Just got back from my Miami trip a shade darker, Miami was beautiful despite the tropical weather of hot + humid + rain . First for many memories, walking on soft white sand beaches, stepping into the Atlantic Ocean, strolling down Miami Beach, soaking in the Cuban influences of Espanola Way, eating authentic Cuban food, mesmerized by natural everglades, and the highlight of my trip was my 5-day cruise to Bahamas from the Port of Miami.
If you’re a superhero strife lover like I am, you probably fantasized yourself as a superhero. You in that killer uniform, cool/catchy name, and possessing ultimate super powers. As youngling, I’ve had these creative thoughts ever since I watched my first Batman vs. Robin (George Clooney version). My super powers have upgraded as each superhero movie came out including only the good not the bad.
Living in DTLA (downtown LA) there are a large amount of skilled street arts in almost every corner. While visiting my best friends building I stumbled upon this masterpiece. Captain America Civil War was painted on the wall!! It was pure epic masterpiece! Not just one superhero but a whole squad of them. I was overcome with acute nostalgia of my superhero wishing days and shot this look.
Festival season en route! Boho season is upon us, exuding strong force of the flower crowns, fringes, tassel-embellishments, kimonos, cut off shorts, rompers, and moderate flares.

Over the Knee Boots (OTK) + Thigh Highs are the ultimate classic fall trend that boosts confidence and sex appeal possibly influenced by Pretty Woman. The shoe trend for celebs & fashionistas alike are OTK boots seen everywhere and anywhere, from the streets, red carpet to runways. Boots elevate any outfit and adds that extra sexiness we all need at times. Dressed up or down these boots will add that extra oomph in your daily #ootd and make you feel & look fabulous.

I decided to purchase the infamous Stuart Weitzman 50/50boots as an investment piece that I would love forever & ever…In homage I have curated a look book to showcase different silhouettes with my Stuart Weitzman 50/50 Over-the-Knee (OTK) boots. 95% of the clothes were purchased per “thehalaway” from great sale deals by Zara , during my bi-annual sweep held for their huge sale they have per season change mid June & end of year. All the stores I featured in this post have sales still going online + in stores, V recommend taking advantage while it lasts!! Look book photoshoot location was at West Hollywood on Sunday Funday!
Quality over Quantity. Splurges are allowed when investing in quality pieces that will yield more uses/love than a one-nighter but may break the wallet >.<
I invested in the one thing that any fashionista would agree with. A great pair of classic leather boots that will be stylish yet comfortable to wear anywhere. Within reach, invest in a classic style boot in the best leather possible and you will have a lifelong friend.
Last day of 2015! In the blink of and eye another year went bye! Reflecting on how much I have progressed, there’s always a weird feeling at the end of the year. Reminiscing the highs and lows during the past year thinking if I could have done better in any way…
No matter the outcome of past decisions, nothing positive comes out from discouraging yourself. Stop wasting time dwelling on what we should’ve, could’ve, would’ve done. Transformation begins with reflection, we learn our personal limits and set our mark for ourselves.
A new year means NEW goals, wishes, hopes, ambitions, promises, and resolutions you set for yourself to improve personal growth. We live our lives by how we determine it.
There’s always something good that comes out of every experience. Good times become good memories. Bad times become good lessons. You can never lose, you only grow from life.

2015was a year of milestones for me. I had my share of up and downs which helped me mature for the better. Broke out of my comfort zone and challenged myself for bigger & better. Highlight of this year has to be the birth of my blog which I can say is now my personal space. I pledge to enhance and cultivate my blog! I can only go up from here #wayupIfeelblessed
