A Trip To Sugarpill HQ

28 Mar

This past week, I scooted up to San Francisco to help out at Sugarpill Cosmetics headquarters as they begin revving up for IMATS (The big makeup convention in June!!! 3 MONTHS AWAY!! WEE!) and fulfilling their ever growing orders! While most days were filled with being busy inevitable having our clothes covered in makeup, we managed to tear ourselves away to have some tasty snacks and meet up with friends 🙂

For the most part, I dressed like a hobo and didn’t bother with makeup that week, but on Saturday, we knew we had plans to meet up  with Tess, so I made some effort into dressing up a bit…!

For outfit breakdown, you can click the picture to go to my Lookbook site 🙂

On Saturday, Amy, Yume, and I took a break from work and met up with Tess for dinner at Fenton’s! I was the only one who had never been there before, so I was pretty amped to get a gigantic sundae like the one they have in Up (which Fenton’s was featured in at the end of the movie!).

Look! It's Doug!

I refused to order any real food, and just went for the “Fenton’s Special” sundae. Amy was disgusted when I asked, “So, if the sundae has a brownie it, it counts as dinner, right?” THAT’S HOW I ROLL.

Behold. The Fenton's Special.

About 15 minutes in, I started getting a case of the "wobbly eyes." That feeling when you're so full, it feels like the food is pushing behind your eyeballs and makes everything look sillier than usual.

Everyone else was more level headed than I, ordering a normal dinner, then adding on cute little sundaes at the end 🙂

Amy's super chocolate chocolate sundae with nuts! She looks very engrossed in devouring her ice cream...!

Tess' almond ice cream, with an extra banana and chocolate syrup, so fancy! True Mee got the pure almond ice cream minus the banana and chocolate. Super yummy!

Later that night we picked up Tess’ boyfriend, Nate, and fought the urge to stay indoors and watch cat videos (On animal Planet! It’s a real show! Crazy!) and ventured outside in the  crazy rainy weather to nip out to an Irish pub for a bit.

Amy, True Mee, Nate, and Tess ❤

This past Sunday, Amy had True Mee and I dress up in her Etsy clothes so she could take photos to upload to her site. I decided to make some more effort with my makeup this day and came up with this! All eye makeup listed is available at Sugarpill’s online shop!

*Black brows and dusting on liner: Bullet Proof
*Shimmery Black: Stella
*Matte Purple: Poison Plum
*Shimmery Purple: Hysteric
*Matte white: Tako
Lashes: "Stormy"

Lips: "Anime" by OCC Liptars

It was really fun trying out a new look with my eyemakeup for once 🙂 I usually tend to get stuck in ruts and wear the same style of makeup over and over but I’m doing my best to experiment!

Later that night, we had a nice dinner at a sushi joint nearby. Hooray for sushi and sake! We ate like the little piggies we are.. hehe.

Yum! All the sushi...!!!

The most delicious oyster!

We... totally ordered too much. Oh well!

I felt like a king of the seas! Had a great time helping up at Sugarpill, and know it won’t be my last trip up there, as IMATS is ever more quickly approaching…!

I’m excited and scared! haha… You can see Amy’s official Sugarpill posts from last year’s IMATS here: Day 0, Day 1, Day 2. There are some HILARIOUSLY AWESOME photos of all of us there from last year, sleep deprived and insane, so it’s totally worth the giggle to check out 😉

Till next time!

Bunnies & Bows Costume inspiration post!

4 May

Hope you’re all ready for the epic “Bunnies & Bows”-themed costume contest being held this Saturday at the big opening party at JapanLA!

The categories of judging will be:
Best in Bunny
Best in Bow
Best in BOW! (the grand prize!)

Prizes include gifts from Chubby Bunny and Sugarpill cosmetics! I also hand-made some cute prize ribbons for the winner!

Judging will be done by a special guest judge panel of fashionable friends, and done at 9pm sharp so make sure you’re there on time!

Need some inspiration for the costume contest? No worries!

You can go the “Bunny” route pretty easily by using random objects to make little bunny ears! Or even sculpt your hair into ears!

Slightly askew bunny ears are very cute!

ENORMOUS fabric bunny ears!

You could probably recreate this with a litle bit of fur and a battery operated light..! So cute!
OR you can go with the BOW theme and go super crazy with cute bows in your outfit and hair!

No matter what look you decide to go with, just make sure you have FUN!
We’ll see you Saturday!

The San Francisco Treat! Pt1

22 Sep

I arrived in San Francisco late Tuesday night thanks to the assistance of Stephiee, and hung out with awesome 6%DOKIDOKI staffers and attended their talk show and model casting event at the New People building in San Francisco, as well. The event was very nice, basically a reprise of what the brand did in Los Angeles, in an auditorium setting. The model audition was also done in front of an audience, which was different than what they did in Los Angeles, which comprised of talking about themselves, dancing, and posing for the paparazzi. Insane! I’m glad that the Los Angeles model casting was done privately. I feel like just going to the interview itself is nerve wracking, but doing that stuff up on stage must have been super stressful for those contestants!

After all of the talk show madness, a bunch of us headed to a Korean pub late into the night and bonded ❤

We then hopped over to Shrinkle’s casa for a nice sleep. Thursday morning, we had a nice late start and walked about the ADORABLE city of Oakland <3! I really love how chill this place is, and the delicious brunch! I could get nice and happy and fat here ❤ Thanks sooo much to Shrinkle and Kevin for hosting us while we were putzing around San Francisco for the week! They were very gracious hosts and even provided us with fancy coffee every morning! Btw, I know most people think of Oakland as the crazyscary part of SF, but in  Shrinkle’s neck of the woods, I tell you it was GORGEOUS and hella safe :3 I guess the bad part of Oakland is somewhere else…!

My fall-like weather outfit of the day

This is Little Brother! he's the friendliest cat of the bunch and has his own little tune 🙂 "Little Brother, duh duh duuuh duh!"

This is Maus. He's a bit grumpy and will randomly attack you, but he's just trying to show you he cares by giving you a little kiss. With his TEETH.

We got brunch at Crepevine, and I had NEW ORLEANS BENEDICT w/ CRAB CAKES! =D NOMnomnom. It was SO delish!

Shrinkle has a BOMB DIGGITY tuna melt!!! LOOK AT THIS THING! I didn't know tuna melts could look DELICIOUS and RAVISHING haha!

After brunch and some messing around on the internet, Caro, Emi & I headed off to the magical world of SAN FRANCISCO again to do a little shopping and do some touristy things! Shrinkle and Kevin had to stay behind to catch up on Sugarpill madness, so we were armed only with the terrible GPS abilities o the iPhone to get us around. (DEATH TO IPHONES!!!) Also, Kevin was kind enough to lend me their camera so I could document the weekend! (I forgot mine at home.. poo.. but their camera is SO MUCH NICER!)

San Francisco was really scenic and pretty! DAMN YOU! A nice shot from the Bay Bridge!

We stopped by the 6%DOKIDOKI pop up store and visited our buddies! Caro bought a BOATLOAD or merch that she could wear throughout the weekend, and I got a shirt at Black Peace Now, hehe. BPN has always been my vice, and they were having a 60% off sale.. hurr hurr.

The 6% pop up shop in the New People building.

Their cute little hangy stars ❤ I bough the gold one during the Sweet Streets opening!

After poking around there, we went down to Fisherman’s Wharf, the mecca of all that is touristy and tacky in San Francisco. As we approached the hills, we all did a collective “AHHHHH!” SF does not MESS AROUND with the steepness of their roads here! Yeesh!

Of course, Emi and I whipped out our cameras in the car to capture the insanity.

As expected, Fisherman’s Wharf was full of seafood, tourists, and tacky merchandise, and if you know anything about me, you know I LOVE TACKY.


I guess the Sea Lions left for a bit, and then some of them came back? They were pretty cute.. like big kitties!!

Happy Anniversary Sea Lion buddies!

Caro and Emi take advantage of the crazy carousel we encountered. That horse is HALF FISH.

Freshly captured leprechauns.

This crab store amused me the most! lol, it took everything in me to not just BUY ALL THE TACKY STUFF in there!!

WTH is this doing in the crab store? THIS IS SURELY A LOBSTER!

Tres chic.

JK! Emi does it BETTER! HAHAHA I regret notbuying this!!!

Around this point, the infamous San Francisco fog rolled in. IT IS SERIOUS BUSINESS GUYS!

There was a giant macaroni with this sign in front of it. Caro has a polaroid of what happened directly after this, but you can probably guess, right? haha.

Crab-shaped bread

After these shenanigans, we made plans with our buddies to meet up at a thai place somewhere on Union Street for dinner. We got there ridiculously early, so we ducked into American Cupcakes, which was just a block down and looked super cute! Being a trio of cute girls, the staff was pretty chatty with us and even gave us free cupcakes! Whaaat!

Cute little flashing ball lights on the cieling changed color to the rhythmof themusic! At some point they were playing the power rangers theme song!! BADASS!

Adorable candy and plastic toys on display in jars along the back wall!

We saw them roasting their S'mores cupcakes with a blowtorch!! We were screeching and taking photos like crazy people, so they gave us each a s'mores cupcake for free hehe ❤ We love these guys!

After this sugar-rush induced excitement, we headed over to Osha to wait for our friends. Everyone was a little late, so we just hung out in the bar area. This really turned out to be the day of epic free things, as it turned out the Skyy Vodka promoters were there that night also, and were heaping us with free shots, sunglasses, muddlers (they look like tiny baseball bats), and more $1 drink tickets than we could physically drink. It was insane! By the time Shrinkle, Kevin, Bei, Tess, and Trevor showed up, they were like WTF DID YOU GUYS DO? WHY DO YOU HAVE ALL OF THESE DRINK TICKETS? Hahaha.

Tess, Shrinkle, and Kevin (p-p-p-poker faace)

We had 12 drink tickets. NO LIE.

And this is what happens when those tickets turn into actual drinks. Left to right, Trevor aka Saru (works at BTSSB at New People), BeiBadGirl, and Tess, the drinking hero!

So, we had a very liquor-filled dinner. Surprisingly no one really got that drunk or anything after all of that! SURPRISE! We have livers of steel! Well, except for Caro, who doesn’t actually HAVE a liver. Funny story. You should ask her about it sometime!

Because we weren’t really ready to go home yet, we popped into American Cupcakes again for a quick dessert! Saru went crazy and got 4 cupcakes!

So good! Cotton Candy (top left) was my fave!

I ended up getting 2 cupcakes also... nomnomfattyfatfat!

Alright, that’s a pretty epic 1.5 day post! I’ll get to the rest SOON, I PROMISE!
