Balboa Island & Newport Peninsula.

Just a quick post to share some pictures of a wonderful day spent on Balboa Island and the Newport Peninsula.

On a completely different note – I wanted to address a comment from a previous post. Believe me, I am all about the freedom of speech and expessing an opinion. HOWEVER, telling someone that they look like a “fugly gypsy … bitch” is not something I would consider constructive criticism. If you don’t like the way I dress, look or write (someone also commented on how they HATE that I always say yummy and need to stop it) please do not feel obligated to waste your time looking at my blog. I value my amazing readers who stop by daily and post the sweetest comments so SO much, but if you feel the need to be rude and disrespectful I honestly don’t think you should be reading my blog.

With that being said, I hope everyone has a YUMMY :) weekend and if you guys have any questions you can still ask away in the Q&A post below.

    It's unfortunate that someone felt the need to be so negative and critical. I love the photos you post of both food and fashion on your blog. You are definitely one of my favorite bloggers and I've never been interested in fashion. I just like your style and your blog. Hope those comments didn't ruffle your feathers too much. Nothing that a margarita on the beach won't fix ;)

  5. Kimberley says:

    Your pictures are unbelievable! So nice!

    WOW, to that comment, I know bad comments are hard to ignore because they cant hurt but girl that person is just jealous! You are gorgeous inside and out and this is your blog and you can say or upload anything you want :)

    Have fun on the rest of your trip!

    This looks like so much fun!
    and wow! People who make comments like that are SO annoying and just insecure with themselves so they feel the need to bring everyone else down.

    Ich stimme zu, dass es absolut unangebracht ist, mit Worten wie 'bitch' etc. um sich zu werfen – solche Kommentare solltest du auf keinen Fall ernst nehmen.
    Allerdings muss ich sagen, dass ich dieses widerliche Geschleime zwischen Bloggerinnen ("Owwwmygawwwd I love your dress/bag/toenails/elbows/whatsoever, I loooove you sweety. xoxoxoxoxoxo") mindestens genauso abstoßend & auch ein wenig verlogen finde. Ich habe den Eindruck, dass viele Blogs (leider auch deiner) lediglich Plattformen sind, um sich gegenseitig das Ego zu pushen und nach Komplimenten zu fischen. Kommt dann einmal ein kritisches Kommentar, herrscht gleich höchste Empörung. Wer mit Komplimenten umgehen kann, soll auch mit Kritik umgehen können. Ich habe nicht das Gefühl dass du das kannst, denn auf jedes Kommentar, das vielleicht KEIN Kompliment enthält oder nicht mit Millionen "xoxoxo"s versehen ist, reagierst du patzig, beleidigt und musst dich rechtfertigen

    Ihr Modebloggerinnen müsst alle mal auf den Boden der Tatsachen zurückkommen. Viele von euch sind hübsch, gut gekleidet, mehr oder weniger bekannt innerhalb eures kleinen Kreises – im wahren Leben bedeutet das aber zumeist nichts. Deswegen sind auch die Kommentare, die hier stehen, mehr oder weniger nichtssagend.

    @anonym: ich stimme dir zum teil auch zu … deswegen sage ich ich auch nichts wenn jemand (wie neulich erst) schreibt "well your face certainly isnt the prettiest but I like your outfit" … das finde ich völlig OK und jeder hat seine eigene meinung, die ich auf meinem blog gerne lese (deswegen habe ich noch nie einen einzigen kommentar gelöscht – ausser spam). ich schreibe bestimmt keinen blog um meine täglich dosis an komplimenten abzubekommen … aber wenn mich jemand als "bitch" bezeichnet finde ich das schon etwas heftig, denn ich glaube diese person würde bestimmt nicht auf der straße zu mir kommen und mir den gleichen satz ins gesicht sagen.

    wir blogger sind auch nur menschen und als fugly (=fucking ugly) oder bitch wird glaube ich keine gerne bezeichnet. abgesehen davon, dass ich es im "echten" leben auch sehr unangebracht finde mit so einer sprache zu sprechen.

    :)

    don't worry about the other post. the person who posted this didn't even had the courage to write that under a real name….. doesn't that say everything?

    haters will always hate, but once you have people that hate you it means that you're successful.

    Please don't stop blogging because of stupid people like that!
    I honestly think they're just jealous of you. You seem to have a pretty nice life, a great sense of style,and you're really pretty, NOT "fugly" at all- anyone would be jealous!

    Hallo Vicky,

    ich lese deinen Blog nun schon seit einer ganzen Zeit und das sehr gerne! Du machst wunderbare Fotos, hast tolle Ideen und mega Outfits. Du bist eine wirkliche Inspiration, neben der Tatsache, dass ich mir deine Bilder auch gerne anschaue, weil du eine attraktive Frau bist! Ich glaube nicht, dass dein Blog(und viele andere Modeblogs) geschrieben werden, um sich möglichst von anderen "bauchpinseln" zu lassen, sondern ich glaube einfach, dass du genau wie viele andere die Möglichkeiten des internationalen Austauschs mit Gleichgesinnten nutzen wollen. Du machst das super, ich finde es vor allem toll, wie sicher du in englisch formulierst!

    I just like participating in your life! You absolutely proved your eloquence and manners answering those inappropriate and offending comments! You did just right!

    I just don´t understand why people waist their time reading and commenting things they seam to hate that much…!

    Have fun in CA and be back home safe!

    XOXO, Julia

  27. LabelSnob says:

    You are beautiful and your blog is beautiful! I just recently discovered it and love it!!! Some people (meaning the ones saying those rude hateful things) are just ignorant!
    And I'm with ya- I say YUMMY every 5 minutes!!!
    Take care!

  28. Zoe Gabrielle says:

    Well done! Haters are always going to hate, and thats why they are pathetic. You are absolutely correct, what is the point of hurting feeling?!

    I will never understand why some people can not follow the simplest of rules, "if you dont have anything nice to say. . . done say it at all!"

    That being said you look like a beautiful gypsy!

  29. AlexOlm says:

    You are beautiful, and have amazing style. Anyone who makes mean comments is unhappy with their life and is jealous of yours. Stay away haters. You're the best :) xoxo

  30. Hilary says:

    forget the haters vicky! we love you and those haters need to get over themselves. Love all of your posts!
    xoxo

  31. BloomCoco says:

    I can't believe anyone would say such nasty things to you! You are so beautiful and your life looks like so much fun! Don't ever let anyone, especially someone hiding behind their computer screen, try to bring you down.

    Your vacation looks like so much fun! I live just south of where you are, in San Diego, so I know just how lovely it has been this week and how much fun Laguna and LA can be! I hope you are having a wonderful spring break :)
