  • Hello!

    It’s been a really nice weekend. Did some hiking, shopping, and concert going.

    On Friday and Saturday nights getting down Sunset Blvd can be pretty challenging. Here I am maneuvering myself in all the traffic.

    Oh Great, gotta change lanes. So much distracting stuff up and down the street!

    Sunset Blvd

    Act a bit aggressive to get yourself in there, then once your fully back in front of the vehicle that let you in, you give them the good ol’ prairie salute! (They don’t even notice)

    wave on sunset blvd

    Here was our destination. The Rainbow Bar and Grill (where I used to work) and The Roxy…

    The rainbow and the roxy, Sunset Blvd

    Here’s inside the Rainbow. Super famous spot where EVERY up and coming and famous musicians in LA hang out (or have hung out at in one point in time) People I saw there when I worked there: Pink, Keanu Reeves, The Osbornes, Drew Carrey, David Spade, Carmen Electra, Dave Nevaro, Vince Neil, Slash…just to name a few.

    The Rainbow Bar and Grill

    Here is Mike, the manager who hired me back in the day. He didn’t even ask for my resume, he just said, “Show up on Monday”. haha It was great to see him.

    Mike was cracking up at the guy behind me. He was flinging his hair around…a lot! He was in a band from Rio Brazil..

    Nice enough guy, but he REALLY loved his luscious locks. (Oh and by the way I am drinking a margarita made by my buddy Jesus- pronounced “HEY-ZEUS!” lol. This margarita tasted just like I remembered them. 80% of the glass filled with tequila, a shot of Triple Sec and a splash of lime. Phewf! You only need 1!!!

    After some visiting, we went over to The Roxy. Saw some AMAZING bands..

    Best band of the night was called The Shakers. Female fronted band.

    She was sooo freaking cool. She made me want to be in a rock band again. I LOVED it.

    Today was more errands, running around- not much work done though. I guess that’s what Monday’s are for…Ready to have a ROCKING week. Hope you are too. Let’s take it to the next level:)

    And the most beautiful treasure of all…Painter and his findings..

    Here was LA at 6am this morning. We got up early and were ready to start the day..

    good morning LA

    Night my friends!! bed time…xoxo

  • Hey!

    Ok…What is inspiring you NOW. I mean like RIGHT NOW. Don’t over think it. Just spit it out.

    Here are 5 things that are inspiring me NOW off the top of my head:

    1. California weather (it’s been crazy nice, like lay on the beach nice-in January!)

    Here’s an iphone shot I took the other night.

    2. People with STYLE! (I must look like a stalker, but at the dog park, I stare at some of the girls around me that have such funky style…oh and I’m in my running shorts!) They inspire me to think outside the box a bit. Working from home, I can get complacent with my “style” or what I put on everyday. I want to put more effort into it.

    This collage of last years Coachella goers which pretty much sums up LA style. It’s very hip, funky, chill, relaxed, somewhat vintage. (My target running shorts just don’t compare!!! haha)

     

    3. Raw healthy eating.

    I have been pretty darn good these days with sticking to raw, but still far from a 100% raw diet. But- I try to I incorporate as many fruits and veggies into my life as possible and make an effort to stay away from fat and Dairy! (Meat isn’t even an issue, I am SO over it!)
    I LOVE This video on how food resembles our body parts…

     

    4. My work. (ahh, what else is new?) When I have time-I listen to other voice actors demo’s and I just love it, there is soo much amazing talent out there. When I’m in the car-I turn up the commercials. When I am in voiceover classes- I am a learning sponge.(I don’t always hear the things I want- they do NOT sugar coat anything, but I know it is making me stronger)

    Here is a screen shot of my voices.com feedback page. Besides 1 other voice talent, I have the most amount of 5 star ratings for female voice talent on the whole site!! 118 5-star reviews baby!

    5. My wedding photos! They were taken by Matt and Janna Photography in Saskatoon. I’m just really inspired at how they captured it all. I don’t want to bombard you with kissing photos, haha, but I love LOVE,  I love my husband and I am so thrilled with our pictures and just getting to relive the day through photographs.

     

    My ruby red slippers in action. “There’s no place like home!”.

    I heart him.

    OK. Well, artsy fartsy me has spoken. This is me..tonight…5 things that are inspiring me NOW. What is inspiring you? It can seriously be ANYTHING. That’s the beauty of life. Life is what we make it, we can see it however we want…

    Maybe your pillow is inspiring you? hee hee… night night.

  • Hello!

     

    Who used to watch Married with Children? I did! haha

     

    Love their sofa!

    Couldn’t help but post a few more wedding pics. The photogs that shot our wedding say our album is DONE and I CAN”T wait to see it. I will post pics as soon as I have them, but for now you get my Rebel shots.

    Me with 2 future Bride-to- be’s!! Diana is engaged to Sean! And my mom…well her and Richard sure make a nice couple! lol

    Me with my sweet, loving, adorable Sisters In Law. They look gorgeous, I love their dresses, shoes, shrugs, red lips! Love it all.

    Saskatoon Inn Wedding, Winter

    I freaking LOVE my wedding shoes and I’m so happy I found them. Garter… mom bought it, so I had to wear it.. haha, love you mom! It was a fun accent.

    Moments before I walked down the isle. Marianne was trying to keep us separate.

    Amazing moment. My brothers walked me down the isle, arm in arm.

    My mom and her precious grandson!

    Enough wedding talk! Let’s talk about Jasper. Little guy turned 1 last week. Here is my bro and him at his 1st birthday party. Sooo exciting. I wish I could have been there.

    Lil angel.

    Precious.

    In other news here, It was a good day. I love waking up, checking my phone and having work. Being a voiceover artist is like being unemployed every day, until you get hired for something. Then your back to being unemployed, until the next job.. Mind you, I usually am not “unemployed” for too long, but I still gotta keep rocking those auditions, have a quick turn around for my clients and stay on top of the game.

    I eat my greens during the week to keep my immune system in top shape (on the weekends it’s Mexican, lol)

    Here we have some pea shoots I got from the Farmers Market, I added them to my green smoothie this morning.

    I don’t have my fancy citrus juicer with me, it’s back in Vancouver, but this plastic juicer has been amazing.

    Bought Painter a new toy this weekend. Man, he LOVES it! He brings it up behind me and drops it beside me, trying to get me to play with him.


    I took my booty out for a jog today today. We live in a neighbourhood with some BIG hills, so I had fun cursing as I ploughed my way up!

    Promise I will either do yoga or go for another jog tomorrow! How’s your fitness routine going? Mom went to Zumba today! Go mom.

     

    Have a great night everyone!

  • Hello!

    Happy Friday! Happy life! Happy everyday!

    The last couple days I have been confined to my little make-shift studio, as well as taking some extremely beneficial and inspiring classes.

    I’ve been working on the usual, phone systems, e-learning, narrations, etc….

    Then…. I got inspired to write a podcast for voices.com’s weekly podcast called, “Voice Over Experts”. I’m not sure if I am considered an “expert” yet, lol….but I have a good idea and I want to write and record a podcast for “The industry’s most downloaded podcast”. See, on the left there I started my lil bullet points…. I’ll let you know if it all works out.

    Another thing I am working on is memorizing this script for a hosting gig I am doing for a friend who is starting up a business. We are shooting tomorrow, so I need some beauty sleep tonight!!!!

    I also need to wash my makeup brushes! I haven’t washed them since before the wedding.

    Well, they came in handy…

    So ya, I need to wash them brushes!

    The place we’re staying at is flooded with cool artwork, quotes and trinkets. The lady who owns this place is definitely a creative woman!

    Sometimes I just don’t feeeeeeel creative, so I came up with a new game to keep me on my toes. Say you are walking down the street, at an event, or wherever you and your camera may take you, Out of no where -you are going to STOP. WHen it comes to you, just STOP….then look around you and make yourself take a picture of SOMETHING, ANYTHING….

    I started my game today and here is my first picture while playing my new game…. I STOPPED AND I spotted with my little eye- an aloe vera plant. I told Mike (if he ever remembers) to tell me to stop out of the blue and then I have to find something to shoot. Fun or fun? I say fun.

    There was no game involved in this shot. These peeps are already waiting for next Christmas? Only in LA… lol

    Ahhh yes, our daily trip to the park.. Painter’s Disneyland! He met some cool new friends today.

    Then he resorted to get incredibly sandy and we had to hose him down before heading home.

    Any big plans for the weekend? Whatever you decide to partake in.. I hope you have a wonderful time!

    We’ll be in touch….xoxo
