Am back home now and it honestly feels good, it’s nice to be back to the norm. Yesterday Ian’s residency program had a dinner party, somewhat formal, so I had to get dressed up a bit. I went through my closet and all my cute dinner dresses are strapless or sleeveless…..but I acquired major sunburns on my arms, chest and back in kauai, so I wanted to hide them as much as possible ha-ha
I live close to a shopping center so I dashed last minute to the stores in search of a cute light weight cover up, but instead fell in love with this dress from Ross
I really love the design of this dress and even though the sleeves aren’t long enough to cover all my sunburns, the beauty of the dress is enough distraction and compensates for the rest ha
I paired the black and nude dress with my nude Marshalls heel sandals, which went perfect! The outfit made me feel grown up, beautiful and confident because I didn’t worry about sunburnt skin showing ha-ha. It was very appropriate for the event and I got compliments yay!

April is my birth month and we decided to celebrate early, no complains here :)..We had an amazing day in downtown Seattle, esp because “Comi-con” was going on at the convention center and the streets were packed with comic lovers dressed up as super heroes/comic characters. It was fun to people watch. We walked around pike place market, which was all flowers everywhere and so beautiful..had a mini stroll around the starbucks reserve roastery tasting room(a giant coffee shop, where you can see barrels of coffee beans, the packaging process, taste new coffee that hasn’t been released yet…and it smells like heaven)
After strolling around seattle/shopping, we had dinner at stateside restaurant on first hill – a french & vietnamese fusion restaurant (it is one of my favorite now, if you live around seattle – highly recommended), then walked to bookstore cafe for coffee but instead had cocktails (they don’t serve coffee after 6 p.m apparently) and ended the night at seattle underground comedy club at pioneer square, which was lots of fun!
Do you guys like the outfit?, I am in love with this romper, so easy, breezy..haha, and I did my braids on Saturday (turned out pretty good), I love easy, comfortable outfits..so this was perfect, wore it with my black boots and black target blazer.
Happy monday friends 🙂
I recently made a purchase from Ruche, a vintage clothing company that I discovered a few months back and I am definitely in love!!, I honestly hate online shopping unlike most people, because I get so impatient waiting on my packages and it’s annoying when the stuff doesn’t fit or the color is weird and I have to ship them back (sigh!)…..even though I go through tons of reviews about the clothing, it’s still rare for me to get stuff online (in terms of clothes/shoes). Anyhow, after browsing Ruche website for hours (everything was so cute!), I settled on this taupe midi skirt. It is super comfy, cute and awesome quality, I know I’ll wear this a lot 🙂
Noticed my brogues yet?, I definitely scored on this pair. Purchased through amazon, and first impression – super comfy, shoes made for walking that’a for sure 🙂
This is one of my favorite outfit I have to say, I am headed over for “linner” (meal between lunch and dinner) now lol, is it an actual word? idk..
I think it’s funny how this looks more like fall, but I promise flowers are blossoming everywhere around here and it is definitely spring, just not where I chose to take my outfit pics haha. I wore my black cardigan to complete the look and because it is chilly and drizzling a bit. Do you like my outfit?
Have a nice day friends.

I also binge read other blogs I like, and hadn’t had a chance to read recently. It’s so refreshing for me to read other people’s perspective on things related to daily
boring everyday life, and I also like getting inspired in terms of food, style, working out etc, some of my faves are delightfully tacky by Elizabeth, twenty seven by Michelle and Curious Natalia. I find this ladies blogs “from the heart” and very unique and personal. It’s obviously very brave for people to share their lives with the wide world web (the good and bad) and I respect such content, despite my disagree-ability or agree-ability. I honestly hope my blog will go into a similar direction, something someone can relate to, not just nice photos/clothes.
Today was weird, I woke up thinking I had the day off and was really confused when work called me to go in….ooppss!, I can’t keep track of my days anymore..
I also can’t wait for this week to end, its been hellish, but I am trying to stay positive. Do you guys ever miss school/classes?, I do.. I miss learning new things and being excited to finish projects in college, and I honestly can’t wait to go back because I am really struggling to like my new work position. I don’t want to quit just because am unhappy there, I know its only temporary so I’ll give it my best and hopefully things will look up soon.
yay to career change thoughts!!
Stay positive friends, it’s almost spring 🙂
I think summer came early in the pnw and am not complaining, the weather has been gorgeous all week and I finally got to enjoy it today, even though I have become accustomed to the rainy and cloudy days. My work week has been very eventful and I couldn’t wait to get a break from all of that, and soak up on some vitamin D.
I almost never wear jeans, since I spent half of my teenage life in jeans, so I decided to double it up!, I used a red belt to pop some color since my shoes matched the denim haha, I needed comfortable shoes I could walk in.
Denim shirt: old navy// pants: HM//shoes: target
tips on a double denim look: wear a different tones of denim, don’t accessorize with more than 2 items, wear different color shoes or belt.
Do y’all (pun intended) like the other side of WA?, I felt a little “mid western/southern cowboy” I have to say. I enjoyed playing with the sunset because I never get the chance to take sunset photos, it was fun.

Things am really excited about right now? having a day off from the long stretch of draining work days. I love my job, but working with sick people who constantly need you for help can be draining in ways I cannot describe. My whole thing was looking forward to binge-watching madmen, listening to my favorite audiobook (the goldfinch) on my commute from work and hanging out with my favorite person, but I have finished both madmen and the book and I don’t know what to do with myself anymore! I got into Hart of dixie for a while because of all the cute outfits the cast wears but I just fell off that train (too much cliches in the storyline) and started watching parks and rec for some laughs. It’s also unbelievable that January is almost over and tax season is upon us (yes please). I have to say that I am loving my new attitude in this cold and grey weather, I have been very outdoorsy, trying new things, complaining less…..lets hope this carries on until spring.
I didn’t realize how much school consumed my life until now, even though i have a full-time job, I feel so free (even though i wish i had more hours in day) and “normal”, i guess the fact that i was always a full-time student for the last four years had just become a normal for me and stress was part of my life without even noticing.
On other news, I recently wore this cute top from f21. I went to the mall to use up my hm gift card and could not resist popping into f21 after I got an email stating all sale items were 50% off!!!, unfortunately i didn’t get a sale item(after hrs of searching for something cute – everything was in large sizes 🙁 ), so I walked to the spring section and fell in love with this fabric:
So I ended up with the peter pan collar crop top(i live for the 60s 🙂 ) and a jumper/romper with the same fabric, I haven’t worn the romper yet, but here are more pics of the crop top:

I love the quote above, so much truth in it and I thought I would share it for some Sunday spark!
So… I’ve been binge-watching mad men all day because am sick 😩, I thought about going to church but the frequent sneezing and watering eyes made me think twice. I am not a homebody at all and staying home all day was hard…lol, I cleaned, did laundry and cooked (a lot of cooking and eating).
Other than all the eating, I also did some nail care, my absolute least favorite thing to do..but I always love my feet so much better after. Here are my holy grail nail care items:
I decided to go with blue nail polish to match the winter blues (jokes)..😏
And glitter (because a girl can never sparkle too much)
I also love the Sally Hansen cuticle remover, which works wonders! and because it’s winter and dry, I use the johnsons baby oil to soften my feet.
Have a lovely Sunday ladies and gents
