Willow & Everett Cold Brew Coffee Maker

I always wanted to make cold brew at home and I finally did! All you do is you grind coffee beans (4/3 cups of coffee to make 32 oz), put coffee in filter, the pour water. Leave it for 12-24 hours. That's it. So easy to make! You just have to wait for at least 12 hours, which is the most difficult part about it.

MAKE DELICIOUS COLD BREW COFFEE IN 3 EASY STEPS: Now you don't have to go to your favorite coffee shop to get your cold brew coffee fix. In three simple steps you can make 32 ounces of delicious, homemade cold brew coffee, perfect for beating the summer heat and wowing guests.

ATTRACTIVE GLASS & STAINLESS STEEL DESIGN: This glass and stainless steel iced coffee maker was designed to be attractive enough to leave out on your table or kitchen counter for serving. The durable, shatterproof glass pitcher brews up 4-5 servings, keeps your cold brew coffee cool and looks great in your kitchen.

REMOVABLE DUAL-MESH STAINLESS STEEL FILTER: This high-quality dual mesh filter is BPA and plastic free and keeps your coffee grinds from leaking into your cold coffee, providing the perfect amount of steeping overnight. When finished brewing, simply remove the filter, dump out the coffee grounds and move the silicone ring to the base of the airtight lid. Put the filter away and pop the lid back on the pitcher and store in the fridge for later enjoyment

AIRTIGHT & LEAK PROOF LID: A stainless steel airtight lid keeps your cold brew fresh and flavorful. The lid is leak proof and seals tight with a silicone ring around the filter. When it's time to remove the filter after the coffee is brewed up simply move the silicone ring onto the lid to keep it airtight on the pitcher.

It tasted so good!

I Max plant stem-cell cream and 45% Trichloroacetic Acid Serum-Deep Chemical

Plant Stem Cell Cream

I Max Plant Stem Cell Cream of Gardenia Stems GXTM for Anti-aging, Wrinkle Reducing and Lifting Sagged Skin by Protecting our Skin's Stem Cell, Boosting New Collagen Synthesis and Preventing Collagen Loss.

Gardenia Stems GXTM provide triple targeted protection of collagen systems. Gardenia Stems GXTM is a plant stem cell extract providing multi-level protection of the collagen network by boosting new collagen synthesis and preventing collagen loss. Collagen is the main structural protein of the extracellular matrix giving support and firmness to the skin.

As most components of the skin, it undergoes continuous turnover: new collagen is continuously produced and recycled throughout life. While aging occurs, collagen degradation physiologically tends to speed up and contributes to weakening and wrinkling of the skin Our skin stem cells have a limited life time due to DNA damage, aging and oxidative stress.


45% Trichloroacetic Acid Serum-Deep Chemical 

TCA makes the top layers of skin cells dry up and be peeled off over a period of one to two weeks. The skin turnover rate is significantly promoted by TCA. After the old skin is peeled off, a new layer of undamaged skin is exposed. It has smoother texture and lighter and more even color. I Max 45% Trichloroacetic Acid Serum-Deep Chemical Peel is a high concentrate facial serum for tightening, lifting, wrinkle reducing, antiaging, fading dark spots (it has to be diluted 2-4 times) and treating skin abnormalities, such as skin tags, moles, or warts (dilution is not necessary). Unlike other chemical peel products, this serum is formulated very uniquely with effective actives for nurturing, soothing, healing and hydrating like Vitamin Bs, Beta glucan and Organic Botanical extracts.

TCA peel is usually used to 1. Reduce fine lines. 2. Fade dark and brown spots. 3. Improve skin texture. 4. Lift loose face and neck. 5. Glow face. It obviously brings us great results of the skin beauty and rejuvenation.

-A temporary painful, tingling or burning sensation has been often noted upon initial contact as well as heightened skin sensitivity, redness and peeling. These are very normal and will be disappeared soon but those with extra-sensitive or allergic skin should do a patch test on a small and less visible area first to determine if their skin may tolerate this serum.
-Never use manual exfoliators nor scrubbing brushes within 24 hours of using this serum. Never use this serum on the open or inflamed skin.

Patch Test: If you are the 1st time user of AHA or your skin is allergic or oversensitive to AHA, you must use this serum after doing a patch test and waiting for 24-72 hours for result only to see if your skin can tolerate AHA. This serum is well known as #1 safe chemical peel which enhances new skin cell turnover and dissolves the uppermost layer of the epidermis resulting fresh, smooth and light skin. You may have to dilute high concentrate of the serums of 45%..

For the normal skin's beauty and health, dilute 2 to 4 times. Wash your face thoroughly with cleanser and apply the diluted serum evenly with cotton pads or fan brush. After 15 minutes, wash out and towel dry. After you pass a patch test, start applying the serum once or twice a week and observe your skin condition. Increase usage up to 3 to 4 times a week for a month. Stop or decrease usage if your skin becomes satisfying, too thin or sensitive.

Saeng Saeng - Koreatown

New gimbap and snack place opened recently in Koreatown, where Elephant snack corner used to be. I was here during soft opening, and the food was ok but the service was a mess. I think they opened too soon. The workers need to be trained more, so does kitchen stuff. They seemed like they were not sure what they were doing.

We ordered gimbap + udon combo $8.99, and gimbap + mandoo combo $8.99. They lost our order so we waited little over 30 minutes to get dumplings. Because of that, instead of getting smaller portion of dumplings, we got full size dumplings. I liked gimbap, but udon and mandoo were just ok. Also when you order combo, you get to pick gimbap flavor, but they said any flavor except mixed gimbap. It's same price with all other gimbap so I don't know why you can't choose mixed gimbap. Also when I asked what's in the mixed kimbap, they mentioned there's cheese in it, so I asked if they can make it without cheese. They said no. I don't understand why, because on the menu, it says "made fresh per order".  But anyway, I'll suggest to call 30 minutes ahead, and then go pick up your gimbap. That way, you shouldn't have any problems.

What to get here: Gimbap

bulgogi gimbap and fish cake gimbap

The Poke Shack - Los Angeles

I was invited to media night few days ago and had an opportunity to try their food. The grand opening was today. The menu is very simple, Poke bowl, smoothie, or Acai bowl.

2 sizes, lil daddy or big daddy.

Brown rice with seaweed, tuna, salmon, avocado, kale, masago, edamame, cucumber, and cherry tomatoes

Unfortunately, it wasn't my favorite poke bowl. Brown rice didn't taste like brown rice, it was more like long grain rice, had weird taste. Also they only have tuna and salmon for the choice of the fish. Although they have varieties of toppings, including macadamia nuts, watermelon radish, and kimchi.

Tuna, shrimp, kimchi, avocado

Watermelon water was delicious. Other cold pressed juices were bitter.

Acai bowl. I choose mango juice as base, and 100% acai sambazon, berries, banana, granola, honey, and coconut flakes. Delicious.
