Turning My Back

posted by on 2011.09.30, under Outfit Of The Day

Currently writing from our cosy patio overlooking the city of honolulu…

And this concludes our 7 day vacation here in paradise!

So for now i’m Turning My Back on the breathtaking clear blue ocean & warm breezy nights.

I must confess as much as I enjoyed myself these past 7 days..i am so ready to get back into the flurry of things!

So long Hawaii…hello Cali!

Hope you have a lovely weekend and see you guys back on the mainland!

The Last Single Moment

posted by on 2011.09.29, under Chriselle Inc.

This week whirled by more quickly than expected..cant believe It’s our 2nd to last night here in paradise! I must confess I was starting to get used to this laidback Hawaii lifestyle….but soon enough there will be a change of pace and back to the LA hustle .

After a week long of breezy one pieces i’m now finally ready to transition back into layers upon layers, cashmere scarves , and soft cardigans.

Here are some images of me at our so called home in Hawaii for the past 7 days (the Kahala Resort). For now I will be soaking up every last single moment, here in paradise, before its gone….

Sunlit Daydreams & Saltwater Kisses

posted by on 2011.09.28, under Chriselle Inc.

It’s been quite surreal…..the other day we went horseback riding along the coast of Hawaii to watch the sunset. My horsey’s name was Casper and he was the sweetest & most well behaved horses out of them all! It was a little tough at first to learn how to navigate Casper but soon enough Casper & I bonded and we were galloping along the sandy seashore.

I have to say it was quite magical & majestic and has been the highlight of our trip thus far! (If your coming to Hawaii I highly recommend in trying this & thank me later :P )

Our vacation seems to be tumbling along at a very fast pace and soon enough we will be back in LA….. so for now back to my Sunlit Daydreams and Saltwater Kisses.



Live By The Currents, Plan By The Tides

posted by on 2011.09.27, under Chriselle Inc.

Aloha from the beautiful island of Oahu! I’m learning to love that feeling of having all the time in the world….

Nothing can compare to the feeling of toes in the sand with the intoxicating lure of the ocean. Yesterday we lounged around on our private beach at our resort then headed out to a Luau. Today we went horseback riding on the beach while watching the sunset..it was possibly the most breathtaking experience ever. Being far from the city and close to nature has really been good for my mind & soul. I’m really feeling relaxed, refreshed, & rejuvented…sometimes everyone needs a reset button to be reinspired. “At the beach, life is different. Time doesn’t move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides and follow the sun.”

Feel Gorgeous!

posted by on 2011.09.23, under In The Life Of

The other day I was invited to a very intimate tea party with the ladies of Victoria’s Secret. It was an afternoon filled with fond conversation over tea and chocolate dipped strawberries. We got the chance to meet & hang out with one of the angels, Lindsay Ellingson, who is the face of the new “Gorgeous” line & fragrance. Beyond the obvious of being uber gorgeous & uber tall she was one of the sweetest and most down to earth girls i’ve met!

Also got to know some awesome gals such as Jules from Sincerely Jules & Aimee from Song Of Style- such sweethearts they are! After our little intimate tea party, Victoria’s Secret took us on a little shopping extravaganza at one of their stores! I can now officially say I have a lifetime supply of cute Bras & panties!! Not to mention their “Gorgeous” line is to die for…it’s the perfect cut & silhouette!

Thank you Victoria’s Secret for such a lovely afternoon. Sometimes all you need is a cup of tea & a lace bralette to Feel Gorgeous!

A Bit Of Glitz, Glamour, & Tea

posted by on 2011.09.20, under Outfit Of The Day

Attended the most elegantly extravagant dinner party last night and I felt that some glitz & glamour would be appropriate for the evening. I’m sure you have noticed by now but i’m officially in the spirit of sequins! I just noticed that within the past 7 days i’ve worn sequins 3 times already (here & here). When the glittering rays of sunlight hit these sequins its a truly a magical moment.

On todays agenda- Tea time with Victoria’s Secret and some of their angels . Want to join me and the angels for tea today? well you can…digitally that is- follow me here on Facebook & twitter for live updates!

The Unexpected

posted by on 2011.09.19, under Chriselle Inc.

Spent most of the weekend catching up on shows from NY, wedding planning , and also a much needed Sex & The City Night in with the girls.

I’ve been utterly inspired by  mixing colors, prints, and textures… especially pairing pretty polka dots against a flashy sequins jacket. I’m all about pairing the unexpected! Speaking of Unexpected….It looks like I will be taking an unexpected (but much needed) trip to hawaii this Friday! Im super excited because it’s been years since I’ve had a vacation!

Tons of exciting little projects in the works and also lots of new tutorials coming out this week! Hope you guys had a lovely weekend and HAPPY MONDAY!
