Lion King on Broadway - 27th Birthday Celebration

The weekend before Thanksgiving my guy surprised me with the best birthday gift ever... Tickets to see Lion King on Broadway! I have been dying to see this show ever since it hit broadway, many years ago, so you can imagine, I was beyond excited! First birthday together and he did good, really good!!! Check out my Lion King appropriate MICHAEL KORS zebra print sequin dress above (click here for details)... Not like I ever needed a reason to wear sequins...

I wasn't allowed to take pictures during the show...which is usually something I would ignore, but there was no way I was risking missing all the action. So with that said, all photos from hear on out are borrowed from broadway.com 

The show was truly breathtaking; from the costumes...

to the characters...
to the opening scene, which I like to recreate at random moments (almost missed due to traffic on 45th street, thank God we didn't).
The way the costume design was able to create life like safari animals was the best use of imagination I have seen with my own two eyes.
But they didn't do it alone...
The preformers played a huge roll in making the animals come to life! 
It truly was an amazing experience, one that I hope you all get to enjoy one day if you have not already. I heard a rumor that the show may be leaving broadway soon, something to keep in mind when making you Santa Wish List this year. 

Next show on my must see list.... WICKED!!!  Santa, can you hear me?

Come fly with me...

These days I seem to spend more time up in the clouds than down on the ground and I don't mind it one bit. I love traveling, mainly because I love adding to my ever growing sky miles collection... I'm saving up for a few exotics trips in 2012. Honesty I just consider myself blessed to be able to not only love what I do for a living but to be able to travel the country and sometimes even out of the country all while getting paid to do so. I'm planing to enjoy this ride as long as I can. Sweet dreams from Hollywood!

Even Wonder Woman Needs a Break...

It has been quite a while since I have set down and put together a blog post. There are many reasons as to why... Travel, work load, new relationships, old relationships, etc. however I despise when people say "I just don't have time", so I'm not going to say that. I am a firm believer that we all have the time to do the things we want to do, it's just a matter of how we choose to spend it. These last few months rather I'm just going to say I needed a break, a chance to regroup, refocus, and reenergize. I like to think I can do it all.. Travel the world, live a balanced life, etc. and you know what, I can! Even Wonder Woman needs a break once in a while and then it's back to saving the world, one bad guy at a time. With that said, I am back to tending to Fairytale Wishes and Dreams. Blogging makes me happy and gives me a creative outlet which so many of us desperately need. Although what I do on a daily basis is very creative it can also be stressful but with blogging it's all about what I want to do, what I want to discuss, and what I want to share. So stay turned there are many more wishes and dreams that I would love to share with you all. Thanks for sticking around.

Long Weekend Getaway!


With Memorial Day coming up I can't help but think I should be planning a little getaway to some far away (undisclosed) location.  With a nice four day weekend from work, it seems like the perfect time! I have been traveling so much the last three months for work you would think the last thing on my mind would be to travel again... but its the exact opposite. The more I travel for work, the more I desire to travel somewhere fun and exciting, and yes, far, far, away... 


Now I just have to decide where to go for 4-5 days... any ideas?

The Kennedy's - Beyond Excited!!!

 






I am beyond excited for the mini series The Kennedy's... I grew up being obsessed with their family and the Kennedy Administration, probably because my mom was as well. I have read so many books that relate to JFK & Jackie, both fact and fiction and I can't wait to see how this mini serious compares.  Especially since it is said to be very close to the truth.  So much so that the Kennedy family tried to ban it from ever hitting the air.  Well unfortunately for them and fortunate for us, it aired tonight, the first two of 8 episodes, on Reelz Channel. If you missed it, don't worry the first two will air again tomorrow night at 8pm, then get ready for #3, its airs Tuesday! 

On another note is Katie Holmes stunning. She completely embodies Jackie Kennedy and Greg Kinnear is the spitting image of JFK. Hats off to the casting team,  job well done!

Sunday Morning Blooms...


Its no surprise, I love Sunday's. The smell of fresh flowers from the market, pretty girls dressed in their Sunday best, strolls in the park, the possibilities are endless. Today is the first Sunday of April, which excites me in so many ways.  The sun is out shinning and Spring has arrived, which means the flowers are a bloom and the pastels are a plenty.  Here's to a perfect spring Sunday, however you plan to spend it. 


Be sure to stop buy tomorrow, I have a fun interactive post planned for all of you

Its been awhile....


Hello my lovely readers, I hope I haven't lost too many of you! I know it's been quite awhile since my last post, but I must say the world of Fallon has been a crazy one.  I have been quite busy since we last spoke.  Lets see, I learned how to make French macarons, flew a teeny tiny little plan over Hartford, CT, dropped on my little pup in San Francisco before heading to La La Land and Orange County... next stop is DC.  So as you can see life has been busy.  Fun and exciting, but busy nonetheless.  But I can tell you this while it has been awhile, I'm back and have lots to share, so hopefully at least a few of you have stuck around. 

Speaking of "awhile".... I sure has been awhile since I have taken my bicycle out for a ride and with the nice sunshine ad mild weather we are having in NYC today I think I might have to show him some love today! I can't wait for Spring to officially be here, when every day is perfect and I can ride my bicycle all weekend long!

J.Crew... About A Shoe









My BFF and I just so happen to be planning a trip to Italy this year, were thinking September... (more on that later), which is why when I came across this video I got even more excited about planning my trip.  Now if only I could get a visit to the J.Crew shoe factory on my itinerary, I would be set. I so want to be Jenna when I grow up.  sigh... watch the video below and you'll understand.

Dreaming of foggy mornings...


Growing up in Northern California, fog was something we experienced quite often.  I remember when I was little and we would make the 4hr drive down to my Grandma's and there would be times when we couldn't even see the hood of the car, the fog was so thick.  It was scary & exciting all at the same time.  There is something about fog that is so mysterious and romantic.  Fog can make you feel like you stepped into a 1930's mystery set in London on a raining night.  In my opinion, foggy nights are what dreams are made of & foggy mornings are the icing on the cake.

Green With Envy - Golden Globes 2011


Another fashion trend that did not go unnoticed on the red carpet tonight was the fabulous ladies making those in their path "Green with Envy". Angelina Jolie-Pitt wearing Atelier Versace (I have to say, I am really loving this long sleeve trend on the red carpet as well);  Elisabeth Moss wearing Donna Karen; Mila Kunis wearing Vera Wang;  Catherine Zeta Jones wearing Monique Lhuillier.

All About Neutral's - Golden Globe Fashion 2011


I have to admit that when it comes to awards shows, the Golden Globes are kind of a bore for me.  I watched for all of five minutes, before I had to switched to Desperate Housewives for a little Sunday night entertainment.  However, I have always been and will always be a fan of the red carpet! 

There were for sure a few stand out trends for the night "Lady in Red", "Green With Envy",  "Sexy in Black" but my favorite had to be the lovely ladies that were "All About Neutral"! My favorite of the night was Anne Hathaway wearing Armani... sleeves, backless and sparkles!  Need I say more.... She looked absolutely stunning.  

Sandra Bullock looked age appropriate, wearing Jenny Packham.  Lea Michele seems to have found a silhouette & designer that works for her,  wearing Oscar de la Renta. Jennifer Lopez, looked like a modern day princess, wearing Zuhair Murad.  Dianna Agron had a slight Old Hollywood  glam feel, wearing J. Mendel.  Scarlett Johansson wearing Elie Saab.  Not what you would typically expect but it works in her favor.  Then there was Emma Stone wearing Calvin Klein rocking a very understated look, the true definition of "simple chic". 

What was your favorite trend of the night?

Truly Inspiring! " A digital park bench"...


After watching this 10min mini documentary on"A Visual Life" on The Sartorialist, I was in complete aww! This is the most inspiring video I have watched in a long time! I assume you are all familiar with The Sartorialist, but if not, even more the reason to watch this mini film as you will soon never forget. Scott Schuman is a true visionary and we as in the blog world and fashion world alike are lucky to have him.  He compares his blog to "a digital park bench" from which you can visit daily and people watch, no matter where you are in the world.  For anyone who is creative and especially for anyone who is trying to create their own "digital park bench", "A Visual Life" is a must see.  Do yourself a favor and take 10mins out of your day and get inspired! I promise, its worth it! 


Now I just need to figure out how I can get on The Sartorialist?  A girl can dream, right?!... If like me you dream of being approached by Scott one day and not because he needs you to move out of his shot, then read below.  It just might land you a spot on The Sartorialist one day, you never know. ;)
