Goodbye 2010...

12.31.2010

Yup, we've devolved into clip art.

SO many things can happen in a year huh? This has sure been one whirlwind year of many unexpected surprises. I am so thankful for everything that has happened - whether good or bad - because it's just a way for life to give you a challenge and see how you can overcome it. Especially THANKS to you and all my followers who support my blog. I apologize for being distant lately but it's get pretty busy for me during the holidays. I rarely get the chance to go on the computer! haha

Anyways, hope you have a great New Year and be safe! :)


Sending love,

Hosted a Christmas dinner shindig for my gfs the other day. To keep it festive, I wore this red cutout dress (forgot to take pictures of it ~> super sexy) and a sequined black jacket.

Hope everyone had a great holiday season! :D

Singing Saturdays: Wizards in Winter

12.25.2010

THE COOLEST LIGHT SHOW EVER!!!! Although you can't really sing along because it's a song by the Trans Siberian orchestra, you will be amazed (if you haven't seen it before). I saw this video awhile back and it is so awesome I had to post it up. Incredibly talented whoever put up the lights-very very detailed!

Are you ready to see it???

And before the day ends, I want to wish you a happy and safe Christmas with your family and loved ones. Let's go and give everyone hugs! :)


happy holidays,

Thai Nakorn

12.24.2010




It's been awhile since I posted something on food huh? So I thought I'd share one of my fav Thai places: Thai Nakorn. There's a couple of them here in OC so if you like spicy Asian food, then definitely give this place a try.

Menu:
1. Tom yum soup with shrimp & coconut milk. You can also get it without coconut milk so it's more broth-like. I like this one in particular because it has shrimp and mushrooms. Mmmm
2. Thai nakorn spicy beef salad. It's kind of sour but most Asian salads are and I like that haha but I'll probably try a different one next time. Maybe something sweeter.
3. Thai nakorn bbq chicken. 1st time trying this and I really liked it. It's not your ordinary "bbq-style chicken". In fact, it doesn't even taste like bbq at all because they make it different here. And for those of you who love spicy, ask for their spicy/hot sauce (fish sauce with chopped peppers). It's really good to dip your chicken in to give it an extra kick.

Since it was just me & the bf eating we ordered the small bowl of soup and half a chicken. This was the perfect amount for the two of us.

Bon appetit!~!

Got my parka, now I'm good

12.19.2010




[parka: charlotte russe, top: f21, shorts: volcom, shoes: gifted from bakers]

One of my favorite winter purchases: this parka. Love the color. Love the fit. Love everything about it! In case you don't know, I'm trying my best to stay warm this winter (since I get cold easily) so I have invested in a lot of jackets & coats haha Especially since I have so many cold-weather trips coming up.

With less than a week 'til Christmas, I'm so excited to start wrapping presents. Call me crazy but I love doing the extravagant wrapping with a tier of presents wrapped in a big bow and everything! It's one of my favorite things to do that allows me to unleash my "creative side" haha I'll try to remember to take a picture this year and post it up later.


happy holidays,

Singing Saturdays: All I want for Christmas is you

12.18.2010

Definitely one of those I-have-to-hear-it-during-the-holidays-or-else kind of song. It always put me in a super happy mood and a great song to karaoke to. haha I love it even more because it's a version that Mariah Carey sings. I've gone to one of her concerts before and she has an amazing voice that people of all ages can appreciate. Someone who can sing eight octaves worth of notes is ultra talented in my book (she's got skills).


This clip is a live performance of Mariah Carey singing the song at Disneyland. There's nothing as incredible as watching something live.

When it was sunny

12.16.2010



[cardy/top: fashion store, shorts: volcom, belt: body central, bag: coach, glasses: fendi]

Now the "winter season" of California is slowing kicking in. Right before Christmas. :) The days are gradually becoming colder, which means my heater is turned on and time for double blankets at night. I don't do so well in the cold and literally need to walk around the house with a blanket. Maybe I should try that Snuggie thingy huh? Idk if it'd help...

Anyways, I forgot about these pics from when it was sunny in SoCal and thought I'd post them up. It's an easy on-the-go outfit that's perfect for school and running errands. That pretty much sums up what I've been doing lately. But now, I can officially say that I am DONE with school (for this semester) and can start enjoying the holidays. So looking forward to shopping for gifts today! Have you been naughty or nice? haha


happy holidays,

Singing Saturdays: Winter Wonderland

12.11.2010

This sure helps me get into the winter holiday mood. When I was little, I used to have this sing-along Disney VHS and that's where I first heard this song. Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Pluto, Goofy (the whole gang) would be singing it, which always made me smile. My sisters and I would watch it over and over and over again haha We're crazy huh? But it was so addicting (singing our hearts out) and the video had a bunch of other cool songs too (if you had it, you would know I'm not lying haha). I wonder where it is because I kind of want to watch it now. Hmmm... Sometimes there are certain childhood memories that you just can't let go. I have these 2 videos from when I was a kid (part of the Sylvanian Families collection) that I will randomly watch every couple years. It's one of my favorite childhood videos and it taught kids great moral lessons.

Enjoy the song:
YouTube

And I can't believe there's only 2 weeks left til Christmas. Been so busy with school I haven't had time to shop. I definitely need to chop chop on that. Hopefully I'll find some good stuff. Don't you hate it when you go to the mall and the stuff you want (or the perfect gift you're looking for) just happened to run out of stock before you came? Due to procrastination, this does occur to me occasionally so I'm going to switch it up this year and get my list done sooner. Let's all try to avoid the chaos at the mall this year. Win-win for everyone-no lines (better shopping experience) and you get what you want (therefore faster to shop for people). ;)


happy holidays,

Five project. Five finals. Five days.

This is one of my craziest week ever so I apologize for being MIA for most of this week. Tomorrow (Saturday) will be my last final for this week. BUT not done yet, I still have my last final next Wednesday. So, yes, that is correct: I am taking 6 classes. Did mention before that I love to learn new things? haha it's cuz I really do! It's the challenge that drives me.

Now that I am back and the semester's coming to an end, I will post up more outfit pics (and some of the projects that I have been working on) in the next couple of days so stay tuned. :)

Singing Saturdays: Last Christmas

12.04.2010

An oldie but a goodie. Even though it's kind of a sad song, I still love it. I remember first hearing this song when I was a kid. My family used to go to San Diego for the holidays and this song came on during one of the car rides. Now every time I hear it, I can remember singing along to it in the back seat with my sisters. Fond memories...

Does this song bring back any childhood memories for you? Hopefully good ones. And Happy December! Only a couple days left to do Christmas shopping. Eeksss
