Mother’s Day!

Happy late Mother’s Day to all the beautiful, strong, wonder women out there lols. For Mother’s day, my siblings and close friend and I threw a little bbq for my mom. I didn’t have time to fully decorate the way I planned or make macarons but we got the important dishes: clams, steaks, chicken kabobs, sangria and last but not least roasted marshmallow! Although it was chilly and breezy we had a great time with great people and great food. I hope everyone enjoyed their Mother’s Day. Thanks for reading! 😉

Room Decor

Wow! It’s been a while since I’ve updated my blog. Just didn’t have time and I tend to forget so with that being said get ready for a spam of posts in your feed ;). I’ve always loved decorating growing up, not saying that I am great or anything, but I really enjoy it. So lately, I’ve been trying to transform my room a little here and there and so far this is what I have. I bought the clothes rack form ikea for $10 to use as a fashion rack for inspiration, the faux sheep rug from ikea for $10 also! The table I got about a month or so ago from ikea from the malm collection for about $150, it really is a great table for organizing makeup. I got the tiny little shelf for $7, on sale at target, what  a great deal! oh and the mirror I got from Marshalls for $25, it was a really great price for a mirror that big. I hope you enjoy and thanks for reading!




some pick ups from the other day: lip tar in strumpet, chain link bracelet and rings from charlotte rousse

Wine & Dine

Hello loves! Me and my friends like to joke around that we’re bad luck because nothing ever turns out right for us when we go out. Half the time, we don’t have a plan, we just walk around and do random things or whatever happens to pop in our head at the moment. Last night, my sister, her boyfriend, my friend and I decided to hang out because it was finally a little bit warmer out, still a little chilly, but better than the rest of this week. I wanted go to the bon fire at PYT because I just lovee bon fires. I wish they had them on the beaches here on the east coast. Anywho, all the tables were taken, so we went to look for margaritas around Northern Liberties and all the places were too packed, so that was a fail. Ended up just getting Starbucks. I love the Nothern Liberties area, especially the little area with the Christmas Lights.

Today, I was in the mood for Sangria. We decided to look at Garces Trading Company because it was a nice charcuterie with wine and sweets (MACARONS!), etc. It was what we were looking for, however it was all booked up, so we had to look for another place. So, we decided to walk a couple of blocks down, and ended up at Valanni. It turned out pretty good, we just munched on some finger food and we got our sangria. ;). Anyways, just thought I share some photos from last night and today for you including my outfit. Thank you for reading, hope you enjoy!

Thirsty Thursday

Hello loves! I’m just lounging around catching up on American Horror Story Season 2, I missed it the other day. Anyways, it’s been a long week, and I am ready for Friday! I don’t have anything planned, but I just want to relax and have a glass of sangria or moscato, which are two of my favorite drinks! I tried making homemade sangria following a recipe from allrecipes.com this summer. I will share some pictures of that and also link the recipe I tried below. I love frozen fruits, so I decided to add that to my moscato. I tried the Umberto Fiore Moscato d’asti. I loved it! It was sweet and bubbly. The sangria recipe was okay, I used ginger ale instead of club soda, which made it better. Hope you enjoy! Thanks for reading ;)!

I decided to add a picture of my homemade pink lemonade also. I went to Joe’s Crab Shack for the first time and I ordered a cherry limeade twist. When I was leaving, they told me I can take the jar home, my face lit up like a kid in a candy store! I love drinks in mason jars and fish bowls, I just think it’s so cute. The very next day, I had to use the jar to make some sort of drink and I decided on pink lemonade ;).

Here is the link for the sangria recipe. Hope you enjoy! Thanks!

Also thought I share what I am eating right now. It’s sort of a vietnamese vermicelli with pork and sweet chili fish sauce.
