#ILOVEYOU @Equinox #doingjim

I love the Beverly Hills location mostly for their showers. Oh and the proximity to the office of course, but that’s not really equitable.

Out of all the Equinoxes I’ve experienced, the BH location has the largest showers. The time that I go only attracts senior citizens so I’m so good with that. I’m so particular that I started to wake up even earlier than when I first started so I can park right in front. I don’t like parking in the garage because it’s hassle. I go early enough where the street parking laws aren’t enforced. I like to go from door to door essentially.

The staff is wonderful in the mornings, Shayma is great. I now have gone too many times that she knows me by my name which I like. It’s always nice to be greeted with my name.

The locker rooms are spacious, however there aren’t any tall lockers like Newport and Westwood (only two I can think of that has it, oh and maybe a NY location). Westwood has a sitting area, and the locker room is MUCH larger, but the showers are tiny like Newport and Huntington.

I remember when I first joined Equinox in 2009/2010 ish. I remember times in my life by the boyfriends I’ve had or what job I was working. I was riding my GSXR600 to Irvine for work and decided to get a membership in Newport. I first went to Sports Club in Irvine, but it was too expensive for me at the time, so I opted for the $135/month trap with Equinox. I’ve been a member ever since and couple years after joining, I upped my membership to All Access, still no access to Century City and more recently the Sports Club takeovers.

Now I pay… well just up until last month, I paid $208. They’ve increased $5 every year. I just recently got a letter in the mail and they are upping my dues $10. So now I’ll be paying $218 for April and until they decide to raise the price again.

Nonetheless, I fucking love Equinox.

@HouseofSillage #Winner

I never win anything. So when I won the luxury perfume bottle from #HouseofSillage, I was enthralled with excitement. By winning the social media post campaign, I won a bottle of my choice! Hauts Bijoux!!

I discovered this bottle when I was in New York at Bergdorf Goodman buying Diana Vreeland’s Outrageous Simply Divine. If I hadn’t already bought my other expensive bottle, I would’ve bought House of Sillage… I mean, how could I NOT? Look at the gorgeous packaging!

Thank you so much House of Sillage for picking me! This is my favorite scent in their collection. I can’t wait to wear it out and discover additional scents by this perfumer!

Thinking about @KateSomerville

I’ve been thinking about going back to Kate Somerville for another facial. My first one got me hooked and it was such a pleasant experience and a luxury to experience the service. Funds wise, I can’t afford to go as often as they recommend so I think I’ll start buying their products one by one and use it at home. I did find the products they used during the facial to really make an emphasise on my skin during and even days after.
They first started with ExfoliKate® Cleanser Daily Foaming Wash to clean off any dirt on my face. The also used their NEW Kate Somerville Cold Creamwhich smelled amazing…
My favorite Kate Somerville’s award-winning DermalQuench Liquid Lift, literally the best thing in the world.

They finished with the UncompliKated SPF 50 Soft Focus Makeup Set and I was on my way.

Why I Love @Equinox #EQXCycling

My workload at the office has increased substantially. My trips to Vegas has decreased immensely. I started spinning after work to avoid traffic and hoping that this is the year I really get to produce some sort of abs.

Basically, I just want to spend more me time right now than spend time going out and eating and drinking.

Spinning has always been a love of mine, so much that after one class I bought shoes, many many years ago. I started at the Newport location, my home gym and then went to South Bay.

Now with the new classes and bikes, the visual stimulation is really addicting.

I’m still working on winning that bet with Bear so if I go to the gym twice a day, it still counts as two so I’m working on my 175 times a year much quicker. Since I tend to teeter off towards the end of the year…

I didn’t realize this years ago because my love for Vegas was nonexistent but now, I love spinning because it’s just like a Vegas nightclub. It’s dark and the music is bumping. Expect, I’m not dancing and drinking alcohol, I’m doing cardio and chugging water which is the best for me anyway! If I can’t be in Vegas, I’d rather be in spin… omg I think I made a new quote.

Also, I just discovered this #soulcycle teacher who freakin has confetti and sparklers in her class. I’m signing up stat!

@KateSomerville

I had a gift card for a complimentary facial at Kate Somerville which was going to expire in April. It was two days before the end of March and I called to make an appointment.

I was nervous about arriving because I know how some of these shee shee places get. Rude employees and horrible attitude usually, however I was surprised by their welcoming gesture. I filled out my forms and was escorted to a room for my signature facial.

I will say, I enjoyed every second of the experience. The massage I received was a nice complement.

I only found out about them because of my friend Catalina, and have started falling in love with all their products, one by one.

#MustTRY @SaraHappInc

I got this as a gift and I finally tried it this week. First of all, the scent of this is hypnotizing. Just like the red velvet flavor of a Sprinkles cupcake. The second I twisted the jar open, the whiff of the smell just brightened my day.

I scooped a generous amount (as stated) with my index nail and followed the directions… rubbed in circular motion on my lips. I tried so hard not to eat it but I had to taste it and it didn’t even taste bad. I was pleasantly surprised but the application. I wondered during those couple of minutes I was scrubbing on how my lips would feel after.

After I wiped it off with a towel, I washed it off since I was in the shower. I was still mesmerized by the scent that I didn’t want to stop rubbing it into my lips. My first time every trying a lip scrub, so I didn’t know what to expect.

As the jar states… something like “you’ll wonder why you never used it before” I can’t remember exactly but that’s my takeaway. lol

@TheNoMadHotel

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.

Sunday Night

I got a bunch of masks from Bear when he went to Korea. He’s been begging me to try this one and finally after a year I did. I did like that it was a 2-piece set. Easier to put on. I do like masks but I feel like my skin feels great for the evening… This however comes with a cream you apply on your face before you put on the gold creepy thing.

After 20 minutes, you discard the mask and apply the rest of the cream. The cream is what’s amazing. I’m not sure if the mask is used to keep the moisture from evaporating… however my skin never felt better. Even throughout the night, into the morning until I took a shower and washed my face. However my skin feels much better days after this mask than any other.

#DoingJim @equinox

Getting it. I’m doing two a day on Mondays and Tuesdays, and as many as I can. However when the week gets later, I get lazy to go in the am cause I’ve already knocked out 4 workouts by Tuesday night. My goal is to go 6 days a week which I accomplished last week.

Monday – twice
Tuesday – twice
Wednesday – after work
Thursday – after work
Friday – NA
Saturday – NA
Sunday – NA

Maybe I should really spread it out lol.

This week Monday, I went twice. Tuesday I went once.

I’m writing this Tuesday and have it scheduled and this will post Friday so IDK when else I’ll go this week yet.

 

#RainyDay #doingJim @REDValentino @BrabusGermany

I kinda love when it rains so I can wear my amazing raincoat. I actually wonder why more brands don’t design it. It’s super functional. It keeps me warm because there’s no ventilation and it keeps me dry. Did you not see that Chanel purse rain cover coat thingy. LOL

I mean there are a bunch: Amazon, Shopbop

Daily Intake @Equinox @PentaWater @MrsRenfros @LaCroixWater

Penta Water, Mrs. Renfros Ghost Pepper Salsa, La Croix Coconut

I remember when Penta first came out. It supposed to hydrate you like no other. I got it for free at Equinox when they had their spring promotion thingy…

And you know my ghost pepper salsa, I can’t live without it.

New find, the coconut sparkling water. Tastes like creme soda.
