A lady’s best friend

Am back home now and it honestly feels good, it’s nice to be back to the norm. Yesterday Ian’s residency program had a dinner party, somewhat formal, so I had to get dressed up a bit. I went through my closet and all my cute dinner dresses are strapless or sleeveless…..but I acquired major sunburns on my arms, chest and back in kauai, so … Read More A lady’s best friend

Memorial day weekend

It’s been kind of wild this week, busy with life and I happen to have some sort of “bug”…been feeling sick all week but am pushing through. Like my rad denim jacket?, I scored it for very cheap at a local store. I was never fond of jackets because most denim jackets I owned were sort of heavy but this one isn’t, making it … Read More Memorial day weekend

Scholar

Every time I wear this blazer, I get reminded of boarding school and uniforms. I got this as a gift a few years back and I wore it a lot to classes, then kind of forgot about it until now, it has a somewhat formal, preppy feel…If I was a teacher, this would be a staple of mine haha. The dress is thrifted for … Read More Scholar

By the shore

I love sunny days like everyone else, but I wish we had a little more cloud cover honestly. It was only 70 something degrees but walking for more than 20 minutes in the sun makes me want to hide as far away from the heat as possible haha. I grew up in the hot african sun but living in Washington state has converted me … Read More By the shore

In pursuit of Cute..

It’s the start of a new year for me and am excited!, I turned the big 25 yesterday, and I can say I am happy and content with how I have turned out haha. When I was little I always went through my mom’s photo albums to see how she looked when she was in her early twenties, what she dressed like, etc…I wish … Read More In pursuit of Cute..

Le weekend

April is my birth month and we decided to celebrate early, no complains here :)..We had an amazing day in downtown Seattle, esp because “Comi-con” was going on at the convention center and the streets were packed with comic lovers dressed up as super heroes/comic characters. It was fun to people watch.

New beginnings

I think spring came early in the pnw, too bad the “east-coasters” are getting hit hard by blizzards. Flowers are blossoming everywhere here, the sunny days are getting longer… I hope it stays this way for a while but who knows, the pnw weather has been known to play tricks on us. Anyhow, I bought this dress for my graduation last year and never … Read More New beginnings
