"BEST DRESSED AWARD" goes to Naomi Watts
"Worst Dressed"
Sorry Michelle Dockery, but side boobs aren't trendy

Morena Baccarin in Basil Soda gown
Shaun Robinson in Rani Zakhem gown
Jane Lynch in David Mesier gown
Julianna Margulies

I have to say... I was pretty disappointed that there were a lot more worst dressed celebrities at the SAG Awards 2013 than I expected
Better luck at the Oscar's?

Been getting into making custom orders lately and as I was making these rings, I couldn't help but sing CeeLo Green's "Fuck You" song back from way back when.. Haha cheesy, I know. 
Well, as you might've guessed already: these rings are up for sale now!

E-mail me at 
Check out

P.S. Just received a package from my dear friend Katy (who is now in PARIS) with mini chocolate chip cookies, a bunt/scone cake, and nail polishes in it! The baked goods taste even BETTER than they look... Which is hard to beat! Oops..There goes my diet?

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”- Confucius

So simple, so meaningful, so TRUE
Confucius couldn't have said it better... In today's society, so many of us (including myself) are worried about what "best jobs" are available for us... What other people will think of that role... How much money the job makes... TRUE. All of these do matter to some extent, but none of those should be the basis of what you choose your career path to be. As the quote simply states, if you choose a job you love, you will never have to work a day in your life. If you love what you do, you would not mind waking up at the crack of dawn to do it. If you love what you do, you would be proud to tell others about it. If you love what you do... other people's thoughts shouldn't phase you. 
Yeah yeah, this post can quickly turn into a life lesson kind of a thing, but sometimes... it's nice to hear these words. To me, they are words of reassurance that... well, we are all unique and those unique qualities are what makes us so special :)

My point is: Take risks- go after what you love- 
Live the life you have always imagined!
"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them"- Walt Disney

Anyways, here are some new ring additions! 
(Excuse my unpolished nail)
E-mail: for order inquiries

What else I did today: ate at Cafe Cup for brunch! 
Highly recommend this place. *Order their cinnamon rolls*
I ordered the baja burrito- SO GOOD. SO BIG.

DIY Project

Hi world :) - Today was filled with a lot of errands and DIY projects! I spent the night in, making some cool rings and a few bracelets.... I think I've found my new hobby! It does take some time and patience to learn the craft, but it's super fun once you get the hang of it. I'm thinking of making more stone+wire jewelry, any advices? requests? comments? To those who actually read my bloooooggggg, I'd love to get some feedback :)

Anyways, it's already 2AM here... I'm going to try to catch some sleep (my sleeping schedule's been way off these days)! 
Meanwhile, scroll down and check out what I did:
Yay or nay to the black bedside table? 
Was close to purchasing this today to match the black frame on my bed!
New mannequins for the room... new project coming up!

Denim-on-Denim: 90s Fashion Revival

From the runways to the streets, there's been more and more 90's denim-on-denim looks. This trend is fairly easy to do, especially since almost everyone has a pair of jeans and/or a jean jacket in their closet. 
Don't be afraid to be monochromatic (that's what the trend is all about)
Add a pop of color to break up the proportions
Think 90's slouchy boyfriend denim
Add green accessories- double points- emerald is the color of the year!
Want extra credit? Try wearing an overall.... "Oh, the 90's"

Healthy mind, healthy body

Blogging, whether it is for an intended audience or for myself, has been a fun hobby in the making. Constantly reminding myself to capture "moments worth remembering" has been a little difficult at times (due to my forgetful nature), but I think I've been getting pretty good at it. With January still being the "beginning of the year," I bought myself some new products to try out. One new resolution I came up with recently is to have a healthy mind and a healthy body... meaning: workout more, take care of my body/ face, and light a candle and listen to more music (aka RELAX). 
*Nike Air from Dick's Sporting Goods*
*Purchased from Sephora*
Favorite so far: SUGAR tinted lip treatment- by Fresh
(Aloha Orchid is a little too strong for my sensitive nose, but the Goji Tarocco Orange candle is heavenly. I'd say it's the perfect blend of fruity scents! I've been eyeing the monogram mug and the Voluspa candle for awhile, so I finally decided to bite the bullet and buy them!)
*All 3 purchases are from Anthropologie*
