My favorite lighter was confiscated at LAX. I totally forgot to remove it from my purse before leaving the house.
Found a new one on Amazon!
Also got myself a Starbucks Cold Cup with Las Vegas on it! I contemplated while I was in line and when I got to the register (30 minutes later cause it was so crowded), I asked someone to grab it from the end of the line. 😛
My outfit is from F21:
Forever 21 Mesh Knit Crop Top & Mini Skirt Set Blue
This dress is from:
Did you ever go to Vanguard? Because I went recently for an event and it brought back so many memories. I didn’t go much because the promoter was Visionshock and I liked House of Glam parties… the outdoor patio was redone and so pretty.
My dear friend Catalina happened to be in the city too. Her friend, now turned my friend Heather lives in Greenwich with her family so we took the Metro North for $10 from Grand Central Terminal with Tyler and stayed with them.
I have never seen a house so beautiful. We went out to dinner in Long Island and met other friends. Had many laughs over drinks and food. 🙂
I have never been to the UK. One thing on my bucket list was to go to Monaco for the Grand Prix but scheduling and $$$ was a factor. As a substitue, we ended up getting tickets to the Grand Prix in Silverstone, UK. We used the Fourth of July holiday to take the vacation while I was working and Bear was transitioning from his old job to his new one.
We stayed in Shepard’s Bush and went to Paris for a day. It was an exciting time since the UK had made it to the top something for World Cup. We got to experience London and Paris during the last final games of the World Cup. The energy was UNREAL.
The best part of the trip was the F1 race of course. My future ex-husband Lewis Hamilton did not win the race in his home country but he made it to 2nd on the podium after a bump right after takeoff.
I can’t wait to go to all the F1 races in the future!!!
As for London, I’m okay with never coming back. It was just another version of New York with mediocre food.
This post is from my first visit. I end up saving all these drafts and never getting to it. Sorry!
Anyway, you know my obsession with washrooms if you follow me on social media.
I LOVE this washroom because everyone has their own private stall. Complete walls and real doors. The only thing I miss is the wall of hand towels like the one in NY. New York, I miss you!
I haven’t been in a week or two, time for me to go back.
Came to the LA location with the gf that introduced me to the NY spot years ago.
My friend is a DJ in Hollywood so we decided to hit the club while JL was in town.
Checked out the new Jeremy Hotel with colleagues and enjoyed the view and space very much. Sad that HWOOD is taking over and redoing the entire thing.
I had been dying to check out Waldorf and finally we had the opportunity. Though the original crew BWD (Babes Who Dine) weren’t available, we made the best of it!
Happy Birthday Laura! We spent the evening drinking and eating and catching up on life. It’s really nice to get together for a celebration because we get so caught up with work and our personal life that it’s hard to find time to meet with different friends.
The hotel was beautiful. I did feel a bit out-of-place (like I usually do) in a new spot, but even more so here because Waldorf is so fancy. I mean, valet is $50.
Would I go back? For sure… I’d love to check out brunch.

The napkin display doesn’t compare to the NY location, however I still love everything about the washroom at The NoMad. 😛
IDK why I have this obsession about bathrooms in restaurants and bars that I visit. I guess if I were in operations, I’d want everything to be perfect including the bathrooms. Especially the bathrooms.
Anyway, I’ve probably visited The NoMad in DTLA once or twice every week. Twice if I’m lucky.
I can’t get enough. I love the service, ambiance, cocktails, food, all of it. I want to move into the hotel just so I can hang out in the lobby all day.
I want to frequent it so much that everyone knows my name. Is that asking too much?
I may even want a job there. #deadserious
We had to recreate Vegas for our friend GT so we rented out a space and threw him the best Vegas like birthday. Though it did not include any champagne.
We got a taco lady, full bar (no bartenders, but it worked out really well), ramen bar, photo booth, some decorations, DJ and dessert station.
I ordered a beverage dispenser that we filled with alcohol and it ended up being a better option than hiring staff. I got a photo printed cake from Ralphs which was the best tasting cake I’ve ever had. It was a marble cake with whipped frosting, bananas and strawberry filling. Everything turned out super well, GT got caked in the face and I didn’t get a photo with the birthday boy.
Usually that’s what happens when I’m having too much fun. I forget about taking photos and posting on social media.
Better later (post) than never!
Always a great time with Gordon.
