calm. I brought home Momo and Dezmo a few years ago from the animal shelter and great companions and love getting their photo taken. Black cats are the best!

PUNJAMMIES by International Princess Project

At work I meet many different people that are so nice and love sharing great companies and non-profits  that they have discovered. My favorite by far is the International Princess Project which helps women in India to overcome forced prostitution and to re-build their lives by giving them self sustaining jobs and ensuring resources towards healing and health. 
Rajani and her daughters
International Princess Project has started Punjammies a handmade Pajama line produced by these women in India . 
Once I found out about what these women do and how purchasing these pajamas is helping them directly I immediately bought two pairs of pajamas and a tank.
I own both pairs shown above! The white pair is so lightweight and the pair on the right is so vibrant!

I own the tank shown above in light blue and wear it alot! Considering getting the black one too :)

Brangelina with baby?

The tabloids are chattering about yet another Brangelina baby drama story, this time involving another woman! They say that Brad has had an affair and impregnated another woman (Jennifer Aniston) and Angelina is leaving his ass. 
Brad Pitt Pregnancy Shocker!

Upon further investigation (looking at my fav celeb blogs) I noticed that the Palm Springs  Film Festival was this weekend and both Angelina and Brad were in attendance, and so was their baby bump! I'm thinking that they are expecting yet another baby based on these photos and the dress of choice. The cane that Brad is sporting is not because of an accident but a ploy to distract from Angelina's ill shaped dress! So is Angelina carrying Brad's other lovers baby? Wait this makes no sense, huh.

The dress is a bit too loose for a fat day, don't ya think?

Date with the night owl

Yesterday I had a short work day so I decided to take advantage of the 80 degree weather in Orange County. I headed on over to Down Town Fullerton to spend some me,myself and I time to de-stress from the holidays. I didnt have my camera so I used my phone to take some photos of the lovely evening I had. 

Some dont understand the simple act of making time for yourself. If you can, go for it. It's not strange to go for a walk alone on a beautiful night. 
 The Main Entrance of California State University Fullerton. 60s architecture and all. 

 A view of the warm sun that set that night. 

 Chilling in front of the First Christian Church. 

 Fullertons newest coffee shop The Night Owl. 

 Of course I had to try it out. Cool decor and tasty chai. 

 A glimpse of the moon from atop the Villa Del Sol building. So Romeo & Juliet.

 The Villa Sol was once the California Hotel. 

 Beautiful view.

Tree's are lit year round. 

 The reflection of the sky on the windows was gorgeous. 

I wish I could capture this sunset in a bottle and look at it again.
