Personalized engraved watch from Jord

by Lesley Kim

Hi everyone!! The days are getting chilly, the Christmas lights are twinkling in the city, and the smell of cinnamon spice and cherry pie seems to permeate the stores…. and its definitely beginning to feel like the holidays!   I’m so excited to let you know I have partnered up with Jord to create a one of a kind present for a very special person in my life- a personalized engraved watch!

I have to admit, one of the hardest things to find for the holidays is that extra wonderful present for that amazing person in my life. My mom is the one I always want to give the best gift to for the holidays.  After all, I wouldn’t be here without her, and moms are known to be the most supportive, loving creatures on earth. And my mom is definitely that. This year, I was excited to find that Jord, a wood watch maker, is personalizing their watches so that you can write a short message to your loved one. My mom is close to my heart and I always want to show her how much she means to me.  For the holidays, Jord and I partnered up to give  her a beautiful wood watch (the Frankie 35, ret. $179), engraved with the words “to the best mom.” The watch came relatively fast, about 3 to 5 business days after placing my order, just in time for me to wrap and send to my mother. As the person who always supported and encouraged me to be the best I can be, finding a gift that would show her how much she means to me was a blessing. This personalized and engraved Jord watch is the perfect gift to remind my mother of how much I treasure her in my life. I think she will be extremely thrilled to receive not just a gorgeous watch, but also one with a special message, specifically written for her.

Zaful Review

by Lesley Kim

Hi everyone! I am always looking for new clothing stores that have unique and affordable pieces so that I can showcase it on my blog. Zaful is one of those online boutiques that have a an array of chic and trendy clothing and accessories that will not break the bank. Zaful and I worked together to write a review of my experience with their website. For this Zaful Review,  I placed an order for a crossbody bag for $20.00 and a large, soft scarf for $15.49 and within days, I received my package- which was fabulous.  After all, there is nothing better than an expedited shipping for an order!

From this trendy online website, I selected a light brown bag and ultra large pink and taupe scarf that would be perfect for the Fall season.  A girl can never have enough crossbody bags and scarves, and I was excited to add more to my collection.  When I received my bag, I immediately in love with this crossbody bag with metal ring. It is the perfect size for running around town and roomy enough to carry my essentials, like my Iphone, wallet, lipstick and many more. My scarf is also lovely and will keep me warm and toasty in the upcoming chilly days and nights of Southern California.  I have already washed this scarf and it washed really well, looking the same as when it first arrived.  One my biggest concerns with anything I buy online is the possibility of the items not washing well.  Of course I was ecstatic to learn that my new scarf looks just like new after one wash.  I really enjoyed my experience with my Zaful Review and I plan on ordering more pieces from this stylish site.

Gamiss Review

by Lesley Kim

Hi everyone! Now that the weather is finally cooling down, I am excited to take out my coats, jacket, boots and scarves from the back of my closet. Fall is my favorite season of all time, probably because of the style associated with this season. Living in California, where it is usually sunny and warm but cool in the evenings, one can never have too many jackets and scarves for layering. I was pretty excited when Gamiss asked me to choose some items from their website to style for my blog and post a Gamiss Review. I selected the chic faux leather jacket and ultra large scarf that is perfect for this cool season. My order arrived within 3 days, which I thought was extremely fast and efficient. My faux leather jacket, which cost $28.49, is super comfortable and will be perfect for our weather here in California. If you need a jacket to wear on top of a sweater, I recommend getting a size up. Mine is a size Small, which is perfect to layer on top of light clothing, but a little tight for a thick sweater. The large soft scarf I received from Gamiss is one of my favorite accessory. It is large enough to wear as a shawl or as an oversized scarf, and for $11.70, it is a steal!

Sunny Day in November

by Lesley Kim

Hi everyone!  I took a hiatus from social media and I have to say it was a much needed break.  I am not really into social media to begin with, and would merely dabble in Facebook to check up on friends and Instagram to show a little bit of my blog. This month however, I really went off of social media, and I have to say,  I really enjoyed life much better… And I don’t think I am going back either.   How do you feel about social media?

Anyway, it has been sunny and warm here in Calabasas with temperatures in the low 80’s.  It almost felt like summer, and today, I am dressed like it is summer.  My romper is super adorable, which I bought from Nordstrom Rack.  I am too lazy to look for the brand, but I will add it once I do find out.  My gladiator sandals are by Bucco, sunnies from Kenneth Cole, and my lovely bracelet by Pandora.

Halloween by Rosegal

by Lesley Kim

Hi everyone!! Halloween is just around the corner and I have been getting ready for this ghoulish day by accessorizing my wardrobe and home with some Halloween themed items. Rosegal sent me some adorable Halloween items that I wanted to share with you today.  I received 2 well made, Halloween throw pillow covers which go perfectly with my typical home decor because of their neutral colors. The throw pillow covers are adorable, and has a linen texture that I love.  For less than $8 a piece, I think these throw pillows are a bargain that will add that special Halloween touch to your home.

I also received a super cute Halloween Mermaid Style blanket that will be perfect for the cool days of Fall, and of course, Halloween!  This unique knit blanket is on sale at Rosegal  for $19.


Another item I received is this Halloween pullover sweater, on sale for  $13.93.  This is a cozy sweater that I plan on wearing even after Halloween.  The texture is soft and the size Small is perfect for wearing over leggings and a pair of leather boots.
