I’ve always been drawn to more subtle neutrals & pastels for my wardrobe as well as my home. As i’ve been busy planning my wedding with my wedding planner, Jeannie, I’ve come to an interesting realization. The hues & shades that inspire you should play a major role in your wardrobe , and (vice versa) the shades in your closet should be a reflection of your surroundings (in my situation..my wedding).
Some random inspirations im currently working with for my wedding. Not sure why i favor neutrals over any color….possibly because its like a blank canvas..you can always build up and mold it into any hue you desire.
Hope you have beautiful weekend filled with lots of inspiration & little moments! HAPPY FRIDAY
Today we traveled 5 hours up the mountain to arrive at the beautiful Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan. I cannot tell you how ecstatic I am to be spending the next couple of days here at the LaLu Resort & Hotel…one of the most beautiful & exquisite hotels in the world! Our view over here is to die for …Will be updating you with pictures of my stay here in the next blog post!!
Also will be uploading the New Years Eve countdown tutorial tomorrow too!!! Lots of goodies in store for you! For now here’s the rest of the outfit from yesterday’s post! Not sure if you’ve noticed but i’ve been obsessing with the burnt color-burnt rose, burnt orange, burnt red, hence- the burnt bench in the background! hahah
I hope you all had a magical holiday with your loved ones! I am writing to you from a land far far away here in asia. Today we traveled down to the tropical south of Taiwan…who knew that the weather would be in the 80s here and I would be sippin on a pina colada traipsing around our beachfront hotel? This past week has been filled with adventures…we started from FREEZING (-15 degrees) Korea, then to semi cold Taipei weather (50 degrees), and now in the tropics (80 degrees).
As the year is coming to an end I cannot stop thinking about all the lovely moments we’ve spent together here on my blog, youtube, twitter, & facebook. It’s been wonderful being able to share my daily inspirations and glimpses of life with yall! While there will be many more wonderful things to come in the new year, I just wanted to let you guys know that I am Thinking Of You from a land far away!

It’s been one of those perfectly beautiful August weekends! Spent most of the weekend frolicking in long maxis (as seen here in this tutorial)to the flower mart, cafe dates, and dinner reservations. We filmed 2 new tutorials yesterday in our litle bungalow at the Chateau Marmont. Work hardly seems like work when you are sun drenched and surrounded by beautiful things.
And now to start off my Monday morning with a strong latte… catch me traipsing about town from meetings to meetings! HAPPY MONDAY darlins’!
In order to create a great wardrobe you need to start off with The Basics. I have decided to dedicate a whole series on BASICS because they play a huge role in a woman’s closet. In this video I teach you how to style one of my favorite basics….THE LITTLE WHITE DRESS! Hope you enjoy it!
Lately i’ve been finding myself wearing the same accessories and changing up the outfits. These days you will never see me without my black leather brim hat, House of Harlow sunglasses, Beso beso jewelry, Michael kors watch and of course my engagement ring. Speaking of my engagement ring i’ve been finding comfort in wearing All White lately. possibly my subcautious is telling me I need to start planning this wedding of mine! *sighhhhh if only I had more hours in the day. I definitely can use some advice on wedding planning right about now….or someone just really needs to kick me from behind to get me going!
(Dress- Zara, Blouse- Equipment, Hat- Urban Outfitters, Sunglasses- House of Harlow, Jewelry- Beso Beso, Watch- Michael Kors)
First off I apologize for the lack of updates..it’s been…well….crazy would be an understatement.
And the past couple of days has been a tumble of madness with endless amounts of work. Although I love my work I feel like a well-deserved break is appropriate right about now. From styling the former president of Mexico Vicente Fox and his wife for GENLUX magazine to a campaign shoot for a client to filming 2 new tutorials with Michelle Phan. I can now officially say its been quite a July! and now the anticipation starts for all the adventures of August.
These perfectly pink salmon pants were my purchase of the week! I found them for $30 at a random boutique on Melrose while shopping for a client! Such a steal!!!

Heres a little peepshow on what Michelle Phan & I worked on this past weekend. We will be releasing this tutorial later on this week…It was probably the most creative & fun tutorial i have worked on by far!
In this tutorial I am wearing a bathing suit from H&M, a scarf from Zara, House of Harlow sunglasses, & all jewelry from Beso Beso.
Hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial! I Would love to hear your thoughts & comments! Also would love to know which look was your favorite! Leave me a comment here and post up a pix on my Facebook page here with your version of the bikini wrap!
