#MDW Shopping Frenzy

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Thank you to all our brave men and women who fight for our freedom to protect our country! You are honored today and I am forever grateful for your and your family's courage! <3

On a lighter note, because of you I am able to enjoy a day off with friends and family and take advantage of all the store's discounts and crazy deals to feed my addiction!! hehehhe =)

These are some of the "trys and buys" that I came across during the #MWD adventure! =P

I hope you enjoy the rest of your evening! Have a great 4-day week! Don't forget to smile and count your blessings! =) 


Clean Summer Fun Make up

I am trying out a new lip color for the summer. I usually only use lip gloss for the shine but never any lip colors, but I am liking the instant fuller lip look! =X As always, the rest of the make up is kept simple and dewey! ~xoxo!

The New and Improved Sexy Maxi Dress

This new maxi dress is my new obsession at the moment! I love the slits on both sides of the dress showing of some but not too much skin! O:) I paired this dress with a "neon" orange loose top which came out in the photos as blah orange (sorry....=/...)

Use a belt to accentuate the waist!
"Neon" orange loose knit: I love the off-shoulder look.
It just gives the outfit an effortless yet put together feel. WIN! =)
The new and modern long maxi dress = the side slits 
The nude wedges just automatically elongate the legs which definitely help the figure in such a maxi dress! ;)  

 That's it for this post! Hope you enjoyed it! Have a wonderful shopping weekend! I know I did!! hehehe ^_^

Highlights of my OOTD/OOTN

These are selfies I took on Instagram as I log some of my favorite outfits of the day/night (not on this blog)!  ^_^

Simply White and Denim

Keeping it sweet and simple today on a beautiful Saturday in L.A.! 

Always accessorize!
And don't forget those pumps! ;) 

This is a quick and simple look for daytime whether it is running errands, brunch w/ friends, or exploring new places! Sometimes, less really is MORE! I hope you had a great Saturday! Enjoy the rest of your weekend-- it is always too short, no?! ^_^

Summer, I am ready!!!!

Hi Friends! <3

Happy Mother's Day! I hope you had a great weekend celebrating your mother or a special lady in your life who supports you, encourages you, pushes you a little further in life, catches you when you fall....and best of all loves you unconditionally regardless of what you did, is doing, or will do in the future.

"A woman's love is kind and compassionate, patient and nurturing, generous and sweet and unconditional!" -Steve Harvey <3 <3 So true!!! =)

Below is my outfit of the day for Mother's Day and Spring/Summer make up inspired by Chanel Summer 2013 Collection. I hope you enjoy the look as much as I did wearing it!

Being silly and channeling the "Fobbiness" in me (yes, I said it!)..... ^_^

Summer make-up inspired by Chanel Summer 2013 Collection:
Gold, green, and turquoise eye shadows as liners

Outfit of the Day
Top: H&M
Shorts: Theory (navy blue)

Accessories: Michael Kors watch and lots of rings (collected over the years)!!!

Shopping Day with Mom

Love the zipper look (w/o the zipper) in the back =)

Something about a bow just makes everything so feminine! 

Don't forget your pumps! =P


...and Accessorize some more!!! 

A simple yet clean and chic look, I dare say! 

Hope you enjoyed the look!
The clothes, colorful make up and accessories all make me feel happy and bubbly! I am ready for summer! Are you??!! ^_~

Happy Spring! New Beginnings


I was on a hiatus for many months but I. AM. BACK!!! I love this season for its colors, warmer weather, and definitely the feeling of NEW BEGINNINGS! 

When I think of Spring fashion, I think of light, playful style that is relaxing yet chic. I like to transition from the cold winter (ok...mild in CA) into cool breezy spring with my style by pairing feminine pieces with bold/dark pieces. =) Here I chose a feminine top with men-inspired (linen) trousers.

Top: F21
Black men-inspired linen trousers: H&M

F21 Top: I love the loud colorful prints which is contrasted by the feminine lace neckline
(What a contradiction! =P)
This linen trousers are loose, comfortable and perfect for the cool spring weather!
A big bonus: the style is flattering for almost all body figures!
Try pairing them with heels to elongate the legs and give yourself a few inches (ahem....without anyone knowing! ;)

Because the trousers are already loose, the top should be fitted or at least tucked in to accentuate that nice feminine waistline. It'll instantly give you a polish look! 
Make-up: Neutral
Brows: Benefit Brow Zings
Eye make-up: Benefit (Fake up concealer, BADgal waterproof Liner, They're Real! Mascara), Urban Decay eyeshadows
Face: Sunblock, Benefit CORALista blush
Lips: vaseline

Here is a close up of the eye make-up.
The trick is keeping it soft by blending colors together. 

I hope you enjoy this post. It has been awhile and I will admit I do feel a bit rusty as I post this! Please forgive me if this is not up to par! :)

In the past few months (or year) much has happened but there were many lessons that I learned about myself, others, and God's love. I am still very grateful and thankful for experiences and especially the friends and family who were there for me. Regardless of what has happened or will happen, I can say that I am very BLESSED.   I know that He has a plan for me and better things are yet to come!

Spring is about rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal and regrowth! So cheers to new beginnings! Stay Strong, stay Motivated, and always look for the silver lining in every situation! Don't give up! Do what makes you happy and everything will fall in its place!

I miss you all! See you again soon!!! ^_^
