Aura picture

I have been working on being on not being a workaholic. How am I doing, you ask? Well, I have been making time for myself! The first part of this process started by getting my ass back in the gym. I can’t tell you how good I feel now that I have been moving around and active for the past month. In all fairness to me, I placed myself in my own prison a.k.a. a walking boot from an injury sustained while playing kickball. Yes, kickball. I’m a total ringer too but one bad step while running through the bag,… Continue Reading

Beverly Hills Ain’t So 9021-OHHH!

Beverly Hills Ain't So 9021-oh

I am in Beverly Hills right now doing one of the most dreaded task a person has to do…..pack a house and move! So, while I am traveling my mom and I thought it would be fun to treat ourselves to a suite at the SLS Hotel. WRONG! This has been anything but relaxing and I would have been better off sleeping on the hardwood floor of my house with no bedding, no electricity, and curled up next to piles of cardboard boxes (which roaches love to breed in- BTW). This hotel charges a lot of money for us to… Continue Reading

Happy holidays! If you are like me you are still trying to find the “right” gift for your friends and family.

Zipcar: $25 Off Wheels When You Want Them

Zipcar: $25 Off Wheels When You Want Them

I am a California girl inside and out! More specifically, born in the Bay Area. Love my San Francisco Giants, Golden State Warriors and San Francisco 49ers (but Kaep can go anytime). However, I moved to Los Angeles to work in the music business when I completed college at the University of Arizona. I will always be a Wildcat and a Bay Area sports fan no matter what zip code I am in! Going back to Cali, Cali, Cali and the fact that NorCal and SoCal are different but what they do have in common is traffic and parking situations…. Continue Reading

Summer products that sizzle

It is so hot in Arizona that I think I may be melting. But, I need a tan. There are a few problems with that statement. One you melt when you lay out in the Arizona sun and two, the risk of skin cancer. When I lived in Los Angeles, I never had an issue but as soon as I returned to Arizona I went for a yearly check up and had a few questionable beauty spots on my skin. So, I have been super cautious and always apply sunscreen. I was given a few lotions from Safe Harbor to… Continue Reading

“Thank You” Sevendust’s Lajon Witherspoon For Talking New Album & Tour With Me

By now, we all know that I am a rocker and in my past life I worked in the music business doing marketing for rock bands. I bleed rock n’ roll.

It has helped me through tough times and is always there for me when I need it. So, when I had the opportunity to meet Lajon Witherspoon from Sevendust I hopped on a plane and took a flight to Los Angeles. I was… Continue Reading
