Smell the Roses...

Hello friends!'s been awhile. My boyfriend texted me yesterday and said "how come you haven't updated your blog lately?" Can you believe even he noticed my MIA-ness? I wish I could say I've been off on some exciting adventures but it's just work, volunteer stuff, and my niece that's keeping me insanely busy. Whine whine whine bore bore bore. :)

Skirt: Ann Taylor
Necklace: Amrita Singh
Purse: Chanel Jumbo
Shoes: CL Prorata

I took these pictures on Father's Day and here they are...two whole weeks later. I remember mentioning to my dad once about how much I love the purple of jacaranda flowers, so he went and planted it one for me. That's my dad...always putting us first. <3

Blouse in matchy matchy shade with my jacaranda flowers....

And since I've been spending so much time with my sidekick, she makes an appearance again! Ahhh this little one is European I tell ya...always kissing people smack on their lips. You like our crocs. vs. Loubies battle? Crocs can win this time just because my niece is wearing them lol.

No matter how crazy life is, I have to remind myself to stop and smell the roses. I always get caught up being so busy and then I feel completely burned out. Good news is I'm going on vacation for about a week starting tomorrow. Woohooo!!! Can't wait to share it with you when I get back. :)

I shall leave you with this... My niece has something to say to you all: pffftttttttttt!!! :P

Happy Independence Weekend!!!


  1. What an awesome post :) The top and necklace are gorgeous! Your little niece is adorable and yes she can get away wearing crocs in all her cuteness :P

  2. Really nice top! Those pleats bring such a character to them. I personally can't wear this color (something about looking off and pasty) but it works well with your skin tone, and brightens you up. :) Your niece is super cute!

  3. I was wondering where you were, too! Glad to see all is okay. Your niece is adorable and I love that jacaranda purple color! (Also, first time we're seeing your face? Nice!)

  4. What a post coming back from your break! Is that half a face we see?! Have my recent posts rubbed off on you? ;)

    Love all the colors in this outfit, necklace, top, and even the soles of your CLs. Have a fun 4th and your upcoming trip! Can't wait to hear all the details :)

  5. I think it's so sweeet that even your boyfriend noticed you hadn't updated your blog! Great to have someone hold you accountable...Hahaha. =P Just kidding! No pressure to update frequently, just whenever you have the time and feel like it! =D I love the color of that shirt...then again, I recall you and I both love pastel colors! ^_~ Enjoy your vacation and can't wait to see pictures! P.S - Cee's comment about showing your face made me LOL! =P

  6. Your face is making a semi-showing! Yay! Lovely outfit but your neice and her crocs -- well, I think she outshines you : ) Oh and the fact that your bf cares about your blogging means he is a keeper, no?

  7. Aw love your outfit. The pics with your niece are super adorable!

  8. Elaine: thank you. hehe isn't niece's cuteness makes everything cute. i wish that applies for us too haha.

    kerri: i'm glad you like the color :) i wasn't sure if it would work for me either but happy that it's not terrible hehe...

    QFFS: haha i thought there were older posts that showed even more of my face! :P but don't look for them though lol.

  9. Cee: omg you & QFFS are making me self-conscious now lol. i rushed to do this post and didn't even pay much attention to my face pix :D but it's ok, in one of the old old post even more of my face was visible hehe...

    LPLemon: oh man, bf is definitely policing my blog haha jk. but yes, if i haven't posted for awhile, he does remind me :P

  10. Canadianpetite: oh yes, my niece outshines all day every day <3 about the bf comment...i'm not sure hahaha...

    LTDPrincess: aww thank you so much <3
