Live while we're young

Let's call a spade a spade here, and say I've completely abandoned this blog. I feel like things have been crazy mad lately, and I've just been running around, completely exhausted from work, and having to wake up at 5am every day. Ugh. The holiday season, as beautiful as it is, is sometimes completely stressful. 
However, here are some pics I took a couple weeks ago. I've been obsessed with my camo jacket that I found at the Fairfax flea market for $10. I mean, you can't go wrong with that. Especially, when other stores are selling it right now, for $50-100. It's kinda huge, but I love that I can wear pretty much anything underneath. 
We're coming up on the 2nd week of December which means Christmas is right around the corner. I'm really excited for when my sister comes home next Friday, because that's when it really gets fun. If I don't post again, until after Christmas, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!

I'm shouting your name out loud, so loud, it's a chemical reaction...

Looking at these pics, it feels like this day was forever ago, even though technically it's only been a week and a half. Geo and I took a little mini break from the crazy, hectic, lives we lead to spend the day in Santa Barbara. 
The day could not have gone any better. Although, I was hoping it would be a slightly bit cooler-considering it's the beach and all. But other than that, we had lunch at our absolute favorite restaurant Olio Pizzeria, and walked up and down State St., until our poor feet couldn't take it anymore. 
Took the train back home, had a lovely sushi dinner, and caught up on Boardwalk Empire. 

All in all, a pretty standout day. Wish we could do it more often. :)

Now my life is sweet like cinnamon...

A week before my 27th birthday, I chopped off all my hair. My hairstylist took off almost 10 inches, that's how long my hair had gotten. And I got bangs. When I think of fall/winter, I always think of bangs. But for the last 3 years, I had kept my hair long, and as much as I love it that way I knew it was time for a change. So far so good. I'm really loving how easy and fast I can get ready. 

As part of my early birthday gift, my hubby took me and my sister to Disneyland. I had been talking about it for quite some time now, since I'm starting to feel older (now that I'm nearing 30) and really wanted to do something young and fun. It was definitely a nice surprise and was so nice getting to spend the day with 2 people I love most in the world. Not to mention, it was pretty empty for Disneyland standards, and we got to ride everything we wanted twice! 

I have more pics from other celebrations throughout my birthday week, that I cannot wait to share them with all of you. I'm so thankful for another year on this planet, and I'm super excited for what awaits around the corner.

When a boy loves you, oh he loves you so much.

It's been such a lovely summer. Yes, the weather has not been pleasant. And yes, the thing I hate the most apart from pickled anything, is sweating. But I've been having a grand ole time, which brings me to why I haven't really had time to blog. Apart from that and working, it's been a whirlwind. 

These photos were taken a couple of weeks ago, when my family and I went to San Diego for the weekend for my Uncle's wedding. It was so nice being by the water, relaxing and spending time with the people I love most. Wish I could do it more often.

Anyhoo, can't believe I'm working on a Holiday. But at least I got a chance to blog whilst at the office! Hurrah!

What I've been living for...

I've gone away heart and my head have been swept up by the summer Olympics. As it only happens every 4 years, I'm glued to my couch every evening after work catching up on what happened in London earlier that day. Staying away from all things Olympics, when you're sitting in front of a computer all day, is NOT easy. I don't want to know the outcome of a race London time, I want to watch it for myself. So I have to twiddle my thumbs, and wait it out. USA has been doing so great. Incredibly proud of my beloved America. 

Apart from working a lot and being a couch potato, I've managed to sneak in some fun every now and again, as evidenced from my photos above. Sister dates, love dates, family dates, and a helluva lot of food. Sounds like a perfect summer to me! Can't believe there's really only a month left...and I have not once put on a bathing suit. : /

Tell me I'm your National Anthem...

Hello y'all! I realize that this is a very late 4th of July post-11 days late to be exact-but late is better than never, right? And considering this is my 2nd favorite holiday of the year (1st is Christmas, of course!) I had to blog about it. So here it is, in all of it's red, white and blue glory. I started prepping for it 2 weeks in advance by making my own flag shoes. I was inspired by one of my best friends, who purchased a pair of plain white Toms look-alikes at a Rite Aid of all places-and customized it with her own art. I saw a picture of the actual Flag Toms selling on their site for $70. Absolutely did not want to spend that much money, so I took a red and blue sharpie to the plain white ones I got at Rite Aid, and there ya have it! I was pretty friggin pleased with the result. 
Kate had her annual 4th of July party in their beautiful backyard, and I was beyond excited to see that she had put up her huge flag, just for me! Needless to say, it created a wonderful backdrop for a lot of our pictures. And the food...omg, the spread was beyond amazing. That was pretty much all I did at the party- was eat. 

Could you tell I was going for a very retro feel with my look that day. My curls had died by the time I got to the party. But I was super inspired by Lana Del Rey. Especially after seeing her National Anthem video. 

Hope you all had a lovely Independence Day! Can't wait for next year! Xo.
