Best Healthy Recipes

So many recipe videos, so little time! Well, I’ve actually had quite a bit of time on my hands these past few weeks, so I took to YouTube to see what meal inspirations it had to offer.  Check out a few of my favorites:

Comment in the video and let me know where to find your favorite healthy recipes.  It’s pilot season, mama needs to look good on camera!

New Year’s Fitness Resolution Made Easy

We all know the routine: every year, at the start of the year, we set some idealistic (and sometimes lofty) goals about getting in the best shape of our lives. Eat healthier; get a gym membership; actually GO to the gym; have a six pack. Sound familiar?  Although I am a firm believer in the importance of setting goals, for some reason it seems as though when it comes to fitness we tend to bite of more than we can chew. I mean look at me, I STILL haven’t mastered my acrobatic skills on the uneven parallel bars!

I think the reason fitness goals tend to elude people so easily is because it’s often hard to know where to start.  Recently I’ve partnered up with a really great and free iPhone app called Applause to create some fitness and health videos.  And here to start you off on the right foot with your new year’s resolution is a guide on where to start at the gym: with full body workouts!

So what are you new year’s resolutions?  And what do you think of the workouts featured in the video?

XBox + Wine = XBox Wine

Turns out I have a knack for creating things. Not useful things like, say a bookshelf or an app that helps you avoid your ex boyfriends, but entertaining things…like web series and TV shows.  This fall I combined my love of gaming with my love of wine with hilarious and oft disturbing results.

Enjoy all 8 episodes of XBox Wine!

#Latina30under30

I can talk about how I’ve been absent from my blog, or about how I plan on ‘relaunching’ by the new year because I have things worth writing about, but nah! Instead, I leave you with photos from last night’s Latina Magazine 30 under 30 party. Enjoy!

Back to theater in LA Views!!

Hello my people!

Just dropping in to share a bit of exciting news: I will be taking to the stage once again to perform in a play (actually two plays within a series of shorts) called LA Views. It’s been a few years since I’ve done theater and I’m very excited. 

We open on May 2 and I’m in the throws of rehearsal as I type :-)

Performances will be Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the month of May. Visit the Company of Angels website for more information and to buy your tickets. See you opening night!

Pin-up for the Oscars

When asked to describe my (preferred) personal style, I like to say that I’m a sexy librarian with a naughty streak.  I love vintage style clothing of all eras, but the pin-up look is one that I’ve pined after for years.  The pin-up silhouette suits my figure, and I find it to be feminine, sexy and versatile.  A few months ago my best friend/stylist and I happened upon a pop-up vintage sale hosted by Pinup Girl Clothing where we found this beautiful piece by Laura Byrne’s Black Label.

I fell in love with it instantly and held on to it until it could have a proper debut. And debut it did at a Skinnygirl Cocktails soirée hosted by Bethenny Frankel in honor of the 2014 Oscars!

I paired my pink leopard print dress with victory rolls, red lipstick and smokey green eyes. The earrings are an 80s consignment store find.

This time next year I’ll hopefully be posting pics of the dress I’ll be wearing while AT the Oscars!

Cheers to all of the talented actors and filmmakers that were either nominated or won last night.
