COACHELLA IS HERE! & I'm still in New York.
Attending Coachella in California has been on my bucket list for years now and every year I get excited, even if I'm not attending. My favorite part would be the fashion, OBVIOUSLY.

Style icon, Vanessa Hudgens, is the perfect inspiration for a coachella outfit. Even when she's not at coachella, her outfits are perfect. Here are my faves from her and other cute outfits.

Looks like I need to go shopping for some boho chic this summer!

Are you music festival ready?!

It's spring semester. Spring break is over and there's 6 weeks left of this brutal semester. The only thing on my mind is summer and what my plans consist of. Last year was probably the best year of my life because I accomplished so much and discovered myself. I really pushed my limits, I went to five countries, lived by myself in a foreign country, went to a music festival, entered into the modeling world, finished my first year of college, etc etc. anyway, I want round two but I want to achieve more. Every year should be better and the last. 

I'm dying to volunteer abroad in a hospital or an orphanage. My top four destinations are Bali, Africa, Brazil  and/ or Australia! 

I recently started following a new IG travel and fashion blogger, friendinfashion.

It's about time we say goodbye to this long, brutal winter. I'm so ready for april shower, may flowers, and sunshine. Which also means I'm more than ready to trade my chunky knits and hues of blue, gray, and black for some pastels and maxi skirts.

Here's my must have list of new trends this season!
This outfit is one of my favorites, those pants though.

A white ensemble with a pop of color is a definite this spring!

 Adore this cropped top with this skirt because of the structure. It's so polished yet edgy.
Look out, classic denim skirt is coming back. Cop this one from

A great maxi dress is always a must, but this hat makes it a 10.

First of all, this post is entirely spontaneous and personal. I'm not too sure as to why I'm posting this but these are my current thoughts and the best outlet for me. These are thoughts flowing through my brain and I'm just jotting them down as they come to me, so my paragraphs don't flow and certainly don't have any organization

Whats on my mind?

.... I really don't want to lay in my bed right now but I'm going to anyway.
.... A macaron sounds delicious right about now.

.... After these two hectic weeks, I've learned a lot about myself but I'm also more confused about who I am and what I'm doing. This past week was a breaking point... I surpassed self destruction and I'm still picking up the shattered pieces. While doing so, I'm evaluating my life- the progress I've made, my goals, my aspirations but it's funny because in my point of view all I'm doing is failing. College is supposed to be the experience where you find yourself and I see myself going through the same loop I did in high school. I'm testing the waters in a sense but I still feel trapped in a bubble... hoping that the bubble will once pop.

.... I want my summer plans to be set in stone so I can look forward to something.

.... I don't feel confident or proud of anything I've accomplished so far, partly because they aren't accomplishments to me. I still feel like I don't know my calling. You know how some people say they were born to do something or just know what their place is? Well I have no idea. I just know that the life I'm currently living in is not the life I'm meant to live. I know that what I want is much bigger and different than attending school in upstate New York, earning mediocre grades, spending my weekends working at a department store or watching Netflix, and sitting in my dark, lonely dorm questioning my current routine and life style.  I like fashion. But I don't think I'd go to school for fashion. I love medicine but studying it? I enjoy traveling ... great thats an expensive hobby and everybody loves that. I like reading. I like new experiences and spontaneity. What am I supposed to do with those? I have no idea. According to societal norms, I should attend University, study to do well, work a part time job so I'm not a completely broke college kid, go to frat parties on the weekend, eventually get a degree in a stable field and then enter the work force. Now all of that wouldn't be so bad if I knew that my major was my all or nothing. It wouldn't be so bad if studying paid off, it wouldn't be awful if I went to a school in a location that was more full of life. If I could spend a semester studying abroad, I could totally handle it.

... The most difficult part of this is that nobody understands, not even me.

... I want to pack my bags and go on an adventure, maybe to Africa and volunteer in an orphanage. I feel like that would give me peace and determination.

... I just want to be genuinely proud of myself once in my life and I want my parents to feel that way about me too.

... I'm tired of being miserable.

... Work in a few hours does not sound like fun.

Obviously, I had to make my way to Santa Monica for a few reasons; 1. I love beaches! 2. Third street promenade means heaven. 3. Urth Caffe was a must. More on that later. 4. Venice beach is walking distance. 5. There's an In N Out burger! 

The scenery at Santa Monica was gorgeous, my pictures don't do justice!  It was the best feeling to lay in the sand and take it all in... To know that it's okay to relax and that the simple things are the best in life. Every once and a while I forget to enjoy the ride and that's exactly what I did. I also got enough sun to make up for my vitamin d deficiency... Winning! 

So Santa Monica is a worth a visit, but it's not the best beach. There's prettier beaches out there, try Malibu! I want to go to San Diego next because la jolla is just

When in California, you have to make a pit stop in Hollywood especially if its your first time. So I did.
You wouldn't believe what happened...
           I hopped on a metro from Downtown LA to Hollywood and Highland. I was traveling solo, my best friend had work and I couldn't pass up another day of traveling. Anyway, so I got to my stop after twenty minutes of staring at people on the metro. I started to walk to Hollywood and Vine, what I was really looking for was a restroom. Soon enough, I found a Starbucks and hopped in line. I like to talk, so naturally I talked to the woman in front of me and she easily figured out I was a tourist( not that my Nikon didn't give that away already). I asked her what she recommended in Hollywood, it's always better to ask a local. She gave me a few suggestions and then casually asked me if I wanted to be her +1 to see Kate Winslet receive her star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I just looked at her for  a moment and was like.. whaaaaat. I only just met her but I obviously said yes. So... I met the whole cast of Divergent and got a picture with Shailene Woodley. HOW COOL IS THAT. For the record, Shai is super nice and even prettier in person.

That was my highlight of the day. The next was when a guy asked if he could have a picture of me. He thought I was famous, I almost said yes.

Next, I went on a tour because I was tired from walking and I figured I would make new friends on a tour and kill 2 hours seeing things I wouldn't otherwise see. I made friends with 3 Au Pairs from Europe working in the US. We obviously bonded because we talked about our horrible experiences being au pairs.
