So when most of us hear or think of Earthquakes, we automatically think of hiding under a doorframe or better yet stay outside of any tall buildings. As a first for me, living in San Diego, the earthquake I experienced today was probably the worst I would ever want to feel.

Normally, I would panic and overreact, but it was different because it was Easter and I spent the day with my Family. With my grandma's 80th birthday coming up, we all gathered at her house and without my grandma knowing, we were all outside (aunts and uncles included.. dogs too!) recording a birthday greeting for her when the 6.9 magnitude quake hit! It wasn't what you would expect, maybe because we were outside. But I thought my bigger cousin in the SUV we were next to was rocking it which is why we felt it but we all paused and looked at eachother and just asked "is there an earthquake happening?" And of course.. there was. I saw my cousins in front of me swaying like we were on the ocean. First instinct was to check facebook updates and people from LA even felt it!

To be honest, I thought it was a trip, I felt more sea-sick if anything just because the cars in the front and the ground itself was just rocking back and forth. It was kind of cool, but yet so much was going on through my mind like if anything were to happen at my house with my dogs there, if my bf is alright, if their family is alright, if my grandma is alright! I was just hoping no one got hurt. Luckily, everyone was safe and my grandma was just chillin as if nothing happened! Haha.

But I'm sure it would've been a different experience if I were indoors or something because I went to work later and everyone was telling me how terrified they were. Just goes to show you that this shit happens, especially when you least expect it! I mean come on, it's Easter. It's a good day and that's all that mattered until the earthquake hit.

Sadly as the Earthquake traveled it's way to Mexi-Cali it's magnitude heightened to a 7.2 and by the end of the day 2 people died and hundreds were injured due to this natural disaster. It's insane how all this happened in just less than a minute!

Lovin my life right now!

I feel incredibly blessed to have the people I love around me and to know that in a month, my grandma will by 80 years old! And, on top of that all, school is going well AND these amazing opportunities have come up for me to do makeup and actually be looked as a freelance MUA.

I am so excited :) I can't wait!

Torn between two loves

So the Hellz collection just dropped and will be hitting retailers soon and I CANNOT F*KING wait!

BUT! The MAC Give Me Liberty of London collection releases this Thursday. I know I want tons of shit from MAC, and at the same time I have to save money for my Hellz addiction!

I know in the end, I'll end up splurging in one aside from the other, but right now it has me twisted because I REALLY want to see both collections in person and see what I love and lust.

Knowing me, I'll be lusting over everything! The Hellz Spring 10 campaign has got me drooling all over the place, and the MAC collection has me hypnotized.

Cannot decide! :(


The unboxing of my karmaloop package! Can you guess what it is!?

Now I bet you know ;) Yeah FINALLY received the package after preordering these babies in December! BUT WHAT, they're not in the box!?

Daaaaamn straight, b'coz the second I opened that box I took em and put these babies on my feet where they belong! LOL yeah lame I know, but my boyfriend came up with the idea :P

:) SO excited I got these shoes finally, and I'm extremely excited for the next Hellz collab about to drop soon...

you all know... the VANS x HELLZ collab!

As for know I'll be lusting over these bad boys until then

Ashley Sade *inspired* Nails

If you don't know already, Ashley Sade is on TOP of her nail game and I admire her work as seen through her blog posts and her portfolio. I swear, she has so much patience because she does all of this herself and the detail work is on point!I'm usually a one color all over the nails typa girl when I'm lazy, or a french tip, but I never get creative enough to come up with my own designs because I think what I come up with turns out ugly. While looking through some of her work, I saw one that would be simple enough for me to do. A cheetah print! Or what she posted as "hoodfab cheetah" with the rhinestone looking things and whatnot. I thought they were gorgeous and it only took my an hour and half to do because I kept messing up :P

So here is her creation:&here's mine:Of course it's not as good as hers, but I definitely tried my best! I used different colors: gold and red and rhinestone things on every other finger while I just coated the rest with glitter because I got lazy haha!Excuse thy white-ness, my flash doesn't seem to pick up my color? Heh.

Thank you Ashley for (1) giving me an inspiration to do my nails and (2) for your amazing nail artwork I also gained inspiration from! I really do wish I could get my nails done by her one day! Hopefully soon (watch out Bay Area I'm comin for ya) because that would be awesome rockin some ASade nails nawmsayin!?


Valentine's Day

is only a month away! &I'm extremely excited because this year my boyfriend and I are going with my cousin and her boyfriend to Sammy's Woodfire Pizza, and Chocolat after for dessert. Nothing to fancy schmancy because we're saving that for our 3 years (!) on the 27th :) Yay!

So speaking of the occasion, Valentine's Day we always make our gifts to each other and try to get creative... our first valentine's he made a card and attatched it to chocolates and a balloon. It doesn't sound like much, but when he does make something by himself for me it means a lot. Then our second he made a pillow(lol you can kinda see it in the picture)! Haha so adorable and thoughtful... so we'll see how this year plays out. I've mostly just made treats and books of somesort for such an occasion. So this year I feel like getting REALLY creative!

I went to Target yesterday and in the $1 section, they had a shit ton of valentine's scrapbooking stuff, stickers, candies, toys, and I nearly went insane! I love scrapbooking stuff, even though I really have no use for it so I was glad I got these packets of papers for only a dollar! I've spent less than $10 on all the things I've got &sprout ideas from. So from all the inspiration, I'm sure I'll think of something.I'm thinking the mini scrapbook I can use for sure and just have fun with it and go crazy with pictures and hearts and shit! Haha then the mailbox decorate and use it for another occasion. Hmm because I have no clue if I should save the mailbox for a different occasion, his birthday or our anni? Because I wanted to put his actual present in there (if it fits) haha.

Any thoughts/ideas of what I can do?


Panera Bread

is yummy!

I can't believe I haven't been there since so many have popped up in San Diego recently. There's 3 that I know of and I went to the one closest to my work with a friend of mine earlier today. I got the Salmon Club Croissant which from the menu is "Chilled salmon filet, Applewood-smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato and our zesty tomato aioli served on a freshly baked croissant" but without the tomatoes because I've never been a fan of the slimy texture. And it also came with a bag of chips! Overall, I enjoyed the experience... the food was delicious, the environment was very welcoming and the food was great for the price (esp. since I took my friend out and ended up paying) and I would definitely go again to try out more of the menu... I really want to try their soups in the bread bowl and salads because they sound just delectable!

I feel bad though, because since it was so quiet and everyone was just enjoying their meal, my friend and I were probably the loudest people and got the employees looking at us every couple of minutes because what we were talking about. HAH.

I also got a dessert to go which is the Macadamia Nut Blondie... the name sounded to good to resist because I'm such a sucker for anything with Macadamia! Haha.

Also, they had fresh pastries and bread for sale... like an actual loaf you can purchase and cut yourself! I thought that was so old fashioned and reminded me of those movies during the 20s (or Idk what decade) when they'd pop loaves of bread in the oven and serve it straight to the dinner table. YUM!

It's funny, because I usually have one favorite item from a restaurant I ALWAYS have to get, but from this place it seems like I'll like a lot of things which I like because I enjoy variety in my life ;) With that, I am extremely excited to go back and try more food and maybe their smoothies because they sound delish too! (PS. Why are drinks always more expensive than the damn meal!?)

If you've been to Panera before, what have you tried or wish to try? And what did you like or didn't like? I'd like to know your eperiences too :)


MAC is attacking my bank account!

With their amazing collections coming out, I'm most excited for the Spring Forecast and the Give Me Liberty of London Collections.

Here are just a few pictures from Temptalia of the Give Me Liberty of London Collection!

I'm definitely a sucker for packaging, and I think this packaging is super cute! It looks kind of kiddy, but I like it. The little bird and the flowers. Even the product names itself are amazing. I've already created a wishlist, which I should start saving up for...
