Oh hayyyy

A Real Housewives of Atlanta house wife knows I exist.

It's true. I have Twitter proof, but it's more funny than it is worth an actual blog post. Why blog about this? It's been awhile and I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm alive. And I'd never thought celebrities, regardless of what list classification they're on, actually took time to read and respond to their tweets. Given my affinity for the D-List, of course this is something exciting. How exciting is my life? (Don't answer that.) The next question you might have in mind is, "Jinra, praytell...what business have you with reality TV stars?"

Guuuuuuuuurrrrrrrlllllllllllll, Imma tell you.

Ever have one of those days where you get a Miley Cyrus song stuck in your head and you hate yourself the rest of the day for it? Saturday was one of those days. (Unfortunately) Then my friend Gabe responds to this by sarcastically mentioning that he can't get Kim Zolciak's (Housewives of Atlanta) "Tardy for the Party" song out of his head. Kim Zolciak an aspiring popstar? Who knew. (I obviously haven't been on board the Real Housewives train.) Lo and behold, Ms. Zolciak takes notice of it. Then, I selfishly wanted in on the D-List reality TV action so I retweeted saying that I thought the song was catchy. Could you blame me? I was a little jealous. Anyway, this happened as a result:

Yeah, not that exciting. Let this be a lesson that I probably should keep my crazed, "OMG I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU!" tweets to random D-List celebrities (American Idol Contestant Anoop Desai) at a bay. I can see why he never responds. Sigh.

On a more exciting note, I'll be relaunching GirlyBubble, this Weds. Oct. 2! I also have another Yelp Elite event coming up this Sunday that I'm excited for -- free champagne/cocktail party and theater show! I've never been so excited for a Sunday.

hey, so you're lookin' sexy

So, I don't know exactly what went on in this conversation but I'm sure it went along the lines of, "Wow, so you're lookin' good."
"Yeah, you too."

I actually had this conversation.

I am not often blessed with the luxury of actually being my age and doing the reckless things that come with being 24. However, when I am blessed, I am blessed. Take for an example an actual conversation I had with a female at a local bar whom within seconds obtained the reputation of being "Tits McGee" among my companions:

Me: I can totally eat a steak and watch open-heart surgery on the Discovery Health channel. No joke.
TM: I'm totally okay with open-heart surgery but when it comes to (TM waves her digits about in the air in jazz-fingers fashion) ligament operations, I totally puke.
Me: Ligament operations, huh. They're probably just as bad as apendage operations.
TM: Yeah, like I wouldn't want my apendage operated on. Now that's serious.

Did I correct her? No.
My next question now is, is knowledge of ligaments, common knowledge? I'd like to think it is.

all the single gentlmen, all the single gentlmen, now put your hands up...

Me saying that I need to watch Tom Ford's "A Single Man" is kind of an understatement:

The cinematography looks beautiful. Not at all as racy or controversial as I would've expected from Tom Ford. Who knows though, it's just a trailer. If not for Tom Ford, Colin Firth and Nicholas Hoult from Skins is in it. Not that I'm into under-aged boys or anything. Sold, sold, sold!

I love big cock
...tail rings. Plain and simple. What really attracts me is the power and attention they command for only temporarily existing on your finger. If it was a tradition of mine to be dishing out daily fashion advice, today it'd be to wear the hugest cocktail ring you could find for instant power and glam.

The newest cocktail ring in my excessories collection comes straight from the Philippines. My mom happened upon a local craftswoman's jewelry table at the SM Mall in Cebu and picked up that hand-made baby on the left. (That's me pictured also.) The abalone shells that form the cocktail ring's jewel were also found in Cebu. My roots are in this ring. It's easily my most favorite piece of jewelry that I own.

The extreme gold spike cuff is something I found on sale for $5. It's being sold on ebay as a Burberry Prorsum replica for much more. And yes, I just did write a whole post about accessories. Ashamed, I am not.

Yikes, how did I let this happen?

I can't believe the quickness in which this week, this month has arrived. Nothing too sexy to report. I've been made Ningin.com's creative director/managing editor a few weeks ago. Ningin is pretty much an Asian pop culture news site. If you happen to be into entertainment from Asia (Anime, dramas, pop music etc.) czech it out. So far, so good. I'm also currently brainstorming a few online community ideas of that nature, based on my interests. Something big is being planned, but I'm not at liberty to say.

I am however, at liberty to say that my mom is finally back from the Philippines. I didn't ask for anything this time around, but she ended up getting us organic, home grown cacao, dried mangos and locally crafted cocktail rings the size of the state of Texas. Exactly what I've been looking for in recent accessory shopping-pursuits!

The weekend was pretty nice. Minus studying and the month's worth of chores I had to do to convince my mom we haven't been lazy for a whole month. Other than that, I was afforded time to head to Long Beach and downtown Santa Ana to live it up with new and old friends. Jasmine finally came back from her South American trip and I was able to meet up with her. I also finally got to meet one of my bloggers in the flesh. Good times all around.

As you can see, nothing too sexy. I'm ready for the week, that's for sure. Bring it on, week!
