Ellebelle Cookies

Happy Hump Day! It is already mid-week, meaning the rest of the week is going to fly by even quicker. I am bringing to you a post that is quite different from all my previous posts and it was necessary because... just look at that. 
How cute are those cookies ?!
I was really sad because I actually broke the 'GRACE URSELF' cookie while I was trying to take a picture of it, but it worked out with the photo above.
Valentine's Day just passed and I didn't have a valentine this year, which is usually the case every year. You may be asking, so why these cookies?
My beloved unnie (older sister figure) that I met when she was still living in LA has been really showing off some talent and her love for cookies, cakes, cake toppers, etc. and I really wanted some for myself. She was actually my valentine a two years ago and this was actually after she had moved back to the East Coast. She flew in to LA for a few days and it happened to be right around Valentine's Day, so we got each other gifts and had a good time.
My photos does not do justice for the cuteness and the perfection of these cookies and I very much intend on ordering my wedding cake from her because her work is just amazing.
She does take orders, and until further update from her, you can DM her on Instagram for inquiries.
Click on the link above to be directed to her Instagram page and shower her with some love!
She can ship them to different states and cities, as she shipped my order to LA for me.
They all came safely in one piece, so I don't think there's a need to worry about that!
Have a great Wednesday and have an amazing week!

Grace Yourself.

Sunday Neutrals

My blog activity unintentionally went on a month long hiatus, so I decided to finally do something about it.
I finally had the opportunity to do an impromptu photoshoot with the help of my beloved friend, Jane Kim.
The behind story is that... we were at Skyzone in Van Nuys yesterday evening to chaperone a bunch of little 6th graders for their outing. We got the guy teachers to watch over all of their stuff while they were watching Superbowl, and headed outside to try to get some work done.
It was quite windy but we were able to succeed in getting some nice photos.
Thanks, Jane!

I've been going through a phase of wearing shadows that create a soft smoky look, and when I am really feeling it, I've been wearing lashes. I'm not sure if you can tell from the photo above and below, but they are not my natural lashes (I wish they were) and I absolutely love it. Natural looking falsies are always great to have for any occasion.
I have a secret (not really) about these shoes. My mother brought home two pairs for herself, one in nude and one in black. I fell in love at first sight and I really wanted to wear them. My mom actually has smaller feet than me and narrower feet, so even though I did fit into hers, she did not let me wear hers because she was afraid that I was going to stretch them out. *crying face*
So guess what? I went to the place and bought a pair for myself.

I love the fact that they are pointy, the ribbon is just absolutely adorable, and the ankle strap make it easy to walk in them all day. On top of that, the heels are not super short but not too tall, making it comfortable.
Obviously, I love them. And I have heard so many compliments from my friends, that makes me feel even better about having gone to the store to buy them for myself.
This last photo was a very unintended pose but I love how it came out.

Thank you all for the support and the love, you guys are the best!
Grace Yourself.
