W Hopping












Merry Christmas everyone! Hope everyone is surrounded by loved ones during this special day. I haven't updated my blog in awhile because I've been busy job searching. I'm proud to announce that I found a job finally! The one down side is that its in NorCal =( As a true SoCal girl, I am extremely reluctant to leave all the great food, friends, and family I have down here. I'm planning on coming back at least twice a month though! I'm a bit excited and scared at the same time of moving up there all alone. I guess I'll become more independent and will definitely be blogging a lot more!

First of all, I just want to say that I've been wanting this Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C. for months!!! I even went to the Rebecca Minkoff sample sale searching for this particular purse, but came home empty handed. The women there were pretty crazy! I was sooooooo unbelievably surprised when my very very best friend bought it for my as a combined Secret Santa gift as well as a going away present! She is just the nicest and most thoughtful person in the world! Love her dearly and will inevitably miss her soo much! I love how the purse matches with just about anything! I've been carrying it with me everyday since I got it.

I've been searching for an army green coat for a couple weeks and finally found the perfect one at Forever 21! They were having a 30% sale for all their outwears, but now its 50%! ***UPDATE I went a couple days later and it was on clearance for just $10!!!!!****Hate it when that happens! But I think I still got a pretty good deal on this wool coat. Its perfect for the cooler weather up north. I love how the fabric is thick and not cheap looking/feeling at all. It can be worn with or without buttoning or even half way buttoned. I'm just wearing warm black leggings underneath.

I found these suede Calvin Klein boots at the new Bloomingdales Outlet in Livermore. It is ultimately my new favorite store! I've scored such great deals there. It's the only Bloomingdales outlet on the west coast! That's one of the only things I'm looking forward to in my move to NorCal. I bought these because the heels weren't too high, like all my other heels. It really makes a big difference on the level of pain my feet are in afterwards. I walked around all day in these heels and it wasn't painful at all!

My girlfriends and I had a wonderful W adventure in LA last weekend. I didn't even know there were 2 W Hotels in LA. We first went to the one in Westwood to go Ice Skating and then we got a room at the one in Hollywood where Drais is at. It was definitely a lot of fun hanging out with the girls and just enjoying the wonderful amenities at the W.

I've been browsing through Pinterest a lot more now and found these cute penguin nails that I thought were pretty easy to replicate. Received many compliments on how cute they are! Although I don't think they match well with this outfit!
