lala land


so its no secret I am utterly beyond obsessed with the entertainment world...movies, tv, hollywood etc. growing up i put on plays constantly. i was always making tv shows, variety shows or dance shows in my garage with my younger sister. of course i was always in charge...i even made my dad film them....i wanted to be an actress so badly....but you know how that goes.

so of course i love award season! and if you don't know its right around the corner...starting off on sunday with the golden globes! however i am particularly excited for The Oscars this year because one of my favorite actors/writers is hosting...the one & only

Seth McFarland

he is one talented man & is exactly what the Oscars need to spruce up the show....the oscars are pretty big around my house & a few years ago I threw an aaamazing oscar party....we really went all out with decorations --- i wanted my guests to feel like they were the celebs going to an after Oscar party...take a look

Red Carpet leading into my house along with a VIP sign out front of our walkway

Inside house decorations - gold, streamers, stars, sparkle, VIP lounge duh

Oscar awards & reserved seating - obvi - its the oscars duh

And the winner is....

Festive table which was eventually filled with tons of food

Champagne served on a fancy tray with rasberries...only the best for celebs.

& it was hilarious because my sister hid outside in the bushes waiting for my friends to arrive so she could take pictures of them & be paparazzi...it was a great night.

 so yesterday they announced the nominees for this year (via The Wall Street Journal) take a look ----

ok ok enough about hollywood & the oscars today I have a cool girl for you all to meet who is currently living in LA the land of the stars....she has a fun lifestyle blog documenting her life & adventures in LA....a hello kitty, Britney Spears lover - this is a girl after my own heart...not to mention  she is one smart cookie....so without further ado meet

Hi there! I'm Nicole, and I'm the girl behind the blog Treasure Tromp. My blog started as a way to document my attempts at finding life's hidden treasures ... and as a way to distract myself from my PhD program in psychology.

 When I'm not studying or working on program evaluations, I like to hike and camp around southern California, obsess over hedgehogs, make a mess in the kitchen and work on my photography. Come stop by my blog to say hello - I'm looking forward to meeting you!

If it was your last day on earth what would you do: 
If it were my last day on earth I would indulge in some of the finer things in life, like a delicious sushi dinner (and lunch?) with a top notch bottle of wine. I would also make sure all my loved ones knew exactly how much they mean to me. And of course I'd make sure to spend the entire day with my manfriend.
Whats the story behind your blog name: 
I came up with the name Treasure Tromp while I was sitting in a hotel in Vancouver during last spring in 2012. After a couple of drinks, my boyfriend and I were throwing around a couple of ideas of the name. I knew immediately that I wanted 'treasure' to be included (I have always had a complete obsession with findings little treasures) but it took a while to come up with the rest. After a while, I realized that while I love treasure hunting, I am not always the most graceful when I do - I sort of tromp around. And then Treasure Tromp was born.
On thing we don't know about you but you should: I've got pretty flexible shoulders and can jump rope with my arms.

That party looks like it was a blast! Sadly, the only movie listed that I even saw was Brave - which was adoable. Les Mis, Lincoln and Silver Linings are on on my list, I just haven't got around to it yet.
