Since there's nothing else on my agenda for Spring Break besides getting rid of my fever, I've been spending the past couple of days catching up on my favorite TV shows (I know, so productive, haha!)... and while in the middle of my little Hulu marathon, I came up with a fun idea for a post: My Top 5 Favorite TV Shows.
These are the five shows that I really, truly enjoy watching -- you can lock me in a room and I'll just watch these shows all day, no problem, haha! ;)
1. Grey's Anatomy -
I've been watching Grey's Anatomy since Season 1, and to me, it's still as amazing as ever!
2. Once Upon A Time -
The writers of this show are beyond brilliant!
Every time a new character is introduced, I'm always wondering who they are in fairy tale land -- it always makes me think and it always keeps me guessing.
3. Revenge -
If I ever find myself in trouble, I want Emily Thorne on my team. ;)
4. Hart Of Dixie -
Hart of Dixie has the perfect balance of comedy and drama -- that plus Zoe and Lemon's gorgeous clothes = love!
5. Downton Abbey -
I think I've blogged about this show enough for you guys to know how much I love it, haha! ;) (Check out those posts here.)
So yup, I LOVE LOVE LOVE these shows!
What about you guys...
If you were to choose your top 5 favorite shows, what would they be?
I'll be spending the first Saturday of Spring at the Getty Villa in Malibu...
I am so excited!
I've heard so many positive things about the Getty Villa and as you can see from these wonderful photos courtesy of Pinterest, it's beautiful! According to the weather forecast, it's going to be a gorgeous California day today = perfect!
I will definitely take photos to share with you guys! :)
I loved both colors, but in the end, I decided to go for the cream version.
How amazing is this linen bag it came in?!
LOVE LOVE LOVE!
The print is so beautiful and so unique -- I love it!
Up close photos:
This cardigan is crafted in cotton and acrylics, featuring contrast zigzag print to the main, ribbed edge, long sleeves, irregular hem, in medium length cut.
Due to different measurements, 1-2cm difference is allowed.
I love this cardigan!
It's very comfortable and it fits really well!
The way it falls on the body is perfect and very flattering. :)
I also love how versatile it is -- you can wear this on a day when you just want to be comfy and casual and on days when you want to dress up a little bit.
It keeps me warm in the mornings, but it's not stifling once the afternoon sun comes out.
As I mentioned above, this is the perfect piece to transition from winter to spring -- wear it with jeans or leggings on cold days and wear it with a skirt or shorts on warm days.
The design is classic and I can totally see this as something I will wear in the years to come -- I will definitely take care of this cardigan because it's my new favorite! :)
Oh and as if I didn't already love OASAP enough... they gave me more reason to love them even more than I already do -- they gave me a free gift!
Claw Earrings -- cute, right?!
And oh hey, look who took outfit photos again! ;)
Sooo, this is the outfit I wore with my cardigan... I gave a little sneak peek on Twitter and Instagram, if you guys remember. :)
Here are the details of my outfit:
Black Bandage Skirt
Black Tank Top
Black Ballet Flats
Contrast Zigzag Print Long Sleeve Cardigan from OASAP
I think this photo above shows what I meant about how the cardigan falls on the body. :)
It falls longer in the front and it's a bit short at the back -- perfect balance. :)
And now, about the accessories...
Black Aviator Sunglasses
Silver Statement Necklace
Starfish Ring with Pearl
So yup, there we have it... bottom line: I love my new cardigan and I think it's good to invest in something like it. :)

I just wanted to share with you guys my excitement about Spring -- can you believe it's officially Spring on Wednesday???!!! :O
And in girl world, you know what a new season means... new clothes! ;)
I'm trying not to spend all my money on shopping, but that doesn't mean I can't dream about it, haha!
With that said, I put together a little wishlist of Spring items I would love to buy from Chicnova:
1. Mini Skirt with Bold Flower Print Details, $161.40 -
What a beautiful print!
2. Skinny Elastic Pants in Vintage Green with Zipped Cuffs, $35.40 -
I love the color!!!
3. Neon Green Flower Lace and Organza Dress with Cropped Sleeves, $63 -
This dress is so pretty!
4. Pants in Digital Floral Print, $138 -
Floral pants are something my wardrobe is lacking...
5. Beige Sleeveless Silk Chiffon Shirt with Dip Hem, $45 -
This is a classic style and so versatile too!

Since I'm in a celebratory mood, I think we should go ahead and jump into today's post...
These past few days have been extremely hot, the weather is now hitting the 80s (so not looking forward to triple digit weather), and my boots are now going back into the depths of my closet (haha!). I've been saying that I want to find the perfect sandals for Spring and Summer... guess what, I think I finally found it! :D
Christine from Shoe Daca sent me a pair of their Saltwater Sandals to review for you guys. :)
First off, here's a little something about Shoe Daca:
Shoe Daca is an adorable boutique established in 2010 that has recently relocated to Elk Grove, CA. We are an OFFICIAL retailer of AUTHENTIC Salt-Water Sandals, Rainbow Sandals, Bearpaw Boots, and Hello Kitty merchandise!
Along with these amazing brands, we also carry women's clothing, accessories, purses, shoes, and more!
Last year, our cute, locally owned boutique donated hundreds of shoes and clothes equaling thousands of dollars to the Sacramento Children's Closet for the Sacramento City Unified School District for needy children and families. For our efforts, the California State PTA gifted us with Golden Oak Services Award, "California's most prestigious PTA award, given to an individual or organization that has made significant contributions to the welfare of children and youth in a school or community."
We have also hosted sales and events, such as fashion shows and Hello Kitty Meet and Greet Parties for all our loyal customers and will host many more events to show our appreciation for our customers and the community.
Sounds amazing to me! :)
Now, on to the sandals...
Cute box, right?!
Shoe Daca is the only official Saltwater Sandal retailer with 20 colors of saltwaters in the world!!!
These waterproof sandals are durable and comfortable, perfect for summer and taking long walks on the beach.
We carry them all year long in black, brown, champagne, fuchsia, gold, lime, navy, orange, pink, purple, red, silver, tan, white, yellow and custom color combinations handpicked by the Shoe Daca team.
Ready to see my new sandals? :)
They're so pretty, right?!
I really, really love them!
The design is classic and timeless.
I think they add a nice touch to any outfit -- you can wear them with jeans, shorts, or dresses.
In my opinion, this kind of sandals will suit different kinds of styles and personalities. I received compliments from tons of people at school. :)
They are also really comfortable -- I wore them all day and they did not hurt my feet at all!
One problem I had, though... one side of the strap broke. :/
I guess it wasn't glued on that well -- I was a little bummed, but it's nothing a little Krazy Glue won't fix. :)
And I just gotta say, even when the strap broke, walking wasn't difficult.
Besides that little boo-boo, I think these sandals are 100% perfect!
Oh and hey, look who took some outfit photos! ;)

Please excuse the awkward picture!
I don't think I'm ever gonna get used to posing for outfit pictures, I think I'm forever going to be awkward in photos, haha! ;)
A closer look...
This necklace I wore was from a giveaway I won back in my first year of blogging... three years later, I still love it!
This belt is my new favorite!
I also have it in black and brown.
My other accessories...
So yup, bottom line: I love these sandals and I know you guys will too!
Shoe Daca has an amazing customer service and their shipping is extremely fast.
One last thing... about sizing, if you are a half size, you should order the next size up.
I am usually a size 6 and a half -- a size 7 is a perfect fit on me. :)
