9/30 Meet and Greet @ The Warehouse Sale's 7 for All Mankind Event - Los Angeles Convention Center


I know many of you have requested a meet and greet but I haven’t much opportunity to escape my busy life’s responsibilities. This Thursday, however, I will be spending the afternoon at the Los Angeles Convention Center for the Warehouse Sale’s 7 For All Mankind event!

Thursday is actually the media event and I received VIP tickets so that whoever is able to attend can come meet and shop with me! Jeans will be 65 a piece, a steal, and 7FAM clothing [tops, sweaters, tees] will also be available! The event is from noon until eight pm but I will only be present from noon to two at the latest. Please try to make it before noon because I will be there 30 minutes early to chat and pass out the VIP passes ☺ Once I enter the event, I will not be able to make it back out to distribute more passes!

Los Angeles Convention Center Address:
South Hall J – 1201 S. Figueroa St.
Los Angeles, CA 90015

RSVP for the Public Event [Friday, Saturday, and Sunday]: http://www.7forallmankind.thewarehousesale.com/

I have worn 7FAM jeans since I was a teenager in high school and they have since been my go-to daily wear denim brand ever since. I actually visited The Warehouse on Friday and reviewed a few of my favorite pieces that will be available at the sale! Think of it as an exclusive sneak peek from yours truly! I discuss the various cuts and quality of the pieces my twin sister is modeling. We’re very meticulous shoppers so the video may offer you some insight about how we pick our clothes! I will post the video in a few hours and update this post with a blog link.

If you can’t make it on Thursday afternoon but are interested in the sale, it opens up to the public on Friday and will remain open until Sunday. The denim will be sold upon the first come, first serve bases but there are THOUSANDS of pieces available so you aren’t hard-pressed to arrive on Thursday.

For more information, please visit the website! And don’t give up just because you can’t make it to my meet and greet! There are sales in San Francisco, New York, and Chicago so leave a comment if you have questions and I’ll do my best to address them.

I will announce on twitter my location at the convention center so please stay tuned!

See you all there <3


P.S. I'm not making any commission off the sales. Since I love designer denim and talk about it frequently, I figured my viewers would be interested in snagging a great deal on worthwhile jeans and get to meet me, too! Hitting two birds with one stone, haven't you heard? ^_~

REVIEW: Bobbi Brown Denim and Rose Palette

*The products are shown true to color for the sake of those who need to order online without seeing the product first. If you would like to see the palette in action as well, check out my tutorial!


Bobbi Brown's Fall 2010 Denim and Rose Collection caught my eye first and foremost because of the packaging. I'm not a denim addict but it's a rare occasion when a palette packaged in denim is released. That translates to MUST-BUY! Plus, the palette does not have a standard closure.. it has a zipper! And I love zippers as accents, especially when they're practical! :)

Colors Included: Navajo and Gray Denim [new] shadows, Pink Granite and Dark Rinse [new] Shimmer shadows, Pink Rose blush, Cool Rose and Indie Rose lipstick, Iced Lilac glitter lip gloss, and Hot Rose [the bright pink] lip gloss.

Fall is my favorite season of the year but this palette shouldn't be limited to use in the fall. All the shades are classics and universally flattering. All the shades are wearable, even the deep Indie Rose lip color. I like to apply it sheerly with a lip brush and use the Hot Rose lip gloss! The only product that I absolutely dislike is the Pink Granite sparkle shadow. It has MAJOR fall-out and does not stick to my eyes, even with a primer. You could spritz your brush with water and apply it that way but I personally do not like to use my shadows wet or with a mixing medium so I was disappointed in that shadow as it looks lovely sitting in the pan.

It was a bit on the expensive side but because all the colors are so easy to use on a day-to-day basis, it is worth the $70-something [that's including tax] you will spend. I will be reserving this for travel, as it's convenient and portable, so it's not the best purchase for me. But I'm positive the ladies who are always fixing themselves up on the go will appreciate this versatile and wearable palette!

It is a limited edition piece so pick it up while you still can!

A Suede Story: OPI's Here Today, Aragon Tomorrow

This is my first Suede polish and I'm impressed. Here Today, Aragon Tomorrow is the newest addition to the Suede family and I purchased it because I was informed the polish's formula was improved. I am wearing this polish in my August Favorites video!

Application: 2 coats provide opaque color and surprisingly, the polish dries very quickly! It has a matte finish, while the glitters add a bit of texture. It applies smoothly and for the most part, evenly. OPI's professional brush is the perfect fit for my nails!

Color: Without a top coat, the color is a dry (boring) forest green with a bit of metallic shimmer. Personally, I would never wear the suede finish alone. I feel as though it ages my hands, which already look older than your typical 21 year-old's hands. With a top coat, however, Here Today, Aragon Tomorrow shines! Literally, it shines. The green base brightens up to a rich forest green and the metallic shimmers burst with iridescent color under the sunlight. I love it!!
