Ask Ms: Bra Fitting 101

Hello, hello! Today's post and video are going to be a little bit different than usual. It's fashion-related but it isn't about what's the best fashion for the season or what colors look best on different skintones. Nope, today we are gettin' naked for real. FOR REAL. I am talking about boobies!!!

Ladies, finding the right bra is so incredibly important. I had always heard this and blown people off because I always just assumed that I would never find the right size bra since I am so petite but I was very abruptly re-informed when I received some bras from The Little Bra Company to see if I would review them. Because of my epiphany from this life-changing experience, I wanted to do bra-fitting justice in this silly and informative video.

Now, I know a lot of my blog readers don't watch all of my videos but I highly recommend all women to watch this one. I mean, I am wearing a freaking bra over my clothes. Doesn't the bravery of that at least deserve a watch? ;)



Products mentioned in this video:

Victoria's Secret Biofit Bra - 32A
The Little Bra Company Sascha Bra - (various sizes)
The Little Bra Company Lucia Bra
Victoria's Secret PINK Push-up Bra - 30A

I've also seen 30-band bras in various cup sizes at Nordstrom here and here, at Dillards here, and figleaves.com here, here, and even a 28 band here!

I'm not gonna lie, I was fairly terrified to post this since I know I'm going to get comments about being flat-chested, young, or that I need to eat a sandwich or something but things as important as wearing a properly fitting bra deserve a really good entry. So far, what I've noticed from the youtube comments is that people were surprised at how silly I am! I'm happy to say that my regular blog readers will not find my antics in this video shocking in the slightest. ^.~

Anyway, as I said in the video, it's so important to find the right fitting bra size because of all of the consequences that a badly fitting bra can produce. Let me list a few of the pros and cons out for you.

Problems from an ill-fitting bra:

- permanent accumulation of back fat
- permanent ditches in the shoulders from straps
- not enough support, causing saggy boobs
- dividing breast tissue fat (causing back fat/smaller boobs)
- less cleavage
- back problems because of uneven weight distribution

Pros of a properly fitting bra:

- perkier breasts
- more cleavage (even for petite-breasted ladies!)
- bigger breasts from proper boob-scooping
- looking more fit/skinnier
- no back fat or shoulder ditches
- appearance of better posture
- clothes look much nicer

Here are my TLBC Sascha bras in size A all lined up. I wanted to show you how different the same cup size can be for different bras. As you can see here, not only is the actual band bigger, but each cup is a whole cup-size different. The 32A cup would be like a 28C cup, or for a reverse example a 34B cup would be like a 38AA cup.


Here you can see the difference between the 32A and 28A more clearly. 2 cup-sizes different although both A cups!


Here also I wanted to show the difference in cup width proportion. Proper cup width can actually make your boobs look bigger because it pulls them in front of your torso where they should be. This 32A has a much wider cup width than this 30A and as I showed in the video, doesn't give me much cleavage. I actually ended up buying the Lucia in 28B which fits me much better than this 30A did.


Now I want to go into more detail into the actual bras that I received. The Little Bra Company didn't in any way pay me and were only expecting a bra review. (Therefore, this video should be a bit of a surprise. lol.) I didn't mention this in the video but I am in love with my new TLBC bras. I've never had the kind of fit from any bra in my life as I have had from their bras and am very impressed and satisfied with the quality. I'm happy with the shape of the bras themselves because they look great under clothes and, of course, alone as well. They have the perfect amount of push-up that I am comfortable with and they are comfortable to wear too. Did I mention they give me cleavage? XD

I do want to mention for those of you who are considering purchasing a TLBC bra, the Lucia band runs much looser than the Sascha so you may want to purchase your traditional size rather than their recommended 1 band size up. I wear my Lucia on the tightest hook while I wear my Sascha on the loosest, but both in a 28B. I'd probably fit the Lucia in a 26 band better if they made it. Also for reference, my over-bust measurement is 28 inches and my under-bust is 24 inches. My actual bust measurement is 28 inches while wearing the Sascha (aka not a ton of push-up) so I'm quite petite!

Note that the traditional bra sizing method is:
5 + underbust = band size
(bust measurment) - (5+underbust) = cup size 1 (1=A, 2=B, 3=C, etc)

According to this, I am a 29AAA. Sad, incorrect panda! Therefore, I've inferred that it is simply not applicable to those who are more petite than traditional bra sizes. Epiphany!

I don't really want to get into the whole media ideal of large breasts but I will say this: It took me a long time to be totally happy and proud of my breasts and my body as a whole. I'm sure nearly all of you can relate to this. It was incredibly frustrating to feel like I am somehow less of a woman because I had A-cups or didn't fill out even some of the 32A's that I would try on. It's really quite demoralizing and embarrassing. What do you tell the Victoria's Secret associate when they measure you as a 28AA (which they will never, ever, ever carry) and you know they are wrong and all they can do is shake their heads in pity? For me the only answer was, as for many things in my life, to kick myself in the butt, hold my head up high and say, "I AM a woman and I deserve to feel confident, sexy, and every bit of an intelligent and beautiful being as God created me to be."

I'm sure finding the perfect bra won't be as life-changing for everyone as it was for me but I hope that my slice of insight will at least help some of you to have the bravery to be fitted for the correct bra as well, so that you can face the world with some powerful under-armor, not just for your clothes but for your mind and heart too. We can be proud of our boobies at any size! ROAR! ^o^

Anyway, today I am wearing the grey leopard VS bra that I showed at the end of the video and seeing myself in it, I think my "girlfriends" actually have gotten larger since I've been wearing my new 28B's and 30A's that really do fit. I'm not kidding you, I cannot even put on my old 32A's anymore. Would it be totally weird if I had a bra blogsale? Some of my "old" bras are basically brand new and are really pretty. Maybe some of you ladies, after getting bra fitted, can come back here and buy some very nice bras that don't have a good home anymore! Let me know if you'd be interested. ;)

Petite ladies, stay tuned for a bra giveaway from The Little Bra company very soon! I'd be thrilled to pass on the positive experience I've had with the proper bras to someone else. Hope you can all be a little "perkier" and "uplifed" from here on out! LOL.

Disclaimer: The TLBC Sascha Bras were provided by The Little Bra Company for fit and they gifted me the correctly fitting one, as well as the matching bottoms. All other bras mentioned (including the TLBC Lucia) were purchased by myself. This post contains some affiliate links.

Urban Decay Naked Palette Video Tutorial

Hey everyone! I feel like it's been a bajllion years since my last update although it's only been one week. Well, I had an excellent break at the lake and it was great to finally have a really relaxing time with my only obligations being reading all of the huge September issues of fashion magazines and taking midday naps while laying out on the dock. My worst problems were wondering if my sunscreen washed off and being sore from jetskiing so much. I'm not gonna lie, I can't wait to go back! 

I'll do a small update on all that in a few days but today I wanted to do a good, meaty update since it's been so long since my last post. I've gotten tons of requests to do a look using the Urban Decay Naked Palette which I was totally obliged to do considering I've been using it nearly every day since I bought it.

You'll have to forgive my GINORMOUS zits because it was that "time of the month" which I added in the video because I'm a classy lady like that. No matter. I wore this look to church and I'm pretty sure God isn't as offended as mere humans at the sight of hormonal growths on chins. ;)




Products mentioned:

Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream #23
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Urban Decay Naked Palette - virgin, half baked, darkhorse, creep
Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Whiskey (included in Naked palette)
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler
Fairy Drops Mascara
Shisem Eyelash in XOG "teuk"
LashGrip waterproof eyelash adhesive in Dark
MAC Blot Powder in Medium Dark
Lioele Artist Auto Eyebrow in Black
Rock & Republic Pressed Contrived Blush in Call Me
Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Airy Fairy

And of course, the look in a few photos. Can I just rave for a minute on how much I LOVE this lipstick? Rimmel Lasting Finish is my new favorite drugstore lipstick for sure. I've been wearing Airy Fairy as an everyday staple as well. It's the perfect warm pink with just a hint of golden sheen.



The eyelids now with nifty shading action™!


I'm also wearing my most favorite Pins & Needles eyelet dress from Urban Outfitters which is now on sale online here. The 0 fits me perfectly even though it's strapless! I also  my silver lamb necklace. ^.^


Also, Eyeko Rain polish on my nails. It's a nice dusty blue/grey.



I think that's about it! I hope this tutorial was helpful for some of you lucky ladies that managed to snag one of the PERMANENT Naked palettes. Yup, permanent and still that crazy-hard to get ahold of. That reminds me, I'm pretty sure UD is going to be on Hautelook tomorrow. Probably won't be likely to have the Naked Palette already but it's worth a shot, no? (Nobody is obligated to sign up with my invite, but if you do need one you can sign up to join Hautelook here. :)

Everyone have a nice middle-of-the-week!

My Skincare Routine

I feel like this skincare post has been the most requested one out of anything I could possibly post about, even if I posted just pics of puppies and squirrels. And we all know how popular the last squirrel post was. Oh yeah, super mega popular.


Products mentioned:

Re-10 Wash (sodium sulfacetamide 10%)
Eucerin Everyday Protection Face Lotion SPF 30
Duac Topical Gel (clindamycin 1% & benzoyl peroxide 5%)
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair
Lioele Active Therapy Ampoule
Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Cream
Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream
StriVectin-SD Eye Cream
Differin Gel (adapalene gel .3%)



Sadly, no cute squirrel shots this time, just my 'ole mug. Apparently people think my skin is pretty nice although I pretty much always have one or two breakouts at any given time. Despite my being baffled at this contradiction, my excuse is that I have fairly good skin texture. This comes from a combination of good hydration, sunscreen, and proper exfoliation which could be either from a physical scrub or something like the Clarisonic, or it could be from a chemical like a retinoid (like Differin) which is what I use.

I really believe there's no magic to achieving your ideal skin, but it is really important to exfoliate, moisturize, and protect your skin. As I mentioned in the video, everyone needs moisturizer. Some people may say that they don't but I promise you, every single lady I've applied makeup on (even teens and women in their early 20's) who don't wear moisturizer, I can tell. Your skin may not feel dry but there will be wrinkles appearing on the forehead and around the eyes. Those wrinkles form through a combination of inadequate hydration and sun damage.

Thankfully, there are really inexpensive products that work well like my HG Eucerin Everyday Protection which is oil-free so it won't break me out. It also already contains spf 30 so it protects against the evils of wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.


Post-acne dark spots or what some people call "scars" are actually exacerbated by exposure to the sun so if you are someone who has battled hyperpigmentation and wonders why it takes so long to go away, consider that you may be able to avoid it getting as dark in the first place with this 1 small step! I won't completely prevent the spots but they do seem to not get as dark and they fade faster as well.

Sometimes it's really the simple things that work the best: products that don't have too much extra junk in them, sticking with a consistent routine, and living a healthy life in general. It's hard to see if something really works for you if you use it less than a month or on and off, and also hard if you aren't getting enough sleep or water.

Enough of my little rant, here is my daily regimen:

Morning

  • Wash face with Re-10
  • Moisturize with Eucerin Everyday Protection
  • Apply Duac (pea-sized) in trouble areas


Evening

  • Wash face with Re-10
  • Maybe apply a serum (Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair or Lioele Active Therapy Ampoule)
  • Apply StriVectin Eye Cream if I feel like being awesome
  • Moisturize with Vanicream
  • Apply Differin all over (half-pea sized, dotted on face then spread in)
I do want to mention (since I know I will be asked) that I am also taking Tri-Sprintec birth control which may be helping to keep my skin in order. It's generic for Ortho Tri-cyclen. 

As a disclaimer, I want to make it clear that I am not a doctor and cannot recommend any type of prescription medications to anyone and can only tell you my own experiences with the medications that I have personally used. It's absolutely not that I don't want to answer those questions, it's just that I really can't! I am completely not qualified to. I hope you guys understand and please feel free to ask questions about the products I do use which I haven't answered in past skincare posts. ^.^

Alrighty, time to do my own morning routine. Hope this vid and post are helpful!

Summer Fashion: Part 1 Casual Wear

Whoo buddy, it's been a long time since I did a fashion post hasn't it! Well, it's unfortunate because I've totally been taking photos of my outfits and they have been accumulating. Since I don't actually put together outfits for photos (they are just shots of what I've been wearing day-to-day) I haven't found a very good system for taking outfit shots. Please forgive my crappy self-cam mirror shots. ^.^ I'm just not as cool and sophisticated as some of those fashion bloggers out there and I lost the plate on my tripod. Pretty sure I tried the tripod thing and failed pretty badly anyhow. ;D I just have to train hubby to be a really awesome fashion photographer, and follow me around like paparazzi, photojournalistic style.

Yeah, right. LOL! Until then these will have to do.

As I said, I've been taking a lot of pics so I'll be chopping up the fashion posts into a couple of smaller posts, by style of clothing. Theses are my more casual outfits.

Here was my attempt (fail) at the tripod. I don't know. These were okay but some of the other shots were a little lame-o and washed out. Lucky for you, it's all down hill from here with snapshot city. LOVE this dress though!

american eagle dress size 00 (similar here)
michael kors knee high socks (similar here)

I flippin' love this necklace. I'm sure you'll see it pop up numerous times in this post, in fact. Nothing like a sparkly skeleton key necklace to make any "I put less effort into this outfit than a vegetable sitting still" outfit a little more snappy. See what I did there? I'm really just finding excuses to wear t-shirts to work.

black jacket from juniors' section at macy's xs (similar here)
american eagle "boyfriend fit" t-shirt xxs (similar here)
abercrombie kids landon skinny jeans 12 slim (similar here)
bcbgirls t-strap wedges size 4 (similar here and here)
kimora lee simmons for hello kitty necklace (similar here)

This outfit was when I was feeling a little more summery and adventurous. I wanted to look a little less put-together, hence the cray-cray hair and weird layers of clothing. Maybe my nails were yellow, who knows, but this outfit makes me feel like skipping.

old navy cardigan size xxs (similar here)
drapey ruffled tank dress from tj maxx size s (similar here and here)
7 for all mankind kids jeans size 10 (similar here)
random yellow wedges I never wear size 2 kids (similar here)

A FOTD from the same day because I wore MAC Viva Glam Cyndi and was loooooving it. Just a light beige shadow with black liner on the eyes to balance the bright lips.


Looks like I was in a yellow mood because the weather is all warm. Funny fact: I used to never wear yellow because I was afraid it would make me look really sallow since I'm already so yellow-undertoned. Boy was I wrong! I think yellow is lovely on Asians and an instant mood-lifter to boot. I have two different shoe options because I wanted to wear my new killer Sam Edelman wedges but it looked waaaay too risque for the office. My legs look longer with the nude sandals anyway. ;)

banana republic cardigan size xxsp (similar here)
bcbg dress size xs (similar here)
michael kors woven leather wedge sandals size 4 (similar here, here and here)

Ma' beloved kinleys. I have a sick misunderstanding that these shoes match everything. I love them. I am, like, almost 5'2" with these on (har, har). Obvs still too big for my petite size 3.5-4 tootsies but I couldn't help but buy it. The buckles make them tight enough to wear comfortably and shoes this cool don't come in my size. :( Also, my feet look like clompy pony feet when I wear them, it's basically amazing.


And ma' accessories. I love gold! This is basically the least amount of rings I'm ever wearing at any given time. Gosh dang, I am so gaudy. But not here! This here is classy jewelry.


A one-off outfit that I'm not sure I like, looking at it now. The black lace tank is doing weird triangular things, but at least my shoes look good M I RITE??

marshalls lace tank (similar here)
abercrombie landon skinnies size 12 slim (similar here)

This is another outfit that makes me want to skip around. Something about delicate pink nighties makes me want to wear them during the day, frequently. Gotta balance the sweetness with a blazer and my pony shoes.

bb dakota jersey blazer xs (similar here)
forever 21 nightie and tank top xs (similar here)
forever 21 marbled leggings xs (similar here)

Hey this looks a little familiar. Same outfit as the first one, but with the cardigan from outfit #4. I know you can't tell but it's navy blue and has little tucked details in the front. I do want to note that this dress shrunk in the wash from the first photo but it actually fits me better here. I love dresses + boots!

banana republic cardigan size xxsp (similar here)
american eagle dress size 00  (similar here)
michael kors knee high socks (similar here)

This is one of my favorite outfits from the bunch and it's actually pretty funny because some of the petite fash' bloggers seem to be on the same wavelength lately in terms of jackets. Extra Petite just posted about a Lucca striped jacket here and Alterations Needed posted about her seersucker one here. Mine is actually Lucca Couture kids. :) Unlined jacket and the waist is too wide but it fits great just draped open. Oh, and shoes are from a new website I stumbled upon that makes petite shoes www.pretty-small-shoes.com. I bought 3 heels during their summer sale and fell in LOVE with the company! The cut is perfect. ^.^

lucca couture kids striped blazer (juniors version here)
old navy lace top size xs (similar here)
american eagle t-shirt size xxs (similar here)
7 for all mankind kids jeans size 10 (similar here)
pretty small shoes 'classic' heels size 32 (similar here)

Another Lucca Couture kids item I grabbed was this Chanel-esque cardigan that literally fits like it was made for me. It's so rare for that to ever happen! And the dang pony shoes again. Sometimes I think I mix together randomness that doesn't make sense because shapes and colors just pop into my head and I need to dress how I "feel" that day. My colors-clothes-shapes-ideas mood.

lucca couture kids cardigan (similar here and here)
urban outfitters ribbon tunic tank size xs (couldn't find a similar tank but this bow tunic is cute!)
abercrombie kids grey skinny jeans size 10 (similar here)
rampage striped bag (cute striped bag here and one at UO here)

More drapey-ness, cardigans, and lace. If you can't find a belt that fits, just make one! Wow, I didn't even realize how often I've been doing braids until I went through these.

cardigan and tanks from tj maxx (gorgeous draped tank here)
nine west kids sandals (similar here)

And finally, this one probably deserves its own post butttt oh well. 80's inspired, pink, cheetahs, the perfect nude heels... What's better? Probably nothing.

target black leggings xs (similar here)
pretty small shoes 'eleganza' heels size 32 (similar here)
HQCD hello kitty earrings (similar here)

I was playing around with my Goody Spin Pin and did this messy bun action. Seriously dudes, I love these things. I know everyone's already talked about them before but would you want a hair how-to vid on them?

My hair looks so brown when I put it up. 0_o


I feel like I always look so dark tan when I use flash. Everyone else seems to look fairer. Very weird.


I still like natural light best. Check out my sweet bejeweled bunny ring from Claire's. Bought this when I bought my mood polishes. I am such a kid at heart! Hehe.


My eye makeup for good measure. I want to say I used MAC Satin Taupe or maybe some kind of purple blended just into the eyeliner line. I also used a good bit of MAC fluidline and Shisem falsies for a bright-eyed look.



ANYWAY, enough of my bad photography for today. That is, until Part 2 with my slightly dressier outfits. Hope you weren't too annoyed by the bajillion photos!

Let me know in the comments which your favorite outfit or piece was. ^.^V

The Body Shop's Petition to Stop Sex Trafficking

As a few of you who have been following me for the past year know, last winter there was a "Favorite Holiday Vlogger" contest on The Body Shop's website. Through your love and support in votes, I actually had the privilege of winning the contest. Even now, thinking back on it, I can't believe it happened but I am so grateful because it gave me the ability to bring light to a very dark situation that The Body Shop is working to combat.

I first heard that The Body Shop was working to raise awareness and garner support for the fight against sex trafficking through their Twitter which really moved me to the point of actually telling others about it 1-on-1 in my personal life and in a few e-mails to those who have sent me messages. Did you know that there are nearly 1.2 million children and young people forced into sex trafficking each year? That number astounds me. I can't even wrap my head around a physical number of people that large. It really breaks my heart that something so personal like sexuality could be manipulated into a cruel game of money and control, both mentally and physically.

This is why I decided to make this blog post. They have asked me to let you know that they are making a petition to the US government to give children greater protection against trafficking. It's easy to sign ECPAT and The Body Shop's petition here but hopefully with enough signatures, it can make a bigger difference in the world than us just typing our names in behind the safety of a computer.




I already signed it and it literally requires no login, no making any accounts, nothing to track back or spam you. All you need is your name and city and 5 seconds of your time. 

I also looked into what else we can do to help (without any request or e-mail suggesting it) and found that 100% of the proceeds from their Soft Hands Kind Heart hand cream will go to EPCAT, the Body Shop's global partner charity, to continue their important work. 



Also, $2 of each sale from the Stop Sex Trafficking Bag for Life (that is, 100% of the net proceeds) goes to the Somaly Mam Foundation.

http://www.somaly.org/ states that their mission is "[t]o give victims and survivors a voice in their lives, liberate victims, end slavery, and empower survivors as they create and sustain lives of dignity."


I know this sounds like just another post but I promise you, that's not what this is and not how I feel about it. It actually hits pretty close to home because just a couple years ago, part of a huge sex trafficking ring was shut down at several locations in the city I'm living in. This ring shuffled girls and women aged in their mid-teens to 20's from China to San Francisco, my city, New York, and a couple other cities in the US while only keeping them in each location for 3-4 weeks at a time in "Asian Massage" parlors where they were unpaid, cramped together, and watched on surveillance cameras. I was shocked because I live in a nicer suburban area that has a lot of pride in its education and safety.

The trickier thing is that legally, there are a lot of problems with defining sex trafficking since some people may have been led to it somewhat knowingly, or some coerced to leave their families for promises of money and freedom, or some not knowing what they are getting into altogether. Most are completely ashamed and would rather lie than dishonor their families back home. The blurry lines make it tougher to prosecute the ringleaders who would, of course, claim that everything was known beforehand and done willingly. I don't know about you, but this fires me up to no end.

I don't expect everyone to read through what I just wrote but if you did, I appreciate it. In a world where women and young people can be treated like they are sacks of potatoes to be used up and thrown away, I think it's our obligation as women with voices to speak for those who can't speak for themselves. Please add your name to the petition and lets pray that the government listens.

BoA "Game" Inspired Makeup Tutorial

Hi everyone! Today I have another "inspired" look to share with you. I have pretty much been obsessed with BoA's new music video "Game" ever since it came out, and it's been a pretty big deal since it's her first Korean debut for the last 5 years. I've actually been a fan of BoA from the beginning when my cousin shared the "ID: Peace B" video with me. What can I say, she was everything I wanted to be: choreographed, cute, with a bomb voice, and no awkward stage!

I still can't dance or sing quite like she can but what I CAN do is pretend like I'm as cool as her makeup artist and copy the look. ;]

Here's BoA's music video "Game" from her just-released album Hurricane Venus.


And here is my version of the look:


Sorry about the bad lighting. It was actually daytime when I started recording but I ran into a few roadblocks along the way during recording and by the time I finished the cicadas were roaring outside and it was pretty much time for bed. ;3

If you noticed the change in editing style, it's because I completed this on my new Macbook Pro using iMovie! I know you probably don't care but I didn't type out all the products during the video since it was a lot of extra editing steps and I don't know if people actually read them. I also talked through the video which I still kind of suck at! Haha. I just want to test a few different ways of recording and editing so if you have any feedback, please do let me know what you prefer to see. ^.^

Her and me. Me and she.


Here are some screencaps I took of BoA's video:


Products used in this look:

Urban Decay Primer Potion
L'Oreal HIP Crayon in Black
MAC Carbon Eyeshadow
NYX Jumbo Shadow Pencil in Cottage Cheese
NYX Ultra Pearl Eyeshadow in White Pearl
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
Coastal Scents Cosmetic Glitter Powder in Crystal Teal
Pretty and Cute Glamour Lash in #048
Pretty and Cute Glamour Lash in #077
Covergirl Lash Exact Mascara
Rock & Republic Contrived Pressed Blush in Tease
Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick in 070 Soft Nude
Lioele Blooming Gloss in Vanilla Pink




Maybe some of you caught on that I took the makeup look from one section and the hairstyle/outfit from another. ^.^ It's because I loved her 80's style outfit from the "street" look and thought it would be more fun to recreate. Here's more picspamming because you can't do a look this crazy and not take tons of pics to remember it by, M I RITE?


And just because I can, here is an overdose of inspired silliness.


My hand and I have great conversations.


Those with keen eyes may notice that I popped in my black Geo ck-109 lenses to try to get BoA's super black eyes. This was a fail, but an interesting effect nonetheless. I think the lenses actually balance the cray cray of the look in general.

I do also want to update you guys on my Pretty and Cute coupon code. Previously you could get a free Lioele mirror but I was concerned that a lot of you already have the mirror now, so I wanted to update my code so you could get something else fresh with your orders. I talked with Janie and we decided on a free Pretty & Cute foundation brush with a P&C order of $35! I do have one myself and it's very nice quality (much softer and higher quality in my opinion than the Sigma one that I tried and hated).


OK, I think that's everything. I hope you have a good weekend! As for me, I have a Hanson concert to see. I will not be wearing this look to it lest I scare the long, blonde hair off their heads. It could happen.

XOXO
