It’s been a whirlwind, after moving back to the West Coast.
I’ve been working nonstop, and helping out my parents on Sundays, so I’ve been crazed, but in a good way.
Fall is officially here (and for the first time in years, I caught a cold!) and I really wanted to get rid of spring and fall dresses, so starting today, there I’m having a giant fall sale on dresses and a few other items… 40% off!
Check it out… (if you don’t see the sale just yet, it’s because it takes a few minutes for eBay to process it). Come back later today if it’s not up right this second.
After having left the Big Apple twice to relocate back to the West Coast, I am now somewhat of an expert at getting your security deposit back from shady landlords. If you’ve ever lived in New York, you are familiar with the shoeboxes that cost over $2,000 a month in rent, dirty buildings, non-existant supers and unresponsive landlords — especially once you’ve moved out and ended your lease.
Fall is almost here… even though it certainly doesn’t feel like it, here in L.A. I’ve decided to do a big fall sale (half off most items!) in order to try and get rid of the old, and make room for the new.
I’m not quite sure when I’ll do it, as it’s been an ordeal trying to settle in and fix the things the movers broke. Yes, the lost my sofa cushion and coffee table legs, rendering them both useless.
If you’ve had your eye on something in my store, it may just go up on sale! Stay tuned via social media, as I’ll be announcing it through my Facebook or Twitter.
In the meantime… it’s great to be back in L.A.!
Moving is expensive. It’s one of those chores that no one likes doing… unless you have an endless supply of money and those wonderful movers who’ll even pack your things for you.
I’ve recently moved across country back home to L.A., and although the move went smoothly, it was definitely difficult to do. I’d hate to imagine what it would’ve been like if I had a house full of kids and their junk to move as well.
Moving is one of those things I would gladly pay for, rather than trying to do it alone (and with reluctant friends). I used the same company when I moved to NYC — they specialize in only moving between New York and California, aptly named California New York Express. They were quick, nice, and packed everything in a jiffy. The foreman was also very friendly.
I have yet to receive my furniture, so I’m praying nothing is broken. When I moved to NYC, they broke my beloved jewelry cabinet legs and a few expensive Le Cruset dishes.
Cost breakdown of my move:
I know the “Dog Whisperer” on Nat Geo ended a while back, but I recently discovered it on Hulu Plus, since I canceled my cable subscription years ago (yes, I live without cable TV and I’m doing just fine!).
I’m now officially obsessed with Cesar Millan! He’s the best.
Anyway, I’m now on season 8 after I stopped watching a few seasons ago. There was a special episode about bulldogs (as they are stubborn and difficult to train sometimes). I think I now know why my English bulldog Kensington acted out the way she did. I had her for the first two years (since she was 8 weeks old), and then my sister took care of her for the last 9 years, so she was definitely more her dog than mine.
At one point, we even submitted a video to the show, but due to a high volume of submissions, we weren’t chosen.
Ah, my late thirties. I’m officially here, but no welcome party is needed. I’m not going to lie, it’s depressing getting older, but I also have a great feeling of accomplishment. I’m proud of what I’ve learned so far in my life journey, and I hope to continue to grow and be enlightened.
I hate you, American Airlines. I can live with your crabby employees, shitty customer service and old airplanes. But what I can’t live with is when a flight is delayed then canceled because of a shoddy wing problem. Why don’t they check these things before the flight?!
