What to Wear: Vegas

Day Look

Vegas Balloon Rides Tour

Chicwish black shirt / Barbara Bui leather motorcycle jacket / H&M blue jeans, $30 / H&M short boots, $76 / Rag bone leather bag / Wrap bracelet / Bangle bracelet, $7.57 / Ray-Ban ray ban glasses / Hermès silk scarve

Evening Look

What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas

Isabel Marant leather sandals, $875 / 3 1 Phillip Lim leather handbag / Bling Jewelry sterling silver jewelry / Pixie Grey stackable ring / Casetify iphone case / Chanel mascara, $38 / Barry M matte makeup

When reached out to me to create the #UltimateVegasOutfit I was totally up for it! I ended up creating two outfits on Polyvore, a day and night look.  I've been to Las Vegas many times and it's just one of those cities you need to visit in your lifetime, it's surely one of a kind! There are still many things on my bucket list to do in Vegas!

One thing I would love to try in Vegas next time is a hot air balloon tour of the city, I mean what better way to see Vegas than from a bird's eye view! Although the times are pretty early, you can't beat a desert sunrise!  For this occasion I would go with a casual-chic yet comfortable look. This look is also perfect for brunch right after either at "Eat" in downtown Vegas or tasty desserts at Serendipity 3 located at Caesar's Palace.

For the night time outfit I opted for an embroidered dress and lace up heels for that dressy "Vegas" look. This look is perfect for dinner and drinks at Picasso Restaurant overlooking the Bellagio water show or KA's Cirque Du Soleil show at the MGM Grand Hotel. I also can't forget to check out the lounges and bars at the Aria and Wynn Hotel!

Homemade Harvest Parfait

In honor of October's arrival and my excitement for fall, I got inspired to make my own homemade quickie parfait. If you haven't noticed from previous pics and posts I'm obsessed with parfaits and acai bowls, the more toppings the better! :)
It took me less than 10 minutes to prepare this in the morning before work. It's so quick and easy to make, and it's also a perfect midday snack.

Here's what you need:

1. Yogurt 
( I used Fage yogurt)

2. Sliced apples 

3. Granola 
( I used Kashi's honey almond flax granola)

4. Dark chocolate bits
(Trader Joe's has yummy dark chocolate with almonds I just cut it into chunks/ pieces and voila)

5. Pumpkin spiced pumpkin seeds
(Again, Trader Joe's has the best pumpkin spiced seeds and they're the perfect addition!)

6. Cinnamon powder
(one or two pinches should be fine for that extra kick)

Last but not least, mix it up and enjoy... it literally tastes like autumn in your mouth! 

Cheers to a new month lovelies :)

Shoreline Village

♫ Spoon- Do You 

(Wearing: Brandy Melville cami and necklace, Lee's vintage short, Heavenly Couture hat, Cynthia Rowley sandals, Yoins bag)

The official "last" Summer weekend was spent in Long Beach's Shoreline Village with my family, I couldn't have asked for anything better. We spent the day eating ice cream with my little cousins, checking out the cute souvenir shops, checking out the Pirate festival, basking in the sun, and ending the day at the beach. It still feels like a never ending summer ( heat wave and all) here in SoCal, but I think I'm so ready for the weather to cool down and actually enjoy fall. 

Hope you guys are enjoying your week so far!  :)

Quotes & Sunsets

♫ Herbie Hancock- Cantaloupe Island 

I finally tried out this new place in Fullerton called: Veronese Gallery & Cafe. From the outside it looks like an ordinary two story house but the only difference is that it's filled with plants and artsy decor everywhere. I instantly fell in love with the ambiance!  The vibes were chill and the atmosphere had this calming effect with jazz music playing the background, it must have also been the plants and the water fountain sound that gave this effect. I love the home-y feeling of this place, I also love how spacious the outdoor patio was and how every table section had it's own unique decor. I settled on a comfy couch and my table had a bunch of hand written quotes stuck under the glass by many of the other customers who ate there too. Overall, the place had pretty good service and yummy peach iced teas! But I can't wait to come back when the weather cools down to try out their hot drinks and desserts and cozy up by the fireplace with friends. 

Happy Week!
