take me down to Chinatown!

My fashion school friend Holly invited us to celebrate Chinese New Year with her in NYC!

I was so excited to go on this adventure!

Of course I had to wear some red for the occasion! 


What I Wore: glasses- c/o Faniel via 10/10 Optics, lips- Revlon "Romantic", jacket- vintage LLbean, top {under}- thrifted, sweater- Old Navy, pants- Primark, booties- JCrew, bag- vintage


Even went with a red mani for the occasion! 
Red- Nicka K "NY139" & Zoya "24K" 

Our trip to NYC started with some Happy Hour margaritas at Mexicue 
while we waited for Holly to be done with class...


In the subway we got to watch some live music by the Raices Group
the epitome of NYC!


Headed downtown to Canal! 

A blurry but perfect pic 



We had to try these streamer poppers that were everywhere! 
Charlie was so good at it.
I couldn't do mine and needed assistance... 
exciting none the less




We started with amazing desserts at Tai Pan Bakery
highly recommend the pineapple bun with red bean, egg custard and the scallion cake!

& then headed to dinner at Shanghai Asian Manor on Mott Street,
so good! 

On the way back to Penn Station we spotted these Chinese New Year themed windows at Macy's

Holly said that these decorations are wrong
 and they are more for weddings than new year celebrations... 
whoops! Nice try Macy's...

Happy Year of the Dog! 

I am ready, so are the fur babies:

Humble Beauty Opinion :: February Review


This week has all about celebrating beauty, 
and this month started with this Walmart Beauty Box full of products to do just that! 

 This month's Sephora Play was also a pretty good one!
Love the NARS Lipstick in "Let's Go Crazy" although I already have one from a point perk,
 but it is a good color so I don't mind. 
The Laura Mercier "Caviar Stick Eye Color in Rosegold" is really nice
I was sad that the Sephora "Rebel Chic" lipstick arrived broken.

 This month's Ipsy was okay, 
I am excited to try the eva NYC dry shampoo, I really want to try their texture spray,
I don't really need the luna highlighter or the makeup brush so I will pass those along. 
I am really excited about the It Cosmetics "Bye Bye Undereye"! 

Influenster sent me these Dermalogica Ultra Calming Duo VoxBox to try out and I am so excited, 
at first use they are very hydrating, can't wait to use them some more! 

When I saw this Essie polish in "Bluetiful Horizon" from the "Desert Mirage" collection 
on their Instagram, I knew I had to add it to my collection! 
I love the shift in this polish! 

I also purchased the KL Polish "Das Esspensive XXVI"
I was not sure of it at first because I have the last one and this one is not as opaque, 
but I am so happy I did! 
I love it! 
Especially over a light pink polish! 

I was inspired by this "Holiday Lipstick Lineup" that Whatnicolewore posted on Instagram:

So I made my own "Glossary" of all my lipstick shades!
Which turned out to be quite an undertaking...
FYI I do not need another lipstick, ever again. 
Even though I know that is not realistic... 

But at least I did use up some beauty products this month! 
beauty empties: Maybelline Age Rewind in "Brightener" and "Light"- I love these. Had to immediately repurchase the brightener, makes you look awake / Fresh "Sugar Nude Tinted Lip Treatment" sample- this is so nice, now I see what the hype is about, but it is expensive! / Vichy "Mineral 89"- I liked this product / Lancer "Eye Contour Lifting Cream"- I liked this a lot, I got it from the Lancer x Influenster VoxBox to review and all the products were awesome! / Lorac Eyeshadow base- this was okay, I prefer the Urban Decay one, but this one lasted forever! / tarte "tarteist"- this mascara was okay, not my favorite / be a bombshell lip crayon in "Hot Damn"- bought a back up, I love this red! / Rimmel London "Provocalips"- I hate this product, everything I tried to use it, it smells weird, doesn't look good on the lips, it is terrible / Claire's Cosmetics Nail Polish- I love this kind of polish but it dried up / OPI Top Coat- wish this was fast dry but it is nice / Tiffany & Co perfume- I loved this scent but it is a little old lady ish...

Revlon "Deep Burgundy"- one of my favorite hair dyes / CVS "Deep Cleaning Toner"- this was an okay product, did the job / Trader Joe's Coconut Oil- I love this as a makeup remover and moisturizer for my tattoos! / Village Therapy Bath Oil & Body Wash from the Walmart beauty box- I loved these will probably purchase the full size! / Purifying Brightening Peeling Gel- I liked this product from the Walmart beauty box too! / Lancer "The Method: Cleanse" and "The Method: Polish" got both of these from the Influenster Vox Box and loved both! / la bella "Super Shine Serum" & "Vitamin E" I liked both of these from the Walmart beauty box, I will probably purchase the Vitamin E oil when I need a new face oil / Minajesty by Nicki Minaj body wash- I love this scent! / OGX "Thick & full + biotin & collagen"- I liked this but I do think it made my hair too heavy / 10/10 Optics Eyeglass cleaner- love having these to clean my glasses in the morning / Ahava Water Mineral Hand Cream- this was nice and moisturizing / Trader Joe's Coconut Body Butter- love this lotion! Such a good one!  Already have a backup! / Scentsy in "Everything Nice" and "Cashmere Pear"- loved both of these! 

Ending this February Humble Beauty Opinion with this hilarious cartoon
