Wallet Reveal!

Remember when I posted here about wallet hunting? True to my impatient nature, I dragged Mr. Dubs to Louis Vuitton to pick up a new one this weekend! Surprise surprise- I went with one that is not only not on the list, but in a completely different style.

Ta-dah! I wasn't kidding when i said that I went for something that was completely off the list!


Monogram Empreinte





I completely fell in love with the soft leather and the imprinted monogram. It's so different from the other LV wallets that I own. My only gripe with this wallet is the bill compartment. I've always disliked compartments that run all the way down to the bottom of the wallet. It makes it hard to look for bills. I guess this makes it more versatile as far as what could fit in that compartment.

Another thing that I love about this wallet is it's compact size. I was initially looking for an envelope style wallet, but found that they were all gigantic. The Compact Curieuse is big enough to hold everything I need, but small enough to go into my smallest bags like the my Favorite PM and RM Mini Mac.The color is a bold choice for me, but it makes it so easy to find in a bigger bag.

Happy Tuesday!

OTR: Bey + Jay

When I heard that Queen Bey and Jay Z will be coming to SF, I knew I had to go see them. I saw Beyonce earlier this year and she was amazing. She put on such a great show and she looked and sounded #flawless.

Even though Beyonce was perfection, I couldn't help but feel that they lacked chemistry during the show. It was almost as if I was watching two concerts. I really hope that this is no indication to the divorce/cheating rumors. :(

Either way, the show was so awesome that I almost went back for a second night!

*I apologize for not taking too many pictures, I was honestly so caught up with the concert that I didn't think to capture more photos.




Here's my FOTD for the concert. I took this opportunity to wear a dark plum lipstick, something that I very rarely will do. In case you're wondering, this color is called Cyber from MAC.


Unfortunately, San Francisco was the last stop for North America for the On the Run tour. However, if you're in Europe, Queen Bey and her mister will be heading there in September!

Hairy Situation

I've always been known for my thick, wild and unruly hair. Don't believe me? Ask my middle school friends to describe me and I bet you that 9/10 would say my puffy hair!

Last August, I woke up with hair so bad that I decided to chop it all off. The results were mediocre and a year later, my hair grew right back to where it was. (On the plus side, my hair grows like wild weeds. I seriously need a hair cut every 2-3 months!)

Before I get into my latest hair venture, I just wanted to share a few hair products that helps with taming my hair.

1. The Wet Brush - I got this in my monthly PopSugar Must Have box. I'm not sure what's the deal, but somehow this brush can magically brush through my wet hair like no other brushes!

2. Organix Light Penetrating Moroccan Argan Oil -  Before finding this oil, I've tried a plethora of oils including MoroccanOil. I've always found that the other oils tend to weight my hair down and flatten it out. This oil is amazing. A little goes a long way and I've never hair issues with it making my hair flat.

3. Tangle Teezer - I gave this bug-like brush a try because it's been all over the blogosphere. If you don't have one, I suggest you to go buy one ASAP. This little sucker can get all the tangles out, no matter how horrifying!

4. It's a 10 Miracle Leave in Conditioner - I've actually started using the It's a 10 line of hair products and though it is on the ultra pricey side, it works wonders. If the rest of the line is too pricey for you, I'd suggest giving the leave in conditioner a try.
Hair Products I Love
I had this post in my drafts for the past week and before I could even finish it, I've already done it again and chopped off 10inches of hair! Shoulder length hair seems to be the trend right now and I've been dying to give it another try.

Here's what my hair looked like before I went in for the kill.
The end results! So far, I'm loving it. My head feels like it's 10lbs lighter and it seems to be much more manageable. This will probably the last time I chop off my hair like this in a while. I have a few wedding obligations going on next year and long hair just looks so much better in weddings. 


So there you have it, my hair story. What are some of your favorite hair products?
