Busy busy!

I've been so busy lately!! I just finished my rotation in Baltimore and now I'm working in DC! My first 2 days of work have been busy due to the horrible commute, pretty much waking up at 5 AM and getting home at 6 PM. But luckily this is another short week for me, tomorrow I'm off to my favorite city, San Fran till Saturday! Whoo hoo!! Not all pleasure, have an interview, but still, I cannot wait to get there!

In between that I got a few days off which was filled with lots of DC fun with my cousin who is a current DC-er and my other cousin from SF to celebrate her 25th bday! We had the most amazing food ever- pure decadence for 4 days. Loved the restaurant Zaytinya, had some great sushi, and a cute brunch at the Old Tabbard Inn. Plus we also got to go to the Eastern Market..I adore farmer's markets!

Here are some pictures from our DC adventure :)

Tory Burch Sunnies

Classic Cat Eye Sunglasses $150

Tory Burch came out with a new line of sunglass eye wear to add to her brand. I started recently noticing displays of her sunglasses at The Sunglass Hut at the mall, which made me delve a little more into her brand. I know she is famous for those ballet flats, but I was interested in seeing what designs she would bring for the eyewear line. This partnership with Luxottica Group is predicted to generate $30 million dollars in sales. Her inspiration is said to come from Holly wood icons, James Dean, Peter Fonda, and Faye Dunaway, as well as her parents' trips to Greece, Istanbul, and Morocco in the 60's, 70's and 80's. I love her modern twist on these retro styles.

Here are my picks for some nice new sunnies once the weather gets nice, which isn't happening anytime soon in the D.C. area since we've received an overabundance of snow, way enough to last years! Which style is your fave?

I like how they're different shapes, fun colors, a little twist on some classic styles. What do you think? Would you wear them?

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy V-day Everyone!

I had a low key vday this yr plus its also Chinese New Year so actually quite a lot of family time, red envelopes and tons of food!

I decided to make a valentine for my bf and a co worker (she told me that we could be valentines this yr) so I thought it would be nice to do a home-made thing and try my creative side (which is like none!). I had a bunch of scrap booking paper that I used plus to keep it interesting I added in a lil eye-creativity inside the card. I actually didn't give these cards to the respective owners yet so hopefully they won't read it here!

As I was writing this post, I was just thinking, I didn't receive anything for Valentine's day... not that it really matters, but then my mom comes into my room and gives me a little heart shaped Godiva chocolate and says "Here's a sweet for my sweetie!" She is too cute and that actually made me really happy considering I'm having a little of an off day!

I wanna hear what everyone did for Vday! Kept it low key? Went to a lil fancy dinner? Had some girl time? Any gifts? Well I do hope everyone had a fabulous day regardless of how you celebrated!

P.S. Read my Vday holiday dress picks at Fashion Court

True Blood

Vampires are all the rage now especially since the whole Twillight craze. I never got into Twillight b/c of all the hype and I just felt I couldn't buy into it. My cousin, however, got me ADDICTED to True Blood.

True Blood is based on the Southern Vampire/Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. It is about a telepathic waitress named Sookie Stackhouse who lives in small town, Bon Temps, Louisiana, who falls in love with a vampire, Bill Compton. Vampires have "come out of the coffin" and now live in co-existence with humans. The Japanese have created synthetic blood, which allows them to live off instead of feeding off of Humans. Although not all vampires have decided to "mainstream" as Bill, which means living peacefully with humans, this series takes you through Sookie's adventures with Bill, the Vampire World, and other crazy creatures of the world.

It sounds really crazy, but I absolutely loved the first season of this show! Some scenes are a little graphic definitely in the second season (which of course never as good as the 1st), but its also HBO, so they def. don't censor like prime time t.v. Anna Paquin plays Sookie Stackhouse, Bill Compton is played by Stephen Moyer, and they have incredible chemistry on-screen together! I like how Sookie's character is a strong girl who is willing to fend for herself, her family and friends. Sookie's brother (Ryan Kwanten) has his hands full with various women, but has a good heart. Her bestfriend Tara (Rutina Wesley) is a hard, sarcastic girl, who works with her at the Bar, owned by Sam (Sam Trammell), who is also in love with Sookie.

I would def recommend the show if you're in for something a little different, and def if you like vampires!

This is a perfect time to start the series if you guys are trapped in SNOW like us in the D.C./Baltimore area!
