Dear mom, I decided to go blonde.

Yes friends, as hard as it may be to believe, asians can go blonde too. It takes a while, but it's possible. But before you freakout everybody, this is not me. Hah. This is a friend/client of mine that stuck with me from beauty school! I did her hair a few times during school and now that I've graduated, she followed me to my salon in downtown Seattle. So loved :)

Her hair was pretty damaged/ dry prior to her cut and the overall shape was all grown out. She has a lot of hair so I decided to give her a ton of new layers to create some variety and movement in there. In the end, she loved it and so did I. 

If you're in the Seattle area and need a cut, let me know! <3

 Proof that I still have my same dark hair:

Sorry I freaked you out mom.
On a side note, it's Sunday and about that time for a nap.

bye byeeeee <3

I missed my bus

I work in downtown Seattle and luckily for me, there's a bus that comes right by our apartment. It's convenient because it goes straight to downtown and drops me off just a few blocks away from work. No transfers for me! But it only runs for a few hours in the morning, and a few hours in the evening. The other week, Jerry had a day off from work but I didn't so it was one of the very few times that he would get to sleep in while I went to work. 

Well, that's how it was supposed to go. But I kind of missed my bus. My bus stop is about 7 minutes away (walking) from the moment I leave our apartment. And that particular day, I was about 20 seconds too late. 20 seconds! As soon as I got to the top of the hill, I saw my bus stop & my bus driving away. NOOOOO. So I called Jerry, woke him up, and he took me to the nearest park & ride to catch the bus from there. He got to sleep in for a total of 7 minutes and 20 seconds that day :)

Weekends. I don't know how to blog anymore.

So I realize I've been the worst about blogging. Part of it is because it takes a lot of time and of course I'm just sooooooooooooo busy from being busy.  Not really. That's definitely just an excuse. I think I've started to fall out of blogging to be honest. Or maybe I'm just in a funk. A year long funk. Do funks even last that long? 

Something that's caught my attention though is vlogging! You know, video blogging. On youtube and stuff. I used to be super into making short clips and cheesy videos in high school but never pursued it because I didn't know how. I still don't know how. But now I'm thinking, "hey maybe this is my new thang." But as I move into vlogging, I think I'll still try to incorporate the blog as well. Thanks for sticking around you guys :) changes to come I guess.

But before that, here's some pictures from the past few weekends.

Jerry became a pilot. He didn't really but doesn't he look like one? 

Work decided to feed us and a few of Jerry's colleagues an awesome dinner. They graduated from a special 2-year program at work and also, they're just really awesome. Food was pretty spectacular too. Jerry and I always try to get different entrees so that we can takes bites of each other's food. Perks of having a significant other! Also, Jerry gets to finish off what I don't eat.

The Fourth. Jerry's co-worker who also happens to be from Hawaii invited us over for a July 4th potluck. People go crazy with their fireworks around here. Like... spending $20,000 on fireworks kind of crazy. Seriously people. 

Mariners game. Jerry's uncle invited us to a Mariners game and it was soooooo fun! The Mariners got killed but we were just two or three seats up from the field so getting hit by a baseball wouldn't have been surprising. It was also in the 90s that day. I got a watch tan. 

Did you know that Mc Donald's soft serve ice cream is suuuuuper amazing? Because it is. Especially on a hot summer day when you don't have ac in your car. I don't even know how they make it so soft and creamy. We also looked up the nutritional facts and it only has 165 calories or something like that. That's not bad for Mc Donalds. Just in case you were wondering.

I'm trying to use my creative juices.

Hi bloggy friends. Turns out I got 2 weeks off from work so I decided to make another videooo. Trying to be productive instead of a couch potato. Even though that's one of my favorite things to do. You know, be a couch potato. Most of these sunglasses / readers are extremely affordable and still some of my absolute favorites. Enjoy! :)

oh and if you like it, give me a thumbs up or comment please?
it helps with morale.
hah :P
