Spring Styles pt. 1

I’ve been keeping my eye out for trends that are big this season, and the style that I keep seeing is Off the Shoulder Tops. I’m loving this trend, not gonna lie, I’ve bought a few too many ots tops already. My current fave top is from the brand Iris. It is a gorgeous light mustard yellow, and is rouched and stretchy at the top and free flowing at the bottom. It has a adorable trim around the fabric of the upper section that hangs off the shoulders and is all around so Stylish. I went out for a day trip to my city and snapped a few pics! I paired my top with a pair of Boyfriend jeans from American Eagle, and a cute pair of gladiator styled nude sandals with gold detailing from Charming Charlie’s. I Accessorized my outfit with my cute Blush toned Chloe-Inspired bag from Perfect Image New York, and Vintage 70’s Orange aviators from Dr. Peepers.

New Hair, New Family, New, New, New!!!

So recently, I decided to hop out of my seasonal creativity rut, do something drastic. I decided to go lighter for spring, but way lighter. I am now a full platinum blonde, and a force to be reckoned with. And also recently upon discovery that I have sister, I decided to contact her. We have been talking and she’s pretty much the best person in the world, though I may be biased. She’s coming down in approximately a week to visit for spring break and we have been planning everything that we’re going to do together. We might’ve thrown in a little San Francisco trip in Santa Cruz trip while she’s down here, and I can’t wait to blog about them. She is a coffee lover like me, with an eclectic music taste and an enthusiast of photography and fashion. I wish I could explain, what it feels like to grow up a little with child and how your life seems to come together and that missing puzzle piece is filled, would you find out that you have a long lost sister. I can’t, I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to describe the feelings I have felt, & the pure joy in my heart this last month. Also not to mention, I have an excuse to go down to Santa Barbara anytime now.

#OOTD: Model Off Duty

Lazy Sundays don’t necessarily have to mean not put together. More often then not when I am going out but don’t want to completely dress up, I opt for the effortlessly stylish, Model Off Duty look. I pulled some major Style Inspo from a few different pictures online, but narrowed it down to two of models, Alyssa Miller, and Kendall Jenner. I threw together this Comfy & Chic outfit, for a day about the city. I went for a monochromatic look of all black and a pair of white nikes for some contrast.

Result:

Shirt: “Love Me Harder” Ariana Grande 2015 Tour Shirt

Cardigan: Black American Eagle Cardigan

Jeans: Ripped Black Old Navy Cropped Ankle Jeans

Shoes: White Nike Roshes


Hope you enjoyed the read.

Get To Know Me ❤ 10 Facts

I will be writing a lot on this blog so I figured you guys should get to know me a little bit. Let’s jump right into it.

1. I’m vegetarian
It’s a choice I made simply because I don’t really eat meat that much and when I do I don’t really enjoy it so I just figured I would cut it out of my diet completely, however I do eat cheese, dairy and things like that. Coincidentally not milk Ive just always preferred almond milk.

2. I’m a jack of all trades?

When I was younger I took pretty much every dance under the sun, and have saying my whole life. At one point I even did musical theater, that combines the two. I’ve always had a passion for cooking and love coming up with the recipes from simple to gourmet. I did cheer for four years and gymnastics for two. I’m currently doing yoga and looking into starting boxing for strength training. I have yet to, but I’m really interested in trying acting, because I love how people can become a whole other person for the entertainment of the world.

3. I am German

I am not from Germany, but my Great great grandparents came here from Germany. I’m in the process of learning German and working to keep the culture and the traditions alive in my family. I’ve worked with my family to re-create classic German recipes and have researched many different German holidays. I can’t wait to travel there someday.

4. I lived in England

When I was younger my mom and I moved with her husband to his home in England and we lived there for 6 months to a year. Though I was about four, it was such a big journey that most of it stayed in my memory. I still remember the town we lived in and every detail of the house. I went to kindergarten there and was actually ambidextrous, but unfortunately when we got back to the states, The kindergarten I went to in California made me pick a hand.

5. I’m a lefty

Like I was saying when we got back to California my school required that I choose only one hand to write with and I guess for me that was my left hand. It’s really not different from right-handed people except the frustration of living in a right-hand world. Mugs are struggle because the handles are always on the right side, and also whenever I write in standard format from left to right my hand smudges the ink and pencil lead. Ugh, The struggle.

6. I live in California

I honestly couldn’t of picked a better state. Though there’s many other states that I want to visit and possibly move to, California will always be home. Can’t complain about the sunshine and the palm trees. Also the constant 77° year-round. Not to mention it’s the birthplace of some of the greatest rap artists known.

7. I’m addicted to Old school rap

I’ll admit it’s a problem. I’ve got iTunes albums, CDs, and a record or two from NWA, ice cube, Snoop Dogg, Tupac and a few others with the exception of some New Age rappers like Kendrick Lamar, YG, and E-40, because they’ve got that same Old school style.

8. I am obsessed with writing

I realize I should probably start a blog when my love for fashion and my love for writing both became apparent. Blogging is great because you can combine the two and take off running. I didn’t start a blog for a long time because I thought that the writing portion would be hard for me but it’s just talking, and speaking my mind. I mean I’ve always had an A+ in English.

9. I love Minimalism

Minimalism is great because it is so simple. White, black, gray, all colors I think of when I think of minimalism. To me minimalism represents a clean, fresh space, and for me that helps inspire me and come up with new ideas.

10. I want to work with athletes

I want to major in kinesiology with a minor in sports medicine. If you don’t know what that’s about, to break it down, when you were on the sidelines of any sporting event and you see a player get hurt the doctor that tends to themand sees them off the field for pain management, prescriptions, physical therapy, and advice, that is what a doctor in sports medicine does.

Birthday, Graduation, Adulting…

I have excepted the craziness that is the next 3 months. I’m scared, nervous, excited, sad, happy. All of the emotions you feel when your 18th Birthday and Highschool Graduation are 2 weeks apart. 2 of my closest, and longest friends Ev & Elizabeth are turning 18, one this week , and the other one is turning 18 next week. Ivonne recently signed a lease for her new apartment in socal because she is going to Santa Barbara for college so that will be different, for me. Exciting, and new for her. Bittersweet for me, as I am not used to not seeing her any less than twice a week. Elizabeth And I have recently been looking at houses as we are considering getting a place together, yay, and simultaneously planning a trip to Mexico for Graduation! In order for me to do that though, I’m going to have to work more than 15 hours a week. Ugh, the life of a princess. Or more like thinking and wishing I was a princess. I’ve been trying to free hand film, to get better at it for weddings and parties and what not, because I am used to setting my camera up on a tripod and filming with a background, but everyone has to start somewhere right? Wedding parties pay a lot for videographers. I’ve seemingly realized that finishing high school, posting bi weekly on YouTube, blogging daily, Instagramming, keeping up with my job, and working out is really, REALLY HARD!!! Not to mention self up keep like tanning, getting my nails done, and enjoying life to the fullest. I’m adulting and I’m not even legal yet. Bless my mom, whom I love dearly, isn’t making me chip in for rent, like she so often reminds me her parents did when she was 18. Love you mama. Needless to say I’m a bit stressed out with my birthday and graduation. I think I’m going to need a facial and massage ASAP!  

Brb, booking one now!

Let me know how you guys stay relaxed in the comment section!

Spring in Bloom

Ive been feeling very inspired lately. It might be that spring is emerging. The winter blues have finally left and it is getting warm in California. The combo of the sun, and the new season, and the blooming flowers is enough to inspire me through June, not to mention my 18th Birthday and my  Graduation is in may. I have been on the lookout for farmers markets, blooming flower fields, and other places to shoot, but since those haven’t popped up yet, I have happily settled with Fresh bouquets from the market! My two favorite spots to purchase these fresh blooms are Whole Foods, and the Sacramento Food Co-Op. Whole Foods is a more accessible store, country wide, so if you head over, be sure to keep an eye out for Sales in the floral department. Just this last weekend Whole Foods had a sale on Tulips in every color of the rainbow, 5-6 flowers in a bunch for $5.00. Wonderful deal. Not only do I enjoy using flowers for photos on my Instagram and on the blog, it’s just a nice little luxury to reward yourself with. Purchase them on Mondays for a little extra weekly cheer!
