The Holidays at Disneyland!


The boyfriend and I decided to use our Disney annual passes this past weekend and spend a day at Disneyland to enjoy their holiday fun! Little did we know that it was going to be incredibly busy that day, but we made the most of it! I love coming here around the holidays because of the decorations, shows, and yummy foods! We even stopped by the "Jingle Jangle Jamboree" to see what it was all about. Turns out, it was where kids can come take pictures with Santa Clause and various Disney characters or watch a holiday show. I just looked at it as an opportunity to take blog and outfit pictures as you can see. :)

Foodie Friday

Wako Donkasu
Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, CA

Met up with friends for dinner to catch up and got to try out this great little restaurant. They mostly served katsu, which is panko breaded chicken or pork. You generally choose what type of meat you want. I chose a combo which gives you small sides, salad, chicken katsu, this breaded potato ball, one shrimp, and a side of soba noodles! It was super yummy and I had enough leftovers for lunch the next day!

Foodie Friday



800 Degrees Pizza
Pasadena, Los Angeles, CA

I've heard great things about the Westwood location when it first opened up there, but I never had a chance to try it since I'm never in that area. So when I heard that they were opening a new location in Pasadena, I knew I had to jump on that chance to finally get a taste of their pizza!

It's basically a pizzeria that lets you customize your pizza. They specialize in Neapolitan pizza, which tends to be thin and not super crispy, but apparently you can ask them to cook it a little longer or 'well done' for a crispy crust. I saw people eat it with forks and knives. 

The boyfriend and I chose a couple of their specialty pizzas since I had no idea where to start with making my own pizza. I'll leave that for the next time I go! Our pizzas were very flavorful and they use burrata mozarella cheese which is my favorite! Their topping selection is enormous and of such great quality so you're bound to make a delicious pizza even with the most obscure topping combinations! 






After our pizza meal, we went over to Intelligentsia for a late night cup of coffee. Yummm....

Embroidered in Black and White


I was recently contacted by Eshakti to write a post about their clothing and website. The way it works is that they offer a large variety of dresses that you can customize and fit you correctly. Being that I'm petite, this was very exciting for me! I often find it really hard to find clothing that fits me perfectly especially in length. 

They gave me a direct link to items that I can choose through their blogger program so that I can receive an item to post about. I did have some limitations as most of the dresses were not available, possibly because they have already sold out. 

I then decided on this black shift dress with white embroidery on it with two pockets in the front. It has short sleeves and is at a great length since I gave them my measurements and height. 


The material is adequate and washed well. I didn't see any shrinkage or damage from washing in a machine on delicate settings and cold water, but I'm usually very careful with washing any of my things. It is actually really comfortable and casual, which was what I wanted and I recommend this site for anyone that wants to make sure they get dresses that fit their body perfectly. Make sure you know your measurements and be as detailed as possible so that the dresses fit you as best as possible. They make your dress according to the measurements and information you put on the order form. 

Visit them at their website, www.eshakti.com, And get started!! :)




Thank you Eshakti for this great opportunity to try out your website and your clothing! And thank you for the lovely dress!

Olive Midi Dress


Being as petite as I am, it is such a huge and tedious task to find maxi or midi dresses. Of course, they are generally way too long on me and I need to spend the extra money on alterations. Recently, I found this amazing midi dress at a store at the Americana in Glendale called Kaitlin. I'm sure it's supposed to be at or a little below the knees for the average person, but it was a midi length for me! I thought it was perfect for days when I want to throw on something simple and loose. 



I fell in love with the feminine lace details along the neckline. It is also lined so I don't have to worry about it being too sheer, which tends to be a problem I encounter frequently as well. But nope, this is as simple as throwing on a dress and sandals!
