Help Fund Kill Me, Deadly – A Film Noir Comedy with Kirsten Vangsness

If you love checking out some of the unique and creative projects on Kickstarter as much as I do, you’ll love this fun project with Kirsten Vangsness (Penelope Garcia from Criminal Minds). It’s called Kill Me, Deadly, a film noir comedy (which I will admit I had no idea what film noir comedy was before I saw the kickstarter project :D). It looks like a pretty cool project, and how could it not be with Kirsten Vangness and Joe Mantegna from Criminal Minds, as well as many others… The kickstarter project is currently almost half-way funded and it wraps up on July 1st.  I am personally counting down the days to July 1st since that is the day I launch my brand new jewelry line, and I am sure the team behind Kill Me, Deadly is counting down the days as well to see if their project gets fully funded.

The Celebrity Gift Lounge at The 3rd Annual Thirst Gala

I just got back from attending the 3rd Annual Thirst Gala in LA and my sister and I had such a blast!  Here are some photos of the event, from prep through after-party.
