More Wine Please

Do you drink wine? I drink wine on rare occasions. I actually don’t drink much at all because I don’t like the taste of alcohol and the burning sensation in my throat. Since I don’t drink wine, I decided to create an outfit inspired by red wine. If you know me, you know how much […]

Cruella de Pipes

Doesn’t this outfit remind you of Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmations? The hubs thought so. I used to love that movie when I was a kid and watched it over and over. I think that’s the movie that made me love dogs. I grew up having 10+ dogs (not at one time) over the span […]

One of my NYR was to eat less refined sugar. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it was going to be. I only fell off the wagon once this week. The rest of the week was sugar free minus the optional fruit of choice a day. I’m also gluten and grain free so that eliminates […]

Fast Lane Fashion

This week has been a rough week for me. I’m actually teaching my very first college class at the end of this month so the prep work is taking up a lot of my time and energy. I’m a little late on this post, but sometimes all I want to wear is a comfy cotton […]

Sailing to the Moon

I didn’t intend to look like Sailor Moon today, but it just dawned on me as I was preparing to write this post. I think it’s the color of the boots and outfit. We can draw inspiration from anything right? I actually took Japanese in high school for 3 years. It was easy for me […]

PipesnBellsleeves

Bell sleeves were the trend of 2016 and it’s still going strong! There’s something about the dimension, depth and billowy freedom the sleeves create. It’s been one of my obsessions this F/W and I love seeing all the variations and details of the bell sleeves. I’ve seen HUGE bells (I mean, bigger than my head […]

Best of 2016

I can’t believe the year is almost over! My oh my how time flies when you’re super busy and working 349347 jobs and hours. A lot of people have been saying that 2016 was a rough year and hope 2017 will be better. I completely disagree. I’ve had a lot of personal breakthroughs in 2016 […]

Pipes X Rainforest Sunglasses

You can never have too many sunglasses in LA. It’s pretty much always sunny here and I swear today was 80 degrees. Because of that, I never leave the house without a pair of sunnies. These Rainforest Sunglasses are the perfect pair for me because they’re light weight, sustainable, polarized, comfortable and chic! This Rainforest […]

Boxing Day

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! Today is Boxing Day, but what the heck is Boxing Day? As much as I wanted it to be about the actual sport, it’s not. There are many versions and interpretations about  BD. One of the interpretations said it dated back to the Victorian era where employers would […]
