brother's beanie, cardigan from nordstrom rack, boots from saks fifth avenue off 5th, marc by marc jacobs classic q francesca bag, zara blouse and leggings

Random photos since the last post. Finals ended last week and I am very excited for my GPA! It feels good to be satisfied with my GPA after all that hard work this semester. Six classes (5 of which are upper division courses) is no joke. After finals, I spent a weekend (I guess a day) in Dallas, Texas with my brother and one of my best friends and now I'm back in California eating, shopping, and spending time with family and friends. I'm pretty much loving life at the moment.

hello world

elizabeth and james lafayette sunglasses and jeffrey campbell foxy platforms

Hello bloggers! I just want you all to know that I haven't forgotten you all. I haven't had the time to "document" my everyday outfits since ideally, a collegiate hoodie and jeans is much more appropriate to wear to school when I have classes for nearly 12 hours a day. I truly believe that my readers deserve the best from me and not some mediocre posts for the sake of posting on my blog. Don't worry, I'll be back, better than ever (after all these darn exams, papers, and quizzes on economics, law, and the dreadful geology class that I need in order to graduate).

I have since gravitated towards clothes that is not only beautiful but worth my money AND something I need. I can vouch to you all that economics has changed me financially! Quality over quantity. Anyway, I'm on my way to graduation and that is my top priority at the moment so bear with me as I spend my free time studying for 6 classes. Again, I promise to blog as soon as I have the time :)

In other news, I just booked a flight to New York in January! Super excited :)

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

Pretty much missing the islands at the moment. School is super hectic and stressful at the moment. 6 classes, 4 days a week, it gets a bit tiring. It's okay, walking this spring and that's what I'm looking forward to. Oh! and another trip back to the islands next summer.

Hope you're all having a wonderful Labor Day!

lanikai beach

dress from nasty gal and urban outfitters hat

Named one of the best beaches in the world, Lanikai Beach on the island of O'ahu is absolutely amazing. I have always wanted to visit this beach but with the lack of transportation (well actually, quick transportation since a bus would take FOREVER) I purposely avoided a trip to Lanikai just to save time. This time around, we rented a car and finally took a trip. Breathtaking. Water so clear. Sand so soft. Amazing amazing beach.

maui photo diary

Hello Bloggers! I'm back after a week-long vacation in the beautiful islands of Hawai'i (specifically, Maui and O'ahu). Went to Maui with my boyfriend and my brother and then met my boyfriend's mother and brother in O'ahu a couple days later. It was our (bf, brother, and I) first time in Maui and we absolutely love the island! We were all so bummed that we only spent 3 days and 2 nights in Maui at the amazing Ritz-Carlton in Kapalua before we took off to O'ahu but we're definitely going back again in the near future!

Anyway, here are a few photos from the Maui portion of the trip:

  1. Deep Fried Spam Musubi
  2. Shave ice from Ululani's
  3. Photo from the Haleakala Summit
  4. Me at the summit
  5. More Haleakala
  6. Plumerias outside of Star Noodle
  7. Pork buns from Star Noodle
  8. Ritz-Carlton's pool from the lobby
  9. Mama's Fish House
  10. Dessert from Mama's Fish House
  11. Polynesian Black Pearl
  12. Waiting to eat breakfast outside of Gazebo Restaurant
  13. White chocolate macadamia nut pancakes
Will be posting the second half of the trip momentarily. Hope you guys are having a wonderful Thursday! For all my college bloggers who may have started Fall Semester already, hope everything is working out!

blouse from nasty gal, h&m skirt and wedges

A lot simpler than the previous outfit but that's because I wore this to school. Started my second summer school class on Monday (Human Sexuality) and it's going pretty okay. Not as challenging as my Finance class that ended last week (which I ended up with a B...darn but finance is pretty challenging so not so bad I guess) but I guess an easy A will do for now. Especially with microeconomic theory, macroeconomic theory, law and economics, managerial economics, business ethics, and geology lab for fall semester. Fall semester is going to be one heck of a semester.

If you're curious at all (while I'm on the subject about school) I guess I'll say a little about myself that some of you may or may not know. I am a Business Economics major and minoring in International Economics. After I graduate, I would like to work in the finance department for any fashion company (whether it be Barneys New York or Vogue yadda yadda). After about 5 or so years, I want to get pursue a Master of Business Administration and a law degree and eventually a doctorate. From there, I want to pursue a career as a financial analyst, forensic accountant, an economist, or work for the International Monetary Fund. So that's my career plan. Ideally, I would LOVE to own a boutique or get paid to travel but this is the safest route for me! People say do what you love and there's something satisfying about pursuing a career in economics/business/finance/accounting. I can't quite put my finger on it.

do whatever makes you happy

h&m x lanvin dress and h&m shoes

And I'm doing just that. Got all dressed up and had absolutely nowhere to go. Truth is, I've bought this dress months ago and have yet to wear it. Then I thought to myself, why wait to wear it when I can wear it now? So I pranced around in this poufy dress. It was fun. Guess I need to take more risks.

As my mom would always say, "You're not getting any younger."
