Current Obsessions: Summer/ Early Fall 2013

So long summer, fall has arrived. I'm absolutely sick of reading post about fall and all things pumpkin. I'm ready to skip all this #ilovefall nonsense. Besides I thrive on 70 degree days and lots of sunshine; I daydream about living somewhere tropical. One day, that's all I keep on saying to myself...

I had to deal with intense heat and summer, and had to find new ways to try to keep cool. Self-Indulgent is one way to describe my habits. I'm also a creature of habit. I shop at same store over and over again, and even still go to the same Starbucks or local tea shop. I gathered some the things that I'm still in love with this Fall.



+ Accessories.
Most recent purchase from Target. I couldn't control my wallet when I saw this 3.1 Philip Lim x Target bag. also love the industrial inspired earring.
Mini bag from #philliplimfortarget and small earrings from @targetstyle.

Neon Prints/ Sparkles/ Studs ♥
Perfect notebook for writing and other creative posts. #pinkglitter #ilikeshinythings

Bubble Tea vs Coffee Frappachino, I'm divided between which is my favorite summer time drink.
It's hot, so I bought a little treat from tea smith.

Just a little treat. #starbucks #coffelover4eva

Excuse Me

HELLO! I'm not going to make some big excuse because I've been feeling like shit for weeks. I couldn't see the need to post. It's not easy for a girl to admit her weakness. I'm a coming back stronger. I've made up so many excuses to avoid accepting my responsibilities. No lies, I didn't feel like posting and sharing my thoughts of photos. I could have careless about reading outfit posts. I've realized that I'm indifferent about the blog world

Im so happy with my hair, went blonde and smells wonderful. Got it done by MJ at curb appeal in downtown.

Recently, I felt like something was missing and that I miss writing. I'm still not out of my slump but little bits of joy are coming back. I'm starting to feel more complete.

Summer started out with a new adventure, I went to Upstate New York and Brooklyn, to visit some friends. I'm still awestruck. I made a promise to myself that I will save up to go again next year.

Also I stopped by Niagara Falls, Canada. I honestly did not have high expectations for Canada but it blew me away. Once I got away from the high priced tourist locations. I could not take my eyes away from the falls. I feel more relax when I'm around nature. I possibly could of spent days exploring the area. In fact, I didn't want to go back home when the long road finished.

When I got home, I started to focus on myself by taking steps into adulthood.  Finally I found a job at the end of summer. By the way, I'm working in a school. It feels wonderful to be free from university but hopefully, I can return back to school early next year. I'm thrilled to be back!!!

Enjoy all the photos from my trips.

Twisted

Ever feel like something is pull you around and won't let you go on with life. Sometimes I think about my problems but than I realize they seem meaningless when we widen our view.  I examine future prospects and  try to become more understanding and practice patience.

I'm not one to be shy about the type of food I enjoy and it helps to have wonderful company. On Saturday, I had to check out this spot called Twisted Fork. My group ordered lots of appetizers and fruity cocktails. The best things, was the mushroom dip and chicken fried bacon. Yeah, it's deep fried bacon served with a side of gravy. It's even better than I expected. Enjoy all the food porn! *drools*

Explain It To Me

Good day, it's been a rather rough week. So much terror, I knew that so many people felt scared. My heart really does go out to Boston.  Also the explosion in Texas, made shocked waves.  Thankfully, we all can breathe better this weekend. Monday, is a brand new start for everyone. I'm so in awe of those that stand strong and continue to live life.

It was such a carefree and fun weekend. I'm still waiting for spring. It's been lots of rainfall and chilly nights. I've tried to put on a smile but I want to wear bright dress and sandals.

1. Finding this medium size bag at Marshalls, it was a steal and reminded me of a certain designer bag that fancy bloggers like to carry.

2. Glitter tip manicure. pssh, that's not an engagement ring. I'm quite confuse as to why everyone thinks it's one, just because I like to wear it on my left hand.

3. Drinking a classic Shirley Temple, I'm never too old to order one.

4. Do I even need to explain? I've jumped onto the whole frozen yogurt trend.

5. Discovering a new bands. I saw Nice & Pretty and Jukebox The Ghost last Friday. You all need to check them out. They sang a cover a song of "That Thing You Do."

Lookin Pretty

Call me vain but I put lots of effort getting ready every morning. A typical beauty routine is simple but requires more than splashing water. Although I envy the type of girl that looks stunning without an once of makeup.

I'm slightly obsessed with skincare. I have major issues with acne, it's hard to describe. I have a mixture of oily and dry skin. Recently I started to notice a clearer face.

Last weekend, I freaked out when I ran out of moisturizer. Marshall's is conveniently close to my house. I love the selection  and the price is way cheaper. I check out all the products, I buy just make sure they are unopened and in the original packaging.  Besides skincare, I'm also looking out for a better eyeliner. I found a liquid one that I love, but have yet to find an excellent eyeliner. Maybe I'll be lucky with this one from L'Oreal. Also I needed a small pocket mirror. This one below is quite intense but perfect for those midday touch ups. Lastly, I found a bottle of OPI Nail Envy. Bought it so I can test it, because my nails are weak and break easily.

ps. Bought all the products with my own money.

Louder Than Ever

Sometimes I forget I have a blog.  I know many bloggers always have an excuse for lack of updates.  I come back home after a long day, all I want to do is drink some wine and not worrying about catching up on this blog. It felt so wonderful to step away from my laptop. So what can one girl do while avoiding the inevitable. Is it wrong to admit that I spend way too much time on tumblr? Should I stop accepting invites to eat sushi or grab a drink with my friends? Not happening! I know I need to find a way to balance social media and my priorities.

Anyways... Here's a few snapshots during the last month.
1. Checking out some new art galleries. Most have free wine and I get to pretend I know what I'm talking about. But I love this piece I found at a Starbucks.
Recent adventures

2. Sushi Dinner Dates, if only I could get a second date...

Sushi

3. Late Nights... Give me a bottle of Framboise or hard cider. Sitting in a cozy place with little tea lights. Running in high heels to catch up with my friends. Finding a late nigh bite to relax after a few drinks.
Recent adventures

Lastly, I'm starting figure out what I love to write about. I'm considering doing a series of about me articles or even writing a few opinion pieces.
