Snorkeling with the Turtles


I'm not much into snorkeling - I always seem to have a problem with water getting in my mask... but when Moana Waikiki offered the opportunity to swim with the turtles at a turtle cleaning station, I couldn't say no!

We went around 9 am, which meant we had to get up at 7:30 so we had time to rent an underwater camera. I really wanted the Canon d30 PowerShot which was supposed to be available but when we arrived, Hawaii Camera only had a d20. I remembered literally 6-7 years ago I owned (and still do but who knows where it is) a Canon d20 PowerShot too. So that was a funny coincidence to me. It felt so early because my boyfriend Davor and I had gotten used to waking up more around 10 am.

Pink Floral Dress


I wore this dress the other day for a sunset sail with Moana Waikiki and I am just in love with it! I took off my heels once I got in the boat of course but this dress was just right. You might expect a dress to blow around too much on a boat but this one is very fitted, the ruffle gives the illusion that it is looser I think and that's great!

This morning we actually went back out with Moana Waikiki and they took us to this amazing spot to swim with the turtles! There were so many turtles!! I got cold really fast though the water is technically/supposedly warm (like 75 F?) and had to get out after half an hour. It was such a great experience though and Johnny (our guide) really knows his stuff!

Also for anyone wondering, when it comes to makeup and snorkeling, it doesn't work together :( I wore a little foundation, filled my brows lightly, added some light black pencil liner on my upper lid and it was all gone by the time I got out. My recommendation: face self tanner for at least 3-5 days previous,  temporary eyebrow dye (I like Godefroy Eyebrow Tint) or microbladed brows for those light eyebrow gals, and eyelash extensions if you feel like shelling out the $$$, though in general eyelash extensions are so perfect for those summer vacations when you want to go makeup free but still look naturally glam.

XOXO

Winter Getaway Essentials


Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We've been having crazy weather lately, and the rain has been non-stop. Since California has been in a terrible drought the last few years it is wonderful we've been getting rain (though, it's been a little too much and there's been some flooding--stay safe everyone!). I'm in Hawaii right now and it's mostly been warm, beautiful weather but even we've had some crazy rainy days. I'm crossing my fingers the weather clears up for everybody this week!

Faux Suede

Turtleneck and Faux Suede Mini from Kitsch Couture (10 N. Santa Cruz Ave. Los Gatos, CA 95030 Mon&Tues: 11am-7:30pm Wed-Sat: 10am-8pm Sun: 10am-7:30pm 📞 408.354.7909 to order) | Joie Over the Knee Boots | Furla Bag

As you guys can see, I bought these AMAZZZING Joie boots in both gray and black!!! First I ordered the black ones to check the fit and once I saw how perfect they were for skinny legs like mine (11.5 calf circumference) I immediately ordered the gray ones too :)

I decided to pair these black OTK boots with a look I picked up from Kitsch Couture in downtown Los Gatos recently, so hopefully they haven't sold out of these pieces! The turtleneck I am wearing is the softest sweater ever... I think I had one of this same material when I was like nine years old, and it was hot pink :)

Suede minis have been trending since about fall and I hope it goes into spring a little. I love mini skirts in general and the more creative the fashion industry can get with them, the better!! In a few hours I'm off to Hawaii though so you can expect to see some summery looks real soon!
XOXO

One lucky winner and a friend of their choice will win free dresses for each month of 2017. Head over to lulus.com/dressgiveaway for your chance to enter!

I've been looking for a good sweater/bodycon dress to layer up with and this black knit dress exactly what I was looking for. It's soft and double lined no it's not see through at all. I paired it with some OTK boots to keep warm and a matching suede moto jacket. This jacket is perfect because too because it actually allows you to move your arms around (I always hate when a jacket doesn't let you lift your arms up lol) and for under a $100 it's a total steal!

New Year's Resolutions: How to Make it Happen



I personally prefer to make a list of goals whenever the inspiration hits me! Which ends up being pretty often. I don't know if it's over ambitious or not but I usually feel like I end up accomplishing more rather than waiting to do it once a year on January 1st.

However, this post will be all about how to make goals and succeed at obtaining them since many people like to do it once a year. A recent study from the University of Scranton’s Journal of Clinical Psychology found only eight percent of those who make a New Year’s resolution see their goals come to fruition. Here are my suggestions based on what I have learned through research and experience:
