XS is a regular club we visit every time we come out here. Nothing has changed about this place but is a good standard if you want to see one of the best nightclubs in Vegas.

My girlfriend Maria just got engaged a month ago and I'm so happy to help her think of ideas for her wedding. The two of us go way back and we've traveled all over the world together like Hawaii, the Philippines and my favorite New York. Together we always have a good time filled with non-stop laughter. (We both are extremely easy going and silly especially after a few drinks) Oh, and she also introduced me to this wonderful world of blogging 3 years ago! So I'm grateful to have her as a friend, congratulations and let the planning begin!
I haven't laughed so hard out loud in so long for almost a week straight, I think I've lost a couple pounds doing so. My friend's seriously crack me up and I catch myself bursting into laughter by myself thinking of things they've done or said in that moment. I've been clearing out my room-- once again, always making space for.. something? I've been on edge lately and somehow think sorting through my junk will make me feel better, though believe me when I say I'm one of the neatest/organized people you could ever meet because I rarely have any clutter. I'm not a freak of nature I just simply don't like hoarding anything unnecessary- and that applies to almost everything in my life. It helps me remain as detached as possible. So I was going down memory lane removing things I no longer need and was highly entertained- partly in embarrassment of silly things that reminded me of certain time periods in my life. Next task will be my closet which I'm sure plenty of you will be happy about :)

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you learn to appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." - Marilyn Monroe
Whenever I dine out I guarantee I will ask the server EVERY time, "What is the most popular dish on the menu?" It's my signature question that has never failed me and leaves me satisfied at the end of all my meals. If you know by now I've been an avid user of Yelp but now there's this new app that just released called Nosh that has now replaced the need for it. This app was seriously created for people like me who never know what they want to order but want to be certain their decision won't lead to disappointment. I've been joining a ton of new social platforms lately-- Google+ and now this, so if you want to follow me on Nosh and see what foods I enjoy, this will be the place to do so!
Misikko gifted me this pink ceramic flat iron and is something I'm definitely going to be using daily. My hair is naturally wavy and though I prefer it that way on most days, it's nice to change it up and wear it straight once in awhile. Check out the difference:
Even if you want tousled curls, I think starting with a straight base gives your hair a more polished effect. I've been so accustomed to using an old school gold Helen of Troy 1.5 inch barrel curling iron. I can't seem to part with it though I will give it a whirl with the flat iron one of these days. I hear it works just as well!
After, I use hairspray to keep the curls in tact keeping it nice and light without weighing it down. Bedhead's Hard Head is the hairspray of my choice but a lot of people do like Big Sexy Hair as well. You can add a shine spray or gloss after- I like Abba Pure Shine Spray- it smells so good.

The last time I wore a long formal gown was most probably in high school for prom, which dating myself was almost 10 years ago. This dress is actually from my cotillion on my 18th birthday and fortunately my mom saved it so I was able to wear it for the Glide SF Legacy Gala. Because of that, I was at an advantage that no one would have the same exact outfit since at the benefit I did notice a lot of double ensembles which would be my worst nightmare. Sad I didn't get a photo of the back part since it dips into such a sexy deep low v but I'm happy the straps for the halter stayed up since this dress literally feels like it weighs a ton. Anyway, this event was something really dear to me since I've volunteered and served meals here several times for the past couple of years now and it's such a moving and humbling experience. If you've seen the movie The Pursuit of Happyness with Will Smith, this is the church it was based on. A lot of people attended this black-tie affair to raise funds for the programs that Glide Foundation provides and if you ever want to give back to the community this is a rewarding way to do so.
