Sadly, my Sundance Film Festival trip ends here y’all. Although a warm-weather girl by geography, I’m your bonafide snowbunny 3 winter months outta the year.
I’m not one to collect shot glasses or promotional T-shirts or even postcards on vacay. The types of souvenirs that speak to me comes courtesy of local antique stores and thrift shops throughout town. Although Park City is a total mountain resort, I was able to hunt down a second-hand Christian shop no larger than your average master bedroom.
I grew up in Huntington Beach, surf city USA;
Home of tanned/toned bodies, long blonde locks and TONS of new American eateries. I can recall the most scrumptious Mom-and-Pop shops serving up some delicious low-cal, SoCal cuisine of made-to-order deli sandwiches, Cajun-style-broasted chicken, some Chicago-style ribs, and even a general store or two which stocked so much retro candy you’d think time warped back to the 50’s.
This time next week I’ll be snowboarding down the slopes of Utah’s most celebrated resorts, celeb-watching all the indie darlings (and possible movie stars, oh yeah Ryan Gosling, I’m lookin’ at you!!), dining-a-deux by warm fires, and hopefully partying it up into the wee hours of the morn. I’ve been DYING to partake in ParkCity’s annual Sundance Film Festival all my life and now FINALLY getting the chance to do so. Here is the MAIN reason why:
Just a quick Hello to announce that I was crowned MissPepper 2013 y’all!!!
So many changes, so little time…Are y’all just as flustered for the start of the New Year as I am? Having worked straight through the holidays and right into 2013, I’m FINALLY starting to sit down to fully examine what’s trending this year….Starting with Pantone’s pick for Color of the Year: Emerald!!!
Happy New Year hunnies!!!
What better way to kick start 2013 than with loads of delectable, greasy, wok-fired Chinese cuisine courtesy of Duck House in Monterey Park?!?!! Notorious for the BEST Peking duck in town, Duck House’s claim-to-fame traditional roasted Peking duck features thinly sliced house pancakes, fresh shredded scallions and cold-as-ice cucumbers served with house-made hoisin sauce.
