If you're like me who stuffs everything in the bag right before going out the door, which includes the cell phone, then you'll understand my increased irritation for digging through the purse looking for the phone to check the time. With graduation a few days away and college only a few months away, I need a more efficient way to check the time without having to spend time searching for my cell phone. Watchesonnet provides an array of designers from Cartier to Michael Kors. I'm still contemplating which model to purchase, but hopefully by this summer's end I will be able to don a new accessory that doubles as a tool on my wrist.

Another white on white ensemble. So these past few days and the following few days and week, I will finally be wrapping up the last of my academic courses here in high school. It's so relieving to think that I will be moving onto a new chapter of my life. A chapter where I hope to continue to learn and grow as a person all-around. And continuing down a path that I've chosen believing that there will be no regrets. Until next time! xo
Pastels galore. These photos have been sitting on my desktop for the past few weeks and have acted as my means of inspiration for my past few candy colored ensembles. Whilst cleaning out some folders, I decided to share some musings for today. Bisous! xo
"Loved" T c/o Wildfox Couture | Mint Jeans | Vintage Kitten Pumps | Asos Peach Leather Clutch and Sunglasses | American Apparel Lilac Lacquer
Getting quite some wear out of this super-soft Wildfox cheeky "Loved" T. The chic level of a soft tee paired with soft slim jeans skyrockets when it's ultimately the most comforting fit to wear when it's one of those lazy days.
I've been a big fan of Wildfox Couture ever since I learned of its inception back in 2009 after spotting their pieces sprawled across the likes of Seventeen Magazine and lookbook images reblogged thousands of times on Tumblr. I was excited to be able to style some pieces from their collections - literally every piece is to die for. This super cute pony print skirt is possibly the cutest skirt I own, not to mention the softest. On another note, I'm currently in the midst of planning travels for this summer. It's been awhile since I traveled and I'm dying to set out on another adventure, fingers crossed! Bisous! xo
"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."
- Mark Twain
There's exactly fourteen more school days left for me before I graduate high school and I'm ecstatic to no end. I'm close to finalizing plans for college and my life for the next four years. But we never really finalize plans, do we? With the surprises and obstacles life throws at us at times, it's hard to really plan for anything. But as I daydream through my last and final class periods, I am writing and listing all the things and places I want to do and see in the next four years in my journal. It's the thought of taking initiative and doing everything in my own power to make my dreams and wishes come true that fuels my soul and my ambitious self. I've always been a dreamer and I won't ever stop.
(gif of a snippet of one of my favorite scenes in Almost Famous)
Heavily inspired by the photo above from Dolce & Gabbanna's Fall 2012 Ready-to-Wear collection, I knew I had to channel black & gold for my one and only prom in my high school life. After seeing Asos' "All Night Long" lookbook, I knew exactly what I wanted to wear. Slip on a black body conscious dress with gold jewel embellishments, cinch on a black leather and gold adorned chained belt, stack on the black and gold bangles and a few swipes of my favorite Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte lipstick. Pucker up them lips and it's glamour time.
Since I discovered Danny Robert's work two years ago, his drawings have always been an inspiration to me. The color tones are always so mesmerizing and the attention to detail is impeccable. Being an art student, it was love at first sight.
