Mission: Red & Green

Lightning Sweater: Thrifted, Top: Wet Seal, Shorts: F21, Tights: Target
Shoes: Harajuku Girls, Over the knees: F21

To the photo creeper I put a box over: I'm sorry but please don't creep in my photos... especially if I don't know you. 

We attempted the red and green...hmmm

Wow! Christmas is coming extremely fast...I DON'T have all my shopping done... but I have gifts for the people I care about the most...thats really all that matters to me.

My girlfriends and I decided on a holiday night out to a new bar that opened in the area...We attempted to be festive with holiday colors but by the end of the night they blurred together. Personally I cant stand the combo Red and Green...It's just as bad as Pink and Red...Cant do it...

My lightening bolt sweater has got to be one of my favorite tops I own...it's cropped and awesome and have never seen anyone else with is...True Love!

I hope everyone is excited for the Holiday as much as I am! Thank you for your comments and feedback on my last post...A lot of new visitors! Cant wait to check out everyones blogs!!

I Get It, Your Moody

<3 
Super Easy Pizza:
Boboli Pizza Crust...
Olive oil and minced garlic for sauce
Slice up mushrooms and red onions
Top with goat cheese
Bake at 450 for 10-15 minutes 

Yum
Oyster Rockefeller:
I would tell you how to make it if I knew how...my talented roomie created these

Love this photo frizzies and all 

Mmmmm scallops...again I didn't make these but I do know they were baked.
Then you dip in butter...as you know anything dipped in butter is fabulous!

 My friends and I are always looking for a reason to eat....we crave things and talk about them for a couple weeks until we can find a reason to get together and make whatever has been on our minds. As you can see the menu is completely random but oh so good....we spend hours making and tasting and sipping wine. Most of the time someone passes out on the couch (ahem....Stine) from too much wine... one is watching repeat  episodes of Chelsea Lately... another is cleaning...me well i'm usually devouring whatever fashion magazine is floating around. It's pure bliss and good for the soul to be around people you love and adore.

These next few weeks always tend to be a little stressful on everyone...for some stress rolls of their back and becomes nothing more then a petty annoying reminder of things that are going on. To others stress changes their mood and attitude... I guess the best advice I am currently trying to follow is be helpful, listen, be scarce if someone is busy and don't take things too personally....at least try not to take things too personally...i'm a sensitive creature so I have to remind myself of this often.... What is your advice for dealing with stress?



10 days til Christmas!!! Ahhh the countdown has officially begun!!

Tell Him Don't Hold His Breath For Me

Dress: French Connection, Tights: Target, Shoes: Bamboo
Bracelets: Everywhere




My boyfriend states "you look like your heading out for a night in Vegas".... my response..."this is way too loose babe" :)

Cant a girl just dress up for her man...I mean seriously I just wanted to look nice for him and feel like I was going somewhere awesome. Besides its sparkly and has totally been neglected in the back of my closet for months and months. I thought is was about time to bring out some holiday cheer/sparkle.

I attempted to go shopping this weekend...I just cant do it...I resort to online...I cant handle the lines or incredibly rude people it totally brings me down and does not boost my holiday moral what so ever. My roommates and I set up our 1 foot tall Christmas tree (if you follow me on Twitter you most likely saw'll this beast) and have been gazing at it ever since....To lighten and spruce things up we also bought a holiday scented candle...scent..."Christmas Tree"

Hope everyones shopping adventures are coming along...Thank you again for all your comments and support I enjoy them ALL!!

This week has been long...really long. I way am glad tomorrow is Friday. Christmas shindig with my girlfriends this weekend...cant wait, were thinking oysters and vodka. Best combo one could ask for....lushes...we know :)

Wore this outfit to work today, I am completely a heels girls but it was raining cats and dogs this morning. I cant help but bust out my leather boots to take them for a spin when puddles are gathering outside. The jacket is Billabong...yes Billabong, I was completely surprised also as I have seen nothing else from this brand that I enjoy since I purchased this jacket a couple years ago....

Life...

Hello...

Man O man all I wanna do is blog and talk about my favorite subject: Fashion. But unfortunately a little thing called life is pulling me away. I thought I would put together some of my favorite photos that are floating around on my iPhone....




Stine Bean

A sketch of me made by my bestie...for her illustration class 

Peace and Love, Mine is the red one

My babe and I on one of those perfect days at the beach 

This photos makes me smile every time I view it.

1. My boyfriend is graduating from college on the 20th....I couldn't be more proud...I have currently been a cheerleader (which i'm not very good at and am probably more annoying then anything...but i just cant stand down)  to help him along this last grueling week of studying and finals.

2. Christmas is coming...FAST!

3. How come us Californians are freezing...at 58 degrees...yes here we turn up the heaters when its that cold....spoiled!

4. I want to go to an ugly sweater party...

5. I want to post my x-mas list...but unfortunately it has turned into a novel...no biggie

6. I miss my fam bam... COME VISIT ME!

Ugh....Random but meaningful thoughts I have not been able to avoid in my head...

Does this time of year boggle you at all?

Ok Ok...Thanks for reading...Back to my regular posts tomorrow! :)

Have a fabulous day!!

Happy Friday Everyone!! Woohoo...its has been one long week adjusting back after a whole week off!

Anyways last night my girlies and I decided to step out on the town for a little dirtbag comedy (I swear this is what it was called I didn't make it up haha...dirtbag)...and it was definitely raunchy though dirty jokes are always good for a laugh or two!

I knew one thing...I wanted to wear my scarf as a top and my butterfly socks as feet warmers....I'm not sure where I come up with such ideas...but it works in my head!

Have a fabulous weekend and thank you for all your support and comments I truly appreciate them!!

Food Love

Left to Right: Aushak- Leek and Spring onion filled dumplings topped with yogurt and meat sauce.
Pakawra-E-Padenjan - Batter dipped eggplant topped with yogurt and meat sauce.
Sambosa-E-Goushti - Fried pastries filled with ground lamb and chickpeas


Shrimp Kabab
Kabab-E-Gousfand (Lamb)




So my first love is definitely fashion.....my second love is MOST definitely food! I looooooveee food...I'm not a picky eater and am game to try just about anything. One of the most awesome aspects of living in California is the variety of restaurants available with a few minutes of driving.

One of my besties is Afghan and her family owns and runs a couple of restaurants located here in the Bay Area called Kabul Afghan Cuisine. Let me tell you if you haven't tried Afghan food get to it I PROMISE you, you will LOVE LOVE LOVE it. So fresh and tasty...I beg her to go just so I can get my hands on fried eggplant and shrimp kababs MMMmmm. So delicious I recommend it to EVERYONE!

I know I know not my usual outfit post or fashion thoughts...but when I find something I LOVE I feel everyone should know about it...this will happen frequently on my blog cause I love a lot of things...i'm a lush I know  :-D

Has anyone else tried Afghan Cuisine? Is there another kind of food I should familiarize myself with?

Thank you for your comments and love on my last couple of post...I appreciate them all!!

Hope everyone had a fabulous holiday weekend...I know I definitely enjoyed my time off...now...back to the grind!!

Polka Dot Love

Top: Merona (thrifted), Skirt : Vintage (handmade), Shoes: Vintage, Belt: Thrifted


Sunnies: Chanel
Polka dots always put a smile on my face...I like them in all sizes and never get tired of them. It's the one pattern I feel never goes out of style. I love the length of this skirt not to short or long and perfect for running around or even wearing to work.

Thanksgiving is tomorrow...I love Thanksgiving...Mostly because of the food but also because of the friend and family bonding time. There is nothing like sitting around stuffing face and giving thanks to the people who inspire and enrich your life...blissful.

I have a lot to be thankful for this year...My family...the best family anyone could ask for....the bestest mom...the bestest fathers (yes I have two...I am that lucky)...my ok siblings...lol...I kid I love them....my friends...the most wonderful friends, everyone deserves such loyal and honest people in their life....My babe....awww my babe is the best...im thankful for him because he believes in and supports me everyday no matter what...puts a smile on my face and keeps reality at my forefront without blinking...swooonnn <3

I'm the luckiest girl...


Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Layered...

Blazer: Vintage, Shorts: Loehmanns, Top: BCBG 

Socks: Forever21, Shoes: Gojane

Sunnies: Oliver Peoples

Hola Everyone!

Well California has finally seized to the climate and has been raining cats and dogs alllll weekend...BOO! I guess I don't mind a day or two of it, but seriously I cannot stand driving in the rain or carrying an umbrella that breaks every other time you attempt to open it....just sucks. So I am currently hoping my 80 degree days return with a swiftness so I can go back to being blissfully happy!

I was in the mood for layering this last Friday....wanted socks with heels and a blazer with a flowy blouse...I accomplished it and loved it :)
I scored this blazer last year at a thrift store for a couple dollars, stuck it in my coat closet and completely forgot about it...silly me...found it a couple weeks ago and haven't taken it off since, its soft and warm which is all I ask for.

Thank you for the sweet comments on the last few post...I definitely appreciate them all!

Most of the Time I am Searching for a Pot of Gold

Dress: Forever 21



T.G.I.T <~~ Thanks God Its Thursday
Cause that means tomorrow is Friday and I score an entire 10 days off work! Yes!!! Cant wait for some scrumptious turkey and unnecessary amounts of casseroles. Definitely another favorite holiday of mine.

Thanksgiving....a day to count your blessings....reflect on everything and everyone in your life...nap in the middle of the day...and continue to eat leftovers for a week after. Amazing...

I love this dress, its bright and happy. I need bright and happy sometimes.
