My Love Letter to Star Wars (Yes, Star Wars)

So, the new Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker  teaser just came out and……. It looks amazing!!!!!! If you have not seen it please stop what you’re doing and watch here! I don’t want to spoil too much but there are plenty of familiar faces and “voices”, some good and some not so good. 

I love how the teaser states that “Every Generation Has a Hero” because it’s true! My father grew up watching the original Star Wars in the 1970’s and 1980’s, both my brother and I grew up watching the prequels in the 2000’s, and now we are all able to watch the saga come to a close together.

Even the fact that the protagonist in the newest trilogy is a woman is awesome. When Force Awakens came out I was about twenty years old, and by the time that The Rise of Skywalker Comes out, I will be twenty-five. I feel I can relate to Rey and the spiritual, mental, and physical journey she is going through. I already know so much more than I did a few years back, much like Rey.  

I have been a huge Star Wars fan my entire life. Don’t believe me? I’ll show you my Darth Vader Tattoo to prove it. I mean besides those prequels (we don’t like to talk about those), every aspect of Star Wars brings me joy. I love the all of the interesting characters we have seen through the years, the flawless story line that has spanned over decades, and incredible attention to detail in all of the Star Wars movies. 

When A New Hope first came out in 1977 it was a mega hit, and for good reasons! A movie that combined action, humor, and sci-fiction had been unheard of at the time, but it changed pop culture forever. 

Now we’re in the year 2019 and the story is coming to an end, but we all know this will never be the end of Star Wars. I’m so glad to have experienced Star Wars in my lifetime, it has taught me so much about family, friends, and even enemies. I’m so glad to see J.J. Abrams will be returning to direct the final film, he is certainly the right person to close the chapter on the enchanting story of Star Wars. 

Sunday Brunch at Soho House

This Sunday I had brunch at Soho House West Hollywood! Now Soho House might not necessarily be a familiar name to the masses, but it is one of the most exclusive members only clubs in Hollywood. 

In order to even get inside you must either be a member or know a member. Luckily I do!  So I was able to attend one of their regular Sunday brunches. The food was delicious of course, and the live music set the perfect ambiance for a wonderful Sunday afternoon. We were enjoying ourselves so much that we stayed through dinner! Every time I come to Soho House I have to get the guacamole. I’m not sure what kind of magical avocados they make theirs with but it is bomb!

As we were leaving they began to set up for Drag Bingo, one of the many exciting events on the Soho House schedule. I’m hoping to get a front row seat to the Game of Thrones viewing next Sunday. While we were there, we even got to take a peek at their new Mexican inspired restaurant, Maya!

Besides the amazing food, the coolest thing about going to Soho House is seeing the celebrities just being themselves and being comfortable among like-minded individuals. Soho House members tend to be on the innovative and creative side, so there’s never an uptight vibe. Most places celebrities go to they will be hounded with fans or paparazzi asking to take photos, but photos are strictly prohibited in all Soho House Clubs (so of course these are not my photos!)

Soho house is a hidden gem that has been around for ages and not just in West Hollywood! There are locations in Malibu, London, New York, Toronto, and even soon Hong Kong! Now obviously I can’t give much detail about who I have seen there or where it is specifically located, but what I can tell you is that Soho House is the place to be! 

Fashion Files: Coachella Edition

To those who are unfamiliar, Coachella is a music festival that has been around for nearly twenty years! The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival  (better known now as just “Coachella”) started off as a three day concert for indie bands and artists, but has grown to be a yearly pop culture frenzy. Sadly I have not gotten a chance to attend Coachella. My dear brother and I were supposed to go last year. He bailed and I MISSED BEYCHELLA, something I will be sure to remind him of until the end of time… 

Though I have not gotten a chance to be a part of the experience, I always enjoy looking at the fashion. It is held in Indio, CA – aka the hot a** desert, so I feel that it’s essential to wear something light, comfortable, and most importantly stylish! 

Here are a few of my favorite outfits from the past few years!
