Entries from April 2013

the kickoff

April 29, 2013

it has officially commenced.


my week of turning 40.

well although not precisely the exact four-oh; last thursday i made the brilliant decision that it’s just easier to start rounding UP.

in fact, hold this thought for a day or two…the mid-century mark might even work better.

i’ve never cared much for math. it gives me wrinkles and cystic acne.


so fuck it! i’m gonna be forty!

give or take three years. 


see? at forty, i don’t have to worry so much anymore about the swearing…right?

hello explicit, nasty, peel the paint off with your dirty words version in all my spin classes.

i mean if amy grant has those versions?

you’ve been warned.



come to mama 40-bear.

my weekend recipe

April 26, 2013

 i have a couple of months coming up so crammed, we may have to buy them bigger pants.

weekend workshops and seminars that seemed like such a good idea, last year, when i signed up for them, now have me questioning my thirst for “higher” education and innovation. i most likely just needed a nap instead; not continuing education hours.


but the deposits have all been paid. i’m in.

this weekend i am enjoying the calm before the semi-spring storm.

here is my recipe for a weekend happy.


saturday i will be up earlier than mr. sunshine so that i may give him a proper welcome as he cheerfully, ascends up into the milky, blue sky. 

these early mornings always send me into a ecstatic mood.


maybe not via pastels or paint, but this weekend art will happen.

some get inspired by landscapes and still-lifes; for me it’s a ballet barre and lately a thera-band.

yes i just thought the same thing: um? did that bitch just call herself an artist? #pretentiousmuch

yes, i am.


even if it’s just me, in line at coffee, and depending on what song i hear playing on the radio and inside my head, there will be spontaneous outbursts of dance throughout the weekend.


the last component of the recipe is the most important, and the hardest for me: the zen.


i was hanging out at my friend luciana’s house this week, post her morning meditation. it was definitely a “when harry met sally” i’ll have what she’s having moment. 


we both were giggly and happy, having our girl time, but luciana was more: game of thrones’ princess daenerys targaryen,


and i was more: targaryen dragon-like.

i must get my mutha-fuckin zen on!


so here’s to a sunny, creative, mosh-pit, but peaceful style weekend to you m’loves.

see you on the other side of sunday. 



bling ring

April 25, 2013


it’s been a bit since i’ve done a movie trailer post, but there really hasn’t been much out there that fancies me. 

YouTube Preview Image

that is until i saw sofia coppola’s, based-on-a-true-story, summer release, “bling ring” with emma watson.

sofia coppola usually hits home runs.


and anytime adderall-popping, wrecked-trains invoke words like karma and spiritual healing to bolster and defend their drug addicted, crime-eliciting sprees, i’m sucked in like my spoon is to my nutzo-jar.


it’s a given that i will see the great gatsby…but baz luhrman has been teasing me with the release of this betty for over a year now, it’s practically time for another remake. 

i am especially excited though for this xx song available on the soundtrack released on may 7th

any movies grabbing your attention?
