PERFECT EYELASH TUTORIAL

Beauty

How to get PERFECT, BIG, SEXY, eyelashes!

Hey babes!

My latest beauty tutorial is here – how to get perfect eyelashes!!!👀 I get asked almost daily about my lashes, if they are fake, and if not, which mascara do I use?!

All V good questions.

Because when people see me WITHOUT mascara (referencing the horrifying image on the left) they never believe that my eyelashes are real. So, here we have it! The super-duper-officially-official eyelash tutorial. And proof that I don’t wear falsies every day. 😂 Because, ain’t nobody got time for THAT. 🙅🏼

I am obsessed with this video because there are SO MANY GOOD TIPPITY TIPS IN IT!! ✔ It’s great being able to share all the tricks I learned over my many years modeling and working with makeup artists.

And makeup is fun. I’m never not having fun whilst glamming. So there’s that too.

What do you guys think? Do you like this beauty tutorial? Or, do you have another favourite? Comment and let me know!

Ifffffff you like this tutorial, pleaseeeee click here and give it a thumbs up 👍🏼 on YouTube! I’m still a noobie in the Youtube world, and the “thumbs up” really helps my content get seen. 🙏🏼 Pls and thankssssyou! ❤

Also: thanks for your patience with the quality of my videos. It’s still only been about 3 months since I first shared a video, and I didn’t even notice the EXTREME difference in quality between my first posted video and now. I actually had someone comment on YouTube the other day saying how I used to look really shy and awkward and now I am being myself and the quality of my editing/filming has improved drastically. After she commented I went back and watched my earlier videos… OH MY GOD. I am already so embaressed and want to delete hahaha. Fuck. Oh well. They will be there for us all to laugh at I guess. Anyways, kind of a random tangent I am on here but I just wanted to thank you for your patience — I am so used to being photographed and writing all the time, but the video thing is new for me. The learning curve has beena wee bit steep, but I promise you things will be better and better with every edit. If there is something you ever want to see, please TELL ME! Slide on into my dms, comment here, whatever. I value your input a LOT. ❤

LOVE YOU ALL. GOOD LUCK IN THE OLYMPICS!  WHICHEVER TEAM YOU ARE CHEERING FOR! The whole world has come together for this event. Pretty epic considering the climate of things right now. (Again, the olympics really has taken over my life lolz.)

OK BI.

VANCOUVER VLOG + VDAY STORY

Travel

WADDUP VANCITY!

Yayyyy I love it when James Manzano and I work together on videos. His videography skills are like 100x better than mine, and his edits are SO DOPE.

With that, you should watch this vlog of mine from Vancouver! James absolutely killed it with the editing, and I had a really fun day that day. So yah, check it out.

K I NEED A MOMENT HERE FRIENDS.

I need to talk about my belated Valentine’s Day yesterday. 💞

If you aren’t into mushy gushy stuff, probably just go watch the video above and stop reading now.

Okay back to my moment. 😂

So Troy and I decided to not to Valentine’s Day on the 14th, because 1) it was a Tuesday, and 2) the restaurant scene is a hot frigging mess that day. Not a fan.

Sunday was our decided Valentine’s Day date. Troy planned the date and refused to tell me anything outside of: be ready at noon, it’s going to be a “mind-blowingly-awesome” date.

I was like KAY I LIKE ALL THOSE THINGS. 😄 Ready at noon I shall be.

The date started by us driving up the Pacific Coast Highway from Santa Monica to Santa Barbara. We stopped for lunch along the way. But the drive itself is the real highlight here. Some of the most beautiful oceanfront is along this drive and it was prettttyyyyyyy. 🌊

Once we arrived at Santa Barbara I still have no fing clue what we are doing. Troy proceeds to tell me we have dinner reservations later at some mystery restaurant. I’m like k but what NOW THO..

Turns out, until dinner we would be WINE TASTING! 🍷🍷🍷

Something about me to know, I fucking love wine tasting. It fuels my soul. And I’m like, really really good at it. hahaha. I was so happy. It was awesome.

We tasted away, and got progressively more drunk as time went on. I embarrassingly documented this on my instagram stories but what else is new. I have no shame.

It’s time for dinner and Troy had to drag me away as I was begging to “pleaaaaaseeeee just do one moreeee!!!!”🍷I was having fun, don’t judge my alcoholism. You know how it is. 😉

He managed to get my away from the vineyards to go to this little Japanese restaurant. It had (hands DOWN) the best Japanese food I’ve ever had. And you know me, I like to eat a LOT, and am super picky about quality. This place, was the SHIT. (Like the good ‘the shit’ not literal shit.)

Anyways it’s one of those fancy shmancy restaurants where they have one set menu, and that’s it. No a la carte bs here. This is what we serve, and you will like it.

OBSESSED.

I am 99% sure I was making inappropriate groaning noises super loud through the entire dinner and other people were looking at me and wondering wtf was going on.. BUT IT WAS SO GOOD. Just thinking about it now I want to drive back up there and relive the experience. 🍲 🍥 🍣

If you are interested, the restaurant is called Yoichi’s. If you are ever in Santa Barbara, GO. Trust me on this one. You will love it.

****Disclaimer: the entire meal was delicious, except for the desert. Major fail on their part because after such an over-the-top amazing meal, they should have finished strong. Still would go again tho cuz everything else was unreal.

Anyways, thank you Troy for a fabulous belated Valentine’s Day. I love you and appreciate you. ❤

Ok going to do my laundry now, and go to bed. Was that weird I told that whole V day story here? LOL jk nothing is weird here at this point.

VALENTINE’S DAY 2018

Lifestyle

When you’re expecting a puppy…

LOL! Totally kidding, I am not actuallllly expecting a puppy for Valentine’s Day.

… or am I… 😂

hahah anyways,

Happy Valentine’s Day lovers!!! ❤

No matter what your relationship status is this year, I hope you are having a happy day. Treat yourself, buy yourself something sweet/salty/carby… whatever floats your boat and wash it down with some rose. Because, we deserve it.

All about just having a great day today, with or without a significant other! You can easily get drunk and judge the olympics from the comfort of your own  home, and have a  grand old time. I did it last year (minus the olympics part) and it was fab.

This year, I have a bae, and we are actually just chilling out tonight. We will be doing our very official ‘Valentine’s Day date’ this weekend when the restaurant craziness calms down.

So the plan to get drunk and be an at-home olympic figure skating judge still stands lol.

Anyone else doing this tonight?? Just me?

Message me your vday plans on instagram! Love to catch up with you guys and know whats happening in your lyyyfeeee.

Hugs and kisses! 😘

LAKE TAHOE TRAVEL VLOG

Travel

Lake Tahoe is the best!

Ah yes, here it is friends! My official travel vlog from Lake Tahoe. I love this because I feel like I get to have you along with me on my trip. Much more personal 🙂

We skied a total of 3 days, and I give my reviews on all 3 mountains local mountains we tried: Northstar, Squaw, and Alpine Meadows. Lake Tahoe is one of the most beautiful places, and there is nothing quite like traveling into the nature for a few days.

If you guys like this vlog, it really super helps my content get shown through the YouTube algorithm if you throw it a “thumbs up” and/or leave a comment! 👍🏻

More importantly, it helps me learn which videos you like the most. 😊

LAKE TAHOE

Travel

Champagne apres at Northstar Resort

What a week! 🎿

Last night we arrived home pretty late from our ski trip to Lake Tahoe. It was one hell of a great trip. Tried to snap as much as I could on my instagram stories, but I was so happy just skiing and enjoying life that I actually kind of forgot about instagram for a hot minute.

THE HORROR. 😱

I. Know.

It was legit a like a day, but I missed doing my usual snap-everything-I-see-and-do routine. 😝 Also there was barely any service, not because we were in a super remote location, but because I have what is likely the worlds shittiest cell carrier lol.

I digress.

Our trip to Lake Tahoe was abosultely amazing. We were there for 4 days and did 3 full days of skiing. I was a happy little clam indeed. ☺

We stayed in a condo right at the base of Northstar Ski Resort, which were as ski-in-ski-out as it gets. Literally about 6 ft between the base of the ski hill and our front door. Not too shabby at all. 👌🏻

Throughout the trip we actually skied on 3 different mountains.

DAY 1: NORTHSTAR!

Northstar is pretty flat, but a really chill fun mountain. The pictures of me getting loose at the champagne apres above are at Northstar. They do a pretty epic champagne toast at 2 pm every day.

Like, YES PLEASE?!

So if you are novice/intermediate skiier or an advanced skier who likes to be lazy, this is the mountain for you.

DAY 2: SQUAW

I can’t EVEN with the name of this one. Like, just say it out loud… s q u a w….. Not the prettiest. BUT, the skiing here was super fun! Lots more terrain and a bunch more challenging runs. So you aren’t sleeping half the time while you are skiing. lol.

DAY 3: ALPINE MEADOWS

Also so great! A variety of terrain here, so it’s good for any level of skiier. My only complaint would be the food was so nasty it was almost inedible. And it was hella expensive. Not impressed. I mean, all ski resorts are way overpriced but at least you expect the food to not look like something served at a federal prison. You know? I don’t ask for much. Just edible.

And of course, I was vlogging this whole trip! So I will share the video in a few days so you can get some visuals on all these different mountains. Really excited about this vlog, because you really get to come along with me on this trip. Pretty awesome.

Time to go start getting ready for dinner. Tonight I am making some sort of mushroom/quinoa/arugula concoction that I will 99.99% be insta-gramma-lamma-ing. Stay tuned if you’re into that kinda thing. 😜

Happy Friday you sexy beasts!
