  (clockwise: Revlon 680 Revlon Red, Revlon 210 French Roast, Sally Hansen 170 Expresso, Rimmel 390 Burgundy Flirt, Milani 531 Gold, Revlon 799 Plum Night, Sonia Kashuk 22 Fatigued, Revlon 761 Scandalous, and Sally Hansen 07 Quick Sand).  


I wanted to share with you some of my current/past favorite nail polishes and books.

Nailpolish:  everyone knows you can't get enough of it, but I did promise myself I will buy no more- until I use up some of my polishes.  I sometimes feel like I'll never go through all of my colors because nail polish is certainly an instant splurge.  So instead of buying them every time I go shopping, I figured I'll go through my collection, rediscover a couple of colors and hopefully I'll use them all in rotation.  Currently, I'm loving the ombres, accented ring fingered nails in gold sparkles, and hues in darker shades of autumn especially in burgundy.

Books:  I really need to start sharing my favorite books of the month, but for those of you who need a kick of inspiration, I highly recommend The Happiness Project! All the books shown above are my past favorites and I recommend all of them.  If you are on goodreads, feel free to add me so we can share books.  My goodreads userID is: jennyjiin.  If your curious of what type of books I enjoy: I only read non-fiction, historical, self help, inspirational, biographical books.  

If you have any favorite nail polishes or book recommendations, please feel free to comment below, thanks!

Since I've been gone from the blogging world, a lot has happened in my so called "real life."  To share some experiences: Ryan came back from Korea, I celebrated my birthday, I took my family to Disneyland and I read a generous amount of books.

For my birthday which was a couple months ago, one of the places I celebrated with Ryan was at Geoffrey's in Malibu.  Dinner was lovely and the food was extremely exquisite; I was so grateful to be spending my birthday with the love of my life.  A lot of my friends dread getting older... with age comes the thought of marriage, real career choices, babies, how to take care of those fine lines and wrinkles, etc.... but to sum up my experiences and thoughts about age is quite simple: it only gets better.  I believe with age comes real beauty, real wisdom and incredible, unforgettable journeys.

I am really thinking about creating a channel to share my life experiences with you guys.  I feel like I'm always giving some kind of advice to everyone around me and I think it will be helpful to actually express those ideas and comments with you. 

I will be blogging on a daily basis from now on, so I wanted to get some feedback from everyone.  For my upcoming posts, I do want to share some of my favorite books, products, the "get in" with nail polish colors and inspirational quotes/stories.   Please let me know if you have any other suggestions.

Until then, have a fabulous weekend!

HELLO, blog world.  Long time no see.  I've definitely been M.I.A for quite some time now, my last post being of June....You can ultimately say I've been soul searching, thinking of ways to renew myself, pondering about the future, and trying to focus on what's of the "new and becoming me, Jenny."

I'm not sure what this blog is going to be about... First it was all about trying to be "in the fashion blogger world," but come to think of it, I'm very much into health, fitness, trying new foods, beauty, traveling and everything related to bettering one's lifestyle.  So, instead of just writing about "the fashion world," I'm going to try and incorporate all my interests/ideas into this blog.  This will fundamentally be the releasing of my "inter-monologue repartee's."

So, as I've always done, here is a recent post of one of my outings with Ryan in Santa Monica.  I can't believe summer is leaving us (not really, it being 93 degrees today in October) but I can't wait to welcome autumn- the deeper hues, faux fur, faux leather, warm frappuccinos and pumpkin spices.... what a delight!

Anyways, I do hope everyone enjoyed their last bits of summer as we quickly head into fall. What will you be looking forward to this autumn?!

What I want to share with you guys is that this blog will expressly be a journey as it will one day help me reveal what my true life's purpose will be.  I hope you guys can enjoy and follow me on this journey :)
