About Me





Amigas y Maquillaje

Yesterday I went to beauty school, kinda! For a long time I have admired that shimmery look for eye make up so when I heard about a collection called "Coastal Colors" I was completely enamored. The only problem was my lack of knowledge when it comes to makeup application. Luckily my friend Rachael was kind enough to show me the ropes, but I was scared!So I took my good friend Lexie with me and she helped me decipher all the makeup lingo. Trust me, I didn't even know how to hold the applicators properly.
I know that you probably can't tell from this pic but I was really pleased with the results. I prefer the natural look and the colors we picked were very subtle ( I actually was not brave enough for the coastal colors, baby steps right?) and hopefully I will remember how to put the stuff on. A moment of hilarity came when Lexie said "I did not know this about you, how you don't know know about makeup!" It was hysterical, as if it were my dirty little secret ha ha!

Speaking of friends, sweet Gabbi from Felino Felici gave me an award this week.

About the Award
: "These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbon of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

The makeup lesson and award from Gabbi, lifted my spirits yesterday because I was having a tough day. I was struggling with my move from the sealaura estate to the villa. It was a bit emotional for me yesterday, luckily the makeup lesson came at 2:30 pm, so I was able to shift gears and snap out of the melancholy.

Now for my nomination:
Simpledaisy : she is a wonderful jewelry designer who loves the beachy lifestyle.


Beach Vintage:
I just found this lovely blog. I love vintage finds but never had I thought to combine it with the beach! This blog is a treat for the eyes.

Hooray! I know you are supposed to nominate eight, but you know how well I do with rules.. :)

Gabbi said...

Congratulations to the winners! I'm completely with you on the make-up thing. I either do too much or too little, it's rare to get it just right. But your makeup looks lovely, though from what I've seen in your previous posts you don't really need it... you've got a great look going already. xo
