Putting the travel diaries from Japan on pause first because as usual, it’s taking me forever to go through the thousands of photos I took on this trip. So in the meantime, let me share with you a recent #OOTD I wore last week. As you can see, I have a nifty backpack with me […]

Second Skin

Women and lace, they go hand in hand like bacon and eggs, coffee and milk, peanut butter and jam…(I’ll stop the comparisons here before I make you hungry.) I’m sure you get the picture.

Electrifying

My loyal readers know this–I used to shy away from bold lippies. It’s only been a few years since I started gaining an appreciation for them. If you’re like the old me who always plays it safe with nude and pastel lippies, allow me to convince you to come to the dark, rather bright and […]
