12.22.13: Of hosting dinners

Hello, dolls!!! 🙂 We are only 3 days away from Valentine’s day and I am so excited!! I know most of you are looking forward on spending that lovely day with your special someone wink wink. I, on the other hand, is so thrilled to be with my favorite Vday dates — my parents!! My Dad has always made it special for me since..ever. I am planning to do something that I am good at for them this coming Friday…and I can’t wait to share it on this blog,hopefully SOON and not 3 months late.

For MZATC’s annual Christmas dinner, we had a “Coachella themed” party. Since we couldn’t all go to California, we brought Coachella to us…anyway we are just up for the dressing up part if ever we can so whatevs lol.I like themed dinners! It makes it easier for me to come up with a menu and cook more than 2 dishes.A  themed dinner will not be complete without dressing the part,that’s the second best thing about it — I get to dress up!. I’ve been crazy about hosting parties lately, and this is just one of the many rooftop parties that I will be sharing on this blog 🙂

#throwback: Cause it’ll be like this again. Wonderful memories in Charm City

My outfit, was once again, very last minute. The problem that I always have when hosting parties is that I only have a VERY very small amount of time for myself.

Having my sister’s closet beside mine is a blessing…for me at least hahaha.

Borrowed this studded ombre shorts from her 🙂

She gave me this floral corset for Christmas (or was it my birthday?) 2 years ago, and I am so happy that I finally got to wear it!

Made my outfit look more “me” by pairing with my favorite sandals from shoedazzle

Instant retro look with the hippie bands and heart shaped sunnies that I got from my baby girl, Diane! 🙂
