Cupid's Chokehold

2.14.2013

Hope you all are having a lovely Valentines Day/Single Awareness Day! (: My kickstarted with a gorgeous and elegantish brunch at the Tea Room with some beautiful people I absolutely love! It was extremely fun to spend some quality time with the girlfriends while quietly sipping chamomile flower or english breakfast tea out of ornate, oh-so-feminine floral cups while awkwardly attempting to follow the strict guidelines of etiquette.
The tea room channeled a magically enchanted, secret garden that grandmother's in statement hats and pastel skirts visited for their afternoon cup of tea. (They even had a precious teapot nightlight!)




Normally, I blandly slather nail polish onto my nails without a hint of intent to paint a design nonetheless a holiday-inspired one. Maybe it's my newfound romantic side of me, but I've actually been really excited for V-Day and decided to paint as much X's, O's and ♥'s I could squeeze onto each nail. 
I just had to snap a shot with my bubbly and incredibly outgoing friend and talented blogger, Aubrey Danae. She's such a sweetheart and she has really interesting posts! You should check out her blog (:






 Wearing: Nordstrom dress, F21 blazer, Gifted bag, Princess necklace, Steve Madden wedges
After countless cups of aromatic tea at a small, delightfully ornamented tea room, it was only evident that we would take a ton of pictures. It must've been pretty awkward and bizarre for the owner of the T room but being the fearless teenagers that we are, we took a montage of memorable pics. We all dressed up in light, highly feminine dresses and some of us primped our hair with romantic curls. 
After struggling to find the absolute perfect spot to get picture-worthy shots, Jacky and I went to an antique thrift shop near home called the Bargain Box and scavenged the place. At home, I finally decided to read my plastic-encased Teen Vogue issue and unwrapped the most adorable gift from Jacky ever! I love that girl (; 
I plan on watching a series of gushy, romantic movies while eating an unhealthy truckload of chocolate sweets and wearing my tacky Hello Kitty fleece jammies. Time to bring out the kleenex tissues! Hope all of will have/had a touching and fun-packed day whether it includes a lover or not xx

What were your plans today? (:

  15. This is such a great idea to go to this tea place with the girlfriends. I've never heard of Tea Room but I will check it out now because it looks so nice :) You always have really cute outfits. This one is super girly but sophisticated with your navy blazer and an exciting pop of color underneath from your dress! Love your posts and excited to come back for more :D

    1. Thank you! I actually would recommend it but the lady was a little bit mean to us.. I think it was probably because we were teenagers and unfortunately, stores don't ever take us seriously :/
      Thank you so much for your supersweet comments Jenny! They always brighten up my day so much :D
      Hope you're having a beautiful Sunday!
