Good start to new year

This new year is starting smashingly ūüôā ¬†Went to dinner on new years eve at Spiaggia and it was AMAZING. ¬†So yummy! ¬†Appetizer course was¬†mozzarella¬†drizzled in a honey type sauce with some type of fruit (kumquat?) chopped next to it and amazing prosciutto. ¬†I felt like the movie Ratatouille where the mouse had the flavors exploding in his mouth in bursts of jazz and colors! ¬†It was THAT good. ¬†Pasta course was a butternut squash filled pasta with fried sage and amaretto sauce, also incredibly delish and my mom’s favorite part of the meal. ¬†Steak ¬†with morel mushrooms and smashed potatoes followed, finished by the creamiest tiramisu ever put together. ¬†WHAT a dinner to start off the night’s activities! ¬†I was already incredibly happy with my makeup and hair, felt good in my outfit, and had on my fly headpiece, lol. ¬†EVERYONE was stopping me and saying that it was gorgeous and that they wanted to party with me because I must be fun, lol. ¬†That was so cool.

Then went to the Signature Room at the John Hancock building’s lounge. ¬†There was a hilarious lady there who was fun and an instant friend. ¬†She was crazy and cool, seated next to us. ¬†I heart her, we clowned hard and didn’t even know each other! ¬†Then there were gorgeous fireworks outside the window which overlooked gorgeous Navy Pier.

Next up, party at our hotel! ¬†We stayed at the Westin that night and finagled our way into the hotel party they were having there. ¬†THAT was pure hilarity, because they were SO wasted! ¬†Some chick fell under her table trying to reach for something, another fell through a sign at the elevator then tried to argue that she wasn’t drunk, barely able to keep her eyes open. ¬†I had too much fun there, cracking the eff up and dancing with my Phy-Phy. ¬†Great new years eve! ¬† ¬†Spent the next day shopping and lounging around the Four Seasons hotel where we stayed the next night. ¬†I’m all about luxe surroundings! ¬†Drinks in front of the lounge fireplace was oh so nice, even saw a HOT guy at the bar, but I looked all of 15 with my hello kitty jewelry and yellow sweater, so um yeah, not approaching him! haha. I promise next time to dress for the¬†occasion¬†so that I can have something better to update ūüėČ

I had to do another cowash and twist out when I got home last night because feathers and glitter were in my hair, cramping my style ya know ūüėČ ¬†Woke up today, took it down and WHOA, best twist out ever! ¬†Okay, well I went a little happy with the marula oil spray the night before so it was a tad oily, but other than that? ¬†Your girl was FLY. ¬†It was moisturized, super curly, fun! ¬†My cousins even complimented me on it and they are SO not about natural hair ūüôā

snapped on my new lace bow clips and sashayed my happy self out the door to church where I played with my cutie pie god daughter. ¬†She is LEAVING me ūüė¶ ¬†Her mom is moving them back to Alabama, I am heartbroken. ¬†I love that lil chocolate drop, she’s so sweet and fun with her fat cheeks. ¬†NEVER cries, just a doll.


Got back RAVE reviews from the editor on my piece that I wrote ūüôā¬† She said that I’m very talented and will be a star at the magazine.¬† Woot Woot!¬† Best thing I’ve heard all year(granted, we’re not even a month in, but YA KNOW, lol).¬† That is my great news, and they want to use me for much more, so I am very pleased.

Went to a party on Sunday.¬† The thing is, I hate clubbing in the winter, because most of my going out clothes are summery (read: skimpy, legs out, boobs out, etc) so it’s tough picking something for winter.¬† Not only that, it also means coat check.¬† Boo!¬† So, I didn’t feel like coat checking since we parked only a block away, so like an idiot, I ran that block with no coat in below zero weather in a satin shirt.¬† Needless to say, now I’m sick as a dog ūüė¶¬† Doesn’t help my friendly disposition.¬† On top of that, there is supposed to be a great party tonite with pro athletes and what not and now I can’t go….boooooooooooo!

well, I did get to meet another of my fave video vixens at the party, Melyssa Ford.

New Year’s Eve, Party like it’s 1999!

New years eve totally made up for the sucky experience at Les Deux.¬† What an awesome day ūüôā¬† I started it off with shopping because I didn’t like anything that I had to wear, so I ended up with a form fitting, totally sex kitten dress that made me ooooooooze sex appeal ūüėȬ† I loved it!

We were staying at the Sofitel and they were having a party, so we (my mom, ashley, shay, and I) decided to go to the party there that was supposed to be hot with guys from the lakers coming through.¬† Hell, what’s not to like about a new years eve party that’s right downstairs?? Don’t have to worry about drunk drivers and once you get wasted, go right upstairs and to bed! Hehe…We got VIP tickets which included dinner, so it was ON!

The food was delicious; I give it a 4.5/5 stars.¬† I had caesar salad, some mmm mmm good macaroni, the best clam chowder ever, and some random meats that I didn’t care for (hence the lowered¬†half star).

At the table next to us, I swear there was a pimp and about 6 of his hoes.¬† The main¬†chick had on the worst outfit ever for a new years party.¬† Some¬†jeans that looked¬†like they¬†were from Rave and a neon green “mink” stole…hmm, is that REALLY what’s hot in the streets? me thinks not!¬† Redo!¬† try again in ’08

Worst part was, THAT was not the hot mess award winner of the evening!¬† I was lounging on a chaise, looking my sexiest when I look behind me to see this girl giving a guy a lapdance.¬† Okay, nothing wrong with that…then they start making out….hmm, okay….THEN her friend joins in….bow chicka wow wow!…friend takes his belt off as she’s making out with him and the other girl….caressing his, um, “package”….HOT MESS!¬† We’re AT a hotel, get a room! lol…my poor retinas

So, while I’m still lounging on the chaise, I look to my right and see this great looking booty in a beautiful dress.¬† So I’m like wow, what a terrific booty to waist ratio!¬† How can I achieve that kind of hotness, squats?¬† After staring at her ass for 20 mins, I finally look up and who do I see??!!¬† Come to find out the girl had the perfect ass to waist ratio because she’s none other than hip hop video vixen Vida Guerra!¬† I was like OMG OMG, really?¬† Heart don’t fail me now….I barely can formulate a word and my bff Ashley comes up and i put her arm in the death grip as I tell her that my body idol is standing not 5 feet from me.¬† Before I can get the sentence out, Ashley saunters over to her and¬†asks could I get a picture.¬† She smiles and agrees and I slide over like a giddy teen.¬† I forgot to even say hi or anything! lmao…Just put my hand around her waist and we took the photo!¬† Here’s me with my body idol and one of her video girl pics for an ass reference:

Me and Vida

Vida Guerra And it really is that perfect in person  *drools*  check out her site:  vidas world

Then we found a guy who just wanted to buy tons and tons of drinks, so we sipped it up big time (I swear there was like no alcohol in those damn drinks…I had like 6 and barely had a buzz going, including a shot…bah hum bug!)

All in all, it was an excellent evening and great way to bring in 2008.  Good party, sexy people, delish food, and lots of laughs.


happy new years!

Papi Intimates Fashion Show


I promised to update once I went to some of the Ocean Drive fashion week events, so voila!¬† I went to the Papi Intimates fashion show with two of my buddies, Nani and Curt.¬† It was held at the hotel Victor and I must say, I like that hotel.¬† There were mostly hot gay guys there, and because my friend Nani is such a boyish looking girl, she was the belle of the ball because they didn’t know she was a girl!!! LMAO….not only is she a girl, but a girl who likes girls, so they were TOTALLY barking up the wrong tree….what a night……I had fun….waited in line forever because Nani was late, but we made it in and had a groovy time, dancing and laughing at the drunk folks who couldn’t hold a rhythm if their mama was Beyonce and their daddy was James Brown.¬† Shame shame, I tell ya!


Makeup is Nars Taj Mahal on cheeks, purple liner on the bottom, smashbox champagne on lids, maybelline lash stylist mascara

I may be going to another event tomorrow, I’ll have to see how I feel after the game and everything.
