The holiday is right around the corner, festivities are beginning to pop up here and there (and everywhere). Dressing up for different occasions sure is fun but can also be stressful, luckily Marshalls has everything I need. I picked up this super soft cashmere cocoon sweater with faux fur details and a pair of showstopping loafers bedazzled with grommets and jewels as my shopping outfit. I wanted to shop in a comfy yet stylish outfit because who wants to wear 5-inch heels when you are running around trying to find gifts and carrying shopping bags? Shopping made easy when I make Marshalls my one-stop shop since it carries a wide selection of high-quality and brand-name products. You never know what is in store for you when you walk into a Marshalls... I was pleasantly surprised to find tons of beauty products and gift sets such as this amazing contour kit, lip creams, and some must-have brushes which I picked up for friends and family. This holiday season, do yourself a favor and shop at Marshalls! You can thank me later.

I can't believe it is already December! I also can't believe it is only the first week and I already have my tree up... feeling quite ahead of the game over here! Another exciting thing about the holiday season is dressing up for special occasions and I am so stoked for the Michael Costello x Revolve collaboration. Michael Costello is all about beautiful gowns and elegant pieces. Revolve is, well, just simply amazing and fashion forward. So when you combine the two you get a collection that is classy yet edgy and show-stopping. I love so many of the pieces but when it comes down to it, this rusty bronze number stole my heart. A stunning dress needs a stunning backdrop and what's better than the roof at Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood?

This is it! My FINAL post from my two-week adventure in Paris and Italy! On my last day in Rome, we caught the sun setting across the Tiber on Ponte Sant'Angelo. This ancient bridge, also known as Bridge of Angels, dates all the way back to 134 AD and is one of the finest surviving in Rome itself! It was completely packed with tourists but beautiful nonetheless... I don't really have anything specific to say except for the fact that this trip was life changing. No, I am not exaggerating. This trip wasn't really planned. My good friend Bryn told me she was spending nearly a month in Europe and I spontaneously decided to join her (for two reasons). One, I had just moved to LA and feeling out of place and depressed. Two, I have been in a really complicated situation this entire year to the point where I would find any chance to escape. This trip truly opened my eyes and heart to a lot of things. I gained back the confidence I lost and learned that at the end of the day only I matter, that I should be my priority. Life is short and I need to focus on my own happiness. Obviously, life isn't that simple and I still have struggles but I am definitely making progress. Anyways, I will end this post with a quote I came across recently that really resonates with me... "Whatever comes, let it come. What stays, let it stay. What goes, let go."

The ultimate film, food, and wine experience, the Napa Valley Film Festival lights up Wine Country during the most colorful time of the year. Thank you Napa Valley Film Festival for sponsoring this post.

I was invited to attend this year's Napa Valley Film Festival a week ago or so and was very excited to be there alongside some fellow influencers with VIP media access. I flew up to SFO from LAX and spent 5 days in Napa Valley at this stunning house atop a hill surrounded by vineyards hosted by Italics Wine. If you followed me on InstaStory, you know it was a whirlwind! Multiple events and activities were happening at the same time throughout the day for 5 days all over the Napa Valley.

We did as much as we can but some highlights were:
- Eating next to David Arquette and took a funny photo with Elijah Wood at the Opening Party.
- Waking up for 10am wine tastings and drank wine til 2am.
- Tasting so many delicious food such as Morimoto's hamachi fish tacos.
- Drinking wine, wine, and more wine!
- Attending fun celebrity tributes with Will Ferrell (super funny, duh!), Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder, Nancy Meyers, etc.
- Chatting with Austin Stowell for a good half an hour and had no idea who he was until I asked him what he is doing at the film fest and he pulled out his pass and said "I guess I am a rising star..."
- Meeting and chatting with Gregg Sulkin at the riding star showcase.
- Partying up at the Friday Night Bash which included a wrestling ring and naked body painting.
- Watching the documentary The Ataxian and meeting Sean Baumstark (and now so happy to call him my friend). This guy and this film are so inspiring, and I highly recommend everyone to watch it. At times when I am feeling down, I remind myself that these small things do not matter. Be grateful and thankful and to live life fully.
- Eating the most amazing meal and making new friends at one of the Vintner Circle Dinners at Ma(i)sonry.
- Casually peeling an hardboiled egg in the kitchen one morning when Lea Thompson and her daughter Zoey Deutch and Maddie Deutch just walked in and we all started chatting about random things like chickens and my Sony camera.
- Walking the red carpet and attending the infamous Festival Gala.
- Watching the advanced screening of Molly's Game at Uptown Theater.

The above was just some of the many things I did while I was at #NVFF.  It was an experience of a life time! A big thank you to Napa Valley Film Festival for inviting me, Italics Wine for hosting, and Wholefoods Napa and Clover Sonoma for sponsoring!

Rome was my last stop and I couldn't think of a better way to end my European adventure. There's something about Rome that makes you want to experience it all. Just like many other cities on this trip, I have been to Rome a few times so instead of seeing all the touristy spots, I spent my three days there living like a local (or try to)! I met a few true Romans and they were able to show me the rope... We hung out in hip neighborhoods such as Monti and Trastevere, drank wine and laughed so hard in many piazzas, danced the night away at clubs, and definitely fell in love. I even got my 10th (a dainty rose) and 11th (my grandma's birth year in Roman numerals) tattoo in Rome... See! Rome does somehow bring out the adventurous side in me!
