Jet setting off to the islands - Hawaiian Escape!

I am super excited because the other day I booked a last minute ticket to Hawaii! My cousin lives in Oahu and I have been in dire need of a vacation (I don't think I could have lasted another week at work without some kind of break!). I found a deal on and I just went for it and booked it! Since I wouldn't have to pay for a hotel, it didn't end up being that expensive! I am leaving tonight, and I packed my bags this morning so last minute. I am wearing these gypsy harem pants with flowers and prints that my boyfriend's mom brought me from Jordan, with a black tank top and some gold sandals from Forever21. I can't wait for sun, beach, and relaxation! I am planning on spending most of my time at the beach, relaxing by myself, and possibly going to a spa or something!  It is my goal to watch the sun set each night, and I will be taking my Nikon with me, so be ready for some nice photographs!

Urban Decay Perversion mascara

I recently received a small sample of Urban Decay's new mascara, Perversion in my August Ipsy Glambag! I was really excited because there was all this hype about it!
My usually mascara is the DiorShow Blackout mascara! 
I really liked this mascara and it did a good job lengthening and separating my lashes! Almost better than the Dior mascara!
The DiorShow mascara tends to cost your lashes and makes them dark and long, but thus perversion mascara separates each lash! 
Here is a comparison of the brushes from each mascara, DiorShoe Blackout (left) and Perversion (right).  The Urban Decay mascara wand has several bristles that separates and coats!

City Glam Wedding Style

Carolyn from  asked me to style my dream picture this:

A rooftop view of the LA skyline - set up with rows of tables, adorned with intricate center pieces made of roses and another selection of flowers in light pink/white/red selection (in this dream I haven't quite decided the color scheme yet, hah!), the ceremony done and the celebrations starting as the sun is setting...light fixtures with twinkling lights above, and by the small overhead covered section, the whole overhead part is adorned with flowers... and a central dance floor where the DJ is getting ready to introduce the bride and groom...

haha! this is what I'm picturing as my wedding. I hadn't given much thought to it as all other little girls do, and I had constantly been going back and forth with what kind of dress I would choose. For a while, I wanted a poofy princess ball gown with a tight corset detailed lacy top with a sweet heart neckline. But now, I am in love with the sleek dresses with sweet heart neckline. When I took a look at wedding dresses at, I fell in love with the selection of dresses, and I absolutely adored a couple, it was hard to decide which one to pick for the big day, but I went with the one shown below!

Summery Dress

Hey everyone!
I have been meaning to post this outfit since I got it last month but never got around to it since my laptop died!! Here is what I wore to work at the lab today! It was a beautiful day out, and I walked to lab (with flats of course, not the heels pictured) and then I put on long black leggings and sneakers when I got to work. When I went for lunch I just slipped off the leggings and put on my flats again :) pretty versatile outfit I may say :) what do you think? I'm in love with this pattern! its so vibrant and beautiful!
