Good things are coming this way!!!

So when I thought I was having a bad couple of days..this comes along and makes my whole week!! I fashion designers dream! The first step to making it big..ger!haha
How it first started was I had met the Head Editor of NYLON magazine about 3 or so years back. And told him one day I would have a line and would love to do something with NYLON...well, the line will be coming up on our first year and I just got an email from the Fashion Editor saying they want to do a photo shoot this Friday. So I over nighted the clothes and I crossed my fingers...Today, I get an email saying they want to interview me!!yaaaayy! One of my favorite magazines is going to write about Monn'Amur! Ahhhh!! Iam smiling right now! My little heart is so very very happy right now..hehehe
Its for the October issue,,,i think! Lets keep an eye out!
AND THEN!!! Last night while I was in a meeting, I get a phone call from this girl asking if Iam the designer for Monn'Amr..Iam this someone playing a game on me?? Right after I ask who she is, she says "Iam ~~ from Womans Wear Daily"
ahhhhhh part2! I was ..I dont know what I was. Iam happy again now though! Anyways, I delivered the line myself early this morning for a photo shoot tomorrow and next week!!!yay yay ya~y! Another favorite of mine. I subscribe to both of these, read them all the time! These are the magazines I take to travel , the gym, the park, the car wash the list goes on.
Iam still a year old, but we are making progress!
Also watch out for press in Japan! I sent out a bunch down there too!
Iam giving myself a little pat on the back! ;)

We went to Beverly Hills for work and we couldnt figure out where to eat. So we decided to go upstairs and enjoy a glass of wine with our meal. So up we went to the Neiman Marcus Mens floor BAR on 4. You can enjoy looking out at Century City while you have your sweet fancy shmancy lunchie.I ordered an egg sandwich and it was topped of with some caviar! ooooo!
Eggs and more eggs!!! But, I must say, it was very yummy! None of us was unhappy. They also had treats from my fav "Sweet Lady Jane" on 3rd. We all left with Smiles on our faces..even though our bill was $171!!!!eeek! Cant do this everyday kids! Maybe twice a year! I think I used up all my fancy lunch dates! hehehe

Fancy Lunches!

So the past week was busy, but everything was better cus we had some fancy lunches! It didnt feel like the original lunches I have in downtown DOWNTOWN! If you know what I mean!!
This lunch was at the BareFoot Cafe on 3rd St. We had lunch with my pal Eri. She has her own fashion blog! I hard working mama! go check it out you guys!

Animals are the best!

My dad sent me this video to me this morning, and I thought it as an amazing story. The lion is so happy! Maybe you have seen it already with all the hits on youtube and it was on the Today show etc...but its sooo cute! Animals will always be animals, but they have feelings too! They love just like we love.

Why so serious??

So, this might not be the best time to post this ( with batman getting arrested and all) But, I was one of the people who stood in line on opening night to watch the movie. We started standing in line from 10:30pm and the movie started 12:30am! And the thing was, that I didnt know the movie was 2 and a half hours long! So my day all began at waking up at 7am in the morning and not taking a disco nap. The results falling asleep every now and then..and not understanding what was going on. BUT! you know what, I went to watch the movie for a 2nd time!!Standing in line again for the 2nd time..and the movie was GREEEAAAT! ( like tony the tiger greeaat!) Heath Ledger was amazing! SO good, I totally forgot it was him! He is and always will be such an awesome actor....
OH, and with the new iphone apps thingie, Ive been downloading some silly thingies. And the Batman one was one of them. You take pix of you or friends and stamp them with Batman prints! fun, fun!!

Christian Dior

Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2008-2009
Brilliant! Galliano is amazing! I love this show....

It's too HOT... dreaming of my coldstone ice cream

Here Iam , wearing my new favorite sun glasses outside in very very hot Echo Park area. There is a very funny story behind all this, but will tell you next time!
And here is the Cold stone ice cream I cannot stop dreaming about. It was Sweet cream (ice cream) with waffle cone, chocolate shavings, marshmallows and caramel...mmmmmmm it was sooooo gooood~
I call it the" Attack of the Marshmallow Ninja's" ..( you cant really see the white little marshmallows until they are in your mouth!)

Out all day with the pups

So I had to stay out of the house all day because they were smoking down the house.Killing those termites! yuk
And so we had to stay out of the house all day. Started off with a starbucks breakfast.(too bad they are closing so many stores!but I did hear that themcdonalds coffee tastes better than the starbucks now,and its cheaper) any how, we did that, then went to our favorite dog park.Mel did his thing and mingled with the other doggies and Coco just hung out with me. It was hot out, so we didnt stay there for too long.But did make a new friend, Quincy. Quincy is there everyday. Hope my doggies didnt hear that!:) And I treated myself to a relaxing facial and went back home! Busy busy!!
Tomorrow is July 4th, so I need to get everything ready for a fun filled pool bbq day! Will post pictures, if I can remember to take them!hehe
