California Winters

Living in California, we don't get the four season's.  Where I live, it doesn't even snow-- ever.  I'd have to drive 3 hours away to feel snow if I had to.  It does get a little chilly, but not to where I'd need ear muffs, actual warm scarfs ( not jsut for fashion), and long pants.   I have been dying to buy an outfit I can wear a cute pair of tights, my boots, and some tweed shorts with a blouse and cardigan.
Here is what I am looking for :

Shorts in winter


I personally think its darling', but what do I know? What do you think?  I'm not much of a genius when it comes to fashion. Any styling tips for me? 
Where can I buy these babies for cheap ish?

I need to get a personal styler-- pronto!

Gifts For Him

Gifts For Him

It's that time of year again to start shopping for your friends, family, and your hunnie. I usually have my Christmas Shopping pretty much done by October/ November, but this year I am lagging! ( I blame it on the two jobs!)  So I have been doing alot of online browsing to save me some time when I hit the mall in the the next week. I have the hardest time shopping for guys-- because.. well they are guys.. and  they always say "I don't need anything.." So they leave it up to me to figure it out on my own.  Here are a few ideas if your stuck and don't know what to get your man!

Some Exciting News

Ok.. I have some really exciting news!!  


He proposed!
Yep, that's right! I now have a fiancé and couldn't be happier!  We aren't rushing to have the wedding right away. We are thinking about having it in a little less than two years.

Before I tell the story, here's a photo of the ring since that usually tends to be what everyone wants to see first anyways! 
I'm obsessed
So here's how it all went down.
Friday morning we planned on going down to the dog beach with our two fur babies. I "called in sick" to work to spend the day with him because it was his 25th Birthday. The weather was absolutely GORGEOUS.  Then I noticed he was acting weird, and randomly was about to say something then stopped. So of course I asked him what he was going to say.  He told me " Uh I forgot"

I was like " You dork, how did you forget what you were going to say to me just now.. nerd" 

So then about ten minutes later, he pulled a little box wrapped in Christmas paper { hhaha !}  out of the backpack and handed it to me and said "Here I got you something." 

I told him he shouldn't have gotten ME anything, after all it was HIS Birthday! I was so confused until I opened it and saw this amazing ring blinding me! It was absolutely gorgeous. Of course he said his whole " I don't wanna spend the rest of my life with anyone else but you, Will You Marry Me?"  and I'm pretty sure he said more than that but I couldn't stop staring at the ring.

and I said YES!
So we got it sized that day, and went out to dinner { Which is what I planned for his birthday anyways..} We went to this amazing restaurant on top of a hill with the most amazing view.  
So after dinner, we head home, and as soon as I walked upstairs to the kitchen, the lights turned on and everyone yelled "Surprise!" 

All my close friends were there to celebrate and congratulate me on the engagement! My fiance with the help of two close girlfriends planned this surprise! It was so cute! My girlfriend made me a sign with our engagement date and out names on it, and made some "love" punch and had snacks.  
Seriously was the cutest thing anyone has ever done for me and I couldn't ask for a better night. We headed down to the bars to continue our party so we didn't annoy our neighbors haha! 

Then, the next morning my FIANCE and I got our couples massage { Which is another thing I planned for his birthday } and it was so relaxing! IT was his first time getting a massage and let me tell you, he LOVED it! He couldn't stop talking about how amazing it was!

And here is the photo reel

 I look like i'm purring like a cat in this one... i'm odd

 Our attempt at forming a heart with our fingers... Semi Fail

Anyways enough about me, how was your weekend spent?
