Under the Tree

Ron took a few photos during one of our trips to the park and I wanted to share them with you for Photography Friday. Don't worry, I'm doing this with his consent...and because it's his birthday week. :)

A Special Wednesday

Hi Loveyboy,

It's Monday today and I'm so nervous for your upcoming birthday. I am telling myself that this is because of the coffee but we both know that every time your birthday rolls around, I get anxiety for no apparent reason. LOL But this post is not about me - it's all about you so let me get started...

First of all, like always, I'd like to thank you for existing and being the most perfect person to spend my life with. You are so patient with me, even if it means dealing with how picky I am about everything at times. Thanks for trying to make me smile everyday as well. You have no idea how much it means to me every time we are not together, to know that I have you to make me smile. Thanks too for dancing with me at the most random places, and at home even if there is no music but the melodies our hearts are playing in sync. Please know that I will always be here for you, no matter what. Even if I get so busy, you should know that thinking of what you can eat for dinner is always in my brain's to do list. ;)

So it's Tuesday now and I'm still writing this. The last 24 hours was insane, and I know that you realized that as soon as 7pm struck on Monday and I was not home yet. All the time I was not home yesterday, I was already thinking of how I can make it up to you and to be honest, I could not think of anything but to cuddle with you. And that's what I did. Thanks for making dinner for me, I loved the gesture and of course, what you prepared.

It's the night of your birthday now, and we are currently watching Property Brothers. Our obsession with these HGTV shows really needs to be put to good use soon. Haha! I guess this is the part where I tell you my wishes for you. So here goes... Like everyone says, I wish you all the best life could offer you. I wish that you continue to be blessed with people who inspire you. May you be in such great health forever (seriously though, you're the only person who gets a one-day flu!!!). Last but not the least, may your wishes come true and plans pull through.
All my love,
Loveygirl

PS, I promise to make sure that you get a chance to eat as much lobster as you'd like again [like you did in the picture ;)]!

Influenster Uni VoxBox


I swear, I took my time with these products. Apparently, going to school really does affect your free time. LOL So here's what I got...


Pilot Acroball
You know when they say don't drop your pen so it doesn't blot? I guess in the shipping process, the box got shaken and dropped that the ball of the pen I got was not turning evenly. Boo. I loved that the tip wasn't thick, and that even if it was blotting it still wrote smoothly.


Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation in Sand
I love this foundation even if the first time I tried it, it was one shade too light. It was smooth, light, and did not oxidize on my skin. So when I took the survey, and saw the shades, I knew it was for this foundation and could not wait to get the shade I want need! I don't normally put on foundation but I'm sure this one is going to be my to-go one if I ever feel the need to have a smoother face--which has been a problem for me lately because of the ever-changing weather here in LA!

NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Forever Fuchsia
I've never tried their lipstick before. So the shade I got is pretty intimidating. It's bright...like BRIGHT.  I'm very tan so I always look at things of this shade as early warning devices. I tried it and was not a fan at first. I kept it on to see if I'll like it and will not be surprised by how my bright my lips are. Turns out, I liked it on me...just not sure about wearing it out just yet!


Impress Manicure in Control Freak
I've used this brand before and LOVED it. Its been a while though so I'm excited to have a new set! They're super easy to put on and lasts as long as normal nail polish. I could have asked for a "quieter" shade but it's okay, I'll still wear them because I love pink!

Red Rose Tea Water Enhancer (Instavideo here)
I thought this product was interesting. I am not a fan, and don't really buy products similar to this one but I'm glad I got this and finally got to try it. The darkness of the concentrated liquid got me a bit concerned, and got me thinking what in the world are the chemicals in this thing (scroll down for a picture). It tasted normal and I'd use my sample again but like I said, I don't but products like this because I'd rather drink water.



I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Foodie Adventures: Farenheit LA Pizza

Number one thing I liked about this place is that they are friendly. Of course, I would love that thing about them. Second is that they were not kidding when they said "wood-fired."I watched one of their crew members stick the wood into their "portable" brick oven and put our pizza in there. The pizza is also made fresh! Yep, saw them make it in their little kiosk at the night market.

We got the Carnivore pizza for $9. It has red sauce, mozarella, peperoni, sausage, bacon, red onion and oregano. The pizza had a thin crust (my fave!) and had the perfect amount of toppings on it. Hopefully, the good quality of their food stays consistent.


My favorite part of the pizza? The CHEESE.


Here's the link to the restaurant's website: fahrenheitla.com.

[Food] Photography Friday

I always tell myself and my family that I should be a food photographer. I love food. I love taking pictures of them. I mean, you know. But times have changed and everyone has become a food photographer so let me just show you the two scrumptious desserts we shared with the family during one of the weekends in March. :)

Evil #1: Tiramisu
Evil #2: Cheesecake
