LAX -> JFK

My trip to NY in August was super eventful. The weather was much better and I experienced an amazing dining experience at The Nomad Hotel. Although it wasn’t truffle season and my gf JL really wanted me to try the truffle pasta.. we figured I’d be back soon enough to try it next time! We had frosé, saw sapphires and enjoyed the tolerable weather… way better than my trip before.

My next NY trip is in October, less than a month away and another in November… I’m excited to be back with my fur!

@Sunset_Tower Birthday Celebration

My colleague had her birthday several weeks ago and I got to visit the Sunset Tower Hotel for the first time! I loveeeedddd their bar, we had great drinks and apps until the birthday girl arrived. We ended up at Skybar at the Mondrian Hotel, I didn’t stay late since I had an early am the next day.

I need to go back though…

 

Family Time

My uncle retired and we had a huge family dinner at an AYCE sushi joint in Torrance! It’s always nice to be around family and spend quality time amidst our hectic schedules! The kids got to play with each other and the cousins got to catch up! I love my family and always so happy to see them!!


Morning @Starbucks

I don’t know why Starbucks can’t set something up on their system to signify how many pumps of the sugared crap they need to pump into the drink. I always and only ask for one. I specify. 70% of the time I order, I get the full amount of pumps. In my triple espresso over ice, I only want one, actually half, but they couldn’t get it right so I just resorted to one. Can you imagine how sweet my drink it with only three shots? I hate it. I can tell immediately by the color. They also sometimes put too much soy milk. It’s should be a the color of a Lindt milk chocolate ball. #duh!

Decisions @YouTube #bvityl #pigletventures

The hardest part about editing a video is the part when I have to pick a cover. Most of the time, there aren’t any still shots I can use. The other times, I can’t decide which shot of me shoving food in my mouth is not too sexual, ugly looking, can’t be edited to put a weewee to cover the food… etc. I don’t want it to be too inappropriate, but I want it to look like I’m actually eating! These were the three options for my last video from New York. The only problem was… I didn’t screen shot it before snapping it. Dumb dumb dumb on my part, had to go back and try to find the images.

Favorite @HealthNutLA

Every time I have to go to Calabasas for work, I stop by Health Nut. I even bought their spicy dressing to have with my salads at home. The problem is, I never have salads at home.😛

If you’re in the valley, this place is a must visit. Owned by Koreans, a favorite of the Kardashians and great healthy options! But… their salad dressing is the best!

#doingJim @Equinox

I’ve really started to get in the hang of things, well the getting up and driving to the gym at 5am part. Not the stamina part. I am exhausted on the stairmaster in the ams and it may be the fact that I am so tired. I need to start going to bed earlier.

Right now, I go to bed anywhere around 10:45pm-11:15pm. It’s too late. So technically, I’m getting about 5-5.5 hours of sleep. This is when I start to think that I wish we never got rid of that twin bed for Tyler. I would totally sleep in another room or have Bear sleep elsewhere. He deters me from living my fitness filled life. Though he agrees to turn the tv off in the evenings, he always has to have a sour face about it and then be on his phone, and that screen in a pitch dark room is annoying. He has and never will wake up with me in the ams, which I find annoying too. I get it. He’s not that type of person but only because he has class in the evenings until 9:40pm? Well, to me that lazy and I hope that changes once he’s done. There are a lot of things I’m waiting to see in him once he graduates… and trust me, he knows.

So until then, I will wake up alone in the dark always, and do my own thing, he needs to catch up.
