Hey lil mama, heres the hot goss.
I recently had my birthday week pass and it was a pretty nice one because it was a long weekend of “treat yo self”.
The day before the big day, I went and got myself a special foaming cleanser and skin peeling gel by OHUI and CARE ZONE respectively. I’ve only been using it for a few days now, but I can just FEEL I’m becoming a new person– mostly because the peeling gel is accelerating skin cell turn over on my face. On my birthday, I went to have a fancy schmancy lunch with my mom and made a pit stop at ULTA. In addition, my dad got me a Korean bakery style cake which was pretty good (all left overs were consumed by me straight off the platter — its my birthday what was I supposed to do??) Please take note of our colorful food adventure below.
I mother fucking love ULTA. I can shop for drug store brand stuff like NYX and then go look at high end make up just by walking over to the other side of the store. What a time to be alive. I got a handful of new products (to be mentioned in a separate post) and I’m having fun trying them out!
The day after was one to remember. It was Parks and Rec themed!
First stop, WAFFLES.
Unlike Leslie, I opted for a more savory meal of chicken and waffles. It was cute, it was delicious, and I got to be with my personal Ben Wyatt.
Second stop, SCRAPBOOKING.
Today’s special activity was couples scrapbooking. As you all know, Leslie is a jack of all trades but jackiest of all trades, (oh wow. I won’t ever use that phrase again) is defs her scrap booking. It’s never come up in the show but you know damn well Ben got a crash course in scrapbooking. I wasn’t given any indication of what we’d be doing that day, but my money was on Color Me Mine (you go paint ceramic plates, cups, figures, etc, they glaze/fire it for you and a week later you get to take your creation home). My guy got crafty with it (see what I did there?!) and decided that scrapbooking posed less of risk to his hands getting wet with paint or sweat from the pressure of having to paint. I was gifted with a huge empty scrapbook, over a hundred printed photos spanning the last few years, and other art supplies. We don’t have any experience scrapbooking, but it was fun to slap pictures together loosely based on a theme and doodling all around the page.
Third stop, HOLDING HANDS AND MAKING OUT.
This wasn’t a planned activity, but just like Leslie and Ben, we are also guilty of being sickening-ly lame in private.
Fourth stop, THE THIRD ST. PROMENADE.
I wanted to go to Sephora and pick up a gift my friend had bought me– the MILK Blur stick!
We also went into a Puzzle Zoo where the nerd inevitably came across the Star Wars section. After the year Ive been through, and the support I got from him, I figured he should get a gift too. So he got action-figure-comic-combo that I know nothing about, but he loves it which is all that matters.
LAST stop, FAT SALS & THE GOOFY MOVIE
I walked past a family eating fries somewhere along the Promenade and grew super duper envious. Like the birthday Tsar I am, I immediately barked that I demand french fries to be part of my dinner. Instantly, Fat Sals came to mind. It’s basically as close you’ll get to a Paunch Burger in health food crazed LA. They put french fries, mozzarella sticks, and chicken tenders IN their mother f-ing sammies. We got it as take out and inhaled our greasy lard bombs at home, while I introduced the magic that is the Goofy Movie to my sweetheart. Powerline is my JAM, BREAD, AND BUTTER.
22 was a rough chapter in my life. If this was police action movie, it would end with me in a wife beater, multiple cuts on my face, with a parks and rec themed itinerary.
Birthday haul coming next!!
P.S. I met Lil Sebastian at the Pawnee Harvest Festival
