It's getting closer and closer to Christmas now and I love hearing Christmas songs on the radio and in restaurants and stores. It really brightens up the mood and really gets me into the Christmas spirit. One of my favorite things to do is wrap presents! It's kind of a weird hobby, but I really like unleashing my creative side and using all sorts of colorful and unique papers and ribbons. But before wrapping presents, you have to buy the presents, which reminds me that I haven't even started Christmas shopping yet! I suppose I'll just have to wait until next week, when I finish my classes this quarter. Once final exams are over, I'll have plenty of time for blogging and shopping!
In this post I'm wearing gold Club Monaco shorts with a navy blue, military inspired, silk blouse. I absolutely adore these shorts because, as you may already know, I LOVE sparkly/metallic things. The shoes are suede, green pumps, which are actually extremely comfortable! The hat is also Club Monaco. I really do love Club Monaco as a brand. Their style is very much like my own, very laid back and slightly dressy at the same time. They have amazing quality and the color palettes they use are always so lovely and complementary to any outfit.
Hope you all enjoy the pictures and have a great week!

So while I usually steer clear of the masses of people that hoard to the malls on Black Friday, my boyfriend actually talked me into going to the mall just for fun. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE shopping, but am not hard-core enough to fight all those seasonal shoppers jumping at a good deal. However, it was a very festive atmosphere and actually not too crowded at the mall today!
Anyways, the weather gets colder by the day, so I found myself looking at pictures I took during summer. The one above is one of my favorites that I took somewhere in Newport Beach. I guess the weather here is not THAT cold compared to other places (it's usually around 60-65 F most days lately), but it's still a little cold for me to throw on dresses or shorts. I think I just get really cold really easily.
Did any of you go shopping on Black Friday? If so, what did you get?

What's on your holiday wish list??? Let me know in the comments below!
Sorry I haven't posted in such a long time, I've bee so busy with school and celebrating my 21st birthday last week (it was on the 17th)! It's so exciting to be able to drink *legally*. I have truly envied the Europeans for their lower legal drinking age, but I have finally reached this particular rite of passage. I will have to do a post on my birthday celebration/gifts eventually. All in good time.
Anyways, today I have a superlong post with plenty of pictures in honor of one of my favorite holidays! Thanksgiving!!!! What could be better than a holiday that revolves around eating good food and being around family and friends? Our thanksgiving feast was quite traditional and consisted of stuffing, candied yams, mashed potatoes, gravy, honey baked ham, biscuits, and of course a turkey! I actually made two pies for dessert, from scratch I might add. I absolutely love baking, and it'd definately one of my favorite passtimes. All of our food was home-made from scratch...except the ham, which was bought from the Honey Baked (they have THE best hams). I'm still full from eating all that delicious food!
Even my puppies got to partake in the thanksgiving celebration, as they got to eat turkey for dinner. I'm quite excited to introduce them to you with some pictures after the jump. The white maltese is Ace and the brown pommeranian is Rooney. Aren't they cute?
Lastly, my outfit for thanksgiving dinner was pretty casual and revolved around the color pink. I had my fushia Zara blazer on and a lurex sweater under with some white jeans and coral flats. I also wore one of my favorite pieces of jewelry, my Louis Vuitton flower ball pendant. It was the first piece of jewelry my boyfriend bought for me at the beginning of our relationship, so it is very very special to me.
To all who celebrate this holiday, I hope you and your families had a fun and safe Thanksgiving!

It's been raining lately, which is amazing because I had a chance to break out my rain boots!! Living in Southern California it probably rains like 3 times a year...and is mostly sunny every other day. I really like rainy weather, especially when I can just cuddle up at home with my boyfriend, some hot tea, and a good movie. It is a pain when I have class though, since walking around campus and sitting through hours of classes soaking wet is not an ideal situation.
Today I saw the new movie "Immortals," which was actually really good! I really like how they designed the costume for the gods, who were all wearing gold and seemed to be glowing all the time. It definately made them look luxe and regal. It's hard to find good movies nowadays...it seems all the good storylines have already been done and everything seems really redundant. But I highly recommend this movie if you like Greek mythology and all that stuff ( I know I do!).
Enjoy the pictures!

For dinner we went to a place called Lola Gaspar, which is in the artsy area of Santa Ana. It was one of the most unique restaurants I have ever been to and the food was superb! I would definately recommend it to any of you who ever visit the area. It definately has a very fun, artistic vibe going on. My favorite dish of the night was an autumn raviolo, which was filled with sweet potatoes and short rib and drizzled with truffle oil. I LOVE truffle oil! I can't wait to go back to try some more of their dishes!
