twice as naked.

My sister got me the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette as a birthday gift! I was contemplating this purchase myself but decided against it because as you can see, my first Naked Palette has barely been used. I haven't tried all the shades yet, but from first impressions I find the Naked 2 more wearable for me because there is less shimmer and I prefer its metal packaging to the original velvet.  If you are trying to decide which one to purchase, I think you'll be fine with either!

ready for summer.

Although summer isn't going to be here for a while, I can't help shopping like it's tomorrow! Above, a few bikinis and jewelry. You can probably tell that I really like high-waists, florals, and neons.

a couple drugstore buys.

There's been so many new cosmetic releases for spring, I couldn't help myself! Someone stop me from buying any more eyeshadow because that's something I don't use on a daily basis.

minty fresh manicure.

I have been obsessing over the color mint for a while now. Almost forgot I had this nail polish! So I'll be wearing it as I continue to look for that perfect mint piece for my closet.

Jeff and I went out to eat tonight at a Korean-Japanese restaurant in Chinatown. To satisfy both cultures we got duboki and an array of sushi.

nyc vs. la

I've been subscribed to Free People's catalogs for a long time, and they just keep getting better and better! I would say I dress more NYC, but I would rather be an LA girl. What about you?

my 21st birthday.

On the actual day of my birthday, I went shopping with Jeff and we went to see Girl With The Dragon Tattoo in the Lux Level since I am now 21. It's pretty awesome, but we managed to spend $100 at the movie theatre. What?! Afterwards we went out for sushi with my sisters and could not finish even half of it...

I'm 21? Oh well, nothing's gonna change.

updated christmas gifts.

Christmas was like almost a month ago, but here's some photos of the gifts using my new camera! Not the greatest because I was being lazy.
