I am just taking a little break from work before having to go back into focus productive mode! I have been really lacking on post lately but that will be explained at the end of this, for now lets get started with this OOTD.
This day started off as a not-so-typical-LA-shoot to a full on mainstream-touristy-cliche LA-shoot. I really wanted to visit the Architecture + Design museum building before they demolish it for the new metro station but I guess they decided to shut it down early? It was suppose to go on until the end of April, instead it was already closed when I went 2 weeks ago. Boo. So the closest, walkable place to go was none other than the infamous LACMA.
True story.. I once drove by at night and saw a man dressed as Jesus emerging from the glowing lamp post with his arm raised high approaching the busy LA Streets.
I have been using this bag a ton lately and you will never guess how much it was. $5! YES! Only in Asia… sorry. I have decided that if this purse dies on me then I will invest in one that is similar in color because this red compliments almost any outfit. Its not a vibrant red so it won’t stick out as a in you face statement piece but it is also colorful enough to where you won’t miss it (c’mon its red).
Give yourself a break this summer from denim shorts and pick up a pair of beige/khaki shorts! Denim is great but these shorts transition from day to night so much more effortlessly.
I am swamped and crazy busy for the next couple of weeks trying to get a show together so that means sleepless nights until opening day. For that reason, my normal posting will resume at the end of May! I have 2 haul videos that has been filmed and one completely edited but I am having such a hard time converting it since my computer has run out of disk space. The frustration of constantly moving things into my external has got me pulling my hair out. There is only so much I can remove from my computer without it handicapping me when I work on-the-go. OKAY enough ranting about my computer problems! Hopefully I can get those 2 hauls up and if not I’ll just post them as a blog post which will save me hours of work.
Thank you guys so much for reading and I’ll see you in my next post

How did you like waking up right next to me? (; Do you feel like we took our relationship to the next level? haha
This was more of a wake up with me video I guess.. just sharing with you how my morning goes!
As I get older I realize the importance and joy of getting up earlier with more spare time to get ready in the morning before going out to start my day. I am able to just relax and take my time (IF I get up earlier enough that is) to get ready without rushing and constantly trying to just slap something on to look “presentable”. How I start off my morning can really set the mood of how productive I will be for the rest of the day! If my lazy body can help it I try to get up earlier everyday but sometimes… sleeping in is a whole other realm of satisfaction.
If you actually want to know how I put my face on everyday then just comment below and ill work on a tutorial for you guys (:
Hope you enjoyed!
Until next time,
I just couldn’t wait to wear some of the pieces I recently picked up from H&M so here is the gray jersey with sheer arm panels.
The weather has been super nice in SoCal so it was warm enough to wear shorts but a light sweater is needed as well because temperature can drop quite a bit when the sun goes down.
Sweater: H&M knit
Sunglasses: Rayban aviators
Recently I took a short day trip out to Temecula,CA for some wine tastings. If you are in the LA area, the drive is anywhere from 1.5-2 hours depending on traffic of course.
You can grab some lunch in Downtown Temecula which has that old town feel. There are all sorts of cuisine and little boutique shopping areas.
We visited a couple Wineries but the two that I would most definitely recommend are Wilson Creek and Ponte. All the wineries are on one road so you literally just drive from one to the next and their less than 5 min away (driving wise).
Wilson Creek Winery
This was at the end of road and one of the last wineries. The size and garden area of this winery is HUGE and beautiful. There are ample seating in the garden area with tables and umbrellas for you to sit, relax, talk, and enjoy your wine with friends or family. They have wine tasting $15/$20 per guest depending on if its weekday or weekends and you get to sample 5 different type of wines. They are known for their Almond Champagne which has a really nice scent of Almond but it does seem a little artificial. If you want to buy a bottle it’s actually cheaper to buy it at Bevmo or other retailers than at the winery. I though I had taken more pictures but I guess not.. so just go to their website to visualize what I’m trying to say (:
The size of this Winery is huge as well! There are two parts, one is the resort and the other is where the Barrel Room/Tasting Room/ and restaurant is at which is separated by a 5-7 min walk. The resort part was very new and decorated with a lot of reclaimed wood detailing. There are seating outside with fire pits incase it gets a little chilly in the evening. On the other side there was this beautiful garden area just outside the barrel room which is open for you to go into explore and see how the wine barrels are stored.
Tips** Before you go please check on the hours because a lot of them close around 5PM so we were unable to do some things that we wanted to… Like visit the Barrel Room..
so instead.. we were only able to take pictures in front of the pretty door.
Until Next Time,
Happy Wine Tasting!
