Japan LA, a hot spot for Japanese pop culture merchandise on famous Melrose Ave in L.A, celebrated their 7-Year Anniversary this year and threw a party inside the store to commemorate the occasion. The party attracted local Kawaii style lovers alike who could shop for cute merchandise including Lime Crime cosmetics and Locketship accessories pop-up shops inside the store. Some of my most adorable friends showed up for the party in true Kawaii spirit!
Following the debut of Micheline Pitt‘s “Modern Pinup Makeup & Hair” DVD at Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend, a DVD release party was held at the Pinup Girl Clothing Boutique in Burbank, CA. I had previously picked up a copy of the DVD in Vegas, but went to the Release Party to show support and enjoy a beautiful night out at the PUG boutique. I also got another signed copy of the DVD to do a GIVEAWAY for my YouTube subscribers and Facebook Fans. Watch my VIDEO below for details.

Dapper Day at Disney parks brings people together to celebrate the tradition of “stepping out in style” and is a day to visit one of the parks dressed in elegant clothing from vintage -inspired to contemporary fashions. Created in Spring of 2011, Dapper Day was inspired by original Disney park illustrations which often featured well dressed guests. It is currently celebrated at The Disney Resorts in LA, Orlando, and Paris. This was my 1st Dapper Day and I decided to do a vlog to share the experience with everyone, so please watch my fun video at the end of this post!
Disneyland has always been one of my favorite places to hang out since I was a kid growing up in Southern California! I love being in a timeless magical world where everyone can be free to dress up and have fun at any age! One of my most recent trips to Disneyland was with my good friends Charis Lincoln from CharismaStarTV on YouTube and Traci Hines, everyone’s favorite mermaid, singer/ entertainer whom I’ve shared many Belle Candy Adventures with and blogged about several times. On this visit, we filmed a Disney Fashion Series episode for CharismaStarTV, featuring Ariel “The Little Mermaid” & Princess Jasmine from “Aladdin”. You can watch the awesome video at the end of this post.

IMATS (International Make-up Artist Trade Show) is the largest make-up show in the world and is held once a year in Los Angeles, New York, London, Vancouver, B.C, Sydney and Toronto. Thousands of makeup artists, vendors and makeup enthusiasts gather to shop the latest products and hear celebrity artists speak and demonstrate their craft with live models. I always have such a great time seeing friends in the makeup biz and meeting new people! IMATS has rolled around again (way earlier than usually scheduled) and I did not get a chance to post about the last show from June 2012 yet! I had so much fun and have tons of pictures to share from the entire weekend! So be prepared for a big glitterific picture post!
Lil Rae Cakes, founded by the fun-loving and wildly creative baker Jenny Rae
(pictured above with me) recently celebrated 2 years in the Cake Ball business and to mark this special occasion, Jenny threw a fun anniversary party at Sweet Harts Bakery in Sherman Oaks, CA where her famous cake balls are sold. The party had an entertaining Pee Wee Herman theme which included a photo booth, costume contest and special appearance by singer/ entertainer and my favorite mermaid, Traci Hines! But the star of the night was most definitely the AMAZINGLY delicious Cake Balls that Jenny Rae made in a vast assortment of mouth-watering flavors and colors!
The Christmas season is my favorite time of year to decorate! Sparkling lights, colorful decorations, sweet treats and candylicious gingerbread houses fill my home during the holidays! I didn’t have time to do a video tour, but I wanted to share what Christmas looks like at my house with some photos of my tree and my Candyland Christmas village! The theme for my Belle Candy Christmas tree and village was sweet confections, of course!
