Baesic Vday

February 14, 2015
"True nobility is when you can feel superior to your former self" - Kingsman
Inspired by this strange warm weather to bring out the ol' knee highs. And the rest of the outfit was all about comfort, layers (for possible change of temperature throughout the day), and cuteness for this "Galentines" sorta day. Check out the rest of the post for more outfit details!

Loco for my Co-Co

February 1, 2015
PC: A.S. and R.H.
Decided to dress up, but still wanted to be extremely comfy and casual on the last day of my counselor training. Ended up being eligible for an impromptu #ootd photoshoot with a few of the other extremely fashionable counselors. Read the rest of the blog to see the results.

Sweater Heaven

January 30, 2015
The annual 99 cent sweater sale to me is probably equivalent to Christmas Day for a young child. 
Just a handful of what I scored that night.

Thrown Together

January 24, 2015
Photographer: AJL
Sweater: Forever 21 || Black dress: Forever 21 || Boots: Dr. Martens || Necklace: gift
It feels so satisfying and thrilling to be able to get dolled up after being sick and gross for a week and a half. Looking and feeling like a zombie for so long made dressing up so much more fun. And I'm back to fashion posts! I got all dolled up for a friend's sweet sixteen. Read the rest of this post for more outfit details (Thanks Kuya, a.k.a. 'Lil AJ' for finally decent, fashion-blog-worthy photos)!

My last Secret Santa exchange for the Christmas 2014 season finally occurred last weekend with my old high school bunch. We travelled to SF, explored the city, hung out together, then explored the city some more.

Joyous Journeys: Disneyland

December 28-29, 2014
"The happiest place-", yeah you get it. It's rare when I go to Disneyland and can still remember most of the experience. I don't know if this, my interest and analytical views of films, or my sociology class on pop culture, ruined the "magic". Either way, Disneyland is still fun with the right people, and can provide different experiences at different moments in life. I actually let go and rode rides when I typically just sit back and watch or experience exhibits and shows. Read on to satisfy your Disney-cravings.

Joyous Journeys: Las Vegas

Sweater: Mom's || Coat: Forever 21 || Jeans: Levi's || Shoes: Dr. Martens

The day after Christmas, it was time for my family to head out on our five-day road trip traveling across California to Las Vegas, then Disneyland, and lastly Hollywood. The rest of the photos (as you click to read on) don't make sense unless you were actually there. So I guess, enjoy them as individual photographs, or if you so choose, as an eclectic whole collection. Enjoy~

"I'm, dreaming of a White Christmas"...

I celebrated my first Christmas in the snow with my family visiting from the Philippines. It was a fun journey, but short-lived because they couldn't handle the cold for much longer. We still had a fun experience together, and having family together on this holiday was incredible for me. Read on for more photos of my snowy ventures!
