February Ipsy glam bag

My February Ipsy bag came in a few days ago!
I have to say, I wasn't very impressed this month. I feel like I used more of the samples from last month. This month, it came with a mascara, gel liner, face primer, lash cards, and little eye shadow samples. The bag is a shiny black bag, it's cute but looks a little cheap... I preferred last month's bag!
So the face primer is from Pixi... I don't know how much I'll use it as I'm not really big on the foundation/face primers. I prefer to not have my pores clogged with makeup unless I go to an event or clubbing. So maybe I'll use it once. It didn't seem to blend really well, I kept blending it in and it seemed to just rub away. I guess I'll really see how it is when I'm doing my make up.
The Mica gel eyeliner looks really good, I hadn't had a chance to open it yet, but it seems to be very black. I am currently using a regular liquid liner from Maybelline called stiletto, maybe when that is finished I will try this gel liner! I've never heard of the brand but I have been into using new brands -- I have an eye shadow primer from Nyx -- seems to work pretty good!
The eye shadow sample is from Coastal Scents; the colors look nice, I received "candlelight," "gunmetal," "incognito," and "ashen." Very romantic shades for a nice smokey eye look.
The mascara, I'm not sure if I will actually use it. I will do a comparison soon. I currently use DiorShow Blackout mascara that I am IN LOVE with... (see pics below). It just separates my eyelashes and curls them... all while making them stand out! Love it! And for 25 bucks at Sephora, how can you compete?!
I tried to use the Lash Cards last night as I was getting ready to go out in Hollywood....It was a little hard to use. I mean, it's not complicated to do but I couldn't coordinate myself to apply mascara and have the lash card on my eyelid. It's a great concept, and I want to try using it again. I always have a problem with clumping of my eyelashes and getting my mascara on my shadow after I have already applied it... So this is a great solution! Great idea!

February 2013 Ipsy Glam bag contents

Pixi Flawless and Poreleess Face primer

My eyes before placing mascara -- Left and using Lash Card on right--they give 2 different size curves based on the size of your eye!

Finished eye makeup! Primed my lids with Nyx eye shadow primer, and applied Maybelline eye shadow in Sunlit bronze, and then blended with Sephora bright blue eye shadow. Used Maybelline black eye liquid liner on top, Covergirl black pencil eye liner for water line, and DiorShow Blackout Mascara. 

Finished look!

I wore my MotelRocks blue and black lace dress with these heel-less wedges from Charlotte Russe! I loved my outfit! Headed out to the Colony club in Hollywood for my birthday with the Bruin Party Network! Shout out! it was such a great time, we took a party bus, skipped the line and walked right into the club where there was a table + free drinks! and then ride back at the end of the night! Can't wish for a better deal!
I had such a great time last night for my birthday, I've been itching to go clubbing!

Anyway, that's all for now. I'm sad its Sunday night already, back to work tomorrow. :(
But good thing about this week--my Birthday is on Wednesday! :) :)

Goodnight! xoxo A

February styles!

Aloha readers!
I went to Forever 21 today in Santa Monica and I bought a few goodies. Firstly, I bought this neon yellow work out shirt that I thought was really cute. I'm so into the bright workout gear, I need to invest in more brightly colored things for working out! Second, I bought this cheetah print top with mesh sleeves -- I thought it was really cute! And lastly I also bought this lacey crotchet top! I'm going to wear it underneath some brightly colored tank tops I received from Abercrombie! Super cute!

I also cut my hair :X I woke up yesterday morning wanting to cut my super long hair... I called a salon down the street from my place and she took me without an appointment...I wanted to clean up my hair and get rid of the damage -- I had a lot of damage with the ombre highlights -- and she did just that, put in a lot of layers, and now my hair seems so short! The length in the back is longer, but with all the shorter layers it looks a lot shorter. It looks good, I like it, but it is taking some getting used to. I hope I can learn to style it really well so it looks super cute!


I am also waiting for my Ipsy Glam bag to come in the post... hopefully it comes soon! I can't wait to try and review the products!

For the spring I am loving this nautical blue color! I saw a lot of clothes in this color at Forever 21! This image is from new styles at! Wish I could update my wardrobe with these beauties!

What is your favorite new style/color for the spring?

xoxo A

PS. My birthday is in 10 days! YAY! stay tuned for my bday outfit! and some professional pics coming up in the next post! :D

A little preview...

So today I ventured to downtown LA to meet up with a photographer for head shots! It was crazy because the Grammys happened to be the same time at the Staples Center, and the studio was right across from there! It was so cool! So many limos, and people looking all important... haha
I was super excited to take pictures but overwhelmed at the same time! I'm no model! I have no idea how to work the camera! Here's a little preview of a very non-professional pic I took of myself with my iphone while I waited in between looks! haha!
The next two pictures are of the beautiful sunset in Santa Monica tonight! It was amazing! I really need to invest in a nicer camera, to really capture the beauty. May I add there are no filters on these pics! :)
Anyway, more about this when I get my pictures soon! :)
xoxo Andrea

New goodies

Happy February everyone!
I have been meaning to post sooner but got really busy with work!
I received some goodies in the post recently, that I had ordered from So excited! I bought this crocheted white scarf, which is really pretty! I love it!
And the second item I received were these awesome heel-less heels!!! They look so cool! I tried them on and they are surprisingly easy to walk in, for looking like there is nothing to support you! They are a cheaper version of Jeffrey Campbell's Nightwalk shoes. Granted they probably aren't of the same quality, but maybe when I save up one day I can buy the legit J. Campbell ones!
I can't wait to wear these out! I have the perfect outfit idea too, and it involves my motelrocks blue/black lace dress!!
Speaking of MotelRocks, there is a sale going on, and you can get an extra 10% off sale items by entering the code VIPSALE10 at checkout. But remember, you can also get 20% off regular priced items (and maybe sale items? I would try it at checkout anyway just for kicks) using my exclusive code for you, ANDREAH227!! head over and check out their new spring/summer 13 collection! Can't wait to buy some new things to add to my collection!!
