another new year!

(Top, Shorts, Boots, Headwrap, Lip colour)

I know I haven't updated in awhile but I have been squirreled away, enjoying the holidays and all the spare time! I do have a few outfit posts in mind and they are definitely planned, so don't worry! I just put together a quick NYE outfit of sorts, something that is sparkly and festive and yet completely wearable! Perfect for those parties (that I am not going to, I have been leading quite the quiet life lately..which is not really a bad thing) and New Year's Eve shenanigans. I've also included links to them because, well, why not wear them on other occasions?

Hope everyone's holidays have been well and that you've been happy and well-fed! Thank you for reading as always, and I really apologize for the lack of updates this year. 2013 has been good, nonetheless! Hope to see you in the new year!

LA adventures with Lena - Part Two

Annnnd here commences part two of our LA adventure day! I took some non-candid and candid shots and really liked the result so I am posting them now~

It was a really fun day overall and I hope to be able to go visit Montreal one day..I desperately want to go cafe hopping!

LA adventures with Lena - Part One

(Dress - Urban Outfitters, Shoes - Vagabond, Tights - gift from Taiwan, Bag - Vintage, Jacket - Lamb & Flag)

So earlier this week I had the pleasure of meeting Lena, whose blog I have been following for a long long time! It was pretty cool to meet a blogger and internet stalkee (JUST KIDDING IT SOUNDS SO WEIRD) in person, but it was really fun! She was visiting California for a bit and we made plans to meet up. Those desserts? Bottega Louie. Looks heavenly, but I unfortunately did not try any! Next time I make it there I will definitely save room for desserts. Maybe I'll just go for a dessert run...
We met up and stuffed our faces (not really) and then I led Lena and Coco (her friend!) on a long trip that included a bus ride with a lot of people. Our destination? The Grove! It was done up all lovely and festive for the holiday season and it was fun perusing the shops :)

I am splitting the post into two because it might be a LONG scroll down, so look forward to part two of my photo dump!

You can visit Lena's blog post about our day here! Definitely look at her blog, because she is amazingly adorable and awesome and cool :)

ahoy there!

Ahoy there, mate-ys. So, I have recently come down with the flu (or cold, not really sure which) and have been ailing the past couple of days. Maybe the last week. The best part about that is I am currently in finals week! Hurrah! Best time to get sick, really. I am very much enjoying the change of voice and coughing and sniffling that comes with being sick (can you tell I'm being sarcastic? :P)

To compensate, here is another photo cube comprised of snaps I've taken over the past couple of months. Those star cookies? SO GOOD. Minty and taste just like Thin Mints, if you're into the whole Girl's Scout cookie thing. You can get a box at Trader Joe's. I highly recommend them.

Some scenery photos from the places I've managed to go the past couple of months...the beach is always a great place to rejuvenate and refresh your thoughts :)

Wish me luck as I take on a week full of things to do! Here's hoping my immune system works properly this time...

wishlist wishlist!

(Topshop embroidered sweat, Topshop velvet & glitter heels, Wildfox Couture Luna Sunglasses, Cameo Real Life Short)

Created a personal lust-list composed of items that I have been stalking for weeks (maybe even months), and some that I came across less than a week ago.

Florals! A girl just can't have enough. When I first laid my eyes on Cameo's Grand National collection, I screamed. Well, screamed silently to myself, but it was a scream nevertheless :P Since I tend to gravitate towards shorts, I was really happy to find that they had indeed included a shorts silhouette in the gorgeous print seen above.

I guess this post is like a semi-wishlist of sorts? Maybe you'll see me in these items in the future...a girl can wish, right?
