Young and sweet..only 17

June 24, 1998. The day I was born. 2015 is the year that I turned the year of being a Dancing Queen as Abba would sing. "You are a Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only seventeen." (That's sounds cheesy.) 

This year's birthday, my mom decided to try something all of us haven't tried. Yup, my mother is our official party planner. She decided to have my birthday dinner at Sakura Shabu Shabu. It is a Japanese restaurant where you actually cooked your food in a pot! The cooking first before eating your food is so fun and exciting! At first, I was actually having a hard time because I'm not sure how to season my broth. The food was amazing. Everything was perfect! We will definitely go back to that restaurant.




For OOTN, I wore a red corset dress and my fancy necklace from Charlotte Russe. Nude heels from Cathy Jean and crown from Claire's. 





Truly a night to remember. I can't wait to start my year as a 17-year old. 


ICE CREAM is the word that we all scream for when it's summer time. To fight the summer wave, we digest a cold, sweet dessert. This calorie-dense, guilty pleasure, little scoops of heaven become our bestfriend this time of season. Every taste of it replenishes our happiness that the sun usually depleats from us. 



Luckily, I have discovered a new ice cream shop in town! CREAM. The cream can be a competition for MILK of Los Angeles. Their Ice Cream Cookie sandwich is amazing! What I like about it is that they give you a choice of what type of cookie sandwich you like. They have a vegan or gluten-free cookies. If you don't want a cookie they can make you a brownie ice cream sandwich. How awesome is that!


The Ice Cream Taco is just pure heaven. The taco is not actually an actual taco. It is made of hard, tasty waffles. They'll also give you three scoops of ice cream (your choice) and two toppings with your choice. For only, $4.99! 




Now, the actual ice cream. I might say the ice creams that I've ordered are pure delight. They are so good! Their salted caramel, cookies and creme, chocoholic, strawberry shortcake, and cookie dough flavored ice creams are scoops of heaven! 

I give this ice cream shop a thumbs up! A worthy of one's time and money.

Go Light

Summer finally begins. You know what that means? Heat waves are about to occur. Living mostly my whole life in Cali I already know how to bear and survive this treacherous heat. My advice: go neutral. It is all about the type of clothes you wear AND the color your actually put on your body. It is better to wear neutral and light colors in summer so that your clothes will reflect the sunlight rather than absorbing it. Refrain from wearing dark colors, this will make you feel warmer in a n already dreadful heat.

I know summer means tan skin and beachy hair. However, you guys still need to protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. Always wear sunscreen! To be more protected, wear a hat and sunglasses. Skin cancer is one of the popular cancers in the U.S. You don't want to regret it at the end. Just be cautious. 




In this style post, I wore a peach halter eyelash lace top and a navy shorts all from Forever 21. The neutral heels are from Cathy Jean.

Pink is the new black

I know I haven't posted anything for the past months (?) That is why I am so excited when Prom was coming. Because that means, less work and more time to blog! 

Looking for the perfect prom dress for my J/S Prom was such a pain in the buttocks! There are just so many gorgeous dresses! Also, very expensive! Most of the dresses that I kept on falling in love with were over $100, and there's no way I am spending that much money for a dress that I'm only going to wear for one night. 

It was just plain difficult to choose THE dress. Finding the perfect style, the perfect color, etc. 

Thank goodness! A week before Prom, we decided to go to Westminister mall because we've heard there's a windsor in that mall. There I've had find the PERFECT dress. It is just so gorgeous! Instantly, I fell in love with it. Even though, the dress is in a bright color and very simple. I love it. 

I wore a sparkly pink, sheath gown with a side slit. Simple but classy. The pink color gives the gown a youthful vibe to it since the gown is very form-fitting. I love this dress because it has the maturity because of the shape and style, and also it has the youthful aura because of the color and glitters. AND I only got it for $60!! Such a great deal right!

It doesn't matter how much the gown is. As long as you carry it with confidence and grace, any dress will look like an expensive one. It all depends on how one carry the clothes. Confidence is key!
