CMYE: Cinequest VIP Soiree & Film Screening

I was fortunate a few years ago to attend a VIP soiree put on by Cinequest & I am lucky enough to be able to redo the same thing last Wednesday February 11th! We had the soiree at Cafe Stritch & then had the film screening just across the street at California Theatre :)

Light bites & adult beverages :)

OOTD: Stadium Series

My dear goodness, I haven't done an OOTD (outfit of the day) post since 2013, haha! If you're a fan of hockey, you'll know that my team hosted the Stadium Series this year at Levi's Stadium. Vinh & I were cheapos & didn't want to pay $100+ for cruddy seats so we watched at home. That didn't mean I wasn't going to sport my Sharks though :)

Adovia Dead Sea Bath Salts Review

I had the pleasure of trying out Adovia's dead sea bath salts. As you all know, I have eczema so I am always looking for something to help alleviate the flare ups, especially during the colder months. Here's the product description provided by Adovia:


  • Dead Sea Salts are the Best Bath Salts on The Planet - Much Higher Mineral Concentration than Epsom Salt! with a High Concentration of Minerals which are Essential for Proper Skin Health and Beauty 
  • Adovia Dead Sea Salt is Fine Grain for Faster Dissolving - Packaged in a Resealable Zip Lock Bag 
  • Provides relief from Psoriasis, Eczema, and Arthritis symptoms. Formulated with over 26 essential minerals the body needs for natural soothing and relaxation. 
  • Find Relief from Aches and Pains by Soaking in a Bath full of these Salts. Rejuvenates, exfoliates, and softens while it soothes! 
  • Contains absolutely zero additives, colors, or scents. Higher Level of Minerals and Relief than Epsom Salts

Since California is still in a drought & we have to conserve water use, I only got to use this product once. However, I feel like it was effective in relieving the eczema flare up. It was also really nice to just soak in the tub. The salts dissolved quickly as the tub filled up :)

DISCLAIMER: I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Madonna Inn

You wouldn't be able to tell, but I caught the flu & went home early from work with a 101F fever last Tuesday. Luckily, it broke within 12 hours, but then I woke up with the worst abdominal & mid-back pain. I couldn't even stand/sit straight. Again, I was lucky enough for that to go away after a day. I was able to spend my 2.5 year wedding AnnieVinhsary (get it?) with Vinh at the Madonna Inn from February 19-20. A great way to start off Chinese New Year by traveling with loverboy :)

Happy New Year from our hotel room!
