The week in rants, raves and randoms.

What I wore: Jeans, AE. Shirt, F21. Sandals, Payless. Necklace, D'Arte Connection (boutique).
I graffitied that wall to match my outfit. Just kidding.  
  • Sharing a bathroom between 4 adults for an entire week gets a bit awkward, if you know what I mean. 
  • My sweet, fringed, Birthday swimsuit top is back ordered until the end of June. Boo! I hate back orders. But when it finally arrives, I'm going to wear that thing 24/7, because it cost $68 and I can't believe I allowed myself to spend that much money on a tiny piece of fringed material. 
  • I still have a food baby in ma belly. Its name is ice cream. 
  • Last night, my Spring allergies swooped in and attacked me with a swift roundhouse kick to the face. I have a runny nose, congested ears and itchy eyes, and if I get congested enough that I lose my sense of taste, I'm going to straight up cry. 
  • I French-manicured my own nails this week, which I haven't done in ages. I have surgeon-like precision when it comes to things like this. Seriously, if I was better at science, I think I would have made an excellent brain surgeon (but I hear science is sort of important when it comes to being a doctor).
  • We tried Thai food for the first time this week and it was scrumptious. Except for the spring rolls and peanut butter sauce - those were gross (who knew that I could dislike something with peanut butter in the name?!). 
  • The Coffee Bean has two new ice blended coffee flavors: Mocha Mudslide and Cookies 'n Cream. I think I just fell in love with coffee all over again. 
  • Antioch mailed me a package with all of the paperwork for my first residency period in June. This going back to school thing is starting to feel awfully real now. I'm both excited and intimidated!
  • I don't usually wear much makeup to Girls on the Run practice, but yesterday we went straight from practice to the LA Artwalk (pictures from that later) so my face was all decked out. The MINUTE I walked into practice, the girls were like, "You're wearing a lot of makeup. You look really pretty today. You clean up really nicely," (that last one was from another coach). Here I was thinking I looked mostly the same, with or without makeup. Apparently, I was incorrect. Maybe I should stop going grocery shopping sans makeup...I may be frightening people. 
  • For the past couple of days, Yoshi has been constipated (I know, you're dying to hear about Yoshi's poop schedule, right?). This morning, he was constipated no more. So, while part of me was outside on the sidewalk in my jammies having a little party around the two piles that he'd just dropped in the grass, another part of me was thinking, "Crap. How am I going to pick all of this up with just one bag?" Dilemmas, my friends, dilemmas. 


  1. I love your rants, raves, and randoms! So funny! I love the chambray and red jeans combo!

  2. Beautiful outfit! I LOVE going to DTLA art walk so I can't wait to hear how you liked it. Also I'm kinda on the hunt for the perfect fringe bikini. xo

  3. Nice work with the self mani. If I even TRY to paint my nails it gets all over my hand. Literally entire hand.

  4. I love your look! Super cute outfit, and I need to buy a necklace like yours!

    PS: I wish I had a food baby called ice cream in my belly. Yum.

  5. Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog today to leave a comment about the Cadbury Cream Egg Cupcakes! I am totally hitting up all the clearance Easter candy items next year as well. Plus, I am pretty sure that you can shove any chocolate based Easter candy into a cupcake and it would be amazing! :)
    I am glad I found your blog... and those red pants (the whole outfit!) is fab!!!
    Great meeting you!


  6. You look so cute! Red skinny jeans are my favorite. :]

  7. You are so stinken cute! I love the red pants, sassy lady!

  8. haha ice-cream is my weakness! wish i had your manicure skills - i seem to have the opposite! Enjoy your weekend :)

  9. I bought a $70 swimsuit two years ago. Never wore it. Sad day. I clearly need to move to a beach.

    I can't believe you don't like spring rolls with peanut sauce!!! Oh man. I looveeeeee them! Was it spicy? My restaurant serves the sauce spicy. I can't get enough. But Thai food is so so so good! Craving, now. =]

    Happy weekend friend!

  10. Loving the outfit and I'm glad you tried Thai food, I love it too :)
    Brooke @ what2wear,

  11. So ummm this outfit is adorable! I love how it matches the background! Fabulous!


  12. Love the necklace! I hate comments like that about makeup and what not. Next time they will say "oh you look tired" if you aren't wearing makeup. Haha!

  13. Your letters cracked me up. I also hope that science is kinda important to doctors. If it's not you can totally work on my brain. I trust your precision! I allow myself one expensive swimsuit a year. Then I wear it all summer non-stop.

  14. Ca---ute!

    Try a different Thai place's spring rolls and peanut sauce... You have to find the right location ;) Also Thai tea? DA BOMB.

    Coffee Bean is the BEST!

  15. "I still have a food baby in ma belly. Its name is ice cream." - you and your ice cream.

    Listen, you have like 999 thousand comments it took me all day to scroll down to the bottom, gees;)

    P.S. Thai food virgin, you really should have came to me sooner, I would have told you how incredible it is. gees. gees. gees.

    I totally love your pants, and uhm, there is not a chance in hell that you have a food baby, you don't even have hips sista.

  16. I love Thai food! That outfit has inspired me by the way...I really want to wear a button up like that with a statement piece...It is so different than what I would normally do, but so chic!

  17. great blog, cheers! im following you:)

  18. Love this necklace! I chuckled at the makeup comment.

  21. What a fun blog! You are rockin' those skinnies! ! I'll just have to live vicariously through you because my fashion sense would scare your pug. Looking forward to reading more rants and raves!
