{Cupcakes > Salad}

I try and eat healthy, really I do. Unfortunately I moved within walking distance of the most amazing cupcakery and so sometimes - tonight for example - my dinner consists of a cupcake or two.

Maybe something to work on in 2012?New Year's Resolutions:
1. Watch less reality TV.
2. Shop less and save more.
3. Address cupcake addiction.

What are your New Year's Resolutions?...and unlike me will you actually keep them?

{I'm Allergic to Bad Dates}

I spent several hours trying to draft the perfect post to describe my date last night, but gave up after several failed attempts to fully relay its glory.

In the end, my evening can be best summarized in just a few sentences.

I faked an allergic reaction to escape a bad {second} date.

Imagine a man slaving over a stove to make you rack of lamb, garlic bread, and pasta with homemade sauce...meanwhile, you are pretending to itch uncontrollably - turning bright red in the process - and politely excuse yourself go home and take a Benadryl.

I might have also texted him a photo of my recent allergy test results to seal the deal after I safely made it home.

And this people is why I shouldn't be allowed to date - or vote.

{Kleenex! Claritin! Vodka! Oh My!}

It's the little things about living in Los Angeles that shock me the most.

- The traffic.

- The taxes.

- The fact that you can buy liquor at pharmacies.

This morning while waiting in line to purchase my Kleenex and allergy medicine at CVS, the loud speaker comes on: "Employee assistance needed in the liquor aisle. Employee assistance in liquor."

My face looked something like this:












And then I turned around - expecting a pharmacy of puzzled patrons - but no, apparently this is perfectly normal at 10 AM in Los Angeles.

So naturally I did the only logical thing, I stepped out of line and went and bought some vodka...and some Cheetos.

{Warning: May Cause Side Effects.}

Maybe it's time I stop taking my sleeping pills.

This morning I woke up surrounded by an empty bag of baked Lay's potato chips - which I don't remember eating - and thanks to text message evidence, I apparently also agreed to five different dates this weekend.

I'm not quite sure which I'm more ashamed about.

{Dating in Los Angeles}


I'm single for the first time in nearly seven years. Maybe I'm just out of practice or maybe it is dating in LA, but I'm pretty sure dating is utterly exhausting.

Being new to the city, I joined an online dating site - a first for me. Needless to say, it has been quite the experience.

One of the e-mails I received was too good not to share:

"Nice profile...you're soooo beautiful. :) If you'd like to get a better look at me you can see a funny clip from a TV show I was on (The Millionaire Matchmaker) if you google different millionaires. It only works on a computer not a cell phone. If you're interested in my work there's a clip from the UFC with my logo center octagon (youtube liddel vs white). Nice to meet you :)"

For the first time in my life I was left truly speechless.

{Welcome to Hollywood! What's your dream?}

In the last six weeks my life has completely changed. I quit my job in the great state of Texas, broke up with my boyfriend of more than six years, and packed my bags for Los Angeles.

Please join me - new friends and old - as I start this crazy adventure in search of friends, fashion, a career, and maybe even love.
