Day 12 – A photograph of the town you live in.

I live in the City of Gardena and I was born in Torrance, CA. I consider myself a South Bay native.  South Bay includes all communities south of the 105 and west of Orange County(with the exception of Compton which is generally considered South LA. A more restrictive definition of the South Bay includes only the Beach Cities Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, El Segundo, the Palos Verdes Peninsula, Hawthorne, Gardena, Carson, Lawndale, Torrance and Long Beach.

We have two casinos in Gardena. The one to the left is Larry Flynt's Hustler Casino. You can catch him from time to time in his pimped out all GOLD wheelchair!
This is a photo of South Bay's Coast!
I'm a good 13 minute drive from the Ocean.

Day 10 – A photo of your favorite place to eat

 My favorite places to eat.....I have soo MANY, but these are unique to CA && my area.

Watts Coffee House located in Watts, CA has an all-you-can-eat southern brunch buffet that is soooo GOOD! I love this place because it's truly a hidden treasure, not many people know about it because it's in an old bank building. It has so much culture, the walls are filled with tons of memorbillia!

1827 E 103rd St
Los Angeles, CA 90002

I used to alwayssss go the Century City location off of Santa Monica at the Westfield Mall! I loved spending a nice Saturday afternoon eating here. However, they closed this location. BUT, they still have a location in Newport Beach, close to my job. Their steak is so good, their crusted pecan salmon salad was TDF && their Martini's were STRONG.

Weekend Recap: New Hair

I did a few things this weekend that I haven't done ever, or in a while. Friday night the Mr. && I went to Santa Monica pier && ate at Bubba Gump Shrimp. I completely missed out on the infamous Forest bus stop sneaker opp. :( We ended up sharing shrimper's heaven & a bucket of steamed shellfish. OMG, TDF.... we ate every last piece of food. We were laughing so hard as we left because it was a WRAP!

Saturday I wasn't feeling to well so I didn't end up going to football, after a talk with my Dad about my rest he convinced me to take it easy..and get some dang cough medicine! So I got my medicine, relaxed, went and ate lunch at the Seafood buffet. I was trying to convice the Mr. to eat this Octopus after he so bravely ate all the mussels && everything else foreign at Bubbas.

I saw a Tweet came through from @IBJeffG from @Power106LA that they were right by where we were eating. I walked up and Jeff G approached me. I knew the voice but I didn't recognize him. I love SPORTS DUDE!!! LOL I've been listening to him do AM sports for about 3 years now. Anyway, he hooked us up with tickets to the Orange County Auto Show in Anaheim, 2 movie tickets, 2 shirts & a couple folders. DOPE CAT!

While at the Auto Show I found my new favorite autos for 2011, the GMC Terrain, it's such a cute little SUV. The picture makes it look larger than what it is.  Also, the  2011 Honda Cross Tour. OMG I feel in love because it similar to the Accord but larger. So sleek and nice inside!! xoxo

So I decided to cut my mane. I handed my boyfriend my shears and let him to the honors. LOL I cut off a good 6-7 inches off the back. I died it dark mahogany and waaaallaaaa....LOL

My eyes are a holiday palette by Landcome that I've had for ages. 

I have Miss Ross by Mac on my lips w/ Pop Gloss by Givenchy over it.

Just a little sassy pucker for the lip color! :)

Day 8 – A song to match your mood

Keri Hilson - Turn your swagg on remix....

Day 7 - Your Dream Wedding

My dream day would combine a swanky black tie Los Angeles wedding with a killer LA rooftop hotel view. Since I'm just "blogging' && had 10 minutes to come up with this DREAM wedding....Here's my crack at it...:)

As I've stated a thousand times, Id pick a place like Oviatt Penthouse in downtown LA and would have a roof top wedding..... I'd love for my wedding to be afternoon around 4 and end at night.
Not the dress, but love the photography of the dress in the hall way of this historical building

I'd probably have an intimate wedding with not toooo many people. I love the idea of having my bridesmaids wear black gowns or deep red.

Love the black dress the bride is wearing in the upper right hand corner.

I would die for live entertainment, I know my Dad's band would for sure play but I'd kill for someone to sing to us. Like Debarge, Monica, Jaheim, or Teena Marie.

This is just one of several...I'd also die for a beach wedding, laid back...

Day 6 – A photo of an animal you’d love to keep as a pet

I love Dogs... 
I would love to have a Dog
When I'm able to get one, I would love to have a Boxer && English Springer Spaniel
I've had both of these types of dogs while growing up and they're very smart dogs, easy to train, very loyal && great with children.

Love the brindle with long white socks

Whats your favorite type of dog?
