Outfit of The Day: Visiting Pearl Harbor!
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


Aloha! Today’s outfit of the day will be sharing with you all what I’m rocking while I visit the Pearl Harbor Memorial today. I am very sad to say that in the year I lived in Hawaii I NEVER got to visit the memorial!! So it means a lot to be here again and do all of the things I really didn’t get to do back then. I’m so excited and I plan on taking a lot of photos and just being at peace there today.

I hardly am able to find rompers that don’t look stupid on petite girls so I was really excited to share this one with you guys. It’s from Forever 21. The sandals and the flower in my hair I bought at the Aloha Stadium swap meet lol I haven’t owned a pair of sandals in YEARS!

As beautiful as Hawaii is and as much I am enjoying my retreat I must admit I am so ready to go back home lol I came here to relax and I’ve been doing JUST that. I think some R&R is needed every so often. Luckily I will able to take a Space A flight here and I still have friends that live on the island who were kind enough to host me while here. Thank God!!! I can’t wait to show you guys some of the vlogs and share more of what I’ve been up to on the island!

 

Aloha <3

Excited to be spending the weekend in San Diego! But this is the calm before the storm. Going to be training with my Camp Pendleton Unit all weekend so I came out here to relax a bit beforehand. Today I’m having brunch in Coronado with a girlfriend of mine from basic combat training. SO excited to see her! There’s no bond or friendship like that of your military battle buddies <3

Ombre for the Day
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


It’s hard as hell to blog about the upcoming fall fashion trends when the weather in LA is THIS freaking amazing. Really? Feel my struggle please! It’s September and only getting hotter here. But I swore up and down to people, yall ain’t hearing me, September is one of the hottest months of the year. It generally is hotter than August, why didn’t anyone believe me when I told them that? I warned yall!

Anywho, my girl Marcilargo of La Bella Couture sent me this ombre dress to feature for the blog, it’s one of my favorites I’ve received from her boutique to date. The color combination is sick, and obviously I’m a fan of ombre so I instantly fell in love!

Now of course I’ve got to run my mouth just for a little bit more! I am so excited and proud to say that I graduate from school this Friday! 10 months of hard work,  dedication and being broke have finally paid off! LOL For those that don’t know, I am in school for cosmetology at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in California. The state of California requires 1600 hours of education in order for you to become a licensed hairdresser. Aside from the fact that I missed the first two weeks of the program while in Kuwait, various sick/work days and time taken off after my BFF passed away I will still be in school until October. But one more month in school will fly by quicker than I know it.

So anywho, instead of a traditional cap and gown ceremony, the graduating class is to put on a fashion show. I can’t quite say what our theme is YET. But let’s just say it’s a topic that’s near and dear to me :) I have been busy like a mad woman lately trying to prepare for  the show. We are responsible for scouting our own models, doing their cut and hair color on our own. Makeup, props, seating, wardrobe, photography, music, and all the other things that go into a fashion show are expected to be provided on our own. All of this while trying to get a head start on studying for the state board exam. People TRULY underestimate just how much work goes into cosmetology. Which is why there are so many discredited artists to date. So much chemistry, PSYCHOLOGY, tricholgy, study of diseases and bacteria, etc. etc. I am not only doing this for myself, but I’m doing this for everyone who said it wasn’t practical, for everyone who said this wasn’t a “real career”, for everyone who doubted me, to disprove stereotypes of what a hairdresser/makeup artist is. Not saying I have a billion things to prove, but for other young women and men who are pursuing this too and are feeling pressure to quit, DON’T! If it’s your passion no matter what anyone says go for it. Don’t think, just DO. Everything will fall into place. I wish I could explain to you how true this is.

 

I really love talking about life on my blog as oppose to YouTube. YouTube is fun, but I do feel my more serious readers come to my blog. It’s a blessing being able to share my accomplishments, troubles, sometimes fears and heartaches for you guys. I am so happy I’ve finally made it and can’t wait to be able to dedicate more of my time here to my blog. Best of luck to those of you who are starting school this fall, I hope you enjoyed reading :)

Love and blessings xo

Ombre; and Spring Days that Feel Like Summer…
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


I’ll never get over ombre, ever. So don’t try to make me!

 

Many of you know how huge of a fan I am of color, often times that transcends into my wardrobe.

Really I am not a huge fan of accessories, I let the attention shine on the beautiful colors of this dress and paired it with a nude handbag (not shown) as well as pearl studs.

As for the makeup statement pieces like these are best paired with subtle, clean makeup. Perhaps even a pop of bold lipcolor/blush and lashes. THIS LOOK RIGHT HERE is a sneak peak at a tutorial that comes at very high demand. So stay tuned :D

 

Toodles! <3
