Perfect Look for a Summer Wedding

8.26.2016

I love weddings. The dress, the the food, the dancing; I just can't get enough! This month I partnered with one of my favorite brands ever, ModCloth to share a perfect guest look for wedding season. I picked this dress because it's classic with a twist. The navy blue color is chic plus the cut is unique and so flattering. The dress really highlights the waist while minimizing the stomach. Because the dress is so timeless I decided to pair it with quirky polka dot heels & a charming flamingo clutch. Touches like these add a lot of character to an outfit!

Styling my favorite glasses!

8.19.2016


I've worn glasses since I was 8 years old. I still remember going to the eye doctor and getting my first pair. There were so many to choose from! I would have spent hours and hours just picking out a pit of my parents didn't hurry me along. I was so excited when Cohen's reached out to me to style a few of their on-trend glasses. I went to the store in Flatiron and had that same feeling as when I was a little girl picking out frames. It was so hard to choose! I decided on two pairs; round tortoise frames from Ray Ban and an oversized pair from Miu Miu with gorgeous gem detailing on arms. I styled one casual look for the tortoise frames and one more feminine outfit for the black pair. 

The tortoise pair from Ray Ban have an adorable nerdy vibe to them so I styled them with a simple back-to-school outfit. The black v neck, denim skirt and white oxfords have a schoolgirl vibe that highlights the tortoise frames. 

For the chic black pair from Miu Miu I wore a girly gingham dress with red bow pumps. I love the oversized look of these glasses which balances the bling. You could wear these glasses to a cocktail party - the gems almost feel like extra jewelry. Which pair is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!

The Perfect Ring

8.15.2016

Every girl dreams of that special day when her prince charming asks for her hand in marriage. I can't deny it, even I think about it from time to time. Like most girls, I have a wedding Pinterest board and fantasize about that special day when a guy gets down on one knee and proposes. When ArtCarved asked me to partner and pick a few of my favorite dream engagement rings, I couldn't help but say yes. I chose three distinctive styles to highlight different shapes, sizes and styles. So I decided to get all gussied up to highlight the beauty of each of these rings. The first ring I chose a floral inspired diamond engagement ring in a beautiful rose gold finish. In my mind this was the most traditional ring and it actually reminded me of my mom's engagement ring, which I've always loved. The shape is like a rose coming into bloom! For the second ring I chose the Avril, a double halo engagement ring with both a rose gold and white gold finish finish. This is my favorite of the rings and I know I couldn't say "no" to this one! The shape is more modern but I love the mixed metals. For my last choice I actually picked a set of three mix-and-match stackable rings. I love the intricate detail laying of these rings that feels like flowers and lace on your finger! It was so much fun dressing up and dreaming of my special day. It's good to know what type of ring you're interested in so you can make sure to drop the right hints, if you know what I mean. Special thanks to ArtCarved for letting me live my engagement ring fantasy, if even just for one day! 

On turning 26

8.09.2016



The day has come. It's August 9, 2016 and I am officially 26 years old. I love birthdays. I've always loved birthday since I was little kid. One of my most memorable birthdays was when I turned six and I had and Aladdin and Jasmine impersonators come to my house in California. I think another year I had Pocahontas, too. But now I'm all grown up and the parties are a little different. This past weekend we threw a cookout in my friends front yard complete with hot dogs, hamburgers and watermelon margaritas )VLOG ENG / VLOG FRE! This past year has been incredible to say the least. Last year in August I took a leap of faith and quit my full-time job as a social media manager at Origins, an Estée Lauder brand. I decided to dedicate myself to this blog, my YouTube channels, and Instagram. It was such a scary decision, leaving a steady salary at a job I really loved to pursue one I love even more. In my 25th year I moved apartments (again), fell in love, traveled around the world, lost 15 pounds and truly came to know myself better. Change can be hard. Learning to work independently was a huge struggle. I missed the camaraderie of going into a job everyday, chatting with coworkers and working on big projects. I realized it can be hard and lonely to travel alone sometimes. But every change, every challenge was for the better. I'm so excited to see where 26 will take me.
