NIP & FAB – glycolic fix serum

IMG_1370.JPG

The truth is, I normally don’t waste money on skin products because I have experienced such bad luck with them. However, when I saw Kylie Jenner posted a picture of a Nip and Fab product then ran across it at Ulta, I couldn’t resist. This particular product focuses on getting rid of fine lines and large pores. I suffer from expression marks just across my forehead and terrible genetics when it comes to the pores on my nose. With that being said, I have tried a variety of products to eliminate these issue ranging from $10 to $90, yet they have all failed. In just a few uses, I noticed very visible results especially when it comes to the pores. The product claims to cure all these flaws within two weeks so I will be sure to update you all when that point comes! So far, the few days I have used the serum have proven it to be a miracle! More pictures with after results will be coming soon.

Fig & Olive| West Hollywood

So I’ve wanted to go to Fig & Olive for some time now and finally I did! I went for an early lunch on a weekend. I must say the ambience was so cozy yet chic. There was lots of natural lighting and natural greenery accents throughout the restaurant. There is conveniently valet at the door which is always a plus in WeHo. But lets talk about the food…

So we started off with blood orange mimosas which were pretty impeccable. Can you really go wrong with a mimosa though?

Our waitress brought us out the complimentary bread and olive oils from Italy and Spain. The bread was very light and airy with lots of flavor when dipped into the oils. Overall, a very nice start to the meal.

Then we got the crostini appetizer, which was absolutely delicious. We got the following three:
•Prosciutto, Ricotta, Fig, Olive, Walnut
•Manchego, Fig, Marcona Almond
•Mushroom, Artichoke, Scallion, Parmesan

All were tasty but the prosciutto with ricotta was easily my favorite!

I also got the fig & olive salad. I’ll admit it was just a simple salad that lacked dressing but was nonetheless okay. Next time I will definitely try something other than a salad and indulge in their infamous apple tart.

So would I recommend it? Ofcourse! Fig and Olive is definitely worth a try.

A girl should be two things…both classy & fabulous

IMG_0534.JPG

An handbag worth investing in? Chanel! The signature quilted leather Chanel handbag accented with the gold chain, it’s everything! Every girl dreams of a Chanel handbag with that trademark logo. This bag is the perfect size for going out at night but really can be worn at any time or any day. I’m a huge fan of this style and honestly, it is the perfect accessory to glamorize any look! If you’re looking to buy a handbag, Chanel is always a timeless and chic choice. Afterall, when it comes to Chanel, is there really anyone who wouldn’t kill for one of these purses?

P.S. Can anyone recommend a good quality leather conditioner? I need to preserve that signature Chanel shine!

New York!

Okay, so maybe I wasn’t actually in NY but this holographic crop top is just so fab!

I’m still all about representing the city I’d die for, LA. But, when it comes to holographic prints,  I just can’t resist! I couldn’t help but customize my look by making the oversized tee into a crop top. I also bought these Topshop boyfriend jeans sans massive rips so I went to business with my scissors to show some more skin!

I see you Malibu

image

I recently spent the day in Malibu and I’ve been dying to go to Cafe Habana. I am so happy I did because their corn was literally delicious! This picture does the yummy little appetizer no justice. Roasted to perfection, smothered in queso fresco and finished with a bit of heat, this was to die for. The tacos were tasty too, but definitely start off with the corn when you go!

image

The views in Malibu are one of a kind and always so dreamy. Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled because you never know who you might spot in Malibu. Spotted: Kim K at Nobu.

My Fave Sparkling Drinks

I’m a sucker for sparkling water so naturally,  I’m dying to share some of my favorite sparkling drink recipes with you! 

image

Rosemary Infused Strawberry
This is one of the most refreshing drinks, perfect for summer! Smash up some strawberries and mix the juice with sparkling water. Add fresh rosemary sprigs in for a fun twist. The earlier in advance you add your rosemary in, the more flavor infused your drink will be.

image

Perrier
One of my favorite sparkling waters is Perrier. I consider myself a water connoisseur and I have found this to be the best sparkling out there! I mean I’d prefer a nice glass of water over a mixed drink any day (stay tuned for my water tasting adventures). My friends and family all call me crazy when it comes to my water preferences. I admit I am a bit extreme. Anyways, Perrier lemon adds more dimension to these fun recipes so it’s a must try!

image

Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade
Gotta love a sparkling lemonade! I love mixing Simply Lemonade or Hubert’s Lemonade with Perrier Lemon and fresh strawberry juice. Garnish with mint and fresh berry pieces for the perfect refreshment.

Whether it’s as simple as mixing sparkling water with cranberry juice or fresh squeezed OJ, or trying out one of these more intricate recipes, sparkling water is the best way to spritz up your summer!

Hello Bay Area

I recently went vintage shopping at some of my favorite shops in Downtown San Jose. Black & Brown is a must if you are in the area!

image

I’m obsessed with my Jeffrey Campbell  heeled sandals. JC always has my heart! My floral high-low top is from Wasteland  Haight Ashbury and my high waisted denim shorts are vintage Levi. I’ll be sure to post an up close shot of my vintage Versace bag soon!

image

Philz Coffee is one of Downtown SJ’s most popular coffee shops! Each cup is individually brewed and customized for each customer. Definitely try their most popular drink,  the mint mojito.

Can’t stop wearing my fave Kate Spade sunnies! No shame when it comes to big ol’ bug eyes.
