Lazy days & cool weather are the best kind of days that call for #Homegating instead of tailgating, who wants to leave the comfort of their own home to watch the game, when @farmrichsnacks makes it super affordable & easy to feed friends & family; more finger foods & the simple recipe to these delicious homestyle meatballs you can find #OnTheBlog thanks to the true MVP's of game day @farmrichsnacks & @drpepper \\ #Sponsored #HomegatingHero

I used to think that yellow and gold (and blonde hair) didn't look good with my Asian skin tone. Now, I wear all three at once #zerofsgiven. . I'm all about the layered necklaces rn.

If I could, I'd eat nachos EVERY DAY. But the way my new lifestyle is set up, I can't. I won't deprive myself of things I enjoy but I definitely won't over do it. I'll probably make some the next time we have company. Side note: I used @doritos this time around. They were SO GOOD!

Let the weekend therapy begin! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
๐Ÿ‘‹ Hi, Iโ€™m Vanessa, and here are three things you should know about me: โ€” 1. Yesterday I watched โ€œGirls Just Want to Have Funโ€ for what was likely the hundredth time in my life. Other dance movies Iโ€™ve seen an embarrassing number of times (but Iโ€™m not embarrassed): Center Stage, Flashdance, A Chorus Line, Dirty Dancing, Footloose, Breakinโ€™, Saturday Night Fever โ€” 2. I go to the beach to clear my head. I have no scientific evidence that the ocean can solve problems, but the ocean can solve problems. โ€” 3. My first gallery wall (circa 1988) featured New Kids on the Block photos I found in Teen Beat magazine. The centerpiece was the Jordan Knight poster I bought at the mall. โ€” Tell me: Did you ever have a boy band crush as a kid? Who was your fave?
In a hammock, Iโ€™m much better at staring at trees than reading books. I intended to read but instead I just thought about what steps had been taken this week for #myOTjourney and where life may be going. . . 1. Thursday I shadowed an OT who specializes in Early Intervention (infants-3 years). It was my first time seeing occupational therapy in action and I canโ€™t wait for the many Thursdays to come. Lots of driving, asking questions, and playing with kiddos. . . 2. I had to urgently and suddenly get over to LA Harbor College this morning to solve some registration problems. I was super nervous I might miss the window for enrolling. . . 3. Ended up enrolling in the classes I needed! Plot twist: Both anatomy classes at Harbor were full & closed, oh no. Luckily, I get to drive out to West LA to take a class at another campus! I have to drive further, but thatโ€™s ok because it means Iโ€™m on track to apply to OT school!

Much needed downtime and sweet treats because I'd like to think I deserve it here and there! ๐Ÿ˜‹ enjoyed a day off from work and spent time snacking, baking and decorating these #homemade Snowflake Cookies. In the season of giving, we wrapped up our cookies in #holiday packaging for our neighbors โ„๏ธ We had to make two batches to keep some of these buttery sugar sweet airy cookies with the kids favorite sprinkles for us! Paper Mart and Chef'd curated this fun #12daysofsweets holiday box in collaboration to provide all the festive @papermart packaging and all the cookie making ingredients from @chefd making gifting so easy this holiday season! ๐ŸŽ #dasrozofoodie #papermart #chefd

Fully missing this afternoon spent with the greatest photographer (in my heart ๐Ÿ˜œ), my man. . He's not a photographer, but he makes up for it by letting me micro-manage the shoots, making funny jokes to get a smile out of me and sometimes requesting his own photo sesh in which he always ends up posing like a Playmate from the 80's. Just the gift that keeps on giving ๐Ÿ˜› . . . ___________________________________________ #socallife #socalmodel #socalblogger #socallifestyle #socalphotography #beachphotoshoot #beachphotography #venicebeach #lamodel #lablogger #losangelesmodel #losangelesblogger #outfitinspo #brunettesofinstagram #outfitoftheday #outfitideas #styleinspo #styleblogger #styleinspiration

As we are getting ready to celebrate Christmas tomorrow, because I won't be in Montreal for Christmas for the first time ever, I wanted to share a Holiday-y picture, and this is the only one I had with something red. . It makes me kinda happy too, because it serves as a reminder that the Holidays are a state of mind and you absolutely don't have to conform to the Chritmas-tree-and-presents-in-a-sweater standards set by society. . Happy Holidays โ™ฅ๏ธ๐ŸŽ„ . .

Ummm YESSS, thank God it's Friday, because though not intentionally honestly this has been one week for the books, even today has started out pretty challenging, I'm pretty much ready to ignore all problems & just enjoy the magic & cozyness of the holidays!!

This week held a lot of highs and lows. Hell, this YEAR held a lot of highs and lows. Through the lows, I've started to learn to give myself grace and really work to not play the victim. It's so easy so fall into a pit of despair and shame that you basically get to the bottom of that black hole and you have no idea how you're going to climb out of it. With a bit of perseverance, you get back up and feel the high of knowing you did it. But then you feel wobbly again and your knees feel weak and you feel like you're going to trip back into a black hole. You feel like everyone is pushing you closer and closer to the edge. It's a struggle not to feel like the victim. It's a challenge not to feel like someone else is to blame. Look for the hands reaching out to grab you. Embrace the arms out open waiting to hold you. You won't fall again if you let someone help you.
Been loving everyoneโ€™s beanie game so I decided to bring mine out ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป even though itโ€™s kinda warm in OC & everyone else has snow โ„๏ธ Iโ€™m having a movie day because Iโ€™m still sick, if yโ€™all know of any good movies let me know! #liketkit @liketoknow.it http://liketk.it/2tSF7
โ€ขHello My Name is Allieโ€ข There are a lot of new faces around here lately so I thought it would be a good time to introduce myself with #fivefactsaboutme โœจ 1. I am a 24 year old SoCal native. Iโ€™ve always said I could never live somewhere that was too far from the ocean! There is something about sitting with your toes in the sand listening to the crashing waves or enjoying a yummy meal on the waterfront that just makes me so happy ๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒŠ 2. In June of this year my high school sweetheart and my better half and I tied the knot in front of all of our family and friends and danced the night away in celebration ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ•บ๐ŸปBonus Fact: he was 15 and I was 16 when we started dating so we had to be dropped off at dates by our parents ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ 3. By night I am really enjoying this new world of blogging but by day I am a nanny and a full time student working towards my Masters in Special Education Teaching Credential (I graduate in May! ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ“š) 4. Itโ€™s hard to tell in pictures but I am 5โ€™11โ€ and I love being tall! This wasnโ€™t always the case but now Iโ€™m always wearing heels and donโ€™t mind that the hubby and I are usually the tallest people in the room (except around our families that is where being 6ft and above is the norm! ๐Ÿ˜) 5. I love food and cooking! My happy place when I am stressed is in the kitchen (usually making something Italian aka lots and lots of pasta! ๐Ÿ) My favorite item in my kitchen is my red @kitchenaidusa mixer that my mom got Zach and Me as a housewarming gift. In fact I decorated our entire kitchen with red accents because of it! โค๏ธ โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #fivefacts #aboutme #introduction #blogger #lifestyleblogger #beautyblogger #styleblogger #instablogger #lifestyle #style #beauty #flashesofdelight #choosejoy #socal #socalblogger #foodie #tallgirls #beachbum #futureteacher #gradstudent #wifey #discoverunder1k #discoverunder10k #blondiesbeautyblog
