Cherry Blossom Interview

Friday, May 23, 2014

Few years ago, I had gone to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden with my lil sister to see the Cherry Blossoms but they had all fallen then. Bummer! Wanted to go this year when they were in full peak and of course, the day my boyfriend and I go is the day Mother Nature decides to have sporadic rain showers. As soon as we get there, it started drizzling so we took cover in the Brooklyn Museum. Luckily, for us, the sun came back!

Felt like matching the flowers and since I don't have too much pink, I decided to break out my new Zara blazer. It is SUCH a soft material and paired it up with my go-to high waisted jeans and a crop top try toning down the business-y look of it. Glenn still thought I looked like I was going for an interview. lol :/ Oh wells.

Not a big fan of white anything as it gets dirty too quick but I loved this bag for the summer time feel. Great for carrying the big DSLR around and STILL look fashionable.

Love this candid shot of me laughing/smiling. I never take myself too seriously. Life is too short for that!

Dining on Style Travels: Chicago

Saturday, May 3, 2014

Behind in blog posts and I apologize to my followers! Life has caught up with me and I have been so busy at work that all I want to do when home is just vegetate/watch youtube videos.

Since the last post, a lot has happened so more posts to be posted! First up, Chicago!

Couple of months ago, went here with my boyfriend for one weekend and I must say, the architecture is far more superior than that of NY's. If you are in Chicago, take a boat tour. Lots of historic information and when the sun sets, it's just pure beauty. 

Warning: Architecturally picture heavy.

We ended our night eating deep dish pizza which is a MEH in my book (sorry, I prefer NY style!) then heading to the John Hancock tower for drinks. Awesome view of Millenium Mile and the Sears Tower by the window seats if you're lucky!

 Tip for travelers: Go to the Signature Lounge on the 96th floor to pass over the line to see the view and it's cheaper to just get a beer ($8) than pay full price  ($18) for the view!

The next day, we spent some time at Millennium Park and saw the famous Cloud Gate, which is lovingly called The Bean by locals. Not as big as I thought but it is still a pretty neat piece of art smack dab in the park!

Love all the funky sculptures around the park via Jun Kaneko. I'm a big fan of making faces in photos and there you have it. Me in all my glory.

Definitely need to come back to Chicago again! So many other places that I missed going to!
