Sunny Side Out in Los Angeles | Oversized Shirt Jacket

LOFT TANK and SHORTS (old), ZARA OVERSIZED SHIRT,
 LV POCHETTE ACCESSOIRES (w/ vachetta strap from ebay)

We took a four-day trip down south to the city of Angels.  It was scorching hot, and I started questioning our decision to go escape our bustle and bustle to more of both. It was Ocep's birthday when we drove out. His only request was a coupon book, just like one I made him before years ago. Now, before you think anything naughty, the coupon book he wanted was mostly for "tickle time" because he loves tickling me, and I don't like to be tickled.

In light of the scorching hot summer in LA, and we didn't anticipate the museums we wanted to visit were closed on Mondays, we took pictures around the area instead. At first, I wasn't really up for it since I'm not really a big fan of the sun when I'm outside and it's ninety degrees. Nonetheless, the view is pretty spectacular from the Griffith Observatory Park, and it was hard not to be mesmerized.



The Zara shirt is a new addition I picked up on this trip. It was on sale, and I just couldn't pass up on the adorable cacti prints! I was thinking to use it as a oversized tee, but it totally works as a lightweight outerwear, too!

Sunny Afternoon | Stripes and Flare

LOFT TOP size SP , LOFT JEANS (similar), HALOGEN SHOES (old)

I am currently infected by the off-shoulder/bell-sleeves trend as you can see with the last couple of my post. I remember few years ago when I started my blog, my then boyfriend (and my now-husband) was really struggling in taking my pictures. It seems we have come along way. He now is the one who picks the spot for my pictures and even initiates the photo shoots. My photo shoots are mostly impromptu, but I still enjoy them nonetheless.



The summer has been pretty sunny and bright, and I sure will miss it once it's gone, which is flying so fast. I am enjoying a couple of weeks off as I am moving to a new firm. It is exciting and frightening at the same time, but I just hope for the best.

Chilly Summer | Blush Bell Sleeves

LOFT SWEATER (on sale!) & JEANS (similar), ADIDAS SLIP-ON, BP HAT (similar), 


Summer has been getting its presence known more and more every single day. It was 4th of July, and we didn't really have a plan. We decided to try taking the train to the city.  It was quite a refreshing when we arrived in the city and it was quite cool  in the 60s.

Louis Vuitton Handbag Organizer

BAG ORGANIZER - Original Club 
NEVERFULL MM - Louis Vuitton

 

Not too long ago, I shared on my channel that I finally got my very first Louis Vuitton bag. I went with the classic Neverfull MM in Monogram with pivone interior. Right after I got the bag, I went ahead and ordered a bag organizer after compiling all the research. This one is from Original Club, and it fits perfectly inside the MM size. I've posted a complete review on the bag organizer on my channel. 


The bag organizer is made out of this thick felt that gives the bag structure and shape. It makes my life so much easier and organized. The bag organizer really makes me love the bag even more. Although the quality of the bag organizer is somewhat questionable after I ordered a second one for my Speedy 30, I still highly recommend this particular one for the Neverfull MM.

The bag organizer is shipped from Thailand, so it takes about 1-2 weeks for shipping. I have a 50-50 (good/bad) experience with Original Club products, but this very first organizer is what got me hooked in the first place.

Super Bloom at Carrizo Plain | A Guest Post by Ocep

I still can't believe that we pulled it off. I am currently at the peak of my busy season as a tax accountant. When our friends shared their trips to see the Super Bloom at Carizzo Plains, my husband instantly asked me to go. Looking at the pictures, I didn't even think twice to say, "Let's go!"
It was an impromptu getaway, a very short one I might add. 

I leave it to Ocep to share you the deets of the trip since he was the one who planned everything, but let me just tell you that 4-hour drive was totally worth it. We literally just had less than 24 hours to enjoy the flowers and everything before we had to go back but it was worth it. Continue on reading and watch our trip here!



Hello everyone, this is Ocep, Amadea's (awesome) husband. Since it's only a two days one night trip, the planning was really simple! I booked a room in Taft, CA. I just picked a hotel that has good reviews and value, we spent $85 for a single night at Holland Inn and Suites. It's a good place to stay, it offers free parking and free wifi. The owner was nice, too. He actually gave us a copy of Carrizo Plain map when we checked out the next morning.

Carrizo Plain has two entrances, north and south. From Taft, you can opt for either on as they are roughly the same distance from the town. We went for south entrance since we had to drive north anyway to go home. It took us about half hour to get to the south entrance. I didn't really think it through and just drove north on Soda Lake Road towards visitor center and stopped here and there (see map here).



The flowers surely didn't disappoint! About 10 minute-drive from the entrance, we were welcomed by a hill full of yellow monolopia flowers. People parked their cars at the side of the road and so we did. The hills were literally blanketed by these yellow flowers, they looked ridiculous! We spent almost a good hour there before moving on.



We drove another half  hour until we noticed a huge patch of purple flowers in the distance on the right side of the road. So we continued driving until we bumped into a side road leading towards the patch. We turned right and drove for another 10 minutes or so until we arrived at a parking spot. We parked our car there and walked further inland following people. It was around 1.5 mile walk but it was worth it. We arrived at a field full of purple lupine flowers! I was really excited since it was the first time for me to see a single place covered by whole lot of purple flowers! We spent maybe 1.5 hours there to take pictures and enjoy the moment.

Go early in the morning! Since it's spring, the sun already rises by 6 or 7 am. That way,  there will be less crowds and the picture will be much nicer since the sun is not too harsh early on. So I would suggest for you to arrive in the plain by 8AM at the latest.

From there, we walked back to the parking spot and got back to the main road. We drove until we got to an area where on your left and right side it was miles and miles of yellow monolopia flowers. The flowers were so dense that you kind had to make your way if you want to walk deeper into it. Lucky for us, there were already tracks left behind by previous visitors. We took pictures, enjoyed our time and actually had our lunch with a view!

Casual to Work | Stripes,Jogger, White Sneakers and Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM

FOREVER 21 TEE (similar), LOUIS VUITTON NEVERFULL MM
THIS IS APRIL jogger (similar), NEVADA sneakers (similar on sale, similar)

Roughly 3 more weeks until tax season is over. I have to say that things have been going pretty smoothly for me despite some bumps in the administrative department at work. People keep implying how awful it must have been for me to work long hours and to work on Saturdays, but honestly I feel fine. I am surprised myself that I feel fine to come in on Saturdays. It's a weird feeling for me, but I really do feel that.


Every accounting firm is different, but we wear business casual and we have casual Fridays where we get to wear jeans to work. During tax season, at least for the last 8 weeks, we can wear more casual outfits to work. We can wear jeans everyday. It may sound lame, but for me it's awesome. I love lounge wear obviously, I always put comfort first - but not too comfortable otherwise I would have worn pyjamas to work =P. I love stripes, and I think I get that from my parents who literally wear stripes on most days.
