HAPPY NEW YEAR! It looks BUSY already!

I'm a bit late but I hope your first 5 days of the new year has been treating you very well. I had to return to my day job on Tuesday, January 3rd and surprisingly I was happy to do so. I enjoyed my week-long break to take care of the front yard, spend time with family, friends, and my dog. But now it's back to the grind.

I have a lot going on in 2012.

Next month, I have 4 Los Lonely Boys shows to go to.

Be sure to look for us, the La Onda Street Team, for some cool swag if you're going to any of the concerts in California.

I am getting married on April 19, 2012. I have less than 2 months before my fitting for my wedding dress. I am watching what I eat. DB drinks soda instead of beer now so it's caused me to drink a lot of soda. But I am back to drinking a lot more water. One-quarter of some Cran-Peach Juice and three-quarters water. It's not quite Propel but it works. I am on a good schedule at my gym and have left DailyBurn because they will start charging for their site after a trial. Even though I've been with them for years. I moved to MyFitnessPal.com (bappletree), thanks to Ashleeee22 on Twitter. The girls and I are going to search for Bridesmaid dresses and shoes this Saturday and my sis and I are hitting the gym prior to. Awesome!

Our wedding is going to be quite small with a BIG honeymoon in Europe in October. Then followed by a baby. Yes, this Planner has things planned. I am still looking for an Officiant but I hope to find one I like at the Wedding Faire this Sunday at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I will be attending this event with former client/bride of mine turned friend, Kristin V. The last time we went to a wedding fair together was also in Santa Clara BUT I didn't leave with a selected hair stylist or florist. Instead, I turned into a Stella & Dot Independent Stylist.

Stella & Dot
will be launching their new 2012 Spring Collection this weekend on January 8th and I cannot wait to place my sample order. I also cannot wait to hear my first hostess of the year and her guests say "oohhh" and "ahhhh" Come to this event at The Wild Vine Hideaway in Danville, CA on Wednesday, January 18th. Some of the new collection pieces will be available for you to touch, feel and try on! Please stop by!

Stella & Dot also has a great special now for new Stylists that sign up by January 31st. Usually, Stylists sign up for $199 and get $350 in free product, PLUS 50% off additional samples. Until the 31st, any Stylist that signs up gets $450 in free product instead. I wish I was able to get that when I signed up. I remember how small my display was...

It is now overflowing. I even need to buy an additional table. For anyone that is interested in starting their own business in fashion, I am having such a great time with it. I am available to meet with you to answer as many questions as I can.
My goal for 2012 with Stella & Dot is reach Star Stylist.
But I can't do it without you!

In addition to a day job, a personal life, concerts, commuting 100 miles a day, working as a Stella & Dot Stylist, a Mobile Notary Public, I will eventually ramp up my Event Planning & Coordinating business as well. I have been quite busy that all my Event Planning time has been going towards my own wedding. Come May 2012, I will be working on the Lagade Family Reunion and possibly other events as well. Quite possibly a destination wedding in New York City for 2013. Keep your fingers crossed for me and please LIKE my page at Facebook.

So, 2012 has in-store for me a wedding, my family reunion, increase Event Planning business, honeymoon, baby, reach Star Stylist goal and I am going to have Christmas at my house this year. Christmas for 2011 could've been better given that it was our first Christmas in our new home.

Just a fun thing to mention, I was listed as a Top Yelper! in this week's newsletter for the East Bay.

What's in-store for you for 2012?


  1. Sounds like you've got a busy but awesome 2012 lined up! How exciting that your wedding is coming up so soon!
