Graduation @WaldenU

Wow, what a feat. After all these years, I’ve finally finished college with a Bachelor of Science in Communications.

As I struggled through the quarters, managing my social, professional and student life, it was apparent that I was almost finishing and it would be too late to quit.

Several, MANY years ago, I realized there wasn’t anything I’ve ever accomplished.

I played the piano for 10 years, played the violin and the flute but didn’t do it enough to stick. I figure skated, but only got to an axle jump. I’ve tried out different jobs, but after two years, I’d quit. I got married and decided to get a divorce…the story goes on.

I knew that I had to graduate college not only for my mom, family, Tyler (especially), but REALLY, for me.

This would be my first accomplishment in life. Hoping that this is a jump start to accomplishing many other things in life.

I always felt insecure about not having a degree, people would ask where I went to school and I would feel dumb for saying I didn’t and trying to justify why. Usually I’d blame my early marriage, but we all know the issue was the fact that I couldn’t get it done.

Now of course, no one asks where I went to school. 😛 But it’s okay, I feel confident, fearless and most of all proud.

Though my mom didn’t really seem that excited for me, all these years she would tell me to finish school and I’d just reply, “I am.” I think the whole online concept was weird for her. She quite didn’t understand the online university and I wasn’t about to explain how now. (Do you know how frustrating it is to show her things on her smartphone?)

Anyway, I am blessed to have been given the time and opportunity to finish my studies.

Now I just need to payoff my school loans. :/

Bear? Where are you?

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!

 

LAX -> JFK @BurgerIncNYC

My nail broke at the airport and I realized it on the plane. Luckily, there are several Marie Nail locations in NY so I was in luck!

I immediately booked an appointment as soon as they opened at noon after my red eye flight. We had a very enjoyable weekend… plenty of eating and drinking, we even danced a bit too!

I was able to do a couple of videos while I was out there… instead of my usual trip recap, I found a few locations to shoot at. First being Burger Inc NYC and Catch.

I picked Burger Inc NYC prior to my trip because of the instagram worthy foods… to my luck, an old friend was co-owner of the establishment…

Food was delicious, here’s the video:

So I finally edited my Diner en Blanc video and though my camera crapped out on me right when the event started, we still had enough coverage. Thanks to my iPhone!

Hope you enjoy!

@WaterGrill @SouthCoastPlaza

I came here for HH one day after a meeting and decided I needed to go back STAT.

Met my friend one early Friday evening at the bar. We ate a lot and probably finished off 3 bottles of the Cloudy Bay 2015 SB.

I’ll be there again for a birthday next week and finally sitting in the dining area.

I look forward to my next trip.

As some of you may know, I am obsessed with public washrooms. This spot had a very clean and private one… I liked it a lot. 😉

#DinerEnBlanc Prep #AvgvstaJewelry

I don’t have many occasions to dress up so when Diner en Blanc comes around I love to be a part of it. I brought out the same tutu from last year, but had different shoes, top and jacket. I got some new items in the past year that went better with the look so I of course had to upgrade!

I got compliments from EVERYONE of course on my coat. They were too distracted from my coat that they didn’t compliment my shoes, but I know everyone was admiring my style. 😛

Company’s 5 Year Anniversary! 

LDW is always my birthday and the company’s anniversary party. This time around, I was in town so Bear and I attended the shindig!

My style is emulated from Catalina. She is so generous with all her amazing finds and wants to share with her loves. When she says something is fucking great and I have to buy it, I always do. Her sleek and clean style has always been an inspiration and this dress is one of the reasons why I will always look up to her for her sensibility in lifestyle.

This dress is the epitome of the lifestyle we live.

H&M Silk Maxi Dress (only navy available, however just as great)
