Blue & silver nails with Black Lace

I didn't notice how much I liked this set until after I was cropped the picture. I lovee it... my favorite set so far. I love the blueish silver, so pretty. The only complaint I have is how I made it really thick. I think for longest time I've been making nails really thick because I often get complaints of it chipping or breaking, but imo you shouldn't be lifting or doing hard labor when you have beautiful nails. At least that's what one of my customers said so I'm trying to make my acrylics thin because thin does look more natural. I, now ask people, "thin or thick?" I prefer mine in between.

Some of these pictures were taken with my D60. WOoohoo... pretty? :) I think so.

I want them on my fingers!! :(

My birthday

Posted by Jen Ko at 12:03 AM 2 comments Links to this post
I started off my 21st birthday in June with a box of fresh Santa Barbara uni. My brother is a seafood wholesaler so it was really fresh. :) Uni is the best!!!!!

Then I got my birthday cake which were next to four very big candles because my sister thought we didn't have birthday candles so they lit candles we use when there's an electricity outtage. It was a watermelon cake from Baskin Robins :)

The next day J took me to San Diego.
We stayed at the Westin for only $100 per night. The tip is to google, "priceline bidding." and also go on forums like www.betterbidding.com to see what is available for the price. There are some sweet deals although you can't choose which hotel but you get to choose from 2 star hotels to 4 star ones. We got a 4 star hotel that usually goes for $230 per night. Westin even allows dogs but J told me that Momo would just ruin our fun :(

The Westin we stayed at was right next to the Horton plaza and also one street down from the restaurant we ate at which was called, "Blue Point."

my first drink at 21.

bread - :( no good.

On my birthday I made J eat two oysters!! :) I remember there were hama hama, pacific(?) and I can't remember the last one. My least favorite were the hamahamas. They are quiet fishy and it's much harder to get used to the taste.

Lobster Bisque - I'm still having a hard time adjusting to cooked wine. J really liked it though.
J's dish - I couldn't remember it very much.. nothing spectacular.
New York steak - Better then Mastros... SERIOUSLY!!!

All I have to say is Blue Point was surprisingly more expensive then I thought. My steak made up for it though, our server was snobby. I think maybe because we were the youngest couple there that night. She was just so "whatever" with us.

The next day J and I woke up super late and rushed to the museums. We, of course ate lunch first!! & let me say it was the best lunch I've had for awhile. Really good, but def. not cheap. I never knew sandwiches could taste so good.

Corn Soup - soo good :) I wish I lived in San Diego..
BBQ pulled pork sandwich - this was seriously the bombdizzle. I kept stealing bites from J.
a bombdizzle view for you.

Blue cheese burger - hands down best burger!!! so juicy...

Delicious lemon bar.

Our lunch came out to be almost $40 including tax and tip. Worth it, and I want to thank the information desk for introducing J and I to this place!! :)

my face only looks bigger then J's. It's really about the same, I Have a big head..

J likes space Ice cream, I don't get it.. it's not even cold. It taste like candy and they charge me $4 for this??

I also got a baggie from my sisters. :)
