Many people ask me what kind of style I have? To be honest, I dont really have one. Im not one to settle for a particular look because I feel the need to switch things up, break everything apart and experiment whatever is being thrown at me. Some label me as a hipster because I wear vintage/trendy clothing + riding a fixed bike, which I take no offense in since they probably don't know me that well. Others say Im a fashionista and I just take it as compliment.
Most days, I dress casually with just tees and denim shorts because of my bike commute to school, but to spice up my mundane life, I like to dress up a bit. If I could, I would glam it to school but itd be difficult to manage because you'll never know when you'll derp it until you realize your skirt is caught in between the spokes or the chain. I have biked with dresses before and arrived safely to classes, but it made me feel self-conscious. I always worry about the length being too short that could potentially expose the secret areas. Im sure some gals would know but I tend to forget, to all the ladies out there who bike with skirts or dresses, itd be ideal to wear shorts underneath. Just throwing it out there :)
Anyways, in this particular occasion, my pin up girl look is completed by a blue wire headband and a floral cutout sundress. What's your style or your go-to outfit?

I'm not so sure why my cycling team is doing the silly prom pose, but this will probably be the last time we will ever do that ridiculous pose together. A few members of the team graduated this past week and some of us are going separate ways to pursue a higher education or career, so it only made sense that we all reunite once again to do a team photo shoot. Since I don't own the newest edition of this year's jersey and bib, I had to borrow one of my fellow teammate's kit. And as you can tell, the jersey looks a tad loose on me and the squiggly line on the sleeve looks pretty prominent. Well, I hope I can make it to some of the team rides when I have the chance.
I miss riding with these guys already.

Shoes: Daisy Street
My friends and I celebrated my birthday at Slater's 50/50 which is a restaurant known for there ginormous half mixture of beef and bacon patty burger. I'm normally not a fan of bacon but decided to ordered there infamous 3/4pound 50/50 burger anyway. Turned out to be unbearable for me as there were too many substance and the surface of the patty was slightly burnt. All in all, I had a great time enjoying the day with my closest friends.

Dress: Free People
Graduation is approaching and I'm not sure if this is something that I am looking forward to. Life actually begins now where I'll be facing new challenges and unexpected shenanigans. To be honest, I actually enjoyed going to school never mind the group presentation and countless of poorly written essays I've submitted and college has given me opportunities to learn to express myself and to meet crazy but interesting oddballs. Speaking of which, life has'nt been kind to me because I am still unemployed. Its rather difficult getting a job or even landing an interview these troubling days. Just need to keep my mind focused on my career. On a positive note, I am grateful for receiving grants that fully covered all four years of college and not having to worry about student loans. So long, UCR.

Felt hats have been my latest obsession and a couple of these babies has been added to my latest hat collection.
Summer is almost here and I cant wait to wear them everyday.

You and I both know that you're not one for grand gestures, but rather particular about the food we eat, so here we are, celebrating your magical birthday at The Boiling Crab at last. Nothing magnificent, just how you like it - enjoying every special moment with some of your closest friends and drinking spiked coke and beer ;p
I've pretty much wrote you the same thing over and over again for the last 4 birthday cards, so I thought I'd tweek a little and send this message both digitally and in a hard copy. I like how simple you are, but at the same time unmasking different layers of distinctive personalities during the most vulnerable and happiest times of our lives. That is how I know that you are always true to yourself and that's a trait that most people dont have which is why love that part of you. I appreciate the times when you're there for me and I'm thankful for your support as well as bringing out the positivity in life. Thank you for being an awesome boyfriend and a fantastic friend. Happy Birthday Henry!
Present-Still Going Strong
For the past 21 years of my life, my mom has been taking care of me and providing for me, but last Sunday was her day to shine. I've been mindful of how grateful I am for my sweet mama and not to take her for granted. Being a mom is one of the hardest jobs out there and I truly appreciate your efforts. Thank you for putting up with all my nonsense for the past 2 decades. I hope you enjoyed my company on Mother's Day. Stay healthy and happy :)
