Ever since the veterinarian diagnosed Bumble Bee with obesity, I’ve changed her diet and have been taking her out for two walks per day. She weighed in at 18lbs but a dog her size should be 13-14lbs, so as a family, we all set out to help her lose that extra 4lbs.
We Continue reading
I know. I know. It’s been a while since my last post. My apologies! The wedding is taking up all my time. Although, I am working on a few post of my DIY stuff to share with you later. So I haven’t completely forgotten about my blog. =]
Today, I am posting a very petite-friendly A-line silhouette dress with a cut-out along the waistline. It’s a high neckline tank dress and makes for a conservative dress for any family affair. I took this piece out Continue reading
Hi! Just dropping by to share a quick outfit I wore recently. Kimonos make me feel like I’m wearing a light weight robe, but in a comfortable classy way. I got this one at TJMaxx. I chose to wear the kimono over a black shirt to allow the colors on the kimono to pop. I also tried to stick with a monochromatic look by wearing green bottoms and booties in a different shade of green.
Here are some of my other Continue reading
Hello! With all the holiday sales going on right now, I wanted to take advantage and shop around for outfits for upcoming events, like weddings, holiday parties, etc. I’m not one to pass up a good deal Continue reading
After a long day of venue shopping in the hills of Morgan Hill and Gilroy, I took a break to snap some pictures. The hills were turning green from the rain we just got and the air was so crisp. It’s beginning to look like we will have the wet winter Continue reading
Hello! Today I experiment with monochromatic colors. As we shorties all know, wearing one color from head to toe gives the illusion of a taller look. This explains why I look a lot taller and slimmer when I’m in all black. But who wears all black all the time? That’s no fun. I went for a happier color, like purple. My late grandma loved this color, so when I miss her I throw on some purple and it feels like she’s close by.
This Banana Republic cardigan runs big. I am wearing an extra small in petite. The difference I saw with the petite and regular is that the sleeves are longer on the regular size. Even with the petite cardigan, I still have to fold the sleeves up a bit. If you are looking for something that’s fitted, avoid this. The cotton/nylon/viscose material creates a boxy look.
Here are some of my other favorite corduroys:
I don’t wear these floral corduroys often because it’s a bit snug around the waist. I usually fit size 0P at Loft, but the 0P in these were loose around the thighs. The 00P fit better on the legs, so I went with 00P. I always go with the tighter fit because sometimes the material stretches.

Happy Cyber Monday! There are lots of great sales going on right now. I’m so tempted to get everything for myself.

Target.com has free shipping and that’s good enough for me. Shopsense has a helpful list of all the promotions happening now. Check it out here: Shopsense Blog. Another great source to reference Continue reading
Hi! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I spent most of mine with my family. I won’t get to see most of them during this week’s holiday, so this weekend made up for it. Due to Thanksgiving, it’s going to be a short week at work so I’m excited for that.
For Continue reading
The chilly wind is finally here so the scarves came out this weekend. We only have 1 more month of fall and then winter officially begins. As usual, I am hoping for lots of rain so I can start up my garden again. Continue reading
As the weather gets colder here, I begin to miss the warm Hawaii sun, which got me thinking about my most recent trip to Maui. I realize I didn’t get a chance to share this travel with you. David and I spent five nights in Maui at The Royal Lahaina Resort doing nothing but eating and relaxing.
Hawaiian Air charges for a bag check-in so I decided to squeeze everything into my carry on. I try to avoid checking in a bag as much as possible to save time. The thought of waiting at the baggage claim and then struggling to catch my bag before it spins away from me is never Continue reading
