☆✮Feeling Lucky☆✮

This week, I've been feeling so grateful. Grateful to have been blogging for a year and reading so many of your kind comments. Grateful to have the opportunity to work with several online retailers like Sugarlips Apparel, Oasap, and Firmoo, to name a few. As of today, I published my first outfit ideas post on Lucky Magazine's Lucky Community! Most of all, I'm grateful to live in America, the land of the free. {Storytime!} My parents and I immigrated to California when I was very young. Their whole way of life, from their occupations to the language they spoke to the food they ate to their family and friends, was left behind thousands of miles away when they made the decision to raise me in a country where I'd have a brighter future. My thanks go out to all those serving in the military and many others out there working hard to keep us all safe. The tragedy of 9/11 will always be in our hearts.
I picked this tee from Oasap thinking it was going to be a dress like the model in the photo. Unfortunately, when it arrived, I realized that it resembled more of a long tee. It was a little disappointing but I like the style nevertheless!
When I think of American heroes, I can't help but also think of Captain America (and of course, our troops)! Read about how a military dad surprised his son by dressing up as Captain America here. So cute!
