Hello!! What a gloomy day today in Santa Monica?! :( Makes me wanna go back to bed and catch up with my book and hot tea:) i'm reading -Man's search for meaning by Viktor Frankel. I heard that it's a very deep and powerful book that helps you cope with life. I just started reading it and i'm not a big reader but I try to force myself to read more. I've always been jealous of all these people who can start reading a book and finish it within a few days. I'm so bad in this , because it's hard for me to focus, I get too distracted with everything that's going on around me.

Something I started doing more since I moved to LA is biking. It's just very easy here since the weather is good and allows it. Since I haven't biked for a while and had to get used to it again, Jason and I started using Hulu bikes, which are an amazing thing. They are located all over LA and sometimes there will be a few stations within a few miles between each one . It is pretty easy to use; all you need to do is download an app called Sobi , log in and you're set. It then opens up a map when you log in to the app and shows your where are the nearest Hulu bicycle stations. 

I've been spending a lot of time bicycling through the city, the best part is when you bike on the beach and watch the ocean, getting some tan. On weekends the beach gets pretty crowded so you wouldn't be the only one biking, but it's still fun:)

Here, I was wearing a black long sleeved shirt, ripped jeans, and havianas flip flops ! 

Happy Thursday !!!

Hellooo!! I'm back today with a set of photos Jason and I took in the Hollywood Hills. Wearing lace always makes me feel so special , its romantic and flirty vibes put me in a a good mood. Match your lace to the theme/ outing you are going for; Wearing black lace indicates more sultry, sensual attitude, white lace would means pure, delicate, dreamy; Pink lace is all about sweet and flirty. Since the weather has been really nice, I wore my dress with black heeled sandals and burgundy bag since I was going to an evening event. I also applied my newly favorite red lipstick (Red Lizard by Nars), for a more dramatic look. Lately I have been really obsessed with red (!) And as for jewelry, I kept it very minimal and barley wore any.

This color is absolutely gorgeous for summer and will make your skin pop if you are a little tanned. You can always fake it and wear a bit of a bronzing product, spray tan or just anything that will make you skin a bit more glowy!

And to a different topic; I have talked a lot in older posts about how much i love wearing leggings since they are super comfy and casual, and that if I could I would wear leggings all the time (!) I stumbled upon a buyer's guide for leggings where they talk about different styles of leggings with different prints, colors and shapes. I thought it was really helpful and wanted to share it with you! Take a look at:  https://www.fashiown.com/best-leggings-for-women/

Happy Friday babes !!!! Unfortunately I got a little cold, so not gonna be a fun day for me... Will probably try and rest as much as I can and watch movies (!!) A little throwback to a week ago when Jason and I visited the Beverly Hills Hotel with a few friends. I've never been there before that but always wanted to go because i've seen so many gorgeous pictures taken there ! SO I was obviously excited. We had brunch at the Cabana Cafe area, which was really pretty, quite (since it was around 11 am , not many people were out there yet); we were facing the beautiful pool they have , and the whole atmosphere was very pleasant! we then headed to the pool area (it was empty, cause as I said it was early and not busy at all) anyway, so I was sitting on that lounge chair they had at the corner of the pool in order to get a nice photo that captures the beautiful backround, and we tried to be pretty quick with the pictures because i heard they are not very happy with people taking photos at the hotel (weirdos, I know) ; and of course, about 3 minutes later we see a guy coming towards us telling us they have to make the pool area ready for gusts to come (really, what's next on your list) basically bullshitting and in other words kicking us out of there.. we have literally been there for 3 mins! crazy! Anyway, we got out of there and moved to a different area at the lobby where they had a cute wallpaper of palms decorating the wholeway.

We then got out of the hotel and just explored Beverly Hills a bit more, since we don't do it that often. Living in Santa Monica is the best thing. You really rarely have to drive anywhere else because you've got everything you need there!

I was wearing a loose stripes blouse that I got from Urban Outfitters and I really like the fabric of that blouse, super airy and light ! the stripes are not harsh as well unlike other stripes shirts. Paired it up with my beloved Topshop jeans and Manebi shoes !

wishing you all a beautiful day!!!!

Hello blog ! whats better than wearing a strapless loose dress on a hot summer day ! honestly when the temperatures are high up all I feel like wearing is a short summer dress! I got this blue jean strapless dress at Zara about a year ago and it was at the back of my closet ever since. When I reorganized my closet a few days ago, i found that dress which i forgot about the whole time and I was very happy about it, because that color is perfect for summer ! I made some space and moved it to the front of my closet so that I can make more use out of it! I really like the details this dress has around the shoulders area. When we shot some pictures I paired it up with my Manebi laced up espadrilles which are a must in every closet (!) since they literally scream SUMMER ! This dress would work awesome as a night out look if you pair it up with black stilettos or high heeled sandals like my ones from Stuart Weitzman.

We took these photos in West Hollywood, on Melrose Ave in a beautiful corner where they had all these lovely flowers attached to a wall. It was very peaceful, I'm always ok with flowers in the backround of my photos! West Hollywood has all of these hidden corners between all the coffee shops and restaurants, which are perfect for photos! 

Today I babysit a small dog, so in addition to my two little fluff balls I have another doggie for the day! 3 dogs in one apartment ! Let the party begin , lol!

little black dress

Hello blog ! a little black dress is a girl's best friend? I think so! I'm wearing a dress from Bebe here which has cute gold details on the sides. what I love about this dress is the low cut it has on the back which I find very flattering. Black is such a basic color and is easier to style then most other colors, so you can always accessorize with colorful items like a red bag or a blue jean jacket, or anything else you wish. 

Today it's a little chilly here , all I wanna do is lay down and watch netflix haha! I just watched Secret life of pets which is such a cute movie and I really recommend watching it especially if you have a pet at home!!
