Paris, France 2014 :: Palace of Versailles, Food, & Final Thoughts

I'm finally getting around to posting more about my time in Europe!

My favorite time in France was definitely my visit to the Palace of Versailles. There's simply nothing like it and the whole place was stunning. If there's a place you must see when visiting France, it's definitely here! I'm not much for art and tourist spots but this would've been the exception. There's something for everyone to appreciate and enjoy.

Review :: Barbie G&G Natural 3 Tone Hazel


Today's review is for Barbie G&G Natural 3-Tone Hazel that I've been wearing a lot recently. I usually choose lenses that are gray or brown but I thought I'd twist it up a little bit with hazel. For those that don't know, hazel eye color is almost like a mix between brown and green.

Rienda & Lilidia Happy Bag Fukubukuro Reveal

This post is a little late since fukubukuros went on sale last month but better late than never! I ran into some issues with Tenso that delayed my package. :( Anyway...

For those who don't know, Fukubukuro are lucky bags (also called happy bags) sold in various stores in Japan around New Years. These lucky bags are usually filled with mystery items retailing for much more than the price of the bag. For example, I bought a Rienda bag for 10,500yen ($91USD) but the items retail for more than $400 each.

Japan Trip 2013 :: Shibuya 109 w/ Tricia & Silvia

Backtracking to my Japan trip posts. I looked so different!!!

It just so happened that my friend Tricia & her boyfriend Frank had scheduled their trip to Japan around the same time I did! We hadn't seen each other in over 2 years but somehow managed to meet up in another country! We also met up with Silvia and hung out around Shibuya.

Shopping with other girls in a foreign country definitely makes all the difference! My boyfriend sucks with clothing advice so just having a girl to give me a 2nd opinion was wonderful (and bad for my wallet). Also, Frank spoke Japanese and knew the area well so he showed us around to some pretty good eats at places we never would've tried otherwise. :) I think being with either a native or someone who spoke Japanese definitely made things a lot easier.

This is pretty much how our day went:
Meet >> Shibuya 109 shopping >> Eat >> Mugiwara (One Piece) Store >> Shop at Shibuya 109 some more >> Purikura >> Eat

Outfit 17 :: Aquatic Ventures

Last weekend I paid of visit to Monterey, California since my sister had free passes to Monterey Bay Aquarium. It was such a great day to go since the weather was simply AMAZING. It was nice and warm with a slight breeze. It almost felt like summer!

Honestly, I felt a little overdressed since I didn't expect it to be warm! A little part of me wishes that I just wore shorts and sandals but I really liked my outfit that day anyhow. :) rienda, emsexcite, michael antonio, ootd
