Happy Birthday To Me!

On this very day last year, I was starting my morning poolside in the beautiful Costa Mesa, CA with room service ordered and mimosa in hand, to kick off celebrating my birthday. I wouldn’t have changed that amazing weekend for the world nor could I have asked for a better gift (Thanks again Spoon).

Today it’s my birthday and I’m not poolside, but it’s still a very special day. The amount of love I’ve received over from friends and family is a blessing and I am forever grateful. Today was a beautiful, extra humid, but still beautiful. Perhaps next year I will take trip somewhere cool and document it for you guys!!

By the way I’m on ūüĎĽ SNAPCHAT find me¬†@cayfrg

2014 Travel

2014 Travel

I feel like this is the year for so many great things to happen, especially traveling. I know so many people all over the states that I’m planning to visit and there a few places that I just want to visit. So here’s a few things i think are essential to traveling, be it plane, train or automobile. YOU DECIDE!

left to right:
1. Tunes had to be the first thing on this list. I don’t know about you but music just makes everything better. Frends Headphones

2. Now, if you don’t know me I’m a fan of electronics. For those who like to read on trips, or movie watcher, like myself. This gadget would be perfect. It’s small and gets the job done. Apple iPad Mini

3. With all this technology packed you have to grab this guy. The worst is when you battery is about to die or dies right in the middle of something. Purchase and Pack THIS!! Anker USB Charger

4. I don’t know about you all but I’m snacker. I love to find a snack that will hit the spot and taste amazing. This bar is just that. It comes in a variety of flavors. Clif Bar

5. Being well rested is so important. I mean so important that it can change the whole mood of your trip. Get some ZZzzzs!! Eye Mask

6. My feet are always cold. Period. This is PACKED! [at least 3 pair, lol its just me] Socks

7. I hate it when ‘m sleeping so soundly and then I get a pain in my neck of back. I will admit I do not own one of these as of yet, but I will be investing in one. Neck Pillow

8. It can get chilly so make sure you pack a light but warm sweater or cardigan. Monki Sweater

Are you going anywhere this year?

Leather & Metal

Riding Dirty.

Here’s some knowledge, did you know that the oldest leather shoe in the world was founded in Armenia dating back 5,500 years, that’s about 3,500 BC. This cow-hide shoe size euro 37/US 7 was in “perfect condition”. How cool is that?! For more information and a picture of the shoe go to science daily website.

Think leather and I’m immediately flooded with sultry, sexy, rough, and tough images and thoughts. I have major goose bumps right now, as I’m writing this post. Leather is to metal are like peanut butter is to jelly, they just go together, they compliment each other. I’m constantly pulling inspiration from eras and the world around me.

Ideas. Ideas. Ideas.

20130809-104724.jpgMy jacket as a result of the quickest thrifting I’ve ever done. I was in heaven and can’t wait to go back.

I’ve finally scored a some leather, last weekend on an unexpected thrifting excursion in Brooklyn, just in time for the fall. Thanks Spooner! Now I have to come up with a great way to introduce it to the blog, to kick off more styling posts, which I’ve been meaning to do for some time. By the way if anyone know’s of a way that I can clean this jacket, that doesn’t include dry cleaning, I’m all ears.

Side Note: You must wash all thrifted items people!

What’s your equivalent to leather & metal?

Tagged… I’m It

Hi guys! I’ve been tagged. Ode to the nostalgic memories. I loved playing that game as a child, not so freeze tag but that another story for a different day. This tag is all about beauty and me, I took some questions out and added a few, so without further ado.

‚̧ Skincare:
How many times you wash your face daily?
I wash once but I’m starting a whole new regimen next month for that will change (I’ll keep you posted)

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Since puberty I’ve had acne, its changed a bit and I have more clear skin days now, but on the occasion I will have a breakout and that’s when I make sure to be behind the camera, until healed (which isn’t too long)

What skin type do you have?
I had oily skin most of my life and no that I’m old (please people not that old, 20 something), my skin has changed, I’m now in the combination category

What is your current facial wash?
Current face wash is switches between Neutrogena Naturals Face & Body Bar and Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser

Do you exfoliate?
HECK YEAH I DO‚Ķ Its a must. We all have to get rid of the dead skin and using soap alone doesn’t do it. There are three things I do and it changes every time. I will do a Extra Virgin Olive Oil rub, just to open the pores and clean out the dirt, then I follow up with a sugar and EVOO scrub or I newest staple is Equate Blemish & Blackhead Control Apricot Scrub ( yes!! Walmart brand, I’m a fan of the wal-meeze).

What moisturizer are you using?
It took so long to find a moisturizer, I honestly haven’t used any moisturizer on my face until just last year. My moisture of choice is Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture Combination Skin

Do you use eye cream?
No eye cream for me.

‚̧ Makeup:
What foundation do you use?
In my make-up stash I have Bare Minerals Starter kit and as for liquid foundation I use Maybelline New York Fit Me Foundation with the matching Maybelline New York Fit Me Powder

How about concealer?
Yup. Neutrogena Skin Clearing Concealer in Buff 09

Do you know your undertone color?
Honestly I’m still learning, I believe I have that olive undertone, but anyone feel free to tell me what you think.

What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I LOVE FALSIES!! PERIOD

What brand of mascara do you use?
When I do where mascara, I grab my Maybelline The Colossal Mascara and for those nights out or fashionista days I will grab my Maybelline Illegal Lengths Fiber Extensions Waterproof Mascara

Sephora or MAC?
Um. neither (as of yet)

Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
Nope. Sephora Card? Yes

Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
I have an eye primer from ELF but I don’t use it because I rarely where eye shadow

For the face?
I have the Bare Minerals Primer, I don’t really use it though.

What is your favorite eyeshadow? (colour or shade?)
I’m a fan of neutral colors and pastels, but I am partial to the smokey eye look.

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Both. Liquid lasts longer, but using both at the same time softens things up a bit (ha ha Yeah I picked that up from one of the many beauty vloggers I follow on youtube)

What’s your favorite lipstick?
I’m still looking for THEE lipstick, I’m a fan of red (although I’m still looking for the “perfect” shade). I secretly want the Chanel Rouge Hydrating Shine, Allure, Allure Velvet

Do you like drugstore makeup?
Like my clothes I shop everywhere for makeup

Did you ever consider taking makeup classes?
I haven’t because whatever I may want/need to know in the moment I can find on Youtube

Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Hmmmm. I’d have to say poorly applied foundation, it that’s wrong anything added on top will just look even worst.

If you could leave the house using just one makeup item, what would you use?
LALALAA- LASHES

Could you ever leave the house without any makeup?
HECK YEAH, I love the skin I’m in (acne or no acne), it’s mine.

What do you think of makeup?
When applied properly it can look great and I give props to all the make-up artists and aspiring make-up artists, its a true art form.

‚̧Blogging:
How many hours a week do you spend writing/editing posts?
Let’s just say not enough and I’m a bit too critical of myself and my work. (I’m work in progress)

When is it easiest for you to blog?
I haven’t figured that out yet. I’m going to say morning for now.

What makes writing behind the computer comfortable for you?
My mind is always going. I constantly have ideas and there’s just not enough time in the day to get them all out on paper. I usually brainstorm unless I have something specific in mind that I want to talk/share.

How long does it take for you to prep a post?
For a simple post at least a day and I leave room for last minute changes.

Who is a blogger that you read who deserves more readers?
Besides myself, ha ha. Um, that’s a tough one there are so many, but I will have to say, SAY WAUGH?!. Could tell you what the blog is about but I rather you head over and see for yourself.

If you’ve noticed hair care is missing from this tag, it was never there and I didn’t add it because because I’m going to dedicate a whole blog post to my hair the the journey it’s been soon.

I tag everyone to do this tag! Feel free to leave a link to your post below, so I can check it out!

00 Seven

I know it’s Christmas Day but per usual I can’t get New Years off my mind. I’ve secretly wanted to dress in a tux to ring in NYE, but I have yet to do. Maybe 2013? I’m still thinking of what I may do to ring in the luck and unlucky for some number 13.
