OOTD - All that glitters

What do you wear for an impromptu lunch with a girlfriend? With the Southern California spring weather in full effect, I decided to take this glittery skort out for a spin.

Hope you are having a wonderful week!

OOTD - Boho Vibes

It's funny that my California online boutique is influenced by boho chic styles yet I don't really dress that way.

I decided to switch it up and dress up for an Easter egg hunt at our local park. I love that by styling a romper with a hat and sandals changes it up completely. This boho chic look screams festival fashion.

OOTD - Black and White

I'm a sucker for black and white and my closet reflects that. I found this Zara skirt in my closet and thought it would be perfect for a meeting last week.

I am so stoked my freelance projects are picking up. If you ever need content, digital marketing, social media services, let's work together.

OOTD - Casual chic

Happy Monday! It  was a busy week of OC Fashion Week and appointments the other week. I wore this look while prepping our closing night at the Arts Institute of Orange County and an afternoon in Newport Beach. I call this look a mix of casual chic.

OOTD - Spring vibes

Happy Monday! Last weekend, I celebrated my mom's birthday and the first day of spring. I thought why not dress up and celebrate the occasion. I definitely believe in dressing up and showing up.

YSL Touché Eclat Neutralizers

I recently received a YSL Touche Eclat Neutralizer in violet. I loved that this violet highlighter instantly corrects dull skin for a healthy looking glow. I'm all about that J-Lo glow and anything to create that is a plus.
After the shower, my routine is to do put on my skincare products and foundation. I then add this YSL Touche Eclat Neutralizer underneath my eyes to hide dark circles and brighten up the area. I blend it out with my Giorgio Armani foundation brush and voila! I feel instantly refreshed and ready to take on the day!
I am obsessed with all things beauty!

Happy Thursday! Spring is in the air and Easter is coming up! I always love this time of year.

Here are a few of my favorite handbags : Tess Large Clutch by Carlos by Carlos Santana - I love the simplicity of this clutch in this gorgeous peach perfect for spring or everyday. 
Studded Caviar Crossbody by BCBG - I am loving color especially this bright yellow crossbody. It's the perfect pop of color for neutral or weekend outfits.

Love & Whiskey x OC style Report

It's me with blogger babes Evelyne, Cassydy, Evie, Christine, Auna, Christine and Alexandra. 
Two weeks ago, I attended a Love & Whiskey x Salty Blonde Cut Co x OC Style Report media party to welcome the grand opening of their new location in Costa Mesa. 
It was great to attend the event as I've known Love & Whiskey when they were located in Irvine. Their new Costa Mesa  location is so cute and I love the positive vibes. The  cute boutique carries an array of clothing for men, women, children, accessories, and jewelry with a salon by Salty Blonde Cut Co too. They even carry selected jewelry from my too

OOTD - Hello Kitty

Happy Monday! Sorry for the hiatus last week. Work and life was way busy last week.

Castaways Park

Last weekend, I discovered a cool park / running trail in Newport Beach. It's off Dover and Pacific Coast Highway. When you walk up to the trail, it looks deceiving  with the usual wild plants but as you continue on the path, you get this amazing view of the Newport Back Bay. Wow!

OOTD - Distressed

Happy Wednesday, I'm back! Work and life has been keeping me busy. Wanted to share a cool distressed look I wore last week to sushi dinner. I love that this outfit has lots going on from the high low blouse, distressed jeans , long necklace, and lace up heels yet looks pretty cool altogether.

Remy Martin tasting

Happy Friday!

Last Saturday, my girlfriend Stacey Nguyen from Trendy Outings invited me to a Remy Martin tasting at OPM Huntington Beach.

It was a fun night of trying Remy Martin V & pineapple juice cocktail along with  Remy Martin's top cognacs.

VSOP  - This had notes of vanilla, followed by ripe apricot, baked apple, and an elegant floral notes. It is best enjoyed neat or with ginger ale. 1738 Accord Royal - This had notes of plum, fig marmalade, toffee and toasted bread. It works best with cocktails that include citrus flavors. XO Excellence - This includes aromas of late summer fruit and floral white flowers like jasmine. This is definitely one of the rich and velvety of Remy Martin cognacs. 
 It was neat hearing about how cognac is made, the oak barrels they use, and the history of Remy Martin.
