Hihihihi!! I’m alive & seeing that I am no longer a resident of Claremont, here are five random things that’ll happen to you when you leave! (1) NO MORE EARLY MORNING TRAIN NOISES You ain’t gotta listen to that GOD DAMN train blasting its horn at 7am no more! This is especially for my Pomona folks (sorry y’all poor south campus dwellers. I’m looking directly at you Wig and Lyon. Your time will soon come to migrate up to north campus, but rest assured, you will still…

Little White Dress

Everyone knows the famous LBD (little black dress), but little attention has been paid to her cousin, the LWD (little white dress). I especially like this white dress because it is light, airy, and has these lovely tassels attached to the bottom hem. What’s a white dress without a light-wash denim jacket to go along with it? Add a pop of colorful jewelry to the outfit And a pair of comfy brown sandals Don’t forget a pair of ultra cool round sunnies! M Photos by marcuspolkphoto…

Tarte Tarteist Blush Palette Review

When I spy with my little eye an online sale… I wait with patience for my package to come in the mail! Tarte was having a 20% off their entire website and so when I saw this blush palette, I had to try it out. The colors of the blush are very pigmented when I swatched it on my hand, but unfortunately this pigmentation did not transfer well on my cheeks. I had to pack on each blush in order for it to show up properly…

Cruising In Ensenada, Mexico

The final destination of our cruise was Ensenada, Mexico, and according to everyone we asked there, they all recommended we try the fish tacos. $1 tacos and $2 mango coladas? Yes please. Next, we had wine tasting of five different wines that were made in a winery that’s owned by a woman. Don’t worry, the prices are in pesos! What’s a wine tasting without some banana-flavored olive oil and bread? Tuna fish farms on the Pacific Ocean Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico The plates of the cars…

Oily Skin Holy Grail: Kiko Mat Base Primer Review

When it comes to wearing makeup and having oily skin, it can be quite challenging to come to terms with what your skin needs and what your heart wants it to be. And thus the lord sent down help in the form of a mattifying primer. The Kiko Mat Base Primer is the perfect solution to oily skin because it can be used as a primer by itself without applying any makeup after. It can also be used as a mattifying face primer for oil skin, and…

L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation Review

One of my absolute favorite drugstore foundations is this L’Oreal Infallible pro-matte foundation. I’ve tried my fair share of drugstore foundations and this product is truly a force to reckon with. My one and only gripe with the foundation is its limited shade range. The foundation claims to be pro-matte and it does exactly that. It goes on smooth and stays completely matte for a couple of hours. After about 5-6 hours, a little oil starts peaking through, but it is nothing compared to other…

Step Into Summer With A Wide Angle: Palazzo Pants

As the cool air slowly becomes warmer, palazzo pants are a great way to transition from spring into summer. The fabric is lightweight and airy for the summer, but the length protects from any remnants of chilly spring air. Since the palazzo pants are quite loose and long, it’s important to pair them with a fitted top. This top is perfect because it has a high neck and it’s in a neutral gray color. If you’re on the shorter side of the spectrum like me, you’ll either…
