3 MUST HAVES FOR BRUNCH

3 Must Haves For Brunch

Where should I do brunch? I didn't know I would become one of those people. You know the annoying one that people make memes about. Since "bitches love brunch." Apparently, we do. We really do. To not fall completely into the stereotype. I only have brunch once a month with friends. One of my favorite places to have it is TART Restaurant in Los Angeles. But there's a lot of fantastic brunch spots in SoCal.

I love a good brunch. It usually leaves me buzzed the whole day. Though it doesn't seem like an event that people can mess up. They still manage to fail when it comes to planning a good brunch with friends. I've compiled a simple list if followed will yield beautiful brunch results.

When picking a brunch spot you want to find one that has a great ambiance. Here in Los Angeles where the weather is great. It’s always a nice touch to have a brunch where you can sit outside or have a killer view. It makes the brunch lively and makes for fantastic photo opportunities. Because do you even brunch if you don’t put it on the gram? Put into consideration where everyone is coming from. Everyone needs to take a lyft or uber when partaking in true brunch fashion (drinking).

Good Company

Now it’s time to pick your brunch gang. In keeping the stress levels down. When it comes to splitting the check, I always keep the group to 4-6 people. Any more and it can become a hassle to find a table to fit people at a popular place. You also want to make sure you pick fun people to enjoy this brunch with. Good stories, laughter, and fun are a must! So try to avoid that friend that complains when her water slices aren't cut to precision.

Bottomless Drinks

This is my number one! Not all restaurants have realized that bottomless drinks are a must. You don’t even have to do them all day! A lot of restaurants put a time limit of 1-3 hours for the bottomless drinks. Now, when picking your place you might have to try a few places until you find your “Home” brunch spot. I love TART because I’ve been a few times now. Each time I’ve gotten a wonderful waitress that has HOOKED IT UP. Always topping off the mimosas and giving more. That is what you want! If you’re paying $25 for bottomless, you want that champagne and OJ flowing.

Those are my tips on creating a fun Brunch experience with friends. This will help you build a tradition that keeps you connected and making memories.

F#CK NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS

Fuck New Years Resolutions

To start off this year, I decided to forgo any lie to myself that I would complete some absurd New Year's Resolution. In fact, I just didn't even try. If you remember last year, I wrote: "New Year's Resolution's That Don't Suck." I must say I was successful in completing most of those. Though, I set the bar pretty low. Haha

I'm a firm believer that if you want to change something, you should do it in that instant. Example if you decide you're going to start working out. Then go run, that day. Don't leave it for "Monday," or in this case "New Year, New Me."

Still, in having fun with the idea of New Year's Resolutions. I did a video explaining the top three resolutions you should have for yourself. Flipping the switch on the usual.

1. Fluctuating Weight - Accept the fact that sometimes you might be a few extra pounds than you'd like to. That's okay, embrace that sh!t.

2. Accept your Singla AF status - You might find the love of your life or you might be single all year. That's okay, just have fun and put yourself out there. Don't place so much pressure on yourself.

3. Make tiny changes - The smaller, the more attainable the goal. Once you can get these little changes down. It will be easier to tackle the big goals. 

That's pretty much it! See? Those resolutions look easy and they ARE easy. I still won't do them, but maybe you will. hahaha

To get a more in-depth look at these resolutions check out my latest YouTube video, "New Year's Resolution Fail!"

Scared of Santa

As a child, I loved the holidays. It was always full of wonder and fun. Christmas growing up was in Denver Colorado. Which meant a white Christmas with snow. I remember when I had my first Christmas in Los Angeles. It was a surreal experience. It didn't feel like the Christmas' that I was accustomed to. I missed the smell of Christmas. The smell of fresh snow. It's a distinctive smell that wraps you up in the holidays.

Regardless, no matter where I celebrated Christmas. One thing ran true, my fear of Santa. It was a love/hate relationship. I loved that he brought me presents. I hated that he had to break into my house to do so. I was a weird child, I don't know why I was so scared of him. Maybe because he was a stranger.  That's the reason I couldn't sleep on Christmas Eve. Not just because of the presents. But also because Santa, the jolly terrifying man, was coming. I  didn't want any conversations or Christmas adventures. Just leave the presents and go, Santa.

My latest video shares my fear of Santa in hilarious detail. Make sure to check it out below:

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Secrets Girls Do On Dates

Secrets girls do on dates

There's excitement when it comes to dating someone new. You build them up in your head and they either surpass expectations or fall flat. When it comes to sex, women have the decision-making power. I find nothing wrong if you're a lady that likes to be a freak in the sheets on the first date or wait it out for awhile. Either way, the temptation is real AF sometimes. Especially when trying to hold out on sex for a few more dates. 

If you're, a guy, wondering, "will you get laid?" Here are some secrets girls do, on dates, to hold out a little longer.

1. DON'T SHAVE OUR BODY - Yep that's right, we become furry animals. Especially when we're not ready to invite you to pantyland. The weather could be 90 degrees. We might show up to the date in long sleeves, skinny jeans, and knee-high boots. All to cover up the chastity belt of protective body hair.

2. BODY CONSCIOUS DRESSES - Wearing a dress that hugs the body. Under that tight dress, is the second layer of skin called Spanx. This constrains rolls, bulges and that cake we ate before the date. If you thought it was hard to unsnap a bra. Don't even get started on this, you'll lose the battle. 

3. PROFESSIONAL GRADE MAKEUP - For me, I have many different makeup looks. One of them includes "don't touch my face." Means my eyebrows are on fleek and my lipstick is impenetrable. Chances are if she has a lot of makeup on. She doesn't feel like leaving an imprint it on your pillow. When I know sex might be going down, I wear lighter makeup.

Disclaimer - these secrets are to help us stay strong. They don't always work. Which can, of course, lead to funny stories and great sex. I'm just letting you know, if you encounter these situations, don't get your hopes up.

Check out my latest YouTube video, "Will I Get Laid?" - which breaks down these points in funny detail.
