Saturday Styles in LA 4/11

It’s been a while.

Today will be a very nice 70° degrees here in LA!


Try a body-con dress with a denim jacket or denim vest with some sneakers!

Here was my take on it-

Saturday Styles in LA 3/7

Holy cow ladies, it’s 83 degree today! If I didn’t work today I would totally opt for a bathing suit and a trip to the beach right about now. I guess work has it’s perks though… air conditioning! Please tell me that you are either going to the beach today or enjoying some nice A/C? I’d feel awful for you if were doing neither!

So, let’s get to the fashion. Today we are going with a boho style. Gotta love these Palazzo pants! A loose fit, wide legged pair of pants would go great with a tight cotton or lace crop top.


Peep this pair of Xhilaration pair of Palazzo pants from Target for $19.99!

Happy New Year!

New Year 2015 formed from sparking digits over black background

Good morning readers,

Happy New Year! Can you believe that it is 2015!? I know it’s cliche and everyone says it but the year has flown by so fast. Many, many THANK YOUs to all of our readers for your continuous support.

We hope you all had a great year! If not, we hope that 2015 brings you everything that you didn’t get in the year prior. I know that I am definitely wishing that this year goes a lot smoother than 2014. I’m not making any New Year resolutions because it is hard to keep those. I will, however, create small goals throughout the year. Like, paying off both credit card bills and getting a car (hey! a girl can dream, right!?)

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.

― Neil Gaiman

DIY: Crayola Pumpkin

Hi everyone!

The other day I created my first Pinterest DIY project: Crayola Pumpkin

CRAYOLA crayons
Blow dryer/ lighter
Scissors (optional)
Hot glue

I definitely recommend buying the brand Crayola because I bought Dollar Tree crayons and they didn’t melt with the blow dryer. Also, a glue gun is not shown in the first picture because when I started I didn’t that a blow dyer would blow off small bits of crayons off the pumpkin…

First step would be to put down some newspaper because it gets a little messy.
Break apart the crayons (if you have a small pumpkin) and glue them to the pumpkin (if using a hair dryer).

If you’re not using a hair dryer, then you can use scissors to grip the pieces of crayon while you burn the ends with a lighter. I ended up using the lighter to melt the non-Crayola crayons and then took a dark purple Crayola crayon and a silver Crayola crayon from my niece to finish the job.

It was quick and easy (with the lighter) and didn’t involve getting dirty from the pumpkin guts.
