Life Lately: My 2014 So Far

Time flies when you're having fun. That cliche is a cliche for a reason. In our busy lifestyle consumed by work and occasional leisure activities, it is important to stop every once in a while to savor and look back on what had filled our time. We are now onto the second week for the second month of the year. Wasn't it just yesterday when were were counting down memories from the holidays and filled with anticipation for the new year? The ball has started rolling and 2014 has given me a few beautiful surprises.

I'd like to share some updates in my life through my Instagram posts:

1) With the new year, I promised myself to continue on with my fitness habits. The regular workout routine was the easy part. The diet was far more challenging. That is when I decided to do my own grocery shopping. 

2) Celebrated another month with the boyf. We had a low-key celebration - went to watch a movie and then had dinner. We whiled the night away by spending late night hours at a coffee shop where we decided to grab dessert, too. Love those times!

3) I added a new peplum top to my closet. This one is a new favorite. Love the color and the pattern. When I saw this one the rack, I did not even hesitate to buy it!

4) After a long time, I finally headed back to one of my favorite spots to be in - the beach. Spent an idle weekend with friends to swim, eat, and catch up. Loved it!

5) Quality time with some of the closest friends. From the beach, we headed to this Mediterranean restaurant and indulged on some pizza and dessert.

6) Love this new addition into my LBDs and LWDs. I got this dress from Invogue Collections and went gaga when I put it on. Okay, that sounded a little over-dramatic. But I always have the tendency to do that whenever I see a lovely dress! Can you tell it's a weakness? xx
