AHHH I CANT POST THE VIDEO! but it is so ridiculously hilarious that i had to share it. totally made me want a frosty :)


so how has everyones weekend gone? i literally didnt sleep all night last night & i strangely feel really good. i went to the mall with my sister today and it was the last day of the Nordstroms half yearly sale for women & kids, but i walked out empty handed. *HIGH FIVE to me*

they had some nice stuff there, but the sales in Anchorage are nothing compared to the sale i normally see in Sacramento. ohhhh how i miss California :(. did anyone else have a chance to stop in to check out the sale? & if you did.. did you get anything GOOD? lol share stories with me, i want to live vicariously through your shopping!

when i was taking pictures last night for Sarahs contest, it totally sunk in that my skin has gone to shit. literally! i've always had issues with acne and my skin in general, but seriously im almost 21 and i have worse acne than when i was 16. its ridiculous, i need to slap myself. the weird thing is i take better care of my skin now that i ever did in high school. my life isnt stressful, so i know its not cause of that.. im just baffled. fuuuuccckkkk adult acne, im not some 13 year old going through puberty. i hate this

so as i was having lunch with my sister we brainstormed various ways to help save my skin. heres a list of things we came up with:
- cut back on soda. (this will help me skin & help save money!)
- drink MORE water
- cut back on makeup (this is going to be the hardest part)
- sleep earlier, try to get a full 6 or more hours a night
- get out into the sun more often
- eat less fatty foods (especially fast foods)

does anyone have any tips i can try to help save my skin? keep in mind that i will not be purchasing any new products, so things i can do for free would be better, but any product suggestions would be very appreciated.. i will add them to my wishlist and possibly purchase after my 2 month challenge.

im thinking im going to do a whole lifestyle change for a month to see if my skin would get better,, documenting my trial and errors.. i guess lol. and yes, this is what i am going to do with my entire summer. set myself on all kinds of challenges and beauty adventures. LOL!

soo help me out lovelies, what are your skincare secrets? what tips do you have to help me improve my skin? and... did ya have a good weekend?!

much love lovelies :)


this is my entry to Sarahs Disney Character contest. at first i wanted to do Mulan (cause im asian haha) , but wasnt sure what to do, and so i pulled out my 120 eyeshadow palette and thought Tinkerbell would be a better choice. but i SWEAR i will go Mulan one of these days! lol so heres my go at this...

this definitely isnt a recreation of Tinkerbell. I was inspired by her, not trying to be her, lol . if oooonly i had magical fairy dust or a magic wand to help me out :(

i took these pictures at night, the artificial light makes my skin look like shit & also cause im wearing my revlon color stay foundation instead of my Chanel. i love the revlon, but i actually have to put on concealer & i never do. i hate that extra step, i'll do a proper review of the revlon when th sun comes up a bit more...gooosshhh being lazy is sooo hard :( . so maybe i will try this look again during the day, if i dont get too lazy. im happy with the way my eyes came out though.. thats all that really mattered to me.

with flash:

without flash:
what i used:

Revlon Color Stay foundation in warm golden
Chanel Natural Finish Loose Powder in Naturel Translucent 1
Chanel Silky Bronzing Powder in 21 Toundra

Mac Paint Pot in Painterly
Lash Blast Mascara
Maybelline liquid liner in black
Almay pencil liner in black
yellow & green e/s from my 120 eyeshadow palette

Victoria Secrets Soothing Lip Balm (loooove this stuff)
NYC lipstick in petal

nail color is by OPI. cant remember the name, but its the pink color from their South Beach collection. i'll update when i get out of bed. sooo lazy right now. this look is definitely nothing i would wear day to day, but the longer i had it on the more i liked it (for everyday wear).

so tell me, how brave are you when it comes to wearing BOLD makeup out in publi? frankly, im quite scared, im a plain jane. lol.. ah i must find some balls

seriously though, i've been tryna upload my pictures for like 2 days & both my memory card and my laptop hate me, uhhhh i dont know how to reformat an F drive! lol gay, last night i about gave up and wasnt even going to post my entry to Rais contest, and this morning i woke up to see that she had extended the deadline to 7pm central time tonight, lucky me :) THANKS RAI!

soooo.. this is for Rai's contest. i've been looking everywhere online for a good photo to try and recreate & i decided to do to the lovely Mila Kunis. dude shes so F'en HOT. her role as Jackie on that 70s show really did her no justice, lol.

here are my inspiration photos:
heres my attempt at the look:

hahah dont laugh at me :(

what i used:

face: my routine as usual
Chanel Lift Lumiere in beige
Chanel Natural Finish Loose Powder in Naturel Translucent 1
Chanel Silky Bronzing Powder in 21 Toundra

Mac Paint Pot in Painterly
Lash Blast Mascara
Ulta eyeliner in brown
2 gold eyeshadows from my 28 neutral palette.
Maybellines Chai Latte quad

Soft Lips in vanilla
MAC lipstick in Blankety
MAC lipglass in Flourabundance

on another note, went out to celebrate our anniversary last night. 8 months and going strong, lol its a little high school-ish to celebrate monthly anniversaries, i know.. but we use it as an excuse every month to have a sexy date. lol although last night wasnt really a date, because my sister & little cousin wanted to tag along, haha we all had fun though. we had dinner at Orso. my favorite restuarant in Anchorage! beeeessstttt calamari EVER. i shouldve gotten some pictures of the food, but i was starving. haha i was quite the fatty last night i had a top sirloin and we got 2 desserts and they were DELICIOUS. the tiramisu & chocolate molten cake is amazing there.

jon & i didnt get any pictures together, but heres me, mysister & little cousin messing around while jon got the car.

me & my sisterme, my cousin & my sister

ohhhhh & we watched UP last night. seriously one of the cuuuuuuuutest movies i have ever seen. im already anticipating this coming out on DVD so i can buy it, and i nevvvvvver EVER buy DVDs, shows you how much i liked it. so if you havent seen it, go see it. i would pass on seeing it in 3D though. i seriously dont believe in paying that extra money, to wear those silly glasses to see a movie in 3D... i'd rather save that $3.25 surcharge fee.

this cartoon is PG13. it deals with a miscarriage and a death. i hate seeing movies that deal with miscarriages.. they seriously break my heart and bring back a lot of emotions and bad memories that im still trying to deal with. but there was a kid in the theatre who kept asking her mom, "mommy whats happening? what happened? why are they sad?" it was really cute.

i was reading Robyns blog today, if you havent seen her blog you definitely need to start following her! i looooove her blog & shes sooo sweet, and shes going on a 2 month shopping ban to save some money. & im totally going to join her. anyone else in?

i am by no means wealthy, but i do love the finer things in life. i work really hard to buy myself the things that i so materialistically love & this love of mine really consumes me and all of my money. lol. seeing how i have to start saving for my vacation anyways its all perfect timing. so from tomorrow forward i will not be buying any:

- cosmetics
- clothing
- accessories
- shoes
- handbags

if i dont need it, and its not a live or die situation i will not buy anything! i'll even cut back on eating out, try saving on gas, and pinching my pennies anyway i can. i should definitely be putting more money towards my bills and my savings than towards the bank accounts of my beloved department stores.

i think i should be ok, considering my massive shopping spree at BEBE & i just got my eyeshadow palettes and a new Chanel foundation.. i should be good for decades (or atleast until my vacation).

so from May 30th to July 30th i promise to not buy any of those items listed!! lets see how much money i can save and how hard this will be. hahaha i feel heavy withdrawl symptoms coming. i'll even document every penny spent and saved on my blog.

** i am not doing this to brag about money & materials, or how much or little i have of it. dont put judgement on me like that. i dont care that you know how much i save or spend, this is just informative for anyone who may find this helpful. if you dont like it, then you can get to steppin, cause i surely dont have any patience or tolerance for drama**

but i definitely feel that in tough economic times like these, whether you are feeling that pinch in your pocket or not, its definitely a good time to reevaluate your savings methods.. or lack of. even if you have billions in the bank, spending a little less and saving a little more wont hurt ya any. so who else is in? maybe 2 months is a little too long for some, but a week or 2, or even a few days, it will definitely make a great difference in your pocket book & for your own piece of mind.

so happy savings everyone, good luck on saving & pray you have will power! ;)

ohhhhh and lets start off everyones weekends with some cuteness. look at my babies, haha i know, i love to whore them out

i resisted nordstroms half yearly sale, but fell victim to the sale going on at BEBE yesterday. i went in, totally not intending on buying anything.. then i saw this gorgeous little black dress. so i tried it on, just to humor myself.. ugh im so stupid :(

of course, it fit perfectly & i loved it. so i had to buy it. luckily yesterday BEBE was having this outrageous sale. spend $300, get $100 off! i really didnt want to, but Jon insisted that i find $300 worth of stuff. gosh, im so spoiled! love you baby!

i thought about modeling all of the clothes i got, but i dont have a tripod & jons at work.. so it was really hard to take pictures of myself. hahhaha LAME! but i did get some good photos of the dress <3

what i got at BEBE yesterday:
- black tie dye racer back tank $39.00
- black cotton lace top $69.00
- black "Daliah" dress $159.00
- white grecian knot bubble hem top $49.00

Total: $316.00
Discount: -$100
Paid: $216.00

its all bad i know, but i really cant say no to a sale. i remember Jon & i watched "Confessions of a Shopaholic" and jon turns to me and was like.. omg this is your life story. haha it was really sad & nothing to laugh about, but so true :(

annnywhooooooo. heres my face of the day. a neutral smokey look. my Nikon sucks massive balls, so the pictures arent great.

Chanel Vita Lift Lumiere in Beige
Chanel Natural Finish Loose Powder in Naturel Translucent 1
Chanel Silky Bronzing Powder in 21 Toundra

have a great weekend bloggers!

so im at work, about to pull my hair out because we got our inventory shipment and as the new inventory manager i have to go through every box, every item and make sure they work. EXCITING! i know, please dont be jealous.

but as my day seemed to grow increasingly gayer.. jon sends me an email with this in it:

ALSO, go check out Edna's blog: . Shes super cute & is doing her first giveaway celebrating her 100+ subscribers! so subscribe, enter & good luck!

i have a strange obsession with this big headed cat, lol. i love hello kitty with a passion. i have necklaces, shirts, haha even a hello kitty electric toothbrush (2 actually). but i would have to say that my favorite hello kitty item has to be my hello kitty necklace from toys r us :)

i reeeeeeaaaaaaaaally wanted it, but decided not to buy it. i thought about it for like 2 weeks and finally caved into buying it, but then jon tells me he already ordered it for me :D !! it seriously was one of those things that really made me love him that much more. i mean i could love a guy who would buy me a million dollar necklace, but who cant love a guy who buys you a $12 necklace. haha i mean.. look at him, who couldnt love that dirty lil boy? hello kitty has been a strange puzzle piece in our relationship. i remember the first day we actually hung out he convinced me to buy a hello kitty sweater from Macys. lol i guess hello kitty was playing cupid that day :)

so if you love hello kitty definitely check out Simply Nee's blog for her Hello Kitty giveaway!

i have an obsession with foundation, everything that anyone loves i'll try.. but i always end up disappointed. for some odd reason nothing works for me. its either too greasy or doesnt provide enough coverage for my taste, and its never the right color, ever. i have such an issue with finding a good color match, its an outrage. even my beloved Chanel isnt a perfect color match for me. & im sure im not the only person who goes through this, i know far too many people who struggle to find the "perfect" foundation.

so is there a foundation out there that will be perfect for everyone?

according to Perricone MD there is. the NO FOUNDATION FOUNDATION claims to be the answer to us all. supposedly this foundation will work on anyone and any skin tone. im so curious! i read an arcticle on this foundation on New York Magazine and they did a trial with 10 different women and it seemed to work for everyone. i swear this is impossible! i need to get my hands on this and try it out... but i just dropped $65 on my new Chanel, so i'll wait till that runs out before i try this. but if anyone tries this before me, PLEASE write a review!

what the product claims:
Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation offers translucent coverage allowing the natural health and glow of skin to shine through while protecting the complexion against damaging UV rays. It works to correct skin undertones and offers all-day moisture, providing an even, dewy finish. A dose of specially treated pigments, blended with light diffusing mica, instantly soften the look of lines, wrinkles, and pores, creating a flawlessly radiant look.

Active ingredient:
-Alpha Lipoic Acid: Delivers powerful antiaging benefits and smoothes skin's surface.
-Vitamin C Ester: Corrects skin undertones and provides a natural, dewy finish.
-Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide: Protects skin with a nonchemical sunscreen and provides a range of optical diffusers that counteract red, yellow, and blue undertones.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens

What else you need to know:
This formula includes antiaging actives, DMAE and Alpha Lipoic Acid, which help to firm skin and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles over time.

suggested usage:
-Apply evenly all over the face using gentle, circular motions.
-Use on top of treatment(s) and/or moisturizer.
-Reapply if necessary.

where you can buy:
this foundation is available at Sephora for $50 for a 1 oz container (free shipping!)

& it does have SPF 30. i am so itching to buy! omg, the 1 review on is a good review.. so im gonna watch this over time and see how people like it. i wish i could get a sample of this, i hate not having a Sephora in Alaska. gay ;(

**warning: this is a very long post & a little picture heavy**

so lets start with some good news :) i found out last month that im getting promoted at work! i was super excited and i dont actually get promoted until May 22, but its definitely something to look forward to. best thing is i got a pay raise with my promotion and even though i havent taken over the inventory manager position yet, they've already started paying me at my higher hourly rate. HELL YES! i love my job

on to better things! here are my latest beauty huals. i know im not supposed to, but i gotta celebrate some how.

my 120 pro palette from ebay. it took 3 weeks to get here, but definitely worth the wait. i got it at a super great price ($19.99, free shipping) so how could i not buy it, right? and i know im a little late on this, cause everyone and their mom already has it. so im not going to do a review on it because everyone knows its a great palette. the shadows have such great pigment, but one of my black eyeshadows did come broken so i'll do a future post on how to fix that.

with flash
without flash .. lol can u see my toe?! haha thats so disgusting.

the next addition to my makeup arsinal is the 28 neutral palette. i loooove this palette. the colors are great and definitely useful for my work face everyday. i also used this palette for my sister & her friends prom looks. such a lovely palette. i got it on ebay for $20 with free shipping, took about 2 weeks to get to alaska.

without flash

Now onto reviews!

i have this outrageous love affair with Chanel. i've been using them since i was 16. i started with the DOUBLE PERFECTION COMPACT in medium beige and have been devoted to them for years. i was obsessed with their entire cosmetic line and never EVER used any other products. it was Chanel everything! but in the past year i ventured out and tried MAC, CLINIQUE, REVLON, SHISEIDO, SHU EUMURA and a handful of other products, and i still say nothing compares to my Chanel <3
my all time favorite is the MATTE LUMIERE in beige, i've been using it since i first tried in fall of 2006, but this new LIFT LUMIERE is definitely giving it some competition. but Nordstroms was out of Beige in the MATTE LUMIERE (as always. seriously anytime i go there.. in any nordstroms, theyre out of it!) but the MUA recommended i try the new LIFT LUMIERE foundation from Chanel. it has the same matte finish, but it also has lifting? idk.. i was just like.. WTF? ok lady whatever. lol now i've tried all of their liquid foundations. the PRO LUMIERE, MATTE LUMIERE, and the VITA LUMIERE SATIN. sooooo heres my review:

what the product claims:
More than a foundation, this unique formula is the consummate skin-caring makeup. Not only does it beautifully even out your skin tone as it helps deliver essential hydration, but firming polymers also provide skin with an impeccably smooth surface and the look and feel of an immediate 'lift.'

Price: $65 for 1 fluid oz.

what i loved:
- it has a matte finish
- the color is dead-on with my skin tone
- its medium to buildable coverage
- SPF 15!
- it works perfecting with my chanel loose powder

what i hate:
- the price! $65 is hard to swallow for a foundation especially for anyone on a budget
- the Chanel line doesnt offer a large selection of foundation shades

overall i would definitely buy this product again. it is more hydrating than the other foundations in its LUMIERE family and with my dry skin i need it, but at $65 (versus the $54 for the other lumiere foundations) i think its a bit over priced. while the new LIFT LUMIERE comes in a completely plastic container, rather than the typical glass and it does appear to be larger. they're all just 1 fluid ounces of beautiful foundation. and i dont know whats up with the whole "lifting" aspect of this foundation but i love it, but i definitely dont recommend anyone to splurge on it.

next review: the KISS TOENAILS

i bought this for my sister when i did her prom look, her left big toe nail is half broken (its too much to explain lol) but i couldnt just give her a pedicure so i got these and glued them on cause she was wearing open toed shoes. so i just filed, trimmed and painted these fake ones and glued them onto her natural toenails. they were wonderful!

what the product claims:

Kiss Nail Tips Are Natural Looking Durable and Easy to Remove. Used By Professionals Kiss Nail Tips Are The Number One Choice

price: $6.45 .. around there. they were cheap.

where to purchase:
wal-mart. walgreen.. etc

what i liked:
- you get 96 little nails in a variety of sizes
- its cheap
- super easy to use

what i didnt like:
- the toenail sizes are kinda large and long. so theres a bit of filing and cutting needed

overall i would definitely buy again.. if i ever needed to, but i highly doubt it. the nails are still on her toes now (an entrie week later) so they definitely are worth the money! i would definitely reccommend these.

loooooook jesssica alba has one in red, hoooowww cute.

i've never been good with parting with things that i love, especially not a handbag. haha, i may sound ridiculous but i do build a weird emotional/sentimental bond with my materialistic shit. i bought this bag a while ago, years to be exact, and i've never used it. EVER, it still has the tags and the dustbag... its beautiful. i just dont know why i have never used it.

i had a really bad Coach addiction for a while. i bought up everything they made: handbags, sneakers, heels, key chains, phone lanyards. you name it i have it. buuuut i have been very good and havent bought a handbag since last year in september! wooohooooo and cause Coaches or anything other designers new line up doesnt tickle my fancy.

its a limited edition Coach Python Small Pocket Satchel in lavender. it was released in 2005 and at the time retailed for $1,900 (fucking ridiculous for Coach.. i know) its definitely a collectors item, thats why im having trouble parting with it. its in mint condition (i've never used it), it has the tags (but not attached) and i have a matching patent leather lavender coin purse for it (new & tags attached, never used it either). it has python skin with leather trim, it has front and side kiss lock closure pockets, an outside zip pouch, gold hardware and imported silk lining. but it does show small signs of wear and tear: the purse is 4 years old and even though i've never used it, it is made out of python.. exotic skins wear over time no matter what precautions you take.(i'll post my pictures of it when i get home)

& now financially selling this bag could really help me. i have summer tuition due and it would be nice to have one less bill to worry about, but i would miss this bag. ( i sound stupid i know, dont judge! lol) i mean i dont NEED the money, cause i do work and make enough to cover bills. but it could go towards the 8 grand my boyfriend is dishing out for my engagement ring... so should i sell it?

i know some people arent down with fake nails, and for the longest time that was me. i think the first time i got fake nails... i was like 18. haha and ever since i've been hooked. i do occassionally get tired of them and let my natural nails take over, but i hate the chipping, breaking & tearing of natural nails. no matter what i do, theyre just not as durable as my gel nails.

i normally get my typical white french tips, then fell in love with black tips. i think i rocked black tips almost all year round in 2008... it was so cute! but this time around i decided to get something different, something a little brighter and bolder for spring. the initial color was a red-orange. i thought it was PERFECT for spring. a loud punch of color, well jon saw them and hated them. lol he said they were too bright, so i got some nice red polish and re-did my tips. heres the final product (as i promised in my previous post:

and like i said before, i love pedicures, but hate strangers touching my feet. haha im not even comfortable with my boyfriend touching my feet, i hate it when he looks at them! lol i dont have some nasty foot fungus or eagle talon toes or anything like that, i just dont like people to look or touch them.. is that weird? so i went home and gave myself a pedicure. didnt i do a good job?

sorry for the crappy quality pictures, i've been digicamera less & my sidekick doesnt take the best quality pictures. besides, i was at work and the natural sunlight in my office makes up for the poor camera quality. buuuuuuut heres some cuteness to start off your weekends. baby Leche is just passed out, hes forever sleeping just like his daddy.
