Photo Diary: Sunflower Glow

Happy Manic Monday Lovelies!
Hope everyone had an amazing weekend! (mine was very productive)
My AMAZING friend Elizabeth and I finally set a date and time to do our very first photo shoot together.
We created two very different looks and I'm in LOVE with both of them.
Our first look was inspired by a 50's vintage look combined with our modern city girl.
I was very nervous to pose at first but we spent our day laughing, catching up, and capturing some AMAZING shots.

Also, if you're a health freak like me, you should definitely check out Elizabeth's blog:
She's an inspiration to me and blogs about many different things from food, workouts, and overall health. If you want that taco dip and not the 1200 calories, see how she recommend you make it!

What I was wearing for the first shoot:
Pants: Guess
Blouse: Guess by Marciano
Pumps: Boutique in NY (old)
Jewelry: Juicy Couture, Nordstrom, Chanel earrings
Glasses: Gucci Aviators

Have a wonderful work week darlings!

FRIDAY FAVORITES: Denim Shirts & Award Time

Denim Shirts. Need I say more?
The most basic STAPLE essential EVERYONE needs in their closet.
It can be paired with jeans for a denim on denim look (try it with colored denim).
Throw it on with dresses, skirts, shorts, or anything and everything in between.
Great item to add to any outfit for a casual cool and chic look.

I am so excited to share with you guys my excitement.
The world of blogging has connected me to some AMAZING friends both local and international.
Yesterday, I found out that the beautiful LIA nominated me with this award!
It really made my day and wanted to tell you guys to check out her blog!
Her posts are always INSPIRATIONAL: The perks of being a girly girl

Some random facts about me:
Summer is my favorite season
I am super outgoing (staying home is not a part of my vocabulary)
Besides L.A, New York City and Miami are my two favorite cities in the States.
If I could, I would live in Paris for Spring season, Greece for the Summer, Italy for the Fall, and maybe come back to LA for winter time.
I will be a famous clothing designer someday! hehe =)
My obsession with dogs is unhealthy. I have a Shih Tzu, Lucky. He's my life.
I could eat ice cream and chips + guac all day EVERYDAY!

 Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend lovelies!

Working full time (which I do) can put a damper on the cute outfits departments for posts and blogging in general. You get up early, have limited time to shower, dab on some make up, eat breakfast, and realize you're just shy of being late. For these reasons and possible laziness, I want to apologize for the lack of blogging. We will be back to normal after this week. In the process of working on a new blog layout and outfit ideas!

On a brighter note, do you like the new NEON trend?
I'm interested in knowing what you think because this trend is here to stay!
It's going to be a big statement for Spring/Summer this year!
Kind of excited. Not going to lie.

Neon Street Style.
Absolutely FAB!

What do you think of the neon trend?

Obsession: Stacks & Stacks of RINGS

My obsession with rings is UNHEALTHY.
It doesn't take more than A SECOND to capture my attention.
Whether it's an image or in person, if I see it, I must have it.

Blingin' arm candy can now be seen in the magazines as well as the streets.
Everyone is loading up on their jewelry and wearing rings in VOLUME.
The effect of a hand full of rings is MAGICAL.

Simply Beautiful.
Have a wonderful Saturday lovelies!

Inspiration Days: Fashion & Travels

Recently, everything and anything has been inspiring me.
Look books, everyday life, people, and of course, fashion.
I am currently obsessing over the color WHITE.
I came across these pictures from the MANGO look book and was amazed.
The styling is perfect and Anna Selezneva looks FLAWLESS.
Although the weather in South Cali has been amazing, can someone please take me to Manarola, Italy.
Can't complain about sunshine but how amazing are these pictures?
*sigh* ONE DAY, ONE DAY *sigh*

Did you fall in love like I did? If so, pack your bags and let's meet here for a week.
It would be a dream come true.

On a brighter note.
Let's see what I need? More shoes, handbags, and jewelry.
Oh can’t forget, some more shoes and oh ya some MORE jewelry.
I fell in love with Annabelle Fleur’s style and her accessories are to die for. I would like all of them in my size PLEASE and THANK YOU.
Some funny humor to brighten up your day!
