At 2 PM today, I decided to drink a cup of black coffee. I thought it'd help me concentrate on doing some work but instead I got too excited about tonight's event. I decided to pour the energy into blogging instead. If you don't already know, I love crew neck sweaters and you'll probably see me in them frequently. My look is usually pretty simple and easy to throw on. I bought this amazing sweater and didn't want to wear it with just jeans. FYI, it's from Forever 21. No one could believe it and quite frankly, I was surprised myself when I found it online. The gold hearts are stitched on so it looks well made. I couldn't figure out what to wear it with until I came across this bright blue neoprene skirt. Both go so well together!

I've been MIA because I decided to go on a spontaneous road trip to Southern California this past weekend. My friend Kat is insanely good at persuading me to do things and well, I ended up in Anaheim and Santa Monica for the weekend. I decided not to bring my laptop (which is SO hard, am I right!?) and tried to stay off my phone when I was hanging out with friends. If I was on my phone, it was mostly to take pictures. I can't wait to update the blog so if there's two posts per day, don't be too surprised.
Also, I'm going to try to attend this event because I love Obey Clothing and Azalea is super cool. The boutique carries awesome brands and I'm excited to see what's there tomorrow. Hope to see you there!
Stay updated with me on Instagram and Twitter. X

Hi everyone! I'm trying to stay on schedule here with Mani Monday and my crazed studying schedule. One more test this Wednesday and I can finally play blog catch up. I want to check out what's been going on with NYFW too. All my updates have been from my Instagram.
I'm currently using Julep's Zelda along with Revlon's Marchesa nail wraps. I was going through my nail polishes and realized I had extra nail wraps left over so I thought, why not mix and match? The metallic look turned out super cute!

One of my early memories of being introduced to fashion is when I was growing up in New York City and my mom took me to GAP. I remember trailing after her and running my hands through all the denim on hangers. The store was HUGE...okay, I was a short and tiny kid at the time. You're probably thinking, "Oh, big deal. It's just GAP!" For me, it was and is a big deal. GAP is a brand of clothing that I find myself always coming back to. It's where I buy versatile pieces that I find myself reaching for over and over again. Plus when there are sales (I'm talking about those extra 50% off sales), everything is such a steal. I find myself at the register wanting to put things back and that feeling disappears when the sales associate tells me, "You're getting a great deal! This is $3." Well then, what's one more t-shirt?

Yay! How's this for consistency? I'm sneaking away time from the books to post this. The event was a pop up boutique that showcased pretty designs and jewelry. I went to support Kathleen from Inspirafashion-it had been way too long since the last time we saw each other! She was co-hosting the event with Kate from The Fancy Pants Report. I also ran into fellow UCD Aggie, Jenn of ClothesEncounters. I've never been to the W San Francisco and the environment inside was just so swanky. I would definitely go there again to hang out and catch up with friends.

Happy Monday! Or as happy as it can be anyway until Friday, right? In celebration of Lunar New Year's, I decided to paint my nails red which is a big deal for me. I always feel like I can never find the right red shade. There's warm reds, cool reds, orange reds...the list goes on and makes my brain spin. I was at CVS when I came across Sally Hansen's #360 Diamond and Rubies shade. It's such a gorgeous red and I managed to talk myself into buying it. While I don't think it's quite "diamond" strength, it was easy to apply and it was cheap!
This weekend was pretty crazy with a ton of things going on. There was my grandma's birthday dinner, a pop-up shop event at W San Francisco and Lunar New Year's all weekend long. My grandma's birthday was very sweet and intimate. She made long noodles for all her grandchildren to live a long life! As for pop-up shop event, I'll post a recap of that hopefully tomorrow. I've got two exams coming up so I'm studying (attempting to anyway) non-stop. Wish me LOTS of luck!
