Vegas Lifestyle Influencers- 595 + Bumble BFF

I know I've said it before, but making friends is hard.

I'm so fortunate I found an amazing group of likeminded women here in Vegas. I have to say, I got a lot of weird looks and unresponsiveness when I reached out to girls in town about starting Vegas Lifestyle Influencers. It was really discouraging some days; however, I'm so happy I put in the work and effort because I love our blogger group!

I reached out to Bumble BFF to partner for this event because I really love the concept of a friends app. So many girls (myself included) have tried online dating so why wasn't there some online friending? Bumble BFF really takes the awkwardness out of reaching out to make friends and gives you a safer space to do it. You don't have to do it the hard way, like I did!

This was our largest event so far, in terms of turnout. We had a fun space at a new local spot, 595 Craft & Kitchen. They provided us with some starters and a round of drinks and we had a pretty cute, cozy space. I love the look of the restaurant and the service was great.

I put together all these fun graphics with The Bees Knees by Bella Gypsy Designs!

The very best parts of fried chicken- the skin.

How cute is this ice box dessert???

We had some of the cutest swag ever at this event! Bumble BFF provided some awesome decor and party pieces, It's a 10 Haircare made sure the changing seasons don't destroy our hair, Hey Honey is covering our fall skincare (and lipcare) needs, and Pixi Beauty is once again showing us that gorgeous cosmetics can always be affordable.

Since we had all these adorable Bumble pieces, I had asked the ladies to wear yellow and I have to say, the pictures came out pretty cute!

Thank you so much to 595 Craft & Kitchen, Bumble BFF, It's a 10, Hey Honey, and Pixi Beauty for sponsoring our event. As usual, all opinions are my own!

The Make Up Show Pop Up

A couple weekends ago, I requested my first press pass for the Make Up Show Pop Up at Red Rock Casino. I'd never tried to get into any event or convention as media before and honestly wasn't sure if my request would be honored but it was.

The Pop Up was pretty small but so much fun. I went with a group of friends who are all beauty bloggers so they knew exactly where to direct me and we walked around the entire show at least once. No joke, I saw some of the best beauty deals I've ever seen!

Some of the booths were so pretty too!

Ten pairs of lashes for $20 and they even threw in some extras!

All kinds of brushes.

So many colors.

I went home with some amazing purchases and this huge bag of swag from the sponsors of the event!
Such a fun way to spend an afternoon and stock up on some great pieces!!!

My New Korean Beauty Faves

I love Korean Beauty products.

I know they're all the rage now but I've always been a huge fan of Asian skincare. Maybe it's because I'm Asian but it's nice having such an abundance of products that were designed with my skin concerns in mind. I'll admit, my skin is fairly resilient. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and even the harshest scrubs rarely irritate or even impact my skin in any way. Even so, as I get older, it's nice to have a good variety close at hand for any occasion.

I discovered Klairs when I partnered with Wishtrend for our recent K-Beauty BBQ event. I love trying out new K-Beauty brands. Wishtrend sent us some really great Klairs products and a bundle of fun samples. Even better- they sent us some information about the products so we wouldn't be testing them completely blind. 

Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner- Toner is the one thing I always forget in my skincare routine. It's silly too because my skin tends to be on the oily side. I don't like toners very often because they usually have a strong alcohol smell or something too medicinal or herbal. This toner has almost no scent. I love that. It balanced out the ph in my skin and kept it from getting overly oily. 

Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream- I am in love with this cream. My skin has been stressed lately because it's been a rough time and I've possibly taken on more projects than was wise. That said, my skin is definitely not happy with me. This cream is lighter, has a very faint scent (nothing overpowering or heavy), and feels great. It doesn't clog or irritate and it absorbs quickly. Plus, there's just something about that blue color that just seems calm in itself! Wishtrend also sent us a bunch of great Klairs samples that I still haven't broken into yet because I'm so in love with these two pieces and haven't bothered trying anything new since!

Skinfood has been a favorite of mine for a while and when they sent some goodies for our event, I was dying to try them all (the Black Sugar Wash Off Mask and the Bitter Green Clay to Foam were a huge hit with the other girls)! I ended up with the Egg White Pore Foam and I love it. In the summer, I feel like I'm washing my face 3-4 times a day because of sweat and grease and dust. I use this cleanser before bed and I feel like it really cleans all the residue off my face at night. I don't like feeling like my skin is dirty when I go to sleep and this cleanser just feels so clean. I love the foam and the lather it builds and it's not too thick to use with my cleansing brush for a little extra cleansing action. It also rinses off pretty easily which is a big plus for me!

I also got to try out some of the Marine Food Gel Masks. I got Jellyfish and Seaweed. The first thing I noticed about the masks was clearly that they are two pieces. I love this because my face is rather small so I usually have to trim the sides of my masks to avoid having a ton of product in my hair. The two pieces fit very well and didn't leave a lot of slack on the edges. The ribbed texture on the inside also made them stay pretty well. I haven't had a lot of experience with the hydrogel masks but I definitely love them a lot more than the regular paper ones because they don't feel dry and they mold to facial contours so much better! After the masks, my skin felt refreshed and smooth.

If you haven't tried out Klairs or Skinfood, I highly recommend them both!
As a bonus, here is a code for $3 off any Klairs order on Wishtrend: WISH3AUG

Wishtrend/Klairs and Skinfood sent us free product for reviews; however, all opinions are my own!

Vegas Lifestyle Influencers- K-Beauty BBQ

Photo by Tyler Mills

Bloggers like themes. Well, I know I do.

A couple months ago (even before Margaritaville), I thought it would be fun to do a K-Beauty themed event and what better place to do it than a Korean BBQ restaurant? We have a ton of K BBQ joints in town; however, none of them seemed appropriate for the occasion. Out of nowhere, I found 8oz Korean Steak House & Bar, a brand new K BBQ spot that hadn't even opened yet.

8oz was literally the most perfect place we could have held our gathering. First- the food is AMAZING. I took food purchasing classes in college and the cuts of meat used at 8oz are so far superior to most of the other BBQ places in Las Vegas (the other spots seem to use choice meats at best and mostly cheap select cuts). The cuts here are prime so the price is higher; however, you really get what you pay for when it comes to meat. We had all kinds of side dishes and combo orders of three cuts of meat (my favorite was the wagyu but everything was delicious).

Second- the service was outstanding. The manager was helpful and attentive throughout the entire process of setting up the event. Working so many years in restaurants and hotels, I always measure the service by the first point of contact whether it's a phone call or an Instagram DM. The servers were extremely informative and did the most amazing job of explaining the food and preparing it perfectly for us (we didn't even have to cook it ourselves).

Last- the restaurant is adorable. Because we were doing a blogger event, we needed something photogenic and 8oz was gorgeous. The restaurant is clean, the lighting is chill, and the music is festive and fun. The twelve of us shared a long table in the side room (which is perfect for private events too) and we had the most amazing time eating delicious food, seeing familiar and new faces, and taking photos/video of everything.

A huge thank you to Jae Yoo and all of the 8oz Korean Steak House staff for hosting our event and making our evening so memorable and amazing! As always, all opinions are my own.

Style Collective Dinner at Black Sheep

I love trying out great new restaurants, especially with my Style Collective sisters!

Last weekend, we had a fun dinner at Black Sheep and it was amazing! The restaurant is gorgeous and looks like it belongs closer to the Strip than the quiet residential area where it's located.

We had some amazing swag courtesy of Patchology, Cre8skin, Good Day Chocolates, Not Soap Radio, and Verb

The restaurant gave us such a cute set-up; we wanted to photograph everything!

The baby octopus was delicious and I'm not a big octopus fan.

 These spring rolls were so good! Perfectly crispy and not full of filler.

The Hamachi was amazing.

Spicy wings with some delicious sauce (these wings were huge). 

The tuna tartare was delicious.

Black Sheep only has one dessert and really, they don't need others. This chocolate tres leches cake was to die for, seriously.

Thank you so much to Black Sheep for hosting us! As always, all opinions are my own.
