LAS VEGAS VLOG!

I know I know, this video and post is long past due. I had so much trouble trying to edit and save this video before I left to Los Angeles, but iMovie kept shutting down on me. I finally was able to save, and upload the video, and I'm so thankful that even though it took over 200 minutes, it finally is up and live.
Once we arrived in Los Angeles, Steve wanted to upgrade
our rental car to a Dodge Challenger, so this is what we
drove around for 3 days! Sweet ride, huh?


Our very first win on our very first machine! I'm sure you can already
guess why we started off with this machine! 



So cool! We found a chair that had my last name when
we were at the Fashion Show Mall!


My birthday dinner attire!

We had dinner at Sushi Samba and these were our rolls. 
They tasted absolutely amazing, especially the one on the bottom.
However it was $19 for 3 pieces! Our whole dinner was around $200,
and we weren't even full!

Our waitress brought me out a Happy Birthday dessert which was
so sweet of her. She even put some gold flakes on it for us!
Day 2 we decided to spend the majority of the afternoon at the spa
& getting massages! We even wore our spa attire to lunch!
It felt a little odd, but we were too hungry to change! lol




Steve & Leon Spinks chatting


Meeting Leon Spinks was probably one of the highlights of the trip 
for Steve. I, on the other hand, didn't know who this was, but 
after hearing a bit about him, I thought it was amazing that we got to meet
a World Champion that defeated Muhammad Ali



Day 3 we spent mainly at the Forum Shops in Caesar's Palace.
Here is a photo of me and my "yard" drink that I got.

How I curl my Hair!


Yayyy! I've been having numerous requests to do a hair curling tutorial, or if I have one every time my hair was curly in videos. This video is special to me because my very first video I uploaded on my channel a video explaining how I curl my hair. However I have since deleted it because it's such an embarrassing video. lol So I hope you enjoy this video, and if it does, please like this video to show your support!

Conair Infiniti Nano Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron (you can buy it here, it's on sale!)

Knackered Nail Polish

Here's a Nail of the Day post! Currently I am wearing Knackered Nail Lacquer by Butter London. It's such a gorgeous and unique shade & I absolutely love it. However it's not opaque in 2, or 3 coats and that really sucks. This color is meant to be worn over another shade. I love that in different lighting this color from a purple, gray, green color.. If you get a chance to visit Ulta, go check out this shade because it's so different. These photos I posted do not do the color justice because in person, it is much more complex then what you see. In the photos as well, you can see that 3 coats is not enough.

Sexy Divide Nail Polish


Essie Sexy Divide Nail Lacquer

I just want to say that I absolutely want to love this nail polish. I love the color, but this particular nail polish is not opaque in 2 coats. Here I had to apply 3 coats so that my nails are not visible. This color applies streaky and the wear is not long at all! I painted my nails yesterday morning, so it has been over 24 hours that I've had this color on my nails, and look how it looks! Ignore the big streak on my middle finger, that was my fault for getting it caught. However if you look closely at my pinky and ring finger you can already see minor chipping. It may be the nail polish or the top coat I used (I used Hardwear Topcaot by Butter London), either way I do not recommend this color to anyone. Even though the color is gorgeous (a deep dark purple with hints of shimmer) it is streaky and is not opaque in 2 coats.

Shop & Drop Tutorial

This by far was my favorite quad! I absolutely love purples on myself and they look great on every eye color! I know that pinks are hard and intimidating to wear, so a great alternative to that is wearing purples! It's also great that this quad has both a pink and a few purples.

January Favorites 2012

Here are my January favorites! Better late than never, right? (: I am extremely sorry that I haven't made a video in over a week. If you follow me on Twitter then you know why. I have been sick with the cold for a week now and my son is sick as well so it's been difficult to film. I was going to film a tutorial yesterday but I ran out of time, so I decided I'll just film a favorites video even though I sound so gross.. I'm also sorry that the lighting is horrible and that my camera is crooked. ):
I can't believe January is over and that we're already more than a week into February! It's my birthday month & I'll be 21 on the 22nd!!!



Products shown & mentioned in video with links on where to buy:
Maybelline 24 hr Color Tattoo in Too Cool
MAC Blush in Subtle Breeze (limited edition)
MAC 211 Brush

Restores Dazzle! Cremeblend Blush



This is Restores Dazzle! Cremeblend Blush from the MAC SHOP MAC, COOK MAC (isn't that such an odd and awkward name for a collection?). When I went to my MAC event, I only had the Florida Cremeblend Blush in mind, but when I swatched this particular one, I knew I had to get both. However, when I sat down to film my haul video, my Florida blush was not there! I'm upset that I didn't get it, but good thing the collection isn't available yet, so it won't be sold out yet!
This particular cremeblend blush is so pigmented and glides on so well. It may be a good or bad thing, because if you don't use a light hand, or a stippling blush, you will have extremely dark cheeks. I love this color and it's a great Winter  color as well as a Spring blush. Please keep in mind that my photo and swatch here are a bit darker than in person!
