The OC Fair



American Eagle shirt, UO top,H&M shorts, Vintage belt,Sabina New York bag,Ray-Ban Wayfarer, Chuck Taylors


Australian battered potatoes


Western Sausage.


This probably wasn't the best dessert to get at a fair,but i just haven't had banana split in such a long time. It looks so good that a photographer spotted me eating it and took a picture :)


We had our dinner at Santouka,which is probably our favorite place for ramen. We realized we already consumed enough carcinogen from all the grilled food we ate at the fair.

Salt Ramen. Yum.

Flea Markets and Tan Lines

A fun filled flea market hopping that my hubby and I did this past week. (Check out The La Flea Market and Melrose Trading Post). Went home with some interesting vintage clothes and accessories(how can you say no to a 30-dollar Italian leather sling bag?).


Our day ended with some unsightly tan lines including the ones from my sunglasses and straps of my gladiators :(


Zara jumpsuit and vest, Ray-ban Wayfarers, Michael Kors chronograph watch, Sam Edelman gladiators, Accesorize necklace.

Another Hobby

Aside from shopping, there are also other things i love doing. Collecting Blythe dolls and building chic homes for them is one. Honestly, buying doll clothes and dollhouse furnitures can be as costly as shopping for clothes. Especially if you like taking pictures of your dolls, you know you can't repeat the same clothes...BUT like any fashionista, one good picture can make you forget how your bank account took a few jabs. Here are some photos I took from the past months. Hope you enjoy them!

What I Bought This Week.


1.Dior Show Mascara- as a girl who is not blessed with long lashes, Mascara is a must. I can't even get out of bed without applying this.
2.Benefit One Hot Minute- Gives you a natural looking sun-kissed glow in a minute or less.
3.Gap Pocket T- good thing i stopped by Gap when I was at the mall.. it was actually the last day of their 10 dollar T-shirt sale. you can't beat that price for a quality boyfriend T!
4.Topshop Leopard Print Scarf- sort of an impulse buy. it's really cute though.
5.Tarte Multipleye- this one simply multiplies my lashes like no other.
6.Benefit High Beam- the highlighter that will give your skin a healthy glow and not sparkle.

Deprived No More

Fall is undoubtedly my favorite season. I know summer is only halfway done and I have yet to pull my sundresses and bikinis out of my "summer essentials bin", but I can't just ignore this feeling of excitement. Growing up in a country where it's hot for most of the year, where the art of layering with boots to complete your look was nothing but a fantasy. I was deprived... So excuse me while I drool for these "nothing but hot" fall must-have boots!

My Warm Welcome...

Hi everyone! welcome to my blog. It's been 2 years and 2 months since i moved here to California (actually, since i moved to the states). I was born and raised in the Philippines. I decided to open a blog so i can share to you some things I get a kick out of.. fashion, food, travel etc.

I have always loved shopping and going out. Honestly, I'd die from boredom if you tell me to stay home for one whole day. That whole "PJ's-dvd-bowl of popcorn combo" thing isn't really my cup of tea. Flea markets, unplanned road trips, and unique eateries are my thing! Hope you enjoy this blog as it continues to grow. I will try to post as often as i can :) Salamat! ("thank you" in tagalog).
