#DateNight @FaithandFlower #DTLA

I had to go to my CPA’s office because of an amendment tax file I had to do, so we decided to have dinner out.

We stopped by Beer Belly, but it was closed. They’re having a company dinner, which I’m so behind. Employers should totally treat out their employees.

We were scrambling to figure out where to go driving through #KTOWN when I saw Nancy’s #ig.

#FaithandFlower raw bar.

I checked with #opentable and got a reservation.

To my surprise, I saw my friend Stephane who greeted us and welcomed us to his new place.

The restaurant was exactly to my taste. Aesthetically exquisite in every detail and corner of the space.

I said hello to Nancy and her hubby Sam and sat down for a fun dinner with my Bear.

I wanted the rose from the ‘Fizz’ category but when it arrived it was flat. The server came back with the correct drink in the coup glass.

I was contemplating on either the $19 brut rose or the $9 champagne, I left it up to Bear to decide.

I did say, I could have two glasses with the cheaper one. :P

Bear chose the brut rose for me. ;)

Thank you Stephane for the complimentary dishes and absinthe drink!

I can’t wait to go back… I need to go back!

Man Down! #rubystella

So I was in class printing films and I realize I didn’t have the midi ring on my index finger.

I freaked out. Managed to keep it under control in front of the classmates and professor. ūüė≥

Now I have to pick up another…

Size 3, please!

20140421-221146.jpg

20140421-221151.jpg

Btw, these NEVER come off.

Sleeping included. I’ve ha times where I overrate and over drank and I woke up like a puffy clown.

Then it reminds me that I should not do that often.

Keeps me skinny. :P

#RubyStella Midi Knuckle Ring

Of course Rose Gold. Sizes vary, I say just get a bunch!

#EasterSunday

I slept most of the am and afternoon.

Bear wanted to go hit balls and I needed some subjects to shoot.

Only reason I went. He actually pulled over the side of the fwy for me this time

20140420-190209.jpg

Then to the market cause he’s going to make me dinner!

Parked behind us when we got out. Fellow #Italia~

20140420-190714.jpg

Still getting used to bringing bags.

20140420-190825.jpg

#Veuve was from hubby. We got the #chandon today. I’ll drink the cheapest.

20140420-190930.jpg

Tonight’s recipe.

20140420-191056.jpg

20140420-191119.jpg

First I start with this while the champagne chills.

20140420-191231.jpg

I was able to get two subjects today. I still need about seven.

Need 10 for the final but want to have more, just in case.

I tried to get Bear to take a photo of me taking a photo on the side of the freeway but he refused.

He’s ring super cautious, he doesn’t want me to die, hello?

:)

It would have been cool.

So Bear is cooking now and he asks that I not be in his way. So I cleaned the bathroom but as I was bending over, my body chain broke.

I need to lose weight.

Tonight is my last #hoorah. I need to do Jim ASAP everyday.

I’m suppose to start tomorrow.

@KtownNightMarket

We decided to go early today before the rush.

20140419-210006.jpg

Stopped by the Loud Mouse X Timeless Clothing Brand booth to get my #KoreaTown shirt!!

I got a white in size small, make sure you get yours!

20140419-210309.jpg

Bear played some games and won me a stuffed animal. I would’ve had two but the guy at the booth said he didn’t win when he clearly did.

20140419-210410.jpg

And me drinking salsa…

See why … PigletVentures

#DW #ootd #BoB

So today I had to take some photo for my final project in my photography class.

The series is called #wasteofspace.

I need 10 shots in the series.

We drove around east Los Angeles because there is where my subject pieces would be.

I asked Bear to take photos of me while I’m shooting.

All mine except the #IsabelMarant fur coat.

I’m lucky to have such generous friends.

This jacket belongs to the original #fashionista friend Catalina.

She let me borrow it when winter started before I went to Kansas for the holidays. She said she was sick of it and said I could wear it this season.

I felt so honored an make sure I take care of it!

So happy that I get to wear it and LA is a bit still cold! :P

Thank you!!!

#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!

Our friend HANA…

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

There was a wall covered in mirrors so of course we took #selfies!

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


IMG_6477 IMG_6480IMG_6485

 

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

Why so worried???

And me!

Short night out… I needed it.

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!

From Korea w/ love… @JoannaPark #mustTRY

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!!!

Should’ve tried the hangover drink yesterday.

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

Bear needed new glasses and boy are they fancy!

We went to a friend’s optometry in Garden Grove last weekend to pick them out and get an eye exam.

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.

Dinner dates

After our bottle, we each got a glass. I got rose, JOh got white and JL got red. We drink it all!

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

20140322-171328.jpg

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.

20140322-171355.jpg

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!
