I’ve known Annie for most of my life. She’s my best friend Catherine’s big sister, and she also used to be my babysitter. I’ve always looked up to Annie as a sort of big sister to me because I’m an only child (ya know, only child syndrome). I was so excited when she started a blog called Collective Passions. It’s such a beautiful site and is inspiring to see how it has been growing. Annie contacted me the other week and asked if I wanted to do a collab with her featuring Chloe and Isabel jewelry. I obviously was so thrilled I had to say yes! Not only am I obsessed with this new necklace, I’m even more excited about how the post turned out. Check out my featured post on her blog here!

PS: Shout out to my friend Briggy for taking these pictures of me on our way to brunch!

Last week I was fortunate enough to travel to Korea with my parents to visit family that I hadn’t seen in about eight years. On Tuesday, my parents and I traveled into Seoul to visit some family friends. Earlier that morning I had stopped by the store and picked up these AMAZING Stephane Christian sunglasses. I’m OBSESSED. Living in California has officially made me a sunglasses girl.

Later that day my dad dropped me off at Itaewon so that I could do a little shopping. There were street vendors as well as a bunch of different boutiques both Korean and American. I picked up a bunch of small cosmetic items which I will be doing a haul post shortly! I also got a delicious Green Tea Bubble Tea which was definitely the highlight of my day. It was fun to see all the different Korean stores and check out the brands that weren’t available in the States. I definitely wish I had more time to explore and shop. If you’re ever in Seoul, definitely take a walk in Itaewon…it’s a sight to see!

PS: This necklace I’m wearing was a safety hazard and almost didn’t get me through security. Luckily, I made it through with both myself and my necklace!

There’s something about hot pink that just instantly puts a smile on my face. That being said, when I found out there was a giant pink wall on Melrose, I just had to take a trip. Victoria, our friend Becca and I went for an impromptu photo shoot last weekend (see Vic’s post here!). Melrose is definitely one of my favorite streets in LA. Not only is it known for the 90210 spin-off, it’s also an amazing place for shopping and food. If you’re ever in the LA area definitely go check out this iconic spot at the Paul Smith store on Melrose.

We spent Thanksgiving weekend exploring the beautiful town of Coronado, a little island located across the bay from San Diego. North Beach is hands down the most gorgeous beach I have ever been to (and dog friendly!). You can see for miles and miles past the horizon. The water was even warm enough to go in, and considering the East Coast is covered in snow, that’s quite a feat. On our last day in Coronado, while we wandered down Orange Ave., we came across this cute little flower shop, so naturally we had an impromptu photoshoot. Overall, it was a great weekend filled with family, friends, and food! For those of you who have never been, I’d definitely recommend making the trip!
