Shamrock Day


Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!

I’m decked out in green today and loving my outfit so much!

Wasn’t the above picture a great photo op or what?! I had those fake roses on hand and decided to take a shot of me holding them, since I’m wearin’ pink roses today and all.


I made a new ring last night; I called this one Springtime in Kyoto, and it’s going in my Etsy shop today. I was getting creative ideas a few weeks ago from travel books, and I was in awe of how beautiful Kyoto, Japan is and was inspired to make a statement ring with blossoms. ❤


I think this is like, the only green clothing I own. I really don’t own a lot of green attire, but I’m lucky to own this top and skirt that pair exceptionally well together!!



I blend into the garage door!!!


T-strap shoes are so delightfully retro, aren’t they?! This is another pair of shoes from B.A.I.T. footwear that I adore so much. They’re so ladylike and feminine.


I hope you all have a happy St. Patrick’s Day and are wearing some green! ❤

‘Til next time! Have a happy weekend!


Jour de pluie


Hi there!! 🙂

Soooo…the complex I live in has painted our homes GREEN! Can I just take a moment to say how much I love it?! It certainly livens the place up and gives it a tropical vibe, in my opinion. It looks so cheery!!!

It’s a rainy week here in California – and a warm rain, at that! A long scarf adds some visual interest to the grey dress and is comfortable.


I’m so happy that Daylight Saving Time is here!!! Hooray for longer days. It’s a treat to get out of work, go home to eat dinner, then be off to my typical Starbucks chill out session and it’s still light outside.



Sunday, I tried something out: I turned my phone off for the day. It was so relaxing! I learned that things like texts can wait (unless it’s an emergency, of course) until I find a good time to dedicate to replying, and that way, I am giving it my full attention. I’ve been making it a personal goal to check my phone less; I’m typically not glued to my phone anyway, but I’m trying to appreciate my surroundings to the fullest even more so lately.

Now, my laptop on the other hand?? We are very, very attached. And I don’t want that to end! I may as well be married to my laptop, quite honestly. Blogging, uploading my new jewelry posts onto Etsy, making new digital illustrations, researching things…my laptop hosts so much! ❤

have made it a point to put my phone and my laptop away at least half-an-hour before I go to sleep, and dedicate that time to reading. I’ve noticed I’ve been falling asleep faster, so that’s good!


See ya!

Tale as Old as Time


Hi there!! 🙂

My outfit today totally makes me think of Beauty and the Beast, in terms of color and the red roses! So I’d consider this a Disney-inspired outfit, if you will. Hope you enjoy!


It doesn’t matter how old I get; there are days when I just want to feel like a Disney princess. Let’s just be real here. I think adulthood’s biggest test on us is to see if we can keep our eyes open, even just a little, to some of the magic we used to see in the world as children. I feel like as adults, it fades and we too easily sink into the ocean of indifference.


So something as little as a Disney-inspired outfit helps to keep the magic alive. ❤


I’ve  always loved Belle…as you can see from the picture below which is of me, at a very young age. 😀


Funny enough, my favorite dress Belle wore was actually the green one, when she was perusing in awe through the Beast’s enormous library. That, and the pink one she wears in the snow. ❤


I guess things haven’t changed much, have they? In terms of loving Disney princesses, that is! Eh, I guess I’m still a kid at heart. I don’t consider that a bad thing, though.

I hope you enjoyed this fun little Disney-inspired post!

See you next time! ❤

Artsy Chic


Hello there!!! I have some super duper exciting things to share, so here we go!

Last night, I had my first art showing!

I was asked by a DJ who I follow on social media about setting up a table at Art Hop, which is a once-a-month event downtown. I was, of course, ecstatic!!! I had to pick the perfect artsy/feminine outfit that would reflect my own art, so I went with this.  The ring is my own creation, of course!



I took the day off from work just to enjoy the day before I arrived early to set up. Going to Yellow Mug coffee shop, it was very quiet because a) it was a weekday and b) the weather was SOOOOO terrible! Rain and wind, all day. But, I got to enjoy the warmth of the coffee shop indoors and watch the rain through the windows. 😉

As you can see, I had a celebratory birthday cake macaron with my coffee that morning. ❤





Here is my set up! I brought out my top favorite art and jewelry creations. ❤ I had the opportunity to walk around the room and look at other artists’ work and share our inspiration behind what we create.

For me, all of my work has an underlying theme: femininity! My jewelry has mostly a cutesy, floral theme to it, and my digital art is all of women with their own type of beauty and mystique to them. Both my outfit and display have a lot of pinks and florals, because pink is a powerfully feminine color and flowers are Earth’s natural beauty. Flowers comfort me. ❤


The art show started off quietly, but as the evening went on…


…it picked up and was packed! It turned into a house party environment with musicians performing and people dancing. It was very fun. 🙂

At the very end of the night, I sold a ring! I was pleasantly surprised. The entire night was a lot of fun, and several friends of mine came through to see my work and show their support. I was touched! ❤

This was a big deal to me because I have wanted to showcase my art at Art Hop for a long time! I set up my table display on my own and it’s just how I hoped it would look. So I feel really happy that I accomplished a long-time goal!

 Have a happy weekend! See you next time!
