I won an IG contest, which I never win anything so you can imagine how excited I was… I smelled this perfume on one of my NY trips at Barneys and fell in love however I couldn’t justify the cost. I ended up buying a Diana Vreeland bottle for a little over half the cost.
I kept dreaming of getting this bottle one day because the packaging was beautiful and the scent was mesmerizing.
I wore it for the first time today finally; I’m celebrating my birthday again tonight with my #BabesWhoDine colleagues and thought it was the perfect occasion.
I sprayed it early this am after my shower and I can smell it on myself throughout the day. I love scents and feel that every woman should be complimented by her scent. I love long-lasting scents especially and even more so when the scent comes in shampoo, conditioner, body wash and lotion.
Also got myself a Starbucks Cold Cup with Las Vegas on it! I contemplated while I was in line and when I got to the register (30 minutes later cause it was so crowded), I asked someone to grab it from the end of the line. 😛
It’s crazy how bare my lashes are when they are all removed. I swear I had more lashes than what you see in my IG videos 15 years ago, when I first started to get eyelash extensions. Throughout the years, they obviously got more sparse because of the extensions but somehow my girl manages to place on an abundant amount to make it public worthy. I would never be able to walk around without eyelash extensions, even to give my lashes a break because I look crazy!
My girl uses 15mm length, volume lashes for my eyes. It’s almost like the Ardel Individual Lashes. That is how my eyes are able to transform from bare to full. They last a month for me because I do not wear eye makeup. I feel like with extensions, eye makeup is not necessary.
I also am a believer in keeping my extensions intact with a gel, it’s a brow gel but I use it for my lashes because it hardens it while it’s brushed out. I try to put it on after I wash my face and shower.
My dear friend Catalina happened to be in the city too. Her friend, now turned my friend Heather lives in Greenwich with her family so we took the Metro North for $10 from Grand Central Terminal with Tyler and stayed with them.
I have never seen a house so beautiful. We went out to dinner in Long Island and met other friends. Had many laughs over drinks and food. 🙂
I had decided to visit an old family friend in MD while I was in the city. We arrived to NY on Friday am after a red eye and we left for MD on the Amtrak on Monday at 4am out of Penn Station. I ended up falling asleep and missed my exit. Luckily the next exit was still close to my friend’s house so we had a wait a bit while she arrived.
Julia Gulia has been in my life before I actually met her. My mom and her mom were high school friends from Korea and when I was in 7th grade and when Julia was in 8th grade, we met in person. Since then we’ve been inseparable. We had a nine year hiatus while in our mid-20s to now but we picked up right where we left off.
We got into MD around 8am and left on Wednesday at 8pm. we had a great full three days in Bel Air and it was not enough.
We catched up, watched tv, played with the children, ate and repeated for three days. Tyler stayed home with us on the first day but on the 2nd and 3rd day, he went to the TKD studio with Julia’s husband. He had summer camp going on at his business so it worked out well! Tyler met new friends and was able to be active all day instead of being on his iPad playing Fortnite.
I was so sad to leave but exctied about our future meeting. Because as teens we saw each other every year (visiting one another from LA to VA) or sometimes twice a summer, we wanted to keep the tradition for our children. 🙂
A week after I got back from London, Tyler and I joined Bear in NYC. It was our first trip together to the city. Tyler had already been there with his other family a few times and with school. Bear had to go to NY the day after we got back from London for training and we joined him on his 3rd week there.
Too bad the weather was shitty because it rained most of the time.
