Help Reduce Bloating

Bloating: it's horrible. Actually, that’s an understatement. To me, being bloated is one of my least favorite things. No one likes feeling fat and sluggy. Personally, I am most self-conscience about my stomach since I had a major gut when I was younger and it just reminds me of those dreadful years.

13 Signs You Are a Cat Lady

Growing up, my mother forbid me from having animals in the house. It was too much of mess and I apparently  “couldn’t handle having a pet”… whatever that meant. However,

A Day in Seattle with Jessica Simpson

When I think of Jessica Simpon, I think of an all-American girl washing a car with cowboy boots and a white shirt. Unfortunately, I could not make that happen; but white converse and a Coca-Cola bottle will have to suffice.

Dress Like Royalty

I was scrolling through Kate Middleton's blog for some style inspiration and came across this beautiful white lace dress. One thing we can learn from Kate is that class is never out of style. You can still look chic with knee length skirts and long sleeve dresses. This is one of her more "casual" looks and I'm totally diggin' it.

London Dreams w/ Ekaterina Kukhareva

There are a few things in this world that make a girl feel as beautiful as a long, shimmering gown does. If my gown is a perfect fit and makes me feel invincible, what could ever stop me? Nothing. That’s exactly the attitude I need to have with or without the dress because you really can achieve anything you set your mind to.

What to Wear to Kimye's Wedding??

The not-so-royal wedding is once again upon us. Maybe 3d time's the charm? But like any other celebrity marriage, should we take bets? Or perhaps Kim K finally found love? Regardless, I couldn't care less about her love life since it is after all, her life. Although, I'm happy for her! This also gave me a great opportunity to lust over gowns that could buy a car. 

New Beginnings

After many months of collaborating with my developer, my new website is here! It's been long over due and I'm ecstatic about it!! :)

For Mom

Wore this cute little outfit while I was shopping for my Mother's Day gift a few weeks ago. Love the causal, beach-y vibe of Sanctuary clothing and the clash of the different patterns. I decided to follow suit on tying the shirt around my waist!

Harrison Hot Springs Resort&Spa

With all the traveling I've been doing lately, working out, plus my bad posture, my back and neck have totally turned against me. Last week, my back pain was so extreme that I couldn't even bend over or sit for long periods of time. On top of that, it caused

Healthy* Saturday

Health. It's so overrated now a days. Everyone is falling to trends like "gluten free" and kale but they don't necessarily understand them. That's why I want to change "Skinny Saturdays" to Healthy Saturdays.

Spa Wknd Getaway Essentials

Ever have those weeks where you wish you had a spa weekend getaway? Me too. Every single week. Luckily, today I'm heading out to Hot Springs in Canada! Mother has been there like 1000 times but my dumbass always refrained from going when I was younger since I wanted to sneak out and party. Now, I realize the importance of a relaxing weekend (and how horrible black circles are). So, along with my weekend essentials, I will be posting beauty & wellness tips from the pros - you can subscribe to my blog here

Pleated Skirt in NYC

 Another post from NYC! Wearing the most fabulous Louis Vuitton sunglasses. They have sparkles!! Styled the look with the skirt and tee I got from the Forever 21 store in Times Square for a cheap and simple look. This was on the way to sushi on Sunday morning! 

Also, I'm planning to go into more beauty/lifestyle posts, so you can subscribe to my blog here or the link above :)

Chanel Cruise15 Goes James Bond

It was painful to write this blog. First, I was forced to look at the heavenly location of where the show was set, the collection, and on top of all of that, the extremely coveted new handbags. Who in their right mind wouldn't have wanted to be at that show??! After crying for a good 3 minutes and grabbing some coffee, I was finally ready. 

Chanel in Dubai. Genius

When Can You Wear a White Dress?

The color white and I never got along. Ever since I was a child, my mother would forbid me to wear or even purchase white tops, jeans, and/or shoes. Why? Why did my mother oppress me from such key pieces in my closet?

Society Grl Has Sole

Happy Monday! Well, as happy as a Monday can be.. My usual Mondays consist of 8 cups of coffee, crying, trying to hide from my problems under my covers, and studying. One does not exist without the other. However, this Monday I'm excited to share my new collab with Sole Society! This casual look is accessorized using all Sole Society pieces. One of my favorite pieces,

Oh, to be Lily Bass

In honor of Mother's Day I wanted to do a tribute to one of the chicest, wealthiest, and faux Mother's of all time. Lily Bass. If I could choose to be any kind of mother in the future (if I even want to be one) I wouldn't hate being Lily Bass. 

I was never the type to "like" kids ever since I was a kid, but

Tips on the Track Pant Trend

Track pants are my greatest discovery lately. It is rare when fashion and comfort practically combine, so whenever such a trend passes by, I'm always an advocate. These Chelsea 28 track pants are perfect for casual chic, but easily transform for a beach day with the girls. I was actually checking the links on Nordstrom, and they even paired the two the same way I did! LOL!

Throwback to Newport Beach

I had these set of photos saved for this week because I absolutely love them. It's probably one of my favorite posts I've ever done on this blog. I love the view and the happy vibe of these photographs. Palm trees, the beach, and comfy chic are literally me. These past few months I have been trying to figure myself out, and I realized that I have been trying to be someone I'm not. That's one step closer, right?

You're So New York

While spending my weekend in New York City, I dedicated it to actually exploring the city and the "humans of new york." The past few times I have visited, I was in out and out of cabs, my hotel, and Lincoln Center. I never even tried a real New York hotdog!! It was my mission to see the actual lived-in places, not only the tourist sites, that make up the grand city. 

One reoccurring themed flashed before me: 

Kate Moss x Topshop in NYC

First outfit post from my trip to NYC last weekend! I wore this jumper the night before for our little Sangria night that my girlfriend, G, had at her place on the Upper West Side. I forced my mother to get me this jumper the day before I left to NYC while I was in school because I was NOT going without a piece from the Kate Moss x Topshop collection. 

The Kate Moss x Topshop jumper is a perfect fit, and I love that it makes my legs looks miles long. The sheer top and back is sexy enough for a night out, but a cute blazer totally transforms the look from day-to-night. I typically would not wear a bra with such a piece because the beauty of the lace is lost if there is an ugly bra sticking out in the back.. #nobrarevolution.

Last Min Mother's Day Gift Guide

Mother's Day is next Sunday and I am so late on shopping. While browsing my gift, I found a few perfect gifts for Mom. Hope this helps! SHOPPING GUIDE >>>

Best Looks From Met Gala 2014

The annual Met Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is often called the "Fashion Oscars" where top celebrities show off their sense of style and play around with a certain theme each year. Anna Wintour had dubbed this year - "White Tie & Decorations" - making it perhaps one of the most of formal events in it's history. 

From Oscar de la Renta to Dolce & Gabbana, the gowns and gents were looking glamourous last night, but some had totally missed the mark, going from fab to WTF? Eager to see all the anticipated outfits, I couldn't resist playing Joan Rivers for a day!

SG Takes NYC

I know I try to post everyday, but let's be honest, I really want to enjoy NYC without worrying about what outfit I'm wearing, what client I'm meeting, and/or what taxi I have to catch next. These few days I'm taking for myself to enjoy and finally explore the city! Last few times I've been here I've been  working, so today and tomorrow I'm taking time off!!

Summertime Happiness

Finally, the first official beach day of the season was upon us! It's only May and here in Seattle it was like 81 degrees yesterday!! I have been dying to wear a big sun hat since last summer, so I grabbed my tanning oil, towel, and sunhat and headed to the beach.
