Hello, lovelies! I was going through my wardrobe the other day, trying to find something to wear. I happened to notice that this crop top and blazer were practically made for each other. Although different brands, they share the same, army-forrest green. Naturally, I decided to pair them together for a classic, going-out look! Nowadays, if you are in a cinch about what to wear to the club, crop top and high-waisted pants are the go-to. The blazer is a nice touch because it actually gives it bit more class to the look.

Let’s Get Nakd: A Cereal Bar Review

Greetings! When I have my early morning classes, I like to cherish my sleep for as long as possible (who wouldn’t?). One way I can do that is taking breakfast on the go. Natural Balance Foods was sweet enough to send me this lovely variety pack of healthy cereal bars. I would not testify a product if I truly didn’t enjoy it!

 These Nakd bars were delicious and very different from the usual granola bars. What I like is that the package clearly labels the ingredients, which are always very few, so you know exactly what you’re consuming. Although, my only gripe is that since the ingredients were minimal, sometimes the flavor was hard to determine. They are also are a very soft texture so it’s easy to eat.

Nowadays, convenience and food often lead to unhealthy meals. These certainly defy that and are a great, quick breakfast or afternoon snack. Plus, as they are so healthy, they re guilt free! Natural Balance Foods is predominantly based in the UK, but are gradually trying to break into the US market. Get them here and you get free delivery until April 30th, 2016! My favorite flavors were definitely Banana Crunch and Caffe Mocha!

10 Facts About Me

Hey, lovelies! I have yet to get real all-deep and personal with you guys. Personally, I love when other bloggers go beyond the surface and expose more of themselves. It is nice to know about the blogger beyond just the poised pictures and branded clothes. I realized I have yet to do this, so I thought what better way than to share 10 random facts about me. I encourage all other bloggers to do this too! It’s a fun way to just break the internet barrier. Let’s all be friends, okay? 🙂

1. I have a huge affection towards any type of animal. I am the type of person to go out of my way to cross the street if I see a cute dog just to ask if I can pet it. When I get my own official place, I am definitely going to own a dog and a bunny. My boyfriend also wants a love bird and a chinchilla (or something like that). We’re gonna have a crowded house, haha!

My family dog, Kono. Such a cutie!

2. I am currently in college studying international business. Once I graduate, I hope to pursue a career that will let me combine both my business degree and my love for fashion.

3. I was born in Busan, South Korea and was adopted. I came to America when I was 4 months old, so I don’t remember anything about Korea. I definitely want to travel back there one day and maybe try and locate my birth mom? We’ll see!

4. I don’t know Korean, but being fluent was always a goal of mine. In middle school I attempted to teach myself via language guides and internet resources, however it was pretty unsuccessful. Now, I am taking Korean in school and am able to communicate a little! 안녕하세요!

5. I love traveling, although I have not done much of it. In the future, I hope to have the time and resources to travel the world. Learning about cultures is a passion of mine. I watch Anthony Bourdain religiously and wish I could have his job.

6. I am a homebody at heart. I love days where I can just spend my time relaxing at home. Give me a good movie and some junk food and I am set.

7. I have always been a very independent person. I do not need constant interaction with my peers and a lot of times, I prefer being alone. I realize it kind of sounds sad in retrospect, but I am sure those who can relate will understand.

8. I love foooood. Sometimes I reevaluate my life and wonder why I am not joining the food industry.  A dream job of mine would to be a food critic. As a very adventurous eater, I am willing to try almost anything once. Along with traveling, I hope to one day go on a food excursion and try new dishes from all around the world — Food Network hire me!

9. If you catch me listening to music, it is usually rap, hip hop, r&b, or old school. My favorites are A$AP Rocky, Kanye, and Trey Songz. However, I have been listening to a lot of Future and Bryson Tiller as of lately. Leave me song recommendations!


10. I love am addicted to coffee. I can usually take it any way because it honestly depends on my mood. Majority of the time though, I prefer to drink it black.

Now, that you know me a little bit more, I hope we can connect on a more personal level! In return, leave me one random fact about you in the comments! As always, thanks for reading! ♡

Updates

Hi, lovelies! I finally purchased a domain name for this blog — about time. I am not sure why I hesitated, but felt it was something that finally had to be done. You can now catch me at www.anenclothedcognition.com. Also blog related, I was wondering what sort of content my readers are interested in? Obviously I will continue to publish the usual outfit posts, but I was wondering if there was any other sort of content you would be interested in seeing? I am open to anything! My biggest concern is to just make sure that you all generally enjoy reading this blog. I greatly appreciate your continuous support and love. The comments you leave me make me smile and brighten my day! Thank you for taking the time to give me feedback!

Winter Whites

There is nothing quite as crisp as an all white outfit. Personally, I think white is a color appropriate during any time of the year. As I recently acquired my first pair of white denim, I went and wore it with this equally as bright, crocodile-textured sweatshirt. I have been all about comfort as of lately and of course went for my favorite Asics. I used to wear heeled boots as my everyday shoe, but these have definitely taken over and nothing else seems as appealing. Now, I have a massive desire to enlarge my sneaker collection, but my wallet is telling me otherwise. Oh well. Something to save up for, right?

Calling out to all of my blogger babes, does anyone shoot their own outfit photos? Unfortunately, I do not have a photographer and prefer to take my shots myself via good ol’ timer. I was just wondering if anyone else runs their blog the same way and had any tips to shoot really good outfit photos. Although I am fairly used to it by now, I still wish my photos were a bit better quality. Input greatly appreciated! And what is your favorite photo editor?
