Rimmel Sexy Curves mascara

I am excited to try my new Rimmel mascara. I have heard many good reviews on this product. My dilemna are long straight lashes so definitely need the curl so they don't get in my eye.

Nothing bundt cake

Image
I have been meaning to visit this dessert spot for a while and went last Monday to the Costa Mesa location.

Service and selection was great. I chose the red velvet and lemon. I'm not gonna lie. The cake was good, but a lil' too much in serving size. I think I prefer my cupcake size more. For a dessert to share, I'd recommend this spot.

Missoni at Target

Image
Last Tuesday, Missoni at Target was in the news for all the shortages, crashed websites and long lines. I thought I would be lucky and find the flats I wanted. Nope! I did score this sweet headband though. You like?

Microwave cleaning tip

My friend told me a cool microwave cleaning tip. I never knew you could clean it with vinegar. I got a bowl of water and white vinegar, turned it on to 2.5 minutes, and wiped clean. Voila!

Cupcakes galore

I wish I could tell you I tried these cupcakes, but I can't. These pretty things were being sold for $3 each at my church festival last weekend. Wish I got the name of who made 'em so I could taste test. 'Til we meet again sweets!

Bun rieu

I absolutely love bun rieu. It's a Vietnamese noodle soup with tomato, crab and shrimp. Pure genius! I got this bowl at my
Church Festival for $5 but if you go around Little Saigon In Westminster, you can find this yummy soup too.

Green tea tempura ice cream

Image
I am a sucker for tempura ice cream. Check out this lovely at Oki Doki. Yes, it was as scrumptious as it is pretty. Oki Doki is on Bristol and Paularino in Costa Mesa if you feel like Asian fusion goodness.

Marrakesh Oil

So, I had a hair mishap in July and got my hair curled for my dad's birthday party. The gal did such a poor job and burned my hair. My hair did not smell nice for a few days. Ick! Thank goodness my hairstylist chopped my hair off. Since then, it feels like it's growing thicker and dry.

Luckily, my girlfriend got me Marrakesh Oil. I use it on damp hair and it calms the madness. I love this stuff. It smells so good. Yum! I highly recommend this argan oil.
