Victoria Secret Sports Bra Review

Hi Gorgeous! Recently I received the BEST INFLUENSTER BOX EVER! Which is a set of victoria secret sports wear! It’s really awesome because I always wanted a nice set of work out outfits. One reason why I never really bought work out bras before is because they really flatten your boobs!!! As I am sure you are aware as well if you ever try on one or seem anyone wearing one. I know It’s more comfortable to work out when your boobs are stable, but I think maintaining a nice shape is important too, after all, we all work out because we want to look good and feel good right?  Especially for smaller boobs girls & ladies!

So now I receive this, before I even try on, I can tell I will like it already.

They also included many coupons that was awesome and I shared with my friends =) 

The Bra size is made for you as the same as your normal bras. So whatever bra size you wear, you can pick the same one for the sports bra. If you are not sure what size, you can go to any victoria secret store and get yourself measured for free! I have been to their events before and also got myself measured.

Some details image of the items I received. 

The tights is super fitting. although it also includes an elastic, but really no need for me. 

What the sports bra is made for: 

A truly Incredible maximum support sport bra that’s perfect for running, boxing and high-impact workouts. With Body-Wick fabric to keep you cool and dry, and bonded, seamless technology for extra comfort. Plus, a super-soft elastic band and racerback. Get a runway body in performance workout gear from Victoria’s Secret Sport.
  • Maximum support
  • Breathable padding with wicking liner to keep you extra dry
  • Concealed wire for cushioned support
  • Padded straps and bonded, seamless technology that eliminates irritation
  • Super-soft elastic band for comfort & movement
  • Cushioned, adjustable back closure
  • Body-Wick keeps you cool & dry
  • Perfect for running, boxing and cardio
  • Machine wash. Tumble dry.
  • Imported. Solids/prints- body: nylon spandex. Mesh insets: polyester/spandex. Marl- body: polyester/elastane. Mesh insets: polyester/spandex

The fabric and make is excellent. Now let’s try on to see how I feel.

This is my funny yoga pose. ok, no actually I don’t know much about yoga, but I like doing it. ha. 

After trying this one, I have to say I really like it. It holds the shape most of the time. Although sometimes when I was doing some really stretching poses, it seems like it would be better if the bra sticks closer to the skin, so I won’t be exposed. Other then that, I am satisfied with the outfit, material is excellent &  I don’t really have to do #SportsBraBreakup because I never found one I like before until now! VS also has so many different styles of support and design for your sports bra!!!

Lot of great fits of different needs and varies sizes, which one do you like?

I hope you like this review, leave me a comment to let me know what you think. 

This is a sponsored blog post. Influenster provided me with complimentary Victoria's Secret products to test and review as part of a contest.

#Bachelorette Party + #FoodPorn

No, it’s not mine. haha but for my BFF’s bachelorette party. This is actually my first time attending a bachelorette party. Previously everyone I known who got married never had one. Or maybe they did but did not invite me. lol.

( I actually have a lot of images, scroll down!) 

This bachelorette party included a lot of girls who are close to my BFF, but I am not close to all of them. & I always felt like I am sorta anti social where I only stick to people I know... but you know what, I think it’s kind of the same for everyone else. You can clearly see how people naturally divided into their own groups. lol.

Anyways. So a bunch of us girls arrived friday night, first we went to the Drai's club

Some girls got drunk already, and I was really out of the loop on what’s going on. One of my friend grab me to join these guys but I had no idea if she knows them of not. I felt like I had to protect her, since she seems pretty drunk, but she was still able to tell me that she actually knows them. ( although I did not really believe, since she was drunk... lol) The guys keep telling us to go to their table, and since the music was so loud, I couldn’t tell which table and just follow the pointing and gesture. when we got to one table, this girl told us that we need to leave because it’s HER table. and I thought. WTH? Do these guys even have a table or not? Turns out that their table was the table behind, and instead of going up the stairs, ( which is right next to us) they want us to climb through other people’s table... which is lame. Before I could figure this out, the security was yelling at us to get out, which I was a bit freaked out since my friend was already kicked out once for being too drunk....

Finally when we got to the guy’s table, I was still concerned and want to drag my friend away, because I don’t really believe she knows these guys. & she was still drinking more.... Eventually I did drag her away, and we finally re-grouped with the rest of the girls. The thing is, the rest of the girls joined a group of strangers table, which I did not know about. I assume someone knows someone here or something..... We were all together and the guys were trying to talk to us. One of our friends is very protective and keep telling the guys to get away. Eventually the guys got mad and told us to leave... since we were hogging their table but not talking to them.. lol... I guess it could be a different situation if any of us were available.... After all this, we still stayed a bit, n then we decided to leave.

ok yeah, I know no pictures here ‘cause I didn’t really take any. & when I was checking out my friend’s photos I also realize I am missing in a lot of photos.. lol.. oh wellz. 

The next day, we went to encore beach club. It’s pretty nice, although a lot of people and no where to sit or to put down our stuff. You can check in your items but we still need a place for towels, shoes and such. Someone ask how much are those sitting areas and we were told it’s $5000. like WTF, this club don’t even have professional dancers and stuff and they are charging $5000 a table? I guess you’ll have to be really rich to book and table, and people will come to you because you have a table and that means you are rich.. lol. 


Since it’s a club it’s of course too crowded, and pools are not meant for swimming, instead people are here to look “hot” I guess. Which is fine, but I think the club atmosphere could be a bit more high, since most people are not really moving with the music that much. There was some fun when some girls decide to go on the stage to dance. =P

Afterwards we all went to the hotel, rest and change for dinner. We went to Delmonico Steakhouse. The bride to be was wearing all white with a crown, and the rest of us wearing all red. It was funny because we didn’t know there is a “ Miss Asian” pageant thing going on at the hotel during the same weekend. & people keep mistaking us for being the pageant girls.... haha.

Delmonico Steakhouse
The Venetian, 3355 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
(702) 414-3737

The filler bread was really good, I ate a lot of it!


The menu is on the expensive side, for me anyways. I am the type of person who likes to eat multiple small dishes in one meal, rather then just a piece of large steak. So I decided to order the ahi.

This is actually an appetizer, so it’s quite small. I guess my previous experience with the ahi appetizer at the Yard House give me unrealistic expectations now. I think the ahi at the Yard house is at least 5 x bigger then what I have here. The dishes’s image I saw on yelp was also unrealistic I guess because of the angle. Even though I wasn’t full, I think the ahi did taste great.

Afterwards I went gambling, I didn’t really win anything, just re-learned how to play the dice game. lol, I only play one game in vegas and I always have to relearn it when I am here. Previously I actually always won something, not big, maybe like $80. This time... nothing. lol. I am a true believer with luck when it comes to gambling, when you don’t feel it... don’t bet on it!!!

At the end of the night, we went to high roller ferris wheel. The ride is 30 minutes, which I knew would fly by because us girls just want to take pictures the whole time.

High Roller
3545 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
(702) 322-0560

waiting for our cart

The cart actually never stops, so you have to run in! Which was quite a bit scary since us girls were all dress up n in heels. I previously looked at their website, and it was suggesting that we could have party in the cart, so I was assuming that we would have the cart to ourselves, especially since we have a large group of people. But no, instead, we were randomly included with two other parties. The thing is, it was late at night, there was barely any people... and the cart behind us was EMPTY.... so I don’t understand why we didn’t have the cart to ourselves... the other group was a group of guys celebrating a birthday I guess. They got really high seeing so many girls and try to talk to us the whole time. The 3rd party was just a quiet couple. $35 per person for a 30 minute ride, I really don’t recommend it. The view was nice at night time, but not able to have our own cart was quite lame. My friends and I did have fun taking pictures though. Although I think I really need to upgrade my phone now, all the photo looks so horrible compare to my friends phones. lol

Although here are some views for you to consider: 

On the third day it was time to go home. I already split up with my girlfriends and just hang out with my hubs. I was happy that I finally get to sleep in a bit, since I feel pretty exhausted from the previous days, especially riding to vegas and now going back is not fun for me. After checking out the hotel we decided to go to a sushi buffet : 

Sushi House Goyemon
5255 S Decatur Blvd #118, Las Vegas, NV 89118
(702) 331-0333

All the rolls I ordered are half order. 

Pastel roll

Forgot the names, but I just read the description, If it has salmon, tuna, avocado or cheese... I love!!! 

Spider Roll

My first order was a bunch of rolls, because I was stupid n forgot that nigiri sushi means the sashimi on top of sushi rice, which is what I really want to order. I didn’t realize that until the first round of sushi rolls, so then I order a bunch of nigiri sushi, but really much less then what I want!

So before we ordered the Nigiri Sushi we ordered the poke’s!!

This is with Tuna and Octopus. So Good! Although the veg on the bottom is a bit salty. But yeah I haven’t had poke forever, so I really love it. I wanted to order 10 orders haha. 

Here comes nigiri sushis!

I ordered Cajin albacore twice I think. it’s soo good ^_^ 

I also ordered a bunch of side dishes, which I love and really enjoy. I really like the fried calamari, at first when it came I didn’t know what it is because I never seem one like this! It was really yummy and we ordered a lot! 

I never seem fried calamari look like this. it’s SOOO GOOD. I LOOOOVE IT 

I think the only dish that we ordered and was a disappointment was the takoyaki, because it is usually my favorite japanese dish, and if it’s available I would always order it. However, this place’s takoyaki was not very good, very little squid inside the ball.

Strawberry Mochi Ice Cream 

One thing I love for this buffet is the dessert! Usually you don’t get ice cream at lower end ( price wise) buffets I think. Especially Japanese Ice Cream? No way! I had to order all of them that I wanna eat! I ate three ice creams ... soooooo satisfied! 

Red Bean Ice Cream

Tempura ice cream 

Overall I really enjoyed the food here though and I want to come back when I am in Vegas again! (Although please note that this place is actually quite small. ) & I guess that pretty much concludes the trip, we went home and it was so tiring having fixed butt position for hours until we reach home. Until few days later I was still kind of sore. haha.. I am old now... but makes me wanna travel even more... ^_^

Julep Invisible Dry Shampoo Review

Hi Gorgeous! I got another Julep box lately and was excited to try out he dry shampoo. You probably already know that having great hair is really the key to make an impression on any occasion. No matter what you wear, if your hair fails, you pretty much fails. Even if you are not out there to make an impression, having good hair just makes you feel better about yourself, because when you appear more energized, you FEEL more energized!! 

Here is the product 

To use : Shake well, spray product to the root of you hair then work through hair. 

When you shake it, you will hear the clear metal ball inside. Spray generously on to the root then massage the hair to spread the product and let loose of the hair. 

Here is my hair hair before...

Here is my hair after... !!!!! 

SO much more volume after! I was quite surprised! ( excuse my ugly roots..) I have used dry shampoo before and I think usually it gives a clean scent and make it less oily looking but it’s very hard to give the hair more volume. This one I think really makes my hair look less oily, more volume and eliminates oder as well! 

Overall I am very happy with the result. One small advice I would give is to be careful with the cap. I think I cap it weirdly and so it pressed on to the spray and caused a leak. After I re-caped it it was ok.

The Truth about Cooking

Hi Gorgeous. I know, I promise to blog more but I haven’t been, so what have I been doing?

Well, ever since school was off, I feel just as busy... for one, I am trying to find some intern jobs to gain experience and $$$$. For two, I been working my ass off like a super woman everyday.

Since I am off duty from school, I am expected to make my house perfect now and COOK. Which was never my strength but actually something I always wanted to do. I wanna be really good at cooking, making yummy and pretty food that’s worthy of pictures. I now realize how difficult that is. & how much MORE difficult it would be if I have kids...

You may think that cooking just means putting the ingredients together, and following a recipe seems complex enough. & if you watch a cooking show, they will make it seem 10 times easier, lol. In fact, cooking involves way more steps!

Research for your ingredients and recipe

This is so super important if you are a newbie at cooking. Chances are, you have no spices in your cabinet that will make you food taste the way you want. & of course the other main ingredient for the main dish. This will get increasing easier once you get more use to cooking dishes and know what kind of ingredients you usually use. It will take a while though.. after all, there are endless of dishes for you to try!

Buy the ingredients

This is probably the most time consuming process. You have to get ready to go out, travel to a destine supermarket and search for the ingredients you need. You will have to travel to several markets depending on what you need and if you want to save money! Which means you probably have to add on research for supermarkets in step 1...

Prepare the ingredients

Most speedy meals don’t taste that good, because a good meal is always well prepared. You probably need to soak some spice and sauces with the meal for half an hour. Cut veggies in a certain way. Wash the ingredients.. etc. Even if you prepare only 1 dish will probably take you minimum of 20 minutes.

Cook the food

The time for this step varies depends on what you’re cooking. The important part on this is to make sure you know exactly how much time you need to wait before turning off the heat, turn over the food.. etc. & knowing how it cooks when your food is fully cooked. I would highly recommend to taste your own food before serving


I wasn’t sure if I should put this as a step. I thought I would because it is the most enjoyable step, but also usually the quickist. I would say 15-20 minutes. If you go any longer then that, it probably means that you are eating too much, talking too much, or watching tv too much..... lol


I hate this part because usually after I eat I just wanna relax and watch tv. I also especially hate it when I am told to clean up. PLEASE... I will do it when I am ready!? But yeah, this part won’t be so speedy either..., all the pots and pans and plates you used, all the grease you need to throughly clean out.. ehhh. Oh, and don’t forget to wipe the table!

So yes, many steps for cooking, the whole process can take you the whole afternoon. Imagine what happens if you have a kid.. or kids? Brand new respect for all moms who take care of the home and kids.. it is really hard work.. and I am only doing half of it. I know after saying all these things you might not want to cook at home anymore, or maybe you think it’s not worth the time. Right now I just wish all the kids out there are really able to appreciate more for home cook meals. I have to say, they do taste better and really fill with love! The food is most likely more healthy for your body and it could also be a great family time.

Since I been spending so much time cooking, I decide I am going to try to have a section about cooking on my blog. Since I just decided this right now, I don’t really have pictures, but here is a peek at what I been cooking:

I handmade the dumplings! & I was happy ‘cause they taste better then usual. We did not even have to dip it into any sauce! The side salad is spread with japanese miso and mustard sauce! Yummy!

Another dish. I use left over dumpling ingredients to stir fry with noodles. =) 

So yeah, that’s what I been doing lately. I hope to post up more cooking blogs. Let me know what you think and if there is any dishes that you been dying to try to cook yourself?!

Fun Labor Day

Hi Gorgeous! I don’t know how life became so busy but I was finally able to have a day of fun this past labor day. Funny thing about don’t know what to do, even after you done some internet search you’re still confused. I think we just want to relax and a change of scenery, but we don’t have a destination. We ended up at the rainbow harbor at long beach =)

I am not sure if this would be my first time here, I know when I was much younger I quit a bit of time at the beaches and harbors but I never knew where I was. When we got there, we just follow the crowd to walk toward the harbor.

Sorry I should have taken more pictures. But in this area, we could see the queen mary in one of the angles. The sun was strong as we continue to follow the crowd.

Some scenery near the harbor

I always look funny with these...

We decided to eat and ended up at this restaurant called “ yard house “ There was a ton of people, and I saw that they were on some magazine reviews so it must be pretty good. It would have probably been better if the buzz thing wasn’t broken. We had to went up to the counter and ask if it’s our turn yet to find out they had already called us...

I wanted the sofa table but didn’t get to it. Oh wellz. The best thing about waiting is that we ended up able to order the Happy Hours Food that we didn’t know about.

& it just so happens what we wanted to order were all on this Happy Hour menu!!

So we accidentally ordered too much food..

Spicy Tuna Roll

This is my absolutely favorite dish! If I only had this one dish I would be happy! You can’t really see the tuna inside, but it is SOOOOOOOO GOOOD! With half cooked Tuna and Guacamole~~~~~~ SOOOO GOOOOD! It is in a bigger portion then I imagined. Probably bigger then what you imagine as well base on the photo. 

Bearnaise Slider

We saw so many people ordered this on yelp. Unfortunately this is my least favorite dish. I think the burgers were too dry. The fries are ok. 

Fried Calamari

Pretty good. although not spectacular. 

Spicy Thai Chicken Pizza

I wanted to try this because I never had a Thai pizza before. The sauce is spicy and a bit sweet. It’s different and I like it! 

Chicken Nachos

I didn’t eat much of this because it was just too much food. Yummy of course =) 

Soooo much dishes and ended up at $35 ??!? ( Everything is half priced) Super Yummy and nice restaurant. Makes me wanna go back right away already!!! Of course the only thing is that I am usually unavailable during their happy hours T_T....

I guess that sorta concluded my happy Labor Day. It’s a pretty chill day compare to my normal super busy days. Although, it’s now the weekend again. What are your plans?!
