What I Wore | Black & White

Whoops, it’s been a while since I’ve done a post! This week I kind of just wanted to show off my new hair – which is a pink ombre! I’ve been dying to have magical colored hair but struggle because I work in a professional setting. So I worked with my hairdresser to do a subtle pink-red, which I’ve been keeping up using Overtone Extreme Pink.

And I love it! The photos don’t capture how vibrant the color is in the sunlight, but it’s subtle enough that no one at work can say anything. Who knows, maybe in the future I’ll go even lighter…

What I Wore | Low-Key Hufflepuff Pride

Ok guys, time for real talk. For the longest time ever, I considered myself a Slytherin. Then, all of a sudden I took the official pottermore test and it told me I was a Hufflepuff. What?! I had a mini mid-life crisis, of sorts. I’ve come to terms with this and now consider myself a proud Slytherpuff – some days I just feel more Slytherin, and some days I feel like a true Hufflepuff. When I went to the parks I even had to buy everything as both Slytherin and Hufflepuff (o^ ^o) Maybe one day I’ll truly feel like either of the houses…

Tips for Fresh, Healthy, Out of the Sun Skin

Today I have something a little different to share – a combo outfit post, video, and lifestyle post! As I’m getting older I’m caring more and more about my skin, and keeping it young and healthy.

In this video I talk about getting invested in the Korean skincare routine and some of my favorite Korean sun products. Oh, and all my other tips for staying out of the sun ^^



One of the most important accessories is a sunhat – they’re cute, functional, and usually cheap. I’ve started wearing this going for walks on my lunch break, and just bringing it if I’m going to be outside for more than a few minutes. My skin is thanking me!

This hat is about five years old from Kohl’s (I couldnt’ find the exact hat), but here are some other really cute options:

What I Wore | Casual Ariel

Today I’ve got a fun post – it’s a mix of What I Wore and cosplay posts.

Last month I went to Disney World, and I wanted to buy some of those cute ears before going. In 2015 I went to Disney Land and I felt so lame because I didn’t have ears, so I wanted to be prepared this year.

I bought these adorable Ariel ears from the Etsy shop Wishing4Wonderland. Let me just say, I have never had more compliments, ever! It seemed like everyone at the park wanted to know where I got my ears. I thought it would be cute to do a casual Ariel shoot wearing them!

What I Wore | Tokyo Style Part I

Kyla Is Inspired | Tokyo Style Part I

When we first arrived in Tokyo, the first morning we went right to the busy Shinjuku station, got a coffee, and people watched during rush hour. I was surprised to see that a large majority of women (of all ages!) were wearing these flowy, comfy looking pants that looked like skirts. They were wearing them casually with cotton tees and sneakers, and dressed up with heels and a blouse. So of course, I had to get myself a pair :)

And I wore them a lot! Seen below in Ueno & Odaiba (I did not, actually, hold my pants like this for the entire trip):

I had seen similar pants in stores around me before my trip but ignored them because…surprise? they’re actually pants? I was turned into a believer after seeing so many women rock them in Tokyo, and now I can’t wait to style these different ways.

I also got this amazing cat shirt from Nya Shop, a small boutique shop near the station. I’m in love! I bought the hat in Tokyo, too ^^

I have a feeling I’m going to be wearing this outfit a lot this fall. Do you have a go-to item to wear as the weather cools down?
