Ladylike Button Up Top in Blush
As the fall season approaches, the cool breezes and chilly nights makes me opt for a little more fabric and a little less skin. I’m so excited to partner with ModCloth because I love exploring their endless wardrobe options, whether it’s in the form of fun prints, bold designs, classic looks, or simple closet staples. They believe that fashion is for every body which I think is a beautiful mindset to embrace.
I have a smaller frame and I usually have to settle for a size small in clothing which tends to fit me loosely. There’s always those awkward little details; like how the sides of a shirt are a little too big or the waist of a pair of jeans fits right but the thigh area doesn’t hug the way I want it to. While it’s not too much of a big deal, wouldn’t you agree that slipping into an article of clothing that feels like it’s perfectly made for your body gives you a jolt of excitement and happiness? I sure feel this way since it’s not often that it happens. ModCloth covers sizes XXS-4XL so it’s easy to find the perfect fit for all of your favorite pieces.
If you need a little inspo for updating your look, their mobile app has a “Fit For Me” feature which recommends items based on your size. Need a second opinion but your bff is not around? A friendly ModStylist can help you shop the site. And don’t forget to check out the Style Gallery to see real-life customers rockin’ their favorite ModCloth pieces.

I am ALWAYS on the hunt for good hair-care since I have a tendency to torture my hair until it screams and bursts out in color. No lie, maintaining colored hair is a lot of work. And the constant bleaching and dying takes a toll and dries out my hair tremendously.
Which is why I’m very happy to come across Uberliss, a bond sustainer and a much needed treatment for my weary locks. I’ve gotten my hair bleached and dyed a few days ago. While it looks good in photos, it’s quite damaged and coarse to the touch. After applying this treatment, I definitely noticed a HUGE improvement in the softness and malleability of my hair. It feels like I’ve been nursing it back to health for weeks when it’s only been one treatment. I have to say, I’m very impressed ^_~
This product has a really strange consistency, it’s gummy but not sticky, I’m almost unsure of how to describe it lol. But I will definitely continue to use this and see how much better my hair gets over time!

I don’t think I’ve ever woken up so early for a shoot. Technically I napped for one hour. Ron & Sang were team no sleep because they’re badasses and they don’t need sleep lol. We left at 2AM to catch the sunrise at the Glamis Sand Dunes. The weather was rainy on arrival at around 6AM so we all caught up on some much needed sleep for a few hours. I was honestly very concerned about the rain but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise since it eventually stopped. It smoothed over all the sand and removed the tire marks left by the ATV riders. Plus the overcast weather was perfect for lighting!
Oh the things we do for Instagram.. but in all honesty it’s just wonderful to find an excuse to go exploring with your friends and create some memories along the way. We stopped by Salton Sea on our way back, a place littered with the dead corpses of fishes everywhere. The neighborhood around that area was small and dilapidated but I found it fascinating look at and to wonder about the lives of its inhabitants. I’ve been in bigger cities all of my life so when I find myself around smaller communities, the vibe in the air just feels very different. Like there’s a mysterious charm of interconnection because escape is hard to find.
But here are some remnants of my quick little escape away from LA.

On some mornings your bed can feel like the fluffiest cloud in the world. Getting up and on with your day sounds like a ridiculous notion and the worst idea your mind could possibly conceive. Unfortunately most of my mornings are like that. Haha but live on we must.
So I’ve been switching up my daily routine a tad bit by incorporating a nice hot cup of Lyfe Tea Morning Blend shortly after I wake up. It gives me an extra boost of energy and lightens up my mood to get me ready for the day.
For my evening wind down I sip on the Detox tea blend. It provides the perfect calming after a busy day. I’ve also noticed that, with the help of these, my bloating has gone down significantly.
Lately I’ve been trying to become healthier, as well. I’m slowly inching towards my mid-20s and I’ve been noticing those tiny little changes in my body and stamina. Things that remind me how we can’t stay forever young. Sadly. So, along with adding Lyfe Tea to my diet, I’ve finally started making time to exercise more regularly.
I don’t know where life will go from this point on; But maybe I’ll just focus on these four things – exercise, eating right, drinking tea, and hustling hard 😉
