Elegant, Romantic Updo Styles.

I love wedding events. This is the time where every woman will try to look their best. Some prefer to wear their pretty LBD; some prefer elegant evening gowns. I guess it depends on the cultures and individual preferences. For Persian and Armenian weddings, looking your absolute best is A MUST! Long beaded evening dresses, glittery shoes, elegant updos and top notch makeup ...are pretty much normal. For men, shiny suit is a must. Besides, it matches the elegant, beautiful event. :) I love dressing up and I really don't mind going through the hassle of finding the right dress, or getting my hair and makeup done. Of course it will cost me a lot of money, but that's OK :). It's a celebration after all, why not looking pretty. :)  So, my boyfriend's cousin is getting married this Saturday, which means I need to get my hair and makeup done. I have booked this girl from a local salon in Studio City (Glendale salons are fully booked! 300 guests I can only imagine...) to do my hair & makeup and I just hope she's good because I have never used her service before. *Fingers crossed*. She charges $250 for both, which is not bad at all. After emailing back and forth with her, I finally sent these following pictures:

PS: These updos have always been my favorite:

The thing is.... I like every style!!! I still don't know which one I want one. Ha!Ha! I am thinking of getting Nicole Ritchie's bohemian updo. It's always been my favorite. What do you think? Which one is your favorite?

Have You Guys Tried Remington T Studio Curling Wand?

I am actually wondering how many of you have tried this Remington T Studio Pearl Ceramic Styling Wand, and if you guys loved it or not. I bought one last week after reading great reviews on Target website. I include the link there and if you see the reviews, it actually has 57 five-stars ratings! Amazing!!! That's what I initially thought before I purchased this cute pink wand. Oh yes, the price was $29.99 and I got the big wand so I can create wavy, soft curls. 

Description of the Product:
  • Barrel Size: 1.5", 1"
  • Features: High Heat, Temperature Indicator, 30-Sec. Heat Up, Multiple Heat Settings, Automatic Shut-Off, Swivel Cord, LED Indicator Light
  • Material: Plastic, Ceramic
  • Heat Maximum: 410 degrees
  • Power Source: Electric
  • Includes: Heat Glove
  • Warranty Description: 4 Year Limited Manufacturer Warranty


I seriously don't know if it's me or the product, but I don't think Remington T Studio Styling Wand works for me. I am not that picky when it comes to beauty tools as long as they work fine and give beautiful results. I tried an hour or so to curl my hair with this curling wand, but the curl didn't happen. LOL. Well, I finally gave up, just put a dress on and went to my friend's wedding. Well, to be honest, my hair was quite wavy, but not as wavy/curly as I would have liked. I would love to show you guys pictures of my hair from different angles, but I didn't take a lot of pictures that day. However, I have this one and only picture that shows my wavy hair a bit close up... 

Unfortunately, I didn't really like the result. So I went back to Target yesterday and returned this stuff. I am still looking for that magic curling wand that can transform my hair from blah to wow! If you have any suggestion, please let me know!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!



MAC Milan Mode.

I am loving this pink color! I am not sure what collection Milan Mode belongs to ( I was told it was a limited edition?), but I knew I just had to have it. What do you guys think? :)


Snow White and The Huntsman 2012. It's gonna amazing!!

Are you guys excited for the movie? Because I am! Charlize Theron looks good as the Evil Queen. Kristin Stewart? She's pretty and fair, which makes her perfect for the main role! I love epic movies because of their dramatic costumes. :) I can't wait to see the movie!


In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White's beauty and power. The breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale is from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland, producer Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.

Have a great Friday night!!!


Pink Lips are sexy! I finally realized it!

Hello lovelies! Sorry for being M.I.A. I was literally busy with personal matters, and work. But this won't happen again, I promise. I have managed to do a little schedule for myself so I will have time for everything and anything! I hope I didn't miss a lot...but I know I have tons of reading to do. ^_~

Alright...lets get back to blogging! :) I am sure some of you have tried MAC Girl About Town. It's a vibrant fuchsia color that complements any skin tone. I have seen it a lot on celebrities such as Katy Perry and Rihanna, and the color looks beautiful on them. Well, to be honest, at first I thought the color was quite scary. Ha! Ha! I bought it almost 2 months ago, but I let it sit in my drawer because I thought Girl About Town was too bright for me. I was afraid I couldn't pull it off. Then 2 nights ago, I had to attend a friend's birthday party and I wanted to wear something different than my everyday nude color lipstick. So, I finally gave this lipstick a try..... and you know what? I am totally in love with the color!! I think the color is perfect!!! Bright and beautiful! ^_^

MAC Girl About Town

Isn't the color gorgeous?!

 And this is me at a friend's birthday party, with a simple winged-out eyeliner and a Girl About Town on my lips!

Sorry for the Asian V Sign ^_~

Overall, I think MAC Girl About Town is just vibrant, beautiful, and playful. I should have never let it sit in my vanity drawer for months! LOL. I am planning to buy more pink lipsticks after this!
