Lacey Daisy

    I can safely say that I have a very strong obsession with having too many stripes and laces in my wardrobe choices.  This shirt by Banana Republic was no exception, I mean come it was on sale, so i had to buy.  I think it’s the fact that the texture automatically makes an outfit classy and that much more put together.  The heels I am currently obsessed with they are by Kurt Geiger and they were the first items in my closet that I splurged in.  Smartly splurged though, I am all about a bargain deal. Here is the background story: Ladies and gents.  If you love everything fashion then you must get these two apps one is Haute Look and the other Nordstrom Rack.  Let me tell you every day they have new sales( 30, %, 50%,60% off sales…oh yeah) going on from designers all over the world. Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade, Chloe, etc.  Go check it out! that is where I got my glorious heels.  Lets just say I am in …

The Forest Nymph

 I spent the majority of the time frolicking in this forest during our vacation.  It had the perfect scenic view full life and beauty.  It over looked the bluest ocean that I had ever seen before nothing compares to how peaceful I felt that day. I looked to my right and there where these acres of mighty green trees.  I felt like a mythical creature running and exploring this beautiful location.  The beauty of this is the location felt like a hidden gem. There was nobody around to enjoy this place and what it had to offer.  I was ready to witness the sun set to explore a new day.

Gloomy Roadtrips

    During the weekend my boyfriend and I decided to spontaneously take a small road trip to Hearst Castle again.  We just love taking trips it takes us away from normality into our own little world.  As suppose to last time the weather was very cold and foggy it gave the Castle I different look I focused more on photographing the location its just so beautiful.  Hearst Castle like last time left me dreaming of another era.

Rainy Days

Walking in the City on a rainy day is a reminder of how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful city.  Its full of mystery and adventure in each corner.  I love how the clouds cascade around the buildings and most importantly how the air feels after a rainy day it feels like a needed detox.  It is a great way to start a new refreshing week. Happy Monday everybody! XOXO Charms of Penny

Birthday Doll

It is finally here the big twenty-five.  As a girl in high school I would envision how I wanted my life to be.  I thought that the perfect age to do everything was at that age.  I imagined I would already have traveled, have had my degree, and be married to my high school sweat-heart.  Basically everything would fall into place when I turned the two five. Boy was I wrong! At twenty four I started realizing that it was harder than I thought and I started to work on it. Twenty-five will definitely be my best year yet! It will be full of amazing adventures, glitter, and pizzazz. It’s funny how time truly flies so fast.   I created unrealistic expectations for myself when I was younger and at twenty-five I am now seeing that if I work for what I want correctly and consistently everything WILL fall into place.   I have learned so much since I was eighteen and I know there’s is still a lot of learning to do.  I can not …

Yellow Bow

Have you ever had an item of clothing that you’ve had for long time and just can’t seem to let go? Thats what I’m going through more than ever now.  I call it deniably-hoarding. I see all my items of clothing as a treasure, like a hunter catching its “prize” I too hang my clothing in a specific way: color coordinating, texture season.  All my items have been bought from the local Forever 21 to small unknown boutiques, and my favorite Thrift stores.  Its my world, at the end I want to be able to say “I’ve Hoarded the World.”  Each single item of clothing in this outfit is 3 or more years old and my gorgeous Oxfords are the first big fashion brand that I have owned…they call him Marc Jacobs.

Pumpkin Patchin’

Halloween is almost here literally its tomorrow! For me honestly I have not been feeling in the spirit of halloween.  One of the main reasons is because of this semesters schedule.  Going to the pumpkin patch of course uplifted my spirit of Halloween. I love seeing all the little ones dressed up in their costumes and them just enjoying the time with their family.  One of the main reasons I look forward to Halloween is becasue I get to be extra creative as far as my costume goes.  DYI is the way to go for me, there nothing more challenging then thinking of a creative costume and disguissing myself as someone else for fun!!  I hope you all get to enjoy Halloween.  I can’t wait to snuggle on with Penny and watch Hocus Pocus with a big bowl of popcorn.

La Cuesta Encantada

{Dress: Tj Maxx, Wedges: BCBG, Hat: Forever 21} This is the trip that literally took my breath away.  I’ll start by saying this: my photographs give no justice to the beauty of this location. The view of this estate was breath taking in one corner I was able to see the Pacific Ocean on the next I was able to see the mountains.  The castle was a place where all the top celebrities would come by invitation and stay a couple of days in this beautiful location, people like Charlie Chaplin and Walt Disney were some of the guest that were privileged to be invited  to the castle.  As I was walking in the castle I was thinking of how amazing it would have been to be one of Hearst’s esteemed guests.   I dressed the part with my little white dress, you know and try to make it a little bit more special.  The dress reminded me in a way to the Roman era, one of the many themes the Castle held. My love and …

Peonies in the City

{Skirt: Forever 21, Top: Forever 21, Watch Marc Jacobs, Heels: Target, Bag: made for me by a local artist} Hi  guys it has been a while that I have spoken to you and let me just start by saying it feels good to post something new to share with you all.  I just started my last semester in College and it has definitely been a crazy schedule.  One moment I am at work  (early in the AM) and the next I am school. Its hard to keep up with everything from my friends to family.  I know that all this struggles that I am facing in life will be worth it.   I am one step closer to receiving my AA degree in business  and that is literally talking, by the end of December I will be receiving my degree. The city.  So many beautiful things to say about it.  Since i was younger I viewed Down Town Los Angeles as a hidden treasure.  Every corner brings something different.  From the Disney Hall, the art …

Come One, Come All to the Carnival of Dreams!

{Dress: Guess, Sandals: Marshalls, Earrings: Lucky Brand, Sunglasses: Forever21} My Summer consist of many outdoor activities that I want to partake in before summer is long gone. I mean why not? I love getting in my car and driving to a new horizon and not knowing what to expect or what I’m going to see.  The OC Fair is the quintessential summer destination  that everyone has to go to.  I love the bright colors, the rides, and I can not forget the food …everything is fried! As soon as i smelled the sizzling Turkey legs, I said to myself this your cheat day so go wild. I had a blast and this to me was a reminder I should not take myself too seriously.  I don’t know what it was about the Fair maybe it was the amount of sugar I had that day(I had the best funnel cake Sunday), but my inner child sure had the time of her life. I set a quote for myself: When the going gets tough never to forget I was once …
