A few weeks ago (yes I'm that behind) I was invited to 'live tweet' at the LA Food Fest Summer Tasting Event at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. What that means is…I got to tweet and to display others tweets all on the giant screen at the Rose Bowl, talk about the ultimate Twitter power!
The event itself was fabulous, we drank too much, ate too much, talked too much, even got to shop, and all together had a wonderful time.
Above is an excitable little i-phone video shot after a few tequila "tastings" (it's not been edited..and it's i-phone quality) and below is a photo story of the fabulous event (all photo's are mine unless otherwise noted)

We started of the festivities with yummy cocktails from Sailor Jerry Rum…I love a Dark and Stormy.
After throwing down some rum Mr Style, Caroline and I headed over to the Oh Snap Photo stage for some fun and games (click to make it larger – the expression on Mr. Style's face is priceless!) – Photo – Oh Snap!
Yep…more cocktails…this time from Camarena Tequila Bar
Yummy, scrummy cupcakes from Cupcakes A -Go-Go
What I Wore: Dress: Victoria's Secret, Hat: Forever 21, Necklace: Handmade, Socks: We Love Colors, Sandals: Courtesy of Seychelles, Apple Pie Purse: Antoni+Alison.
My Antoni+Alison Apple Pie Purse seemed appropriate…
Of course I was there to cover the fashion not just the food and drinks…and Unique LA had an amazing mini marketplace set up.
Blood is the New Black were there selling their fabulous t-shirts and sundries in their fancy truck.
Eva Franco dresses..modern femininity at it's best.
The beautiful Eva Franco herself.
I was gifted this awesome woodgrain t-shirt from Sub_Urban Riot (and yes I was barefoot at this stage!)
I fell hard for this owl purse from My Mishion…
A touch more tequila from Tequila 55 and Tequila Capaz and then off to the press box

My favourite food of the night…from Starry Kitchen, I decided to proclaim my love on the jumbo screen, power crazy? Me?
