Ah, summer...

The sun-kissed days of wine, pancake and tasty frappuccino are back to greet us all. Where will you be? If things go according to plan, I'll be vacationing in Zurich, Frankfurt, Brussels, Amsterdam, Paris and Rome (where I look forward to meeting my Halien friend @FraLuvsHaleyAmy after our failed plan to meet each other back in LA). Decisions will be made next week so I'll be sure to keep everyone posted.

Guitar class has brought back the passion of music-making. With the help of my mentor Tony, I've been picking up new chords that were unfamiliar to me before I signed up. I've also learned to play 4 songs in their entirety, including:

  1. "Let It Go" (Demi Lovato)

  2. "Rolling in the Deep" (Adele)

  3. "Seven Impossible Days" (Mr. Big)

  4. "This Love" (Maroon 5)

Pretty jammin' if you ask me!

After all the films I've seen this year (Divergent, American Hustle, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the Veronica Mars movie and The Other Woman) I now look forward to the premiere of Maleficent with the wickedly spectacular Angelina Jolie and the Grace Kelly biopic Grace of Monaco starring the classy Nicole Kidman as the Hollywood movie star turned Monaco queen. I know it's been playing all over Europe but I can't wait for the day it opens here. My friend on_the_ground must also be anticipating it over there in Spain.

I see that people have started to get the perks they signed up for as part of Haley's new music video campaign, so I'm excited for my new Haley photo to arrive... along with her autograph ;) "Show Me Your Moves" must be one catchy tune!

Searching for a fun, delicious summer read? Look no further than The Espressologist by Kristina Springer.
If Jane Austen's Emma is your cup of tea, this modern interpretation of the classic in the world of charming young baristas is highly recommended! Don't forget your favorite coffee, latte and hot chocolate.

Coming up this Sunday: my cousin's guitar concert. So thrilled to support her very first debut.

We're going back and forth between West Europe and Japan now. It's most likely gonna be Japan this summer 'cause my parents will be coming with me, and they don't want to leave work too long so Japan sounds about right (and fits our budget more). But it's cool 'cause I can't wait to catch up with my Japanese classmates I regularly played shows with back in LA. And Disney Sea sounds intriguing.

Some Haliens have been receiving her handwritten lyrics (sealed with a kiss lol) so hopefull we'll get our perks soon.

It also makes the perf Fall read. While it has a cliched plot, the idea itself really grabs you with the main character acting as a matchmaker for her customers based on their usual coffee order :)
