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:
Since I’ve left Super Cali Land for wintry London I’ve enjoyed shooting whatever happens to catch my eye in the moment. From construction workers outside our flat window to watching BBC with baby, here are some of my favorite moving pictures so far…
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.
The other day Deco was napping, the dishes were done, the laundry was folded AND there was still lots of daylight. So of course, I sat down to my favorite past time – firing up iMovie for video log 236 and counting. Some might say I have a problem, but I like to think of it as a much needed creative outlet for this overworked mommy and aspiring filmmaker. But just as I sat down to ramble about God knows what, Jesse wandered into my shot and unwittingly became my Super Cali subject. I think you’ll agree after watching this video that I’m right in wanting him and his sexy legs to be in more of my Super Cali vids. For those of you just coming to the party, Jesse and I have a very strict agreement that I can film him, but only from the waist down.

My YouTube obsession started with a crazy girl named Andie Mills and her adventures with BFF Babs Darling.

Fast forward a few years and I’m still striking a pose, only the casting has changed to my beautiful baby boy, Deco. Shh! Don’t tell Babs, she’d die of jealously.
