Quick & Easy Homemade Breakfast Sandwich

Aloha ❤️ This morning I was frazzled on what to eat for breakfast. That’s when I decided to make an impromptu breakfast sandwich using ingredients on hand. This sandwich turned out amazing and is one of my new favorite breakfast treats.
Servings: 2

Ingredients:
• 1 bottle of your favorite jarred marinara sauce
• English muffins
• Shredded cheddar cheese
• 2 eggs
• Olive oil
•Sprinkle of salt & pepper
•Butter or Margarine

Directions:
1) Cut the english muffins lengthwise and place the halves in a toaster on medium high heat setting. You want the muffins to be well done so that it can hold the weight of the marinara and egg.
2) Heat a pan with a drizzle of olive oil on medium high heat. Add the marinara . Warm the sauce thoroughly.
3) While the sauce heats up, fry your egg any style. I prefer the yolks to be cooked fully so that it doesn’t run through the marinara. However, the yolk can add richness to the sauce if you prefer your eggs runny. Poached eggs can work too. This recipe is flexible for change so I recommend you to alter it to your own preference.
4) Take the muffins out of the toaster and spread a tablespoon of butter on both sides. Then, on the larger side of the muffin , spoon a few tablespoons of the sauce. Place the fried egg on top of the muffin w/ sauce. Sprinkle some cheese. The heat of the eggs and marinara will cause the cheese to melt. Lastly, put the second smaller side of the english muffin onto the sandwich. Voilà, your breakfast is ready!

Fairytales

Hey y’all! This past weekend I had a wonderful time at my local museum ESMOA. With only 1 floor, and pretty small, it is a gem I adore. There most recent theme is Spark- filled with fantasy and imagination. It was like stepping into a storybook with ogres and princesses. My most favorite exhibit yet! Check out my experience below!





Adored the mystical vibe and everything about it.

LAFW : Style Fashion Week

Hey guys! So yesterday I went to my first fashion show. It was at Style Fashion Week in LA. I viewed shows by Ophelia Song, Coco Johnson, and Tatiana Shabelnik. Unfortunately , I couldn’t stay for the grand finale which was a Red Dress show with dresses by designers such as Oscar de la Renta and Monique Lhuillier. However, I did get to see the dresses backstage and was stunned. Everything felt so surreal. I think the best part about it was that I go to experience both perspectives of a fashion show ; The ramp walk and Backstage where all the action happens. Backstage was so chaotic and productive. Every inch of space was being put to use and everyone was busy. There were hairdressers, make-up artists, designers, photographers, models all preparing for the show. Its astonishing how it takes hours and days to prepare for a 1 hour or less show. You truly gain a sense of respect for all the people who work backstage to make the show possible. However, My favorite aspect of the evening was the ramp walk. It felt like dream come true. I was so honored to be a part of such an event. It was such an exhilarating experience. To sit there, amongst designers and such affluent people to the fashion industry, was an unforgettable experience.

This show showcased clothing that were very soft and elegant. There were many aqua/blue shades, whites, and specks of black in the collection. It gave me a mermaid-y vibe .

Tatiana Shabelnik:
This show was the most whimsical and fun . The collection was colorful and vibrant . It began with a model dancing onto the stage wearing a stunning dress. Then, a man model joined her and they performed a lovely dance/walk. The music was energizing yet traditional. This collection had ensembles with different textures, patterns, and colors. All of it coherently worked well with each other. Some of the looks were a little bit medieval/fairytale looking. Overall, I loved the uniqueness to this show.

Top : Nordstrom
Skirt: Marshalls
Sunglasses: Nordstrom
Bindis: Indian Store
Flower Clips : not sure

Bindi Tip : Usually Bindis are worn between the eyebrows on the forehead. However, I like wearing one just below the “wing” of my liquid eyeliner.

Look 2: Spring-time Chic & Casual
This look is very crisp yet casual. It is perfect for a lunch date or afternoon stroll in the garden . I love how it looks so put-together when its on , even though its utterly simple. I think it’s something about white jeans that can make the simplest of outfits look so chic. Also , I love the bell sleeves of this top ( this used to be a huge 70s trend) . The top paired with the jeans is a perfect mix of vintage and modern style coherently complementing each other in an outfit. The maroon hat adds a splash of color to the outfit.

Top: TJ-Maxx (thats surprising? sometimes department stores can have the cutest of things… )
Jeans: Hollister
Hat: Charlotte Russe

Look 3: Day to Night Sophistication
This look is perfect for someone who needs there outfit to work for both the day and night. It will look stunning at the mall during the day and even more gorgeous at dinner in a restaurant during the evening. It’s that quintessential outfit that everyone needs when they’re busy. I particularly love the fun print of this kimono. It matches perfectly with the lacy white top. I love how classy it looks and the dark wash jeans add a great contrast. If the outift is worn during the day, you can wear strappy sandals with it and the cute black peeptoe heels during the might. Did I mention that these heels have a cutout in the heel? Foot cleavage is trendy. Continue reading

Best Ice Cream Ever…..

Hey guys , so today I went to a liquid nitrogen ice cream lab and fell in love. I am not exaggerating, it was simply extraordinary. The Ice Cream Lab in Beverly Hills serves up ice cream with a fun and modern twist. The flavors are unique and some of them are seasonal. The flavors most of us ordered were Blue Velvet, Banilla ( Banana + Vanilla) , Salty Caramel Pretzel, Cookies & Cream, and Vanilla . I ordered the Banilla and was in love. It tasted almost like a banana cream pie but in ice cream form. What I particularly love about this place is that the ice cream bases are pre-made , but they mix all the flavorings and liquid nitrogen in front of you. It is a really fun experience to watch them adding the liquid nitrogen and the ice cream base is magically transformed into a delectable concotion. The liquid nitrogen makes the ice cream have a smooth texture. In my opinion , the ice cream had a richer and creamier taste that ordinary ice cream. This is definitely one of the best ice cream places in LA! Here are some pictures of what we got.

DIY Dressing Table Decór

Aloha💓 Today I am going to be sharing with you guys my dressing table and give you guys cute diy ideas on how to glam your dressing table.

IMG_2383-0
So this is my dressing table. It is a dark mahogany color and I have an enormous circular mirror above it , which I adore. I am not particularly sure where its from , my parents bought it when I re-decorated my room. Anways, alot of the stuff on my dressing table are diys, art pieces, or random things such as my polaroid that just add a dimension to my dresser. I recommend adding vintage/memorable pieces or things you love to your dresser. It seriously makes it vibrant and really fun. Items such as statement accesories can be put on display on your dresser. These add a whimsical vibe to your dresser.

IMG_2377
This is a cute idea for storing your perfumes and mists. I keep mine on a white cake stand. You can find cake stands like these at stores that sell home goods such as Crate & Barrel, Target, or TJ-Maxx . I think it looks so pretty and is a good way to keep all of your fragrances in one place.

IMG_2394
This is an inexpensive yet chic way to store your jewelry. All you need is two small plates that are printed/fun, and a thin candle to put in between them. I recommend buying the plates from a vintage/thrift shop or getting them from the kitchen. Voilà you have a tiered jewelry stand!

IMG_2489-0
This is a piece of artwork that I painted. I placed it behind the jewelry as a backsplash. It adds a pop of color.

These are the three diys. The rest of the stuff were all purchased by shops. My black dress form necklace stand is from forever 21. The glass bottle on the far right has decorative colorful crystals on the bottom of it , and stores my hair brushes. I don’t know where he pink lamp is from because I got it as a gift.
