California Dreamin (part 1) Santa Monica

Meet My Awesome Italian Friends:
Valentino & Antonio
I've always visited LA since I was a kid, but apart from Disneyland, SixFlags & other theme parks I never did the touristy stuff. Until now! It was pretty cool to see all the places you hear about. (one day I should do the touristy stuff in Atlanta too).


Valentino was our guide, and he's one of the coolest & nicest people I know. Antonio was so funny, he just flew in from Italy the night before, and this was his first time in America, he didn't speak much English, and I don't know any Italian so it was a lot of fun, frustration with the language barrier, laughs, only Italian food, and tons of alcohol :)


first up the world famous Santa Monica Pier
200 Santa Monica Pier
Santa Monica, CA 90401-3126
(310) 458-8900

Me :)




omg childhood memories!!!! I remember these were all the rage!!
Reminded me of Sex & the City

I took this pic because people where fishing on the pier - cool

Then we went to Muscle Beach! which was a close drive from the pier.






Hola Papi!! Hey Sexi!
People were really working out!! I was like? For real? this is like TV.
didn't want to bore yall with more workout/ equipment pictures. But it's crazy it's like a free gym in the heat, right by the beach. crazy!

You know what holidays mess up your workout, before this trip I used to hit the gym like it was a drug. Then during the trip I was freaked out there wasn't a gym on day 1. After this trip I went back to couch potato mode, Its quite hard to start working out when you stop.
LMAO!!!! Y'all Want Some Medical Marijuana? 

Dr's In! but We didn't go In.

We decided to go eat, drink & be merry!

We went to Il Fornaio della Spiaggia. Valentino had been there several times & liked it. The food was great, our waiter was hilarious and so nice, hey he complimented me a lot so I love him!. He kept speaking Italian to EVERY GUEST regardless of if you spoke English, Italian, French or Chinese. He could speak English but he would often reply you in Italian, and the guests had no clue if he understood their order & he would look at us and laugh, It was hilarious,.
We sat on the Patio
I don't remember how many bottles we had, so much bruschetta, and a ton of  other food & dessert. I remember there was this sexy man seating across from me, feeling so cool in his shades lol.

My delicious Plate! I finished it all!

Are you hiding?

I know I am. One of the hardest things to do is to fully be myself. It's much easier to follow a safe path, rather than venture out into the unknown. It's much easier to fantasize.  It's much harder to be yourself when what you are is not the status quo. It's so hard believe & chase a dream when I'm so scared of failure; negative judgement by those close to me, and filled self-doubt. But perhaps fighting those fears, and embracing your light is what it means to truly grow up.

"No one lights a lamp in order to hide it behind a door" but isnt that what we do? we should all seek the courage to stop hiding our lights.

I don't know much people who have fully accepted who they are, flaws & all. I haven't met people who truly follow their passions & chase their dreams. Most of us are still running, avoiding who we are.

I guess it's all about weighing options, in my case I don't have a kid to consider, a husband to worry about, I only have me but yet I'm filled with excuses. And still don't have the guts to say "Fuck it! This is what I am, This is my passion, This is what I want" but I'm taking baby steps.

To the few living without masks, shining your lights brightly & letting yourselves grow, congratulations!

How to Put on a Condom & Fun Sex Awareness Videos (F.L.F)


SEX: religion, morals, schools and everyone says abstain from it if you're not married. How I see it people are gonna do it regardless like they've done throughout history, so if you're gonna do it, do it right &safely.

I'm obsessed with movies, soap operas etc. So today's Freakin.Love.Friday is entertaining & educational. It's a mix of soap opera style short sex (/ sex ed) movies & videos on how to put a condom (male condoms). so save this page & show it to your friends.

**no porn ...PG 13**
Prevention is better than cure.

Video 1: Jasmine & trifling Paul


I remember questioning a friend, on if she had asked her then-current-guy if he had been tested, she laughed like I had lost my mind, and told me it wasn't sexy to ask him that. I was like fuck being sexy, you better ask him & kill that moment, rather than wake up with some STD

Video 2: How to Use a Condom Correctly
(((edited: CORRECT VIDEO)))


Video 3: Christina and Ruben/ Rueben & Tim (ATL I see u!! lol just wrap it up)



I dont see why people are shy too ask. If you're planning to screw his / her brains out you better man up & ask if they've been tested. Shit ask to see the test. Best believe I dragged a guy i was dating to get tested for HIV (fuck trust I wasn't taking his word. some "Ripleys believe it or not" could happen & I'd catch it from "kissing" him), he respected me for it, we went on a free HIV testing night here in ATL, STD testing was a diff day, and I looked at that result *whew* he wasn't lying lol. I might have a brain and all but best belief I used to be scared I'd catch something of my ex roommate cuz we shared the same toilet. 40 ppl in a yr was a tiny bit much.

A lot of college campuses do free testing, when you go to your gyno you could also tell them to test everything, std, hiv, breast lumps, herpes, trust me I dont play, even if you think someone is the virgin mary better get them tested!!!

Video 4: How to use a condom (it makes references to uncircumcised penises)


I'm gonna beat it into you! over & over again! (oh gosh that sounded dirty >_<) Video 5: How to use a condom --- Ladies this has a Valentine's feel

Last Video 6: Theresa & Luis



sure we've all done stupid shit *guilt* be it kissing a random person you just met or more.  but it's a new year, we're all grown, so protect yourself, get tested, get your partner tested 'cause fucking without protection is so 90's. this is the 21st century experiment with different condoms and stop being shy. & if no one wants to teach you, watch these videos over & over again & practice with bananas, carrots, and cucumbers. and ask your dr to be sure, but if your like me & your uncle is your dr, then just watch these over & over again.

Badass Fafi x Adidas Leather Jacket

so I was on 80's Purple, and I saw this badass fafi leather jacket & fell in love!! I just called the adidas store by my house, they don't have it yet, but the current season is on sale.
so these are from the Adidas/ Fafi Spring/ Summer 2010 Collection! You know I love fafinettes! C'mon I was even a fafinette for Halloween.
other image sources: Fafi's blog, Hypebeast, & High Snobette.
They also have other apparel & sneakers.


My fave kicks! wtf are kicks?? I need to go to urbandictionary.com, is it just Nike, converse, or everything: Stan Smith
Ecstasy 
According to fafi
all the pieces are inspired by my own closet, stuff I founded in vintage stores or during my trips. This is a very colorful spring/summer 2010 collection to celebrate the end of a cold winter, good times with friends, get noticed at airports and music festivals!
ZX
The lady at the adidas store said she can see some of the stuff, but she's not sure if the jacket will come to the store at Lenox, I really hope so, so I can get it & my fave sneakers above (the 1st one)

Beautiful Agony: facettes de la petite mort (F.L.F)

I haven't done Freakin.Love.Friday's in a while! where art and naughtiness come to play and get you ready for the weekend. So I decided to start this year off with a bang.
pic stolen from amero

Have you heard of Beautiful Agony, if you have, naughty.... naughty..... It's basically a site where people take their "O" faces a.k.a during orgasm. and It also has videos. So you can see a picture of someone or a video of their face/ shoulders while they have sex or masturbate, but you only see their face, expressions, hear their voice, breathing patterns etc. male, female, couples sometimes etc. So it's not your typical porn. I guess there's nothing wrong in watching faces, you look at my pretty face everyday, but the difference is you know what their doing, and it might get you off mentally or creatively.


Videos
Buzz Humor has a Scarlett Johansson Look Alike, you can watch it there free
1. Scarlette Johansen here
or here





2. LOL this video is funny!! couldnt finish it I got to finish this post




3. Bad ass song by Jean-Michel Jarre called Beautiful Agony!



According to barepause
La petite mort, French for "the little death", is a reference for the refractory period following sexual orgasm. The term has generally been interpreted to describe the post-orgasmic fainting spells or unconsciousness some lovers experience after an intense orgasmic experience. More widely, it can refer to the spiritual release that comes with orgasm, or a short period of melancholy or transcendence, as a result of the expenditure of the "life force".

I'm not crazy about porn, i prefer litereotica, what can i say? I'm truly a geek. watched it with some friends and we hated the story line (yea yea people dont watch it for story lines). I would rather watch a movie like Unforgivable, Trois or maybe Zane on cinemax with a truck load of sex than just bad porn. So if i to watch porn, I'd skip the hardcore bumping uglies, and watch the pretty stuff.

So if you ever wondered what people looked like while they orgasm, and regular people as a matter of fact, then this site is for you. Or if your just curious.
ps: it's a paid site
pps: you can submit yours

Site: Beautiful Agony

that's all for today's Freakin Love Fridays ;)

Dear Neighbor

edited Feb 10:

background image on my letter was by Gary Minish and he'll send me anonymous insults or maybe worse if I dont take it down. So I'll put up a different letter later.

95% of the time I always use creative commons images, and do not intend to steal anyone's work or take credit for it, and everyone knows Im super crazy about crediting everyone on the net cause I know what it's like when people steal my shit.even when it's creative commons, I sometimes email the people letting them know i used it. & I always try to find stuff that can be modified, so If I made a mistake my bad! but dont come at me anon, when you can be polite about it, I said the background was buy u, and linked it, didnt know it couldnt be modified, found it on a different site, and went above and beyond to find the artists website to link, hence from my linking him, he found this, and left me some anonymous comment on Formsping! formspring!! yup formspring, where people anonymously ask me crazy questions like if im a virgin; my favorite food, or makeup tips . Thanks man for using email, and I woulda probably been apologizing profusely. now Im just irritated.

Have your neighbors done anything to piss you off? I really almost put half of this letter in their mailbox. *sigh*

When A Bombchell Falls...

... she falls very hard.

Garrett Neff for the S/S 2010 campiagn of Blanco photographed by Hunter & Gatti (source)



song: When I Fall in Love - Nat King Cole


I can't help it. I'm always optimistic. I love hard.  I let my guard down. I keep trying because when the right person comes, I want to give my all, with no guards. But  the more times I fall & hurt myself, the more scared I am of getting up to try again.


...she falls freely
(movie: The Notebook)
 (source)



....sometimes blindly

...& she falls over & over again.

Daniel Henney (from Seducing Mr Perfect)

... she falls deeply & passionately with everything in life & it's sometimes overwhelming




...in lust ... in love .... with hope ... in heartbreak ...and in love again

James Blake (my sister is so sad Australian Open is over, she actually watched it for the sports) I remember him  from when he had the dreads! my limited tennis knowledge. gosh he's beautiful!


while starting this post, I was watching vh1's Storyteller's for the 1st time with John Mayer, and this song came on. & I thought how perfect for this post! it just fitted the mood & vibe. Your body is wonderland :)




...but no matter what! though it might take some time, she'll stand up high again ;) cuz that's what we do

Love Bombchell!
