i tried to add a music player to my blog today, but it didn't really work out. i will try again another time. i was semi successful, but the music didn't seem to stream well and was stuttering... hmmmm... i guess that may be my connection... anyways. this is the song i was trying to add. listen if you have the time. i love ani.

my favorite line from that song is...
"i got a face like a limp handshake, hair like an accident scene, and i've been waking up slowly savoring the same old dream and somewhere between the folds of your memory i was sleeping soundly..."

didn't start off the day great, but it is looking better and another cup of coffee, a walk and an afternoon iced chai should help....

loved this lady... she is carrying corn, but in my mind it is a lotus flower... you gotta love all the art in l.a.
i have some amazing photos from last weekends chalk art walk in pasadena soon to come...

top photos taken outside of casbah (my favorite cafe) and down the street.

two new rings... yes, i got the f21 sideways cross.... i know everyone and their mama has it.. .but i still like it. the real find was the sterling silver moss opalite ring that i got on ebay for $9!

sweet potatoes about to be cooked...
i know some of you are probably thinking... what kind of sweet potatoes are those??? but i don't know exactly. i call them filipino sweet potatoes. which i know is entirely silly

"OMG!", Truly "love, love, love ...!!!" :)

And, Sabella, LA may have quite the extensive & impressive array...; however, in my humble opinion, you're arguably its' "magnum opus," babe - - - a "truly *divine* work of living art!!!" :) <333

Sabella, thanks so much for such amazingly lovely & beautiful posts which you so generously share on your remarkable blog! :)

Really, you seem to have quite "the gift" of not only choosing captivating nature & naturally beautiful scenery backgrounds; yet, you ever come off lookin' "so wondrously lovely & beautiful (so 'damn hott!')" yourself, babe! :)

Jus' recently heard song lyrics (Macy Gray's, latest hit), which immediately evoked thoughts of you, Sweetheart! I'll bet other fortunate followers of your blog here can also, relate. So "bigtime thanks!" for your ongoing sharing of such "bedazzling beauty!!!" :) <333


Stop and smell the flowers
And lose it the sweet music and dance with me
There is beauty in the world
So much beauty in the world
Always beauty in the world
There is beauty in the world
Shake your booty boys and girls for the beauty in the world
Pick your diamond pick your pearl there is beauty in the world
All together now

When I look around I see blue skies
I see butterflies for us
Listen to the sound and lose it
Its sweet music and dance with me
There is beauty in the world
So much beauty in the world
Always beauty in the world
So much beauty in the world

Heya throw your hands up and holla
Throw your hands up and holla
When you don't know what to do
Don't know if you'll make it through
Remember god is giving you beauty in the world
So love (Beauty in the world)
Yeah love (Beauty in the world) ... :)

Namaste,
XoXo

i, too, am a fan of iced chai. any chai, really. this whole outfit is fantastic, but i really like thoseb boots on you...i hope your week gets better!

Indeed, what kind of sweet potatoes are those? I know I'd eat a lot more of them if I could get this vibrant colour.

Love the opalite ring, gorgeous colour and shape!

Leslee said...

Ohh those are like purple yams right. I had the ice cream a while back in a philipine restaurant, ahh delish.

Love these shots, you look super tall. Lovely rings.

awww.... hell yeah! i love me some ani. i saw her in concert about 15 (omg?!!!) years ago and she rocked it so hard. i would love to see her again, but my claustrophobia prevents me from having such fun. )=;

and!!! i love casbah cafe. i used to live right up the street and would go there everyday. what fond memories.

and another hell yeah to hanging out. so crazy, i weeded many friends (so called?) out of my life a few years ago and now i really only have 1 in l.a. other than my husband and i never see her. it gets a bit lonely and my hermit tendencies don't help. i really feel that we need to make this happen. i am horrible with committing but once i do, i usually don't flake. so we will make a plan. i will e-mail you, or you e-mail me and we shall work something out. i feel like we need to have a vent session as well. release and let go!

you are looking gorgeous in red, and i love the boots!!!
