Catch-up and Mustard

Random post name, I know. But this year the holidays seems to be whizzing past me and I’m trying my absolute very best to keep up! As you can see Jam and I had a very wonderful Thanksgiving. Here’s hoping you all had a great time with loved ones and bellies full of good food =)

We here in the Bay Area normally do not experience “seasonal” weather. Perfect example, while most of America was in Fall the Bay Area was in full effect of an Indian Summer. Weird, yeah I know, but I absolutely loveeee it! That’s one of the many reasons why I love my city.

With that said, may I add that it is now Beanie Season!! I do love myself a warm and cute beanie to keep my head warm, cover a bad hair day and to simply be lazy. Check it out and stay warm folks!

— mannnn I love SF!



Thanksgiving Aftermath

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! This weekend was all about family, food, fun, and, of course, good deals! I am fully stuffed, but my wallet is just a little bit emptier. It’s a bummer that the weekend has come to a close. But at least Christmas is only a month away!

Below are a few snapshots of what transpired on Thanksgiving day:

Here’s to the Holidays! Cheers! xo

Thankful Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I don’t know about you, but I am so ready to get my grub on! But, even more than that, I’m looking forward to spending some quality time with all my loved ones. As I prepare for this evening’s festivities and indulge in some gluttony, I’d like to take this moment to count all my blessings. 2012 has been a great year, and there’s lots to be thankful for! Here’s a just a small list  of what I’m most grateful for:

1. Family

Teeney and I can attest that our family is everything! We’re fortunate to have a close-knit cluster of cousins, aunts, uncles, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, babies and grandmother. Just this year, we had two new additions to the family. Two little healthy and adorable bundles of joy: our nephew lucky Luke Emmanuel and our precious niece Danielle Claire.

2. New Jobs

With a high unemployment rate that’s pervading our country, I’m just thankful to have a job. To have a job at ModCloth, my dream company, is an added bonus. Each day, I’m thankful to have the opportunity to work there. With my new job and Teeney’s new  gig at Bebe, we both are on the right track with our careers.

3. Technology

I guess it’s kind of bad how people these days have become so dependent on technology. But, c’mon, who can live without it? A few months earlier, I lost my iphone, and, man, did I feel the pain and pangs of that. Just recently, I was able to upgrade and reunite with an iPhone once again, and now I’m even more appreciative of it. Never will I let you out of my sight, dear iPhone. 😀

4. Bay Area Sports

This year, the Bay Area was lucky enough to experience a 2nd championship in 3 years with the SF Giants winning the World Series. I feel that our other teams will follow suit, with the 49ers on a winning tear, and yes even the Warriors! I’m thankful for my teams for providing me hours of entertainment and those moments of glory.

5. Good Music

Being the music buff that I am, how can I not be thankful for music? All of my days are fueled by the sweet melody of good tunes. And what kind of post would this be, if I didn’t end with my trademark music mix. For your listening pleasure, below is a Thanksgiving Playlist from yours truly:

You’re welcome!

What are you most thankful for?

Month Modiversary

I can’t believe that it’s already been a little more than month since I’ve started working at ModCloth. It’s been hectic, challenging and incredibly fun all at the same time. Everyday brings an exciting new adventure, and I’ve learned a whole lot!

I feel very lucky to have this opportunity to work at ModCloth. It feels pretty inspiring and empowering to be in a work environment where everyone is passionate about what they do. The majority of the employees are female,  many of whom are extremely smart, talented, and at the executive level status (girl power!).

What’s awesome is that I sit just about 20 feet away from my idol–none other than Susan G. Koger herself (the founder of ModCloth)! She has amazing style, and I’m always excited to see her outfit. Winston is not too far away too!

While it’s been extremely busy with the holiday season and all, ModCloth still manages to bring some fun to work! From donut days to bowling outings. One of my favorite things about work is an event we have on Tuesdays called On-Trend Tuesday. Basically, it’s a photoshoot with all the girls who wear ModCloth garb that day. Here’s one of my On-Trend Tuesday pics:

It’s really been a dream come true, and I’m looking forward to see what’s in store. To my one month and hopefully many more! 🙂

2012 World Series Champions – SF Giants

Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants, the World Series Champions of 2012! I couldn’t be anymore proud of our team. Coming from behind not once but twice, and sweeping the Tigers in dominant fashion. You proved all the naysayers wrong, overcame daunting adversity, and showed the world what it means to be a team! It was a fun ride this year. Thank you Giants for an unbelievable season!

Can’t wait for the parade this Wednesday! 🙂

Trip down memory lane.

Bundling myself up as the rainy weather hits up the SF Bay Area. Speaking of — this chilly weather reminds me of my trip to Chi- City (Chicago, IL) just about a year ago! Super cold, but super fun!! I def want to go back both in the cold and warm time! But I do have some trips already set in my mind for 2013 so unless there’s another airline sale, guess we’ll just have to wait and see! Anywhoo! Here’s wishing you all a lovely rest of the week. Stay warm folks!

Now.. a trip down memory lane, enjoy some pics from my Chicago 2012 trip with @daylachris

A Toast to bebe + ModCloth

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since my last post, and a lot has happened since then! I recently started a new job at ModCloth, and it has been super busy, but awesome!  It has always been a dream of mine to work for ModCloth, so I’m very thankful to have this opportunity.

To celebrate our recent accomplishments, Teeney and I ventured off into the city last weekeend for a well-deserved day full of sun, fun, food, and, of course, shopping! We started off our Sunday Funday with a bottomless mimosa brunch at B Restaurant courtesy of a great deal from Gilt. After taking a delightful stroll through Yerba Buena Gardens,  we headed towards the shops to do what we do best! Of course, the day wouldn’t be complete without a sweet treat, so we stopped by Cako on our way out. All in all, it was an amazing day!

October = Pumpkin patches and tipis

Where has the time gone? September seems to have just come and gone. Just last weekend on a scenic drive down towards Half Moon Bay we stumbled upon a lovely pumpkin patch =) With rows and rows of pumpkins I found myself enjoying the tipi much more. I’ve been contemplating on what to be for Halloween and I’m at a standstill at the moment. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see!

Fall 2012 Playlist

Today is the first day of Fall! With the cold air in the midst, I felt a tinge of inspiration, and I figured what better way to commemorate the season than to create a kick-ass playlist.

It’s the perfect soundtrack to kick back and relax, watching the leaves fall, all bundled up while drinking your pumpkin-spiced latte. Thematically, think: brisk atmosphere, aged attitudes and withering hearts.  Gotta love Fall symbolism! Enjoy!

Collecting dust.


Due to my favoring of other clothing pieces, I seemed to have neglected this sequined gem in my closet collecting dust. But now that I’ve re-kindled with this lovely piece you may be seeing it more often as it’s such a versatile piece and goes with just about everything and anything!
