forever wandering

This set by Jac Vanek was calling my name the moment I set my eyes on it. Bell sleeves, cropped, and a maxi skirt- screams Jill Wallace all day long. I've been infatuated with matching sets for a while now and I don't see the infatuation dying down any time soon. FINE BY ME. 

I cannot believe tomorrow is already Friday. This week has simultaneously dragged/flown by. But the most important thing is the weekend is almost here. Wish me luck that I shake this cold I've been trying to fight as well as finally being fully moved out of my old apartment. Weekend warrior indeed!

festivus for the rest of us

It's happening people. We are knee deep in festival season! The energy during this time of the year is infectious. Everyone's shedding layers and amping up for spring/summer shenanigans. It's not surprising that the fashion really speaks to me. 

When it comes to festivals, I will have to admit that most of my favorite memories come from them. You really step into an alternate universe where your main focus is making it to the next show, dancing your face off with the friends that you (hopefully) find, all the while appearing somewhat like a human with your shit somewhat together. I will never forget these experiences and hope to make many more of them in the future. So God speed and good luck to everyone braving the heat/crowds/dehydration this season. The hangover really hurts, but boy is it worth it.

Well hello friends! I feel like so much has changed since I've last posted. I didn't realize I was on such a hiatus! Life, yah know? Since the last time we spoke regarding my cautious feelings towards Valentine's Day, I have been non-mother-effin-stop. By that I mean just trying to keep my head above water- but in a good way. Although being busy gives me moments of massive anxiety, I really do feed off of it. I like a challenge and work best under pressure. 

In case you didn't notice, I have a new blog look (finally!) and I MOVED! Finding a place in LA that is reasonably priced and has at least 80% of the things on your wish list is hard. But my prayers of finding a "unicorn" happened and I couldn't be happier. I've only been here for less than two weeks and I already feel so at home. I have tons of new outfits I'm excited to share and nonsense to spew so stay tuned!

Oh Valentine's Day...some people hate you, some love you, and some are like me and just look at it as an excuse to eat more chocolate. I've never gotten worked up about this holiday or most holidays for that matter. The tiny rebel that lives inside of me doesn't like being told how to feel on designated dates. I think it can be a nice reason to get extra cuddly with your cutie if you have one but I also don't see it as life crushing if you're single. It makes me sad when I see people get really down on themselves if they aren't in a relationship. Not to get too corny but I think the most important relationship is the one you have with yourself. Everything after that kind of just falls into place. My boyfriend is currently driving across the country right now so today I plan on running errands, finally unpacking, and apartment hunting. Now does that scream romance or what?! So whether you're single or have a boy toy by your side, I would like to send an extra dose of love from me to you! ::millions of heart emojis::

I'm back home and it feels SO GOOD. I had such a great trip overseas but nothing beats your own bed, readily available hot water, and a data plan. Constantly searching for wifi can get a little draining, ya feel meh? Even driving a car again was exciting. But of course returning home also comes with the harsh realities of life. One big task includes my search for a new place to live. Probably one of the more stressful life occurrences especially when LA is where you inhabit. Lord grant me serenity. But at least my wanderlust has been sufficiently satisfied...for now. Until we meet again angel babes!

Greetings from the Philippines! It is currently almost 1am and I am asking myself how am I still up?  Unlike my vampire-like ways back in LA, here I have been sleeping well before 10pm every night. WHO AM I? As imagined, I have been eating like a maniac every meal. Filipinos really know how to feed a gal. To the point where being wheelbarrowed out of places seems not only convenient, but necessary. 

Other than the amazing amount of food (do not forget the mangos!), I've been lucky to see so many beautiful places this country has to offer. A far cry from my first visit as a kid who did not appreciate anything. I'll be heading home to LA in a couple of days so these photos are fitting. This trip has wonderfully satisfied my wanderlust for now, but I also am excited to get back home. Now I just need to figure out how I am going to pack all these souvenirs. See you back in California friends!

a long way from home

Hello from Hong Kong! I've been nonstop for the past week so it's nice to take a little break. It seems like everyone around me is getting sick so I'm knocking on every piece of wood I see that I do not succumb to that fate. Other than dodging illness, my trip has been amazing so far. And best part is there is still a lot more to go! Hong Kong has exceeded my expectations. Definitely very far from my usual desert adventures. I can not wait to share all my photos but until then you can follow me on my Instagram. I also have a rad giveaway running until next Friday. It's a dress that you NEED.
