What the rain..

There is no point in having a nice lens when you can’t use it. Looks like I have to revert to the basic lens for the tripod pics. Why does everything bad happen to me?

I love these jeans. They are a size 0. I am not a size 0. So these babies make me feel sooooo good. They are also getting a little big from wear. I’m just going to pretend I’m getting skinnier despite the 8 pounds…and that I really am a size 00. (Yeah, right.. My butt would never let me.)
I think I’m going to lengthen these jeans a tad by redoing the hems. I like the “I can’t see your shoes” look. Mostly because I always wear my clog sandals with these jeans and I don’t like looking at my toes…because feet are gross.

Don’t let the blue skies and sunshine fool you. I drove home in a torrential downpour. Have you ever heard that L.A. people are scared of the rain? WELP, it’s true. I think most of them are afraid they’re going to melt.
I’m wearing a red beanie (c/o SLiM Motif – buy it!), JCPenney tan trenchcoat (free with gift cards), JCPenney gray buttondown shirt (free with gift cards), secondhand Gap flared jeans ($9), Old Navy brown belt ($10 – buy it!), and Target clog sandals (gift from my in-laws) with JCPenney black bag(free with gift cards).

Lipo in a Box Review & Giveaway (CLOSED)

Please say hello to my newest sponsor, Lipo in a Box! I know what you’re thinking – why did this beautiful petite Korean woman agree to be sponsored by a shapewear company? Well, just so you know, Lipo in a Box isn’t just one brand…. It is really three! – Lipo in a Box, Go2 Bras, and Underology Skin Care. But that still doesn’t answer your question. Let’s just say what you see on this blog doesn’t show all my little bumps and lumps because I mask them so perfectly, you see.

Lipo in a Box have basically been featured in every way possible – QVC, Glamour Magazine, MORE, First for Women, “O” Magazine, The TODAY Show, The EARLY Show, The VIEW, and the OPRAH Winfrey Show. (Um, can someone tell me how I can get my blog on all these?!?) They are being featured in InStyle Magazine this month so watch out for that. These products have also been featured twice as New York Times best sellers by former fashion editor for Glamour Magazine, Charla Krupp, as “How Not to Look Old” and “How to Never Look Fat Again.” And come on… If you’ve been watching TV or reading magazines for the past 10 years, you know the world is trying to figure out these secrets. I’m not waiting until I start getting wrinkles and my metabolism collapses on itself. I’m preparing myself now!!

Besides all these big names and features, they also donate a percentage of profit every year to Soles4Souls, the YWCA Nashville Domestic Violence Center, and for breast cancer research. I love businesses that give back to the community.

REVIEW

They sent me a few of their products to review for myself:  the high waist brief with legs, tinted SPF moisturizer, and a hydrating serum.

Even if you’re petite like me, you’ll probably have a few problem areas. For me, that is my tummy. No matter what I do, I have a little pooch…even when I haven’t eaten yet. (No, I’m not pregnant.) When I put the high waist brief with legs on, the first thing I noticed was my pooch was gone!! And then I ate French toast and bacon. Right after I ate, I looked down to evaluate the aftermath. You guessed it – still no pooch!!! You know we are all supposed to hold in our abs and stomach all the time, right? Well, I don’t – I let it all loose. This shapewear just answered your problem. You’re welcome.

Sorry, no review pics for the shapewear. Trust me, you don’t wanna see me that vulnerable.

I have very sensitive and combination skin and develop allergic reactions after a year’s use so even if I think something works, I always have to watch for new products to try, just in case. A lot of moisturizers I’ve tried either don’t moisturize my face enough or they give me oily skin because it’s too severe for me. After applying the serum during my morning routine, I found that it moisturized my dry areas and controlled my oily T-zone throughout the day. This is definitely a keeper. Tinted moisturizers was something I’ve always wanted to work for me. It would be so easy just to put it on and not have to apply more foundation and concealer but my face just won’t let me. I have red splotchy areas from past acne scars, current pimples, and around my eyes and nose. It didn’t cover the bigger red areas but it did give me an even application before applying my makeup.
