British Columbia, Here I Come...

Years ago, whilst living in Los Angeles, I aspired to do a extensive tour of the West Coast.

 I envisioned myself taking a train from Southern California all the way up to Vancouver, British Columbia. Unfortunately, my dream trip was too cost prohibitive.

At the time, I decided to parse out my West Coast travel by taking short trips throughout California.

Fast forward to 2014, and I have finally booked a trip to Vancouver, British Columbia by way of Seattle. I can't wait to finally experience this city.

Divatosity Fashion: Hand Painted Charm

This necklace has been on loan from my mother's jewelry box since 1992. This necklace has seen me through me 4 colleges, 5 states, a few boyfriends, and countless events. Originally, I promised to return this necklace to my mother after college graduation.
Yet for some reason, I cannot bear to part with this necklace. The vibrant colors of this necklace glam up even the most conservative attire.
