Work appropriate costumes

When Halloween arrives I usually make two kinds of costume. The one that I wear at work and the other that I wear when I go out.

Even though I work at American Apparel I don’t really feel comfortable wearing certain things to work. Most girls don’t mind the cat calls or the stares but for me I don’t like that idea for work. Last year I was Wednesday Adams and everyone liked it. So as Halloween comes closer I like to narrow down my options on what I will be at work.

I know that many of you are on the same boat as I am so I decided to dedicate a post to work appropriate costumes.

Once upon a time, when people spent $75 on a plastic, cheap-looking Halloween costume from Party City, matching costumes were considered corny, nerdy, and eyeroll worthy. Now, in the year 2016, when people spend a lot of time creating their own costume and even more time searching for them on Pinterest, matching costumes are considered cute, fun, and often really creative. This is true for both couples and costumes and best friend costumes.:

Cut for a Cause

Ulta throws a hair event every October to bring awareness to Breast cancer. This year I decided to join in and get a $10 haircut from their Salon. I knew that this was going to be a crazy event, so I arrived an hour early.


Sure enough people started arriving quickly and before you knew it there was already a long line. When the doors finally opened at 11 AM I was the first one to get their hair cut. I wanted to cut off any split ends and add more texture into my hair. The stylist was so sweet she even offered to add in a pink hair extension.


After she worked her magic my hair felt nice and healthy again. I was so blown away by how much I had to pay for my haircut. Usually I pay about 30 to 35 dollars without tip so I was over the moon when I just paid 20 just for the haircut and hair extension. Personally it was a great day to pamper myself and donate to a charity all about Woman.


Happy October everyone!

A Day at Disneyland

What do you do when you are feeling stressed and life is just getting you down.

Well what I do is go to the happiest place on earth. I love going to Disneyland and enjoying all the magic behind the park. It honestly feels like once you entered the park all your problems just melt away.


I got the chance to go with my mom and sister. They are the best Disney crew around! What is shocking is that we went on Friday and we were able to get on eleven rides.


I even got to see Ariel as I was walking into the park. She was looked lovely that I had to take a quick picture of her with a little girl.

If you love to laugh at cheesy jokes and puns then the Jungle Cruise is perfect for you. We got on that as our first ride because the line was only 10 minutes long. But it was actually quicker than that.


When you go into Frontier Land you can see all the Mexican inspired Day of the Dead décor. I absolutely love it! This time when we visited this section we noticed that they were doing FREE face painting. So of course I made all of us wait in line. I liked that we did something new in the park that we usually never do.


Here is the final product. Personally I liked my sister and Mom’s skull better than mine so I had to take a close up of theirs.


My Mom loves the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters and she is always my competition. This time I was pretty forced and our photo showed it all.


Since it my favorite time of the year I always love seeing how Disney decorates their rides. One ride that gets my creative juices flowing is the Haunted Mansion. Every year they design a new gingerbread house and this one was speculator. The smell alone gets you excited for the cold fall weather that is on its way.

It was such a great way to relax and remind me what joy my family can bring me. I am extremely grateful for my Mom and sister.


My Original Chef

Many people would never guess that my boyfriend was the only one in our relationship that really knew how to cook. I was 20 years old when I met him and sometimes it shocks me how much I have learned from him. He is not just my boyfriend but my role model.

So as I watched him, I began to pick up some cooking skills. My skills improved significantly that my boyfriend stopped cooking. Now there are moments when I miss his cooking. As any good boyfriend would do on my birthday month, he surprised me with a meal.

There is a local Asian market called H Mart and it is the best place to go treat hunting. We found some delicious ribs there and decided to buy some and make it at home. So today I will be sharing how my boyfriend makes short ribs.


First you put in some oil, we used Canola oil. Once the pan is slightly warmed you slowly put in the meat.


We cooked each side for about 3 minutes each.


Once it has brown you want to take the meat to the cutting board and chop it into pieces.


Then throw it back into the pan until it is crispy.


When that is all done we get a spoonful of rice and enjoy them together.


Monday Motivation

It’s Finally October! Are you guys just as excited as I am!?!

This month is my birthday so like any other year I spend this whole month enjoying every single day. I plan on welcoming every day with a wonderful beginning by meditating.

Since the universe loves me so much I get to share my birthday with my friend Brittany, so I’m overjoyed that I get to spoil her.

Even though I live in California the fall weather hasn’t really caught up yet. So I’m looking forward to those cold fall days ahead. I know that this year has been the hardest for costume ideas so if you guys already know what you will be feel free to share. When Halloween comes closer I’ll share with you what I ended up deciding to dress up as.

So to welcome this amazing month here is the quote for the week!

Barneys, Bergdorf's, Bloomies, & Bendel's!:

Have a great Monday!

Meal Prep Time

Yesterday I decided to prep my lunch for the rest of the week.

When I was looking through Pinterest I found this recipe for Grilled Chicken and Veggie bowl.  Most of the ingredients I already had at home so I thought why not try it.


First I cut the three large boneless, skinless, chicken breast into smaller pieces. After that I stabbed them with a knife and got the mallet and tenderized the chicken breast.


After that I rubbed on the mixed spices of garlic salt, black pepper, salt, paprika, and grounded cumin.


I marinated the chicken overnight, I will admit that I made a mistake and didn’t read the instructions carefully. I should’ve added a lime to the marinate. Since I missed this step I just added after I cooked it.


The next morning I used my George Foreman grill to cook my chicken. I cook them for about 5 to 7 minutes depending on how thick the chicken piece was.


After that I served my bf and my lunch. The rest I put in the freezer for the rest of the week. To my surprise it was pretty tasty! Even my boyfriend loved his lunch. So the rest of the week is going to be very tasty. As for the side I just boiled some broccoli and threw it in.

Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did!
