Just a quick (and over exposed) photo of a hairstyle I did a while back. I saw this on Pinterest and had to recreate it. It's basically just a simple dutch braid around the nape of my neck and then I put a hat on top! It's a cute and easy way to get the hair off of your neck and still be able to wear a hat. Hope you guys like it!!

Hey guys! Just wanted to show you an outfit I created to try dressing up these pajama shorts from Brandy Melville. I think they would look super cute, with tan gladiator heels, sadly I don't have a pair of those though, so I went with my black heel ankle boots. The button down shirt kind of reminds me of the button down pajama tops, but a black sheer top is a more formal version (and it matches my shoes). Coming up with it in my head I was kind of worried it wouldn't look that great in reality, but I was pleasantly surprised when I put it on. I think this outfit would be great on cooler summer days and a transitioning outfit from summer to fall. You could recreate this outfit with any pair of loose comfy shorts and a semi loose button down top.

I'm looking for something I can just throw on to keep me a little warmer during the fall. I love the look of capes and it's basically like wearing a blanket out in real life, which is a dream come true for me! I've started to look into a cape for this fall, but I also found some extra large square scarfs that could double as a cape, and now I'm not sure which to get. I'm thinking that a large scarf would be enough for the fall and could also be used during the winter as, what it is, an oversized scarf. These are some I'm looking at, let me know what you think!

When I found this earring on Fashionology the other day, I was so excited. It's so cute and sparkly which I love. The photos don't capture how delicate and beautiful in person the earring is. How it captures the light and shines bright. Over a year ago I pinned a photo of an earring very similar to this on Pinterest and I've been looking for it ever since.
Fashionology is handmade sterling silver jewelry, I would check them out if you like really simple and cute pieces. Their jewelry is very simple and geometric and their new collection has a lot of tribal aspects. Their pieces are very different than anything I see everywhere else. I also really liked these Teardrop Quartz earring and these Dot earrings.
I must also add that they have great customer service, unfortunately one of the quartz stones fell out the same day that I received the piece. I contacted them and they quickly replied and were so nice about it, they sent me a new earring right away. All their jewelry has a one year warranty, which I am forever grateful for.

brandy melville shorts & american eagle sheer button down
I have some actual photos of this outfit on my camera, but unfortunately I can't get them onto the computer and edit them at the moment, so there will be another, bigger post on this outfit with better photos and where it came from. Unfortunately I can only post photos from my phone, so there will probably be a lot of POV outfits and other things that didn't go on Instagram up on the blog for the next month or so. I currently have two outfit posts, a jewelry review and I will have a bunch of photos from Vietnam, so don't worry there's lots of content coming your way :)

Went to a local Japanese grocery store and we picked out the sodas with the cutest bottles, and candy with the coolest packaging. The peach soda was actually pretty good, but we can't figure out what the lucky cat soda is supposed to be. It's a little sour, seems like something I know, but I can't put my finger on it. The Super Soda has a very very very sour powder coating, but after that it was sweet and then a powder filling that was a little fizzy. It's very hard to describe, but its definitely an experience. The other bag was other flavors of soda, coke, grape, melon, lemon and ramune. This one was sweet and also had that fizzy quality. It was a lot of fun picking out drinks and candy that we had no idea what would taste like and even more exciting trying them.

tried a tutorial from Amber at Barefoot Blonde
Love her hair tutorials, wish I had as beautiful and long hair as her. But I can never get my hair to stay very long in loose braids, it just slips right out. I love this hair style because there is so much texture and I think even as it slips out it still looks beautiful. All those braids were quite a work out for my arms though!
I miss this coffee so much when I'm in NY. Philz Coffee is a chain in California that serves a wide variety of blends of coffee, haven't tried a single one I didn't like. The Mint Mojito might be their most photographed and famous cup. It's sweet and creamy, and they stuff the cup full of fresh mint. It is a light coffee that is very refreshing. Also tried the Anesthesia to the Upside with cream and sugar today, I really enjoyed it. Had a very full coffee flavor without being overwhelming with just a little bit of sweetness. Would definitely recommend both of these cups.

|our finished bun & the cookbook|
We bought frozen plain buns so we only had to take on one challenge at a time and then we have the pork belly after cooking it for two hours, some greens and lightly pickled cucumber I think next time we'll try making our own buns and cutting the cucumber a little thicker so they hold their crunch for longer. The only seasoning we used in the whole dish was salt and sugar and hoisin sauce and it turned out really good!

I mostly enjoyed looking at the old posters and advertisements, a lot of the graphic design I really liked, you could really see how they used the grid. I wish I could have gotten better pictures of the posters, but the lim was so dim and the spotlights added a lot of glare. These are just two photos to give you an idea of what I was looking at.

|Two of Urban Outfitters most popular bralettes.|
I love bralettes for layering because they add just a tiny little peak of texture or color and they're super comfortable. :)

Bought lunch at Gayle's Bakery and then brought it to Seacliff State Beach for a picnic. Every time we go to this beach we stop at Gayle's to pick up food for our lunch. Huge selection of food, we got sandwiches, pasta, pastries, bread and shrimp that were all delicious.

Virgil's is my boyfriend's favorite root beer, and we finally found it at Whole Foods. There were quite a few brands and drinks that we've never heard of before so we also picked up Fentimans Cherry Tree Cola that had a very cute dog logo.
Virgil's root beer tastes like black licorice &
Fentimans cherry tree cola tastes like sour cherry
I also had to try this wild poppy because the bottle is too cute.
I love the little poppy.
I actually really like this one! It really does taste like peach and the light vanilla makes it very sweet.

meat combination & ye doro tibs
I love Ethiopian food and this is probably my favorite place. The flavors are so bold and buttery with a little bit of spice. The cheese and the salad add a nice refreshing touch, especially good on very hot days. This restaurant has won tons of awards, and I highly recommend it!

|after three days|
Because of the drought here in California most of the grass around our house is dead and my two cats have nothing to snack on so I planted some cat grass for them until it rains here again. The eggshells are super cute and also great to put seeds in because they will decompose and add nutrients to the soil when moved to a bigger pot.
I soaked the seeds for a couple of days first, and then filled the eggshells with potting soil and crammed a bunch of seeds into each egg. I didn't expect so many of them to grow, so I'll probably have to move them to a bigger pot sooner than I expected.
