So recently, I was in Los Angeles, and discovered this insane local place in china town. Let me just start off with , if you ever come to L.A , please give this place a try! It was incredible. I ended up ordering Chicken and pork bao which is actually like a taco except a bun instead of a tortilla. The inside is sprinkled with green onions and peanuts. DONT JUDGE UNTIL YOU TRY! I also ordered there famous Taro fries and I was just in awe.

Organization At It’s Finest!

Lets face it! We are all NOT organized. Well maybe some of you try and stay organized but we all get super busy with our daily lives that when we get home that pile of clothes is haunting us . Ive had those days before, I’m either too busy or I am just living life !

Well not today! Today I want to share my tips on how to stay organized .

Here are my top 5 tips on staying organized!

  1. Put everything away as soon as you get home, none of us ever do that because we all get super carried away. But its time to at least try it! 
  2. Make your bed when you wake up, I hate this one and I completely suck at it but theres something about making my bed that gets me smiling in the morning.

3. Keep something to write with handy! It works! I always have a list of things I need to do especially with blogging, I constantly have new ideas !

4.Make a to-do list for the day, If you guys go to school just add it to your daily planner!

5. Keep your planner up-to-date. If you don’t have a planner , get one ASAP ;Target, Walmart etc they all have these planners to stay organized! That way your brain will be able to take a break.

Just A Dash Of Chic

Happy Mothers day ! I hope you are all enjoying today and getting to spend it with your loved ones. I decided to start showing you all more of my style and how I would normally pair things up. I hope this gives you all some inspiration and helps you piece your outfits together easily! I know I always have somewhat of a hard time pairing things up and I have those day where I literally have no clothes to wear. So I thought I’d create a blog post every week to and post some outfit pics of some of my favorite pieces. Also while I was doing this shoot , my adorable dog, hero wanted to be in all the pictures we were taking so he ended up modeling for you all! 💋

One of my main goals this year is just to travel, I’m making plans to travel in February, which I am too excited about but ever since I got was little all I remember wanting to do was explore! Also certain circumstances kind of pushed my plans back up just a little bit which means that now I have to wait to move out. Which is fine by me, as long as I do it and it also gives me a little bit of time to focus on vlogging and blogging. Ever since I’ve been super busy, i haven’t spent time with the people I love the most which of course is my family so I’m hoping to see them more often this year! I know I didn’t really do Blogging challenges this year , and since I barley started my youtube channel I didn’t really know what challenges came along with creating video content. But this year I’m so ready to get the hang of it! Take it from me, CONSISTENCY really is key. With this crazy hectic schedule I’m also going to be focusing some more time on myself! Especially what I eat, and how I stay fit. Don’t worry guys! I’ll let you know all the details! Also as a blogger, my photography has been getting better everyday and i’m so grateful! Which means I am so ready to take on some photography classes! And above all stay organized!

I hope you all enjoyed this blog post & got some great ideas for all of your New Years Resolutions! 

ps. My birthday was the 31st of Dec, I finally turned 21!

Whats In My Bag?!

 Also i am a super unorganized person as well as super busy. I’m always on the run, when I first picked up this bag I had just gotten a Michael Kor’s bag that was more of a satchel. Since i had a lot of things inside I never really had the time to organize that bag.And then every time I organized my bag it would become messy all over again!

Don’t get me wrong! It was perfect for me ,but sometimes having everything on one shoulder is a bit too much!

 This bag on the other hand! I love it, it’s a huge statement and its black which goes with everything! I bought this bag at Marshall’s it was around $39 by Steve Madden.

 As I said before I am a huge unorganized person lol (Trust me I’m working on it) . I usually wake up early in the morning and have my stuff ready to go and if I’m running late I usually just throw things into my bag all at once…#THESTRUGGLE 

Here of just a few of my essentials………..First up my wallet ,I am super simple when it comes to my wallet I always like to carry something small since I usually only have my I.D & Loose change on me

I got this pink wallet from AERO for $5 🙂

and of course I carry lotion, its a girl thing . Now lets talk about my keys…I’m basically a janitor with all those, I also wear glasses and I’m actually not that blind! My beats are a MUST , I usually walk to work after I park and listen to music on my way down (It relaxes me and gets me super ready for my day) currently my favorite song is “Starving” by Hailee Steinfield, Whats yours?

My pen is a must! to jot down all my blogging ideas and lets not go too into detail about the midol…

I also have this gorgeous handmade beauty bag! 

In my beauty bag, I usually have the perfume I’m currently wearing which in this case is Dolce & Gabbana “ROSA EXCELSA”.

I’m also a huge lip girl, I always have to be wearing a good nude lip color ( L’oreal Paris Julianne’s Nude)or lip gloss(I picked this one up at Victoria Secret a while back I don’t exactly remember it) and if I actually decide to play it up then I have a super cute red color (Elf’s Matte Lipstick “Wine”) last but not least my choice of lip exfoliator and a cute chapstick to go with it and before I put on some lipstick!

 Thanks guys! Hope you all have a super fun Thanksgiving dinner with your families tomorrow !! 🙂
