I stumbled on Skin Food the other day while shopping with my best friend Abby at the Cerritos Mall near her house. I was actually looking for The Body Shop for some body wash but we ended up walking into Skin Food because it was in the location that the Body Shop used to be in. I'd heard about Skin Food before but didn't know anything about it. Apparently, it's a skin and cosmetics store based out of Korea, and there are only four locations in the U.S. (all in Southern California). Check out their website! You'll be mesmerized, I swear. Walking in the store is an experience in itself because it's displayed in a simple, cute, organic-looking way that makes you want to buy everything in the store. You shouldn't, though, because it's super expensive, but I did end up buying more that just body wash. (Also, I've never actually purchased an eyelash curler in my life.) The smaller packets of body wash and skin care products were free samples, though. They're really nice and helpful there, and you get a little stamp card to earn a free polish, too!

I have so much to update you all on now that everything has died down. The wedding has come and gone and it was wonderful. Before that was a lot of planning and crafting and stressing AND a trip to Chicago for the AWP Writer's Conference which is held annually, but in different locations. The first year I went was in Denver, and last year was Washington D.C. I think my favorite, weirdly, was Denver-- mostly because of the people. I think my favorite locale was D.C., though.
Anyway, the next few posts will cover:
1. A visit to TLO (The Loved One in Pasadena)
2. My trip to Chicago for AWP
3. Wedding preparations
4. The wedding itself
5. Shop stuff!
Lots in store, so keep your eyes peeled!
WEEKS AND WEEKS AGO. . .
The Loved One in Pasadena is a vintage shop that also sells original lingerie. I ended up buying the white cropped cotton top right in the first photo, along with the Fuego Set and a super cute green printed blouse. I'll post up outfit pictures some other time. Afterwards, my mother-in-law and I walked around Old Pasadena (which I love) and ate lunch and cupcakes.
Oh! I also got a super cute cat jewelry holder. The place was covered in cat kitch. Loved it.
