Giants Sweep the Tigers

Image
Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants on sweeping the Detroit Tigers in the 2012 World Series!

I was bowling with my league during Game 4 that was taking place in Detroit. We finished our third game and some stayed to watch history being made. 'Gramps', I believe the owner or family member of the owner of the bowling alley came out with the broom in celebration.

In regards to a celebration, I can't say I'm proud of some Giants fans that took to the streets and vandalized, mugged and trashed the home of the Champions. Similar acts happened in 2010 and it's quite an embarrassment to the city. Where's the pride? What do you think the punishment should be for such unnecessary and destructive acts?

The parade happens tomorrow in Dan Francisco. I will not be in attendance but I'm sure great photos will be posted.

Again, congratulations to the Bay area and the San Francisco Giants!

Let Them Eat CUPCakes!

It was a SWEET weekend. On my way up to Cotati, California to see a friend to knock stuff off our “Explore Our Own Backyard Bucket List”, I stopped in Oakland, California and explored College Avenue a little more. I have had Katrina Rozelle Dessert & Pastries on my list of vendors for years now. I have yet to have them on my selected vendor list for an event. Perhaps someday soon. I believe I first came across them at one of the many Bridal Fairs where I network, do research and experience or taste vendors’ services first-hand. My cousin who is a corporate Event Planner has also recommended Katrina Rozelle. But it wasn’t until this weekend when I made myself walk an extra block with a bum foot just to get a taste. It’s a small shop with two display cases. I was able to try their Vanilla Almond Cake and their Pumpkin Cake. And for someone who’s not a big fan of pumpkin, that Pumpkin Cake was amazing. I searched through their cases and wanted to bring my friend in Cotati a taste …

Become a Stella & Dot Stylist!

Image
Jessica Herrin, CEO & Founder of Stella & Dot as seen in Inc. Magazine I just tuned into a Prospective Stylist Conference Call lead by the one and only, Jessica Herrin. Even as a Stylist of a year and a half, I am constantly finding out new information and feeling re-energized when I tune in. That is one of the great things about being a Stella & Dot Stylist: the constant availability of training and being lead by a leader that is present, approachable and motivating. I would like to be better at that for my team of 8 other Stylists. I joined in a bit late for the call, but Jessica went into the available specials, available training, and answered questions from current and potential Stylists all across the country.
