Toddler shoe shopping tip

If you need to buy shoes for your toddler, Target has a great selection of adorable ones. I had my little one try on $26.99 Converse sneakers and $13.99 Circo Mary Janes.

The purple ones won, of course.

Crystal Cove

On my unwritten bucket list, I have walk the Crystal Cove trails. I finally did the other day. The trick is to park at Crystal Cove Promenade and you can start at Crystal Cove Heights to Los Trancos. You get a lot of hill action to work your arms and legs. Double when pushing a stroller. I definitely recommend this walk for anyone wanting to try something new.

Arm swag

My brother has been rocking arm swag even before it got all popular. I want to copy him and rock even more bracelets than him.

I recently went to Banana Republic and Gap outlets and got these great bracelets to add to my collection.

Aren't these sweet?

OOTD - Safari time

The weather is finally getting chilly. Yay!

I'm wearing a Victoria's Secret black tee, Hollister olive cargo pants and black Puma Sneakerinas. Necklace and bracelet are from Etsy.


It's crazy lipstick has made a comeback. It used to be all about lip gloss or lip stain.

I remember wearing a burgundy shade in high school and college and just had to get one. This Clinique shade is After Party. I think it looks great on tan skin like mine. It was only $10.50 at the Carlsbad cosmetic outlet too.

Pizza and Chicken Love Letter

My brother suggested lunch at Pizza and Chicken Love Letter the other day after we took my toddler to a bounce house.

The food here was delicious. The highlight for me had to be the bulgogi pizza with mushrooms. The Korean and Italian fusion totally worked.

If you are ever in Garden Grove, be sure to check this place out.

OOTD - Rainbow bright

When will this heat wave end? Ugh!

I'm wearing a Forever 21 tube top and H&M orange shorts with Franco Sarto sandals. These are my first bright shorts and they're kind of fun to wear.

July Birchbox review

July's Birchbox was a collaboration with Glamour magazine. I was totally stoked to try bb cream and liquid eyeliner.

Here's what I thought:
amika Obliphica Hair Treatment - Sadly, I can't find my sample so couldn't try it.

amika Obliphica Nourishing Mask - 500 ml - I tried this as a deep conditioner and this thick mask made my hair feel silky smooth. Love it!

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner - This is my favorite Birchbox item ever. I can line my eyes in a snap.

boscia B.B. Cream SPF 27 PA++ - I use this when I don't want to wear any make up. It comes out in a tan color and has SPF. It's definitely lighter than tinted moisturizer.

LÄRABAR® über - My toddler and I tried it. Nice nutty flavor.

Harvey Prince Hello - 50 ml - I'm not a perfume gal but the citrus scent feels fresh.

Birchbox Exclusive Earbuds - I don't use earbuds but plan on giving to my brother. Neat that there's a spotify playlist included.

Candice street style

Ever since I can remember, my friend Candice has the most amazing style. She visited me recently and I was immediately in love with her clothes and shoes. Everywhere we went in Venice loved her white dress too.

Dress is French Connection, Shoes are BCBG

Dress is Top Shop, purse is from Muse

OOTD - AE flirty top

Sometimes I plan my outfits and this one was something I just grabbed.

I'm wearing an American Eagle top (got it on sale) and Miss Posh shorts along with Webster Miami flats.

OOTD - Colorblocking dress

I've been gravitating towards bright colors recently like this colorblocking dress. It's polyester so a little hot to be wearing in this weather but cute nonetheless.

I'm wearing a Love Riche dress from Heavenly Couture and Franco Sarto sandals. Bracelet is gift from my mom. 

Sephora goodies

I love going into Sephora. It's like a candy store for cosmetics. With a $50 gift card armed in my purse, I was on a mission to get some goodies.

This Korres Vitamin E primer is my favorite. It makes me dewy and keeps my foundation on for a while.

This color revealing balm gives me a pinky lip color and moisturizes my often dry lips.

H&M best buy

I have had a love affair with H&M ever since I went to their New York, San Francisco, Barcelona and Madrid stores. I was so glad they opened spots in Irvine and Costa Mesa.

A stop to South Coast is never complete without going to H&M. I was able to get orange shorts for $12.95 and coral denim jeans for $24.95.

I'm slowly infusing color in my fall wardrobe. Yay!

OOTD - Love Audrey dress

Happy lovely Wednesday! I'm thinking of a beach workout today.

Zara sale

I am in love with the Zara sale at South Coast.

I got three items for $40. The orange and blue peplum tube tops were only $9.99 each and green denim jeans was $19.99.

I think I'll be doing bright colors for fall. It should liven up my wardrobe.
