Hiking for Wildflowers

I hope the everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend!  If you follow me on any of my social media, you would have seen that I went to Las Vegas this weekend.  I had so much fun!  Went to the Backstreet Boys concert at Planet Hollywood (AJ is still my favorite), ate at a lot of really good restaurants, won some money (even though I could have won more if I had stopped when I should have), and did some shopping!  Spending some quality time with my friends is always a plus! I did realize this weekend that I am old.  Seeing all the young 21 years olds in barely there clothing, super excited about clubbing and open bars made me realize…that’s definitely not me anymore.

Anyway, a few weekends ago I dragged my boyfriend to see the wildflowers in Lake Elsinore.  He refused to go to Carlsbad to see the Flower Fields and Antelope Valley to see the Poppy Preserves.  Well, I got him to go see the wildflowers off the 15.  When we got there, we realized that we needed to do a bit of hiking.  We were both not really prepared for that and I was in flip flops.  Well, there are some sacrifices you must make for some decent photos.

After a bit of complaining from him, I eventually got him to hike to the wildflowers and take some pictures.  Side note –   The wildflowers in Lake Elsinore off the 15 freeway are really sporadic.  It’s not a beautiful hill filled with them. However, I had a lot of fun hiking up the hill and stopping by Tom’s Farms on the way home.  If you haven’t stopped by there before, definitely do it when you’re on your way back from San Diego.

Enjoy the photos!

Beauty Style

Chambray & Ruby

I never thought I could wear red lipstick until I found MAC’s Ruby Woo.  It’s literally the most perfect red for an Asian skin tone. I give it a 5/5 even though this isn’t a beauty review.  It had rained the night before so I thought this would be the perfect time to wear my favorite red Madewell scarf with some red lipstick.  Boy was I wrong … it was sunny without a cloud in the sky so I had to ditch the scarf halfway through because I was sweating like crazy!

Chambrays.are.the.BEST.period.  They’re the best neutral color to throw on and add some accessories to (besides my favorite black of course!).  When I was dating a guy once, I was meeting up with him for dinner and as he walked through the door he was wearing HEAD TO TOE DENIM.  I almost died.  Okay, maybe it wasn’t ALL denim but he was wearing jeans and a jean jacket.  It was not a good look.  So when I thought that I was going to wear basically all denim (to those who think chambray IS denim), I just had the words “Canadian Tuxedo” in my head.  haha
