This week has been awesome and I’m happy it’s Friday.  It’s awesome because

1)  Watched Father of Lights

2) Hours upon hours of Parks and Rec (Leslie Knope 2012!).  I’ve been trying to catch up and now I’m on season4 🙂

3) Ate Korean BBQ last night with Mike.  It was actually our first time getting kbbq together all by ourselves!
Some links:

Volere – Boxed wine just got a brand new bag

All about the colors

I’ve been talking about this phone app, but it’s my new go-to music app.

I just got an invite to Hukkster, a site that lets you know when your favorite bookmarked items go on sale!

This movie came out today!

Next on my list to make Basil Icecream from here and here.  Or, if I fail, I can’t wait to try this place!


The picture above is the Green Tea & Milk shaved ice from I-Sweet in Rowland Heights.  I know everyone raves about Class 302, but seriously, this place is awesome and delicious.



August has been eventful and busy (I’d like to post pictures soon when I get around to it… hehe) and I can’t believe it’s September already!  I’m looking forward to colder weather – I’m ready to say goodbye to pedicured toes, shaving legs so that they dont look stubbly in the sun, and recycled summer clothes, although I will miss warm summer nights.  I sound like I’m waving off hygiene in general… haha but ladies, you know whats up.

I want to relax this weekend and I’ve shared with Mike that I’d like to make these shrimp tacos paired with this refreshing drink, but we’ll see since laziness  trumps will (sometimes).

Here are some links to make any weekend unproductive, but fun:

Soothing jazz; she’ll also be performing at LACMA, which I plan to attend

Le Whaf – for those who no longer want to intake alcohol, but prefer to inhale.

Can’t wait to watch this movie

Delicious appetizer for any party (I recently made these and were a hit!)
