My Daily Retreat with the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

Life can be hectic for me on a daily basis. From work to blogging and everything in between, I cherish my moments of solitude. Since I was a little girl, there was nothing I enjoyed more than laying in my bed with a good book. These days, I've replaced the old fashioned hard covered book with the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite. When I'm at work, I dream about the moment I can pick it up, crawl into bed and read the latest book I picked off the Amazon website. 

The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite has a lot of great features, my favorites being the lightweight design, the long lasting battery life, and a front light that's easy on your eyes. I also love the huge selection of e-books you can download from fiction, to autobiographies, to romance novels. The options are endless! 

I hope I inspired you guys to take a few moments to yourself this holiday season. Get away from the stress, put your phone down and pick a great book to read on your Amazon Kindle Paperwhite.

Thanks for stopping by!

Fall for Fringe

Photography by Justin Truong

Happy Monday folks! Today kicked my butt so this post will be short and sweet. Sometimes it's nice to let the pictures do the talking, you know? 

I styled this fall look for a casual day. All black (of course!), paired with a camel coat and the hottest fringe boots I own from Zappos. Honestly, I can't live in anything else these days. 

Thanks to everyone who entered my giveaway with JTV! I'll be emailing the winner tonight.

Holiday Gifting with DSW

Holiday season is here, which means colder weather and gifting our loved ones. Knee high boots are always a hit with the girls this time of year, so if you’re wondering what to get her, look no further.

I’m sure you’re all familiar with DSW and their enormous collection of shoes. They carry a ton of brands ranging in prices from heels, to boots, to flats to get you through any occasion. Their slogan, “Big Brands, Little Prices” holds true. Free shipping and free returns at any DSW store is a big plus, especially if you’re an online shopper like myself. 

This season, make DSW your go-to shoe shopping store. I suggest checking out their boot shop collection HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!

My love for denim will never falter. If someone asked what is your go-to wardrobe item, denim will always be the answer. Since I'm always on the go, whether rushing to work, sitting in traffic or meeting a friend, comfort is always my top priority. That's why these Hudson Lily Mid Rise Jeans from Hudson's 2015 Denim line are my new go-to for my day to day activities. 

I've always preferred basic over elaborate but this pair is the perfect in between. I've always been a fan of camo print and these are no exception. With the perfect amount of stretch, they hug my curves and keep me comfortable all day long. I love Hudson denim because their mission is equal to mine; rooted in the legacy of British cool and liberated by the free spirit of LA, Hudson is worn as a badge of style, commitment and devotion. 

Shop Hudson's new fall collection right now on Zappos.com! No stress, shipping is always fast and free and their customer service is outstanding. The best part is, your doing it all from the comfort of your own home.

I left my Heart in Hawaii

Earlier this month, I spent an amazing week in Kona, Hawaii for Crystal's birthday. The Fairmont Orchid Hawaii was gracious enough to let us stay at their beautiful property and it was nothing short of magical. We spent our days on their private beach, snorkeling with giant seas turtles, paddle boarding and drinking pina coladas.  The hotel itself had a seaside charm with modern rooms, a pool, three restaurants, a gym and a golf course. My favorite part by far was the complimentary breakfast buffet they had every morning and watching a spectacular sunset every night from the beach.

Our itinerary not only consisted of lots of r&r, but many physical activities were planned from hiking, to off-roading, to spelunking. We saw some of the most amazing sights which I captured on my Instagram. I've recapped them all for you below.

Spelunking in Hilo

Fall Favorites

Photography by Crystal Kong

Today is a quick post on what I'm currently loving for fall. Capes and wrap dresses in shades of grey, over the knee boots and cool sunnies. I've been on the hunt to update my wardrobe completely, and I've been eyeing some amazing things from Lookbook Store, Zara and Forever 21. Boots, camel tones and monochromatic looks are on the horizon. Stay tuned!
