Meet Perez Hilton

19 12 2007

perezbanner1.jpg   I don’t know about you , but I am addicted  to gossip. It’s my drug of choice.  I scan the gossip rags  a few times a day. OK, it’s like every 10 minutes, but can you blame me,  these celebs are so crazy.  There are  couple of good one out, but my all time fave site is Perez Hilton.  That site has the latest, breaking news and it damn funny. Perez tells people how it is  and he doesn’t hold  back just the way I  like it – mean and dirty.Well if you love him or hate him (Seriously, who are  you people) then you have a chance to meet the Queen of all Media at  Kitson on Saturday, December 22 as  he launch his  t-shirt collection. Talk about Christmas coming early.  Not only can you buy his funny tees, but you will be able to me his highness and get him to sign it as well. Ooh, I’m so there. I wondering if he would tell me some insider tidbits. That alone is worth the trip. December 22Kitson  2pm-4p 115 N Robertson BlvdLos Angeles, CA 90048

Gen Art’s Shop By Design:Recap

12 12 2007

Last night, I was able to make it to Gen Arts’s Shop by Design and it was a fucking blast! Not only did I get to buy something for the No. 1 Person on my Xmas list- Me, but there was great food and free drinks. I was also able to get a makeover from the makeup line No.7 from Boots. And I have to admit, I looked fly. There was swag, so you know I was a happy gal since I’m a swag whore. I may just have to invest in a Gen Art Membership, so I can go to all their events.

Where I spent most of my night- By the boozes.

I love me some Johnnie Walker.

Singleringen- I love it. (Citizen Crave)

11 12 2007

6liten.jpg

Single and proud of it? Do you love your life just the way it is? Well there is no better way to shout your status to the world by wearing the fashionable Singleringen. In the world or singleton, this item is popular worldwide. People are snatching it up quickly so that they too can show people that they are single and happy. Created by Johan Wahlbäck, The Singelringen (“Single Ring” in Swedish) is a unisex ring with turquoise acrylic layer shining over a sterling silver band that has unique registration number. This number allows you to join an international social networking place on the Internet for everyone that has bought a Singelringen. So just by having this ring you may be able to find that special someone. The best then about this ring is that it will only run you  $59. It’s a lot cheaper then an engagement ring that’s for sure. It’s well worth the price to tell that world that just because you are single, you’re not fabulous. This would make a good Christmas gift for that single person in your life who is happy just the way they are. I had a ring myself, but I lost it. I just hope this doesn’t mean that I will forever be single. I better run out and get me a new one just in case to be on the safe side.

Repeal Day-Celebrate Your right To Drink

5 12 2007

d00tch54if.jpg

If you don’t know what today is then you need to be slapped. It’s the most important day in a drinker’s life- Repeal Day. What is Repeal day you ask? It’s the Repeal of Prohibition. Those day of gangsters bootleg booze, and loose women are long gone. (Whom am I kidding; there will always be loose women). Thanks in part to that bill; you can now drink without the po po busting up the joint. So in honor of this act, Dewars has created a national Holiday and is sponsoring parties throughout the L.A area with free or cheap drink specials. So let down that hair, lose your inhibitions and party against prohibition. After all it’s your duty to do so, people died for this right. Ok, they didn’t die, but I’m sure a few went to jail for a bit.

Bars participating In Repeal Day:

3 of Clubs

The Dresden Room,

The Derby,

R Bar,

Safari Sam’s,

Spaceland,

Ye Rustic Inn,

The Golden Gopher

Saints and Sinner

Today- 9pm-2am

For all the single people, mingle with several prestigious authors who know all too way about what it’s like to be single and love it. Bella DePaulo, Nina Foxx, Jane Ganahl, and T. Murray will be attending and signings books. A limited number of fabulous door prizes will be available on a first-come, first-served basis
