I had the awesome opportunity to work with Popsugar and Rimmel London to create a rockin’ look for this fall season. I love taking affordable quality products and vamping them up to show off all of my features. I took inspiration from a photo of Selena Gomez (whom I adore), and put my own spin to it. If I had to pick only 2 products that really tied up the entire look, I would encourage you all to try the ‘Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner‘ in Black and the ‘Rimmel Scanaleyes Rockin Curves Mascara‘ in Black.

So the lover and I spent the other weekend in Downtown LA. One of my favorite things to do is explore cities around me because I love seeing the different cultures and lifestyles people live. Downtown LA isn’t too far from me, so walking around and enjoying a sunny day is like going on a mini vacation for me haha! The lover snapped these pics of me (he kept mentioning we looked like tourists), so here ya go! Let me know what a perfect weekend looks like to you!
So a few weeks ago I took a stroll in Downtown Brea, but I didn’t get around to posting these pictures (partially because i’m too critical on myself and partially because I completely forgot about them). Speaking of being too hard on myself, I think I’m going to make that one of my new year’s resolution…I’m going to stop being so critical of myself. It’s actually really funny because the videos I post that I really do not like (either because I don’t like the way I look or just don’t like something in general) are the videos that everyone seems to love. It always turns out that way!! So from now on, I shall post everything I film/photograph and I will not be so critical about everything! Voila, problem solved! And that concludes this random/pointless post. Hasta luego!
So for those of you who don’t already know, I do live in Southern Ca (born and raised). So this is a typical day/outfit for a cold winter day…mind you I was freezing in this. I had to go Christmas shopping since I hadn’t bought ANYTHING, and of course I got my lovely/amazing boyfriend to accompany me (i apologize if i get annoying about that boy, i can’t help that he’s sooo amazing lol). My favorite place to shop is South Coast Plaza, not because it has some of the priciest stores ever, but mostly because it’s a one stop shop! They have a big Forever 21, 2 big H&M’s (one is across the bridge at Crystal Court), Steve Madden, Zara, Teavana, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, and yeah..you get the point. Anyway, before we headed in to the madness (it’s always super crowded around the holidays), we stopped across the street at a little ‘Euro Caffe’ where I had a vanilla latte and tuna sandwich. That pretty much sums up my Christmas shopping day where I ended up getting only like 2 things! Well, here’s to another weekend of shopping!! 😉
So I spent most of my Sunday at Fashion Island in Newport Beach. I love the outdoors-iness and the fact that everyone has their dogs [dressed up]. I did a little bit of shopping, but mostly just enjoyed the holiday atmosphere with my honey. Here are the pictures my amazing boyfriend snapped for me:
So I decided to make this absolutely deliciously amazing pumpkin spice white hot chocolate yesterday. There were a handful of ingredients (spices), but it was ridiculously easy and fast! I seriously suggest you try this out and share it with your friends because it’s too good not to share!
I added Cookie Butter to the rim of the cup because I freaken love that stuff!
4 cups whole milk 10 ounces white chocolate, chopped 4 teaspoons cocoa powder 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup pure pumpkin puree 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon cardamom Dash of allspice Dash of ground ginger
Start by pouring 2 cups of milk, the 10 ounces of white chocolate and cocoa powder into a pot. Bring it over medium heat and mix it so that the white chocolate melts and everything blends in smoothly. In a separate bowl, mix the pumpkin puree, vanilla, and all the spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, allspice, ginger). Bring that mixture over to the mix you have over the fire and pour everything in. Mix again and pour in the remainder 2 cups of milk until you get the desired consistency (I prefer all 2 cups or more so it’s not too rich).
Wahla!!!! It’s all done! Super quick and easy..and the absolute perfect holiday drink.
Hey guys! So I’ve been pretty MIA for a while, partially because I unintentionally tend to forget my blog but mostly because my (old) computer was ridiculously slow! Well that’s all a thing of the past now ha…my boyfriend bought me a brand spanking new macbook so I figured I would share what i’m currently obsessing over…
My macbook, Ikea’s cute (and affordable) mugs, flowers (from my man), and my concho hat.
See, I wasn’t kidding when I said my concho hat! And of course one of my absolute Starbucks fave: Pumpkin Chai Latte (2 pumps of Chai, 1 pump Pumpkin)
