Last week, my mom surprised my sister and me with a trip to a local botanical garden! I've been begging for months to go to the Huntington because of my love for the beauty of nature. One day, I found a nearby botanical gardens which was much closer to where I lived and much cheaper in comparison to the Huntington's ticket prices. The Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanical Gardens is absolutely one of the most loveliest places I have ever been! We went somewhat late in the day so we were all sweltering in the hot California summer heat. Here's some words of advice for you if you decide to visit a botanical garden: don't go at 2PM in the afternoon like I did or you would end up being a roasted pig. That was the only con I have encountered. Besides getting to see beautiful plants, there were also peacocks roaming around freely throughout the park. I have to admit the rose garden was my favorite section! Everything there was just so lovely. It looked like the scene of the perfect garden wedding or fairy tale setting. There were also some old buildings but unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to take a look inside. Touring hours were in the morning if I remember correctly. Overall, this is a lovely place to loose yourself in. I can't wait to visit once again!

It had been a month since I've posted anything on this blog. Sorry for my prolonged absence. Why, you ask, that I haven't posted for a month? Well, this summer kept me busy with lots of summer assignments for my classes this upcoming school year. I'm still not done yet! So closed though. Just some more reading to do. They've been keeping me away from the Internet world for a while, which is good in a way. All this time I usually spend online is not healthy.
Today, out of sheer boredom, I decided to pick out my pencil and doodle something to pass time. The result was a lot better than I expected it to be. The drawing pays massive inspiration to Paper Fashion. Her watercolor drawings are absolutely pleasing to the eye. When I stumbled across her Instagram, where I first discovered her, I spent countless hours scrolling though each of her pictures and staring in awe at her fashion paintings. I really loved how she adds little pieces of bedazzlement to her artwork so I decided to try out this myself with random objects I had lying around.Continue Reading

Because of the gloomy weather earlier today (so shocking for SoCal!), I decided to go for a colorless outfit. Weather always have an effect on what I wear. Because of all the clouds, I went with a basic palette of white, gray, and navy, what you would typically call neutral colors. Though the colors were bland, I tried jazzing up my outfit with bird prints and lace-trimmed pieces, such as the white blouse I was wearing. To tie off my entire look, I added this beautiful watch necklace one of my friends gave me for my birthday. This necklace instantly became one of my favorite pieces the moment I received it. I've been wanting this since forever. Thank you, Stephanie!
