Oatmeal Soap and Vitamin D Supplement
Side note: I have been using Trader Joe’s Oatmeal soap for years now. I feel refreshed and certainly moisturized after every used. You can purchase it for about $1.69 for two bars, talk about great natural skin care for a bargain!
Vitamin D Supplement
(usually combined with Calcium or Magnesium supplements as seen in photo above)
Vitamin D can be found in small amounts in a few foods, including fatty fish such as herring, mackerel, sardines and tuna. To make vitamin D more available, it is added to dairy products, juices, and cereals that are then said to be “fortified with vitamin D.” But most vitamin D – 80% to 90% of what the body gets – is obtained through exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D can also be made in the laboratory as medicine.

As you all probably read on my last blog post, March is my birthday month. In the attempt to celebrate my entrance to thee quarter-life —- I wanted to purge on artistic projects not only as a present for myself but to also show appreciation to everyone who has supported and show me love! To show my appreciation and to also showcase my passion for passion, it has led me to create my first ever Look Book!
If you guys are not familiar with what a look book is, this of it as an outfit diary! Someone like me will put together outfits and show where the fashion items came from. Some people take these look books very seriously, as per sponsorship reasons or to make themselves more “branded” as for me…I simply love dressing up and love sharing it with you guys. I have been getting lots of comments on Instagram and suggestions from peers as well thinking “that it would be a good idea” for me to try creating my very own look book.
So please go ahead and click the link above before you refer to the outfit details below. Enjoy! :)
PS Right below this blog’s tagline/biography is a “COMMENT ME” tab, please leave me some feedback. Tell me which outfit is your favorite or you can also simply SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel and we can converse via YouTube comments.
Again, thanks for watching!
Look #1: LA in the Bay
Disclaimer: This is a very similar outfit as my Birthday Attire as these picture were taken the same exact day but AFTER my haircut :)
Top: Los Angeles top from Ross Stores
Bottom: skinny Jeans from an unknown boutique from LA
Clutch: Gifted from Philippines (“Baguio City” is where my sister and baby niece currently resides)
Watch: Film Watch by Casio
Shoes: Madelline Cut-Out Booties from Ross Stores
Look # 2: Red Glam, Red Glam
Since the last outfit was very laid-back, I wanted to show you guys a more glamorous outfit. By pulling a bold color and a bold print together, this made my over-all outfit very trendy and definitely head turning. Paired with a neutral tone shoes, it gives this outfit more of a classy touch. I am wearing my (all-time favorite designer) Vera Wang pumps that I pretty much wear at every event I wanted to look classy and mature. Lastly, the oversized black envelope clutch ties this outfit all together with the black matching the pants’ tribal print!
This would be perfect for nights that you would like to go out but do not necessarily want to wear a dress. The bottoms that I am wearing in this outfit is a cross between velvet leggings and a jogger. The velvet texture of the tribal leggings also makes this outfit very wearable. It also has pockets where you can conveniently tuck away IDs or lipstick for each retouching.
Top: red off-shoulder crop top from Tobi.com
Bottom: tribal Leggings from Ross Stores
Heels: nude pumps by Vera Wang
Bag: black envelope design clutch from H&M
Watch: Film Watch by Casio
Look # 3: Floral Kimono Chic
This last look is very spring forward. It is definitely more wearable on a casual day like say going to the movies or grabbing coffee with friends. This outfit definitely embodies the current “Californian” trends at the moment: 1) folded up denim 2) cut out heels 3) floral kimono 4) layers of arm candy. This outfit shout out “I am girly and i like it” so I love this outfit very much just because it is down-to-earth, timely and needless to say - very California!

I & V Chain Necklace by MD13jewelry
I requested a customized order for this necklace and was pleasantly surprised how fast the response was from the shop owner. I ended up getting “I & V”, my boyfriend’s initial and mine. I actually thought it was pretty clever and metaphoric as well that Vivek and I are both interested in clinical research and IV fluids are predominantly used for rehydration, therapeutic purposes…essentially to bring people back to “life” in hospitals. I think there’s a hidden meaning to that :)
The necklace came out very unique, eloquent and just plain lovely. I know that I will be now wearing this every single day. I love the subtle and vintage font of the engraving as well. There’s something so sentiment too about getting a handmade jewelry, it just makes it even more special…knowing that someone just spent a little bit more time on your requested piece. I am so glad I stumbled upon your shop on Etsy! Also, what better way to ensure the rarity of this necklace than by sending me the engraving template! I love the little keychain she made out of it as well. Overall, this is my new favorite jewelry piece now. I am so happy.
With regards to packaging and delivery, I can instantly tell that MD13jewelry took the time to color coordinate her wrapping (all black!). A sweet hand-written note was included along with again this free gift and business cards. I think it shows true passion and professionalism when businesses take time and make their products presentable with proper branding. This will also be perfect to gift to friends and family. No need for extra gift wrapping!
Looking forward, I also think this necklace will be perfect in the spring and summer time when I tend to layer many chain necklace to add to my favorite bohemian look. This would go well with any beaded or gold accent jewelry. As festival season is right around the corner, I will definitely make use of this in my outfits. It is also not flashy or unprofessional looking. It is very subtle and perfect to wear to the office or even a formal event.
