#106- SEX and the CITY jewelry launch party at the RON ROBINSON / Fred Segal Melrose

I just got home from the launch party of the SEX and the CITY jewelry at the RON ROBINSON / Fred Segal Melrose.

Ms.Karen Meena (who is a VP of the RON ROBINSON / Fred Segal Melrose http://www.ronrobinson.com/) is always nice with me. She is the best! She has such a fabulous taste for fashion business.

Today, Karen invited me to this special event, so I decided to write about this event for Senken-newspaper.

I can’t write the detail about the SEX and the CITY jewelry in my blog on today (because I have not written the Senken-newspaper article yet), but I can share some story about the event.

During I am interviewing Karen and Elizabeth & Lisa (from the SEX and the CITY jewelry), I ate three rich chocolates (by PURE chocolate). Soooooo gooooood! I am going to have a “lady’s day” soon and I really wanted have some chocolates today, so it was a great timing to have some high end chocolates.

Then after the interview, I talked to Mr. Ron Robinson (who is a president of the RON ROBINSON / Fred Segal) and met Laura(who is a writer),April(who is a nurse, writer and fashion business woman) and some girls(we had some chat).

I got a picture taken with Karen with a red(pink) carpet style/HBO logo and Karen gave me the SEX and the CITY Jewelry bag with chocolate box (so cute chocolates! shoes and cosmo / SEX and the CITY symbols on it) . I also entered the drawing to win the SEX and the CITY prizes! I didn’t drink cosmo, but it was really “sexy” fun afternoon!

Now, I am going to write a Senken-newspaper article about this event and products.

Life is fun!

Have a fun weekend to you all!!! xoxo

#279- Happy Spring!

How many do you walk?





I saw this sign on the street in my new neighborhood, it says, “Walk 6,000 steps a day to improve health and 10,000 steps a day to lose weight. How many do you walk?”





Between “TBS TV (Tokyo Broadcasting System Television, Inc.) news program, Road Rage, DMV, LAPD, CHP, Anger Management, Google, Cold, Gas range, A DIET BOOK BY YOKO FUJIMOTO, Senken-Shimbun, Agenda Long Beach Show, LA Fashion Market Summer 2018, Gas heater, TAX Return, Google, Google Play, LA Textile Show Spring/Summer 2019, LA Fashion Market Fall 2018 etc. (work, work and work… and sick and trouble… and work, work and work…and trouble…)” and “Descanso Gardens”… I have been walking a lot… really a lot… I walked 10 times of 17 miles per day (from my new apartment to Descanso Gardens round trip plus walking at Descanso Gardens) in two months.





My weight is between 80lbs and 83lbs, even I eat a lot (eat what I want) I can keep up my current weight (80lbs-83lbs).

Title of this column: From L.A. “Slut?”
(http://www.senken.co.jp/report/downtown-la-eggslut/)

Since a few years ago, I have been noticing the egg shape sign of “eggslut” (http://www.eggslut.com) on the way to L.A. fashion district in downtown Los Angeles.

“Slut” means in Japanese “bimbo”, “whore”, “hooker” and “slut”.
“eggslut (a woman is sleeping around with eggs)”? This shocking name of the restaurant has been bringing curiosity to me.

This restaurant (“eggslut”) has a counter at the “Grand Central Market” which is also famous as a tourist popular spot, and when I drive by this place my curiosity about this place is getting bigger and bigger, because I always see a long line in front of…

#276- Evil noise vs. White noise

Today (Nov 20th in the midnight) someone broke into my apartment (my front door two locks were unlocked / my door was locked before I went to bed)…
[I should’ve get up when upstairs guys were harassing me with loud banging noise around 3:20am-4:30am this morning.]

Two weeks ago, someone came to my back door (kitchen door) with a pair of scissors and chopped my mini rose flower (my mother and my younger brother’s gift) off (on Nov 7th), and someone also came to my back door with a pair of scissors and chopped my plastic door mat’s daisy flower’s petal off (on Nov 9th)…

It’s very scary… I have made police reports about these incidents…

I have been having bad luck with upstairs neighbor for long time…after former upstairs neighbor (http://yokofujimoto.blogspot.com/2017/05/my-last-email-to-upstairs-neighbor.html) moved out, I was praying for a new upstairs neighbor who is a morning & quiet person… but my instinct told me one month ago, “you will get a new upstairs tenant who is a night p…
