Hearts - Hapa Time

Hearts

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

I'm not big on wearing reds and pinks on Valentines Day. But I do like hearts, and so, here is my outfit that I wore yesterday, with a whole bunch of them :)

New faux fur cardigan - Express, dress - Forever 21 - new tights - Pamela Mann, necklace - Wet Seal, shoes - Aldo, ring - Aldo

Thanks to FashionByHe for holding a contest for these amazing tights, which I won! Too cute and perfect for Valentines Day!

How was your Valentine's Day? I made white chocolate dipped strawberries with crushed nuts for my boyfriend, since he doesn't like regular chocolate and he is on his Hawaii workout/diet plan. Chocolate dipped strawberries is reasonably healthy, since it's mostly fruit. They looked SO pretty and were SO delicious, and so I wish I got a picture but I was in a hurry to get out the door :( One of my sisters insisted it wouldn't turn out right if I didn't put condensed milk in the Nestle White Chocolate chips, but it turned out completely fine! If you try it, I recommend pouring about 1/2 c in a bowl at a time and microwave it at 20 second intervals. Stir after each interval, and it should take about 3 intervals. Once the chocolate is melted, dip the rinsed and dried strawberries very quickly, because the chocolate hardens fast! And if you want, dip half of it in crushed nuts like I did. 

My guy and I also went to a cute little cafe that I had a Yelp deal at. Despite the discount it was unreasonably expensive. The food was also pretty good, but not worth the money we paid. Still we had a nice time and got to try somewhere new :) 

And if you are interested in my nails, I did them myself using the polishes below. For a good tutorial on gradient nails, check out this one by MissChievous on YouTube :) I also used some Sephora by O.P.I nail gems. The Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat is the best thing in the world for getting your rhinestones to stick!!!

  26. For sure your outfit is a better choice than any pink and red stuff for Valentines Day.
    The hearts on the tights are a great eye-catching! They look perfect for the event, and... for the rest of the year. ;)

  48. Hey, i came across your blog via some of your comments in Connie's "snowy's corner" blog, i really appreciate people that take time to read and comment and don't just leave a follow me message and i always take time to check out their blogs and try to get to know them better. so u couldn't be an exception.
    to be honest i didn't think that i would like your blog as much as i do. however you are one of my fave blog with outfit posts, as i am more inspired by blogs that feature editorials or general fashion infromation (such as i do) i haven't come across a blog as great as yours for a while.
    i can really identify myself with some of the things you wear, and sometimes u even make me change my opinion for something, as your pink nails, i was never one for pink nails but u totally make me want to try out this look, its so beautiful.
    p.s i loooooooove your eyemake up its always so fab.
    sorry for the extremely long comment, i am not trying to overflatter you.

  58. Hey Jess!

    I loveeeeee your tights!! The hearts at the top are super cute!! They're transparent at the top? And congratulations on wining them!! What a score :)

    Those white chocolate dipped strawberries sound soo yummy! Too bad there is not a photo! :( :( Maybe next time?!

    It's great you guys got to try out a new restaurant but it is unfortunate it was unreasonably priced. Good thing you had a deal!

    And beautiful nails!
