  • Bright Green and Yellow Look - May 31st, 2011
  • Try this fun, bright look on a sunny day out to the beach or a picnic in the park. There are bright pops of yellow and green on the inner and outer part of the lid. I used a paler green color on the center lid as a transition between the two vibrant colors. I also applied eye pencils in a darker green and a gold along the lower lash line to complete the look.

  • Fashion Friday: Episode 66 - May 27th, 2011
  • Nordstrom is having their Half-Yearly Sale for women and kids going on now through Sunday, June 5! I stopped by my local Nordstrom store on the first day of the sale (Wednesday, May 25th) to look at some shoes. I ended up buying two pairs of heels — a black polka dot “Apple Pie” heel from Poetic Licence and a black patent leather “Shimmer Sandal” by Michael Kors!

  • Maker Faire 2011 + Haul - May 25th, 2011
  • Maker Faire, the ultimate DIY festival, was here last weekend in the SF Bay Area. This is one of my favorite times of the year — when nerds of all ages come together for an event that encourages learning, being creative, and exploring arts, crafts, engineering, and sciences. Here are the cute items by local artists/designers and a totally useless electronics kit I hauled! Also check out a needle felted rose hair clip that I made from materials I bought at last year’s Maker Faire. :)

  • Purple and Green Look - May 23rd, 2011
  • This look features one of my favorite green eye shadows from Inglot Cosmetics. I also used other Inglot colors — two shades of purple on the outer V and crease and a light pink color for highlight. For fun, I created a subtle double-winged line for my eyeliner and flicked a lime green gel liner that’s similar in color to the green eye shadow between the two wings.

  • Fashion Friday: Episode 65 - May 20th, 2011
  • Scarves are my favorite accessory, because they instantly add color, texture, and/or pattern to an outfit. They also keep you warm! I got this colorful pom pom scarf from It’s unique and pretty sizable at 52 inches by 52 inches! The pom poms are actually quite bigger than I expected when I saw the picture online (they are about an inch in diameter), but I love how they stand out and are so colorful. This scarf really livens up a simple outfit!
