It’s back to school shopping time! Isn’t it weird when we are in school, we can’t wait to get out and once we’re out, we miss school?! I graduated from university in 2014 and I have missed it so much! I ask myself why I rushed to finish and regret not enjoying the moment. If any of you are still in school, especially K-12 and/or college, take my advice and appreciate where you are in life. My shopping was always done in stores but with online shopping, does anyone go into stores anymore? I put together some of the pieces that I would purchase if I were still in school. I chose student budget friendly pieces that are easy to style as multiple outfits.
Do you guys have any school memories that make you smile? Let me know in the comments!
Hello my loves! If you follow me on Insta, then you probably remember seeing my mini staycation. My significant other Kamal and I ventured out to our favorite brunch spot Alice’s Restaurant in Woodside, California before heading into San Francisco. We had found Alice’s restaurant a few months ago while heading to the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay. The restaurant is located in the middle of the woods and the delicious food is a plus. The Bay Area is well over populated hence, we find any reason to get away from the hustle of it all.
We stayed at the Loews Regency in SF and watched movies while ordering delectable food from room service. I’m huge on hotels with views and on the top of my priority list while choosing hotels is a room with a gorgeous view. I asked for a room with a view of the Bay Bridge at the Loews. The room had a minuscule view of the Bay Bridge, even from the 38th floor! When the guest attendant told me our room was on the 38th floor, I got excited only to later realize that the 38th floor was the lowest floor at the hotel; bummer! The rest of the building was occupied by other businesses of course. We hoped to spend the night, but Kamal got called into work later in the evening; just when I had jumped into my pajamas. Nonetheless, as long as the staycation lasted, it was enjoyable!
Hey loves! Hope your weekend was splendid. I was completely exhausted from a bride + 10 other clients yesterday and had another one today. Now I get to draft some blog posts and prepare Instagram posts for this week, but that’s the fun part! Blogging makes me so happy; it’s a different type of creativity. My mom and I took a trip to Santana Row in San Jose last week and I wore this oversized dress. It was one of those pieces that have been in my closet for a while and I never got a chance to wear it. The warm day called for something comfortable. I opt for oversized or loose fitting dresses since I don’t have an ideal body yet (at least in my perception) to wear skin tight dresses. Here is the other shift dress that I love. Oversized dresses are perfect for the warm weather. I can feel the breeze while taking a stroll and they look effortless for a lunch date!
I told myself that I wouldn’t do any more editorial photo shoots, but a few weeks ago I did an Indian bridal! Styling, hair and makeup, and execution are more of my taste. Whenever I’m the model as well, it becomes difficult to style the shoot and see what I look like. I’m sure you all can agree, that sometimes we think we look a specific way while taking photos and then we see the photos and we ask ourselves what was I thinking!? Long story short, my friend who has a decor company, R and R, reached out to me and I couldn’t say no. Here are some of the shots:
Hope everyone is having a great start to the week! I have been going to the gym quite often lately and that means I need a new outfit each time I go. On Sunday mornings, there is Yoga and 1-2 times throughout the week I will do weights and other exercises. Much of the workout clothing is starting to get repetitive. Who agrees with me? Well, if you haven’t heard of Mira Rae then let me introduce you. Mira Rae is a when fashion meets boring workout attire. It’s perfect athleisure that doesn’t just need to be worn during a workout, but it’s perfect for movie night or perhaps while running errands. The ladies over at Mira Rae, were kind enough to send me some of their pieces to try out.
