.Sunshine Brunette.

F r e s h. Y e l l o w.---> My kinda style


Did you know the color yellow represents cheerfulness, intellect, energy, and joy? In many cases, the color Yellow is so vibrant & creates so much positive energy! When my co-worker asked me if I'd be interested in buying a yellow blazer from her that didn't fit the person she bought it for as a gift of course I said yes! The color yellow & me are Best Friends! I don't own that much yellow, but the pieces I do own are my favorite. My co-worker said she found this blazer at Macy's on sale for only $15. I paired this bright blazer with a jean top & white chiffon dress I recently purchased @ sfl.

Bought this necklace and matching earrings at Target for only $9 on sale! what a deal

S h o e s.

BCBG Generation Jewel Sandals. These sandals remind me of Jasmine from Aladdin for some reason (must be the jewels) Pretty little things...bought them 3 years ago but I've kept them in good condition since then.


Enjoyed my day off preparing for a camping trip we are having this weekend! So much to pack and remember about when going camping...mosquito spray, lanterns, camping stove, paper plates and cups, etc...! I'm looking forward to a weekend of fun in the sun at the lake!

.Coral Simplicity.

The color "Coral" always catches the eyes of mine. It's not pink, nor is it orange. It is a combination of both pink & orange. Perfect for Spring & Summer right? I found this Lovely Coral Maxi skirt at Target! Originally I was inspired to find a pink maxi skirt however, I could not find one! I went to about 5 different stores including Forever and could not find just a simple pink maxi skirt. Of course when I make a trip to Target just to pick up something for the house (like toothpaste) I casually make my way to the apparel and what do I find? This gorgeous coral skirt! All this time i'm looking everywhere in town and it was just a few miles away from my home :) Yes I was a happy camper. I even snatched this fierce gold/black belt at Forever for only $8.

In case you have not noticed yet, but Target is my favorite store :) lol Really this store is great and when their items go on sale it is even better. I posted this on IG a few days ago. Spotted this wristlet on sale for only 5$! haha it was mine.

About one month ago I pre-ordered the gorgeous J Crew inspired necklace from Sabrina Box on Etsy. I'm anxiously waiting :( I know this necklace is very trendy this season and very popular. I HOPE it is delivered this week! I can't wait any!

Beautiful right!?

I also have wonderful news! I made the decision to go back to school and complete my degree in Apparel & Marketing Design. I discovered I only have 24 units LEFT to complete the receive my degree. I am determined to have my degree by the end of fall 2014. I'm so ecstatic about this decision! I'm mentally preparing myself for what I will have to endure (studying, test, commitment!) I start in August, just a few months away! I'm ready for this! No matter what, I must stay motivated and determined. Once I have my degree, it will open more opportunities for me to succeed in what I'm most passionate about...FASHION :)

.Race to Paradise.

Imagine a place with no cancer. No Breast Cancer. A place with no pain or sadness. Sounds a lot like Paradise right? This is exactly what I imagined when I ran the 5k run, race for a cure yesterday. I ran this race for my mom and all those who are affected by Breast Cancer. Experiencing the feeling of a loved one who's been diagnosed with cancer is not easy. It can be physically, mentally, and emotionally draining depending on your role to the loved one. I cannot even imagine what it must feel like to be the fighter (the cancer patient). There are so many procedures my mom has endured in the past 9 months it's overwhelming to keep up with at times. And the truth is, no one prepares us for cancer. Another reason I participated in this event was for the awareness. I know it seems the pink ribbon or quotes like "Fight against Breast Cancer" are so often in front of us but do we really know about it? Do we know what causes it? Do we know what the procedures consist of when diagnosed? Such as Chemotherapy or radiation? What about the side effects? Unfortunately the answer is no in most cases. I've learned a lot about Breast Cancer and I'm still learning. Recently I learned it can strike at a very young age. A close friend of my was diagnosed at age 21. She is now 23 and the strongest young lady I know. Do you have a loved one who is a warrior against breast cancer? If not, or if so, it's time to start educating ourselves on this. I have faith and hope for my mom. The most important thing is to stay strong and know you are not alone in the fight against Breast Cancer.

My Boyfriend Jason and me before the race. He's so supportive. I love him to pieces.

All the people ready to race for a cure!

Getting some motivation from the local cheerleaders

Racing in Paradise!

Jason's dad is a fighter of prostate cancer. He ran in celebration of his dad :)

My mom and me during the first week I was born! :)

I LOVE you mom! :) <3<3
