Broken @MarieNails #unicorn

I rushed to get it fixed because I would not be able to deal with a broken nail on my middle finger.

The camo is really growing on me, I almost want to do this every time but imaging the wait, I just want to kill myself.

Getting my mani and pedi has been a luxury. I started when I started my new job at the company about two years ago. I took a break since I couldn’t afford it and would always have to change my polish weekly. It was a chore.

Now it’s a chore to go every three weeks. I try to go once a month because spending $100ish dollars twice a month is not acceptable.

My usual gem mani and regular pedi is $87 +tip, this was $112 +tip.

Ouchie.

Morning @Equinox #DoingJim

January 3rd, Tuesday, I was at the gym bright and early. If you caught my IG story, I was in line to check in! 😛

Four days into the New Year and 2 out 4 days I went to the gym.

My husband told me he’d give me $1,000 if I go to the gym 175 days out of the year.

I get one freebie from 2016, so I have 3 under my belt!

Wish me luck!

#WithBennyD in AZ #Scottsdale

On NYE we drove to Scottsdale, Arizona for an engagement/NYE party. Bear’s college friend is having a small destination wedding so they decided to combine the celebration of the New Year and their commitment to each other.

We woke up early and headed east, but on the way we stopped by the outlets!

I blew my entire $500 gift from grandpa in an hour. I could’ve spent more but Bear put me on a budget. 😦

I found a few amazing pieces that I cannot wait to wear! Yippeeee!

It rained most of the day and all night and into the next day in Arizona.

It was super cold and not amusing.

I wore the same dress from my holiday party… I purchased it with the intention of wearing it for NYE and possibly my 35th birthday.

We had a great time, though the hotel we stayed at was sketchy. I was able to get a really nice photo in my raincoat. 😛


How To Eat A Drumstick @GusFriedChicken

My vlog went live last week and while I was editing the video, I realized how much I craved Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken.

We visited the location while we were in Kansas in December. We were there for a wedding and I really wanted to do a feature on a non-LA establishment. However, during our meal, the waitress informed us that Gus’s opened an LA location.

Now I’ll have to go visit!

Party Before the Party

JC’s birthday is NYE. She always has a party before the party and most of the time, I’m not able to make it. I’m so glad I was in town this time around!

The Morrison in Los Feliz… next to the Los Feliz Costco. Their burgers were yummy.

JC is my friend from middle school all the way through hs. We tried out for the 8th grade cheer squad in 1995 and both made it.

I have fond memories of our childhood and enjoy hanging out with her on these special occasions.

Happy Birthday!

 

Thanks @Jane_P_Lok #Thanksgiving

We were warmly welcomed by my colleague, her husband and friends. I quickly remembered to grab a bottle of my favorite hot sauce before running out the door. Bear made a few dishes while I took a nap.

Growing up in a Korean household, we never really celebrated it the “American” way. We had Korean food and had a party, maybe once in a while, we ordered from Boston Market, but that was as close to Thanksgiving growing up.

This year, we did not go to Kansas, therefore we had nothing to do. Bear insisted on cooking a two person meal for us… boy did I get lucky when my colleague invited us.

At the get together, we had all the fixings and everything was very yummy. If it had been just us two celebrating, he would have cooked Cornish hens with sides.

Another year has come around and I have so much to be thankful for. The new friendships, opportunities and milestones that have occurred in the past year has made me super grateful for my life. Though there are parts that can be better, I will forever cherish each memory and look forward to the future!

@Meliss_Platt Birthday Dinner @TheNiceGuy

The night was wonderful and the food was delectable…

The day my phone was stolen… @Equinox #DoingJim

I had a very busy day ahead of me.I was meeting my colleague in Calabasas at our project at 7am, carpooling to Santa Barbara by 9am for a coffee meeting at 9:15am. Client meeting at 10am and heading back to Calabasas by 2pm for another client meeting and dinner at The Nice Guy for another colleagues birthday in the evening.

I decided to visit the Woodland Hills Equinox since I wanted to pass the bulk of the traffic in the am so I can be as close to Calabasas as I could be.

Woodland Hills location needs personal locks, Beverly Hills location has locks on the locker. I always carry a lock since I never know where I’ll be…

I locked my locker, worked out and came back to shower. Literally there were only 5 women in the gym. Granted it was 5am. I jumped into the shower around 6:20am. Got out and walked over to the locker to find it slightly open. My phone was gone, everything else was there. My fur coat, makeup bag, shoes, gym bag, cash.

I was horrified. I walked around the locker room to see if anyone was around. A lady was in there so I asked her if she saw anyone near my locker and if she could ask the receptionist if anyone brought it in.

Nothing.

I got dressed and ready as quickly as I could while I was panicking.

I went to the reception and started to tear because I was so upset. I asked if any females had left in the past 15 minutes and he said two had left.

I want to assume it was an employee because anyone at the gym at that time was not trying to steal things.

I filled out a form and had to be on my way, phoneless…

I was without a phone all day. I got to Calabasas and immediately shut my iphone off and reported it stolen.

They still have not turned it on.

I ended up going straight to an Apple store after I got done in Calabasas before my dinner. Century City had the jet black in 128GB. I had the matte black in 256GB iphone 7 plus in both.

I’m most annoyed about my passport card that was in my phone case.

Whomever stole my iphone will rot in hell.

I am so disappointed… so upset about the situation. Who would go into someones locker when closed… even though I forgot to put the lock on it while I went to shower, it was closed and they knew I was utilizing it so they invaded my space and stole it.

I hope they die.

On a side note…I’ve been to Equinox (all locations) many times where people have their things in the locker without a lock. I open it thinking it’s free and it’s not. I don’t fucking steal shit, I just close it and move onto the next.

The difference between people like me and people like them. Fucking scoundrels.

THANKS to CHASE…

I am able to get up to $500 reimbursed for my stolen phone up to 120 days from the order date. So if you’ve gotten something damaged or stolen, check with the cc you purchased it with on what the terms and conditions are through the protection plan.

I went and filed a police report as well, so I could send it in.
