The Weeknd at SoFi Stadium

I love going to concerts of all kinds. I will be the first to admit that I do not typically listen to The Weeknd, not because I don’t like him but because he’s always playing on the radio. My SO wanted to see him so we went to SoFi to see him on his last show of the tour.

We arrived about 20 minutes before the gates opened to get merchandise and check out the newest stadium in LA. We had floor seats and were in the third row. The Weeknd can see me from where I was sitting!!

MIKE DEAN came out and performed for about 30 or so minutes. Then Kaytranada came out for about 30 or so minutes as well and got the crowd off of their feet! Of course we’re all here to see The Weeknd.

I asked the staff what time he’d be on stage and they told me 9pm. It is now 9pm and the crowd gets on their feet waiting for Abel to appear on stage. We wait until 9:17pm until the performers appear on stage. He started off with “Alone Again“ and he sounded off, but I thought it was how it normally is during live performances compared to the record where the voice may not be as good. But this is The Weeknd; he can sing!! As the first song was playing he kept going off stage which was odd.

He performed three songs including “Gasoline”. It became really apparent that something was wrong because the performers were still doing their thing on stage as “Blinding Lights” was playing, but he wasn’t on stage! When the song was over he came out and at 9:37pm he informed us about his voice and offered apologies to the audience and said refunds would be issued. The crowd was stunned and shocked and couldn’t believe the news that we just heard. The stage went dark and the house lights turned on. Twenty minutes into the show and the concert unfortunately ended! People didn’t want to leave because we came to see The Weeknd! The crowed started to leave the arena, but some sat in their seats and started crying. I was surprised this REALLY happened during a show. Of course, the man gives it his all when he’s on stage and after performing the night before without rest. It’s unfortunate, but understandable. He posted this on his Instagram story about an hour later.

As I exited the stadium everyone was dumbfounded because it is just before 10pm and we’re not supposed to be leaving for another two hours. Walking back to the car, I found out people came from Santa Barbara and Fresno (I’m sure there’s farther places as well) for this event.

We came home just after 11:30pm and we should’ve still been at SoFi. We were both bummed. I woke up this morning feeling the same and shocked that this happened. Of course, health first. Abel needs time to heal and recover. Once he’s ready I DO HOPE that the date is rescheduled and a refund will not be issued because I would love to see him live doing a full show when he’s 100%.

Sanrio Haul!

I don’t know how this happened, but it did! I actually do know how it happened hahaha. There was a meet & greet with Pochacco a couple of weeks ago and I walked away with Pochacco slippers! The following days it was the Keroppi x Forever 21 beanie..and from there I have this!

My haul:
• Pochacco house slippers
• Keroppi x Forever 21 beanie
• Pochacco large storage box
• Hello Kitty & Keroppi Glamnetic reusable press-on nails


eBay Authenticity Guarantee Experience

I typically purchase second hand luxury items..I mean Louis Vuitton items..from Japan because by law the country isn’t allowed to sell counterfeit items or else they will be heavily fined. When I saw the LV Toiletry epi in figue I HAD TO ADD this item to my epi figue collection!

I messaged the seller asking where they ship from and it was in the US. Again, I was hesitant because I want to make sure the item was authentic. They told me they shipped from Illinois and send the item to eBay for authenticity. eBay then inspects the item and then repackages the item to be sent to me.

When I received the item eBay it packaged well. I was surprised to see all the inclusions of item tags, shopping bag, dust bag and absolutely no blemishes on the bag. Overall, my first time using eBay authenticity was a positive one. I am happy with the seller and eBay authenticating the item.

If you purchased a luxury item using eBay authenticity, what was your experience like?

Change and Shift

Your strategy gets to change.

Your energy gets to change.

Your beliefs get to change.

Your identity gets to change.

With each shift you transition into means nothing about your previous state.

You weren’t doing anything wrong you just shifted. That is all.

That is all it means.

Allow yourself to outgrow yourself over and over again.

Allow it to be fun.

Allow it all to be a reflection of your evolution and not a reflection of what you could have been or done better in the past.

Coach Summer Signature Collection

When I saw Coach Outlet’s online summer collection I knew I had to snag a few pieces. They came out with colors such as green, red, orange, blue and purple.

Here is what I snagged up

Rowan Satchel. $328 on sale for $131.20 – 15% = $111.52
Nolita 19. $94 – 15% = $79.90

How absolutely cute this color is?!? I ordered the Nolita 19 online and bought the Satchel in-store.

Rowan Satchel – It comes with a removable adjustable strap so the bag can be worn as a shoulder bag, crossbody or hand bag. It is so spacious, great for an errand bag.

Nolita 19 – This bag has the signature Coach C’s throughout the bag. The strap has a crab hook on one side, but it is not removable. It is worn on the shoulder with a strap drop of approximately 6 1/4”. If you have an extender you can use it to elongate the strap. If you prefer not to wear it on your shoulder you can hold it on your hand. This fits the essentials.

The purple colors come with silver hardware and so fitting for the summer. I was able to get these beauties with their extra 15% off! #win. I am so happy with my new bags and will definitely use them in the summer and beyond!

Backstreet Boys Meet & Greet Post-Covid

The last time I did a Backstreet Boys meet & greet was August 2019. It was $500 + fees and you got:
1.Professional photo
2.2 drinks per person
3.Souvenir lanyard
4.Hangout at the VIP area

Since COVID things have slightly changed. I did the meet & greet June 7 at The Hollywood Bowl. Price is still $500 + fees. Things I noticed this time around due to COVID.
1.Since The Bowl is an outdoor venue the photo was taken outdoors.
2.There was no VIP hangout area. 3.There were no 2 drinks for the VIPs.

Not that there was anything wrong with the way meet & greet is done know, just things I noticed.

Things to know if you’re doing meet & greet:
1.Get there at your designated time.
2.Plan your outfit accordingly. If you’re going to bring a change of shoes or extra layers as it may get chilly at night.
3.Know what pose you would like to do. Know what you would like to say to them.
4.It goes by so fast, enjoy the moment.
