Too Faced Shadow Insurance

I was first introduced to a great eyeshadow primer that enhances my eyeshadow colors when I was in Vegas last May. The makeup artist at Sephora used it to give me smokey eyes. Too Faced Shadow Insurance is a must have for anyone who loves primers. More info: Too Faced Shadow Insurance -

Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss

I am such a product of marketing. I read about Clinique's Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss on Sephora's blog and had to have it. The Black Honey color is a nice sheer burgundy shade and perfect for my winter skin. More info: Sephora's blog Clinique Gloss -

Nigel's Beauty Emporium

I found a beauty supply store near work and needed some new eyeshadow brushes. Nigel's has a great selection of brushes at all prices. I got a nice wide brush for highlighting and two slanted brushes for deep crease. They both work wonderfully well with my eyeshadows. More info: Nigel's Beauty Emporium -

Fabio's new restaurant

I haven't had a chance to watch Top Chef Las Vegas this season, but I do remember Fabio from Top Chef. He had such a great personality - so spunky. His new restaurant opened up. LA Times claims people are flocking but not for the food. More info: LA Times review -,0,5582075.story

The Habit Burger Grill

My brother and I headed up to LAX yesterday to pick up my mom from vacation. We were so eager to go to our favorite vegetarian Filipino restaurant only to be disappointed it closed down and got replaced by a bbq place. Boo! To counter our disappointment, we cruised down on Sepulveda. We found the Habit Burger Grill. It looked like a popular joint and everyone was coming out with milkshakes. I ordered the charburger w/ fries while my pescatarian bro got the albacore tuna grilled sandwich. Muy bueno! If I'm ever in El Segundo again, I'll visit again. More info: -
