Style Diary: New Year’s Eve 2016

Every year I’m always faced with the issue of not knowing what to wear for New Year’s Eve.

2017: The Year of Crushing

I started 2016 off by going with Jun’s mom to a psychic. I always keep an open mind and try not to write anything off until I’ve done it. Considering that this was an old friend of hers, it didn’t hurt to try.  The outcome? This was probably one of the top 3 craziest moments…

The Look for Less: Camel Coats + UNiDAYS Discount

Since springtime, I’ve been on a neverending hunt for the perfect camel-colored coat. Aside from nude and blush, camel has been one of the hottest colors on-trend, especially for the winter season. Unfortunately like most people, I can’t justify paying over $100 for a coat. We hardly ever wear coats in Southern California because our…

Everybody knows that the holidays often mean your weekend evenings are booked with parties for your friends and family. This year my friends and I tried to be better about having dinner parties whenever we’re all back home. After high school everybody went their separate ways and moved away, so with our work and school…
