Victoria Ly | Loading Docks

I had another shoot with Victoria Ly (@victorialamode) a few weeks ago. This time around, something was different about Victoria. She had more positive energy, sex appeal, and confidence in front of the camera compared to our first shoot. She was nailing down her poses left and right, and she just blew me away. If there was a Most Improved Fashion Blogger Award, she’d win it. We spent the whole day together in Potrero Hill and then Ocean Beach for bikini shoots. See more details of Victoria’s outfit on her blog post: French Feelings.

Pokemon Go is Life

Okay so I didn’t want to jump in on the craze during the first few days of the Pokémon Go release, but right after I started playing it, I couldn’t stop! This game is so fun! Where was this all my life? I’m actually going out there and walking. I once walked home instead of taking Uber so that I could catch Pokemon along the way. And just yesterday, I made my nieces go to the public park with me so I wasn’t by myself playing Pokemon. I also spent most of my time catching Pokemon at my friend’s wedding (click here). As part of my obsession, I’ve decided to incorporate Pokemon into my fashion and foodie shoots! Hope you like them!

Krys Khloe | Summer Lookbook

It was time for another summer shoot with Krys Khloe, and we decided to hit up one of our usual spots in West LA near Koreatown. It was a lovely day, not too blazing hot as LA is known for, and with a little breeze. This was part of a five look summer lookbook shoot that we did! The video is already out too! Check it out on Krys Khloe’s YouTube channel: 5 Days of Summer.

Adventures with Catherine: CatCon & KBBQ

Two weekends ago, Catherine Pham (@venustraphobic) trekked to LA for CatCon. Yes, believe it or not, there is a convention about cats! We had tons of fun checking out the booths, especially the Arm the Animals booth where we we showed Fyuses to cat lovers and gave out free t-shirts. Then we wandered around and took photos at random photobooths. I got Catherine a Pushkeenicorn plush doll (forgot to take a pic, doh!) and then we were done with the convention. We only really needed about 2 hours to get through the whole convention, and I was a bit disappointed that I didn’t get to see any real live cats. I did see people dressed up as cats, but other than that, no real cats running around.

Then afterwards, we hit up my favorite Korean BBQ place in Koreatown: Kang Ho-Dong Baekjeong! I love this place so much, it’s worth the wait. Luckily it wasn’t rush hour yet so we just waited for 10-15mins. Then we ordered a Pork Combo and a Lunch Box that Catherine really wanted. Everything was so good and cooked perfectly. I can’t wait to go back again!

Oh and we had a quick stop at my favorite boba place – Coco’s!
