It's two more days until my birthday. Two! Normally I'd be ecstatic about this but I feel like I'm 24 turning 30. I keep thinking about where I see myself in the next few years and I think the fact that I'm not sure is what is keeping me up at night. When in muddled thoughts, I say go window shopping. I discovered Reiss when I was living in New York and went shopping with my fashionable mentor, Dream Sequins. (Check out her blog if you're dying for awesome designer profiles and shoes.) I recall stepping in and thinking, "Gawd, this store is beautiful." I couldn't buy anything at the time but I never forgot about it. I made a mental note that if I was ever searching for something special, I'd go here...and I did. Sort of. I went to the online store and ordered a pair of what I've been calling my birthday heels.

Since then, I've been on and off the site and discovered beautiful artwork by a guest illustrator named Alessia on the Reiss blog. I was curious to see more photos and went onto her blog, The Red Dot. I think it's so cool and inspiring because she's a scientist! Talk about science and art coming together. I'm a huge fan of the first picture of heels. It'd be perfect framed :)

Completely off anyone else addicted to Cadbury Mini Eggs? I just discovered them and now have a bag next to my table. I'm going to be sad when Easter is over and they're off shelves. I should stock up...

Happy First Week of Spring!

In January I made a quick trip to New York. Why did I leave good ol' California weather to be in the freakin' cold? I don't even know. I knew I made a big mistake when I finished packing and saw only half my suitcase was filled with clothes meant for warmer weather. You know, since tank tops and shorts don't take up that much room compared to bulky jackets. I never liked buying jackets because I always ended up wearing the same one which is my Aeropostale sherpa-lined parka. I went onto Oasap and knew I'd find something cute-this perfect olive green parka! It's really amazing and I love how the inside feels like a blanket. (Did you notice I like furry lined jackets? I do. I get cold super easy!) Immediately I placed an order and hoped it would come on time for New York.

It didn't. I sucked it up and wore my Aeropostale parka the entire time. The crazy thing is when I got back to SFO, I ended up losing that jacket. Oh well, now this new one has been my go-to!

Excuse the mess

It's getting to be late March and I'm glad I didn't make any New Year's resolutions to blog every day. I've been on the fence about giving my blog a new look and decided to finally go through with it. The layout is perfect and exactly what I was looking for: minimal and organized. On that note, I'm going to try to stay on a schedule when it comes to blogging. I should come up with a calendar or designate a specific time to this. I miss blogging and it shouldn't be this hard. I'm starting fresh, beginning with this first blog entry. Also another thing I wanted to work on is creating new I deleted my old account and here's my new YouTube channel. I'm going to get over being awkward and like Nike, just do it.

The amazing Stella from YesStyle recently introduced me their new sister site, YesWalker. Have you ever been on YesStyle? I find myself spending hours looking at what I'd like to buy. You know the drill, browse and save in cart. The site can be a lot to go through and that's why I enjoy their new site. It's not overwhelming at all and filled with shoes. If you don't know me, know that I love shoes. I was sent the buckled cognac boot that I paired easily with t-shirt and jeans. (Both shirts are actually men's which is why knotted the button-up so it was less baggy.) It was hard to pick one pair and I settled for these because of the platform and chunky heel. People say, "Beauty is pain" but in this case, my feet seem to disagree and prefer comfort.

I forgot to mention the best part-it's buy one, get one free and free shipping! Seriously, take advantage of all the cute oxfords for the Spring time.
