Hello everyone! Today's Manicure Monday is in the same vein of neon pastels that I mentioned in my Spring Trends post that I've been loving. Deborah Lippmann's Tiptoe Through The Tulips is a soft orange creamsicle shade that I knew I would love right away. Doesn't it remind you of those push-up pops some of us had as a kid? The sherbet pastel will be so perfect for the upcoming summer!

Hey guys! Today I wanted to give you a peek into my closet and share a few organization tips that I use to keep everything accessible. I'm not gonna lie; I absolutely love clothes, shoes, and accessories but like most people I have to work within a specific closet space, plus I share it with my husband so I have a few tricks up my sleeve for maximizing closet potential.
For me it's really important to be able to visibly see what I have so that I can better choose what to wear and know what to get rid of as well. I'm notorious for keeping my closet at max capacity so it's imperative to keep it as orderly as possible. Hopefully some of my tips can help you guys organize your closets as well!

Hey guys! It’s about that time of year when the birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, and the beautiful scent of weather change is in the air. Along with the seasons getting both sunnier and warmer, I’ve had my eye on a lot of trends that have been tugging my heartstrings for Spring!
On the fashion front, you really can’t beat a great floral print paired with delicate jewelry like in my recent Spring Lookbook. The whole “neon pastel” color palette really speaks to me and I’ve been noticing myself gravitating toward those peaches, limes, and sky blues.

Hello everyone and Happy Easter! Today I wanted to share with you a lookbook that I worked especially hard on, hiking through mountains, flower fields, and beaches to bring together something that hopefully feels like an effervescent sartorial experience.
Sit back, relax, and come with me as I share my Spring 2014 Lookbook through the natural beauty of Malibu!

Hey guys! Today I wanted to share a helpful tip video on dressing for petites. I've mentioned in the past how short I am (around 4'11") so I've gotten a ton of you asking where I get my clothes and how to get things to fit properly, especially since doing lookbook videos.
Since I never got a chance to delve into the topic in video before, I thought this would be a great opportunity to share a couple shorts I filmed with my friend Evelina (5'2") centered around petite fashion and what to look out for in both professional workwear and everyday casual-wear!
Check out the two videos after the jump!

Today's Manicure Monday was chosen as a tribute to my recently (Sunday evening) departed betta, Tink, who had the loveliest red-and-translucent-white fin coloring.
I know that in traditional Eastern cultures red is the color of fortune & luck. Because I got Tink immediately after leaving my day job behind to take the huge leap of faith in following my own dreams, in many ways he is that "lucky charm" for me. He even made it cross-country to our move out to LA, faithfully swimming through the 26 hour drive. For being so much more than a fish and being with me every step of the way for years, this lucky red OPI Red Hot Rio Mani Monday's for you Tink! RIP little guy!

Hey guys! Today I wanted to share with you a simple tutorial for the easiest milkmaid braids ever. The best part about this look is that it doesn't take any fancy french braiding skills or the ability to contort your hands into crazy positions or have eyes in the back of your head, which was always my issue. I mean, not all of us are blessed with the gift of 4 arms and eyes, am I right?
Check out the simple boho-chic look below!

Hey guys! Today I wanted to share with you a review on a blush that I've been rather smitten with lately. Hourglass, who is known especially for their fabulously glowing setting powders, came out with a line of corresponding Ambient Lighting Blushes which have the same finely milled texture and glowing appearance. Obviously this was going to be a huge cult hit from the get-go.
Um, can we just take a moment to appreciate the sexy gold marbling? Ahhh....

Hey guys! Today I wanted to share with you this punchy cobalt blue that is the counterpart of Urban Decay's spring nail polish offering that I previously reviewed. Taking a departure from the pastels I've been so into lately, I wanted to switch things up with an edgy polish and Chaos seemed like the perfect fit!

Today's review is of an extremely popular eyeshadow palette that has been receiving a ton of buzz: Too Faced's Chocolate Bar Palette. There are few things in life I can think of that have a stronger visceral connection than women and chocolate, so it makes serious marketing sense to have a palette that literally wafts the stuff up to your nostrils as soon as you open it. I'm not kidding, I had to steal this from my husband because I would find him sniffing it with eyes glazed over.
Without further ado, I present to you the most delicious makeup in my collection:

Hello dear readers! It has come to my attention that a certain family pet may have kidnapped my Youtube channel yesterday. I first off wanted to apologize on behalf of Oreo who says he is very sorry for uploading the following video onto the From Head To Toe Youtube Channel.
Oreo has received limited Justin Beaver play time and relegation to sleeping in the kennel again as penalty.
He would've typed this post himself but he has trouble typing without spell-check due to the whole paw situation. Unfortunately his on-camera charisma doesn't translate quite as well into blogging.
We will be back to regularly scheduled beauty programming in a couple days. As always, thank you for your support and understanding!
If you'd like to keep updated with Oreo's misbehavior, feel free to follow him on Instagram @OreoChi
Readers, what did you think of Oreo's takeover? Did you get fooled or play an April Fool's Day joke this year? Let me know in the comments!
