Chicago Casual: Love & Jacquard Pattern

Hey everyone! I wore this outfit during Chicago weekend with degrees in the 20’s and wind chills below “too freezing cold”. As you know, I am a sucker for anything “Love” as seen here, here and plenty here. Maybe it’s because I grew up outside the city of Brotherly Love – who knows. So when […]

How to: An Asymmetrical Fishtail Braid Updo Tutorial

Hey everyone! So this tutorial has been on my to-do list for awhile if you could believe it. I just got around to filming it and, in the words of Barney Stinson from HIMYM, wait for it, not waiting four months to edit the tutorial. Applause, applause, thank you, thank you. Yes, I may have […]

Instamix: New Jewelry Display, Organization, Western Light & more

Hey everyone! I felt as if this past week and even the weekend was so productive for me. I checked off things that I wanted to get done for my photog business (have to thank my sister for that) and also did a huge organization overhaul at home. When my place is more-organized, my mind […]

However, after learning a little about the designer and seeing the collection, I am now a fan and definitely have a few favorites among them, especially the Peyton […]

Accented: Canary & Maple Leaf

Hey everyone! Excuse the bed hair – lol. My sister helped me shoot these photos below on Chinese New Year few Sundays ago and I could not wash my hair that day, which I typically do everyday. Let me explain why. I am not a very superstitious person, but for some reason, certain things that […]

Ombre Nail Tutorial: Gold, Burgundy & Pewter

Hey everyone!  So I had filmed this video several weeks back and just got around to editing it – apologies!  Anyways, I have seen several ombre nail tutorials that use the same sponge wedge method, which I tried out on the first take.  It didn’t work so hot for me, especially with my nail beds […]

Instamix: Vday, Chicago Winter & Foodie Adventure

Hey everyone! Boy, am I glad to be back in the DMV area. Although we may have brought back Chicago winter when we landed, because it was in the 20’s here – brr!! Anyways, I have alot to cover, so going to jump right into the updates. A day or two before Vday, I received […]
