Back from Orlando!

I hope you don't think I forgot about all of you lovely ladies (and gentlemen?)...I have not! And SHAME to you all for thinking that way! The truth is, I was in Orlando, Florida this past week, and due to annoying circumstances, the internet in the hotel was too lazy to allow me to blog! Allow me to sum up my trip in touristy pictures, because reading is overrated:
the view from my hotel elevator lobby, the amway arena

railroad tracks (they have them in orlando?!) // thorton park view of some buildings
the #1 benefit of blogging - having the innate ability to take "candid" pictures of myself! haha.
bought this dwight howard jersey for rye bread // the superman cape is hilarious.

one day, when i grow up, i'll be just as big as dwight howard!
oh self-timer, how you are my new best friend

And because I wanted to at least post something about make-up or fashion:
A few tips on how do you your make-up while wearing glasses (perfect for traveling and sleeping on planes):
_Do make sure to conceal any dark circles under your eyes with a salmon concealer (I use Sephora Brand Concealer Palette, the lilac color)
_Do emphasize the arch in your brows (try to angle your brows, if it's natural)
_Do use a loose powder, especially on your nose bridge (where it can get kinda sweaty)
_Don't bother emphasizing your upper eyelids too much, as they're usually covered by your glasses anyway. I just swept a dark brown over my lids, lined them, curled my eyelashes, and lightly mascara'ed
_Do emphasize your lower lids by lining the entire eye, but especially concentrating on the outer corners.
_Do mascara your bottom lashes for bigger eyes
_Optional: line your lower waterline with a white pencil for brighter eyes
_Do put on your glasses before applying blush - it helps you figure out where you should naturally sweep the color (I suck in my cheeks and apply it there)
Our regularly-scheduled program will return tomorrow! Thanks for your patience & dedication my loves.

P.S. I finished the entire Twilight series...now I wish I was a vampire. And I also started calling my dog Jacob. Ugh, I'm so lame!
