Can't wait for a Delicious Good Time!
I'm so excited to be a part of the 1st annual LA Street Food Fest happening on Saturday, February 13th at the LA Center Studios in downtown LA! What a way to celebrate Valentine's Eve! This brilliant idea was stormed up by Sonja Rasula (founder of Unique LA & City-Labs) and Shawna Dawson (founder of Sauce LA). Food trucks, street food, DIY valentine cards, DJs, beer gardens, Oh! Snap V-day theme photo booth and more! WHAT A FABULOUS PLACE FOR FOODIES TO MINGLE and meet a Valentine!

The cherry on top of all this delicious food, will be the Pop-Up Unique LA mini-market! Shop for yourself and your valentine, while supporting local designers + artists. I will be there selling my candy-like jewelry and hairpins, along with Spicy Brown! They have yummy tees, accessories and the famous Tofu Robot!

My Happy Motto

Life is Short. EAT Dessert First! Quote from Jacques Torres.
This is a happy motto I like to live by :) I LOVE dessert! Cupcakes, cookies, bars ... oh my! Do you get giddy when you see a counter filled with beautiful desserts? I do! If I see a yummy delight, I have to taste it right away ~ while waiting for my regular food. De-lish!

The fun part (besides eating them) is the decorations! Flowers, dots, colors ... the creativity is limitless! My eyes go boggly while my head is spinning with ideas for my candy-like jewelry collections!

decorations ~ the flowers are cute!

Welcome to LeeLee's Wonderland!

As a young girl I seemed to be fascinated with color, beads, art and fashion. It's no wonder that I turned my love into a career! So how did it all begin? At an early age I took a variety of art classes and started beading for fun. I remember going to flea markets with my mom, shopping for vintage jewelry and accessories. I used to break apart things and re-create my own jewelry. So when all was said and done, I am doing what I've always loved. So what inspires ME? Culture, art, fashion, and architecture are just a few of my inspirations. One of my favorite things to do is exploring my city, Los Angeles. I enjoy spending time with loved ones, going to the latest gallery and music events, the California sun.....and of course, my toy poodle Richy!
