"gave me more of a reason to celebrate"

Dear world,

Hola! =) I've been busy and will usually be quite busy with school so I will be blogging every now and then when I actually have free time lol. Blogging will be my relaxation! So what's new...hmmm well the weather has been like a roller coaster ride; warm & sunny one day then another day just foggy & raining. It's weird, but what to expect right? The weather in the bay area is unpredictable. But what can I say, I love the weather here because most of the time it's cold, meaning layers and more layers. =]

So Wednesday [on Oct. 29th], it was a gorgeous sunny day. It was also my grandma's birthday which made the day more of a reason to celebrate.

So my mom took this picture. As you can see the splendid weather I mentioned that day. The cloud's arrays were beautiful wasn't it? Btw, haha do not mind my poses, I'm camera shy, so this blogging will help me get use to it. Now why was I looking up? Haha well I guess I was reflecting on God's goodness, not just for another day but for blessing my grandma with another year. But God is good, all the time!

So we went to the Farmer's Market near school and wanted to show you guys the boots. But unfortunately, mumsie missed it Lol. Oh yea, let me add, I was not dressed for the weather =X so boy was I HOT & sweaty (eww right).

After Farmer's Market, we headed to eat out in celebration for my grandma's birthday. I seen these beautiful paintings behind me and I wanted my mom to take a pic, but sadly you can only see a glimpse of it =(. Maybe next time since we're usually in that area. So chyea my pose looks a bit awkard here don't you think lol. Look at the fist!? Yikes. So here's my boring outfit that day. Most of the time however, you will most likely see me wearing boots since I LOVE LOVE LOVE boots and can never have enough of them and might I add scarves as well. So you can pretty much predict what my accessories will be =). Well that's my blog for the night folks. Sorry if I bored ya!

Green with Envy, my FIRST blog :-)

Hello world! My name means pearl in Greek so I'll let you do the research. But Yeeepeee! My first blog folks! I'm uber excited! First I have to thank a friend of mine aka "Fashion Soul Sista" for getting me into this blog hype. You can get a taste of her as well @ Her blogging rubbed off on me fast & quick I tell ya, which eventually brought me to this point! So welcome, welcome, welcome! :-)

Well like most of you fashion/trend bloggers, I have a passion for style as well! Having a blog will allow me to express my fashion excitement like many of you "already" established fashion bloggers out there. So thank you for sharing your tips, style, & ideas. After all "fashion bloggers are like SKITTLES, different flavors for different taste but put together make one bag full of sweetness." Delightful isn't it?!

This blogging journey will be so much fun! For me, this will serve as my embedded footprints for reflection in the future and see the array of styles (I hope) I have walked in, along with others of course.

before church
So that's "moi" above Lol, with my chubby cheeks. I'm in that mode of wanting to shed some extra lbs., so we'll see how THAT goes! haha. Sooo that was on a Sunday (going to church). It was just one of those days where I felt I had nothing to wear! You know that feeling!? When you feel you have no clothes to wear but you REALLY have a closet full of 'em?! I know it's weird right?! But yes that's how I felt =(. Fortunately, I was feeling green with envy =d Lol, so while looking through my accessories, I found my green striped leggings and zebra patterned scarf. I thought at first it wouldn't go well, so I decided to accent it with a touch of red in which I found my checkered short-sleeved blazer. As a result "voilĂ ", so there goes my outfit. The coordination actually went well beyond what I expected so that made me a happy camper for the day.

So after church, I had to do laundry. It got a bit cold so I changed into much warmer black leggings, knocked off my heels with some black flats, and changed my scarf =). So that's my blog for the day. Hope you enjoyed. Thanks for visiting me!
