Sprinkles vs Sparkles: I am finally watching Doctor Who.

Saturday, April 27th, 2013



So I am finally taking the plunge and watching Doctor Who for the first time. I am leveling up my nerd status. I am still on the first episode. I must say, no one warned me that this was going to be terrifying. It’s amazing, but pretty terrifying. I can’t wait to see what the series has to offer.

This week has been pretty glorious and I am falling in love with these beautiful Spring days, more and more. I can’t believe we are wrapping up the month of April. 2013, where are you going?! With the end of the week comes the always fabulous, always random, Sprinkles vs Sparkles.


I feel like this informative video on crystals goes well with my post on gemstones.

♡ I love The Blerd Manifesto.

♡ How adorable are these dresses?

♡ These humanized Princess portraits sort of blew my mind.

♡ I want to make jewelry out of barbie doll heads and my friend told me about this amazing designer.

♡ I love these amazing date ideas.

♡ Such a precious recap of The Blogcademy in LA.

♡ How adorable are these pen cozies?

♡ You have to check out this completely unique and Trekkie wedding.

♡ How adorable is this embroidery?

♡ I don’t know who a lot of these guys are but I LOVED this list and I used to have that poster of Erik Von Detten.

♡ There are far to many reasons to list as to why I adore Uncool Aaron but this was added to the list.


♡ I am part of an amazing project called The-Reimagining. Every other month we all get together for a bi-monthly salon held by Ijeoma. I went to my first one a couple of weeks ago and it was a dream! ♡ I watched this video of Yeah Yeah Yeahs at this year’s Coachella about a million times. ♡ I went to one of the dopest burlesque shows i’ve been to in a long time.  ♡ I bought vintage Ninja Turtle toys from my childhood. ♡ I spent hours being super silly just so I don’t take myself that seriously. ♡ Networked with some brilliant event planners so I can start my own geek-glam event planning myself. ♡ Satan made an appearance on my Instagram. ♡ Had a cupcake/tea party with a close friend. ♡ Tried Moonshine for the first time while listening to the Beatles. ♡ I went to a carnival and ate all of the cotton candy. ♡ Sat in nature with a good friend and remembered how beautiful my surroundings are. ♡ I bought a new David Bowie shirt in which I am in love with. ♡ Ate swedish fish before yoga, like a boss. ♡ I bought and tried powdered peanut butter and loved it. ♡ Went to Shake Shack and didn’t order the entire menu.  ♡ Saw Evil Dead for a second time.

Well I am off to dream about the cupcake tour in which I am going on in Manhattan tomorrow. I am pretty sure it’s going to be as magical as I am imagining it is going to be.

Stay sexy Gotham!

Sprinkles vs Sparkles: Dream, dream, dream.

Friday, March 1st, 2013


It’s the end of the week and the beginning of a new month. March is among my favorite months for many reasons. Spring is in the air, it’s my birth month, people start coming out of their houses more, and everyone is ready to start fresh.

My March begins with me going to Seattle for a couple of days. Pretty excited to experience this wonderful city for the first time. I’m sure it’s going to be everything I want it to be.

So how was my week you may be wondering. It was full of harlem shaking and fantastic-ness. I am going to share my Sprinkles vs my Sparkles with you guys. My Sprinkles are always things that I loved within the week and the Sparkles are achievements I am especially proud of. Let’s rotate the circle shift and keep it going!





They can’t all be the best Harlem Shake video but Azealia…girl did you work it in this one. She is completely brilliant.

♡ Kaelah Bee is running an amazing contest that all of my ladies should check out.


How cute is this photo of Drew Barrymore?! So cute.

♡ Love this look on Gabi’s blog this week.

♡ Here is another outfit post but I couldn’t resist when it involves an outfit covered in Bart Simpson. Thank you for sharing Anastasia Siantar!

♡ While I am obsessing over outfits check out this video. Just a great way to include a superhero shirt and look chic.

♡ How awesome is this wedding invitation? Pretty amazing, right!

♡ I just read this amazing post by the lovely Gala and had to share it. Always go your own way.


♡ I went to one of the best cinemas in all of the United States known as Cinetopia. ♡ I ate a bunch of lemons which is a great week for me. I enjoy eating lemons. ♡ Went on random Portland adventures and found this wonderful shop. ♡ Played some classic video games at Ground Kontrol. ♡ I got to drink a ton of dirty Shirley Temples and ate vegan nachos.  ♡ I started using my new purse notebook. ♡ I had the chance to go to the wonderful Powell Books. ♡ I bought this because it was necessary. ♡ Did a ton of Sprinkle and Booze improvement research which is always satisfying.  ♡ I am more than likely going to be buying this for myself for my birthday. ♡ Had relatively vivid and intense dreams that were all amazing. ♡ I gave a good friend a proper pep talk about her future company which will definitely be brilliant. ♡ Made a ton of style boards in which I am proud of. ♡ Told a guy in a restaurant he dropped his wallet. ♡ Pet adorable tiny dogs. ♡ Shared my Betsey Johnson love with a stranger.  ♡ Gave a hug.


What did you love this week? What are you proud of? What do you have planned for next week? Next week is my final full week in Portland for a little while and then I am back to the East coast and have a lot to do when I get back. So many dreams to make a reality and so little time.


Shimmy, shake it and keep it rollin’,

Sprinkles vs Sparkles: PDX stylin’.

Friday, February 22nd, 2013


So, i’ve been in Portland, OR for a week and two days and I must say it is LOVE! Like mind-blowing sex in a cushion fort sort of awesome.

It’s been a few weeks since i’ve posted a Sprinkles vs Sparkles due to the fact that i’ve been running around like a crazy person for days on end and I didn’t have time to compile all that is awesome from the week. But here we are folks get ready for the awesome and all that is good. For those that aren’t sure what the hell I am talking about at all, Sprinkles vs Sparkles is sort of my version of a gratitude list but more hyper active. I will share my weekly Sprinkles which will consist of things i’ve found via the internet (and off of the internet) during the week that I loved and my Sparkles which will be all over my personal achievements towards goals and wonderful things within my personal life.

So let’s get to it then!



♡ This Vine video by Reggie Watts made me smile.

Sprinkles vs Sparkles: Surrounded by Love

Friday, January 25th, 2013


This week (and last week) have been completely nuts, seriously. It is one of those crazy periods of life where if you get a moment,you take total advantage of that moment and bum it up. So I apologize for the lack of blog posts but I am back in the swing of things. ❤

Being that I have a collection of awesomeness to share with you guys for this week’s Sprinkles vs Sparkles, I will get right to it.





“Confetti is like a partier version of snow!” Andrew WK always has the best party tips.

♡ Per usual, Gala always providing helpful blogger tips.

♡ Free college courses online! Learn something new.

♡ The lineup for this year’s Governors Ball is to die for!

♡ If I ever get married I am totally going to trash the dress.

♡ 50 awesome pre and post-workout snacks!

This very weird commercial.




 I added red to the ends of my hair and fell in love with it.

♡ Went to the first ever Brunch with Brittany of ChiChi212. ♡ I was asked to have some of my photography in an art show. I haven’t been in an art show in ages and I am so grateful and excited! ♡ I performed in a burlesque performance for a release party for FC Beat Magazine. It was a wonderful evening and I think I might be obsessed with performing. ♡ Went to a recording of Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell and it was brilliant.

I’m famous! ♡ Was super excited for all of the new Blogcadets that went to Blogcademy this past week in London. ♡ Ended an emotional chapter in my life that I was holding on to for no good reason.
