Chasing Sunflower Fields in Daisy Drop-Waist Dress

Happy Monday everyone and for those who celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival, hope you all have been eating lots of mooncake yesterday. Only four more days to go before I am completely done with my Whole30 program before I could think of adding sweet treats to my diet. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, feel free to check out my Whole30 snack video on my channel currently. Without them, I wouldn’t have been able to survive through 30 days on the program.

Anyway as for my outfit below, my friend, Sung and I drove an hour and twenty minutes north to chase down these sunflower fields. This was our second attempt to catch them at their peak–the first attempt was in early August when we missed the peak of McKee-Besher sunflower fields by a week. Luckily, we were able to make it to the Clear Meadow Farm just in time before the sunflowers wilt away days after.

Travel Diary | Exploring Florence

And now here we are in Florence. The first night we arrived after spending the day in Rome, we walked straight to the Cattedral di Santa Maria del Fiore Duomo and had barely enough time to walk up the entire length of the dome to catch the magnificent sunset over the city. The first time I laid eyes on the duomo six years ago, it was such a sight to see and still just majestic standing there as it was before.

We ended the night in search of a great pizzeria and found this place called Pizzeria lo Spuntino. Funny thing was we didn’t end up getting pizzas, but instead I opted for the vegetarian lasagna and oh emm gee, that had to be the best lasagna I’ve had in so long. I highly recommend the place because even now, I want to go back just to order the lasagna again!

My Day to Night Bun with Remington Perfect Bun Tool

Hello everyone! Today, I wanted to showcase how I would use Remington’s Perfect Bun tool to style my hair from a day to night bun look. I’ve done a sock bun look in the past, but having medium-length hair doesn’t give me much length to turn it into a nice sleek bun and that’s where a hair tool like the perfect bun can come in handy. See more after the jump!

Summer to Autumn | Crop Top + Overall Dress

Hello everyone! Today’s weather definitely feels like fall with temps in the 60’s. I can’t say that I am happy about winter coming up but let’s pray that it will be a short one this year.

So I have a confession to make. I have never never own a pair of overalls in my entire life. Aside from living in rompers the whole entire summer, I’ve just never had the desire to own overalls until this dress below came into my life only a mere month ago. Surprisingly, the structure of the dress was pretty well made and love the wash. There is one tiny thing that I would adjust in this overall dress is pinning the strips in place to my shoulders. Any movement I make will have me adjusting these straps constantly and that could prove a pain throughout the day. Other than that, I am in love with this dress and couldn’t wait to wear it through fall transition as much as I could.
