The Graduate

Dress: Betsy Johnson Heels: Steve Madden Dress: Nordstrom and top Heels: Sam Edelman To say I am proud of my accomplishment will be understating the undeniable joy I am feeling at this moment in time. Not only is this degree for my future, but being the first in the entire Tapia family to earn a degree, I share this triumph with them. We came to the United States with one change of clothes, leaving everything behind. All of us with their families living under one tiny roof, with the dream of a brighter future. I intend on carrying my family’s name, break barriers, and push myself to the unknown limit. Being a first generation Mexican immigrant and the oldest in my family receiving this degree was a MUST. It was something I had to prove to myself, and show my siblings they can achieve more than I could! I did this on my own and that is a thought which is engraved in my mind. All the rough nights of no sleep, studying at Denny’s till …

Greaser in Disguise

Sam Edelman: Over the Knee Boots With spring finally being here! I know it’s crazy! I am slowly and I mean sllooowwlllyy cleaning up my closet to get me ready for spring! With the lighter temperature dam right I still get away with wearing my fav Armani Exchange leather jacket and Sam Edelman over the knee boots.  I don’t know what it is, but something about these two items always makes a regular outfit feel like it is all of a sudden fashion forward with a bit of a bad ass attitude.  I mean how can I not these boots are made for strutting and that’s what I’m going to do!    

Bainbridge Island adventure

Zara: Coat Vince Camuto: boots Levis: Jeans  Loft: Sweater Our first day in Seattle we decided to visit the best little island my eyes have seen, Bainbridge.  Even though the amount of layers we wore couldn’t keep us warm, the adventure we had that day is one for the books.  We started our morning by hitting General Porpoise We started our morning by hitting General Porpoise Coffee and lets just say LA coffee shops and donuts have nothing on Seattle.  To this day I can still taste the Chocolate marshmallow donut and latte. Every bite was better than the last, honestly, I got a little sad when I gobbled my donut within a minute.  (I need to learn how to eat slow) See now I am craving one, but I have to stick to this daing healthy lifestyle. On to the day… We went to Ferrie from Seattle to Bainbridge! I felt like a child seeing the world for the very first time.  It was beautiful! The scenery of the entire city is unbelievable, I can see why they call this city Emerald City. …

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.

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 …

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 …
