My Black Friday/Cyber Monday Purchases

It feels like Christmas already with all of the packages I’m getting in the mail from shopping online! Here’s a quick rundown of what I got:

Nordstrom Black Friday/Cyber Monday Purchases (currently has 6% cash back on Ebates)

Halogen Ribbed Funnel Neck Sleeveless Shell

I had tried this top on a few weeks ago and I actually scanned the tag on my Nordstrom app and added it to my wish list so I could watch for it to go on sale (hot tip!) I thought this top was simple yet pretty sexy especially with some black skinny jeans and heels.

LA Guide – Hollywood

Recently I had my 5 year anniversary of moving to Hollywood so what better time to write up a guide or list of recommendations for anyone who wants to explore my neighborhood? Sorry for the lack of photos, most of these places are dark and sexy so even if I posted photos from there you wouldn’t be able to see anything!

Best Drugstore Foundations

I live for a drugstore makeup run. The drugstores in LA are sometimes twice as expensive so I usually like to get drugstore products either out in the boonies/suburbs when I’m on a trip, at Ulta when they’re BOGO, at a Harmons in a Bed, Bath, and Beyond, at Target, or online from Amazon or Target (I sound insane, but drugstore makeup is the awesome!). If you haven’t tried drugstore foundations in the past I urge you to give them a shot and you might be surprised just how nice they can be! Day to day I tend to rotate through this batch because I’m not trying to spend every last penny I have at Sephora and MAC. For reference I wear NC20 from MAC even though it’s a bit yellow on me. I have oily/combination skin and lots of pigmentation I like to cover. Here we go! Continue reading “Best Drugstore Foundations”

San Francisco

I went to San Francisco for a conference and a long weekend a few weeks ago and I forgot how much I love that city! The food, the shopping, the parks, the homes, the history, it’s amazing! I wanted to give you a run down of some of my recommendations.

General Tips

  • Always dress in layers. San Francisco is always colder than people think it will be.
  • It’s so humid say goodbye to having any good hair days here.
