First, a reversible Missoni bikini to match my limited edition San Pellegrino. By the way, the disclaimer on net-a-porter.com recommends not getting the bikini wet. Click details if you go there. Where are my high heels?!
I love a bright print and recently discovered Milly. There's a Pucci-esque style to this brand, and while I wouldn't say it's inexpensive, it's a fraction of Pucci's price. I love Milly's cover up and the folded up fabric to the right? Those aren't pillowcases. It's a beach blanket with detachable pillow. Dying!
By the way, can we start a new trend? The headband sweatband style is over. Please wear it the classic way. Your forehead pores will thank you.

Curtis Kulig's street art spotted on Sunset Blvd. a block east of Highland Ave.
You've probably seen his art in the opening credits of SNL. I have this poster, which I regret is sold out.
His latest one is still available, but not as cool as the others IMHO. I recommend scouring ebay.
These are the two current options I own:
1. Earbuds. They fall out when I'm running.
2. Headphones with attached earbuds. They stay in, but it feels like my ears are being stabbed
These soft and adorable ear cushions are a sight (sound) for sore ears. I know Dr. Dre has isolation headphones, but in my musical bliss, I would surely get hit by a car on my way to Runyon.

At the induction ceremony she read the letter I wrote to her when I was 21 years old. I was a web producer at KNBC & told her how proud I was of my job & how I was practicing what she taught me (which was avoiding flowery language and extraneous words). I am still working on these things...
Below is my husband @robertd3 and I.My HS BFF @christinacosta & I were songleading co-captains, on student council together & besties to this day :)I grew up with @ChrisAlvarado too. I remember when he was a short & chubby boy when we were kids!! Now he's a tall, dark & handsome actor. Future DHS Wall of Famer.My momma xoxoxoTom Houts (who was my Vice Principal) is the Principal of DHS. He was always sweet and still as handsome as I remember him! Speaking of principals...
I was inducted with Allen Layne, who was my high school principal. He's a bit ahead of me though. The high school football field is named after him.
I remember painting signs like this for student council and cheerleading. What great memories came back to me!
Lizet aka @ldizzlesquirrel came to support too! She graduated in 2000 from DHS but we met on twitter!
After the ceremony I had to eat at El Taco, which is still my fave Mexican food on the planet. Taquitos or flautas smothered in guacamole. That's the ticket.
I came home, cuddled with my plaque and honoree blanket. One of the most memorable days ever.

This video was shot right here in Lancaster, Cali. It starts like a Seventeen magazine photo spread with the trendy tribal look, but then dissolves into The Beatles' Yellow Submarine and glow in the dark war paint.

This is my take.
Ingredients for one.
Two handful of fresh baby spinach - buy it in the bag, much faster
5 fresh strawberries
small can of corn, drained - yes, I serve it straight from the can!
1 grilled chicken breast
For salad dressing, I have a sweet tooth, so I use Marie's fat-free raspberry vinegarette, but a dash of olive oil and balsamic vinegar work great too
Grill a chicken breast, preferably on the BBQ! In a bowl lightly toss the spinach with the salad dressing until it's evenly coated. Plate it. Slice strawberries and 2 tbs of corn on top, sprinkle pepper and top with the warm sliced grilled chicken. Voila!
