Giveaway: Win a Set of Old Factory Candles!

I'm a candle lover just like pretty much everyone, ever. You probably love them, too. That's why I'm excited to give one lucky reader a set of three candles from Old Factory Candles!

I recently had the opportunity to test these candles out. With sets including Spa Day, Vacation, and 50 Shades it was hard to choose my set but I went with Coffee Shop, consisting of Coffee Bean, Hazelnut, and Chai Tea fragrances.

I was pleasantly surprised how much they smell like their namesakes. Because the scents complement each other I like burning all three candles at the same time. Also, the 2oz. jars don't produce overpowering scents so burning all three created a stronger fragrance and was perfect for me. I will say, if you like a strong candle that fills the entire house, these may not be right for you. However, if your style is more subtle, you'll love these.

Fun facts: Old Factory Candles are sold exclusively on Amazon and made in the USA with natural soy wax, self-trimming wicks, and premium fragrance oils. And they burn for 20 hours. Right now they're on sale for $25 so if you don't win the giveaway you need to jump on that!

You're turn to try Old Factory Candles for yourself. One winner will be selected and random and notified on Thursday, March 12. Sorry, contest only open to US residents. Good luck!

Back From an Unexpected Hiatus

Hi! Remember me? It's been far too long. These last four months have been a little crazy. I started a new job in October and quit that job this week. My grandma was diagnosed with cancer Thanksgiving day and passed New Year's Eve. I let go of friendships that weren't positive and realized how many great people I do have in my life. Got rear-ended on the freeway. Interviewed the judges of The Voice and went to a taping of the Knockout Rounds. Talk about ups and downs!
The biggest thing I've realized  is life is far too short to be unhappy. Happiness is everything. Instead of doing what "I'm supposed to do" I'm taking the time to explore what I want to do. And guess what? I don't know what path is right for me just yet. But that's OK because I'm going to do some soul searching until I decide how I want to live my life.

It's probably going to take a little time for me to get back into the swing of blogging, and I may not get back to a daily routine, but I'm going to make an effort.

On the Sets of The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, Mike & Molly, and Mom

An Evening with Chuck Lorre Productions
Last week I had the amazing opportunity to visit Warner Bros. and the sets of Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, Mom, and Mike & Molly. And if being there wasn't awesome enough, I also got to be in the presence of all of the stars and geniuses behind the shows!
The night started with a panel where I sat a few mere yards from Ashton Kutcher, Jim Parsons, Melissa McCarthy and so many more talented actors and writers. Unreal! BTW, tune into the finale of Men if you're a fan. It was teased that big surprises are in store. *cough* an original cast member's return *cough*

After the Q&A we all went over to the set of Two and a Half Men where we were able to conduct interviews, grab a drink, indulge in delish food, and wander on to all of the other sets for a visit.

Warner Bros. is the BEST! I'm so fortunate to get invites from them. The studio always puts on a great event.

72nd Annual Golden Globes

Last night I had the extreme pleasure of covering the 72nd Annual Golden Globes NBC After Party (a HUGE thank you to NBC!). So many stars!!

At a red carpet of this magnitude the press is crazy! Only a really small amount of media were able to score interviews, and taking pictures was hard, but I managed to get quite a few. Here are some of my best shots.

Katherine Heigl of State of Affairs

Eddie Redmayne (and his Golden Globe for Best Actor!) of The Theory of Everything

Jamie Dornan of 50 Shades of Grey and wife

Nene Leeks of The Real Housewives of Atlanta

Benjamin Stockholm of About a Boy

My 2014 Travels

I started 2014 by getting laid off in January. That turned into the best thing to happen to me! Instead of stressing about a job I hated and jumping into a new role right away, I took plenty of time to enjoy life and go on a bunch of vacations. Here are the places I saw this year:

On the Set of Revolution

Touring South Fork Ranch

The Bahamas beaches

St. Thomas View

Grand Turk waters

Puerto Rico shore

Miami Beach cocktail

Central Park Boathouse

Philadelphia City Hall and Love Park

San Francisco skyline

Jackson Square in Fall

Boston skyline from above

Then I finally got a job. And to my surprise, they sent me to Boston for my first week!

One year, 12 destinations. Pretty magical. I'd say my wanderlust was fulfilled in 2014. So far I have a trip to Seattle planned for next summer, but who knows what trip 2015 has in store. Hopefully lots of exciting adventures!!
