Petrossian Restaurant – Caviar & Foie Gras

Petrossian Caviar

Sunday is usually my family day, but since my father was in Japan, my mom told me I didn’t need to attend the weekly brunches my family and I have. Instead I had a birthday brunch for one of my close friends Anna at a French Cafe called Petrossian. They are known for their caviar and it was delicious!

Blow Dry Bars – Experience

blow dryIf you are a glam girl like me, you probably have stepped into a blow dry bar before. Blow dry bars are quick salons where you go in, get your hair washed, blow-dried and styled. No cutting is involved and most blow dry bars don’t do cut/color. The one that I usually go to and I am in LOVE with this blow dry bar is BLOWN on Canon. I have a girl named Jackie who does my hair and she is my go-to favorite blow dry hair stylist. I have gone to her probably like 20 times and I am in LOVE with the way she styles my hair!

I do this thing called meal prepping, where I basically make small meals, a bunch of them to eat throughout the week. I usually do it every Sunday and Wednesday evening because my Sunday meals would run out by Wednesday and by Sunday my Wednesday meals are out!

Red + Black

RED AND BLACK ARIKA

 

As you guys get to know me and follow me, you will see that my #1 go to outfit when in doubt is ALWAYS, a pencil skirt and a crop top. The reason why is that, you can never be underdressed in a pencil skirt, nor you can never be super overdressed because pencil skirts are traditional, chic, and standard. Some ladies wear it to work, some girls wear it to lunch, and some just wear them every single day like me.

IMATS weekend was everything! Every January, IMATS (International Makeup Artist Trade Show) is held in Los Angeles, usually at the Pasadena Convention Center. There they have tons of beauty companies that showcase their products, but it is also a huge meet-up of a bunch of YouTube, and now instagram beauty gurus and makeup fanatics! I try to make it all the time, and since last year I went on a Saturday, this year I decided to go again on a Saturday, I think that is the best day to go!

Sheer Dress – Yay or Nay?

Black Sheer SideI was actually really scared to wear this dress! I thought it was a little bit non-traditional and kinda crossing the line. But I wanted to get it! I really was waiting to bust it out in like Miami or something but I decided it is sort of a winter item, with the longer look,  so I figure I wear this to an event full of glamour girls and gay guys who appreciate this type of of risque taste! I wore it to a makeup party during IMATS weekend for Mac Daddyy’s release of his own line of Morphe Brushes!

White Playsuit – Sisters The Label

White Romper Sisters the Label Arika Sato

Today was a sunny day in LA. Even though it’s winter, it was like 73 degrees Farenheit! I decided to take out my summer clothes and I found this cute white playsuit. I got this playsuit from Sisters the Label. It is an Australian brand, and can you guys please explain why there are so many cute brands from Australia?! It’s a one size fits all and it fit me great! If you are smaller, I have a 24 inch waist, you just have to wrap it around multiple times. There are 12 ways to wrap it and I decided to wrap it the halter style! I paired it with my go-to favorite Nudist Sandal by Stuart Weitzman. The sunglasses I am wearing are the Bluebird 2 from Dita.
