I decided to join the Connecticut Bloggers Collective group {CTbloggerbabes}. This group gives me the opportunity to meet and network with various bloggers and talents throughout Connecticut.  Last Sunday I was fortunate to be invited  to the “Sip and Shop” blogger event, hosted by Pearls and Plaid. This was my first time attending to this type of networking events  specifically for bloggers. I had an amazing time. I  didn’t want to leave. Pearls and Plaid is a small boutique in Old Saybrooke, CT. The boutique was super cute and cozy. I spend way too much money!! But don’t you worry I will come back soon!

[You can find Pearls & Plaid at 1330 Boston Post Rd, Old Saybrooke, CT 06475]

Omg it is already August?!?! I can’t believe we are half way through the summer.  I would like to share my top seven style of this summer. Like I mentioned before I don’t like to commit to one specific  style…With my personality have many. I love bold colors, wild prints, and pretty much anything whimsical. I like to wear anything that makes me feel confident and comfortable.


Top 7 styles of this summer

1.)

I found this one of kind lilac backless mini dress on sale for $17.99 at Urban Outfitters!!

This is a perfect summer dress. This is a transitional piece for almost any occasions. I can wear this during the day or night. I can wear this dress at a summer cookout/ BBQ or to a club for a girls night outing. My favorite part of this dress is the detailed back. When I wore this summer I felt sexy and confident. I also bought the same dress in black!


2.)

I began to wear more jumpsuits this summer. Like the one I wore above, I love the vibrant colors and the dreamy floral print.  Plus I felt so tall when I wore this jumpsuit! I found this lovely garment at Marshalls.


3.)

One of my favorite style for this summer is off the shoulder tops!! I’ve been going to the gym all summer long!  Now I can show off my hard work! I love exposing my shoulders and collar bones.

This blouse is by Socialite Clothing. I found this piece of gem at Nordstrom Rack during the Clear the Rack sale! I bought it for $12!! I love the dramatic ruffles 🙂

These off the shoulder tops are to die for! So freaking cute! I can wear these tops with anything. I could pair up my top with a pair of pants,a pair of shorts, or even a skirt.


4.)
This is one of my favorite style of this summer. I wore this outfit last week. It was a gloomy and chilly day. Ande definitely not a typical summer weather in Connecticut.


So I wore this lovely dusty pink Free People sweater to keep me warm and a pair of AG black skinny to add more drama to my look. Whole outfit under $60.


I added a light delicate blue bralette since the back of the sweater has a deep cut.


5.)

I love this style. This a-line dress cold shoulder dress cut to show a flash of shoulder and also elongate my legs. This jewel-neck shift dress makes a chic and simple addition to your closet.


All you need to do is accessories to complete your look. I usually like to add a bold color to my accessories.


6.)
I wore this outfit to work. I found my floral print skater skirt at Marshalls for $10. I found my red blouse at Nordstrom rack for $15. I tried to matched my hat with a pair of cognac booties.


7.)


I wore this outfit to a friend’s BBQ. I always like wearing stripes patterned shorts. I tried to matched my flowy top with my black and white shorts. This is a simple, but very chic look! This whole outfit is under $20.


 

Hope you all enjoy reading this post! I hope you all like my 7 styles and trends

Floral Print Jumpsuit


I never thought I could ever pull off wearing a jumpsuit. I’m only 5 feet tall! Like I said I never thought I could wear jumpsuits because I was afraid I was too short to wear these attires. Until now….Thank you for cropped jumpsuits!!! The lengths fits perfectly on me! (Yes I know I can shorten the pants length to make them cropped but I’m too lazy…) haha


(Style by me)

I found this gorgeous floral print jumpsuit at Marshalls. I love the flower patterns and the bright pink accent on this garment! It’s too cute!! Guess how much I bought them for?!?!!! This cost only $19.99!!! I want more of these jumpsuits! I’m  telling you guys Marshalls always have major deals, including on designers!!!  I’m pretty sure it’s not going to be my last trip to Marshall for this summer. It’s only the beginning. I can tell you all that I received many compliments when I  wore this jumpsuit to work.

My “Quarter Life Crisis” Story

This year I am 25 within five years I will be 30, which is pretty scary to think about! I don’t know if anyone experienced or dealt with “quarter life crisis”in their life, it really sucks! Let me break this down for you… what is “quarter life crisis”???…

IMG_1518

According to a recent study about emerging adults and young adults “somewhere between mid twenties and thirties, they might be experiencing a serious low point in their life. It could be a trial of confused identity, misguided purpose, awkward and hopeless transition.” And, if you’re anything like me, you feel lost, anxious, and panicked.


7 reasons why I might be experiencing  “quarter life crisis” right now…

IMG_1519

1.) This is a confusing time for me. I hate the feeling being stuck in one place and not moving forward to another. And that’s not normal to me! I feel very lost….

IMG_1520

2.) I don’t know what I want to do with my life. Some of my friends who are fresh out of college are fortunate to land their perfect job with full benefits and a solid career plans. For me, I haven’t find mine yet!!! I am concern I won’t succeed before I’m 30. I don’t like to compare myself to other people, but sometimes It’s difficult not to compare myself…I do understand competition is a part of nature and I can never avoid it..

3.) Most of My friends around me are either getting engaged, married or having a baby. For me, I am not engaged or getting married anytime soon. I am no where ready for marriage. Even though I do have my fairy tale dream wedding (sigggghhh)…. I am tired of people asking me when am I ever getting marry… Sometimes I wish everyone can back off and relax! Only time will come…

4.) Yes, I have a loving boyfriend who can always cheer me up….And don’t get me wrong  I love him and adore him, but sometimes it’s not enough. I need to have spent quality time with my girl friends.  I want to be able to share my feelings and experiences because only my “girl” friends can understand what I’m going through. Sometimes men don’t understand us “women” go through on a regular basis.  It’s hard to relate.

I find it difficult to make friends as an adult, especially with females!!!!. We are so catty!!! My circle of friends is getting smaller and smaller by the minute. It’s hard find friends trustworthy and loyal who I can depend on. Most of my friends have boyfriends and have their own priorities, sometime  I am afraid distance and time will drive friendships away without any explanations or reasons. Or Perhaps maybe my personality have change or we don’t share the same level of interests anymore …. Whatever Who knows ..

IMG_1521

5.) Do I want to stay in Connecticut for the rest of my life?! I have no idea! I have been living in Connecticut since I was 5 years old… I don’t know where I will be living in the next 5 years..  I would love to move to a different state. I don’t mind moving to Texas… Or I always want to live in New York or Boston, but I never got the nerve or courage to make it happen. Shoot… I’m 25 years old and I’m still living with my parents (sighhhh). Plus I’m not financially stable yet…

6.) I hate the facts as I get older, I get hit with more responsibility and with more responsibility usually leads to more bills…… so looks like I will be broke for life.

7.) Sometimes I have moments where I feel like I don’t give a fuck anymore. As in I want to give up or run away from reality. I’ve experienced my high moments and low moments. There were some moments where I felt anxious or angry at the strangest time… I felt like I’m going to blow up because I have a lot of things bottled up inside and all I want is to scream on the top of my lungs!  Or I dealt having random panick attacks  ( Don’t  worry I’m not depressed). I’m okay.

Sometime I have moments where I like to go with the flow, going on spontaneous things without having any thoughts and negative repercussions … I called this “yoloing”, which means I don’t care what other people think. And just “do  me” and keep moving forward.


The reason why I am writing this post about my experience with “quarter life crisis” is to share my story and also bring awareness about this social issue. I’m not trying to draw attention to myself.  Many millennial from the age 25 to 35  had either dealt with  “quarter life crisis” or currently experiencing it right now.  It is  common to feel confused or lost.

Hopefully this social struggle is only temporary. I will eventually find my strengths and push through my problems.

And please don’t you worry, you are not alone…. you shouldn’t feel lonely.

Motivation Monday 


I know the weekend flew by wayyyy to fast. And it’s time we all have to get back to our reality. But don’t forget this weekend is 4th of July weekend! So I do know majority of us will have a long four days weekend!!!

Here is a little encouragement and love from me to help cure the Monday blues that we are all having.  I hope you have a bless  and beautiful day. We all should appreciate for living another brand new day. Breathing in the fresh air that we’re all breathing. Having the opportunity to look around to our surroundings; gazing at the horizon, the flowers and birds in the sky, the clear blue sky and the people around us. We will never know with endless of opportunities that can happen to us in one day….All we need is to have hope! Remember we all can do whatever we want to do if we put our mind into. Don’t let negativity hinders us from reaching our goals and achievements. Including small goals too!  We do not need any negativity in our lives! And remember to push through and say

I CAN and I Will“!!!

12 Things You Didn’t know about Me…


I’m left handed and I’m double jointed

I hate broken promises…

I don’t like it when people who lie or try to deceive me for their advantage.

I love food… I still don’t know what is my favorite food. I still can’t make up my mind

I can beat anyone in a belching contest.. All I need is a can of soda 😂

I do not take confrontations well because I am very defensive with myself. Why you ask? Because growing up I was bullied…

I have many insecurities about myself sometimes I keep it in.

I do not share or express my emotions well. I tend to bottled everything in until I explode.

I love doing spontaneous things and adventures because I believe life is too short. I like to live in the moment, which sometimes can lead to consequences….(Yikes)

Sometimes I wish my mouth has a filter…because I tend to say what ever comes out of my mouth before thinking about it. I can’t help it, I’m very honest. ( so if I ever hurt anyones’ feeling with my words… I’m sorry I don’t mine to 😞

I hate the sound of crunching styrofoams and the sound of fork scratching on a plate.

I’m afraid of failures.
