Photo Diary: Winter Break

Hey guys!

I know I have been extremely MIA with this blog, and I am deeply sorry for the few people who actually read this haha. Blogging and fashion have always been my passions, but I have been cheating on them with my other passion that I have been pursuing: traveling. I have traveled to New York City and Morocco in the past month, and will be going to London and Paris at the beginning of January. As part of my birthday gift, my parents have let me travel to all these places during my winter vacation, and I cannot be more blessed to be able to experience all this! I am truly grateful and humbled to have the opportunity to travel to all these amazing places in the world, which was why I wanted to capture and document every aspect of my trip. I just wanted to share some of these moments with you guys so I hope you guys enjoy!



As you can tell, I enjoy jumping in my pictures.... :P I am only on my 4th day in Morocco and will be traveling to a couple more cities including Marrakesh. Can't wait for 2014 and what is to come in the future. So much has happened since I started college in August, and I am just happy to be where I am today. I wish the best to everyone, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!

Love Always,

A lot can change in a month. New friendships formed, old friends lost, rekindled friendships from the past, and unexpected relationships blossomed. These past few weeks have been an emotional roller coaster, leaving me restless and busy. Midterms are over for me, and another wave of projects and papers is just overwhelming me yet again. I kind of want to treat this blog more like a personal diary now, documenting not only how my style has progressed, but also how I mature as an individual since coming to college. I'm super excited for Halloween so I can dress up and go out and just have fun. I've been going to the gym almost everyday because it's really been helping me cope with stress. I'm eating healthier than I did back home, and I'm exercising more so I can temporarily escape from all the things I need to worry about. I feel like a more refreshed person, and knowing that everyday a new challenge awaits makes me feel alive. I haven't felt like this in a long time, and I'm just glad I've found my outlet and source of motivation. I'm hungrier than ever to succeed in this pool of talented, aspiring successes that I cannot afford to just camouflage myself. I got an A on my first college essay in my writing intensive class, which surprised me because I never got A's on essays in high school. That really allowed me to take a step back and realize that I deserve to be here and I earned my place to be here. I miss my family and home everyday, but I know I am here for a purpose. I sound so cheesy but I'm just really proud of myself to have made it this far and I'm just in such a good place right now. Also, my best friend is coming to NYC to visit me for my birthday, which I am so stoked for because I miss her so much. I'm humbled to be surrounded by amazing people and to have kept in contact with my friends from high school, the ones who have been genuine friends to me. Vampire Weekend was amazing even though that was from September, and I am so excited to see Sky Ferreira in November! A lot has gone on and I just love being busy and living my days to the fullest. I hope everyone is doing well in school and constantly revisiting their passion for what they love. Stay fabulous and I love you guys!

Love Always,

He's just a Wallflower.

Today was the second day of school, and so far college has been...not exactly what I had expected. Initially, I thought it was going to be easy leaving home and family, but it really has been hard for me to adjust New York life/college life. Talking to my family on the phone is the best way to relax for me now rather than going out and partying like everyone else is doing. My classes have been amazing and I have met so many nice people! I'm just really scared for winter to hit New York because I will definitely not be able to withstand the weather with the one coat that I currently own. Good thing I am going shopping this weekend! My schedule is pretty spaced out, so I have an hour or two in between each of my classes, which gives me some time to relax and listen to music. I really really miss California and all my friends back home, but I need to prove to myself that I can do this even without my strongest support systems. It is weird to see how differently people from the East Coast interact with others compared to people on the West Coast. Aside from struggling to adjust emotionally, I am definitely enjoying the freedom that I am having in college.

I am super SUPER excited for Vampire Weekend on the 20th! Going to be seeing them perform at the Barclays Center in NYC and that is going to be my first concert! I have dedicated my concert virginity to VW....totally worth it though!

Trying to get used to college is really damn difficult, but at the end of the day, it's what you make of the experience. I choose not to be sad and grumpy, and simply enjoy the time I have here. I'm sure everything will turn around as soon as I start opening myself to new doors and embrace uncertainty. Surprisingly, it hasn't been as cold as I thought it would be in New York yet! I'm actually kind of looking forward to the cold weather and to seeing some snow.

Love Always,

We don't sleep when the sun goes down ☾

I feel like Aladdin lol

This outfit is kind of ridiculously weird, but I actually really like it LOL. It is the perfect summer outfit for a casual day out or for going to the beach. The graphic tank is very on trend for the summer and gives off a very California-esque vibe. The turban was a last minute add-on, and I'm glad I incorporated it into this outfit. I like to put my own unique twist on something that is generally ordinary and simple. It's weird to realize that I have had this blog for almost 5 months now. That may not be a long time to some people, but for me, the 5 months I have dedicated to this blog has been a truly refreshing and rewarding experience. Being able to connect with others who share common interests with me through fashion and my personal style has been a pleasure. So thank you guys so much for supporting and reading!
Make sure to take a minute to go to my Lookbook page and fan me/ hype my looks!
Though the summer is about to come to an end, remember never let the positive vibes end and be sure to carry them on with you to wherever you will go.

Love always,
