Looking for a great deal for a Sunday Dinner??? We are helping host a Sushi/Thai/Wine Tasting at Champa in Brier Creek in Durham. An excerpt from the Champa Lifestyle Website:

When was the last time you went out and listened to a great DJ, ate a complete meal, and had enough drinks to get tipsy, all for $25?

If your answer is never, then we’re here to help you change that!

Come join us on Sunday September 20th from 4p-8p for the first edition of Champa Lifestyle, our new sushi and thai tasting party!

For $25 you get unlimited sushi and thai food AND unlimited beer and sake. We’ll have reps from Singha and Ozeki on site to help you enjoy yourself!

DJ Forge Invades Malaysia!!!!!

Alright....I can admit it. I'm pretty damn smitten by my Boyfriend. Things he has accomplished, and places he has been amazes me. He is a great support for me and my endeavors and vice versa. If you guys haven't experienced a DJ Forge Party or a Party by one of the Members in his crew, You are MISSING out. Call me biased, but I'm not the only one that shares the love for DJ Forge. Just check his PressKit and look at his credibility. There is a reason I'm like this!.... Plus I made his Press Kit. HAHAHA....Okay let me shut up. Now to the point of this post. DJ Forge is traveling halfway across the WORLD to DJ with some of the BEST DJ's in South East Asia. This is truly a milestone momment for him and I can't stop relaying how proud I am of him. So head over to his site and give him some love and encouragement. He is going to rip it, and I'm sure it won't be the last time he will be invading Asia.

More Food!!!!!

Dinner I made yesterday! Got the Zuchini Puffs, Mixed Herb Salad, Spinach Gozleme, and my Siracha Lime Chicken. A closer look at the Zuchini Puffs...But before that..... Did I mention that My Boyfriend is the SHIT? Got my Birthday Present early.....Meet Rosie :)

I've wanted one of these stand mixers FOREVER!!!! All those long nights of hand mixing and kneading at over!!!!...okay maybe not, but when I have the random urges to bake in the middle of the night I will make things go by much faster :)

I made these Spinach and Feta Gozleme from Milk and Cookies! Been wanting to try it for some time....but didn't want to mess up the dough. Thanks to the new mixer...VOILA!!!!! The dough was springy and grilled up nice and crusty on the outside, but was soft and fluffy on the inside :)

Check the Feta n and Spinach inside...YUM.

Also tried Pastor Ryan's Egg Noodle recipe from Pioneer Woman!!!! This was REALLLYYY simple, and I LOVEEEDDD how quickly it cooked. The noodles were kinda extra al dente...which i liked. I threw together my own Lemon Shrimp Alfredo sauce with the leftover cream I had in the fridge! :) Delish.

Zuchini Puffs

I tried making these Zuchini Puffs! Pretty good....but I think i made em too big :P But sitll quite yummyy. Wish i could have make em crispier though!

Ryan Leslie 101- Mixed by DJ Forge

Recently FYSH helped sponsor A new DJ Forge Mixtape. This time he made a tribute to the Amazing work of Ryan Leslie. For those of you living under a rock(SERIOUSLY) and do not know who he is, Check out his Official Site. This man is AMAZING....His work is IMPECABLE. He produces, he writes, he sings, he is a smart business man....Random point.....He Graduated Harvard at 19.....19!!!!!! What I think is great is how relatable he is. Check out this Blog post of his about Black Cards. Like many people out there, he shows that he too is human, and at one point was just as financially irresponsible as any young person. In honor of his work, DJ Forge has put together a great intro mix to R.Les work, consisting of some slow and uptempo R&B tracks. Check it out, whether your a seasoned fan or a new fan: Ryan Leslie 101

Wear Today Gone Tomorrow - Designer for Smaller Price

So I found this site to be VERY intersting. Pretty good idea actually since I would have to say 75% of purchases are on impulse and you end up only wearing something once or twice. "Wear Today Gone Tomorrow" let's you rent designer pieces for 90% off the retail price, you wear it, and then return it. They then organically dry clean it and it gets rented to someone else. Could be the start of a trend for such things with everybody being so careful about spending money. Check it out.


Love my BF <3 I was talking about getting flowers for this new vase I got from Ikea this past weekend and I came home from work to these. :) Love my baby ^_______^

Anh-Tuan gave me a big bag of sample Raw Denim scraps from manufacturers that he was going to throw away. I figured i could do something with it, so I just started draping and this is what I came up with. More progress pictures as I go along. For now, I just wanted something really girly. I like all the contrasting shades and textures of raw denim in the tiers, it will be more of a impact once i finish adding the different layers. Hoping it turns out alright ^_^

Pizzza Pizza Pizzzaaa!!!!!

Tomato Basil Pizza is probably my most favorite type of Pizza! I think it has to do with living in South America and being used to always having slices of tomato on Pizzas. I love the aroma of the baked Basil baked into the cheese. Jordan loves White Pizza, so I also tried to tackle something with white sauce. I found a simple Pizza dough recipe and altered it as I went cause I had a lot of trouble getting the right consistency of the dough. It was also my first time working with yeast so I was a little hesitant. Overall, It was fun and super tasty! The dough ended up being really crispy like thin crust. I need to let the dough cure longer next time, but overall It turned out pretty good. I spend like 40 minutes grating different cheeses though O_o but it was worth it! Check out the yummy pictures!

Mozarella, Provolone, and Swiss Cheese Freshly Grated.

Nags Head, NC

Jordan ended up having to work and DJ all weekend for V-day weekend. I had a couple days of vacation to spare, and work has been burning me out quite a bit, decided to take em sunday monday that weekend to coincide with Jordan's Days off. Of course, with our luck, we ended up going the two coldest days of the week....but who can complain. We were getting out of Raleigh and staying somewhere where we had no obligations to do anything else other than relaxing and bumming. Also, we forgot to take into account it is the off season (oops...^_^;;;;) so nothing was really open. All in all, we did everything we would do in a normal weekend off together, bum around drinking and watching movies :) Just as equally enjoyable... ^_^

Our Oceanfront room ^_^

Me: 'Looookk at the Camera!!!'
Jordan: ' o_O'

And then we got it right :)

I got this Tilapia Dish at Outback

Jordan got a big fat steak..hahaha..No homo :P

OMG...SO YUMMY...BTW that Chocolate thing was called:
"Chocolate Thunder from Down Under".....**pause**
