Happy Friday Everyone! February has officially arrived meaning Valentine's Day is just around the corner. From personal experiences to speaking with others, I have put together three outfits which will include shades of pinks and reds that will help express a few different feelings that come with love. This first look that I paired together, is a representation of the sweet puppy love. The a-line cut of the lovely peach dress with the nude hair bow, pearl jewelry, and book clutch help express the purity and innocence of puppy love. The Paris book clutch aids in representing the occasional fairy tale mind set of young love. I hope I inspired you to express your love through what you wear whether it's for flying solo, date night with the gals or a date night with the significant other. Stay tuned for two more looks I have put together for Valentine's Day! Thank you for reading! I hope you have a great weekend and I will talk to you soon!

Happy Friday Everyone! I am thankful for the current cold weather, solely because it allows me to wear my winter coats that have been collecting dust from the past seasons. For today's look, I opted for a more Parisian and classic look with my favorite "Audrey Hepburn" inspired trench coat, black and white color palette, and a bold red lip. I paired the rest of the look with a chic quilted bag and strappy kitten heeled sandals. This sophisticated look would be fitting for a brunch date...possibly at a Parisian cafe. :) Thank you so much for reading! I will talk to you soon! Have a great weekend!

Happy New Year Everyone! In a field of sequins and shine, it can be difficult to pick the perfect outfit for New Year's Eve. While some people prefer to ring in the new year with a statement in glitz and glamour attire, others prefer to take the subtle route through sparkling and shimmering accessories. This year, I rang in 2016 with a glam, shimmering, sequin star dress and paired it with a quirky and fun "YAY!" clutch, silver dangling earrings, and strappy heeled sandals. Through runway collections and street style photos, I found that the star prints are currently a big trend. I opted for this dress solely because it reminded me so much of Valentino's Spring 2015 gorgeous white star dress. This look is fitting for an evening ball for that midnight kiss when the shiny silver ball drops. Also, the "YAY!" clutch is a great ice breaker at any social event.
2015 was truly a memorable year full of soul searching through positive vibes, spontaneous adventures, exploring new places, goal accomplishments, meeting new people, and food adventures all shared with family and friends. It was also a year filled with hello, goodbyes, and farewells, but c'est la vie right? My personal goals for 2016 are to stay healthy and fit, stay positive, travel more, go on more fun adventures, learn something new, stay inspired, continue to work hard and keep chasing my dreams. As for my blog goals for 2016, I will continue to try to post every Friday and learn more about hair, makeup, and DIY's to improve each blog post. Thank you for stopping by and reading! I wish you all happiness in 2016! Make 2016 your year! Talk to you soon!

Happy Thursday Everyone! In completion of this year's holiday looks and the last blog post of the year, I had to save the best for last. I couldn't think of any better way than to end the year with a statment and fully embrace the holiday season with shimmer and sparkles. Feeling like Belle from Beauty and the Beast, I thought this look would be fitting for a holiday ball. I paired together a lovely Christmas red midi skirt with a sequin crop top and a fur stole for a hint of warmth. To elevate things further, I accessorized with a perfume clutch, sparkly heeled sandals, and added a red ribbon in my hair for an extra pop of color. I hope you found some more inspiration for your holiday look and I hope you enjoyed the look as much as I had fun shooting it! Thank you everyone for taking the time to stop by my blog this year! It has truly been a fun and exciting year creating content on this blog! I believe my resolution/goal this year to invest a bit more time into my blog and create better content has been accomplished and with that being said, I will continue to do so in 2016! Special thanks to Cecilia Yuen, Tazme Moua, Danson Lee, and Benjamin Nguyen for taking the time to help me shoot the looks! Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! I will talk to you soon in the new year! Stay safe and warm!

Happy Friday Everyone! In continuation of this season of sparkle and shine, I have conjured up a look that would be worthy for any RSVP'd holiday formal event. When arriving to a party, you want to look and feel like the best version of yourself. The clothing piece that is going to be the spotlight of this holiday season is the metallic midi skirt. This shimmery skirt is a great investment piece because it is versatile through all seasons whether it be paired with a simple t-shirt, button down shirt or a chic blazer. For today's look, I opted for a gold metallic pleated skirt and complimented its grace and movement with an elegant one-shoulder top. I paired the rest of the look with chic accessories such as a sleek clutch, strappy heeled sandals, and a jeweled headband. The skirt is perfect for dancing the night away in and having that "shine on" moment. I hope I inspired you to find your "shine on" moment look for your holiday party. Thank you so much for reading! Have a great weekend and I will talk to you soon!
