Tag I'm it...

I wasn't tagged by anyone but here I go...

what is your current obsession?

finding a new career and creating art.

what's your horoscope and how do you relate to it?

All that glitters is not gold. If it seems too good to be true today, then it is.


Sometimes you need to nudge the skeptical part of your mind and make sure that it's paying attention -- and today is definitely one of those times! Something's not quite right, and you should see it for what it is.

My response on how I relate to it: WTF? Whatever...

what are you wearing today?
My "I'm at home day today" denim sundress with paint on it.

what was the last thing you bought?
OPI nail polish from Sephora...coral color and Laura Mercier powder....actually didn't buy since I used my birthday gift card.  

what's for dinner?
Possibly PHO....don't know just yet.

what is your favorite decade?
70's and 90' the cars and clothing from the 70's, love the hip hop music from the 90's!

what are your "must haves" for fall?
I would have to say boots and a cute handbag in a deep red or purple with gold hardware

are you a cat or dog person?
Both but probably more a dog person. Some cats scare me.

what is your favorite piece of clothing?
My grey pleated skirt!

what do you do and what is your dream job?
Currently, I'm unemployed while making artwork on the dream job would be to actually make money off of my artwork!

I also love to eat so something that involves food would be awesome!

what do you consider a fashion faux pas?
pants that have a stupid word written across the back
an outfit that's all one pattern...for example, all leopard print (including accessories!)
outfits that match the color of shoes, accessories and nail polish
outfits that create a muffin top....ladies! just get the one size larger and you'll actually look slimmer! 

describe your personal style.
a little bit of everything my way.

three styling tips that always work for you.
compact is a must!
lip gloss

what are you looking forward to?
the rest of my life! I'm thankful for what I DO have vs. what I DON'T have....

New works...

Here are some photos of new paintings I've been doing a series of. You can't see them on these photos but the canvases have a lace trim around the edge to give it a sweet quality to them.

Got art?

Nancy and I went to the Renegade craft fair at SF's Fort Mason Center. I was sooo amazed at all the great vendors with amazing work! Below are a couple pieces I bought to frame and put up in our place.

Here's a dorky picture of us as a farmer and a hot dog!

Below is a random night photo of Alysa and Carlos, my bike riding partners in crime!

Bike riding....part 2

A couple weeks ago, Carlos, Alysa and I rode our bikes to Alum Rock, hiked up to Eagle Rock and rode back. Talk about kicking my ass! I was so tired from all the uphill riding and hiking I did but in the end, it felt so great!

Here's the actual Eagle Rock I climbed to get a view of San Jose. Pretty cool but once I got up top, I realized that I'm a little scared of heights!

On the way back, Carlos ran into a crazy nail that gave him a pretty bad flat! We ended the adventure with a awesome bowl of pho from Tofu Com Chay...YUM!

Doggie love...

I adore my two sons and one nephew....nothing like unconditional love!

Calling out to all the ladies....

Get your gears ready for this Friday!

Bike riding....

Today was a very physical day! My sister and I got up at 5am to go running, I came back home and then got up again to go bike riding all the way to Los Gatos with my honey, Carlos and my friend Alysa. I don't think I've ever rode so far! At one point I felt like turning back around but I kept going....didn't want to give up. There were a couple uphills but I didn't want to get off my bike because then I would feel like I wasn't trying my best. I put my bike into first gear and rode slowly until I got to the top. Carlos even came back around to give me a helping hand by pushing me a little...

Once I made it past the uphill, I knew I made it past the hardest part. I'm so proud of myself! Didn't have a chance to take any time!

Here's a random photo of a alley cat I took behind Empire Seven Studios.
