I remember, once upon a time, where I thought combat boots were for witches (blame it on one of my favorite Halloween movies, Hocus Pocus). I always thought that they were masculine and people would mistaken me to be in the military. Now I’m all about military looks. Camo, combat boots, olive green, love it all.
When I went to Vegas about a month or two ago, there was this amazing SA who helped me out at Steve Madden wearing these amaze boots. He said that they could barely hold them on the shelves (he was wearing women’s boots) and online was sold out. BUT ALAS! I found them.
I cannot wait to wear them. I have these ombre brown combats from SM already and they are so comfortable. I might have to invest on more colors and I love my new beanie. Olive green with leopard? Um.. Yes!
I’m a sucker for any new gadgets. Yes I watched a brief hour or so on the Sony announcement; Yes, I read Geek Sugar on occasion; And yes, I’m a sucker consumer who knows that technology changes rapidly but wants to buy everything, lol.
Besides being a tech-dork, I’m a K-drama addict. I recently watched a drama called, “I Miss You“. On that drama, there are these amazing headsets that the villain wears that looked like a huge diamond on every ear.
I found them a few days ago :O They’re called “Diamond Tears” and they are made by Monster and designed by one of my favorite music directors in the world, JYP!! No wonder they’re so pretty -____-
The pictures really do not do them any justice. They come in two colors, white and black. I thought that I picked up the black ones that have more of a purple diamond shine, but nope.. I was fooled by the box and got the white one. Which is totally fine because it has more of a blue to turquoise iridescent-look. They look so pretty. They’re not just pretty, the sound quality is also amazing.
My company gave me a free pair of Beats by Dr. Dre Solo HD headsets last year and I have to say, the Diamond Tears are way better, hands down.
I compared these two headsets and there is a pretty huge gap in sound. I’m not a master of headsets or music, but I know what pleases my ears. The DT’s (Diamond Tears) give clear and crisp lyrics and isn’t heavy on the base like other Beats have I’ve had. Although, it doesn’t bother me. Where the Beats makes the lyrics sound muffled which is one of the huge differences.
Pro’s of the DT:
- Looks pretty
- Sound clarity
- Light weight for something that looks heavy
- The attention to design. There are also diamonds on random areas.
- It comes with two ear jacks so you can put the cord on any side and if someone else wants to listen with their headset, they can plug their cable into your headset.
- Made by JYP (I love that guy)
- You have to be willing to spend $300 for these
- The carrying case that comes with it is just a pouch. The Beat’s case is far better and I am using it for my DTs.
- It comes with a wipe cloth and special spray for you to keep your DT’s shiny. But what happens when you run out?! It doesn’t show on the box that you could buy more. It also means that its prone to finger prints.
- The white pair could get dirty quick (depending on the user).
I’m back from Vegas and I’m happy to be home! I’m just sad because my vacation is officially over I had tons of fun at Vegas and the best part of it was the shopping and food! I was reunited with In and Out and tried some new places. I’m bummed that I haven’t gone to all the places I wanted to go, but I guess it can wait another 6-8 months
Chanel stud earrings. The CC have a leather material on a faint gold. Vegas has the best Neiman Marcus! Their NM over Hawaii’s any day!
Louis Vuitton Damier Graphite double-wrap bracelet.
My very first Rebecca Minkoff bag! Mini Mac love!
Tarnished gold bracelets from UO.
I found this awesome boutique in the Cosmopolitan hotel called DNA 2050. That is where I bought my Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac. They also carry various brands like Rag and Bone, G-Star, True Religion, etc. Basically, brands I like! I highly suggest checking them out.
Something that’s going to be on my next post
I have an obsession with bows, like many girls. Especially in the blogging world (don’t try to deny it!). I almost D I E D when I saw this top at Eden in Love‘s 1st birthday bash I’m actually wearing it backwards. I thought it looked much better with the zipper in the front.
WEARING: Metropark straw fedora and silver hoop earrings, Eden in Love bow tank and gold chain necklace, Michael Kors ceramic watch, F21 ivory cardigan, Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene “Eva” clutch and Monogram “Favourit” bow bracelet, Juicy Couture gold charm starter bracelet, Nordstrom gold ring w/ pink stone, True Religion “Joey” cut-off denim shorts and “Tippper” black sandals.
Let’s not forget about my Eden in Love haul! I’ve been trying to add more “pop” colors into my outfits.
Tan top with a ruffle back & red tank with an open back.
Mint green tank & bow tank.
Leather bow bracelets. Aren’t they adorable?!
Tan blazer (that I’ve been looking high-and-low for) from the GAP. Oh and this is the very first thing I’ve ever bought from the GAP. Just sayin
I just reached 80,000 hits and I think I should do a giveaway soon! I thought something along the lines of bows would be a great giveaway
Today was my fourth day of work and at this point.. I’m pooped. I spent most of my daylight at work and shopping (again). By the time I got home, I didn’t have anymore sunlight to take better pictures. So.. Here’s two taken from my iPhone.
What I’m wearing: F21 ivory cardigan (that I bought yesterday), F21 rose pink floral pin/brooch (that I also bought yesterday), tan rose brooch (I found it at my parents), Eden in Love gold chain necklace, F21 dusty rose slouch tee, Michael Kors white ceramic watch, Frankie B medium wash metallic “F” bootcut denim, Louis Vuitton x Steven Sprouse graffiti Speedy 30 in fushia, F21 gold stud heart earrings with rose stones (also bought yesterday) and Louis Vuitton Monogram Lovely Ballerina flats.
Remember about my current blazer obsession? I found this amazing knit blazer with removable hoodie from A|X. Pictures soon, promise. I also wanted to do a line-up of “What’s in my make-up bag?” and explain how/why I use the products that I use (since a lot of people have been asking me online and in person). And March is almost here! Do I need to make a new wish/check list? EEK!
After meeting with my realtor JKO and I decided to go shopping (and this is why I don’t like to be off with him on the same days). I had a pretty good shopping day. A few blogs ago, “A Blazed Obsession“, I went on for a whole blog about adding some blazers into my wardrobe and I successfully found two!
They look much better unbuttoned. And yes I am one of those people who buy things they like in all colors
I’m also pretty late on this HK brush set from Sephora. They have been sold out for so long that I finally got my hands on it.
Also, a few blogs ago I bought some nail polishes that I haven’t gotten around to using. I know it’s some random brand but I have to say, this random brand is better than OPI imo. This brand dries quickly, you only need to coat twice at most, and it doesn’t chip easily. It’s been a few days now and it’s still intact.
I wanted to take an “Outfit of the Day” picture, but the weather is pretty bad. I was lucky to even get a little sunlight for these pictures. Hopefully the weather is ok tomorrow! – EDIT: I just threw together my outfit on polyvore.
What I wore:
*Asterisk means that it’s a substitute picture and what I list is what I actually wore.
Michael Kors white ceramic watch.
Metropark gold hoop earrings.
Louis Vuitton Empriente Luminues in Infini.
*Eden in Love gold chain necklace with little flowers.
*American Rag printed floral tank.
Oliver Peoples “Donyale” sunglasses.

*Louis Vuitton White Multicolore Koala clasp cuff.
I got my present a while ago so I wore it on our date! Well, we go on dates all the time so valentines day isn’t so different from our every day
Cheesey Garlic Bread Twists with their homemade ranch dressing.
We did some errands and home shopping and ended our night eating dinner at Reyn’s Bar & Grill. There’s no pictures because we were so hungry we forgot :/ JKO and I hardly ever finish our meals. We would always have something to take home. This was the first time where we ate everything! We had Fresh Ahi Poke for an appetizer, Pulehu New York Strip Steak, Kobe Beef Loco Moco and Banana Lumpia. It was all delicious. I wasn’t dissapointed at anything at all. I definitely want to go back again! Hopefully this Saturday
Here’s some other food porn! This is what we ate at our dinner date (with my cousin, her husband and JKO!) at Yogur Story.
Philly Cheesesteak. Steak pieces, onions, mushrooms, bellpeppers and Cheezwhiz.
Dolce De Leche waffles. Pecan waffles, caramel sauce, pecans and a sautee’d banana.
It has been a great Valentines day with good friends, family and loved ones. I hope 2012′s Valentines is going to be as great. I hope everyones day was great as well. Any stories?
Remember how I told you I was feeling leopard? Here’s a piece that I recently bought along with the sheer leopard top I picked up the other day. I also got these new True Religion grey cargo style denim called “Krista“. The material is a stretchy denim and for those of you who know me in person, I have a small/no ass. That’s why in the first picture it looks like that, it’s my lack of ass. I have to wear a belt to make it not look like that. I do love them. They are incredibly comfortable and I love the cargo style pockets. JKO saw them and showed them to me So proud of him.
*DENIM TIP: Flap pocket denims are great for people who doesn’t have a derrière (like me). It gives a little umph in that area.
What I wore:
Metropark military jacket with ruffle sleeves.
Metropark silk pink leopard short-sleeved top with a zipper back.
Charlotte Russe tunic camisole (I live by these).
True Religion “Krista” grey denim cargo zipper skinny.
Tarina Tarantino skull rosary in black.
Oliver Peoples “Donyale” sunglasses in black.
Gucci Thwirl watch in silver.
Juicy Couture pink starter-charm bracelet.
Chanel c/z stud earrings.
Louis Vuitton Empriente Luminues in infini.
Steve Madden “Tippper” heel in black.
I also did more damage (right after buying my LV flats and bag). I bought the leopard top and True Religion “Krista” denim (see above) and these below..
Calvin Klein white with tan striped top.
Metropark leopard sheer long sleeve.
Eden in Love grey knit blazer.
MISSING: Frankie B stud “F” pocket denim and Eden in Love gunmetal necklace (I forgot to take a picture before I left to run errands today, I’ll take one later.)
Sephora has these NARS sets right now. I got the “Fashion Icon” set and I believe there are 2 others. It’s really the best bang for your buck. All four of these pieces for $59. Go and check them out! Also for the 100 point perk they have samples of Clinique’s Happy and “Fresh’s Citron De Vigne“. GO GET THEM BEFORE THEY ARE GONE!
This only happens once every blue moon because she likes to blame me for her spending so much money. It’s not my fault that she’s finding 10x more things when she’s with me than with someone else.
For me, I was more on a mission for flats. Since my job decided to not use any more uniforms (insert me jumping for joy just like Katherine Heigl)
I’ve decided to go all out. If you look at my FEBRUARY 2011 WANTS! post, you will see that I had those Prada bow flats that I wanted (or something similar) and I couldn’t find any that I completely loved. Instead I decided to find those Dr. Scholls fold out flats. On my way to finding those flats, I found these instead..
These Burberry flats are like wearing socks. They fit so comfortably and look so adorable on that they were a perfect fit for what I was looking for Oh and they fold too.
How many times have you switched your bag and always needed something that you left in the other bag? — It happens to me all the time. Especially with my vitamins, Aleve, hand sanitizer and hand lotion. So I told myself that it’s just easier if I just put a pack of all my necessities in each of my bags.
I found these awesome break-apart Hello Kitty and My Melody pill cases. I filled all of them and put them into each and every one of my bags. They are even small enough to put into my clutches.
See through ruffle top. The picture came out terrible (I took it at night) click here to see full-view.
It was a shopping success with my roommate. I’m still on my mission for awesome flats.
My roommate and I decided to go on a shopping adventure. This is what I wore for 8 1/2 hours. We went crazy. And I will post pictures of what I bought tomorrow. I’m beat :/
