My Best Friends Wedding

This blog is very special to me. My best friend in the whole entire universe, finally tied the knot! I don't have many close friends, so you can imagine the joy that this day brought to me. Tammy, the girl who I have told all of my secrets to, had braces with, got into innocent trouble with, popped pimples on our faces together and all these years, have still laughed at the same silly things. This woman has become a wife and a damn good wife. I commend her for that and am so proud of the woman that she has become. To be able to know a girl in her prime teen years all the way on to her adult years is indescribable.  

Although I am "supposed" to a "beauty guru", this post will surpass any post about hair, make up or whatever new product out on the counter. Life isn't about the destination, it's about the journey to get to the destination. And this, this was the best day of her life and I was there to witness it.

Below are some pictures from the special day. The day before her beautiful wedding in Laguna Beach, she had a gathering at her house for some appetizers and cocktails. A private dinner with just family to set the most intimate energy..

This is what I got from Tammy. A huge basket full of goodies! And here is for the beauty lovers, A CLARSONIC!!  I love it! Best freaking tool ever! The week before I arrived to Cali, Tammy text me asking me how I washed my face at night. Last thing I thought was that she was actually out getting me one! 

Experiencing such an intense moment in 2 peoples life really opened my eyes. I hope that you have gotten to go thru this in your life and/or have been able to marry that special someone for you. Either way, it is to be the best day of that persons life, no doubt, this was the best day of hers. I love you Tammy. Our friendship will tower over any other relationship that I have with anyone else. Forever Friends.

My favorite fall lipstick

Of course fall is here and we go thru that phase of losing that sun kissed skin and warm weather. i personally despise the cold but look forward to wearing those dark lipsticks! Although I wear dark lipsticks in the summer as well, the new autum season is the perfect excuse to look for more! 

Below are some pics of me wearing my favorite lipstick! it's called Rebel. Made by Mac Cosmetics of course!

The above picture of me is with my new remote! Finally. I can start and stop video and be able to take still shots of my make up now! LOL Hope you could share the fun with me!

Make up from the video! (hot rollers)

So here is a couple stills from the Hot roller video I recently posted! A lot of you asked for a tutorial, which will come soon I'm sure, but for now, here is a little run down!

So here is the make up look in motion. A very simple look using purples and a good pair of lashes!



To get this look, I used:
Velour lashes in "TdotOhh"
Mac eyeliner in "Engraved"
MSB in "Bare Coral"
Bh Cosmetics Smoky eye palette (purple eyeshadow)

Big hair don't care!

I have been doing my hair like this for years and I swear that I have done this video a couple times.. 
But whats a couple more times!? LOL I always get requests on how i do my hair and this is the same response!! So if you havent seen it yet, here you go!


Ive grown up.

I just went back into my videos.. I watching this whole video.. My first disclaimer video. I was 25.
If you are just recently subscribed, you will see a major difference as in how i am so careless. BUT I am the same attitude and have the same outlook on life. Please watch..

After i watched this, i almost cried. When i made this video, I was in a very rough spot in my life. I was living with my mom but still the happiest girl in the world. I had nothing but my kids and my make up. Art was an outlet that i had to get me motivated. The creativity that came out of me inspires me now. I look back and can just see how I have developed into a woman. I am proud of myself. I really am. And watching this video even made me laugh. The way I can ramble on and not care what everyone thought. I just wanted to take everyone on a ride.. I love till this day, to make things fun and laugh at everything. Im bubbly, i like to share that. My sarcasm is always at its best and that will never change.

Again, thank you for joining me on the journey we call life.
