All About Z-Palettes, Depotting & How to Get Shadows to Stick!

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another post!  I think this one will be super helpful for those of you who struggle with de-potting eyeshadows (aka taking eyeshadow from a pot and putting it into a palette) and getting them to stick to various types of palettes.  This technique helped me immensely.

Costco Kirkland Holiday Brushes Review

Hi Bellas,

Just $29.99 for the entire set!  Great value.  You can find these if they're still available at Costco stores.  I had no idea that these brushes were from Anisa, the same company that products A-Design brushes.  Now I can see the similarities, and that's a good thing!

Come with me to get a Blow Out! dryBar Atlanta Review

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another hair post!  I'm on a roll for 2012!  For New Years, I wanted to get a blow out and I knew just where to go.  A few weeks before that I had purchased a groupon for the Atlanta location of drybar - a hair salon specializing in blow outs!  This was a brand new location.  I had heard of this chain before and was so excited that Atlanta was finally going to get its share of awesome blow outs.

Big, Curly Glamourous Hair Tutorial

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another tutorial and this time it's for hair!  I don't do too many of these because I don't feel like i'm an expert on hair by any means, but if I can do it, you can too!  I love using hot curlers because you just put them in, and by the time you're done with your makeup, you take out the curlers and you're good to go!

Philippines and Hong Kong Haul

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another video.  This one is kind of fun and different.  A few months ago my parents made a trip to the Philippines and Hong Kong and brought me back some goodies - everything from shoes, to makeup to food.  If you're from these areas you may relate, lol.  Either way, it's a fun way to show you some of my cultural favs!

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another tutorial!  This comes by request and it's an Old School Ren Ren look using bright colors and glitter!  I meant to upload it in time for New Years but wasn't able to get it up in time.  Still it's great for anytime of year.  If you love bright eye looks, this one's for you!
