Foodie Friday

800 Degrees Pizza
Pasadena, Los Angeles, CA

I've heard great things about the Westwood location when it first opened up there, but I never had a chance to try it since I'm never in that area. So when I heard that they were opening a new location in Pasadena, I knew I had to jump on that chance to finally get a taste of their pizza!

It's basically a pizzeria that lets you customize your pizza. They specialize in Neapolitan pizza, which tends to be thin and not super crispy, but apparently you can ask them to cook it a little longer or 'well done' for a crispy crust. I saw people eat it with forks and knives. 

The boyfriend and I chose a couple of their specialty pizzas since I had no idea where to start with making my own pizza. I'll leave that for the next time I go! Our pizzas were very flavorful and they use burrata mozarella cheese which is my favorite! Their topping selection is enormous and of such great quality so you're bound to make a delicious pizza even with the most obscure topping combinations! 






After our pizza meal, we went over to Intelligentsia for a late night cup of coffee. Yummm....

Embroidered in Black and White


I was recently contacted by Eshakti to write a post about their clothing and website. The way it works is that they offer a large variety of dresses that you can customize and fit you correctly. Being that I'm petite, this was very exciting for me! I often find it really hard to find clothing that fits me perfectly especially in length. 

They gave me a direct link to items that I can choose through their blogger program so that I can receive an item to post about. I did have some limitations as most of the dresses were not available, possibly because they have already sold out. 

I then decided on this black shift dress with white embroidery on it with two pockets in the front. It has short sleeves and is at a great length since I gave them my measurements and height. 


The material is adequate and washed well. I didn't see any shrinkage or damage from washing in a machine on delicate settings and cold water, but I'm usually very careful with washing any of my things. It is actually really comfortable and casual, which was what I wanted and I recommend this site for anyone that wants to make sure they get dresses that fit their body perfectly. Make sure you know your measurements and be as detailed as possible so that the dresses fit you as best as possible. They make your dress according to the measurements and information you put on the order form. 

Visit them at their website, www.eshakti.com, And get started!! :)




Thank you Eshakti for this great opportunity to try out your website and your clothing! And thank you for the lovely dress!

Olive Midi Dress


Being as petite as I am, it is such a huge and tedious task to find maxi or midi dresses. Of course, they are generally way too long on me and I need to spend the extra money on alterations. Recently, I found this amazing midi dress at a store at the Americana in Glendale called Kaitlin. I'm sure it's supposed to be at or a little below the knees for the average person, but it was a midi length for me! I thought it was perfect for days when I want to throw on something simple and loose. 



I fell in love with the feminine lace details along the neckline. It is also lined so I don't have to worry about it being too sheer, which tends to be a problem I encounter frequently as well. But nope, this is as simple as throwing on a dress and sandals!

Minimalism at a Wedding


I attended an intimate and small church wedding ceremony for my cousin the other weekend and due to my special time of the month, I really didn't feel like wearing a dress. So....I decided on the following outfit for a sleek and put-together look for church. I threw on my clean white peplum shirt and black pants which was the perfect amount of comfort. Add on some of my grey blue pointed heels and accessories and I've got myself a great minimalist outfit! 


The ceremony was sweet and simple. My cousin was a little nervous and I could tell since he dropped the ring a couple of times when he tried to put it on his wife's finger. Some might say it's not the best thing to have happen at your wedding but I'd like to say it'll make for great memories and stories! 

Just want to say 'congrats' to them and I wish them a life of happiness together!

Red and Denim in Atwater Village


The weather in LA has been on the hot side (as always) and it's probably strange for anywhere else, but here, Fall is still pretty warm. I'm enjoying the opportunity to wear shorts and comfy tees as much as I possibly could until I transition to fall outfits. But for now, you'll be seeing me in outfits like this almost everyday. Thank goodness for casual office attire and not much of a dress code!


I recently purchased this red slouchy tee from Tobi.com to throw in some more color and I love the feel of it! Definitely brings in some boldness to my wardrobe and is super easy to wear. Threw on some accessories and my go-to black flats from Elie Tahari and I'm ready for any day ahead of me!
