#WCW : IMAAN HAMMAM

With Fashion month coming to an end, plenty of models have gotten their chance to make a name for themselves—and one of my favorites is Imaan Hammam; this weeks Woman Crush Wednesday. Imaan is a Dutch fashion model who was born in Amsertdam, however she has both Moroccan and Egyptian roots.  I’m in love with everything about the 19…

THE NO MAKE-UP MAKEUP LOOK, AND HOW TO MASTER IT

One of the latest trends in the makeup/beauty industry of today is, ironically, making it look like you have none on at all. It seems rather counterintuitive, I know, however many of today’s popular celebrities—Taylor Hill, Jasmine Tookes, and more—pull it off effortlessly, and have inspired us slightly more average folk to attempt to do the…

BOYS/MEN : ARE THEY REALLY FROM MARS?

As the saying goes, “Men are from Mars, women are from Venus”. I think that the majority of us girls can relate to this simple fact: we do not understand guys and, no matter how hard we try to, may never be able to—as a matter of fact, the majority of us don’t want to,…

AUTUMN IN CALI

Ironically, there virtually is no such thing. Sure, it gets a little chilly, and it gets fairly windy, too—but to give you a sense of what I mean, I should inform you of the fact that as I’m writing this post, I’m sunbathing at Stinson Beach (attempting to rid my poor legs of a horrible…

STYLE WATCH : HELLO, FALL! MY FAVORITE FALL TRENDS

So, Summer is over (sob!). But that doesn’t mean the season of showing off our shaven (probably not for long) legs and figure-flaunting dresses has to be—in fact, for those who prefer the looser sweater dresses over the thin sundresses, it’s just begun. Fall is (and always has been) my favorite season—and, like the majority of us who don’t…

THE KEYS : A NO-EXCUSES GUIDE TO SUCCESS, NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE

(cover photo courtesy of aesthetictxture) Now, I know what you’re thinking. In fact, I know what you’re thinking because I’m probably thinking the very same thing—how and what on earth could I possibly know about success?  After all, I’m beginning my third year of high school—college, let alone the rest of my life, should hardly be of…

BEAUTY : EVERYDAY MAKEUP ROUTINE

Before going into this, I should just state that I’m nowhere near a beauty guru. Seriously—  My eyebrows are usually distant cousins rather than sisters, and after applying foundation, my face to neck color ratio is pretty much comparable to Iggy Azalea’s body:  And, as a girl on a budget, I buy pretty cheap (and, let’s be honest ,…

BAY-WATCH : SAMOVAR TEA LOUNGE

(featured photo courtesy of Pinterest) 80 degree weather in San Fransisco at 1 in the afternoon is weather that only really occurs on the 30th of February, so when it occurred on the 18th of September—this past Sunday—I had to take advantage of it.  I went out to lunch at Samovar Tea Lounge, located in the Yerba Buena…

BAY-WATCH : GRAND FARE MARKET

(featured photo courtesy of Grand Fare Market) This discovery of mine began with something the majority of us can relate to—me dragging my mother out of the house because I was absolutely famished. I’d spent the entire day out with my friends on a $20 (!) budget, so in a desperate attempt to save my money, I decided…

THE WHITE TEE & BLACK DRESS AFFAIR

As much as I would love to tell everyone about how fashion savvy I am, I’m not—but that doesn’t mean I don’t love to look good just as much as the next. One of the main reasons for my fashion “un-savvyness” is the fact that I attend a Catholic school, which requires a uniform and doesn’t…

NOE VALLEY SHOOT

Does anyone ever think they look amazing when they look at their reflection, but then step out the house and see a photo taken of them—and then cringe? That was me this past Saturday.  Recently I did my first photoshoot with a really close friend of mine whom you’ll see a lot on this blog—Nyah! I’ll write…

W E L C O M E

Where do I even begin with this blog? This is more of something for myself, to keep track of my life and all that goes on, but I have decided that blogging is far more interesting than writing in a diary, or something.   This is me! For the convenience of both you and I, I…
