Oahu, Hawaii. It truly was an amazing first time experience ā€“ and Iā€™m so elated that I had the opportunity to spend it with my husband. Ā Iā€™m excited to go back again later on this year to see more sights, visit more family, and of course, steal a few more moments at Ala Moana (my favorite!).



26 was nothing short of amazing, but 27 — well, you can see see above it started off just right… šŸ™‚

Goodbye, 2010. Hello, 2011!

Before a write-up on here, I would often post a photo. For this post, it’s not required. Why? Because a photo — and even these words — cannot truly explain how 2010 was one of the most amazing years of my life. So many changes, stories, laughs, tears and everything in between. So many amazing people I’ve met, incredible feelings I’ve felt, places I’ve never thought I would visit, situations that became the changing points in my life. I can only hope — more so, expect — that this year will bring me more of that. I think we all can say the same in each other’s lives.

To you & yours — I wish you all a great 2011. šŸ™‚


Lately, I’ve been CRAZY about shirts that have heavy accents on the shoulders. Thanks to the good people at H&M, I came home with this lovely olive green and white striped shirt (and for only $12.98 — amazing steal!) with great shoulder accents. I love it!

Shadow Play

A pair of my favorite boots taken with the SLR. I’ve been playing around with the camera lately and with these brand new lace-ups, so it was only fitting that it would be introduced on here. Ever since last year, I was on a constant search for flat, brown lace-ups and I was so fortunate to find them last month when the season was just beginning. The inside of these beauties have plaid inside, so when I laid my eyes on them I knew they had to be bought. (more…)

A Strange Arrangement

It was an eventful Tuesday night, to say the least.

After missing his first show at the beginning of this year, I didn’t want to miss Mayer Hawthorne’s next performance in Portland — and that I didn’t. Thanks to the good people at Mazda2, both the Mister & I were provided with two VIP passes — and as you can see above, we had an amazing time. Tons of food, photo booth photos, t-shirts and meeting Mayer (good times!)

I’ve found myself playing ‘I Need You’ & ‘A Strange Arrangement’ repeatedly in the car. Excuse me while I go swoon some more.
