A Cheesecake Factory Production

February 29, 2012
Did you know that the Cheesecake Factory sells cupcakes? Apparently they do, and I had no idea until last week when I came home to a 4-pack of their red velvet cupcakes. Thanks Mom!

This Is Not a Fashion Blog

February 27, 2012
But if it were, all of my photos would be of my lovely cousin. We shot a few photographs on Saturday while testing out my brand new 35mm lens! There's nothing like an empty field and the sunset to create the perfect conditions for a mini photo shoot!

Sunday Morning, Rain is Falling

February 21, 2012
A couple of weekends ago, my cousin and I were supposed to head over to the Rose Bowl Flea Market for the first time. Unfortunately our plans were derailed by a little bit of early morning rain. By the time the sun came out, it was already too late to drive over to Pasadena. So instead, we decided to peruse the local swap meet!

New pair of sunglasses - $5.00
Half-priced F21 bracelet - $2.00
Eating my all-time favorite churro for breakfast - Priceless

I really should've taken more photos, but the churro got in the way {haha!}. But seriously, that place sells the most delicious churros! I clearly have my priorities in order, don't you think?

In the Midst of a Snowstorm

February 17, 2012

Two or three times a year, when the conditions are just right, snow falls in the lower elevations of the mountains behind my house. On Wednesday my cousin and I decided to make a spontaneous trip into the mountains, hoping to find a few inches of snow. Little did we know that we'd end up driving into a winter wonderland! Neither of us were properly dressed for the cold weather, so we were pretty much freezing the entire time lol. Nevertheless, it was still a fun way to spend the afternoon!

Sweets for my Sweet

February 15, 2012

I used the holiday as an excuse to make these yummy Pillsbury sugar cookies yesterday. But do you know
what I'm really excited for? The day after Valentine's Day, when all of the leftover chocolate goes on sale! I
think I'll be making a field trip over to Target later today haha.

High Time for Tea

February 13, 2012

Lately I've felt the need to practice more still life photography. A few days ago I found some of my mom's
old china and decided that they would make the perfect props for a quick photo shoot. Fun fact: That ring in
the third photo was given to me by my aunt almost a decade ago! It's one of my most cherished pieces of
jewelry. Anyways, I hope all of you have a lovely Valentine's Day tomorrow! Any holiday that promotes
the consumption of chocolate is a good day in my book! :)

Merely Sweets

February 11, 2012

There's nothing I love more than discovering new cupcake shops, and oh man is this a good one! Merely Sweets is a cute little dessert shop located in Downtown Brea. They sell all sorts of yummy desserts including cupcakes, macarons, and cake pops. But there was one item in particular that I just couldn't walk away from once I saw it: a Nutella cupcake. What can I say? It was simply delicious!

Things Got a Bit Rocky

More photos from my trip to Crystal Cove last week!                 

Origami Flowers

February 6, 2012


How cute are these origami flowers?          

They're the perfect decoration for my desk! And what's even better is that they're super easy to make! All you need is a single square piece of paper and this video. Ruche created a whole bouquet of these flowers for their Valentine's Day feature and as soon as I saw it, I knew that I had to make one for myself. Michael's and I are best friends these days lol.

Life at the Beach

February 3, 2012

Have you ever felt the need to just spontaneously go on an adventure? Well, that's what I've been feeling for the past month, which is why on Monday I drove down PCH to Crystal Cove, a beach that I've never been to before. Wow. That place is simply magical.

I'll be posting more photos next week.  :)
