Improv With My Dog

I have some pretty heavy posts concerning grief heading your way so I thought I'd break you in slowly by taking a hard left turn and instead sharing the most ridiculous thing I've done in a very long time: improv with one of my dogs.  (Mind you, I do perform with puppets very regularly so this was ridiculous even for me).
Tough the Bear is a VERY fun indie show that has several shows a month at LA Connection Comedy Theater in Burbank and each show has a different hook: improv, sketch, characters, bits. Etc. What's a bit? Well, that's something that is largely debated in regards to what a stage bit is.  But my definition is doing an inside joke that the audience in on (probably something extra silly or not grounded) but playing it straight as if you're serious.
I got asked by one of the show runners to plan a bit and ultimately that led to me emailing him, "Hey, on a scale of "THIS IS THE BEST IDEA EVER!" to "what are you thinking you crazy pers…

OMG! Outfit Post!

Look what the cat dragged in! I've always insisted that I haven't quit blogging, and while I still believe that I'd more than understand if you doubted me.  As you know, my life has had a series of changes that have changed my schedule and my wardrobe slightly.  Recently I got some fun pics with my friend, Elizabeth McIrvin, a talented photographer and comedian, so I decided to throw them up on the blog.
I intend to start blogging more.  I make no promises as to how quickly it'll snowball into regular blogging nor about how many outfit posts will make the blog regularly (I want to start blogging a bit more about my comedy life and I have a bunch of posts on deck about grief and misunderstandings about it, inspired by the loss of my mom this summer).  But I promise I haven't forgotten blog land!
Without further ado, here's some photos from a fun day out and about with my friend Liz!

Fun facts! The dress is from Folter, which I believe is now defunct? I've been …

Pinup Squirrels: Friend Zone Video

Hey!  I'm so proud to be sharing with you guys the first sketch video I've been apart of since moving to LA.  I've been here for almost a year and it's been a shock that it's taken this long to have a video come out!  There's a bunch of things I've written but for various reasons production has been delayed.  And I've been asked to be apart of some people's videos as well, but various things foil those plans, like groups disbanding and schedules changes, etc.  Life!  Am I right??
Luckily one of my troupes, Pinup Squirrels, is revving up on our video production and here is our first one!  Written by our founder, Kristen Lucas, it's a sketch about a silly app making fun of how big Los Angeles is and how it's a thing that many people don't want to travel to see their friends in different parts of the city.
There is a fashion component to this video for me!  Styling myself was a little tricky.  I'd say roughly 85% of my wardrobe is "l…

Very Hot Summer Day Outfit

Guys!  It's in the 90s most days, which I love.  But what I DON'T love is not having air conditioning in my car.  And you may have heard, Los Angeles is a bit of a driving city!  So I've been utilizing my collection of Retrolicious outfits as for many years that brand has basically been my summer uniform.  
This amazing Jungle print skirt from ModCloth (by Retrolicious) is so amazing as it's versatile due to it's pastel print with navy background.  I adore mixing prints with this number (as seen here) but I decided to go for "less is more" (what is that??) with this grey Tatyana blouse.  My trusty nude, beige, and grey color block Nine West sandals (similar) came in handy to help the outfit pop while keeping it simple. Rounding it out I used my yellow wicker basket purse from Pinup Girl Clothing to make the yellow in the skirt pop more.  This yellow purse is sincerely the most practical purchase I've ever made while purse shopping.  It looks tiny and…

August Housekeeping & Announcements

Hello, gorgeous people!  I'm finally getting back into the swing of blogging again and have some fun posts coming your way, ranging from outfits, shopping tips, posts on grief, my life in the comedy world, and even a giveaway!  But before officially launching back into blog life I wanted to do some housekeeping.
Me at the last practice we had, with two of my four puppets, Raquel and Veruca.
I am a comedian with plenty of pots on the stove.  If you live in the LA area and want to see PUPPET IMPROV, please come check out my shows.  I'm in a talented comedy troupe of actors, comedians, improv artists, and writers...and all of us happen to be puppeteers as well!  Our troupe is called Puppets Amok (please follow us on Instagram if you have Instagram).  We have at least two shows in August:
1. We have a show at the Clubhouse on Friday August 10th at 11PM.  Improv show!  Free!
2. We are apart of the Los Angeles Indie Improv Festival, which is happening in two weekends.  We will take the …

Comedy and Tragedy

It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times.  I generally hate cliche quotes that can easily be slapped on memes or on the coffee mug of a basic b!tch, but I'm hard pressed to find a better phrase to describe my life currently.  In short: I've been having the most fun that I've ever had in the eight months since I moved to LA, but then the emergency breaks got slammed on my life when my mother fell gravely ill and passed away two weeks later on June 6th.  
I'm currently back in LA, after being gone for three weeks.  I'm looking forward to continuing my comedy journey, as I feel it will save me from myself at this time.  But while I'm functioning okay as I'm still in a great deal of shock and my current mode is auto pilot, certain hours of the day prove to me that I'm very jumbled up and confused about my mom's passing.  I suddenly don't know what I'm in for and I don't know what I'm doing.
Not knowing what I'm doing …
