Top Five (5) Favorite Mascaras

A part of the “#beingjtran” lifestyles means you have a ton of mascaras tubes and more mascara tubes. What can I say? When it comes to make-up, my absolute best friend is mascara. Most of the time, you won’t catch me with any eyeliner on like most girls but you will see my long lashes…

Valentine's Day Eve?

Are you one of those who claims that Valentine’s Day is just a Hallmark holiday; that we don’t need a holiday to tell our significant other that we love and appreciate them? Yeah. That’s me. Although I enjoy the yearly dinners on Valentine’s Day, I tell Tony every single day how much I love and…

Vietnamese Braised Pork Belly with Eggs

This weekend was filled with a lot of at-home cooking and restful time in front of the t.v. But of course, Tony and I both got our gyming done in the morning so we could relax for the rest of the day. I decided to make Vietnamese Braised Pork Belly with Eggs or as my…

I Will Wait (Tory Lanez Throwback)

Song: I Will Wait (2011) Another week to an unheard throwback. This past November Tory Lanez released Chixtape V consisting a series of RnBs samples from the 2000s-era. It caught a lot of attention and people were going bonkers over these samples. Tory Lanez has been around for quite some time just like many artists…

"Cheers!" Sparkling Prosecco

If you love white wine like me, you may enjoy a nice sparkling prosecco every now and then. I enjoy pairing my prosecco with a nice charturie board, a pasta dish or even a slice of cake. Next to being a fun word to pronounce, I find it to be a very classy drink. Although…

Don't Let Labels Fool You: Plant Based-Frozen Dessert

This past weekend, I made one of the cheapest grocery hauls ever. Since Tony and I have been intermittently fasting, having learner meals, and enjoying our Hello Fresh subscription, we have cut out breakfast and snacks making our haul cheaper. Every now and then while we’re grocery shopping, I like to linger at snacks and…

New Music Friday: Future – Life is Good ft. Drake

Song: Future – Life is Good ft. Drake It is New Music Friday and I have to say I found that there were a lot great singles that came out today. One song in particular brought me back to the infamous “jumpman, jumpman” collab. If you haven’t heard Future’s new single “Life is Good” featuring…

AYCE Sushi: Little Sakana Sushi Bar & Grill

Are you a sushi lover?! Do you love sushi rolls? Sashimi? Wasabi in your soy sauce? For my 27th Birthday, one of my best girlfriends, Jane took me out to an “all-you-can-eat” sushi restaurant. I haven’t found many in San Diego so this was definitely an experience. Little Sakana is located out in Mira Mesa….

Slow It Down (Drake Throwback)

Song: Drake – Slow It Down (2009) This was probably one of the first songs that had drawn my attention to Drake. I thought his voice was absolutely unique. I discovered Drake’s “Slow It Down” as a underground RnB single. His flow, his tone and the vibe was on point. This song was also featured…

Current Five (5) Favorites in Our Kitchen

I love every part of a kitchen setting. Anywhere from the countertops to appliances to the dishes to the food in the fridge. Tony is very much aware that when if and when we buy a house, the kitchen will be one of the first things I’d want to look at. I always envision my…
