Happy One Year Anniversary to Markel & Me! <3

I CANNOT believe it’s been an entire year since we got married in Cypress, CA.  The day was BEYOND stressful, we had a few too many drinks, and we danced our asses off. xo  That day I married my best friend and I’m so incredibly lucky!!  Here are a few (ok more than a few)…

Piperlime Jewelry Wishlist/Lusts

I am…to put it mildly…OBSESSED with Piperlime.  I am such a huge online shopping addict.  It’s sad really…I NEVER go to the malls anymore which would probably be a more useful and productive way to spend my time (burn calories and only buy what looks good). ANYWAYY…here are a few pieces that I’m seriously lusting…

Forever 21 Haul

I just bought these items below and have been loving them!  I’ve worn them for the last few days and really love the quality of the items.  Sometimes the fabric/stitching quality is pretty lacking at F21, so you have to be careful of the things you pick!  Here are some great pieces I picked up for fall…

Our New Bar Cart!!

Markel brought home the most wonderful surprise yesterday!  He bought a bar cart from Target and brought it home. =)  I guess he found it online + used a coupon and then picked it up in the store. We have been searching for a cart for about 3 months now and we finally have it!! …

Major Blast at UCLA

Once a year, my coworkers and I go to the dorms and participate in something called “major blast” at UCLA.  It’s for freshman and transfer students~ to help expose them to our majors/minors and also counsel them in person and answer any questions. My majors are always SUUUPER popular (not) and I’m busy all night…

Hawaii (Part VI)

Our flight back home…sad to be leaving =( Mama Chang made us masubi’s and gimbap!  SOOOOOOOO yummy on our flight home! How adorable are these bathroom signs?? Once we got back to LA, we literally vegged out on the couch for hours.  EXHAUSTED, happy to be home, and missing Hawaii all at the same time.

Hawaii (Part IV: Road to Hana)

On one of the days in Maui, Markel and I drove the Road to Hana. Let me just say…it’s pretty fucking overrated.  I don’t regret going (b/c it was pretty), But i don’t think it’s something i will ever do again.  Laying out by the pool and drinking mai tais vs. driving for 6 hours? …

Hawaii (Part III: Maui)

This was my first trip to Maui and I have to say…I can’t wait to go back.  Maybe it was because Mike and I had alone time (honeymoon butterflies) or it was the island itself…or the good food…or the awesome hotel experience we had… But I seriously can’t wait to go back with friends, for…

Summer 2013 Bucket List Recap

This summer seriously FLEW BY.  It feels like only yesterday when I wrote a bucket list for myself (and Markel).  It wasn’t until 3/4ths of the summer was finished when I realized I was no where near to completing the list.  Here’s what I was able to finish below.  Since the weather in LA is…

Elorie Bella Ballet Flats

Gilt Group was having a sale this week and I snatched up 2 pairs of Bella Ballet Flats.  I wanted like 5 different colors, but Markel would kill me…so I secretly bought 2 instead. =P  I picked these because they looked really comfortable and they had a nice amount of cushion at the bottom of…

 Last weekend, my small group and I went to Santa Barbara for the weekend (Los Olivos to be exact) and it was one of the most fun weekends away that I’ve had this year! We rented a house in the middle of town (because it was close to the vineyards) and it turned out to…

Knuckle Rings Have Arrived!!

I ordered knuckle rings from Etsy recently (post here) and they finally arrived in the mail!  They were so teeny tiny that I was sure they wouldn’t even fit. I like them a lot.  I haven’t worn them or tested them out~ but just trying them on was adorable.  The service was fast, efficient, and…
