Happy New Year to you all! Although we are literally only 2 days into the new year, I already feel like 2014 is going to be amazing! I am really excited to see what this year has in store.
Here are a few things I hope to do better this year.
Take chances – It’s so hard to get out of your comfort zone and do something different from your normal day to day routine, but taking a chance and doing something crazy can prove to have amazing results. You will probably have a blast doing it and even if you don’t, you will learn something new about yourself.
Get healthy – I will be the first to say, I LOVE food! Like, seriously. I always say I don’t eat to live, I live to eat. And unfortunately the healthy stuff doesn’t really tickle my fancy (I live for Umami Burger, Philz Coffee, and Nestle Chocolate Chip Cookies). But the earlier you start thinking about your health, the better. As a former track and field athlete, I know how diet and exercise can easily help improve your body and your mood. Little things like drinking more water, cutting out the 2am trips to McDonalds, and working out a couple times a week can easily get you on track to a healthy lifestyle.
Baby Steps, Baby Steps.
Travel – The older I get, the more my travel bug starts to itch. I want to go everywhere! Whether it’s discovering new cities in the US or traveling abroad, I cannot wait to see all that this world has to offer. Even if its just discovering new restaurants in your hometown or a new place to take photos or a new thrift shop to frequent, that feeling of a novel discovery can make your day, or even your entire year.
Make plans/goals & follow through with them – I’m all for a spontaneous adventure, but making plans and writing out goals gives our minds a blueprint that we can use to guide ourselves toward the right direction. The thought process alone helps you brainstorm what you want to accomplish. It can be for tomorrow or for 5 years from now. Simply taking that first step to write it down starts the process.
Carpe Diem – Seize the Day! We only have one life to live so we MUST make the most of it. Do not wait for anyone else to do what you wanna do. Like Nike, just do it! And have faith. Having faith in yourself and having faith in God can help you move mountains.

Wore this the first day I arrived on my vacation in New York.
New York is one of my favorite cities in the entire world. The fast pace, the boroughs, the fashion, everything about the place just makes me giddy. I was really fortunate, blessed, and altogether ecstatic to return once again. (And man did we make the most of it!)
I really love these shots! The easiness of the outfit contrasted with the busyness of the city in the background makes me swoon! (Photo cred goes to my sis)

Ready to mob the city!
Later that night I lived out my dream of meeting the queen herself, Rihanna! Seriously one of the best nights of my life! I can’t even explain to you how excited I was. We got to see her when she visited Greenhouse Club in NYC with her best friends Melissa and Leandra. I love them!
My sissy was lucky enough to get a pic with her before she jetted off! Lucky Duck!!!!! (How does she manage to look so perfect even off screen?! ….I think I am ever more obsessed now. She is undeniably the baddest)
Wore this to my sissies graduation party. I’ve known these girls since we are all in diapers!

super flash overload on these pics, my camera was actin up!
June definitely marks the start of graduation and wedding season, and of course graduation parties! One of my sissies had the privilege of graduation from my alma matter, UC Davis over the weekend so there was no doubt I had to go and support.
What I Wore:
I love the color of this dress! The blue is so electric! I also like how the zipper is long in the back.
I also love these black aviators. I have been looking for a “signature pair” of sunglasses and I found these at a random store in the mall.
