ok, honest moment. after 5 years of dating…dating becomes watching the walking dead on the couch with unshaved legs and pajamas. because we are both freelancers now, a lot of the time we end up too tired to go out. but we must keep the spark ALIVE, know what i’m sayin?
while i sure do love our couch time, i love that HowAboutWe for Couples opens up the possibility of going on fun dates without having to work out all of the details. they give you all sorts of date ideas for your city. you can choose dates like a champagne brunch cruise, a ballroom dance class, a vodka flight freezer tour, a make your own cheese kit, the ballet and a lot more. you select the date and they take care of the details! sounds fun, right?
CLICK THROUGH TO SEE OUR DATE….
first of all: update on the naked korean spa visit. it was AWESOME! definitely a little uncomfortable for a few minutes, and then you just forget about being naked for the most part. for those of you that haven’t been, i’ll explain a little more. so we hung out in the sauna & hot tubs while waiting for our scrubs. then they called our numbers and reached for my hand. she led me to a large shower with about 8 rubber beds and told me to lie down. was i stoked about laying on a rubber table completely naked? not really. but somehow you just get used to it. they pour buckets of warm water on you and twist you all around to scrub your whole body down. they even washed my ears! and i do have to say, my skin felt like a newborn baby afterwards. the experience was actually very liberating and relaxing. i’m definitely going back! i want to try wi spa next.
a few other highlights from our girls weekend…dinner at the tasting kitchen in venice, my first sail boat ride in marina del ray, a delicious and healthy lunch at axe, manicures at the gorgeous olive & june and just some great quality friend time.

hello there. what do you have planned this weekend? i’ve been planning a little girls getaway for a good friend of mine. it starts out at the korean spa today (we’re going to this one.) i’ve heard so many good things about it, but i gotta say, i’m a little nervous to walk around stark naked! but yolo, i guess. have you been? how was it? i’ve heard the body scrubs make your skin feel so amazing. i’ve also heard people tell me they regained their body image/confidence from going to the korean spa. they say you feel sort of like “ok, we’re all women here. no need to feel weird.” all i know is that i’m excited to nap on the heated floor and hang in the jade room. i’ll let you know how it goes!
have an amazing weekend. -bri
yesterday was a great birthday! a wonderful hot stone massage in silver lake (here), brunch with a friend, bought a new coat on sale at the stevan alan outpost, treated myself to new matching underwear sets from panty raid in los feliz (so girly in there).
later in the day, arian and i went to dinner at katsu-ya in studio city, one of my favorite sushi restaurants. the line is always out the door for this tiny place so we got there right at 5:30pm when they opened. and then we ended the evening seeing the movie Her.
wow, this spike jonze movie was just what i needed. it’s basically about a guy who falls in love with his operating system (set in the future) i didn’t really know what to expect, but i had high hopes based on the trailer (watch below). i thought the movie was spectacular. it was intimate, beautiful, fascinating, hilarious, honest, unexpected, romantic, and unique. and the music definitely pulled at your heart.
i also loved the colors used in the film! the office had a ton of visual appeal…
watch the trailer here… did you see the movie yet? did you love it or hate it?
