Scent of the Day

Is there such thing a perfume swap? Like closet swap where friends swap clothes that they don’t wear from their closet? I have perfumes that I loved but not so crazy about them now. I haven’t worn this in so long and I actually forgot about it until we moved. It a great scent to wear again… light, crisp with a little bit of a floral/musk scent. As I get older I’m starting to like the musky scents.

Thank You @CatalinalinaSu @KaiFragrance

This is probably the best welcome home gift ever!!!

This is my favorite scent in the whole wide world. So much more also because they offer everything I need to get ready for my day. Shampoo, conditioner, lotion, deodorant, candles, matches, diffuser and even linen wash!!!

Granted my scope of experience with this brand has not been all of it, however one day, this will be the only product I use in my home.

If you hear me, please produce hand soaps! Oh and large formats of the linen and hair products! I want a 33oz lump bottle of the Kai Shampoo and Conditioner lol.

#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┬áExfoliKate┬« Cleanser Daily Foaming Wash┬áto 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.
