First birthday living in Los Angeles!

My big goal for 2017 has finally been revealed on Coral Buttons…moving to Los Angeles!


Moving to LA has been the “big goal of 2017” I’ve hinted at on the blog many times before. I’ve been living in LA for almost a month now and I felt that my first birthday celebration here would be a great post to start my weekly posts again with.

I turned 23 yesterday and I went to the movies and out to eat with my boyfriend, Shawn then relaxed for the rest of the day. I wore a sparkly corset back dress with velvet teal (my fave color) heels!


Yesterday, I also thought about all the goals and tasks I accomplished in just 23 years. Sometimes it is easy to get discouraged and compare yourself to others who may seem like they are doing better than you financially, career-wise, etc.

You have to take a step back and look at everything you’ve done and you will realize you are doing a better than you think.


So thats what I did, so here is a top 5 list of accomplishments I should be proud to have achieved in 23 years:

1) Traveled to Kauai, Hawaii and Seoul, South Korea

2) Been in a happy and healthy relationship for almost 6 years

3) Graduated high school and college (a semester early)

4) Big chopped and now have healthy natural hair

5) Moved to Los Angeles of course!

Now it’s your turn! Take a look back over the years and write a list of what you are proud of yourself for achieving. This will boost your confidence and help you realize you are on the right track.

I’m already excited for my next birthday to see what I achieved in one year! Happy Sunday lovelies.

22nd Birthday Post

Hello everyone and Happy Holidays!

Last Friday, I celebrated my 22nd birthday! Yay! This year is special because I have big
things planned in regards to my future, life goals, and career goals.

Because of all of the exciting things I have planned for the year to come I am dubbing it: Year of Change ❤

Stay tuned for the amazing things to come 🙂 Now back to my birthday lol…

My lovely boyfriend Shawn and I had an exciting day. We first went to the National Aquarium where neither of us has been in over 10 years.

The aquarium had 3 new exhibits: Australia, Rain Forest, and Jellyfish exhibits.My favorite was the jellyfish exhibit where I found my new favorite sea creature, the Blue Blubber Jelly.

They are super cute! From the aquarium, we went to Kona Grill, an Asian and all things grilled. The food was delicious.

Then we ended the night with a comedy magic show at Illusions Bar and Lounge which was hilarious and very entertaining. Overall it was a great birthday and I loved my outfit. Get the look details below!

Orange jumpsuit: Windsor Store ($30)
Green Heels: Nordstrom Rack (on sale for $25) (plus my employee discount lol)

PS: My hair is also totally different! Post about this new look coming soon *hugs and kisses*

Happy Holidays!!!

Sweater Dress Selfie

Two weekends ago my roommate, a friend of ours, our friend’s roommate, and I went to a Halloween dance on my college campus.sweater dress

It was quite chilly that night so instead of wearing costumes for the dance, we all thought it would be cool to wear super classy sweater dresses with heels. I must admit, we looked great!

In this post is two of my favorite “sweater dress selfies” from that night. I purchased this lovely sweater dress from a cute store called Strawberry.
sweater d2The dress is a deep burgundy color with a silver zipper. It is long sleeve and went a little past my knees and cinched in a bit there.

I love this dress because it is very slimming and super warm. Perfect for a fall night out or even a date night dinner with your significant other.

I paired my sweater dress with black ankle booties. Since the dress is so long, I figured shoes or heels that stopped at my ankle would be perfect.

I still have my long Marley twists in my hair as well. I styled them in a big half bun half down up do.

I also wore small black earrings and light lip gloss to finish off the look. It was a great night and I was not only super stylish, but also warm and cozy!

Have a fantastic week everyone. Stay beautiful! ❤

Prom Season

Prom photos are appearing all over my social media accounts,keep-calm-it-s-prom-season so it is easy to say that it is prom season. I can’t believe that my own prom was just three years ago!

It is surreal to think that three years ago was my senior prom and in just one year I will be graduating college. Life is truly amazing ❤

In this post I wanted to show my lovely readers my chic prom look. It was an adventure finding my prom dress because I looked in at least 5 to 6 different place for my dress.

I didn’t really know what style of dress I wanted, but I knew I wanted it to be blue or teal specifically since that is my favorite color. At one place I found a beautiful high-low, feathery light blue dress but it was wayyyy overpriced ($600 to be exact!).

prom2So I left the lovely feather dress behind and looked elsewhere. I went to a popular mall in my area and stumbled upon a store named Pretty Woman, which had dresses for all occasions.

I went in and found a gorgeous dress, my only problem with it was that it was black! I really didn’t want to wear black on my prom night, so I asked the owner if she could get the same dress in teal and that is how I found the gorgeous dress I wore to prom. (and it was only $80!)

My dress was a teal halter top A-line gown with rhinestones lined down the middle of it. It was ruched at the torso area and was floor length.

I paired the dress with dangling silver studded earrings, a lipromght blue and white corsage, and silver heels. My prom date, who is also my lovely boyfriend, matched me perfectly and I was super worried about matching because he hadn’t seen my dress until the day of prom!

He wore a teal button up shirt with a blue and white tie, a white vest, white dress pants, and sleek white dress shoes. Prom was a lot of fun and all of my classmates looked beautiful and handsome.

Prom was probably one of my most fashionable days ever lol ^-^

Easter Outfit

I know that I am a few days late, but I just had to show my lovely readers my Easter/Resurrection Sunday outfit!eggs

This Easter was the first time in almost three years where I could actually be home from college for the holiday. That was super exciting!

I got to go home to my church I grew up in and had an awesome message from the pastor. My boyfriend, who isn’t big on religion, even came with me to church as well, so that was sweet.

Now back to my outfit info! I actually didn’t find my Easter outfit until the Friday and Saturday before Easter. Friday, after my Passover service, my family and I went to Wal-Mart and that is where I found the skirt I wore.

On Saturday, my boyfriend and I went to one of our favorite malls and I found the shirt I wore. I had my heels for a while now because they are the same ones I wore for my high school graduation.

Outfit details ~

I wore a floral patterned lace crop top with a slight high neck. I didn’t know that it was a crop top until I actually tried it on, but I loved the top so much that I had to buy it.

I paired the lace top with a mint colored tribal patterned skirt. The skirt has a high slit in it, but doesn’t show too much!

Since my shirt was a crop top, I decided to pull the skirt up and wear it as a high-waist skirt. I paired the skirt and top with heels with a small bow on the front of them.

I really adore this outfit and it was super affordable. In total my outfit only cost $21!

How was your Easter everyone and what cute clothes did you wear? ❤ ❤

S.A.S Induction Outfit

Earlier today I had to pleasure to attend the 2nd annual induction for one of my college clubs, Sisters Aspiring to Success or SAS!sas induction1

Today, SAS welcomed 16 new ladies or Sassies, as we like to call them, into our lovely sisterhood. SAS is a women’s organization that focuses on academic excellence, leadership, and service.

In this post I will show you gorgeous readers my SAS induction outfit.

I wore a dark red A-line dress with a small V-neck line. A-line dress work well for women who have pear shaped bodies like myself, because we are smaller up top and a little wider on the bottom.

I paired my A-line dress with silver accessories. For jewelry, I wore pearl and silver studded earrings and a silver and white necklace that I purchased when I went to South Korea.

sas induction2I also wore a variety of silver bracelets. To complete my induction look, I paired my dress and jewelry with sparkly silver heels.

I also wore lipstick again for the second time ever! The first time I ever wore lipstick was for my birthday, you can see that post here.

You may not be able to see my lipstick too well in the picture, but the color is called  Coffee Craze by CoverGirl and it is a deep shade of brown. I love it!

I hope you enjoyed this sassy post and continue to enjoy your weekends ❤
