His and Her Gift ideas from Karmaloop

This year Karmaloop has put together Holiday Gift Guide for men and women. They've got the cutest accessories, shoes, and clothes, and the hottest gear for men. I picked out a few items that would work great as gifts to loved ones, and an entire outfit for Benji. To make things fun, Benji did an open box review on the items I picked out for him. He had no idea what I picked, so this is basically what Christmas looks like :)

Bad Girls Club's Lea inspired makeup

Oxygen's Bad Girls Club is my favorite reality show! Its filled with so much drama, basically a train wreck you can't look away! Lea takes the crown for being the "Baddest" girl in the house. She doesn't let anyone get in her way, and is always looking for trouble. The show wouldn't be the same without her. I'm looking forward to the second part of the reunion which airs tomorrow on Oxygen :)

Here is a video screen shot I found of Lea

Date Night! Winery & Harry Potter

I love date nights, it keeps our relationship fun and fresh :D Tonight's date night Benji found an awesome deal from travelzoo to a local Winery called Covington Cellars. It was a package for 2, only $40 which normally cost $100! What a steal! Our experience was great. The Covington Cellars team were so sweet. We really felt welcomed. We hit up Harry Potter afterward at a nearby theater. What a perfect date night!

This machine processes the grapes

The barrels smell sweet :)

This machine bottled the wine

We learned a lot about the process of wine making

During the tour of the winery, we were able to sample 
wines in the making

The wine were paired with tasting plates. YUMM!!!

Heres a photo of Morgan describing each wine.

My pick, the Rose

Lola found her new BFF. Waiting for Benji to throw the ball!

Waiting in line built up an appetite. Sushi from a nearby restaurant:)

Is this making you hungry? 
Cause Is making me!

Eyes Lips Face Stocking Stuffers

I don't know what it is, but I'm totally in the E.L.F phase! I just purchased some e.l.f. online twice this past month. Then I saw these gift sets at Target. I couldn't pass up a great deal, and I wanted to share it with all of you! I bought the 32 eyeshadow palette for $5, the three nail polish set for $3, and a liquid eyeliner for $1. Here are my thoughts. 

 pretty good selection of colors. Neutrals, smokey, and brights.

 Some colors came out sheer, while others were highly pigmented

Here are a few swatches. I used urban decay primer potion as a base
This is the $3 nail polish set. I could care less for the first two. The polish doesn't go on as glittery and shiny as it looks. However, the red nail polish in "cranberry" has just the right finish and a slight glimmer.

 Here is a quick look I put together using the palette. Watch the video below for the tutorial. 

For the rest of the face I used MAC blush in "breath of plum", Wet n Wild lipstick in "912C" and Bobbi Brown lip tint in "bare shimmer"

E.L.F. Open Box Review

I stumbled across the eyes lips face website the other day and was thrilled to see their 50% off all eye products promotion! I ordered seven products: an eyeshadow palette, brow tamer, brow pencil/highlighter, Pen liner, brow duo, eyeshadow primer, and cream liner.

The eyeshadow palette was on sale for $2.50. The Pen liner was on sale for .50 cents. The rest of the products were on sale for $1.50. There were a few products I could do without, but a few great finds I found for extremely great prices :)

Check out my review below.

John & Mell's Wedding

(photo credit Door 51 photography)

A few weeks ago Benji and I flew down to San Jose for my cousin John and Mellanie's wedding. The wedding and reception was beautiful and memorable! I supplied makeup for the bride, bridesmaids, and mother of the groom. Here are some photos from the wedding. It was definitely an easy job considering all the women are so beautiful! Big thanks to my cousin Ate Jas and Door 51 photography for letting me use some of their images!
