Zen Vibes

IMG_0044

When Eryn and I moved in together, I had to reorganize my life (moving is good for that, at least). I love having a desk in my room, because it’s like my little zen sanctuary where I can be creative and get work done without any distractions. I’ve always loved keeping things simple, decorative, and girly! But much to my surprise, a lot of my girlfriends live in perpetual clutter, chucking clothes, old documents, jewelry, fake eyelashes – you name it! – on their desks. We’re all guilty of getting a lil messy because, let’s face it, none of us have enough time. But I’ve recently realized how happy it makes me to come home to my cute, organized desk that showcases my fave jewelry and perfumes!

That’s my zen tip. It’s so nice to know that you have a clean surface in your room, a place where you can escape from wine nights and rowdy apartment visitors to just sit and do your makeup / paint your nails / write a thank you card / blog / work / skype / etc etc etc! I promise, your life will feel so much more organized, and you’ll feel happy when your desk is cute, clean, and a showcase of all your beautiful girly trinkets!

Just random thoughts of the day, but it’s the little stuff that matters and really makes ya happy! Hope everyone had a great Monday!

It’s all about the little things, people! (Speaking of books, my college girlfriends and I are starting a book club! First thing on the list : Brain on Fire! Comment below if you’re interested in joining && maybe I’ll start a separate Book Club blog segment!)

Dress It Up or Down

Most of the time, I am the person at the holiday parties that is way overdressed. I can’t help that I love clothes and dressing up! Life of an aspiring fashionista… For this year’s holiday party, I decided to mix it up a bit – dress it up on top, but dress it down on the bottom, or what my Grandma likes to call it “a fancy top with raggedy jeans!” haha. I obviously had to “shoulder” my jacket (tip: if all else fails, shoulder it), rock the shades, strap on the studded heels, and flash off my favorite Tannery LA bag to add a little bit more steeze to the outfit :)

Weekend Wardrobe: Nordstrom, Forever 21, Neo 39

I know, I know, I am a little late with the weekend wardrobe update! Better late than never, right? On Sunday, my girlfriends and I had a celebratory brunch for a friend who is leaving for Med School!! Due to the hot summer weather, I thought I would keep it cool and classy with a flowy floral dress. I didn’t want to accessorize too much because the dress already draws so much attention with its vibrant colors. Also, I decided to go with shorter heels to give the outfit a more casual/daytime look. How are you staying cool, yet fashionable during these hot summer days? Share with us!
