Balini Sports Yoga Yacht Party

All aboard the Yoga Yacht! We boarded Nico Santucci’s private yacht in Marina del Ray, California early in the morning. The water was calm and the sky was bright and sunny. Big thanks to Balini Sports for the yoga goodie bags that were filled with tons of healthy lifestyle gifts and also a pair of yoga clothes. The purpose of this event was to showcase Balini Sports  new “Mermaid Collection”.  The Mermaid Collection features vibrant hues with dynamic design.

I Drank Water for Five Days, Here’s What Happened

Fun-Fact about me: I rarely drink water. I usually go throughout an entire day with maybe half a cup of water.  I’m never really that thirsty to begin with, I never feel dehydrated. #thethirstisnotreal I have lived 26 years like this. Without drinking much water and not having any major complications. I always thought, “This is just how my body is made.” But lately, I have been having some health issues these days and someone close to me has pointed out that I really need to start drinking water. Some of my symptoms included: Having dry chapped lips. Always needing chap-stick. Major fatigue,…

YSABEL West Hollywood, CA

YSABEL (West Hollywood, CA) 945 N Fairfax Ave West Hollywood, CA 90046 (323) 366-2940 Ysabel is a lively cocktail bar with a mixology focus that serves out of a back and front bar, plus an outdoor patio. It’s a little hard to find the restaurant at first because there is no giant sign with the name on it. It is a plain white building. Valet parking is $7. We had reservations at 8PM (I recommend making a reservation, we went on a Thursday night and it was really packed.) The venue itself is dark, and dimly lit with string lights…

Nacho Heaven at The Cove Bar in Disney California Adventures

The Cove Bar – Disney California Adventure Park 1313 S. Disneyland Dr., Anaheim, CA 92802 Phone: (714) 781-3463 (Neverland Tea, California Fun-Wheel, Raspberry Pina Colada) Okay, so… To be honest… Running around Disney California Adventures with thousands of little mis-behaving children, crazy parents, and long waits in line for the rides can drive a 25 year old like me insane. So I like to hit the cove bar to get a few (beautiful but surprisingly extremely strong cocktails) to make my day at Disney a lot easier to handle. There is usually already a line just to eat/drink at the Cove…

My Favorite Porridge Restaurant in Los Angeles

Mountain Cafe 3064 W. 8th St. Los Angeles, CA 90005 (213) 487-7615 (Abalone Porridge – $8.25) – Abalone and rice chowder.  I have to say this is the best porridge house in Korea town Los Angeles,hands down. For those days you can’t chew due to your new braces (i.e. like me they hurt so bad right now), or even if you are sick and can’t eat. The abalone porridge (전복죽) from Mountain Cafe (aka 산) has so much flavor especially when eaten together with seasoned jorim beef (장조림) & their signature kimchi (김치) 😍 The restaurant itself is very small and…
