Happy Sunday everyone! Yay, I'm so happy to be posting Sunday Eye Candy again. I have really missed it. Even though I had been really busy with school, I had been snapping photos of the cute stuff I saw, bought, or
mostly ate. ^^ So I figured it was time to share all of the cuteness with you guys! I really should be more dedicated about instagram. I have one, just never get around to using it. So for now, you will have to deal with all of my ridiculously random (but cute) photo dumps on here. Hope you enjoy them! How have you spent your weekend so far?

Why hello there! Yes, I am alive!! Geez, I feel like I have so neglected you guys. But, I'm happy to let you know that I graduated over the weekend and officially have my MBA. Yay! So I spent the weekend celebrating with my boyfriend and family. And now I feel like (besides a job search) I can focus on blogging more regularly.
This outfit is actually something I wore a few weeks ago, but I finally got around to editing the photos and am so excited to share them with you. ^^ If you have been reading for awhile, then you know that I am a fan of galaxy printed clothes. I just love stars - they are so romantic, beautiful and captivating. Plus I was pretty obsessed with the dress that Kyary Pamyu Pamyu wore in Dazed and Confused magazine. And when I saw this skirt at Hot Topic, the print really reminded me of that dress. So I gave in a finally bought something in galaxy print!
I actually really like it. It's comfortable and cute. Hope you like it too, let me know what you think! :)

What's your favorite type of food? Mine is probably a toss up between Japanese food and New Mexican food. New Mexican because I grew up with it, my mom and grandma cooked it for me when I was a kid. It has that nostalgic quality for me - something that I will probably always crave because it brings back a lot of good feelings.
I love Japanese food because it's still pretty new to me, plus all of the flavors are delicious. I have come to find a even stronger love for Japanese food through cooking it myself and making fun bento lunches. I like to challenge myself to make new recipes and do something I really never thought I could. Like - make sushi! Like many other people, I fell in love with Japanese food through sushi. I still look forward to treating myself by going to my favorite sushi restaurant. But I never thought I could actually make sushi myself at home. It just seemed way too complicated. Plus, I always
stupidly thought that sushi had to contain some form of fish.
Then through researching Japanese food recipes and recipes for bento, I discovered that sushi is sushi because of the sushi rice not the fish. I also found out that I could make one perfect for bento using something that I am now pretty good at making - tamagoyaki. I love the flavors of the rolled omelet and it was even better in sushi! I also decided to make a seaweed salad to go on the side and some grapes. I decorated with some cute heart picks - and voila - lunch was complete. ^^
If you want to try to make your own sushi, I recommend watching a sushi video recipe by Ochikeron on Youtube. I love all of her recipes, which are easy to follow and really yummy!

Hello ladies! I am so sad I have literally had no time to blog lately, but I want to thank you all for your sweet comments on my last few posts. And this week is officially finals week. Yay!!! That means, its less than one week until I get my MBA. And less than one week until I can *officially* return to blogging! I'm super excited.
Anyway, it feels good to finally post a mani again. This one is a little messy and there are a few chips since I took the photos several days after painting them, but I hope you like it anyway. I wanted something cute and fun to cheer me up during this stressful time. I was also planning to go out and celebrate the end of my internship with some lovely ladies so I had to do something on my nails!
I figured pink + glitter is always a winner so I chose a Lime Crime pink with a new polish I recently picked up from Revlon called "Heavenly". It's a really pretty combo of iridescent glitter in different shapes, which makes a really pretty "party" look on any color when used as a topcoat. Sorry I didn't get better photos.
Hope everyone has a happy Monday! ^_^

So...yes this bento is way overdue. And no, I didn't pack this bento last week. Haha I really hoped you knew that but just had to make sure! I am just way overdue in posting and editing photos lately- but good news is - after next week I will no longer be a student any more. I am so happy, after 6 years in college counting undergrad and grad school, I am so ready to get a job. I never thought I would say that and am actually a little nervous about never going to class ever again. My internship also ended today. So I guess you can say I am at a huge transitional phase in my life. It's kind of scary but at the same time very exciting. I am hopeful that I will be able to find a job I actually enjoy. Hopefully something in the marketing/advertising/graphic design field. Now on to the bento..
I actually decided to pack this bento the week after Easter to make use of all of the leftovers we had. And of course I had to add these cute little bunny picks to make it festive! It contains spiral sliced ham, cut into heart shapes, cheddar cheese cut into heart shapes, baby pickles, mixed fresh berries, green bean and grape tomato salad, and a fresh baked roll. Yummy! Hope you enjoyed this one. ^^

Happy Thursday everyone! I am so happy to be writing a blog post again, feels like a welcome break from my torturous graduate work. Yes I said torturous. It has been the most stressful time of my life, but I know that it will be worth it later even if I do not see it now. Thank you guys for sticking it out with me - in a time that I haven't been posting much or reading many of your blogs. I love you! Anyway, last week I decided to try out one of my favorite spring/summer trends: neon! I have been loving the combo of neutral outfits with neon accents, or accessories like nude heels with neon edging. This is my version, and I actually think I will be wearing more neon this season! What do you think? ^_^

Happy Sunday to all of you lovely ladies (maybe I should quit saying that...maybe there are a few gentlemen that read M&S!). Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. Today I thought I would share something super cute that I recently discovered on Pinterest called "Toast Art". It is apparently the newest reason to love Japan. The point of the art is to decorate breakfast toast in the cutest designs and patterns, and has recently become a new rage. How cute is this Miffy toast? I just love cute food, I know a lot of people say they couldn't eat cute food. But, I may be terrible, because I could! Hope you enjoyed this one. You can see how the toast is created with foil stencils in a toaster oven in the photo below. Learn more about it here.
