Finally back home after our long L.A. getaway. Everything seems to be the way we left the house – messy. 😀 I usually try to clean before we take off, so it’s nice to come back to a clean home. This time, I didn’t have the time 😉 And for now, my vacuum cleaner can still wait a little longer, since after returning home I haven’t been feeling so great. But I gathered my strength enough to get some update for the blog 😉 Feels like it’s been forever since my last post!!

Now that I’ve been going through our pictures and it looks like we had a nice and relaxing vacation 😉 We didn’t plan much what we were going to do. First couple days we had commitments and after that we just went with the flow. We stayed at the Huntington Beach Hyatt Regency just right by the beach. Oh how I miss that and all the other beautiful beaches! On the weekdays, the beaches were pretty much empty, but when the weekend came they were packed. So what we did, we explored a lot of different beaches, had pool coma in the mornings, a lot of good food and we squeezed a hike or two in there too. (Does Disney day count as a hike?:D) In overall it felt really good to get some new surroundings and of course it feels good to be back home! Not to mention how much I missed my puppy!

We rented bikes and biked to the New Port village. Probably one of the highlights of our trip!

Alright. Here’s what I have for now. More to come 😉

Packing for L.A.

posted in: Traveling, Wardrobe | 0
So, here I’m finally packing for our L.A Getaway!
Oh how I’ve been waiting for this trip .. I started my packing on the weekend so that I don’t have to rush everything together tonight! But now, I’m getting paranoid over if I packed this or that already? And I have to double check 😀 So, basically I could have started packing this morning. Oh well.

01

 

Here’s what I’m planning to wear for the flight… It’s a short flight so just simply something loose enough and to keep me warm. I’m always cold on an airplane! If I would be flying to Finland or somewhere far far away I would be pretty much wearing warm and loose pyjamas + tons of layers on top of that 😀 I like to be super comfy while flying long distance.

02

Jeans – Zara
Basic White tank top – H&M
Sweater – American Eagle
Flats – H&M (these were on sale for $7!!!)
Watch – Michael Kors
Scarf – Louis Vuitton

I don’t want to promise any posts while I’m gone since I really want to enjoy our Vacay. Luckily Instagram exists and it is so easy and quick to post “updates” so you can follow me there!

Alright, gotta go back to double checking and finishing my packing! And I also have a lot of other stuff what needs to be taken care of before we take off!

Have a Great Week!

 

At My Desk

posted in: Decor, Guest Room | 0

Hello there! Did anyone feel last night’s earthquake here in Vancouver area??! I didn’t feel a thing! We live up in the mountain now so I don’t know if that has something to do with it, that we didn’t feel anything. But when we were living in a high-rise building at the sea level, we had one earthquake back then that I felt. Nothing big but still, even the thought of it feels scary. I hope there won’t be too big aftershocks after last night.

Alright.. Here’s my updated “laptop” station in our guest room … How does it look? 😉 It turned out to be very girly and bright 🙂

As you can see, I don’t have a laptop anymore! We’ve had such a bad luck with our computers lately. Especially me. Our both computers broke, at the s a m e time. We’ve been in this mode where everything breaks.. not just here and there, but the same time! 😀 Very frustrating and time consuming. I’ve being using our laptop what is also my hubby’s work laptop. And that means that if he needs it, I’m without one 😀 Our office computer has been working on and off what has made the blogging experience very frustrating .. I’ve always had to rush to get my things done before it shuts down 😀 Until now since it decided to shut down completely. Anyways .. I’ve always shared my computers, I’ve never really had my stuff in one place. I think now or never was the perfect time to get my own computer.

My plan was to get MacBook Pro, but after a long thinking process and research I decided that I would get more out of a computer with iMac. I’ve had this computer about over a month now and I’ve been very pleased. 🙂

Thursday Toodles! 

 

Easter Weekend

posted in: Bedroom, Decor, Life, Spring, Westie Life | 0

How was your Easter Weekend? Mine was lazy and relaxed in overall! We didn’t spend that much time in outdoors that I hoped.. But I think that’s ok 🙂 Sometimes it’s nice to just be and do nothing really. Do you agree? 😉 Well I wasn’t completely lazy – I got some chairs for our Patio! It’s still unfinished and ongoing project but I was happy to at least get the chairs there. I have to post about it later!

So, I’ve had some free time to catch up with my “reading” .. watch a lot of movies and just chilling. I wanted some colour in the bedroom for the summer and I found this DKNY throw from Home Sense! I love how soft and warm the throw is. And this soft raspberry colour is one of my favourites! I love it!

My throw expert wants to come and test it out too 😀 Whenever I take my throw out she’s right there offering some warm cuddles and company! And she likes to sleep under the throw .. and I mean the whole dog under there. I don’t get it how she gets air .. but she seems to enjoy it.

“If I close my eyes, it makes me even more convincing and vulnerable looking … “  She has a couple of these tricks in her sleeves.
