Travel Diary: La La Land

I just LOVE me some California! You can go anytime of year and have an amazing time. I am in love with the San Francisco Bay Area, but I have a thing for sun and palm trees. LA LA Land is the spot for just that! I have visited L.A. a few times, and each time I have a different experience. I like to sightsee when I travel. Each place I visit has something cool and different to offer.

Chillin Lake Side

I love when I find the perfect thinking spot. I like to take a moment from everyday life and relax somewhere peaceful with beautiful scenery. I make sure I pack a few good reads, a favorite drink and just enjoy the R&R.

Summer Reads: June

So, I have decided to spend my summer getting my read on! As you all know, I LOVE books! I recently started a part-time gig at my local library. Let’s just say I’m in book heaven! Of course I am the only dweeb to have like 22 books checked out at once (hehe, or maybe not :-P). Then I came up with the idea of doing a monthly summer reading list. Each month during the summer I will share with you guess what books I am reading for the month. The list will include Fiction and NonFiction books from different genres. I’m so excited! Here is my Summer Reading List for June!

TheStylishDork’s 1st Street Style Feature!

Hey everyone! I am so excited to share with you guys my first street style feature! I was coming from brunch (on my way to the new ZARA store in downtown Seattle) and a nice woman stopped me and asked if I was interested in being featured. The blog is for an energy drink company who wanted to showcase women in what they call “Passion meets Fashion.” She asked me questions about myself, my blog and my style inspiration. Check out my feature and other photos from the day below!

with LOVE, <3

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and it’s not too late to pick out that perfect outfit for the Day of LOVE:-) You can be spending the day with your honey, family, your girlfriends or whoever. Go ahead and get dolled up, take lots of pics and enjoy yourself! And if you’re single, don’t worry if your are spending Valentine’s Day alone. Just because you are single DOES NOT mean you can’t celebrate too! Refer to my post “Enjoy Your Own Company“and you will see being single in a totally different light.

I have come up with some cute outfit ideas for Valentine’s Day for you all! Exciting! Red is the color for this season (we have been seeing it a lot on and off the red carpet), so why not be a little festive for the Love Day 🙂 Red is sexy, fiery and sultry. Just about everyone can pull off wearing red!I love a nice red lip (Russian Red  by MAC is my go to shade lately) and pretty red nail polish. Have a look at the outfits I came up with.

Simple & Chic Organizing

I took a trip to Target and Michael’s to pick up a few things to help me organize my girly necessities. I get tired of digging for my makeup brushes in my cosmetic bag, or leaving my Q-tips in that huge unattractive box.  Have a look at how I created some simply chic organization for myself. 🙂

Outings and Outfits: Seattle Edition

Of course lately I have A LOT of time on my hands. Either with job searching, networking and enjoying my new surroundings. I LOVE going to Seattle and exploring and just being in the city. I don’t have the luxury of being only 15mins from a major city like I did back in MD (Downtown DC was only 15mins away), but I don’t mind the drive to Seattle. I always make it an all day outing when I go to the city. Since I am new there are tons to do and see. I still have A LOT of things and places to go to and check off my list.

October Bath & Beauty Favs

For the October bath and beauty favorites, I decided to do something a little bit differently. Instead of giving your guys MY personal favorites for the month, I got some help from my followers! I had a few contributions and I picked two ladies: Tania and Linda. They shared some fabulous favorites and I can’t wait to try them myself.

Of course I had to show my appreciation to these ladies from taking the time out to contribute to this post. Sooo, to help with their next purchase of beauty products, they received a $10 gift card to SEPHORA!

Lovin’ Loafers!

photo 1

I absolutely love wearing flats and lately loafers have been my favorite! I like wearing heels too but I’m a chill laid back kind of gal. So I’m more than likely in a cute pair of flats.  I’m on the hunt for some new loafers to add to my shoe collection (especially a leopard pair since my old ones are well…..OLD)
