Baby Shower Brunch


Congratulations to our dearest Jane and her hubby on their expecting baby boy! It was a great honor to have been a part of the baby shower and contributing to this wonderful day. There were decorations, balloons, floral arrangements, games, prizes, and great company. It could not have been on a more perfect day in Los Angeles, with no gloom or coldness in sight.

The event was held at a cute little corner brunch spot named Faith & Flower that serve tapas-like brunch dishes to share with the group. The food was delicious and the interior decorating was on point between a classy, quaint, and vintage joint. 

Below are some detail snapshots of some of the little details, and of course pictures of our expecting mother!

Sole Society Sample Sale Haul


Sales will be the death of me.

I can never pass up on a great deal - my number one weakness. When I found out that Sole Society was having a sample sale AND they are located just a few blocks from my work place, I had to check it out. I have to admit that I somewhat splurged on this day. All these items were more of an investment for me, rather than something I actually needed at the moment. After the quick 30 minute shopping spree, I felt total regret, but now that a week has gone by... I'm in a much better place about these purchases. :D

These were all 50% off or more. Now let's see what I got!

 Heels $20

Weekend Bag $35

 Sunglasses $5. All jewelry $9

Handbag $32

It's Layering Time!

With Black Friday around the corner and this terrible chilly weather hitting us hard, I do believe it is time to layer up and toastify ourselves. Yes, I just made that word up, and I quite like it. It oddly makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside thinking about getting toastified!

I just want to wrap myself in some glorious, warm faux fur and snuggle until I pass out from euphoria.

Here are my top picks for some affordable outerwear from Choies.com.

Thrifting Gear


I do tend to have my girly days, but we cannot forget my tomboy days. For some odd reason, I find it so invigorating and empowering to dress as a boy, of course, with a girls' refinement.

Thrifting requires a lot of bending, digging, and searching through racks, which is why I suggest being completely comfortable. Minus the upgrade from the booties in these pictures, this outfit is what I call my thrifting gear - A nice comfy pair of pants, tee, a backpack for all your stuff, a cap to keep your hair and the sun out of your way, and some layers, in case it gets chilly. 

Now, you are on your way to a great thrifting experience!

Thigh High Boots

Fall Thigh High Outfits




Welcome November! It is so strange how the weather drastically changed here in Cali. We were experiencing warm weather up until Halloween hit. Then suddenly, rain came and now this fall gloom and chill. At least, with chilly weather comes warm and cozy clothes!

I have been searching for some suede thigh high boots for quite some time now, and I just purchased a pair! I am still uncertain on whether they are "the one", but they are still pretty darn cute. Unfortunately, I view thigh highs as one of those things that should not be bought excessively this season. So of course, searching for "the one" is quite important for me, especially with the colder weather coming in quick.

Hopefully, I can decide on whether to keep this pair I purchased at Target (on sale in stores now), so I can start wearing them! But in the meanwhile, I shall lust over styling them with the help of the internet. Above, I styled two different outfits I would wear with my new thigh highs. The number 1 option is the epitome of cozy, with all those knit attire and that cozy shearling jacket. Option number 2, is a classier outfit with that amazing asymmetrical circle skirt. I absolutely love styling others (and myself), so I hope this inspires someone, somewhere.

Let me know which outfit you like the best! Happy November all! :)

Presenting... Miss Zombie 2014!


And so... yet another Halloween has gone by. It is a bittersweet moment when all your hard work and creativity has ended. Sorry, making it sound much more dramatic than it really is, but I love Halloween that much.

This year, I started off with the idea of a stretched/open mouth, and from there my costume slowly started to unravel. The costume really reflects my life right now (which will be explained in a future post). I had this fancy red dress sitting in my closet for some time now. I literally bought this dress online just because I was on an online shopping rampage, and hence the reason it sitting in my closet. Once this dress came into the picture, it was obvious that I should be a zombie pageant queen.

Presenting... MISS ZOMBIE 2014!

 
 

 Halloween cupcakes for the team :)
 

Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween, with lots of candy loot!

Sunday Brunch - Snooze Eatery



I spent this past weekend in San Diego visiting some old friends. I have always considered San Diego a second home because I have spent 4 years of my life there, but to my surprise, I could not remember what or where anything was anymore! Old age hits hard man... very hard...

Besides all of that, I love to brunch! Something about a nice hearty breakfast/lunch combo on a sunny Sunday always gets me. We tried out Snooze - an A.M. Eatery for the first time, and my overall thoughts were it was okay... However, I would not bring you all such a mediocre blog post, unless there was something that wowed me there. And that something is... their Blueberry Danish Pancakes! YUMS!

Here's a description of the orgasmic pancakes straight from their menu.
 "Buttermilk pancakes topped with blueberry coulis, sweet cream and almond streusel surrounding a center of lemony cream cheese filling" --> RIGHT?!



The great thing about Snooze is that they let you do little custom sampler plates. For instance, the above consists of 3 different items from their menu, which is called the "Pancake Flight." You get the best of both (or in this case, 3) worlds, which most restaurants do not offer.We even got to try 2 egg benedicts in one.
