Parenthood teaches you some hard lessons about time and patience. You always have less time than you think to accomplish your goals and you always need tons more patience than you ever thought you were capable of. My son, Deco is almost five and I have definitely found it challenging to balance motherhood with my creative pursuits, but I refuse to give up. To keep my creative spirit alive I have spent the past year creating content for my YouTube channel Super Cali Listic where I document the fun, precious, crazy and fleeting moments of parenthood. Thanks for watching, laughing and crying with us.
Happy Halloween from Super Cali Land. Halloween is not complete with out a visit to a pumpkin patch.
A lot has happened since I first started this blog – but it seems the constant in my life is keeping everything Super Cali. What is Super Cali? It’s a laid back lifestyle where keeping it real and fun is more important than looking good or being popular. If you want a break from our crazy and desperate times come hang with me and my adorable family in Super Cali Land.
It’s high art on Super Cali Listic this week as a hair rant turns into husband appreciation. To add sparkle to your weekly routine click here:
This week it’s back to Super Cali Land to confess the details of my double life as a succulent thief:
When I heard the cheerleaders from my school were organizing a breast cancer awareness, pink, cowboy themed alumni cheer event at my high school’s football game. I was like, “You had me at PINK!” But when I strolled up to my alma mater with Gramsie and baby and saw the other girls that showed up to practice the cheer routine I realized that maybe they meant “if you graduated in the last five years alumni cheerleading event”. But it was too late, I was there. So I learned that routine and worked it on the field. SuperCaliListic representing for baby mamas everywhere.
I like so many new moms think we can cook, clean, bath, burp and still manage to have time for our own endeavors. The truth is you need help, and even then you’re working overtime. And now cue the cliche “But it’s the best thing I’ve ever done” and it’s true it is. I LOVE my little man. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t have moments where I go completely bonkers. Like this week when I TRIED to shoot a video about my trip to YouTube Space LA…
When both Jesse and Deco managed to break limbs (toe and leg respectively) the week before Halloween it only seemed fitting to dress up as one of fiction’s creepiest nurses – Annie Wilkes from Stephen King’s MISERY…
I’ve been cruising with the iPhone 4s for quite some time now, or I should say over two years and time to upgrade baby! So Deco, Jesse Legs and I took a stroll to the Apple store and I walked out with a beautiful white and silver number (blue leather case – Jesse’s pick – for interested parties). And staying true to my camera whore ways I of course documented the whole thing on video. First with my iPhone 4s and then with my iPhone 5s. For a very informative video review of course, not as a thinly veiled excuse to shoot a sparkly vid for my YouTube channel SuperCaliListic…
My friend Rachel Koo is a designer for the very hip label Black Halo. And this week she invited me to come and shop their sample dresses. With Press Night for American Psycho around the corner it was perfect timing. Despite my tired mommy shenanigans, this video has a high sparkle factor as I get to visit the label’s downtown hub and try on some stunning dresses.
