Met my Downey friends for dinner at a new shopping center in Downey…
We ate at gaucho Grill and went to Stay Gallery for an art exhibit after…
It was nice catching up with old friends!
My trip to NY in August was super eventful. The weather was much better and I experienced an amazing dining experience at The Nomad Hotel. Although it wasn’t truffle season and my gf JL really wanted me to try the truffle pasta.. we figured I’d be back soon enough to try it next time! We had frosé, saw sapphires and enjoyed the tolerable weather… way better than my trip before.
My next NY trip is in October, less than a month away and another in November… I’m excited to be back with my fur!
My colleague had her birthday several weeks ago and I got to visit the Sunset Tower Hotel for the first time! I loveeeedddd their bar, we had great drinks and apps until the birthday girl arrived. We ended up at Skybar at the Mondrian Hotel, I didn’t stay late since I had an early am the next day.
I need to go back though…
I needed a drink and I needed to write. Couldn’t figure out where until @WriterLe recommended a hotel lobby bar. I had two glasses of wine and got some writing done but not enough.
The only thing I wish for this experience to be more beneficial to me is that they have a better wine selection.
This is going to be a norm for me. The Line Hotel + computer + alcohol.
I must say, I was the fattest I’ve been in New York on this last trip. My fat ass still ate like a pig and enjoyed my mini vacation. It’s crazy how often I’ve been going to NY and I’m always thinking about when I’m going to go back. I will say though, it is different with JL having a place of her own and now living with her bf.
I forgot how warm and disgusting NY gets in the summer. I’ve been so many times in the fall and winter that I didn’t expect the weather to be THAT unbearable. I plan to skip NY for the rest of the season and look forward to going back in the fall. However when I was editing my NY video, I realized how much fun I have with my gf JL and how much I already missed her. Being able to relive the moment through my videos are priceless and I’m so glad I picked up on this hobby even though I annoy most people with my camera in their face.
My trip to Las Vegas was short lived. Not that that was a bad thing. It’s actually the way to do it. I had all day Sunday to recoup and I needed it. I literally slept all day. I woke up twice to eat, but that’s about it. I arrived late evening on Friday, had a quick bite and joined my friend and his boss at Marquee. His boss came in on a helicopter with his wife for their six year anniversary + another couple. Just the four of them. How exciting and fun is that? They danced and drank and by the looks of it, they had a really great time. It made me think… Bear and I would never do something like that… he hates the club!
That was the first part of the night, the second part was at my friend’s table once the rest of his friends arrived. We drank and danced and tried to go to Drai’s but didn’t make it in… will not say why. When we got out of the hotel to get back to our rooms, the sun was out. We slept for a few hours and headed to the day club.
I originally went to join my friend because… well I missed Vegas. And he was there for work. I’m already thinking about when I could go back… hopefully in June!🙂😛
The school year is over for most but for Bear and I, we are still working towards our degrees. Bear is in school for his MBA, I think he’s the smartest bf I’ve ever had. I am in school for my Bachelor’s Degree. B.S. Communications. I have two more quarters to go and Bear… well… he has 1.5 more years to go. Maybe even two, but I want to round down. The class that is graduating had a party, so everyone in the MBA program was invited. I had just touched down from Vegas and wasn’t in the mood to drink, but I was in the mood for some tacos, which they were serving. I people watched all night while I tried to get Bear to go talk and mingle. He refused. He didn’t want to leave me in the corner with my phone and shoving my face with tacos. Either he thinks someone will sweep me away or he thinks I can’t shoo them away myself. Either way, he stuck to me like glue and wouldn’t network. Well, not as much as he could. His buddies in his class came by and said hello.
I also saw Eugene Lee Yang from BuzzFeed. I was super excited to meet him (went up and introduced myself) and gave him my card asking if there was an opening.😛 He was nice (or acted really nice) and friendly. Didn’t realize he was a producer… etc. So cool. And he’s Korean.🙂
I wore my nude suede dress that I purchased in November 2015. It was long and had a slit in the front middle. Didn’t like that look anymore so I had it altered and it became a short dress.
I love the nude of the dress because it’s the perfect skin tone against my skin.
The lip product was the Tom Ford Patent Finish Lip Color
Our little family had dinner at CPK after I picked up Tyler from south OC. Funny thing is, I recommended Thai food, both agreed but when I gave them a second option of CPK, they jumped at the opportunity. It was a great choice because I had not had CPK in forever. I love that place so much! I’ve been messing with my camera a lot and I recorded a video during our dinner date.
We sat at the bar since the place was crowded and I was starving. Spinach and artichoke dip, kid’s bbq pizza, club pizza and kung pao spaghetti. Ugh everything was so tasty. I’m on my detox now and I hate that I’m writing about food as I’m chomping on raw veggies.😦
