Hey ya’ll! Hope everyone had a great weekend. It’s been quite warm in the Bay Area; in the upper 90’s and I decided to stay indoors most of my weekend. Going outside to get food wasn’t on my list either. I love cooking and all, but I’m not one of those people who can’t make a meal in 1 hour. If I make something, it has to be a full blown dish with proper presentation and the whole nine yards. So, whenever I decide to cook, I make sure to take out 2-3 hours. It would be wonderful to have that kind of time more often but with my busy schedule, I end up ordering out mostly. Recently I tried Freshly, and it is the easiest service for anyone who doesn’t have time to cook and is racking up on Door Dash bills, like me. = / I have tried other meal services where they send you groceries and you get to cook the meal yourself, but I wasn’t a fan of the overall taste. The best part, each meal is about 500 calories or less. If you’d like to try 6 meals, use the code nocook639 to get $20 off!
I took a few days off from any work and I still feel like I don’t need to be doing any work. But those who know me best know that I’m addicted to working! I had to plan my sister’s bridal shower this weekend and execute the event on Sunday. It was slightly stressful because I always want everything to be perfect, but it turned out to be amazing! I will be sharing some photos on my Instagram soon. Speaking of Instagram, I also wanted to update you guys on my recent posts. This first photo I posted on Valentine’s Day. My cousin took this photo of my significant other and I while we were walking to Disneyland!
Red lips look absolutely stunning if paired with the correct eye makeup. During the Holidays, red lips always make me think of Christmas and if you’re not into the dramatic eye makeup looks that are on Instagram, a red lip is the way to go! Here I created a red lip makeup look that’s quite easy!
Is it just me or are Halloween makeup looks the new costume? If you haven’t seen them, you must! Some of these creative looks are incredible. To be honest, I much rather prefer getting creative with my makeup then spending $100+ on a costume that probably won’t be popular the next year.
My past bridal client—turned blogger friend—and I teamed up to recreate her bridal makeup look. Sunia from PerfectPopSF made an absolutely stunning bride for her big day. She wore a traditional rustic colored outfit from Pakistan and adorned herself with unique jewelry pieces. For the actual wedding, I did airbrush make up since Sunia wanted a natural finish but in the tutorial I used regular MAC foundation. I did a classic smokey eye that complimented the outfit fantastically. Check out the tutorial and let me know what you guys think!
