I’ve been looking hard for a good teeth whitening pen for a while! One that fits in a purse because I travel a lot and if it’s a huge whitening kit with trays I always forget about it! :) I found the cutest size one with the best results! It’s called HELLO SMILE!

Benefit Cosmetics Event – Roller Lash

benefit event arika

Makeup events are always fun, especially Benefit Cosmetics events! They always have the cutest decor, such cute packaging, and also the best candy, refreshments! This time, however, since I am on this crazy crunch diet I did not eat any of their delicious snacks! I think I had two fries and one yogurt covered pretzel! Even though I had a little bit, it was nice to have some sweets/junk food.

Brown Lipstick was so in during the years 2000 – 2004. I remember trying to wear brown lipstick and wearing Cover Girl eyebrow pencil as my lipliner and sometimes wearing a frosty lipstick from Bath and Body Works! Thought iwas cute then, but OMG it looked crazy! Here’s a throwback photo of me trying to rock that brown eyeliner as a lipliner and frosty lipstick which I would NEVER wear now!

Blow Dry Bars – Experience

blow dryIf you are a glam girl like me, you probably have stepped into a blow dry bar before. Blow dry bars are quick salons where you go in, get your hair washed, blow-dried and styled. No cutting is involved and most blow dry bars don’t do cut/color. The one that I usually go to and I am in LOVE with this blow dry bar is BLOWN on Canon. I have a girl named Jackie who does my hair and she is my go-to favorite blow dry hair stylist. I have gone to her probably like 20 times and I am in LOVE with the way she styles my hair!

IMATS Weekend 2015


IMATS weekend was everything! Every January, IMATS (International Makeup Artist Trade Show) is held in Los Angeles, usually at the Pasadena Convention Center. There they have tons of beauty companies that showcase their products, but it is also a huge meet-up of a bunch of YouTube, and now instagram beauty gurus and makeup fanatics! I try to make it all the time, and since last year I went on a Saturday, this year I decided to go again on a Saturday, I think that is the best day to go!
