Fashion Friday: Gold Details

How is it already the end of March! I have not been doing a great job of keeping up my blog, but I'm going to keep trying to post things. I've been busy freelancing and looking for a job. Bare with me as I try to get back into the groove of things.

I'm feeling pretty chubbs these days, but this is what I'm wearing on this windy day. I love Lauren Moffatt work. She makse such beautiful prints and styles. I was happy to snag some of her clothes on super sale. I also love Clare Vivier and should probably get my bag cleaned. Anyways, have a great weekend!

Fashion Friday: The Transport Tote

Happy Friday! Trying to get back into the grove of posting regularly again. I had the flu and then food poisoning, but now I'm back. I can't believe March is here and flying by!

I've been in the market for a tote. Have you guys seen the Mansur Gavriel bags? I'm in love with this tote. I love the clean lines and the pop of color. The price point is just too high for me right now. One day!

I still wanted a tote though, so I decided to go with the Transport Tote from Madewell. It is also a simple tote and I got to monogram it. I think it'll be a very versatile bag and a great addition to my bag collection. Anyways, have a great weekend everyone!

Fashion Friday: Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! I like being festive, but I may have gone a little too heart-crazy with my outfit, but tried to tone it down with my black jeans. I love jeans with ankle-zips. They are perfect for pedicures. No need to try to pull up them skinny jeans. Just unzip them and fold them up. Voilà! Also, I decided I'm going to just own my awkward photos. I can't take a serious picture like the rest of the blogging world without laughing or being silly, so here's to more awkward photos to come! Aight, enough of my random rant, I hope everyone has a great day full of love, candy, flowers, and other treats for you. Go treat yo self!

Happy Chinese New Year!

Welcome to the year of the horse! As a Thai-Chinese-American I get to celebrate 3 new years! Here's to new year number 2! Ever since I was a kid, my dad always told me to make sure my home was clean, so I can go into the new year with a clean slate and good luck. I still make sure to do that every year before Chinese New Year. I also like to wear something red to symbolize the good fortune and joy that I hope is ahead as well! I like to try to get as much good luck as I can get! :)

Another new year, another chance for me to reflect on what I've done so far. This month has been kind of crazy. It has been a nice break from work work, but it can still be stressful trying to figure out what's next for me and living from project to project. I am excited that I got to knock two things off my 1st new year's resolutions: starting a blog and opening an Etsy shop! What's ahead in February who knows! Only one way to find out! Thanks for following along my random journey! Here's to more fun to come, hopefully! Now go eat some Chinese food to celebrate!
