Check out these window displays at Hermes, Paris. They're inspired by Turkish ceramics... colorful and luxurious.

Can we agree that this is the best TV series opening sequence?! The blood orange... I applaud you, Showtime.


These delectable chunks of chocolate are tacked onto the end of a spoon, ready to sweeten any cup of coffee or hot chocolate. They are created in the Netherlands by the The Chocolate Company. I really appreciate the plethora of exotic flavors they come in... forty-six to be exact. There are classics like hazelnut, espresso, and tiramisu, but there are also daring flavors like chili and wasabi. Some even come with a shot of whisky or amaretto! I can't pass up sharing a great chocolate creation.

The Monday ritual has returned! This one is for you, Brittany Murphy.

Sex. Clothes. Popularity. Is there a problem here?

Holiday Dress Picks

Tis the season to be a little materialistic. Haha, actually quite the opposite! I've been bad (don't tell Santa!) and have scoured the internet for my favorite holiday dresses. A million sites have already displayed their seasonal favorites, but here's what I'm currently coveting...

Happy Birthday, Whitney!

A little known fact about me is that lolz is my third language. HAHA! Happy birthday to my good friend, Whitney- queen of lolz.

Disregard this post if you don't understand the inside jokes.

A Return to the Blogosphere

I've officially awaken from my blogging slumber! It was hard to stay away for so long, but I needed to focus on completing my undergraduate degree! Just some quick updates...

I had two great Thanksgiving dinners- one with my family and one with Marc's. I love all the dishes of a Thanksgiving dinner, and wish I could eat them all year round!
On the left is the lovely centerpiece Marc brought to my house.

But the BIG NEWS is that I GRADUATED! Finally, finally, finally.
(Sorry about the photo quality!)

My family, including Marc and my aunt and uncle came to celebrate. We had a graduation dinner at Ella in Sacramento, which I HIGHLY recommend. The tuna carpaccio I had was topped with an assortment of herbs such as dill, mint, and cilantro, mustard dressing, and a poached egg. A flavorful combination. I also recommend the hazelnut gnocchi! The following morning we went to Zocalo for Mexican brunch... another excellent restaurant.

Feels good to be back!
