Early Birthday Dream Wishes.

So my birthday is coming up...My 21st birthday !!! ha-ha It's a big one ! And its still about a month away but I am oh so excited :D I cant decide how I want to spend it ...I mean ideally I would go to Las Vegas[cliche'] and gamble, party and drink the night away...But I don't think that is going to happen :/ So then I thought maybe Oahu ? , but that isn't as intriguing ...Oh well I guess I will have to settle for a beach BBQ...yay lol.. Ne who I thought I would do a dream wish list :] hahaha hopefully my Joel will take a gander hehe :]





Oh how beautiful this Urban Decay Palate is :] It is limited edition so I worry about its availability :/ But this is a dream list right ? LOL :]


I really would love to try these bad boys out. But where would I wear them living on a island ?...And I dont want to die. But I never have owned a "grown up" pair of pumps, and I kinda really want these to be my first :D





Omg this camera is so sexy LOL , I recently used my friend Ash's SLR Nikon Camera and although it takes alot more skill to use the to just "Point and Shoot" I am in love. The pictures are so fuggin' beautiful ! And I love that I dont have to sit and edit for HOURS >_<

This is the Bobbi Brown Concealer and Foundation pallate...PLEASE ? lol omg its $250 but it would be oh so perfect for when I do makeup on clients. I dont have anything like this in my kit...oh birthday fairy lol



oh, I love you rings. So much...I think I want these rings so bad for obvious bad reasons...lol It would totally sum up my obsession with Twilight...and Im pretty sure I would wear them every friggin' day... LOL Im Just saying! Click HERE for the website :] I pretty much love almost everything they make lol so funky fresh :]


But what I really want is a Flower Tattoo on my arm...Ah but im so scared about jobs dis-liking my inkwork...I already have a sort of hard time with the one small tattoo...Oh ponder I am thinking a Poppy Flower because It is the California state flower which is where I was born and raised ! and I like this one because it has 4 bloomed flowers to represent my mother , brothers [2] and sister :] my family branch of flowers LOL what do you THINK!?!

Well thats all I can think of right now hahahahaha :] Thanks for reading !!!!

Simple Red Lips : Gabriella's Way

Hola friends ! So I made an easy red lips tutorial quite a while ago but since it was in a higher quality video format it took freaking forever to upload it to YouTube. I finally buckled down yesterday and uploaded it ! Im second thinking about this better quality stuff !! Let me know what you guys think! Is it worth the HOURS it takes to upload or were my other videos okay ??



Now I leave you with this picture... Its an old one maybe like a year-ish old...Should I grow my hair back long ? It seems my hair just keeps getting shorter and shorter and oh how I long for long hair hahah!! ~_~ Tell me your honest opinion !!!



Hugs !!

Throwdowns like The Throwdowns

So this last weekend I was given the opportunity to work backstage with this AMAZING band named The Throwdowns !! <--- Click their name to check out their band website! You will not regret it PROMISE :] I met the band a few months ago at a Barnes and Noble CD signing !! It pretty much started from there :] So Friday they opened up for Sammy Hagar !!! This was my first time doing makeup for a rock performance. I was a little nervous because i know they sweat alot :/ but it was a learning experience lol !! Here are some shots :] And Tara my friend and also fellow apprentice at Soleil Luna did the hair :]


Tara and I Watching The Throwdowns Soundcheck ...it was pretty amazing haha :D






Ended the first night with an awesome group shot ! Love these guys ! So much fun to be around ! The next night they were opening with the band Iration for 311 !!! Funny enough I was more excited to see The Throwdowns perform again and Iration then311 :] haha but 311 was pretty good too :] Here are some shots from that AMAZING night :]

I really liked this makeup look better , I think by the second show around I had a better understanding at what works and what doesnt :] LOL And I love an exaggerated eye look with a simple pinky nude lip !! So Smokin' LOLz

So much fun , she looked so beautiful ! I felt so proud lol ! And her hair was totally amazing too props to Tara <3 style="margin: 0px auto 10px; display: block; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 320px; height: 240px;" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_fjCrkBdKXIU/S8Y4zz3FccI/AAAAAAAAAWs/SPFfn3GEu3A/s320/P4100818.JPG" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5460114060979040706" border="0">
hahaha I didnt want to deal with the crowds so i just hung out right in front of them...let me tell you great view but damn my ears were ringing till the next day lol but totally worth it :]

So here is one of my outfit of the days :



hahah again sorry for the lame-o pose hahahahahaha as you may have noticed [or not] this is my favorite slouchy cardi from BP , shirt dress - f21 tanks BP , leggings from jeans warehouse , boots from a store that i cannot recall :/ but they are cute LOL

So I have a few videos im attempting to upload to YouTube but since they are better quality [ supposedly ] it takes freaking forever and who has 8 hours of their day to sit around and make sure the laptop doesn't go to sleep ?! i dont LOL But i also bought some new products so stay tuned for that !!

Stripes and Stuff

Happy Monday !!! As I unwind from a busy day , while Bob Dylan plays, I write in my blog...LOL Ne who I will start off this blog with the "OUTFIT OF THE DAY" woo hoo right ? hee hee



What I am wearing : H&M knit pencil skirt , Forever 21 Striped tank, Nordstrom Black Cardigan :] [fav] and Volcom Strappy sandals !!! I am seriously in love with this coral-ish pink color for spring ! Oh my so pretty :]

And on to the next part of my post , somewhat of a product-ish haul !!! Somethings that I will be trying out and letting you know how they work !! All the things that will be pictured I have bought myself and mostly from Walgreens, the salon I work at and Walmart :]

First Item is a Pearl Essential Masksheet this is from the brand THE FACE SHOP , I bought it at Walgreens, I havent seen it carried anywhere else. And it costs about $3.58. Great deal right ?I tried a different mask before a Lemon one so I thought I would try this one :D

Next item is another facial masque ...HOWEVER this one is super cool because you can peel it off ! I havent tried it yet but when I do you will know promise LOL This masque is a cucumber cooling masque that clarifies and renews skin :] This one was about $3.00 as well but its a large tube of it so it's a better deal.

Next is an Eminence Organic Skin Care Product , its all natural !! It is Lime refresh Tonique ! yay for balancing your PH in your skin :D So far I have been using this for a few days , and so far I love it lol ...This product is a little more pricey its $40.00 I know what your thinking...YIKES but this brand is worth it :]

BIO-OIL is next !! This stuff from what I have read is amazing ! It reduces the appearance of scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone ,helps aging skin and dehydrated skin. Sounds great right ? LOL i would say the only downfall to this product is that you have to use it twice a day and liberally massage it into your skin, this product says you have to use it for a minimum of three months before you see serious results...So I will let you know how it works haha !! This product normally is $15 dor the 2 oz bottle but I got it on sale at walgreens for $10!!

Next one is another Oil but this one is for your HAIR :] This is the wondrous Moroccanoil !! I have been using this in my hair and at the salon for quite a while now and let me say I AM A HUGE FAN ! This product is a leave in treatment for long term conditioning and instant SHINE ! And it isnt heavy on your hair at all ! TRUST ME :] this stuff is amazing use before and after styling. This small bottle .85 fl. oz was $20.00 I belive the more than double sized bottle is $45 :]


These next two products are makeup products from the Hard Candy Line. Now this line is new to me , but I have heard pretty good things about it ! It must have been new to our Maui Walmart because I have NEVER seen this brand here ! HEE HEE i was so excited to see all these neat products but I resisted and only got two things :] The first is a concealer pallate ! this was $8.37 as far as a review gotta wait for the next few posts for that so I can try it out :]




Im excited to try out the purple and green correction colors :]


okay this is what I was most excited about LOL !! PRESS ON EYESHADOW ! I know its not the most precise way to put on eyeshadow but hey I just wanted to try it out for myself ! I bought the Smokey eye set !....Video to follow :]

Hugs friends let me know if you have any questions on these products!!

Love love , Gabriella

Gemini


GEMINI...my astrological sign and the name of the boat we went on this Tuesday ! It was so meant to be :] hehe The boat was so much fun !!! At first I was kind of bummed that we weren't gonna go swimming or anything like that but once we got to the beach...IT WAS SO WINDY !! usually boats like catamarans dock on the shoreline so people can climb the latter up to the dock but because the water was so choppy and the wind was blowing hard we had to walk a mile down the beach so we could take a zodiac to the boats !!! BUT IT WAS SO WORTH IT !




I think the thing I was most excited about was to lay on the netting and watch the ocean surge under me as we glide through the waves :] Here is my Joel doing just that !!! LOL I was the camera person this trip so I had to take a quick shot !! HOW neat is this boat ? It was kinda AWESOME to just lay on the soft end of the boat especially because it's whale season out here in Hawaii !! So we saw some AWESOME whale action ! Oh how I love Humpback whales :]





Here are some shots of the Whales taken with my Cheapy ol' Water proof Olympus camera by our friend Naiwi , who was brave enough to sit right on the edge lol !!




How awesome is that ? This was the male escort of the pod showing off how big and tuff he is :] lol There was also the cutest baby calf doing little breaches but I was way to distracted to take pictures !! hahah On the way back to Ka'anapali on the boat Joel and I stayed up front and got SOAKED !! lol But it was so much fun ! And worth being freezing cold :]



Here I am all wet and salty :] hahaha !! What a beautiful sunset followed by some yummy !SUSHI!!! Ah what a fun day !! Now to eat the chicken Divan I just made for lunch !! I will do a makeup tutorial hopefully tonight using drugstore products so keep on the lookout for that !!

Salty Kisses !!
