Finally reunited with Imelda (from SunsetShutterBug) again. It's been almost an entire year since we linked up and taken pictures together, so it was only right that we'd spend an entire Saturday hanging out and catching each other up on this so called life. Much needed time with Imelda, for sure.

Photos taken by Imelda in SoMa.

You know those cheap ass t-shirts you find a souvenir shops that are like 2 for $15? Pretty much my souvenir when I took a spontaneous trip to NYfuckingC with my cousin over the summer. Best $7 I've spent this past summer.

Oldie, but goodie

Oh, hai! So my last post was in March. Really??? Life happens, I guess. Since turning 30, I started a new position about 3 months ago in the education field (I mentioned that I was looking for a career change, and I got it!), and I'm really enjoying my time at this new gig. Took a couple of trips to the East Coast to see my mom and other family members, and also took a trip to Mexico back in August. Besides that,  I've just been busy getting acclimated into my new role as an Enrollment Rep for this small college in the East Bay. Can't complain!

Halloween came and went, and we're officially in the holiday season now. And next thing you know, it'll be the end of 2015! So here's my attempt to finish off the year strong with a couple of posts I've had in store for, like, the longest time ever.

Photos taken @ the JEWseum in Downtown.

I honestly have no idea when these photos were taken, but all I know if I was packing some weight on here. I swear I shed a pound or 2 since these were taken. I love how clean black and white looks, and it's so easy to wear. Just threw a distressed denim jacket over myself to dress everything down, and so it wouldn't look like I was doing the most on this particular Sunday morning.

Speaking of doing the most, have you guys read that viral #ZolaAdventure story that was trending on Twitter. That entire story is the EPITOME of doing the most, and I loved every second of it. Should of been titled Zola's Ratchet Hoe-Venture in Miami.

Birthday Suit

Its been a week since my 30th birthday on March 19th. I have to say, after the initial "OMG, I'm officially in my 30's" freak out, I've come to realize: Aaliyah was right, y'all... Age ain't nothing but a number! *unless you were 14 years old like she was when she got married, of course*.

I'm really excited to pursue and achieve new goals coming into this new decade. It's funny how turning 21, I had a perception of where I wanted to be in life by the time I got to this age. And now that I'm *AT* this age, my priorities and goals have definitely changed. I'm starting off my 30th year on a positive note and great energy, and I'm definitely excited for what this new decade has in store!

Had an UH-mazing birthday, by the way. Had a date with my city during the day, and then a date with my boyfriend at night. And then a date with some drag queens at the Starlight Room, after celebrating with my friends during Sunday brunch. What more could I have asked for? Here's to another 30!

March 80's Baby

Pictures taken on location in the Inner Sunset.

It's officially March! We've been well into Pisces season (a.k.a. Fuck the rest of y'all seasons) but March is my birthday month, which lands on the 19th. Turning 30 years old in 19 days makes me both happy and bummed out. I still feel young at heart and in spirit, so exiting my 20's to enter a new box does make me kind of sad.

But on the other hand, my mentality has definitely matured over the years. I'm now at a point in my life where I want so much more for myself that I'm starting to work towards certain goals which I would like to accomplish coming into my 30th year. Funny how the older I get, the more motivated and ambitious I become. Wish I felt this way when I was turning 20... I would've been a millionaire chilling on a yacht with Bey, Jay, and Baby Blue right now or something. Oh well, let's hope that happens when I turn 40!

Snatch Up: He Pressing Me Like Button Downs On A Friday Night

Happy Friday! In celebration of TGIF's for everyone, here are some long sleeve button-downs to take into consideration for your Friday night excursions, whether you have someone pressing you, sweatin' you, or not even texting you. Either way, I think these are fly:

Band of Outsiders

Marc by Marc Jacobs


Thom Browne

Levi's Made and Crafted


Bottega Veneta

Junya Watanabe

I have to say, I own a bunch of white shirts in different variations, so it's only natural that I'm drawn to the Thom Browne up above. Clean, simple, and classic. Only problem is that I'm a total klutz, and always end up spilling on my shirts. Not the bizzness.

My Walk Meaner Than Cara Delevingne

This is what happens when Cara Delevigne and her brows miss NYFW... You have A$AP Ferg dope-walking at these fashion shows. Check out Ferg's new video shot on his iPhone for "Dope Walk", featuring cameos by Cara, Les Twins (Beyonce's dancers), H.A.I.M., and many more below. Honestly, I'll still take Cara's walk over Ferg's any day!

Things You Find While Browsing

Was browsing through some old folders on my laptop, and stumbled upon some pics I took at this fashion show I attended like hella months ago. Opps, my bad. Better late than never in posting them, right? Here are some of my favorite looks from designer Jeaneen Brunck.

Mr. Huxtable Sweater Game Crazy

 Photos by Imelda, over at Sunset Shutter Bug blog. Pictures taken on location at Golden Gate Park's AIDS Memorial. 

I love knitwear. Even if it looks like something Dr. Cliff Huxtable would wear on the Cosby Show. Now if only wearing this sweater gave me the type of coinz he had. After spending a couple weeks on the East Coast in the Washington D.C. area, I decided to pull a "When in Rome" moment and purchased a pair of Timberland's to bring over to San Francisco. Cause let's be real. We all know Timbs are a New York thing, and I haven't really worn them since I first moved to the Bay Area over 15 years ago.

In other news, there are so many nooks and crannies of Golden Gate Park I haven't set foot on. Case in point: I had no idea there was an AIDS Memorial (pictured above) until Imelda suggested we check it out.

Pop That

Photos by Imelda, over at Sunset Shutter Bug blog. Pictures taken on location in the The Sunset District. 

I've been on a neutral phase this winter. Not with just colors, but with my over all wardrobe I guess. Simple is more, at times.  And plus, the weather has been amaze-balls in San Francisco recently (OOPS, sorry bout it,  NYC Juno victims), but wearing any sort of bright pops of colors in the winter just seems odd to me, regardless with the sun out. However, I do love the pop of color in this mural. I love it! The San Francisco Skyline, the pop of color, and all that.
