Summer Nail Polishes

Manicured nails is always a must for me, especially during the summer since your hands and feet are always out. During the day I tend to look at my hands quite often and it's nice to see them all pretty and in good condition. During summer I love experimenting with different colored nail polishes like this purple jeweled-tone color I'm wearing today by Sinful Colors. I believe it's only $1.99 at the drugstore. I find that it does chip pretty fast but it doesn't bother me since I like to change my polish every 2-3 days anyway :) My new nail polish stand inspires me to keep changing up my color! Click here to see what it looks like. I am on the hunt for a higher end nail polish in this similar purple jeweled toned color, if you guys know of one let me know in the comments! :)

"Dream On" by Sinful Colors

Here are a few of my current favorite polishes. I tend to stick to mostly reds, nudes and pinks but will experiment with neons, purples and this light yellow from time to time. I am not a fan of blue or green nails however, they just don't look too good on me. But some people can rock the baby blue nail polish trend, jelly! Which one do you like? What are your favorite nail polish colors? Share below! :) 

A few of my current favorites!

Back in NYC

Hi guys, I've missed you! I'm back in NYC - I had LA withdrawal for a little while, but feel like I will be back there soon again :) The whole trip was amazing! Got to meet my viewers and go to meet YouTubers that I watched long before I had a channel, pretty darn surreal. Anyway I just finished editing my next video which will be a makeup tutorial on this look below. Decided to do a smokey eye with a hint of pink. I think it's perfect for a night out in the summer time. Girly meets edgy, my style exact! More pictures along with the tutorial will be up soon. Hope everyone is having a great weekend! XOXO

Brentwood

Spent the whole afternoon out and about in Los Angeles today visiting different places including Beverly Hills and West Hollywood. It was absolutely gorgeous! We also drove through Brentwood, which is where I want to live when I have my family. It is utterly pretty! We stopped at this place called Country Mart which had lots of really cute little stores, both brand names as well as unique boutiques, restaurants and cafes. We had a coffee from Cafe Luxx and walked around for about an hour. Then driving a little further through Brentwood we passed this gorgeous park right in front of the water and stopped to take some pictures. People were running there, walking with their kids - just so peacful and beautiful. Words can't describe how magical LA is! I would love to move here within the next couple of years. It is love 


It was super windy! But just breathtakingly beautiful :) Now I am heading out to dinner with my brother and a family friend. We are going to eat in Santa Monica right in front of the water. Tomorrow I am going back to NYC, excited to go back home to my apartment but will miss LA so much! I will be back again soon though :) Hope everyone is having a great evening! XOXO

Guru Dinner

Had a lovely dinner with gorgeous fellow YouTubers, Andrea, Jennifer and Camila in downtown LA last night. How gorgeous are they?! It is so crazy and fun to meet them all in person. They are so nice and super talented. What a fun and surreal day! :)

My LA Meetup!

Had such a nice time yesterday meeting some of my viewers from LA! I had been looking forward to it for weeks! We met at 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica in the Dining Deck which had a great open space with seating. I was super excited (and a little nervous) to meet everyone. My younger brother, Nick came along and took some photos & filmed a few parts - thanks Nick :) Everyone was so nice, sweet and all gorgeous! It was such a nice experience. A lovely viewer called Monique, drove 2.5 hours all the way from San Diego!! :) So amazing. And I got a little card and present from Daniela - thanks girl! We spent about an hour talking & taking photos upstairs and then we walked around the Promenade and got ice cream & drinks and just talked and got to know each other. We spoke about everything from YouTube to life in New York to skincare. So fun being around girls who all have the same interests :) 

In the car on the way to 3rd street! Was so excited :) 
 
 
It was perfect! Thanks to everyone for coming :) Love you all

Malibu

Today my brother and I drove up to Malibu on the Pacific Coast Highway, and I think I repeated "this is so freakin' gorgeous" at least 20 times! It took us about half an hour to get there and it was such a nice drive by the ocean. We had lunch right by the beach and watched people swimming and laying out in the sun. Very relaxing, a totally 180' from New York :) It's a nice change! 

Tomorrow afternoon I'm finally having my meetup! I can't wait, have been thinking about it this whole trip :) Will post some pictures from the meetup tomorrow evening! Hope everyone's having a great weekend! XOXO
