Summer Days In LA

 


Hey! Hope everyone had an awesome summer ☀:)
Living across the state from our family is different but we make sure to visit every chance we get. It’s funny how now we’re tourists in our old hometown lol but we enjoy it. For Father’s Day weekend we went to Universal Studios and everything looks so different when you have a 10 month old with you. They find everything more entertaining and you want to take every photo possible (I’m only sharing a few cause it’s wayyy too many lol).
Whenever I visit, I pretty much become a mom for those days lol. I have my nephew with me all day and night and spoil him like crazy. He’s great at restaurants! They loved him at Bottega Louie haha he’s such a flirt! Last weekend we were there and i got him this Mercedes Benz which he’s obsessed with! He’ll rather be in this than his stroller now lol. But I must say it’s pretty cool!
I'm excited that Summer is over and it's finally Fall! Which makes us closer to the holidays ! Do you miss summer and want it back? Or excited for the months to come? :)

MONARK First Annual BBQ Battle

    

It's finally Summer! So time for beaches, pools, and BBQ. I recently got invited to attend a First Annual BBQ Battle hosted by MONARK Premium Appliance Co. in Santa Clara, CA.
Everyone's grilling was on point and the food tasted amazing ! So I'm going to be sharing the winners menu.
They cooked on their DCS grill by Fisher & Paykel.:
  • Grilled Pasture Raised Tri-Tip
  • w/ Multi Colored Bell Peppers, Zucchini & Smoked Paprika Pineapple
  • Served over Herbed Potato Salad w/ Chives, Tarragon, & Parsley
I'm definitely going to try this during our next Summer BBQ. It was a great event that I hope I get to attend next year. 
If you're looking into a grill I highly recommend DCS, it has everything you need and more at a great price compared to the rest! I provided the link to their website below so you can look at this products. Right now I'm eyeing their refrigerators ! Very chic !
 
Let me know if you're into these type of events and if you get your hands on a grill :) I want to end this post by thanking Fisher & Paykel for inviting me to this event and letting me be there to watch their win !

Our 24th Birthday


A very late post but better late than never. Luis and I have our birthdays a week apart and this was our first time celebrating living in the Bay. For Luis, I spoiled him with a Gucci watch, went out to eat in Walnut Creek, and had cupcakes at home to sing him happy birthday. He was happy with his watch lol and had a great birthday.
 
My birthday was actually a HUGE surprise! My entire family drove the 6 hour drive to the Bay to spend my birthday with us. It was so sweet and touching because they all either called out sick from work and made arrangements to be able to stay just for that day. It was a time crunch to do as much as possible, but it was an amazing day. What really touched my heart was having my nephew with me, he means the world to me and I had no idea they were coming to visit. When I saw my brother bring my nephew from the car it just had me crying tears of joy. I was never the closest with my family, but with this new living distance it's definitely made me miss and appreciate my time with them.
 
Besides having the gift of them visiting, my mom actually gifted me a gorgeous Louis Vuitton wallet and Luis gave me the gift of diamonds lol. A new pair of gold half carat diamond earrings and a gold bracelet with diamonds. Which I'm obsessed with! What I love about gold and diamonds is I never have to take these pieces off, so I have them on 24/7.
 
We're prepping for summer now and are excited to enjoy some sun. How are you?  Is it your birthday soon? Any plans or life events you want to share?  Let me know in the comment below :)

Blush Collection

 
I've been all about makeup lately, in my last post I shared my eye shadow collection. Now I'm showing you what I have for blushes. I have a couple knew and definitely a couple of old and used. I'm trying out Morphe's new blush and so far I love it and will definitely buy more of them. The rest are some of my classics that I've used for years and like to keep in my collection.
 
What's in your possession and any you recommend? Let me know in the comments below :)

Morphe & Urban Decay Eyeshadow Collection

Hello, I was going to do one post for my entire makeup collection but I realized how long of a post that would be lol. So I'll be doing separate post, this will be more for eye shadows.
 I didn't realize I had these many palettes lol
I think I'll be fine until the next one drops with summer colors
 When I lay them all open together I realize how similar yet different the colors are lol.
 These 4 Morphe palettes get me every time! The small ones are perfect for when I travel but I always like to find a way to alternate and determine my outfits after my makeup is done. 
I'll link them down below so you can go ahead & try them, trust me you need to have these.
I've had these Urban Decay palettes for quite some time, longer than the Morphe ones actually.
I am a fan of the pigmentation on the Naked Smoky Palette but it is one I rarely use due to the colors. Compared to the colors in the Naked 3 palette the pigmentation really doesn't stay long and the color don't pop even when I use the primer. It's one I actually use to play makeup with my nieces.
 
I guess you can tell my favorites are definitely the Morphe palettes due to the high value of pigmentation, they last me all day even after a workout at the gym. It's hard for me to say which one is my favorite because they all are.

Vegas Valentine


I can't believe it's been almost two weeks since Valentines Day!
It feels like just yesterday Luis & I were in Vegas. His gift to me was a week getaway in Las Vegas! We went to 1OAK, walked the strip with a Fat Tuesday always in our hand lol, celebrated Valentines Day with dinner at Hexx, and ended our trip with a night at Chateau Rooftop Nightclub.
This was our first trip since moving and it was much needed. Ever since Luis got his new job promotion, he does work a bit more than before which is more lonely for me now since I don't have family near by. We always have date night once a week and keep planning future trips to have something to look forward towards.
 
What did you do for Valentines Day this year? Let me know :)
