Lucky in Love

I feel so lucky and loved by everyone around me. Although, I am far far away from home now in a new city, I feel so extremely blessed to have all the support and love from my dearest friends and family. I've never had a surprise party thrown for me and was thoroughly thrilled when all my closest friends and family actually successfully executed a surprise going away party for me. I'm seriously so lucky to have so many life long friendships with so many people. Good thing I did a mini shoot that morning or else I would've probably looked like crap at the party!

I'm always reluctant to buy things for full price, but I just really loved this top at Forever 21. The color blocking with the mint makes a great top to wear throughout the seasons. It was a sheer coincidence that I wore the lucky four leaf clover Juicy necklace and heart earrings that day! The necklace and the boots are my sister's. She no longer wears the boots so she gave them to me. I like them because they're quite comfortable yet stylish.

Modern Chic

Hope everyone had a happy new year!! 2013 is full of new beginning for me with a new job in a new city. I'm a bit scared, but also anxious about it. I'll definitely be sad leaving all my family and close friends behind. Hopefully, I will be able to learn more and be more independent. I'm actually more excited about getting my own apartment and decorating everything! I'll definitely be doing more arts and crafts since I won't have many distractions.

I was delightfully surprised when I found this blazer in the clearance section at Forever 21. I examined it carefully for any markings or holes, but found none. The tan accents add a little flare to this black blazer. It's quite hard for me to find a blazer that looks good on me. I prefer short blazers with a more casual look. This one can go both ways. Unitentionally, I'm all decked out in Forever 21 attire!
