#Henna #Tattoo Addict

I had a Harley Davidson audition in El Segundo so I found a henna place on the way home to #DTLA. I wanted to go to the first place I went to get henna but Artesia would have been too far to get back in time.

I was impressed by her design and detail. The henna seemed different but I didn’t think it would be when it came off.

After she was done with the design, she blow-dried my hand and put a lemon juice ointment thing on it.She said it would help make the color darker.

I paid almost triple what I paid last time ($25 + $10 tip, 1st time : $10 + $10 tip) and I get it… It’s the time, effort, design, detail and all that stuff but if it’s not great quality, none of that really matters!

As I was paying (which at the moment, I didn’t care how much) the lady told me to not wash it off and to leave it alone for 3-4 hours!!! I shrieked because I told her I had to be somewhere at 7pm and I needed to go home and curl my hair.

I hoped that by the time I got home, it would have stained more than the last time. I assumed everything different they did would make it look darker than the first place.

When I got home, it started to crack and I could see the stained design on my skin. The surprise was, it wasn’t dark. It was light and I needed to curl my hair!

I ended up curling my hair with one hand, which btw, it is impossible and I’m more grateful NOW, to have, two hands. I washed it off and was supremely disappointed in the outcome. It was faint and from afar, it looked like I got a burn on my hand. It was orange and not cute. I was leaving to a party shortly and I was actually embarrassed about showing my hand. 🙁

The place I went to was Daxa Beauty & Threading Salon, don’t go here.

@Petersen_Museum #MustDo

The doors are shutting for a little over a year and I know you’ll be thanking me for reminding you to visit one of my favorite museums in Los Angeles.

If you haven’t been, it’s a #MUSTDO item on your list of #TODOs in LA.

It’s a great place for families and even if you don’t children. I personally don’t like the renderings of the new design but I can see why they would want something flashy. The museum being located on a busy intersection (Fairfax & Wilshire Blvd.), they are sure going to make a statement when it’s all said and done.

Wishing the best to Petersen Museum during their construction and hope it all gets done according to their timeline. I cannot wait to visit once it opens again!

Pain Pain Go Away

So several years I had my hand buried under a Harley Davidson during a photo shoot.

Both my right hand and right foot was stuck.

Do you know how heavy that bike is?

Anyway, they needed to call someone over to lift the bike up so I could get up.

Fast forward to today… well, yesterday, I tweaked it at the airport and not even when I was carrying something. I just tweaked it when I was changing positions and now it’s in pain!

I’m so pissed because I do manual labor and I’m not incapable of doing my best.

Luckily this hotel has a gift shop an I was able to call my acupuncturist to ask for help.

1. Anti-inflammatory before bed.
2. Ice it.
3. Buy wrist guard.

I hope it helps!

@Petersen_Museum #OPENHOUSE

I got an email asking to RSVP to their open house few weeks back and I had to add my name plus one for the event!

Hello??!?! Cars and free booze and food? Although I didn’t get to enjoy all of it, I was able to get some good eats and take a look at their space.

I’ve been there twice before and enjoyed it every time.

I should really make it a habit to go often.

Fred Astaire’s 1927 Rolls Royce, Liberace’s Phantom and so much more!

Bike Night

Haven’t been to bike night in over a year!

I went with my friends to the Arcadia AU79 monthly bike night and I got back in one piece!

I was so rusty and so nervous riding there and back.

And my new HID didn’t help either. Had my bike lowered so much that the light faces downward a little which is no bueno for my visibility.

Either way I had a great time meeting new friends and riding.
