Its Summer! I’m Back! June 15, 2012

WOW the last time I posted on here was right before two of my best friend’s 21st birthdays and yes that weekend was “crayyy” as i put it. hahaha My friend’s Kelsey and Karissa are best friend’s and their birthdays are like 2 days apart and so we all got together in the city(San Fran) and went out Thursday, Friday, and Saturday that weekend.  On Thursday we went to this club called Temple and it was Ritual Dubstep that night. Amazing!  On Friday we went to the Mission and went to this Martini bar called Blondies which has the most amazing Martinis.  Over 25 different types to choose from and you get a huge glass with the extra in a glass! That night they had live music as well and we danced the night away.  The next day we went to House of Air, a trampoline filled warehouse where you can jump and jump and play trampoline dodgeball!  We all got so into it we actually got a little pissed at the kids that we were playing against. hahaha  That night we went out in the Mission again and ended up have to run to the muni so we didn’t miss it…that was not fun.

  • Rebelution concert
  • Slanted Door
  • Giants Game

Asian Art Museum and a peek into Castro Confidential January 16, 2012

Filed under: ART,dance/electronic,hip hop/rap,Movies,Music,My Life — kateliveslaughsloves @ 8:35 am


On Wednesday, I finally made it to the Asian Art Museum in SF to see the Secrets of the Maharaja exhibition as well as Sanjay Patel’s Deities, Demons, and Dude’s with ‘Staches.

The Maharaja exhibit was amazing!  All the robes and jewelry that the royalty of India wore; I’m talking diamonds, rubies, emeralds, pearls, silver, gold…and all the hookahs and spice jars and games they played.  The exhibit also showcased the decoration and adornments of the elephants for when they were decorated for processions and ceremonial events.  I highly recommend this exhibition.  It’s only $12 for students and $17 for adults to see the Maharaja exhibit as well as the rest of the museum and you get the audio for free!

I’ve just recently become interested in more contemporary Indian and Asian art from the Contemporary Asian Art class that I took last semester and Sanjay Patel’s animations of the Hindu gods are sa-weeet! I’m tellin ya they are so cool! I bought the poster book of them and have been showing my friends and looking through it non-stop!  Here’s what it looks like:

sooooo awesome!

So, after the Museum, my friend Makiko and I met up with Kyle and took muni to the Castro for Happy Hour!  First we went to this club/bar called the Lookout. We sat outside, upstairs and had a great view of the Castro Streets below us.  We got Margaritas and Chips and guac there and after headed to Harvey’s and once there Makiko and I ordered pear ciders and Kyle got a Bloody Mary.  I was starving by this point and I ordered a Chicken Tostada, which was amazing and my friends took the liberty of devouring it with me. 🙂  On our way back to the Muni station we got cookies at HOT COOKIE.  best snickerdoodle ever!

Top 5 Songs of the Week:

  1. Heartbreaker feat. LOVEFOXXX – Steve Aoki
  2. Werk Me – Hyper Crush
  3. Niggas in Paris – Kanye West and Jay-Z
  4. Summer is Over – Jon McLaughlin and Sara Bareilles
  5. Take Care feat. Rihanna – Drake (CANT STOP LISTENING TO THIS SONG!!!)

I also saw Contraband with Mark Wahlberg last night and I definitely recommend it!

Filed under: Books,Movies,Music,My Life,Television — kateliveslaughsloves @ 7:09 am

It’s only a week into 2012 and I already have had a nice relaxing four day vacation and a New Year’s I will never forget!

On New Year’s I went to Sea of Dreams, with Santigold, Beats Antique, and Aman Tobin! All of my favorite people accompanied me and we had the time of our lives!! It was a night I will never forget! Waking up in SF the next morning was amazing! It was a clear, sunny, beautiful day and we went and got coffee and breakfast at Java Beach and spent the afternoon at the beach! I can’t wait for this year! It will hopefully be a big year with lots of amazing adventures!

Today I just got back from a quick vacation to Soda Springs!  Unfortunately there was absolutely no snow but it was still freezing cold.  We drove to Boontown, NV the first day and went to Cabela’s, the biggest outdoor shop ever! We went shooting and played games and cooked all our meals! It was a nice trip with some great friends!  I wish there was snow though so we could have played in the snow and gone snowboarding!! Hopefully we will get back up there once it snows!

New season of Shameless started tonight! Cant wait for this season it is gonna be great!

I also cannot wait to begin the The Girl Who Played With Fire, I just finished the 1st book and saw the new movie (INSANE)!!! Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me, an Xmas gift from my sister is another book i can’t wait to begin!

I think I am going to start a new thing where at the end of every post I list my 5 favorite songs of the week, which will make me post more and listen to more amazing music!

So this week my 5 favs are:

  1. Take Care feat. Rihanna – Drake
  2. Creator – Santigold
  3. The Best Thing I Never Had – Beyonce
  4. Do Ya Thang – Rihanna
  5. Set Fire to the Rain – ADELE

CSS @The Fillmore! October 10, 2011

Filed under: Music,My Life — kateliveslaughsloves @ 2:54 am

On Thursday, Oct. 6th i went to one of the best concerts of my life! CSS is a group from Brazil and I started listening to them in high school.  Their song Music is My Hot Hot Sex was my favorite song for zoo long and then i discovered that all their music was amazing.  Some of my favorite song include, Lets Reggae all Night, Move, City Girl, Hits Me Like a Rock, Jager Yoga, and La Liberacion.  

The show was at the Fillmore in SF and my friend Kyle went with me! The opening act was a group called Cookie Dough and to my surprise they were a group of drag queens!! It was amazing!! check them out in the Castro every Thursday Night at The Edge Bar !!

The next group was MEN and they were amazing as well.  JD Samson is an amazing musician and the rest of the band killed it! Check them out here!!

I don’t exactly know what I was expecting to happen next, but I was soo excited for CSS to start! The band came out and started getting read and then LOVEFOXXX came out in a cape and a kitten mask and started singing the first song and I was hooked! CSS is soooo full of energy and they are all so happy and LOVEFOXXX is crazy!! Love her! She jumped in the crowd a few times too!  To be honest I was completely enamored by Luiza Sa, the guitarist. She is just such a great musician and so beautiful! love her!!!  So basically I never wanted this show to end but when it did I completely amazed.  CSS has so much energy!  I ended up getting the set list and Luiza’s guitar pick! And then as we were about to leave we saw LOVEFOXX and Luiza taking pics with everyone! So I got pics with both of them and they signed my set list!!! SO AMAZING!  Definitely check out CSS if you haven’t heard of them, your life will change! CSS

Here are a few pics of the night!! xoxo

Rain Rain Go Away…. June 7, 2011

Filed under: Books,Food,Movies,Music,My Life,Television — kateliveslaughsloves @ 7:20 am

I cannot believe how long it has taken me to update on here! So much has happened in the last 3 months, I literally don’t know here to start. This post might have to come in stages because its going to be a long one. lets start at the very beginning…a very good place to start (haha name that movie)!  At the end of March, I went to VEGAS with Jessica and we had an amazing time! We stayed at the Polo Towers on the strip, right next to Planet Hollywood!  We saw the lions at MGM Grand, the water show at the Bellagio, stayed out till 6am, saw Fergie, and went to the best club (Chateau) and saw Flo Rida perform for freee!  After Vegas we drove all the way back to Santa Barbara, surprised Kyle (AKA got free cupcakes) and then I hung out in Santa Barbara for a few days and got to see old friends and seriously had an amazing, relaxing Spring Break!  April was a crazy school month, started to get “Senioritits” even though I didn’t graduate (got a whole nother year) 😦  ON EASTER SUNDAY, I had to go on a Geology Fieldtrip, which I was pretty pissed about, but it ended up being a lot of fun! We went to Pt. Lobos and spent the whole day in the woods, at the beach, walking around learning about ROCKS.  At the end of the month, I headed down to L.A. for Kyle’s Graduation from Pepperdine! I got lucky and got to stay down there for 5 days, so it was like a mini-vacation!  On Friday I went shopping at the Grove with Kyle’s Fam, saw Rob Lowe and Julia Stiles (LUMEN!!!), saw Kyle get awarded for being awesome in his specialty (Sorry I forget the correct name), watched like 5 movies, saw Kyle Graduate on the windiest day ever, got my computer stolen (yep I know), made a bombbb dinner, and got to relax and hang with my favorite person for 5 whole days!  MAY, ohh the month of May, fun-filled May.  Sister’s and Brother’s b-days, Gigantes Game (Cinco de Mayo), Finals, Celebrating (graduations, friends returning from Europe), Jazz Festival (Sheryl Crow), Movies–Bridesmaids, Pirates (twice), Hangover II, etc.  And now, its only 6 days into June, and it’s already been the craziest month out of them all.  Kyle came to Sonoma before he jetted off to North Carolina for the summer, my Grandparents from New York came to Sonoma for my Brother’s Graduation, my Bro graduated high school, saw X-Men: First Class (BLAHHHH), have eaten some amazing food (Sugo-Petaluma, Old Chicagos-Petaluma, Saddles-Sonoma, Harvest Moon-Sonoma), Gloria Ferrar, being with family and staying up late with friends, all I need is the sun!!!!

Today was non-stop.  Woke up at 6:30 to take Grandparents to the airport.  Got home around 10am, watched an episode of Justified (MUST WATCH SHOW!!! TIMOTHY OLYPHANT!!!!), went to Petaluma with Erin and saw Water for Elephants (SOOO good, read the book too!!), came home and went to Napa with the Sis to go to TARGET!  Got home and went to Haci, and Micheocana with Kris, David, Kels, and Bonnie and watched Duplex! “ohhhh Blueberries….”  Came home to find the Giants game still on, didn’t end till 5 min ago, bottom of the 13th Giants 5 Nationals 4. BOO YAHHH.

Fall is HERE! October 12, 2010

Filed under: Books,Cooking,Movies,Music,My Life,Television — kateliveslaughsloves @ 7:05 am

while driving home tonight, i looked outside my window and saw how windy it was, all the leaves were flailing around and right then i decided that it was finally fall.  During the days, it is still pretty hot, but at night it is perfect, sun setting early, cool breeze and leaves falling on the ground, always lets me know that fall is approaching.

That means its time for Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Fall Television (Grey’s Anatomy, Weeds, Dexter, and so on), MLB Playoffs (GO GIANTS), baking (and lots of it, especially pumpkin muffins :D), etc etc.  Here is something for the baker in everyone, found at SIGN OF THE BEAR! yaya

Also this month I’ll be attending some amazing concerts, one which already happened at the end of September,

Carrie Underwood!!

This week, I will be going to my second Maroon 5 concert and could not be anymore excited!! I’m going with my friends Erin and Megan and am trying to memorize their entire new album by Friday! Check it out!

Next week, i will be going to the Justin Bieber XBOX 360 LIVE TOUR with my younger sister who is obsessed with him.  But I cannot lie, i definitely have BIEBER FEVER!! bahahaa

my friend shared this link on FB, I though it was hilarious!

I also just bought 3 new books and am soo excited to read them!

1. The Time Traveler’s Wife, one of my favorite books, which I have read 3 or 4 times already and love it more and more each time!

2. True Prep, a book that I read an excerpt from in Vanity Fair, and just had to buy it!

3. L.A. Candy: Sugar and Spice, c’mon every girl needs a trashy novel every once and a while 😉

Cant wait to read these!

i also just saw Life as we Know It, with Josh Duhamel, and Katherine Heigl last night and it was way better than expected! i cried, I laughed, and Heigl plays a baker with her own fine foods store, which I always love! Go see it!

 

That’s all for now, Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sweet Disposition February 28, 2010

Filed under: hip hop/rap,Movies,Music,My Life,rock/pop — kateliveslaughsloves @ 10:58 am

Just bought this song by the Temper Trap and i remember loving it in 500 Days of Summer but I never knew who it was…

“a moment of love, a dream, a loud, a kiss, a cry, our rights, our wrongs…wont stop till its over…wont stop till you surrender”

The past two days have been super memorable because I spent them with great friends and just having a blast. Yesterday (Friday) my friend Andy from L.A. came up to SB to visit and Jessica, Barby, Andy , and I all went bowling and i think had one of the best times I’ve had bowling. EVER.  After bowling we walked to Freebirds in the rain…not a great idea but sooooo worth it!  In between we had a mini dance party too.  And then today I didn’t do anything amazing but I pretty much had a blast with my bestie/roomie! We drove downtown around 10pm to get dinner and then got pinkberry, came back played scrabble and scatagories, and pretty much had a super fun night being random and silly!

I tried watching The Godfather today but it is just too dang long (2hrs and 57 min), so I am just going to finish it tomorrow!  Speaking of tomorrow: HOMEWORK ALL DAY! STUDY ALL DAY! NO PROCRASTINATION ALLOWED!  seriously I need to stick to this because I need to get good grades on my midterm and test that are this week!

Some New Favs:

  • Marie Claire March 2010: Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel  on the cover!
  • Change and Stop Me by Daniel Merriweather
  • Around the Bend by The Asteroids Galaxy Tour
  • Raise the Fire to the Third Bar Snow Patrol and Martha Wainwright
  • GO SEE SHUTTER ISLAND! NOW
  • and I just saw Forgetting Sarah Marshall for the first time the other night! LOVED IT!!
