OOTD: Last Day of School and Lunch Date in Chinatown

Today was another hot day, so I wore a dress. I don’t have many summer dresses, and of the ones I do have, they don’t get much use. I’m trying to change that, so I’ll probably be wearing them more frequently.

After my physics final, my friends and I drove to Star Snow Ice and ate lunch there. I got the chicken teriyaki, which has pretty large. I also got a regular milk tea without tapioca. I’ve had better milk tea, at Lollicup, when it was still in business, but it wasn’t too bad. In general, the food wasn’t too bad; it was dirt cheap, like $6.oo!

OOTD: Vintage Florals

Yesterday, my friends and I went to see Iron Man 3. When went to the Palladium, which is theatre that was recently built. It’s not a typical movie theatre- it’s Greek and they sell gyros there. They also have a small bowling alley and multiple gelato machines with a dessert counter thing. It’s huge. Even the bathrooms are nice. They remind me of bathrooms at a nice hotel and they have INDIVIDUAL hand sanitizer dispensers in each stall! They also have something called D-Box. Tbh, I don’t really understand what it is, I just know it’s expensive- $18.50 a ticket! We didn’t go bowling or try any of the food, but the movie itself was surprisingly cheap. It was $7.50 for 3D.

Anyways, even though I didn’t have school, I woke up super early. That meant I had a lot of time on my hands and just decided to dress up. I actually hate wearing pants, so I ended up wearing a dress that day.

Kris Bistro Experience and OOTD: Mother’s Day 2013

Every year for Mother’s Day, my family along with my aunt’s family go out to a nicer place for brunch. Before, we’ve gone to the Omni and other like places, but this year we tried something a little different. This year, we went to Kris Bistro. I’ve never been before and I thought the concept of it was pretty cool. So in case you don’t know, Kris Bistro is a restaurant and a culinary school. The culinary students are the ones preparing the food, which I guess is supposed to be like French cuisine.

It’s actually pretty funny, the outside of the building is kinda shady, but the inside is nice. The way that the restaurant was set up for today was that they provided a preset menu. They then had the dishes placed at different “stations.” Besides that, they also had a la carte omelettes and mac and cheese and chicken tenders for kids. I took pictures of everything except the mac and cheese and chicken tenders.

This is something different for my family because we’re not used to the tiny portions. Though they were small, it was surprisingly filling. I enjoyed most of the food, my favorites being the Grilled Hangar Steak, the French Oyster Nacho, and the Créme Brûlée French Toast. Even my mom liked the food, which is saying something since she is the pickiest person known to man.

So now that I’m done talking about the restaurant, I’ll get on to the outfit.

Manicure Monday

For this weeks Manicure Monday, I was inspired by this Gilly Hicks bag.

I tried to create the look by creating the same colors, but it came out awful, so I just took all the polish off. Instead I just decided to do a simple ombre with the colors I already had. This is the finished look!

DSC04856

The products I used were:

DSC04858

A makeup sponge, OPI No Spain No Gain, NYC Fuchsia Shock Creme, and a Love & Beauty polish that came in a trio for Breast Cancer Awareness

DSC04865

Nail polish remover, a Q-tip, and a synthetic makeup brush (optional).

All I did was paint a stripe of each polish on the sponge and dabbed it on my nails. 

DSC04859

The colors go lightest to darkest and I dabbed the darkest color to the base of my nail.

I made sure that my stripes overlapped a little so it would create a more natural transition. Also, make sure that your sponge is flat, not smashed together like mine. I took this picture after I did my nails, so my sponge is all messed up because I tried to clean it. If anyone has any tips for cleaning nail polish off of makeup sponges, please let me know!

Obviously, this is bound to get messy, so I cleaned the sides of my fingers with nail polish remover with my My Glam concealer brush. After that, I also used the Q-tip to get rid of any polish that was more stubborn. To clean my makeup brush, I took a paper towel and folded it a couple of times. Then I poured some nail polish remover in to it and brushed it back and forth on the towel.

So that’s all for this week’s Manicure Monday, sorry it was late! I hope you enjoyed this post!
