[ ♡ ] Look of the Day – 12/08/10

I’m trying to be more strict on capturing my makeup and outfit everyday but it’s hard because my schedule is all over the place. Anyhow, here’s my look for today.


• Eyes: Stila single pan colors in kalahoo and batura and a sparkly blue smudge pot
• Lips: stila lipglaze in sweet orange
• Cheeks: Coastal scents cheek palette, the top left purple one


^this shot is pre-mascara


Basic work wear, nothing amazing today 🙂

[ ♡ ] F21 Delivery outside my door steps

I got my forever21 order in this morning! I also stalked this one like crazy and since it was sent to an old email, it was extra work. Unlike the elf order, I’m mostly satisfied with the order!



My biggest box so far!


^Xti and I both got these shoes. They’re cute but a little big.


Here is the package but I forgot to take individual pictures of the Jeans. I got two pairs of jeans but they’re too big so I’m giving them away.


This cute Korean-esque shirt!


Thin sweat pants. I actually almost bought this exact one at forever21 the other day but realized that I already ordered it online.


I needed a new black clutch and I’ve been eyeing this baby for a while.

The inside, just perfect!


Beautiful frosted chandelier earrings. I like it but chandelier earrings don’t match me that much.

Overall, I’m satisfied with my order and everything fits except for the jeans. I’ll pawn them off on my sisters or return it in store for something else.

[ ♡ ] Daily Outing – 12/07/10 Tangled birthday!

Yesterday was a jam packed family day! I took the kids to go watch Tangled and I must say, one of the best movies of the year!


^here’s my sneaky shot from my seat. Seriously, animated though it may be, it’s really good. The humor was very 21st century, even the characters were very modern yet old timey. The storyline was not your typical Rapunzel story and was just so cute! I really want to write a spoiler but I won’t. I do want to go watch it again though!

After the movie we headed back to my grandmas and did a small surprise birthday party for my aunt. Here are some snap shots:


I was so tired when I got home but it was a good day!

[ ♡ ] Elf Order in!

I finally got my elf order in after stalking my tracking number for a week (so really, it hasn’t been that long.) I ordered a few of the new elf mineral brushes during cyber Monday because it was 50% off and they looked nice online. I ordered two sets and two extra brushes (blender and lip brushes.) Here are some shots:





^the first set is a 5 piece set including a powder brush, lash comb, angled brush, and two flat shadow brushes (one might be a concealer brush.)

^The second set I got is a 4 piece mini set (the kabuki is missing from this picture.) It comes with a kabuki, a blender brush and a shadow brush.

^here’s the missing kabuki. As you can see, it is very thin, not dense at all.


^my blender brush


^the lip brush. I bought this for the lip pans in my tarte palette.

Now onto my assessment of the brushes. They look nice and are eco-friendly. Visually, they look like eco tools brushes. The elf claim that they are soft is true; the bristles are incredibly soft and nice on your skin. Now, the reality: I’m very disappointed with the majority of them because they are all on the thin side. None of them are as dense as they look and for the price you’re paying, should be denser. The biggest disappointment was the single blender brush. It’s so thin, I don’t think I’ll be able to use it. I can’t even swirl it around on my hand correctly. The pouches that come with the sets are also a disappointment but I already knew that so its not a big factor for me. The other disappointment was the kabuki brush. It is very small and very thin. It looks like a toy brush. I will probably toss that one.

I actually ordered a full set of the elf mineral brushes just a day before reciveing these in the mail because my little sister wanted some but as soon as I got these I canceled my 2nd elf order. These brushes are definitely not worth purchasing (least of all, a second time.) It’s sad because I’ve had good experiences with elf brushes before. I really like their basic blending brush and professional flat top brush. Hopefully they come out with better brushes next time.

Clever! That little pop of robin blue against their dark clothing…I can always appreciate a nice piece of advertisement.

[ ♡ ] Lanvin for H&M review

I actually missed the Lanvin for H&M launch a few weeks ago but I have been researching and coveting prior to the launch. These are all long gone by now but I do still like looking at them 🙂 I’ve put a heart around the ones I like!


^the bottom left corner dress is by far my favorite!

I think even if I did stand in line for the launch, I probably would not have bought anything. The only thing I want is that dress and it’s still about $300. One day! Fighting!
