L'oreal Everpure Volume Shampoo & Conditioner

Image
I've been coloring and highlighting my hair for several years now and always look for color safe haircare. I recently tried the L'oreal Everpure Volume Shampoo and Conditioner.  I love that it's sulfate free, paraben free and vegan.

I immediately loved the lotus flower scent and luxurious lather while washing my hair. My hair felt moisturized and super clean too. After the shower, my hair felt vibrant and bouncy.  I definitely recommend this new hair line.

If you follow me on Snapchat and IG Stories, you know I am obsessed with lipsticks and feature my lipstick of the day. 
I was so excited to receive Marc Jacobs’ new Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme in Yours To Try (light buff) and Poutliner Longer Lip Liner Pencil in Nude(Ist). 
I love switching from a bold to neutral lip colors depending on my mood. 
I love that this new Lip Creme is full good coverage and ultra hydrating. I’m always forget to touch up my lips and love that this lip color is long lasting.  An added plus is how my lips look plump. Hashtag Angelina Lips! 
Definitely try this new Lip Cremes by Marc Jacobs Beauty at Sephora!

Bluegold / LSXO

Image
A few weeks ago, I attended the Bluegold / LSXO Open House at Pacific City Huntington Beach CEO Jed Sanford and Chef/COO Tin Vuong of Blackhouse Hospitality debuted their flagship OC-based destination Blue gold in addition to their restaurant within a restaurant LSXO .

Bluegold's name is inspired by the point where sunset hits the ocean on the horizon and is based on farm to table concept. The New American menu is rooted in European/Mediterranean roots with hot and cold seafood. (Loved the oyster shooters , by the way!)  LSXO's menu is inspired by Southern Vietnam and Chinese influences. Their lunch and menu feature Foie Gras and Pho Spiced Pxtail torchon to Roasted Squab Salad.

The interior decor is stunning with a dining room overlooking Huntington Beach from the second floor of Pacific City. You can dine at the dining room, lively bar, or kitchen to view all the action from the kitchen. I loved the ironwork featured throughout the restaurant.

Sharing my favorite goodies from the Influenster #FlawlessVoxBox. 
Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes - I have to admit I didn't really see the hype of facial wipes when I double cleanse already, but on one getaway trip, I tried cleansing with these facial wipes and continuing with my double cleansing, my skin was definitely much cleaner and felt fresh. I'm now a believer!Covergirl So Lashy Mascara - I have long lashes and always love looking for mascaras for volume. This new Covergirl mascara definitely delivers if you're looking for voluminous and bold mascara. Dr. Teals Pure Epsom Salt Soaking Solution - Like you, it's always hard to balance work and life. I loved trying this Dr. Teals Epsom salt solution . It's a perfect way to relax for bath and perfect for sore and tired muscles. Yogi Tea Skin Detox tea - This fall and winter, I've been getting into tea.

Newport Beach Wine and Food Festival

Image
Last month, I had the pleasure of going to the Newport Beach Wine and Food Festival with fellow blogger babe Kimberly Luu of According To Kimberly.

It was my first time covering the Newport Beach Wine and Food Festival . I was really excited to try local Orange County restaurants and sample wine from winemakers around the world.

My favorite restaurant to try was Vaca, favorite dessert was Sweet Lady Jane, and favorite wine from Gamble Family Vineyards.

(Editor's Note: Many thanks to Newport Beach Festival for allowing us to cover this year's fantastic event and Kimberly Luu.)

There were tastings from over 200 boutique, cult and renowned wines.
