So I had recently purchased hot air-balloon vouchers from Sunrise Balloons in Temecula. I did not realize that they only operated during sunrise! So we had to wake up super early at 3am to get there at 5am! It was still dark when we all gathered up and they started filling the hot air-balloon. As we were starting to walk towards it, the operates received a call that there were some upwind turmoil that would cause the hot air-balloon to drop out of no where! So sadly our adventure was canceled. We were pretty bummed out, the only thing we got out of it was some pictures for this post. But the sunset was actually quite gorgeous that day on the vineyard.

I have recently become a big connoisseur of Michael Kors. First with his watches, then purses and now leather jackets! I absolutely love this royal purple purse. Its perfect for work and fits my SLR! =) Perfect for the fall.

I also love DOTS! I found these flats at the Aerosole outlet at Citadel Outlet (where I have been frequenting way too often because it's right next to my work) I saw a different design before when shopping at the Century City Mall, but they were kind of pricey and I didn't love the design. I have extremely sensitive feet so choosing comfortable shoes are essential. I really love Aerosole because they make very comfortable shoes with thick cushions at the soles like you're walking on air! Their designs are also not too shabby. I always look there first when I'm shopping for comfortable shoes.

I've been so obsessed with hilo dresses this whole season and have been on the lookout every time I shop. I so excited when I found this dress for such a great deal. I absolutely love this print with unique the patterns and also how extreme the cut is. Wearing the hilo dresses just make you feel so sophisticated and elegant. I'm seriously contemplating wearing a hilo dress at my wedding! haha I also am so in love with this bracelet/ring that I found at Foreign Exchange. I received so many compliments on it, probably because how unique it is.

I absolutely love sunsets and sunrises. I was so glad to catch the sunset this day at Laguna Niguel. It was absolutely breathtaking. Can't wait to go back to the beach again. I saw that it's going to be 99 degrees this weekend so maybe I'll be near the ocean once again.

Ocean Blues

These Brady Melville jeans are probably the most comfortable shorts. At first when I picked it up, I was pretty sure they were for kids because I thought that I would never be able to fit into them! I also thought they were wayyy too short! But after being forced to try them on, I was delightfully surprised at how well they fit and how remarkably comfortable they are! I've been searching for a great pair of white shorts all summer long and am so glad that I finally found it.

This Labor Day weekend, my family and I stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel. I had just recently attended a wedding here and was very excited to stay overnight. My sister works at the Ritz so we got a really good deal on the rooms. We were delighted when they upgraded us to a wonderful oceanfront view room! The resort, staff and view are absolutely amazing! This is by far one of my favorite resorts.

I have been watch hunting for quite some time and after a LOT of watch drama, I finally decided to get this Gold Michael Kors watch. I love how simple and classic it looks. I really did not like the ones with the three smaller dials that I really have no use for. I thought I would like the ones with crystals, but found that it did not look great on me. All in all, I am quite satisfied with this one and it goes great with my gold jewelries. The best part is that Most Michael Kors watches cost $249, but this one is just $180!
