#BNO Boobies Night Out

Our friend Hana was attending an opening reception for Werkartz and we decided to join in. Free booze and drink, I’m there!

We got there early and arrived in Uber of course, we were a bit lost but finally arrived.

Grabbed a drink, sat and talked. Tried to network but there were too many people and I only knew Hana, Joanna and Tina.

JO on her new iphone case from Korean. Ridiculously wrong, but so cute!

The Werkartz Studio was amazing! And the people I did get to meet were too.

Then we headed over to our usual late HH, EMC! Bottle (oh it was two) of rose.

And then, that happened. Dropped the toilet paper roll. Luckily I was able to get a handful before it fell!

HAPPY #EASTER!

I got a box of Rainbow of Cottontails Easter Cookies from Dean & Deluca to pass out to friends. I know my friends without families would appreciate my gesture of NOT sending them the whole box.

I watch out for my friends, we are all trying to NOT overdose on extra calories.

Bear on the other hand, he can afford some calories.

Of course, Bear ate the Violet bunny! :) He loved it!

Jo came back from Korea with goodies!

Top Clockwise

1. Condition (Hangover drink. You drink before you start drinking!)

2. Honey Mustard (Since McDonald’s discontinued their #hotmustard. Jo found a comparable one, woohoo!)

3. Red Chili Paste from Korean Air (For Blair. Jo says they have the best Gochujang)

4. Panda Socks!!!

The Gang Is ALL Here! @RubyStellaInc

I’ve never been more obsessed with jewelry…

They say it takes a special someone to make you fall in love. Well, #RubyStella has done just that!

WWW.RUBYSTELLA.COM

My girls Ruby and Stella have this industry on lock.

Their inventory is flying off the shelves, please make sure you check out their site and grab everything you can!

I added 4 14K ROSE GOLD STACKABLE MIDI KNUCKLE RINGS to my collection, sizes vary.

I also added the 14K ROSE GOLD FLOATING HEART FRIENDSHIP BRACELET

I had the 14K ROSE GOLD DIAMOND BAR BRACELET

 

Look how amazing my hands look!

Although, I need something else on my right hand. I had the #VogueRings there but it kept getting in the way since I use my right hand a lot. It would get caught on things, so I need more of a flatter piece.  I have my eye on either the Infinity Circle or the Diamond Shield, of course in #rosegold…

 

Oh and on my ear I have the Diamond Bar Earring Pin in Rose Gold. The best yet. No photo cause my ears are ugly. The ear pin actually makes my ears look good.

#QualityTime

Life as an adult gets more difficult since there aren’t enough days in a month to see everyone I love.

I make it a point to always hang out with the important people in my life.

I give the effort that is put in towards me.

With that said, my cousin and her family are a part of my family that I love to see and hang out with.

They’ve invited us to their home for dinner and fun numerous times and we wanted to return the favor by having them over after Bear’s move.

We ordered KC BBQ (Bear’s favorite restaurant). Go to PigletVentures for all the food photos!

Kids played and adults talked, laughed and drank a whittle. :P

We had so much fun and too much food! I couldn’t stop eating and I had ramen after they left!

I woke up… Too many pounds on the scale.

I need to do Jim but I just want to eat all day.

First event coverage.

I could’ve been better, but oh well.

I should’ve had drinks after getting on the camera, lesson learned.

#humpday @LeKaRestaurant

Met some new friends last night and for once I was the token Asian in the group.

Bear’s friend from college had recently moved to LA and happened to be in DTLA last night.

They had already eaten and wanted to grab drinks so we ate while they drank.

 

I thought I was amongst all white people, but the girl happened to be Armenian. All the boys agreed she was white since she had blonde hair. Could have fooled me!

We all laughed and had a great time while poking fun at stereotypes. It was nice to meet new people and be able to connect instantly and not be awkward.

It was different from any other night because we were with Bear’s friend. All the time, we’re with my friends and I always felt bad.

Hopefully we can all hang out again…

Hope your #humpday was just as fun!

 

OH and I learned something new : click here

Friday Night Out

Bear dropped me off at Bestia for dinner with the girls… I love that his place has a mirror right in front of the elevator. Perfect #selfie opportunity. I’m wearing his flannel cause I needed a top.

My view. I had to ask for red pepper flakes of course.

The pizza had too much tomato sauce and I had to cut the part out.

I also had to ask for paper napkins because I HATE condensation on my glass.

After dinner, we all went to Chynna and met Bear there. Grabbed a few drinks, stopped by the market to get food for the house and came home and passed out.

DIVERGENT #MUSTWATCH

I don’t read much. (I really should though).

I’ve been seeing this trailer on TV while watching my recorded shows, but never paid attention since I would fast forward through commercials.

I was interested but didn’t care to watch the film.

When JO asked if I wanted to join them Thursday night with G (her sister) to watch it, I agreed to go.

Any time I get to spend with them, I jump at the chance…

We had dinner at Pampa’s and strolled in around 8pm to our assigned seating.

OMFGHAKSDJFLSKHDFAKJDFHKAJSHF;KASDFHJ

This film was great! (Please keep in mind that I did not read the book).

1. To watch a film that I could potentially show my child because there is no cigarette smoking in it is amazing!

Granted there is minimal sexual content. There is also some fighting but all for good reason. They’re protecting themselves and what they believe in.

I won’t spoil the film for you, but from JO & G, it’s nothing like the book.

Divergent_film_poster (1)

Have you seen him before? That’s Theo James. He’s the hottie in the movie.

The moment he came on, I turned to G and said, “HE’S HOT!”

Not hotter than Bear, of course.

Theo James looks like all the average white actors put together to make a better version. Like, the guy that died from Fast and Furious, Captain America and the evil character from the first Spiderman that was the friend.

Doesn’t he?

theo-james-lips theo-james-next-r-pattz--large-msg-136356254424

 

The movie had emotional connection to family, friend and colleagues. There was a lot of action with moments where I got nervous and even held my breath.

MUST WATCH!

What to expect when marrying a white guy…

1. Thanksgiving is awesome

2. No outlandish expectations from parents to help with the housework when visiting

3. No criticizing of any sort

4. Always encouraging

5. Gives a lot of words of affirmation

6. NO judgement

7. Christmas is more awesome

8. Communicating is easy

9. Exposed to different love languages

10. Children will be beautiful!

 

Having to have spent time with Bear’s family over the holidays really made me think about the kind of childhood I had.

It wasn’t bad at all, it was just different.

Growing up in a Korean family, speaking ONLY Korean in the home was great. I didn’t know anything else.

Growing up and hanging out in other Korean homes made it seem normal.

If you go over someone’s house, you offer to help and most likely they’ll be expecting you to. If you don’t help, the parents will talk shit to their child about how disrespectful you were. A. You won’t be dating them anymore B. You won’t be back at the house.

I also noticed that my natural reaction to get up and sit properly or stand if I’ve been lying down or slouching on a surface was unnecessary.

They offered me a glass of wine the first night I met them.

Over the holidays last year, I slept in til 10am, sometimes even 11:30am and nobody cared. Well, except for Bear because he wanted to hang out with me.

I caught myself doing things in the room I was staying in to make sure that it was clean and perfect just the way they had it for me when I left, but honestly, I don’t think they would have minded. I made sure to pick up any piece of hair left in the bathroom floor.

Bear’s mother made EVERYTHING from scratch. Dinner entrees, sides, desserts, pastries, breakfast, bread, EVERYTHING!

One thing I remember vividly, and the reason for this post is to point out the difference in parenting and home life.

I was helping with dinner one night and I offered to help. She asked me to cut up the vegetables. Halfway through, I asked, “is this ok?” She replied, “you’re doing a great job, thank you”.

It felt good to hear that. Honestly, if Tyler was helping me chop of vegetables I would probably tell him he’s doing it wrong and try to have him do it the way I want. I can’t remember if that’s how I grew up, but it does sound familiar in a sense that my parents were very critical of the way I did things. I catch myself being critical of Tyler all the time. After my time with Bear’s family I’ve tried to take in the good and learn from his parents on how to be a better parent. To be encouraging and positive, not always trying to correct my child.

It’s a work in progress.

This is all new to me, and if I had never met Blair, I’d be passing on my Korean parenting traditions and I don’t know how I feel about that.

It’s like they say… you don’t know anything if you haven’t experienced it.

Now that I’ve experienced a different cultural home life, I can use it to my advantage and make sure that I pass on the good traits to my child and future children.

I can’t imagine what my life would be like without Bear and his family.

I’m so happy and feel blessed to have met him and to be able to surround myself with his family.

I love my Korean family, of course, they’re just different. :)

Reality

Not living out of your means.

For the first time in my life I’m with a guy man who is doing such that.

It was maxing out credit cards.

Driving a car but asking me to get it under my name.

Using my credit card because it was easy ‘at the time’ and he’d give me cash later (which he never did).

Buying things on credit.

Claiming things were his when in reality it was borrowed.

Going to ‘meetings’ with potential ‘clients’.

The list goes on.

It’s no one’s fault but mine, really.

I chose to date them because I didn’t see the obvious signs.

It’s common for people to get clouded by the glitz & glam that a person may portray but it’s important to understand that what they give off is genuine and honest.

Most cases, you won’t find these characteristics in individuals who need to flaunt and brag.

Reality is great. Reality is substance, easy to see, understand and feel secure.

I feel like a new person, in no way am I feeling like I have to carry someone or worry that they may have ulterior motives.

My Bear has been the only person in my life to make me feel like I’m not being used.

There was a period in my life (when first dating Bear) where I wasn’t blogging often. Why? Well, I was happy.

I like to blog about things that annoy me, complain about circumstances, bash on stereotypes… you know, if you’ve been a reader.

When life is grand, there’s nothing to talk about.

But one day, a friend told me, “why don’t you write about the good stuff?’

My immediate response was, “no one wants to read the happy shit.”

I realized, people want to read the happy shit.

Nobody really believes that I’m happy and have found my Seoul mate.

Nobody wants me to be happy, nobody wants anyone to be happy if you’re not a real friend.

I never felt the need to prove to anyone about what I choose to do in my life, so this is different.

I truly believe that there is a better chance at winning the lottery than finding your true love.

I got lucky to have met Bear. My future posts about relationships will be the reality/truth about my romantic life.

Reality is better than a facade. Get it together people.

Do you even know the true you?

#PARKSISTERSxVEEV @VEEV #ABetterWayToDrink

Honestly I was excited about a #happyhour that I didn’t have to pay for but once I tasted the spirit of #VEEV, I fell in love and realized that they need better marketing!

I’m a sucker for tasteless alcohol and I’m a bigger sucker for free booze, so this event that #ParkSisters hosted was just up my alley and I was thrilled to be a part of it.

THANK YOU AGAIN, JO and G!!!

Veev and the Park Sisters hosted a cocktail making class at their headquarter in Beverly Hills.

We took Uber to the office and waited for others to arrive.

IMG_5038

 

This was by far the coolest #HappyHour ever. I learned something while drinking and having fun with the people I like to spend time with. It was a very chill environment and it didn’t seem like they were pushing the product too much.

This is for sure because when I asked the ‘bartender instructor’ James Bowers what his favorite drink was, it wasn’t Veev. :P

After class, we all decided to go to EMC for dinner… the girls that took Uber hopped in the cars of the girls that drove. :)

IMG_5075 IMG_5078 IMG_5079

To celebrate, well, not really anything in particular, we got a bottle of Veuve.

IMG_5081 IMG_5090 IMG_5091

After EMC, we wanted to dance so Nancy (the gracious driver) drove us to Honeycut! We stopped by the market and got scratchers, because… well, just because.

IMG_5092 IMG_5096

 

It seemed like we were walking all over town aimlessly. We stumbled to G’s place in Little Tokyo and then went for pho after G fell asleep.

It was an unexpected fun night with the girls. I was happy to have tried Veev in a way that I was able to enjoy it and taste it for what it was rather than in a cocktail at a public place.

We also got a gift bag with a bottle and bracelet, THANK YOU VEEV!
