New In – Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

YEARS ago (I won’t date myself by telling you exactly how many years), way back in high school, I made one of my first “adult” beauty purchases: a Shu Uemura eyelash curler. It was a wise investment; I still have it to this day.

Well, a couple weeks ago, my friends surprised me with a brand spanking new eyelash curler! I can’t quite seem to part with my old (and slightly beat-up) curler, but I am excited to break in this new one.




Look how shiny it is. I should’ve taken a side-by-side picture with my old one for comparison!


You can get the eyelash curler here.

Weekend Snaps

Woohoo, I’m SO glad it’s the weekend. I spent last weekend at Disneyland (more on that later), so this entire week has just felt like catch-up. Anyway, here are a few snapshots from around here!

[Lunch from Honey’s Kettle Fried Chicken in Culver City. The chicken was okay, but those biscuits were to die for.]

[I bought this Burt’s Bees Flavor Crystals Lip Balm from Ulta recently. It doesn’t moisturize very well…but at least it smells good?]



OMG it’s almost May. How is it May already, guys?? Enjoy the rest of your weekend. x

New In – Milani Liquid Eyeliner

I was at Harmon Face Values recently, and decided to use my 20% off coupon on some much needed eyeliner. You know those Bed Bath & Beyond coupons? Yea, you can use them at Harmon Face Values too (they are part of the same brand family)!


I decided to try out this liner from Milani (Eye Tech Extreme Liquid Eyeliner). I dig it so far. And it’s a total bargain at under $10.


I also appreciate that little grippy handle – so ergonomic!



I love me a good liquid liner. Some others I’ve tried: one // two
