THE REDONDO BEACH HOTEL STAYCATION

Hi Guys!  In the hustle and bustle of the Jungle (Los Angeles) life and the stress of work, it is not surprising that sometimes I get burned out. That is why the most productive thing I could do is to relax, revive and rejuvenate.  Over the weekend, I decided to change my usual weekend routine by having a stay-cation at The Redondo Beach Hotel. Believe it or not, I rarely go to the West side and I definitely have never been to Redondo Beach. So, I decided I’ll check out the new and improved Redondo Beach Hotel.

Review of Parfaire Medical Aesthetic Review

Hi, ladies and some gentlemen. This weekend, I decided to get the famous Forma – Skin-Tightening Treatment from the lovely ladies at Parfaire Medical Aesthetics.
. Forma is a cutting edge treatment and a perfect way to tone and tighten skin without any downtime. Now, I’m incredibly lucky that I haven’t seen any visible signs of aging on my face but a few wrinkles are starting to show up on my neck. You know what they say, prevention is better than cure.

The TRUE COST ::: Sustainable Fashion

Hi, Sweethearts! I finally watched the documentary “The True Cost” on Netflix. I didn’t realize how detached and oblivious I was. The conundrum for me is that “fashion” is what I do for a living. I started my blog when I was working retail and had two jobs and could barely pay my bills, so of course, I was a huge proponent of fast and affordable fashion. After all, I coined myself “the recessionista”. However, there’s something about watching a female garment worker being beaten with a club on the streets of Phnom Penh that can really grip you. The real question is when you’re a college student drowning in debt or a struggling artist like myself, how do you make ethical fashion a part of your lifestyle?

How to furnish your home on a budget with APT 2B

Money, Dinero or Owò in my language.  We can’t get enough and we never, ever have enough.  And how do you even decorate when you’re just trying to keep the lights on? Am I right? Like I’ve said before, I’m not rich. Even with the recent success of the blog, I still get broke broke like ramen noodles broke. However, we have to fake it till we make it. And I’ve never been the type to complain out loud. So, when I started decorating my place, I had to be rather savvy. My goal was to create a minimalistic home that looks very posh.

Malibu Wine Safari X SpecsandBlazers

I decided to check out the Malibu Wine Safari and what a pleasant experience and perfect getaway. We did the GIRRAFE TOUR!!! What an extraordinary animal feeding + wine tour of the family-owned Saddlerock Ranch and vineyard in Malibu. The destination is completely isolated from the hustlin’ and bustlin’ of LA city life.
The tour was so refreshing – We climbed in this open-air Safari vehicle with the tour guide facing us. The animals we fed carrots and lettuce to ranged from donkeys, zebras, alpacas, camels, bisons, and the famous Stanley the Giraffe!! Fun fact: Stanley is a famous giraffe that was in the movie Hangover 3! There were 2 wine tasting spots throughout the ranch with a total of 6 different local wines.

Really recommend this experience to any animal + wine lovers!! Reasonable prices & great hospitality. Tour guides are hilarious and a joy to be around. A fun experience and a great way to celebrate a special occasion.   Dress warmly and enjoy!

PS: Video of my day in Malibu is coming to Youtube soon.
