So it seems our lovely Lauren Conrad has been busy designing and working on her latest line which has been released and sold exclusively at Kohl’s. She originally designed a collection that got her feet wet in the fashion world and I’m glad she’s decided to move in the direction she has. A lot of people may not have taken her very seriously as a designer, but her latest collection, I think, really proves she should be designing clothes [on top of everything else she has going on].
Although I don’t shop at Kohl’s, I know a lot of young girls who may watch the Hills or just be a Lauren Conrad fans do shop at Kohl’s. What it says to me is that it’s accessible. It’s not an intimidating designer approach. It’s tangible and it’s a smart move, Miss LC.
I love that Lauren has decided to model her own clothes. Another smart move. The collection is pretty cute and current. It follows trends without being too much or going too far. It looks comfortable and chic and it’s a style women of a wider age group can wear.
Much like Lauren Conrad, I have hopes of branching out and building an empire. Shh, let’s keep between you and I, though. 😉
You can check out her entire collection and find out more about LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s here.
I got a chance to watch The Last Exorcism earlier last week and I was excited to watch. I like movies about the supernatural and specifically about possessions or exorcisms. I think it’s mainly because I’m such a skeptic when it comes to those things that I’m really drawn to movies about the supernatural. It’s almost like I’m challenging them to make me a believer. Well, with Eli Roth & Strike’s The Last Exorcism, I believed.
It’s filmed like a documentary and there’s such a realistic quality to the storytelling, specially in the beginning. It’s a gradual process in which the viewer begins to question what’s going on and tries to put the pieces together, trying to make sense of everything. It wasn’t very gory or overly scary, it’s rated PG-13, but it’s a fun movie to watch.
I’d for sure recommend it. It’s a good exorcism movie. Not too terribly predictable. Entertaining, for sure.
Will you become a believer?
Happy Labor Day! I had a crazy labor day weekend. Friday night a few friends and I went out to a bar in Long Beach called Panama Joe’s and got VIP seating, prices, and food! Who knew food at a bar would be so delicious!
Saturday I attended a wedding with Tony. Let me tell you…this wedding celebration was authentically Mexican. No joke. Not only was delicious Mexican food served, but there was a live Spanish band performing and at one point there were traditional Chinelo dancers. Drums and trumpets, people jumping and dancing, it was quite the celebration.
After the wedding party we went to another AE party. It was a mardi gras theme and we got there way too early. Well, before long everyone arrived including some “hot totties.” Everyone was up in arms about hot guys at the party. It was a lot of fun.
But that, my friends, was not the end of Saturday night. Oh, no! We went out to a club in Anaheim afterwards where there were many many latino boys and girls. Last time I went to this club I was a bit “outspoken” and in a peculiar mood. This time around I was surprised to find that I ran into a a few guys I’ve dated. It was terribly awkward at first, but as usual, the party went on and I just had a good time. Oh! Tony and I decided to check out the dance floor on the second level and were pleasantly surprised to find a Mexican drag queen [more like tranny] lip syncing a Spanish ballad. How do I know it was a tranny, you may ask? Because she had boobs. In fact, she had one out and wearing a pastie. Oh yeah! Oh, and she was speaking rapid-fire Spanish that went a little something like this:
“blahblahblahblah-PENDEJA! blahblahblahblah-CULERO! blahblahPINCHEblahblah blahCONCHA– blahblahblah-NO-SE-CREAN-blahblahblahPUTA! blahblah-VIVAMEXICO!!!“
The crowd went wild and were laughing their asses off. I was just trying to keep up but I was very entertained. Is there a Mexican version of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” perhaps? Hmm…maybe I should create it! Genius!
It turned out to be quite an eventful night for both of us and it was a great time.
Last Wednesday we also paid Club Lucky a visit at the House of Blues in Anaheim. That was also a wild and crazy fun night. I busted out my destroyed white skinny jeans. Let me just say this: those jeans can get me into a lot of trouble or get me cast in a reality TV show. 🙂
I’ve been pretty busy with school and setting up classes. I’m glad I have a set schedule now and I hope next semester I’ll be able to get all the classes I need to transfer. Selling textbooks has also taken up a bit of my time.
I post flyers around school advertising my textbooks from last semester and I sell them to students directly. Uhm…selling textbooks feels a lot like selling drugs. “Hey, did you bring it?” “Where can I meet you?” “Could you cut me a deal?” “What are you wearing? I’ll meet you by the building.” Talk about SUPER shady business. But in selling my textbooks I also learned that I’m an honest businessman. I try and help my fellow students make sure they’re buying the correct textbook. I’m SUCH a Mother Theresa. My good friend Jessica once told me, “You’re like…a female Jesus.”
So even with all the going out, I constantly find myself thinking about what I have to do the next day and how much homework I have. It’s sad to think that while I’m shaking what my momma gave me I’m also thinking about writing reports for my speech communication class. Hmm…
They had a great sale at my workplace for the weekend. It was 20% off all merchandize. I know a lot of stores had some great sales. Did anyone take advantage?
Oh, I decided to give up soda and try to eat healthier. I think this is my second week and although it’s difficult, it feels good make that effort. It’s kind of odd because it feels like I’m learning how to eat all over again. I’ve just been talking about getting healthy for a while and I wanted to take some steps in maintaing a healthier diet without going overboard with a crazy cleanse or something. I’m also staying active with my yoga class and I attended a dance class last week that nearly killed me, but it was an extraordinary workout. Step by step, I’m getting there.
Hope the weekend was good for everyone, too.
