@PolarGlobal #Balance #MustHave

I was jelly of #fitbit since they had a matching scale to go with the activity tracker, but now, NOT NO MORE!

Polar Global has designed a scale to sync with my activity tracker and blah blah blah…

I haven’t weighed myself in a while and I’d love to get this scale to get my fitness regimen going again. It’s white and pretty too. :P

@SabanTheatre #FrankSinatra #100thTribute

Bear got me the most amazing tickets to the Frank Sinatra Tribute Concert performed by Frank Sinatra Jr. at the Saban Theatre!!!

I got it for my birthday and at first I didn’t want it as my birthday gift but I realized that I enjoy gifts that keep on giving. Or shall I say time released. :P

He got the best seats and through each song I teared and got goosebumps all over my skin. It was such a memorable experience and I wish Tyler had been with us. Although there were no kids at the concert, I want to expose Tyler to as much great music when I can.

I will never forget this moment and will cherish it until I die.

I really wish I got to see Frank Sinatra perform before he died.

Now I need to go see Tony Bennett before he croaks. :P

@TheBroad

Our date for the tour finally came around and we got to experience the unforgettable exhibits at The Broad Museum!!! This museum was exceptional and I suggest everyone to go visit The Broad if you can get tickets.

We were also able to get a peek into the Infinity Room (for ONLY 45 seconds!!!!) but well worth the short amount of time! The room was spectacular and super visually appealing. I didn’t want to leave!

#ChampagneTasting #Reims, France

The most amazing structures are in France and the emotions I felt are so unspeakable. I am so happy to have been a part of this trip and to see and understand a different culture unknown to me has opened my eyes! Every moment of the trip I wanted to experience something new, my mind was expanding and I realized how much I had been living in a bubble. There is nothing greater than traveling and exploring. Each second was memorable and everlasting.

@VeuveClicquot Champagne Tasting in Reims, France

My favorite part of the trip was of course the visit to Reims, France to have champagne tasting.

We visiting our favorite champagne houses, Veuve Clicquot and learned so much about the Veuve house and about champagne. This was by far the best experience I ever had, IN MY LIFE.

The Year in Champagne documentary I watched on the way to Paris definitely helped me understand the region before arriving.

I knew about the cellars underground that went on for miles and miles and how they produced the different kinds. I even found out that they have a champagne school which is for a year in Reims that I would love to attend before I turn 40!

The experience was unimaginable and the tour guide we had was amazing. At the end of our Veuve tour, we tasted the Yellow Label (which we always get) and the Grand Dame, I most likely prefer the Grand Dame over the Yellow. I can’t bare to think of drinking the Yellow Label anymore.

We visiting an amazing cathedral and another smaller champagne house during our trip. It took most of the day and we took a 40 minute train ride up north to visit Reims. The weather was still amazing and I will never forget this day.

Paris, we’re here! #StGermain

We rented a 2-BR Airbnb place in St. Germain and we arrived around noon on Wednesday.

We quickly freshened up and headed out into the city to start our adventure!

I bought a converter on Amazon which ended up working pretty well. It had multiple outlets and two USB plug capabilities.

@FrankSinatra’s 100th Birthday Concert

I love Frank Sinatra and I was so bummed that I did NOT make it to the Hollywood Bowl this summer for his 100th birthday celebration. BUT… Bear got me tickets to the event on his actual 100th birthday on December 12th!!!

Even though I was a little bummed that it wasn’t a pair of Manolo pumps or a Chanel/Hermes accessory, I am so thankful to have gotten this gift.

I love standards and I love the 50’s and 60’s. This is something I will never forget and I cannot wait!!! He got me the best seats, right in the center, 8 rows back or whatever in orchestra section!!! WOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Work Work Work

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life” Confucius

The funny thing is, I’ve heard the quote many times in my life and I never thought anything of it.

I didn’t know I’d end up where I am today but each day is such a pleasure and I don’t feel like I’m working for a paycheck. This job chose me and I would have never imagined myself in this line of career but I can’t imagine doing and or being anything else.

Life is just too simply weird and sometimes, we just have to go with it.

Wedding Day

Photographs by the talented @MichelleKimPhoto!

We rented a shuttle since most of the people were from out of town. We met at our apartment in DTLA and shuttled everyone to El Matador Beach in Malibu for our private ceremony.

#SelfieStick came in handy!

I, of course, had to get into my Nike Internationalist in Silver to hike down the mountain.

IMG_2880The weather was gloomy but apparently it works best in photos so I wasn’t too mad. Well, except that I had my hair blowing everywhere and ruining photos!

I was freezing and was glad I brought my Yves Salomon Raccoon Fur coat (similar)
to stay warm.

We then headed to Moonshadows in Malibu for brunch before heading to the hotel for our reception.

Everyone took a nap… :P

I cried my eyes out… most of the people shed a tear… I must say, my vows were pretty amazing.

I felt so nervous about reading it and it took about a minute of me laughing and hesitating before I started but once I got going, I couldn’t stop tearing.

I’ll read my vows one day and make a video… so you can all enjoy!

#ElMatadorBeach

We visited out wedding venue in Malibu. Bear had found this location on Google and decided that it would be best to get married on the beach with our family and officiant. The cost is free but it’s a hike to climb back up after the ceremony. It’s a bit dangerous and shoes will not be necessary, only when we’re going down the mountain/stairs and on the way up.  The beach is so gorgeous and I’m so glad that we’ll have a beautiful backdrop in our photos. Michelle Kim will be our photographer. We initially wanted her when we were first planning but when we had decided not to do a full blown wedding, we opted not to have one. Luckily my dress is short so I won’t have an issue with getting it dirty for the reception! :)

Stars Line Up pt. 2

I went to go see her again. The Korean Astrologist. Due to my bad memory, I couldn’t remember what she shared with me from the last visit but as I listened this time, it was all coming back to me.

This time around I paid an extra $40 and had Bear’s astrology/fortune explained to me.

It’s funny how she is so spot on about things. As I mentioned before, the information she provides is our fate. Our characteristics, behaviors and certain choices. Of course, the journey we take in our lives have everything to do with the road we which to take.

She didn’t remember me from the last visit and she seems to be giving me similar information. I didn’t disclose last time but I will in this post. She warned me about getting into a fatal car accident and I would be in danger of getting into a wreck having to deal with vehicles. She advised me to sell my motorcycle at the time and told me to be very cautious. I did end up selling my bike, for financial and safety reasons.

She also told me that this year will be a bad year for me and that I need to be mindful of the things I choose to do or not do. She told me to drive carefully, especially.

She also mentioned the lack of patience I had, she told me that I rush into decisions too quickly and that I need to take a moment to step back and evaluate before making a decision. She told me my character traits which seems to be spot on.

She told me about Bear’s character trait that was also right on the money.

Remember, I only gave her my name, birthday, time I was born and my phone number. As for Bear, I only gave his birthday and time he was born. For all I know, she assumed he was Korean.

The point of this session was to see if I was on the right track, apparently Bear was destined to marry me and she even went as far as saying that he needed to get married last year (2014) or in 2015. :)

This lady only speaks Korean and even I needed my friend to help translate a lot of things so if you’re not Korean, I suggest you take a translator. If you’ll like her info, email me and I’ll send you her number.

Again, the best $100 I’ve ever spent!
