I am a Beach fiend. No vacation is truly a vacation without some beach or pool time (with my preference leaning towards a beach). This year I decided to surprise my mom and take her to Hawaii for her Birthday. Win win in my book. I not only became the favorite daughter giving THE best gift, but I also get to escape the frosty winters of the desert and bathe in the sun. A girl couldn’t ask for more!
Prep: Pedicure, Check. Bathing Suit, Check. Sunglasses, Check. I mean who needs anything else when they plan to be a beach bum. *Disclaimer*: I packed waaaay more than the prep list listed.
At this point you are probably wondering which beach… Well with No further a due I present to you Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii!!!!
I will be blogging wanderlust photos of the island of Oahu… stay tuned.
Today I explored Los Angeles, CA and saw a preserved Tar Pit. If you are able to spend some time at LACMA it’s a fun experience. They have tidbits of information that explain the tar pits, the Hancock family that donated the land in 1917 and you can see the Mammoth Remains in a great museum. Hours and Tickets can be found here.
The property is huge and I was able to see the Urban Lights. Which are amazing in their simplicity and design.
Remember we always don’t have to travel to the ends of the earth to just get away and delve into a new experience or culture.
I LOVE ADELE. She is one of my favorite artist. So when she begin teasing us of new releases. I became anxious and craving the new material!!
Adele’s voice is like heaven opening up and stirring our souls deep abyss. The soulfulness has been extremely missed, so I think the world stopped when they saw she was releasing an album. Entitled 25, Adeles has been giving life with snippets of her music. She explains the new direction that the album will take.
I love how she shares her vulnerability with us, however I was skeptical that she could deliver something as amazing as the past while being in a happy space. I was so wrong, If Hello the new release is indicative of the album. We are in for a treat. Listen to Adele: Hello :) Its soul stirring.
Living in Las Vegas always gives the allure to friends, family and just everyone else that I am a party girl and can get them into everything for free. ::Side Eye:: Shoot, I can barely get myself into stuff free!!! The truth is I am a homebody, Le Sigh. The only time I leave my area is for deeply discounted events, locals only deals and most importantly free shit. With that being said, it is impossible to tell my friends and family I don’t know where to go or what there is to do. Really its sacrilegious and truly unacceptable to utter those phrases lol So because of this I have become the local tour guide and event coordinator for all things Vegas.
So that means you Flirts are in luck. I will be able to pass all my insider knowledge on to you so you look like a Rockstar to your peoples when you come. I have curated itineraries and things to do with reviews, so you have an amazing time whenever you are in Vegas Baby!!
Simply said, Your’e Welcome :D
As many of you know already, Sundays are Brunchdays aka Boozy Brunch Sundays. So in accordance with the weekly tradition we decided to try a new Brunch experience at the Red Rock Hotel and Spa.
Mercadito proclaimed that Sundays were a no mas pantalones experiences. For 25 bucks you would get a variety of flavored bottomless mimosas and any 1 food item off the menu. WHAT!! I was sold. By sold I mean we made it a priority to find the bottom of all the deliciously flavored mimosas offered. They had a smorgasbord too. Pineapple, guava, mango, blueberry, strawberry and so on and so forth… To be real the rest of the flavors escape me, could be the persistent overflowing of mimosas the waiter kept coming wit, but who really knows these things? One thing I do know is that the well never ran dry. Oh, the food was super tasty and that is not an after thought either.
So if you find yourself in North West Vegas and want a yummy Brunch experience go check them out.

The other day my older Brother was looking for someone to go with him to play on the Lets Make A Deal Show, which airs on CBS and is hosted by Wayne Brady. out in Los Angeles. I jumped at the chance to go. I love Sunny California and have never been on a game show. I figured I could add this to my bucket list and then scratch it off lol, very much like an amended Bucket List Item. Don’t judge Me.
You have to dress up in a crazy costume and have a big personality to get pulled up on stage. They interview each contestant when they are outside standing in line to get a sense of who is out there and who to start watching to pull up and play the games with Wayne Brady. Now honestly, I’m more a reserved sarcastic person that can be outgoing, but I was in the land of Actors and Actresses that bubble high energy. I was no competition thus was not one of the “chosen few” to have a crack at winning some free Shit. When we were brought on to set, they sat us in a corner and kept reiterating that no seat is a bad seat. I believed it at first… Until this old craggedy wrinkle, faced geezer was sat next to us and kept on falling asleep. That is a bad seat!! For real for real a TERRIBLE seat, cameras cant pan on you because she is over there slobbering and knocked out. That means no camera time for us. Sad Face.
Either way we went in and laughed, danced, screamed and had a good ole time. Even though I didn’t end up winning a car or money, family time on set of Lets Make A Deal was an awesome experience.
Until next time Love You Always… Misty
