                                                                                                 Photography by Ryan Chua

This was just an amazing day all around and if I could turn back time to recapture it, I would. I got to meet my new friend/photographer, Ryan Chua in Manhattan Beach to do the shoot of a lifetime. Perhaps it was the dress that made it so magical as well. I felt like the beach queen with the perfect backdrop and my dress blowing in the wind. Check out a cool behind the scenes video here. However, what made everything complete was having my favorite blogger girl, Elizabeth to shoot with. I can't wait to do it again in August!

Thanks again Ryan for being so damn awesome!

 I've been using this case for quite sometime now and can't seem to find anything better, nor do I want to! Not only can you fit an ID and credit card into the bottom slot, the back portion holds a mirror. For us girls, especially bloggers, how convenient is that? I love that I don't always need to grab my purse if I'm in a dash to run into a store and I can reapply my lipstick without having to grab a makeup compact. The case also comes in a variety of trendy colors!

Now you have chance to win this case that is available for the iPhone 4, 4S and 5. Here are the rules:

1. Repost this photo on Instagram
2. Follow @mobiletogs on Instagram
3. Follow @melanee on Instagram

Denim and Stripes

                                           (Caged Clutch c/o Dailylook / Silver heels c/o Charlotte Russe similar here)

How perfect is my necklace from Oia Jules?!! Pretty darn perfect if I do say so myself. I decided to keep this look simple but chic with my favorite jeans of the moment, a striped top and some pops of silver. I wanted to pair it with a black top but decided to change it up a bit. It seems that my last minute styling did the trick. This is one of my favorite outfits thus far! You can check out other pretty jewels from Oia Jules here.

Purple Reign

                                                                                          Photography by Maria DeGuzman

Simple. Classic. Romantic. The perfect trio of words to describe this look in the park. This skirt is probably one of my favorites of all time. The color is a beautiful shade of purple; easy to style in the summer with anything lighter. The skirt will also transition well into the fall and winter months paired with anything darker. It will definitely reign my wardrobe the rest of this year!

Cult In Color

A few weeks back, I had the opportunity to work with this amazing denim brand called Cult of Individuality for their "cult in color" campaign. Myself and three other bloggers, Stephanie, Sara and Hannah Beth got primped with hair and makeup then got styled in different colors of denim. The best part?  Working with these hot ladies while hanging around this badass car. Doesn't get much better than that!

Now you have a chance to join the cult and win a free pair of jeans! Regram the last photo onto Instagram,  follow and tag @cultdenim and hashtag #1cult. The winner will be announced on August 1st. Good luck!!!! Make sure you also follow Cult on Twitter @cultdenim and like their facebook page

Special thanks to Alyssa at EFGPR!

I was asked by the Senhoa Foundation to style a piece of jewelry from one of their collections. At the last minute, I ended up choosing this gorgeous necklace designed by model, Coca Rocha. It was love at first sight, but I kept thinking that this wasn't something I could wear everyday. Honestly, when do you ever get to wear something as special as this? If you're like me, never. So I decided to have fun with it, do something out of the norm and really challenge myself. I styled it in a way so women could see that they can wear it on any occasion. To complete my look, I headed straight to my favorite online retailer, Nasty Gal and chose the white denim pants and bustier. I made the shoot extra special by summoning my inner Coca, and shooting more of an editorial/magazine style piece. It ended up being edgy, sexy and definitely me!

If you didn't know, every Senhoa jewelry piece is individually handcrafted by a survivor of human trafficking. Senhoa's passion is to create opportunities for survivors to earn an income, share their stories and raise awareness against modern slavery. This was a special shoot for a very special cause!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving such lovely comments! I appreciate every single one!
