Monday

Biking.

Good evening,

The beach did happen today! I went biking with my cousins Tammy, Dustin, John and my sister Karen at Sunset Beach. We biked from Sunset Beach to Huntington Beach and back. It was pretty tiring at the end, but it's something I would definitely do again. We all rented our bikes for $10 each at the Bargain Bike Rental at Sunset Beach. I hope I'm able to fix my bike at home, because this is something I would like to do often :-)

Used my backpack today and it was so convenient

 Our biking journey begins here. My sister and her new Ferrari, jk!

How pretty



Stopped by Bruxies at Huntington Beach! Irish Nachos & Creme Brulee



On the way back, I see a fallen tree branch......... lol
 

That's all the pictures I took from today! 

Good night.

Love,

Sunday

Blue Gray.

Hello hello.

Why has it been extra hot lately? I was enjoying the summer breeze, now I feel like I'm melting. I plan to go to the beach with my sister and cousins tomorrow. I hope my plan follows through, haha.

Yesterday, my aunt took us (Karen, Michael, and I) to the buffet and we needed to do some walking after so we went to Nordstrom Rack. It wasn't much walking though since the Nordstrom Rack at Huntington Beach is small....., but I found this dress yesterday. The dress has a split right down the middle, hello breeze. It was an additional 25% off since it was a red tag item.  Score! (-: $16 well spent. Check out your local Nordstrom Rack and see what you can find!




Dress - Nordstrom Rack
Sandals - Gap 

Well I'll end it here. I haven't done much except go to Guppies for brunch. I hope the day ends well.

Saturday

Dimsum and Dresses.

Good afternoon,

The day has not ended, but I'm going to update really quick. I've finally went out to eat with my dad on the weekend, A WEEKEND to be exact. We went to go eat Dimsum at Seafood World with my sister and Michael. My cousin Michael from New Mexico is visiting until the end of July. I've been thinking of places to take him. Where should we go? Hm.



Yum yum (From my Instagram)

Here's my outfit of the day.




Blouse - The Limited (It was on sale & an additonal 40% off, sweet!)
Shorts - H&M
Sandals - Gap 


One last thing!


Recently my friend has opened up her online store for a few of her dresses. We just took a few shots of us wearing them before she sends them off to her customers! So proud of her :-') There are a few left, so check them out here!




Isn't it cute? Well I'll end it here, because I'm getting hungry again! : X 

Love,
Haley 

Team Jumpsuit!

Hey y'all.

I'm finally off on the weekends now, well Saturday and Sunday at least :-) Started off the day with doing what I do best. Eat! I ate sushi at Sushi Sankai with Karen and headed to the mall right after (It's across the street). The only thing I had in mind of what I wanted to do today was go to Zara. I saw a sale going on online, so I figured there must be one in-stores. There was, but I didn't really find anything. It was just too many things and people. Hahha. Maybe I'll have better luck looking online than in-stores. After going to South Coast Plaza, I headed to my favorite place. Target! Lol, I did too much damage today, sigh. I'm looking forward to trying the Revlon Hot Air Kit. I hope it works! My hair has been so flat lately, all that dying. I also got volume boosting shampoo from Vidal Sassoon, I hope it provides a lot of volume to my flat hair. The last product that I hope works as well is the Laneige BB Cushion. There's something similar to this BB Cushion at work, but it's double the price! :-O I got it in the shade medium, both my sister and I are going to try it. I shall let you know how it goes. I got other products too, such as my go to eyeliner. My go to eyeliner is from Physician's Formula. It lasts all day and it doesn't budge. It's also a serum. I'm not sure about the serum making my lashes longer or anything, but as an eyeliner it does its job.




Enough about what I did, here's what I wore doing what I did. Is that weird to say? Lol! I bought this jumpsuit for about half the price during the Topshop sale in The Grove in LA! My sister was looking for a graduation dress and I stumbled across this lovely beige jumpsuit. Hallelujah. Hahhahah, it's so comfy. I love it :-) I know I'll be wearing it quite often. I think I've said this before I will live in jumpsuits. Team jumpsuits, ahaha jk!





I'm not quite sure where you could get this necklace, because my mom's friend let me borrow it. She gets most of her jewelry in the Fashion District in LA I'm assuming. You might want to check that area out looking when looking for accessories and clothes!


Jumpsuit - Topshop
Sandals - Gucci from Nordstrom Rack

That's all for my outfit of the day.


On another note, I've been leaning towards buying a Personal Microderm tool. It's a bit pricy, but I really want to get rid of my dark spots and acne scarring. I hope I'll be able to be satisfied with the results if I do buy it! Is it worth it? Tell me.

Good day!

Love,
Haley

Tuesday

Gray.


Hi there! I’m currently on summer break and I hope to update more. I think I said I would be updating more with the last post, but hey… summer gives me the chance to be even lazier. Hah. Should I make a summer to-do list? If I actually think of what I want to do, I might post them here (-:

So what have I been up to lately? Not much, but I’m proud to say I’ve been attending yoga classes. Groupon had a deal for $69 for one month of yoga at CorePower. I think that’s quite cheap, compared to the $20/class or $200 monthly rate. I’ve been going to the beginning yoga classes with my friends. I would have never gone by myself, if they didn’t tell me about it. Why? I wouldn’t have the slightest idea of what I would be doing, lol! Thank goodness for the helpful and friendly teachers. Yoga makes me feel much better/healthier. I hope to continue yoga in the future, even though most likely it will be at home (if there are any good deals please let me know). Yoga also gave me the mentality of eating anything was okay… (-:O and an excuse to buy workout clothes. I also picked up a really cute mat from Marshalls for $8! Marshalls and TJ Maxx had some really reasonable prices on the mats and workout gear, so be sure to check them out. Isn't this a cute print? 





I’ll give you a little update with my skincare routine as well.  As you might know, I love Clarins and their Ecran Multi-Protection sunblock (already on the 3rd bottle), so I thought I should try their day and night cream too.

Let’s talk about what I did love, the Clarins Multi-Active Night Youth Recovery Cream (Normal to Combination Skin). I guess I love it so much, that I’m onto my second jar. It’s a bit pricy, but I do see a difference in the morning when I wake up. My skin is more firm and moisturized as to opposed with a night of skipping it. I think it slightly evened out my skin tone or it seems to be a bit whiter in appearance.  It’s a major plus, that it doesn’t cause me to breakout and I have acne-prone skin. I think this night cream will become a staple of my skincare routine. Also you might notice there’s a slight scent, but I like it haha.





I thought because I loved the night cream, I would love the Clarins Multi-Active Day cream just as much, but I did not. It does a great job of moisturizing the skin, but I think it gave me a few tiny breakouts. The little breakouts were a sign for me to stop using the product. If I can prevent any breakouts, I will do so! I’ll be sticking to my Clinique moisturizing gel for my daytime moisturizer. While I was at the Clarins counter, I also got their Ever Matte foundation. I’m still testing it out. Will it replace the Lancome Teinte Idole Foundation? We shall see (-:

The Clarins counter at Bloomingdales gave me a free gift bag for buying two items. Look at all these freebies I get to try. Sweet, hehe.



Last, but not least here’s my latest outfit of the day on Lookbook! I guess you can tell I’m wearing H&M from head to toe, well almost! Just excluding the sandals, they're from Zara. 




Sunglasses - Marc by Marc Jacobs from Nordstrom Rack
Cardigan - H&M
Tank - H&M
Skirt - H&M
Sandals - Zara

This felt like a long post, hope I didn't bore you :-) Also, I'm still trying to figure out my camera. Good night, well good morning now where I'm from. It's 12 AM now, so maybe I should sleep. 

Monday

Black Jumpsuit.

Good afternoon.

Mondays are always hard for me. I don't know if it's because I'm tired from working the previous day or just the waking up, but Mondays aren't my favorite. I'll tell you what is a favorite though, jumpsuits! They're extremely comfortable (with the exception of when you need to use the restroom). Aside from that I love jumpsuits, I would live in one every day if I had enough. 

I found this jumpsuit awhile back on ASOS, so I'm not sure if it's still available. You can still find similar ones on their website (-:

Well the day isn't entirely over yet, so I'm going to enjoy the rest of it! Have a good day :-)

Tuesday

Orange.

Good afternoon!

Last night I tried to stay up to upload my outfit of the day, but I just couldn't stay awake. It's a day late, but here I am updating now. School started last week and I feel like I have quite a lot of work to do. Hopefully, it won't stop me from updating my blog. Maybe I'll do it during class, just kidding!

Speaking of class, my classes are pretty far from one another. I have to speed walk to every single one of my classes, so what I wear definitely has to be comfortable. The orange maxi skirt is definitely comfy, that's the reason why I bought one in black too! I'm that type of person who buys things in multiple colors. Is that strange? I also took advantage of the H&M 20% off coupon with my purchase, hehe. Sign up to be a part of their newsletters and they send you coupons quite often!

Also, I'm looking forward to the weekend because of the Lunar New Year/Vietnamese New Year (Tet). If you're Asian, you know what I'm talking about. Red envelopes, that's not the only thing, but one of the main things.  (-; If I don't get to update before then, I would like to wish you a Happy Lunar New Year!
