Yesterday, Isaac and I went to California Adventure to take advantage of the Food & Wine Festival going on. When we went to Disneyland a few weeks ago, we didn’t have time to go to CA so we decided that we’d go there first this time around then do Disneyland at night. It was so much fun seeing all of the booths and participating in events they had going on. We colored and made a chefs hat and ate so much food including the pepperoni pizza egg rolls (featured above) and omg they were so good! Isaac and I both liked them a ton. 

For my outfit I kept the look simple but with a Disney theme which included my favorite little green men ♥ I got this tee shirt for Isaac and I almost a year ago and we loved going to the parks in matching shirts. For only $13 it was such a great buy! 

For the rest of my look, I just wore comfy leggings and shoes for all of the walking we had to do. I wear these shoes every time and I love how light weight they are plus they’re super cute & go with everything. 

For my accessories I used my new heart eye sunglasses that I’m obsessed with! They’re so cute+unique and for under $10 they’re an amazing deal for YSL dupes that are $400.

Today I have so many errands I have to run and things I need to do around the house so I’m in for a busy day. However, I hope you all have a magical filled day 🙂

Isaac and I’s tradition after Disneyland is grabbing In-N-Out.

Happy Wednesday Loves! Yesterday after our classes, Isaac and I went to Disneyland since we haven’t gone in so long due to me spraining my ankle, my ear infections and just the weather being so bad. But yesterday was a great opportunity to go right before we get a huge storm. But oh man, the storm came and it was crazy! Around midnight we got a loud thunderstorm with so much lightning that was pretty scary. Now it’s just raining a lot unfortunately. 

I kept my outfit simple but kind of cute yesterday since in the daytime it was warm then got cold at night. I wore a thermal shirt with my windbreaker, some jeans, tennis shoes and a cute Disney beanie. 

I hope you all have a fantastic day 🙂

Valentines Date Ideas

f6ce37e3-2614-4824-85f6-47a229a899d2

With Valentines Day coming up soon, I’m so excited but nervous because I don’t have any plans yet plus I don’t know what to get Isaac this year. Last year was our first Valentines Day together so we both went all out to celebrate the day of love. I had to work all afternoon and night which meant we had to settle for a breakfast date but was still the best. For gifts, we got each other baskets of things we love. Isaac also got me an orchid that’s still blooming almost a year later

For date ideas I was thinking

Drive-In, movie night at home cuddled in bed or go to the movie theater to see The Notebook for just $5 at Harkins Theatres.

Dinner at either a new restaurant or a classic go-to spot you both enjoy.

Make dinner at home that both of you can be involved with; like homemade pizzas!!

Have a picnic in the park while catching the sunset.

Go for a car ride and see somewhere new.

Visit museums or go to an amusement park.

and that’s about all I can think of for date ideas

Whatever you end up doing on Valentines Day is special whether you spend it with someone or alone 🙂 Make it a great day and try making it special for others too. I love to give my coworkers and family members small gifts to make them feel extra special. Either grab festive treats or make them yourself and give them out on the 14th as a sweet surprise.

Happy Wednesday and Happy New Year Everyone! Yesterday was my anniversary with Isaac so we spent the day in Newport Beach shopping at Fashion Island. It was so fun getting to spend time with him and celebrate one year of being together 🙂 Isaac and I started off as friends in July of 2017 and we decided to start dating on January 1st of 2018 and it was the best decision I’ve ever made! Everyday I learn new things about him & I still get butterflies every time I see him. He makes me so happy and sometimes mad but I wouldn’t trade him for the world. Isaac truly is my best friend, the best photographer, plus so much more and I love him so much ♥♥

Festival Of Lights Recap

Last night, Isaac and I went to the Festival of Lights in Riverside at the Mission Inn and it was oh so pretty and festive with all of the Christmas lights on display 🙂 If you’re a local you should definitely check it out before it comes to an end on January 6th, 2019.

When we first got there, we went into the cutest book store which had thousands of books all over. I browsed around and found a cool book about Christmas in America and it was so interesting to see how people celebrate differently in the same country. But then Isaac showed me their basement and omg it was so creepy that I wanted out of there ASAP!

I’ve been going since I was a little kid and every year it can get a bit repetitive but going with people you love makes it extra special! Getting to go with Isaac this year was the best and I will cherish the memories we made together; forever

Have a great Monday!

xoxo, Liz

What I’m Thankful For

cropped-image11.jpeg

Wow where to begin, I can’t believe it’s already Thanksgiving Eve! This year has gone by so fast and so much has happened especially within this last month, which has made me realize that life is such a blessing and sadly it can end shortly. If you know me personally then I’m sure you already know that I lost my brother; Jacob on October 27th. This came as such a surprise and something I never thought would happen. During my brothers viewing the deacon said that a death of a young person is more difficult to deal with than that of an old person because we’re so used to old people dying that we don’t expect to lose someone so young. We know that one day their time will come to an end and we begin to accept it early on. However, Jacobs death came suddenly and way too soon. In September we celebrated his 23rd birthday with a bbq and had all of our family here at our home to celebrate his amazing life. Jacob was always such a sweet and thoughtful person. He had a contagious smile and a fun personality that I’ll miss forever. This loss hurts and it always will because a piece of our family is missing. But as a family we are taking everything one day at a time and starting to go on again with our lives. As the holidays approach I get saddened in the thought of it never being the same as years past. But with the amazing memories we have, it will last us for the rest of our lifetimes.

Two women I’m so thankful for are my sisters, they’ve been the best older sisters I could have ever been blessed with. We may not always get along but at the end of the day we love each other and our bonds are unbreakable. 

My parents are the people I’m most thankful for. Each and everyday I appreciate just how blessed I am to have them as my parents. They do so much for their kids for which I’m eternally grateful and at the end of the day I want to make them so proud.

I’ve been so blessed within the past 19 years of my life to have such an amazing family and within the past year I’ve met the best person that has changed my life in more ways than one and that’s my boyfriend, Isaac. He makes me a better person each and everyday, he encourages me, he’s the absolute sweetest, and he has the best heart. Everyday I’m so blessed and thankful to have not only him but his amazing family in my life. 

I’m also so grateful to each and everyone of you who take the time to read my posts. It means so much to me and I’m so happy I get to document my life on this platform.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family, laughter, and good food! Please be safe and appreciate every little moment

xoxo, Liz

Welcome To F&F

It’s been a loooong two years in the making to finally make me decide to wanna come back to blogging and I’m so excited to be back. I started Fringe and Flare in May of 2015 and I had such an amazing time blogging and making friends on social media as well as making connections with my readers. However, I ended my blog in October of 2016 to give my full time and attention to my senior year of high school. I had such a blast and I enjoyed it to the fullest and as soon as I graduated I began college in the summer. To say I had a wonderful first year of college is a lie and anyone who says that they enjoyed it, is a liar because that year hit me like a bus (Regina George style lol). But currently I’m in my sophomore year of college and so far it’s going way better than last year which I’m super thankful for.

Now that I’ve found down time in my work, school, and personal life I decided along with the help of my sweet boyfriend; Isaac to restart up my blog 🙂 This time around I want to incorporate more than just fashion on my blog because I’ve changed so much as a person within the last two years. So on my blog you will see fashion, beauty, DIYs cooking/baking, lifestyle posts and so much more! I’m so excited to be doing this again and whether you’re an OG reader of my blog or someone new, WELCOME 🙂

My posting schedule will be Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. You can sign up for email updates by scrolling down on my sidebar and follow me along on Instagram @fringeandflare
