Friday is International Peace Day so I made this button! Available in my Zazzle shop, Black Cat Drawings (see link under image).
I am selling this magazine set in my eBay shop…getting ready to move!
I was all excited to see Angels in my Hair author Lorna Byrne! She is from Ireland and rarely comes to the US. In fact, it was her first trip farther inland than NYC and Boston. I had tickets for her event in Phoenix, but American Airlines had problems and canceled my flight 😦 Because American doesn’t have as many flights as United or Southwest, the next flight they could offer me was 6 hours later! I would have missed half the event 😦 So I got a refund and stayed home.
I highly recommend Lorna Byrne’s first book, Angels in my Hair, an autobiographical look at her life in northern Ireland. It explains how she clearly sees angels. And how they nudge people to be helpful and kind to others.
Anthony Bourdain: People Magazine Cover
Anthony Bourdain is on a double-suicide cover along with purse designer Kate Spade in the June 25, 2018, issue of People magazine. If you miss it on newsstands, you can order it for the Kindle from Amazon.com. I really loved Anthony Bourdain! Especially after reading his book, Kitchen Confidential. He made being a chef sound daring and fun! This was before Top Chef was on TV. I think he started the trend of chefs being cool and edgy.
See my previous post about the last episodes of Anthony’s travel show, Parts Unknown, airing on CNN (if you don’t get cable, you can buy the episodes on the Amazon Fire stick).
What is odd about the Anthony Bourdain suicide is that he was in the middle of filming an episode and he had a lot of people around him! The crew was there. And his best friend, chef Eric Ripert (famous for his French cooking at Le Bournadin – follow him on Instagram), was staying at the same small hotel. He was actually waiting for him to come down for breakfast (he hadn’t made it to the dinner they’d planned on the night before, either). When he didn’t show, he asked the hotel staff to open his room and found him dead. 😦
His on-off girlfriend, Italian actress Asia Argento, is friends with Rose McGowen (both have gone public with their abuse at the hands of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein). Rose told reporters that Anthony had reached out to a medical professional for help with depression, but he didn’t follow through with the recommended treatment (likely counseling and anti-depressants). 😦
If you want to see who Anthony Bourdain’s girlfriend is, she is in his Parts Unknown episode about Rome in Season 8. This is how they met!

I was reading the DailyMailOnline, my favorite news and gossip website (out of Britain), and I came across 2 articles about Earth Angels!
Earth Angels are what angel author Doreen Virtue calls people who are part human and part angel. I have written about this subject myself! See link below.
FREEBIE: Download and print my quiz: angel_quiz

My New Zazzle Shop: Black Cat Drawings
I saw a kid wearing a shirt like this at the David Blaine Live show 😉 It’s so cool! I just opened a Zazzle shop called BlackCatDrawings. Zazzle.com is like CafePress.com where you can design T-shirts and mugs for people to buy. This is my very first T-shirt I designed!
Got Magic Shirts
You just order this T-shirt in the size you want and Zazzle makes the shirt and sends it to you. To be honest, the prices aren’t super great. It’s not going to be as cheap as Walmart! As the designer/artist, I only get about $2 – $3 of the T-shirt sale. Most of my items will feature my cute cartoon art. Coming soon: a magic 8-ball design.

I read Hay House Tarot card reader/creator Radleigh Valentine’s new book, “How to Be Your Own Genie: Manifesting the Magical Life You Were Born to Live.”
This is a sponsored post, meaning if you follow this link and buy the new Radleigh Valentine book on the Hay House website, I get a little money! I didn’t get the book for free, so I could use the money 😉
The book is a fun read, great as a gift or to flip through when you need a little pick me up! If you don’t know who Radleigh is, he’s best friends with Doreen Virtue! So some of the info is the same as the “old” Doreen Virtue, like “Don’t let anything dull your sparkle.” He is super flamboyant and eccentric, like a Broadway or Vegas showman. He always wears a very sparkly suit coat and sometimes sparkly shoes to match! It’s funny because I live in Vegas now and I was walking through the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood and saw suits like the ones he wears – very sparkly with giant rhinestones – and I thought, maybe this is where Radleigh buys his outfits? Haha.
I LOVE writing notes, so I took 4 whole pages of notes on this book! I think that is way to looooong for this blog post, so I typed them up as a pdf file you can download and read or print. There is lots of good information in the book, but most of it you’ve heard before.
I hadn’t known much about Radleigh Valentine:
- grew up gay in The South (not easy)
- is part Cherokee Indian (very cool – I wish I was part Native American!)
- after college, worked as a boring accountant
- started doing Tarot card readings and loved it
- looked up the Hay House authors and met Doreen Virtue at a live event
- started working as a helper to Doreen and became best friends
He decided he wanted to be a Hay House author, too, and voila! Here he is! Radleigh is very active on social media, especially Facebook Live, if you want to follow him.
Here’s the table of contents from his book, “How to Be Your Own Genie”:
At first glance, I thought Radleigh’s book would be about Genies, which is a specific realm that Doreen Virtue described in her Realm Reader course. Genies are a type of spiritual person who lives in or loves the desert! They are associated with flowing, gauzy outfits in the colors of the sunset, precious gemstones and a sunny disposition! They have lots of friends and are great networkers. Being a Genie, they are great at making money! But Radleigh doesn’t talk about this sort of Genie in his book. (I am working on writing about Genies and other spiritual types of people.) Instead, Radleigh says each of us has magical powers, like a Genie. He is talking about using positive energy to bring into your life what you want.
Radleigh Valentine believes in:
- getting signs from angels like feathers or the number 444 (I always see 111)
- feng shui (de-cluttering and organizing your house)
- choosing a magical word or song to keep your spirits up (Mine is “Fame.”)
- asking your body what it wants to be healthy*
- automatic writing
- getting rid of Drama Queens in your life (he calls them Drama Masters)
- not dwelling on your past or having regrets
- using happy thoughts/positive emotions to attract good things
* I did this and it worked! Sit down with pen and paper and ask your body what it needs to be healthy. Do “automatic writing” which means just keep writing down whatever comes up. My body said it wants a gentle energy. I was expecting something specific, like a meal plan! This makes sense, though, as I’m very sensitive to energy. Right now, I’m living in Vegas and it’s VERY LOUD here. So, I can see why this came up as an issue for my body. I spend a lot of time here trying to relax and loosen up my tight muscles –> joint pain.
Want to buy this book? It’s available as both an ebook (for the Kindle and other devices) and a paperback. See it on the Hay House website here.
