I Want Candy

Dylan Lauren - She's the owner of what may be the largest candy shop in the world. And she's Ralph Lauren's daughter. The 30-something is known for pioneering a concept that brings together art, fashion and candy.

I have been on her website all morning and am wanting everything she sells. Since today is a rainy day here in the valley, I thought this was suitable!

Chez Nous

After we left Bikini Lounge, we got in our cars and went about half a mile up the street to Chez Nous. Another hole-in-the-wall club, but this one had live music. When I stepped into the doors, I knew I wasn't in Kansas anymore. It was real dark only candles luminating the club. The band was doing their set and it was real funky/soul/blues/jazz type of sound. They were incredible. If you ever have a chance, hit up this spot. You won't be disappointed.

Bikini Lounge

It was couples night on Friday night. Summer, Eric, the bf and I met up and hit some hole-in-the-wall places in downtown phoenix. Let me just say it was refreshing and so much fun to do something totally different than usual. We first hit up Bikini Lounge...real "Cheers" type of place. Seems like everyone knew everyone, and even though this was the case, they were still friendly to us outsiders. The lounge was decorated in well, Island stuff (tiki's, bamboo, etc) and the music was again, very islandy (yes, that's a word. LOL).

2012 Movie

Here's a sneak peak at the new movie being released about 2012. If you don't know what 2012 is, it's when the Mayans predicted the world to end. Or at least it will be the end of the world as we know it. Take that how you will.

The Plot:
“With the Mayan calendar ending in 2012, a large group of people must deal with natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions, typhoons and glaciers.” (Source: IMDb)

Director Roland Emmerich tells more about his source of inspiration for the movie 2012:
“…This whole movie I’m doing next was inspired by just the phenomenon of the Internet when you type in Google, ‘2012′, you get 240 million hits. That’s a lot. And it’s just, so many people write about it, believe it, that our world comes to an end in 2012. I said wow. I kind of said before I will never do a disaster movie again. I said, for this idea I have to do it again.”


Ha-ha..Chino is not a pretty girl!

Britney: For the Record!

I can't wait! Already getting my DVR set for this!

How it works:
Try samples of Sephora's most sizzling scents
Take your pick of the fragrance you like best
Trade in your scent certificate for a Full-Size Bottle of your favorite.

This would be an excellent gift for yourself or others...especially if you're like me and don't know which fragrance to choose


The dunk xchange came to Phoenix for the first time this past Saturday. It was a great turn out. The music was great, the people were great, and of course, the sneakers were great. Oh yeah and shouts out to Gary (founder of dxc); it was great seeing you after all these years. Small fuckin world may I add. I knew Gary from back in the day when he DJ'd....he DJ'd my 21st birthday party. LOL. Lookin forward to the next one!

My pics may not be as good as Baby P's, but whatever! LOL.

Red and Meth

Redman and Method Man graced Arizona with their presence Friday night at the Marquee Theater. Let me be the first to say the show was pretty WACK! Was none too thrilled with their performance. I have seen both Red and Meth together in concert and separately and each of those past times I was never disappointed, until last Friday's show. It seemed awkward and put together so fast. It was more of an open mic night than it was a concert. Red and Meth brought all of their "brothers" with them and let them do a few songs each. Bor-Ing! I was there to see Red and Meth not some show and tell ninja! Boo! Thankfully we got our tix from a friend because I would have demanded my money back. Good lookin out on the tix Eric! Always fun to hang out with you and Summertime! That was the highlight of my night.
