oh man, i have been one bad blogger these past few weeks. i'm in the middle of night rehearsals and my mind is so fuzzy and tired, i can hardly keep it together. enough complaining, though! i'm doing what i love and i love that! did you all have a good valentines day? i threw a suprise party for my cast. we ate their favorite ice cream, opened valentines and had a movie watching party (have you guys seen CAMP? it's the best!)  ooo what else?! our 80s prom went off without a hitch! for those of you who couldn't make it - check out the adorable behind the scenes video our videographer put together! what a fun night! 


p.s. somehow my photoshop isn't working (quel horror!) so i'm going to focus on getting that fixed this week so i can come back to blogland with some fresh new posts! till then, thanks for your patience! xo

MUSIC MONDAY: WE FOUND LOVE IN A HOPELESS PLACE

1

Sunday, February 5, 2012



Watching two people fall in love via a drug soaked frenzy is straight-up-seductive. I saw this video for Rihanna's latest jam, We found love in a hopeless place, and was speechless; who knew Rihanna could be so effing cool? My initial thoughts were: I need those Christmas lights  in her bedroom. Where does one procure that denim romper? And does Rihanna actually wake up in the morning with her hair looking that good? The video was directed by the effervescently cool Melina Matsoukas who has also shot videos for Lily Allen, Beyonce and Lady Gaga to name a few. No big deal. No big deal at all. It's on my bucket list for 2012 to direct my first music video and you bettah believe I'll be starting my online inspiration board with this puppy. ENJOY!

SAY YES TO FLOWERS!

i am on a ridiculously strict budget right now which as many of you know, ain't no walk in the park. there is a lot of stress that comes along with perusing ones dreams; the giving up of a steady paycheck, the shutting off of one's precious cable (i'll miss you, californication!) and the sacraficial choice to never go out to dinner. ever. the one thing i refuse to give up on are fresh cut flowers. the joy of walking into a room and smelling that sweet and sultry stargazer lily or staring into the charming bud of a bright yellow ranunculus simply can't be matched. for all you los angelinos out there - there is a way to say yes to flowers on a budget! i'm a fan of my secret garden which is affordable and lovely. they wrap your buds in brown paper and tie it with a string (even if you're only buying one stem) it's simply delicious. there is also the flower mart downtown which offers a wide variety for trader joe's prices. and if you get an extra babysitting gig or a bonus - stop by gilly's in silverlake. they have the world's best collection and are known for their vintage vase collection. i swoon.
