Staples and Bandages

October Photoblog Challenge:

Day 6: Something I Dislike 

My poor little Monkey is stapled and bandaged. Apparently, my little thug got an infection from a cat fight wound. I hate seeing him like this, he is so unhappy!

Shoe of the Week: Balmain Crystal Studded Sandal

So these shoes are from one of Balmain's previous collections but I have always loved them. Their edgy and sexy structure makes them the perfect statement shoe. Use them to spice up a simple outfit or level out your fierceness from head to toe!

Shoe of the Week: Report 'Lena'

Hi everybody :) For this week's Shoe of the Week I picked a comfy looking shoe for Fall. This style is called Lena and it's by Report (one of my favorite shoe brands). This isn't the type of shoe I would normally blog about but I think it's perfect for fall in Southern California. We don't get a lot of rain here but it can get pretty cold. I am a flip flop kind of girl when it comes to my routine shoe. I don't like wearing tennis shoes because they make me feel somewhat claustrophobic. I know that sounds weird but I've been this way since I can remember. 
Anyway, these just looked really comfy and cute, and the material reminds me of fall/winter. I can't wear sandals in 50 degree weather so these are a nice alternative for me. They're easy to slip on and off and they aren't too tight or bulky. Plus, I am really liking the cute floral detail on the toes. This particular color is 10% off now, but they also come in black and a dark gray color which you can get for around $60. If you want to check them out click HERE
I want to thank everyone who reads my blog, it really means so much to me. :) I hope you all have a great Sunday!! I'll be back soon!

This is my good friend Beth. She's outgoing, smart, and a Libra! So, of course, I only thought it fitting to pick her for Day 2 of the October Photoblog Challenge. These are the top 5 reasons why I love/adore her: 

1. She's always smiling.

2. Her super positive attitude.

3. Her kind heart. She never judges.

4. She's gorgeous and isn't stuck up about it!

5. Nothing is ever boring with Beth. She makes everything fun! 

Love you, Beth!

My Birthday Dinner

Yesterday was my 24th birthday! I had to celebrate the right way, so I invited all my dearest friends...
and we headed to Katsuya in Hollywood for dinner.
The restaurant was pretty and dinner was great, but most of all I enjoyed the company of the people I love most. We all had such a fun time catching up and goofing around! I was even serenaded by some T-Pain looking character. It was hilarious and he did a really good job!

Hello, October!

That's right, it's officially Fall and the first day of October is here! I am welcoming both with open arms. I don't know what it is exactly, but when this time of year rolls around I always have more pep in my step. I love Fall: the cool temperatures, rainy days, and change in leaf colors! I find these characteristics refreshing and it rejuvenates my soul. This is my season. Libra season! Today is my birthday, and in honor of my birthday month I wanted to give my readers something more personal.
