Goodbye 2012

Happy New Years Eve!

 I decided to take a mini break from blogging to relax and kick back more with my loved ones for the holidays. Thanks to everyone for the holiday greetings in my last post! You guys are so sweet! So now that we're about to enter in the New Year of 2013. I thought it would be fun to reflect back in the last five months since I started this blog for 2012. At the time, I introduced you guys to our furbaby - Kobi, found out how much it costed for my love of makeup, and showed you guys some of my mad cooking skills with recipes such as Oyster Chowder and Honey Garlic Spareribs.

Now here's a recap of outfits that I had shown.. in no particular order. Enjoy! ;)











Hope you guys all have a Happy New Years!! Stay safe and let's ring into 2013!
Can't wait to see what's in store and all the new beginnings for the new year! 
There will be some fun stuff ahead! I just know it. ^__^

Goodbye 2012!

Merry Christmas Eve!! ^__^

If you have read my prior outfit post, you would've seen my other polka dot sweater in the mint green goddess color. I really liked the sweater so I bought them in two different colors! This is the other one. :) I love the camel brown color to pair it with other colors like my purple plum skinnies! Such a great and fun way to add a print and color together! 

I would love to say thank you guys all so much for the wonderful comments and support. I can't express how thankful I am. I feel like I've made great friends here on the blogosphere, Instagram, and Twitter. It's only been five months for my blog! I can't wait to see what's in store for 2013!

I hope you and your loved ones have a Happy Holidays and stay safe! 

Holiday Disney Part 2

Friday, December 21, 2012

Happy Friday!!

I promised more photos last week from my Disney vacation, so here they are! If you haven't seen the first part of my holiday photos, here is the post! My Hubs and I miss it so much that we might be planning another trip for maybe next December. haha.. Enjoy! :)

At ToonTown all decked out in Christmas. Love the cartoon-y tree!
FYI - I'm wearing my Firmoo sunglasses!

 Another ride pic! This time it was on the Tower of Terror! 
Obviously, my hubby was more scared than I was. ;) hahaha.. 

 Heard about this Dole whip and we had to try it! We didn't get to go to the Dole Plantation when we went to Hawaii (Oahu) so we decided now was the time. We also got a button to celebrate the 'moment'. 
It was SO good! We went back to get another one!

 It's a Small World all lit up in beautiful lights!

 Universal Studios time!

 They were starting to deck it all out in Grinchmas. 

 The Grinchmas Tree!

The Simpsons ride! It was fun but super dizzy.. lol!  

Last night of our stay! The Christmas trees in our hotel were so pretty! :)

Thank you guys so much for reading! It's a short post for today. I'm ready for the weekend!
Guess what? Christmas is almost here!! Just four more days! 

Who's getting excited like me??

In the Backway

Happy Hump Day!

Now don't let this sunny weather behind me fool you on what Seattle really is right now... I had taken these photos a few weeks ago and almost forgot about them.. until now! haha.. The last time I had shown this bow top in an outfit was from my very first outfit post ever! Oh how time flies...! 

I love trying to find new places to take pictures at. Just a different backdrop once in a while is nice sometimes. Don't you think? We were driving and found this big open field area in the backway that's pretty secluded and thought it was perfect to take these outfit photos. So we stopped on the side of the road and took them. We had maybe one or two drive-by stare. haha.. Anyways - I thought this berry red/pink blazer was lovely and the color just caught my eye. If you can't tell already.. I'm trying my best to choose color instead of the standard grey and black. It's hard but I'm trying! I still love my grey and black! ;)

How do you feel about colored blazers?

Studded Olive

Happy Monday.. why does the weekend go by so fast?? 

I am missing Disneyland already. Le sigh.

Originally I had walked past this top but couldn't stop thinking about it.. so I walked back and bought it. I thought was really cute with the gold studs on the collar/shoulder and that fact it's in olive green. I don't have a lot of olive green pieces in my closet. Kinda like a military inspired look to me. So with a long black tank top (to cover the booty) and my favorite pair of grey booties at the moment. I got myself a cute outfit! Optional - add the spiked bracelets for some edgy look. ;) I omit the jacket but if I were to walk outside in this freezing cold Seattle weather.. believe me, there will be a jacket. lol!

Christmas countdown has begun! Just a week and a day away!! I've just finished up some more Christmas shopping over the weekend (the malls are insane!) but am still not finished. I know.. I'm so bad. I'm usually on top of it but with being away on vacation and having some family time, it's been extremely busy. Let's hope I get it all done this week! 

Are you done with your Christmas shopping?

Holiday Disney Part 1 + Firmoo Winners!

Friday, December 14, 2012

Happy Friday!!

As some of you may have read, I recently just got back from a Disneyland vacation with the Hubs. Every year we always say we'll go around the holidays to go check out all the pretty decorations and each time we would postpone it until the next following year. So finally enough was enough and we booked our tickets! I was getting super excited like a little kid again. It's been over 12 years since I've last been to Disneyland! And if you follow me on Instagram, you would've seen some snippets while I was there!

So as promised, here are some photos I took along the way. We had bought the park hopper 3-day pass so we kept going back and forth between Disneyland and California Adventures!

Warning - this post will be picture heavy! Enjoy! :)

Inside our hotel lobby - Christmas trees + palm trees. 

How it looks like an hour BEFORE the park opens... even more people showed up after this was taken.. 

Sparkly Minnie Ears!

 Yummy Mickey cookies!

 First meal at California Adventures. Chinese chicken salad in a Boudin sourdough bread bowl.

 Paradise Pier

 Paradise Pier + Ferris Wheel

 Mr. Potato Head! Waiting in line for our first ride..

 California Adventures' Christmas Tree

 Santa Mater!

Most popular ride in Cars Land! Over two hour wait but we did the fast pass so it was shorter.

 Disneyland!

 Disneyland's Christmas Tree

 Sleeping Beauty's Castle all decked out with snow caps.

 Don't know what the people in front or back are doing.. but this is our all-time favorite ride ever! :)

 One of the many ice cream floats I've had on this trip.. soo good!

What your hair will look like after going on the California Screamin' roller coaster FIVE times!! ;)

It's a Small World ride!

Took tons of pictures inside the Small World ride... here's one of them! It was so festive!

 You didn't know this but Dumbo is my favorite Disney character!! I have several Dumbo stuffed animals! My parents told me that they took me at 2 years old and I cried to stay on the Dumbo ride forever. hahaha..

Disneyland's Christmas tree all lit up!

 Sleeping Beauty's Castle all lit up too! So magical!
