Lace Trimmed Denim Shorts + Basic Blouse

Lace trim shorts (6)During one of my Target hauls, I snatched up this lace trimmed denim shorts for less than $7. I paired it with a simple, basic blouse from H&M to give this juniors denim a little bit of an adult feel . With the simplicity of this outfit, I decided to carry my Betsey Johnson Ditzy floral bag to add some color. 

The bag comes with a long strap so you can sling it over your shoulder with ease. Lately, I’ve been fond of just carrying my bag by my side or simply holding a clutch. It gives my shoulder a break. Sometimes I feel like my “purse-carrying” shoulder takes a lot of pressure and hangs a lot lower than the other shoulder.

Portland + Highwaisted Shorts

Hello! It took a while, but I finally got some pictures up from the Portland/Seattle trip I took in July. We were there for 3 days and did a lot eating and sightseeing. Sadly, I didn’t get a chance to abuse the tax-free shopping. I love everything we did here, from the places we ate at to the beers to the friendly people to the parks we visited. I ‘m definitely adding this to my favorite destinations to revisit.

I hope you all enjoy the pictures!

Stripes + Floral w/ Bumble Bee

Stripes+Floral (2)

Bumble Bee loves her walks, so last weekend, I took her out on one of my  photo shoots. She loved it until she started to feel the heat on her little paws. Of course, at this point she sits and gives me her look of helplessness, so I can’t help it but pick her up. Don’t let the hair fool you, she’s only about 13lbs. After a nice wash, she looks like a chihuahua.

Hello and welcome. Is it just me or is summer going by really fast? With my busy work weeks, weekends are the only time I have to play with my closet. Lately, it’s been the basic California shorts and tank top attire. Before summer ends, I’d like to showcase all the outfits I’ve worn this summer. I hope I can get them all posted in the next few weeks.

Seattle + H&M Dress

Seattle (8)

Last month’s visit to Seattle, Washington was amazing. David and I landed in Portland, Oregon and drove 3 hours up to Seattle for the night. It was a beautiful drive on I-5 with rows and rows of green trees lining the highway. Coming from the dry and yellow San Jose hills, these trees were much appreciated. My lungs definitely enjoyed the crisp air that Seattle had to offer.

Piggy Paint + RGB 5-Free Nail Polish Review

Once in a while I feel the urge to paint my nails and when I do, I usually turn to nail polish that are 5-free, meaning they are free of chemicals dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, and camphor. Regular nail polish make my nail thin and brittle, so I’ve started a mini quest to test out 5-free nail polish. My reviews start with RGB and Piggy Paint.

RGB nail polish is made in the USA and is cruelty-free, according to their website. I purchased RGB nail Tint T1 from Amazon for $9. They usually run for $18 but I was lucky to find one for half the price. I applied 3 coats and was able to wear it for 2 weeks before it started to crack. After removing the nail polish with Piggy Paint Nail polish remover, I waited a week to see if my nails would crack. It was still pretty strong and thick. So far, I like this brand, and I would probably buy it again. I would like to test out other colors Continue reading
