It will likely come as very little surprise to learn that I spent another Sunday at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA yesterday but at least I’m ready to let y’all know why, exactly, I’ve been spending so much time in the Disney parks. For the past few months I’ve been mulling over the decision to join one of the unofficial Disney social clubs that have sprung up here in SoCal but because there are around 100 different fan-organized clubs, I had to figure out A.) if I was the social club joining sort of person and B.) if so, which club would I attempt to join. After a few weeks of hanging out in the parks with my friends, I’ve been scoping out the options and got to know the members of the social club Sons of Anakin. I’m very happy to say that I’ve met some really great people in the process and have been asked to join their club. Yesterday, I said yes. More »
Yesterday I enjoyed a fun-filled day celebrating two of my best friends ever. Ollie hosted a superfun birthday party in Griffith Park that offered her guests a massive bouncy house. Yes, it was all adults. Adriana hosted a more intimate dinner in Eagle Rock at Little Beast with a more sizable after party with friends at Verdugo Bar. Two of my fave ladies both in the same day, life doesn’t get much better. More »
My good friend Michael is visiting LA for a few days and a few months ago, we talked about spending some time in Disneyland the next time he visited … and yesterday was our day. As you may have noticed, I’ve been spending a bit of time at the Mouse’s House for the past few weekends so it was really a no brainer that I’d be up for a fun day of Disney with Michael. Altho it wasn’t his first time at Disneyland, there were a lot of things that he had never done so it was pretty much like he was a virgin visitor. Bless his heart. We managed to do all the things that he wanted to do as well as a few integral things that I knew we had to do. So, basically, we had the best day ever. More »

Last night a bunch of Eileen’s friends got together for a fun birthday dinner at Medieval Times in Buena Park, CA so that we could celebrate her big day in style … in Game of Thrones style. In all honesty, Medieval Times doesn’t really have anything to do with GoT but we did our best to turn the entire experience into a GoT fest. It had been many years since I last visited Medieval Times but I’m happy to report that the experience is just as fun as I remembered. We snapped some fun photos, which you have to check out below … especially because of how hot our red & yellow knight was ;D More »

Today is my dear friend Eileen‘s birthday so, first and foremost, I want to send her all the Birthday Lurve in the world on her special day! I’ve known Eileen for a few years now but in the past year or so, she and I have gotten much closer and have been hanging out a lot more frequently. I’m very much looking forward to celebrating her birthday with her tonight. Eileen has decided to have her birthday celebration take place at Medieval Times! I AM SO EXCITED! I hope you will join me in sending Eileen some birthday love ;) More »
Yesterday was one of my beloved TV binging days, which wasn’t supposed to turn into a full day of binging but, you know, these things happen. On the advice of my good friend Tamar and countless other fans of the show that have suggested I start watching over the years, I finally decided to check out the FX series Sons of Anarchy. The news last week that Marilyn Manson has been added to the upcoming 7th season of the show sparked my curiosity and, well, I decided to watch a few episodes to see if it was something I might like. Just a short time ago, I finished the season 2 finale episode. More »

Yesterday was a really nice, really relaxing day for me. I met up with my friend Sheela for a fab brunch at Mauro’s Cafe inside Fred Segal in West Hollywood and then spent the rest of the day maxin’ and relaxin’ at home. I ventured out for a bit of a drive last night and found myself in the vicinity of the Happiest Place on Earth. I decided to pay a little visit to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure for a snack and ended up meeting up with some folks for a fun hang for the rest of the night. Ahh, life is grand in SoCal, let me tell you. More »
Yesterday was a great day for me in sunny LA because I got to spend it in the close company of dear friends AND new friends. Because Darion’s mom Janai flew into town for his surprise birthday party Friday night, she was available for a quick brunch yesterday morning and I jumped at the chance to spend more time with her before she had to fly back home. I met up with Darion, Omar and Janai and Cecconi’s in West Hollywood for a great brunch hang session. After I ran a few errands, I spent a lovely day on the couch just relaxing like a mofo before I met up with Adriana and her friend Vanessa and Brian and his beautiful fiancée Jessie last night. They wanted to see Maleficent, I was dying to see it again and so … our night was made. More »

Hey, guess what! Pink is the new Blog is 10 years old today. It’s kinda hard for me to believe that it’s been a decade since I “officially” launched PITNB but … ’tis true. I have been blogging longer than PITNB‘s 10 years (I believe I started my first blog back in 2012 but my site on easyjournal.com was lost years ago when the site shut down) but it was back on June 1, 2004 that I decided to focus my random blogging into something more uniform, more focused … more pink. I’ve been thinking for the past couple of months about how to mark the occasion today and in the end, I decided to just write a simple blogpost about it. Back when I started blogging, there weren’t very many blogs on the Interwebs. I didn’t know what the Hell I was doing, I just wrote stuff and shared it online with whoever was out there who cared enough to bother. Over the years, I’ve been lucky enough to reach quite a lot of people and the course of my life was changed forever. Let’s go back 10 years to June of 2004 and remember a bit the way things were in the blogosphereTM a decade ago this month. More »
Last night I made my way out to the Shrine Auditorium here in LA to see the final date of Lana Del Rey‘s concert tour. Altho I really hate seeing shows at the Shrine due to its usually terrible security, horrible sight lines and generally shabby appearance, I really wanted to see LDR on this tour. I’m happy to relay that Lana put on a great show, even if the venue left much to be desired. After the show, I had to race back to Hollywood to attend a SUPERHERO surprise party for Darion! His friends worked really hard to pull off this surprise party so I had to make it out and celebrate Darion in the most superhero-iest way possible. More »
