Palm Springs Modernism Week 2017

Disclosure: I received complimentary admission to Modernism Week events. All opinions are my own. I love seeking out new adventures but there are some places that I long to return to over and over again like San Francisco, Disneyland and Palm Springs. With it’s (usually) sunny weather and iconic mid-century architecture Palm Springs is my […]

Experiencing the all-new Chrysler Pacifica

What’s a gal to do when she’s invited to breakfast with Chrysler on the day she has jury duty? That happened to me recently and I was super bummed I couldn’t make it. Luckily, my pal Mary from Along Comes Mary was able to cover for me and share all the details. Take it away, […]

Attending Now Hear This and EW PopFest

Recently, I had a whirlwind weekend attending two local festivals (thanks to media passes) – Now Heart This in Anaheim and EW PopFest in LA. I had a fantastic time and couldn’t wait to write all about my adventure. Then I got sick. I was out of commission for almost two weeks (I even missed […]

This Weekend – EW PopFest and Now Hear This

I may frequently write about classic Hollywood but that doesn’t mean I’m stuck entirely in the past. I watch TV, go the movies and listen to podcasts like the best of them. So when I heard about two pop culture fests heading to the area I knew I had to go and this weekend I”m […]

Attending the Lone Pine Film Festival

If there’s one thing I’ve learned after attending three consecutive TCM Film Fests is the fact that I do enjoy a good film festival! To spend the weekend with like-minded folks and indulge in film appreciation is my idea of fun. Since the TCM one only happens once a year I did a little research […]

Attending Wine & Fire in Lompoc

One of my absolute favorite spots in California is the Santa Ynez Valley. With rolling hills, fields of agriculture and quaint towns it’s the perfect place to spend the weekend. Nestled in the adjoining Santa Rita Hills is the town of Lompoc. Even thought it’s a mere 20 minute drive to Solvang, Los Alamos and […]

Having Fun at Last Remaining Seats

Oh how I love Last Remaining Seats. Combining my love of classic film and the city of Los Angeles it’s a festival just made for me. When I was around 15 years old I came across an article about it in Sunset Magazine and wished I could attend but circumstances (namely not being old enough […]

Last Remaining Seats 2016 Schedule

Tonight we turn the clocks forward which means the days are getting longer and summer will soon be here. You know what that mean? It’s Last Remaining Seats time! This annual film festival highlighting the historic theatres of Los Angeles is one of my favorite events of the year and is a huge reason I […]

Food, Film and Fun in June

Well, it’s the last day of June. They say time flies when you’re having fun and it must be true because I had a blast this month. I’ve written about some of the things I did but not everything made it to a blog post. To remedy that I’m going to go ahead and tell […]

Attending the 2015 TCM Classic Film Festival

Last year I attended my first TCM Classic Film Festival and it was a dream come true. Imagine my delight this year when I was invited back as a member of the media. TCM is the only television channel I have a real interest in and the annual festival is a wonderful celebration of the […]
