  • Chanel Illusion d’Ombre Long Wear Eyeshadow in “Vision” - July 31st, 2012
  • After I purchased my first Chanel Illusion d’Ombre eyeshadow in “Mirifique”, I was hooked! I’ve acquired a few of these Illusion d’Ombre eye shadows over the past few months as a result. I purchased this gold one called “89 Vision” when I was in Europe earlier this month. The sparkle on these eye shadows are so beautiful, and they have very minimal fallout for a product packed with so much shimmer. Check out the swatch to see the gorgeous gold sparkle!

  • Just Married <3 - July 19th, 2012
  • I just wanted to share a little preview of my wedding that took place at Meadowood Resort in Napa Valley, California. The photos won’t be ready until a few more weeks, but here’s a sneak peek that our photographers sent us the day after our wedding. :) My husband and I planned every single detail of the wedding ourselves, and now after all the brainstorming, coordinating, and DIY projects, we are thrilled that everything went as perfectly as we could’ve imagined!
