What a few pesos will buy you…

I haven’t had the ambition or motivation to shop as of late. Mind you my summer travels have been quite limited (hence the lack of ‘making it rain’). But nonetheless things seem to make their way to my closet, so here’s a bi-polar purchase haul:

Club Monaco trench coat.. so in lust with this.

Bull snapback (buy here) / Raiders snapback gifted by Cheebz from my favorite Vegas store, CRSVR. I ran into the owner in the Cosmo lobby (I stalk him on twitter) and said hi, it was my only celeb moment of the trip (me being the celeb of course).

Baby bulls jersey x baby jordans, baby things are so cute! (buy here)/ dress I picked up in LA. Its tight, very unforgiving..so me. (I found two different colored versions here, and here)

Wilfred shorts gifted to me by my maja (buy here)

Cheebz hooked this ladyboy up with some lip crack. I can’t remember the colors (coral & fuschia) but lets just say you wouldn’t have trouble finding my lips in the dark.. fiyaaah! And a more appropriate scarf to wear for my chola steeze.

This shopping/gifted haul kind of looks like what a cross dresser would get into.. ladyboy steeze! It’s been a hectic week, check back in a few, i’ll be sure to have some dolla dolla boys eye candy for you. Have a wonderful weekend everyone, i really love you for being here. Seriously, am I not the luckiest person alive ever or what!!? love you pumpkin pie xo.

FLYDAY.

Hey there, gorgeous! Come here often? (I sure hope so). It’s Flyday, it’s Flyday..and of course, it’s raining outside. How fabu. So, what have you been up to this week? Anything interesting? Anything Veeezy would approve of? Strippers and steak? It’s been a bit quiet at the Veeezy headquarters, busy but quiet.

FInally got to see Frank Ocean at the Commodore w/ Christine, Sharon and Ray!! Amazing live, ear orgasms all night! (Pre-show eats at Sunset Burger). Perfect day for some patio lovin.

Poutine x mac & cheese x bacon cheeseburger x onion rings. Not pictured was my favorite item, their vanilla milkshake. YOM alert.

He played a lot of new songs off of Channel Orange- which I pretended to mumble the words to but when he played “Thinking About You,” I nearly got white girl crazy. Amazeballs!

Speaking of balls (pun totally intended), this week I attended my first major league soccer game! Not gon’ lie, I went to see the Whitecaps vs LA Galaxy game just for David Beckham.

BOOM / You Fat Bastard. Things you yell at the game, bet you didnt know that! There were hella asians and chocolates on our team.. mindblown.

I’m an advocate of (good) firsts. My first soccer game x my first Magnum ice cream bar lol. Stick to the Daaz, they do it better. Awesome summer night for an open stadium game, the only fail of the night were my serveral attemps to get Beckham to take his shirt off. And if any of you are wondering about the score, i think we tied at 2-2. Wow look at me attending a sporting event, how cray!

From soccer to awkward networking events, there’s nothing i can’t handle lol. I hate these types of events, only bc I hate people in general. Last night an old classmate of mine (and his co.) put together their first official Bond event. Gotta support your friends in business and in power.

Think young business minded individuals getting together in a hot room (broken AC) and hob knobbing. Had to practise my up and down lookover, followed by “oh daaaaahling.” (kidding)  The event was held at the Lexus on Burrard so we were rubbin elbows with really eggspensive cars, my type of company.

The crowd stepping outside periodically to stay cool. Like I said, I’m weird enough as it is, and having to show others isn’t really good for my stock. Met some nice people, ran into some familiar faces, but I’m most thankful I ran into my favorite usual suspects:

James / Kaz (FLAGSH1P) / Derek. Best dressed men of the night, and my 3 dates :) Can’t hate a man in a well fitted suit. But peep Kaz’ shoes..

Always takin’ it to another level .Super suaaave.

 

 

The 4 of us frolicked outside for awhile, talked biz and then we took off to the most crackin’ party of the night…

Bella Gelateria!! Aw yeah, shawwwty. Again, another first for me! I’ve heard major things about this joint, the owner won FIRST place in Italy this past month. Italy… Oh, i can mos def fuck with this dude! We came at closing and the line up was about 25 deep.

Salted Caramel. Next time I’m trying the Early Grey. Thanks Derek for keepin’ this fat kid fed!

It’s been a good week overall, inbetween living.. i’ve been doing a lot of this:

WORKING! The team and I are just putting the finishing touches on Honeydrip, meetings, supplies, logistics la dee da, pretty much making sure we put forth our best foot for YOU. We’re working hard and we wouldn’t have it any other way, ain’t no substitute for puttin in time, boo. Our goal is have an early August launch so we’ll keep you posted :)

Some food for thought – If you’re not doing something… you’re doing nothing. That’s the last thing you want to be doing, it’ll keep you from growing, learning, discovering yourself, and most importantly, it will keep you from reaching your potential. We are born to do great, it’s in us to find what sets us apart from everyone. I believe each one of us has the ability to do something spectacular, whether it be providing a good deed, or changing the world. The choice is yours.

I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes:

Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.    

-Steve Jobs

Some Flyday Friday inspiration to get your mojo going. Get into some naughty-ness for me this weekend please? I’m never one to complain about the weather because it’s dumb to complain about things you can’t change, but um… I’m going camping this weekend and the rain just won’t quit. Whats up with that? So Vancouver, oh well. Food, snuggles, bonfires here I come! Have a retardedly fanstastic weekend, errryone *kisses.

Is this too much? lol. NEVER. Enjoy my mug, it’ll keep you warm this weekend. xox.

Thank you for the awesome birthday wishes! xo

Hi everyone!

Hope you all had a great weekend. To put my weekend into words would be an injustice to what it was.. indescribable. But imma try anyways lol. As previously mentioned, I cancelled all my birthday weekend plans to partake in one of my family’s many camping trips throughout the year. When I was younger, every Victoria day long weekend (my birthday weekend) we’d go camping, thus resulting in a camping birthday collab, for so many years I can’t even recall. As I got older the trips became less frequent because well, I was getting older. I wanted to spend it with girlfriends, the boyfriend, or just doing what I wanted to do. This year it was different, this year I got back to the basics of what makes me, me.. LOVE!

4 days without my cell phone (eggcept the occasional photo here and there) was fantastic. I didn’t feel the urge to check fb, twitter, IG etc. I simply left it in the RV and when I had it, used it mostly to see if I had food in my teef. For 4 days, it was spent playing with my little cousins, well not so little anymore, they’re graduating high school, getting their licenses, discovering their hobbies… they’re grown!! We ate, played football, shopped, roamed the beaches, played cards, hunted frogs at night (scurry!), rode our bikes, ate again, packed the RV for a movie night, told ghost stories, created traps to capture animals, and so much more. It was so good to spend real time with the people that make me the happiest by just being present. I really have the best family in the world and my little cousins make me more and more proud each day.

I can’t tell you how good it felt to go on with my day with no concept of time, no fancy hair or make up, no list of to-do’s … just straight chillin. It kind of went like this, get up whenever I had to pee or whenever my 17 year old cousin (size of a basketball player) decided to snore into my face, go pee, see someone sitting by the fire, sit with them.. have some morning breakfast s’mores, find an empty spot in a tent, cuddle and take another nap, get up, eat again, nap by the campfire, wake up, and then have someone  say it’s only 10:30AM. THAT IS LIFE. 

I came home last night and turned my phone back on to everyone’s birthday greets. I replied to each one individually but if I missed you..SORRY LOVE! Thank you to everyone that sent me a message wishing me a happy birthday. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for letting me know you care and that I’m a part of your life. To say I’m lucky would be unfair, love isn’t about luck. Love is about finding the right people to share the right moments with. I’m so grateful for you. I really am, when I’m rich I’m buying everyone a pony!!

You already know we ate like champs. It was like a gourmet kitchen on grass and 2 picnic tables.

Some of the kids. We were 20+ deep!  / gooey duck the size of my hand!

A few photos I wanted to share with you :) No big hoopla, no huge orchestrated party, just spending time with my peeps! I feel like I have everything I want and need at this point in my life, from here on it’s about making that gravy boat overflow. Direction, motivation and drive.. check ,check, check. All l I need is to stay focused and hungry. 25 is a blessing and I can’t wait to kill it this year.

I read this quote and I wanted to share it before you leave..

“A good leader inspires people to have confidence in the leader, a great leader inspires people to have confidence in themselves

Go big or go home folks, you get to live this life once.. lead!

Ogaaay, hope your weekend was spent doing something you enjoy with people you realllly, reallllly like. Just catching up now so we’ll be back to our regular programming soon. Ciao love! xo.

We in this bitch like an unborn baby!

Sorry, i’ve been saying that quite a lot lately and I really can’t figure out why. Every time I enter a room I feel like shouting that, too bad by mom doesnt find it as amusing..

Happy Tuesday boo face!! Hope you guys had a great weekend and a lovely Monday. I wanted to post all day yesterday but i just got caught up handlin biz nawaaamean? I say we do a quick week/end recap? whatchu say?

After a wack load of folks sent me photos of their meals at Phnom Penh I had no choice but to go myself and murk the shit outta that place! I was seriously eggcited the whole day. It’s been forever and a minute..

And it felt like I never left. So delicious.. mmm. Just thinking about it now makes my hips sway a little bit. oh haaaaaai.

The next day was a playoff game day so we got it in at St. Augustine’s and tried their beer sampler paddle things, i highly suggest it if you’re bi-polar and can’t pick just 1 flavor (like me).

I was honestly super eggcited for the playoffs bc last year we had a ball day time drinking, leaving work early to get good seats and just being total fans. Sadly however, are are no longer seeking Stanley at this current time (sad face). But we did do it up the few games we got to watch.

Of course we went to Thierry after the Canucks won their one and only game. Eating feelings is something i’m great at.

I can’t remember what I did Thursday to be completely honest but i mos def remember what went down Friday night… Aki and R3HAB!

To say I had fun would be a big understatement, I had the TOML! (Time of my life, and probably yours too). It was everything I could ask for on a Friday night. I love life!

I know, I know..I’m obsessed with these pants!

Aki / SindyBindy / Nana and Ed / Tickets to Never Never Land.

Nana and I … faded, faded, faded.

I’m not a huge party girl (contrary to what my site says) but when I do get to go out, I can’t say how lucky I am to always have such a great time. It’s really the people you roll with and your mental state. I guess a bit of gin and juice dont hurt either hehe. Aki was killin it, had the whole dance floor gettin crazy and then R3HAB got on and shit just got ba-na-nas.

It’s one thing to go to a night club and sway the odd hip thrust huur and thuur, and it’s another thing to down a dozen vodka red bulls, throw caution to the wind and do a proper electric city dance-a-thon. It was def one of those nights, love it!

This was me the next day… tryin to honey drip but with no liquid courage left lol. Paying for it the next day is fine by me! I’d say my body was in wheel chair qualified type of state!! I was just really tired and sleepy. But thank goodness for hot pot, that shit always comes to the rescue! Finally rolled out of bed at 5pm like a pro and made my way to fam dinneroo.

I swear the Le’s always do it up! So thankful I get to be a part of it. Blessed.

Dinner went until late and I didn’t feel like going HAM again so I left and went for a late night romantic dog stroll. The next morning was Sunday which meant kickin it with my OGs. I swear my g-pops is a dope ass dresser.

Got his polo gear on, old man cap fitted and of course his wedding band. They still wear it after all these years. Tres cute! Did some fruit shopping, pension stealing (kidding!) and then made my way home to get it on at the range!

This was only my 2nd time and I’m going to commit myelf this year to hittin the green more often. Fo rills! It was hard, but a lot of fun. Def a game of patience. Thanks Ray for being such a great teacher! Still a bit sore but so worth it. Overall a solid weekend, tiring but a lot of fun! What did you do? Break any hearts?

Yesterday  was Monday and i kind of dread Mondays after a big weekend but I came into work late and found these!

As much as I don’t think flowers are worth the money, I love getting them. What girl doesnt? Got home from work, passed the eff out, and when I woke up to meet the girls for food and sake, I stepped out to this:

Such a glorious evening, are we not the luckiest folks alive? cot dayum  gina!

Anyways thats veeezylife in a nutshell! Picture heavy, food heavy, and love heavy. If you’re gon do it, do it right. Hope you guys had a great weekend and that your week is looking absolutely spectacular so far. Before you leave, i wanted to tell you about this beautiful family i saw while waiting at the passport office. Super cute kids, hot mom and a laidback steezin’ dad. I was staring at them the whole time and knew I had to tell them they were a beautiful little family, even if they probably hear it all the time.

But i had so much trouble finding the nerve to go over and tell them. Obviously I’d have no issue in sending text msgs and telling everyone how cool this couple in front of me was but for the people who deserved to hear it most (them), i was scared to tell them. Nervous to tell strangers a compliment! My number got called and a few mins later from behind i saw them leaving and i knew i had to say something. I ran across the office yelling for them like a total swim fan and told them how beautiful their family was. Even if I sounded like a total dork I’m so glad I said something, or i wouldve kicked myself all day.

Kindness makes the world a better place. Why are we so quick to throw up threatening gang signs in the car when the person in front cuts us off, but we hestitate to say something nice to the stranger that walks past us? I really am going to try my best to smile more, greet those I see, and just spread the love!! Positivity is easier to spread if we all start on the right path every morning. Lets do it together!

And speaking of spreading the love, head over to Vancitybuzz to read my latest article

I’ve been getting some flack for this, to which i reply with…aye haters!! waddap!!

Anyways I’m really late for my meeting now and as much as you’re worth getting in trouble for.. mami needs a job to pay the bills. You can always find me here, and here. Talk later okay? *kisses from your favorite Vancity mrs.! Ciao, babycakes xoxo.

D. Rose on the cover of May’s GQ

yeah.. no biggy, baby daddy mug all over that cover bitch!

Fuck he looks fine suited up. Seriously, dont tell me you didn’t smile when you saw this cover photo? He has that humble charm, with that “hey what are you up to? want to go for bubble tea?” type of innocence. Like i said before, he is my ultimate dream man. Eff the hustlers and the boys that talk a little too much. D. Rose is legit.

Oh my sweet corn bread lord! I dont fuck with dudes in white pants but for Rose I would, look at how cute he is. Boy got a body.

Oh haaaaaaai.

Peep the full GQ article here. I dont know about you but I was reppin my D. Rose jersey all weekend.. like a boss.

Just wanted to share this awesome May GQ cover with you. There hasnt been a ball player on the cover since Jordan in the late 80’s, early 90’s I believe. May is also my birthday month… coincidence? I think not.

PS. This is the text I got this morning when I woke up.

Starting the day off right, thanks nana.

Anyways enjoy the rest of your day mami and ppais, i’ll talk to you later.  xo.
