Weekend Getaway

It's been too long!  I started taking HR classes in January and between that and work I feel like I have very little time to myself so it's hard but I'm trucking along!  I'm on track to finish classes in December '14, woo woo.  There will be a celebration on that day - OKAY.  Anywhoo, Brian and I did find time to escape this past weekend to Monterey, one of my fave places ever.  We stayed at the Sprindrift Inn, which is largely why this is a favorite place of mine.  It is right on the water so it's worth it to pitch in a little extra for the ocean view room - it is Gorg.  All rooms have a fireplace and the bed and pillows are amazing - overall it's so romantic I can't say enough good things.  One night we were wondering where to eat and Brian goes up to the front desk and is all like "Where is the best fish 'n chips around here?" They recommended a little fish market called Sea Harvest which was around the corner from our hotel - we didn't have to use our car once all weekend, so nice.  He of course ordered the fish n chips and I got the crab cakes - so fresh and good...I wish it wasn't 350 miles away from home.  I have a special place in my heart for aquariums, and the one in Monterey is so fun.  Obviously sea otters are the big draw and amazingly we saw more sea otters from our hotel room than we did at the aquarium.  They are heart melters but I just read an article and the author described them as "the douchebags of the sea" - apparently they are not as cute and cuddly as they appear.

I feel as though my blog is turning into a travel log of mine so I will get back to the fashion soon!  Enjoy the pics. xxo


[ Oh, hi! ]


[ The way there - we battled a little rain in LA but otherwise it was perfect, cloudy and misty and NO cars on the road ]



[ A fan favorite - everyone was taking pics of this guy, the Sunfish ]


[ The view from our room ]


[ The jellies at the aquarium are amazing ]


[ Not to be confused with an alien spaceship ]
[ Brian took some amazing videos of these jellies, seen on IG: @hiddennotice ]


[ P.S. - A helpful addition to my blog - B got me a computer for an early birthday present.  Shock and awe!  He did good, to say the least. ]

Vegz

So Vegz - I had so much fun on this trip with my mom, aunt and sis.  We hit Chippendale's the buffets, Blackjack tables, slot machines (obviously), the pool, spa, and barely stepped outside for non-recycled air.  I think my personal fave was accidentally pushing the "max bet" button on the video poker and losing $100 on one hand.  Swoops.

I ♥ The Mirage

drinky drinks

The weather was perf... in November, who knew?

Faves.

$4.80 - jackpot!!


Have the best weekend ever.  I will be doing nothing since I'm still recovering... :P

XOXO

la la land

So I have two fun trips to give an update on - I will start with LA since that one was first.  We went to the Nine Inch Nails concert for B's birthday and I surprised him with a stay at the Ritz Carlton!  He was shocked and so were the parking attendants when I pulled up in my 2004 Jetta, LOL.  They were all very friendly once they realized we were actually staying there and offered us champagne at the front desk.  They also upgraded us to a suite for no particular reason and we had the most amazing view, including but not limited to, the "Hollywood" sign, the Staples Center, lots of freeways, and a smoggy sunset.  My photos do not do it justice.  Also -  I discovered I am not so much a fan of NIN but the concert was still fun.


Bathtub IN the shower!

TV IN the mirror!

Our view - we could see the peeps heading into the venue

Interesting lightshow at the concert


Pretty entryway into the room


Excuse the Tarjay dressing room - my dress for the evening - $30 !


Coming soon - photos of my super duper fun girls trip to Vegas.  Have a good week!!!!

Celeb Picks

I love how Singer22.com posts pics of famous peeps wearing items from their website.  Why is it that a piece of clothing becomes that much cooler and more desirable once a fashion forward lady celeb has worn it??  I'm marinating on that but meanwhile here are some fun looks.  

(The item that can be purchased on Singer22 is listed below each pic.)


[ Donna Mizani Passion Dress as seen on Joanna Krupa ]


[ Frame Denim Skinny Jean as seen on Doutzen Kroes ]


[ LnA Ribbed Tank as seen on Megan Fox ]


[ Ragdoll Cropped Tee as seen on Rosie Huntington-Whitely ]


[ Rails flannel as seen on Lea Michelle ]


[ Superga sneakers as seen on Allesandra Ambrosio ]

Have a great week - I hope it's a speedy one!  Brian and I are going to LA for a concert on Friday and I'm way excited about it!


XOXO,
A

Here's to 1 0 0 !

WEARwolf is turning one year old and this is also the 100th post!  ::cue the balloons from the ceiling:: 

I think life is about the little things that bring you joy so oh well if I enjoy clothing, accessories, and pop culture!!??  My WEARwolf new year’s resolution is to dedicate more time, energy and POSTS in the very near future.  I’m following my joy.  

Back to it, how bout this sweats trend?  Comfy, lounge-tastic AND fashionable?  Stick it in my veins.  Below are some cuties from Singer 22:


My husband surprised me these Wildfox sweats that I had my eye on  (props) !!:


They fit like a dream and are so comfy – like second skin I highly recommend!  They are on sale at Revolveclothing.com


We went to the pumpkin patch the other day – so much fun and we found a PERFectly shaped pumpkin.. I can’t wait to carve it.

I ♥ Rogers Gardens in Newport Beach - I have a penchant for succulents and they have the neatest arrangements, although very expensive!



Disneyland is all ready for H-ween.  We went on Splash Mountain and there was NO line.. probably because of the water factor - this is me pre-soaked!! haha


Showing off my new nails and hairdo.. hehe.

Have a great week!  I will be spending time with my boof (bff) who is here visiting before she moves to Japan!!! ;(

XOXO

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target

I stopped to check out the new 3.1 Phillip Lim collection at Target and it did not disappoint!  Pick ins are slim though I should have checked it out earlier.  I purchased the sweater above - perfect work staple and the fit is great.  Below are more of my faves -






Have a fantasmic weekend! .... I'm going to D-land tonight :D

Life - lately



Y'all know my flower obsession... these have lasted two weeks and I'm a sucker for white!  (found them at Trader Joe's)


How cute is this mason jar sippy cup?  It's plastic and unfortunately it does NOT fit into my cup holders in my car. (found it at Target)


 So obviously not with these shorts haha, but I'm diggin these heels from Target, I didn't buy them because I literally never wear heels but I may have to get 'em.



 I went to Virginia to visit my bff - who is moving to Japan very soon ;( - and only took two photos!!  rere



It's been so hot in socal so I'm trying to soak up summer as much as I can before it's over!  I went to the beach yesterday and the fog bank rolled in just as I sat down, to the point where I could barely see 10 feet in front of me haha!!



Love me some inspirational quotes.


My dad gave us this amazing plant now named "Spiky Bush" - it really ties the room together.


Have a great week! xoxo
