I have always wanted to go to Colorado Springs. I have this idyllic image of CO in my head – hot springs and pretty mountains. Well, May was a bit too hot for hot springs but definitely not for pretty mountains. And so, my good friend and I flew from opposite coasts and spent an amazing Memorial … Continue reading

Happy Hump Day all! Stopping by for a quick post on my weekend in SF. That’s the Bay Bridge … I think…right? Beautiful view from the top of my big bro’s apartment! Probably not safe for anyone to be up there but shhhhh 😛 I got super lucky with the weather. Just look at that … Continue reading

Happy Hump Day all! I have been looking for more colorful backgrounds for my outfit posts and came across this yellow brick wall. I think burgundy actually blends in quite nicely, yes? Although harem pants are not always flattering for petite girls, I still love them. The right pair will give you the perfect hour-glass … Continue reading

I ventured out to San Juan Capistrano this past weekend for brunch (separate post on brunch to come). This missionary town is full of character and remnants of the old California. It’s quite a drive south but definitely worth a half-day trip. For all the shabby/rustic chic lovers out there, this place is picture perfect. … Continue reading

I had brunch with some of my favorite people at Farm Shop last weekend. It’s located in the cutest little plaza called Brentwood Country Mart. I’m totally drinking the shabby / rustic chic Kool-aid and love everything about this place. Can’t wait to come back and try some of the other food options! I scored … Continue reading

Happy Monday all! Quick outfit post from this past weekend. Enjoy! As you all can probably tell, I’m obsessed with black leather shorts and wear them with just about anything. I’m also loving the simple tee look. They make easy but oh so chic looks. Pair the outfit with a statement necklace and some cute … Continue reading

I never thought I’d find myself in Thailand (anytime soon). Of course, I had hoped to vacation in Thailand at some point in life. Hug a tiger, ride an elephant, sip cocktails at the world’s tallest alfresco bar type of thing…you know, the usual. As fate would have it, I got staffed on an international … Continue reading

LA weather is all sorts of funky this weekend. I woke up this morning to grey skies and stuffy air. Given the lack of sunshine, I opted for a lazy Sunday of television, massage and more television. I’m aiming to hit the gym after I write this blog post but we shall see…shabu shabu sounds … Continue reading
