this past weekend, i had a girls day at the lab. i loved wandering the cool stores and restaurants like buffalo exchange, urban outfitters and gypsy den. buffalo exchange is a thrift store that in my opinion, is the best in orange county! they are a little pricier than the goodwill but i have found some amazing things there, like gucci pants from this season (which were unfortunately too small) and a d&g coat (that was unfortunately too big). we didn't buy anything today on this outing but it was still fun to look. the gypsy den is a great local hang out and it reminds me of the elephant house in edinburgh, scotland... sigh such good times. the gypsy den is known for their great drinks but my favorite is the vanilla chai tea, which i am addicted to... its a problem, really

favorite jeans

Photobucket

lately, i've been loving these jeans. they are by a brand i had never had (or even heard of) before called blank. they're boyfriend jeans but they are still fitted. they are also ripped which gives them a 'i don't care' vibe but above one of the rips, there is a string a rhinestones which makes them so unique. perfect weekend jeans. if you're anything like me, finding a good pair of jeans is a real rarity so these are a real treat. in general, this is my casual, go-to outfit: a sweater, tank, ripped jeans and moccasins. it's comfy but cute and perfect for weekend errands and chilling out. so if you excuse me, i'm busy chilling out in my cute jeans

eat, pray, love



i adore yoga
i love to read and i read whatever i can get my hands on but i especially love to read about india, africa and asia
my favorite thing to do in the entire world is travel

eat, pray, love incorporates all my favorite things mentioned above and more. when i first heard about this book, i wanted to read it but I already had like a million other books stacked on my shelves to read. then i discovered there would be a movie coming out based on the book staring Julia Roberts! so basically, i had to read it! since i got it last week, i have been reading it non stop since. i swear that book is life changing! i'm not going to tell you what it is about much more than the character eats in italy, prays in india and finds love in indonesia. so please just read it. its that good

so i finally had a new blog shoot with my best friend kayla! i'm on spring break (glory hallelujah) and i've had a nice break so far. everyday has been full of sleeping in and relaxing, something i rarely experience during school! my inspiration for this outfit was centered around this amazing coral necklace that I bough a few summers ago while training with the joffrey ballet. it's so unique and simple and it's always fun to wear something with a story behind it
