Iris, my Idol

I really need to pick up the new Iris Apfel book, "Accidental Icon"

I am so excited that Iris just got her own Barbie too! 

When I heard that Iris was all over the window displays at Bergdorf Goodman in March
I knew I had to take the trip up town! 






Shout out to my fashion school friend Holly for taking the trip uptown with me! 


We got to go inside and see the designer inspired collections for sale too!

Ohhhh myyy godddd. 
This is my print mixing heaven, I wish I could live on this floor...










Bergdorf Goodman even had a pair of Iris Apfel's signature round glasses from Alain Milkli! 

Oh you KNOW I had to try those babies on! 

Yes, I love them. 
#wishlist







Look at this amazing pug print!

I had to rewatch the "Iris" documentary on Netflix, 
I loved this quote Iris says about her husband Carl:

Iris inspires me to wear brights, mix colors and textures 
and just have FUN with clothing! 
& ROCK those glasses! 




What I Wore: glasses- c/o Bellinger via 10/10 Optics, lips- Loreal x Balmain "246 Confession", necklace- Hunt & Orchard, top- LuLaRoe via retailer Courtney Skudalski, kimono- k/lab at Kohls, pants- Old Navy, booties- Universal Thread at Target




I wore this outfit to my fashion classes earlier in the day,
where we discussed color theory and I immediately noticed that my outfit 
was the perfect example of complementary colors.
Compared to one of my last outfits that was a great example of analogous colors...

I giggled at this post from amazinraisin on Instagram
I LOVE Eloise the kitty, she is amazingly adorable! 
This picture is two of my favorite things together! 

You already know I am obsessed with all clothing with Iris on it, 
as blogged HERE
but this dress is a whole new level:

Iris is definitely my Idol.

April Humble Beauty Opinion #53

Last Saturday of the month = Humble Beauty Opinion!

I love this pie chart that beautycon shared on Instagram:

 I was excited the month when Influenster reached out to me
 to see if I wanted to try some new Lancome foundation! 

Even more excited when I saw that this Influenster x Lancome VoxBox was FULL of goodies! 

My thoughts so far:
• I like the Lancome "Skin Feels Good" foundation but the shade is too dark, 
maybe in the summer this will be perfection. 
May be a weird point but I like the way this foundation smells. 
•  Renergie Lift Multi-Action Ultra Sunscreen is also nice
• Advanced Genifique concentrate also feels good on the skin
Lancome Prismatic Plump Lip Gloss in "06 Bare Glow"- I LOVE THIS, one of my favorite glosses, I love how it looks on the lips and the formula is great! 

Love the color shift in this Lancome Prismatic Plump Lip Gloss in "06 Bare Glow"

I like the print of this month's Ipsy bag but the products are just okay,
nothing really exciting this month:

 On the other hand, I am pretty excited about this month's Sephora Play,
Already know I enjoy the itCosmetics "Bye Bye Pores" Pressed Powder, 
Excited to try the Make Up For Ever Skin Tint, the Miu Miu perfume is nice, 
and I am loving the Urban Decay Hi-Fi Lipgloss in "SPL" 

Colourpop Cosmetics released new single shadows and I am intrigued, 
I love the ones I already have and these colors are so bright and beautiful! 

With these swatches from dupethat on instagram
I really want that dejaboo color! 

I am also excited that MakeupGeek is now going to be available at Target!!
I love MakeupGeek and I am happy that we can now shop in stores! 

I also want to check out these new eyeliners from Wet n Wild

This Rimmel liner looks so pretty too! 
I have never tried a Rimmel liner, it may be time! 

This glittery lipstick from this sponsored post from gerardcosmetics on Instagram 
looks so beautiful! I want to try it! 
This shade is "Hollywood Blvd":

This deep fuchsia/blue tone Revlon lipstick in Wild Orchid is so perfect for this time of year! 
I am going to have to get this shade!

I think I need to step up my selfie game with this elf "Glow On The Go Selfie Light"

Lots & lots of empties this month, 
including a bunch from our travels in Thailand:
Bangkok empties: Pullman G Hotel Body Lotion (x2) + Shampoo (x2) + Conditioner (x3) + Shower Gel- these products were not so great as far as hotel products go but I used the shampoos to clean all my makeup brushes and it felt so good to clean them and the hotel shampoo worked really well. / Co Bigelow Facial Soap- I liked this, it seemed to be a better quality than the other hotel products offered / Hard Candy Ombre Lipstick in "Practical"- I can't believe that I used this up, I love this lipstick / Crest 3D White tooth paste- perfect for travel, glad we brought a back up! / Colgate wisp mini-brush- I have had these forever, finally used them in Beijing in between flights to Thailand, so helpful and left me feeling a little better about the 24 hour journey / Hang Ten Classic Sport Sunscreen- a nice sunscreen it does smell but not in a classic sunscreen way / Bare Republic Natural Mineral Sunscreen- I liked this sunscreen too and it lasted forever but does leave a little white cast on the skin. / Watson's Ginseng face mask- I was so excited to use some face masks that I hauled on this trip to unwind while in Bangkok, this was a nice one too! 

 Phuket empties: Nexcare "Acne Patch"- I bought this at 7/11 in Bangkok mainly to treat a huge cyst zit that appeared to be making a permeant home on my chin. I used this as a night treatment, not sure it helped but it was an interesting product / Neturogena Cleansing & Makeup Remover Towelette- this does a good job in removing makeup but I had issues with the waterproof mascara that I brought, without using coconut oil like I have been, mascara was continuing to build up on my lashes / bareMinerals Original powder foundation- I like this but I prefer liquid foundation / Soap from the Novotel- pretty basic as far as hotel soap goes / Watson Red Wine face mask- loved this one too, did have a red wine smell which was a little weird /  Pullman G Hotel Body Lotion (x2)- decent but nice to have on vacay  / Tresemme Extra Firm Control- pretty strong hair spray, I prefer more touchable texture but this is one of the only ones I could find in travel size / Mai Tai Spritzer Sea Salt Spray- I giggled to have used this up in Thailand, I liked this product and the way it smells! / Verizon sunblock- I got these from a company party (long story) but these travel size sunscreens are so convenient and pretty decent sunscreens!  

Home empties: 
beauty: Up & Up eye makeup remover- a good Target version makeup remover, gets the job done for the most part / Pur~lisse Blue Lotus eye serum- this lasted forever and I enjoyed it. Not sure I would purchase it though / Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer- I didn't really like this, not enough primer, not moisturizing enough / Cover Fx "Moonlight" drops- I can't believe I used this up but I added it to my foundation to make it less matte and I loved it. Planning on repurposing this container for face oil
/ Bottega Veneta "Knot' perfume- I enjoyed this smell, I like trying out and using up different scents /  elf "warm bronzer"- I have had this for a while, it ended up getting a little hard so I scrapped the rest off into a loose powder container and used it up like that and think I prefer it that way actually / hey honey "trick or treat" cream concealer- I liked this, very creamy and a nice color / soft lips vanilla- this is a throwback, I have had this forever, a classic. 

bath: Dove white soap- a classic product in my household, You and I "Orange & Carrot"- I got this from 7/11 in Thailand, I love the way this smelled and the way it left my skin feeling, wish I stocked up! / Tresemme Mousse- I liked this but I feel like it didn't last, it still feels like there is a lot of product left in there but it won't come out / Loreal "Nutri-Gloss" conditioner- I enjoyed this / Fair Trade Shampoo  for Novotel- I really liked this shampoo, but they didn't provide any conditioner so that was a little weird. I wish they did because this shampoo was nice / Pullman G Hotel Shampoo (x3) + Shower Gel (x3) / Thann Body Wash- this is also from a hotel but the smell of these is amazing, some of my favorites! / Mary Kay "Satin Lips" exfoliator- I ended up using this all over my face and I enjoyed the way it left my skin / Lancome "Miel En Mousse"- I liked this face wash but it was quite gooy and hard to get out of the container but you only need a little bit / Meyer's Clean Day Body Wash- I liked the way this smelled but it this container is SO STIFF, it is impossible to squeeze, I need up using it in baths because I could not get it out in the shower / Honest hand soap- I used this to clean my makeup brushes and beauty blender, it works really well / Aloe Facial Mask from Watsons- so moisturizing and nice / Cucumber mask from natureby from H-Mart- love all of these / Feel Brilliant "Bamboo Charcoal Facial Sheet Mask" (x2)- these are a little intimidating because they are a black face mask but I like the way they feel and make my skin look after / Milk Essence Mask Sheet- from Watson's I loved this one too! So moisturizing / Ole Henriksen "PowerBright" Step 1- I love these products, I would purchase if they weren't so expensive but they are so nice! / wet n wild "Under the Sheets" makeup remover sheets- I love these for the price, they do a nice job at removing my makeup after a long day, have already repurchased / celavi "Aloe Vera"- I get these from H-Mart and I like them a lot, will repurchase when I have the chance / Mahogany Driftwood candle from Walmart- I love this scent, such a great candle for less than $5 / Scentsy "Amazon Rain"- I get mine from my coworker/friend Renee- I loved this scent / Scentsy "Sea Salt and Avocado"- loved this scent too, I love that the samples that I got were in little heart shapes! / Revlon Colorsilk "Deep Burgundy"- a classic hair color for me. I did this one after the Garnier "Dark Intense Indigo" faded / Garnier "Dark Intense Indigo"- a great blue black color, I enjoyed it
