Gold Rush

010m002m009m

 

“On my own, pretending he’s beside me, all alone, I walk with him til morning. And I know it’s only in my mind, that I’m talking to myself and not to him…” Oh sorry, I was singing a song from Les Misérables. Why? Because I’m so excited that the movie has been nominated  for a Golden Globe. Woo Hoo!

As Hollywood scurries about trying to find the perfect frocks and fancies for Sunday night’s award ceremonies, I’ve chosen a few of my own.

The first gold and black gown is by Jason Wu. It’s dramatic, sexy and strong.

The second  is by Badgley Mischka. It’s divine, yet slightly serious with an amazing sex appeal.

The third is by Jenny Packham. A timeless, old Hollywood glamour look with a sultry allure.

I can’t wait to see the star-studded event on Sunday, full of stylish gowns and well-manicured pretty people. And, if anyone wants to get together and watch the awards (and belt out Les Misérable songs), let me know. Otherwise, I’ll be,”On my own pretending..” Oh here I go again.

Have a great day!

Honorable Mention

Picture 11Picture 12Picture 8

Riviera Magazine is OC’s premiere luxury publication, so when one of the editors contacted me for an interview, I was more than thrilled. After reading my blog, she said she was impressed with the style, the Roadkill Girl name, and the fact that I own a brick-and-mortar store here in Fullerton. We chatted over Thanksgiving weekend and then yesterday I received this link in my email.

I feel so honored to be mentioned in the Best Of 2013 issue. When you work for yourself, you don’t have anyone giving you pats on the back, so this was a much needed pat!

Thank you Riviera for the recognition and the encouragement. I’m hoping 2013 is our best year yet, and what a great way to start it. In writing!

Emerald City

When Pantone speaks, everyone listens! Pantone is the world-renowned authority on color. From designers to manufacturers to retailers to customers, Pantone is the one everyone looks to for color trends. And with that being said, the new color for 2013 is “EMERALD” aka #17-5641.

“2013 is all about a vivid, verdant shade of green that enhances our sense of well-being further by inspiring insight, as well as promoting balance and harmony,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Although there are many other exciting hues in the color spectrum this season like African Violet, Monaco Blue and Lemon Zest, the newly crowned green is said to focus our energies on growth renewal and prosperity.

I could definitely use a huge dose of renewal and prosperity. Therefore, I will be searching for items in this color not only for myself, but for my customers at Roadkill Ranch & Boutique as well.

Go green!

The Beast

Photo 440

I’m a week late in my daily blog posts for the new year. I have so many things I want to conquer this year. My brain is so full of ideas, resolutions, goals, complaints, etc.,that I’ve completely shut down. I don’t know where to start, yet I still find time to take pictures of myself and play with photo filters. (This one is the “grainy” filter.)

For the past week I’ve been trying to come up with one solid resolution. Last year it was to go through every door that was before me, and that worked on a few things but the KEY word here is FEW. Aside from the normal, eat healthy, lose weight, stay focused, and be a better person goals, I’m going to put it out there and say, my New Year’s resolution (summed up)  is to “Conquer The Beast!”

The BEAST within me, the business BEAST, the technical BEAST, anything and everything that keeps me down, is a BEAST! Therefore, I will conquer it! So, as I sit here staring into my computer camera,  I’m trying to decide which BEAST to start fighting first.

Oh, look at the time!  I better start with the get down to business BEAST! My store opens at 11 and I still have a few errands to run before I head in. (So many BEASTS, so little time!)

Happy New Year and happy Monday!
