Hi, all! 🙂 Happy “Jr. Friday”!
Yesterday was pretty uneventful. We both had the whole day off and we cooked dinner at home. I did start watching Love Island though! I cannot, for the life of me, remember who recommended this show to me but I know it was actually more than one of you lovely lot (I don’t want to name the wrong people, sorry!). Thanks you guys, because I am hooked.
I binge-watched like 5 episodes in a row! I can’t even remember the last time I sat in front of the TV that long without falling asleep. If I had been watching anything else; I def would’ve hit the hay way earlier than I did!
Today, we woke up around one almost two PM. We laid around for a bit until we were hungry. I took a shower, shaved, and moisturized.
We are out of groceries right now so we had to decide on a place to go out to eat.
I wanted to try this sushi place at the Fashion Show Mall called Ra Sushi Bar because I was craving one of those chicken salads with cabbage and mandarin oranges.
I felt like an ass, but I asked the waitress if the dressing on the salad contained dairy… sadly, it did— aaaand so did all of their other ones! Yep, even the “simple” vinaigrettes… we ended up cancelling our whole order and walking across the way to Kona Grill instead.
I had been to Kona Grill on a date with myself before but, boyfriend had never been. It has nearly all of the same offerings as Ra but so much more and everything is just so much better at Kona. I don’t get how or why people would choose Ra over it… like we almost did.
We got in right when Happy Hour ended which really was a bummer. If we hadn’t fussed around in that other restaurant we would’ve made it on time.
They had quite a few tasty salads on their menu! Yay! (Even though there was no chicken and mandarin oranges option.) I immediately asked if there was dairy in the dressings even before we got seated; the hostess was able to tell me which ones did and didn’t have it right away. Whew!
Of course, we had to try their Yellowtail Sashimi for our appetizer:
It wasn’t the best I’ve ever had but, it was decent!
I had the Steak Salad; it was light, fresh, and filling!! I was so so so so so happy that we decided to cancel our order at Ra!!
Boyfriend had a beautiful Korean chicken sandwich with taro fries!! The taro fries were a first for both of us. Man, were they good! The piece of chicken was huge and meaty, the crust and sauce were awesome! And don’t even get me started on those pickled veggies.
I had been so hangry before eating and having to leave the other place; I just really went too far. I even had to muster up an apology to boyfriend after I filled my belly up… I hate when I get that way but, he always says “it’s okay” in his nice guy voice like nothing even happened, LOL.
On the way back to our car, we passed Sephora. The sale started for us low-level Beauty Insiders just today so I had to check it out! It was a gosh darn mess in there and all I wanted was a nail polish. Once I finally found them though– most of them were sold out and the ones that were available seemed dirty and used. I think online shopping is so much better because well, more options, duh but, you ALSO don’t have to worry that your shit has been opened before by another shopper!!
Speaking of makeup, I should tell you…
I just had a moment right before I shut my eyes the other night… like “I should cancel all my subscription boxes” so I turned over, grabbed my phone, and cancelled them all!
This month was my last month with the Lola Beauty Box and I was going to continue my 3 $10 boxes but, I realized I wasn’t even excited for them! I was devastated that I wasn’t going to get my Lola anymore though… even though I usually only ever liked one or two items per box in those?!
I might give myself like a beauty budget each month instead to buy the things that I really wanna try, things that I choose on my own! There are so many brands and products out there and the boxes seem to all give out the same stuff revolving around the same companies over and over again! I’m ready to explore the beauty world on my own. 🙂
OKAY RANT OVER!
After the mall, we drove to Starbucks for our espressos and I also stopped at Sally’s to see if they had any nail polishes I wanted to try but their entire collection just seems so… cheap and blah.
When we got home, I started this and smoked a blunt. Now I must go get myself ready for work. 😛 I don’t know what I’ll do about this catastrophe I created on my fingernails… lol. Agh, I don’t wanna talk about it.
