Stripe Garden


I don't often experiment with patterns, but on Monday I just had the urge to try my floral printed Gap jeans with my striped button-up. It was something my fashionista brain told me I just had to try. I was a bit scared to try this out because like I said I don't experiment much with patterns. Sure I love patterns on their own, but mixing and matching them is whole other ballgame. After years of wanting to take the risk and follow in other fashion lovers' footsteps(ahem, Ms. Lauren Conrad), I finally took told myself, "Why not?" and just did it.

#ShareBeauty - My Beauty Story



*This post is sponsored by Regency Beauty Institute but all my opinions are my own.*

Today I'd like to tell my story on how I share beauty. If you haven't noticed already, I can be a bit of a beauty junkie. My Makeup Monday posts and my beauty channel may have already given that away, but my love for products started much earlier. This love has allowed me a way to express myself and my creativity. For that I am grateful. So here's my story:

Seeing the Queen Musical

queen musical, we will rock you, ahmanson theatre, life

Sorry for being a bit MIA the past week or so. I am still trying to get the hang of my new work schedule, although this week was a bit unusual since I had to come in a bit earlier and it threw me off a little. Anyway, I wanted to share something that happened Tuesday night. As you know, I am currently doing an editorial internship. While most of the time it's just me writing in an office, there are some perks that involve attending some fun events. Sometimes its to cover an actual story, but other times, its just because they have extra tickets. That was the case with the "We Will Rock You" Queen Musical and I'm happy to have gotten tickets!

Where I'd Go If Someone Gave me a Free Plane Ticket

{Source: 20SB Prompt}
Sorry for the long post title LOL. Anyway, today I had planned on a different post altogether, but it didn't quite work out since I got busy and wasn't able to get it together. However, I decided to use the prompt from Twenty Something Blogger's Network. This prompt is actually perfect for the summer since it means vacation for most of us and when people usually are able to take some awesome trips. Unfortunately, I'm too broke right now to go to the many places I'd like to visit, but if someone gave me a free plane ticket, I'd be so stoked!!

Trendy Tuesday: Pump Up the Color!

Pump Up the Color

Pump Up the Color by astridstars featuring yellow pumps

Meant to publish this earlier, but got a major headache from the heat and adjusting to my new glasses(new prescription). Anyway, this post actually was inspired by two separate things that I came across over the weekend. The first thing to inspire this post is a tweet my friend Sally from Antiques & Coffee received after asking what people wanted to see on her blog. One follower responded by saying she was loving the powder blue mid heels. The other source of inspo was the most recent issue of People's Magazine that I read out of boredom while I was working over the holiday. It was on the coffee table and I wasn't quite ready for bed so I flipped through it and they had a feature on the colored pumps trend. Lightbulbs!

Influenster Surf's Up VoxBox


I hope everyone had a wonderful July 4th Holiday Weekend :) I know I certainly had fun, even if I was technically working this weekend(nanny duty). I meant to schedule some posts, but as per usual, I got tied up with last minute shenanigans(such as getting a new job!!!). I did however manage to upload my unboxing of my Influenster #SurfUpVoxBox on my beauty channel. So now here is the post to go along with it, that I meant to write before I left.
