Last day to hang out at Katy Perry's "Witness" Pop-Up shop!

The Kim Sing Theater in Downtown LA will be open until 8pm for a Katy Perry Pop-Up Shop

I like Katy Perry. I think she's cute and she certainly has a great voice. I was also proud of her for standing by Hillary Clinton during the presidential campaign. But all politics aside, I think she's a talented All-American superstar. And although I would probably never actually purchase tickets for one of her shows (I get my Katy Perry fix on KISS FM), I would certainly return to the Kim Sing Theater with some fun outfits for a super cool summer photo sesh. 
The Kim Sing Theater located at 718 N. Figueroa St. in Downtown Los Angeles is totally decked out to match Perry's eclectic and colorful style. 

Earlier this week, Perry hosted a Facebook Live stream that ran continuously for 96 hours as a way to promote her new album "Witness" at the Kim Sing Theater. There were cameras recording her every move and a gazillion fans logged in to watch her. Once she left, they left the facility intact and opened it to the public for fans to check it out.
Today will be the last day Katy Perry fans can head out to check out the pink vanity set where she would apply her make-up. They can hang out on the hot pink swing she used to relax in, or the all-white room where she rested. Heck, you can even take a photo of the bedroom that was built for her (the mattress she used is still there) and then you can spend a little more time (and money) at the merchandise shop.

No Apology for Enjoying Breadologie!

 A new bakery in town is making me break my diet...But I'm ok with that #sorrynotsorry

Ok. So I've been absent from my blog for quite some time now. I've been working on a bigger project that focuses on highlighting other LA moms and not so much my own life and lifestyle (more details if you keep reading). This, while still working full-time and managing a house full of boys!
Anyhow, last year, when Toby was practically still a newborn, we were driving around our neighborhood and came across a bright yellow sign that read: "Breadologie Bakery".

My husband pulled into the parking lot and stopped by the shop to see what the bakery was all about (I was curious too). He came out moments later and said he'd told the owners that I would be interested in writing about this new bakery once it opened to the public...Mind you, he usually stays out of anything blog-related so it was hilarious that he would go and pitch my blog (probably felt embarrassed to walk in during construction)!

Well, as it turns out, one year later, I --did-- stop by Breadologie, met Steffi Gutierrez who owns the bakery with her husband Charles and fell in love with their croissants and artisan bread.
They have such an exquisite selection pastries and such a cool vibe that it almost makes me want to pick up my daily morning coffee and sweet bread there... except, they've been so busy with their wholesale orders, the storefront is not open everyday. Still, it's worth a visit. They have cookies & cream croissants, raspberry almond brioche donuts and even introduced a brand new Rocky Road croissant...OMG...So good!

Now to my project... I just launched -- an online magazine for local moms focusing mainly on local moms.
I haven't officially announced my new editorial venture but I'm sharing it here because my last "WOWMOM" profile story is all about Breadologie co-owner Steffi Gutierrez.
Check it out!

In the meantime, make it a point to stop by the bakery if you're ever in the San Fernando Valley.
Here in LA, we're always waiting for the next delicious thing to awaken our senses (and a cup of coffee) and this place is perfect for that...
