Upcycling Your Wardrobe

Hello my friends, it is long overdue, but I finally managed to put away all of my jacket and coats, and pulled out those warmer pieces. Summer just started a few weeks ago, and it’s funny because with every new season,   I somehow manage to trick my brain into thinking I have absolutely nothing to wear. Which is pretty ridiculous considering I am such an avid shopper; my closet is starting to get tired of my shenanigans :) . For this post, I’m challenging myself to work within my closet. This means instead of going out and buying more clothes, I am going to style pieces that I already own. This idea was inspired by Emily Noel who started something similar on Youtube concerning makeup. I found her ideals regarding waste reduction and her mindset of focusing on the items you already own was inspirational. I hope this post inspires you, the same way Emily inspired me, to take a minute and reflect on that loaded clothing rack back at home. There are so many different ways to change

DIY Salon Perfect Nails - For Beginners!

Helloo, hope you all are doing well this week. Over the past couple of months, I have been super into doing my own nails.  A nice new set of nails just makes me feel so badass. Something about the uniformity and the shape once they're all done--oof! I love it. However, going out every couple of weeks for a new set or fill can get quite expensive. A lot of my friends have been asking me how exactly I manage to DIY this process. I answered exactly that below:   6 Simple Steps to Nails   1. The first step to this process is nail maintenance. Trim and shape your natural nails to a nice even length. Remove any excess residue from the nail bed with a cotton pad and mild acetone. Once this step is done, you are ready to begin. 2. In order for your fake nails to last, the top layer of your natural nails must be filed. This creates a rough surface that your glue can adhere to. Use any nail filing tool to "roughen up" your nail bed. I do this by filing away a v

Best Fashion Trends of 2018

WELCOME BACK to my channel! (...or blog lol) Hellooo friends! It's been a HOT minute since I have spoken with all of you, but good news! We are coming to the end of 2018!! And that means, we have all survived for another year of crazy fashion trends. ;D yay.  I thought a great way to end the year would be to revisit the absolute best fashion trends of 2018 (in my opinion). Lets take a look shall we?   5. Blazer Fever   Fashion this year has had some amazing feats, but 2018 was the year that celebrated women in the work place. Business casual clothing blew up in the fashion industry and multiple brands have come out with their own interpretations of formal blouses, pants, and blazers. My take? I'm absolutely in love with this trend! The outfits that I was able to style left me feeling classy every time I put them on. Better yet, I can transition from school to work and vise versa fairly easily. Unfortunately, I find it too hot to be wearing blazers in the summer, and too c

Shop With Me: Shein

Hello my friends, how are you today? Wow, I can't believe summer is already coming to an end. And as with the end of any season, I am so excited for the all of the sales that are currently rolling in. Lets just say I could not help myself; I went online and did some snooping around to find a couple of new pieces that I feel like would be an absolute staple for the upcoming months. This is no ordinary haul. For this post, I hopped on a site that I have seen popping up all over IG,  Shein. Shein sells a large variety of clothing items, from tops to jeans to shoes and bags, all for a quarter of the market price.  I have ordered from this site in the past, and had fairly good experience with the service and quality of the items. I thought it would be a great idea to see if I can find anything on the site that I feel fits the upcoming trend, and challenged myself to put together a couple of outfits using the items I bought.  Enough talking, let’s begin.   Look 1:

How to Rock Low-cut Tops/Dresses

How are you doing!! Welcome back to my blog. This week I had such an amazing time shooting at Bernal Heights in San Francisco. Let me tell you, the view from there is absolutely amazing. It is a grassy hill overlooking the city. It was breathtaking. Now lets jump right into my outfit. The staple of this look is this maroon slit dress from Forever21. I have never grabbed something off the rack so quick. It is a STUNNING wrap dress for a fraction of the price.  But...I took one look at the dress and knew there would be a problem. Look at the cut of the dress and see how low it goes down the chest. It was a v-line straight to my bellybutton! If you have the chest to fill this dress, wow am I jealous of you. Girls with smaller chest area (aka me) typically stray away from these type of low cut tops/dresses, as they are often perceived as unflattering on the figure.  However, I am here to tell you my tricks on how to make it work.  First step, be very cautious on

Black and White Photo Meet

Hello everyone, how are you today. A few weeks back, I had the opportunity to organize a very special photography meet with a few of my friends in Davis. We wanted to keep it simple, a black and white theme in the Arboretum, and tried to find new unique ways to elevate the photos. Here is what we came up with.  Please ignore my awkward hand placement :D For my outfit, I wanted to look clean and chic. I found this distressed graphic tee on sale one day and knew I wanted to include it in one of my photo shoots. You can't really see it in the photo, but it is distressed on one side of the collar. Something very simple, but made the tee look very grunge and unique. I liked it. I layered underneath a black slip dress from Brandy Melville. You can belt the dress and tuck in the shirt, but here I decided to tied it into a simple knot. Just another way to re-wear your dresses and make it look different-now its a skirt! I'm always finding new ways to layer my clothes to ma

Wish-Is it Legit?

Hello everyone! I am finally back after a long break. Thank you so much for tuning in to this post. This week's topic is super interesting-at least to me..haha... and it involves the Wish app. I've seen it all over Facebook, ads on Youtube, ect. and to be completely honest, I was very skeptical at first. I'm all about budget buying, but whenever I see clothing apps or clothing ads on Facebook, I just never know if it will be a scam.  In case you didn't know, Wish is an app that sells suppppper cheap items, ranging from free to 10-16ish dollars. What I"m most interested in is their clothes. Whenever you find a new place to shop, especially if its online, you always should do your research; search up reviews online, go on Youtube, or check out videos. That's just how you will know for sure you will get your money's worth. Unfortunately this takes up a lot of time. Don't worry tho, a particular shopaholic (haha -> thats me) got you covered. I did al

Night Out

Welcome back everyone.  Temperatures are slowly dropping as we charge headfirst into the frosty winter weather. Today I am more than excited to share with you my all time favorite night out look . Whether its grabbing a couple drinks with your girls, or a date night with your boo, th is look is sure to steal the show.   Mesh and glitter. How can you go wrong. My entire look was centered around this beautiful top. I was out shopping with my friends when I came across this piece. I have seen this top all over the internet over the past couple of months. This retails for a variety of prices ($9.99 at Forever21), but I got this for a STEAL of  a price. Guess where? Wish.com! Wish is a sited filled with incredibly high discounted items. I have seen so many hauls on Youtube, and decided to test it out for myself. I was surprised to find such a gem on this site. I purchased this top for $5 including shipping. Honestly, thats the price of a Starbucks drink right there. Althoug

One Top, Three Looks

Basically Basic: Tank Tops Hi friends! For a while now the majority of the clothes I buy tend to be trendy pieces that come and go. This meant hoarding off the shoulder or tube tops, sporting gingham or plaid, and buying the occasional pieces that I THINK I would wear all the time, but then end up sitting at the bottom of my closet. Today, I am going back to the basics.  The great thing about basics is that they never go out of style. This means you don't need to break the bank trying to keep up with the trend. They are a classic, a necessity in every closet. I am very excited to be starting a new series on this blog, "Basically Basic". From simple t-shirts to plain denim jeans, each blog will show you how universal these pieces truly are, and how to style simple pieces into outfits that are far from basic. This week's topic: one tank top, three looks. The first step is to get your hands on a tank top. Despite being "basic" there are so many diff

Pretty In Pink

Do not be fooled by these smiles, over the past week and a half, my life has been a total mess. I've been studying super hard for finals as well as picking up extra shifts to make up for the upcoming Christmas break. And to be quite honest with you, I'm slowly feeling as if I am burning out. Sometimes you just need a break from life. To get away from the hectic commotion, and just focus on yourself. Nevertheless, I managed to put together this look together before finals was due.   What I like most about this look is its simplicity. Here I tried to bring back some color to my life by wearing this muted pink wrap top. I loved the polka dot design of it-it brings just the right amount of fun without making me look childish. Not to mention, its perfect for my petite body as I can adjust the top to my figure.    When putting this fit together, I wanted to elevate a more casual look. Also its finals! I don't want to be walking around wearing

Teddy Bear and Me

Shining, shining, shining. Wow is this statue spectacular.  This week I wanted to update you all on my visit to a newly built statue in Sacramento, Subtitled . All I can say that it is memorizing, unlike anything I have ever seen before. If you are ever in the area, stroll down the water front to find this amazing view. Metal plates reflects a mellow field, wide open land--and if you're lucky, you'll might witness a cute family of geese. This post features one of my new obsessions for winter, this teddy bear fur lined sweater that is the perfect combination of style and comfort. Whenever I wear this out, I feel as if I am still curled up bed, wrapped up in its warmth. A transportable blanket! And its so easy to style too. This muted pink shade pair well with just about any bottoms. Style with a black pair of leggings, or some dark washed jeans. Stunning. Let me know how you like this look! Is it this comfy look for you?  As always full outfit descripti
