Last night at the Santa Monica Pier ("Glow")

I was wondering what I was going to do last night. It was a Saturday night and nothing to do?! Shenanigans!! Then my friend Jen called me up and said, "Hey! There's this thing tonight, wanna go?"  And I said, "What thing?"  And she said, "You know, this thing! It's called Glow. It's like a beach party at the Santa Monica Pier."  So I said Booya, let's go!

I guess Glow is some annual art festival with all these light setups and..."artsy" things. Well we got down there and pretty much were like, "Where's all the art stuff?"  It really ended up just being a bunch of people at the beach. There was a lifeguard tower with foam coming out of it though, that was cool. But they blocked it off so we couldn't have a foam party unfortunately. I took a picture of that but I took it with my Diana camera so I'll have to wait to develop the film.

I took some cool pictures of the beach though, lol.

Afterwards we ended up going to a place called Bar One in Valley Village. I've been there a few times. They have $2 (really good, might I add) sangrias. We had more fun there than at the pier, which you can see in the pictures, lol.

Fun times as always in this crazy city. I will definitely miss Los Angeles when I move to Oregon, but there are always fun times to be had wherever I go :)

"...You can boil it, broil it, sautee it...shrimp gumbo, shrimp creole...."

You never know where you're going to end up, so always make the most of where you are.

Review - Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Extreme

Hope you're having a beautiful day Rockster friends!

Now that I've got things up and in motion on my blog, I'm going to be a doing a lot of reviews and things on here that I don't show on my YouTube channel. And here's the first review:

Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Extreme.
This stuff claims to plump your lips.

Here's what the site says:
  • The dramatic solution for full, smoochable lips.
  • See extreme results without professional treatments.
  • Micro-spheres with exclusive Hydro-Collagen Complex help boost fullness and shine to the extreme.
  • Spicy gloss enhances lip's natural color so they appear pinker, healthier and fuller.
  • Guaranteed Visible Results.
  • Dermatologist Tested.
Special Ingredients:
Hydro-Collagen Complex with Marine Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid capture and retain moisture contributing to the immediate dramatic effect.

So I decided to try it. I already have slightly big lips but I don't think them being more pouty can be a bad thing. I've tried other lip plumpers in the past with no results. Maybe it's because my lips are already a little bigger? Or maybe it's cuz the lip plumpers don't actually work?

When I took out the wand I saw it's very long and it's got a brush applicator instead of a felt tip one. I'd rather it have the felty one, I think those apply better. But this is clear so it doesn't really matter, I guess. It smells like a really sweet cinnamon smell. I can't really stand the smell of sweet stuff so it was a little bit overwhelming.
I put the stuff on and waited. There was the very slightest hint of a "tingle"? Maybe more like a stinging. But only in the slightest so it wasn't bothersome. The tingling didn't get any worse and just kind of faded after about 2 minutes.

I looked in the mirror and noticed that my lips had a little more color to them but they didn't look much bigger. The top lip looked maybe a little more pouty than usual but it was more like a "I have to look extremely close in the mirror and try not to just convince myself that this stuff is actually working" moment.

Here is a before and after:


So in conclusion, I don't think this stuff is worth the trouble. It didn't really do anything as you can see. It's up to you if you want to get it but I'd say save your money.

Keep smiling :)

Review - Brushlab Pure Ceramic Large Hair Brush

I'm really excited to get this brush! Why, you ask?  Well it's the perfect size for my bangs, of course!

I just received this brush. It's the Brushlab Pure Ceramic Large Hair Brush. *If you haven't read my other reviews on the brushlab products just search at the top, "Brushlab" in my blog and they should come up :)

It's $10.98 on the website.  This brush is ceramic and white colored, with a black handle.  It's pretty long, about 11", probably to do with the pointed handle. I've found the handle point really great for parting hair, especially if you're using it to make waves or curls and want to seperate sections, without having to use a seperate tool.

It's smaller than the pink/purple Ceramic Flow Thermal Round Barrel, which I love and still use.  That one's about 2" diameter, while the Large Hair Brush one is 1 1/2" diameter (I don't know why they call it Large when it's smaller, lol).  It's better for my teeny tiny bangs anyways :)

It's ceramic so it won't burn my hair
(sniff:sniff. No burning smell? Check! Nicely rounded bangs? Check!)

If you haven't checked out the products, there are a bunch of them and all the ones that I've received I like, I use all of them....honestly, I use ALL of them! =o)

You can also find all the Brushlab products at ULTA beauty stores if you don't want to buy online.
