Updates, Weekend, Purchases

My mom, sister and I got a condo this week so we could have a fun little get away from our own house. It was nice staying somewhere different and the condo was amazeballs. We also had UFC fighter Stefan Struve staying at our house the whole week so we decided to leave. LOL. 

I got to hang out with my cute little cousin this weekend, he's so cute. I can't deal. 
We went shopping and I bought him this cute outfit and this angry birds watch he had to have.



And frozen yogurt of course! 

On Friday I went to my Uncles wedding rehearsal dinner at a restaruant here on Kauai called Roys. 
I wore a black lace romper from Macy's and black and white stripped shoes from Asos.


I wore Pandomonium Pink by OPI from the Hong Kong collection.





Saturday was the wedding! 
I wore a peach dress from F21, a yellow blazer by H&M, black Steve Madden wedges, MK gold watch, and a F21 studded clutch.




Sunday was a chill day! I just ran errands and went shopping with my sister.

 Pants, F21. Shoes, No name. Shirt, American Apparel. Watch, MK.




 Bought a new Silver MK watch.

Daycay

B and I flew to Oahu for the day yesterday to go shopping. Kauai has the worst shopping so we needed to get our dose of some good shopping, which we did. It was such a long day, we literally shopped for 6 hours straight. Then we had dinner at Bubba Gumps and flew home.



 Little photoshoot on the plane LOL. 


 NEW BAG! 

 At the airport on the way back. B made me wear her hat so I wouldnt get smashed in our bags so i'm looking pretty ridic but I had my coffee so I didn't care. 

 Got these sunnies for $10! 
From ALDO. 

Chillen in the dressing room while B tried on dresses.

Hair Extensions!

The best part about getting my hair extensions was the cute little personalized note they wrote for me! I ordered the 22" Chestnut brown extensions from Bellamihair.com. I was guessing when I ordered the color because I had absolutely no clue what color would match my ombre. So I ordered the chestnut brown and they match PERFECTLY, which i'm so happy about. I love them so much already and i've only had them for 2 days. I've never had any sort of hair extensions before so this is fun for me. 
They were $175 and it comes with 10 pieces! I dont even use all of the hair. It's such a good deal. 


This is my natural hair. Sorry for the fugly no makeup picture! Only one of me recent with my hair down. 


 And this is the extensions. I LOVE how long they are. Abnormally long.


 
 I'm wearing: Pants, Jbrand. Bag, Rebecca Minkoff.(sending it tomorrow. SAD!) Shirt, Zara. Watch, MK.


Me and B at dinner tonight!

Horrible Bag Purchase

As you all know I bought a Rebecca Minkoff bag recently. I wanted it mostly to take on my Vegas trip but thought it would be a good buy cause I dont really have any small good quality bags. I got it about two weeks ago and have only worn it about 4 times. The leather is super soft and I thought it would be good quality since I spent almost $400 on it. I thought wrong! Its already turning brown and the suede on the straps is totally ripping. So, this was a very bad purchase. And I won't be buying another Rebecca Minkoff bag which sucks because it's adorable and i love all of her stuff.

Here's the bag when I first got it. 

I'm wearing Steve Madden shoes, Top Shop Shirt, MK watch, F21 shorts, Rebecca Minkoff bag.

Here's what it looks like now.
It looks 10 times worse in person! So not happy.
 

Anyways i'm returning it! 


I picked up a few beauty products today.
 Something Sweet, High Hopes, and Treasure Chest. 

 I'm wearing High Hopes by China Glaze. My mom is wearing her polish by Zoya called Erika. We have loads of Erika polishes at my house but when my mom saw them at the store today she had to buy another! Zoya named this polish after her a few years back in their Beauty Blogger collection.

 Thought I would try this hair mask by Moroccan Oil. I've been really good about not putting any heat on my hair this whole summer. I've only flat ironed and curled my hair about 3 times in 4 months, which i'm VERY proud of. I didn't really mind because its so much easier to get ready and I love the messy natural look.

 And I thought i'd pick up the biggest Moroccan Oil I could find. IN LOVE w this product. 

I also picked up a top coat and a base coat but that's nothing interesting. 

Roasted marshmallows in my kitchen tonight. I like mine burnt.

Day Time Glam Makeup Tutorial!

I love the "no makeup" look in the summer time, but I love it more when it's more glam. I've been wearing this recently and thought I'd show you guys what I do. Perfect for day shopping or lunch, and even a night out.

First start by applying your favorite moisterizer. Mine is Peter Thomas Roth. 

Next, I applied a primer. I used MAC's Prep and Prime, the Skin enhancer one. 
I've been loving this for summer time.


Then, I applied MAC's Paint Pot in Soft Ochre.
Mines old and getting dry, but I still love it. 

After, take a flat shader brush and apply a shimmery cream color.
I really couldn't get this out to see what color it was. 

After, I applied Bamboo my MAC in my crease.
With a 217 brush. 
 


Then I applied Era by MAC with a 224 blending brush!














Foundation! I used my Studio Fix Fluid. 
With my Stippling brush.

I set it with my Mineralized Skin Finish Natural. 


Contoured with the same but one shade darker!
This is the best to contour with because it's matte. I used a MAC 116.



BEST blush in the world. Its so pretty! 
I then applied this with a Tarte brush.


I used Soft and Gentle highlighter with a new clean MAC 116. 
Don't skip this step!


After, I did my brows with Anastasia Brow Powder is Ash Brown. 

On my lips, I started with Creme d' Nude by MAC. 

On top of Creme d' Nude I added Cusp of Dawn. 

I always do my mascara last because I like it to be really black. 

aaaaaand waaaalaa! 
an easy day time glam face.
