DIY: Mini Top Hat

When you have high noon tea at a chic, elegant little restaurant, of course it’s a must to wear cute little hats.  It was my first time going to afternoon tea so I wanted to make it fun and memorable.   What’s more memorable than walking into the dainty restaurant, all dressed up and with these adorable hats?  My girlfriends and I had so much fun.  We will definitely do this again. Here is my YouTube video on how to make these mini hats:

My Little Shop of Horrors Audition

I HAVE BIG NEWS! I was going to post this in a couple of weeks but I literally have no time to focus on my Youtube channel so this is actually the perfect way to do both. Last month, I took a leap of faith and auditioned for a musical. If you have been following my blog, it’s #4 on my to do list before I turn 40. And also, my last Youtube video was actually a hint. Please check out my YouTube video to see how my auditions went. 🙂

DIY: Sharpie Mugs (Little Shop of Horrors style)

I’ve been in a nostalgic mood lately.   I was very much the thespian in high school being involved in 2 musicals and a couple of plays.   The one I will never forget is Little Shop of Horrors.   It’s not because I was the lead in the musical but because it’s just a fun, funny and quirky musical…like me! So, as I was in the process of re-organizing my home office desk and needed a fun way to manage all my crafty items and such, I decided to pay homage to my dear musical.  And thus the turning these plain white ceramic mugs into holders to hold, well, whatever I want… Check out the DIY youtube video for this article: There are many other DIYs out there for sharpie mugs.  Most of which are used to drink out of.   Thus you will need to put it in the oven for 30 mins.  For this art project, we are just using as holders so no need…unless you can’t live without baking them, then go right ahead. Here’s what you’ll need at …

Why Not Now with Min-D!

There are many “scary” numbers like 666 or 4.  My scary number is 39.  Yes, 39 gives me a lot of anxiety.  39 is the end of your 30s!  For me, it’s the last year to squeeze every ounce of immaturity out before the start of the dreaded 40s.  When you turned 30, did you feel old?  I sure didn’t.  All the way up to 38, I was like, “I can still HANG with the 20-year-olds”.  But now, I can’t help but notice white hair, dimples and brown spots spreading through nukes and cracks of my body like chicken pox.  And where did all my pumped up, hyper sensitive adrenaline run off to? Nowadays, it’s a win just to go hiking once a month. Ahhhhh…the dirty signs of growing old.  I turned 39 a couple of months ago…I’m totally scared. I’ve always lived my life willing to put myself out there and experience new things. So shouldn’t I know my true passion by now? I am a 39 year old wife, with no kids, a …

My First YouTube Video! 3 Days in New York City!

My girlfriends and I went on a spontaneous trip to NYC on Memorial weekend.   I booked this cute apartment on AirBnB perfectly situation in the upper eastside.  From the pictures on AirBnB, the stairs in front of the buildings reminded me so much of the intro to Laverne & Shirley.   I love that song – “Making Dreams Come True”.   I couldn’t help myself, I just had to make my first YouTube video with Laverne & Shirley theme song covered by yours truly.   Check out it out and please comment or subscribe or both!  And then check out some of my favorite places in NYC below to get ideas for your next trip to NYC! Food: Gray’s Papaya – Great hotdogs and the papaya drinks…YUM. Levian Bakery – Must try it, the muffins are on steroids! Things we did: Silent Disco @ South Street Seaport – I never knew dancing with headphones with a bunch of strangers with their headphones can be such a fun experience.   I seem to concentrate more on my own awesome moves than people watching which …
