Beading Fest

Hello Bloggers,

It's been a while since I have posted a blog but I have been busy with a lot of changes in my life. I finally feel like I am in a good place for growth. 

This past weekend I went into a beading rampage it started off by me admiring this jewelry book my mom purchased (by the way she is a jewelry designer as well) by Stephanie A. Wells called, "The Earring Style Book." Wells is a well-known jewelry designer from San Diego, CA, her california-based company 'Double Happiness Jewelry' has been a success and her designs are worn by celebrities. Check her book out at your local bookstore or any borders & barnes & noble.

All my creations come from Wells book, her designs really inspired me to learn how to make jewelry. If you've ever thought of creating some of your own jewelry this is a great book that teaches you the basic techniques to familiarizing yourself with gemstones.

More of my IslaChic Designs coming your way soon.

Their's nothing like a California orange!

Hello Folks,

I was going to post about my trip to Cali sooner rather than later but I guess my laziness just got to me. I practically live in the airport now since I just came back from Cali about a week ago and this weekend I will be Florida. I had a great time in Cali spent some good times with my mother and brother, I turned 23 and discussed a lot about life.
Passing over the Rocky Mountains in Denver, Colorado.

My bomb salad and sauteed mushrooms I made!

San Francisco!

The best cappuccino I ever had!

Osha's, great little Thai restaurant.


I love this Teahouse!

Talk about decadent...

Trends/ Susan Woo

Make a Statement, GO!

Spring is here which means warm weather, lighter clothes to put on, and the occasional cold chilly day don't put your sweaters and jackets away just yet. I wish I could pull off this pixie cut this young woman has, it just adds to her youthful look. Her style is simple, playing very well with combining neutrals and grays and the oversized clutch bag is a nice touch. 

◈ This spring/summer go for a bold red lip and light on the eyes.

◎ Prints are in right now floral, exotic, abstract you name it, go for a simple dress with an unique print. ◎

▲ Susan Woo | New York-based fashion designer ▼

She is all about creating modern pieces with a classic touch and what's not to love as she uses eco-friendly fabrics. 
"Woo's mission is to show the most discerning fashionista that being "environmental" means creating the highest quality product. "

ELECtronica, EleCTrionica, ElectrOnICA!

I've currently been in this electro-pop mood which is also transcending into my style of clothes. Artist I am listening to and loving at the moment are Hot Chip, Chromeo, and an oldie Daft Punk.

Take it in | Hot Chip---ahh, makes me want to dance every time I hear this song!

Fancy Footwork | Chromeo

Aerodynamic | Daft Punk
