Last week, we had another great event at Andre's Bistro & Bar. The restaurant was gorgeous and the service was amazing. We had a couple of vegans as well and there really was something for everyone on the menu. We had duck fat fries, lobster mac and cheese, charcuterie, and a few vegan items that everyone really enjoyed. 


We also had a round of the cutest violet cocktails. 
I'm not a drinker but these were absolutely delicious!

The real star of the show, of course, was dessert. I sampled a little bit of everything and these sweets were to die for. The selection was fantastic- the lemon tart and the pot de creme were my two favorites because of the variety of flavors. 


Andre's was perfectly chill for our relaxation themed swag bag. We had a great selection of goodies from some really fantastic sponsors- Lavender Macaron brushes and my beloved Sugar Twists from Milk + Sass; all kinds of lavender scented spa goodies from our friend, Kara, a local rep for Perfectly Posh; a wonderful lavender scented body wash from Not Soap Radio (I just love the product names too); Patchology night Flashpatches; and some delicious Sleep and Calming chocolates from Good Day Chocolate. Basically, the swag bags had the most awesome goodies for the perfect spa day!

Such an amazing night with a great group of girls!

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!
