Earlier this week I was interviewed by the wonderful Yolanda Shoshana for her radio show, Bruja on Books. Yolanda is known as an erotica author, a spiritualist, and all around bad ass woman. On her show, Bruja on Books, we discuss how to build a great bar and what spirits to have on hand for the holidays, what my favorite cocktails are to drink at home and while I am out, and we cannot forget the best cocktails to serve when you’re feeling frisky. And since it is a show about books, I also give Yolanda my favorite cocktail books for you to enjoy.

A new episode of my radio show, ‪#‎BrujaOnBooks‬ has dropped. This episode I chat with Cari Bee from Busy Bee Blogger. We talk cocktails, love, and seduction. Me to the ow! (Yolanda Shoshana’s Google plus)

Keanu Reeves On Being Snubbed By Hollywood “It Sucks”

Keanu Reeves talks about being snubbed by the big movie companies It Sucks

15 years since the release of The Matrix, Keanu Reeves is still kicking butt on screen. But, main stream movie roles are getting harder and harder to find. What?

While sitting down with INDIEWIRE, Keanu talked about his new movie “John Wick” and being snubbed by the big movie companies after being such a success. FYI “It Sucks”.

You aren’t doing many studio movies these days. “John Wick” was produced independently and acquired later by Lionsgate. Do you have a preference for indies over studio projects?

Not really. The last studio movie I did was “47 Ronin,” but before that it had been a long time – probably “The Day the Earth Stood Still.” So I haven’t been getting many offers from the studios.

Are you OK with that?

No, it sucks, but it’s just the way it is. You can have positive and negative experiences, but what I like about studios are the resources and the worlds that they can create. Obviously, a lot of good filmmakers work on studio movies. Even when I was working on studio movies more often, I was always doing independent movies. So for me, that was just not happening, but I want to keep going, making things, and telling stories. I want to be able to do that – to be an actor, a director, to produce, you know? If we’re going to do a delineation between studio and independent [films], I was always hoping to do both.

I couldn’t believe it when I realized Keanu’s career has been slow in the past decade. I was watching a movie of his on TV the other night and had to look up his filmography. I was shocked that he has not been busier in the past few years. He is one of the few actors I enjoy watching in movies.

Perfect Costumes For Halloween Fun! (Pets too!)

Halloween Costume Maleficent

You have 11 days left before Halloween. I have yet to pick a costume, and if you are a late bloomer like this southern California girl, I have a few Halloween costume choices for you, and your pet!

This is the year of Maleficent. If you have ever wanted to dress up as my favorite Disney character, this is THE year to do it. You can go a little more covered or revealing. Either way, it’s really just about the horns and the icy stares.

minion costume for women

While you all know I like a good pinup look, but really, when it comes to costumes I like to be able to walk around and not freeze. Modesty is highly under-rated. How about a little minion? I love this costume, it is fun and silly yet you can still tell that the person in the costume is a woman without being labeled “sexy minion.”

And a perennial favorite, Sally Nightmare Before Christmas style costume. Sally still reigns on Halloween, and this would be great as a couple’s costume. Just find your Jack and you’re set!

Don’t forget the pets, they look adorable in their pet Halloween costumes too!

If you are dressing up as a minion, why not include the puppy as well! How adorable is this dog minion costume? Especially if yo had a couple of dogs in the house, you could dress them all up and have your own crowd of minions follow you around the house all night!

Spider Dog Costume for Halloween
Or if you spent a little too long watching that YouTube video of the spider dog, why not dress up Fido in his own spider costume? Terrify your friends in a fun way of course.

No matter what you dress up as for Halloween, we want to see your costumes!  Send them our way on Instagram and Twitter!
