New Spring Hairstyle: Medium Brown with Honey Blonde Balayage


Hello everyone!!!  Spring is around the corner, I can feel it in the air! I know it’s still snowing in the middle March, but I want to maintain this positivity mood going by showing everyone my new spring hairstyle. Most my friends and family members know I can never stick with one hairstyle. I always have the itch to change my hair. I always had unique hair colors and hairstyles ever since I was 16 years old. I always like to incorporate my hair into my personal style and personality.


I’ve been working with my hairstylist, Danielle for about 2 years. She is absolutely amazing to work with my hair. I always call her a “magical wizard” because my hair transformations always come out spectacular.  I can always count on Danielle because she is never afraid to express her creativity. She can be opinionated and honest, but I love her for her honest feedback. She looks out for me. I met Danielle when she used to work for Noelle Salon in Westfarms Mall in Farmington, CT. Now she works at Salon Medusa in West Hartford, CT.


The before shot. My hair looks like a hot mess, it needed a lot of TLC. My highlights turned out brassy blonde and my ends were dried out and untamed. So I basically need a new hair makeover!!! and Danielle came to the rescue and saved my hair. She brought my hair back to life!!







This is the after shot. Danielle and I want to focus on dark brown hair and balayage highlights. They both compliment each other beautifully as proven this is an amazing hair color choice. I was stunned after the new hair transformation. The dark brown hair and the honey balayage highlights make my hair looks neutral.  The color choice matches great with my skin tone.

The undone waves




With the chocolate brown based mixed with the caramel highlights, this is absolutely fuzz-free a flattering look. The undone waves placed throughout also keep this looks modern and fresh!


Salon Medusa 

Rated The Best Hair Salon in West Hartford!!!




This salon is beauitful! When I first stepped into this salon, I was like “wow!” I felt very welcoming. I love the pop of color of red mixed in with the black. I love how the type of furnitures match with the wall colors. I love the wood panel floors and check out that chandelier above the ceiling! The customer service is above and beyond. Everyone was friendly and helpful. When I walked in the receptionist even ask me if I want a cup of tea or water. And of course, I said yes! I would recommend anyone who lives in Connecticut to check out Salon Medusa in West Hartford, CT.

The Perfect Coffee to Cocktail Ensemble: adding AUrate New York on the Plate!


(Courtesy of Designer)

I believe accessories and jewelry plays a major role when it comes to completing my whole outfit. The pieces can either make or break my wardrobe! For this summer, I found my next new obsession! I am in love with contemporary gold jewelries! If anyone is interested in affordable real gold jewelry, I know where to find some! I recently discovered a hip new jewelry brand that is known for their affordable contemporary gold jewelry…This brand is called AUrate New York!


(Courtesy of Designer)

I have to say AUrate has a beautiful collections of gold necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings. Their brand is about real women at different phases and moments in their lives. The founders designed three lines dedicating to three different types of girls or even the same girl during different times of the day, depending on what we want to think about it. The statement line is design for the fashion-forward type of girl who is either going out to a gala or some other social gatherings. The second line is the understated line, which is created for a girl who dresses very poised and very “Plain Jane”. And then the core line, which is the day to night. This core line is made for a girl who is constantly busy and on the go and will most likely wears her outfit from day to night. I am very inspired by these two bright women. They have introduce us a new way to think about jewelry, it’s a smarter model for a new generation of women. They had discovered fine jewelry at a fair price!


Who is AUrate New York?

AUrate New York offer contemporary yet timeless real gold jewelry made right here in New York City! “This trendy brand re-writes the rules by offering quality products at an honest price and empowering our community to give back to the world.”

 AUrate make fine jewelry that will last a lifetime. Their smaller and more timeless items are 18K and 14K gold. Their larger and stylish pieces are Vermeil / Gold plated over sterling silver.

Feeling Funky Today!!!

Today, I decided to pull out my black spiked sneaker wedges from Aldo. I haven’t worn these pairs in years! At first it was hard for me to put together an outfit because I was being indecisive with my style choices. I couldn’t set my mind up! I literally sat on my bed for half an hour , staring blank at my closet.. Finally! I decided what I want to wear for work today. To paired up my spiked wedges,  I picked up a casual black midi skirt from Forever21, a light grey sweater sleeves crop top from H&M, and my favorite black and red plaid shirt. 

For my makeup choices for today, I decided to go light on the makeup then accentuate my lips with  a pop of color and darken my eyebrows. I used Luxe Lip color from Bobbi Brown and the lip color was called “Parisian Red”. 

I was definitely feeling funky today. And since it is Friday.. why not have FUN! I hope you guys like my outfit inspiration!

Hello Everyone!!!! I’m BACKKKK!!!!

I know I know It has been a while since a wrote my latest post. I have to be honest I had a couple of step backs and also was going through some personal thing over the last year, which is why I haven’t been inspired to write. Don’t worry I am back now, since today is Chinese and Vietnamese New Year, why not start over? I want to move forward with my life and  start over with a fresh clean plate. My goal for this year is to discover and create new memories & adventures and find more muses and inspirations to write about.



I decided to do a collaboration with a good friend of mine, Kahlil Martinez. He is a terrific photographer. I’m always amazed and inspired by his work and talent.  We decided to set up a quick photo shoot something fashion based to overlap with my blog site. So we decided to do a city shoot in Downtown Hartford around Pratt street and City Hall. The inspirations behind the shoot was to take place somewhere outside in the city, in a urban setting and for my part was to pick out a few of outfits and style to showcase something relating to the “beginning of the winter season for fashion trend”. We wanted to stay with a solid theme so that I can write a few blogs about this shoot.



 I live in the Northeast and  sometime it can be difficult for me to find outfits to wear without freezing my butt when I walk outside in the freezing air and snow. There was a point of time where I used to get tired of seeing other girls wear tight-fitting crop tops and tight pencil skirts with slits. I want to show other fashion divas that there are other outfit options to look chic and sexy instead of wearing tight and revealing crop tops and pencil skirts with slits. So I decided to selected a couple of outfits to show ways how to make comfy and loose clothing can look chic and sexy for a perfect outfit of the day look. I want to give the idea that I can look fashionable or trendy without having to put a lot of thoughts and efforts because we were shooting around Hartford and the shoot fits with the theme. So I picked out a pair of my light-washed destroyed boyfriend jeans, my must have leopard faux fur vest, a white over-sized sweater, my boyfriend flannel button up, and a pair of my black suede zipped up booties. I decided to paired my red envelope clutch and neon clutch with my outfits and accessories with my gold bracelets and necklace and my gold Michael Kors watch.
