Lucky FABB

I am beyond excited to volunteer tomorrow at the Lucky fashion and beauty blogger conference At the Annenberg Community Beach House in Santa Monica. Oh what to wear!

To catch the live stream tomorrow or more details, check their site. So excited that Zac Posen and Jessica Alba will be there.

Iron Press

Image
We went to Iron Press at soco in costa Mesa yesterday to meet my brother and his friends for an early dinner.
This new spot was pretty packed for 5:30pm on a Friday. There were a lot of young professionals to hipster kids (aka my brother haha!). I loved that the place was baby friendly with a high chair and low counters. The service was great too and you can see them prepare their order right in front of you.
I got the fried chicken and waffle with cole slaw and jalapeño maple syrup on the side. Waffle fries had spicy ketchup (mixed with sriracha) but I got regular ketchup for my lil one.




Brother got the same thing but with jalapeño maple syrup on it.




Definitely a cool place to go!

Herb Ritts exhibit at The Getty

I received my Getty newsletter and was reminded of this great fashion photography exhibit there. Now until August 26, check out the Herb Ritts exhibit at the Getty. Admission to the Getty is free but parking is $15.  The beautiful garden there is worth it alone.

It's a casual day so decided on something cheery.

Le Pain Quotidien

Image
I had such a yummy lunch at Le Pain Quotidien on Monday. I got Tuna nicoise Tartine and a Mediterranean plate with hummus, quinoa and babaganosh. Everything was perfectly seasoned and fresh. If only I could eat like that all the time. Mmm!




Love the radish and cucumber on my Tartine



Mediterranean plate goodness

Giorgio Armani cosmetic purchases

Image
Last Saturday, thought I'd get my makeup done at Bloomingdale's and splurge on new Armani make up.

The fabric blush is a nice coral for a natural tint and is long lasting.




I got a refill of my luxurious silk foundation. The best foundation ever if you ask me.




Thanks for doing my makeup, Missy! Nothing makes you feel good than getting pampered at the makeup counter.

OOTD - Skirt

Image
I decided to play dress up today. I love this waterfall-like skirt I got in the Philippines. 
I'm wearing an Old Navy tank, The Limited sweater, TG Collection skirt, and Tahari flats. Necklace is from Forever 21.







Forever 21 purchases

Image
I am in love with the giant Forever 21 at Cerritos Mall. Two stories, yeah!
Last Wednesday, we killed time at that mall before dinner. There was an awesome buy one, get one free sale.
Being the pregnant fashionista that I am, I had to get something. I got a coral maxi dress (not pictured), floral plus size tee I can make a dress, and blue tube top. I think these items will transition nicely post-birth when I'll need to lose the baby weight. Way cute, huh?

Old Navy purchases

Image
Last Saturday, I was bored after din and decided to go to Old Navy. They had a great sale going on. The coral tank was only $12.50 and sweat shorts were $10. I love that I can use these during and after my pregnancy.

Had such a nice baby sprinkle with family and friends. I'm blessed.

I'm wearing an Express dress, Forever 21 necklace, and black Disney flip flops.



Draw Something

Image
My favorite iphone game has to be Draw Something. My bro introduced me a month or so ago. I love that it's turn based with no time limit. You're incentivized to play so you can earn coins for more colors versus the standard black, red, blue, and yellow you get.

Here are some of my favorite drawings from friends:















Wanna play? My name is sunnyfujiblue.

OOTD - Poof tee

Playdate day again!
I'm wearing a Poof tee, Brass Plum leggings and black Toms.







Great Dane Baking Company

Image
My girlfriend told me about the most amazing brownies at the Great Dane Baking Company. I put it on my Yelp bookmarks to visit one day.
This week was my chance.
This Huntington Beach bakery is a little hard to find, but thank goodness for Google Maps. My lil one and I walked in on weekday afternoon and were amazed at all the treats on display. Chocolate is definitely a theme here. I decided on four brownies - two with chocolate chips and two with nuts. Two were for my friend who told me about this place.
Look at the yummy goodness. Can't wait to return.

OOTD - Jason Wu for Target tee

Image
Time for music class!

I'm wearing a Jason Wu for Target tee, Additions capri leggings, and Downtown Disney white flip flops.



OOTD - Yellow

Image
My favorite color has to be yellow. I decided to go with a bohemian chic look. I must be inspired by Coachella. (I wonder if I should forgive my bro for ditching my shower next weekend to go to Coachella. Hmm.)

I'm wearing a yellow Gap tank, no name white peasant skirt and white Downtown Disney flip flops. My white and gold handmade bracelet is from Spain.



DIY eggs in a basket

Image
I read about eggs in a basket from a blog and decided to try it last weekend. It's pretty easy and yummy.










Steps:
1) Grab a piece of bread and cut a hole in the middle.
2) Put some butter in your frying pan.
3) Put the bread in and brown it on both sides.
4) Put more butter in the middle of your toast hole.
5) Crack your egg in the hole.
6) Hurry and flip it over.
7) Be quick or else you might burn your egg and toast.
8) Grab your toast and egg. Enjoy!

OOTD - Stripes (again!)

Image
I must love stripes.

I'm wearing a Uniqlo stripe sweater dress I got in New York years ago. Who knew it would be such a comfy maternity dress?


OOTD - Khaki and Black

Image
I love this color combo of khaki and black.

I'm wearing an Ann Taylor top, tank top, Motherhood maternity corduroys, and black Toms. My bracelets are inspired by The Beauty Department's post on arm candy. Sadly, I don't remember where I got my bracelets. I think the silver one is from Mexico and white one is from Europe.
