#MakeAWish

My wish was to be able to have friends like these until the end of time. Every birthday that comes around, I’m forever grateful for the souls in my life. I wouldn’t be who I am without every single person. I learn and grow from the dearest around me and I hope to be able to give something back.

#foreverthankful

Prior to this dinner, I was apprehensive about wanting to celebrate. I didn’t want to do anything this year and I felt bad burdening people. Over the course of the evening, I was extremely happy about the get together. I wish to be humbled in every experience and celebrating with people who respect me just as much as I respect them was a treat.

People grow out of friendships but I just keep growing into mine. At least the ones that count.

Thank you again and my wish is forever granted with all of you in my life!

#Birthday w/ Friends

I’ve celebrated many birthdays and all my 32 years of living, last night’s celebration with friends was the best I’ve ever had.

The company of dear friends with great food and drinks is all we really need in life.

It was a moment of clarity knowing that I’m surrounded by amazing friends who give me love, support and happiness. I am truly blessed to have such special people in my life who make me want to do and be a better person.

Friends are worth living and celebrating life.

#Cheers and #thank you so much for the generous gift and an unforgettable evening!

LOVE YOU ALL, C.C.B.J.!

#Birthdaywish

I got just what I wanted. I wanted to do nothing. I’m at home watching Netflix. Orange Is The New Black.

No plans, nothing. He got me three bottles but I don’t even want to drink.

Saturday I pick up Tyler at 8:30am and we have Cars 2 screening at the Petersen Car Museum at 7pm.

He goes to church with my mom on Sunday am so he spends the night usually.

My only wish was to not burden anyone of my birthday. I was just glad to have friends in my life. I know we all get crazy schedules and honestly I don’t like planning.

Just happy, happier than the days this week.

Happy birthday to me and my eyelash 언니, Yeana.

#PoolDay #LDW

The best way to end the summer…

Pool time with friends and family! Thank you for the hospitality!

We practiced diving… helped burn our calories, so says C & B.

I was always scared of diving. I’ve never tried until Sunday.

The way I learned to swim:

Dad: Come down the slide, I’ll catch you!

Me: Ok!

After I slide down, no one was around, I doggy paddled to the side as I hyperventilated.

Not FUN!

Diving scare the shit out of me. Belly flop, water up the nose, skin the water contact.

I attempted once yesterday and I was able to satisfy my goal. I didn’t do it again.

I believe it was a fluke.

#HumpDay @HollywoodBowl

First time in the bleachers but it was super fun and nice to be around friends and have the whole area to ourselves!

There were some patrons around us who were a bit uptight but we just moved to another area after they started making comments.

Wine, cheese, kimpbap, fruits and tequila of course.

It was a fun night with the girls & their +1s.

Thank you 언니 for getting the tickets for us! We had such a blast!

Summer isn’t worth having if you can’t visit the Hollywood Bowl!

#CamObsessed @MichaelKors

Went to Century City Mall the other day with JO and couldn’t help but notice how Michael Kors is totally ripping off every premium designer, Valentino, Prada, Hermes…

I saw the calf hair slip ons and I loved! I also loved the camo bags they had but I’d rather have the Valentino~

Fish Out Of Water

I haven’t been to Neiman Marcus, Saks and Barney’s is such a long time.

I was asked to join a friend and of course I said yes!

Any reason to be around anything to do with spending money is my favorite past time!

I didn’t spend a dollar because OBVIOUSLY I’m in NO place to spend money.

So I just browsed and took #selfies.

Oh and of course, be the good friend and tell them my honest truth about what they were trying on.

I must say, I didn’t remember which was where and where to go for what.

We browsed in this order:

NM, Saks & Barney’s.

I even wore heels because our plan was to do dinner in the area after.

I felt awkward being in an unfamiliar surrounding. It may have been in my head because I just worry too much but I swear every employee was staring and judging.

I know how these SAs work. I don’t shop there, I don’t frequent so they stare and make comments to each other.

I enjoy my online shopping where it’s judgment free. Of course if I had a truck load of money to spend, I’d spend my free time there, buying things. Everything.

I felt uncomfortable. I haven’t purchased anything super expensive in so long.

The last time I was in Saks was when I bought my Manolo Blahnik’s I wore for Jo’s wedding. I actually bought the shoes back in 2006. Eight years ago. O.O

Last time I was in NM? At Fashion Island in Newport Beach. I was living in Coto de Caza and married. A different life.

It’s been a while and I didn’t feel like I belonged. I would eventually like to feel comfortable at the mall again but not until I can buy stuff. I don’t like to eye shop. It’s like foreplay and no climax.

I guess I’ll see you when I see you, shopping mall!

The best part about hanging out was that I got to see her new 4 series Gran Coupe! It’s sofa king gorgeous!
