Christmas at Disneyland

For the past few days I was turned back into a twelve year old girl. If you love Disneyland and have never been at Christmastime you must go! Special decorations everywhere and it even snows inside the park on Christmas day. It was extremely crowded however so that's something to keep in mind if you're taking tiny kids. 


 I also had the chance to visit California Adventures for the first time. I didn't have very high expectations since I had heard there wasn't much there so I was really surprised at how much fun I had. I absolutely loved Soaring Over California and the Tower of Terror absolutely scared the bejeezus out of me. Another must visit is the Animation Building where there are all sorts of fun interactive games. While there I also overcame a fear I've had since childhood. I went on an upside-down roller coaster! Lame, I know, but it was a milestone for a chicken like me!

Surprisingly Delicious Vegan Cupcakes

For my lovely friend Carla's birthday, I decided to attempt vegan baking for the very first time. I am of Danish descent so melted butter runs in my veins and I thought there was absolutely no way vegan treats could be delicious. However, I'd been treated to dinner recently at the wonderful vegan restaurant Millennium in San Francisco and that gave me some hope. Chef Chloe's award-winning raspberry tiramisu cupcake recipe had been on my radar for a while so I bought the necessary ingredients (coconut oil? who knew?!) and got to work. I topped my cupcakes with teeny tiny plastic deer to make them party worthy and they were a hit!

Party Perfect

The party season has officially begun and I am LOVING IT. Being currently unemployed means I can't buy myself any new dresses but that doesn't mean I can't look! I swooned a little when I found this lovely frock...

The Head and the Heart

Happy December kids! My friend Kevin Smokler and I were having donuts this morning and he asked what I've been listening to lately so I had to tell him about The Head and the Heart. Their album has been on repeat in my car for weeks now since my friend Jenn took me to see them. Have a listen to some songs and then come see them at The Independent on December 12th. I'll be there!

Nov 30, 2010, hey.

I haven't blogged since 2008 but we're back! YAY! Let's not focus on what we've missed. Let's instead focus on what's important...these shoes. Bless you, Kate Spade. Perfect for New Year's Eve don't you think?
