Beaty Blender Review and How To Use

BEAUTY BLENDER REVIEW So I know I’m super late on the beauty blender wagon, but I finally caved and bought a kit from amazon.com 38 dollars later (eek!). I was really skeptical especially for having to pay that much for a sponge. Before I opened my beauty blender I watched the how to video on the official beauty blender website and read tons of reviews and watched a bunch of youtube videos. I’m happy I did, because it’s not like any old makeup sponge.You have…

Affordable Way to Clean Makeup Brushes

CHEAP AND EFFECTIVE WAY TO CLEAN MAKEUP BRUSHES It’s very important to clean your makeup brushes, especially if you have sensitive and acne prone skin. The makeup builds up with bacteria and your facial oils every time you use your brushes. So while you might not clean them everyday (because who really has time for that), you do need to make an effort to clean them once a week ideally.Here’s my cheap and easy way to clean my make up…

Sometimes Your Just Surrounded by Assholes

There’s only 41 days left before I am a Mrs. I am checking things off my list of things to do and trying to stay focused on living a healthy, full, and productive life. Sometimes when I stop and look around I get a little panicky. I try not to have too much free time these days because it can cause anxiety and some depression on my part. Then last night, during my yoga class my teacher said, “Before we…

What a Good Manicure Taught Me

It’s amazing what a good manicure can do for you. I like to go to this little place in Studio City called La Flora Nails. The place is small with no bells or whistles, but they give the best manicures I’ve ever had. Usually when I leave a place, I have cuts or some hang nails because of the aggression that the nail technician took out on my cuticles, even when I tell them that my skin is really delicate…

What Pretty Little Liars Has Taught Me

As I sit here in anticipation for the midnight screening of The Hunger Games, I can’t help thinking about how movies and TV have influenced fashion.  For me, I have always gone to the extreme in inspiration. When I was obsessed with the movie, The Three Amigos, my brother drove down to Tijuana and got me an authentic Three Amigos outfit complete with a matching sombrero. You can bet I wore that thing out and about. When the movie Clueless…

Clowning and Life

This year I told myself I was going to take more action and do things that scare me or make me want to hide. One of these things is to take a clown class. Back in NYC when I first took the class, I use to dread it. I would love watching everyone else participating, but I hated it when it was my turn. I could never just let go, release and just have fun. It was a very dark…

The Many Phases of My Style and Life

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the friendships that I’ve had in my life.  It seems that there is a correlation between my wardrobe and my friendships. Much of my wardrobe and style choices seem to come from whom my friends are at the time, and what stage of life I am in. For example, when I was in middle school, my surfer girl wardrobe phase emerged as a result of my need to fit in with my surroundings…

What We Can Learn From a Disney Princess

I remember when I use to only wear costumes as a little girl. My favorite was Snow White, probably because at the time there were no other brunette princesses and I identified with her the most. My sister use to play Sleeping Beauty with me by dressing me up like Aurora and I would pretend to be asleep as she recited the prolog to the Disney film, she even made me a cape to go with my Snow White dress…
