Birds Of the Same Feather














What I'm wearing: eShakti dress, Von Maur lace crochet top, ModDeals heels, Forever 21 purse & Kitsy Lane headband

Ahhh... summer. I can't believe June flew by so fast but when I think of summer, I always picture a dreamy wanderlust sense other than the beach trend. It might be scorching hot here in the valley area but that didn't stop me from wearing this dress. The creamy hue of this dress makes it so wearable during the hot season and the fabric gives enough breezy feeling that can last you throughout the day. I also adore the orange birds along the hemline of the skirt. It's so simple yet so witty that it melts my heart just by looking at it. This defines classy, dreamy, whimsical all rolled into one. If you noticed, I am wearing a lace top and no, it is not part of the dress - I wore it to cover my arms & give it a little more delightful touch.

Eshakti has tons of pretty dresses for any size and style. I remember browsing there for the first time and I can't decide which one I like! What I love about them is that they can customize the dresses according to your liking and preferences. There is absolutely nothing to worry about ordering online now for you will surely receive the right one!  Follow them on FacebookPinterest & Twitter to witness a daily dose of gorgeous dresses.

Out Of This World | Bday 2014










What I'm wearing: Chaps top (thrift find), ModCloth full midi skirt (brand name Rock Steady), Forever 21 purse, Charlotte Russe necklace and Forever 21 heels.

I decided to wear my recent purchased vintage and geeky full midi skirt from ModCloth for my birthday ever since my hubby suggested eating at Ruby's Diner. The restaurant has a 1940s feel so why not dress a little vintage. Because the skirt is the main focus, I made up my mind to wear just a black top to be low key and cinch the middle with a brown vintage belt. And from there, I paired it with both nude fleshy colored heels and purse, nothing flashy at all. I especially like this skirt because it channels the inner geek and me. Truly ModCloth has some unique and quirky fashion pieces to die for!

Also added in this post are more photos of the Robotic Dinosaur Museum and corresponding vlog will me on my Youtube vlog channel.

DIY Furniture Painting | Tassel Decor Ideas

I am jumping on the bandwagon of tassel home decors. After seeing upon thousands (exaggerating) of instagrammers and bloggers alike decorating their houses with whimsical tassel garlands, I am utterly convinced in putting one or two in my home too! Who couldn't resist such a pretty tassel on their wall? And no need to justify myself, I am getting one or DIY for myself if necessary! Today, I gathered a few inspirational pictures to help guide you in the decorating process. 

Plus below, you will see one of my projects in my place, bookcase painted in minty green. I'm transforming many furniture in like colors for our living room so allow me to show you a finished one. More will be painted and decorated in the future so it's safe to say that you have to follow me in Instagram for a quick posting! :)

MINTY GREEN BOOKCASE



A little bit of history:
This bookcase came in an icky white color and a weird backbone wood with many holes. Me and my hubby removed the back so that the white wall will just serve as a background color. I like to keep it bright and minimalist in that way. I did 3-4 coats using Glidden Minty Green purchased from Wal-Mart ($25 per gallon). The brush strokes gave it more character and I personally like it that way. In the future, I will nail the back but for now, I'm still trying to decide whether to paint it or to glue an eclectic wallpaper print on it.

Birthday Week Nails | Glitter Tip & Gold Dot Minimal Nail Design | Julep, Orly and Sation Brand









This week marks my birthday week so in honor, I wanted to do something simple with my nails - to still look fabulous even when doing chores! Honestly, I really can't deal with chores if my nails are long or elaborately designed so if it is minimal like these type, then I am more satisfied. Plus, I am really in the minimal phase right now with my life. Gone are the days where I like flashy colors but the 90's kid inside of me craves that once in a while. 

Most of you know that I am bipolar when it comes to nails so I am going to break down the brands I used. For my left hand I used Sation Love at  First Byte, the nude pink is amazing! Surprisingly opaque too and just gorgeous. I decided to do a gold glitter tip using Julep Oscar  for a finished minimal glam look. For my right hand, I used Orly Ole for the striking coral reminds me of summer then Julep Oscar for the gold dot since I don't have nail rhinestones right now. A couple of dabs of circle works its magic! Top coat used is Orly Sec  'N Dry.  

Have a fabulous summer week everyone! :)
