Las Vegas was an absolute blast. There was not enough time in the day for us to do everything we wanted to. It was difficult going through the hundreds of photos I took and figuring out which ones I wanted to share on the blog. The first is yet another addition to my ever growing collection of “me wearing hats” photos. Since I refuse to succumb to my strange affection for fur and actually buy it, I always gush over fur hats when I spot one. What can I say? I absolutely won’t buy it but I love playing in it. It is sick, I know.

The second photo was from a restaurant we passed in Caesar’s Palace. Wow, right? Lastly, I must discuss the greatness of Hoover Dam. This image was found in the women’s restroom and I couldn’t stop taking photos of it. So much of Hoover damn appears to have Occult influences and you haven’t visited I suggest you do. Art deco astrology signs, planets, and figures line the damn and it was truly a sight to see. There was even a tape playing over a load speaker that said the designer constructed his designs to impress “future civilizations”, er, rt Deco X Barneys New York X Caesar’s Palace X Hoover Damaliens.

P.S. I am wearing lipstick in the above photo. I sat at the Las Vegas Barneys counter one night and just had at it. More on the color and product to come. I love it.

This weekend it was finally hot enough to go to the beach so we packed our sunscreen and sarape and headed out.   It was a great way to escape the smoke that was filling the SGV and truthfully, watching the flames has made me very uneasy.  I hope all of you are safe!

The water at Manhattan Beach was perfect and we laid out in the sand until 6pm.  It was one of the best days we’ve had all summer.  We also had some of the best fish tacos and ceviche over at Tacos Baja Ensenada in East L.A. and I cannot believe that place has escaped me my whole life.

P.S. I miss the music of the early-90s.  Listened to The Wackness soundtrack tonight and sighed.
