Morning Treat

Happy Friday, lovely Plummies! If you haven't caught on, I LOVE breakfast. I mean, who doesn't?! Well...actually, I do know a handful of people who don't eat breakfast, which is interesting to me, because, quite frankly, I can't function without it. 
I wake in the morning and go directly to the kitchen, pop a couple gummy multi-vitamins in my mouth, start up my latte machine, and prepare myself a quick meal. Usually I will eat something similar to my above creation. Have you guys ever tried toast with cream cheese and jam? If not, I highly recommend it! Seriously, peanut butter and jelly is amazing and all, but the cream cheese just adds that special oomph!
Go ahead, give it a whirl, You will be glad you did. :)
Also, this Sunday is my 26th Bday! Happy Bday to ME! :) 
Have a good weekend, Plummies!

Hey Plummies! Happy Thursday to you. Here are a few shots that I snapped over the course of this past weekend and last. As you can tell, I have been enjoying plenty of ice-cream, and flowers, lots, and lots, of flowers! It must be the Spring in the air :) How is your week going? Fabulous I hope.

Thank you all for your continued support. Please email or comment me because I would like to learn about who you all are as well. <3

Affordable Spring Gear

Affordable Spring Gear


Happy Wednesday, Plummies! Spring is definitely in full swing here in San Diego. It is warm out, the flowers are blooming, and people are wearing bright and fun colors (I've been seeing so much neon on campus). 
Recently, I went to my local tailor and got some thrifted items altered; one piece being an amazing cobalt blue pencil skirt that I practically stole for about $4! I am so excited to wear it with a fun miss-matched top. Anyhow, I have put together a collage of some pieces that I am drawing Spring inspiration from. Above are the numbered links to where you can find all of the items for a great price. Many of which are just below or above $100! <---I dig it!

Style Crush: Jenny Ong


Hello Lovely Plummies! Last week I kicked off my "Style Crush" series, and plenty of ya'll seemed to like it. So I've decided to make it a weekly thing (for now). This week, my Style Crush is the beautiful, Jenny Ong from Neon Blush. She is also a Southern California blogger who is apparently fabulous at it! I so adore her laid-back, easy-going style. I also love that she is a thrift-store junkie, and graduate student much like myself. Her style is just amazing! Go ahead and check her out at Neon Blush

Have a wonderful Monday friends!

More Workspace Ideas

Here is more home office inspiration. My workspace is still in progress, and has been since December (check it out here). I will probably get it finished when I am done with school this May. This weekend, my office will turn into a guest bedroom because my good friends are staying with us for the weekend! I am so looking forward to seeing them. :) 

Enjoy your weekend, Plummies. I know I will! :)

Spring Time Must Haves

Spring Time Must Haves

Hi Plummies! Above are some hot spring trends that are just screaming my name! This mint Peter Pan shift dress is simply adorable. I can see myself wearing it to graduation, wine-tasting, church, or out to brunch with my ladies. And what's hotter than an ankle-strap pump? This nude one will go with just about anything. What Spring trends are on your mind?

Have a fabulous Thursday, Ya'll!

Head Wraps

Hola Plummies! If you cannot already tell from my Title Banner, I LOVE head wraps and turbans. They are not only stylish, but very practical for those bad hair days (most days for me), and when you just want your mane outta ya face. See how I have worn one here.

Spring has arrived, and Summer will be here before you know it, and it will be the perfect time to rock this look. I have included a tutorial directly above, if you would like to figure out how to do it. 
Would you ever rock the head wrap?

Flaws & All

Happy 1st day of Spring, Plummies! Have you ever had chicken pox? I had them when I was about five, and it was so annoying. Even more annoying were the marks I was left with afterwards. (You can kinda see them in the picture above.) When I was younger, I used to be really self-conscious about them. Now, I've grown to embrace them. Things like these are a part of who I am, and what I have endured over the course of my life. Same with my freckles...I used to hate them, now I think they are kinda cute (in a Cabbage Patch Kid sorta way). 

Moral of the story: You only have one body, learn to love it, FLAWS and all. 

You are beautiful! Don't ever believe otherwise. XoXo

Style Crush: Jessica Alba


Happy Monday, Plummies! I hope your Saint Patrick's day weekend was fun. I spent my weekend in L.A. celebrating my older brother's and good friend's birthday. My mom even came into town to celebrate with us. <3

Above are some pics of the lovely, Jessica Alba. I totally admire her style. It's polished, yet laid-back; girly, yet uber casual. She is the quintesential Califronia girl, who knows how to make a casual outfit, fabulous!   
Who is your style crush?

Happy Friday, Plummies! Above is a picture of my sister and I on our 2nd birthday. Man, how time flies! On April 1st I will turning the big ol' 2-6! Yup, over the hump of mid twenties and headed right for 30. And you know what?...bring it on! Life keeps getting better and better, I just hope to never lose my child-like zest for life. After all, isn't life all about making friends, playing, and having fun? If it ain't, maybe it ought to be!

Take time to play today.

The Bigger the Better

sunnies, belt: thrifted/ bag: Shoe Mart (Philippines)/ sweater: Old Navy/ jeans: F21/ watch: Invicta/ shoes: Steve Madden
My philosophy on plenty of things is: subtle and simple is best. However, there are always exceptions...In the sunglass department, that concept gets thrown out the window, in the dumpster, and to the landfill. Living in sunny San Diego calls for nice, large shades. I mean, we gots-ta protect ourselves from those harmful rays, right? Plus, I think these over-stated specs are just fun!

Are you a sunglass freak, too? If so, send me a pic of your favorite pair!
