"It's in the Morning" Sneak Peak... DAMN!

Mink Monday Road Trip to Pho 36

[Monday, April 12th] We all went on a field trip for Mink Mondays to Pho 36 in Korea Town with the Bay Area fam. Bee Nguyen (Belvedere) introduced me to this authentic Vietnamese spot a few months ago and we've made it a regular meeting spot every week. I'm starving...

After a long day of being productive, its great to see everyone get together for some delicious food, catch up on all of our hectic lives, and just enjoy some awesome company.
Pho Tai
This is one overly happy photo of Mr. Ben Wang (722 Figueroa) x Mark Marcelo.
Our Mink Monday weekly host: Mink (head chef) x Taryn x Lisa... I am sure these ladies were excited that they didn't have to cook this week. 143!
Dinner was fantastic! We brought the after party back to our place for some Jamenga (Jameson x Jenga), which is Jenga with a drinking game twist. Trust me its super fun!
Team Loser: Mink x Dominique x Alexander Spit lost Round 1 to...
Team We Are So Awesome We Never Lose At Anything In Life: TK x Mark Marcelo x Neran
Its a deadly combination...
DJ Drewbryd (Dom Kennedy) came through to visit his Bay Area fam and have a few drinks with us too.
Mark Villa aka Chachy
Each Jenga piece had consequences ranging from 3 vs. 3 Flip Cup, Give 3, Thumb Master, Rhyme Game, Rule, and others... We had the funniest Rules like no cussing, no pointing, taking the little man off your cup before each drink, calling Mink "Master", so every time anyone broke the rule they had to drink, but make sure you take off the little man off your cup first. HAHA So random but it was hilarious! Its basically a hybrid of King's Cup and all your favorite college drinking games.
Alexander Spit x Dom reppin' the Bay Area!
I was done after one game... SMH!
Of course Dom x Mink hopped onto the computer to tease a few fellas on Chat Roulette... HAHA!
Happy boy! HAHAHAHA
I think everyone was done after 2 rounds of Jamenga!
Dom was wanted to video chat with everyone on my buddy list...
What's up to my favorite photographer Chaz Cruz!
Time for my nightly Honey Bunches of Oats (without Cheez-Its) break... Who wants some!?
Macy needs to play catch up for coming late! She took 3 shots in a row... GANGSTA!
This photo pretty much sums up the rest of the night...
Thanks to everyone who came out to our first Mink Mondays Field Trip... Where or what should we eat this Monday? GOOD NIGHT!

1111 Lincoln Road by Herzog & de Meuron

Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron recently opened this car parking garage in Miami, Florida. Not only is this building incredibly designed, but it actually incorporates 300 parking spaces too. It has 11 shops and 3 restaurants located on the ground level, with further shopping on the 5th floor and another restaurant on the roof. I love it!

I've never wanted to park my car so bad...

T(K) @ Teddy's

[Tuesday, April 6th] I headed over to the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood for an exclusive event at Teddy's featuring DJ Lady Sha & DJ Quix on Tuesday. The spot was already at capacity by the time I got there, but luckily I know some people... HAHA! ;) Everyone was there, including Tyson Beckford, Tatyana Ali, LMFAO, Quddus, and the LA fam bam!

When I walked in I was immediately greeted by Neran holding a chrome magnum bottle of Belevedere... SMH!
Rhea x Sunny (Android Homme)
The hostesses with the mostesses... Jenilee Reyes!
Peter (Lacoste) can you get me a drink too?
I rolled out with the original triple treat: James aka Crazy Guy x TK x Mark aka Chachy
#morebelve please! HAHA
Sky Blu (LMFAO) x Eric Dlux (SKAM) x Neran
Did you know DJ Lady Sha was the first female to win the WMC (2008) DJ spin-off in history!
Danny Lee (Producer) x Uncle Pete (Lacoste)
Here comes trouble aka Taryn (RVCA) x Talia Sunset... Don't they look like they're plotting some evil scheme? I wouldn't be surprised!
Although we had constant bottles of Belvedere at our table, I only had one drink! :) Trying to cut back on my drinking, not so much on my partying though! HAHA Fun times!

I'm drooling...

Via: 5&A Dime

Johnny Cupcakes Suitcase Tour: San Diego

I wish I could have been at 5&A Dime this past Monday for the Johnny Cupcakes Suitcase Tour because from the looks of it, it was straight CRACKIN'! I didn't hear about Johnny Cupcakes until I lived at Bumsville because Annabelle was a huge fan. I thought he really sold cupcakes...

I admire Johnny Cupcakes' constant hustle, his genuine desire to connect with his customers, and build memorable experience with them to has become the foundation of his success. Read his complete story + timeline at

Here's the Johnny Cupcakes video from the 5&A Dime stop. We all had a really good time with the JC crew and it was great to see and meet everyone that came out. We're also working on a 5Dtv episode about the event...I know, I know, it's been a really long time since the last video but we promise that we'll have something soon...

"Hellz Hath No Fury" starring Alice x Mink

My favorite Swedish x Korean girls aka Alice x Mink star in the new Hellz video short. I remember them both coming over after and telling us how they had to beat each other up and get down in the dirty alleys of DTLA... I'm excited to finally see the video! Get it ladies! HAHA Without further adieu, making their acting debuts, here is "Hellz Hath No Fury":

[Hellz]: I told you there was more! It’s been a few weeks since we launched our Spring collection , “Oh Bondage, Up Yours!”, and I know that you THINK you’ve seen it all with the collection…but boy, were you wrong!

We decided to mix it up and bring you a more 3-D version of the strong and influencing feminine character of the Hellz aesthetic in the video look-book/video short “Hellz Hath No fury”. Although the video is all kinds of entertaining with intense girl fight action, it also features the absolutely adorable and form flattering “Runaways” mesh bust dress, and a few other Hellz Spring favorites. Besides the clothing; Did you notice any familiar faces? She rhymes with “Pink” and has the face of an angel (hahahahhaha, hi Mink!)

“Hellz Hath No Fury” represents Hellz as a dominant individual taking charge, and standing tall in an industry that involves a heavy does of dog-eat-dog mentality and boundless confidence. It’s undeniable that Hellz has evolved it’s design and matured it’s persona, but as always Hellz continues to celebrate the values of strong headed ladies in generation ‘Y’, and cater to the fiercest of them all. Hellz Hath No Fury, follow nobody, and take charge.

Mink Mondays with Peter Answers

[Monday, April 5th] I don't know about you, but I actually look forward to Monday's because its the only night that I know I won't be eating cereal x Cheez-Its for dinner. Don't get me wrong though, Honey Bunches of Oats x Cheez-Its is the shit! Trust me, it'll change your life! Anyways, we had a few of special guest from SF & NY in town for Mink Mondays. Originally we were suppose to have Talia Sunset come as a guest chef but she got caught up with a video shoot. Luckily Mink is always ready to hope in the kitchen rockin' her heels, which is a requirement, to cook up a fest for all the friends.

CLICK HERE to view more photos from Mink Mondays.

We had 1st time Mink Mondayers: Ray (Mighty Healthy) x Rob (Black Scale) x Mega (Black Scale)
On the menu for the night: Kimchi Fried Rice
Prince of India aka Kumar aka Neran Dhas aka My Partner in Crime
Imee (Diamond Supply) x Vincent x Sneaker (their dog)
It was nice to actually get a chance to catch up with these guys outside the usual club atmosphere. Makes sure you check out the Mighty Healthy LA pop-up shop at Hall of Fame on 449 N Fairfax Ave before April 30th.
Pauline x Jacqueline x Taryn

To the Good Life as always!
Oh shit, Hawaii Mike (LTD Magazine) is finally in the building reppin' NYC!
Have you guys been on Chat Roulette? Its kinda disturbing but we got a few good laughs at all the guys getting excited when they saw Lisa and her @bigotwitteez! ;) HAHA
Now imagine when all these perverted dudes saw Mink x Imee x Pauline x Jacqueline x Taryn on Chat Roulette... Jackpot!!!
After Chat Roulette, Mega hopped on the computer to introduce us to some paranormal site called Peter Answers. Apparently he only answers Mega's questions because he worships the Devil. But basically Mega asked "Peter" a question about the people in the room and "Peter" would answer. Everyone was trippin', the girls had chills, some grown men were almost in tears... It was like a god like spirit was actually in the room with us! It was crazy!
Mega was asking the funniest questions, "Who likes it in the butt?", "Who is the hornyest person here?", etc. All the responses were straight up comedy!
I need to upload the video footage from that night... Anyways, thank you to everyone who came over, especially Mega for providing us with constant entertainment for another fun filled Mink Monday! See you next week!
