Conference Fashion with Statement Pieces

Some fun news -- I will be a Meeting Blogger for a conference I will be attending for the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) at the end of March in Boston!
I'm really excited because I will get to blog about the science and fashion! I will be presenting my research in a poster session, as well as attending talks from renowned researchers, networking, and making connections with scientists! Stay tuned for outfit posts from the conference as well as some scientific posts - not sure yet if I will be posting here but more info to come soon!

Here is a professional conference look I styled with some statement pieces -  a plain white tank top with a pretty black pencil style skirt with pleats, a perfect canvas for bright, colorful accessories!

I fell in love with this Sasassi Necklace from the Minu Jewels collection of Boyajian Trend Gallery, as well as a lovely green cocktail ring from their Ona Chan collection! I also included a basic Black Gold bracelet from the Yayoi 'Element One' Collection, also available at the Trend Gallery! It was such a cute, subtle, but still statement piece, and very unique from other bracelets I have seen/own/worn!

Makeup Monday - Winged Liquid Liner Tutorial

Hello loves!
Happy Monday! 
I am just getting over/still having a little cold, but that hasn't stopped me from working like a mad woman, both at work (trying to submit a paper!) and on the blog (some new collaborations in the works!).

Here is a requested Cat Eye Liquid liner look that I seem to have perfected -- practice makes perfect! I use the Maybelline Line Stiletto - It is amazing and so easy to use!

Transition Wear - Lab to Night out

I recently went out for dinner for DineLA week at this AMAZING sushi place called Sugarfish. It was sooo delicious, totally worth the price! I had a pretty busy day in lab so I knew I wouldn't have time to go home to change before the dinner reservation with friends, so I wore an outfit I knew I could easily transition from day to night!

Vice 3 - Tutorial 3 - Goldie Pink!

Welcome to Part 3 of my Vice 3 Tutorial Series! I am obsessed with this palette and how many vibrant looks I can create with it! On this MLK day, I am heading off to lab with a late start (I deserve to sleep in!), I created this vibrant, fun Goldie-Pink look using shades I have used before in my other tutorials, but they all work well together as well! I am surprised how many different looks you can create with this palette! And the colors are so vibrant and bright, it is beautiful! Check out the look and tutorial below!

Blue/Turquoise, White and Fringe - 2015 Style

I have recently been inspired for new 2015 fashion! A friend recently opened up her online shop (Check out my Facebook page for the link! and LIKE my page while you are there please!), and a lot of her pieces were very mediterranean/middle eastern in style and I fell in love! Here are some looks I put together, rather simple and featuring some loud jewelry to make a statement!

Vice 3 - Tutorial 1 - Pinks

Hey guys, here is Tutorial 1 in my series of Vice 3 looks! This is a simple look I created using my new Urban Decay Vice3 Palette featuring Pink shades! I fell in love with this palette from the moment I opened it, the colors are so vibrant and pigmented, they are perfect!

This look is great for a daily look, the pinks are so romantic with just a bit of drama at the outer corner with the darker shade! It also can work as a going out/glam makeup look to add some pizzazz!

Here is the look with the corresponding numbers/shades labeled!

New Years Resolutions

Happy New Year everyone!
I am still trying to recover from the holidays and traveling! I had a pretty relaxing time at home in Boston, but I still feel like I need to recover. My travel back to LA took about 12 hours, because I had flights with connections, and then when I arrived home, my friends threw a New Year's Eve party at my place! It was a blast, full of yummy food and drinks and great company!
I am still trying to catch up on my sleep and I'm battling a sore throat (first time I have gotten sick in a while!), but it is back to work tomorrow!
Here are my resolutions/goals for this year!

My resolution to YOU, my readers, is to try to update at least 2 times a week, bringing you outfit posts, latest fashions, fashion hauls, makeup posts, etc. more frequently! I hope to post guaranteed on Mondays and Thursdays, with an extra post on a random day if I have enough time!

I want to start getting into making youtube videos by doing makeup tutorials or video reviews once a month! I will see how much I can get to this, because I am usually very busy with school and lab, but I put it here to make me accountable! :)
