Chill Kicks

The best part about the cold weather in Cali is that I can wear tights & boots and stay warm. In Atlanta, my uniform was layers of thermals and snow boots and I was STILL freezing. Plus I looked like the Michelin Man. That was a drag.
When I first saw this photo on Face Hunter, it instantly put me in the mood for the chilly weather and I decided to launch a search for the fantastic boots. Then I clicked on the photo and got a nice surprise. Genius! Now to find shoes and socks like that... hmm.

Meat Is Murder

Isn't that a great song? (...if you want to stop eating meat. If you want to have fun, listen to Last of the Famous International Playboys.)
I was a vegetarian once upon a time. In high school I lasted about a year. So, watch this video already.

I blogged not too long ago about Banksy's peculiar pet shop & I'm posting this video because it is far superior to the one in the past post. Also, the content seems fitting for Halloween.
Here's a quote from Banksy on the exhibit.

"New Yorkers don’t care about art, they care about pets. So I’m exhibiting them instead. I wanted to make art that questioned our relationship with animals and the ethics and sustainability of factory farming, but it ended up as chicken nuggets singing. I took all the money I made exploiting an animal in my last show and used it to fund a new show about the exploitation of animals. If its art and you can see it from the street, I guess it could still be considered street art"

This is the show he's talking about... Don't know the title, but the elephant in the room...

Crashing GDLA!

Tune to Good Day LA on FOX11 this Friday, October 24th!
I'll be dishing the latest entertainment news and gossip, filling in for the incredible Dorothy Lucey!

It'll be nice not having to do my own hair in our live truck's rearview mirror. :)

My House Is Famous

Darn, I always wanted to grace a magazine cover. This is the next best thing... mi casa! This is the cover of the premiere issue of Angeleno Interiors. I'm the centerfold. Just kidding. Kinda wish I wasn't...
Back to the star. She looks pretty thanks to designers Ron Woodson & Jaime Rummerfield. Thanks guys! View more of their outstanding work here.
Once I get my paws on an issue I'll post more photos. It just came out & I found this online. I'm so excited!

My debut is tonight and I can't wait.

My Halloween Costume

My inspiration.

First of all, this is my favorite song by Amy Winehouse. I love her insane voice. That's all I'll be saying about insanity. :)

I was going to be Amy last year, but I ended up buying a cop costume at the last minute and wrote tickets as the fashion police. Check out the video here!! (Was it really a year ago?!)

I thought I'd be kind of a classy Amy. I bought a dress today and lots of fake tattoos and have my big bouffant, but then I came across these photos... I'm tempted, oh so tempted to do the tank top and jean shorts. Ain't no mountain high enough...

Blame It On The Rain

I have ash coming out of my ears. I'm covering the SoCal wildfires and they are terrible. I thought rain was the most exhausting type of story to cover and then I stumbled across these photos.

When I cover rain stories, I usually gripe and grumble about having to put on my rain gear. Once it's all on, I'm suddenly splashing around in puddles. It brings out the kid in all of us - especially - ahem - a few talented and sweet photographers named Vic and Eddie.

But as for fires, it always seems to be grueling. Here's to another day hoping no one else loses their home. That is the heartbreaking part. I can't imagine the pain and fear some families are experiencing right now.

I must add, the photos above weren't taken during a serious storm. Trust me. I live in a mudslide-prone canyon. Water can be just as treacherous. Eek.

Banksy Gives Me Goosebumps

Banksy has opened a fake pet shop called the Village Petstore in Greenwich Village. It kind of makes me want to become a vegetarian and kind of makes me hungry.
Fish fingers swim in a fishbowl, Chicken McNuggets with little chick feet dip themselves into barbecue sauce, an Alice In Wonderland style rabbit wears pearls and gazes at her reflection in a looking glass.
My favorite part is the leopard with a surprise reveal. Check it out.

Random Moments In SoCal

In addition to my blackberry and my makeup, a big mirror is one of my essentials at work.

I buy several a month, because I always end up stepping on it, kicking it when I'm moving around or dropping it. You can see the one I have right now has a crack down the middle. I am due for another trip to CVS.

So imagine my enjoyment when I saw my beloved mirror used in the most ingenius way: a sideview mirror. I swear, these mirrors are the best!

An Unfortunate Event

It was a delightful night. I just couldn't resist the title.
On Saturday, I went to Corey Helford Gallery to check out Joshua Petker's art. It was fantastic, but upstairs I spied these works by David Hochbaum and loved the fanciful spirit with a bit of an edge. I immediately thought of Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events.
Unfortunately, I don't own any of these pieces.
To me, the film is all about the closing credits. I love the repetitive trance-like music... ooh and the sitar. Not to mention the dark twisted animation. Check it out here.
