Sisterly Love

April 30, 2011

Who am I going to miss most of all when I am in Philadelphia? Why my little sister, partner-in-crime, and blogger extraordinaire Natalie, of course! This girl means the world to me. We always have a good time together, whether we’re exploring the lands of Southeast Asia or making our way around the bustling NYC. We’ve done it all together and let’s just say it’s never boring. Nat’s post on her blog about my move to Philly to work for Free People was so heartwarming. I couldn’t ask for a better, more supportive sister. Thank goodness the bonds of sisterly love can never be broken no matter how far apart we are!

These little photo booth shots were taken last weekend at our local mall, where we were shooting one of the videos for Volcom’s Fall 2011 denim video series which I styled. The theme for this one was sister shopping day! It was so much fun frolicking around the mall like the mall rats we are at heart as innocent bystanders looked on in confusion. Can’t wait for you guys to see it when it comes out!

I have an interview with a reporter from the Daily Bruin, which is the UCLA newspaper (always a weekly read back when I was an undergrad there not too long ago). So going to head back to Bruin-landia today (a.k.a. Westwood). Kind of pumped!

Chinatown Boba

April 28, 2011
Blazer – H&M, Sweater – BB Dakota from Tilly Boutique, Jeans – Sold Design Lab, Bag – Hobo International, Shoes – 80%20, Bracelets – Nine West, Boba Milk Tea – from Quickly in Chinatown, Los Angeles (best place evaaaaaaaaaaaaaa)

When I leave for Philadelphia, the one thing that I am going to really miss about my sweet Los Angeles (you know, other than my family, friends, and the weather) is my favorite little boba shop in Chinatown. There’s nothing better than a cool milk tea and some squishy little bobas to cure any little spell. Anyone know of any good boba places in Philly that I can fulfill my cravings at? I’m trying to make the most of my last days in SoCal, spending as much time as I can with my family and friends. Not to mention, packing up my whole life. Despite the stress of a fast-paced move, my sights are sparkly and wide. Like some wear their hearts on their sleeves, I wear my sparkle on my sweater. Dress how you feel.

Thank you for all the warm and supportive words you all sent my way yesterday regarding my new job and my big move to Philadelphia. They really mean the whole wide world to me! You all are the BEST!

BIG NEWS: I’m Moving to Philadelphia!!!

April 27, 2011
And finally I am ready to let you all know my big news!!!! I will be permanently moving to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in a little less than two weeks for my new job at Free People’s home office! It really is a dream come true! This is going to be a major life change . . . being away from my family and loved ones, all the way on the other side of the country. It still hasn’t hit me yet that this is all happening . . . and oh so fast! I don’t start until May 9, but my sister and I already had a little tear fest going the other day in the car, stuck in traffic to be exact. I am going to miss my little baby sister the most of all. I love her so much. But no matter how many miles away we are from each other, we’ll always be there for each other! She is the peanut butter to my jelly!

On the other side of the emotional spectrum, I am so so excited to be joining one of the most talented teams in fashion (not to mention one of my most favorite brands!). Ever since I picked up my first Free People catalog way back in 2006, I always dreamed of working for the brand . . . and now look at me! Crazy how things turn out, huh? I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. But I must say, I owe a lot of what I have accomplished so far to this blog. Without the dedication that I have given Color Me Nana so far, I wouldn’t be where I am now or be having the amazing opportunities coming my way almost unexpectedly. You’ve all seen me explore different aspects of the fashion industry, from a writer for The Fashion Spot to the social media coordinator of Volcom Girls, and I feel like I’ve finally found my groove. So in turn, I must thank you all for supporting me and reading me little old bloggy blogster of a blog. I couldn’t be able to do what I love without you all! And that really says a lot 🙂

I am still going to make sure to keep this blog up and running when I’m in Philly. I’d never leave you guys in the dark! I love you all too much! My head is in the sky right now, and I hope you all stick around to enjoy the ride with me as I jump into this new chapter of my life. So the fortune in my fortune cookie did happen to really ring true: “Your dream will come true when you least expect it”


As long as you follow your heart and never let go of your dreams, you’ll find your rhythm eventually.
Now, are there any bloggers or readers in Philadelphia who can give me some tips about places in the city to live / things to do / places to see? Anyone want to be my official tour guide? haha. I’ve only spent one whole day last summer exploring Philadelphia, and though that’s not enough to really get too know a place, I know that I will love calling this place my new home. And I’m only 2 hours away from NYC! GAH!
