Bok Bok Be Gok! Cheeseburger Date #20
Shots of what? Find out below.. (John McCormick & I) I was all too excited when John Mccormick, hairstylist to the stars, & Erin Short of The Hair Nerds, assembled a Post ISSE Hair Show Cheeseburger Date at Hamburger Mary’s in Long Beach. Knowing there would be a handful of top industry peeps at this date, I invited Celeste to join me. Since she is almost finished with...
Oink Oink! - Cheeseburger Date #19
It’s the afternoon before I head over to The Oinkster in Eagle Rock. My client Lori Paul who knows tons about great food, highly recommended this place. I decided to scope it out on Yelp and found over 2000 reviews! Whoa! Everyone loves it including Guy Fieri of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. It claims to be slow fast food made with quality ingredients. I wonder if they will hand me a pig...
Autograph & a ... Cheeseburger Date #18
The Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood, CA boasts “legendary hamburgers”. To me that is a pretty tall description and wanted to see if it held true. My company was Celeste, one of my favorite people. She is a smart, beautiful, 18 years old and a Hollywood local. I thought her perspective would be a nice addition. We spent the morning on a Starline Tour Bus checking out movie star homes...
Jones'n for Cheeseburger Date #17
So I visited the most awesome people in Colorado over X-mas break, The Jones. Todd’s parents let me slump around their home for a week while I decompressed from 2012. A Cheeseburger Date was necessary. I wondered if Connie & Doug could hang with my habit. I googled “best cheeseburger in Colorado”. Crave Real Burgers was at the top of the list and they even won the 2012...
Went to GO Burger, again. Cheeseburger Date #16
About 4 months ago I was determined to have a Cheeseburger Date even though I was sick with the flu. So to GO Burger I went. I was unimpressed and the review was not so great & recently I realized I should give them a fair shake and try them again while I was not sick. The incredibly powerful, sweet & hungry Shannon Bevins, coincidently also my assistant at p!ay hair lounge braved the...
Lucky #SIX. Cheeseburger Date #15
I was surprised to find chicken & waffles on the menu at The Six. Tempting, but I was there for the Cheeseburger of course! I’d read about it in AAA’s WestWays Magazine. Yes, I read every issue in hopes to find some new CA place that might be worth trying & The Six happened to be local & the article bragged about the burger. I headed over for a very late lunch at...
Yeah, so what. I threw out my scale! I feel liberated. Clothes are getting looser, # was stuck. Clearly my scale was broken. & now it has a new home… in the GAR-BAAAGGGE. ;)

B-day Burger! Cheeseburger Date #14
I was invited to show some 2012 Emmy Red Carpet hair on KTLA Channel 5 Sunday, Sept 23rd. I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to finally see why 25 Degrees at The Roosevelt Hotel was making all of the top Burgers in LA lists. Along with me were p!ay stylist Jessica & our models/friends: Celeste, Kaitlin & Taylor. Don’t let the title “model” fool you,...
Found this in Gelsons Bakery! Whoa!
when your workout pants won’t stay up. :) #GoodProbs2Have & also…. THIS Cheeseburger!
Hole in the Wall Burger- Cheeseburger Date #13
Hole in the Wall, still. As I planned my 13th Cheeseburger Date I realized that I kept fantasizing about my 1st. Could it be like your first kiss? You remember it as amazing, however it really was a bit disgusting. Or was Hole in the Wall Burger the BEST Cheeseburger yet? I decided to head back to Hole in the Wall for another pretzel bunned bacon Cheeseburger to see if the memory was spot...
Hmmm. Next Cheeseburger Date I'll have to do... →
Double Trouble- Cheeseburger Date #12
When my twin friends, Monica & Nicole from Portland were coming to visit, I knew it was a great chance to hit up 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica for shopping & Hillstone for a much hyped Cheeseburger! Two of my clients from p!ay hair lounge, Anne & Lori, highly recommended Hillstone. As we approached the restaurant, I was enamored by the architecture. The exterior was all...
Celebrities told "Eat a Cheeseburger!"
Monday August 27- 175lbs (-15lbs)
"Tiny" fat cat, loses weight! →
Cheeseburger Kabab..What??!!- Cheeseburger Date...
I knew I wanted to throw a wildcard into my Cheeseburger Dates & Tasty Burger “The Shish Kabab House” presented itself while I was jaunting around NoHo (North Hollywood) the other day. Lunch was on the agenda and Yelp reviews were high, so Tasty Burger it was. The name reminded me of Fosters Freeze or Tasti-Delight, so I figured it had to be good. Wasn’t quite sure if my Cheeseburger...
Monday August 20- 175lbs (-15lbs) Feels good!
Bootleg Cheeseburgers - Cheeseburger Date #10
Three people have suggested I eat at Prohibition Burgers & Beer, in the last week. I’m having serious Cheeseburger withdrawals since it has been almost 10 days since my last Cheeseburger Date- “The Cheeseburger Freestyle Event” Being only 7 minutes from my house, Prohibition is dangerously close. At first glance at the menu I’m a bit nervous. It is quite festive. The Frank...
Monday August 13- 177lbs (-13lbs) YEAH!
I started using a T-Zone Vibration machine at Yin Yang Acupuncture a month ago. It is probably one of the most minimal work, workouts I’ve ever done. When I started out I was skeptical, but guess what? It is increasing my lean muscle mass. I am getting toned under my layer of fat. I actually am getting a hard “core”, now just need to lose the inner tube that’s south of...
The Cheeseburger Freestyle Event- Cheeseburger...
I’ve got Olympic fever! I’ve surprisingly stepped away from my TV & the Olympics tonight to be in Granada Hills, California at Friday Food Fest. It is the most fantastic happening! About 25 food trucks pull up every Friday night from 5-10p.m. & make some serious food for a hungry crowd of side walkers. I’m picking two top burger trucks to be in my Cheeseburger Freestyle...
Friday August 3- 181lbs (-9lbs) :( My four day road trip bliss threw 3 pounds...
If I was meant to eat lettuce, I would have been born a rabbit! :) brig
EUREKA! - Cheeseburger Date #8
I think it should be mandatory for all Californians to road trip the CA coast once every two years. I FINALLY after 36 years, got to check out Big Sur. Could it really be all that everyone always says? Um yeah. Wow! I was all over Cali this weekend- Santa Clara for California Extreme, a classic arcade game convention. I pb’d (personal best) in Ms.Pacman- 107,000 & got in the top...
Sunday July 29- 178lbs (-12lbs) No down, no up.
Their clothes are available up to a Size 16! I think this concept is so cool, but even cooler that they recognize the world doesn’t stop at a size L. :)
A Fuller Figured Mila Kunis?!
I think it is hilarious that “they” are calling Mila Kunis “fuller figured”. How? Where? She looks normal to me. Gotta LOVE Hollywood…. What do you think??
Bun in the Oven! -Cheeseburger Date #7
When I heard that smashburger was opening nearby, I freaked out! When Todd & I visit his parents in Colorado we go directly from the airport to smashburger. There isn’t even a question of “if” we are hungry. It is automatic. It is delicious & I always eat way way way too much. After struggling to finish my 6th Cheeseburger Date, I knew some prep was in order for me to successfully...
Sunday July 22- 178lbs (-12lbs) I’m so excited to be OUT of the 180s!!
Here’s a solution to get my bikini body NOW! I had the HUGE pleasure of working with (I assisted the hairstylist) Joanne Gair 17 years ago on the Nine Inch Nails video for A Perfect Drug. She is also the mastermind behind all the body painted swimsuits you probably have seen in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, but I prefer this shot!! I love her lavender hair color too!
Can this be true?
Clipped from the August issue of Glamour Magazine- I think men would rather date any confident woman that an insecure one, period. :)
Ridiculously Super Cool!
I funded LUMI Inkodye on Kickstarter! I can’t wait to get my kit in September & start creating cool tops, etc! You know I am gonna do something cool with a Cheeseburger or 5! I love the thought that regardless of my size, I can easily create something unique & fantastic to wear! I’m counting down to September & hopefully my weight will too! Plumply yours, :0 brig
Holy Cow! Cheeseburger Date #6
Where: Slater’s 50/50 which is 66 miles away Why: A server at another restaurant told me it was her favorite! What: The 50/50- The burger patty is half ground beef/half ground bacon. I pull into the parking lot and it looks much more subdued that I expected. Looks like a nice Mexican restaurant. I shrug when I see valet parking until I realize there are no other options and it’s...
Sunday July 15- 180lbs (-10lbs) 25% of my goal reached! Makes it sound so much...
Male Diet Sabotage.
Any of you frustrated that guys can just announce that they are gonna lose weight and like 5 seconds later they do?! Arrrgghhhh. When I started this blog about 5 weeks ago, my boyfriend Todd told me he was gonna cut back too. Admitting he also could spare to lose a few pounds. The thoughts in my head went like this- “Oh great, I inspired him.” “Wait, oh no!” “I...
Does she VIBRATE? Me vs Jessica Simpson
So now since Weight Watchers, or “Whale Watchers” as my friend Karen likes to call it, allegedly cut a $4,000,000 deal with Ms. Simpson she is appearing as a victim of her “SURPLUS SIZE” on the cover of STAR Magazine. Yes, the article refers to her as surplus sized. Is she a fricken Rhinoceros? I cant get enough of this ‘garrrr-bajje’ (garbage). At...
