Spent an amazing weekend in Orange County a few weeks back and just had to shoot at the hotel I was staying at. The trees, the fountain and the water was the perfect back drop that I wasn't going to let go to waste. I decided to go shop at South Coast Plaza since I didn't pack any clothes besides swimwear (Am I really a fashion blogger?!) This whole look besides the bag cost me less than a $100. Budget shopping at it's best!

Floral Denim + Trench Coat

Photography by Gabriel Troullier

A simple outfit complete with navy, white and tan for an evening out with the boyfriend. I've been obsessed with trench coats lately and this one puts the icing on the cake. It's the perfect cover to wear over floral denim! I would easily transition this look from summer to fall in the next month or so. Time is just flying by way too fast this year that it's scary! One thing to look forward to? New York Fashion Week in September! What are you looking forward to before the year ends?

Novalash Eyelash Extensions with Arianna Montazem

I met the amazing, Arianna last week who welcomed me onto her bed of beauty with open arms. I was excited to finally get my eyebrows shaped after what feels like years and to try eyelash extensions for my second time. First she shaped and waxed my brows ever so gently and quick then it was down to business. She applied a tape under my eye to keep them from opening and over the next hour, she applied individual extensions to my lashes. It was probably the most relaxing hour of my life! The best part of the experience is that she caters to your needs and wants to make sure you're happy with the outcome. You can choose from long to short, extreme to natural lashes. I always want go for a more natural look so I decided to go with more thickness adding length just on the ends.

All I can say is that I love them and want them year round! If you have or have never tried eyelash extensions before, I definitely recommend going to Arianna! The price for a full set is $200 but she's offering $50 off until July 31st! Fills cost $95 every 4-5 weeks and she can also shape your brows for $30. Check out her Instagram HERE for more photos and contact info!

A Weekend Away From Technology

Last weekend, I decided to skip town and go on a nature trip to Sequoia National Park. Sometimes you just need to put your hectic city lifestyle aside and enjoy the great outdoors. It really is so easy to forget to enjoy the simple things in life!

So I packed no bag, left my phone and computer at home and wore the simplest outfit I could find. I wanted to forget about texting, calling and Instagram. I wanted to forget about looking perfect, trendy and cute. I wanted to just be me!

When I arrived, I was in complete awe and amazement of nature’s beauty. The trees, the waterfalls, the sky! Oh my! I found complete peace and serenity. I definitely recommend taking some time away to enjoy life’s little moments even though they may hardly be little!

Denim Shorts for Summer

Photography by Natalee Shale

I usually hate to wear shorts unless I'm wearing my MinkPink Slasher shorts from Nasty Gal. They're probably my most coveted item that I've owned for over two years now. I kept this look casual and simple for lunch in Santa Monica pairing it with an oversize off the shoulder top from Michael Stars and cute Nine West sandals. How amazing is the color?! I'm in love!

Midi Skirt

Photography by Natalee Shale

I've had this midi skirt from Forever 21 since last winter and I'm so glad I can still wear it during the summer months. Midi skirts seem to be the new fad but mostly with tulle and fuller styles. Since I'm petite and bigger on the bottom, I prefer the sleek ones that make me look taller and give me a lean shape. All I'm thinking now is that I should have bought this in all 3 colors! Lesson learned!
