Look: Ball and Chain

Rumi Neely x RVCA dress, H&M harness/necklace, Jeffrey Campbell wedges, wayferers

Ever since I saw Rumi of fashiontoast wearing this cut-up shoulder bodycon dress last year, I knew I had to have it. I waited patiently through the fall/winter/spring for this dress. The moment she said it was available at RVCA, it was an instant click, buy, bought.

Look: Fallen Soldier

Married to the Mob hoodie, Old Navy jacket, A&F cutoffs, H&M tights, Aldo boots

Took the bf's bro and his kids out to some scenic parts of the city, mainly around the Golden Gate Bridge. We discovered abandoned barracks and what we assume were old prisons. It was sorta fitting that I was wearing my military jacket. Some of the buildings though just felt eery. Even though we were there in broad daylight. It's like you could feel a weird presence there. Really awesome. And creepy.

I swear the weekends are just flying by.. Luckily I have these at my desk to keep me going.. that and consuming copious amounts of matcha green tea that I swear is keeping more alert and focused throughout the day.

Saucy Minx

Uri and I had been dying to get Minx manicures since we found out about them a month ago. We decided to do this as one of our last hangouts before she leaves for Sin City. We picked the funkiest "stickers" we could find and were impressed by how awesome they turned out.

Uri = leopard print
me = some black and white cross hatch pattern

The receptionist told me M.I.A chose the same crosshatch pattern too. Awesome. She's just as crazy as me.

My Pretty...

Memorial weekend was great because the weather was gorgeous and there was much food to be had. Went to a couple BBQ's and had an impromptu backyard BBQ because going to Napa on Sunday was ridiculous. Le boyfriend's mom and I created this wonderful concoction made of a little bit of muscato, sparkling water, and pureed watermelon. The fizz was just lovely when the watermelon was poured in, and it was such a refreshing drink on a warm day. Much better than the margarita we were both craving. We call it, the ZenTess (a combination of both our names).

Then I made a cake, an Angel Lush cake to be exact. First I made a batch for my friend Kat's birthday last week, and when I realized how easy and quick it was, I decided to make another one for a potluck at work. I figured fruity is the way to go since summer is just around the corner. Plus, I was dying to try a new dessert recipe.

I love this iPhone App so much. It makes any picture look more interesting than it is.

1. The pin I received for doing Disneyland's "Give a Day, Get a Day Free". I loved being an "Honorary VoluntEAR!" Also, a pen I made at Disneyland as well. That Irwin bought for me. Love him..
2. A 2-in-1 plush panda I managed to convince Irwin to get for me (or was it Uri...). Did I mention that I love him? It's a pillow that can be folded in half so it looks like a fat lil panda. Oh the stupid things that Irwin helps me indulge in.
3. My bestie that is moving to Arizona, and our last pic together before I see her again for her bachelorette. Sadness.
4. Ai and I at Lot 46. Where we found St. Germaine. And where we found a woman with the worst boob job ever.
