I had a business dinner with a brand in Anaheim the other night and I wanted to look put together, but yet still fashionable with out being over the top. So I shopped my closet and came out with this little number.
I’ve been remixing and shopping my own closet a lot lately and it’s been a lot of fun! It’s also presented as a challenge because I have to get creative and figure out ways to wear certain items in many different ways.
The downfall for this though is that the clothes I’m wearing are no longer sold so I’ll have to find similar items on-line in case you guys might want to recreate this look. Thanks for stopping by!

Celebrated the first day of summer with my family in a very casual way. We all slept in pretty late yesterday which is something we LOVE to do! We then went out to eat to Malibu Cafe which is a gorgeous outdoor restaurant with an incredible atmosphere. We ate, walked around, played ping pong, and sat by the creek with a mint julep at hand. Perfect first day of summer!

Summer is my favorite time of the year because there’s nothing better than a warm summer night!
I love to wear clothes that easily transition from day wear to night wear with the change of accessories. The outfit that I’m wearing is a beautiful romper c/o Kardashian Kollection. You can wear this during the day for some afternoon shopping with sandals and change into wooden platforms for a summer night dinner or event like I did here.
My hair was kept easy and minimal. I created waves with a large wand from the Curl Jam set form NuMe and tied a small section of hair around the crown. I then sprayed it with a flexible hold hairspray to lock in the waves. The cool thing about the waves is that they last for a few days. I love to add texturizing balm on my ends the following morning for a beachy, messy look.
Since the look is for a night out, I went with a little bit more makeup than I usually would during the day. I used this AMAZING new clay foundation by Tarte Cosmetics which gave my skin full coverage, yet it was still light and breathable. I then added a summer glow using the Benefit Watts Up! highlighter down the bridge of my nose and my cheekbones. For my lips, I went with a magenta shade lip color to match the small flowers on my romper and that pretty much completed the look.

As requested, I’ll be reviewing the new ‘Benefit They’re Real! Push-up Liner’. It’s a gel eyeliner pen that was recently released at the price point of $24 USD. I first heard about this product at this very secretive event at the Roosevelt Hotel. It was a release party for this new product for bloggers and the media. What caught my attention was the innovating design that was put into this liner. The AccuFlexTM tip is something I’ve never seen before, and it makes the world of difference when you’re applying gel liner. The tip hugs your lash line and it gives you immense control and flexibility on design.
I still have to get used to it when it comes to lining the inner lash line. It’s been coming out uneven the first few times that I have applied it, but for the most part, I love it! I’ve been wearing intense cat eyes for the past few weeks and have gotten tons of compliments on my liner. It’s also great for this hot weather because it doesn’t flake and does not transfer on the lid.
In the video, I’m also demonstrating the removal process. Benefit also came out with a new eye makeup remover called ‘They’re Real! Remover’. It’s a very gentle yet powerful creamy gel formula that easily removes the liner. This product is coming soon and it’s valued at $18 USD. Using any oil based makeup remover or coconut oil will do the job though.
My ideal price point for this push-up liner would be $15.00. What do you guys think?
Let me know your feedback on this product either on the comment section here, or on my video. The more we communicate the more we can all help each other out.
Thank you for stopping by!
