Where the hell have I been.. and a HAUL! yes!

Well, It's been over a year since I've blogged. My apologies. But I promise I've been rejuvenated, and I actually have A LOT of ideas for this blog. =) So, hopefully you guys have a lot to look forward to.

I'm going to be starting school in January, so I'm going to try and crank out as many blogs as I can before then. With that being said..

I'm not the most fashionable, but I've been trying to up my game (Thanks to Jessica). Lately, I've been following a lot of fashion blogs (esp. on my tumblr) and I've been really into vintage, over-sized ugly sweaters and what-not, so I'm determined to work them into my wardrobe. I actually got Jessica to come consignment shopping with me (it wasn't hard, esp. since she loves to shop..)

We went to two stores, Painted Bird (1360 Valencia St, SF) and Buffalo Exchange (1210 Valencia St, SF) for some vintage goodness.

Off the bat, I already knew we were going stumble upon some good finds, because 1. we got prime-time parking and 2. We didn't have to pay for a meter. YESSSSS.

Anyway, the first stop was at Painted Bird. Jessica has been telling me about this place for months, and I'm glad we stopped in. They're a little pricier than Buffalo Exchange or Crossroads, but the quality of clothes are much better. Jessica said it best; "They're like the boutique of the consignment shops".. mainly because they're more particular about the items they want to sell. I ended up leaving with 3 items. A old man sweater, a leopard vest, and a bracelet (not pictured).

"Old Man Sweater"

Leopard Vest

I tied to get a good picture of the bracelet, but since the lighting was bad, and the flash made the bracelet disappear, I couldn't post a pic.. but I'll let Jess tell you the funny story about them. =)

After Painted Bird, we walked about a block and a half to buffalo exchange (I know, how convenient). It was a bit over whelming for me in there. It was a lot more crowded than Painted Bird, and I also had Jasmine, who was getting cranky since she didn't really go down for a nap before hand.. so I only got 2 things there as well.. I got an H&M cardi, which I didn't really like, but since it was Half off, I just bought it. (LOL), and I got a new pair of black booties (let me just let this be known, after this pair, I WILL NOT buy another pair of black heels.. unless they are EXTREMELY cheap.. hahahaha)

H&M Cardi
Orig price: $13
Sale price: $6.50

I didn't really like the sholders, but whatever.. LOL

New pair of booties (forgot the brand, too lazy to get them to look)

It's 2:25am, I have a photoshoot at 10am.. goodnight!

D.I.Y. Jewelry Rack!

Here's a cheap alternative to having your jewelry on a stand that gets cluttered or is too short for your necklaces. It's a wall rack and all together it cost me under $10!

You will need:
  • wire net (used for hanging kitchen utensils) ($1.50)
  • hooks for wire net ($1.50 for a set of 8)
  • basket for wire net ($1.50) (optional)
  • push pins ($2)
Basically you just snap the hooks on the wire net any way you want. I added a basket for things I don't want to hang like my HelloDrama stuff and a few bracelets that didn't fit on the hooks. Use the push pins to hang it up on the wall and voila! Instant (and cheap) wall rack!

I got all the supplies from a place called Daiso, it's like a huge japanese super store. Anyway, try it out and I hope you like it. If you have any questions about the jewelry feel free to ask.

let's put you on nail game!!

Hope everyones week is going great. I know mine is awesome.. just finished out my semester!! SUMMER FREAKIN' VACATION I'M HERE!! Plus, Cj just started a new job so she's super busy. Anyway, now that finals are done I finally had time to take my ass to the spa to get a mani/pedi.

L'Esprit - American Apparel

I went with a pastel purple/cobalt-ish color. I ordered hella nail polishes and some other stuff from the american apparel f&f sale. Cremes and pastels are hot right now and american apparel's nail polish line is pretty much only cremes and pastels. This is the first time I've tried it so I can't say how long wearing it is but so far so good. I love this color.. reminds me of melted ube ice cream. All my filipinos, tell 'em about ube ice cream!

Another good pastel color I've tried is..

Milf - Illamasqua

I love this Illamasqua polish! It's so long wearing and goes on so smooth like butttttaaaaah!! I got it because it reminded me of like matcha green tea or something. Try it and let me know what you think!!

A couple weeks ago my girl Connie and I went into the local variety store. I needed some emergency fishnet stockings for Vegas and the variety store is definitely the place to go to for cheap socks and hair ties and stuff like that. I haven't been to the variety store since I moved out of my parents home.. but now I'll go all the time. Here's why..


Obviously we went crazy. They sure didn't have all this the last time I was there. There was like every single NYX product you can think of and it was way cheaper than what you'd find it for at ULTA. They even had a nice section of LASHESSSSSS and NAIL POLISH!!! Check out my haul!

All this for under $20!! That's like 7 pairs of red cherry lashes, a pair of leg avenue fishnets, and a green NYX concealer for my kit.

The Red Cherry lashes were under $2 each, the leg avenue leggings that I JUST saw for $20 on Haight st were also under $2, and the NYX concealer was like $3. Makeup junkies of SF, do yourself a favor and check out the Variety Store on Clement!

David LaChapelle Shoot

As you may or may not know, I started school at the Academy of Art in SF for photography. This week I had a shooting assignment to emulate one of my favorite master photographers, I chose David LaChapelle. CJ agreed to be my model AND by my MUA. Here's a few of the shots I got, hope you enjoy!!

This is based off his portrait of Lil Kim. You can view it here.

This was the one my peers liked the best. It's based off his portrait of Uma Thurman. You can view the original here.

This was probably me and CJ's favorite. This was personally my favorite shot out of all of them, I preferred the darkness of it though I turned in a different image with more background. It's based off his "Declare Yourself" series. You can view the original of Christina Aguilera here.

Maybe if you're lucky CJ will do a post on how she did the makeup. MAYBEEEE!!

'til next time sweethearts, have a good rest of the week!

I've got another product review for everyone! I'm sure you guys have read/watched a few reivews on Mario Badescu products. Here's another incase you haven't seen enough.

DRYING LOTION is perfect for those with moderate acne, or just those people with practically GODLY skin and only a few pesky zits every now and then. You don't shake it. Use a qtip to pick up the pink sediment at the bottom and apply it to your little problem. Obviously you would do this before you go to sleep unless you think pink dots are sexy. Let it dry overnight. When you wake up in the morning, as I have found, your pimple is either dried up or significantly reduced.

ALOE MOISTURIZER W/ SPF 15 I suppose this was ment for people who spent way too much time in the sun and ended up with painful sunburn. This has become my HG WINTER FACE MOISTURIZER! I have never experienced such dry freakin' skin ever in my life! This winter has been a bitch on my skin! Typically I have combo/oily skin.. lately that has not been the case. A little goes a long way with this baby, less than a pea size amount is more than enough for my face and neck. It absorbs slow which keeps my skin from completely drying out. Has a nice smell and gives my face a soft feel. LOOOOOVE THIS STUFF.. but I can only use this during the winter when the weather is cold otherwise its too moisturizing.

ALL IN ALL.. I would def buy these products again and recommend them to people with similar skin problems to mine. Check them out and let us know what you think!

Hope everyone's Thanksgiving was great, be safe shopping this weekend!
