Dating diaries tidbit: Blank space


Do you ever feel like your dating life mirrors every Taylor Swift song ever written? I know I definitely have moments like that. Like seriously what the eff? Whenever this happens, I think to myself, this would be a really great song... and then I come back to reality and remember that I am not a song writer nor can I carry a tune in a bucket. I'm just a girl living her life, hoping for love, and looking in all the wrong places.
But in all honesty when I stop and look back at all of the ridiculous dates that I've been on and all of the slightly bizarre people that I've met, I can't help but laugh. We're all just doing the best that we can in life and we all want the same thing, which is love. So here I am totally confessing that I am grateful at this point in my life to have had all of the dating experiences that I have had so far. I am happy about all of the crazy folk that I have met because at the end of the day it was just a silly moment and most of them taught me more about myself (and seriously upped my patience factor) and at the very least helped me to grow. After taking a pause from the dating scene, I'm ready to put myself back on the crazy train. So here's to the next batch of adventurous dates!

My first time....

Well the day finally came... that's right guys! It was my first time going to a Dodger game. You would think that a born and raised southern California girl would have experienced this by now, I mean I did just turn 33! Well it took all of 33 years but it was finally worth it.


My friend Justin and I went to the game this past Saturday at Dodger stadium. The Angels played the Dodgers and my friend, a loyal Dodger fan was upset about me sporting the color red. But in my defense, I didn't know who the dodgers were going to play and I also bought and sported a dodger hat. Wearing both blue and red to confuse anyone around me.


One of my other purchases was a foam finger and I have to tell you, it was the best purchase in years. Money well spent. The foam finger alone was worth the trip! I also experienced my very first Dodger dog, which wasn't too shabby either!

I will say that I thought that it was pretty awesome seeing Justin Turner hit a homerun. Go blue go! But for me the highlight was when the batters would go up to bat and they picked their own music that played to help pump them up. I never knew that they did that! I was very pleasantly surprised that my new favorite baseballer, Turner, chose my other favorite ginger, Ed Sheeran. Gotta support the gingers ladies! And it's nice to see that they stick together too.


It was a successful game! I got my Dodger hat, my foam finger, a Dodger dog, and a little Ed Sheeran on the side. What a field of dreams people! If you follow my Snapchat (StarrJoy1) you saw the whole thing go down, along with the car ride home, which was just priceless (a singalong may or may not have taken place the entire way). So thank you J for making my first time at a Dodger game so memorable!

Gold foil abstract paintings

I've really gotten into abstract painting lately. I love splashes of color. I thought it would be cool to add some flair to the canvas with gold foil. If you follow my snapchat, StarrJoy1, you know I've been playing around with it a lot lately. Here are some of my creations that will be available for purchase in the shop. 



Stay tuned for more!

Dating Diaries tidbit: My face with every guy I date

It never fails. I always seem to have this reaction and make this face with EVERY single guy that I have dated. I feel you Sally Fields! Ugh!


Can you relate?

Britney Spears - Glory

If ya'll know me at all, you know that I am the BIGGEST Britney Spears fan Evs! I have every single one of her albums. I went to see her Circus tour with two inflamed gums and chipmunk cheeks due to a wisdom teeth malfunction. I supported her through her Sinead O Connor era (deep breath. Let's not discuss those dark days any further). Anyway, I wanted to share my thoughts on her new album, Glory. Her style has changed throughout the years and she's definitely embracing the nasal tones of her voice, but I am obsessed! My favorite tracks are "Make me...", "Private show", and the super fun "What you need". Notable second favs are "Invitation", "Man on the moon", "Slumber party", and the bonus "Better", "Liar", and "If I'm dancing".  Way to go Brit! And way to make me oooh! Best way to get the dance party started!


Have you heard Glory yet? What's your favorite song?

My birthday at Malibu Farm

Thursday was my birthday. The weather was gorgeous (it usually rains on my birthday). So I wanted to make excellent use of the sunny skies.  My best friend took me to Malibu Farm in Malibu (duh) to celebrate. Everything is Fresh, organic, and local. (Which the sign clearly states).


We started off with some mimosas. Easy on the orange juice please! 


I ordered the Grilled cheese panini (with bacon, of course). It was simply mouth watering.


My bestie got the tortilla salad and the pasta and meatballs for her son. She thought it was good but the meatballs were a little spicy for a kid's entrée.

It was all so delicious! A relaxed time in a beautiful location with a few of my favorite people.


We walked the pier and took in the gorgeous scenery! It doesn't get any better than Southern California.


I love this little man!


33 feels pretty good!


And roses for me to end on a perfect note!


I had a beautiful birthday celebration with my best friend. Just what I needed!

XOXO
