Another PC* Weekend & Small Haul (PICTURE HEAVY)

Hi Ladies!
Hope you all had a good weekend! Once again, Shellie and I went to South Coast after I was all hungover and throwing up from the night before. Too much HENNEY, but I REFUSE to learn my lesson. :D We went to Mac Pro Store and I was just intending to buy MAC SLIMSHINE LIPPIE in the color BARE, but the MUA tried on lip colors, gloss, and an eyeliner called "TEDDY" (kohl) outta their permanent line on SeaShell, it was applied with a 219 smudger pencil brush, and we both fell in love! Sweet ol' Shellie snatched me one...she's so sneaky! THANKS, BABES! You spoil your secretary rotten :D but here are a pictures of the products...


The Kohl Liner in "TEDDY"


A very large swatch of it, it's a brown, bronzy, with gold shimmer color...GREAT for a neutral look and a little bit smudged out for a smokey effect :D GORGEOUSSS!!!


Mac SlimShine Lipstick in "BARE"


Swatch of the color, it's kind of sheer, but that is the point of it, I LOVE THIS COLOR! Slimshines are sooooo moisturizing and the colors are sooo cute, plus the sleek, thin packaging of the lippie cover is so chic!


The colors on my lip with flsh. I will definitely be purchasing more SlimShines in the future...lots of HOT colors to choose from



After that visit, Shell and I are already planning what we need the next trip...I definitely need the MAC 219 pencil brush in my life...


Of course Friday night we had to have GNO...I seriously don't think I'd survive a week without seeing my gfs...To party, hang out, bitch and moan about our lives, have a couple of drinks and laugh til' our stomachs hurt. We went to HEAT...and boy...there are a lotta pictures I cannot post, just the ones where we all look put together still...lol Half the girls were missing! :( There are rarely times when all nine of us go out at once...If you bitches are reading this, you better come out next time! :) ahems* LeKlum, Weenie, Deekai, & Jennay! lol love you* The people that have partied with us will tell you that you cannot say NO to PREDRINKING when around us, we will literally open your mouth and pour it down your thoarts! o:) By the time you get to the club you'll be buzzed and then we finish you off with "secret drinks" there! evil laughs* This part is pictureeeee heavy, but seriously, which of my blog posts are not picture heavy?!?!



Henney (check), Coke (check), Moolah (check), and hotttttt bartender CHECK, CHECK!


Love my other CF, Tiffie, she is UNDERCOVER alkie/bad, baddddd girl ;) if you're reading this tiff...tsk tsk *gives tiff the finger*

After the club we always eat! PHOOOOO!

As if that wasn't enough partying, the next day we went to bar called Hashigo, yummmy happy hours sake and appetizers and after lounging, talking, and eating, we went to Taqueria to top it off with some street tacos. I didn't get to snap pics of the street tacos, but here was the prettttty Sake bottle. :)


COLD SAKE!! yummmm


Can always count on Shellie to pour the drinks


Bestie doesn't like this picture cause' she doesn't have make up, but I think she's pretty as is





LEKLUM the milf! Couldn't make it to Heat, so made up for it


YOU ARE SO DIEU, Weenie McWeener, but I love YOU!


Bubsie surprised me with a WHITEEEEE iphone that I have been wanting...he said it's a late anniversary gift, but I thought I already got so many gifts from him already? THANKS SO MUCH, BUBSIE! He also got me something I AM SO EXCITED to receive!! I will have to thumb my fingers and wait patiently for it...


isn't it cute?!?! something else HK to add to my collection...there were many cute Swarovski crystals ones, but they were all 150+ and I figured at my rate it'll be ruined in a few months so I settled for this one

Wow, that post was obnoxiously long, hope I didn't bore you, all. I tend to type too much, but if you get bored just browse the pictures. Hope you all had a good weekend, too! Til' the next time LOVELOVE



XOXO,
Giang


P.S. I LOVE YOU, Kimmie! HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER. I got your back!! & I believe in you! :D

THIS LITTLE PIGGY WENT TO MARKET...literally


Hi Loves!!

So...I have been meaning to go hunt down NEW polishes for a while after reading and seeing all the nail swatches. It gave me an itch! And usually girls go to SKYLARK (a well known place in OC) to get their OPIs/ChinaGlaze/Essie for half the price, however, after going to Skylark I was veryyyyyy disappointed because their stock is NOT up to date and the color choices are veryyy limited. I then remembered that a few years back I went to this place called "IMPERIAL BEAUTY SUPPLY" with my mommy and decided to drop by and see what they have. THEY ARE SOOOOOOOO AMAZING. The shop is literally 1/4 the size of Skylark, but they carry CHINA GLAZEs, ESSIEs, PIGGIEs, ORLYs, PRECISIONs, and best of all OPIs!!!!! And get this the polishes are all literally 70% off! I snagged up the new OPIs suede and mattte shades and left the place with seven polishes and only paid 23 buckeroos!! Yes, I wasn't stuttering...23 bucks! I know how OPIs/ChinaGlaze/Essie are all pretty pricey for polishes so if you are in the area you have to stop by and STOCK UP. The owner is such a nice man and he said that his store is certified to sell brand names that is why he is always fully stocked with the newest polishes and the staple products. :D I told him I was going to tell allllll the girls about this! TA DA!!



THE PLACE!



China Glaze, Essie, OPis...and this is only the first side of the store...All the new stuff is left on the front counter on racks...



WHERE TO GO?!
Imperial Beauty Supply

9411 Bolsa Ave, Suite A

Westminster, CA 92683

(714) 775-7848


Of course I had to swatch em' right away when I got home. I picked up seven, but four were for my fellow nail polish/make up addict, Shellie :D Here are the colors that I got...



WITH FLASH! L to R: You Don't Know Jaques (you don't know jack shit? lol), Lincoln Park after Dark, Lincoln Park after Dark, China Glaze: Spontaneous n repeat!!! The left four are for Shellie and the right three are for myself




WITHOUT FLASH! The first two are suede texture and Lincoln Park after Dark is Matte texture


Excuse the JENKY ass nails in the following pictures, I just swatched them on real quick so I can take shots of them. On the suede and matte nails I put on Sally Hansen Mega Shine top coat for half of the nail to show the difference in the textures. It is pretty versatile because you can choose to stick to the original texture or add top coat to anything and it'll become a regular shiny finish. Someone who thought of this is GENIUS. :D



Top to Bottom: You Don't Know Jaques (suede), Lincoln Park After Dark (suede), Spontaneous, and Lincoln Park after Dark (matte) and again please excuse the messy nails :)



WITH FLASH! SO HOT!! you can literally get six looks outta three bottles

So I have been looking for a liquid liner to do some serious pin up look because Mac's Black Track just doesn't cut it for me when it comes to wing lining so I picked up L'oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Liner with a FELT TIP!! I always see fafinettex3 using it on her make up looks on youtube so I figured since I was at Rite Aid looking for Liquor, I snooped into the makeup section. Lo and Behold I love it!!!!



The sleek container, it's in CARBON BLACK



The SOFT felt tip...It moves around like a wand so it's not stiff and easy to work with



The swatch after ONE swipe!


And as everyone that knows me, knowwws, that I have to get a pedi every two to three weeks. Especially my boyfriend because most of the time he pays for it. It's important to have your toes and nails maintained because it shows you care about yourself. I always paint my own fingernails (other than special ocassions) and my toes are ALWAYS frenched tip. I have tried to use solid colors, but I always get bored. I go to PHUONG and she is MY SAVIOR! I love her! Before her it was always this other lady Nancy, but she is too far so now for the past 6 months Phuong has helped me. She is sooooo sweet and always has stories to tell me. She gave me face creame the other day when I went to go see her. She takes her time and does a GREAT job! I wish I took before pictures, but this is her work of art...



WITHOUT FLASH!



WITH FLASH!

WHERE TO FIND PHUONG?!
NAIL CORNER

EDIT: phuong has now moved and i am going to a new place now..it's called oasis nail salon and it's fabbbb...i will update on a later blog. :)

I hope you ladies enjoyed this post! I know there was a lottta fingers and toes actions in it, but what girl doesn't like varnishes?!!? I know I talk with a lotta *!* exclamations, but seriously, that is how I talk in real life. I exclaim every other sentence. Everything is so exciting to me. LMAO. Ok, have a wonderfulllll weekend whether you're sitting at home watching TV, shopping, or having a night on the town...ENJOY yourselves!!!! Be safe and always have a DD (not drunk driver...hahaha party crew, inside joke) LOVELOVE!


XOXO,
Giang

FAVORITE NAIL POLISHES AT THE MOMENT!

Hey Beauties!!
How are you all?! I hope everyone is doing well! I try to blog at least once a week so here it goes! This is just a short blog entry showing the nail polish stash and some of my favorite colors for fall that I've had since last year, but wish to rekindle the love with :D I highly recommend these colors, they're dark, hot and great for this COLD weather. I am going to go n/p shopping tomorrow to hunt down some more OPIs and matte shades. Today is my boyfriend's and my THREE YEARS ANNIVERSARY! We are stronger and more in love then ever! He didn't get me a gift this year, but just put money into my bank account so I can shop and buy myself nice things. THANKS, BUBBA! I LOVEEEE YOU!! little kiss, big hugs* I recorded my make up stash video, but I feel like an idiot watching it over, but I'll get over that and post it up eventually. :) Here are the colors and if you guys want I'll do swatches later...

I went to South Coast mall in Costa Mesa with my best friend and CF this weekend to hunt down SMOKE & DIAMONDS...it's such a nice charcoal, grey...and it's Limited Edition. The Starflash line that it comes in has other colors and the formulation is SILKY and SOFT...it's amazing! Thank god the RE-RELEASED it from last year's release of it. It is AMAZING! Get your hands on em' now! Also, Glamour-Check! is another pretttty cranberry, brown color! My girlfriends got those. I went to the MAC PRO store first, but they didn't have anymore of this so we went to Macy's and THEY HAD IT!!! Whoo-hoo! It's a popular color! I am in love with it, I used it right away that night to go out. :) I used my Benefit's cream eyeshadow as a base for it and it brought out the true color and looked really good! TWO THUMBS UP!


The picture does not do it justice, flash washed it out and without flash it looks dark like this...I need natural lighting during the day for it to look good :/


So yesterday we had to have our weekly day of partying, drinking and girl bonding time. We went shopping and by coincidence, we all ended up wearing the same colored tops! We always have to have a new fit when going anywhere...and we always seem to match...what the hell LOL I LOVE my PARTY CREW!!! We went to a chill BBQ where we ate and drank... We switched in some Black Label instead of Hennessey, but it made me miss Henney...however, I did get a colddddd shot of Henney :D Here are some pictures from the BBQ


Meet Party Crew President/ my CF and myself (Party Crew PR/Photographer) We are SMALL, but we can DRINK.

That was all...til' the next time, when I post my lame Video Stash Entry, take good care, loves. Make sure you tell someone you love them, give everyone you love a hug and remember that if you are having a bad day one day, sleep it off and start over again the next day. :D Always remember to smile and never let ANYONE say or do anything to bring you down. Have a great week! Here is quote I read today that made me smile..."May your heart be light. May friends hug you tight. May your day be delicious from morning till night." (source: YOUQUOTEDQUOTES) on twitter. :D LOVE LOVE



XOXO,
Giang
