Laline's Beauty and the Beach Event

Photobucket

Earlier this month, I attended Laline's "Beauty and the Beach" event with some blogger beauties. It was a relaxing evening filled with delicious drinks from Los Osuna, tasty bites from caterer Ronnie Woo, and mouth-watering tequila flavored ice cream from Abel 1950. For those of you who might not be familiar, Laline is a bath and body care line that specializes in aromatic products for the "body and soul." Their cruelty-free line is definitely one to check out, especially if you love treating yourself to soothing skincare products. I had such a fun time hanging out with some of my blogging buddies. 'Twas a nice way to welcome in the summer.

Behind The Scenes: Benefit Video Shoot

BENEFIT

If there's one thing I've always found interesting while perusing blogs, it's being able to see behind the scenes snaps of projects and daily life. So, when I found out I'd be taking part in the Benefit gloss project, you better believe my camera and iPhone were glued to my hip. Above are some of my fav snaps from set with Krystal and Whit. From getting my make up done to what I ate for dinner on set, I wanted to be able to capture every moment for you all. I do hope you all enjoyed the video, as well as these photos.

Orange Creamsicle

Top: c/o Blaque Muse; Skirt: Forever 21; Wedges: Jeffrey Campbell; Necklace: H&M

My closet has seen an influx of orange, but I can't say I'm mad. In fact, I'm pretty sure there's more where that came from. Truth is, I'm trying to fill my closet with every color of the rainbow, and when I find pieces like this F21 skirt, that mission becomes much easier. The top is another goodie from Blaque Muse, and I've worn it at least 3 times since I received it. Pieces like this make dressing up and down SO much easier. I can wear it to work or out to dinner, and that is something I love. I have to admit that my closet is also going through somewhat of a revamp. I have three large piles of clothes to donate/sell and I'm really just focusing on getting pieces that are classic and refined. I'll let you know how that one goes.

Here's a little video campaign I was in, along with two other beautiful Bay Area bloggers, Krystal of This Time Tomorrow and Whit of Britt + Whit, for the launch of Benefit's new lip glosses!







Stay tuned for some behind the scenes footage and more!

Laundry Blues

Photobucket IMG_6775 Photobucket Dress worn as a skirt: Forever 21; Top: Cotton On; Bag: Nordstrom; Necklace: c/o Jewelmint; Shoes: Nine West; Photos by: Ryan Chua 

The last time I wore this "skirt," it had a whole different look...mostly because it's really a maxi dress. But, because I can't take clothing labels seriously, often times, I do things I'm really not supposed to do (like dry stuff in the dryer rather than hang dry...oopsie). It's a good thing you can't tell the difference! I'm just bummed I can't wear this sucker as a dress anymore. Anyhoo, I wore this little number to last week's Laline event. Event post coming later this week..along with some other pretty awesome stuff. Giveaway #1 starts this week too! Trust me, this is a week you won't want to miss. Happy Monday! xo

Pumpkin Soup

BLAQUEMUSE BLAQUEMUSE1 BLAQUEMUSE2 BLAQUEMUSE3 BLAQUEMUSE4 BLAQUEMUSE5
Dress: c/o Blaque Muse; Sweater: Guess; Necklace: H&M; Belt: Old Navy; Wedges: Soda

There's nothing I love more than a beautiful dress, because truth be told, I'm a dress-kinda-gal. When I received this dress in the mail, the first thing everyone said to me was, "Chanda, that is so you." And, well, it is. Maybe it's the beautiful cut, the little details in the sleeves, or the pretty little print -- whatever it is, when I saw it, it instantly made its way to the top of my favorites. Sadly, summer is making it's way to SF a little earlier than planned. If you know anything about the summer in SF, you know that it's the coldest winter you can experience! So, I'm trying to get as much wear out of my beautiful new dress before the cold sets in, ha!  For those of you who like the dress, make sure to hop on over to Blaque Muse and check out all the other fun items for sale! (I also really love this cute cocktail dress.) Even better, get 20% off your order when you use the code BLAQUEMUSE!

In other news, if it seems like I've been MIA for a bit, I do apologize. Work has been keeping me busy and sadly, my little baby macbook that has been with me through countless college essays, hundreds of outfit photos, and bunches of blog posts has been acting up like crazy, making blogging a little harder than it has to be. I really do have a lot of good things coming your way... especially next week (eeeep!!), so I do hope you'll bear with me. To make it even more worth your while, I have a lot of giveaways for the month of June! First one starts soon :)
