Weekend Snaps

Bon weekend! We’re currently experiencing the infamous June Gloom here in Southern California, so I’ve been pretty lazy. Nonetheless, I still live for random weekend adventures (I mean, who doesn’t):


[Sampled the chardonnay at Léal Vineyards.]


[Found the prettiest blush pink dress for a wedding – the brand is Romeo + Juliet Couture and it was a total score.]


[Spotted the coolest painting in a Nordstrom dressing room, of all places.]

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, folks. x

New In – Skinfood Tea Tree Fresh Cleansing Foam

Okay, that’s the longest product name ever. But this cleansing wash is really good. I originally looked for it at Ulta, where it’s currently sold out. And it’s been out of stock for a while now. That should clue you in on how popular this item is (so it must work wonders, right?). Anyway, since I couldn’t find it at Ulta, I went straight to Skinfood – where they had plenty in stock!

Pokémon x Tony Moly

My friends recently got back from Japan and graciously gifted me with a bunch of goodies (I’ll share more of what I got later)! I’m talking snacks and sweets galore, plus some unique beauty items. What I’m most excited to try though are these fun sheet masks:


Cute, right? They’re from Tony Moly, which is a Korean brand, but this collaboration (read all about it here and here) isn’t offered in the States. So you could do some digging on Amazon if you don’t have friends traveling to Asia anytime soon (thanks, guys)!

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.]



[Little couch potato]


[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
