Going Back to Cali...


I stayed up late to watch the Emmy’s last night - I’m a sucker for award shows.  I love the dresses, the cheesy interviews on the red carpet and those often ridiculous opening dance routines. Watching the show (or at least the opening segment) made me a bit nostalgic for my LA days which now seem like such a distant memory…

Say what you will about LA (the smog, the botox, the In & Out burgers) but boy oh boy did I have fun when I lived on the West Coast. I still tear up every time I hear “Going Back to Cali’ by Notorious B.I.G (I joke, I joke).  Anyway those days are now over and the fact that I actually stayed up past midnight to finish watching the show meant that I dragged myself through the day, barely able to keep my eyes open, surviving only on caffeine.  I'm calling it an early night - off to bed, california dreaming...

When my boy was in AMerica I seem to recall him saying the "in and outburger" was the shiz!! I like looking at the pretty dresses for these things - one day I'll have a reason to wear a ball gown... may be.

SNAP! I'm a total sucker for the dresses and the cheesiness of it all! B wasn't so impressed as I insisted on watching it in bed, but it was a must! xx
