About Me

About Erica Leigh Macaranas of Sweets and Hearts
Sweets and Hearts is a personal style blog written by me, Erica Leigh Macaranas, a Filipino-American born and raised in Southern California. I currently work in fashion and am also a contributor over on Bystander Mag. This blog is where I post my outfits and write about my favorite shopping finds, fashion events I attend, lifestyle, and interests in photography, DIY culture, food, music, and of course, fashion!

I'm a fashion history nerd and am enthusiastic about fun patterns, thrifting, and bright colors. Though I'm typically drawn to feminine details, novelty prints, preppy styles, and vintage-inspired looks, I also like incorporating modern and streetstyle trends into my outfits. It really just depends on my mood.

When I'm not crafting and making things, I can usually be found shopping, reading, gossiping with friends, baking cupcakes, Netflix-bingeing, people-watching, and sending too many texts of dog photos to my sister. ♥

Also: the graphics and layout were designed by me, and the photos are mine as well (except when credited to another source, of course!). Most recent photos are usually taken with my Canon Rebel XSi, using my 50mm 1.8 lens.
