Polka Dot Fun

Since summer is just around the corner, I figured it was a time for a change. When I think of change I go straight for my hair... Goodbye long hair, it is time to replenish and get my hair back to healthy!

Today's post is a casual outfit for a dinner date with my mom and boyfriend. My mom is the typical Asian mom, you will never leave her house empty handed or hungry. She told me she was craving gold fishes the other day and decided to buy the bulk size at Costco... so now Cole and I had to take some home to pack for snacks during our work week... I wonder where I get my spending habits from? But I love that lady to death.

White Out

I've lived in Washington since I was about 4 years old and I've only gone up to the Space needle maybe twice? This past weekend, since my bf's sister was in town from SD we decided to make our way up there! Thank gosh the rain held out... Because I decided to wear an all white outfit.

Easter Sunday

I can't tell you how excited I am that it is Easter! Since I'm a Catholic, I participate in lent every year which is giving up things in your every day life for 40 days and 40 nights. This year I gave up facebook and the hardest one, meat (minus Seafood)! I appreciate vegetarians and vegans so much but I don't think that lifestyle is for me...

Outfit Details || Coral Pencil Skirt: Last year but similar here and here || Black Top: Thrifted similar here and here || Cheetah flats similar here || Juicy Couture Necklace: Here

My mom has always taught me to count your blessings and not your stressings, and I couldn't be more in love with that quote. I thought we were going to have a rainy Easter and yet, it is nice and bright outside. :) Happy Easter my loves! XO

Arts & Crafts: Disney World Outfits

"All of our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. "- Walt Disney World

I am a huge Disney fan for those of you who didn't know so when I found out my roommate was taking her babies to Disneyworld... imagine my jealousy! I mean, I was envious of a 5 year old and a 2 year old.. but it was Disneyworld! It is forever on my bucket list. But in the midst of my jealousy, my mind went berserk with all the clothing I was going to make them for their trip. This is what today's post is all about. Aside from being a Disney fan, I also do a lot of arts and crafts on the side and this project was way too much fun. Let's just say there are a lot of rainy Saturdays here in WA..

All it takes is a few white t-shirts and some disney inspired imagination. How adorable are they? 

Now it's just me and my dog in this house... They can come home anytime now!

xoxo Happy Sunday my loves! Please let me know if you'd like directions on how to make the above.

My perfect imperfections

If a man every said I "love your curves and all your edges, all your perfect imperfections," you should probably marry that man. If you haven't guessed by now, that is me quoting one of my favorite artist ever, John Legend. I love that man and I love the words he write, Chrissy Teigen you are one lucky lady!!

The reason I bring that up is because my handsome boyfriend has inspired this post. The other day I asked him to snap some pictures of my outfit before we headed off to work, and let me tell you... we are not morning people. 8:30 am is way too early... these pictures are proof of that! But then he brought up a good point... most bloggers share the best pictures, the picture perfect best type of pictures and he just asked me why not show my imperfect pictures? So I thought why not? 

Today I'm sharing my top five perfect imperfections. We all have them and its always a love/hate type of relationship with them. And as they say, once you've accepted your flaws no one can use them against you or you can think like Beyonce every morning, "I woke up like this... flawless!" :) I hope this helps you guys get to know me a little better. 

My Perfect Imperfections:
1) My hair! I have the finest, thinest hair ever. I'm sure a new born baby has more hair on their heads then I do! But I've grown to love it and appreciate that I have my hair. Gotta count your blessings.
2) My skinny legs... I've tried everything to gain some weight there and it is just nearly impossible! My friends call them chopsticks.... -_- But the plus side is that they look toned all the time!
3) I worry all the time. I take prepare for the worst, hope for the best to the extreme. But I am learning every day that worrying is normal, worrying all the time not so much. When I get a little stressed, I go on a run or take some breathers. I am getting better every day! :)
4) The size of my forehead/head period.  My brother in law likes to tell me my head size is extra large... I say its to hold the size of my large brain! :)
5) I'm independent, a little too much sometimes. I like to take care of myself and spoil myself and sometimes this irritates my boyfriend. He considers me stubborn and I agree. I just don't like feeling like I can't do it myself.

This last picture cracks me up, hopefully it brings you a chuckle too! I look crazy!

Scarf Obsession

My roommate has such an obsession with scarves that it caused me to have an obsession with scarves. That's the plus side of having a roommate to share things with. I overdose on jewelry, she overdoses on scarves and we just mix and match as we go along. :) 

The weather is still a little uncertain here in WA, one day it'll be bright and sunny the next day rainy and windy. I figured a pop of color here or there will brighten up the mood. To start of my spring time looks, I decided pink pants was the best choice.

Outfit Details|| White blazer (similar here) || White Tee (similar here) || Pink Pants (similar here) || Scarf (here) || Gold flats (similar here and here) || Yellow bag: from Ross but similar here

Have a bright week my loves! :)
