Look At Me Now.

I've had the original, Chris Brown featuring Busta Rhymes & Lil Wayne, on replay for many weeks now. I found this cover through KDWB's blog. I love it. That chic is boss. I will be replaying this for weeks to come as well. Just thought I'd share these addicting tunes.

BOGO, FTW.

I went to Ulta after work and met up with my friend, Mai Bao. We did a little browsing and picked up a few things. Here are the items I purchased today. There were a few BOGO's so I grabbed what I liked and got a pretty good deal.


I have had this bag since last year. I am not a huge fan of make-up boxes for storage. I think they are a bit flimsy and a little harder to carry around. Maybe someday I will give-in. As of now, I have a nice cosmetic bag to store my beauty products. I've purchased a few in the past. They have progressively become larger throughout the years. Instead of tossing all my products into the bag I have now, I used the smaller ones to create "dividers".

-- I like to have my brushes out when doing my make-up so I place it loosely on-top. The other cosmetics are easier to dig around for.

Spring Temptations -Epic.

A late post on my Saturday April 9th night; I attended the Spring Temptations event at Epic Nightclub. The special guests were YouTube's; J-Reyez, Timothy DeLaGhetto/Traphik, Smokes, Erika David, Mr.83, The Infamous, and Lil Crazed. I am familiar with four of the seven guests. I saw them perform but was able to meet and take a photo with TimothyDeLaGhetto. He was the main person I wanted to meet for the night. Score.

Secret Garden - Fashion Show.

Saturday April 16th, my friend Mai Bao and I attended the Secret Garden fashion show held by Secrets Fashion Agency. Some of the designs were really interesting. The bathroom was also really nice. We spent some time in there taking photos. Lol. The downfall of the night was, I didn't bring my DSLR because I assumed we were not allowed to. The last fashion show, in which I did not attend, I heard they were only allowed to bring compact cameras. - I'm bummed I didn't get to capture a few of my favorite pieces. We tried taking a few shots with Mai Bao's compact camera without the flash, but they came out blurry and the exposure was slow due to the low lighting. Oh well, here are a few photos of us from the event.

Weekend purchases.

I did major damage to my bank account over the weekend. Ate sushi pretty much the whole weekend and did a little shopping.


- I finally bought a new pair of classic black & white Chuck Taylors. Comfortable and good for everyday wear. I own a few pairs. You can't have too many.
- Alongside the chucks, I bought Sneaker Balls. Just in case I need to get rid of BO in my sneakers/shoes.
- I stopped by Ulta and picked up NYX jumbo pencil in "Milk", LASplash multi-use glitter in "Enlightened", and LASplash proof sealer.
- A cute headband from H&M.
- Another trip to Ulta for Katy Perry's "Shatter" nail polish in black and NYX Matte palette in "One Night in Morocco". NYX products were 40% off over the weekend.
- Lastly, I stopped by Charming Charlies for a much needed clutch.

Baby shower update.

This past Saturday; April 9th, was my friend's baby shower. The diaper cake I made was finally brought to her. The food was delicious and the day was filled with fun games and neat prizes.

The adorable cake she ordered from a local bakery shop. It was yummy!

Peeking through the clouds.

I stalked the sky and clouds today. I hoped it wouldn't be too cloudy so maybe I could capture a great sunset. I lost some hope after seeing a bulk of dark thick clouds. I went to the hotspot anyway and glad I did! Here is the sunset of tonight.

Delicious rainbow.

Today was dedicated to being in the kitchen. I woke up and cooked for most of the day. I made delicious buffalo wings and baked rainbow cupcakes! The colors turned out perfect. They were delicious. Yummay.



* Unrelated note:
I finally went out to get Lady Gaga's Viva La Glam 2. I like it a lot more than my other few nude lipsticks. It does not give me an extra pale-washed-out-face.

CustomHandMake.

The Fujifilm Instax Mini 25 camera case I ordered came in today! It is so nice. I love it. I ordered it from customhandmake.blogspot.com. I asked for it to be slightly larger so I can fit an extra pack of film with it, but I am able to fit two. She did a wonderful job. She personally designs other custom hand made things as well. Check out her blog if you get a chance.
