  • Make Up For Ever Purple Makeup Look - July 18th, 2011
  • I thought I’d have some fun creating a really purple Make Up For Ever look. I used three MUFE eye shadows and a MUFE lipstick here, but as always you can just find similar colors in your own stash (though MUFE has some beautiful bold eye shadow colors). Since all the eye shadows I used were matte, I chose a lipstick with a pearly finish for a different effect.


  • Fashion Friday: Episode 73 - July 15th, 2011
  • While I was in Hawaii last week, my fiancĂ© and I celebrated our 5-year anniversary. Before dinner on the night of our anniversary, he gave me this Chanel bag that had 2 boxes inside! I was really excited, because I didn’t own anything Chanel except for makeup. Read the post to see what was inside! <3


  • Nurturing Force Facial/Body Blotting Paper - July 13th, 2011
  • If your skin tends to get oily/shiny throughout the day, Nurturing Force is your new best friend! Their Facial/Body Blotting Paper removes shine, perspiration, dirt, and oil without removing or smudging your makeup. The paper is soft yet strong, handmade with natural fiber, and comes in unscented or 3 Aromatherapy varieties (Wellness Aloe Vera, Fragrant Lavender, and Aromatic Rose). This powder-free blotting paper really gets rid of shine without getting rid of makeup!


  • Sunset Beach Makeup Look - July 11th, 2011
  • This makeup look was inspired by sun setting on a beach, when the sky lights up in orange hues that contrasts the blue ocean horizon. I used two shades of orange on the lid — a lighter shimmer and a darker matte. The shimmer next to the matte color creates a glistening effect. I applied a bright blue eye shadow on the lower lash line to represent the ocean.


  • Fashion Friday: Episode 72 - July 8th, 2011
  • I’ve always been a fan of Betsey Johnson — whether she designs socks (see Episode 26) or raincoats (Episode 40), I love them all! I bought three pieces from her 2011 swimwear collection that has an adorable picnic theme: a cover-up dress, bikini top, and bikini bottom — complete with bows and ruffles! I plan to wear the dress with the bikini bottom when I’m hanging out with friends by the pool, just getting my feet wet or sitting in the spa, and I’m wearing the bikini in Hawaii this week!
