Blue


As much as I aspire to be Justin and Britney during their iconic all-denim-formal-wear, I think a chambray shirt and railroad denim is the closest I'm ever going to get. Heck, maybe one of these days I'll get one of those denim cowboy hats JT was sporting. But then again, probably not. (Photos by Allen Samuel Lee)

Poolside Hologram


This swimsuit is absolutely to die for. I managed to scoop it up for a really great deal during the last round of the Nasty Gal going-out-of-business sale and I'm so glad I did. It's holographic goodness was perfect for being poolside in Guadalajara.

Factory February Box


I absolutely loved (pun intended) my February Facetory Box. So much so that I really spread out my usage of these sheets to make sure I could make it last longer. Well, because of that, I'm behind on posting my boxes! Oops! Click through for more information on these sheets and where you can try them for yourself.

Sugar and Spice


I was a little late to the party getting to Target to check out the Victoria Beckham collaboration. Amazingly, they had one pair of these pants left and they were in my size. I'm totally in love. (Photos by Allen Samuel Lee)

Spring Vibes


I'm really digging spring. I picked up this adorable pom-pom blouse at a market during my trip in Mexico and it felt totally perfect to break out today.

Scratch Goods


I recently switched over my entire skincare routine. Online friends in beauty forums I belong to have been raving about oil cleansing — something that I thought maybe would be helpful for me. I've mentioned here before that I grew up with bad acne and have always been self conscious of my skin, and that it's only been the last five or six years that I've really gotten a routine down. In my research of oil cleansing, I was reminded of Chicago friends Scratch Goods — food-grade, small batch skincare made right here in my neighborhood. After microblading the brows of the owners Elizabeth and Maureen, I took the plunge.

You've Got Nail 70 // Scratch February Box


I somehow managed to completely skip over my February Scratch Monthly Mani Kit — which is horrible considering that it is my favorite yet! I absolutely adore these wave wraps I made three sets out of these nails. Click though for all the details.

Guadalajara


Mexico was absolutely incredible! I was only gone for a few days, so I managed to pack really light, modest outfits for exploring the city. This look, in particular, was my favorite, and lasted for a day of eating tacos and going to a music festival in Zapopan.
