Weekend Update + Partly Cloudy

Happy Tuesday! How was your guys' weekends?

HOLLERATIONS! On Friday I received the amazing Stila Indian Summer 24 Gold Collection package from Carlene for winning her It's Heavenly giveaway!!
ryan made fun of me when he saw that i took a picture of myself holding a fed-ex box, but i was excited!
I'm a terrible person and haven't taken pictures of a look with the products yet. I want to make sure the post is perfect, and with the color combos, I'm trying to figure out a great look. Stay tuned!

Speaking of HOLLERATIONS, Kym was so kind to award me the Adorable Blog award. Thanks for the love my dear!

Whoa, check out how cool the sky looked Friday night:

these photos were taken at 9pm!

Saturday was my step-sister's graduation party; she graduated from Cal State Fullerton in Civil Engineering, she's all grownz up now!

people always think i look like my mom...until they see my dad. haha.
ryan actually coordinated with my hot-pink, strapless F21 dress
Are you fans of strapless dresses that have a built-in bra? I wore one for the first time, and I must say that while convenient, it kept making a run for it, and also makes my boobs look weird. Is that just me?

Sunday was my first time babysitting Ryan's god-daughter, Lydia, all by myself and I must say, it was a handful. Ryan said, "It's great practice." I said, "It's great prevention." Just kidding. She's 15-months old and quite a handful, but an extremely happy baby, so it was easy.

It's still incredibly cloudy in LA, with a chance of thunderstorms. That's June Gloom for ya...so while my summery outfits are on hold, it gave me a chance to whip out the comfy greys:
hollister sweater, f21 undershirt, citizens of humanity jeans, my new roommate's couch. lol
Over-sized sweaters are the best right? I have a habit of pulling the sleeves over my hands, I have no idea why.
To match my grey / gray (freakin' spelling), I coordinated (aka: directly matched) with grey & maroon eyeshadow:

For this look, I used the maroon in the center of my eyes, and the grey on the inner & outer corner. I also hooked the two corners above the maroon for a seamless look. Lightly blend, line, & mascara!
