Had a pink Christmas this year, and Boy did it just spring up quick. I got this tree from a customer at work! I love my job. Anyways I started the holidays with coffee, a breakfast date with my tiger, sunning in the garden, and setting up the cotton candy pink tree. Pink lingerie, bloomers, fabulous french sunnies, music,dancing, flirting, and kissing all day. Between the sunshine and the fire place, we indulged in cold stellas in icy glasses, whiskey,good food, and good company. For all who stopped by and shared times with us, we love and cherished every second. We went to our favorite pancake house for a late breakfast. Wake and bake is a slow start enjoying every second with no hurries. No Stress. New Years goal! Back to the pancakes, and this place has the best coffee ever, the polished silver spoons, and Victorian decor make it that much better. Fresh squeezed orange juice, naturally. More coffee, yes please. We order, well always order the giant fluffy German pancake. Sitting there all ready to be topped with the fresh whipped butter, powdered sugar, and lemon juice. You must have the apple-wood smoked bacon, unless you don’t eat meat. Mad Respect. We share this over fun conversation and by the end our fingers smell of sweet lemon sugar butter bars, you could bottle the smell, or at least make a candle. http://www.originalpancakehouse.com/ I love the banana chocolate chip ones with fresh whipped cream too. A must try if visiting San Diego. They have excellent service too. Spending my twelfth Christmas with this beautiful Brazilian Guitarist-surfer right beside me. He truly is my king, my sun, and my stars. I fall for him more each day and melt in his arms like warm sand. I am lucky to find a love like this. Love conquers all. Since it was so Hot We decided to throw a tropical holiday brunch for New Years Eve. I made Hawaiian wedding cakes with cream cheese icing, walnuts, and cherries. I also made beijinos, or little kisses. Sugared coconut condensed milk truffles from Brasil. Sweet. I love serving up brunch, its easy, sexy, and fun. Mimosas start the party right, the bubbles go straight to the head. Plus whats not to love about breakfast for dinner. I always serve my mimosas with fresh squeezed juice. If you have yet to realize you only live once, spend the extra time to squeeze. I use orange, and grapefruit juice. I added pink guava juice to these. I always serve cold beer, it is my favorite, symbolizes vacation. Plus most people love it, and you cant get too drunk. I made a big fruit plate, a cheese topped buttery onion garlic mashed potato casserole, and a brown sugary cinnamon, crunchy soft french toast bake. To die for, and a recipe to come soon. I am working on a brunch book. Easy, and perfect. Cute gifts. Every second is of infinite value. But what minutes! Count them by sensation, and not by calendars, and each moment is a day.- Benjamin Disraeli He is blessed over all mortals who loses no moment of the passing life. -Henry David Thoreau I love wearing red and pink together. I do whatever makes me happy, and that is how we should all aspire to live in 2014. For ourselves, and in the moment. Do everything with love and care.

I grew up with Lisa Frank, Her colorful way of life influences many young girls for generations. Neon, pink, purple, blue, rainbow, unicorn, dolphin, puppy, ice cream, alien, rose swirled to girly perfection. Eye candy in the form of school supplies. Made me excited to go back to school shopping. I have been seeing Her colors pop up in my life again so I had to throw a Party in honor of this 90s bitch. I started collecting Lisa Frank and other girly goodies with my friend Erica and we were determined for a dress up party filled with girls,unicorn poop, and fairy cocktails. The party turned out super cute eating Kat’s birthday cake in the car, with our fingers. I obsess over stick on jewels from micheals, so many to chose from. I always keep them in my purse, its a fun way to bond with new friends, or play with when bored. I just love looking at them. Eyelash glue is good to have handy too because you can glue most light things on your face, or body.
I am obsessed with themed parties and when I got a ton of alien balloons at work, I had to celebrate. Alien Happy Hour Pool Party Prom. Not too much food for this party like I usually serve, it was more for playing dress up, taking photos, and partying with my alien babes. I kept the menu simple, fun, and kid like. Earth girls are easy anyways. I bought all the funnest green candy I could find, like slime, sour straws, light saber spray, and orbit gum. I filled the room with ray guns, props, glow sticks, jewels and space glasses. Lime crime blue lipstick in No She Didn’t was present. I served up my kiwi mimosas(in my recipe section) in a big fishbowl to resemble a space helmet. I also made a cosmic green fruit dip and fresh fruit for dipping. I uses lots of kiwis and grapes because of the green. The dip is super easy. I mixed up some cool whip up in a bowl with some pineapple juice, and a scoop of vanilla green color changing pudding mix, (food coloring works too with a scoop of vanilla pudding mix). I served some crunchy green pea snacks to add some saltiness to the mix. A special shout out to my beautiful talented friend Erika Viereck. She makes clothes, accessories, designs textiles, a stylist, and makes my hair wonderful. Like me she lives every second of life glamorous dolled up, broke and fabulous. We call ourselves Boozy Berries, and have a shared passion on throwing extravagant parties on a budget. We both know all the best placed to go for happy hour as well as deals on wine, cheese, and dessert. We spend most of our time making each other beautiful, stylish, and most importantly laugh. Another shout out to POP ROCK Threads, and Jeannette for the amazing photographs and company. These girls are just getting started, keep an eye on them. The party was out of this world. We all bonded over Bowie s Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars Vinyl. So Good. Time for me to blast off and head back to space.
