Instamix: Labor Day

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a relaxing Labor Day weekend. I felt like I didn’t really do much with the lack of photos, but that was probably because I didn’t have time to take more photos. =P For some reason, my instagram is not saving the photos after they’ve been uploaded to the app, so apologies for the photo sizing below. 

Anyways, Saturday, I had a wedding, which I didn’t have a photo for that day, so let’s get started with the rest of the weekend.

Sunday, I spent most of the morning cleaning the apartment and got rid of much needed useless stuff around the place. Then, drove to Annapolis for an engagement session and since I had a little break in-between outfit changes, stopped by the ice cream truck for a double cone with fudge topping.

Whenever I see or hear an ice cream truck, the little girl inside me absolutely goes giddy and the music always bring back a little bit of childhood memories. This truck was a little different compared to most I’ve seen because it actually had soft serve ice cream — already an A+ in my book.


I was at my local Hmart the other day and happened to browse through the frozen section when I saw my favorite all-time coconut juice brand and immediately stocked up the cart with 10. I had at least one or two a day and was ready to stock up again. I grew up with this stuff and especially love eating the huge coconut chunks that come in each container–so delish. Although a little pricier than the other coconut juice brands, I definitely prefer it better.

As you know, I am a little obsessed with Boiling Crab and was randomly searching on Yelp to see if there was a version like that in my area. Well, Hot n Juicy came up and I was super excited to go try it out! Needless to say, it was good enough to satisfy my Boiling Crab cravings every now and then, although I may not go too often considering the prices are a little higher than LA ones. Go figure since it’s the only one in the whole DMV area.

While there, I ordered half lb shrimp in extra spicy and the green mussels in regular spicy–both were not that spicy at all. 😉 I do hope there will be more restaurants like that opening up in the DMV area and maybe the prices will be more competitive then. One can hope.

Finally, I put up my first “Get Ready with Me” video and it was when I attended as a wedding guest few weeks ago, but actually ended up shooting that day. Hey, at least look good doing it, right? Admittedly, it was a little uncomfortable being all dressed up and shooting, but I made do. =P

And that’s it. Have a great day back from long break!
