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!

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! 🙂
