Out Incorporated x Too Faced Cosmetics x Jennifer Chan fashion event

Last month, I was invited by the awesome beauty and fashion expert Jennifer Chan to the Work Out & Glam Out event with Out Incorporated x Too Faced Cosmetics event in Fashion Island. I loved the fashionable fitness clothing that is glam enough to wear to work or working out. Leah, one of the founders of Out Incorpored, was so sweet and friendly too. 

I was gifted the Femme Fatal Escaped body/swimsuit and have worn it on my recent Las Vegas trip at Drai's Beach Club.

Too Faced Cosmetics even gave me a makeup refresh with a nice pastel pink lip too. I was excited to check out their new make up collection and can't wait to try their  Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer.

Thank you again Out Incorporated for the lovely bodysuit, Too  Faced Cosmetics for the makeup refresh and gift and Jennifer for being such a great host!

Shoe crush

Today's show crush is the new Altuzarra for Target over the knee boots. If only I were tall, I would rock these boots with some skinny jeans and a button up white top. Instant outfit! What do you think? Did you get anything from Target's latest designer collaboration?

Double cleansing

Have you heard of a beauty technique called double cleansing? You basically wash first with an oil cleanser and follow up with a regular cleanser to get all the oil, pollution, makeup and grime out.

I first found out about this method while getting a facial at Paul Mitchell The Skin Academy in Costa Mesa years ago. The skin therapists used Precleanse and Special Cleansing Gel from Dermalogica to get my skin squeaky clean.

I recently tried Tatcha's skincare line with the same concept while vacationing in Maui last spring. I used One Step Cameela Cleansing Oil and Rice Enzyme Powder. I loved that the rice enzyme powder was great for my hyperpigmentation.

Currently, my routine is using Shu Uemera Anti/Oxi skin refining cleansing oil that my hubby purchased in Japan. I then follow with a great foaming cleanser I discovered while I was in Montreal and I lost my luggage. The local pharmacy recommended Purety Thermale Purifying Foaming Water by Vichy. Luckily, you can get Vichy at my lo…

Burt's Bees brightening even tone moisturizing cream

I was at my sister in law's house over the summer for swimming and forgot my moisturizer. I saw this moisturizer from Burt's Bees on her makeup counter. I was surprised my sensitive skin liked it. It was non greasy and absorbed right away. I have been using it for a few days after purchasing it and loving how smooth my skin is. Definitely check it out if you're looking for a moisturizer. 

Giorgio Armani cosmetics

I recently got a makeover at the Armani counter at Bloomingdale's. I purchased my Luminous Silk number 8. It's sheer but covers well. 
I asked the makeup artist to do a fall look so she used blush with a eyeshadow brush on my lids for a washed out color. She did a light pink on my cheeks and coral color gloss. I love the look. It feels so fresh and clean.

Oo-Kook Korean Bbq

I think it was my first time eating in Koreatown. Last weekend, we celebrated my parent's 40th wedding anniversary  by taking them to the church they got married and treating them to Korean BBQ. We got a recommendation from someone for Oo-Kook Korean BBQ so checked it out.

The all you can eat price is $27/person and includes side dishes and choices of up to 30 items from tofu soup, rice, pork belly, baby octopus, shrimp, brisket, and many others I can't remember. The service is great and refilled our side dishes often and brought back new orders too.

Gluttony with family is the best.

OOTD - bunny kiss

If you are ever in Newport Beach, you have to check out the Newport Beach library. It's gorgeous. The building and grounds are beautiful. I've borrowed books and Nook there too. Outside the library, you'll find bunny statues everywhere. I thought it would be a perfect spot for an outfit photos.

Urth Caffee

I have always wanted to try Urth Caffee after seeing blogger friends and reading about celebrities eating here. I thought it was the perfect place for a brunch meeting to meet a new fashion designer for a Serene Sky Boutique meeting. Check out our feast! On the table, you'll see a belgium waffle, spinach mushroom quiche, poached eggs, salmon plate, green tea lattes,  and hazelnut cake.  Everything was delicious! It's definitely worth going if you're in LA.
