So today was quite the day. I developed a new (to me) cultural stereotype. Positive, don’t worry. I had my first day at a Korean Spa a.k.a. jjimjilbang, at Riviera Health Spa in Torrance. What an experience it was; rather upset that I had waited three decades to try it out. As someone who doesn’t necessarily appreciate unfamiliar […]
Half-way through the first week I canceled the second week of meal delivery. For good reasons: on Saturday will go to see Billy Joel at the Bowl and Memorial Weekend will fall right in the middle of that week, so why waste the money? (Untold, yet obvious reason:

Spoiler alert: I failed.
Given all the temptations I was subjected to today, I can say Day #1 fared pretty well.
Summer is around the corner and although I look gaaauh-geous in bikini, I strive for better. This four-pack needs to go up a couple notches. Hehe In addition to getting back on the yoga mat, I’ll make a serious attempt to improve my eating habits. To guide me in the right direction I turned again to […]
The first thing I did when I decided to write this post was type “beauty in the 17th century” in Google search. Then I expanded the search to a couple of centuries earlier, and a couple of centuries later. I kind of knew what I was going to find, and I knew it would possibly […]
