@RaelBox #MustTry

So I got sent these organice menstural items and was excited to use it. Having that it was sent right after my period, I had to wait almost a month.

(find the products here)

I use overnight pads when I’m most heavy when I sleep. I also use pantyliners during the first couple of days and the last couple of days. I have this weird thing where I stop bleeding for a day and it appears again. And every time, it tricks me. Pantyliners come in handy.

I didn’t know what to expect, I never thought of going organic but after the first use, I’m a bit obsessed.

For me, I don’t know the difference other than to describe how it feels. It felt cleaner if that makes sense. The material was comfortable, I didn’t feel like I was sweating or smelly. The feeling of wearing Rael was a much better experience than Playtex or whatever other brand I’d pick up at the store.

And I’m not just saying this because I was sent this stuff. If you know me, I’m going to be candid about my opinions even if it was for free… it’s typically with food so this is a bit different.

I’ll use it again on my next cycle and see if my opinion stays the same…

Thank you Rael for sending!

American Contemporary Ballet #Nutcracker

Probably the most progressive and interactive ballet ever. This was such an amazing show, I recommend everyone to go at the end of this year… hoping they’ll have it again. I loved the engagement between the dancers and the audience.

#HolidayParty @FigandOlive_USA

Bear’s new company’s holiday party of 2017. We felt honored to have been invited before he even started his position.

The gambling part was fun. We didn’t win anything but gambling with play money was winning. I stuck to my game of roulette. Favorite, always.

The Broad

Took my mom and Tyler to The Broad museum for a day out. My mom’s bday is on the 20th and since she had plans to celebrate it with her friends, we decided to celebrate a week earlier. And also because I’ll be in Vegas. 😛

They enjoyed the museum and all the cool installations. As for Bear and I, we had visited initially in December of 2015. For the art to be mostly the same, we didn’t really enjoy it the second time around. Well, maybe the Infinity Room. That’s always a treat.

@JPLKatzenberger #Farewell

Our office admins did such a great job decorating the office with balloons and such on her last day. She leaves for maternity leave for 3 months… 🙁

We also celebrated her birthday with the BWD crew (Babes Who Dine)…

We got her a gift card for a mani and pedi and Large Hoop Earrings that she’s been wanting.

#SafetyFirst @Pruveeo

Why I need a dash cam, I’ll explain later… but other than that reason… I’ve always wanted one. I want to share the shitty drivers of the world because I have high blood pressure due to them.

I did some research and wanted something for front and back view so this was the best bet. Let’s hope it works out!

#BangedUp #NYE

I didn’t shave so don’t mind my leg hairs if you can see them. I fell so many times on NYE, it’s laughable.

Some kept appearing after the fact. The ones on my leg hurt first, then it got blue. As for my arm, I just noticed it when I was curling my hair.

BTW, I am not a fan of Hello Kitty but I happen to have this towel wrap which I always go to after getting out of the shower. It’s so easy, most of the time easier than the robe cause it doesn’t have sleeves.

Also, I have not been that sloppy since IDK when. I made sure to let Bear know that my behavior was not usual. He laughed of course and played along with the joke, “Uh huh sure…” Basically, I don’t allow myself to act a fool when I’m traveling with DJ Mike K. It would make him look bad because he’s working. He’s a professional. If he were to be dragging a girl out, he probably wouldn’t get hired anymore, which means I won’t be able to go to Vegas… 🙁

I felt safe with Bear around, enough so that I got so shitfaced. #funtimes.

#NewNew @IrvineBMW

Bear’s car has been sitting for a while because we ran out of miles. I mean, of course we did. We freaking drive EVERYWHERE.

Bear got an email for a special… no disposition fee for the lease return before the end of the year.

The deal we got was fucking out of this world.

YiWen – Irvine BMW, CALL HIM. Tell him I referred, Duh!

2018 530i, sport line package with heated seats, rearview camera, navi. White exterior, black interior. Oh and guess what, now the interior lights have Violet color for the mood lighting. I love it!

Didn’t realize it didn’t have the trunk button and keyless until the next day when I drove the car. I was really annoyed. Now I for sure won’t want to drive his car. No keyless is fine for guys cause they always have the key on hand. As for me, it’s in my deep and wide Goyard where I have to dig through shit to find it. Luckily I have that big ass Snoopy Coach key chain, but still, it’s so annoying to grab it out of my purse so I can push a button. Who pushes buttons nowadays anyway???

With echos and Google Home Voice Activated Speaker, everything is automated!

Oh and that’s us taking off the plates cause I’m having it transferred.

#Pimple @KateSomerville

I had a HUGE pimple on my face under my right nostril and Catalina saved my life. The item below is the better version because it’s the bottled version. She had the cotton swab version to give me so I took it. Basically there’s an oinment on there that removes the pimple immediately. Basically, it was too late for me because it was growing since Kansas. By the time I came back to LA, it was already ready to pop. I still applied it and the recovery period of the enormous pimple went quicker. I have a few cotton swabs left for any new pimple that may be brewing. I NEVER get pimples. Once in a while thing. New year new me, I guess.

#TBT #FakeNews

If you know me, you know I had a close friend named Joanna who had a sister named Grace. Joanna was referenced as JO in my older posts.

This throwback Thursday post is about my past friendship with her.

The photo below is the last time I hung out with the two of them. Our friendship dissipated right after my first Paris trip.

What prompted this post was my recent encounter with her.

DJ Mike K who happens to be an 오빠 (older brother) to me is married to a really good friend, Jeannie.

I’ve followed him to Vegas the past year playing the role of his “road manager”. His best friend SY another 오빠 of mine has a golf friend who happens to also golf with JO’s husband. I was tagging along on another Vegas trip before Christmas (12/22-12/24) with SYx2 (him and his wife, my friend, have the same initials) DJ Mike K and Jeannie. SY shared with us that his golf friends and their wives would be in town too. We figured out that it was JO and her husband. I found out weeks before and even though I was informed that we wouldn’t be hanging out at the same table, they’d be at the club. I was reluctant to see her but at the same time eager to see how she was doing. It had been a while since we’ve spoken or hung out. Not that I thought we’d get shitfaced all night like we used to but fond old memories of us hanging out resurfaced.

Few days earlier, Jeannie and I were discussing about the logistics. We’d be at the DJ booth for DJ Mike K and the other couples would get their own table. At this point I knew JO knew of my attendance.

2nd night into my Vegas trip, here we were… waiting in front of Jewel nightclub, two days before Christmas… timing had it so we all ended up meeting in front of the club. That was not planned. Jeannie and JO had met once through me. They were FB friends and followed each other on IG. Jeannie knew of our history and so did SYx2. When JO and her group approached, I noticed she beelined to Jeannie and starting talking up a storm. Her first encounter was Jeannie and I noticed she adamantly stuck with her to avoid any contact with me.

Now, I’m not the one to avoid or ignore. I wanted to say hi, knew it would be awkward but was hopeful for our reunion. She was still talking to Jeannie as if they were long lost sisters. I said hi to the golf couple, and JO’s husband which all three were friendly and pleasant. I walked over to JO as she was still chatting Jeannie and laid my fingertips at her arm to get her attention. We awkwardly hugged and I said hi, she said “you look cute as always” and I turned to say hi to the 3rd girl they were with just realizing it was Grace.

Now, I get it. As sisters you have the sister’s back. However Grace’s attitude was uncalled for. I was surprised to see her cause I had no idea she’d be there and to see her there, I was excited so I said hi and went in for a hug. Mid way through I realized she didn’t feel the same way so stopped my arms from embracing her and walked away. She literally just stood there, didn’t open up to me, arms by her side. Now imagine this. Someone has their arms around you about to hug you, not being in contact with you yet… and you just stand their as if you’re blind to them. This is why I stopped. Almost like someone pushed rewind. Lol

I walked away and that was that. We walked into the club and they were placed away from the DJ booth. I did my usual dancing and drinking and tried not to think about the encounter.

I was a bit saddened by her behavior. Not Grace but JO’s. I was hoping we could smalltalk a bit. “How are you? What have you been up to?” I was actually disappointed that she didn’t engage in the way I wanted to.

Our friendship just ended, there wasn’t any hard feelings. Something happened, trust was lost and it just wasn’t the same again. So it was hard for me to comprehend her awkwardness and withdrawal. It sucked knowing that I was the only bigger person in this situation. I wished that that wasn’t the case.

In the middle of the club, I used the gen pop bathroom because the security guard that usually opens the VIP bathroom was nowhere in sight.

The club was empty and when I walked out of the stall, Grace was walking in past me. We were the only ones in the bathroom. Not even the attendant was in sight. We met eye contact, I smiled, she kept walking without acknowledging. I almost turned around and asked, “what’s your problem?” But I didn’t. I kept walking and decided to just send her a text.

“Learn to smile.” That’s all I wrote. I don’t even know when our last texts to each other was since I had reset my phone months back and couldn’t save my texts.

I didn’t receive a text back. I didn’t even know if it was still her number until a couple of days ago. Apparently she was PO’d from the text and they talked shit about me when they got back to the room after the club. From what I heard.

I can just imagine Grace now after getting back to the table from the bathroom, “omg wtf look what Violet texted!!!”

DJ Mike K’s set ended at 2:30 so we were out before the club ended and that’s how this story ends.
