M.A.C. Divine Night: Partying at the Grove, Los Angeles




Fun.

Well, that's one word to describe this event! It took place at the Grove in Los Angeles! Over the fountain, they had set up this big stage where the dancers performed, and backstage, all the amazing and talented M.A.C. makeup artists were doing makeup on all the people who went.

Everything was decked out in a 1970's, disco-esque theme with a very Studio 54 feel to it. There was amazing music... (Seriously, compliments to the DJ!) All of the dancers were great and they were all gussied up as the girl in the new Divine Night makeup collection ad and all the guys wore black pants, were shirtless, chests covered in gold glitter with matching gold leather jackets! And the makeup artists all looked so beautiful! Everyone was so fierce! 

Me and my mom kept getting compliments from everyone, and everyone just seemed so happy and they all were having such a great time. There was also an awful lot of dancing involved! As you can see in the video I posted onto my YouTube channel!


Another fun and creative thing that I thought they did was that instead of alcohol, they put hot-chocolate in little shot-glasses. It was so adorable! Although there was makeup being done all around me, I didn't get my face done. BUT I DID get some glitter on my face! You can see the application of that on my video as well!

And on Instagram, I took a lot of photos! Some of these, I haven't posted anywhere else yet!







 



So. This night was one of the best nights I've ever had! I had so much fun and I'm so glad that I threw away my insecurities and went dancing with someone I didn't even know! Hahaha! After I finish high school, I'm definitely going to do some sort of makeup thing. I'm really interested in applying for a job at the M.A.C. at the Grove! They have so many events in that area, so it'd be fun!

Also, on this ultra-lovely Friday night, I went to the Viper Room and got the amazing honor to meet Cherie Currie, singer of the Runaways!








Hope you enjoyed my video and the photos!!

The Hobbit Premiere! (Meeting Ed Sheeran, Orlando Bloom, Stephen Fry, Benedict Cumberbatch, Amanda Abbington & Martin Freeman!)


The Hobbit Premiere, December 2nd, 2013



On Monday, I went to Hollywood Boulevard to attend the other fans waiting at the Hobbit premiere! Since I am a huge, huge fan of Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch, I brought my drawings of them in hopes of them getting signed. 

Now, if you follow me, you might know that I have been trying really hard to get these drawings signed! To try to get Martin's drawing signed, I went to The World's End premiere, but little did I know that he was still in England filming the third season of BBC's Sherlock. (But I did get to meet Simon Pegg and Nick Frost!) With Benedict, I went to the August: Osage County premiere with his drawing, but he wasn't there. The next day or so, we went to the BAFTA-LA awards (although there wasn't a fan section) but again, I didn't have any luck. (At that one, though, I got to meet Alex Kingston and Karen Gillan from Doctor Who!)


So, when I saw that there would be The Hobbit premiering in town, I wrote down the date and crossed my fingers. Hopefully this would work this time!

So with my drawings, I waited and waited for it to start. I was excited, nervous, happy, and very emotional. When you're waiting for the celebrities to come out, especially when you're trying to meet some of your favorite ones, it feels very similar to waiting for someone at the airport and meeting them for the first time. When you're waiting, you keep looking around, very cautiously, to see if they're there, and you get scared that you missed something. And then there's that feeling in your gut. You're excited, yet at the same time, you're nervous. You worked very hard on getting your work signed, and you hope that the person that you want to meet is nice, or even there! 

While I was waiting, I actually got on the Hobbit Twitter and Instagram!

After a while, people started to walk down the 'black carpet' and I spotted Ed Sheeran! I called out to him, and asked him for a photo, and he was real nice. :)

A few minutes later, I looked up, and AHHH... *angels sing* Orlando Bloom was RIGHT in front of me!! I asked him for a photo, and he was really nice (and really beautiful) too!

Then I got to meet Stephen Fry, and even had a small conversation with him! "So you have a drawing of Benedict, and not of me.", he joked. He was so nice and when I kept telling him that it was an honor to meet him and that he was amazing, he said that I was amazing too! *so happy*

And then... *drum-roll* I saw Benedict Cumberbatch walking down, and I started shaking. I called out his name and held out the drawing to him and when he saw it, his eyebrows raised and he said,"Oh wow! Is this your work?" and feeling rather proud of myself then, I said 'Yes!' and gave him my Sharpie. He wrote "Thank U!" and asked me for my name and even how to spell it! He took his time with me, he really seemed to like my drawing, and that just makes me SO SO SO HAPPY and proud of my work. Actually, after my hard work of trying to meet him, I didn't think I was going to meet him that night, BUT I DID!










And then I saw Martin Freeman walk down with Amanda Abbington and I took out my drawing of him. When he saw it, his whole face lit up and he said "Oh, WOW! You did this? You did this?! This is so marvelous, thank you!". He had this really bright, warm smile on his face, and he signed my drawing. "Wow! Martin Freeman xx", he wrote. 



His partner, Amanda Abbington was SO NICE and sweet! She kept telling me that I was 'gorgeous' and I told her the same! We took a photo together and then that was pretty much the end of the premiere. :) I'm so excited to see her in Sherlock season 3!

After the premiere ended, I found out that there were some other people who had gotten photos of me and Benedict and Martin! The whole night was just so amazing, and I still can't believe what happened. I met some really amazing people. I'm a big fan of Martin and Benedict's work, and I cannot explain how great it feels to have them sign and comment on my drawings. And also, I was totally fangirling the rest of the night! A few of my dreams came true, and I am so grateful and thankful for that. I will forever remember this night and treasure these moments forever...

Meeting Rob Schneider! (Thank you, Laugh Factory!!)

On the night of Thursday, September 19th, I got the amazing opportunity and honor to go back to the Laugh Factory, not to perform or anything, but I got the chance to meet Rob Schneider! Since I'm too young to attend a show, unfortunately, one of my friends from the comedy club said that I could stop by for a moment and meet the star of the show! I guess Comedy Campers have special privileges... (Heeheehee...)
Anyways, when we were led backstage, I was sooo nervous! I had brought my sketchbook with me with my drawing of him inside for him to sign and I was hoping that he would like it! When I was invited to the Laugh Factory, a few days back, I immediately started drawing him and I got finished a lot sooner than I usually do with my drawings, so I was a bit conscious about it.






When I met him, it was so surreal! He was very smiley and nice to me. :) I had mentioned my whole comedy camp experience to him and he seemed very interested and he even encouraged me to keep going with it! He asked me what the sketchbook was all about and I showed him my drawing. He looked happy about it and that made me proud. It makes me so happy to know that someone is happy with their drawing after working so hard on it! He signed it and we took a photo together and then he had to go because he was supposed to go back onstage.

And I was shaking, in shock, for a while afterwards! Like I said in the paragraph above, it was very, very surreal to even see him in person! I've grown up watching movies he's been in and when you meet someone that you've known about since you were a small child, it's just, wow!

Now I have something new to hang up on my wall! A new souvenir that I will always treasure and have to look at to cheer me up when I'm feeling down. I will forever cherish the signed drawing of mine.

Thank you so much, Laugh Factory of Hollywood... You have changed my live forever!

The World's End Los Angeles Premiere




Hey, everyone... I know I haven't updated in an awful long time, and I'm sorry, but I've been really busy with school... And since I've been trying to keep up with all the TV shows I watch as well as my artwork, I just haven't had too much time. 

BUT... Since I started school, I got to go to The World's End Premiere at the Archlight! With me, I brung along my drawing of Martin Freeman, in high hopes of getting to meet him. After waiting long enough, though, I realized that he wasn't even in America... :( Well, at least he was filming Sherlock, one of my VERY favorite shows in England!

I did get to meet some really awesome people! I met, and got photos with, the amazing Simon Pegg and Nick Frost! They were both so nice and patient with everyone as they were signing different posters and someone even brought the cricket bat from Shaun of The Dead!


Me, Simon Pegg and my friend from school, Anthony.


Me, Nick Frost and my friend from school, Anthony.
It was a really wonderful event to go to and I was fangirling quite a bit after I met Simon and Nick, but I just wish the Martin was there... As John Waston, Bilbo Baggins, and Tim Canterbury, he's just so freaking rad! And he's got a great sense of humor as well!



But maybe someday I could possibly meet him... :)

You can see a better photograph of my drawing here!

And I have YET to see this film, but I definitely will, hopefully soon!!

Back To School... Again. :(

Yes, tomorrow is in fact the big day in which I will start my Junior year of high school. It's truly insane how much time has passed since we moved here, but I am so glad to say that I am having the time of my life here in Hollywood.

This summer I did all sorts of fun stuff. I went to my first Gay Pride festival, I got the honor to meet wonderful people like a member of the legendary Doors, John Densmore, I got the wonderful opportunity to model for an adorable clothing called Heartbreaker fashion, I got to see Joan Jett perform on Jimmy Kimmel... And I also got some awesome clothes and watched lots of Sherlock, Doctor Who, Torchwood... (I watch a lot of different shows, hahaha.) I'll put some links to some videos and some photos from this summer down below:

Gay Pride in WeHo...


It was a ton of fun! It was a bit crazy, but that's what makes things fun!! We got there a bit late because we didn't know if we wanted to go or not, but we did. And I'm very glad we did. :) And I even had a shirt made for it which says, "Dip me in honey and toss me to the lesbians", hahaha!!! In the video, I explain more about it and also I show you all the free stuff I got! :)
Me and Adam Bouska, Photographer for the NoH8 campaign!
Me and Bobby Trendy!!!

Me and my mommy with Adam Bouska!!

Meeting John Densmore...


This was one of the most amazing moments of my life. Not only was it very very nice to meet John Densmore, but it was really awesome to connect with other Doors fans as well and share stories and memories of the band. I almost got to meet Ray Manzarek and Robby Kreiger a while back at the 2011 SSMF, and in 2012's SSMF, I had the amazing honor to actually see them play live with Marilyn Manson, and he SERIOUSLY channeled Jim Morrison PERFECTLY. I cried so much that night... It was just so beautiful, feeling the bands magical energy. I kept feeling very lightheaded and I felt as if I would faint before I met John Densmore. Not only is he an amazing drummer, but he's a really great author. I read his first book, Riders On The Storm and I was thrilled to get The Doors: Unhinged, his second book. I still haven't read it yet because I'm still trying to finish the fifth Harry Potter book (which is very long) and the Hobbit! This video shows my experience, meeting this wonderful person. :)



Heartbreaker Fashion...


When I heard that Heartbreaker Fashion wanted me as a model, I was soooooo incredibly happy. This was my first big modeling gig and I'm just so honored to have modeled for it. Their clothes make me feel so happy and pretty! And I really appreciate that the company makes mod clothing... The 1960's was probably the best decade for fashion and ever since I first laid eyes on the clothes from back then, I became so fascinated and obsessed and my fashion sense is very inspired by it. I got to keep the dresses after I modeled them and they are just the most amazing clothes ever!! They fit very nice and they go very well with my boots. If you want to get some new clothes, buy stuff from Heartbreaker Fashion, truly one of the greatest clothing companies ever. :)

Joan Jett on Jimmy Kimmel!!

Someone told me on Instagram that Joan Jett, the Queen of Rock & Roll, would be doing a show on Jimmy Kimmel Live and I told my mom and she got the tickets immediately. After this show, we became obsessed (again) with this amazing woman. I love Joan so much and she's so nice. I got to meet her about a year or two ago and she signed my Barbie I have of her and she even gave me some of her guitar picks. And also, not only is she nice, but she's a Vegetarian, super hot, and also she's a legend. She was pretty much the first really big female rockstar ever and she really made an impact on this world. She inspires me so much because she didn't care about the 'rules' and she went on and did what she wanted to do. She's an amazing musician who has so much passion and love for what she does, and she never gave up on it even when her life got really rough. I really admire everything about her.

(Ughhhhhhh she's too foxy...)
Us in the audience!!
And I also got some rad new clothes and stuff!!

This is the beautiful, amazing and very very mod LAMB dress that my wonderful mommy got me!! I love it so much...

And she also got me a TARDIS dress, a Dalek dress and a Voldemort wand that lights up!! (AVADA KEDAVRA)     




ANNNDDDD I also got a some new, and very useful art supplies I can use for my drawings. I know that I'm not very good at this, but I would really appreciate it if you took the time to look at some of my artwork. I work so very hard at it and I aspire and hope to be an artist someday. :)


And this summer I got back onto DeviantART!! Please go on there and look at some of the stuff I have on there!!


I'm very sad and actually a bit angry to go back to school. I'm going to be soooooo bombarded with all sorts of school-work and home-work, I don't know if I'll have enough time to do many other things. Sometimes I feel that school makes my creativity go weak and I just hate it. But I need to do well, though because I want to walk across the stage and receive the golden ticket, or diploma, into the world. I've never really received any big trophy, or medal or anything of that nature but my Comedy Camp diploma which I cherish very much and it'll someday be such an honor to receive such a wonderful little piece of paper in my gradation gown. God... I can't fathom the fact that I'm going to be a Junior tomorrow, but I'm going to try my best to make it the best school year possible. 

And also, I'm very proud to say that I am the school's new Art Club President and that's something I'm really looking forward to this year. It's a bit nerve-wrecking because I've never been the leader of anything and being the president of this club will teach me so many new things.

But I bet the first day tomorrow is going to be very confusing for me. I'm going to have to run around all over the place, trying to find my classes. This year, as electives I chose French as a language, and to help me out of my lack of confidence, I also chose Drama to help me out. I just hope I get into them and that the stuff all seven of my classes will teach me won't be too hard.

And I'm going to miss my mommy, too... :(

Well, I suppose that's it for now... I hope you enjoyed reading this post. I know I haven't posted anything on anything in a while and I'm sorry. My computer that my friend gave me is kinda old and it has a hard time with the wifi sometimes.

I hope you all are doing well and if you're going back to school, like me, I wish you lots of luck!

Love you! <3
