How to Get Kendall Jenner’s Makeup

August 26, 2016 Makeup & Hair, Videos

Kendall Jenner is the prettiest of the “Kardashian” clan (even though she’s a Jenner). There. I said it. Prettier than Kylie (who I adore), prettier than Kim (who I respect), and pretty much hotter than all of the hustling sisters (although Khloe is in amazing shape now and Kourtney is a badass mom). I love Kendall Jenner because she’s “natural”. When I look at her, I don’t immediately think, “I need to get Botox injections and lip filler to lookRead More

Marc Jacobs Beauty Haul – Nail Polish & Lipstick

August 22, 2016 Beauty, Product Reviews

I recently dropped by my local Marc Jacobs store to get a closer look at some of its featured cosmetic products, and okay… I maaay have walked away with a few new favorite products. If you watch my YouTube videos at all, you know I have a slight obsession with Marc Jacobs products. Everything from MJB brushes to blushes fills my cosmetic collection, and I almost always find myself reaching for the same glossy black and silver packaging when applyingRead More

Meet Mylo

August 8, 2016 Pets

On August 4, 2016, Tony and I brought home the most amazing blessing ever: our little Mylo. Part Pitbull, part lord only knows what else (Labrador? Corgi? Dachsund?), Mylo was born on May 20, 2016 in Fresno, California, then quickly deposited at the San Francisco SPCA where we discovered, then rescued him from the shelter. When Tony and I first decided we wanted a puppy, it began as an almost scary discussion. We both knew we wanted a dog, butRead More

How to Contour a Broken Nose

I hate my nose. Of all the features I’ve been blessed with, my nose is the one feature that just makes me look at my face and say, “WHYYYY?!” During a game of tag with third grade classmates, I was running full-speed across freshly-rained-on pavement. Of course I slipped, skidded across the bumpy concrete (on my face), then slammed nose-bridge-first into the sharp metal edge of a tether ball pole base. A fourth grade teacher who witnessed the entire event scrambledRead More

How I Improved My Skin & Keep My Hair Healthy

July 25, 2016 Skin, Tips / How-To, Videos

Living with combo-oily skin can get super annoying. Don’t forget the mild rosacea, incredible sensitivity, large pores, and acne-prone surface. :'( The only way I’ve been able to live with my many skin issues is by developing a routine that has basically saved me and made my skin more “normal”. The products I use today (mostly Laneige) are so gentle that I can get most of it in my eyes without it burning. To me, my most important features inRead More

The Best Beauty Looks for SS16 are in!

July 21, 2016 Beauty

2016 is the year of trying new things, and if this infographic is any indication, bold eyeshadow is friggin’ in, baby! I’m mostly excited to try the “indigenous” eyeshadow look a la Chanel, or the “bold lip” look. I just … y’know, gotta’ find a way to sneak past Tony without him thinking I look insane. Which he will. /Eyeroll emoji. Which 2016 Spring/Summer beauty trend are you going to try? Products Mentioned: Gym Skin: Sunday Riley Flora Hydroactive CellularRead More

Bright & Colorful Makeup for Glasses

July 14, 2016 Makeup & Hair, Videos

Thank you so much to JINS Eyewear for allowing me to pick up a pair of eyeglasses to compliment this video! My new clear frames literally go with any face beat, and I’m in love with them. In fact, Tony wants a pair just like mine (although he almost always copies me whenever I pick up new eyeglasses because he’s such a biiiterrrrr). If you want eyeglasses just like mine, you can pick them up on the JINS website for 10% off by clicking hereRead More

Lusting For YSL Handbags

July 6, 2016 Wishlist

I consider myself thriftier than most. More often than not, I’m trying to save money in the hopes that one day, I might live in my own enormous house with gorgeous furniture, beautiful throw pillows and sheepskin blankets on the couches, fresh flowers, and two walk-in closets. Two. Alas, by San Francisco standards, I am poor. Thus, I am forced to window shop on all of my favorite sites and only dream of things I want to buy rather thanRead More

My SF Makeup Show Pop-Up Wishlist

July 5, 2016 Events, Makeup & Hair

You guys. I need to go to The Makeup Show Pop-Up Shop in San Francisco on August 13 – 14 this year. Like, need to.

The tickets are only $44 USD for two full days of makeup shopping and learning heaven, and for that amount, youRead More

Karma Volleyball 2016

June 28, 2016 Travel, Videos

I am incredibly excited to debut traveling videos on my YouTube channel. I love creating beauty videos, but Tony and I get out a lot (who knows how he manages to get me out of my apartment, really — I’m such a homebody!), and it would be such a shame not to capture the fun we have around the world together. In this video, we take you to Karma Volleyball in South Shore Lake Tahoe. It’s a local and not-widely-publicized volleyball tournament whereRead More

Tarte Cosmetics Rainforest After Dark Palette Makeup Tutorial & Review

June 11, 2016 Makeup & Hair, Videos

This. Palette. Is. Amazing. It’s taking everything in me not to gravitate straight to this every time I apply my makeup now. The Tarte Cosmetics Rainforest After Dark Palette palette makes the rest of my makeup collection look like a waste of money. If you’re fair-skinned like me, head to your nearest Sephora or Ulta and buy this immediately. Products used to achieve this look: Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Marc Jacobs Covert Affairs ColorRead More

Sultry Cranberry Angel Makeup Tutorial

June 9, 2016 Makeup & Hair, Videos

You know your makeup is hot fire when you post selfies on Snapchat and everyone sends you private messages telling you they love it, Bae gets home and can’t stop telling you how pretty you look, and your Facebook followers blow up your comments. If you’re fair skinned and warm toned like me, warm cranberry/maroon/burgundy/wine-red colors do wonders for the golden hues hidden in your skintone and make you glow. On cool toned skin, cranberry shades might wash you out, but on golden babes,Read More
