Good morning stunner face!!! What a busy week it’s been.. I don’t know about you but back when I was in elementary school, weeklong Spring break felt like forevvvvar. Now between a fart and a sleep the week has passed us by, so surreal. I hope you’ve had a good week, did it include some cuddling? Eating? Hair fondling? I sure fucking hope so!
I thought I’d do a different post today and write some good feelin’ go on with yo bad self type of shit. Get on that Flyday Friday tip…
So Monday was a good day, snacks on snacks on snacks with the ladies as previously mentioned. Tuesday was another banger, awesome day working on some biz plans for some hot shizzz i can’t share with you just yet! Then on Wednesday i wrote the 15 dresses for under $50 article and of course I was on that square neck dress from Dorothy Perkins but mid way through my checkout that bitch of a dress became out of stock. Like the fuck, suuun!? Isn’t it rightfully in my shopping cart? that’s like someone yoinking a cabbage head out of my grocery bag. not cool, bro. Of course since I couldn’t get it anymore my desire for this dress grew like mad cow disease! But with effort and work, comes fruit so after a few head pounds to the keyboard, i found my dress on a different site! Wrong size but i bought it anyways, just gotta lose a limb in the next 10 days to fit it.
OK hold up wait a minute. So I just clicked on the link and they had THE DRESS AVAILABLE in MY size! I just bought the LAST one and now its forever out of stock. Holy shit what kind of mental shopping mind fuck was that? lol. Okay so now I have 2 of the dresses being shipped to my home.. yay. Someone is getting that dress for their birthday haha. Only stuff like this happens to me! I’m a firm believer in positive energy and visualizing your goals!
Also on Wednesday, I received a text message from a random number with “Vicky?” Responding to those are always the most fun because how often do you get to play games as an adult? (and not those adult mind fucks, that’s not the same). Of course I replied back with something witty, I can’t remember what but it turned out to be a friend from when I used to work at Banana Republic… 6 years ago! Can you buhleee dat? Mind you I haven’t changed my cell number since I was 14 but it was still such a great surprise!
This is @Michelle.
…and the shoes i almost ripped off her feet. Aldo’s Preen rise collection, get familiar suuun.
Isn’t she adorable? So it turns out she found me while doing some online fashion writing research, she went through her phone list and voila, I was still there. She called to invite me to an event held at HousexGuest for Tara Parker Tait PR, Clambake Cottilion. Still no idea what it means but it was full of industry folks (not sure which kind, the pretty hob knob kind), had an open bar and loads of yummy food. Needless to say, we caught up while stuffing our faces.
And if you’re wondering why she hit me up, turns out Michelle is a contributing editor for Flare.. um, how amazeballs is that!?! That’s what I’d like to do one day, and to see someone I know doing it is so inspiring. I didn’t hesitate at all to meet up with Michelle (I said yes 2 texts in lol), she was always super sweet to me when we worked together and I could never forget a great smile. Btw, i tweeted it.. you read it huh??
Honestly, I could’ve easily bailed since it could’ve been awkward but I didn’t because life is too random not to catch up with good people, from the past or the present. Life is made up of the relationships and eggsperiences we create, and I’m always down for connecting with positive folks! Michelle is a perfect example of someone leaving a lasting impression on me, and I’m so glad she thought of me as well. We caught up for a little while then it was off to dinner with my baNANA fams for some og hot pot.
Great night, great company, great times.
Thursday was a hectic day as i had to go get my passport for my traveling this weekend. And of course I left it last minute, shake my cot dayum fat head. I literally had 30 minutes from the time I got off work to get to the passport office. While I was driving I started stressing and cussin under my breath, just straight up fuckin with myself. But I reminded myself “whats the point?” Stressin myself while sitting in traffic doesnt help the cause, so why not let go of the things i cannot change? With my eased mind and the help of the traffic gods I made it to the office, found prime parking and picked up my passport with 2 minutes to spare. The security guard literally locked the door after I got in… i made it, just on time! Again, good vibes never hurt a situation. Then it was on to my fam dins.
Sushi, curry, thai dessert, salad rolls, papaya salad, sweet and sour soup, jap chae and the list goes on. Trust me, you’d want to get it in at my fam dinners.
It was so nice to catch up with my little cousins, some are finishing their exams for the semester, and some are getting their driving licenses.. it totally brings a smile to my face just thinking about it. Fuck these kids grow up too fast. I love them to pieces.
After dinner 1, i was off to my second dinner. I went to see a friend of my sister’s (Cheebz) from San Jose and his buddy (I’ve never even met them before). Talk about random, but as always i never turn down the opportunity to meet nice people. Christine ended up joining us so we pretty much got our Guu on and had a dope ass time! Felt like old friends catching up.
I can’t say it enough, there are so many awesome people in this world.. you really owe it to yourself to surround yourself with good people, and even better experiences. This whole week was a true testament to that. If you enter everyday with a mediocre mindset, your day will not reach above that status. Sometimes i catch myself being a total cunt so its always a work in progress for me. Anyways I meant to spread the love, and not put you to sleep with all this writing!
I’m away this weekend so I hope you have a fantastic weekend. But please do me a favor… MISS me lots, because I’ll be missing you like crackhead cray!
One more photo to keep your hearts fluttering this weekend..
What I wore to the HG x PR event. And yes, I’m totaly 5 months pregnant in the first photo. I’m having a baby giraffe lol. Forever21 jumper (similar here) / Furcoat from Macy’s (BIG SALE similar here) / my mom’s wicked genes
Ending this post with wise words from Mr. Ferris Bueller: Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
I couldn’t haven’t said it better myself. I love you. Ok, bye.
